 You won`t get a "100% sure" answer unless a naval/aviation expert is around here, so let me go how I imagined it: diesel/kerosene is still diesel/kerosene. Likely with lower octane number at that age and it might cause problems in the long run, but there shouldn't be issues in the short and mid term. 
 That as a rationale works for me and I decided not to dig deeper.

And their modern ship could run on that old stuff no problem?

I know that they refueled in the manga. I am questioning them having the kind of fuel that would be required for the Mirai back in the 1940s.

they have limited diesel production at this era beside high quality crude oil.

So ... I guess they chose to ignore that issue? Or am I to believe that their ship can run on the kind of kerosene they had lying around back then?


If it's fuel, they were supplied with it by Japanese Imperial Navy, if it's ammo it's decreasing. Same goes for ship's durability.

Darn toot’n!!!

 

Having just started reading this manga, I wonder how they will address the issue of resupplies. Their modern equipment might be fancy and all but not worth very much after its required resources run out (specialized fuel, ammunition etc.).

 

Also:

Spoiler

Jesus what a cliffhanger!

I've reuploaded Chapter 93. Hopefully it will work now

Is it just me or is Chapter 93 'Resistance', all fugged up?  No pages load...

A shame there aren't really many manga these days that reach such a length.

Well, there's "Oh My Goddess", at 31 volumes (195 chapters), "Mahou Sensei Negima", which was cut short at 38 volumes (355 chapters).

 

This particular mangaka is currently publishing a medieval version of Zipang, which is at 19 volumes right now, and a story about Japan suddenly rising to the challenge of China's new aircraft carrier.  That series is at seven volumes so far.

 

There's no way he could output all that himself, so I suppose he has a staff to help him.  Especially since he is 69 years old now.  He's been putting out manga since 1982.

I may be dead by then, but who's counting?  Sufficient for now that the scanlation is moving along once more.

Awwwww <3 Also, ANOTHER VOLUME FINISHED!!! EHEHEHE

More next week, hopefully~

My god, i'm probably gonna be married before this project is finished.

Wanting to get the final chapter count, I just now opened up volume 43 and looked through to the last chapter.  Without going to the trouble of actually translating it properly, I can only say it reminds me of the end of the movie, "The Final Countdown".  I won't say why, as that would be a spoiler.

 

BTW, that was chapter 423.

They did say "we won't sink the fleet with missile" and now they need to do it in order to survive (spam missiles). Moral lose this day.

@LOLScans - You're moving along nicely now.  Thanks.  There are only 34 more volumes to go...

LOL let us still be alive for that~

and thanks!

New chapter still messed up. 'CDN NYC'.

Chapter 94 is fine, but I still get "CDN UK" on the previous two.

 

New chapter still messed up. 'CDN NYC'.

Guys, I don't know what's going on. I've never seen this problem before. I think it's something to do with the uploader.

 

We host the chapters ourselves on our own website:

I will have to look into this. First the direct upload breaks, now the remote one does too. Weird.

FWIW, the chapters can be read over on the LOL Scans web site.  But not every path leads to the manga properly.  Go here, and select Zipang from the various series listed there.

 

That said, I wish they'd fix their problems here.  Whatever they are.

Is it just me, or is chapter 91 broken? (getting a blank page with bold "CDN UK" letters)

 

I'm getting something similar. For future reference (assuming you weren't aware), you can check the "Quality Assurance" section of the forum or post a thread if one hasn't been created for issues like this.

 

ps - I just posted a thread about the ch91 problem.

Is it just me, or is chapter 91 broken? (getting a blank page with bold "CDN UK" letters)

I think that American will see Japanese embark into the ship and will say it's American secret plotter fault :D
