Description: One day in the 21st century, a gate opened
in the middle of the Ginza district of
Tokyo. Out of the gate poured soldiers and
strange creatures, and they soon made Ginza
look like an image of hell. The gate apparently connected Japan to another world, a world
with a militant empire and many supernatural creatures. The Japanese Self-Defense Force
decided to send a small group, led by a
soldier who's also an otaku, into the other
world on a reconnaissance mission. They're
meant to learn what they can about the empire (and its plans), the world, and the people.

They're hardly in the world yet, though, when
they come across a village destroyed by a
giant fire-breathing dragon. The only survivor
is an unconscious elven girl they find hidden
in a well. Now they feel like they must warn
the nearby towns about the dragon, and do what they can to help. On the way, they'll meet more magical, female companions, and learn more about this dangerous new world.

Okay everyone, get your 5d20 and roll for anal circumference !

lol, you were right, I made dumb mistake :D

How did the comment section turn to a math class?

Education Batoto style

How did the comment section turn to a math class?

seriously?? Are you from special class or just stupid?!
 
fist of all: GTFO with inches. Nobody cares (even though your information actually proves that I am right... you just didn't do the math)
 
 
FYI: (for your information)
50 caliber is indeed 12,7mm. (or 0.5inch) No disagreement here.
And it doesn't matter if you say " .50 " or " 50 " , it's firearm's slang, nobody bothers to say "decimal point" every time. If you want to butt in, then at least do some research first.

let's do the math: 12,7 / 50 = 0,254
 
now look again and ask yourself, what looks like correct formula:

or

Check your manners, kid.

You keep failing to see why the dot matters so much even though that is something gradeschoolers are taught. Yes, you don't mention the dot in everyday talk, but in written form and ESPECIALLY if you want to talk about math, it matters. And of course the inches matter, since that is exactly what that number is - nothing but the bullet diameter in inches. Which is why you leave out any additional zeros in the math formula. If we don't do this, we get crap like this:

12.7 / 50 (.50 Action Express) = 0.254

12.7 / 500 (.500 S&W Magnum) = 0.0254

Both are cartridges of the exact same calibre of 12.7mm which so happen to be named differently. However if you did your gradeschool math correctly and left out any additional 0's, it'd look like this:

12.7 / 5 = 2,54

Which is the only correct formula. If you still have trouble understanding, please consult someone who can teach you basic math, because we really should not clutter the comment section any further. I for one will ignore any further comments on that matter, especially if you can't keep your tone civil.

You're wrong and Isenduil is right. The number refers to the bullet diameter of a .50 cal being 0.5 inch. 0.1 inch are 2.54mm. Or for your example, the .450 Nitro Express ammunition is, big surprise, 0.45 inch in diameter, or in metric units, 11.6mm. Don't forget the "." and what it means, ever! :P

.1 cal = 0,254 mm :P

.1 caliber = 2,54 mm

actually, it's .1 cal = 0.254 mm :P

For thouse who dont know, cause you read it here and there in the comments:

 

.1 caliber = 2,54 mm

Spoiler

actually, it's .1 cal = 0.254 mm :P

wonder what the JSDF medal for dragon slaying looks like

 

I commend you for your comment being different than the others.

For thouse who dont know, cause you read it here and there in the comments:

 

.1 caliber = 2,54 mm

 

So, for example, the gun which they used in chapter 6 to nail the dragon was a .50 caliber = 12,7 mm

 

 

For any questiones about details ask one of thouse experts who are lurking around here :P

Actually... yes. They are "insides", because they are vulnerable... and need to be protected from outside influences and yes, there is no creature on our earth that can't be killed with modern firearms. (not that I know of anyway)

Spoiler

dude, seriously read some stuff before you start explaining "your oppinion" about the world and animals.
 
I dare you to try killing grizzly bear with anything between .10 and .40 caliber. After grizzly kills you, you can start thinking why "acumulated dmg on insides" didn't work
 
It's almost impossible to kill larger animals unless you have enough firepower to penetrate their skin/armor and then penetrate their fat and muscles to reach their organs.
Well, unless you manage to do critical hit :D

Spoiler

on the other hand there was one Grizzly that was terrorizing the Territory of Wyoming at the turn of the Twentieth Century.
Many skilled hunters with strong guns tried to kill him and were never seen or heard from again. Ultimately one hunter managed to kill grizzly with help of trained dogs...while grizzly was busy killing dogs, hunter kept shooting grizzly and eventually managed to kill him.
Later they examined that grizzly and they found OVER 100 big caliber bullets inside his body and even 5 bullets lodged INSIDE GRIZZLY'S BRAIN!!!
let me say it again:

common misconception of mankind. We consider ourselves perfect, so we assume that every living being's body is similar to ours.
Just because we have really weak insides, that doesn't mean, that every organic being has really weak insides as well.

I am not saying that military can't kill dragon. They can kill it with enough firepower. But definitely not with something as stupid as "acumulated dmg on insides"

^ same as above. 'Humans have weak organs' DOESN'T MEAN 'every organic being has weak organs'.

