The madman set up a honey trap for Wakayama.

@pokefairy He looks like Gyro from Steel Ball Run if you're down with JoJo. (SBR is really good too)

@FRESH That's what I thought at first, but it seemed weird that Wakayama was willing to give up so much gold on a hunch, no matter how likely it is. Plus, the candy peddler's line about Wakayama's disappointed face makes it sound like the candy peddler was there to see him realize the skins were useless, and that something the candy peddler did or said caused Wakayama to realize it.

@spurgleburgle I think the deal is simply that to decode the message you need all the skins, and the reality is that the chances of getting them all is pretty low when there are so many and belonging to criminals, so it's only natural that a few skins will be lost somehow, thus making it impossible to decode, or so they think.

I guess it's still not clear what the deal is with the skins being useless, but from Wakayama's last line and the candy peddler's comment, it sounds like the candy peddler ruined the game. He may have been a convict and purposely gotten another tattoo to replace his own, just out of the sadistic pleasure of seeing everyone hunting for the skins realize that they're useless.

pretty sure the pirate guy is just telling Sugimoto what he wants to hear and his family did not in fact die of pox

The homoerotic tension Boutarou brings to the table is incredible, I love this man. That being said, if he joins the gang, I can only foresee danger coming to the group.

Also Asirpa just casually kicking an old man off a boat is incredibly funny to me.

Damn I like Boutarou, I hope he doesn't die.

And agree, he brought up a good point about Sugimoto: He did suffer a brain injury and walked it off, does he still remember he wanted the money for an eye surgery for the woman he loved? She probably wont die but she may as well be completely blind by now. And if that happens, maybe they even trick her into losing her own home. She also had a kid to care for if memory serves right.

@rrolo1 i guess the point of pirate's question falls on Your Own Happiness here. the flashback reveals the sugimotos' altruistic personality and by this rencontre with pirate sugimoto remembers his father's last words: try to live for your own sake... yet he still can't answer pirate's question because unlike others involved in the gold hunt, he doesn't have a goal exclusively for himself. until now it is either for toraji/umeko or asirpa's sake

Not even tuberculosis can get Sugimoto ! ;)

That said, Mr Pirate has a point: does Sugimoto even remember why is he after the gold? TBH the people he wanted to help in the beginning are most likely already dead , given the time it already passed in story, but apparently no one knows or remember Sugimoto original propose in getting the gold at this point ... not even him :D

@ukimix well, considering that setting is realistic, but plot itself isn't bound by history, there is a chance that Asirpa will end up leading her people into future and won't have time for other things, while Sugimoto will be left out.
Avatar
@Big_Boss At the end if Sugimoto is sad Asirpa will also be sad. So I go for a happy realistic end, because, no one messes with Asirpa, not even Noda.

my cat does the exact same thing when I pat her butt, wouldn't be surprised if Noda has a cat himself

Oops, will the pirate think Shiraishi's group killed Heita
Avatar
We all know that all he wants is 200 yen to send to Ume so she can recover her sight, but after that, he'll probably just stay with Huci and Asirpa. It'll be the others who'll take the gold and fight among themselves.

Boutarou's getting more interesting! I wonder if he would ended up dead in the end?

Shiraishi certainly looks uncomfortable around Boutarou. Do they really have a connection before?
Avatar
Interesting to see where his "I'm immortal" mindset originated from. Wasn't even from the war but rather further back.

I'd like to add that Boutarou is a subtle foil to Sugimoto; both have a strong will but one lives for himself while the other lives for other people.

This is the beggining of a terrible alliance which will most likely end in a lot of stabbing.

Idk why but Young Sugimoto looks so weird without his hat lol.
