Hey guys, looks like the series has been re-licensed and is getting ebook releases direct from Kodansha. I personally won't work on any licensed series, so for now ONKWS is putting this on Hiatus / dropping it completely. 

 

bummer..

Thanks for the work while it was still in grey zones see you in other series!

I'm dying to see another chapter of this.

 

no you're not dying. you're just slowly decaying inside your cold, dead, heart.

hmm feb...this series could use an update

 

though we'd very much welcome the missing chapters of 12 and 13

thanks for the chapter
freakin lost it on that last page XD

It isn't really a "noncommittal sex=evil" mentality, more so that it is consistent characterization of Randel.  After being sold, Randel was mentally and severely altered.  Zero, as fucked as it is, is the only vestige he has of a past where he was not a killer.  Not wanting to alter his relationships with the people he knew there is pretty in character for him.  It really isn't fair to judge him for clinging to a nonexistent Eden after what he has been through.

 

Also, he is demonstrably dumb as a stump when it comes to social cues.

 

Also also, pretty sure prostimouto has already been deflowered by somebody else.  Otherwise, she totally doesn't suck at her job.

It's been stated she's more of a hostess and not a full blown prostimouto.

>not deflowering your prostimouto

This is such bullshit. For someone who grew up amongst prostitutes, he's far too sexually conservative. Fuck these mangaka and their "noncommittal sex=evil" mentality.

Apache helicopters have no family so its all good.

dang, that tank killer joke nearly flew over my head.

He just sees her as his little sister. Or are you telling me, you would fuck your sister?

Why you didn't agree with the deal?

Because you want to pay more.

 

Why you want to pay more?

Because you need to smack someone with a wadful of money.

 

All this only happen if you are filthy rich.

This.  I have always seen this to be taking place roughly between World War I and World War II.  The great war that ended just before this series begins being ~WWI.  There were major improvements to tanks, firearms and other military technology after that time. Strangely enough, machine guns and semi-automatic pistols entered wide spread military use before semi-automatic rifles.  That may be thanks to having John Browning in this world.  Here's a wikipedia entry in case you want to learn more.

All hail John Browning!! Our Overlord of Automatic Firearms!!

I love the dialogue in this series! Thanks ONKWS!

Some of that might be due to the thugs being somewhat incompetent especially in comparison to the other cases that were made up of either soldiers, trained guards, or mercenaries.  The bad guys in this case were either hired locally, in which case they would be the dregs assuming all of the competent ones would find high/relatively stable positions with the major factions, or they were sent in from outside, since the chances of them dying are high it is unlikely that better ones would be sent.

 

Yeah.  chapter 42 definitely has a different feel too it.  It might also be as a contrast to Randel's normal modus operandi which is kill everything that is a threat.

I'm going to guess that every other member of the 901-ATT squad were either KIA, or lost their minds to the Toten fetus and subsequently excuted... Thankfully it seems that Randell has avoided either fate, at least for now.

Even if there were some that lost their minds or died, I'd imagine as part of a "look in the mirror" chapter there'd be a scene where Mr. Friendly Giant meets others, the ones that went Toten and lived. Or, maybe as continued lab rats or Berserker shock troops sent to help other criminal branches, kind of like the flame thrower guy waaaaaaay back.

My impression was that:
