It seemed a little inconsistent to me that in the past Alus has had superhuman mana control, including being able to turn a piece of paper into a weapon, but for this test he was unable to control his attack without his chain sword. Oh well, it probably made sense to the author and might to me if I put enough effort into pondering it. I'm too lazy for that.
On the bright side, Alus reflecting on his "soft" behavior while speaking with Loki was nicely done.
I decided to try this on catchup and now I'm all caught up! I was surprised at how good it is. It's easily one of my favorites here now.
"There are few things differentiating them between free men, but there are some restrictions they need to abide by."
--change "between" to "and"
"Serfs had little entertainment in their lives, but it appeared their oversees occasionally handed out liquor as a treat."
Aishia has said many times, that (Rio and Aishia) will be always together, so you guys should not worry about her, she just appeared in Rio's life and they already have a very close relationship, I am sure that Rio can not and does not want to live without her.
And Yurika just manage to make things worse(?), as I would expected from her...
Also, one thing I have to give it to Takehaya is that, he always manage to bring many trivia in past volumes and expand it. The "Kabutonga dies at dawn" chapter actually exist, even 10 years ago. It's the chapter Kii watched when met with Koutarou back then. To think it would come back like this... Nice move, Takehaya.
@galactuskahn24 I think others in the thread have the gist of it - nobody knew what an "Online Supermarket" meant and none of the other summoned heroes seemed impressed by it. If this were Realist Hero, maybe somebody would have thought to run some experiments, but summoning otherworld juggernauts to send off to battle is apparently the conventional wisdom for this kingdom. That's low-hanging fruit - who would think about the possibilities of economic warfare through access to unlimited "rare" resources like salt?
@eternal-wanderer having slightly spoiled myself on some bonus illustrations (though very tiny and not very detailed pictures) i think its just a bonus story to go with the bonus illustration for the volume, much like the
for vol 4.
and i look forward to the future bonus color illustrations and any bonus story that may allude to them.
there's also a hit to the head from that piece rider deprived merry-go-round.......
any the mind reading bit given there where not a lot details given by Izuzu, one time use and didn't recall anything else. One can infer the first use per person is free, but it needs to be used some number times to trigger full use of the ability, with some minor caveats............
@shrike_al It would be strange for veterans to chose to say nothing, from what we know a number of people are looking for clue on the amnesia thing and people like Lala & Nono or information dealer like Anonymous wouldn't let that kind of information go unoticed.
Also Renji doesn’t imediatly chose his team Sassa ask him, he beat Ron before chosing him and Chibi is too young to have allready gather experience then lose her memory again.
But more importantly Renji seems too "common" to need that kind of explaination: he is just a guy who likely used to fight, is fit, and a talented volunteer soldier overall but not much different from the Tokkis or Rock and at the begin he was easly handle by Brit.
If someone were to get that traitement (which seems unlike to me) it would be Soma who is trully special as the most powerfull volunteer soldier despite is relatively young age.
