Purifying Fire manga has begun!

The Dengeki adaptation of Laura Resnick’s novel The Purifying Fire has begun its serialization in Dengeki Maoh, under the title 燃え尽きぬ炎 (Moetsukinu Honou, I think).

Samukun, who is studying in Japan at this time, has acquired a copy of the latest Dengeki Maoh, and it comes with a foil Cunning Sparkmage, which is not only a card that has proven its worth in Luis Scott Vargas’s deck in the recent Pro Tour San Diego, but is extremely appropriate for a magazine named 電撃魔王 (Dengeki Maoh, Electric Shock Overlord (literally, devil king)).


By Yoshino Himori

Once there was a flame-wielding red mage, a planeswalker who could travel across the multiverse. Her name was Chandra Nalaar.


“Shall I show you the fire in my heart?”

Check out the online preview today!

If this does well and we get a J.C.Staff Magic the Gathering anime my existence in this world will be validated.

    I’ve bought mine yesterday as well. the comic looks promising, and I’m gonna keep buying the magazine for it, which I haven’t done for a couple of decades(buying a whole comic magazine just to read one comic from it).

    it’s not just a fantasy comic with Magic characters in it. Chandra uses Incinerate on Ghost wardens, which are spells and creatures from the game, so I expect more elements that appear in the game will be mentioned in the comic as well.

    oh, and the author’s name is Yoshino Himori. I know, reading chinese characters in japanese are always confusing.

  2. Samukun says:

    Yeah, that looks like the Magic manga all right. Good to see that you found a preview site.

    @Kojiro Thanks. Fixed the name. I was using the translation from the Baka-Updates; I didn’t actually know what the real reading was.

    It looks decent, though something about Chandra’s design rubs me the wrong way. I think it’s the massive forehead.

    Was it the March or April issue that comes with Cunning Sparkmage? How do I get a subscription?

    It’s out, by the way: http://twitpic.com/168rhj

    I wonder how long until we see scanslations of this. (Time for me to go check my local hobby shop if they carry imports…)
