No, they called them Franks. A good chunk of the troops and leaders of the First Crusade were French, and this was back when the Frankish kingdoms were in the later stages of their transitions into France, Germany and the Low Countries. So Frank became a catch-all word in the Levant not just for the crusaders but for any western European among the locals the crusaders ruled over, Jews and Christians as well as Muslims.

"Who are we sacrificing? the winner or the loser?"
Pretty sure this is a reference to the fact that aztecs had a ritual sport in which they sacrificed the winners.

The 2nd and final volume was planned for release this February from what I've heard.
The series ended with the magazine it ran on, on that September issue, ending in 18 episodes as planned.

@welcome2atlantis Dude if your in Japan there is free wifi everywhere. For example, there is free wifi at the train station. "20 minute walk to the train station" it says, but I bet you could get a signal way closer than that.

Huh, a look at Mangaupdates indicates that this is done in one volume, but i am not sure that is the case. The cover has the "jou" symbol which usually indicates either 2 or 3 planned volumes and the magazine it runs in (which releases quarterly in March, June, September and December) was still running it in the September 2019 issue.

A couple findings that I felt I wanted to mention:
page 8 margin has "Christians" spelled as "Chirstians"
page 14 right 4-koma second panel textbox ends mid-sentence. Should probably end with "preference" or "deference" or something?

From what I remember (from longago learnings) "Assassins creed" games are pretty close to fact in one (very small) way. Since the Assassin sect was very much about what we'd call terrorism, they made their murders as blatantly visible as possible (outside the mosque after the friday prayers was a preference). Even if they'd be very likely to be caught and/or killed afterwards. (This suicidal tendency is supposedly another reason why people would assume they had to be drugged to be so crayzee)
Anyway, such methods were used rather than the sneaky killing that people today would usually want to associate with the word assassin.

@skilodracus The author is a self admitted raging history otaku; he's doing this more for the little historical details than for the cute girls. 😅

I love how the author actually does their research and doesn't use stereotypes. Though I'm pretty sure the sect assassin's came from mainly targeted other Muslim sects and had an informal deal with the crusaders; kind of an enemy of my enemy situation. Not that they got along though.
