Frieren: Beyond Journey's End – A Fantasy Series Unlike Any Other
In case you’re unfamiliar, Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End is an award-winning fantasy manga series written by Kanehito Yamada and illustrated by Tsukasa Abe. It began serialization in Weekly Shonen Sunday on April 28, 2020.
Since then, the manga has gotten nearly 100 chapters and has received praise from fans and critics alike.
The manga won the Grand Prize in the 14th Manga Taisho as well as the New Creator Prize at the 25th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize for its creators.
Although it is a fantasy manga series, its premise is far from a typical fantasy manga story as it features a group of adventurers after they have already defeated the Demon King.
Specifically, the story follows Frieren, an elven mage who is a member of a party of adventurers that defeated the Demon King and brought peace to the land.
After their victory, Frieren travels the world in pursuit of magical knowledge, though the party members promise to meet again in the capital after 50 years.
Once 50 years have passed, Frieren returns to the capital but finds her companions have all grown old.
Unlike them, Frieren is an elf with a long lifespan, which means she will outlive all of them.
Soon, one of the members dies of old age. Following this, Frieren sets out to fulfill the last request of her friend.
