Go To

Princess Candle is a seinen medieval historical fiction Yuri manga by Ken'ya Suzuki, creator of Please Tell Me! Galko-chan. It stars Flora, a knight who is in love with Princess Skw'ah and has devoted herself to protecting her. When the wicked Queen and her Puppet King son exile her to St. Ylieu, a convent, to be rid of her, Flora begs to go with her and is allowed to do so. They spend their days in the convent until it is one day attacked by bandits and the men of Lord Swey, an ambitious noble who wants to force Skw'ah to marry him and take the throne for himself. It is up to Flora to protect her lady and save the kingdom.

  • Bawdy Song: Flora sings one in Chapter 3.5 that her mother would sing when drunk.
    Boy! Don’t fall for this girl!

    You know full well! Her tight pussy gets stretched!
