    They do explore the ethics if different whaling methods in volume 8. Dragons are also different to whales in that they kill a lot of people.
    You can't really deny the romanticization of whaling (draking) in this manga. I wish they explored the ethics of draking or even the danger of it but nope.
    @samazam FMA is a critique of war. This manga is romanticizing harpoon hunting from boats and bemoaning that the industry of harpoon hunting from boats is dying out.
    That is not a good comparison.
    Also! I did not say this manga is bad and nobody is allowed to read it, I said I didn't like it.
    It is fully within my rights to not like and not want to read something bc it reminds me too much of something I dislike.
    @Junpaku thats like saying Fullmetal Alchemist is bad because it has allusion to Nazi Germany and war propaganda.
    mmmm I would like this except the whale hunting propaganda hidden in it leaves a bad taste in my mouth
    @raygun_bm they're not traditional dragons
    I refuse to read a manga about killing and eating dragons lol. They're sacred to me.
    @Tikibo it's not likely since it got an official translation but you can find it at other aggregator sites (up to chapter 31).
    It's getting anime adaptation so I hope that some group will start translating it again.
    Someone posting rips of the official english again.
    Might be best to leave it. I had no idea this manga existed and now I'm going to see if I can find the other volumes to buy.

    There are similarities with whale hunting but early chapters suggest the dragons will attack towns so its not an entirely one sided fight.
    Ooh, that's gonna leave a mark.

    Someone accidentially added the official licensed translation, which is a big no-no for scanslation sites.

    If someone wants to take the original Japanese raws and retranslate them, that's fine. Otherwise, you may need to buy the official release.
    The official English releases go up to chapter 28 and are published by Kodansha.
    I believe I just got blue-balled when I ran into "this chapter was deleted" is it a bug or was it really deleted?
    Can someone report this manga to any animal rights organization? PETA maybe? I want to see something funny. Lets see how most people react when PETA is triggered with FICTIONAL manga about exploitation of DRAGONS. In the mean time, I'll get my popcorn ready
    I thought that, too, at first, but after reading through it all, it's more like Monster Hunter.
    @PlanOfInaction Wow, I can actually see it now, this whole story just took a turn into something seriously fucked up with just that one comment.
    Yeah this is really about hunting whales isn't it.
    @Gandalfs_Beard preety much all of them? the font gave it away; don't think any scanlation groups used that font. most that i knew used Wild Words, and newbies tend to fall for Arial or something.

    yes i have seen official pages. on another site though.

    nowadays almost all scanlation groups have some sort of credits somewhere. people crave for recognition.
