Description
From: Easy Going Scans

The "Dark Flower" is a sword of legend; a horrible legend of a gruesome slaughter three hundred years past. Lilia, a small girl from a village threatened by the bandit group whose leader has obtained this cursed weapon is now searching for help to save her city. Unfortunately, she is spotted by the bandits and can only run for her life. But, just as she is about to be caught, she runs into a young and seemingly weak traveller... is this coincidence?

The Winner of the 14th Square Enix Manga prize.

I think that this has all it needs to become a great series. I really wouldn't mind if the girl ends up following him after a few years...Lol. I already have a great idea.

The art is divine for shounen.

If only it wasn't a oneshot!

This release has very good art and introduces some likeable characters. The beginning is similar to a fairytale with a once upon a time technique. The fairy tale is dark and gory, which makes a very good backdrop for the rest of the tale, which sets up a main character, in some ways similar to Rurouni Kenshin and a save the damsel in distress from the "bad guys" framework .

It is not perfect, in fact, I was hoping, after the intro bit for a dark seinen story... but despite the undercurrent don't expect any angst in here. Everything is very positive and shounen style in this oneshot

This appears to be the author's first publication and it demonstrates his skills admirably. I am looking forward to anything Shirasaya might release in the future!
