The Sacred Blacksmith Manga to End in 2 Chapters
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Artist Kōtarō Yamada posted on his Twitter account on Sunday that his manga adaptation of author Isao Miura's The Sacred Blacksmith light novels will conclude in the next two chapters. If the manga is not delayed, it will end in Monthly Comic Alive's December issue on October 27. The manga's ninth compiled book volume previously noted that the manga's 10th volume would be the last.
Seven Seas is releasing the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
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 Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Alive magazine in 2009, and Kadokawa shipped the ninth volume in February 2015. Seven Seas shipped the ninth volume last November.
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 released the anime in North America.
