Nobunaga was just taken out of power and there are signs of civil unrest even in the far reaches of Kyuushuu. A small precinct of Kyuushuu is ruled by the Harima family and headed by the 15 year old Harunobu who, despite everyone’s hopes, has no interest in war nor being a lord. Instead, he spends his time surveying the land to make maps or record plant and animal life. Harunobu’s dream is to create an encyclopedia that contains all the information in the world. So when the opportunity to travel the world and eventually end in Rome appears, Harunobu leaves the land in capable hands and sets sail on his journey that he has dreamed of his entire life.
...So it FINALLY gets scanlated? The magazine itself has finally reached chapter 28 and this series FINALLY gets scanlated. I heard JAC was going to pick it up a long while ago, but then it kinda died out. Was worried it'll never get scanlated (like most Rival mangas) though. ._."
i liked the premise. also for some reason this manga reminded me of shaman king why is that i wonder? there is not many inovation from the shounen demo. but i liked it. thx koen for the intro.
Yeah, Caeron I know what you mean. It somewhat reminded me of Shaman King mainly because of our protagonists. What I like about the setting is the adventure aspect. This can become really good because we have a very curious, intelligent young guy discovering the world with his bodyguard/samurai. Harunobu reminds me a bit of mixture between Luffy and Yoh. The second chapter was interesting too and I really hope that S2scans will release their work faster
@Ju-da-su: spoiler tag but what can we expect (rough, big summary)?
i might just buy this 1 thou. it seems interesting. will w8 till the end of volume 1 to see if it continues the same way. scans usually takes alot of time and i get bored on commute. i am actually expecting hilarous sits. since author rewrote history. i wonder how many languages MC knows?
