A man returns to his ancestral hometown in the hopes that he can break a curse.
A short story by the author of Blade of the Immortal.
Another isekai oneshot, written by the lovely Uguisu Sachiko! This time a joint with Death Toll scans, even though the staff is the same… At this point in time I’m considering looking for more isekai to work on just to keep this trend going.
And from the translator:
Short post from Uguisu on her personal blogpost about the origins of the story: http://blog.livedoor.jp/uguisu_sachiko/archives/51892725.html
“The work was a result of me accepting a request from an editor at UltraJump who asked me if I could, “Write an isekai reincarnation story”, however… I have absolutely no experience reading works in this genre, so this was the ultimate result of my hard work (Laughs). From the very first moment the editor saw the name, his impression of the story was, “This doesn’t feel like an isekai whatsoever”. Hahaha, thank you very much for reading the work.”
[Response to a commenter]: “It turns out that there are a lot of rules in isekai stories, like the main character being virtually invincible and such… Since I had no idea about any of this, I just wrote whatever I felt like. I’ve since begun reflecting on my action. Thank you very much for reading it.”
Big news! Buy the tank when it comes out, it has updated art!
Slug Chicks was kind enough to translate the afterword, if you are curious about it.
