possible spoiler?

Nope, Ganaha had already admitted to having been the one who shot her dead.

I'm surprised she's still talking to him, especially after the break up. Lol

So, it's pretty much confirmed that Ikuo is some sort of super soldier, right?

Ikuo is the Magnificent Steiner from Monster we've never seen unleashed on screen.


If anything Danno is weighing him down. Not only is Ikuo better at being a detective but way stronger too. Although Ikuo probably wouldn't be able to keep his sanity intact enough to continue his double life, he'd probably just become a badcop serial killer.

 

Not really. The two are complimentary. Ikuo is stronger and is an excellent investigator, but Danno is better at manipulating people and is behind a great part of Ikuo's success as a detective by feeding him information from the underworld. Don't you remember that he was able to ferret out that girl trafficker back in the Abuse Arc? It was also Danno who uncovered the whole connection to Zero, back in the Infiltration Arc.

 

I think the author has succeeded at creating a duo that is truly a duo. The story is mainly narrated from Ryuuzaki's point of view, but Danno's interventions have been crucial to the success of most of his cases. The bus hijacking incident also proved that Danno is the better one at reading the psyche of criminals (he was the one who guessed correctly that the hijacker was going for the Professor's grandson). And let's not forget that Danno was the one who found Hayato.

 

I find your admiration for Ryuuzaki interesting, because I know quite a few commentators who admire Danno for similar reasons as you and believe Ikuo is the one dragging him down. This only shows that the author has achieved a good balance: both sides are correct. Personally, my favourite arcs are those when the two are not just meeting sporadically, but working together most of the time, like this one.

 

As for the remainder of your speculation, as the translator I won't say anything.

Damn, I can't wait to finally see Ikuo unleashed for real. Dude's probably gonna rampage and go loose canon from Danno eventually. Taking down like 70 cops in the process singlehandedly.

I also suspect Ikuo's relationship with sensei is way deeper than he's letting on. We saw in a flashback that Danno had a gradeschool crush on sensei, which is part of what fuels his revenge. Sensei also proclaimed to "have someone she loves" already. I'm guessing gold watch was her lover (who couldn't be with her because of section 0 undercover bullshit) and Ikuo was the child they had together, who was likely separated due to circumstances.

Either that or we go full /ss/ and Ikuo was actually Sensei's lover, which would better explain his fractured psyche, as unlikely as it actually is. 

obviously the moment someone says they know who gold watch is, their lips are sealed forever leading the mcs on their eternal goose chase.

Body bag incoming!!!

BEAST MODE ACTIVATED!!!

Tell me Chuck, how does this make you feel then?

 

That guy was LUCKY that his genitals were so small that the shot missed!!!

What are you talking about!?

 

We CAN'T have any ultra-violence!!  I just can't handle the sympathy pains I get from those blows to the groin!!!

 

 

(Limbs being torn off, entrails dragging on the ground, brain matter spurting all over the place, blood by the buckets full, and any other MILD violence, I can handle.  But PLEASE!!! NO NUT SHOTS!!!)

I want to see it... Ryuzaki tear out the eyes of the last member of "Zero" before beating him with his own limbs after he ripped those off too. Come on Ultraviolence!

I'm not sure what sound effect Ganaha was making, but it's actually a thing in boxing (as well as muay thai, mma, etc) to let out quick breaths in short bursts as you punch.

 

Well, thanks for the explanation. He used a common SFX, "shu", for quick airbursts or the quick passage of air (like a blade cutting the air, for example). Not knowing about boxing practice, I failed to see the connection and opted for a literal translation.

man if Ryuzaki was there instead of Danno he would have messed that guys face up so bad

"We're not going out... that person and I."

 

"To put it simply, I am just something Ryuzaki-san uses as he pleases."

 

Out of context, this definitely sounds like they were only together because he was using her for sex. XD

I think I have figured this out. It's not a spoiler, as I haven't read ahead. As the translator, I am only two chapters ahead of readers. And I haven't watched the live action series (which may not have reached the same ending, since the series is still ongoing).

It was actually kind of hilarious to see Danno literally go flying and otherwise overreact to the haunted house.

Still, suddenly having a heartfelt monologue with the sickly-looking delinquent in the middle of the haunted house? I thought you had a plan, Danno. I guess it's a necessary exposition for new readers who picked it up after the switch over to the monthly format/magazine, but still...
 

He was murdered in the Arcana Health & Beauty building, on chapter 54 or 55, if I remember right. It's the Danno Arc.

Ah, thank you.

So all that's needed for Ryuzaki to get macho is the power of the MENstrual pad, eh?

It's like they were dating and he just broke up with her. XD

anyone remember where it was that katsurada died? my shitty memory can't recall.
