I certainly do...
Seems we'll have to wait for 12 more matches before the finale.

It's not like we don't know which two teams are going to head into the finals......I'll probably graduate college and grad-school, get married, have kids who grow up and still reading new chapters of TenTen before it ends.

Wow, Souichiro and Masataka eating lunch, when will the excitement end :roll: Oh Great is seriously dragging his feet now. And on top of that it looks like we're going to get yet another flashback with Aya...I seriously can't take much more of this, this book is another boring chapter away from losing me...

Download from http://rsf.mangas-fr.com/
If you have information about bandwidth- you must wait until tomorrow morning and all will be ok ;)

And about new chapter- well well well.
First i'm happy seeing some AyaxNagi moment.But that was definetly too short.
Next- i really don't understand relations MasatakaxNagi...
They want fight each other ? O_o
Why Nagi "attack" Masataka ? He want show his strenght ?
That he's usefull ? O_o
Masataka look a lil bit scary seeing Nagi eye...
And about Maya- how long she will be "healing"...I know that she was half-dead etc. but....ugh....
The new chapter bore me like hell.....i don't want next "fluffys", i want more action, helloooooo we have a tournament, aren't we ?

Finally, it seems some info on Reiki is comming our way, specificaly who owned it/found it after Souhaku "died", hopefully more. Plus a bit on what happened to Chizuru and Ishiyumi, at least I hope Madoka develops it beyond an "I used Reiki once to help them".

A number of interesting things in this chapter:

Looking at the tournament chart, the 4th round has just completed (it seems). I think the Juuken-bu's next opponent is the "AF doukou-kai" (AF similar tastes society?). Alien comments that due to the insects many "unmarked" (ie considered weak/insignificant) teams have progressed and vice versa.

It's the evening after the previous chapter. Aya in the shower is a bit stressed out from using too much Ki today and wonders about her ability to become stronger. She thanks Souichirou for being there - basically, without her love for him to drive her, she feels she wouldn't have gotten as far as she did.

At the hospital, Madoka finds it creepy that Aya's fake Reiki is an exact copy of the real thing. More interestingly, Aya comments that she wasn't actually trying to replicate Reiki - she was just imagining a normal sword. She becomes very suspicious about Reiki and starts to figure some things out. She asks Madoka about how things were when she used Reiki (including if she cut anyone), and also that Madoka is fine after the battle while the other two are still hospitalised. Aya remembers how Reiki got dropped and feels she is getting close to finding the last piece in the puzzle.

I wonder if that lady who finds Reiki stuck in the group is Senhime? After all, she has the power of neutralisation as does Reiki... Does she have some revenge handed down for Souhaku too?

Thanks Shouki!

So Shizuru and Ishuyumi are hospitalised, didn't see that comming... at least they're not dead.

Maybe the tournament will proceed quickly if only a bunch of weak teams are still in it.

I'm guessing the girl who found Reiki is an ancestor of the Natsumi's, after all Shinn's and Maya's blond hair must come from somewhere in the gene pool.

Talking about Senhime, did Souhaku reclame her after he resurrected? If not we have a good case for her getting Reiki back to the Natsumis.
Any descendant of Senhime's who has acces to her gate would be the worst enemy for Souhaku, add Reiki to the mix and he'd be dead meat.

in the end of chapter 108 when kabane looks at nagi his eye had some inscriptions and he thanked souhako for something that happened in the past since then souichiro eye seems to have gained life

could kabane just wanted to battle aya for the rest of the crew go met her and then he would have a chance to do that?

Shin and Maya dyed their hair :wink: Maya mentioned this way back when Izumi chopped it off at the bowling alley fight. Everyones natural hair color is black, they're all Japanese.

I dont think so, it doesn't really look like her and Reiki had that before anyway. Thanks for the other insights anything interesting from the Masataka, Souichiro conversation?

Reiki certainly had *some* powers when ancient Aya had it. But did it have all of them? I think Aya is doing a bit of compare before and after in her thinking. Anyway, we'll have to wait and see (ie just what Aya has figured out). I certainly wouldn't be willing to place a bet that that lady was Senhime - the series of frames does suggest several years have past, but would it have been enough years for Senhime to grow up? Or is it some *new* character? (Seems very high class though, like Senhime).

As for Masataka and Souichiro, it's a bit hard to figure out without actually trying to translate the whole thing. It starts off with the group following their rule (during the tournament I think) of nobody being by themselves - Aya and alien are staying at the hospital with Sugu, Chiaki's pretty blunt about what she and Bob are going to be doing, so that leaves chalk and cheese as a pair (Aya tells them not to fight...) Immediately they want to go in different directions.

Later in the bunny bar (lol) it's last orders but the "senpai" of the group (Masataka) isn't willing to spend money, so Souichirou uses some cliche gangster style moves on the owner to get some free food (which leaves Masataka feeling very sorry). Anyway, they start talking about old times a bit, with some comments back to early chapters -eg, it was only recently, but for "some reason" it feels like a VERY long time, and "who's that guy?" (pointing to the old character designs...).

I think Souichirou is suggesting Masataka needs a bit of a wake-up call to come out of his shell...

Thanks, I thought the whole look at my "infected" eye thing might be something, since up til now only Aya knows about Souhaku, and Masataka was so taken aback.

OOh what an interesting development, Nagi knows about his eye? Hmm and he actually wants Masataka to help him because he thinks out of everyone he can actually do it. I would think that's pretty high praise coming from Nagi. Finally this story is getting intersting again :D

I need some explanation on the Nagi-Mastaka issue.

I understood they didn't want fight thanx to the translation and the different posts, but, I'm unable to figure out why souichirou said that.
So, my question remains : is he telling to masataka that he has a key role to play in this story or in the denouement ? And, if it's correct, why such a attitude with him ?

Despite the translation, lot's of french guys still think an obvious battle between them will occur, but I do not share that optinion ... do someone has any better explanation or precision ?

It sounds to me like Nagi respects Masataka, and is making some references to Souichirou inhabiting his eye.

Anyway, it isn't all crystal clear in Japanese either, so you have to do your own interpretation. I recommend that you try to translate from the Japanese directly into French, since the English version that I post here has my biases influencing it.

I guess.
we have "hired" a new tranlstaor recently, jap->fr. I should ask him to have a look at it.

But we aggre with the fact there's nothing about fighting. That's the most important for simple minds.
It's sad, but the main question for most of people about tenjo tenge is "who is fighting who ??!! tell me !"

Thank you !

Alas, Fugu, we have no french translator interested into Ten².

The teams work regarding your (excellent) job... And well, even if you do a great job, there is an obvious biais.

I can tell, you might be surprised, you do a better job than French official translation. Until the volume 8 at least, all were translated from... Italian. Which leaded to some lack of... relevance.

Yep, it's completely unprofessional... It's, though, very complicated. Manga in France is so popular that you could cover it with shit, people would buy it anyway.
And precisely, about Ten², Italians were one of the first to translate it... And Panini Comics (which has the right for Ten² in France) is an Italian company...

Lately, it's getting better because the concurrence is getting fierce, there are so much products translated that they try to make quality. But the worst has already been done.

For the amateurs, well, Ten² is not really popular. We have a great bunch of french people able to read/understand japanese, but no one has already been motivated to translate ten²... Hence why I treasure your effort :D
