thanks for the explanation, ultimateking!

Miu is a great person - and a hot chick, too. ranking #2 along with Renka imho ^^
(first is Shigure, no doubt).


0.0002% combination technique + closed eyes... even if elder is "only" the strongest being in this area like that, then he must be many times stronger than the other masters.
Hence maybe only the one shadow is a match for him... ?

I am getting excited

i have to make this clear once and for all: it's called the 0.0002% kumite (=sparring), and not combination technique, perfectcircle screwed up pretty badly with his translations -.-

I like Miu, but it is hard to her to get attention when she is sharing panels with the other women in the manga. We have Shigure, Castor, and Renka. Not only that but the YOMI master and her student have been recently introduced. You have a loli and a Master that gives Shigure a run for her money when it comes to "assets."

How are these getting translated so fast? After watching the anime a few months ago, I was planning to continue in the manga when it hit 250(and it did today, YAY!), the last time I really saw the latest translated chap(saw, not read) it was at like 215 and that was like a month and a half ago .

Also is there anything bad about the translations? Just read ultimateking's post, I don't want to read bad translations .

Beauties at work.

Spoiler for Jenny:

Ok, this is not Black Lagoon nor Gunslinger Girl, but that shot is just incredibly awesome.

Spoiler for Shigure:

What's with the seductive look when she's grabbing onto the... gun?

And I thought I was reading a different manga when I saw the cover page of 251. lol

well it is because most of the other translators suck (if u don't believe me, read ch. 233 done by perfectcircle, it should still be floating around everywhere lol)

A technique fit for the superhuman elder


Btw does this mean Miu finally accepted Kenichi? It is like saying "no, i like someone else"

Spoiler for Miu x Kenichi (?):

I believe it was given to Kenichi from Shigure.
Shigure always wears a "鎖帷子" in English it's "Chain Mail".

This entire Yomi arc has revolved more around Miu than Kenichi. In fact:


Spoiler for chapter 246+:


Even Ryuuto is still enamoured with Miu decades after they first met. He's saved her twice now (indirectly) from Shou Kano. Also, Shou's bodyguards have vanished since they were last seen confronting Odin . I'm hoping to see Odin continue his mysterious loner role. I wonder what his plans really were for Ragnarok or whether the eight fists could reform?

Actually I think the last time power levels was used was after Freeza went 100% all out afterwhich the entire base recording their strengths blew up for no real reason.

Just a quick question, but has the new YOMI girl's name been given? From what I have read, that girl is suppose to be extremely intelligent and was moved up into Kenichi's school instead of middle school because of it. Is that girl closer to Honoka's age?

I lol'd at chapter 250 and 251. I like this manga, but come on. The master's would have been decimated by the firearms. The American troops would have fared better with weapons. But this has been leaving the world of realism for the last 200 chapters, lol.

The name of the techniques the elder uses are hilarious xD Going as far as naming it as a technique when all he did was flip a tank lol

Yeah, all he did was flip a tank. Must feel like tossing frisbee for him.

I can see unarmed techniques being effective in urban combat. With plenty of buildings to provide cover, and restricted line of sight to use firearms, an armed force could be taken down by guerilla warfare using terrain effectively (even if relying only on surprise and close combat techniques).

Someone with a gun will probably lose to a martial arts master if the master can get to grappling range undetected. However, the manga exaggerated that basic reality times 100. Especially in those scenes where the soldiers had a chance to aim and fire their guns at the masters from range.

Spoiler for 252:
