  1. I’m thinking Dubai is going to get a Spirit bone. His current abilities paired up with that? Nice.

    Or maybe Bai will get it, to augment her attack power and possibly wind use? Can’t wait to see what it really does. 😀

    • Considering the cyan wolftaken specialized in speed and evasion, it seems like a perfect fit for Bai. She also really needs a boost if in order to not be a burden throughout their training. They’ll probably have Ma Hongjun give it to her as a way to win her over.

      • Agreed. I can see it now… Hongjun with his injuries and blood covered body walks up to Bai and says, “Here, I got this for you.”

      • It’s a good idea, but it seems Mubai is the only Devil who doesn’t have a spirit bone (Xiao Wu doesn’t count). But that spirit bone must suit him to make sense.

        Thanks for the chapter.

        • Isn’t it weird that Mubai who is next heir to the empire’s throne can’t get a hand on spirit bones? Sure, star luo empire isn’t as rich as spirit hall, but still a spirit bone or two shouldn’t be out of reach.

          • The Star Luo Empire does not assists it’s heirs until they prove they have the strength to succeed the throne. It is how they ensure a monarch who is strong in mind body and soul. Boss Dai talks to Tang San a little about it after they defeat the Star Luo Empire team and their older siblings.

      • I’m pretty sure the spirit bone will go to Mubai. For one, it’s from a similar class of spirit beasts: wolves and tigers are both predators, focused on attack strength. Plus, as a main attacker, if the spirit bone gives a speed and agility boost, it will be useful to him. More importantly though, I’m thinking that the Wolftaken boss’s Bloodlust ability was unique to him. Otherwise, the other two would likely have gone into bloodlust the moment they were trapped in the Blue Silver Prison. If the ability was unique to the leader, then it may have had to do with this spirit bone. If the spirit bone could give Mubai a frenzy ability, that could be immensely useful.

  3. Thanks for the chapters, its been a long time coming. IMO I feel dai mubai should be more powerful than this, maybe its because the novel focuses on tang San but I think for a 64/65 ranked power attack spirit master, his feats are quite poor. I know I’m not the author but..its just a little bit…….. Maybe I should just write my own fan fiction to satisfy my imagination

    • Well, they did say he was in the best condition after that fight, and he didn’t use his sixth spirit ability, so he was still holding back. Also, it’s quite possible he has a spirit bone by now since he became the crown prince. I’m sure he’ll have his moment.

  5. So, I’m a guy, but I can’t help finding this author really sexist. He’s said a lot about Fatty’s supposedly sincere feelings, but the whole time he’s been treating Bai like a piece of meat. The only reason Fatty likes her is because she’s hot. He doesn’t know anything about her, let alone care about her feelings. And now they have her getting scared by a mouse – just about the most sexist cliche ever – and starting to fall for Fatty because of it. I am not rooting for Fatty’s romance at all, even though I know it’s inevitable.

    Like

    • Well, actually you can say the same about Bai: the only reason she doesn’t like him is because he’s fat and ugly. She doesn’t know anything about him, let alone about his feelings. And now that she gets scared, she immediately runs into his arms, while just a while ago she told him not to touch her. But yeah the scared by a mouse part was pretty cliché.

      • She knows that he went behind her back to her grandfather, she can clearly see that he goes for her mostly because of her looks (the scene where he licked his lips form looking at her and made her thing that he was going to rape her was purly his foult) and despite being a spirit master that doesn’t have to eat much and can lose weight quickly he is fat witch tells us that he is lazy. Also ever since he met her he has been doing what Tang san told him and went to him for help insted of doing things himslef (we know that this is a smart decision but for her point of view it may not look so nice)

        Of course she hasent been perfect but lets be honest fatty is alone for a reason, but I think that if he works on it she will open up to him since he does have good qualities its just that he shows off the bad ones most of the time

