Their travels lie with many twists and turns, as well as wacky characters they'll meet along the way.

I can't believe no one has ever replied to this thread yet! Sengoku Youko is one my favorite "not-famous" series of all time.

I like the characters, and I like the quick paced plot that doesn't drag out a lot and it's not overdone by cliches (Thank God it's not in Shonen JUMP). The art is amazing and I really enjoy the crazy faces the characters make now and then.

Speaking of plot, I liked how it starts comically with Jinka and Tama's "quest". Some would take the wrong idea thinking it's your typical shonen series about saving others and friendship, but it thickens and gets a bit dark.

What I find it bad about the series is the slow publishing rate. I don't know if it's really slow or it's from the scanlators, but it's really annoying how it takes a long time till we get the next chapter.

Never the less, it's a wonderful series and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys this setting.

A really great manga. I picked it up right after Hoshi no Samidare. Mizukami Satoshi has a great storytelling^^
Too bad there were no new chapters of Sengoku Youko for months

Maybe because Mizukami is busy with other projects. Sadamoto, the maker of the Evangelion manga delays his manga due to his work as a character designer for Gainax, and there was a time when Azuma the maker of Yotsuba&! delayed it for a while to make extra chapter of Azumanga Daioh for its tenth year anniversary.

That would explain it, but on what is he working now? He does not have another ongoing manga than Sengoku Youko, does he?

I think the last delay before the end of Part 1 was to finish up " Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer". I could be wrong, but that's what I think. Other than that, I don't know of any other on-going projects he have now.

Just a quick update: The reason for the lack of scanlations in the last few months is because the scanlator of the series had an accident this summer and broke his right arm. No word on when he'll resume, but not before the end of this month.

Let's all hope he recovers as soon as possible.

Signature worth to be changed after this chapter. I won't be killed if they are only 10000 :-)) This shogun was an hilarious character. I will miss him.

Time to go back to page 1 :-). This chapter 50 is wonderfully written. The parallel in the dialogues combine with the page design really give another level to the reading pleasure. It doesn't hurt either that there is some funny reflections on the shounen cliché about the desire to be the strongest. I really love this serie. With the Spirit Circle chapter of yesterday, I'm really happy.

Oh yes that new chapter was nice. 20 years of training planned, 8 years seems to have done the trick.

That ending was pretty awesome, I'll be impressed if there's any real dialogue with Jinka. But this author always surprises me in all his works.

Can't wait till we see Jinka again. It's been a very long time since we last saw him.

Yes it's funny how Mizumaki makes his time skip very naturally.
About Jinka I wonder if he will have some humanity left in him. I hope he still looks like a little like he used to.

Wow, thanks for the recommendation k-dom. Absolutely fantastic story. I found Yoshiteru particularly great and lovable. I enjoyed so much the whole arc about him and how Senya grew up and accomplished to become human thanks to his wisdom. To me, that arc has been really well told; a truly gem. The characters are great and very creative, the art is nice to see. The world created by the author is full of imagination and very interesting.

It will be nice to see again Jinka, and the battle between Senya and him will be a pay per view one.

My only worry is how long will it take to the author to tell all the story. He began in 2008, and I see is a monthly series. I hope the group come back to the regular releases they have some months ago.

Yes ! I was sure you would like it, Mizukami is a great writer so I don't worry to much about the length and I don't think it will become a 50 volumes manga anyway. His previous work Biscuit Hammer is highly praised and is only 10 volumes long (that could be an interesting proposition for a common reading).
If you are interested, currently he is also doing Spirit Circle. It's also monthly and only at the beginning but the scanlations are regular and up to date. Once again his storytelling is very original and doesn't disappoint

Nice nice chapter! I guess Jinka created the barrier as a defence against the Black Void spirits. So he's not counting at all with Tama, Senya and co.

The guys of Vexed scans wrote in their blog (http://vexedscans.blogspot.com/):


How long's it been since the last one of these? 72 days? Well, having to go 72 days without any Sengoku Youko sucks ass, so here's chapter 55 for now, with 56 on the way (hopefully Monday if the redraws are done in time). However, after that the only raws I have are iffy Chinese ones (except for chapters 61 & 62) that I'd rather not use, so for those chapters it'll depend on when I can get good magazine or tank scans. Hence, if you know someone who gets Comic Blade or wants to rip up their copies of volumes 10 and 11, send them my way.

A pervy powerful master makes an honest offer to a sexy lady to become his disciple. Such gracefully twist!

Since he's the master of Jinka, I bet Tsukiko will be a key to the battle.

It's so shameful that it didn't happen. What a handy way to deal with things.
And I doubt Tsukiko wicked way will be fundamentally evil. But I'm still curious anyway. And this return of Kogetsukai mad me think I probably need to reread this manga sometime.
OK time to go buy my next volumes of Samidare now.

Tsukiko using her sexy legs to trick Kokugetsusai is just such a wonderful move!!! And it's quite impressive that the pervy master keep his word, and promises what he said. He's a pervy and honorable master. This is charming from all the ways you look at it.

I'm not sure to understand well the idea that humans are the best at being evil. Sure humans are moral beings, and in that case we are evil and good. But I guess, the context of the story will let us know what Kokugetsusai meant with that line.
