What is Sacrificial Princess and King of Beasts about?
Sacrificial Princess and King of Beasts manga references classic fairy tale material often and invokes the nostalgia of stories like Beauty and the Beast. A war waged between humans and beasts ended with a difficult agreement. The King of Beasts and Demons, Leonhart, receives sacrifices from the humans to assert his dominion over his kingdom. He consumes human females, almost a hundred of whom he has already eaten.
The 99th sacrifice brought to him is a young human girl named Sariphi who does not seem to be scared of him. Nicknamed Sari, she is said to be the Queen of Beasts and is brought to Leonhart from the kingdom of Ozmargo, where very little human trace remains. Her optimistic self and lack of fear towards any demon or beast make her a curious person, as well as surprise Leonhart. He lets her roam the kingdom freely and thus begins a journey that will potentially change the fate of Ozmargo.
