    Gah... it's Turkiye, not Turkey. Calling the country Turkey makes it just a little too hard to separate from Earth

    now I can't follow anymore, so the setting is no earth? It's turkiye a fictional country in a fictional world? But the author uses true historical elements (like some titles, etc)

    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

    I think the setting is Earth, and I believe turkiye was the ottoman empire ages ago (but i'm not 100% sure).

    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.

    Oh that's just spiritism. But yeah, the mangaka did create that apparently.

    I think so too. They are an empire themselves and to protect their people, their identity, etc they decide to against the Baltein Empire. The only thing that worries me, is the fact that they are overestimating themselves because of mamhut's presence (is that his name? or title)

    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.

    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.

    Re: Shoukoku no Altair by Katou Kotono

    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:
    http://forums.mangafox.com/showthread.php?t=219858

    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. =)

    Re: Shoukoku no Altair by Katou Kotono

    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
