Title: Chapter 10 Gangi
Nikogami: Soyo-chan. Please don't talk anymore.
Nikogami: We've started.
The one who wins this bout
Nikogami: will rub Soyo-chan's breasts!!!!
Sugata: I'll win!!!!
This old man,
he's playing some moves you don't see often...
it's the posture of "Gangi".
It's an old shape.
T/N: Gangi = (literally) Goose Tree. Though as a compound it means "covered ally" or a "zigzag" kind of jagged shape of a roof with eaves. It's a kind of shogi enclosure (castle).
Sugata: He's using this...?
This battle formation originated
I think in...
the edo period.
It's a formation you don't see much nowadays.
But the fact that he brought this out for a match with breasts on the line
means he must...
Sugata: be a skilled "Gangi" user?!!
But for this kind of classical strategy
Sugata: I've got a whole bunch of techniques in my arsenal.
Sugata: The one to win will be me!!!
You look pale.
Sugata: I... I'm being forced...
Nikogami: The one to "rub" shall be me.
Sugata: The one to "rub"
will be me!!!
Sugata: But man, is "Gangi" really this dangerous a tactic?
There was a time when I was a kid
when this shape was popular.
compare "Gangi" to other "enclosures"...
Sugata: The Mino Enclosure
all protected the ou really cleanly.
So it made me not want to use this.
But this was popular!
T/N: Mino = Beauty Thick/Dark. Yagura = Watchtower/Turret/"Weapon Storehouse". Anaguma = Badger/"Bear in the Hole". These are all different kinds of basic ou enclosures (castles).
Sugata: It was because of the exploits of one man.
Guy: This Jinno guy is strong.
A veteran amateur named Jinno used this "Gangi"
in an Amateur Meijin Tournament.
Highlighted Name: Jinno Shintarou
Jinno [The same one going up the ladder]
Champion = Jinno Shintarou
Sugata: He won an unprecedented
3 consecutive championships!!!
3 Consecutive Championships [Big, white]
Amateur Meijin Tournament Champion [Middle, no outline]
Gangi [Left, cut off]
Guy: Jinno could probably even beat a pro like this.
Sugata: This is about an age where the gap in power between pros and amateurs was still the difference between heaven and earth.
Jinno fought a pro
in just one battle.
Sugata: And in that one battle, Jinno
Paper: Jinno takes down a pro!! [Right, white]
Sugata: And at that time, the strategy he utilized was
Just one man
Sugata: Jinno Shintarou
"Gangi Jinno", he was called.
He had two "god" kanjis in his name. So from that
he earned the nickname
T/N: Nikogami literally means "two gods". The name "Jinno Shintarou" (神野神太郎) has the kanji for God (神) twice.
Did you say "Nikogami" before?
Sugata: Jinno Shintarou-san?
Nikogami: That's right.
is he here...?
What's your relationship with him?
Nikogami: This is worrisome.
The rain's really coming down.
Sugata: "Gangi Jinno"!!!!
Sugata: Ah, is that true?
But this one battle
My opponent may be a "legend", or some terrible "demon", or even a "god", but
Sugata: I'll win!!!!!
