Good stuff

The only real downside is that its a monthly manga so the updates are few and far between. Not only that, the story is VERY slow.

That said, the characters are great, the setting draws you in and rather than making the mystery upfront and obvious, the author uses sly wordplay and interrupting actions as a way of defecting obvious questions. There are no "you're not ready for that information" or "I'm not gonna tell you" response here, but then again what else is a lack of response...

From the author of Scrapped Princess!

Scrapped Princess is one of my all-time favourite. This series seems to be a comeback for the author into this kind of magic-fantasy story. As of chapter 2 not much of the main plot is revealed yet, but its pretty fresh so far and the characters are already very interesting. The author seems to like brother-sister fighter pair + one other girl; reminds me of Scrapped Princess.
One thing that amazes me is that this story has its own original language. Kinda like the elf language found in Lord of The Rings. Its called the Laake language. Such a feature really excites me as it adds much depth to the story and its world, making it more...alive.

Hopefully this will get an anime too just like Scrapped Princess.
Thanks VI scans for doing this, hope to see more~
