In a single day and night of fierce fighting, the Archduchy of Mongaul has overrun its elegant neighbor, Parros. The lost priest kingdom's surviving royalty, the young twins Rinda and Remus, hide in a forest in the forbidding wild marshes. There they are saved by a mysterious creature with a man's body and a leopard's head, who has emerged from a deep sleep and remembers only his name. Guin.

Guin Saga is the longest continuing single-writer's work in the world with total circulation exceeding 33 million copies. The series has inspired many other Japanese fantasy works such as Kentarou Miura's Berserk and Aquaplus' Utawarerumono.

Following her diagnosis with pancreatic cancer in 2007, Kaoru Kurimoto continued work on the series up until May 23, 2009 when she became too ill to write, and died three days later on May 26. In November 2013, the series resumed publication, with authors Yuu Godai and Yume Yohino alternating between penning the new volumes.

Vertical, Inc. published the first five volumes of the series in English from June 1, 2003 to May 13, 2008.
