Illustrated by Kazuya Tsurumaki for various Newtype issues back in 2003, reprinted afterwards in Die Sterne artbook, which is pretty cool, since there’s a list of illustrations at the end, telling you who drew what and where it was first shown.
P.S: You can find scans on a stupid tracker.
this sword sat in it’s sheath in a flooded tomb for 2000 years and it’s still sharp and untarnished. scientists say it’s because of the chemical composition and the almost airtight sheath. me? magic. whosoever wields this sword will be blessed with Mandate of Heaven and establish harmony on Earth.
Can you tell me who drops it, my friends and I are pretty high leveled, I’m sure we could farm whoever to get that unique wep. Btw its stats seem pretty high as well for an ancient class sword.
