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
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.
Finally someone decided to pick up the project!
Chapter 37 is a bucket of f*cks!!
Chapter 38: We got a new girl and a team pet. However, we got some clues about Jinka. So he's now the Thousand Tailed Demon Fox Beast! Eat your heat out Madara!
Tama is back! And looks like a lot happened during the time skip!
Another subscription to a dead thread, but this manga is to good for me not to.
What is this new crazy character ? I love him already !
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.
