The third full trailer and a new visual have arrived for the Sacrificial Princess and the King of Beasts anime, which is on the way to adapt the manga by Yu Tomofuji. In addition to showing off more of what’s in store, the trailer reveals that the adaptation will kick off its broadcast on April 19.
Chiaki Kon (Sailor Moon Crystal season 3) is directing, with Seishi Minakami (A Certain Scientific Railgun) on series composition and Shinya Hasegawa (Golden Time) adapting character designs at anime production house J.C.Staff.
Yen Press publishes the series in English and Crunchyroll previously announced plans to stream the series as it airs in Japan. Here’s the official synopsis:
The King of the Beasts and Demons regularly receives female human sacrifices to eat in order to assert the dominance of his people over the human race. However, for the 99th sacrifice, the human girl brought to the capital, Sariphi, intrigues the Beast King. In fact she isn’t afraid of him or any other beast and even accepts her death without begging or crying as she has neither home nor family to return to if she were released. The King finds her intriguing and let her stay at his side as his consort despite being human. This is the story of how Sariphi will become the queen of the demons and beasts.
