Kid, don't threaten me. There are worse things than death, and uh, I can do all of them.


I would be extremely down with a surreal slice of life about the Kure clan, with daily life interspersed with brutal assasinations and extremely weird family interactions

From the perspective of a relatively normal (but strong) person that married in would be really great. Start with a summary of their dating life and the foreshadowing, then a strange wedding. During the honeymoon the Kure spouse is preparing to confess the true nature of the family when they get called in to do an emergency hit

Jerry's Back!!! Also the reason why Julius is in instead of Muteba. Wonder how the Carlos dude can fare since he's so loving tiny and skinny, he's a boxer so he must be insanely fast with punching though.

Well, if they're going by Purgatory rules go figure.

Props to the ex-Fang for attempting to be as big a dick as possible in each and every one of his appearances.

Cheering for handsome lad Gaolong since Saw Paing isn't here.

It definitely feels like they're trying to hurry this tournament along, which I think is good. Just a nice fast paced appetizer of top tier fighters competing and old faces getting some more matches before they move on to the main course after the tournament.

gaolang's a cool guy and all, but his opponent is a boxer from a much lower weight class. you've gotta admire those guts.

I still think its kinda hilarious that Purgatory, which was kinda hyped as this alternate, evil, hardcore version of Kengan tournament actually has far saner and less ruthless rules than Kengan matches. Also I agree that the Ex-Fang dude is really committed to maximizing his rear end in a top hat points and it rules. :allears:

He's probably this guy from Fist of the Seeker, they are pretty similar.

Cool Raian is an absolute lad, gently caress the cop. Also I feel bad for Koga, he was getting super buff just before being severly injured.

So it seems, honestly when I saw Gaolang as the first fighter I was expecting team Purgatory to pick a grappler to counter him, I guess that was too cliche for this manga.

Probably not. I can't imagine Gaolong not using his Muay Thai if he needs to.

Seriously, I love it. He's not looking to prove a point or defeat his fated rival or anything like that, he's just doing whatever he can to absolutely maximize how much of a shithead he is and it's absolutely hilarious.

Edward didn't actually ask to be in the tournament for Purgatory, just that he wanted one of Toyoda's slots. I assume the masked man is the rep from the Worms and given the stature and hairstyle Maybe a clone of Agito

Lol Koga's so loving out of his league. When he invented his Secret Deadly Technique you could actually see him doing it if you were paying attention. Carlos on the other hand, you've got nothing to see and now Yumigahara's nose is broken.

It is implied that Koga's has Kazzy's "kinetic vision" or whatever it's called and he already demonstrated that he is pretty good at copying and utilizing techniques he observes. And he will be watching the whole tournament. What I'm saying is that this is basically his training arc.

As much as I like Gaolang I'm rooting for Carlos if only to get a scene where the audience faintly hears Saw Paing screaming from thousands of miles away

I predict Gaolang is going to struggle a lot in this fight, but at the last moment Fisherman Grandpa will appear to inspire him and win with the power of bromance.

Ring out = instant DQ is the only Purgatory rule I don't care for and I hope it doesn't figure into any results but if it was a compromise Nogi had to make to get Jerry and Sayaka as our announcers it was the right call to make.

Of all the returning fighters. If Gaolang doesn't win I might actually drop the series because he got robbed in the main one vs Agito and I will not be able to withstand Gaolang becoming the Worf of the series.

Gaolang jobbing would bum me out but I guess the ring out stuff is so people can lose without getting super, super hosed up. Two boxers fighting without ropes could lead to a ring out.

In his moment of greatest extremis, Gaolang will look to the audience, spot Fishing Grandpa, and deliver a brutal knockout punch to Carlos while making the :geno: face.

The surest way to make us love Carlos is to give him flashbacks about his past and background, showing us that he is fighting to pay for his little sister's medical bills to treat her mysterious incurable illness.

And we all know what happens when someone gets flashbacks in this series.