        • “She knows … because of her looks” – Strike One (she didn’t like the idea WAY before the lips part and the looks, gt your timestamping in check). And let me tell you, if you’re a pretty girl and someone who is interested in women (regardless of gender) talks to you – it’s because of your looks. It goes the other way around as well.
          “was purely his foult” – Strike Two (which is purely your fault).
          “and despite … that he is lazy” – Strike Three, you’re out. This concept is not true because A) the story told you specifically that he CANNOT lose weight that easily, as early as the first physical training you met him doing (GM HT #1). B) The story explains why. C) This idiotic, moronically wrong, widespread misconception (“people are fat because they’re too lazy to work out”) is the basis to the single most underhanded undercover discrimination that is widely *accepted and encouraged* no matter which country you’re in – discrimination against fat people. Don’t believe me, check out the numbers.

          l could point out further hypocritical “arguments” you put up but at this point really just go take your self righteous ass and check your ways before preaching to the behavior of a *fictional* character from a *fantasy world* of an ancient culture that is strange to your culture like the moon to mice.

          TL;DR
          l’ll just qoute Knife Party from Piledriver: “Fuck off!”

          Yours truly,
          Me.

          • 1 a)Obviously people go for looks first but not the way Ma Hongjun does. There is a difference between looking at someone like a piece of meat and trying to get someone to go out with you. You can be a gentleman or you can be gross and he is gross. b)The moment with the lips was the most “traumatic” for her and scared her the most so it has significant impact on how she viewed him when she distanced herself for him even more than before.

            2 Yes, it was.

            3 It was said that it was his spirits fault but guess what mister I read every chapter except for the one where Tang San gives him a Immortal Treasure Herb that purifies his spirit thus making its bad side effects disappear. Oh and lets not forget that when Tang San (the guy who knows more about Ma Hongjun and his problems than us) tells that he really needs to lose some weight and all that Fatty has to say is “Er…lose weight, I’m afraid it’s too difficult.” Why is it difficult? Because he is lazy and undisciplined. He didnt even reach level 60 because of this and was scolded by bouth Tang San and Grandmaster. His only response to that was silance, a joke or that he was constantly being distracted by the life in the big city. Being easy going is a huge part of fattys personality but guess what he goes to far with it.

            4 Thanks to you saying “C) This idiotic, moronically wrong, widespread misconception (“people are fat because they’re too lazy to work out”)” Now I know that you are just some stupid brat that heard something on TV and is repeating it to look smart. Sorry asshole but I am someone who went form 130 to 94 kilograms so I know more about this then a pile of shit like you ever will. The best part is that it took me over 3 years to do this because my body very easily absorbs fat and calories while losing them at a lower rate then others which means that despite doing more work then most people who are “in shape” in the last year of training and dieting I had at most normal results. I had to start by doing static exercises just so that my body would be able to endure the amount of training it would take for me to be at a minus intake of calories even when using only diets that were given to me by a doctor that I had to visit at least once a week. There are pople who have worked even harder to do this because there where other things hindering them like gentic problems (which could aplly to Ma Hongjun but guess who got cured by his third brother years ago)

            TL:DR
            Go and fuck yourself (Sorry no qoute because compered to you I dont need to qoute others jsut to say somethign so simple to someone else)

            Ps. The number of people that is actually fat because of diseases or genetic problems is very small the rest is just fucking lazy and nothing more.

His “evil fire” made him like that and yes the fire was cured but after years of repeated effects it would psychologically alter his mind. If you constantly take aphrodisiacs and have sex, even if you stop there is still lasting effects to the mind. Even tang San said spirit sage healers couldn’t effect things like this

              If you think “bad metabolism” is even nearing (from below) the median of causes and symptoms leading to being morbidly over-weight (not necessarily obese), don’t make me laugh.
              I do not belittle three years of work – l’m just saying you aren’t even aware of how easy you had it (in comparison). If you feel hurt because this victim-hood is your trump card in this regard, l’m not moved.

              If you think you’re talking to a guy who repeats TV stuff when you’re writing to someone who doesn’t even have a TV nor watches it via web streaming… l have little more to say. Some people can actually look at social behavior and come to conclusions themselves.

              Lastly, something to ponder – why are you using bad language and slander in a rather civilized argument?
              And yes, I advise you to actually listen to the above (which is why I bothered to specify the title of it) before you get the context of the remark before banging thrice on your chest and charging head on. I have a feeling you really got a nerve struck somewhere there, perhaps even pricked.

