The Genshin Impact online manga was first published in 2018, almost 2 years before the public release of the game itself. This official manga is set before the game’s main story. It starts in the Prologue Chapter with some events happend in old Mondstadt around the hero Vennessa who was the founder of Knights of Favonius.
In Chapter 1 the manga turns to depict some of the Fatui’s activities in Mondstadt and, not long before the beginning of the game. Other characters from Mondstadt such as Amber, Diluc, Kaeya, Jean and Lisa also appear in the story, protecting Mondstadt from Fatui’s evil plan. Two other notable characters had appearance in the manga are Collei and Cyno who are based in Sumeru, and both of them are available as playable characters starting from Version 3.1.
Oddly enough, Chapter 9: Ludi Harpastum is known to be a missing chapter from Genshin official website due to unknown reason (or a technical mistake perhaps). The manga also seems to be discontinued in its English version after Chapter 13. However the manga story actually moved on in the Chinese version and some fans actually translated them in English! These particular chapters are made available here in Genshin.Global and can be found below.
