    I don't know how much longer I'll follow this having seen the raws.
    Spoiler:
    A lot of sex and violence for the sake of sex and violence, and without dialogue I can understand I honestly can't tell some of the characters apart by the last few chapters. Maybe my view will change once I clearly understand what's going on, but I have my doubts.

    Anything is hard to understand when you don' know what characters are saying in the moment. Until MS catch up I'll just interpret what is happening

    Just stumbled upon the manga, looked good at first. Two new chapters out at MS.

    But having a Mammoth kill an entire clan (and actually hunting them). Ehh. Ah well, suspending disbelief here.

    How far along are the raws?

    Seems to be more about extreme presentations of sex and violence for shock value. I'm continuing to read to find some answers for what I've seen in the raws, but I think the father should have been the protagonist of this story as he was far more engaging than his son thus far.

    Well, there's at least the sex...:maybe

    But it'd be disappointing if that's all there is to this manga.

    Totally agree. The character designs and style are gorgeous, but I need more plot than a kid with a cursed birth, orgies and gory death. I'm most curious as to why the friend with the solar eye tattoo is still kid size (and is in such 'demand' with the ladies :blink).

    It'd be even more idiotic since the manga has an actual writer and is apparently based on a novel? (correct me if I'm wrong here, just read what it said there).

    Have no idea who you're talking about, I'm only following the scans. Where are the raws at?

    Wonder how long they're going to stick around in this clan. If they're high up I guess the mammoths won't reach there, but they might just look for other clans or build up another clan with remnants from the Grashros attacks.

    That "I've-told-you-so" guy was funny as fuck though :lmao

    Things get weirder and weirder from this chapter on. You'll see. The story really dissolves imo.

    I think I'll take a look, thanks!

    Spoiler:
    Breezed through the raws, it isn't as bad as I thought it'd be. But then again, I'm used to Gantz etc., so maybe that's why this is no biggie, at least for me.

    Didn't quite get what was happening everywhere, but apparently Akuu just ran away after hurting the chick. And that was her he saved from the raping later too, right?
    And damn, he's a berserker. Apparently you don't need a mammoth to kill a whole clan :maybe
    Poor Rhino, getting killed by Big Foot. Who had killed a mammoth (the cub?) and then got killed by our crazy Cro Magnon people.

    And what the hell was up with the ninja chick? Didn't know they had panties back then too :lmao

    Anyway, this guy should be doing doujins, his art is awesome :drool

    One last thing: what the hell was with that scene in 2018? :lmao


    All in all, I also think the boy's father would have been the more interesting protagonist.

    I'm only reading mangastream's releases. But man, this series is quickly losing my interest. It was all fine up until they join this clan of youngsters. Now it just feels like a weird parody of... I don't even know what. It's hard to take the idiots in this clan seriously, and as a consequence all the sex and violence happening just doesn't have the impact it thinks it does. Just feels gratuitous and dumb at this point. The way characters behave feels out of place for the time period (specifically the 'romance' between akuu and the girl). And there's no sense that it's going anywhere interesting either.

    It feels like this shit is just made up as it goes along, and the writer had no clue where to go with the story after they killed Akuu's clan and parents.

    I'll stick around for a few more chapters I guess.

    Lots of gratuitous sex and violence, much of it leading nowhere as the story 'progresses'. I'm quite disappointed because the artistic style is very nice, but the story simply dissolves into graphic violence and mindless sex.

    This story should have been about Akuu and his father (who was a far more engaging character) proving the prophecy about Akuu wrong through word and deed.

    Yeeaahhh, this story looked REALLY promising at the beginning, but it's slipping. Seems to be falling back onto the Attack On Titan tropes to build "tension" and make things "interesting" by just tossing shock value at you.

    The problem with killing off a bunch of people all at once is you don't give us time to grow attached to them. There's no point to it.

    Not sure if I buy his sudden amazing anime fighting skills and 'gaze of a hunter', when we've only seen him fail at hunting over and over so far.

    Maybe there's some plot twist coming that this is some virtual reality or time travel thing. Or Akuu has a telepathic brain link with a modern day shounen manga fanboy who is also a martial arts prodigy?

    :hmm

    The curse is probably the reasoning, but more importantly:

    HE IS THE ANCESTOR! The ancestor of all shounen protagonists!
    The first of his kind, the original he combines all that is shounen.
    see how easily he calls out attack names, how he gets stronger with rage and when protecting. All others spring from him across the universe and the 4th wall :iria

    Lol! I didn't even notice the DB reference!

    Akuu may not have had the skills to hunt larger game, but he was shown early on catching rabbits.

    If you think the story is wonky now, just wait--you ain't seen nothing yet! :psyduck
