Not intelligently defending himself, so she's trying to trigger a down for a count, I guess.

In this case it's purgatory rules. A knockdown calls for a 10 count and the special exception from the previous round has already been lifted.

Okay, everyone looks weird but the animation in the Kengan anime isn't nearly as bad as I was assuming it would be.

But drat, you don't really need to mess with the dialogue guys! Kuroki saying 'I have killed you twice' is a much stronger line than 'You have lost twice now'

Okay, so somebody get stabbed with a hand and massive blood spray went up but that happens a lot in this manga so I'm not convinced that was a kill shot.

That wouldn't make sense imo. He's the Okubo of Purgatory side, and he's cementing his "wtf, fighing to kill? that's gross" persona here. Naidan fooled him, I still believe the vessel is Fei.
That panel with the side-eye, though. Feels bad for Liu, it seems like they were buddies.

Even if Ryuki kills here, it wasn't really his fault. Naiden forced him into a deathmatch and it was kill or be killed. I hope the manga doesn't try to portray him as a monster now that he killed in self defense, that'd be really dumb.

Well the chapter ends with "it's not my fault". I think Ryuki will have to think a bit about morality, after the match - he's already less of a monster compared to last time.

If I was willing to entertain the idea that Ryuki was a hypnotized Setsuna bases solely on them having the same height and general physique. I can pretend that Liu is the Doppio to the Tiger Vessel's Diavolo. You never know what outlandish theories might prove true.

Based on past experience in the thread, usually like a full day or two after the release when it's assumed anyone following has probably read it.

Pretty much this. I have an RSS for mangadex so I catch chapters pretty early and come to gush about them. No sense spoiling the people who haven't read it but after a day that statute is up.

Omega has fewer relationships between fighters on display than Asura. But they are trying to compensate by funneling it all that concentrated bromance into as few characters as possible. RIP Naidan, you were a scumbag working for the Worms but you left a good man behind Also Le Banner is evil I guess.

0.000% of Communism has been built. Evil child-murdering billionaires still rule the world with a shit-eating grin.

I'm confused at the people like "WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?!" when Gaoh was being strangled by a guy who had openly voiced his willingness to kill him, and then slammed Gaoh's blow deeper into his own neck. Yamashita at least should have definitely seen everything that went on.

i'm not sure if kazuo can override his fighters and choose to forfeit, but if he can this was pretty much entirely his fault.

To be honest the Referee should have long called this fight when things escalated. For once the Kengan side is better about this since individual referees have at least tried to make a call when things looked bad, even if they ultimately make the call too late. Metsudo even had his bodyguards on standby for Akoya's fight, not saying Purgatory should have had someone ready to hold fighters back since they wouldn't expect this kind of outcome.
