we all have a bit of ogata in us

You're being both anachronistic and out of context. Ultramarathon runners in the modern era have normal physical states unachievable before the 20th century. They live day-in-day-out on special diets and training regimes that modify their caloric intake and musculature far beyond the norm. All this is made possible only with the medical science of the post-WW2 era. In the Meiji-Taisho era ultramarathon was not even possible to attempt for the best athletes. Context is important. The way modern ultramarathoners achieve their 24-hour running distances is impossible to emulate during an all-out prison break. Yiannis Kouros when he broke the 300km record was supported by a team of 11 which in turn was supported by a 47-strong logistics department. The support team moved ahead of him by car and set up rest stations on the way, while the logistics department literally sourced Greek sweets along the route and ferried them to the support team. Kouros had to eat EVERY TWENTY MINUTES to maintain his pace (and stay alive). I personally have serious doubts about the 200km in one day claim. This would probably have been calculated based on sighting frequency (which allows the use of transportation between points) instead of a rigorous accounting of the run. 200km a day should have been humanly impossible in the period depicted in the manga.

Human beings are designed to be long distance hunters, aka Persistence hunting. One of the oldest ways to hunt a deer without any tools is to literally follow it for hours or days until the stress blows it's heart out and it dies (or you catch up and stab/bludgeon it to death). Almost every animal is built for speed, not distance and persistence which is where humans get the leg up. 

 

It would only be harmful if the guy ran every single day like that without eating or drinking well in the long term. You don't "need" to eat every 20 minutes to stay alive, that's just ideal conditions. A trained runner can go almost 20km before "refueling" with water and food. 

 

Also, pointing this out, Yiannis did 100 miles (160km) in 11 hours at 13 km per hour on flat road, which is a pretty slow jog all things considered. If the dude ran for 16 hours, stopping to scrounge/steal food and water, and went downhill at any point he easily could have hit 200km in one day.

angel of death, patron mother of brains cuisine

Were the translations off on this one?

>Hanazawa is family name

>Ogata's father is a lieutenant general, his half brother is a second lieutenant

>Ogata kill his father but ruled as suicide, he also kill his half brother

nah bro, his son is 2nd liutenant like koito

i'm not sure if Ogata raised death flag
tanigaki did it once before remember?
the only confirmed death flag on this manga so far is "cute animal doing cute thing with angel of death asirpa"

I personally have serious doubts about the 200km in one day claim. [...] 200km a day should have been humanly impossible in the period depicted in the manga.

Did you accidentally a word?

And sure, 300km was not possible for people a century ago but that’s not what I was suggesting. All I was saying is that given how much they exaggerate the legendary feats elsewhere in the manga, it seems weird to go with a “merely” extraordinary one in this instance.

But alright, what would you say a realistic 24-hour distance would have been at that time? I’m asking because in other fields (e.g. various forms of jumping, 100 meter dash, weightlifting, ...) the world records did not change as drastically within the past 100 years as you seem to imply they changed for ultramarathons. Is that just because the latter weren’t really a thing for the longest time? ’Cause I don’t see how else you wanna make an argument for the humanely possible distance increasing by over 100%!

I mean, yeah, training methods, diet and stuff improved but human physiology is still more or less the same. People certainly haven’t become more than twice as powerful as their ancestors a few generations back.

200km in a day is a shitload, because assuming he ran non-stop and ran for 20 hours, it's still a decent speed of 10km/h.

And if he runs without sleeping for that 24 hour period it’s just ~8.3 km/h. But of course it’s a shitload. I’m just saying that it’s not “Wow, what a demigod!” material — unlike some of the other characters’ talents.
God I love Koito so much, what a creepy fucker

holy crap ogata is such a monster. He can't be trusted, but I like this guy.

>Talks about (past) favourite food
>Talks about his motives
>Talks about his whole history almost out of nowhere
If this was any other manga, he's 100% going to be dead in the next arc. Surely, the author will play with that expectation and not kill him.

Please don't die, I like the dude.

ogata isn't talking about his history in the story's present time, Ogata is reminiscing (thinking) about the time when he was telling his dying father (whom he probably killed) about his history

I'll raise you one Cliff Young and a couple thousand years worth of east african cattle rustlers.

I see what you did there with Asirpa and that cute mouse and all i have to say is f@ck you too buddy.

200km isn’t even that impressive, all things considered. Sure, it’s a whole lot more than the average person can do but it’s far from legendary (which is, I think, what they were going for here). People have run upwards 300km in one day.

...Who? Even if you assume they ran for 15 hours, that's a 20km/h pace. On a bike that's an accomplishment, but who the hell can sprint at bike speeds for 15 hours?

 

200km in a day is a shitload, because assuming he ran non-stop and ran for 20 hours, it's still a decent speed of 10km/h.

Asirpa is like a daughter, sister, mother, and grandmother combined into one.... best pet ever...

Presumably not. But I also doubt that they were running on uneven ground or earth like he would have. Running downhill is easier and all that :P
 
All I am saying is that if they were gonna exaggerate then they could have done it to a greater extent :B

I seem to remember that a character very similar in motif to the Japanese Bonnie made an appearance in the classic Samurai Executioner (Kubikiri Asa) manga. Shinko the Kappa might have been based on the historical Ogin the Viper if she did exist.

Hm, but did they also do it barefoot?

Thanks a lot for all the amazing work! :-)

Bonnie and Clyde? Nah, they'll be Pumpkin and Honey Bunny, and they'll have the Jules treatment in the next few chapters.
