Saliphie is the 99th female human sacrifice to be eaten for the King of the Beast and Demons, but despite that she is not in the least afraid since she has never had a family nor a home to lose, so she takes a positive attitude and no longer worries about being eaten.

The King finds her amusing and lets her stay by his side until the time of her death. This leads her to find out the truth about the King of the Beast and Demons, and she ends up as the King's Consort despite being a female human. This leads other beasts and demons to be mad, but the king being powerful enough they shut up.

This is how Saliphie turns to be the first human queen of the demons and beasts.

This is one of my favorite manga series I have seen including The Ancient Magus bride, which was my all time favorite. They may be similar in consept but the stories do differ greatly. The Ancient Magus Bride is more dark while this story is more light, pure, and adorable. Overall it is a very good manga and I hope to own my own copy for this series when I find it somewhere. So If you are fan of the Ancient Magus Bride, love cute fluffy romance, and love beauty and the beast type relationships then defiantly go check it out!! You may read more

I can really say that I enjoy this. I found it to be adorable and cute. A lot like beauty and the beast but with a bit of a twist. I am looking forward to reading more. It's a lovely little romance between a girl and a beast. He has a secret that no one knows about. He protects her, and loves her. The Demon King is pretty bad ass, super strict and doesn't like to be pushed around.

Saliphie is a pretty spunky chick who accepts her fate. She is super outgoing and will probably make you laugh with some of the stuff she read more

A good inspiration for stories is to look back at the classics - in this case: Beauty and the Beast. Sacrificial Princess (as I'll be calling it now, cause it's faster than the full title) is a very character-driven story that focuses on a human thrown into the world of beasts. Saliphie is originally a sacrifice to be killed by the king of beasts, but ends up living in their world as one of them.

One of my favorite things about the story from the get-go is the connection between humans and beasts. There's a history of violence and fear between the two groups, and this read more

At first when I read this story i thought it was a short beauty and beast story that is until politics came into the picture and then it spiraled from there. From Saliphie/Sariphie struggling to stay by the King's side and become his queen and vise versa with the king trying to make have his people accept her as their queen. You can see the many trails and obstacles they go through, even if there are many cliques through out the story and their adventure they still hold onto each other dearly and embrace what life has to throw at them. from my last read read more
