The manga has been licensed by Viz Media, and here’s what happens:

The adventure is over but life goes on for an elf mage just beginning to learn what living is all about. Elf mage Frieren and her courageous fellow adventurers have defeated the Demon King and brought peace to the land.

But Frieren will long outlive the rest of her former party.

How will she come to understand what life means to the people around her?

Decades after their victory, the funeral of one her friends confronts Frieren with her own near immortality. Frieren sets out to fulfill the last wishes of her comrades and finds herself beginning a new adventure…

The protagonist, an elf named Frieren, embarks on dangerous quests alongside trusty companions in order to vanquish evil in this fantastical tale.

As the conclusion of hostilities approaches, she must shoulder the legacy of her long-lived ancestors and watch as one by one her companions succumb to death.

While she laments the decline and eventual end of her longtime friendships, her travels have introduced her to new people who have become dear to her.

This manga was first published by Yamada and Abe in the April 2020 issue of Weekly Shonen Sunday by Shogakukan.

On June 17, the ninth volume was released.

Many prestigious accolades have been bestowed to the manga, including the New Creator Prize at the 25th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2021 and the 14th Manga Taisho Award in the same year.

In addition, at both the 45th annual Kodansha Manga Awards in 2021 and the 46th awards in May of this year, the manga was nominated for Best Shonen Manga.
