The last guy from Kensei's group was revealed.
All of Ryozanpaku's masters are going to raid the base where Akira was being "judged". It looks like an apartment complex, aha.

Last disciple in Titan looks promising. He might kill somebody or put them in a state that they have to be saved Kensei or Akisame. Miu finally releasing her ki is interesting here, so does she get to own one these guys. Ryuuto is in the car does he get to make an appearance. It is a very interesting chapter, without even giving thought about what the Masters will face in the Yami compound.
Is that the titan guy? From what I recall the first time titan was seen that guy had long hair. Wouldn't he be the weapon's yomi?
The only time in the past that they fought as a team as been against Master Class fighters. I think it's going to be one on one fights. The bigger question is that if that is true who steps up to fight who?
Well, currently the only proven members of shinpaku/ryozampaku who have shown the sheer skill to be able to handle actual yomi members are kenichi and miu. The actual members of the shinpaku alliance seem perhaps not quite there yet or at least have yet shown to have caught up. Even when takeda fought kenichi I get the impression that kenichi was actually still well above him (he had the slow started issue against someone who could be considered a fast starter). The strongest members in the shinpaku alliance are either takeda, who also has a master, and sigfried who is a genius and back at despair island was supposedly stronger than the entire capoeira team. Freya and kisara are pretty strong but I would question to what extent they could handle a yomi, it just doesn't seem as if they are there.
What would make the most sense is that the new guy fights kenichi. Takeda might have a beef with thor taking in consideration the guy beat him up during the fight with ryuto. Still, I wouldn't buy takeda winning against thor. At a purely physical level thor was perhaps at or above yomi level back then(that is what I gather considering he was able to handle people with actual battle techniques), add in actual technique and you got something quite fearsome.
This was super fast chapter, quite unexpected considering the recent slow progress. Ryozanpaku suddenly invading one of Yami bases, Kenichi, Miu and Shinpaku encountering Kensei's disciples. I think what third guy's eyes are showing is Seidou Goui, and him being able to activate it that easily or maybe even permanently. Awesome fights incoming.

Ahh, I forgot to comment in regards to miu. Interestingly it seems her dou ki thing is still an issue however the approach to control it is actually releasing all of it. I wonder if this will play a part in the upcoming yomi fights.

On another note, why in the world is it so hard to find yami bases to begin with? They usually are colosal structures which basically scream out loud "GOD DAMNED EVIL IS HAPPENING HERE 24/7". Its not like they are hidden or anything, they can usually be seen from huge distances. Its like yami wants them found.
Mangareaders translation doesn't really make sense to me pertaining to Miu's dou ki release compared to the mangainn translation but then again I am quite confused here....is her body unable to keep up with the power of her Dou ki release thats why she's learning muscle mastery? or has she yet to release it that's why she's undergoing Ma's training to do so? I'm not sure which translation makes more sense here...someone help me out!

Yeah the bases shouldn't be hard to find! All you gotta do is look for large buildings in woodlands
I'm not sure that last guy is blind, but I'm more interested in finding out his strength level. This will be a good opportunity for the stronger members of SA to showcase their skills against yomi in a losing effort until Miu and Kenichi step in to battle. As for the masters case....well we know the Saint Fist is still in the mountains, so hopefully the gang will encounter some powerful master class weapon users!

Well, your guess is as good as mine. Anyways, to me the mangainn translation makes more sense. From what I gather what is happening is that her dou ki is finally awakening. The awakening results in an actual increase in strength which is proving to be too great a strain on her body as seen by her bleeding hand. She is actually using more force than what she can handle. I guess ma's training is meant to teach her how to better control her muscles in order to limit or prevent damage. Basically what they are going for is fully awakening her ki and teaching her control.
Updated to Mangastream's translation.
About this guy's eyes: Alexander and Kokin had dark eyes and nothing special came out of it.
^You have a point about that, but the way it was shown looked like it had some meaning to it, who knows.
As I understand, Miu's dou ki is getting too strong for her body and it starts to damage her body. She is undergoing Ma's ying training to strengthen the critical parts and they are going to release her ki fully.
As for Yami bases, I think the reason is that Yami is everywhere. They could be holding a meeting in a building next door. You never know where to look. One of their bases was in American military base even.
On a side note, one thing I noticed in some translations is "Ba" instead of "Ma" Kensei. Anyone can tell if that's because symbols are similar in Japanese or that Ma and Ba sound similar in Chinese?
Come on, cat! A little more!!
I almost cried laughing
As far as the new guys potential blindness, I do think there are a few considerations to make. In particular there are things to consider as to how he is different from koukin.
Koukin did have dark eyes but the pupils and sections are very distinguishable between them. In turn the new guys seems to have his eyes blurred out, he does not have clearly defined eye section. For another, there is this particular comment he made. He kept his eyes closed for no apparent reason for a while, then he opens them and suddenly makes a comment based on seeing "these" things quite well. For me the whole situation is a tad weird.
As far as I'm concerned, these guys are pretty much utterly screwed, new character or not. Miu is there after all, and I'm pretty sure that no Yomi is a match for her at this point aside from, maybe, Kajima, and that's a huge maybe since we don't know much about him at the moment.
But of course she probably won't fight, or there'll be fodder that she takes on or something. I'm sure Takeda will want a crack at Berserker, and maybe Kenichi will end up fighting the new guy for a short period of time.
