    I thought it was just with Assassination Classroom, but I guess the author likes smol feminine or ambiguous male leads.

    I'm gonna need a few more chapters to be able to remember names correctly

    I wonder if the girl with the halberd is Tomoe Gozen.

    No, she isn't. (16 characters)

    Good first chapter. Intrigued to see how it develops.

    One impression I immediately got is that even if it succeeds, it doesn't seem to be made to be a long manga. Future developments might change my mind.

    Here's the MangaPlus version:

    Definitely more shades of Neuro than Assassination Classroom, but it's historical fiction so it's all good. Might wanna go brush up on The Clear Mirror (Masukagami), a Genji-like tale written about the court of Emperor Go-Toba.

    Good start overall. Nothing surprising so far, Mr NiceGuy was an obvious candidate for rebellion, but there can be value in how the protagonists overcomes future trials. We'll see...

    something about the panelling and thick lines and astro boy esque format shouts out to me.
    I hope this will be fun

    Honestly, I'm not feeling this as much as Assassination Classroom, but I'm willing to give it a few more chapters to see if it pick up.

    I didn't expect to see supernatural elements in this but I'm glad we're going there, should make things more interesting.

    Reminds me of those Boars from Princess Mononoke. (Local Japaneses from the 11th century can't tell apart a boar from an ox apparently.)

    Also AC never had the author to show brutally murdered animals on panels as far as I remember. (Thank god, it wasn't a dog.)

    I mean, the first chapter did have a child being decapitated.

    I wasn't aware that male ticks get that big, but the dorsal shield size seems accurate.

    *shudders* I hate ticks.

    Obsidian shows up in LOTS of fantasy stories as a mineral that can be used to kill supernatural beings. I guess it really is special. And yes, it can get sharp as shit.

    I'm not really enjoying this story yet. I'm still waiting for it to get interesting. Each chapter feels super short to me. I'm not sure why since the cast is chatty.
