Ehh... I'm so damn stuck on this pun. In the end I decided NOT to translate it, but I still have to write translation notes. The "rouga" pun is pretty much the primary literary device of the entire chapter, so there's no single page I can refer you to. It would be nice if someone could read through the entire chapter (raw), and think about the "rouga" pun for a second.
I know what it means, but I have no idea how I'm supposed to explain this in my notes. Explanation help required ^_^
This is the reason why my 414 translation has been sitting in Rush HQ for a long time, I'll make it public once this is cleared up.
I don't know if the joke can really be translated considering it's being inserted into a basic piece of grammar (お前の蹴りなど効かんと言っと狼牙！ and そんなわけねぇだ狼牙！among others).
Perhaps some sort of wolf-like howling sound inserted into their speech when that line shows up? Other than that it's difficult to insert "wolf fang" into a sentence without people getting confused (like when the script came out and poor Ocean among others had to explain to people that it was just a simple joke).
hmm I'm stumped on this as well ... I'll dream about it and get back to you tomorrow night (putting it in the back of the mind to get thought out hehe)
