Samurai Usagi chapter 25
So there isn't much I can say in regards to the lateness of this chapter that you haven't heard already...things like 'I've been busy job searching' and 'our typesetter has been busy job searching', 'I fail at staying on-schedule when it comes to personal projects' and 'why is it that summer is the busiest time of year when people should logically have more time in a day to do things?'
Well, that last one wasn't so much of an explanation as it was a question, but...I think I've made my point. But I'm going to try harder next time! I'll... I'll PUT MY FOOT DOWN and make sure everyone including myself does their work at a reasonable speed!! .....that's what I will try to do.
So here's the download link!
I gotta tell ya, while I was reading through this chapter I found myself thinking, damn it, these samurai are all bastards!! It seemed like a fresh revelation at the time, but after a while I realized that this was something that had been established at the very beginning of this manga. I was then amazed at how Teppei has managed to reiterate this notion over and over again without it ever getting dull, because he tells it from the viewpoint of a vast number of characters, each with their own personal outlook on the situation. It provides us readers with a large variety of opinions and ultimately makes for a very interesting story overall despite the simple base of 'a young samurai works hard to make his wife happy'.
And I think that's why I love this manga so much. So simple, but jam-packed with the emotions of all these characters and its a wonder if you don't get teary-eyed at the end of each arc- or each chapter! I know I do. Anyone who knows me knows how I love stories with a good emotional punch to them! So let's go everyone, on to volume four of Samurai Usagi! we're reaching the half-way point!! (but first, the chapter extras and vol. 3 omake...)
