Cucked.

 

He is going to get unnecessarily jealous, or try to get Shigeo to help him kill the others if he success he doesn't has to worry about the opposing group, and if he falls he gets to keep the girl.

 

Of course it is all for naught because our boy has way better ass waiting for him on the previous village.

Cucked.

Congratulations on your 100th chapter! Dumbnut.

I'm curious on what ground the author decided to kill off the girl. Was it the pressure from editor or the fans sent some letters of dissatisfaction after the previous chapter... I's inconsitent...The MC talking about keeping alive yet killing the girl which symbolises the future...

Or grow up to be old and jaded and disillusioned. Or maybe-

 

"The old pick finally broke and the man in rags collapsed. He had spent a month trudging through the desert in pursuit of another clue, his rations quickly disappearing, his life ticking away with every gulp of water. The weather had changed so dramatically that he had long ago lost track of time. How many years? How many abandoned friends and bitter sacrifices on the road to his family?

 

He had spent the last leg of his journey in a delirium, moving forward because that was the only thing left. The last scrap of food was gone, and hardly anything lived in this scarred desert.

 

Lying face-first in a bed of gravel, feeling in his bones and his burning skin that the end was at hand, the man had a moment of clarity. A voice - though not so much a voice as a realization - spoke at the back of his mind; it spoke the truth he had refused to acknowledge. How his family had been with him on the day of the cave-in, how they had fallen into an underground ravine before his journey had even begun. The man knew, he had known all along, that they had simply been a reason to move forward, one he had failed to abandon. Was it the sense of purpose? The feeling of belonging he could not experience with the companions he found along the way? Why had he allowed himself to keep following the delusion?

 

The man died without knowing the answer."

 

So his family was all along on his sniper island.

I don't get it either.

at this rate our boy will develop a severe adrenaline addiction.

You'll learn when you're older.

Looks like this arc will be a Lord of the Flies parallel.

But none of 'em have the ass-mar!

He still got screwed over, but no waterfall... i wanted to see him survive some watery falls, oh well.

I don't get these two comments.

Future village chief, check.

Future wife, check.

Future stepdad who's overly protective of his daughter, and who murdered those who even vaguely threatened to take his position from him,check.

 

If it's Satoru, he wouldn't have understood the circumstances until a knife was pointed towards him.

 

After Satsuki and Saturo get married, Satsuki will say "Wow, Satoru, you're so experienced!"

Satoru: "Thanks. I had plenty of experience with a crazy and sick woman right before she died."

I mean, the temperature was going up for the longest time, and this was like the first rain MC had seen in a LONG time. I'd honestly say the forest was still pretty dry, even given the rainstorm.

That doesn't makes the fire any less convenient, with the timing.

 

And you know what would also have some good timing? if this river leads to a waterfall, i feel like this manga could do with some good waterfalls, it will add to the aesthetics.

At that point it was pretty much cemented that he will be forgiven if he helps with the extremely convenient fire that is taking place in the very wet forest.

Food for the fish...

The kid's pretty spry for someone with a cracked sternum.

 

BTW, thanks very much to the translators. You've put in a lot of work so the rest of us lazy bastards don't have to learn Japanese. :D

I know right? just brought back from drowning and there he is cutting down trees.

 

 

How I imagine the grandpa saying to the priest when I read his stupid line:

Spoiler

As if he's scolding a child for eating cookies before dinner, undermining the gravity of what he did. The sheer cheesiness pops up every now and then, showing the old age of this series.

die damn kid... you never learn... now i don't care of satoru anymore..

at long last, sweet release.

He was a flying fire type all along, fissure and earthquake did nothing to him, but the moment you hit him with torrent there he goes and dies.
