posted on by Alex Mateo
Kadokawa announced on Tuesday a new television anime based on author yuin and illustrato mini's Surgeon Elise (Gekai Elise, or Oegwauisa Elise in Korean) medical reincarnation fantasy web novels and vertical-scrolling manwha.
mini drew an illustration to commemorate the announcement:
Kumiko Habara (I'm the Villainess, So I'm Taming the Final Boss) is directing the anime at Maho Film. Deko Akao (Komi Can't Communicate) is handling series composition. Yūko Watanabe is designing the characters.
The anime's story follows Aoi Takamoto, who was once an evil empress named Elise before being executed by her husband Linden. When Elise is reincarnated into the modern world as Aoi, she becomes a surgeon to atone for her mistakes. However, after she dies in a plane crash, she is once again reincarnated back into her former life as Elise, 10 years before her execution. She avoids marrying Linden this time around to prevent a tragedy. With her medical knowledge, she decides she wants to become a doctor again in this life.
yuin and mini launched the manwha on KakaoPage in 2017. Tappytoon publishes the English version as Doctor Elise: The Royal Lady with the Lamp. The series ended in February 2021. There are 10 total volumes for the manwha and four volumes for the novels. The manwha's seventh compiled book volume shipped in Japan in February 2022, and the eighth volume will ship on March 3.
