Ma: What’s the matter Kensei?

Girl: So my opponent is the tall one with the moustache…?

Ma: The one on the left is a woman!! In these sorts of situations I have to activate my Bakusatsui!

Very Important TL Note: Bakusatsui is one of Ma’s ultimate techniques. It is a Katsujin Ken technique designed to prevent a woman from fighting by destroying her clothes without causing any harm to her body. Essentially he wants to strip her.

Foreward: Ok, so this week it's a little bit fast...and possibly sloppy. And also out before the raw is...but I translated it directly from a Shounen Sunday as I'm currently living in a ski resort in Japan and my friend picked me up a copy for me in the morning. Unfortunately, I cannot scan it, and I chose to board all day rather than translating it when I got my hands on it. So it could've possibly been released earlier...but then again the dorm's internet doesn't switch on until 5pm (2 hours ago as I'm writing this) so it really wouldn't have changed much.
Also one more thing, unless I say so this translation is free to be used for scanlations/international translations/criticism or... Read More " "

It's been a little while, I suddenly disappeared from the translation world about ... 4 months ago? but the reason behind it is that I've been working in a Ski Resort in Japan. Without a computer, and internet. While I've improved my Japanese and learnt how to snowboard, my English may have suffered, since I don't really use it that much anymore. But since I finally bought myself a notebook, I thought I might as well post this...Plus I had nothing to do between 2pm-3pm today.

Looks like the first time I've been beaten for some time, didn't even know the raw was out. I blame heaps of overtime going towards paying for a certain trip-...
