    Dog shooting? No no no no no, fuck no.

    The sad thing is though this kind of thing DID exist back in medieval Japan. Once I was reading a few short stories from back then and one was about a monk called the Sagami Novice holding dog fighting. For being a monk he was rather hedonistic.

    All I can say is: BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF THIS DICK.

    Well, at least it didn't focus on shooting dogs:

    The arrows transforming into a baseball and a bullet train to represents the speed of the shot despite said objects not existing in Japan at the time was a nice touch.

    Reminds me how Matsui used allegories in AC like transforming a high school test into a deathmatch arena.

    Nothing like the wonderful schadenfreude that is seeing assholes handed their asses to them.

    I'll give it a little longer. Although so far it's definitely not Assassination Classroom.

    It might also be one of those series where it's a lot better if you give it several chapters and read them in one go, rather than week by week.

    By contrast, I've gotten used to the characters and pacing after being lost in the first chapters. I also accepted that it has a Japanese trivia gag that will be lost to me almost every chapter, but it's no big deal.
    Wash your hands.

    It could use another character with more detail to him.

    Ok I really liked the turn at the ending. Nothing spectacular or groundbreaking but it connected with me somehow.^^

    I kinda wished the other kids got some development first before adding a new one.

    I'm getting real tired of Sir Bug-Eyes. But Genba is a much needed addition. I'm actually laughing and getting interested:

    I think there will be a third guy with a really big nose.

    Interesting that he's a servant/soldier and not a lord himself.

    Genba truly is a welcome addition to the party and the series as a whole:

    Also our first glimpse of the Emperor behind all this.

    The emperor has shone through the same courtain a few times, when he gave a character of his name to whatshisname the treacherous lord.

    So weird that a jump manga is managing to get away with hinting at the emperor. One Piece had do do the whole thing up to shoguns, just as gintama and the other meiji period series that shall not be named, who did mention the political change of the period, but didn't say anything about the person or character.

    Way less presence than on this one, but I think that he showed up another time as well.

    Oh yeah, forgot about that. Go-Daigo was a real emperor (as this is all based on history), but I don't remember anything about him other than this war.