              • I have the feeling that this argument has generally gotten pretty heated… (although some are calmer than others). Maybe everybody could calm down? And especially stop using certain adjectives – and nouns.

                True, Bai Chenxiang never liked the idea of being with Fatty. Even before he behaved lewdly in front of her. But I think some of his behaviour is a pretty good reason for not changing her opinion on him. If he had behaved as gentlemanly as he claimed he were, then she would have a reason to change her opinion.

                As for the weight part: yes, there are a multitude of reasons for being overweight. Some can be easily corrected, some can’t. And by the way, unless Fatty is seriously small, 100kg isn’t even that much for an adult man. Especially a trained one. There is a reason why the weight of athletes can’t be judged by normal standards. Muscles are heavy. So yes, Fatty is overweight, but it shouldn’t be as bad as it is sometimes made out to be.

                Hmm… I have the feeling, I went somewhat off topic here… if I did, I apologize.

                • Wow, I was really not expecting to kick off this kind of hostile discussion with my initial comment. Some things I do want to say, though – Fatty needing to eat excessively was in the manga. In the light novel he needed to have sex, and yes that was cured. While the exact reason for him being fat has never been stated, it’s generally been implied that he has no motivation to try to change that. Especially since it was stated that he got much fatter during the 2 years he was slacking off and fell behind in cultivation, to that point that he was described as being completely round. So, while I don’t think it’s necessarily reasonable to expect him to ever have a physique comparable to the others, he certainly could be doing better.

                  Also, whatever flaws Bai has do not excuse Fatty’s behavior. That’s called victim blaming. And really, Bai along with most other girls in this story being angry, violent, but ridiculously hot, total b*tches is just another example of an over the top sexist stereotype in this story.

        And I also think that his behaviour towards her so far didn’t exactly give her a reason to like him. I’d be pissed as well, if a guy I didn’t want to marry went to my grandfather (or whoever was responsible for me) to ask for my hand in marriage. Without asking my opinion.
        And I agree with everybody who is annoyed by the ‘scared of a mouse’ cliché.

        • Nope. He had not been in the spirit arena more than a single time and it was against the Tai brothers. He is nicknamed asura because as Dai Mubai said, even though he looks normal if Xiao Wu is in danger he really flips out. The thousand hands is absolutely from the time he fought wuji to get into shrek. It is derived from his hidden weapon lethality, as he seems to have one thousand hands when using them. The asura is Boss dais addition.

          • He fought in the Spirit Arena an entire month… as did all the other Shrek Seven Devils. And I personally think that the Thousand Hands Asura refers to his Spirit (blue Silver grass) as well as his hidden weapons. After all, the name was given to him for the fights in the spirit arena. True, the Asura part was given to him by Dai Mubai and likely refers to how ferocious he can become, but the Thousand Hands part was given to him by Grandmaster. And since all the names refer to the spirits, it is likely that his does as well.

    • Luck ? Are you sure ? It’s wrote that “The Cyan Wolftaken attacking Tang San was the most tyrannical amongst them, and was also the largest; its spirit power was also no less than Tang San’s.”.
      With Tang San’s power, this sentence means that this Wolftaken is equivalent to a several ten thousand year Spirit Beast (more than 30 000 year).
      You should remember the older is the beast, the higher is the chance for a spirit bone to appear.

      The two others Cyan Wolftaken had power equivalent to Dai Mubai when he was in the fifties ranks. That’s high too.

      There were about 300 others Wolftaken. Even if those were weak, with such a high number of beasts, the probability for one spirit bone to appear was really high.

      So I don’t consider it a luck. It’s more a reward.

      Like

      • Plus the chances of a spirit bone showing up go way up when the spirit beast harbors a huge resentment to its sole killer. Tang San clearly was the lunch pin that dealt with the other two cyan Wolftaken and he alone used his one thousand and one nights to kill the lead Wolftaken who had just invoked what it thought was its biggest surefire trump-Bloodlust. So if in the milliseconds before one thousand and o e nights turned to lonely death, i’d say the lead cyan Wolftaken harbored some major resentment towards Tang San alone, thus greatly increasing the chances for a spirit bone.

