Dictatorial Grimoire is an all new three-volume manga series that reimagines characters straight out of the Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Much like Seven Seas’ bestselling Alice in the Country of Clover series, Dictatorial Grimoire puts an edgy spin on beloved classic characters, with a focus on Cinderella, Snow White, and Little Red Riding Hood. Each book in the trilogy is presented in an oversized edition that features impressive shoujo-styled artwork and colour inserts.
Grimm Otogi, a far flung descendant of the renowned Grimm Brothers, has always regarded the fairy tales his ancestors concocted as pure fiction. Unfortunately for the introverted half-Japanese teen, he is about to discover that the Grimm legacy is anything but pure...
Upon receiving a posthumous letter from the dead father he never knew, Otogi transfers to a new school and moves into an abandoned mansion as part of his inheritance. There, he finds a manuscript that reveals the truth about his ancestors: the Brothers Grimm made a deal with mystical beings known as the Märchen Demons, who now have a claim on Otogi’s life. With a dashing male Cinderella as his guide, can Otogi Grimm unlock the power of the manuscript and stop the fairy tale demons before they destroy him first?
For fans of Once Upon a Time and Fables comes a shoujo-styled manga series about the Grimm Brothers’ most notorious characters!
