T/N: As I am not familiar with this story or its characters, some names, locations, and scenarios (references to past chapters) may be incorrect or faulty. I also didn't add who-said-what: so I apologize
great webcomic, would recommend to anyone who hasn't read it yet.
Why is this marked as complete? Last I checked they were far from.
what is stated in the MH Database.
EDIT: Just FYI - The database has now been updated to correctly say that the series is ongoing.

Thanks for the fix, Tsuki <3 and yeah its still an ongoing series.
current chapter 176.
Forbidden / Ban area
I think the previous lord must have placed a ban of entry to the mansion since Rai was missing. He probably didn't want anyone going around there.
I must say that was one huge mansion. Does it look similar to the emblem on the school uniform that Rai and the kids wear?
Too bad it was a night scene. Regi's reaction were pretty amusing to see. The lock or entry system to the mansion was also intriguing.
So now its pretty much given that its Rai's home. Wonder just how much of a "big shot" he really is. The central order guys were pretty funny. I felt sorry for them, when they were attacked.
So many questions remain, looks forward to next week.
Thank again to Kyouria for doing an excellent translation fast.
I also checked out the other series you mentioned here. Seems pretty cool, and the art work is beautiful too.
Chapter 176 was good, the comedy was fun, the storytelling is, as usual, very good but i REALLY wonder how Tao and co. will be able to join Rai, Frankenstein & Regis, but the one thing i am sure is that i'll be lmao when they do! ^^
Filler chapter really, let's hope the following chapters are good enough.
What do you think the cross signifies? Any guess as to who Rai might be from this chapters revelation that he's the owner of that mansion.
As for the humor i still have my fair share of laugh every chapter, i liked the central order guys in the latest one for instance.
At least it changes from the ramen joke...
I don't know about you but what I like in this webcomics is the frame architecture. With these long vertical bands that makes a great and original design. That's the first corean manga I read so maybe it's more standard than I thought
As for the current chapter, I don't know if we should expect big fights. There is this story of betrayal but I don't see how the 3 humans can expect to win against the nobles
Perhaps its too much to say that against clan leaders but maybe they can stand up to the ones lower than them. Franky has upgraded them a lot to be able to stand up to Rael at the very least.
I think Rai is going to offer the cross from his mansion to the current Lord as a tribute for the passing away of her father the previous Lord.
Another thing i realized is that Regis is actually strong and held in high regards compared to the other nobles. And if you remember D5 and Regis were somewhat equal in a one on one fight, and since M21 was also able to keep up with D5 for awhile as well. Then the 6 of them (rai/frank/regis/tao/takao/m21) are all pretty strong and should be able to hold their own in coming chapters.
Deciding factors will probably come down to soul weapons, and how much the experiments/training has progressed them. And if they have any Aces.

If Rai was the leader before then it would have been before the previous lord went to sleep. I may be thinking too much on it but Rai might be Royalty (looking at that huge mansion).
I read back on some of the chapters and one thing that Rai mentions after awakening is that he asks Franky if he's become a clan leader yet. I would think that to even consider being a clan leader, one must have a clan? So what's his family / clan background?
Thought that was interesting.
What I currently think about what the cross is quoted from the post above.
