Series Summary from MangaUpdates:
The world has become a desolate, lawless land where bandits roam free, innocent people suffer, and demons lurk around every corner. Souna Yuuki is traveling with his family when they are attacked by bandits. His entire family is murdered, and he is left with a snake mark on his hand. As he is about to die, a women comes up to him and gives him an option: continue to live in this harsh environment or die peacefully now. Yuuki chooses life and Garami, the woman, gives him a second chance at life in exchange for his servitude. Garami is a weapons merchant and a gun for hire that travels from town to town for clients. Yuuki sees how brutal and unforgiving this world can truly be.
Kenn's Comment: Like last week's manga feature, this one fell off my radar many moons ago, and I haven't really had to chance to take a look at it's more recent happenings.

Regardless, it's got quite an interesting story. Going through the barren lands, selling weaponry to those who have the money to afford it, combined with Garami's mysterious nature as well as Souna's maturation in the harsh, post-apocalyptic world. More people join the party, but that's more or less the point I've read up to before putting it away.

The art is great. It's quite detailed and reminds me of the art of Vinland Saga crossed with something like Freezing. It has a bit of that distinct Korean artist look to it (or maybe it's just me). It does have quite a bit of blood and violence, so take that into consideration before starting this one.

Anywho, enjoy this one!
