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.

rip fish-eyes guy

good riddance, Should have killed it with fire while he was at it, too. But I guess we can't have everything.

Did the author just technically break the 4th wall and make a jab at himself on the last page (of the main story)?

 

If so, that's pretty hilarious.

Is it? Is it really though :| ?

Yes.

That's so funny, I'm at a loss for words.

that drippy forehead guy (i forget his name and am too lazy to look it up) really hates that ear...

That is fucking HILARIOUS.

Now I'm only waiting for Sougo and Kondo to join Hijikata

Osoma and Ears.

That's all I can think about for a while, after reading this chapter

This is the greatest manga I've read in a while.

This chapter is superb! The classic movie poster style, The swordfight, Gangster's family stuff, and of course, Asirpa and her obsession to osoma

No matter how old you are, osoma jokes are always funny.

After that showdown... It was refreshing to see Inspector Gadget, I mean, Sugimoto again. But the whole osoma thing... Oy XD.

Great ending of great volume! Thank you for translation of it #EHS!

My boner is outta this world

There still has been no proof of what happened with the second prisoner's skin.  Talking about it's "lost" means nothing since they need all of the skins in order to find the treasure.

 

The skin isn't with the 7th, since they only have 1 skin.

 

I'm assuming someone might find it randomly and start becoming part of this "game."  Maybe Hijikata found it.  We shall see, but I hope it just wasn't "forgotten" and the mangaka has plans for it.

 

 

----------------------------------------------------------------

 

Also...  Shinpachi is such a badass, he isn't scared of the Undefeated Judo guy either.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

I find it interesting how there are so many sides to this, but it seems the 7th army is the most "unstable" of all.

 

I wonder if Ogata will join Hijikata's crew.  I have a feeling that Hijikata is the type of guy who doesn't care if they were once enemies, as long as their goals are the same, they will work together.  Plus Hijikata has a ton of pride, and isn't really scared to get his hands dirty, and loves the "Thrill of the fight."

Nevermind, I misunderstood what they said here; http://bato.to/reader#c63f0de79f87a0d4_4 and here http://bato.to/reader#ed1b0d0c11686a7d I always thought the guy the 7th shot was Tsuyama because I thought the 3 guys lost were Tanigaki's old unit. So basically Ogata shot him dead then got rescued by the 7th but never told them about the body because he was KO. Therefore the body was lost.

Lol, no need explaining, that was kind of a sarcasm. Somehow, seeing you so confident wad kinda funny at first, but then it ticked me a little off.

Therefore the body was lost.

No, its not, they skinned the body, thats how they had the skin, duh.
__________________________
For clarify: The guy in question was shot by the sniper, the sniper was from 7th division, so he was shot by the 7th division.
The Tsuyama dude was probly the skin that the metal head wore.

They are fuuuuuuuuuuucked.

Yeesh, sssr’s jimmies have been seriously rustled ...

It's now officially a Ramen Western up in this biz!

I might have missed something, what chapter was that?

It's been real half of volume already xD

Thanks for translation #EHS!

But for the first time in the manga the unbeared old Samurai is about to wreck stuff!

The 7th got his corpse. This was mentioned in a later chapter.

I might have missed something, what chapter was that?

 

1.  They didn't show what happened?  They showed a battle between this private of the 7th army and then they ran away.  There was no mention if they skinned teh guy, tried to redraw it, or what happened after they fought.

 

2.  Yes, and sadly we have an annoying character for half of the story.  I wouldn't mind learning about her history and all of that, but she is one of those very annoying types that shouldn't be in manga in the first place.  Reminds me of Aru No Index's girl MC...

 

3.  Um, there is plenty of instances where Sugimoto doesn't follow her around, and plenty of chanceds to not be in the forest i.e., hang out at the Ainu village.  There is no reason to stay in a forest that is filled with the guys who are trying to capture you.  They also could have procured a place at some inn in order to get shelter.  Many different things could have happened, but they just left themselves at bait pretty much.

 

I guesss we will see what happens from here on out.

 

1. The 7th got his corpse. This was mentioned in a later chapter. Given metalhead's habit of making skin shirts it's obvious what they did with said corpse.

 

2. You haven't been reading enough manga (or watched enough Miyazaki). Asirpa is a Mononoke-hime archetype with Nausicaa's personality. Her character archetype actually predates even Sugimoto's 1970s movie tough guy model because Asirpa, San, and Nausicaa (as well as classic characters like Oscar de Jarjayes and Utena) were all modeled after Tezuka's Princess Knight. Hers is one of the oldest female character archetypes in manga. If anything, she has MORE right to be in a manga than ALL the movie-inspired male characters in this manga combined. Also, Sapphire was 13 when the story started and got married to Franz at 16, so the age issue predates the loli angle by four decades. A hell lot of classic manga MCs - male and female - were this age (Amuro Ray being an interesting case - yeah, Bright, suuuuure... the FUCKING THIRTEEN YEAR OLD CIVILIAN BOY has to act like a adult and risk HIS life to defend YOUR ship because YOU'RE too incompetent to ride the fucking giant robot that a fucking random little kid can ace? Really, Bright? Really?).

 

Hhhhhhhh....

 

To be completely honest, if you look at Asirpa's character and the first thing that crosses your mind is "Oh, look! A loli!" YOU'RE the one with a problem, not Asirpa...

 

3. There is a 7th garrison in town. Read the fucking manga. The main reason they stayed in the forest was because metalhead CONTROLLED THE FUCKING TOWN. This is why everyone hightailed outta there and went to a different town. Well, two different towns now. In any case both Sugimoto and Asirpa are still broke. They're living on uncle's cash and whatever the excrement king claimed to have swiped (but probably got on loan from Hijikata)

1.  They didn't show what happened?  They showed a battle between this private of the 7th army and then they ran away.  There was no mention if they skinned teh guy, tried to redraw it, or what happened after they fought.

1. It's never showed that they skinned anyone. So it's pointless for you to only question that 1 instance.
As for your question, remember when they got chased by 3 soldiers and splat up? The only stuffs that the loli carried were the skins, no picture whatsoever.
 
3. The army stays mostly in the town, they only come to the forest to hunt specific persons or matching. Also, Scar-face and loli didnt always stay in the forest.
 

2.  Yes, and sadly we have an annoying character for half of the story.  I wouldn't mind learning about her history and all of that, but she is one of those very annoying types that shouldn't be in manga in the first place.  Reminds me of Aru No Index's girl MC...

2. That's your opinion, man, at least shes not a side character.
As for my suggestion before, I dont read (or skim read at most) stuffs that, half of their stories, I hate. For example:

Spoiler

Shit is about to get real.

It's been real half of volume already xD
