Dumping a few chapters of Sangokushi whenever I have time now that it's completely translated.
Recap of story so far: After becoming the new chancellor, Cao Cao schemes to eliminate potential threats to him. His first aim is to turn Lu Bu against Liu Bei.
For those who don't know what this is, it's a faithful adaptation of Romance of the Three Kingdoms by Yokoyama Mitsuteru, the mangaka of Tetsujin 28, Giant Robo, Mars, etc. The art isn't amazing but if you've ever wanted to get into Three Kingdoms but didn't feel like slogging through book, reading this is the easiest way. The 2010 Chinese TV series was alright too, but that skips out on some fun arcs.

Same dude that dumps these every so often?
I appreciate you doing this. Sangokushi is one of those classic series that doesn't really have a lot of readers outside of japs.
Love the art too, Always liked the more classical,simple Manga art
Yeah, I'm also the dude that translated it. I'm a big fan of the art style too, but I do admit it probably holds little appeal to many modern readers.
Hey, Big props to you for scanning it. read a few volumes and dropped it since it was long but I definitely am going to pick this up soon.
Very gracious for people like you who go back and pick up manga like these, Wish more scanalators did rather than scanning the latest big release.
Would love for a Golgo 13 scan project
You had ONE JOB.
I've only translated Japanese manga. I know only 3 languages, really.
I think this experience did teach him a thing or two though. In later battles, we see a Zhang Fei who's quite a bit more cautious than how he was portrayed earlier on in the story. He even goes so far as to use his reputation for being a wild drunk to fool the enemy completely.
In the novel, Cao Bao is Lu Bu's father in law. It's not really the reason Zhang Fei wanted to kill him though. I think it's more the case of Zhang Fei being drunk off his ass, and then wanting to kill him because he thinks Cao Bao betrayed Xuchang's rightful lord (Liu Bei).
Because that'd be animal abuse.
Speaking seriously though, it would be interesting to know just how often horses were targeted. Although I'd naturally assume that soldiers did target them considering these battles are matters of life and death, I wonder if the scarcity of good horses in China ever made any officers caution their soldiers to avoid killing horses if possible. Seems like a long-shot, but who knows?
Fuck, I just realized my volume 10 link is missing page 107.
Here's the missing page 107 that should come after here.
And bros b4 babies.
And that's the end of the dump for today.
