Kiryu just likes killing bodyguards, he took out a couple of metsudo's guards earlier in the tournament as well.

Either that or he's very mad that his real favorite fighter Muteba is out of the tournament, as we all are

Kiryu killed all of them simply to test his abilities.

Rei didn't notice him until the bodyguard died so it also seems like he's gained a power boost as well.

Oh gee, would you look at that https://mangadex.org/chapter/492061/1

Getting the feeling this is leading to breakup angle and then Rei discovering the meaning of friendship

I mean like half the thread is weirdly fixated on his destruction which makes me feel contrary and also I share his stance on boobs.

Being badass and also an old head assassin from the underworld? Having a pupil now. I think people are confusing thinking Rino being attractive for Rei being more interesting than say, the actor dude.

I can't tell if anyone's being serious about rooting for him or not.

And small side note, did Byo seem bizarrely shrunk all of a sudden to anyone else?

Same, but I don't doubt some people actually like him.

I like them both a lot but I hope Rei wins with the power of love because it's so out of place in this series.

On the other hand Gensai vs Fang seems like a more interesting match, so it's good either way.

What 'the power of love' seems to mean to him (head pats are nice and go fish is fun) is pretty drat weird, too, compared to, say overcoming obstacles to your relationship or saving your beloved from ninjas.

I mean he seems to have been trained from infancy to be a runs fast assassin. His world view might be a bit off.

...Goddamnit, is Rei actually Shadow the Hedgehog?

I think they're gonna resolve Rei's Oppai Love here one way or another, and that's good. I don't really hate the character, I like speedsters, he's just kinda one-note and the note isn't very exciting. Maybe now they finally do something with him tho.

Once again Gensai uses flashback trickery to make his flashback be about Re. Whats genius

RareAcumen
Dec 28, 2012






I feel like this is less a flashback and more just info on the Raishin how Rei's speed works and how it's different from Kiryu's. We didn't really get anything that we didn't already know about besides his weird rear end legs and they're basically just believing their own hype to be that fast.

Raishin style is kinda like Orks in a way.

Manga has always been about exaggeration. A panel about how Byo can still help out against the coup will exaggerate his swoleness. A panel about how Byo is retired will exaggerate how he is much less swole than he used to be.

Art is never going to be perfectly consistent across any series. Things get framed and shrunk as necessary for panel layouts.

Like, would you believe that both of Metsudo's personal bodyguards are actually taller than Julius? But they're always measured against giants and each other while Julius gets multiple panels of him towering over folks.
