-> RTS Page for Chagecha 7
One is a powerful upper-classmen, the other a little kid. Both are extremely powerful...but still have no clue how to fight in a team battle! But if Chagecha and Doraji don't shape up soon...Gekiatsu may blow their first fight!
Yankee 7: Underground Battle
Caption: Doraji, full of desire!!
Yamauchi: THAT KID PIERCED THROUGH THE CEILING!?
Chagecha: DORAJI, YOU DON'T HAVE A FOOTHOLD HERE, GO BACK FOR THE MOMENT...
Doraji: ...It's MY BIG SCENE---!!!
Yamauchi: IDIOT! HE'S FLYING IN HERE HIMSELF

Doraji: It's complete.
Doraji: YAN-DEADLY TECHNIQUE: ME-SYSTEM: SLOTS CAT SHAMOSHI!!!
Yamauchi: GUWAAAAA, CAT-SHAMOSHI~~!!?
Caption: WATER RETURNS
Caption: Doraji is a super-grade schooler who hides a massive Yanki. Although...he doesn't even have one way to use that massive power. Your own sensitivity is sent out merely by excitement. Your self-style Yan-Deadly Technique are without the condition of your Yanki, making you take damage to yourself again and again.
Chagecha: WHAT WAS THAT NOW...? WAS THAT...A YAN-DEADLY TECHNIUQE? IT'S CHARACTERISTIC IS ABSURB YET I CAN'T SEE FIGURE WHICH ONE... (I don't understand the meaning of "Me-system")
Chagecha: HEY, DORAJI, UNFASTEN THIS CHAIN. I'LL FIGHT YOU LATER.
Doraji: YOU'VE MISUNDERSTOOD ME, ROOKIE...
Doraji: HYA--HAHAHA, THIS IS A GOOD STATE, NEWBIE! THIS RANK-BATTLE'S SHINING YAN-MVP WILL BE ME. WHO WOULD GIVE SOMEONE LIKE YOU A BOSS BATTLE? SINK SINK!!
Yamauchi: DON'T F**K WITH ME...
Suzume: NOW, THIS IS THE GEKIATSU SHOPPING DISTRICT RANK-BATTLE! THE TIME HAS BEEN TICKING AWAY, WITH FIFTEEN MINUTS GONE, WE'RE IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE BATTLE. WILL EVERYONE FROM ALL SCHOOLS PLEASE BUILD UP TO THE LAST SPURT!
Onizawa: UOOOOOO, LAST SPU----------RT!!! WHY ARE THESE "FILL-INS" ABSURDLY TROUBLESOME---!!!
Caption: Acquired a large amount of hidden weapons.
Masato: TIGER-SAN, WE SHOULD SUPPORT THEM HERE.
Tiger: Should we?
Voice: YAN-DEADLY TECHNIQUE
Suzume: WELL---IT'S OVER! ONE MEMBER OF SEKIRANUN HIGH IS DOWN. GEKIATSU HIGH TAKES A ONE-POINT LEAD.
Voice: You've avoided me well.
"Frankenstein": MY GREAT "RED CONE FESTIVAL
Masato: UWA~~THAT GUY IS STILL FIGHTING WITH CONES......RED FESTIVAL...I'VE WANTED TO SEE SOME TECHNIQUE OPPOSE IT...
Tiger: GUUU....THAT FEELING OF SPIKES. SOMEHOW I REALLY MISS THEM...
Kotarou: ...WHAT'S THAT..................THAT FACE...
Kotarou: SHOULDN'T LOOK DOWN ON ME, YOU DOSANPIN--
(TN: "Dosanpin" is an expression regarding a powerful but poor samurai)
Onizawa: SAVE ME...SAVE ME KOTAROU-KUN-----
Kotarou: I DON'T ASSOCIATE WITH YOU----!!!
Suzume: SEKIRANUN HIGH HERE HAS A REGRTFUL OUT-OF ARENA RETIREMENT. YET ANOTHER HAS DISSAPEARED.
Onizawa: KOTAROU-KUN'S RUNAWAY MODE...WHEN THAT'S ON, HE WON'T RECOGNIZE ANY OF US ANYMORE...THE BLOOD OF THE SEA.
New face of remaining "Fill-In": Herring Roe
(TN: A bit of a pun here: the kanji at the start of "Fill-In" is also the kanji at the start of "Herring Roe")
Sign: Fish Market
Lower Sign: Herring Roe sale
Suzume: Yet another is down due to a forfeit from battle for Sekiranun High.
Onizawa: I've got a wet towel for you...
Masato: THAT SHOWY BAZOOKA HAD WET TOWELS!
