I just started reading this today. To be honest, it exceeded my expectations. I wish there was some way I could help with having more chapters be available for reading.
I especially love the development of both kingdoms Baltein and Turkiye. It very quickly shakes up who you consider "good" and "bad". The character designs are fluid and easily distinguishable. For example, I could instantly tell that Suleyman was not from Turkiye, but from the Baltein Empire (with his European features).
Stuff like that fascinates me, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Re: Shoukoku no Altair by Katou Kotono
Damn, what a long wait but two great chapters have been released in one month. The Doge of Venedik is a true politician. He didn't care about Phoenicia and he stated very clear reasons that each man somewhat can understand. The 17th chapter was a twist, it is kinda ambiguous to be faced by a leader like the doge of venedik. But it shows what ware and commerce can do to politics. Phoenicia became victim of Venedik's political ideology
The 18th chapter is another great read. It showed us the reasons why there is no Kulak in Venedik. Suleyman Bey has been in Venedik and he met Abliga. The historical setting of Venedik is very interesting because as a state doesn't have a Kulak since the Venedicians have their own network for Venedik. The biggest surprise however is that Abligia himself violated a rule with the consequence that he is exiled from Venedik. I wonder if Abligia is a Kulak? Maybe he never accepted being a Kulak but it might be he respected Suleyman. Well he will become a new ally of Mahmut
