Wolf Girl and Black Prince (オオカミ少女と黒王子 Ōkami Shōjo to Kuro Ōji?) is a Japanese shōjo manga series written by Ayuko Hatta. It was adapted into a drama CD in 2013.[1] In 2014 the May issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine is announcing that a television anime has been green-lit.[2]

Plot[edit]

The story centers around Erika Shinohara, a vain 16-year-old girl who tells her friends about her romantic exploits, but she actually has no boyfriend. She claims that a handsome boy in a candid photo is her boyfriend, but it turns out that boy is a schoolmate named Kyōya Sata. She has no choice but to make him her fake boyfriend. Unfortunately, Sata may look like a sweet person, but he is actually an ultra-black-hearted sadist. Sata takes advantage of Erika's weakness and treats her like his dog.[3]
