This chapter was pretty predictable. With an enemy that bizarre and frightening he should have opened the chapter the way he did. Unfortunately it was pretty boring looking. Maybe I'll have a different opinion once the scanlations come out, but this chapter was very "meh"

Edit: OK, I read the scanlation. Too many new characters LOL. Just how big is the Osakan team?! Sheesh. I don't really know what Katou's going to do, but that trusty Y-Gun of his isn't going to do Jack **** against that thing.

This chapter wasn’t that bad really, I think Katou would notice that there are people stuck on that alien and won't try to use the Y-gun till he helps as many as he could before killing the monster. And Anzu would try to help the little kid from the small alien just to get a few points. :P

Man those Osaka's are quite a dumb lot now are they! XD

Lol hisshou, I wonder what katou is gonna do about that thing.

Why didnt the guy with the long hair just use the huge gun the black guy used to make the alien into a puree?

Im hoping katou wont get sliced in half, thatd be kinda boring. I donnt think he will try to get everyone off the monsters back but he might just pop the head off & see about them later.

XD.

Where is the fun if you kill it in one blow..is like Resident Evil 4 for example, would you use the "Infinite Rocket Launcher" with Salazar for example, and kill him in one shoot, or would you use your normal guns, and kill him in a very long and entertaiment way?

Maybe Kato would use one the Strong Weapons...but the problem is the people on the back of that Yokai...if he use that gun, they would die too.

HisshouBuraiKen that thing in the head of that frog...i think that is an "original" idea of Hiroya...just like the "Giant" Do ro Ta bo....what do you think.

well this chap was good,now to wait for two weeks.

well i expected more from those sadists,but they did none ,wonder how they got those weapons,maybe Nishi style.

when Katou went to fight that frogys dady i got chills,Katou is gonna kick some ass now.

Still I mean the girl did say theyd kill the alien slowly but they just ran away. The guy had the huge gun so he couldve used it after he knew he couldnt fight it with normal weapons. Makes perfect sense. Im more of a MGS person, use whatever powerful weapons you have so you can beat the level & move onto the next one. Then come back & do it over again for a better score/ in a harder mode.

Well if he used it to blow off the aliens head it should be fine. Plus those people looked like ants on the aliens back. Also he had the Y-gun so he could just use it to capture the alien since you have to capture it first & then use another trigger to send.

The big aliens isnt the frogs daddy he is the thing with the tail, check the 249/250 thread. Me too I was hoping theyd do something good, I wonder if they know how to use the power up with the suit. Why not catch the tail? unless it would rip you in half -_-.

Lol, the thing didnt even do anything.

With the amount of monsters in this mission, that is not even the least probable theory.

I wonder if the old guy or katou is gonna kill the frog cause it still has the kid with those vine thing from its head.

Anyone know what pyonta is/ The kid kept saying it.

It was not in their plans being catched in that way. The Osaka members have a lot of overconfidence, and that is their weak point.

They dont see the difference between a strong Alien and a weak Alien, until the Alien kills more than one of their Team...i do not know if is because the drugs or is because the mission that they had were too easy.

They dont use the Weapons too well either(well, Kei and Togo were the only ones who used the X-Shotgun in a very appropriate way), those Guns are Long-Range guns and they use them too close to operate their potential..

I dont think that the Y-Gun is going to be able to catch that Yokai, maybe if he breaks the concrete that mantains the Alien catched(The ropes are conceted to the floor), the Alien would be able to free itself.

I think that is a way of saying "cute animal"...

Still looking the name of that Yokai, i think that i am close now.

well i think that girl will kill Pyonta then Katou will fight him then he will fall back from him and the realizes that hes next to that super gun,takes him and kills him in an instant,true thing.

Or Katou uses his strenght and is going to destroy him with his own hands.Man i just wish Kei was here with Katou,they make an awesome due.

I am a bit dissapointed with team Osaka, they are just getting killed in stupid ways. Maybe they already have 1 million points and thus, don´t give any importance to it but still, their performance is far from impressive. I still haven´t seen anyone in their team who could stand a chance against Kaze or the psychic guys...not to mention against Kurono.

Maybe it´s just what 2ndKurono said and they´ve been having easy missions up ´till now.

"Pyonta", as far as I can tell, is kind of a generic pet-type name. A google image search turned up frogs, cats, squirrels, and some kinda weatherman.

I think "Pyonta" might have indeed been an original because I still haven't found anything on it.

But, have you seen that dude who evaded the attack of Ami-Kiri, Naked and Drugged(and very tired, you know why..)?

i think that some of them(black dude, bald guy, the Gantz bike one, etc..) are very good even drugged...but they would be much better without the drugs..

njt that frog in your signature is hypnotizing me...so many frogs...

