    It's got an interesting premise and often provides excuses for the author to talk about history, culture, or survival tips. Given my personal interests, I don't mind it at all. Still early in but I've found it worth following for the plot and likable, if not entirely original, characters.

    You see, this is why you don't show mercy to villains, because they wind up fucking you over later.

    Somehow I get the feeling that whatever the grandmother said will be revealed later, unless someone can translate that now.

    This guy is frigging hardcore. In fact, a bunch of these characters are hardcore as it gets. It's like the most awesome people in Japan were gathering in one out-of-the-way location.

    Oh shit, there's a lot more gold than we thought and it seems quite likely that the players are going to converge soon enough. Who doesn't want to see the other groups duke it out with one another to see who's the real top dog?

    I was admittedly kind of worried about him. He's clearly the comic relief with abilities best used for non-combat related purposed, and more than a little willing to run away from a fight, meaning that he offers a different sort of humor than what we have from the two leads. In other words, he is expendable when it comes time to show how serious a threat is and to reduce any opportunities for comic relief once the going gets tough.

    That aside, it's not everyday where you see a guy trip and judo flip a horse while the author leaves notes about historical details.
