Ougyo Kawagishi’s Noroken no Hime no Overkill: Tokkuni Life wa Rei nanoni (Overkill of the Princess’ Cursed Sword: Even though Life Was Already at Zero) novel series is getting a manga adaptation, this was confirmed by Yawaraka Spirits’ official Twitter account on Thursday.

On the way to the capital to fulfill his dream, he is attacked by orcs, but just at that moment, a strange swordswoman appears and brutally kills the orcs in obvious exaggeration. His name is Shey and he wields a cursed weapon. Thea then becomes Shey’s exclusive blacksmith.
