    • Interesting :3. I wonder how Xiao Wu is going to get her spirit ring once she hits level 40. I’m not sure she’s ready to tell everyone “I can magically summon spirit rings” yet, and I don’t know if she’d want to kill a spirit beast.

        • I’m not sure if that is a spoiler anymore. I know she hasn’t told any of the Shrek 7 devils how she gets her spirit rings, but I think the novel has made it clear she didn’t get it in a normal way. So I don’t believe he posted a spoiler.

        • It’s not a spoiler if people are this far in, back when Tang San gets his third spirit ring it explains that Xiao Wu literally summons a spirit ring from nowhere and then lies about it to everyone saying it was a thunder rabbit that got knocked out.

          • unless you decide to read the latest chapter without reading anything before it, or skipped the chapter, it’s not a spoiler.. Technically, it can’t even be considered a spoiler since it’s something that happened in the older chapters, and this comment section can only be read if you’re reading the current chapter.

            It’s either Xiao Wu has some sort of connection to some higher existence or mysterious ancient clan to be able to summon spirit rings out of nowhere, or maybe she’s actually just so skillful she can make her own skills, like Feng Xiaotian.

            • i think xiao yu is a kind of spirit beast, my point:
              -xiao yu can summon spirit ring
              -she don’t like to kill spirit beast from the very start
              -she is closely related to some peak existence spirit beast
              -apparently the ape can use ability close to those spirit master use (maybe like xio yu)
              -she was affraid what tang sang could see when his eyes lvl up
              -tang sang eye after lvl up clearly saw something maybe he somehow know it

              or she is somekind of incarnation of a new spirit beast and her offspring will be normal spirit master with a new spirit(rabbit something), no one as wondered how the first of a kind of spirit appeared

              I think my first suppostion is likely to be true but i hope it’s the second or something completely unexpected there is too little mystery in this ln.

      • Lol, back to your original point, the way I see it Xiao Wu has two options on how to gain a spirit ring, the first would be to let atleast Tang San and most likely Liu Erlong know she can create her own rings and have them accompany her to atleast give the appearance she hunted her own spirit beast as she will not be able to slip away like she has before. The second and more interesting possibility would be for her to return to the Star Duo Forest(they should pass fairly close to it) and find a spirit beast that is willing to give up its life to her, it’s been stated before that a spirit beast that willingly sacrifices itself will always result in a spirit bone and the ring can even exceed the limits, like Tang Sans 10,000 year ring, like this she could easily close the gap between her and Tang San again. With the apparent bond Xiao Wu has with the spirit beats of that forest it wouldn’t be unrealistic that she could find a beast willing to make such a sacrifice, perhaps one that had lost it’s mate or something, and if done right she could make it appear like it was just a lucky coincidence and hide her secret for atleast another 10 ranks. The second is what I’d like to see happen as it would make her much stronger, and seeing the shock of a second monster appearing before Salas would be amazing, especially one even younger than Tang San.

        As for what Xiao Wu is my guess it that she is a form of spirit beast, most likely a 100,000 year beast in human form, or the child of such a spirit beast, and I would bet anything that whatever it turns out Xiao Wu is, spirit beast or no, that Tang San’s mother was the same…

          Don’t try and play it off.
          You can’t just automatically assume that their moms are spirit beasts over 100,000 or/and reincarnated unless you’ve read spoilers.

          • um… actually you can, I never read the spoilers, but given how Xiao Wu is so secretive about everything, the fact that Spirit Hall was hunting for something that Tang Hao was protecting it makes sense. If you’ve read alot of fantasy type stories you get a feel for the plot lines they like to use, I’m hardly the first person to point out this theory. Something like the moms or Xiao Wu herself being 100,000 year spirit beasts isnt that much of a leap, especially when you look at all the hints given throughout the series. It’s alot like figuring out that Tang San’s dad was a Title Doulou before it was actually stated, just because it wasnt confirmed doesnt mean there werent plenty of hints. And I never said for sure that they were, I just thought that was the most likely outcome, lots of people think the same if you look through the comments…. Also like 90% of my post was on how Xiao Wu gets her spirit ring, not even on what she is because I’m not entirley sure yet

          • Spoiler By It Self Is A Very Losse And Yet Very Vague Word.
            But, Mostly Its All About ” Ones Point Of View ” And Morales ”

            Whats Truly Accpetable Can Only Be Judged By One self. . .

            The Use Here I Recon, Is All About Revealing Information Of Upcoming Chapters.
            Thus, Talking About This Chapter Is Or Should At Least Be All OKY,

            Theories In My Eyes, IS NOT A Spoiler, Although, Theroies Proving To Be Very True And/Or Also Solid,
            Is Something ” I Personaly Keep To My Self ” As I Take them As A ” Possible Spoiler ”

            So Spoilers Can Only Harm Thos:
            * Who Missed Something Important In Previous Chapters
            * Ignoring What They Were Given: Hints, information, Etc, Etc
            * Skipping Chapters

            I Personaly Did Only See One Possible Spoiler Above Being Posted by: Mika.
            The Others Above Commenting Clearly Stated ” Theory ” , ” I Think ” Or Something There Of.

            As Such I Also, Have Powerful Theories, But, Due to Personality And How Accurate I Deem Them, To Be.
            I Will Not Share, Until Proper Info Has Been Given By The Story.

            Thus: ” Ones Point Of View ” And Morales ” Comes Onto Play

            Some Form Of Confirmation By ” Mr.Bagle ” Would Be Nice As Well . . .

            Take Care Everyone & Of Each Other

            Ps.
            Originally I Didnt Mean For It To Sound As A Lecture,
            Im Truly Sorry For That, But, I Needed To Make Self Clear.
            So I Didnt Sound Frustrated Or Anything.

    • So I’m not the only one thinking this is Spirit Hall’s trap? Last chapter said Tang San had to die, and on the way to Spirit Hall, a team of people so amazing suddenly appear? Suspicious indeed….

      And I’m guessing either he uses his Title Douluo killing trap or is saved by Dugu Bo…. hoping for the 1st one… Tang San killing a super powerful enemy that a 43 rank shouldn’t be able to kill would be awesome…

      Bet they have someone at least level 70…. he needs to kill another one in front of everybody…

    • I don’t know. It would seem awfully convenient to have the big competitors die on your doorstep, damning even. From a political POV it seems a bad choice, it could inspire alliances.
      True If it happens on the way there it’ll not be much better but despite its transparency at least the spirit hall would have it a bit easier to claim they didn’t do it.

      Like

      • As long as only 1 or 2 were killed then the Spirit Hall could apologize to their families and “thoroughly investigate” their unfortunate, accidental deaths. Framing one of the other teams would also be a perfectly good option. Or, they could not kill them at all and just frame them for something and punish them however they like.

        Like

        • See I wouldn’t buy that and I’m willing to go out on a limb and say neither would the powers in this world. Only 1 getting killed and that one being the biggest threat for spirit hall and right in the middle of the area they control and should be able to keep save? It would cost them and it would be way harder to sell the whole we are innocent spiel.

          1 or 2 killed depends on if they are on the same team but could have repercussions regardless of only with one empire a school or everyone. And only because Tang San is the most obvious target doesn’t mean they’d be able to just ignore the rest of his team. Of course that depends on how they die. If they could fake a public accident that they could get away with maybe but I’m guessing it is kinda hard to kill people with their spirit power. About the idea of framing them for something yes I agree that could very well work.

          But all in all the possibility of being immediately blamed for the attack is lesser the farer away from their area of control it happens they might even blame the empire if they think up enough reasons. So they might continue going after them in the finals area but there s no reason not to try earlier in fact as I see it there are only advantages.

          • The downside to this method is that they either have to wipe out/capture the entire group or refrain from using their spirits. After all, how many high ranking people have the same spirit? It would be fairly easy to identify them by their spirits, especially if they also used their spirit abilities.

            But yes, I do understand your point. If they can do this successfully and then blame it on the other empire, then its a superior option, I just think that its a lot riskier.

    As soon as Tang San released his second spirit that put him on spirit hall’s “Oh Shit Get Rid Of Him NOW!!” list. Man… next chapter I hope we get to see Tang San’s hidden weapons destroy these “bandits”. Its not like he will get a disadvantage in the finals so they most certainly should.

          as for hidden weapons, their essence is being hidden before and after using it, in most cases investigations wouldn’t result to anything leading to the murderer, thats what hidden weapons are.
          worst case they’d just know tang san “did” something to kill the bandits, doubtfully knowing it was hidden weapons, even less what kind of weapons they were.

  14. Some advice for those that read both the LN and Manga. If you don’t want the story to be spoiled for you, I recommend that you stop reading the manga. They just caught up to the tournament, but they’ve changed a few things story wise, including spoiling the reasoning for Spirit Hall chasing down Tang’s parents. Apparently this reason hasn’t been unveiled in these LN translations yet, but the manga is taking g liberties and switching out present story content with future story content. You’ve been warned.

        As in most cases the mangas are just a shortened version of the LN, but not in this case, the changes are just too drastic. I didnt read the manga, just looked at a few parts, but fatty isnt really that fatty, Dai mubai doesnt have double pupils, but different collored eyes (so the scenes where his pupils unifies become null), Oscar`s abilities arent sausages/vulgar, Tang San`s spider lances have three parts instead of two, and is reaaaaaaly small, their shrek masks are ridiculous, and dont cover their ages (the reason they used it..), the old freak is kinda young looking, and so on…

Then tang San uses his poison to kill another hundred or so enemies(especially the weaker ones under 40). Then the rest of shreks show their power and teamwork to take out hundred each(except the teachers, probable thousands). Then tang San uses his spider lances and everyone sees him and after they finish off these bandits, the competition will be to scared and realize how they had zero chance of winning even after switching teams. I hope this is what happens, can’t wait to see.

    The quota thing is the part about they having to hand over the list with the participants in the beginning ?
    I still dont get how they could get around it, the tournament is co-hosted by both empires and the spirit hall, even if she promises that to Salas, wouldnt the empires oppose such a big break of the rules ? One thing would be if their members died and didnt have 7, therefore needing more members, I could see the 3 parties making an exception, but this reason ? Why would the empires agree ?
