Not a great conclusion.

There's no point to have a big reveal about how this guy can do the super awesome secret Removal technique and then have him get tossed in the dumpster in ten seconds by Agito going "no, you can't beat me anyway" and punching his head off without the Removal actually accomplishing a single thing.

Removal's been a let down, huh? Wrecked by Gensai and Agito easily. that said, I enjoyed the chapter.

Same sentiment. Compounded by the deflation of the Wu clan not being ultimately opposed to the Kure's since it's only Edward and a splinter faction siding with Niko

Chapter was good. I think the real point of this is that Lu-tian was actually dumped as well. He was used by the other Niko to develop "advance" from Removal and then tossed aside, likely without even realizing it. Other Niko then focused on Ohma and the perfected Niko Style created by "Good" Niko seeking to combine the two paths.

True, but I think my question here would be is Lu actually the prodigy Neko Niko was referring to.

see this makes sense though why would they suddenly give a poo poo and it even seems unlikely that the kure never knew about them. Considering that Toyoda is the richest man on the planet who runs purgatory entirely himself it makes sense that the head of the Wu is there since one of his people is

I don't think so because we know that whoever was the villain at the end of Ashura took pride in being the only niko style practitioner and agree wtih the people who think Lu Tian was also just being used

Yeah, the interaction with Okubo and Agito was pretty great. Okubo came away from their first conversation thinking he was weird for not getting Ultraman references and just generally not knowing how to interact with people. So this is pretty much just showing us in another way how far Agito has come in the past few years. Lu Tian was actually pretty strong but yeah, a bit disappointing still.

If Okubo absolutely destroys somebody in that clown outfit I will be very happy. I do kinda wonder where on the tier list Okubo falls in general though. He's got STRONG FUNDAMENTALS, which is a mark in his favor, but he lacks a beard, a weird face, or some other gimmick. Maybe that's the clown outfit's purpose?

I got a different impression regarding the Kure/Wu feud. Because it was made clear that the major factor to the merger between Purgatory and the Kengan Association was to create a bulwark. One to keep the foreign powers Metsuda had previously been holding back out of Japan for the foreseeable future. So the Wu clan waiting until now to eradicate the Kure's didn't strike me as odd, nor that either side was unaware of the other, it just wasn't economical prior to this timeframe for the Wu's to make any big plays. As per this chapter It's just not as imposing a plotline anymore because the Kure clan is all but confirmed to be safe from any major problems now. Even Alan might not be on Edward's side.

we already knew that whatever alliance between the worm and wu was wasn't exactly huge and the worm have always been the principle enemy. An interesting thing is did the guys who invaded the kengan annihilation tournament and knew the advance have newer training than Lu Tian or what

They didn't box at the same time (https://mangadex.org/chapter/882698/4), so the P4P rankings mentioned the chapter before are presumably GOAT rankings.
