Through his official Twitter account, Gotoubun no Hanayome manga author Negi Haruba shared an update recommending the manga written by Kanehito Yamada and illustrated by Tsukasa Abe, Sousou no Frieren. The post said, "Wow, 'Sousou no Frieren' is pretty good."
Yamada and Abe began publishing the manga in Shogakukan publisher's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in April 2020. The story centers on Frieren, a member of the hero's group who defeated the demon king. Being both magician and elf, that's the aspect that separated him from the other members. Having a longer life expectancy than others, you don't know what to feel about it.
For his part, Haruba published the original manga on the pages of Kodansha publishing house's Weekly Shonen Magazine between August 2017 and February 2020, with a total of 14 compiled volumes. The manga began to be reprinted in color no longer in serialized form but in volume format, with the first published on April 17.
The play inspired an anime adaptation released in January 2019 and a second season that is now scheduled to premiere in January 2021. Also, rumors suggest that the second season will feature an original story, but they have not been confirmed.
