I actually just lightly skimmed the whole series, and I'm not fully reading it until I translate it, so I have no idea why Toshio and Bruiser turn bad. All I know is Toshio is constantly hiring people to kill Yamato - inside the ring and out.
Before I reconcider download it again, is anything fixed or is it just same download?
It said so in the original post that it's been cleaned and updated, along with my bottom post to announce it, so yes. The scans are cleaned, some font has been fixed, so it's different than the previous volume. That goes for any volumes I have reuploaded around this same time; if it doesn't mention being updated or cleaned, it's just a reupload with nothing new, but to keep the link alive so it doesn't go out
Whoa, I was not ready to see a picture of young!Yoshihiro when I started reading. He is young... and he has a lot of hair - why am I so surprised? Probably because I'm used to seeing more recent picture of him, LOL.
This is very exciting to read. There's something about Yoshi's older stories that make them enjoyable to read, even though one starts to notice certain formulas or clichés to his stories, you can tell that he was more... inspired, so it doesn't really matter if he keeps re-using certain ideas. He's having fun and seems to have some sort of goal with his stories, so it becomes entertaining to read because of this.
Also, I was kind of happy to see a Boxer in SSY. x3 Haven't seen any in Yoshi's other mangas, so it's nice to see an under-represented breed. Also, Fubuki's back-story. ;_;

I agree completely on being able to tell he put heart into Yamato. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I do, but it's easy to love this when you realize this is the very first time he's used his usual Ginga tropes or ideas, and it's fun to see how he started off on his dog stories with this one.
Kuro: Meti is really fast at translating. Not sure how he does it LOL; I got lucky with vol 12 because I did some stuff early outta hype, but I couldn't this time, so it might take a littleeee longer

alpha: OH WOW I CAN'T WAIT ;D this is too awesome

Kuro: Hmmm... Tesshin uses the word 'onee-san' to prefer to Sakura... so despite him being some months younger than Gin, Sakura is still older than Tesshin apparently...?

regnant: Makes sense to me since she was Gin's mate, so they're closer in age

Kuro: True. Something else I don't get is why Yoshi tries acting like Smith's old personality was being a slacking coward. I think he's mixing up GB and Smith just because they're fluffy eared dogs ;;

alpha: Indeed! Smith was never a coward - he was leader of his platoon, he was leading member of the Suicide Corps, and he even stood against a scary general to protect gin.

alpha: ''protect gin''.. lol. I meant Gin obviously. not gin.

kolasis: I think because he was much less gang-ho about being a badass and he wasn't saying he can't wait to die as much as the other Manly Men, he's seen as cowardly for daring to express feelings of fear sometimes
Feb 19, 2018 14:28:47 GMT -7
Kuro: Yeah, I know right Alpha? But Smith told Gin to let him go when they were in the waterfall, because he didn't want Gin to die for him. Sad that not being over the top can rank you as 'coward', even if he wasn't the strongest.

alpha: He also got seriously wounded in the bear fight, and he didn't want Gin to rescue him.

乃ĿŌŌƉȲ₭ȲŌŪƧĦĪṜŌ: Is that how he's being presented next book? I always thought (in terms of the anime at least) that he was giving Smith a hard time because of what happened with Sakura.
Feb 20, 2018 8:07:43 GMT -7
Kuro: Yeah I know right? But yeah, Bloodykyoushiro. Tesshin was surprised to hear about Smith risking his life to save GB, saying he was always a coward who'd never do that. And the Gaiden side story doesn't help this change by making Smith a slacker too
Feb 20, 2018 10:04:27 GMT -7
Kuro: So I'm just confused if we're suppose to think Smith is only being put in bad light cause of Tesshin because of the situation, or if Yoshi actually made his younger self different. I mean... Tesshin saw Smith when he was younger. He should know him.
