‘Sacrificial Princess & the King of Beasts’ can be summarized as the anime version of ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ Despite adding a demon kingdom and a queer girl, the overall story doesn’t shift all that much.
As add-ons, you get some hidden plots to kill the beast king, Leonhart, and some mystic powers running amok.
The ‘Sacrificial Princess & the King of Beasts’ anime will be released in 2023. A confirmed release date isn’t out yet, but you can check out the latest trailer, which shows Leonhart in action.
The video shows Sariphi, the girl who was sacrificed to the King of Beasts. Soon, she will discover the beast’s secret and become his queen. The decision is not taken lightly by Leonhart’s followers, and a rebellion is brewing under the surface.
Corruption is on the rise, and only the feared Beast King can stop it. Can Sariphi save his life as well as his secrets?
A new visual was also revealed for the ‘Sacrificial Princess & the King of Beasts’ anime, and it shows Leonhart and his commanders along with Sariphi. The main characters are standing against the backdrop of the holy tree of the demon country.
