So far, 12 collected volumes of the Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle manga have been published in Japan, and an English language version of the series is also published by Viz Media, who describe the story of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle as follows:

Things go from bad to worse—for her captors—when some of Princess Syalis’s schemes end in her untimely—if temporary—demise and she chooses the Forbidden Grimoire for her bedtime reading…
