Man, it has another one of those "Up until now" boxes. I don't like those things.

For example: In the past ten years since the last chapter, all the main characters died, and now we are focusing on the martial arts world ruler will be decided by the person who can best ride the "Air Surf board", a new technology that is just like surfboards but they fly in the air. While there are lots of good people at this sport, the relatively unknown newcomer who has never tried it before has a special talent: will he aim for the top!?!?

Just a somewhat exaggerated example of the kind of thing that I do not like. I did buy UJ this morning though, and leafing through the chapter it doesn't look like they skipped over much. It is a bit trippy though.

UJ this month comes with a little sticker you put over your cell phone screen that is polarized and prevents people from reading your screen if they aren't looking at it head-on (an "email" privacy screen.) They are really popular here. I haven't really cared if people read my cell phone email in the subway, but since this one was a pretty cool head shot of Bunshichi, my phone now sports a privacy screen. It isn't as effective as the other ones that I've seen, but what do you expect as a throw in with a 500 yen magazine?

Good for you, Fugu. Care to give us a little morsel of a synopsis? 8)

In the mean time, here's more Asshat for Fight 103.

I literally just leafed through the chapter before hopping on the Shinkansen for a conference, but it was basically like this: Asshat is hanging out in some abandoned train car, training and chatting to a cute girl. We get some strange scenes of the school and the witch Nokimi, then Asshat starts fighting a less-zombified looking Koumikawa and gets his arm broken. That's it. Oh, and everyone seemed shocked that Asshat would fight, and were reminded of the Mitsuomi-Shin fight via flashbacks. I didn't read any text though, so damned if I know what is going on.

No eyebrows remember? Don't trust people without eyebrows, like Whoopi Goldberg and Al Gore, they're creepy but you can't figure out why until you realize they have no eyebrows.

Well, here you go: http://www.mrprophet.com/temp/v17c103.zip

OH SHI-

Mataza, his dad and Makiko are back. And Makiko is now Teh Bionic Woman....

Basically, just like Fugu said, Asshat trains a lot and then proceeds to kick the crap out of everyone on the enemy team. Koumikawa, though, isn't so easy. Asshat almost gets her, but she manages to deflect his shots and break his arm in the end. For a zombie, Koumikawa is rather fast. 8)

Hi everybody,
I haven't been reading TJTG for a long time and now trying to catch back up.
I'm kinda curious about something.

What is Asshat senpai's specialty anyways?
Boxing? Is he just natually athletic?
When did he suddenly become a fighter
I thought his strength was the many hot chicks that work for him.

I am going to find and catch up with the published books, but please help me get this answered.
Thanks :D

Looks like kickboxing to me. Or just boxing.
When did he suddenly become a fighter
Well, as the latest chapter shows, he trains quite a lot because he doesn't want to become a victim once again like it happened 3 years ago.

Since the fighters in this manga is largely divided in to two groups;
descendents of ancient families and upstarts,
I thought maybe Asshat senpai has realized his 'hidden potential' or something.

If he "jus' trained reel hard and gave 110%" to get strong, I guess that is that...

Thanks MrProphet

Too late lol, yeah they only ever show him training with boxing gloves and the only fight we ever saw was when Nagi "recruited" him and he just punched him(Nagi did comment it was incrdible punch).
Well I guess OG can't help himself anymore looks like this chapter was the shortest flashback arc in TenTen, lets call it the "Asshat trains" arc, lol. At least we got to see Makiko and Mataza, wow I can't believe OG actually did something fans have been asking for for a while(I know alot of people on this board suggested it) give Makiko mechanical arms, cool (doesn't look like shes doing that well otherwise though). What's witch girl saying , spin, turn ? Maware te nani? Poor Asshat and after he got so built up the last 2 chapters he was right all along, well at least OG didn't kill him, I guess we have to wait for Nagi or someone who can fight vs zombie girl next chapter. :roll:

Oh and from the Kanji I can read looks like Yorihira might actually be explaining who witch girl is I keep seeing "Kago" and "Souhaku" said while he's looking at her.

The way zombie girl fights seems like Nokimi overwritted her self preservation instinct(you know, how one can't use more then 20% or so of muscle power so you don't injure yourself), she's likely breaking her own bones and tearing her own muscles with the power she put behind her attacks.

