It's been a while, so let's have some more notes!

The Fuuchouin use a bunch of confusing terms that I probably should have researched a little better before this. I'm going to be more consistent with them from now on.

1. Souke (宗家) - This term can refer to the main branch of a group of families/clans, and it can also refer to the head of the main branch family as an individual. So Kazuki's family is the "souke," and Kazuki's dad is also the "souke."  I'm gonna translate the first sense as "Head Family" and the second as "Clan Head."

The Head Family is generally determined by the lineage of the eldest son. This is why Kazuki, being the eldest son of the Head Family, is considered the successor to the Fuuchouin. If you read Naruto, the Hyuuga have the same sort of heirarchy. Hinata is part of the Heady Family like Kazuki, and Neji is part of a branch family like Saizou.

The issue with Yohan in the volume 31 flashback was that they wanted the Kokuchouin to take over as the new Head Family, and for Yohan to become the new Clan Head. But Kazuki's dad wouldn't allow it (because Yohan's a fuckin' psycho and all).

2. Soushu (宗主) - This is the leader of a family/clan/etc. But I think it's a term that's only used between the leaders of the branches themselves and not by lower members. I'm not 100% on it, really. As I understand it, Kazuki's dad and Saizou's dad would both call each other "Soushu", but Saizou's dad calls Kazuki's dad "Soushu-sama" because Kazuki's dad is from the head family. I just translate it as "Lord" for lack of a better English word.

3. Ura / Omote (裏/表) - Roughly, "ura" means "hidden/underside" and "omote" means "public/top side." The Fuuchouin has its "Ura" side (the Ura-Fuuchouin) which stays hidden and does nasty things in the shadows, and everyone else is on the "Omote" side. I don't translate "Ura" since it pops up so much, but "Omote" I translate into "Mainline" because I think it's clearer that way.

3. Ougi (奥義) - Most of the names for the bowstring arts techniques Kazuki and Saizou use are "chuu-den" - "middle grade." The dragon and firebird techniques they used in this chaper were "ougi-den," which I called "master grade." "Ougi" means like "secret teachings," but in this context it implies like a secret super technique that only a real badass can use.

4. In this chapter Kazuki and Saizou use the honorific "-dono" with each other. I translated it as "master" (*gasp* I know! You'll have to deal Cool).

Shit. That was a lot. Hopefully that's it for a while. Heh.

Hey, couple notes for chapter 1 of volume 34:

1. Ginji's joke line "Don't they say blood is thick as an otter?" I changed it to fit the joke. He really says "Don't they say hemorrhoids hurt worse than athlete's foot?" It's a silly pun. The lines sound similar in Japanese:

Chi wa mizu yori mo koi (Blood is thicker than water)

Ji wa mizu-mushi yori mo itai (Hemorrhoids hurt worse than athlete's foot)

2. When Akabane shows up the background text is the song Kagome Kagome (I kinda fucked up the translation - got lazy QQ). It's sorta like the Japanese version of ring around the rosy, but there's kid who sits in the middle of the ring with a blindfold on, and he has to guess which kid is standing behind him when the song ends. Also, like ring around the rosy, it sounds kinda creepy out of context like this.

Wooooooo. Peace!

I'm still trying to understand Ban.  During the first Grand Prix battle he used magic, but then it was never shown again.  Will this happen to his arm as well?

Let's try reviving this thread! Grin

[spoiler]I'm so glad it's finally been revealed what's the true purpose of Brain Trust and what their goal is. Of course, I suspect that there is more material on this matter to come, but what's been revealed in the last couple of chapters is nonetheless satisfying and shocking at the same time. The creators of this series have definitely been inspired by The Matrix, at least in the way humans will be controlled and living "fake lives". Actually, it also kind of makes me think of the on-going anime No.6, which also touches upon this subject.

The ogre battle is coming up, but I'm sure the invincible GB will find a loophole of some sorts to make them retrieve the lost time and bonds they came for. Tongue I have an idea of the identity of the person Masaki whispered to Maria might be, but I'll leave that for the future chapters to take care of.

Speaking of Masaki, the reunion he had with Hevn at the very end of the previous volume was super sweet and a very fitting closure to the book. Kiss
