The Sacred Blacksmith Manga Adaptation to End in 10th Volume

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Adaptation of fantasy light novel series that inspired anime began in 2009

The final page of the ninth compiled volume of Kōtarō Yamada's manga adaptation of Isao Miura's The Sacred Blacksmith light novel series lists that the manga will end in the tenth volume. The ninth volume was published in Japan on Monday.

Seven Seas describes the story of the manga:

Like her father and grandfather before her, Cecily Campbell has entered the knighthood and joined the ranks of the Knight Guards of Houseman. Eager to do her heritage proud and defend her city, Cecily rushes to the marketplace to stop a madman from terrorizing the populace. She quickly realizes, however, that she is hopelessly outmatched and ill-prepared for an actual fight. A lone figure named Luke Ainsworth swoops to the rescue, a swordsman and blacksmith of much renown, who will repair the broken sword Cecily has inherited from her father and take her down a road of perilous adventure beyond her wildest dreams.

Yamada began the manga in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2009. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the manga for North American release, and will ship the seventh compiled volume on March 3. Miura began the original light novel series in 2007, and ended the series in 2013 with a total of 16 volumes.

Miura's light novel series also inspired a 2009 television anime series, and Funimation releases the anime in North America.
