Gah... it's Turkiye, not Turkey. Calling the country Turkey makes it just a little too hard to separate from Earth
What is the release schedule for this manga? Is it weekly, monthly or what?
Anyone reading this manga? 12 chapters are scanlated and the group doing it, maintains a monthly release. I like the setting, the characters, the political story etc behind this story.
I hope more people will read this because this manga has definitely interesting discussion material. So read it please and tell me what you think about the magistros' decision to go in a war against Baltein Empire
From their viewpoint it was the best decision, since otherwise they'd have to submit to the Empire and they believe they can beat it with their superior navy. Of course, I doubt it'll be that easy.Quote:
Türkiye means Turkey in turkish. But manga is about a fictional ottoman empire with spirits and etc...
Yes, that fact that they're doing this because they believed in mahmut's victory is worrying. Overconfident people rarely win. Probably the Baltein Empire will have use a trick to gain the upper hand and, hopefully, when all seems lost Mahmut will think of something to turn things round again.Quote:
Mahmut is his name, pasha was his title.
Chapter 13 came out. The Baltein empire is going to make a new move. Mahmut and the spy wil have to work fast to anticipate the upcoming attack or Phoenicia will be lost. This manga has an intriguing story.
Ah, for the people who asked about this, I want to help (even if it is pretty late ^^')
Türkiye is the name of Turkey in Turkish. I actually wrote some information based on things i saw before i read this manga here:
Btw, I must say that some information about us made me laugh a lot... Some exaggerations and fictional add ons about our eids and stuff... And I must say mostly scenes are more like Arabic not Ottoman ^^' And there are lots of fictional ideas in the story but that is quiet natural =) Many characters are real but the story is fiction =)
And I MUST say it was NOT a stratocracy, military force was not being used in Ottoman, it is called caliphate. =)
Phoenicia has fallen. I liked the strategy in which the boat which managed to get into the bay was used as a distraction to attack Phoenicia from another unexpected side. Mamhut and Kyros got away and now they came across the venedik fleet. I wonder what Baltein empire's next move will be
