Mouryou Tower’s 3rd Floor!!
-> RTS Page for Sakigake!! Otoko Juku 261
With Sou Reigen shedding some light in the darkness, Otokojuku has conquered Mouryou Tower's 2nd floor! Yet as the students climb higher into the competition, a showdown is blooming forth for the most peculiar of fighters...
Chp. 261: Mouryou Tower’s 3rd Floor!!
Toramaru: Wh…what was that scream-like thing now……………!?
Togashi: Y…yeah: it truly was from inside the tower!!
A. Kamshin: That scream now was proof of the defeat of Dashirma, the guard of Mouryou Tower’s 2nd Floor……………!! Your allies have splendidly advanced their pieces to the 3rd Floor!!
Toramaru: Yosshaa, great, Momo and the others---!! Ge…get those consecutive victories and knock down those remaining three~~~!!
A. Kamshin: Fuffuffu: doing that isn’t going to be easy. At any rate, the next room is awaiting………!!
Momotarou: It seems this is the door to the 3rd floor.
Momotarou: N!? Something is written here.
(TN: It is in French, pretty much as translated below)
Momotarou: “Only one will enter this room”………!! Th…this is French.
Gobarski: Kukkukku: amusing.
Souketsu & Sou Reigen: !?
Gobarski: Fuffuffu: here you will leave this to us!!
Sou Reigen: Wo…wolves!!
Gobarski: These two are called Romulus and Remus; they’re cuties who should be called my brothers.
(TN: Funny names for the wolves, considering that Romulus and Remus are the name of the brothers who founded Rome and were raised by a she-wolf)
Gobarski: Gahhahaha, so then, let’s go!! It’s written that only one can enter, but it isn’t written that they refuse bringing your own pets!!
Date: It can’t be that those wolves followed us to here………!!
Momotarou: Fu, Gobarski of Siberia: he’s a man from a place where they eat people somewhere, but I’m certain we have a unique, reliable ally!!
Gobarski: What is this: I can’t see anything in here with it being dark again.
Gobarski: And yet, what is that scent!? A sweet fragrance that I can’t even speak of is fully enveloping the room.
Voice: SO THEN, LET’S TURN ON THE LIGHT.
Gobarski: A…flower-bed…………!! Wh…what ex…exactly is this………!
“Feminine Man”: Hohoho, have you just been seduced by this!?
Giger: My name is Giger!! I’m the guardian of this very “Room of the Flower Garden”!!
Gobarski: What---!! The “Room of the Flower Garden”---!
Giger: Hoo, you’re a rare wolf-user…………!!
Giger: But that’s misfortunate for you.
Giger: From here you will come to be shown the true hell of this world.
Gobarski: Fuffuffu: what are you letting out for some unknown reason? Generally, I’m disgusted in this room, which is like an incarnation of a shoujo manga as well as cross-dressing faces like yours, and yet I have no choice on this~~~~!!
Gobarski: Go brothers! You should have him fully realize the terror of Rousouken!!
(TN: Reminder: “Rousouken” = “Blue-Wolf Fist”)
Romulus & Remus: Gao!!
Romulus & Remus: Gau!!
Romulus & Remus: Garuru!!
Gobarski: Gahhahaha, good, my brothers---!! It’s a matter of time for you to bite through the wind-pipe of that cross-dresser who is just running to escape----!!
Giger: Hohhohho: It seems the time has come to know the terror of this “Room of the Flower Garden”.
Gobarski: N~~~!? What’s wrong, my brothers!! You’ve suddenly returned back………!
Momotarou: Wh…what---!! Gobarski’s being attacked by the wolves----!!
Gobarski: Th…this is---!!
Gobarski: Wh…what exactly is wrong with you, brothers---!! Uoo!! I…I’m not the enemy; he’s…over there---!
Giger: Hohhohho: have you come to understand the terror of this “Room of the Flower Garden”!?
Giger: The flowers that are profusely blooming in here are Morgue-Poppy Grass!! Those wolves that have fully inhaled that scent into their chest now have come to not know even who their master is!!
(TN: Usually with “items” like this, I just keep it in Japanese. However, this item, which is in Japanese “Morugukeshi-Sou”, has literal translations and a usage of katakana that forced me for once to fully translate it. [Though I both feel good and bad for the literal translation of the “Great Chime Yell” a long time back but kept it for consistency]:
-“Morugu” = “Morgue”
-“Keshi” = “Poppy”
-“Sou” is an indication of a type of “Grass” and is used for various types of plants as an ending, including “Zassou” or “Weed”, “Hourensou” or “Spinach” and even is the last kanji when translating “Tabako” or “tobacco”)
Momotarou: Morgue-Poppy Grass!?