        Like

    • They just killed several hundred spirit beast-like creatures. It had been explicitly stated in a much earlier chapter, when spirit bones were first introduced, that Spirit Hall had forbidden the ‘poaching’ of spirit beasts to keep populations in line. If that weren’t the case, there’d be a lot of ill-reputed spirit masters going around ‘farming’ spirit bones. Obviously, they couldn’t shirk on the slaughter here, so they reapt the corresponding rewards. If you kill enough mobs even the rarest items will certainly start dropping. So, in my mind this isn’t a case of extraordinary luck. If the Wolftaken are more akin to spirit masters in how they obtain spirit bones, it becomes even less a matter of luck, since powerful spirit masters, especially those with a lot of backing, are more likely to have at least one spirit bone. In that case, the Wolftaken leader could be compared to, say, Shi Nian (the Brutal Dream spirit sage Tang San killed with Yama’s Invitation).

      If you want cases of luck, I’d mention how Tang San got an external spirit bone (twice, technically; the Spider Lances just cannibalized the second one), or how Oscar’s Mirror Image Beast came packed with a skull bone.

Between the flashes of light, the opponents Ma Hongjun and Dai Mubai were facing became trapped in a huge Blue Silver Prison. Although they had the ability to appear illusory, it was not enough for them to breakthrough these restraints. What’s more, to play it safe, Tang San had also used his upgraded Death God Domain ability, Death God Assault, together with the Blue Silver Prison. ”

    How come he can activate both in the same time? I thought Deathgod domain was linked to the Clear Sky Hammer and he was using his Blue Silver Emperor spirit at the time…

    Based on the strength shown, Tang San should have no problem killing all 300 wolftaken by himself, just using physical attacks (spider lances) and by absorbing their vitality he would never tire.

    His absorption ability should make him kinda invincible against innumerable weak mobs.

    • Tang San couldn’t have killed 300 even if he had died. With his strength, he could win against a spirit master 10 ranks higher than him easily, PROVIDED they do not restrict his spirit, ASSUMING they have physical strength of that of a normal human. Wolftaken were significantly stronger PHYSICALLY than a normal human. Besides they were ferocious.
      Coming to the 2nd part, the strength of that cyan wolf could be estimated by:

      “Suddenly, a large force collided with him from the side, forcing him to withdraw his Eight Spider Lances and sending him tumbling away in the air. That impact made the blood in in his chest rumble.
      And this was only because his body was already extra sturdy, and was somewhat protected by his Eight Spider Lances: if it was any other normal spiritmaster, taking a blow like that would have sent him half to death”

He had yet to release past the 4th spirit ring, but Fatty was in a dire situation, since he got so injured in the sneak attack, and the opponent was much faster than him, he was at a major disadvantage. Had Tang San not acted when and how he did, even though Fatty has tremendous power it wouldn’t have meant shit since he couldn’t hit the cyan Wolftaken attacking him.

      • Bagel did 203, and he is doing 206, so where do you get this is being dropped? Nowhere, you just want to troll, and no one likes trolls. Well, good trolls are something one can enjoy from time to time, but you are just lame.

        Oh, and the cookie wasn’t from me, I wouldn’t give you a particle of dust to you even if your life depended on it.
        Have a nice day ;D

        • Firstly, if you’ve got hate that’s your own problem, second when did i demand anything? When did I say I was entitled to anything?

          Put your “I’ll defend the translators” boner away Kevin, I didn’t say I deserve anything, I made a few statements that have yet to be denied by the person they are about AND far as you or I know could be temporarily true! Bagel hasn’t been translating like he used to, MAYBE he is taking a break, meaning he did quit temporarily, YOU KNOW JUST AS MUCH AS I DO MR. KEYBOARD WARRIOR! You just don’t like my opinion on the matter or what I am saying so you result to attacks, trying to swing your big translator boner around telling people they are entitled, when in fact its you who is entitled, you think your entitled to being right, entitled to tell me to shut up, well you aren’t and nothing I said has any hate towards you or anyone else on here, all I stated was what I thought. You decided it must be an attack on your precious Translator so you grabbed your trusty keyboard sword and started wanking it all over pretending to defend your king from an attack you created. So piss off ya bloody nob

    • No no no.

