Joe's Slump

Sorry for some delays but v11 is finally complete at last! Even though there might not have been all that much boxing this volume, it was by no means a boring volume. I really hope you'll enjoy Joe's slump and return as much as me, my typesetter Arles, and Happyscans did. That's it for now. Look forward to v12 chapters coming soon.

Decisive Battle Along the Wei River

And v32 is finally complete! I hope you enjoyed the conclusion to Ma Chao's conflict with Cao Cao. If you're a fan of Ma Chao (like me), look forward to him making another grand entrance in just a few volumes. Now as entertaining as Jia Xu's scheme was, I'd still nominate Zhang Song for the most memorable moment award in this volume with his TACTFUL DIPLOMATIC SKILLS.
One other thing I wanted to point out was that this line on p166, "One was not human if not of Cao Cao's faction," which is not a part of the original novel's narration. For those of you familiar with the Genpei War or Tales of the Heike, you'll realize that it's a clear-cut reference to Taira no Kiyomori's famous quote, "One was not human if not a Taira (平家にあらずんば人にあらず)." So it's yet another example of how Japanese cultural elements still manage to peep out from this particular adaptation of a Chinese classic.
