Sangokushi v46 (complete)

Time to resume after a short break. The Southern campaigns is now kicking into full gear. It's a little odd how long this whole story-line is (5 chapters in novel, 4 and a half volumes in this manga), considering the Nanman tribes are barely mentioned, much less play a role, before and after this arc. In comparison, the hugely important Red Cliffs story-line is 7 chapters long (counting from Zhuge Liang's arrival to Wu until Guan Yu letting Cao Cao escape). As such, it might feel like a "filler arc," in the loose sense of that word, but it's still an entertaining campaign nonetheless as the exotic southern locale brings surprises unlike any in the story so far. I hope you have fun reading it.


*VOLUME 46 NOW COMPLETE. I'm also going to take a short break and start v47 in June.

Sangokushi v45 (complete)

Time for v45, "Liu Bei's Death." Although the volume's title certainly leaves little room for surprises, it'll be a fun read and Zhuge Liang's famous Southern campaigns will finally begin at the end!
Finally, the campaign begins! Also, I realized I accidentally typed Nanman as Naiman in pg 92, probably because I was thinking of the Naiman turks from the Chinggis Khan manga I recently translated. For those curious, Nan () means South, and Man () means barbarian, so Nanman literally means Southern barbarian. Incidentally, the same term was used by the Japanese ("Nanban" in Japanese pronunciation) to describe the Western Europeans, because they sailed up from Indonesia and the Philippines to reach Japan.

*VOLUME 45 NOW COMPLETE, WITH TYPO IN PAGE 92 FIXED.

Sangokushi v44

Going to be non-stop war for quite some volumes from hereon. Although Red Cliffs overshadows the other conflicts of the book in popular media, the wars triggered by Guan Yu's death is another exciting part of the story where the stakes run high. It's a shame the 2010 tv series pretty much skips both the Wei-Wu war and Zhuge Liang's southern campaigns.
*VOLUME 44 NOW COMPLETE. PAGE 91 WAS MISSING FROM THE CHAPTER RELEASES AND HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE VOLUME FILE.

Sangokushi v43

Onwards with volume 43. More deaths to come, sadly. The early 40s in this series are definitely quite heart-breaking for fans.

*VOLUME 43 NOW COMPLETE.

Sangokushi v42 (complete!)

Back from my longer-than-intended break and ready to really focus on Sangokushi for the rest of the year, to the detriment of my plans for other projects. Expect pretty much a chapter every day unless they're really long as in 50 pages or more, in which case, every other day.

*VOLUME 42 NOW COMPLETE!

Battle of Chaeronea (3)

This chapter actually came out in last month's issue of Afternoon, but I didn't realize that until like last week. Sorry, folks.

Also, CA is fucking incompetent for not having an orderly withdrawal button even after 15 years since the original Shogun Total war.

Some Thoughts on the Man and the Manga: Chinggis Khan

Happyscans and I finally bring you the last volume of Chinggis Khan, covering the brilliant, final two decades of his life. I meant to get this done by the end of December like I promised before, but what's life without a few bumps along the road? Now I know far more eloquent and well-learned people than me have already given their opinions on this controversial figure. Still, as a fan of history, there's no way I could pass up the opportunity to give my 2 cents on him, no matter how naive or poorly informed my ideas may be.

*Also, I'll be taking the rest of this month off to watch AGDQ2015 to be a more productive member to society.
