Akagami no Shirayukihime is written by Sorata Akizuki and serialized in the monthly Lala Magazine since 10 August 2006. It tells the benevolent tale of Shirayuki (CV: Saori Hayami) and her adventures in the Kingdom of Clarines.

Shirayuki was once a citizen of Tanbarun Kingdom whose prized beauty was known throughout the land. Her beauty resonated and captured the attention of the current prince of the Kingdom. The prince, Prince Raji Shenazard (CV: Jun Fukuyama), orders Shirayuki to become one of his concubine.

Wanting to flee her fate, Shirayuki escapes into the neighboring country, Clarines Kingdom. On her way, she meets Zen (CV: Ryouta Ohsaka), a wandering boy who helps her escape after healing him. What fate awaits Shirayuki in the new Kingdom? Will Shirayuki lived happily ever after?

The manga is ongoing and just released its 13th compiled volume last 3 April 2015.
