Well, go Shioon. We'll see what the tl brings us. Without the tl, I can't really be sure of what exactly is happening; I mean, I can get a sense, but...
It looks like a good chapter though. Sera better not be severely injured.

You know I may be wrong but the reason it seems he is able to use Ki again is because of the BOT or Black Origin Threshold. I really don't see any other explanation other than the fact that when the BOT is used a person's Ki flows in reverse which might explain why that one Murim Doctor checked his pulse and noticed the veins on his neck. If you guys remember, back in Part 1 when Shioon first took the Ilwalsindan his Ki would have a habit of flowing in reverse which would cause those Ki veins on his neck to pop out. Another thing to remember is that the Jin-gi Dan activated the Ki through his body that couldn't flow properly or be activated without a Ki Center. The BOT seems to bypass this because it forces the Ki to flow backwards. In summary I believe that the BOT basically serves as a replacement for his lost Ki Center because it does the same function albeit it does it by having the Ki flow in reverse.
Now that I got my thoughts out of the way I must say I will be very disappointed if what I just said turns out to be true. One of the reasons is that if what I said is true then I really won't be surprised by this development at all because I remember after Part 1 ended that people were saying "Oh the key to mastering the BOT lies in not having a Ki Center" or "Watch Shioon be able to master the BOT because he has no Ki Center and becomes the first master without a Ki Center". Also even though it was stated that a Ki Center can never be fixed by the author and by extension Sera, he sure as hell lead us to believe this what with with Sera saying the Doctor's actions didn't match his words. I mean the author just wasted a lot of time before we finally got to this point and I'm sure if the answer does lie in the BOT then we'll probably then have to go through Shioon trying to master the BOT or in other words starting from square 1 essentially. Sigh.....
I hope that I'm wrong here but until the translation comes out I won't know for certain. I give this chapter a 3.5/5
Edit: Will post my thoughts or changes to thoughts once a-team gets out their translation.
houm.... Sera was crying
anyway, Shioon kicked ass for real... I need some translation.
He gave that cylinder a headbutt, so maybe he was in the BOT and did this to regain full control?
by the one moon munju it looked like his ki center is still broken
i don't think shinwoo lost control of bot he pretty much just head butt to get him out of the threshold
I think Shioon used a bit of BOT in there but that power alone is giving too much stress on Shioon's body the way Shioon is holding his chest i think he feels like his heart is going to explode if BOT don't stop and then he just bang his head on the pipe to stop BOT
i think what will happen next is Shioon will pretty much dominate those SUC minions and Cool Guy Vs Shioon 2 will begin
i think BOT is pretty much the same concept of a Sword less State where in the swordless state you can use your fingers as a sword and in BOT they will see a big increase on STR and then the enemy will think that they are using KI
PS: FrostyMouse Avatar is nasty no offense (i'm eating when reading this thread)
hhaha, his avatar is a punishment set...
I don't want to see Shioon vs cool guy again... with his trainning in the incarnate state and being able to use ki, he should jus pwon cool guy
I need translations before I go to bed!!!
I agree - a tl would be good to have. Curious as to whats been said. The extra day's wait was not too bad.
Good chapter hope Sera doesn't die and watching the Doc get smacked about was fun.
Ahh such bliss.. the raws made me forget about those awesome bondage scenes.. Anyway I hope in the future he can enter "THIS" mode on his own freewill so we dun get to see another crying sera an no more pills, that damn pills.
Holy cow someone else mentioned the door. But that thing was demolished by the kick Shioon gave it. He also looked very surprised when the One Moon Doc took his pulse for his ki center. The last thing I want to note is after he kicked the crap out of the alien doc. He had a lot of chest pain. Do we know or know not (before a translation comes out) that this did not fix his ki center?
Translation is out!
It burns, hmm, that sounds familiar. It totally reminds me of the pill/dance swallowed.
sooo shinwoo has his ki center back ? what a ruff technique making his body aches
To me it seems like Shioon hasn't lost consciousness at all. I guess we'll learn whether his Ki center is fixed after this arc ends. By the way, it was really disappointing to see those big guys get afraid of bunch of kids. I was sure that they were the muscle brought in by the Ilwulmoon guy but it turns out they just wanted to look pretty carrying the first aid kit.
They are a couple of fodder, remember in the first part when shioon almost kill them just burning ki on them? He didn't even know what was happening and the guys were laying on a blood mess.
Any semi relevant murin could avoid a situation like that.
