The manga has been serialized in KADOKAWA's Monthly Shonen Ace since 2015, and its latest 12th
tankobon volume is set to be released in Japan on March 26, 2019.
Set in the Year 305 of the Alucian calendar, Plunderer presents a world still recovering from the previous
Great War in which the lives of human beings are dominated by the concept of "Count". When Hina's
mother's Count runs out, she charges her daughter with finding the "Legendary Shooting-Down King",
a hero from the previous war. Together with Rihito, a masked swordsman who loves women perhaps a
little too much, Hina sets out on a quest to complete her mother's last wish.
