Yeah the dolls were holding her hostage. Normally fiends can’t be turned into dolls but I guess that doesn’t apply to corpses.

It's like that classic poem.

My tough saw thrusteth sure,
My strength is as the strength of ten
Because I wanna touch some boobs.

Now, is Quanxi alive or not? If she's half as tough as Denji she'd be fine, but the doll transformation thing seemed to be contagious.

Tune in tomorrow next week to find out!

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!

living hybrids cant be dolled, or living fiends. the fiends should be back on earth anyway since they died in hell

Everyone’s so busy trying to outsmart Makima that they forget that they also have to be ready to outstupid Denji.

I mean, not that they could if they tried, because Denji has the Nobel Prize in stupid, but still.

Denji is an idot, but he knows he's an idiot. It's the Barbarian's Riddle in a nutshell.



A truly idiotic hero would have tried to set up electric lights, or lure the arkness devil into the daylight, or keep the fight going for 12 hours. Denji just becomes a lightsource.

It's also the more accurate translation, and a straightforward one on top.
I can't follow the official translator's choice. Was it too dumb for them?

It's like "Daddy in the East" for Kaguya-sama: You know somewhere in your brain that it's kinda wrong, but goddammit, there's a strong-as-hell charm in that goof-up. The official translation kinda makes sense if you remember what she told Master Kishibe about that one news anchor she fancied.

Ok, that makes it kind of consistent, even if she doesn't use the exact same phrase in the original.

Dang, makes sense coming from the creator of Fire Punch that the art looks even better when everything is on fire

Also, from Santa’s reaction it seems more and more likely that the reason the chainsaw devil is so powerful is because other devils fear it


Awesome action this chapter

I like how the panels are perhaps the most metal thing I've ever seen while the dialogue is the least metal thing ever seen. It reads like dialogue between a DM and the stubborn paladin player who just keeps fighting. And it's so perfect.

I think the astronauts keep the "most metal" title for me, but Denji's definitely putting in the effort.

(I'd say that Denji's unusually horny for a paladin, but... I've read my share of writing on courtly romance stories.)

I like the small detail of Santa mounting fear and her slowly realizing how Denji is nothing if not entrepreneurial in his pursuit of divorcing himself of anything but the most important things in life to give a gently caress about. Also holy poo poo that was killer!

Denji is like a loud, on-fire Terminator. He's got a goal, and will keep taking the most direct course to accomplishing it. He's not going to give up and he's really hard to actually kill.

If anything he's drawing more power from her growing fear as the fight drags on. He was chucking a car and shrugging off fiery explosions by the end.
