    The more of Ashikaga we see, the more I wonder how Lovecraft-ian this is going to get:

    So true. First time I laughed out loud with it. Worried Yorishige is a great mix of funny and creepy.

    I also thought the humor was great in this chapter. Re-reading this again, I just noticed that the new thief enemy's clothing has ants. Are they just a pattern or are they literally crawling on him? (So disgusting...)

    I think they are live ants. Bleh.

    The trio of pages where he realises they had been going easy on him in training made me laugh out loud, especially the middle one.

    Pretty sure that's not how Buddhism works:

    If nothing else, this series has a plethora of creepy, awful villains:

    It's definitely interesting, I like the fact that it isn't trying to play straight, so to speak. Just acknowledge that there will be some elements of mysticism or magic or whatever, keep it fairly subdued, and move on. Gives the villain's 'inhumanness' or whatever some interesting potential depth too.

    The villains in this really are super-sadists:

    And may I note that while he is wearing armor, he's not that well-covered.

    Hedonism is bad, folks:

    And this chapter addresses two things I always found so simple yet so profound. 1. Armor covers you, but it slows you down (as any RPGer knows), and 2. If a guy is using a weapon you can't get around, take down the weapon.

    Good chapter, decent action, not much more to say I guess.

    This is no fight between honorable samurai. Use low blows when you want:

    I'm a little confused on how the kid was fighting other than dashing around a lot.

    Hojo landed only one hit, when he evaded that one slash and used that Elusive Sword technique. After that Hojo let his enemy just bleed out, evading his attacks and not giving him a break to stop the bleeding

    Great fourth wall joke at the end, though.

    This was a funny chapter. They usually are when Yorishige is involved:

    Also, ascension? If this dude is trying for buddha-hood I don't think he's going the right way about it.

    Yeah, that guy's not Buddhist even if he thinks he is:

    I'm also noticing a subtle "Buddhism vs. Shintoism" thread here, at least in which Ashikaga and his cronies have all these Buddhist symbols, and Yorishige and Takayuki appear to be Shinto.
