Hirune Hime can be translated to “The Princess of Naps”. The show revolves around Miss Kokone Morikawa – a very sleepy young girl whose life takes a sudden turn once she meets an odd robot-like existence. The year is 2020 and everyone in Japan is hyper about the upcoming Olympic games. everyone but this young girl. Everyone knows her as the one who can sleep anywhere regardless of place and time, and this definitely doesn’t fit into the general feeling of overwhelming excitement.

The anime is expected to begin in 2017. No exact date is given at the moment.
