    Title (JAP): 巡検使カルナー サスカティウ編I : 星神の歌人
    Author: Sei Takekawa

    The header is not the actual name of the book but it is a spin off of the classic light novel 'The Weathering Continent'. Production I.G made the original series into a (dull) movie so it must have been popular at the time. Please excuse me for my google translate story description.

    10,000 BC. Atlantis, the super-ancient continent, was heading into turmoil with the collapse of the previously prosperous Republican Union. The time is called the 'Silver Age'. At that time, there lived a beautiful young man named Karuna. His mission, the messenger, was as severe as "death." Karuna's fierce journey, with this burdening task, now begins. A fantasy world colored with magic and spirits.

    I'd love me some old stuff. Including this and the parent series.
    Unfortunately, there's not much hope, as older series tend to underperform when it comes to sales.

  • Thanks Wellwisher! With such cool artwork, I thought it could be passable and might become a niche seller :) some people might like a bit harder fantasies. The original work is very long but this is only a few volumes. I leave you with the best thing to come out of the anime imo ... this cool tune!