      If you are going to use an analogy at least use a proper one!

      I’m more like the quiet jokerster kid at primary school, the one you feel really uncomfortable around just me and you but like to see messing with the bullies, the one who is fun to have in a group but you don’t want as a partner.

      And I wouldn’t call myself a Troll, at least not intentionally a Troll, but these Nobs are too easy even when I’m posting semi-serious discussion/guesses about our beloved Translators. PLUS putting a wanking Keyboard warrior is his little place as the mighty evil wizard is a sick pleasure of mine so I always come back for some of that.

      Honestly I’m glad I wasn’t correct, I’ve been with Bagelson since chapter 22 it has been a long strange journey with this wonderful Douluo Dalu world, but all the same I would say what I have said again because until our good Scholarly Sir David pointed to Bagelson being active on Reddit, I assumed he fell off the face of the planet and thus would be quitting his translations.

  22. These below comments from Bagelson on reddit 5 days ago should put all speculations to rest:

    Comment 1: 5 days ago
    “I’m actually working on a teaser translation, so I could tell you. My current problem is that I got so caught up in it I’ve read 200 chapters instead of translating the 3rd.
    It’s part of my private quest to diversify the kind of Chinese fiction we get translated, more than just fantasy, xianxia and historical romance drama.
    If I were to define its genres, it sort of fits into (but doesn’t focus on any of): sci-fi, mecha, school life, VR, military, romance, xianxia.”

    My Interpretation: This guy loves translating and is passionate about bringing Chinese stories out for the world to read. He is not gonna stop DD translations. But with his attention diverted to other series, we should expect (and respect his decision) less chapters per week (just 1 or 2).

    Comment 2: 28 days ago
    “Two hundred chapters. It took a while, but it’s finally here. Only 24 more chapters to the 2/3’s mark of the series. 200 chapters might not sound much, especially when compared to some really prolific series out there. But consider that all of Douluo Dalu’s 336 chapters is about 3 million characters. By comparison, all the current 270+ chapters of True Martial World still hasn’t reached 800k characters, and all of Coiling Dragon is about 3.4 million. The 5300+ chapters of Bringing The Farm is close to 19 million.
    EDIT: Oh, and chapter 201 will be up as soon as Google Drive lets me publish it.”

    My Interpretation: He is determined to finish this series. He is facing troubles and hence delays due to Google drive.

  23. If anyone wants to read something whilst waiting for a new DLDL release you could try Tower Of God by SIU, its a korean webtoon thats really good that also has a gifted but clueless MC similar to Tang San in that they both come from different worlds & are amazing when they get thrown into their new lives. Its coloured & comes out weekly. I would also like to point out to people to stop bitching & whining about when we’re all gonna get a new chapter, fuck! Chill the fuck down! People have lives & the translators aren’t your property so go play some xbox or something. Seriously we cant keep going through peoples whiny shit every week & most important possibly discourage the translators who do DLDL as a hobby that benefits people but that they also do it for FREEEEEEE!!! chillax eat a snickers bc you aint yourself when your like this….or maybe your douche & this is who you are. & if anyone has any recommendations for anything similar to DLDL i’d love to read it, thx!

      P.S. it is spelt with two L’s r-e-a-L-L-y and the proper grammatical term would be “then” not “than” .

      I know second grade grammar and spelling can be hard when you’re worried what the great Rick will respond with, which is probably why your comment is so vague, but fear not little commoner! For I have only responded with knowledge for you, as you seemed very lacking in that regard.

          I mean despite my humble way of speaking I am indeed gay and was made fun of in High School, but I became a Scientist, had a wonderful daughter who I don’t say that often enough to, though her husband makes you look intelligent. My grandson is well on his way to following in my footsteps to be a great man. I mean I invented a spaceship out of the junk my daughters husband thinks is “neat”, can you do that my Anonymous friend? I thought not. How about a hand held inter-dimensional-inter-universal portal device? No? Bummer.

    Think of all the bullshit Tang San had to do to reach his level, and some random wolfmen are just stronger than him
    That the main obe had been around for 20000 years is total freaking bullshit, it wouldve either gotten killed for attacking human places all the time or it wouldve exterminated all humans in the area
