Description: After a long and treacherous journey, our Hero finally arrives at the Demon Queen’s castle only to find himself being asked for help. The Hero explains how the war that the demons have brought upon the humans have killed thousands and put more in misery. The Demon Queen however argues that this war has made the human society band together as one and showed empirical evidence how it has increased population, increased production, boosted economy and improved society overall. Furthermore, she explains to the Hero that ending this war will result in a civil war that will produce more bloodshed than there ever was. The Hero, convinced that the only way to bring peace, relatively speaking, is to join forces with the Demon Queen, agrees to help with her plans!

One of five simultaneous serializations of the Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. This version was selected as the official manga adaptation of the light novel.

better censor that newest chapter title then since it's literally "muskets" 

Spoiler

Well, I dunno about world wars, but there are a lot of technological steps you can't readily skip.  

Spoiler

That's what makes Leonardo da Vinci both so incredibly amazing and so oddly ineffective--he was so visionary he invented a bunch of stuff before the enabling steps were in place--but then found that without them, his ideas couldn't be realized.  Poor guy, I always found that kind of tragic.

 

In this manga they just skip steps because Crimson Scholar is the only one with inventions, and she already has every enabling step if she needs to throw it in. She's trying to give the bare minimum and control technology, with the rate she's rolling it out she should be able to stay ahead since theoretically she'll always be able to roll something new out before everyone else can reverse engineer the old tech, and before they can make impactful changes or additions, as whatever changes they would make would instantly be obsolete by the next level.

 

I don't see them getting to the nuke stage. When science is ready it's true it's discovered in multiple places at once when things line up, which is a very interesting phenomena. I think it's more because science isn't so much "invention" as it is "discovery" of harnessing natural reactions and rules that already exist. We learn how to harness in a progressive fashion however. In this manga we're looking back, but I just don't see them getting to the modern era.

Bottom line is that muskets didn't transform the battlefield, they transformed warfare.  I'm disappointed though unsurprised that the manga is using the "dramatic new tech, gunpowder, blows everyone away" approach; I've seen it too often before.

 

I think that's really prevalent in manga because of Nobunaga and his use of muskets, and how devastating he was able to be with them. 

Well ... history and mythology can be both somewhat strange ,,,

Why would they need to do so? As we discussed earlier they've been skipping steps. It's thought Crimson Scholar may be an alien or from the future or something, and have very advanced technology. They're not actually developing the technology and economic theories, Crimson Scholar is just applying it as she sees fit.

BTW, while early-style muskets generally can't be used to snipe (because they don't have any sort of aiming aid - iron sights came in the 17th century)

That isn't why.  Muskets don't have rifled barrels.  If they do, they're called "rifles".  And firearms without rifled barrels don't have a long accurate range 'cause the bullets don't spin and after a while they just randomly judder around from air resistance.  It doesn't matter how good you are.

I don't like the way the muskets were brought into this.  Having them

is fine.  But the battlefield impact is in my opinion BS.

To reach Atomic Age they would need 2 World War and none magic so that they must research a way to kill enemy using science while keep major of foot soldiers alive.

 

Aside from that, I am really curious at our loli magician now. She devoted herself to the Hero, I don't think she calmly stay there watching hero suffer without purpose. Unless she snapped 'cause being ignored all the time by him or jealousy of "plot".

They're not actually developing the technology and economic theories, Crimson Scholar is just applying it as she sees fit.

 

And if the people she gives the tech to are modifying it themselves as well in ways she didn't think would happen, it would make sense she's surprised and that the technology would be different in the manga than what we would assume historically--either it is a different type of history from an alien civilization or it is now modified, either way, we the readers won't know it.

So - apparently, you can somehow cast strong enough magic to contain the Hero and Blue Demon King using... 250 priests.  And one Pope to curse the said bullets for everyone.  Sad to hear that when you consider the power-levels of Hero and Blue Demon King.

 

Either that or they both are too much into attack magic and don't know how to deal with curse magic.  Somehow, I can see that.

 

I guess they did they homework over the course of the last couple of hundred years. Magical research and stuff ...

Or it's just because people don't like to call someone they know for a long time with other name.

this is the #1 reason for any outcry.  "Sorceress" is fine and sounds more natural, people just don't like change.  scanlators, use whatever term you feel best conveys the meaning and nuances behind the word being translated, the fans will get used to it.

 

Her official name is 女魔法使, which should be translated as "Female Magician" or "Female Sorcerer"

And to think of another name for "Female Sorcerer", it's  "Sorceress"

Moreover, Female Magician is somehow, like a direct translation of her Japanese name, sounds forced and seems of bad vocabulary using.

 

 

 

Question about that - isn't every other name in this series just simply literal direct translated names of their classes?  Granted, most of the other names don't even have a gender as part of their title - Female Knight (女騎士) being a major exception.  Similar can be said for Big Sister Maid and Little Sister Maid (メイド妹 - メイド姉) which the term 'sister' does imply female.

