Nagareboshi Ten'nyo

There are wars and rumors of war, but this has always been so. Nevertheless, fear, violence and deprivation make people desperate. The people of the land yearn for the long-foretold waking of the Sleeping Goddess and the coming of the Messenger who will herald her awakening. The deserter Marx, however, cares nothing for old prophecies, goddesses, messengers, or anything else except saving his own skin. Fate has other things in mind for him, though. He will be a bigger part of the prophecy than he would have ever imagined, but whether it will prove to be for good or for ill remains to be seen.
