In Ou no Kemono, an Ajin girl named Rangetsu had her brother taken to be the servant of Prince Tenyo, where he died because of violent royal intrigue. In order to avenge her brother, Rangetsu disguises herself as a man and becomes the Prince’s servant. Ou no Kemono is seriealized in Shogakukan’s Cheese! magazine since 2019 and has been collected into five volumes as of this writing.
