I thought that Koga already knew Gaoh had killed dudes and didn't seem to think much about killing.

Koga's pretty much the only person in the series to NOT pick up on Gaoh's bloodlust IIRC

Koga knew Gaoh was shady, but he didn't know that he was a cold blooded killer that treated human life as basically worthless and was only really kept in check by societal expectations.

was there a time when speedwagon didn't get trolled

Yeah Koga knew that Gaoh had a super intense mean side based on watching him fight, but there's a big gap between that and "murdering a guy in cold blood in an alleyway in so one-sided a way that you don't even get dirty in the process and being completely unaffected by it".

"He's huge. Somewhere around two meters, I'd say."

man i always get hosed when the actual height of characters in manga is brought up, because i always subconciously add like 5-6 inches to them.

here's a mountain of a man, who needs to duck under under door frames. he's around 6' 4-6"

4 inches or so is roughly the difference in average heights between Japan and the US, so...

6' 6-7'' plus. I am 5'10'' and if I was 8 inches higher I'd be brushing against door frames at my work. Around 2 meters can be over as well as under. So he could be around 2 meters but a little taller at which point yeah you need to duck a little for doorframes. In addition the average height of a doorframe is 6' 8'' and when a person walks they bob a little, so It seems logically he'd need to duck a bit to fit In a common door.


Maybe Japan has lower door frames? :shrug:

One thing I'm really enjoying about Omega is how, as Koga is starting from the bottom, we get a feel for how truly strong the cast of Asura were. Ouma pretty much started in the upper tier of Kengan fighters, and then grew stronger (or rather, regained his original strength) as he went up against the best of the best.

Meanwhile, the new dude gave Koga a ton of trouble, but he's literally bottom-tier with only one victory over someone who never won.

Komada got trashed by Ouma, but even he was 4-0 in official Kengan fights. Small wonder Hatsumi thought it would be okay to just leave the remaining Kengan fights to Komada. A buncha other named characters got bodied during the free-for-all in the boat, but they were all pretty powerful dudes, it was just that the dudes who made it out were otherworldly strong.

I'm also excited for Ryuki vs Killer Cop because this is the first time we'll get a good measure for Ryuki's strength in relation to the original Asura cast. Cosmo might have won in his fight against Killer Cop, but he came off far, far worse than the dude. Dude's a monster, both morally and physically.

Like even the overweight dude who uses tricks would probably manhandle Koga as he is now.

The most important takeaway from this is that Rihito is actually very powerful and skilled.

He is, I mean he successfully operated his own business, hired employees and got contracts after Nogi yeeted it onto him. Also isn't he the one out of the dumbass crew to have higher education?

Rihito's only losses were either to martial arts masters like Ohma and Kuroki Gensai or monsters like Raian, dude's strong and I 100% expect him to take part in the tournament in Kuroki's place.

In Kuroki's behind the scenes page they mentioned him originally being planned to forfeit the first round and mentor Rihitio through the tournament, wouldn't surprise me if they used that bit in this tournament.