His arm is finished, his tendons were more then likely cut at the elbow, the only heavy punch he has now(as a boxer) is a short range left hook, which he can't really set up with a jab since she doesn't seem to feel pain...

This fight should be over, hopefully it'll finish before he's dead or looses the use of his other arm.

i love on page 20 where ms zombie's fingernail is ripping off of her finger reminds me of samura's work.

and the next page with the tatami usage :p

poor sugano though, first his face gets jacked up, now his arm is completely done for. we're going to have 3 terminators soon, with all of these robotic arms. oh great was doing foreshadowing with the terminator theme music back in fight99 >.<

I'm ordering this issue because I want that privacy screen. Would've preferred one of MAya or Aya, though.

Yeah I'd say it's over, I really don't see Asshat trying to fight anymore, that was brutal.

Mmm, I know his arm is finished, but
Asshat at least bring her down and proves himself before the end.

But, I wonder who will fill Asshat's seat for next match.
BTW, if Nokimi is at the side of Nagi, Why would she send her puppet to fight?

I doubt it, he's going to be in too much pain.
There are still 5 members Bob, Nagi, Aya, Masataka and Kurei.

Isn't it a Tenjo Tenge norm to fight with two broken legs, a missing eye, and your intestines wrapped around your neck?

I'm pretty sure Asshat is going to finish the fight. I mean, everyone predicted he would be done for the tournament last chapter too. I think Oh Great! is trying to establish that he's a badass, and will likely take him out of the game for awhile -after- he finishes his rampage.

funny how mataza is passing makiko some water...... damn you souhaku........ look at what makiko has to go through because of his ass! sorry for the language. Hmmm... seems like its a gathering happening at the election tournament. Wonder if we will see the ex-takayanagi flying phoenix 12 feather family.... And you know what I've been wondering? what happened to ishiyumi and shidzuru?

Didn't Nokimi tell Asshat that she likes to help 3 people in Juukenbu?

And for Asshat,
She told Asshat that she can see Deathgod behind him.
Maybe, she wants to retire asshat from start.

And, isn't Kurei just Alien?
If he does some fight, it would be interesting, but It would be fun to see new character or Maya comes back for team.

It doesn't matter if Kurei fights or doesn't, because not everyone is obligated to fight. As long as there are 5 members in a team, a single person can fight everyone by himself/herself.

Oh you mean "On Nagi's side", and I don't think she was being altruistic when she said that :twisted: yeah it looks like she knew what was coming for non red feathers. Seriously? That's just a joke, he does train, that chapter when Bob came back they're all in a line and he's at the end doing a kameha wave :D And like Mr Prophet pointed out as long as there's 5 not everyone has to fight, in the past arc Bunshichi fought everyone alone after Maya was attacked.

I just thought of something, in Aikido and Judo you don't let go of the opponent once you have him in a hold untill they give up(I doubt she would actually stop) or are no longer a threat(unconscious).

So instead of wandering if "Lefty" is gonna give up or not we should be wonder if she's not gonna move into a chockehold or break more bones.

Given OG! track record I say he either wins with an insane left hook/uppercut or that he ends up more or less quadriplegic.

I think he just writhes in pain and Masataka or someone else steps in and all hell breaks loose, it's been building up now for the last 3 chapters something is going to happen.

I hope he doesn't go all "this is my fight stay out of it", 'cuz that's usually followed with the "cough-cough and die" scene, Asshat just learned to be all bad-ass I hope he also learned when to quit...

Yes, it would suck if Asshat decided to "pull a Maya" on us. 8)

Though, that he could go from pointless to somewhat lamented is quite a testament to Oh! Great, is it not?

Thanks again Fugu, great work as usual. Hmm that's something I didn't think about a Kago branch family, cool, but what a gross power. Puts them in the liver? I could see the ear or brain(or the other places mentioned) but the liver, hmm well whatever. I guess that makes her and Nagi sorta related.

