Synopsis of Sousou no Frieren
The Demon King has been defeated, and the victorious group of heroes have returned to their respective homes after disbanding. All four - the wizard Frieren, the hero Himmel, the priest Heiter, and the warrior Eisen - look back on their decade-long journey when it comes time to say goodbye. But the passage of time is different for elves, so Frieren witnesses his beloved companions slowly dying.Before his death, Heiter manages to impose on Frieren a young human apprentice named Fern. Driven by the elf's passion for collecting a host of magical spells, the pair embark on a seemingly aimless journey, revisiting the places that heroes of yore had visited. Throughout his travels, Frieren slowly comes to grief with him for missed opportunities to form deeper bonds with his now deceased comrades.
