Enter a whole new world of fantasy and adventure: the watery land of Marmundo, where kings rule tiny islands scattered throughout the vast sea and stray ships really can fall off the face of the planet!
To protect this land from evil, great armored Aqua Knights patrol the seas mounted atop noble Orcas seeking adventure and combat. One such Aqua Knight, Ruliya of Perla, washes ashore on a mysterious lighthouse island after being caught in a storm. Little does she know that this tiny island would be the beginning of an adventure that would take her to the far edges of the world and beyond!
In This Volume: On the remote island of Faro, not far form the World's Edge, a stormy night brings a visitor to the lighthouse keeper Arrabarus and his young son Ashika. When they find a suit of armor washed up near the shore, they open it to discover a beautiful woman who happens to be questing Aqua Knight Ruliya of Perla, far off her intended course.
When the megalomaniacal genius Alcantara steals a magical light sphere from Faro and kidnaps Ashika, Ruliya has no time to lament the past, she must set off to rescue the boy and maintain the delicate balance between the living and the dead!
Written and drawn by Yukito Kishiro.
