Did this ever get more that 4 or 6 chapters?
No, it was just a short story
No, it was intended to be that short from the start.
I know where you got that file, /v/ermin.
Real shame that Yellow Tanabe didn't turn this into a full series. There's not enough high fantasy manga as it is. I was preparing myself for twists, revelations, traveling, church warriors etc. and then she ends it after 6-7 chapters.
