Alternate Title

禍つヴァールハイト -ZUERST-


Inumael and Leocadio are two young men living in the Warheit Empire, where a plan is underway to relocate the capital. Inumael is a timid carrier worker and Leocadio is a naive soldier new to the empire. One thinks about his beloved sister, while the other thinks about advancing his career as a soldier. However, the empire has been killing off creatures from the world and it is predicted that such action will lead to the return of the disastrous “light” that released countless monsters into the world the last time it appeared. Oblivious to the future that awaits them, Inumael and Leocadio meet by chance during a smuggling incident, changing the course of history for themselves and the empire.
