Synopsis

Located at the end of the world, the Kingdom of Ozmargo is inhabited by beasts of all shapes and forms, ruled by a fearsome nameless king. After a hundred-year war between Ozmargo and the neighboring human kingdom ended, a peace treaty was signed: every year, a sacrifice must be sent to be devoured by the king on the night of revelation.

Sariphi is the 99th and latest human sacrifice. Although frail-looking, she neither fears the king nor has a family or home to return to should she manage to escape from her impending demise. Intrigued by the audacious girl, the king lets Sariphi roam around the palace despite the disapproval of his advisor, Anubis.

Little by little, the king and Sariphi begin to warm up to each other, but the night of revelation is fast approaching. Unbeknownst to them, the fateful day unleashes a series of events that will change the course of destiny of not only Sariphi and the king but also of their respective worlds.

Niehime is one of the most underrated anime of 2023 and it’s an absolute shame. This show has one of the best female MCs in recent memory. Along with a fantastic cast, rich world, political drama and a very well written romance.

Admittedly, Niehime grew on me. I wasn’t in love with it from the start. I liked the world, but the age gap between the two leads was.. a bit odd to say the least. However, as they were both developed and more contextual information revealed I honestly forgot I was ever even upset about it. Life is not always black and white and context ...

By far one of my favourite manga and anime series of all time. It's an adorable and gorgeous story of two hurt people finding love in both themselves and the many friendships they grow. If you want a tooth-rottingly sweet romance between a 'monster' and a human this is more or less the pinnacle.

This is not really an angsty romance anime though, so if you're looking for some sweet sweet romantic pain this won't be your best choice, but I still think you'd enjoy it for the many other reasons for which this anime is great.

If you liked series like Akatsuki No Yona (Yona ...

I don't know what I was expecting. I started watching because I saw the rating was at 7.99 and I thought this story would be somewhat similar to "Mahoutsukai no Yome". As cliche as a story like "beauty and the beast" would be, I thought if it was a boring story then the art must be fantastic since something made the rating go up to 7.99.... but I thought wrong.


First, the art is just sub-par (4/10). Nothing unique. The 1st episode showed the motions of the characters being somewhat fluid, but just as expected, as soon as it reached the 2nd ep it turns all ...
