Rokka no Yuusha (Heroes of the Six Flowers) is a fantasy light novel written by Ishio Yamagata featuring illustrations from Miyagi. The novel began in August 2011 being published under Shueisha’s Dash X Bunko imprint. To date a total of 5 volumes have been published, with the latest volume out on November 21st. A manga adaptation of the series was produced by Yamagata and Kei Toru, who worked on the Akame ga Kill! Zero manga. The series is currently serialized in Shueisha’s Super Dash & Go! magazine and a total of 3 compiled volumes have been released.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
When the “Majin” awakes, the goddess of fate will choose six warriors and bestow them with the power to save the world.
Somewhere on their bodies, a crest in the shape of a flower will appear and as a result the warriors are “The Heroes of the Six Flowers.”
As the day of the Majin’s revival nears, Adlet, a boy who calls himself the strongest man in the world, is chosen as one of the “Six Flowers.”
But when the heroes arrived at their designated location, they found that there were seven heroes present.
Which meant that one of them was an imposter and an enemy.
Confused by the impossible situation, suspicion and paranoia spread among the chosen.
And within a thick forest, the heroes’ fierce battle begins!
No much is currently known about the Rokka no Yuusha anime adaptation, more information about the series will soon follow – including whether the series will be based on the light novel or the manga version.
