Lol, yeah. If you think mathematically, each person has to take down 100 humans so its insane. Well, I wont say anything about it since you would or probably have started reading it already.

Im bad with actually history(Damn, I should have taken history), but do you know any real history battle where an army defeated an army which had a greater number of men>? I remember someone mentioning a real historical battle, but I totally forgot which battle it was lol.

Edit: Actually, the only one I know is the battle of Okehazama. Though the actual number Yoshimoto had wasnt clear, so, yeah...but definitely more than Oda army. Anyone else knows other battles with similar situation?

Just finished reading the battle last night, before going to bed.

Holy cripes. So. AWESOME. I was so full of adrenaline from reading it that going to bed was pretty difficult, at the least.

Nonoel claiming an MVP kill was the icing on top of the cake; despite the initial strategy's set-back, this was most definitely the fortuitous thing behind it, as it utterly demolished the enemy's morale to dust.

I took up western history as part of my electives, and on top of that, my teacher was an avid fan of military battles; unfortunately, my memory has chosen to forget all that he's taught (and raved about).

Of the top of my head, maybe Caesar vs Vercingetorix, Athena vs Persia, and Sparta vs Persia.

And there are more, maybe Rome against Boudicca. And I can think of a few more but I dont remember numbers.

And some of the battles of Alexander the Great should qualify too.

Volume 3 ends with a forecast for even a bigger battle waiting for Naga and the witches lol. I love how there's also something like a Witch-Hunt of the modern europe in the world of Naga.

Man, I really should have done history.... It seems interesting to study about Europe and the ancient Egypt/Rome.

Wow,nice. Im going to check them out now.

Yeah, they should be a nice read. I almost mistaken Athena, the olymipian goddess, with the Athena, the kingdom, lol.

Time for me to stalk several sites until reviews for volume 4 come out!

PS. So that's why the author came up with this series; he wanted to write a story with Nobunaga as the main lead, but didn't want to do it like everyone else had done. Him getting inspiration from Drifters was awesome.

On to volume 3!

I should probably start reading from volume 1 again to refresh my memory and to kill some time before volume 4 comes out. Well, I will just read them inside the train again, but it sure is going to be tough trying to make sure no one sees those illustrations...

Hopefully no one manages to sneak a peek just when you're on a page with illustrations. It's going to be very difficult trying to explain yourself...

The cover itself is eye-catching, so I need to put some cover over it...

I always make sure to leave the cover of whatever LN I'm reading in public inside my bag, 'cause it always tends to draw people 's attention for some reason. I've even had some people approach me going "hey what manga is that?" back then whenever I'd read with the cover on, which was just amusing.

Lol. I know that feeling. Especially if the illustrations tend to be pornographic......like this series.

This is the only LN that I'm not willing to risk reading outside in public, because of those illustrations. Maybe when I'm backed into a corner and no one else can sneak a peak, maybe then.

So if I understood this correctly, politics and governance are soon going to play a pivotal role beyond volume 3. I'm looking forward to seeing the witches handle domestic affairs, particularly trade, their citizens, taxes and such, all the while managing diplomacy as well (as they are trying to build a country where humans and witches can ideally coexist after all, and I doubt the other human kingdoms would just sit idly by and twiddle their thumbs all the time). It's going to be interesting, looking forward to certain agricultural or economical elements at play.

I'm also curious as to how the other witches, who are most likely still lurking in the dark forest, would take to Naga and company's actions. Or how the church would handle the growing threat to their authority, posed by Naga and company. Especially since the church and their douchebags' ulterior goals are very much economical and agricultural in nature.

As you mentioned earlier, nom@n, this series has early European historical roots at the very nature of its story, and I love it. It's kind of like East meets West during their respective times of feudalism, and seeing how they get to influence each other over the course of the story. At the least, this series also has some of the elements that made me love Maoyuu so much: the economics, agriculture and politics. And that's not even getting into the really meaty part of the story: the tactical battles that have a natural flow to them!

Really exciting stuff!

I just reread v1 to v3 to refresh my memory. Oh, and you can read the first prologue chapter that is available on the official MF bunko site.

Yeah, I also love how they are using the same moral that Europe had towards witches(the innocent women) in the past.

Though it seems like the enemies Naga and the witches will be facing in v4 will be a big threat.

In terms of economics, the witches will be totally new to this system. They were living in a forest like amazons after all. So they would need a trutworthy and talented human to become their allies. But luckily, it seems the Black Forest is rich in resources so they should be able to pull it off somehow....I hope....

Truthfully, I'm more reminded of the Crusades period, since the next enemies that Naga and the witches will be facing are reminiscent of the militaristic holy knights during that period.

And yeah, that's part of what has me anticipating the next set of volumes. I'm eager to see how the witches will grow into positions of economical and political importance in order to establish their country of coexistence, considering their newcomer status. That, and how Naga will unify the several witch clans under him, considering that they all have their various personal ambitions which might end up straining their alliance.

I'm also eagerly looking forward as to whether or not Naga's winning streak will continue unchallenged. Having a brilliant commander such as Nagi is nice and all, but conflict is the spice of life, and a lead who always wins can get boring fast.

That said, I wonder how Maisaka sensei will adapt Nobunaga's disastrous loss in that one campaign into this series?

Oh yeah. Did you realise how the author stopped writing the description of the witches pubic hair after volume 1?
Seems like the jokes and discussion on 2chan worked.

2ch working like a force of nature. If I recall, wasn't it 2ch's fault that Madan 6 had no illusts?

Yeah, I was wondering about that as well. For what it's worth, I found it hilarious. And considering that 夜姫 was written after Naga v3...I guess there's not going to be any pubic hairs to be found in that one!

Yeah. I will be honest. I was one of the guys in 2chan who was bitching about the guy who draws for the manga adaptation. Likewise for the pubic hair for this series.

Seriously. The LN authors actually comes to 2chan to read what people has to say regarding their series. Even the flaws in DxD which many of us were bitching about was answered and cleared when the next volume came out(There was like dozen flaws in DxD since the author kept on changing the setting all the time). You should try the same for LN you read lol.

Yeah, I doubt he will be doing pubic hair anymore. Seriously, he goes to too much detail about it. If DxD gets too detailed about breasts, Naga gets too detailed about pubic hair lol.
I couldnt stop laughing when I first read volume 1 and how it was explained that "Witch A has a hairy bush" and "Witch B has lighter tone of bush". I wonder what middle school student thought when they read it lol.

What I found from volume 1 description is that Harigan is quite hairly lol.
