No highschool setting? check

Gotta say, that alone is worth checking out. Oh, and teenage MC also falls under that category.

Eating brains can get you ailments much like mad cow disease.  There is actually a problem in the southern united states with people eating squirrel brains.

The manga's good but the quality of the scanlation is superb.

In every chapter this series gets better, i can feel the work of the author in reaserch every aspect of that time in japan, but in the same time this isnt just a historical manga the story is unique and has personality of its own, the fight scene was epic wasnt rigid but fluid, and at the same time not fantasized. And the cooking scene almost gave me a nosebleed. HINNA HINNA XD

 

Thanks EHscans for bring to us this amazing manga.

"Is it good?"

"Yes, ma'am.."

It reminds me a bit of imperial guards

No highschool setting? check

No bland, OP, self insert mc? check

MC with character and personality other than pervert or dense? check

No harem? check

Unique setting? check

 

fucking finally, thank goodness.

followed eagerly.

There are many good things out there, the sea of mediocrity on which they float makes those tiny islands harder to find but more enjoyable too; now, if one happens to have the disgrace of not finding one those precious islands in long time is easy to feel like a castaway, so welcome to the Golden Kamui island, so far it has been a fucking awesome one.

So I finally managed to catch up to the latest raw chapter which is chapter 38 and I have to say that this is pretty damn great! Really love how the mangaka portrays Hokkaido.

And it definitely gets even better in the later volumes.

The two MCs are definitely my favourites here as they both work well with each other and aren't afraid of fighting pragmatically to get the edge over their opponents.

Dungeon Meshi, two girls living under mushrooms and A BAYONET TO THE FACE. I don't get you, ehscans.

All we know is that all of them are great.

 

You can really tell the author's been doing their homework. The snares they talk about in the beginning are classic.

Side note, the revolver their pursuer is carrying is likely a type 26. Which was used in the Russo-Japanese war as well as both world wars. Functionally it's quite similar to a British Webley revolver. Seriously loving the attention to detail.

 

Yeah, part of what makes this manga enjoyable to me is that is apparent that the author has researched quite well the setting in which he decided to tell this story, maybe it is not quite accurate but in my ignorant eyes the setting of this story feels accurate.

Man! Can't wait to read more!

Thanks for the chapter. As someone that is taking the firsts steps in learning japanese language, those notes that you put in the chapter and in the credits page are quite useful, I guess that in Ainu language the "Y" can be used as a vowel.

Awww, good boy wolfy. He's cute even in attack mode.

Dungeon Meshi, two girls living under mushrooms and A BAYONET TO THE FACE. I don't get you, ehscans.

I'm guessing they translate the ones where the waifus' scents are the strongest.

So far this manga is as good as you could hope for a first chapter, the story is interesting and the information that the manga provides is a good complement. Thanks for this new manga.

The only thing that I hope is that it does not become a victim of its own success, in the comments below someone commented this is quite popular and is selling a lot, I hope that that does not lead this story to be extended beyond necessity, that does not mean that it should be short if the story allows it then I hope it to last 100 chapters, 200 chapters or whatever crazy number, as long as is still as awesome as this first chapter was.

What an odd setting (Hokkaido in the early years of the 20th century) to find so many elements of some the badass classic spaghetti westerns (one of them specially), I wonder if that was intentional or is just that badass epic stories in that particular time frame (after the industrial revolution, mid to late 19th century and pre world war 20th century) just happen to share many similarities and I made that association by coincidence.

Damn....................

GOLD!!!!! THIS MANGA IS GOLD!!!!! -pun intended-

 

looking forward to the next chapters *-----*

Wow,at least another manga that sounds interesting.

I hope the contents live up to my expectation :)

oooh golden kamui finally, now all i need is the scan of No guns life!

INNAWOODS

This group has great taste. I'll love them forever If they also pick up Made in Abyss.

Makes me want to buy a FAL and explore Alaska, this story.
