    On the second page of this chapter Ichigo said, that his attack doesnt work, and called it Gekka Tenshou.

    Is this a translator mistake or some new attack? :distracted

    Mangastream called it a regular GT, we won't know which is right until someone gets a look at the raw.

    Gekka seems something related to the moon- when I read it, I thought of that song. I don't know its exact meaning though.

    I bet it's just an incorrect romanization :distracted

    If this is just an incorrect romanization than... just... :giogio
    This manga is releasing for 10 years, with Getsuga known for 8 at least, and to translate it incorrectly is just :giogio

    The problem is those mightn't be the kanji used for "Gekka", so we'd need to see the raw to be sure.

    I would love for it to be a new technique because Gekka Tenshou = Moonlight Piercing Fang, but it's just translation error.

    God forbid that Ichigo gets a second technique 500 chapters in.

    Im not against Ichigo having a new attack, just wondering if it is really a new one.

    It appears the translator confused the syllable 'tsu' (つ) from 'Getsuga' with the sukuon (っ) that only means the next consonant is repeated (so, 'Gekka').

    They missed the dakuten on the ka as well. It's not as if GT is a new move, so when you see the kanji for it, you really should be almost autopiloting into the standard translation rather than something new.

    Seeing some chatter that the guy who translated this chapter doesn't read Bleach, which might go ways to explaining it. Pretty much every other translation was spot-on though which is weird if that was the case.

    Mystery solved, he says just Getsuga Tenshou. What an epic fucking fail from mangapanda.
