One hundred years ago, there was a great war between humanity and beastkind. Once the war ended, an annual tradition was proposed where a female sacrifice would be taken from the humans to be eaten by the King of Beasts. This tradition continues on as the 99th sacrifice, 15-year-old Sariphi, is taken from her village to the kingdom of Ozmargo, a miasma-filled realm where beasts live and human entry is forbidden.

But Sariphi is not like the previous sacrifices. Her optimism and lack of fear towards the beasts and her fate surprises the otherwise fearsome King. Intrigued by the sacrificial princess and her history, he allows her to freely roam around the kingdom until the night of revelation despite the potential outrage. Little do Sariphi and the King know, their short time spent together has slowly set the stage for something unimaginably different for the future of Ozmargo.

Great romance, good drama. Some world building. A bit of violence and blood. Very cute, a wonderful read. Definitely recommend.

Story: 9/10
Look, this is a rehash of beauty and the beast with plenty of clichés to boot. However, what it lacks in originality it makes up in execution.

We see Sariphi gain more allies and open up people to the idea of peace with humans however there are other issues to ensure it doesn't get repetitive. However it feels like problems are ...

Shoujo isn’t exactly my favourite genre. Still, once in a while I give it a try, and once in a whole there is a title that surprises. Sacrificial Princess is one of those.

What’s interesting is that usually when a shoujo manga is good, it’s because it’s closer to other demographics and is shoujo more on a technicality. In this case though, it’s really a pure shoujo manga, simply with actually good writing. And by that I don’t mean that the author added sex and violence to make it appear more mature (I’m looking at you Nana). No, the characters and the themes are the main ...

This manga is a simple yet delightful fantasy shoujo that will be enjoyed by both fans of shoujo manga and fans of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. Although it does not attempt anything new within the genre and occasionally dives into classic shoujo tropes, it is still a fun read.

Story: 7/10
If you are looking for a revolutionary fantasy manga that tries to do new things, then I would not recommend this; however, the story is still fun and engaging. The setting is fantastical and immersive, and the characters all have their own charms. I personally would have gone in a slightly different ...
