On September 4, 2022, Kadokawa launched a new gag manga inspired by FromSoftware’s action RPG Elden Ring.

Titled Elden Ring: The Road to the Erdtree (Elden Ring: Ongonki e no Michi), the Elden Ring manga will be created by Nikiichi Tobita, who is known for their manga A Cursed Sword’s Daily Life (Jyaken Wa Sugu Bureru, The Whimsical Cursed Sword).

A Cursed Sword’s Daily Life is set in a fantasy world of swords and sorcery, but this isn’t a typical fantasy world since the dawning of the technological era has brought forth computers, smartphones, tablets, and even the Internet. Fantasia has become changed and everyone is living peaceful lives until one day a brother and sister find a very strange sword with eyes, teeth, and tentacles. The English version of this manga is being released by Comikey.

Elden Ring The Road to the Erdtree is now available on the free manga website ComicWalker, and will be available in the following languages: Japanese, English (Yen Press, LLC, on ComicWalker), Traditional Chinese (KADOKAWA TAIWAN CORPORATION), Thai (KADOKAWA AMARIN COMPANY LIMITED), Korean (Youngsang Publishing Media, Inc.), French (Mana Books), German (Altraverse GmbH), Italian (PANINI S.P.A.), Spanish (Spain’s NORMA Editorial S.A.), Spanish (Latin America’s Panini Mexico S.A.), Polish (STUDIO JG), and Portuguese (Panini Brasil Ltda.).

What is the plot of Elden Ring The Road to Erdtree?

The story centers on a young man named Aseo, who gets a streak of bad lucks and ends up cast out of his home village of Limgrave – naked, penniless, hopeless, and maidenless. Due to being a “Tarnished wretch” his only hope in this unforgiving new sword and sorcery world is a mysterious woman named Melina, who offers to help him. Melina advises Aseo that he should follow the Guidance of Grace to the Erdtree, which is located in the Lands Between.

Aseo sets out on a quest to find the Erdtree, but the road isn’t easy, and he encounters many strange individuals along the way that either help or hinder his progress: Patches the Untethered, Blaidd the Half-Wolf, Margrit the Fell Omen, Godtrick the Grafted, and Ranni the Witch.

Wearing nothing but a loincloth, Aseo boldly strikes out for the first stop on his quest: Stormveil Castle. Will Aseo make it to Stormveil Castle, or will his quest end before it even begins? Maybe he should have stopped somewhere to find a pair of pants first.

Nikiichi Tobia is a whiz at writing jokes

Elden Ring The Road to the Erdtree is a work featuring beautiful drawings and realistic characters, who perform a series of surrealistic gags. Readers might be tempted to use their own philosophical or cosmic imagination to understand the gags, but those familiar with Tobita’s jokes will have a better understanding of them. If you have friends in other countries you should compare your impressions of the gags.
