FWIW, I believe there are... 7 chapters out for the manga so far, with Ch 7 having been released earlier this month. (I currently have chs 1-6 and should be getting the next vol of Beans Ace early next month.) Personally, I found the manga a bit easier to get into than the novel was, and so far, all the chapters deal with the first novel (~no Bouken). Unfortunately, Beans Ace seems to be slowing down on their release schedule this year and going quarterly (they were bi-monthly last year) with the next issue coming out Oct. 10. >.> (This may also affect Saiunkoku manga readers depending on what's going on with that title - sic if it stays with Beans Ace or if it'll eventually switch to Asuka.)
Otherwise, if anyone wants a single DL file, here's the full Ch 1 file. (I changed to a slightly lower quality file for the second half and re-saved the previous half's files at the lower setting in this zip. No changes have been made to the actual content.) Enjoy.
[Edited to add MU and SS links if Mediafire should give a weird PW request on the full ch file. >.> ]
