In the era of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the fall of the Han Dynasty in Ancient China, a strange boy Qwan and his winged companion Teikou are on a quest. In order to find his purpose and the truth of his existence, Qwan is told that he needs to find the holy text, the Essential Arts of Peace. During his journey, he sucks in the body of demons, apparently as his meals. Will this super-strong demon eater locate the texts and discover his destiny? ~MU
I'd figure I'd start a Qwan thread since I haven't seen one. It's one of the best manga I've ever read. I think my favorite character would have to be Shaga, she's just so mysterious.

Unfortunately, it got discontinued in the States after volume 4. But all 7 volumes can be bought in French from fnac.com for anyone who speaks French.

Moved to seinen forum and edited for info

Wow that cover is super sweet :wtf
I guess I'll put it pretty high up my to-read list, simply because of that cover :D

I enjoyed this story hugely, but as mentioned before, it only goes up to chapter 4 in English - and at such a vital point in the story too! Translations of ch5 and up would be greatly appreciated.
Though I do wonder, is this really a seinen?

It was serialized in Comic Flapper, which is a magazine aimed at Seinen demographics.
