Was it ever explained why Ohma using advance doesn't just gently caress up his new heart? Was it explained as the Kure teaching him tricks or something?

yeah he learned how to properly use it right before the final fight

Rereading the end of ka and I think the fang Vs gensai fight is probably the best manga martial arts fight made

That manga was just packed full of sick shots. Rei charging into Gensai's fist and ramping in the process and crashing into the floor owned.

The whole "predict what the guys going to do before he does it and vice versa and it goes on and on" poo poo is a pretty ancient trope as far as martial arts fiction goes, but Kengan is one of the few times where I don't just roll my eyes and imagine making a jacking off motion when it happens

There's so many hype panels though! I am really fond of the end of chapter HAMMER OF BURMA

Also I really like how crazed Wakatsuki looked like at the end of the fight with Julius, like it took everything out of him (even though I don't think Wakatsuki's that interesting overall)

Gaolong coming into the ring to fight Fang is great too, those black wisps were just oomph

Kengan is good guys

Same. The Powerbomb and body slam from his sumo fight. And the entire Muteba fight are just great. It's a real shame Seki isn't fighting in this tournament because every time he's on screen I know there's going to be a great show.

We got a flashback opener. And this guy probably has two or three in reserve for the fight. GAOLONG is in trouble.

I'm so glad this series is being done by Hokuto no Gun, they really do it justice. The typesetting in particular is unreal.

Gaolang could take this one but it all depends on how long Carlos has been fighting in Purgatory. If he's been there for a while then even his Muay Thai won't be enough to take him down either.

i vaguely recall that gaolang's big twist in ka was that he did not switch to muay thai under duress. he stuck with boxing to the bitter end. did that actually happen?

Halfway there! He did switch, and everyone expected him to switch to Muay Thai, but he switched to something "beyond Muay Thai." Going off memory, was it...lethwei?

He doesn't commit to using Muay Thai as he still retains an emphasis on boxing punches. Really, he's using something more akin to Muay Mat.

of course not

so the opening to the current fight is sort of the opposite to the gaolang's first fight in ashura

That's totally a ginga that Carlos is doing in the final panel so I'd say yes.
