posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kōji Hasegawa and Panda Ozawa published the last chapter of their manga adaptation of Ryo Mizuno's Louie the Rune Soldier novels on November 23. The manga's fifth volume is slated for release on January 15.
Hasegawa and Ozawa launched the manga series in Kadokawa's Comic Clear website in July 2016. Hasegawa drew the art, while Ozawa wrote the script. Kadokawa published the manga's fourth compiled book volume on July 14.
Mizuno's original novels center on the titular Louie, a member of the Ohfun Mage's Guild who lacks talent in magic. His brawn and natural physical aptitude constantly lead him to resolve situations with his strength, although he is technically a mage. Merrill, Genie, and Melissa recruit him to fill out their adventuring party.
Mizuno's 21-volume series ran from 1997 to 2012. The story is set in the same world as Mizuno's Record of Lodoss War, as well as other works in Group SNE's Sword World role-playing game franchise. The novels inspired an earlier manga by Jun Sasameyuki, as well as a 2001 television anime. ADV Manga published the first four volumes of Sasameyuki's manga, and ADV Films released the anime.
