ABOUT THIS MANGA
Hasha no Tsurugi is a side-story/retelling of the events of Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi. The main character is Al (or Alle, as of the official Japanese canon... but whatever), a 15-years old teenager who leaves his father in the mountains and sets off in a journey to find out what he wants to do, custom sword in hand. Along the way, he makes some friends, teams up with Roy and does stuff.
This is a serious manga (as in, not a parody). It has 11 volumes. A few notes:
1. The mamkute in Chapter 1 is probably a lv1 one, that's why he's killed off so easily.
2. This manga is pretty much a side-story until volume 4, and a retelling from then on. It also follows a different route from the game. And yes, even though the game has multiple routes and endings.
3. If you read "champion", think Hartmut. Maybe I should have used Supreme Ruler/King, but now is too late to change that.
4. Flying dragons = wyverns, swordsmen = myrmidons, etc. Except for some class and weapon names, I'm following the English canon. I know, I should have fully followed it from start, but... well, whatever.
HOW DOES THIS WORK
If you want to redistribute this translation for some reason, go ahead. Just host it yourself. Unpleasant things may happen if you don't (namely, broken links and false files - it has happened before, don't try your luck). Also, resist the temptation of zipping LQ and HQ releases of a given chapter together. It makes no sense.
