The Legend of Sakura Hime is an ongoing shōjo manga currently being serialized in the monthly manga anthology Ribon in Japan. The story follows Sakura, a teenage girl who's been engaged to the prince Oura ever since she was a child. Trouble is, it turns out she's also a descendant of the demon Princess Kaguya. It's up to her to fulfill her role by wielding the mythical sword Chizakura and destroying all demons that threaten to harm the world she knows and loves. Upon learning her true identity, however, certain forces, including Prince Oura, would rather see her killed!
|Lots of awesome action shots, including blood and even death, which is pushing the |
envelope for a girls' anthology like Ribon!
|Prince Oura's brother? Cousin? So memorable I've already forgotten.|
He hides his true feelings for Sakura under an easy-going facade.
Let it be known that I have a weakness for playboy male characters.
