(Ask the sleep professional!), And will debut via the anime's website on November 20.

Road to a Good Night's Sleep, with the participation of the voice actors Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (the voice of the Demon King) and Hiro Shimono (the voice of the Hero Akatsuki), where You can learn about sleep and compete to see which of them can improve their "ability to sleep." The show airs on AT-X television at the end of each episode of the anime, however, some trailers are available through YouTube.
Finally, FRANCE BED also plans to launch a limited edition product line to celebrate this collaboration. The products will be available soon. On the other hand, the series has been on air since last October 5 in Japan.

Oyasumi's Maoujou Synopsis
Shhh! Princess Syalis is trying to get a good night's sleep. A long time ago, when people and demons coexisted, not in total harmony of course, a demon king kidnapped a human princess and locked her in his castle. Dispossessed, the princess's subjects thought incessantly of a solution ... until the hero emerges to lead the princess's rescue mission! While waiting for her knight in shining armor, what should an imprisoned princess do? The bat-winged teddy bears aren't bad, but their cell is so boring! Then, she will decide to spend the long hours sleeping, if only she could make herself comfortable ... if only she did not suffer from insomnia ...
