Oh seems like he threw a jab towards his face, and he kept his eyes open the whole time, and it appears to shocked him. then a surrender
i just began reading this in the morning from chapter 1 - 50 and it was awesome i like it because of the similarities of the protagonist to Shioon from the breaker :P
Speculation for the next chapter:
Near-Death Tirggered Super Ultimate God of Rage Mode or clinically dead for thirty seconds. Hell, why not both?
haha the cliche beserker? well i dont mind what he does, as long as he beats in the red heads face. the releases feeeel so slow, damn you weekly release! maybe i should do a batch read again
GYAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! They just cuddle up next to him and fell asleep on the floor!! And the nurse is all like "wha?" Funniest thing I've seen all day!!

That was great!
My favorite panel of the week I think. And probably one of my favorite "scary faces" of all time.
"THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS IMPOSSIBLE!!"
Big brother instinct is over 9000.
Dal Dal is seeing hearts!

The biggest issue with the series is a lack of direction. Although there were some issues before, the series has flitted around apparently aimlessly since Jae Gu beat Kim Hangyul.
It was important to note the change in the rules of the Wild League in that the weapons competition has been consolidated with the normal tournament, but the event battle was largely pointless minus some comedy.
The whole mafia battle was even more pointless and drawn out. If I had to find a purpose for that whole sequence, I'd say it would be to remove Jae Gu's naivete about fights, but him being naive was kind of ridiculous in the first place. This is a character who said "life is a war" and was picked on for years. I understand that him fighting back is a major change in his personality and that he is still generally a nice guy, but while that might mean that he isn't going to be ruthless, he would definitely expect his opponents to be.
While there is still the Wild League going on, I was expecting some hint of the direction the series is now going to take in chapter 71, but alas, there was none.
The protagonist is the weakest point so far but I feel like he's starting to come along, even if it isn't quite as fast as I would perfer.
I've read this manga for probably the last 45 chapters now. It's decent, but nothing much happens. The fights and the comedy are entertaining, but the series itself is pretty lacking.
The series is enjoyable for what it is, but it could be better without a lot of major changes.
Specific things I find lacking:
-Series direction. Already explained, but the series has wandered around for awhile and I have no idea where it is going. Is Jaegu going to become a Kenichi character and learn all the various different types of fighting styles? Why continue to fight after the Wild League preliminaries? He accomplished his goal of showing his good side to his siblings, but he still has the issue of needing to save energy for school and work rather than fighting. Are we going to see anything more with his mother? (Now might actually be a perfect time for her to make an appearance, especially if she can destabilize his relationship with the girls.)
-Song Jaegu's motivation for "changing". It is a lot harder to make pacifists interesting, so I understand why he was made to decide to fight, but I thought he was a lot more interesting before that. Bash Kim Hangyul in the head with a brick and leave him to die in an alley? Sure, but not get into a ring and fight for no real reason.
-Too much stating of how badass Dal Dal, Lee Moonyoung, and Queen are and not enough of them actually showing it. The prohibition on fighting outside the ring has lead to them making threatening statements and scary faces without any real follow through. The Wild League will likely solve this, but there could have been a touch more sparring early in the series.
-Not enough school action. Other than being eye raped by the women in the school, Jaegu seems to have almost zero interaction with anyone other than the main 3 female characters. I understand wanting to keep the cast of characters small because doing otherwise means characters going long periods without face time (see every series ever), but I'd have liked more scenes like when he was in class being bothered by the girls during break or them changing in the classroom for PE. It doesn't have to be much, just enough to remind me that he is actually going to school.
