oh god X_X;;; Sorry for posting 3 in a row, but it's all mostly one fight, so yeah. Didn't want to break the Hijikata fight more than it already is XD;

chapter 116

Kita: If it's not one thing, it's another. I've heard plenty of excuses from guys like you, who look down at dojo practices. You'll say things like "even though we lost in the dojo kendo competitions, if it's a real fight, we'd win." I'm sick of hearing that. Those are just excuses. Those are all excuses by people who don't practice and don't take things seriously.

Kita: I don't care what you think, but it doesn't matter how many "real" battles you've fought. If you don't practice, you're still going to lose in the end.

Hijikata: Oi, why are your eyes like that?

Kita: There's nothing wrong with my eyes.

Kita: In any case, while you were swinging that big sword of yours around senselessly, we were practicing. So there's no way you'd win.

Hijikata: You really like to argue, don't you. Whatever. My turn. YOU BASTARD CAN SHUT THE HELL UP AND GET A TASTE OF A REAL FIGHT!

Kita: He's still attacking. But it doesn't matter how you attack, as long as you have that big plate, you're still at a disadvantage. If I try to break your plate, you'd have to go on the defensive. I know exactly how you'll move. Come on, this is bait for you.

Kita: What????

Hijikata: I'M SICK OF STUPID AND CONDESCENDING BAITS LIKE THAT! If you really want to try and lure me, you gotta get some expensive cuisine and cover it with mayonnaise.

Hijikata: Right now, I don't care about your baits or whatever. I'M NOT going to be at a disadvantage!

Kita: He's continuously attacking, ack.

Kondo: Aha. With this, there's no way for that guy (Kita) to do anything to Toushi. Offense is the best defense. That's the Toushi I know!

Kita: Do you plan on settling this quickly? But in a place like this , you're just going to end up using energy. Besides, you have a fatal weakness. I've already seen through you. You're just attacking unchangingly. There's no way that kind of method would win.

Hijikata: I DON'T CARE IF YOU'VE SEEN THROUGH ME. I BET YOU CAN'T SEE THROUGH MY FOOT UNDER WATER!

Kita: Even though you said earlier that I can't leave the confines of the rules, but you're the same too, being limited, I mean. We've learned thousands of ways to counter all sorts of attacks. Any move you make, we know exactly how to block it because of practice. That's the difference between someone who's highly trained, and someone like you. You rely on your talents and instincts too much, and don't practice enough.

Shinpachi: KONDO-SAN! We should do something!! This doesn't look good! ...Kondo-san?

Kondo: Sorry, please don't get in the way of that fight. He really hates losing, so if you're going to get involved, he'll be pissed, and you might die. He (Hijikata) knows better than anyone that just whacking and killing things won't get you anywhere. Certainly not winning. Am I right, Toushi?

Kondo: This all happened before we came to Edo...when we were still at that country dojo....

(scene shifts to flash back)

Kondo: There was an annoying and scary guy, running around and fighting all the dojos, beating people up. Everyone was real pissed about that, but nobody wanted to challenge this scary guy one-on-one. So they banded together and went off to see him. That scary guy was truly scary. Even faced with all those people threatening him, he didn't budge. So obviously, he didn't apologize to any of them. He single-handedly beat all of them.

Kondo: But they outnumbered him, and so he didn't win in the end.

Kondo: I was kind of hesitant, but in the end, I brought him back to our dojo. Besides, considering his injuries, he might've died.

(still flash back, but scene shifts to Kondo practicing at the dojo with a young Okita. )

Kondo: 323! 324!!! GAH!! TOO MUCH! THAT'S ENOUGH SWINGS!! I CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE!

Dojo master: WHAT?!?!?!?!? IF YOU'RE THAT PATHETIC, HOW CAN I LEAVE THE DOJO TO YOU!?!?!?!? I'M GONNA DIE SOON!

Kondo: SO?! I'm covered in blood already!! I don't want to keep swinging this stupid piece of wood!

Dojo master: KENDO ISN'T NECESSARILY ABOUT STRENGTH, IDIOT! AS LONG AS YOU PRACTICE, YOU'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN!! Your hands are merely swinging the tree trunk, but you need to control your breathing AND your whole body!!!!! THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT!

