I like the story, it is interesting, but why the hell the chapters are so short, even it is a monthly manga?

At least make the chapters close to 30 pages and make it equal to biweekly manga

Blame that on the Author himself.
It's a well known fact that Kouta Hirano is a very lazy artist who does his manga on his own time. In fact it took him 11 years for him to finish Hellsing in 10 Volumes when other artists have done that same number in least than 4 years or shorter even if they were weekly, monthly or bi-monthly! At least the author of Berserk had a good reason for being late as he was putting a lot of extra details in his drawings.

Chapter 5 was very cool.
It's been a while since I've gotten excited about a manga like this.

Just to note. The scanlation refers to Yoichi as female, but a text translation here refers to him as male. I don't know which is correct.

Chapter 8 came out, but nothing interesting happened. Just wondering how Nobunaga is going to lead his new elf army without a way to communicate with them.

Actually I found it rather funny with how Hirano portrayed the two. Though is it just me or...

Did everyone miss the La Pucelle reference? I wonder how Jeanne looks like under Hirano's pen?

It seems that the drifters, people who we know in various histories from different parts of the world (Sengoku Japan, Ancient Rome, Wild West part of America, Vietnam War), are being summoned by someone for a task. Only thing is we don't know.

PS...

Spoiler for New drifters chapter 9:

The flags at the end of chapter 8 are interesting.

"La Pucelle de Orleans" which is Jean de Arc. (as yezhanquan said)
We have Makoto (誠) - But I can't find any feudal Japanese lords/clans with that exact Kanji
The third from the top is quite possibly the Two Headed Eagle.
The last one....I can't remember it's name, but I'm 99% sure it's European.

The last final flag is the Fleur-de-lis so I'm guessing they're another army of France since it's typically most associated with the French monarchy. As for the Makoto symbol, the only ones who I know of that used the kanji were the Shinsengumi.

I'm betting on Charlesmagne, it would be delicious irony.

Chapter 9's so rad...

You get dragons serving as helicopters to rappel troops...

Hijikita looking like Walter (IMO of course)

And the best part...

Spoiler for Stuff:


Too bad chapter 10's out by the 30th to see who else reinforces the castle.

Hmm "My Boyfriend is a Pilot"

Amusing chapter title.

And apparently he was a WWII Ace pilot.

First google search brings up

No machine gun action from the plane either.

But I'll wait and see. I laughed a bit at Anastasia and feared JOA.
