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.

Being perfectly honest, if Sawada hadn't hit Julius in his Trapezius and had landed that kick on the Temple he would have probably at least downed Julius. The head is the one place where Muscle armor doesn't apply and I wasn't happy that Sawada got downplayed in Omega since he was Rihito-tier and that's still pretty solidly in the mid tier without the benefit of a 2 year timeskip powerup.

Wakatsuki: The hell is a Tigers vessel???

You know, in this situation a genuinely strong guy would simply rotate his arm muscles like a drill, but... heh... I guess Waka could have some techniques or something up his sleeves.

Gonna be very funny when Wakatsuki steamrolls the vaunted Tiger's Vessel effortlessly with his incredible musculature

My complaint about wakatsuki is more general than jus tthis fight. I want to see him use his grip like Julius did to sawadas ankle

The problem here for Mr.Wakatsuki is that he is all about raw power and explosivity and now he's fighting a magical Niko user who can redirect power and explosivity at will

This is an opportune fight where the relative strengths of the combatants should be so great that Wakatsuki can end this fight by just throwing him out of the ring like it's Mario 64.

At this point I just feel bad for Liu.
2 of his 3 friends are Worms, and the other is just the latest vessel for Nicolas Le Banner.

Isn't the whole point of Wakatsuki that while it seems he is just all raw power snd simple fighting style, the real danger is the fact that he is one of the most experienced fighters in the manga when it comes to matches like these? So whatever you are trying to do to defeat him, hope you are real confident in it, because like a dozen of fighter tried simmilar thing against him in past and all failed.

I mean he literally fought a Tiger Vessel that mainly used Niko style before and was kinda trouncing him until he got caught in that super special ultimate mega counter.

Ohma was pretty banged up for the Wakatsuki fight though vs fei who is in peak condition. A lot more banged up than wakatsuki was too. I'd like to see Wakatsuki just gently caress the ground up to free himself with his insane strength although a blast core while Fei is gripping his hand purely to get a ring out would be a funny ending

was there a time when speedwagon didn't get trolled

My "this would be awesome" headcanon would be Wakatsuki pulls something clever/unexpected and rings Fei out, prompting a tantrum from Fei and the Other Niko which leads to a tournament interruption.

Honestly, both results of this match would have interesting ramifications.Either Wakatsuki wins, and the Other Niko will abandon Fei and laser focus on Ohma (and Agito) again, or Fei wins and establishes his credential as a serious rival and a real threat, because he just bodied one of the strongest fighters in the setting.

This would be really cool, although I wonder how many magical howevers Sandrovich will have up his sleeve.

I'm anticipating Wakatsuki doing something like, Tsk... So I have to unreveal my anti-Niko techniques here instead of against Ohma... or something to that effect. I mean, a guy like that has definitely been training to overcome the people who beat him previously, so even if he didn't anticipate going up against a Niko style user, he probably has an answer to it. It would be nice if Fei doesn't job though, Purgatory has been pretty disappointing so far. I'm just glad the tournament isn't going to be the entire manga this time around.

Pretty much all the fights involving the returning fighters from the tournament have been showing how they've learned from their defeats since KA, so fully expecting Wakatsuki to pull off some "anti-bullshit techniques" here

I think you can get out of the wrist hold using a forward flip, you have to go with the hold not against it, especially when you have a core of a god.

quite looking forward to seeing kureishi and koga's uncle fight with whatever comes next and maybe a brief interlude training arc that is just an excuse to get koga ready and have ohma and agito fight

Confirmed by the drafts, Waka wasn't using blast core. Apparently that mountain shaking punch was the same thing he did to Gozo in the KAT

If Muteba drops his knife then he's got a chance. The record for knife users vs unarmed is very poor.

There was Setsuna's Fallen Demon form too, which I think counts even if it went with a different aesthetic
