The manga centers on Reishin Amō, a boy who, thanks to his mother’s remarriage, become part of a family that leads one of Japan’s leading business conglomerates. Unbeknownst to him, the company’s underworld business is that of assassination. His stepbrother Garaku is a psychopath who enjoys particularly sadistic ways of killing. Now Reishin and his sister Sarasa are Garaku’s new playthings.

The manga creator duo consists of Otoh Saki and Tomomi Nakamura. The pair ended their Samurai ga Tensei Shitara Idol ni Natta Hanashi (The Story of How a Samurai Was Reincarnated and Became an Idol) manga in September 2020. The duo launched the manga Monthly Princess in April 2019.
Viz Media published 13 volumes of naked ape’s Switch manga from its original 2002-2008 run. The manga inspired a two-episode video anime series in 2008 and 2009.
