Well his only win will be wearing a clown costume against a guy whose 90% gimmicks and 10% good looks. Okubo better win this one.

I liked that fight.

It was nice to see Okubo get a clean win, where his skills actually mattered and helped him overwhelm some fancy superpower bullshit. I like the continuing theme of the Annihilation fighters not being as serious as the Kengan people. Also kind of funny to think that this same thing, someone entering just to assassinate another contestant, happened in the first series, and the assassins also lost their match.

Terashi is the most pure jobber character in the whole series. The only reason he's here is to do a job, and that job isn't even "winning this match" or "killing his opponent", it's to kill some other guy! He only realized he actually wanted to win at the last second!

Well aside from Fei being The tiger vessel I think his stated martial arts is Tai Chi so I suspect this is going to be a hard one for Wakatsuki regardless and honestly, I'm more than a little disappointed that Kazzy decided that Wakatsuki who I consider to be the real king of the Kengan Circuit couldn't man handle the king of purgatory.

Wakatsuki winning by just standing so he can't be redirected would be funny imo

Hope Fei doesnít reveal heís the tigerís vessel by crippling Takeshi or something. Also I think Yamashita is underestimating a fully healthy Ohma, he's probably still thinking of him like during the Annihilation tournament.

No, itís 5-5 right now. If Kengan gets one win and one loss itíll be a tie.

Yeah, attacking his head is your best bet if you're fighting Wakatsuki. If he can take a punch from Julius Reinhold and you're not the size of a restaurant freezer, you'd better have a plan ready.

This got a laugh out of me. "I hope you will change your impression of Tai Chi", leading immediately into one exchange where the guy nearly gets squashed and immediately changes styles.

It's Carlos all over again. Making a big deal about how awesome he is at one particular martial art that's his personal specialty, and then within a couple of exchanges he's forced into revealing his super special trump card: using some other martial art that he has far less experience with.

I don't really see this as like Carlos. Fei is already up to 3 fighting styles and describes this as the minimum for competence which...is weirdly sane after we had a fight where someone had a shivering fighting style.

As I (vaguely) understand it, MMA's relatively recent surge in popularity has led to some really rapid advancement in the Art Of Beating Up Dudes With Your Bare Hands, with a real emphasis on the importance of having a complete toolkit, as opposed to just doing, say, Judo where the style is for a pretty specific range of interactions. Which is really cool and has a lot of depth, but isn't exactly preparing you for fighting a guy who's using strikes to space you out. And what Fei is listing is a bunch of stuff that's just going to give you really solid fundamentals without any notable holes. So it's less an ace in the hole and more "I am not a dipshit gimmick, I know how to Fight"

I am still reeling from the incredible and brutal betrayal of Julius Reinhardt. Wtf is he doing with a shirt on. :argh:

Also that shadowy figure from the last page seems more like that former Fang of Metsudo traitor whose name I honestly forgot, because he was a loser, than Rihito to me.

he always wore a sweatsuit, guy in shadow is wearing a tank top. also, while he had spiky hair he didn't have a spiky mullet.

Pretty sure heís got him in a joint lock. Itís one of those weird holds where you either canít bring your strength to bear, or if you do, itís just going to damage you further.
Thereís not many things he can do from that position that wonít fracture his wrist or a damage a tendon/ligament or dislocate something.
Attacks that can target his joints and tendons/ligaments is pretty smart. His super muscles probably put them under a lot of pressure when he does explosive strikes.

I'm talking about just crushing his hand with his ridiculous grip strength

Wakatsuki had half his goddamn face torn off from being ran all the way around the original arena by goddamn Julius Reinhold.

I think he can handle this. I hope it isn't a BLAST CORE he uses as his super duper cuz that is gonna get so redirected.

Remember what happened when Julius caught someone's kick. Sawada hasn't been given much love. I feel like the only mention of him in Omega ended with Kazzy admitting he was scraping the bottom of the barrel.
