It's actually pretty cool that both the writer and the editor have martial arts experience and they rehearse the fights live for Daromeon.

They seem like a cool trio. A writer who runs a bar and went from pushing papers to diving into ruins before coming to this series. An editor working on what I'm guessing is a huge chunk of the series the magazine runs. And the Artist spent a good chunk of his life living overseas and works on video games in his limited spare time.

After this series is completed I hope they collaborate on starting an actual underground fighting tournament.

That last panel was pretty badass, I like that this dude just took the Netero approach to combat by practicing one move a ridiculous amount of times every day.

Koga already revealed his entire backstory during his fight with Kokuro, including his family background and upbringing, why he started doing martial arts, and why he has a feud against Ohma. He has no more flashbacks to draw upon for future fights. How's he possibly gonna win against Ohma2, man of mysteries who has many potential flashbacks to unleash?

They are already doing so. In fact this entire series is a FLASHBACK that secretary lady is telling to her friends. Not-Ohma and Koga have attained unlimited power by using this technique.

sharing bath water is gross

how exactly does this work in households, anyway? I can only tolerate the notion in Japanese bathhouses because the idea is you wash off before you get in the water, and you just soak

I think the shared bath works is that you wash and then rise off. Like you do with dishes... yeah it's weird but it's economical. Guests go first as a sign of respect but Ohma2 drained the tug because he has no idea about etiquette.

was there a time when speedwagon didn't get trolled

Man, the fight choreography in Kengan continues to amaze. I don't think I've ever been confused or having to reread an action segment to get an idea of movement, spacing, and positioning in this manga, which is super rare for action manga.

The art is amazing of course, but the choreography is what really elevates it to another level. Everything is so concise and clear with strong distinct action lines that make reading the momentum of moves effortless.

My favorite example is Muteba's eye poke fakeout heart jab. It was hard to see the move intentionally, but once you saw him cough up blood you go back and you see the more subtle attack clearly hidden in the eyepoke.

Don't forget that after Kaneda's match with Gaolang, Himuro talked about how cool Kaneda looked during the fight and how he (Himuro) wanted to kiss Kaneda.

So yeah, those two are totally a couple now.

So does Koga have Kazzy eyes and he's going to be copy ninja? It was kind of done in Asura with the Sonny Chiba guy and suggested that it could be a pretty strong fighting style.

Yeah I have no doubts now that Ryuki is the hooded guy in the last chapter of Kengan Asura. Biggest question now is why he’s here. Maybe he’s investigating Kazuo because he was Ohma’s sponsor?

what makes you say that? based on Ryuki's reaction to just hearing the word "worm" it seems like he's been trying to hunt down the hooded guy

He uses the gaoh style which while similar is pretty clearly not the Niko style as well

Well for one thing they said the hooded guy was the last heir to the Niko style and Ryuki is obviously using a variant of it. In fact Gaoh style is probably the “original” Niko style that Gaoh used.

New chapter and Class in session.
Himuro has made a solid comeback with just 1 chapter given how he had to sit out the entire last series because of that broken arm. I think Yamashita's company is being used to filter and search for people (maybe the worms) or maybe as a starting point for a new Association. The penalty for "causing" a fighter's death alone would be sufficient to curb fatalities and companies could always hire an extra fighter to make the rotation 3-4 instead of 2-3 and not hire people who kill as a tactic. So having a pool of 500+ fighters that are freelance is interesting, maybe Nogi wants to set up a branch competition with those 500+ as the foundation over time?
