Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai. In the second half of Hokashi, Usagi and co. have encountered a band of assassins on their way to Kitanoji temple. It's time for confrontation, sad goodbyes, and all the goodies at the end of the book!Previous threads:>>106773099 >>106816555 >>106832888 >>106866053 >>106888635 >>106973809
>>106999285>You passed beyond our expectationsIt was Katsuichi who caught the blade though. Usagi has 3 milliseconds from having a hole in his head
>>106999707like, every twelve issues, they acknowledge the fact that they are funny animal people and those are my favorite moments.
>>107000391Onto saga Volume 5
>>107000546The potential Kirishitan count is at 6.The confirmed is currently at one
>>106999434This might be my favorite page in the series, something about how the assassin can be so fast and skilled, but beaten so fast just because he didn’t think to go for the wakazashi first. Their skills are so close yet he is still leagues below Usagi
>>106999707OH GOD IM CRYING OVER A STORY OF ILLEGITIMATE FATHERS AND SONS LIKE THE FIST OF THE NORTH STAR!
>>107000741>Dirty Gaijins pigus
>>107000901confirmed count is up to 3.What is the ultimate plan for that, though? Where does it go from here? Perhaps it's wrapped up until a meeting is called and it adorns their space.
>>107000952When's Usagi set? Because depending on when it is we might be seeing some Shimabara and Amakusa Shiro action.
>>107001040>>107001036Tokogawa took power in 1603. He's been ruling for a few years, but not too long
>>107001136>>107001036And he abdicated in 1605, which was part of a story. So we're somewhere around that year.
>>107001069So too early for Shimabara.
>>107001269Thanks for reading.
>>106999539Really, a lot of Jotaro's predicaments could have been over easily if he could run faster.
>>107001288ISHIDA IS THE LAW
>>106999707Will they ever just tell each other?
>>107002363That would seem like a good final issue.
>>107002363In sensho. Just as he dies.
>>107000952Good, the power of salvation and god will save them all, but seriously considering all the Japanese mythology exists in Usagi it’s not crazy to say the biblical Judeo-Christian god is real here, be cool if we get the power of Christ vs Jei or some cool confirmation of biblically accurate angels showing up
>>107002405Eh that’s just a hypothetical ending that’s not even real in the book itself
>>107001010>He's being charitable to the downtrodden and unfortunate>Let's beat him until he vomits blood!
>tfw you're an NPC in the Usagi universe
>>107001288I'm having trouble trying to figure out if this motherfucker is Batman or Robin Hood.I mean, he steals from the rich and gives to the poor, but he very clearly has a no-kill rule, dresses in all-black, and disappears whenever someone's back is turned.
>>107003441Goemon Ishikawa. Dumbass.
>>107003494Dog I don't know shit about Japanese folklore/history. Interesting dude from what I just found out about him though.
>>107003441He is Nii-san probably
>>107003064>The best place for sushi in that town is the where the kirishitans meet
>>107002428I guess this would be a spoiler
>>106999707Fuck you Mariko.
>>107006232It's a specific personality trait people can have where they will intentionally manipulate other people into dramatic confrontations while also pretending to be the victim. It gives them a sense of power and moral righteousness.
>>107002916Rules is rules
>>107003733I'm actually starting to doubt that. Take a look at the respective heights. I don't have any better suspicions though.

>>107006126Ho shit, that is really cool though. Did you draw that?
>>107006882Yeah, I have no real evidence either aside from Nii mentioning he is from an impoverished family.
>>106999462The drawing of the catch and return here is incredible. So dynamic.
>>107006959nah I just photoshoped it
>>107007183It's all in the reflexes
>>107006996>his hopes and dreams ruined in the next 10+ Ishida adventures
>>107000718For once, he tries not to meddle, and look where it gets him.
>>107006926The original was much better – and by the way, it was posted like a week ago. We all saw it.
>>107002428>Turns out the gods jei is following is actually the christian god and saints>The evil that jei sniffs is not random like it seems, but they're all heathens and infidels and jei only spares the kirishtani.what a tweest, worthy of a jrpg.
>>107002428I'm not sure if Sanshobo and Sasuké would be grateful for the help or pissed off because Yahweh is stepping on their turf.
>>106999707Right in the feels.
>>107006926>HUUUUUUR DUUUUUUUUUUR CUUUUUUUUCKGo fuck off you retard
>>107006126>his jutte handle on the cross
>>107006996I like how Nii is an ass to lower class but as nezumi he is robin hood.
>>107000952>What is the ultimate plan for that, though? Where does it go from here? Perhaps it's wrapped up until a meeting is called and it adorns their space.It's probably hollow and full of tuberculosis-tainted opium.
>>107006926I think its a karma with that guy. He's been a jerk all his life and that bad karma accrued.
>>107011068Fuck off yourself, he is using the word cuckold in its proper place.
>>107011153>this jitte- I mean Cross, gives me the authority of Our Lord shog- Jesus Christ
>>107011212Right? It would be pure pottery.
>>107011465The respitory virus gives it extra flavor!Really though, kristain is all about equality, generosity, and love. So you can imagine how that goes over in a civilization under military rule with a class structure so unfair that they can get away with literal murder.
>>107011977But what about Honour? Pretty shitty religion that doesn't encourage you to die for honour.Come to think if it, Islam would have probably spread like wildfire there.
>>107010183Probably pissed, there gods right? The pantheons rarely get along anyways and many of them barely tolerate each other
>>107012271>>107010183Sasukue regularly deals with the supernatural and mystic, he'd probably see any other mythology stepping in as just another wandering spirit and act accordingly.
>>107012217the poor peasants don't care much about honor. The romans were all about martial honor and such, but Christianity spread like fire there, especially among the lower classesand if you think about it, between helping out the poor and samurai honor, usagi would chose to help out
>>107012321Well that depends on how power levels are portrayed it seems like the kami and Japanese gods are about as powerful as the myths say but considering how op the Christian figures aren’t be interesting to see how there portrayed, but I just want Jei getting dragged to hell by the power of Christ
>>106999691Mariko a bitch, A BITCH!