Dojo master: SEE!! LOOK AT SOUGO! EVEN THOUGH HE'S TINY, HE CAN DO IT!!! HE REALLY IS A GENIUS!!!

Dojo master: Eh? What the---!

Kondo: This is why we can't get any new recruits.

Kondo: YOu wanna give it a try? Or I guess not, since you're injured. I think you really do have a lot of talent! Both your reaction time and instincts are very exceptional, and that's not something you can learn anywhere. So come on, how about it? Wanna practice with us? Talent alone won't get you anywhere. See, in the end, you couldn't beat all of them, right?

Hijikata: I have no interest in that. Holding a tree trunk isn't going to make me stronger.

Kondo: I guess it couldn't have been helped. He was just a violent guy, after all.

Young Okita: Hey, what's up with that guy, huh? Can I tell him to die?

Kondo: BUt he never left the dojo. He always just sat there and watched us practice. But one day, he left. His injuries weren't healed, though, so I was really worried, and ran off to look for him.

(still flash back, scene shifts to Hijikata )

Random people: I DON'T CARE! WE'RE GOING TO TEAR DOWN THIS DOJO!! THERE'S A RUMOR KONDO'S RECRUITING YOU!?!?? WHAT THE HELL!!!!

Hijikata: I already said I'm leaving. So don't make any trouble for him.

Random people: SO?!?!?! BESIDES, BEFORE WE BEAT UP KONDO, WE SHOULD BEAT YOU UP!!!

Kondo: He was even more terrifying than before. Even though his injuries weren't healed, judging by his movements, they were more self-assured and much more powerful. But by the time I finally snapped out of it, he and I were surrounded by blood and bodies. We were the only two remained standing.

Hijikata: Why'd you come?

Kondo: Well, if you're going to use my dojo's style to fight off other people, that could be troublesome for my dojo, sooooooo.

Hijikata: WHAT. Since when did I joined up with your dojo?!

Hijikata: Geez. I didn't know you were that nice of a guy. I wanted to pay you back for taking me in earlier, but I guess I end up owing you more.

Kondo: You don't have to think that you owe me anything. You're always going to be welcome here. I've already considered you a disciple! All those bloody blisters on your hands? That's proof.

Kondo: Haha. How many times did you practice and swing that big tree trunk? Even I'm not that into it. No wonder your injuries never healed.

Hijikata: Those are not bloody blisters. That was just me getting hit by the department store's automatic doors.

Kondo: That's Hijikata Toushirou for you. He'll never let you know, and he'll never let it slip....but I know

(back to the present, where we see Kita and Hijikata fighting still)

Kondo: Back then...and even now, his entire head's filled with kendo, and how to improve himself.

Kita: You're hiding your sword under water so I can't see how you plan on attacking? PLEASE! THAT'S PATHETIC!! LIKE I'LL FALL FOR THAT!

Kondo: He doesn't like hearing other people saying how he never practices. Maybe compared to Yagyuu's fighting style, his does seem much more rough and unrefined. But, that sword of his is extremely sharp---

Kondo: His sword can cut through anything, even steel.

Shinpachi: HIJIKATA-SAN!!!!!!

Hijikata: Sorry about letting you guys wait.

Kondo: Toushi. Looks like you got injured during the fight too.

Hijikata: Hah? This isn't from the fight. This is from that damn department store's doors.

Oh sephtastic ~! Thanks for the 3-in-a-row. Great translation as usual :ossu

Sorry for the late comments as I haven't been around much. :P I'll help with the page breaks ASAP. BTW, Ea's managing our new website called "urakai.com". I hope to see you there sometime.

If you're alright with my suggested bubbles, then I think your work is pretty much all set for scanlation. We just have to let Belle have a look through. :D

[spoiler text="
PAGE 1
Kita: If it's not one thing, it's another.

I've heard plenty of excuses from guys like you, who look down at dojo practices.

You'll say things like "even though we lost in the dojo kendo competitions, if it's a real fight, we'd win."

