    Cut the off-topic bullshit. This isn't the thread for you if you're just here to speak badly of the series which people enjoy talking about here.

    Has it improved? The first couple of chapters felt like a bit of a slog.

    Spoiler:

    Rough Translation:

    Chapter 18: Kotsuga and Ryu.

    The purpose of both of them is to steal gold.

    Kotsuga seems confused by it and asked why.

    Ryu says, "Its because you said to cut everything except for woman."(implying he think hachi is a woman)

    Hachi gets angry at this. After a few exchanges of words, Daruma decides to confront Ryu.

    Ryu asked, "Cat, are you a male or female."

    Daruma answered, "Neither."

    Ryu thought about it and pulls out a second blade from his belly. (unsure)

    He pulls out his samurai soul and put it on his blade.

    The space ship changes shape and restrains Kotsuga.

    Ryu cuts it off and free Kotsuga. And they both escape the ship.

    Second Half:

    Daruma is fighting outisde the ship with his armor on. He came back to the ship when he heard an emergency notice about a sudden problem with his money.

    The notice says something like, "Can't pay the amount required. Kindly verify and check your balance."

    Daruma, "Show me the transaction listing!"

    "Food 20,000yen; Hachimaru's clothes 15,000yen; Antique shop 17,000,000yen"

    Daruma has a strange look and asked hachi what happened.

    Hachi thought Daruma looked at him funny because his head got pierced by Ryu's sword.

    Daruma, "What funny is your sense with money, hachi.."

    They caught both of them eventually and Daruma asked Hachi what happened at the antique shop.

    Hachi said he bought a fabric with golden embroidery on it as a present for Ann.

    And he mistakenly saw the price as 1,7000 yen instead of 17,000,000 yen.

    Kotsuga, heard of the current money issue faced by Hachi and co, talks about their plan about a tournament that is being held at another planet

    The winner of the tournament will get a prize money of 1 billion yen.

    Also, the organizer seems to have a very participant by his side, and is a key of a legendary box.

    Hachi says, "Seems like a [killing 2 birds w/ 1 stone ]idea. Should i enter the festival, sensei?

    See, that is so much better than planet busting, come on Kishi. That's the slick choreography I expected from you in a samurai manga.

    Samurai have some sort of internal propulsion system/rocket boots? Never noticed. I gues this is a smaller scale version of what Ata was using to shoot across the galaxy like a ray of light.

    True. I expect this to not be a real deal tourney arc though.
    Is that a Coliseum on the moon??? Unless that moon is tiny that stadium should be the size of a large country
    :hmm
    -Opposite power to the Hero (seemingly repulsion instead of attraction)
    -Ass cloth wrap thing
    -Slick sword moves
    -Stoic disposition

    We shall see.
    Tight choreography >>>>>>> explosive and large scale feats.

    Ryu throwing in the extra soul and then sliding into an underhanded strike like a G is more appealing to me than Ata slicing the moon open.

    Another tidbit it that the organizer of tournament can supposedly wreck a “star” with one slash

    * star could also be planet, translation could be diff but still

    If you havent seen, the artist, Okubo, draws based in Kishis storyboards which are quite detailed. So, if the poses and placements and panneling seem really Kishi like, that is why.