I was right! I said in fight 102:
"Nokomi's "leeches" seem to be a weaker version of Souhaku's spheres(you know the ones he gave to Madoka and had inserted in Fu Chien's eye), they provide control and a boost of power(as seen by Gushiken's body transformation and zombie Koumikawa)"

Cool, but I wonder if his contolling of Fu and Madoka was part of Souhaku's red feather power since I thought it was the "Flaming dragon wheel" that is the power over death, it almost seems like OG changed his mind about Souhaku's power and gave the original "possesion" power to a new character, unless it's like the dragon eye and dragon pupil where the branch family power is just a watered down version of the original. I gotta wonder what even constitutes a "branch" family? Because so far we haven't really seen one that is all that different from the original and wouldn't someone from the branch originally have to have been from the main family so why is it even a branch? In this case since Souhaku was the only head of his family ever does that mean he had a kid a long time ago that started this branch?

Well, if Inue is another branch family of Kago, then Nokimi's Dragon Gate seems to fit Inue's Dragon Roar.

Don't branch families simply refer to (very) distant cousins, relatives or small clans hailing from similar lines of consanguinity? Souhaku doesn't have to be the progenitor of everyone after him within the Kago clan, you know. (Though I wouldn't be surprised if that actually turned out to be true...)

Another possible explanation is that maybe some branch families are simply bound by kinship ties, and aren't really related by blood with the main line. Considering that red feather abilities are involved however, I presume there's a relationship there somewhere.

Well since all 12 families seem distanly related(didn't Souhaku talk about reuniting the blood of the 12 families?) I'm going to assume branches are related to a main family by blood, and since Souhaku has been the sole head of his family you could assume the branch came from him though I guess the possibility exists he had brothers and or sisters who didnt have his power (like Maya) and started their own branches where their powers sprang up in future generations. And this still bothers me about Souichiro, is he genetically Souhaku's son? Since Souhaku had Shyoujyou's body, unless over time he regenerated his own body from his eye.(like his fingers?)

Well, Sokahu probably exchanged his body of Shyouhyou long ago with brand new body. When he was with Nagi's mother before Nagi was born, they were both young.

For Kago's minor family, I think they are children of Kago more than his brother/sister of kago. Kago sohaku was the first head of Kago family.
And, all 12 family are related by blood was one in the begining.

That means, other 11 heads of other 12 family would be Sohaku's brother/sisters.

I don't know, its very hard to say if he had brothers/sisters since we are still clueless as to kago's upbringings and why he's become what he is today. However, the switching bodies theory could be the explanation to why souichirou doesn't have kago's dragon gate since kago can't directly pass his genes. Or it could be that no one can have 2 red feather gates

But him looking young could be explained by him having Shyoujyou's body, he could make himself look any age he wanted with Shyoujyou's power, I presume. Or that could be his own power making him young. Though I guess you could be right and he changed again and they could have been a member of his own family(maybe he even changed their face with Shyoujyou's power before switching too).

Yeah if was the first I guess he would have to have children since that one guy must be his father.

Well, OG did not show everything about Sohaku's power.
Sohaku has an ability to revive dead and take over other's body.
But, I am not really sure he can control other family's power by taking other family's members' body.

Because I believe only family who can use multiple chacra gate is Nagi family only. If Sohaku can use special power of other family members (by taking their body), that breaks a rule in TenTen. Unless OG suddenly says Souhaku is special or something.

I really want to know Souhaku's purpose of staying in Nagi's body.
1. We can guess that he is trying to take over and use Nagi's body with nearly all Red feather's abilities.
2. He might try to be part of Nagi's body. By joining body, Nagi's power should be very close to Susa (supposely first one with all the redfeather power)

I dont think it breaks any rules, the chakras are on the body if you are in that body you can use it's gates. Nagi's is the only one that can have more than one on his own body.
So far it seems Souhaku's plan has been to awaken everyone's powers and start a war between them and everyone else. And being in Nagi's body he's eliminated the one person who can stop those people.

I don't think that Souhaku can revive the dead, since I think the consensus on this forum was that Fu Chi'en wasn't dead... he was just really-really-really messed up.

Also, I think that the whole "regrowing fingers" trick was a Dragon Gate of the body that Souhaku was residing in until Mitsuomi chopped his head off. That is, it's not a Kago Dragon Gate, but that of some unfortunate schmuck who used to house Souhaku.

.
Right he can't there has to be some ki left in the body, so someone might be "medically dead" but he could revive them if there was ki still there.
