Star Style Fantasy Romsen Saga

Written by Masaru Gotsubo, the same guy who worked on Samurai Champloo
Published by Square Enix

Quote :
In the Kingdom of Bandiera, the royal prophet has announced the incoming resurrection of the Demon King, 500 years after the first King sealed it. Four heroes were thus chosen and sent to the location of the Demon's prison.

…This is not that story. The chapters rather focus on colorful characters who live their bumpy lives and are often not quite what they seem to be at first.

This is the story of a world of swords and magic, of its heroes, its Demon King… and of the common folk around them.

So I stumbled upon this fairly new manga by accident trying to find news for Romancing SaGa 2's English release and I absolutely love it so far! At first I thought it was going to be a cookie-cutter fantasy story and/or a parody of Romancing SaGa... It is nothing of that sort! I love how colorful and unpredictable the characters' stories are so far. Unfortunately, I can't say anything without spoiling the best jokes or the plot, but I do think the characters have a lot more personality in a single page than some of the characters from other manga I've read. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard while reading a comic. XD

Despite its name and typesetting, the manga has nothing to do with the SaGa series other than the covers being redrawn versions of SaGa game box art.

Anybody who loves JRPGs or fantasy comedy stories would enjoy this, I think. If you can read Japanese Kinokuniya US has volumes 1-6 for sale. Hrghhhhh! I'm so excited, I'm going to buy these with my birthday money. XD Otherwise Let It Go Scans has an ongoing translation project for it. You can read Chapters 1-4 in English HERE. Chapter 5 should be up soon!

Is it a 4-koma style or just normal manga format?

Romsen Saga is done in the normal chapter-by-chapter manga format. In terms of how the story is told, it seems like it is going to flow as a frame story through multiple characters' perspectives, but I won't know for sure until I obtain the hard copies since I've only seen the first four chapters.
