Trails of Cold Steel “The Daily Life of Crow Armbrust” 4-Panel Manga Series Announced; First Chapter Available & Translated

Nihon Falcom and Japanese news outlet Dengeki have announced that a new 4-panel Trails manga series featuring Trails of Cold Steel character Crow Armbrust has begun being published by artist Yuhki Kigi.

The first 4-panel manga has been released on Dengeki’s official website, with subsequent issues scheduled to launch every other Monday from the second issue onward.

Before moving on, it’s worth emphasizing that this first issue of the manga, and likely future releases, contain massive story spoilers for the first Trails of Cold Steel

This series will aim to briefly depict Crow’s behind-the-scenes actions that were not explicitly seen in-game. This first 4-panel release highlights Crow as the leader of the Imperial Liberation Front. However, apparent financial difficulties and the need to blend into Thors Military Academy as a student don’t have him feeling all too thrilled.
