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.

It kind of gets kind of better from there. Well, at least you can start comparing what happens in it to the actual game.

It's still a pretty average manga, though. And Al is a Mary Sue.

Awesome stuff as usual~

Raws: Vincent/ChinaFE (vols. 1-9), Minaya (chapter 37)
Major proofreading: Vincent, Hinata
Minor proofreading: Laylea, DMA Johnshon, AceNoctali

I've read the first two volumes and am enjoying it so far.
1. I'm also guessing Al's sword is effective against Dragons
2. I'm fine with that, as long as no playable characters from the actual game die. And as long as Percival is awesome

Just one thing, if this is a manga based off of FE6, how was FE6 able to include references to the manga?

2. I'm fine with that, as long as no playable characters from the actual game die. And as long as Percival is awesome

1. That, too. I put that there because I've seen comments like "what? Al kills a dragon with one stroke? Baaaaawwwwwww."
2. I don't think any of the playable characters die, although a few (like Hugh, Zeiss and Garret) are completely absent. The game characters are usually left on the background (sometimes literally - Ellen appears in one scene, and isn't even named), but Percival actually has a rather big role when he joins.

Just one thing, if this is a manga based off of FE6, how was FE6 able to include references to the manga?

I believe it started being produced slightly before the game release. Notice how the first chapters pretty much have nothing to do with the game's plot.

As he's already said in this thread, he probably won't touch it before Monday.

College > manga scanlation, people. No point in being impatient. Furthermore, chances are I'm going to run out of material soon, so any lateness would seldom be a big deal.
