    Started this yesterday after some recommendations and caught up. The main characters are interesting and it's very informative, with solid action and an interesting plot. I find the art a bit simple at times but overall it's a great manga.

    Chapter 24 is out.

    Sugimoto is a veteran soldier and yet he was afraid by a deer, Asirpa shows that she is the most mature of the duo again.

    Retar's probably safe now that they are all together.
    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 29, 2016 ---
    Retar had a mate, I was expecting this since the beginning, didn't expect even Asirpa to be unaware of this though. Tetsuzou got the death he wanted. Like this they have two corpses.
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 1, 2016 ---
    75 tons of gold... I wonder what will Sugimoto do now, with more investigations it's possible to find gold without hunting the prisoners, but Noppera-bou must have taken even more precautions to hide this.

    Asirpa trying to tease Sugimoto to get some miso was the best part of this chapter :XD .
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 4, 2018 ---
    I caught up! With all these short arcs, while I was reading I thought they would have found more tattoos than this. Of all things I was not expecting a Tsukishima chapter, with he and Ogata that makes two members of the 7th Division who killed their fathers.

    I hope the anime will make the series more popular here. It's an excellent manga.
    --- Double Post Merged, Mar 14, 2018 ---
    Tsurumi the master manipulator... I like these war flashbacks where we see Sugimoto along with the others. I hope it doesn't mean that Tsukishima will die soon.

    I caught up with the latest chapter few days back and it's a great ride.

    Eager to see how Sugimoto will meet Asirpa again.

    Tanigaki making the dancers proud :D.

    Sugimoto dying because of Koito's pettiness would make him more famous I guess :lmao. Koito must have really been greatly influenced by his idol to act like that.

    So the leader of the circus was also a spy.

    Another prison as goal... Hijikata's group is probably headed there as well.

    Very entertaining sniper battle! And Kiroranke can shine with his sapper skills. I am loving that focus on him, he is really showing that he was a member of the Seventh in this arc.

    After all those "brotherly" memories... a new chapter's out!

    When it comes to Shiraishii, Sugimoto's the best motivational resource XD

    I have already read about Chinese "oracle bones" and it was nice to see that Karafuto Ainu also used a similar method.

    Yeah, Shiraishi wasn't going to abandon Asirpa after his promise with Sugimoto. That death flag though... I doubt he'll die, but still. Ogata will probably do something.

    Recently started reading this series; caught up the day before. Really been an enjoyable read.

    One of the things I liked whilst reading is that the covers and many scenes are parodies from other media; most notably for me is the prison escape scene panel with Shiraishi, which is straight from Shawshank Redemption:



    There are more HERE. Do you guys know of any others?

    New chapter.

    That cliffhanger! What a way Of ending this chapter!
    Noda explains the Karafuto aynu punishment custom and then, he show us Hijitaka buried alive.
    How did they manage to capture him? Where's Ushiyama?
    And, since Asirpa didn't learn to write and read, there'd be something tricky in the tattoos.

    That Ainu punishment is worse than death :o. It looks like Sugimoto is starting to lose patience. When he will meet Ogata things will get ugly.

    What's with that cliffhanger? The criminal they got is supposed to have killed Hijikata? :hmm

    Yeah that punishment is tough, lol.

    It looks like it yeah;I wonder what went that down. If that's the case then depending on when that gets resolved, Sugimoto's group would end up sandwiched between Hijikata and Ogota's group.
