The final chapters of the Yoshihiro Kawabata manga adaptation of the Magic Knight of the Old Ways light novel series (aka Furuki Okite no Mahou Kishi in Japanese) by Taro Hitsuji have just been published.
They will appear in the upcoming October edition of Kadokawa’s Comic Alive magazine.
With the publishing of those chapters, it has also been announced the Magic Knight of the Old Ways manga has come to an end, with Volume 3, the fantasy manga’s final volume, due out in Japan on September 23rd.
Meanwhile, the original Magic Knight of the Old Ways light novel series is being published in English in digital format by J-Novel Club.
They describe the manga’s plot like this:
A long, long time ago, in the era of legends, there was a knight known as Sir Sid the Barbarian who pledged his sword to the Holy King Arthur. Unparalleled in strength, he was the greatest magical knight of his time, but also a disgrace to the name of chivalry.
His evil deeds were countless, and eventually he met his end at the hands of his own king…or so the story goes.
Now a thousand years have passed, and Sid is summoned from his eternal slumber by Alvin, a descendent of Arthur and a prince who knows the truth about Sir Sid the Lightning Knight.
Honoring his ancient pact, Sid rises from the grave to help Alvin save the kingdom from impending peril and become the new instructor to Alvin’s class of fellow aspiring knights. As danger lurks in the shadows, Sid must train this class of underdogs to rely on more than just their magical fairy swords and teach them the old ways of the magic knights.
There has been no word yet from any publishing company as to whether an English-language version of the Magic Knight of the Old Ways manga adapation will be coming out.
But fingers crossed one eventually will be.
Until then, you can grab the five volumes of the Magic Knight of the Old Ways light novel series via J-Novel Club.
