>tacit acknowledgement of the anime's production on page like 250
yeah okay like that's totally real

On the front page of the magazine, it says "climax of the war against the nation!", to which I lend no credence, but let's try to stay positive this week, guys; okay?

I'm including this because I thought some of you might be amused by it. If you've been paying attention to these translations, you might remember who this is. Here's a video of him/who he is, at any rate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvsgixKCWg8

Itagaki Keisuke vs Nasukawa Tenshin - Talk Battle - The Strongest Talk/Interview is Happening!
Super High School Senior - Super Mangaka
blah blah blah, he's like Baki because they're both fighting at the top level at age 17, they call him "the real Baki"; therefore, a talk with Itagaki was necessary
"There's a hint to the strongest in here, pay close attention."
No idea what that means; might refer to the entire magazine or just this chapter.
Their conversation is after the chapter in the magazine. I can't possibly have the energy to translate it now, so I'll see about it later.

The line is originally "They know to the point that they know too much." or "Knowing to the point of knowing too much."
Dunno a better way of putting that. The concept is like if someone said that they knew what a wet dog tasted like: in the exact moment when they came to understand the taste, they 'knew more than they should know'; it's a situation that one should never be in. Any suggestions for the scanlation?

You read the headline; this is apparently the climax. Given that line, I think they will recognize pursuing Musashi as "not worth", and give him a Yuujiro-type treatment. After all - Yuujiro got his treaty when it was determined that he could match an army; not an entire country. Anyway, unlike Yuujiro, Musashi likes attention. His getting extremely-public special treatment because he's strong could lead to civil revolt, or something. Who knows? THINK POSITIVE.

Not him but as I understood it Memetobe was trying to say that compared to Musashi the current fighters do it for fun and because of that they'll get stomped on. So Motobe being the only one that still bothered to study Musashi-era fighting took him on with all his tricks to try to prove that point.
>>
>>155825965
I think this is the climax of the fight with the police, not of he conflict between Musashi and modern Japan.
>>
>>155827193
Nah, doppo had 5 copies of the book of five rings and he had read them to almost break them.

Memetobe was saying that he is the only one that had trained in that kind of martial arts.
>>
>>155827206
It says 対国家戦、クライマックス. Word-by-word, that's "Against-State-Battle, Climax".
>>
>>155827193
I can understand that being Motobe's point, but I can't understand why he felt the need to explain that to Musashi - nor why he believes that he was "protecting" Musashi in doing all of that.

Does he believe that Musashi is innocent/pure, and shouldn't be killed because of that, or?
>>
>>155827247
Well yes poor choice of words on my part but that's what I meant. I think this ties in with Yujiro calling Musashi "not pure" for wanting attention, as in the fact he was born and raised in a world where strenght was necessary for survival and looked upon by everyone makes him inherently better than modern fighters that do it for the thrill.
>>
>>155827363
I think so. That's why that anon was saying Motobe was wrong since Musashi just stomped the police. But I think Musashi will end up getting himself killed and that's what Motobe wanted to avoid.
>>
>>155827369
So, in that all of the modern fighters don't see an absolute need to win in their first fight because they don't intend to die, and thus don't end up using 100% of their strength?

I'm not so sure about Musashi dying, but he won't be able to attain the recognition he craves that's for sure.

>>155827444
With the exception of Yujiro that goes to warzones for fun and Gaia that is a cover ops assassin, the rest of the entire cast just fight to defeat the opponents, not for survival or to kill them, also in addition in cases like Gouki their Ego requires the opponent to recognize how inferior they are after being defeated, so there's definitely a great difference there.

That was the point of the encounter between gaia and musashi, cover ops shit like his won't work when you are used to live in a constant state of alert because being weak would mean death.

Then the point of Musashi vs Pickle was to show that Musashi really likes cutting up people and that technique > brute force.

So whoa re we left with? The only one left is Oliva, as he is an expert assassin that somehow needs to fight for survival and to keep his "freedom" and he does not play around or tries to sneak up like Gaia.

Then Baki will defeat Musashi.
>>
>>155827578
To then the kanji is "vague" enough so the climax of the fight is between the government and musashi or between the country and musashi, as always itakagi can do whatever the fuck he wants.
>>
>>155827578
>>155827682

Oh and no one will fight in behalf of Japan, the "nation" already lost, as I mention here >>155827654 I think the only two fights remaining for Musashi are with Oliva and with Baki, as I seriously doubt there will be another one with yujiro.
>>
>>155827444
It's something more than that I think, all the top-tier fighters are well prepared to die once they step in a fight. I think what's different is that they have the choice of entering the fight or not.
>>
>>155827654
I like Oliva but what would even be the point? He'd get killed Retsu style.
>>
>>155827759
Agreed. If not worse. But, I'd like to see it.
>>
>>155827832
Well we'd get a couple of good Oliva reactions for our folders but given how Musashi can cut Yujiro and it was shown that the ogre bests Oliva end in his speciality it would be sad. Maybe if Oliva learnt from seeing Motobe in action and resorts to fuckery it could be fun. Maybe tag team with Che?
>>
>>155827716
>all the top-tier fighters are well prepared to die once they step in a fight
I'm not sure that's quite right. Because Retsu and, in a way, Katsumi, both acknowledged that they only *believed* that they were ready to die and weren't really, after losing their Pickle fights. Those who didn't fight Pickle probably have never had such a realization. By that logic, Doppo, Shibukawa, Baki and a few others wouldn't be/aren't steeled to truly die yet. Hell, even Retsu wasn't ready to die in his Musashi fight even though he'd had that post-Pickle realization; he still thought that he'd be able to get up and try again.

I think that "I can try again later" mentality is, at least, a significant part of it.
>>
>>155827759
Oliva has been training for one year seriously after he lost against Baki, if Memetobe could tank a Musashi slap and a slap from yujiro Oliva's muscles should be twice as strong as Pickle's.

Also Oliva knows techniques and he will fight to kill Musashi, not to just to defeat him.
>>
>>155828097
The only one ready to die to give it all is jack because he is suicidal from the very start.

Baki and Yujiro don't really think they can die at the hands of any opponent besides each other, and the rest as well, "just" sportsman.
>>
>>155828139
There's a difference between a strike and a cut. Musashi's hand didn't cut through Motobe's jacket, but his sword managed to tear the thing open. There's no way that he wouldn't be able to cut Oliva.
>>
Guys what if the one to kill Musashi, and the twist of this arc, is a resurrected cyborg Retsu? would Itagaki degrade Retsu like that?

Well then so it ends... and Musashi has not yet had a full fight using the two swords style, I wonder for which opponent is it reserved, so far the only one worth of it was Yujiro and he utterly destroyed it by a massive kick in the balls.
Not Retu, not Pickle, not Motobe were worth of the two sword style even if Musashi admitted a defeat from Motobe.

Is it reserved for Baki?
