The plot of the manga Sacrificial Princess and the King of Beasts takes around a very brutal ritual that happens within the palace of the Beast King. The King of the Beasts and Demons regularly receives female human sacrifices. Not just to kill and throw around but to feast upon them properly. This is a ritual that takes place every day in order to show Beast King’s power and dominance over the human species. This cycle goes on until Sariphi, a human girl, is bought to his palace. She was the 99th sacrifice to the Beast King but seemed very different from other sacrificial girls. Unlike other girls, Sariphi didn’t cry or beg to be released as she didn’t have a home or family to return to.
She was not afraid and accepted her fate without any further questioning or struggling. This made the Beast King highly curious about the girl as he didn’t kill her. Now Sariphi was allowed to stay by the side of the beast king as his consort. The story will take you around the life of a human girl and how she became the queen of beasts and demons.
