■ Story

Wizard's Symphony

Wizard’s Sympony is set 20 years after the events of Wizard’s Harmony.

A traditional fantasy spun by new adventurers in a world of swords and magic.

A world where swords and magic have developed more than science—.

In this world, the increase in adventurers shows no signs of stopping, and trade dealing with adventurers has unexpectedly caused a bubble economy.

The protagonist, a young man named Alto, is a “Historic Ruins Tour Guide”—or “Conductor” for short—which is one of the occupations born from that bubble.

Set in the city of “Kazan,” where traces of the magical kingdom Glasoska thought to have been destroyed in a single night 1,000 years ago remain, Alto and company’s adventure is about to begin—.

■ Character Design

Character design for Wizard’s Symphony is being handled by Moo, who took the world by storm as the illustrator of Wizard’s Harmony.
