  1. Is it odd that I’d completely forgotten about Tang San’s hidden weapons until he used them here? After spending years focusing on his spirit level and spirit abilities, it really added to the unexpectedness of him using them.

    • I don’t feel bad for her at all. When you breed hatred in your heart, it only feels like karma that you turn to love your nemesis.

      So people, remember not to spread hate. And as I say this, I hold a very special place in my heart for the people spreading hate and violence. It is the heat that fuels my dissent.

        Hey, english isnt my first language. So if dont give you much trouble, could you explain the meaning of this phrase? Especially the “dissent” word in it sound weird, I google it to make sure it has another meaning besides disagree and couldnt find it. It woud help increase my english’s understanting a little bit more.

          • Contextual lapse. What he is dissenting from has not been identified. Otherwise, grammar is off; “it is what fuels my dissent” would have been correct.

          • Actual understanding of a phrase is not always an exact process. What you said does work- that is replacing the “dissent” part with aversion. However if you read the whole post you will notice the OP is generally disagreeing with people that hate, with their trait of hating others.
            So the general understanding would be: he/she has a special place in his/her heart for those that hate. The feelings that he/she gets when considering those people are totally opposite to OP’s beliefs thus resulting in dissent and fueling (and thereby the use of “heat”) a constant cycle of displeasure.

            • I’m glad to see a discussion started on my comment.

              I believe people give meaning to words and context is indeed relevant. For me, dissent means disagreement. In this very context it is disagreement with spreading hate. At the same time, it is also a way of expressing disagreement with a broader range of issues. For example, it can also express disagreement with the position of other people who sympathize with Hu Liena.

              The expression “heat that fuels” is a metaphor and I believe it to be correct. Even though English is not my first language, I am quite certain the grammar is correct. I agree it sounds a bit off but in the heat of the moment I considered it a nice, poetic way of expressing something… pun intended.

      • He did use it to his advantage though, He used her trust of him to get her to let him come along with her group. That is what really annoyed me, the abuse of trust is disgusting to me.

        Like

        • So, your reasoning would have been: “I sense that the people that want to kill the person I love the most are nearby hunting him\her. The action that would have the greatest chance of success and saving the life of the one I love would be to blend in with this group, but I won’t do that. I’d rather my loved one die than me betray someone’s trust.”?

  2. Thanks a lot—-!
    my reaction to seeing the title of the chapter was…’-raises hands in air- Yes—!!’
    Well—tang san acted at a good moment! Yes, they have finally reunited! I feel bad for hu liena, but, it couldn’t be helped. I knew it was coming all along, after all.

  5. Also, I really thought he might throw a Yama’s Needle thing. It would be awesome if he could take out two Title Duoluo in one shot. Either by distracting them to let the two beasts break free, or just out right killing them both. That would certainly cause a revolution in Spirit Hall and strengthen their opposition. 😀

    • I had the same thought. You know, just take the two big guys out at the start and let the beasts take care of the small fries.
      Was it possible? If not, can anyone point out to me why it couldn’t be done?

      • Fiest and formost: Xiao Wu’s safety > killing Title Dulou

        And then, if he’s not confident that his weapons could distract both them top dawgs, or break their concentration and their domain, then he wouldn’t risk wasting his element of suprise on it. Using it to escape is a wiser option.

        • Also, it’s possible the 2 duoluo have their guard up too high, not as much towards Tang San, but more in general, aka the risk of failure is too high, and since he only has 2 needles and they’re that hard to make he can’t risk failing with them, especially here. Managing to take out 8 spirit sages compared to a low chance at the titled duoluos, think he went for the “highest chance to inflict the biggest damage”.

            • I believe Tang Hao stated directly the even before he got his 9th ring he could kick most title Doulou’s ass, so iunno about that natural barrier. The real problem with the Yama thing is the range. Tang San would have had to get close, and if he did that the spirit sages + etc would surround and kill him I’d guess.

    • Says in the chapter “Ghost Douluo and Chrysanthemum Douluo’s bodies had both disappeared as that gold and silver ring of light formed, and that giant ring of light had already flown into the sky” I’m guessing that Yama’s invitation would only work if if they still had bodies

  9. Well as much as I feel sorry for Hu Liena that her feelings aren’t reciprocated beyond that what does she have to be angry about? Sure he hid his identity, but the fact that he dragged her though, got her a deathgod domain and didn’t kill her when he had the chance didn’t change.

