He knows that Riboku will never let them starve in front of his door.

[spoiler]also how I read it, he's preparing to both strain Gyou's resources to breaking and creating a significant subset of the population seeing him as a good and just general who'll be shouting for submission to him if and when the going gets tough.

Cover 46!! Ouki's glaive *o*

I have been curious since the previous (Chapter 45) cover why the cover isn't representing volume 47 that we are on?  Are the covers created for the volumes when they go on sale outside of the magazines?  i.e., English Translations?

 

 

Thanks.

It reminds me of Batman's book "My night life, my night work"

You forgot to add the publisher, "Minmei Publishing Co."

So judging by that chin beard I suppose that this is Riboku’s son?

People always thought i dressed with a mask at night to look like some silly bat , but they never imagined that in fact got the inspiration from the General Ousen and decided to wear a similar mask.

 

Being a very smart tactician, being always prepared for anything, making plans within plans were  General Ousen's trait, and so were mine, i was a fan.

 

I just wish Alfred had left me grow a mustache sooner because unfortunately Zorro beat me to it.

i wonder why batoto 1 chapter behind than the one released by turnip farmer?

btw i just want to say, after reading chapter 314, it reminds me of suikoden 2

kudos to ousen, finally able to show his genius that even riboku couldnt predict :D

 

Someone had mentioned the translators wanted traffic on Sensei-Scans's site by uploading the newest chapters there, which is understandable.  If you go check out their site whenever a chapter is uploaded here you should see the most recently chapter there.  If you click on their group link(placed in front of the chapters) you can find their website link there.

 

Magi and Adventures of Sinbad are also translated there.

Fight against enemy troops, get overwhelmed but kill the enemy commander equates to victory (like lol the rest of the enemy troops must be incompetent buffoons). 

historically, regular soldiers, and even the middle management-type leaders (basically everyone except the generals), were never informed of the overall plan and the campaign's goals, thats why "take out the commander" was always the go-to sure-win move, because they were the only ones that were able to give orders and lead the campaign, because nobody else knew what it was.  how the US military does it (and prolly others now too cuz it works so well), by informing leaders and soldiers at every level of the commander's intent and the mission's goals is a relatively new thing.  its only when you start doing this, establish a chain of command specifically for the contingency of if the commander gets killed and make sure everyone knows the details of the mission, that somebody can step up and fill the dead commander's role with if they get taken out with barely a hiccup.

 

how can the mission continue when the only guy who knows what it is is dead?  then there's also issues of loyalty, payment, etc.  if your boss got killed and you werent gonna get paid, would you keep fighting?  ditto for if you were conscripted against your will.

I think they have a "you can only upload it elsewhere 1 week later" rule.

Let me clarify my remarks, I didn't say Shin has to be a tactical genius, I am saying it gets a little ridiculous how Shin hasn't improved since the first war aside from his physical attributes...

 

Without Shin's limited brain capacity, all the characters will just be standing there nodding their head and knowing the situation while the readers will be going wtf's happening?! The author need to find some way to tell the readers wtf is going on, and that is Shin being dumb, so the people around him will explain stuff to him and us the readers.

Remember when Ouki told Shin to go that warzone and to lead that area, he managed to do that successfully with that Lieutenant; with all the information ever since, it makes me wonder who picked tactics cause Shin sure as hell can't use his brain

 

Lets be honest here, how many new situations are there? Go to a meeting of commanders, embarrass yourself (has happened god knows how many times). Fight against enemy troops, get overwhelmed but kill the enemy commander equates to victory (like lol the rest of the enemy troops must be incompetent buffoons). 

 

And now Ten, the biggest cheat character, ever since her reintroduction as a master strategist, it seems Shin has become more retarded.  You would imagine that after that one chapter where Ten almost gets kidnapped by enemy troops, the author would "introduce" some sensibility or make Shin learn how to lead his troops aside from the Macho gung-ho Popeye BS but nope. 

 

There has been NO IMPROVEMENT IN SHIN aside from his physical attributes. It's irritating that shounen manga create MCs that have glaring weaknesses that dont demonstrate any improvement over the course of years and instead introduce cheat characters that "cover up" his weaknesses.

 

Seriously

The newest chapter is very interesting.

Lol I'm sure the point isn't that he's stupid per se, it's that he reacts the same way practically every time - by shouting in surprise.

 

I also thought of Duke Hyou, but there is a key difference: Duke Hyou didn't react like a surprised child every time shit cropped up on or off the battlefield.  Shin still does though, particularly when the situation has to be played up.  He also reacts "coolly" if he needs to be hyped up, but you understand why that feels so contrived, no?

 

Some consistency in acting "cool" would indicate quite the character growth, especially considering how much time has passed in story.  Keeping in mind that being cool does not have to detract from also being free-spirited/fun-loving.

Roughly 5 if I remember correctly, not more than 7 at best.

 

Thank you :).  It's really drastic when you go back to older chapters and see old Shin, compared to now...  

Nah, Japanese shounen authors just love their dumb protagonists. Shin doesn't have to be as smart as Ten or his two rival officers, he just needs to be average, enough to be bearable. But he has remained the same loud and stupid character that he and numerous other shounen MCs are portrayed as in manga. I personally suspect Shin has a disorder that causes him to react instantly and loudly to the slightest thing that startles him or angers him.
