Is that a Bren gun? What year are we in?



The Russo-Japanese War ended in the nones of September 1905, so it's the winter of 1905/1906 at the earliest.  If the era had changed, though, Noda-sensei would have mentioned it, probably, so at the latest we're talking about the winter of 1911/1912.

 

The Bren entered service in 1938, so it's basically impossible.

 

I was interested in this myself, so I looked for the weapons, this is what I found:

But the weapon that interested me the most was this one:

I first thought it was a submachine gun (its a bit early for that) but after looking closer I saw it was just a reload mechanism (you can see the thing, which is apparently called a "toggle-lock system", going up and back in the right picture and lying flat on the gun in the left one).

So I googled for "pistol weird reload mechanism" and eventually found this one: a Borchardt C-93.

Edit: or I could have read previous comments instead x_x

looks like a madsen lmg


The most interesting firearm in the series so far is bitey's extremely rare and expensive C93 Borchard. I wonder how he got ahold of that. Unlike the Luger or C96 that thing is almost never exported out of Europe and the unique ammo must be impossible to find in Hokkaido.

Watching Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju means that I get the Shinigami reference that Tsurumi's making.  

RIP retar's butt

You know, bitey does have a point: Sugimoto belongs in the 7th! He's just about as messed up in the head as the rest of them. He just didn't turn all dark and gloomy like them.

Anyone fighting for the love of his life is alright in my book

not sure if I should be surprised with that dango stick attack, or the fact that Sugimoto didn't even bothered by it

Thanks for update, #EHS!

Tough luck, Saichi.

I like how this goes from Silver Spoon to Shokugeki no Souma to Berserk in the same chapter.

What's with the spooky black eye pupils on the bad guys?

Spoiler

 

But will it work against Asirpa's sutu?

i hope asirpa come with her anal beads and help sugimoto

Rip in snow

I have no problem if this continues being a low key educational narrative on the Ainu people masked as an adventurous caper for gold and vengeance.

Great, this means that

Spoiler

Does he actually love that other girl or did he say it for friendship?

Do read chapter 6 again. He left the village because he thought he might have Tuberculosis and explicitly said "I'll come back for her". So yes he does. Later chapters also say as much.

I used an ainu-english word list to try a rough translation of what Granny said to Sigimoto.

The taste description and explanation in this manga is on par with Shokugeki no Soma.

hahha for moments I thought the same (the part about the plants helping to reduce the taste of the fat xD)

 

except when they start eating brains or eating heads (it looked like he was going to kiss that otter jajaja)

I guess they cooked every animal on the island, now back to chasing the gold.