 

Oh well.  I'm not the one translating, so I'll read what I get either way.  Keep up with the good work!

 

(Oh, I also freely admit - I'm just far more used to the name Female Magician, that's it.  It has nothing to do with the tone or implication behind the term 'sorceress' or 'magician'.)

I thought that English users also refer using Sorceress to Female Magician, right?


Personally I think either one is fine,but the reason for mostly negative feedback is,in my opinion,about images.

Magician usually are beginner magic users-young and eager to learn&prove their worth.Or if they're older,an older&wiser version of those youngling.Their magic is mostly basic stuff (throw bolts of lighting/ball of fire etc.) or some stronger variant.

Sorceress,however,usually are someone that's more adept at magic and have their own focused magecraft,often involve hex and curse.And also frequently wearing sexy,skimpy dress and have vary degrees of temptress habit.

So,our Female Mage here,who's looking young and quite a bit aloof,fit the images associate with "magician" more.

Or it's just because people don't like to call someone they know for a long time with other name.

Hate the new name for Female Magician. Doesn't fit.

 

My personal preference?  I prefer Female Magician, thank you very much :)

We have Female Knight, why not just keep it as Female Magician? XD

The staffs (translator, proofreader and me) thought that Sorceress should be the better alternative. 
 
I thought that English users also refer using Sorceress to Female Magician, right?

Just notice in the last page, from now on we will use Sorceress instead of Magician or Lady Magician. Do you feel like it?

​No, they're right.  Early firearms were routinely stopped by plate armor.  Yes, of course plate armor from back then is worse than what we could produce now...  but guns have advanced much much more.  At the time of the Revolutionary War, bullets would often be stopped by plate armor at longer distances, and in fact our term 'bulletproof' actually derives from the practice of testing armor with a bullet as 'proof' of its strength.

 

​However, armor was heavy and expensive and generally not worth the effort even then, not when you could arm large numbers of people with guns very cheaply instead.  And over time, guns improved to the point where armor couldn't keep up.

​But a crappy 16th century musket isn't going to reliably pierce steel when fired at a distance; it's not like it's a modern handgun or anything.

Those bullets are not normal bullets they've been enhanced by magic, that's the only reason they were able to get through the armor. I believe that thing was already explained in the newest chapter

you don't need to put stuff from the beginning of the manga in spoilers.  heck, even stuff a few chapters back doesn't need to be.  people complaining about "spoilers" because they haven't been reading the manga or keeping up to date on it are self-centered, selfish pricks.  newsflash - the universe doesn't revolve around you (people not staying current), neither the real one nor the story one.  how conceited can you be, expecting either to stay on hold until you finally decide to grace it with your presence?  its your own fault for not staying current, so you have no right to bitch about "spoilers" for anything except unpublished/untranslated chapters.

@tathra Since you've made a public declaration to [everyone] I've made a public rebuttal that is as much said for [everyone]'s hearing as it is for yours. I am clarifying so that you might understand this is not how I would reply to you on a personal level.Rather, as your comment was a declaration so too is this reply. For that reason it may come off as a bit harsher than I intend it to. Apologies, I do not mean to offend or give insult; I simply desire to expand upon the subject you have brought forth.

Plate armor was discontinued by the time of the Revolutionary War.

 

You have no idea wtf you're talking about.

What they need right now is kevlar, lol

I don't like spoiler either. Just think that "oh, ppl already knew what would happen in this chapter, so why should I keep doing it?"

Too bad batoto admin and mod revolve around them . Newflash - THAT TICKBOX WE HAVE TO CLICK TO COMMENT . Never before i've witness such praises ,worship , favorism for the lazy people .And we diligent people that actually keep up get punishes

I'm starting to wonder what the definition of a spoiler is.

Page 5 says 'Volume 11' and the descriptions of Younger Sister Maid and Elder Sister Maid got a bit confused there. :P Still a huge thx for all your work on this, you're all as awesome as this Manga itself, MTO-staff. ( ‘з’)/

I will fix them then :( thanks for the report. 

The biggest issue is that you guys are assuming this is early 16th century muskets. Given the size of them compared to the shooter, Demon Queen skipped a few steps in development. 16th century was still using arquebus' and if you compare the general appearance of the guns, these are not arquebus due to lack of a lit rope used as a match. They look more like flintlocks and if they are, by then, the guns were more than capable of punching through standard armour when in effective range.

 

The issue i have with the argument about "tested" armour is that that is under the assumption that the armour tested is for all soldiers. They're not. Those are made by skilled blacksmiths and cost a mint to make. The common soldier armour was pooped out by the hundreds and those definitely did not reliably stop muskets. 

 

But thats just the armour vs musket argument. Specifically in this case with the Hero being shot, I'll admit that it puching through the Hero's armour is a bit dubious because that armour would have been probably one of the ones that could deflect a bullet and  given the range, he probably had a higher chance of actually being protected, but somebody did say "Magic".

 

You may be right.
