I wonder when Yoshitsune will appear again.

Because falling from a high place while laughing has never been a definite death in fiction from the start of everything.

Naruze looked around and found Neshinbara.
“Come here a moment. I have something important to discuss with you. Yes, stand next to me like that.”
She wrapped an arm around Neshinbara’s neck, pulled him close, and opened a sign frame.
“Say cheese. Aaaaand sent to Shakespeare. …Oh, you can go now. I need to put on some perfume to cover up the nerd-stench on my arm.”

I freakin' love Naruze.

The Logismoi Oplo’s strike had been completely eliminated.
Horizon had lost her attack power.
As the wind blew around her, she looked down at the gunblade in her hand.
She finally faced forward, but everything aboard the slowed Azuchi remained entirely unscathed. She frowned and tilted her head.
“…???”
“Don’t look down the barrel!!”

“I see.” Horizon nodded and looked at the gunblade in her own hands. “This truly is a useless weapon. And after it was introduced with such fanfare.”
“M-Master Muneshige! Why did you fall to your knees!? A-are you okay!?”

Haha, glad this gag returned.

My favourite Eroge artist seems to like this series a lot.

Is it that good?

Why not?

Yes it is.

The anime can be a little confusing though, and sometimes the series overall it requires a bit of external knowledge to fully grasp some stuff.

@Stark_Naked
Are there any reasons for those ridiculous designs? Seems more like a hentai work than something with deep and meaningful plot.

Raving_Cute

And also, there are normal designs too, I would say that only Neitomama is beyond the point of ridiculous.

@TurtleCat
Anime is fun, but probally better start reading OnC (wich probably will fully translated when you finish)
After OnC easier to undestand Horizon

eGremlin

@TurtleCat
Go ahead, most of us started that way.

First couple of episodes can be quite hard to fully understand on the first watch so might need to pay extra attention.

@TurtleCat
There are lots of ways to start. You can start from the anime, from the novels, from Owari no Chronicle...

The anime is what drew most of us in these threads, but also it can be a bit confusing due to how detailed the source material can be sometimes and the limited time they have to cram it there. I would say that the anime is pretty good at getting the same feel than the original and showing correctly Kawakami's world into a visual medium, but also cuts a lots of stuff (both minor and important) along the way to make it work.

The novels have the advantage that they are the source material. The first couple of volumes have a subpar translation sometimes, but once the chapters translated by js06 start that is not an issue anymore. Also, his godspeed translating gives us daily whole chapters to read and discuss.

And Owari no Chronicle is the previous series from the author, set in the same universe but in 2005 instead of the distant future like Horizon. It could be good to start from here too because OnC sets some of the universe workings that appear in Horizon and the story is far more simpler, while the characters are still as crazy as in Horizon. They are still different series though.

If you have doubts, you can also ask here and we will try to answer your questions.

We are friendly because we got fed up of trolling and also set the rule that all Horizons are best Horizons to avoid best girl wars and shitposting (and even so, sometimes it shows up again like some sort of undead creature).

@cum2soon
Yoshitsune thought she heard someone calling her name, but she was already preparing to fight.
She felt a power straight ahead in the darkness surrounding her. She sensed something approaching, so…
“There, Benkei! That’s it! That’s the enemy that crushed K.P.A. Italia…that crushed Itsukushima!”
She gave a smile of anticipation.
“Go! Benkei Throat Thrust!”
“Throat! ! Thrust!”
Benkei stomped forward with a rumbling roar and threw the strike.
As the tremor roared through the sky, something could be heard breaking.
Benkei’s outstretched arm was split into a top and bottom half, gravity barrier knuckle guard and all.
“!?”
…What!?
Benkei had been the one to attack, but something had torn into his arm even more quickly and powerfully.
Just as Yoshitsune wondered what it was, Benkei was sent flying backwards by an impact across his entire body.

…Well, this is simple!
Yoshitsune felt a tremor assault her body from the enemy’s attack. Benkei’s defense system had protected her as his master, protected Shizuka, and even cast defense spells on himself.
“…!”
But Yoshitsune was still sent flying through the air with Shizuka’s broken pieces.
Everything on top of Benkei’s giant shoulder was knocked into the sky.
She was falling, but she managed to open a sign frame with a trembling hand even as the dark clouds swallowed her up.
Also, Benkei’s giant form appeared before her. He intended to protect her from the enemy, but…
“…! …! …!”
The giant armored doll’s body suddenly exploded.
He had been destroyed.
Benkei broke apart and even the fragments came apart in midair as if being devoured.
“Ha ha!”
Yoshitsune laughed as she fell into the darkness.
“It’s been far too long since this world of mine was so interesting!!”

The reactor took out Edo, where Musashi was flying too. They were fighting at the boarder where her giant robot exploded.

Also, dragon reactor's effectiveness in killing main characters is now in question. the pope and Galileo survived after all

The suicide train is going to start really soon. Are you prepared to say goodbye to one of the best stories ever made?

Do you guys think it's worth buying the Hexennacht tanks?

@Illusionz
It`s not really expensive anyway. You can bundle it with something else to save on shipping.

MPmaster

@Illusionz
Hexennacht is pretty interesting so far.
It's not on the level of Horizon or OnC, but its setting is leaving a lot of room for improvements and the Kawakami will surely deliver.
Also, it's cheap. Just buy it if you want to support the author.

3C is the end of the "Introduction arcs" to call them in some way, so Kawakami probably wanted to make it one hell of an end.

Remember how the same happened at the end of 1A, he probably wanted to get that kind of feeling again.

“Is that Hashiba and the Ten Spears?”
They were a mix of genders and not all were human, but their most noticeable feature was how young they all were. They already had skilled leaders, so these roles may have been filled roles with promising younger individuals.

So at this point he had not yet defined that all of them are girls (minus one)?

Well, all of his series have someone being scolded all the time.
Koutarou, Ooshiro, etc.

I believe if he made something like that, it wouldn't be that funny anymore.

Hexennacht is kind of disappointing in that sense so far. It doesn't feel like it has as many Kawakami-tropes as his previous series.

Inmate

@haveahappyday
I guess that's what we get when he tries to write a normal sized volume.
All the fighting and the setting establishment in the volume so far didn't really leave much for it.
I remember only Manko and the Koutarou.
Maybe there will be more in the second volume, or in the untranslated chapters.

How deep will the Koutarou bullying go? Tenzou/Hiba where they maintain an air of relevance or usefulness, or Ooshiro levels of almost strictly relevance through bullying?
