1st volume of manga about villager who accidentally kills legendary hero released last Friday

Southeast Asian publisher Shogakukan Asia released the first volume of Subaruichi's The Legendary Hero is Dead! (Yūsha ga Shinda! Murabito no Ore ga Hotta Otoshiana ni Yuusha ga Ochita Kekka) manga in Anime Festival Asia in Singapore last Friday. Shogakukan Asia announced the title last Tuesday.

Shogakukan Asia describes the manga:

Touka is just your average (slightly perverted) farmer in the village of Cheza. While he daydreams about being a hero and getting the girl, the real hero, Sion, is out battling demons that threaten to invade the world! But one day, Touka accidentally kills the hero…?! With the Legendary Hero dead, who's going to save the world now?! Touka quickly buries Sion's body to hide the evidence, but wakes up the next day to discover he is no longer in his own body…!!

Subaruichi launched the manga in Shogakukan's Ura Sunday web comic magazine in December 2014. Shogakukan published the manga's third compiled book volume digitally in Japan on November 12.