Morgue-Poppy Grass (Poppy Family)…
In general, the narcotic drugs that are extracted from plants are many, but among these the Morgue-Poppy Grass, which is produced only in the Kangaroo region in the northern part of Central Asia, is famous for its intense hallucinatory effect. What has come to seemingly been known widely about this is that in 1328 A.D., in a chance where the Kangaroo Kingdom was being attacked by the Tangiroo Kingdom, General Puruchaka lured the enemy army to a flower-bed where there was much Morgue-Poppy Grass and the enemy attacked their fellow soldiers, annihilating them.
Incidentally in the present, the cultivation of Morgue-Poppy Grass has been severely banned by authorities.

(TN: Another really silly name here: yes they are the “Kangaroo Kingdom”. The other kingdom in this name is “Tanjiroo”: while it typically translates into “Tangier” (which is a notable city in Morocco), I intentionally had to screw the name up to make it match with the rival kingdom)
Gobarski: Guwaa!! Ce…cease---!! St…stop this---!
Giger: Hohhohho: the sense of smell of dogs and wolves is may hundreds of times that of humans; naturally the effect would be faster. Anyhow, this will affect even you. It won’t affect me due to training.
Giger: Well, how about if you deal with those wolves? If you don’t, you yourself will be killed!!
Gobarski: Nuuu, y…you---!!
Romulus & Remus: Gyawa!!
Gobarski: Ooh!! Wh…what ca..can I say………!!
Giger: Hohhohho: right, that’s fine. How is it!? The feeling of taking down your own brothers by your own hands!!
Gobarski: Uoo---!! Fo…forgive me, brothers---!!
Giger: Well, we don’t have time to mourn them forever. There isn’t a way to return those wolves to consciousness!!
Gobarski: I…can’t forgive you!!
Gobarski: III can’t forgive you---!!
Giger: Hohhohho, it’s regrettable but this match is already done. The poison of the Morgue-Poppy Grass is taking effect on your body!!
Gobarski: Uga!! My…body is numbed………!!
Giger: Hohhohho: I will borrow your knife. Because now I will present ease to you………!!
Giger: Wh…what is this knife…………!!
Gobarski: Ri…right: it’s a trick knife used in magic!! You…can’t kill people with that, of…of course wolves neither……!!
Giger: Huh!! Wh…what’s the meaning of this……!?
Gobarski: Do…don’t you know? I projected a human drama. It…it was so I could wake up my brothers from the poison of the Morgue-Poppy Grass……….!!
Gobarski: It…it was a cloth I put on the wolves, who pretended to die……….!! It…it was with that………!!
Giger: With…with that…………!?
Gobarski: Gahhahha: That was my fundoshi~~~!! They sniffed the intense smell of that fundoshi, which hasn’t been washed once in three years; because there isn’t a person who won’t awaken from that!!
Date: Mo…Momo, it’s as you said……!! He…he truly is a unique, reliable ally……!!
TN: Yeah...that...was an ending. Somehow or another Gobarski, in this one wacky chapter, has proven himself to be a pure Otokojuku character considering...well, who else would decide to break an opiate's hold on himself and his "brothers" using...a stinky fundoshi? In a way his move was both brilliant...and seemed to be more of something Togashi or Toramaru would come up with than someone who was on one of the most powerful teams in the Daibukai. (thus explaining probably why Momo had no comment with how that battle ended) This was a peculiar chapter and an interesting fight...but sort of like the last fight, it just felt way too fast considering all that was going on. The chapter felt like it would have worked better with two chapters: one to sort of lead up to the two wolves (yeah...I have no idea how they were in Antarctica either) getting "mixed up" or "killed" by Gobarski, and then the other for the whole resolution with the "fundoshi" and Romulus and Remus taking their revenge. Weirdly enough, though, I've come to notice a strange pattern so far with the Mouryou Tower fighters: not one of the fighters as of yet seems to have been a pure kenpou expert in any way. I mean, so far all we have are a figure skater, a guy who fights in the dark and a guy who uses a field of poppies like he's the Wicked Witch of the West. I sort of hope the last two Mouryou Tower fighters...well, have some sort of kenpou!
