Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Saturday, June 23, 2018
I got this softcover at Barnes and Noble today. Sounds like an amusing twist on the princess-captured-by-demon-king - the captive princess is more interested in finding ways to have a good sleep than in fretting about her captors.

Since the bad guys are dedicated to keeping her safe, they seem happy to let her wander the castle, bribe the guards, and generally do what she wants - and even when they try to stop her, she neatly gets around them. There are lots of cute/funny/weird bits here, from the way she gets new pillow stuffing by brushing the little-devil-bears to her technique for beheading the living-bedsheet-spectres to get new bedding.

We also get glimpses of the rescue party, led by a bold young knight who... doesn't seem to be all that clever, and who has no idea that the princess is doing fine all by herself. Indeed, it isn't clear that the demons are really all that demonic when you get down to it...

[There's a TV Tropes page on the series, with some entertaining tidbits.]
