Back to Genchu and friends! Well, maybe not friends… acquaintances.
Profit speaks with a voice that can be heard by all, but corrupts many.
That’s two prophet/it puns for one page!
Well, you have to think about his situation back home! His unbearably cute kids and beautiful, heroic wife need the money… Genchu, you bastard! Denying small children their milk!
Genchu is doing his best to make sure the mlikless children still have a father! A futile effort, perhaps.
Genchu, rocking the half open shirt.
gotta say I like this group of chaps
Good, because they’re only going to get more awesome, or at least get into more awesome situations!
Wu and Tang also only hear profit: specifically, the prophet who warned them about these priests and Cho walking into a sake bar.
(Written puns with homophones don’t always work too well.)
Oh, I don’t know how all these puns keep ending up in the comments section. I think we need to implement a ‘one pun per page’ policy!
This cracks me up… lol… Man, that guy only hears what he wants to hear, doesn’t he?
“A man, he hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest…”–from “The Boxer”, by Simon & Garfunkel. 😀

I dunnooo Alex… These guys are looking a fair bit higher in quality than I remember them… Careful now!
I’m going to take any perceived elevation in quality as a compliment, sir!
Quick! Do what you did in the market place and fire a gun up into the air! It’ll impress them.
How did you know??
Aah… The magical language of Money! A speech spoken by true men and sometimes unspeakable evils but let’s not talk about that.
It would be funny if Genchu is actually the Taoist priest the prophecy warns of.
What a twist! We’re retconning that in as I type.
I don’t like very much the face of the portuguese merchant. It shouts “greed” loud, it is not good for a merchant. A good merchant should inspire you the feeling you could become rich trading with him, should speaks “money”. As it is it seems doomed and short lived, not dangerous, and I am quite sure it will be dangerous in the end.
Ah, but to the natives, his face is intriguing in its foreign features, why not!
Does this lord belong to another feudal clan? One we haven’t seen before??
Well, it wouldn’t be too bright of Genchu to hide out in Wataro territory after fleeing from Hirotomo!
It’s Medieval Japan. You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting at least THREE Lords.
“The riskier the road, the greater the profit.”
Well, he’s prolly gonna be buddies with the holy men . . . prolly not the merchant though . . .
Just wait until he meets Cho.
He’ll just have to keep them all out of the bars . . .
huh. Portuguese. so that comic can be actually historically acurate. That’s quite fantastic.
Rereading this, I just now noticed in the last panel the priest is PRAYING.