I'm sick of hearing that.

Those are just excuses.

Those are all excuses by people who don't practice and don't take things seriously.

PAGE 2
Kita: I don't care what you think,
but it doesn't matter how many "real" battles you've fought.
If you don't practice, you're still going to lose in the end.

*missing Kondo and Shinpachi text, suggestion: How lame is that joke?

*missing Kita, suggestion: Those who think my eyes look funny are the lamest.
(small text: No, you’re lame.)

Hijikata: Oi, why are your eyes like that?
(small text) You’re not only lame, you’re an idiot.

Kita: In any case, while you were swinging that big sword of yours around senselessly,
we were practicing. So there's no way you'd win.

Hijikata: You really like to argue, don't you.
Whatever. My turn.

PAGE 3
YOU BASTARD CAN SHUT THE HELL UP AND GET A TASTE OF A REAL FIGHT!

THE 106TH READING
YOU SHOULDN’T PICK THINGS UP JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE FEELING UPSET.


Kita: He's still attacking.

But it doesn't matter how you attack, as long as you have that big plate,you're still at a disadvantage.

If I try to break your plate, you'd have to go on the defensive. I know exactly how you'll move.

Come on, this is bait for you.

PAGE 4
GAH!
Kita: What????

Hijikata: I'M SICK OF STUPID AND CONDESCENDING BAITS LIKE THAT!

If you really want to try and lure me,
you gotta get some expensive cuisine and cover it with mayonnaise.

PAGE 5
Hijikata: Right now,

I don't care about your baits or whatever.
I'M NOT going to be at a disadvantage!

Kita: He's continuously attacking, ack.

Kondo: Aha. With this, there's no way for that guy to do anything to Toushi.
Offense is the best defense.
That's the Toushi I know!

Kita: Do you plan on settling this quickly?
But in a place like this , you're just going to end up using energy.

Besides, you have a fatal weakness.

PAGE 6
I've already seen through you.
You're just attacking unchangingly.
There's no way that kind of method would win.

Hijikata: I DON'T CARE IF YOU'VE SEEN THROUGH ME.
I BET YOU CAN'T SEE THROUGH MY FOOT UNDER WATER!

Kita: Even though you said earlier that I can't leave the confines of the rules,
but you're the same too, being limited, I mean.

We've learned thousands of ways
to counter all sorts of attacks.

PAGE 7
Any move you make, we know exactly how to block it because of practice.
*sfx: chop!

That's the difference between someone who's highly trained,
and someone like you.

You rely on your talents and instincts too much,
and don't practice enough.

*Missing bubble suggestions: Taste the power of a fighter from the dojo!

Shinpachi: KONDO-SAN!We should do something!! This doesn't look good!

...Kondo-san?

PAGE 8
Kondo: Sorry,
please don't get in the way of that fight.

He really hates losing, so if you're going to get involved, he'll be pissed, and you might die.
*missing bubble suggestion, Shinpachi: But if this goes on, he’s really going to lose!

He knows better than anyone that just whacking and killing things won't get you anywhere. Certainly not winning.

Am I right, Toushi?

Kondo: This all happened ---
before we came to Edo...when we were still at that country dojo....

PAGE 9
Kondo: There was an annoying and scary guy,
running around and fighting all the dojos,
beating people up.

Everyone was real pissed about that,
but nobody wanted to challenge this scary guy one-on-one.

So they banded together and went off to see him.
*missing bubble: I followed them to see what was up.

That scary guy was truly scary. Even faced with all those people threatening him,
he didn't budge. So obviously, he didn't apologize to any of them.
He single-handedly beat all of them.

PAGE 10
But they outnumbered him,
and so he didn't win in the end.

Kondo: I was kind of hesitant,

324!!!

GAH!! TOO MUCH!

Isn’t this just the bark?!?

Kondo: This is why we can't get any new recruits.

PAGE 12
*sfx: thock!
Kondo: YOU wanna give it a try? Or I guess not, since you're injured.

I think you really do have a lot of talent! Both your reaction time and instincts are very exceptional, and that's not something you can learn anywhere. So come on, how about it?
