I've (mostly) finished 53, but it can't be released until some can give a better explanation of what's going on on that last page. I've been sitting around for an hour trying to figure it out, but have come to the conclusion that it's hopeless on my own.
Also, I'm 90% sure Ataru had it right the first time, and it's Toriyama's World that made the mistake. The number "999" appears in Kamehame's Japanese wiki entry, but not Jessie's. Given this fact, the last page makes even less sense.
I'm as confused as you. When I started translating it, I thought they were talking of Kamehame having 999 consequetive wins. But then looking at TW's later translation, I then thought it was Jessie Malva who had the win streak, which makes more sense since Kamehame has been defeated and it sounded like Malva was aiming for #1000 (and unifying the Hawaiian and WSA title) with Kinnikuman later. I think somehow a bit of the context may be faulted by Yudetamago themselves by making it sound like it was Kamehame who was the threat instead of Malva, when it more seemed like Kamehame was more a test to see if he was worthy of facing Malva (which he was...but not until he got his body tempered and learned the 48 Killer Moves).
And speaking of chapters with confusion:
-Chp. 58: So if "Choujin" is "Supermen" and "Supermen" is "Choujin"...which do we use and when?: http://mangahelpers....u/releases/8304
Even in Toriyama's World's translation, the 999 victories are only mentioned once in passing. You'd think that if Jessie was trying to get his 1000th win, it would have been brought up again during his fight with Kinnikuman. Anyhow, here's a line from the Japanese wiki entry. Hopefully, it'll clear up the situation.
...and, after much consideration, I've determined that the last page is just a generic "he doesn't know what he's in for. He'll go down like Kamehame did, then he'll lose the champion belt" rant.
Okay, here's what I think I'm gonna do: I'm gonna keep "Supermen" in the names of the organizations, but use "chojin" everywhere else. Knuxie hasn't been around today, so it's not too late to go back and fix it. I'd also like to point out that the manga really doesn't have an official English term for Chojin, either. In chapter 33, it's written "Super Men Olympics", but in 52 it's written as "Superman Olympics", so it's not really consistent.
Edit: Here's 51-53, with all instances of "World Chojin Association" changed to "World Supermen Association". I also went with "Kamehame has 999 wins" for the moment. If we get confirmation otherwise, I'll change it back.http://www.megalopuad.coc/?d=QN7HZZX3
