It will premiere this January

The official twitter account for the anime of Prince of Smiles has uploaded the new Tv ad which is as follows:

The project is a celebration of the 55th anniversary of Tatsunoko Productions.

Tatsunoko describes the story as follows (taken from Anime News Network):

“On a planet far from Earth, there is a kingdom full of smiling faces. Princess Yūki is 12 years old, and about to enter a sensitive age in a person’s life. Everyday, she cries, laughs, and sometimes, her heart throbs with excitement. All the while, she lives merrily in the royal palace.

Filling her days with color are her loyal vassals: her tutor Reira, Izana who assists in political affairs, the leader of the chivalry Harold … and then, there is her childhood friend and aide Joshua.

“Yūki! If you have spirit and guts, you can do anything!”

“…No, not this again! Joshua, be nobler!”

Stella is 17 years old and a capable, reserved soldier. However, she is always smiling ... for smiling is essential to living.

This is a story of two girls born on distant planets.”

Toshimasa Suzuki (Fafner: Heaven and Earth) is directing the anime at Tatsunoko Productions; Shinchi Inotsume (Persona 5: The Animation) is in charge of the scripts.