    And now, he could have easily killed her brother, he didn’t and he could have easily attacked her as well to remove the next leader of Spirit Hall, he once again didn’t.

    I’m hoping that she’ll be angry for a bit but then calm down when she realises that the person she knew Tang Yin isn’t that much different from Tang San and if he really wanted to be her enemy he could have completely crippled the next generation of Spirit Hall by killing it’s most important people.

      • He abused her trust to save Xiao Wu’s life. There is nothing wrong with that. He has never even hinted at being interested in Hu Liena, and had previously warned her that they may be enemies later. This is equivalent to the brits spying on the nazis in WWII. Is he lying to the spirit hall people and Hu Liena in particular? Of course. Is it warranted? Given the previous actions of Spirit Hall, he’ll yes.

    • You’re not the only one. I actually wonder how people can feel bad for her. I mean, as far as I can remember, Tang San was always cold towards her and didn’t try to advance their relation in a romantic fashion. He treated it fairly even though she was and is his enemy.

      Not everyone gets their love returned. I’ve been in that situation practically every time I cared for a girl. You don’t see me feeling sorry for her. And yes, I’m still alone. But life goes on.

        • While I think she is a more interesting character then Xiao Wu (and personnality wise only, more fitting Tang San), don’t forget her life belong to Spirit Hall OR being labeled a traitor all her life and hunted down.

          Don’t forget that she was raise by Spirit Hall. She owe everything she is and have to them. The supreme Pontiff is like a mother to her.

          I feel like raise on a different kind of environnement, she would have being awesome. Unfortunatly in this world, being part of a sect is a lifetime commitement most of the time. It include being part of Spirit Hall as well.

          She cant quit Spirit Hall without being labeled a traitor and being hunted down. Being hunted down is not fun.

          I can understand why people feel sorry for her BUT not becasue of unquireted feelings. In my case, it goes deeper then that.

  13. I don’t know why people think tang San is weaker, compared to the other seven/three devils because he’s only 59.

    If tang San would only cultivates his spirit power(not mysterious heaven skills, not constructing his hidden weapons, none of those) he would probable be a spirit douluo by now. Especially if he didn’t go to slaughter city. He gained seven levels when he left hell road and was with his aunt. He would have gained probable at least 14 to 20 levels altogether if not in slaughter city. But with his experience from the arena and fighting in slaughter city, it made him one of a kind with no hesitation to kill.
    So Instead of just rushing to gain spirit power he gain something far greater. Just that there makes him already stronger then his peers if used against them. Just like mysterious heaven skills.

    He’s balanced out, so over time he won’t have a weakness. It’s not like he won’t be able surpass the other devils in the future with spirit power now that he can cultivate.

    That’s all

    • Well, If I remember correctly, he should have gained only one level when being with his aunt; after all he did say at some point that his yearly advancement was really top notch among genius spirit masters, but never at gaining 7 levels in a year when he was at his aunt´s… though he did gain a bit more levels when he trained with his father for those 2 years.

    Anyway, Thank you Bagelson for this chapter. You make my day everytime I see a update.

      • Actually iirc it said that Evil eye tiger mubai would be scared to offend Soft Bones rabbit Douluo Xiao Wu because Thousand Hands Douluo Tang San would….. So basically we only know Xiao Wu and Tang San will be Title douluo. We are not sure even for Mubai, leave alone the rest. But what we do know is that Mubai will still be alive (i guess) so if the other two are Title Douluo, he should be too with his talent and the immortal treasure herb!

    • I’d say yes you should start from the beginning and read it. At first it’s not so different from the manhua version so it will seem pretty similar but things start to change especially later in the novel. While the changes in the manhua don’t particularly conflict with the novel in anyway. some things are made just so there is a difference and then never used again, like the whole created spirit abiliy from the spirit hall arena arc and then some tangents just don’t make sense and the more recent stuff that happened like hell’s road got totally nerfed and skipped in the manhua version so yes you should read the novel and yes there is a pretty profound difference, especially in the recent chapters.
