Thanks for chapter 213 scan! So a Makie and Anotsu centered chapter, huh?
Thanks for the scans!
The story seems to find an end soon. Shira is dead. Maki is about to die. Habaki can't fight anymore. Rokki-Dan is gone. Itto-Ryu too. Giichi and Hyakurin suffered, but found something they already had lost. And Hanabusa is lame, can't imagine him to play a crucial role.
The only prediction that feels reasonable to me:
- Magatsu or Habaki will kill Hanabusa.
How could this whole thing end? Is there any option for an "happy end"? Any charakter who could be "satisfied"with the current events? Habaki could - but maybe he's losing his daughter. I want to get more information about Sori. And the two Itto-Ryu left near the palace. Will we see Doa and Isaku again? Maybe travelling over the ocean? - Departing seems generally not to be the best, but an acceptable solution: Is there anything to return to for Anotsu? For Maki? For Habaki? For Doa and Isaku? For Manji and Rin? And what about Renzo? Will Manji find his final rest - if he still wants to?
Just some thoughts...
Hm, what happend to Rin?
Poor Makie she needs a Manji's blood transfusion immediately...
By the way, Hanabusa of course is unpleasant person and not a good fighter, but he can't be blamed for his actions. He just wanted Itto-ryu to go away without bloodshed. And even tried to stop Habaki as promised. Finally, he could just shoot them both when they first met.

I am currently rereading from chapter 1. since I kinda forgot the whole story as the new volume was released.
But still, the appearance of Anotsu Kagehisa and the tag team with Manji was breathtaking! - I was talking about v. 29.
So.. I'm sure it's been asked a lot of times already but can someone clarify again the chapter equivalents? If I remember correctly there is a difference in magazine releases and the tanks.
in my files I have v. 29 up to ch.193. And that's the latest I've read so far.

Such a great volume. Well worth the wait
Just finished reading vol29, MYFUCKINGOD, amaaaaaaaaaaazing fights all-through-out to the end...
baro died? i certainly dont recall that...
2 ninja girls? sure
i dont think doa will come back, they pretty much wrap'd their story pretty good at the start of winter war arc.
You can argue whether Baro is dead or not.
But even if he's alive, I couldn't imagine him having a chance to change the story. He was a character on the second row without his own plot.
yes baro died.
but I wonder if Ozuhan is still alive. o.o
I assume the numbering difference between volumes 28 and 29 - the former ends with chapter 191 and the latter begins with chapter 204 - is due to the volume/magazine numbering difference and there's no actual material skipped? It's a bit confusing seeing how 28 ends with the fight just beginning and 29 starting with Anotsu fighting Habaki under temple gates and Manji already armless.
Can anyone confirm this?
yeah i have the same files i also wondered if I skipped any chapters...
i wont be surprised if that jumpcut result to be canon.
