From the cover, I hadn't expected this manga to be good. The art did promise to be excellent, but the storyline was the point worrying me, for this isn't a period I'm used to seeing good HF for.

And, to be honest, the beginning didn't assuage my fears at all. On the contrary, the mysticism surrounding the birth of Hannibal Barca and the story of how he was saved just in time from being made a sacrifice to Baal was close to putting me off the book for good. But I persisted, even though the inciden

Otro manga que, por el momento, no puedo ser enteramente objetiva ya que hace algunos años que conozco este manga y me enamoré de él porque trata una de las guerras que más me gustan y conozco de la antigüedad: la segunda guerra Púnica.
Si bien el autor se toma bastantes licencias y se pasa por el forro el Tratado del Ebro (226 a.c) entre romanos y cartagineses, en general este primer tomo (y los siguientes) están bien documentados.
El manga en sí se centra en los dos personajes clave de este con

Ho appena finito il primo volume di "Ad astra" e la cosa che mi ha colpito più di tutte è la straordinaria precisione e fedeltà storica.
Solo le prime pagine mostrano un po' di magia, quel tocco minimo e necessario per rendere Annibale Barca il grande generale e tattico che è stato.

Ad Astra nous offre un intéressant manga historique qui traite d’un moment clé de l’histoire de la République Romaine. Si le récit est un peu lent (il s’étend sur une douzaine de volumes et plus!) il demeure assez détaillé et fidèle au événements qui nous sont connu. Le récit semble très bien documenté et ne fait pas seulement de nous présenter l’action mais en explique le contexte et les conséquences. Toutefois, comme dans tout roman historique, l’auteur introduit quelques personnages, événemen ...more

一邊讀本書,一邊緬懷好玩但2019年2月要收掉的遊戲——全軍破敵:競技場

本書愛用別人驚訝的表情來凸顯出主角的強大
氣氛營造的不錯
但本書的最後中斷的地方過於突然

話說西庇阿跟漢尼拔恰巧是遊戲裡的13個指揮官中勝率最低的那2個
