Scan of the fourth novel :

Synopsis from myanimelist forum :

Once upon a time, there was a tragic war, in which the power of the devils was involved. After the war, the devils' power was banned and the world was restored to peace. Cecily Campbell is a knight, who has been looking for a blacksmith to repair her old sword given by her father. One day, she saw a man fighting with a ruffian who used the tabooed devil's power. The man defeated him with one blow of his weirdly shaped sword. The man turned out to be a blacksmith called Luke. The fateful encounter was the beginning of the adventure.

Thanks for the info kyouray :)

Some of Luna's (the illustrator) works are adult men's manga: (his works appear in the adult men's manga magazine Comic Penguin Club), NSFW, be careful:

let's see, a red-haired female wielding a dangerous and sharp weapon on each of the covers... and meido outfits... :p

the story looks interesting... and I like the colour illustrations, especially the second one. :p

Same_Shark 2009-01-19 19:12

Looks really cool and sexy! Let's hope Ali Project doesn't mess that up!

jcdranzer 2009-01-19 19:43

Which animation studio do you think its gonna be ??

I believe the torrents for this "future" anime won't get hosted on animesuki....since its most likely gone be an MFI work. >>

Same_Shark 2009-01-20 06:20

Hopefully not XEBEC, Bee Train, or Gonzo.

jcdranzer 2009-01-20 09:37

I'm thinking it could be Zexcs....but then again Studio Deen could do it or even SHAFT. ;)

Gonzo isnt that bad these days, they come out with something good now and then :D

But yeh, this manga sounds interesting. Shounen adventure type I guess?

Amidst the fact that Gonzo was hit by the financial crisis, their animes are still all pretty good! :)

I read the prologue of the manga and found it pretty interesting, so I think I'll keep a eye on this one.

This looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing the animated version. Anyone have an idea to when it should be released?

Westlo 2009-06-22 04:40

Can You Moe Blog has a link with some screen shots for this, PV coming out very soon, looks like this will be airing in Fall I guess. Can You Moe blog says "Apparently, animation production of this show is done by Manglobe" which is pretty awesome if true.
