Chapter 66: Rage

That's some quality villainy, not going to lie. At least Yoshiko's mostly okay?

I'm glad Sawada gets to fight after all. And that he's actually strong. It feels like he's been treated as such a joke character would be lame if he got taken out in one punch by Julius or whatever.

I like that they threatened her business and not her immediate personal safety / health. This is a tournament of competing CEOs, after all.

Finally caught up to chapter 66, series owns and it's a great combo of comedy gold and brutality.

By the way that was the last chapter of volume 8 so we'll probably get the omake next which is about Inaba and his CEO when they were kids.

New omake chapter is out and it is indeed about Inaba and his CEO when they were kids. - http://kissmanga.com/Manga/Kengan-Ashua/Vol-008-Ch-066-005?id=369576

Also, some 4-koma at the end which are utterly hilarious.

Kid, don't threaten me. There are worse things than death, and uh, I can do all of them.


Yo as brutal as this series is, the little relationship things are super heartwarming and make everything own that much more. I know it's been said a lot but drat do I enjoy the slice of life of this setting and the CEOs/Fighters

Also can't wait for the Kure clan sniper to crossover into the other series

The thing that separates this from a lot of other fightmans manga is that except for a couple of rear end in a top hat characters the fighting generally stays in the ring. Like two people can beat each other nearly to death and then in the next issue they'll be sitting sipping mojitos next to each other in their bandages. It rules.

I actually kind of like the guy who says he needs no techniques. I hope he comes back after his defeat (as is this series' modem operandi) so he can defeat more fighters with flexing.

Being able to block attacks that should break your bones by simply flexing certain insanely overdeveloped muscle groups is a technique in and of itself, so he's kind of a hypocrite.

You have been a most worthy adversary, but in every game, there are winners and there are losers. And as you know, in this game, losers get robotizicized!

Oliva's wounds were only superficial, everything healed up after he ate dinner.

And Julius might be strong, but he lacks Oliva's sophisticated palate:
