And this chapter ends volume 1's LN. I only got up to this point so I'm excited for the next chapters.

I don't get it, why was the elf girl evil? Also she didn't die did she?

Arata got her out of the base before, and she wasn't necessarily at the battlefield the second time. Since she's an operator, she was probably back at the nearest base relaying orders, and got them to broadcast her demand to release Arata.

The children think she's a demon because of her unnaturally long ears.

That's one reason, but Djibril also doesn't want that elf getting close to her man.

Chapter 16 and 17 raise so many unanswered questions. It looked like the whole camp got killed or captured, but for some reason only omar and the MC got captured, and Sofia seems to have escaped somehow, even though she was last seen surrounded.

 

That timeskip doesnt even make any sense. Omar and the MC would have been stopped at the airport if they tried to leave the country, since the authorities know they were hostages. I doubt they even had their passports with them when they got captured. There's a ton of other unresolved issues, like their contract with the PMC, how they managed to bring a bunch of foreign children fighters to Japan (pro tip : immigration will laugh at you if you try), etc.

 

I hope the next couple of chapters wrap up all these loose ends.

 

 

Authorities in the middle east, caring about some mercenaries without passports? Nigga, I can assure you that money can take care of that.

The timeskip is of 1 year in which they work as mercenaries and then go to japan (they where looking for money I think)

Like I said before, fake papers are relative easy to obtain, especially in third world countries and the likes. 

About bringing kid soldiers to Japan (by airport no less), you can simply say that their in a school trip.

Man, this would make for an awesome Black Lagoon crossover.

Now where is the Big Boss when we need him with all the proxy war goin' on.

He is busy sending everything that isn't bolted down in the area into space while hiding in his box screaming Otacon.

man, this series is so good.
 
i think its even better than GATE a thousand times.

Don't really see how you can compare the 2 aside from military operations aspect and GATE only gets that on and off. Gate seems to focus on that whole other world hype train that was going on with some politic BS mixed in rather than the whole combat operations where this manga focuses on. However I think this so far feels kind of rushed and vague in some areas and found some things rather off.
Spoiler

I guess I am not only one here that found this interesting, keep it up :)

Will we see more of the prostitute in future chapters?

man, this series is so good.

That "even" there is weird.

Hum.. has it been axed?

Definitely not axed, it seems more like the end of the manga volume. There are translations of a few of the LN volumes and it seems like the story keeps going. 

the novel proceeded the same way and it at least continues on

Hum.. has it been axed?

Is this the end? thats a really rushed end if it is

It feels kind of rushed.

The children think she's a demon because of her unnaturally long ears.

The villagers don't even know who they're fighting, but it's understandable they see every enemy as America. I think they should have clarified that it was government forces trained by PMC fighting local Taliban/Warlords with US air support. Elf didn't get any development, and they mostly just focused on why the brats had no where to go and no other loyalties. It seems like there was a dropped plotline somewhere and they just wanted to rush through how Arata got his own PMC.

They went too far with making the villagers sympathetic. They sold their children to a PMC as bodyshields. They attacked government forces and blocked their passage so of course there was going to be retaliation. Why couldn't they just be left alone? Because when we built them a soccer stadium they used it as an execution ground for beheading journalists. Not to mention all the colorful traditions and values these locals have like FGM and child brides. Not like the government forces are any better though, those fuckers had little boys running out of their tents every night. I think the main problem is that they leave the government forces as faceless and enigmatic while Arata interacts with his PMC superiors and the locals.

The last page scared me i thought it was the end

chapter 16 is on translator group's page, but idk if they will continue this project or not, because it has already been five
months since last chapter.

Chapter 17 is already released.

If you look at the situation at hand (only situation and actions) - it's scumbaggiest of scumbags... But it still written in such way you want to root for him.

I want to read more, when is new chapters going to be released?