The .50 cal rifle will have no effect if a similar caliber MG with AP rounds didn't.

 

You're not going to get close enough to it to slap C4 charges on its body either. Most animals are extremely hard to surprise in their sleep, particularly if you're approaching from upwind.

@the politics

It's based on an older work (or at least inspired by it) where the cold-war mentality is still alive and present.  I don't see why jsdf would need a UN or ally assistance since the other side invaded first and the japanese gov. already know the opponent's capability (which is a joke compared to modern ordinance) during that battle. 

Long story short: The post-WWII treaty states that (basically) anything that causes the JSDF/the Japanese government to hit the 'panic' button instantly triggers U.S. assistance.

 

For comparison, the 2011 earthquake/tsunami/Fukashima disaster took place on March 11. On March 12, the U.S. military commenced Operation Tomodachi for emergency relief efforts.

The internal-damage thing applies to both explosives and snipers. The explosion won't rip that behemoth of a dragon apart, but its organs would get damaged by the shock. Same goes for firearms that don't penetrate and thus distribute their kinetic energy into a shock wave that can cause internal damage.
If a soldier has armor powerful enough to withstand one of the longer range sniper rifles, his rib cage would break - at least a few ribs.
If it hits the head and doesn't penetrate, there's a good chance it might break his neck instead, since most the force that would normally blow a huge hole in his head now is quickly moving his head backwards. Oh and the brain is damaged, too. At the very least the soldier would fall unconscious.
Of course the dragon's massive muscles and tougher scales might absorb a lot of that shock and deflect piercing rounds more easily, but it's not like you would use "anti-human" snipers against motherfucking dragons.

Maybe it wouldn't need to "penetrate"? The massive physical trauma(/head trauma) would mess up its guts or shake its brain apart.
Maybe it won't kill it, but fighting a retarded dragon sounds a lot easier to me...

the elf girl failed her sanity check

hahaha

The anime picture was more impressive than the real deal, use the Panzerbüchse

 

Suou.Pavlichenko.full.83445.jpg

well as single bazooka was able to rip the dragon's arm off I'd say it wouldn't be that hard to kill it. At least while reading other plans of the matter.

 

 

Also the elf girl failed her sanity check  due to Itami's critacal hit with the bucket quite a while ago. So it's critical save that she just erased Itami's existence in favor for her father. ( I also bet my GM is a bit "odd" with the handling on saves in general.... )

That wouldn't necessary work, just look at mid-medieval knights (especially their duels).  Their swords were glorified clubs intended to concuss their opponent or to simply tire them out.  The fight usually ends when the opponent is unable to retaliate and the winner use a thin sword to stab through the slit of the helm/chest piece to kill the loser.

 

So in the end, some sort of penetration IS required.  RPG/Rockets have the necessary power (zook did take out a limb).  Or if you can somehow have the dragon eat a cow full of explosives with a remote/chemical trigger, that might be enough to mess with its inside (we don't know how its regenerative work, I mean, it lost a limb and didn't die from blood loss with no first aid, so it's closer to a lizard?)  .

You can't compare the force behind a mace and a high-powered sniper rifle. Also the internal-damage thing applies to both explosives and snipers, but I was trying to counter the argument that C4 is being overestimated (which is true). The explosion won't rip that behemoth of a dragon apart, but its organs would get damaged by the shock. Same goes for firearms that don't penetrate and thus distribute their kinetic energy into a shock wave that can cause internal damage.

wow, how did I miss this little gem of a manga? Agreed that the politics in this thing are waaaay off from what would realistically happen, but still fun to read.

At the point Japan decided not to have a joint military operation with the US/other UN nations when dealing with the gate was when everyone should have gotten the red flag that all political scenarios in this manga are extremely unrealistic.  So chapter 1.  Enjoy your fiction and be prepared to laugh at the polarized political ideology espoused by the author or go home.  You have no control over his world.

Politic is too complicated for me, but I see two obvious reasons:

 

1- Japanese (rather no one on earth) don't likes foreign armies march into their capital.

2- JSDF is winning, so why should Japan share the "spoils of war"?

 

Every man for himself when It comes to national interests.

why not get survey bots/radar scan and find out where the dragon sleeps at

plant tons of explosives when the dragon leave to hunt

done, you'll get an all you can eat BBQ dragon meat buffet

I find last few chapters really boring :-/

Ch.36 working title: "politics blah blah"
Ch.37 working title: "Itami doesn't intend to kill Dragon pt1 + slave's pointlessly over-complicated evil plan revealed"
Ch.38 working title: "Itami doesn't intend to kill Dragon pt2"
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chapters 36+37+38 in short "nothing really happens"
 
this manga is released once a month FFS ... author should be able to write something interesting.

Thats what happens when a manga tries to be political. A whole lot of talking and a whole lot of nothing.

 

That said, maybe its just because I read it infrequently (oh monthly mangas...) but it feels like the art is getting wonkier as it goes along. Things just don't look 'right' and I can't quite pin down what it is.

Hence plan B.

Or we just beg Rory to massacreslaughter it.
