About The Strange Adventure of a Broke Mercenary Manga Volume 1

The Strange Adventure of a Broke Mercenary Manga Volume 1 features story by Mine and art by Araea Ikemiya with character design by Peroshi.

Loren spent years fighting for the highest bidder, drifting from one battlefield to the next as part of a mercenary band. All that changes when a battle goes horribly wrong, and Loren barely escapes alive. Alone and without so much as a coin to his name, Loren resolves to start a new life as an adventurer. The adventuring trade is a world unto itself, and Loren’s cynical common sense clashes with the foolhardy courage of his new comrades. Meeting the enigmatic and beautiful priestess Lapis just might be the key to his survival–and the beginning of a strange new chapter in his life.

A fun start with an interesting twist

by -

As the description states, the manga follows Loren, a desperately broke mercenary, as he becomes an adventurer and goes off on his first quest.

The humor is quite fun as Loren's serious and trained nature clashes with the free spirited adventurers he allies with. His only solace is the priestess in the party, Lapis, whom he is able to connect with due to her intelligent nature. These two have wonderful interactions, and I look forward to seeing them in the second volume.

The art is good and fights are easy to follow. And while inspiration for the series might be drawn from others, I do not consider it any detriment as the story is unique; I was not expecting the twist about Lapis.

Overall, if the series even slightly interests you, I recommend picking it up. I'm happy I did.

Fun while also being surprisingly 'realistic'.

by -

I like it. I went in kind of expecting the same old adventure manga, but while it does have some of the same adventure tropes, it does it in a different way. The best way I could describe it is it's an adventure manga that's both fun but also more 'realistic' than a lot of others, where the characters feel more grounded and competent, like you'd expect veteran adventurers to be.
