‘Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers Volume 6’ Light Novel Highlight

Volume six is the final entry in the Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers fantasy light novel series written by Ishio Yamagata, illustrated by Miyagi, and published by Shueisha. Released in 2015, it made its way to the shores of America in 2018 thanks to Yen Press.

Adlet has been an unknowing pawn of the demon lord’s general Tgurneu, brainwashed into being the seventh member of the Six Braves. As Mora and Goldof battle a fiend army at the Temple of Fate, Fremy, Rolonia, and Chamo, along with Nashetania and defector Dozzu come up with a scheme to defeat the evil fiend general. Hans desperately tries to shake Adlet out of his stupor, but Tgurneu continues to pull the strings while the other general Cargikk waits in the wings.

Going into this, I was excited. The anime definitely left me yearning for more, especially since it ended on such a cliffhanger. I was pulled into the story of these Braves fighting to stop the leader of the fiends from rising up and destroying their world. It was a fascinating tale and one I was bracing for the ending.

Just one problem, the ending never came. Yamagata conclude the series and wrote a prequel that has never been published in English, but we never saw the conclusion or the ending to their fight with the Fiends. Cargikk seemed like such a fascinating character and the leader even more so. Yamagata continues to make appearances at workshops and events in Japan, but he has yet to tell us if this saga will ever conclude. It is a shame because as a fantasy series, it was fun to read.
