@flannan IMO it's the culture. indonesia never really had that "running around with armor and sword" culture; those overpatriotic numbskulls insists that we fought the dutch and japanese with nothing but sharp bamboo sticks and sheer bravery. so most ppl wouldn't really think of picking up a sword, a set of armor, and go bash other ppl with a sword and armor beyond video games like Mordhau and Skyrim lol

@Wolvenworks - I think it's about climate. Russia isn't that wealthy either, but there seems to be a healthy community of armored people here. At first, equipment was somewhat post-apocalyptic, but it got better over time.

@tonie - Teutons sure did not gain much popularity by crusading against Christian countries (including mine).

As the old sayin' goes: good teuton is dead teuton.
(Btw they weren't so 'k-kill me' when they lost a fight they were running away faster than they ever did)

@Oured well the extra pages basically said that. But he made a good point about western armor IMO. If i were to use that in jakarta without being in a very cold room i think I’d get a heatstroke. Perhaps that’s why HEMA never really kicked off in indonesia? (Because it’s so fucking hot and humid 24/7 in jakarta)

Overall accurate on the historical aspect, save for the leather armor bit. Nords who went Viking wore maille.
The author most likely participates in HEMA events.

based author. but yeah, perhaps the overwhelming heat and humidity is why HEMA never really picked up in indonesia, if we're talking about other factors beside cost and facility (and the plethora of other reasons why a third world country can't have it. look, the list goes on, but if we're doing HEMA, it would be either in Bandung where it's cooler, or in a big room with the AC going full nordic cold)

In his other manga, he always put some medieval trivia knowledge on the last pages. I assume that guy is just a big history/medieval nerd.

@BCS
Because it looks fancy.
Okay, serious, these crests are a heraldic display to identify the guy (or in this case gal) under the helmet.

It's all well and good(especially page 13) but why the hell does the Teutonic knight have these gigantic helmet wings?
