to:

** "Asterix and the Chieftain's Daughter" reveals that Brutus is back by his side despite being supposedly banished. Playing with a knife. So about that pitch for Astérix and the Ides of March...


** Japan during 50 BC was still in the midst of the Yayoi period would be vastly different to what many modern people would be able to recognise as Japanese.

to:

*China would make more sense than Japan as the Han Dynasty was the dominate far east Asian civilization during the time period of the late Roman Republic, and many of china cultural aspects had their origins during the Han Dynasty so logically an adventure in China should be as East as Asterix and Obelix should go as Han era China would still be easily recognizable to modern day audience as Chinese, while Yayoi Japan would be completely unrecognizable as Japanese

** A lot of the ancient world in this series incorporate modern jokes/references, so would it be so different or more importantly would it matter?

to:

* Going by the dates of the ancient Olympic Games, ''Asterix at the Olympic Games'' was set in 48 BC.



* As for Japan, Asterix has already made it to India, why not further than that? It'd be a great opportunity to indulge in Japanese references (manga, idols, etc).

[[WMG: ''Asterix at the Olympic Games'' is chronologically the last adventure]]
Caesar was told the Gauls had taken part to the Olympic Games as Romans... And recognized their claim, thus making them Roman citizens. Upon being informed he had accidentally surrendered, Vitalstatix, to not be less than Caesar whenever ''he'' had lost to them, decided to not stage a "rebellion" but to [[GracefulLoser peacefully accepting the new situation]]... On certain conditions, that Caesar was all too happy to grant-



to:

* Many Gauls at the time were historically bilingual. Aside for that, it's the principle of the thing: Rome has not defeated ''them'' in battle so the Romans don't get to claim them as Roman subjects unless it benefits them.



to:

* Tintin is Belgian, Asterix is French. Different lands, and stories. The Thomsons appearance was an Easter egg reference and at most a crossover.



* Not to mention that the new team has to kill off Caesar really soon, as even if you interpret the "Goths" in the third volume as Franks or Friesians and give Ekonomikrisis a state-of-the-art ship speedwise, we still have to be (as of thirty-seven books in) getting pretty near 44 BC in the series timeline.

[[WMG: Future stories will take Asterix to Japan and Norway.]]
* Asterix and Obelix've already met the Normans twice (once when they came to Gaul, and secondly in the Great Crossing), but those meetings were brief. An actual Norse adventure in the Norselands will happen eventually.

Octavius would be pretty young, around 13 years old as of 50 BC (ComicBookTime aside). Maybe for a loose satire of Millenials just as Justforkix was of Baby Boomers?

** There's also the appearance of Pompey in ''Asterix and the Actress''. The real Pompey was killed at the end of the Civil War depicted in ''Asterix the Legionary'', before Caesar met Cleopatra and became dictator. In this universe, Pompey survived.
