Morimoto Shuu--Jinjuu Houretsuden V04 [3.5]

Morimoto Shuu: Jinjuu Houretsuden V04

Did Tuo Ren seriously catch a falling boulder to keep it from landing on Li Fang? That’s just crazy! He was straining a bit, but honestly, between gravity, momentum, and coordination, the odds were really stacked against success. I like Li Fang. In the beginning he was a bit too cheerful for my taste, but […]

Karakara Kemuri: Donten ni Warau V04

I want to say I knew it, but I didn’t–I just wanted it to be so very, very, very, badly.

Morimoto Shuu: Jinjuu Houretsuden V03

Now it’s getting into the origins of the rebellion and prophecy.

Morimoto Shuu: Jinjuu Houretsuden V02

This volume reveals just a bit more about their powers. Nothing definitive, in my opinion, but it has brought a few things to mind. I was right about Li Fang’s inherited power! Although it isn’t precisely what I was thinking, but it’s close enough. Then there’s Na Sha, whose incantation invokes her mastery over cloth. […]
