I have believed only in my sword.
Guts, a lonely swordsman with no friends, no family, and no hometown to return to, has been traveling around as a mercenary in a land ravaged by the Hundred Years War. Guts is able to handle a sword longer than him and easily defeat powerful enemies.
Griffith, the leader of the mercenary group “Band of the Hawk,” notices Guts. Commanding a power that’s unimaginable with his beautiful appearance and great ambitions, wins Guts in a duel and brings him into the Band of the Hawk to fulfill his own dream. As they go through numerous fierce battles together, the companions become bound by trust.
The bond between Griffith and Guts, in particular, has become something special.
