this is an interesting direction to take. I assumed Ryuki would trounce people for a while like Ohma but giving him an angle for personal growth is good

Same reason Ohma beat Raian, incredibly flimsy writing. Two of the worst fights in the series back to back.

Akoya did beat Cosmo, the latter was literally unconscious at one point during their fight. It's just that Akoyas cop instincts kicked in and he couldn't help but torture Cosmo which woke him up and allowed him to win.

Akoya lost the fight. And him torturing someone is completely uncharacteristic when every fight before and now after, has him going for nothing but the kill when he goes full mad dog. Haru wasn't going to be tortured, he was going to be killed had the fight dragged on longer. He killed the butcher guy instantly, and he killed all the Yakuza heads by decapitation. The only thing close to torture he did was giving the Medical student a gun and a chance to fight back, and you can consider that psychological torture if you want, but the reality is Akoya killed that kid instantly as well.

Akoya doesn't torture, it made no sense he decided to give Cosmo any out.

Oh yeah that was bullshit as well. Raian was supposed to be physically superior to Wakatsuki, not even considering the Kure techniques that he refused to use.

Raian wasn't drawn like an important character he looks like a generic mid-boss. I never had high hopes for him.

Power levels are bullshit, all that matters is who reveals their backstory first, this is known.

don't become a cop, ryuki

also ohma vs raian and cosmo vs akoya might've been bad, but they led to ohma vs cosmo which was honestly one of my favorite fights in the series.

timing of backstory * how good your crazy face is + the number of friends you have = kengan asura power levels

and if you make it so that revealing your backstory also reveals your opponent's backstory then it has an exponential effect, which is Kuroki Gensai is the strongest

Against Haru Akoya recognized that Haru himself was completely loving out of it at that moment and torture would have no use against him.

Against Cosmo, well Cosmo himself could be regarded by Akoya as not a bad seed but rather a child in need of a lesson. and HE WAS GONNA TEACH HIM A LESSON.

Didn't Cosmo say something that triggered him? Like implied that his justice was bullshit or something. I remember Cosmo did something that made Akoya really mad.
