Some background that's great... that damn rabbit like guardin saved him? Mmmh interesting. Can't wait for the translation
Horyang and Cassano are living ignition weapons.
They were abandoned in the middle area as a baby.
Horyang followed Viole to see if Viole is the same as he is.
Since Horyang's about to leave, he's going to check.
He asks Viole to show the thing.
from batoto's LaFa
Waa *slurp* itshere itshere itshere SCANLATION!!! haa haa
Hmm, the true enigma (Headon) appears... and Viole vs Horyang, nice!
Okay. So Horyang was the real "Devil of the Right Arm," but the "Devil of the Right Arm" that we know is actually Cassano who has been claiming that he was the "Devil of the Right Arm" to gain Horyang's attention.
So they are living ignition weapons... Horyang on his right, and Cassano on his left.
That blue thing... I guess that's the special shinsoo? or maybe a shinheuh?
"God of LOL" true to his username's meaning on batoto, I laughed like crazy after reading what he wrote...
H ==> Hatsu
C ==> Cassano
Now we know why Hatsu lost...Originally Posted by God of LOL

I didn't think that I'd see a PS3 in ToG. :P
Quite a good looking chapter, especially how the whole treatment thing was explained.
I don't read Korean, but it seems to imply that the "treatment" was only originally going to be given to Cassano, but then when Cassano was upset, the nurse agreed to give it to Horyang as well. I wonder if that means that they had thought that Horyang had failed. I could be completely wrong, however. :P
I found it interesting that the dots on Horyang's suit separate and seem to channel the power of the Right Arm of the Devil.
This "living ignition weapon" thing is quite curious. I want to say that there should be some adverse effects to having special shinsoo or a shinhueh implanted into you. Assuming that Baam's "lobster" is a living ignition weapon as well, maybe there aren't any adverse effects, as we haven't seen any. Baam already had amazing shinsoo resistance (but that could be from being Zahard's son, if he is, or some other thing such as being a creation of Macseth, or some unexplained thing), and having a living ignition weapon should even grant you more, so that should mean that you have more resistance, but perhaps not as once Baam tricked Horyang, he easily blasted him backwards. Viole couldn't directly penetrate Horyang's "shield" with a normal attack, although we don't know how hard he was trying as he wasn't even using the FUG basic tech (HwaJeopGongPaSool, I think). I wonder if this is what SIU meant by Viole using a weapon at a point in the future. I would've preferred to see him have Black March or some useful weapon gained in the Gongbang, but we'll see. This is probably the most curious I've been after a raw's been released in a long while.
Think I'll wait until a full translation is released before reaching any conclusions, but I wonder who that nurse is, she seems important.
There have been theories on Batoto about Baam being an ignition weapon himself, possibly the colourless December (or based on SIU's afterwords from this chapter, the undecember). The theory seemed crazy before this chapter, don't know what to think anymore. The lobster could certainly be an ignition weapon which was implanted in him, when Horyang tells his story, it cuts to Viole as though he went through a similar procedure. It would make a lot of sense tbh, the last thing FUG wants is for Baam to get killed, so what better way to prevent that from happening than giving him a powerful ignite weapon which can heal him. It's curious why it didn't activate in the fight against Urek though, maybe he can negate ignite weapons by being an irregular or something.
The nurse seemed important to whatever those plans are, so I'm sure that we'll learn either in this chapter or the next few.
I have yet to see the afterword for this chapter yet, so we'll see. I do know that last chapter's afterword said that the lobster was connected to the Devil, which means that it almost certainly is an ignition weapon as well. It would be interesting if it was the Undecember and it would make sense that FUG would implant an ignition weapon inside him that would heal him. Well, in the fight against Urek, even though Baam was protecting Miseng, he was massively outclassed, so I see it as it not activating to save Baam's life. If the lobster healed Baam, Urek would take him more seriously and possibly kill him, but by lying there, Urek would have no further interest in him. That, of course, assumes that ignition weapons have sentience, but we already know that the 13 Month Series are intelligent, so it stands to reason that other ignition weapons could be as well, such as Arie Hon's White Oar, the strongest weapon in the Tower.

That's possible but the lobster had no guarantee that Urek would leave Baam alone, for all it knew, Urek could have dealt the finishing blow anyway but by healing Baam, it could have made Urek interested in him and thus letting him live. But who knows, could have simply been for plot purposes, to show that Urek isn't such a bad guy, and also to make Baam risking his life more significant (wouldn't have been as courageous if he saved Miseng knowing that he was practically immortal thanks to the lobster)
Here it is
Teacher Sophia is Emile, calling it now
Reading the chapter, it seems even more likely that FUG performed a similar procedure on Baam, wonder what this "demon" is. Maybe the experiments were even set up by FUG - to prepare an ignite weapon for when their irregular enters the tower.
This is... interesting. And intense chapter to say the least.
Even if Baam is not an ignition weapon, we have to consider that He is a living weapon anyway. He was made for something, that much can be assured. Right now everything is enveloped with a some sort of confusing truth about everything which makes me think we're just scrapping the surface of a deeper plot.
Loving this. <3
