Once upon a time, there was a tragic war, in which the power of the devils was involved. After the war, the devils' power was banned and the world was restored to peace. Cecily Campbell is a knight, who has been looking for a blacksmith to repair her old sword given by her father. One day, she saw a man fighting with a ruffian who used the tabooed devil's power. The man defeated him with one blow of his weirdly shaped sword. The man turned out to be a blacksmith called Luke. The fateful encounter was the beginning of the adventure.


Seiken no Blacksmith was published in English as The Sacred Blacksmith by Seven Seas Entertainment from May 21, 2013 to July 11, 2017.

The character development gets better.
In the anime we just see cecily as a weak girl who gets lucky in her fights basically.
In here we see ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (23/62 eps)
In the beginning it doesn't seem like a bad manga but as it progresses further, the heroine turns out to be a weak little girl with her head in the clouds. I don't know what it is with the manga writers (no idea what they're called), but every manga I've ever read where the main character is a girl, that girl is some naive little twit that thinks she can save everyone around her and has her spirit broken when she finds out that she really is a naive little twit.
The moment I dropped this manga is when she got to the line ...
