The afterword was interesting, seems even the Ran and Novik fight was considered easy for Viole and the Mad Dog will be Viole's proper fight, which was to be expected I guess. Also, popular character appearing next chapter, I'm thinking the Raleader
I'd have thought the Mad Dog would be a bloodthirsty psycho but he avoided fighting anyone and even gave the guy a warning beforehand. Who knows, maybe he turns out to be some sort of anti-hero? He does want to bring down FUG after all.

I also wonder about the role of Rak. He's not participating in the Workshop tourney, but he's not a character that let himself cross his arms and just look the big action. Sure Koon has thought about a task for him to do, in his plan to beat FUG and rescue Ban.
I want to see the fight between Yeon and Quatro. But I would like Yeon wouldn't have took the perspective of 'be careful with your fire'. Anyhow, I bet Quatro is going to teach her some lesson about how to domain and control your own fire, and that would happen in this fight.
Quatro could probably teach her a thing or two, but I don't think Yeon would want to become anything like him. A fight would be pretty interesting though I doubt we'll see that next chapter.
I'm also taking a liking to Chang's character, seems his interaction with team Wangnan meant something to him. Wouldn't be surprised if he joins their team.
Yeah, I'm not saying that chapters should never be complained about but I honestly don't see what was so bad about this one, there are so many implications we could draw from it.

People have the right to complain if they don't like the current chapters & they have the right to post. I don't get why mangahelpers is so narrowminded about that.
Anyway I don't dislike this kind of chapter as long as there are some comical scenes. The "yolo" comment & the overall attitude of that fire lunatic made me laugh.
In my opinion, SIU is currently following too many characters and because he keeps jumping from one to another, the story is not progressing that much. SIU needs to remove some characters around Viole after this workshop.
For example, from the whole "Wangnam gang", only wangnam & the yeon girl are IMO interesting (and maybe prince). I don't give a fuck about goseng or miseng for example & I really think those two should be written off. Akraptor is your prototype "cool mysterious guy" who isn't that useful to the story. Everything we have to know about Horang is known. So, when the real team is formed again, aside from wangnam & the yeon girl (and again maybre prince), I don't want anyone else from that team involved in the future.
I actually wasn't as deceived as Los because compared to him, I wasn't expecting much informations on Mad Dog's background.
I was pretty sure that the only informations we would get about Mad Dog were going to be the sames ones we got from SIU's blog a few weeks ago.
What i wanted to see was the faces of the best regulars and their behavior toward Mad dog and i feel satisfied because SIU really showed us how the likes of Androssi, Anak, Viole and Chang see Mad Dog.
He seems as much as mystery to us than to them and that really surprised me. This guy seems to be on a completely different level. I mean even Androssi who most of the time doesn't care about anyone felt like watching the game and was surprised.
And his eyes, damn his eyes, you could feel the hatred. His name suits his well, he's almost as scary as a pitbull.
I'm happy that Viole will finally get some competition.
I wonder who's the famous character that is going to show up next week? I get the feeling that it's going to be our dear Yuri Ha Zahard
Also Chang was willing to fight Viole cause he never fought him before and hasnt seen him go all out, he was going really easy on Quatro plus the only thing Chang saw was the 5 rooms.... I bet he was pretty confident when he first encountered mad dog too
Anyways, he said that the story should pick ups in the next few weeks and many things are going to happen so you should look forward to that.
Also as for the characters, I actually disagree. I think one of ToG's charm is the fact that SIU makes so many characters important and he really tries to showcase them and give them a meaning as well as a good background. I think it really changes from all those other popular mangas, where the story follows only 2/3 real characters and everyone gets bored of them for example: Sasuke and Naruto are really hated right now even though they're the main protagonists and so on. Having that many characters really fullfills everyone's taste, it gives that little plus to the enjoyment of the story.
Imagine not liking the few important characters of ToG, that would be lame right.

It's clear that FUG did something to piss him off. Control him or something. Being a dog in that pit is the same as being a slave, i guess that would explain his hate. Besides, FUG clearly did something to him because he stopped participating in tournaments but he did in this one because FUG was obviously in it too!
Hey, i liked the chapter, SIU has improve himself with the enough time for any battle and was for the good of the next phase.
Yeon has to lose her fear to fire. Quaetro is awesome and creepy as always. Chang has a gentleman kind that we didn't knew he had. Love is in the 4th group's air. Reflejo is Baam's room, what a frightning thing. Mad Dog is such a independant guy, he don't care about Baylord or FUG but his team and SIU promised a hard battle of Viole with him.
Popular chapter next week? Start the bets, guys! I put my 45% on Quant, 45% on Rak and 10% on Laure. I win or die here
It's not like seeing someone use 5 rooms is something small, it was pretty much unheard of for an E regular to be capable of that, yet he still believed that he could potentially beat Viole or at least escape with his life, something which doesn't seem to be the case when he encountered the mad dog.
