Description
From Baka-Tsuki:

Chris was a boy who was cursed with the Brand of the Beast that devoured the fates of the surrounding people. His life changed when he met a girl when he was wandering a corpse-laden battlefield as a young mercenary. She, Minerva, appeared before his eyes waving a huge sword in clothes of pure white. With the power of foresight and overwhelming swordsmanship, she was a legendary swordswoman feared as a grim reaper. Smiling in slaughter and weeping in sleep, that was the heavy burden shouldered by the girl. That fateful night, Minerva's fate of being killed by Chris was distorted by the brand. The two souls destined to be in the company of death met in the depths of despair. In the symphony of blades and blood, the boy and girl's beautiful legend of sorrowful magnificence is born!

A good concept wasted by falling into stereotypes.

I don't know about this series. The first chapter really has the potential and hope for this series to be unique, but then it regresses to your typical shounen/romance nonsense directly after. The main character is too one dimensional, ruined by the authors desire to give him a "normal teenager" personality when it simply doesn't make sense at all in the context of his backstory.
As I said, as the series turns into a generic shounen/romance the potential for meaningful storytelling that is in the "beast" is more or less ignored, and quickly focuses on other things with the most interesting aspect of the story quickly fading into the background. Also worth mentioning is that so far the character interaction has been disappointing repeatedly coming across cliches and "mind reading". There are other gripes I have with this particular series but as it's still in such an early stage I'll hold off for now but I doubt I'll read more than this 1 volume.

Well,I can't say much about this series at the moment since there's only been 5 chapters translated so far,but this series shows us good promise.
For starters,Chris is not the normal week shounen hero who gets his but kicked at the begining and then trains like there's no tomorrow to beet the villain for his nakama(not yet atleast).Both leads are strong from the begining(for an example, both leads can fight against an army single handedly and slughter them all).But after their meeting some circumstances that made the two suffer individually vanishes,at the same time making both of them somewhat vulnerable.After that they heavily rely on each other for comfort.That's the basic platform of the Novel.
(Chris' background is somewhat similar to Ryner lute BTW)
In conclusion,This is worth giving a shot.It's different and I think you want be disapointed if you like action,romance stories.
