Gensai observes the "perfect" formless and sighs at another idiot, fool, incompetent who did not even learn their fundamentals.

i don't think it'd be possible to fight formless unless you had an innate talent for the fundamentals actually.

Presumably since the rest are said to have perished when Gaoh called them all into the forest. Tiger Niko credits Ohma's Niko for having done the deed.

It's still left ambiguous, but Tiger eyes was said to have received a fatal blow but given how Ohma's own death turned out I don't think that matters much.

other way around. The Devil is how Setsuna refers to Ohma's Niko. Tiger Eyes died but dealt Niko a fatal blow. Everything else still stands, obviously, Setsuna can be wrong.

EVIL IS ON THE MOVE (while 1 guy is an outsider ally and the other was a middle management weakling). At this point, Worm is just a gag about evil organization hijinks and failings.

Legitimately expecting the Worm guys that weve seen to have been Trained Wrong As A Joke so the real ones can get things done. Xia Ji just seems to be constantly getting clowned on all of the time.

I like that he's not some big badass, he's just a weaselly coward. There's some really cool choreography this chapter, Sekibayashi would have been proud of that elbow drop. Also I love how Lu Tian's crazy dodges have that liquid effect instead of traditional action lines, really neat touch.

That seems to be what we're actually being shown here. Xia is a low level manager weenie who thinks he's hot poo poo.

I like the worm actually. The worm is an ancient rear end organization that has been around for a long long time. It is broken into basically squabbling factions that all think they are the hottest of poo poo.


And Xia getting infinitely dunked on is pretty good.


Also Agito is good.

This is probably my favorite fight in Omega thus far. Agito slaps, and he's against someone who's making him bring on all of his strength.

I don't know why they made the decision to exclusively represent formless as anything more than Agito's crazy face. The shoulder rolling made sense in the fight vs Gaolang because he was specifically using those motions to curb Gaolang's blows and throw him down. It also showed that his formless style was more loose and flexible in addition to him favoring seemingly wild swings when he wasn't copying someone else's fighting style. Makes it hard to see why one guy is doing better than the other since they both look to be doing the same motions 90% of the time and Agito just started eating more hits.

The fact that two fighters regularly are turning into liquid rubber however gets a chuckle out of me.

so i went back to read the omega chapter where raian and ohma release/advance and what lu tian is doing is definitely the release

edit: the ashura art makes it less clear but ohma's eyes only went black after he'd been in the advance a while and his veins didn't bulge so much
