Description: In the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush in the wilderness of Hokkaido. When he stumbles across a map to a fortune in hidden Ainu gold, he sets off on a treacherous quest to find it. But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who knows about the gold will kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals and rogue Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skills and luck—and the help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa—to survive.

Yeah... Except the Canadian government claims otherwise
 
The hunt is purely commercial and is not a cull at all.
 


And recent scientific research proves that Seals have a negligible effect on fish stock.
 

Oh shoot, so there was more studies done. Interesting that they do cause problems for Atlantic Salmon though, I know they've focused so much on figuring out if it was Cod that they overlooked that. Thanks for the studies, I'll have to look through some more and update my views. 

He himself valued it at more than what he payed for it. Since it was a bargain that should be understandable.

Lol, he tried to hold it hostage for more money, only to fail due to Sugimoto threatening him.

 

[continue]....

In short: The one at fault is not the rancher but a) the drunken gambler who lost it in the first place and b ) the twats who let the guy steal it to begin with. To threaten him with violence because he’s not forthcoming enough to their demands is brutish.


In short: You were wrong 4 out of 4 times. The rancher should show at least a tiny bit of compassion, instead of taking advantage of a drunkard to get his greedy hands on a family heirloom.

And then you remember that he's directly responsible for poisoning the Hokkaido wolf to extinction for profit.
 

Not for profit. This has happened in any country in any place on this earth when humans begin trying to colonize wilderness. We encroach on natural habitats of the local wildlife and they fight back. If the wildlife see easy prey (like the horses) they will continue to attack no matter what. There are no defenses to it - if you barricade your ranch - if you had the money- they'll wait for when you leave it. They'll sneak in at night. Just look at how raccoons and coyotes kill livestock, or how farmers have to shoot deer that keep getting into their crops. We even have falconers and pigeon shooters that go out and shoot birds that try to eat the planted seeds on farms.

 

The rancher has only done the same. 

Yeah... but then you remember that the rancher started it when he tried to pretend that he got the heirloom for 100 yen.

I did some research on the bear poop plug because it's interesting, and apparently Asirpa got it a little wrong. Well, researchers now know exactly what the fecal plug is, so her answer is more in keeping with the knowledge of the time.

Honestly, Sugimoto is kind of an asshole for threatening that rancher ...

And then you remember that he doesn't care that the sealskin clothing he managed to get cheaply thanks to a drunk gambler is a treasured Ainu heirloom... and tells Sugimoto and co. to risk their lives with a crazy bear and then still pay 30 yen just to get it back.

Nah, fuck the rancher.

Honestly, Sugimoto is kind of an asshole for threatening that rancher ...

 

Other than that, hahaha, did Shiraishi seriously just sit on Asirpa? Oh man, that was hilarious! I love how understated this was.

They should add an osoma tag to this manga

The nasty little idiots will destroy entire ecosystems if you allow them to breed uncontrollably without frequent culling, seeing as the amount of adults you're allowed to hunt commercially is still under 300,000 a year when over 6 million of them exist and have been steadily increasing despite cullings.

Myth #4: The Canadian government is allowing sealers to kill thousands of seals to help with the recovery of cod stocks.
 
Reality: Several factors have contributed to the lack of recovery of Atlantic cod stocks, such as fishing effort, poor growth and physical condition of the fish, and environmental changes.

In addition, there are many uncertainties in the estimates of the amount of fish consumed by seals. The commercial quota is established on sound conservation principles, not an attempt to assist in the recovery of groundfish stocks.


And recent scientific research proves that Seals have a negligible effect on fish stock.
 

It's always poop, Sugimoto.

 

Anyway, it's about time bato.to added a poop tag.

Well duh. There's not much meat on a baby seal (and this is a cooking manga). In Canada, Inuits hunt seals also because the meat is an important source of fat. In contrast, Canadian hunters primarily care about the fur, which is why they target younger seals. This is even reflected in the species of seal that is hunted; Inuits mostly hunt Ringed Seals while Canadian commercial hunting targets Harp Seals

 

Traditional Inuit seal hunting accounts only for three percent of the total hunt.

 

On page 5 Asirpa mentions that they can eat the liver. This is not recommended today for everyone, as Seal liver is filled with mercury due to pollution.

Just to expand on that, Inuit will hunt whatever animal whatever time of year. Ring, Harp, whatever seal sticks it's head out of the water/breathing hole gets a hakapik to the skull. Hunters aren't allowed to hunt any seal that still has it's "whitecoat" or newborn coat. The nasty little idiots will destroy entire ecosystems if you allow them to breed uncontrollably without frequent culling, seeing as the amount of adults you're allowed to hunt commercially is still under 300,000 a year when over 6 million of them exist and have been steadily increasing despite cullings. 

Kirorankexhorses confirmed

 

Whuddaheck happened to Kiro anyway? He started out as a badass dagger-wielding grenadier but now he's almost as useless as Shiraishi.

 

And the princess finally finds her throne?

of all the bear trivia for Asirpa to forget... It was about the prey 

 

oh wait... keikaku doori... she must be planning to get rid of Shiraishi for that sin that he did just now

Kirorankexhorses confirmed

Eating the poison filter of an animal seems like a pretty dumb idea to begin with, honestly. Aside from pollution issues there’s also the danger of succumbing to hypervitaminosis for instance. Certain animals have so much vitamin A in there (some seals among them) that it can be very poisonous or even fatal to consume them. With polar bear liver for example the deadly dose for an adult is only 500g.

Well, at least it's not a baby seal.

This series switches between absurd and serious faster than i can count at times...

I'm guessing the "monster" is one of the escaped convicts... Wearing a dead horse like a f*cking cape sounds like something one of them would do.

Clubbing is moe again! 

 

"Welcome to the club!"

Eat the brain, Shiraishi.

 

I can understand why Sugimoto and Shiraishi would leave the slaughter to Asirpa, but Kiroranke is basically Ainu too. What the heck was he doing hiding behind that rock?

 

Because Asirpa with a club is scary as hell.

My god that Title page and the next page just killed my sides! I love Asirpa! I love this author!

Playing along to the gag!
