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.

Shit is about to get real.

Noda Satoru has made a greatly enjoyable manga. It got some recycled idea. But he put it in new setting and new medium, told it with different approach from the one used in many other of the same medium. And woila, He got this awewome works. Go recycle! And EverydayHeroes scans thank you for doing a great translation and reference explanation work. It makes my day ;)

what a badass old man!

Does it bother anyone else that escape king...

 

 

Spoiler

 

It seems that things are getting a bit more interesting now that they are starting to travel to other places.

 

The sniper dude is destiny to be beaten, 1st by Sugimoto, 2nd by Tanigaki and now by Hijikata.
Poor dude trying to be badass.
 

Consider your above problems, particularly the 2nd, I honestly suggest you stop reading this.
In detail:
1- Since the dude died, what else?
2- The "ainu girl" is a main character. She makes up half the story.
3- She stays in the forest because she is an ainu hunter. The 'scar face dude' (see what I did here?) was just kind of following her, beside the guy is dirt poor (thats why he needs to find the treasure in the first place), and they also had a whole army chasing them.

 

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.

While I kind of agree with sssr's assessment I lean more towards Asirpa being the typical otaku-bait loli secondary MC with waifu tendencies. Of course the story has to be spun around her, otherwise there would be no reason to continue featuring the loli.

whatever makes anyone think that there is anything "typical" in this work means that they miss board picture of the mainstream manga world and of this work in particular.

 

While I can concede that it goes by the book, is just completely and magnificently exploits all the limits of the book making it an extremely well crafted work as I haven't seen in a decade or more as I already said.

 

So far it keeps surpassing my expectations, and it's weekly!

A loli with an old woman’s face though. The worst kind of loli :/

I wouldn’t stick my dick in that. Ainu loli = shit tier, apparently. Even her hunting and cooking skills don’t make up for this :|

More like 90% by now. She's technically the pivot the entire story is revolving around and sorta rightful heir to the gold.

 

Basically this is the story of alpha-as-fuck wolf-riding warrior/gourmand princess Asirpa, her two pets, and the badass mofos trying to steal her inheritance. She doesn't ride her wolf anymore, but she got a new pet/uncle in exchange. When you think about it, pet #1 got about as much exposition of his background and motives as whale bait Henmi Kazuo, and we still don't know what's up with the excrement king other than that his brain might be tasty.

lol... i've just realize how true this is

More like 90% by now.

I find that there are 2 points about this manga, 1st is Ainu and their gold which she presents, 2nd is pokemon creepy ex-prisoner hunting.

2- The "ainu girl" is a main character. She makes up half the story.

Whoa! It all went down to an great scene! Western in japanese setting, and mangaka doing great work bringing exactly same feeling as from watching something like "Zatoichi" or "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly". That style of using pure black shadows totally suits this story!

 

#EHS, thank you for translation of this!

1- Did they ever mention what happened to the first guy's tattoo that they tried to copy? They were attacked and their copy was covered in blood, and their target killed, but nothing ever mentioned what happened after.... Did they skin the guy?


2- Also... As much as I liked this the first 15 or so chapters, it's honestly getting boring learning all about this Ainu's life, and all these nasty dishes. The ainu girl was interesting at first, but started getting that Typical annoying side character, which I'm not sure why Mangaka add them, because they are annoying.

3- Why have they been in the forest for so long and can't just stay at some inn or something?

maybe it's from this song?? (not sure even what the song is about, only that is catchy af)

Hrm... that's a good match, between the cheer girl, awkward dancing, and stair + stripes stage. The song lyrics are pretty vague, but the title is 'new treasure island', and GK troupe are certainly seeking treasure.

I suspect the video for Shin Takarajima is based on this one from The Drifters:

can someone tell where is the reference for this?? (first page of ch.55)

Hijikata is just a bit hardcore.

lol

Matsumae-zuke is about the only dish I can actually make that's been featured in this manga (YOU go ahead and try locating some squirrel brains), and it's actually pretty good. I just happen to have a stash of takuan and leftover dried squid from the local Japanese grocery and the mixture of the takuan's sweet and sour and the squid's saltiness was perfect!

I love those parts of manga, when mangaka takes a time for some characters other than main protagonists. Another great arc! It smells like some western in japanese style.

efficient eh... what an old man

HE'S A FUCKING FISHMAN WHAT THE FUCK

HAIL DAGON!

so, when will we get back to the main story?
stories about cooking ainu dish
*slurps* :9

don't really care for elaborate cousine per se, but indeed the times where the 2 protagonists went out hunting (with the occasional soldier encounter) was probably this manga at its best.

Wait so did they fuck? or no?

If nothing else, his answer to the question of love indicates a “no”.

HE'S A FUCKING FISHMAN WHAT THE FUCK

Considering his name is Umakichi, I suspect it's meant to be a horse-ish face.  Big eyes, big nose, buck teeth.
Unless you're referencing some joke I don't get, in which case, carry on.
