Viz Media licensed the comic, and it describes the story:
Seth is an aspiring wizard living in a pastoral village under the watchful eye of his mentor. Like all wizards, he is an “infected”—one of the few people that has survived contact with a Nemesis, creatures that fall from the sky and contaminate all they touch. His encounter gave him powers and led him to choose a path that seemed to be perfect—to become someone who hunts and fights the Nemesis. But Seth longs for a quest that goes beyond the simple hunt for monsters. He wants to find the place they come from, Radiant, and destroy it. Along with other wizards, he travels the world in search of Radiant, under the sinister eye of the Inquisition…
Valente launched the comic in 2013, and Asukashinsha began publishing the comic in Japan in 2015 as part of its Euromanga Collection imprint. The comic's ninth volume shipped in France on May 25, while the eighth volume shipped in Japan on April 25.