Oh yeah, he's gonna be the next Kurono. Not as good though, Katou's too nice. He'll probably stop in the middle of killing the huge thing to ask if it'll just surrender.

"How many times have you gotten 100 points?" "Never."
Man, all possible doubts about Katou's badassery have flown out the window after that line. He is so devoted to getting his friend back that some Kurono-esque courage has rubbed off on him. That's as ballsy as saying you just play a doctor on TV and then performing open heart surgery. I think this mission will last about another 5-8 chapters before we find out whether they score the two teams together. Or they at least start on the bosses. I hope we get an update on MR and Takeshi soon.

or he will only send him to who knows where,but my theory is this he will use that super gun.Cause he killed before he will do it now to.

After a lot of research, my final conclusion about this "Frog" Yokai is that it is a:

Koro-pok-guru

Some information about them:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koro-pok-guru

They are in fact, little creatures, there arent very much information about them, so Hiroya could just make an original design about them.

At this moment i think that two of them have appeared:

The little froggy:

http://img128.imageshack.us/img128/970/img017cr0.th.jpg (http://img128.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img017cr0.jpg)

An a little rat(well...this one appeared in the 248 poster):

http://img75.imageshack.us/img75/5757/248posterqj2ev8.th.jpg (http://img75.imageshack.us/my.php?image=248posterqj2ev8.jpg)

And the Giant one, i think is a kind of Ushi-Oni, A Negoro-no-ushi-oni(mixed with some characteristics of other Kind of Ushi-Oni):

http://img123.imageshack.us/img123/233/111057zb9.th.jpg (http://img123.imageshack.us/my.php?image=111057zb9.jpg)

Still, he have some characteristics very original about it,i mean, the ability of mantain people sticked to his back could be related to this:

Sometimes this ushi-oni is thought to be the husband of the yōkai called nure-onna, as she sometimes emerges from the sea and tricks people into holding her "child" right before the great ox-demon attacks. The baby becomes stuck to the victim's arms and grows extremely heavy, making it harder for them to get away when the ushi-oni rushes hungrily out of the ocean.

And well, that Tail is obviosly related to the sea.

The people stuck on it's back remind me of a mudpuppy, or a certain species of frog that raises its young on its back.

Well, there is a Yokai that looks identical to a Mudpuppy...Just wait a little and i will show you..

though the two monsters (the small froggy and his elder brother) were quite funny, this chapter left me a little disappointed:
first of all: i finally want to see the three bosses fighting. nurarihyon and tengu seemed to be in a quite baaad mood in every picture shown. i bet they can't wait to kill someone of the hunters. i think after the new monster and the froggy thing are killed, there will be only a few monsters AND a few guys from the osaka team left. so that'll mean: TOKYO-TEAM VS. NURARIHYON & CO.
but i think that will only happen in 1-2 chapters.

my prediction for the next chapter: katou will try to kill monster, but he'll screw it up because of the people in it's back. but i think he'll survive although, saved by someone less moral anc cooler than him, like anzu.

on the other side, there is still a character who hasn't shown up in the 2nd phase: Mr Nishi. i'm sure he is hidden somewhere, waiting till the good chance to use the new powerful weapon from some of the funny, but dead, osaka-guys. i bet he can't resist.

2ndKurono
June 10, 2007, 07:32 AM
^ yeah Nishi might show up to save Katou if hes in trouble and take one of those sadists weapons,yeah that could be true.the chaps is coming soon cant wait,Nishi should be shown in ths one for sure.

I wouldn't bet on the issue coming too soon. It goes on sale on the 14th, but chapter 250 was never scanned, so we might be in for quite the wait.

GAT-X252
June 10, 2007, 07:49 PM
The 250 was scaned a few days ago, look in Tokyotosho.

I think too that we might wait a few days for the 250..

In Resident Evil 4 there is a Boss called "Del Lago", it is a giant sized Mudpuppy..and his tongue is exactly like the tongue of the giant Yokai of the 250, look:

http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/5278/05ra0.th.jpg (http://img530.imageshack.us/my.php?image=05ra0.jpg)

Maybe Hiroya took that idea from there.

June 10, 2007, 08:26 PM
Eh, that's not impossible, but a tentacle-like tongue isn't that unique of an idea where it HAS to be derivative of something.

2ndKurono
June 11, 2007, 01:16 AM
nah the tongs dont even match,yokais tongue is like tenticales and that ones is like who knows what.

They are tentacles, it is not a good angle but i fighted that thing and they are tentacles.

Now it is very probable that it is a "Hanzaki"..if this guy blows up in half and is still alive, it will confirm that Hiroya likes changes.

xi0
June 12, 2007, 03:03 AM
It may have Hanzaki like qualities, but it's too different to be one. It looks too mammal-like.
