  1. thanks a lot!

  3. If they had sufficiently formidable attack power, then even going to specially hund spirit beasts was enough to support the clan.

    and i found this chapter epic, strangely…

    but I don’t understandbhow he’ll gain his bet like this… i don’t think he can keep up like that for a stick… maybe by using his spirit (for bind bai he but it’s cheating) or the deathgod domain? (he doesn’t use it actually but it can increase his speed or decrease his rival spead, but i don’t think it will be enough…, )

    • My bet is that we are gonna see that spirit ability that he gained with Xiao Wu spirit ring. He will use it either now to make the Speed Clan join the Tang Sect. If he dont use it now, it will be against the Breaking Clan.

      My bet is that his spirit is not fast enough otherwise to deal with him. Even his fourth ring ability, Blue Silver Prison, is not fast enough to stop protect him this time. Maybe it is though… but that Spirit Douluo should be able to break it easily.

      • Hmmm but I feel like it would be kinda anticlimatic if he revealed his 100 000 year ring just like that in a contest that hasn’t any big drawbacks for him even if he loses his bet. He can just try to convince them over time. Moreover, there are so many people watching, and until now, the only people he revealed his ring to, are Tai Tan and Nuo… whatever his name was (old rhino guy).

        • No, I feel like the Speed clan was made to be in Tang Sect. Their speed will be crucial to use the hidden weapons and Tang San made such a bet because he really wanted for them to join.

          If he revealed it to the Defense Clan, I believe he would too for this contest of strenght. DOnt forget Tang San still revealed his hammer in the Spirit Master Tournament, even against Grandmaster judgement. Tamg San have being proven to not like losing.

          Beside, every bit will be needed to convince the Speed Clan leader to join the Tang Sect. I believe that once he know his relationship with Clear Sky Hammer sect, he might even go against his words and attack Tang San. Even if he joined the sect, it doesnt mean he cant leave or guarantee his loyalty, Im sure Tang San knows that.

          Beside, he need people who hate Spirit Hall to the core, to ensure their loyalty. I truly believe he would use everything he have.

          • I don’t think he will reveal his spirit rings until speed clan joins, and I believe they will. But, I also don’t think teleportation will be enough. He will probably pull out the spider lances to increase his speed and maneuverability

    • Teleportation in itself is not a burden on him with only 1% expenditure per jump. Now how many jumps he makes is a different story all together. I don’t think we’ll see any other abilities beyond one or both domains appearing. But I’ve got this strong mental image of Goku vs Freiza in my head, with the sound effects lol, from reading this chapter. The whole appearing and disappearing instantaneously thing going on as they battle.

      Thanks for the chapter!

  5. Hey belagelson,
    I know you have repeatedly stated that you don’t want a donate page because you don’t want the pressure to do something you enjoy doing anyway. But there is this program called patreon where people can offer money in such a way that you receive it each time you release a chapter. This way there is no external pressure to release more chapters just a cool reward each time you do.

  6. Thanks for the chapter!

    “Since Tang San obtained Purple Demon Eye, this was the first time he felt his eyesight couldn’t keep up with the opponent’s movements.”
    Wasn’t there part where TS couldn’t see his father make that wooden hammer?

    I’m not sure if this once a week update schedule is good for my mental health; I know chapter might be updated some point on Sunday but I still keep looking up every day of week and at least once an hour on Sundays… I follow mangas that are updated weekly and I don’t seem to have same problem with them =\

  8. Kinda fitting that him winning over the Speed Clan would be accomplished so fast! Looks like we’ll have the third clan under the Tang Sect by the next chapter.

    I knew he’d use Teleportation. Kinda wondering what else he’s going to use. If he really only needed to use Teleportation, the match would be over this chapter. Sometimes gotta happen in the next chapter to make things more interesting.

    I think its a little cruel for the proud poor clan to be tricked like this, even if its for their own good. Especially the start when he try to buy it, make my hearth ashe :/ Hope when they come in the tang clan, they will kick ass and never ever going to poverty or have a sentiment to be useless ever again.

  12. The Title Douluo being allowed to use his spirit abilities against a 21 year old seems a bit imbalanced. I’m surprised he didn’t declare some kind of handicap. I’m not sure how Tang San will be able to get out of this one without revealing his 100,000 ring unless he heavily injures his opponent through some other means.

    • Correction…Spirit douluo…eighty something rank not ninety something. But I agree that it’s really amazing he can cope. It would have been more advantageous for him to use a wider area. The room limits the advantage of teleost ion in my opinion.

      • Not really. He can only teleport up to 10 meters away. So a bigger room would actually be an advantage to speed clan. Wide spaces aids straight line speed.

  13. Wonderful presentation. Thank you so much. Tang San is really powerful. Being able to combine domain, silver emperor and that almighty hammer with teleportation. Add to that vast knowledge, eye techniques, the mastery of poisons and chi techniques…he’s like superman, batman, thor, the flash plus sasuke all in one.
    Would like him to start getting spirit rings for the C.S. hammer soon.

  14. I think if we see any new abilities it would be in his eyes, if they reached the next stage that would be really cool, even though I don’t quite remember what the 4th stage does. :/

    • Nobody knows, because the last time someone was able to reach that stage was so long ago, that only rumors about a mysterious 4th stage exist. But yeah, it would be pretty cool!

  15. I think it will be a contest of endurance for Tang San. He can effectively teleport 100ish times before exhausting his spirit force, assuming he didn’t really use any during the previous contest. Other then maybe releasing his domains, I really don’t think he will reveal anything else. He has been way too careful with the secret of his 100k spirit ring to release his spirit.

    • I wouldnt want that for two reasons. One: bagels is a fantastic translator and the fact that he’s do I g the translation and editing himself is awesome. Two: changing TL’s can fuck up the story and names of characters big time. Just read law of the devil and you’ll see what i mean. The LN has done through about 6 different TL’S and the characters names changed about 12 times except for MC.

          • I think the main issue readers are having is expectations. The reason we keep coming back to this blog is b/c we want to read more. We all know he does this for free because of his passion, but it also had a side effect of creating a need in us, which wants to see how the story progresses.

            Im truly happy and honored that bagelson created this blog and translated this story, but would love to maybe take this to level that wuxiaworld has done with their light novels. Id be happy to donate for translators to to work on this fine story as well.

            I’ve nothing but respect for bagelson and truly want him to enjoy his christmas holidays/new years break, but i would also like to see this light novel continue at a rate similar to those at wuxiaworld.

            • You’re not taking into account chapter length, a chapter of Douluo Dalu is three times as long as a chapter of something like ATG, so he is translating essentially three chapters a week which is basically the same as a lot of the ones on wuxiaworld and the number of regular chapters on others. He does great translations and only ever promised one a week but his average is above 2. Basically a daily wuxiaworld chapter for the last year. So people need to stop complaining as we are getting a lot of material.
