Hakurai no Kishi centers on king, knight involved in conflict over holy sword

The official Twitter account for Square Enix's Gangan Online web manga magazine revealed on Tuesday that Yasunobu Yamauchi launched a new manga titled Hakurai no Kishi (The Knight of White Thunder) on Tuesday. In the "quintessential fantasy of sword and sorcery, and of humans and beasts," a wise king named Carliga and a hero named Jack are enmeshed in a conflict over the Holy Sword, a relic of a great war. The sword will once again bring together the ambitions of two great nations, and a woman bandit named Zety will also become involved in the conflict.

Yamauchi previously drew the Daily Lives of High School Boys manga. Yamauchi launched the manga in Square Enix's Gangan Online website in 2009, and ended it in September 2017. Square Enix published seven volumes for the manga. Vertical licensed the manga in July earlier this year.

The manga inspired a television anime in 2012. NIS America released the anime on home video. The manga also inspired a live-action film adaptation in 2013.