Glasses: Your rank battles should have begun. Our best formation has been destroyed. Unbelievable.
Washio: I'm sorry. I've got experience.
Himawari: IT'S TERRIBLE, KOTAROU HAS...
Washio: Run away.
Washio: S**T, Kotarou can only be stopped by me...
Washio: Himawari, I want you to help Chagecha-senpai and Doraji.
Washio: Those two don't comprehend the way to battle. Hurry, they should be in the underground parking garage.
Doraji: NOW, NOW, COME AT US TWO TO END THIS
Yamauchi: GOKU-YAN-DEADLY TECHNIQUE CHAIN-SERIES: WATER FLOWER
(TN: "Goku" is an increaser, such as the word "Very" or "Quite")
Chagecha & Doraji: GYAAAAAAAAA
Chagecha: DORAJI (to himself) Why?...Our Yankee-quality should be above the rules...why can't we do this?
Yamauchi: YOU'RE COMFORTING GUYS. EVEN IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF YANKI, YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND ONE WAY TO USE IT! DON'T BE RESERVED IN SMASHING HIM!
Helmet: HOW'S THAT BRAT. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT A WALK UNDERWATER?
Doraji: IT'S LIKE A DREAM...I'VE BECOME A FISH...
Creature: You need practice, fool.
Doraji: A new species of Ponyo!?
(TN: Assumably this is probably a reference to the recent Hayao Miyazaki film "Ponyo on a Cliff By the Sea")
Himawari: What is this...
Doraji: HIMAWARI, SAVE ME~~
Chagecha: OOH, WERE YOU WORRIED AND COME TO SAVE US?
Himawari: WHO ARE YOU...I'VE JUST COME TO SAY I'M THE LEADER, IDIOTS
Chagecha: FINE, THEN TELL US HOW WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT HERE. PLEASE DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT LATER
Himawari: BY COMBINING YAN-DEADLY TECHNIQUES, NORMALLY IT'S UTILIZED TO INCREASE POWER MANY TIMES. THE YANKI OF TWO PEOPLE PILES UP MUTUALLY, LETTING THEIR YANKI MIX TOGETHER AND ALLOWING "GOKU-YANKI" TO BREAK OUT. WITH THOSE CIRCUMSTANES, THE RELEASED YAN-DEADLY TECHNIQUES POSESS A MASSIVE POWER THAT CAN BE CONTROLLED IN THE BATTLE AREA.
Chagecha: I understand...that's how it's arranged?
Yamauchi: YOU TALK TOO MUCH, CUTIE!
Yamauchi: Kukuku, this parking garage hjere is a massive parking garage that continues to the sixth floor. Shall I imprison her in the B-6 girl's bathroom?
Doraji: UOOOO, DON'T MAKE FUN OF GEKIATSU HIGH-------
Helmet: WHAT'S WITH THIS BRAT'S YANKI AMOUNT!? I CAN'T SUPPRESS IT ALONE
Doraji: YAN-DEADLY TECHNIQUE: ME-SERIES...
Slots: MAN'S TASTE
Doraji: ATLANTA'S LEGENDARY 200-M FINALS!!
Chagecha: THAT'S GREAT, DORAJI. NOW COME OVER HERE
Doraji: I'll lend you one..
Yamauchi: HE'S RUNNING THERE
Yamauchi: OH NOW, IF THOSE TWO MIX UP THEIR MASSIVE YANKI, OUR PLAN WILL...
Yankee 7: End
Next Time: THE BATTLE WITH SEKIRANUN HIGH CONCLUDES!! AND THEN IT CAN'T BE, IT CAN'T BE...!?
TN: You really have to admire the cleverness of Sawai in how he sets up and uses his various characters. Just as if we knew all there was to know about Doraji's fighting style...he uses slot machines in his head and throws wooden spoons in a cat suit! The cat suit bit somehow reminded me a bit of Hiiragi from Bo-bobo...only a lot younger and a bit weirder. Similarly I did like how we finally get a bit more on Kotarou's fighting style...which probably explains his anti-social behavior. Personally, I really wish we got more moments like this, especially with Doraji and Chagecha teaming up in the final battle with Yamauchi...but it may not last too much longer. According to rumors, Chagecha has pretty much bombed...which may make the next chapter the very last one! Considering this is the first series I've followed from the beginning as it runs in WSJ, I find this really bittersweet...but I should have expected it considering that a series this mind-blowing was bound to be ignored in that magazine filled with...well, the typical. I'll see you next week, though...end of series or not! (they better not just have some dumb rushed ending if it is over...or reveal who Tiger Mask is even after his "spikes" comment this week ;p)
