A TV series anime adaptation has been announced for 2016.
The mighty Katjvarna Empire is currently embroiled in a war with the neighboring Kiorka Republic.
Within an unspecified corner of this empire, a certain young man was reluctantly preparing to take the High Grade Military Officer Exam owing to mysterious circumstances. His name is Ikta.
As a man, Ikta abhors war, is slothful by nature, and worships the female form.
At the time, no one could have possibly predicted that a person like him would become a military figure worthy of being called a legendary general......
The young Ikta, armed with his superb talents as a soldier, struggles to survive in a world ravaged by war. This tale will recount his tumultuous life up until this point, as the curtains are drawn for a spectacular chronicle of fantastical warfare!
I translate for grammatical accuracy and edit myself for flow, clarity and nuance. Readers are welcome to fix any minor grammatical or spelling errors that they find, but please contact me concerning any major grammatical errors that involve the meaning of the text (which do occasionally occur) for future reference. I realize that what's grammatically accurate isn't always the translation that sounds the best, so I'm also open to stylistic suggestions.
Note to Readers
In this series, all of the characters are actors playing themselves in a theater production, a quite literal interpretation of the phrase "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players." The narration is given from the perspective of the audience, so I recommend trying to imagine everything in the context of a stage as you read. Enjoy!
