From where I stand, on a pure conceptual level Omega has always been less built around 1v1 sporting-style matches VS just fuckin fighting action movie style like maniacs, so if anything now that the brief interlude of the tournament is over, businesses about to pick up again.

It's because the new Purgatory characters are mostly whatever and their fights weren't great, op.

"I got beaten into meat paste by my clearly superior opponent but I still won on a rules technicality" is not a great way to sell interesting fighters.

How is this where you draw the line?

One of the earlier fights in the Ashura tournament involved a man with retractable bone swords that could build up gas in his heel to make his feet explode.

I better question is WHY do i draw the line here. To be honest, I don't know why. I just dislike it very much. The rest of the bullshit I can suspend my belief and enjoy but shattering a weapon is where I think it's dumb.

The second panel Is a lot funnier if, instead of interpting it as a visual metaphor, you just imagine this giant deity figure bursting through the wall just as kuroki gensai says "I have no blind spots."

I always interpreted it as him carving a giant deity with his Devil Lance in the floor/wall just to flex. :v:

That's how I honestly interpreted it, since as the previous page posted there shows, he wasn't exactly shy about doing things to flex his unbreakable fingers for no reason during his early introductions.

That and there's a bunch of rock rubble around him(as though leftovers from EXTREME FINGER CARVING) and he starts off the page by saying "...There." as though he just finished something.

Just because you have good fundamentals, doesn't mean you can't have FUN as well.

There's an omake image of Rihito training with Gensai and the activity is wood carving using their signature hand techniques. It's 100% the case that Gensai carved that statue just to flex.

Edward I think is Literally wiping out all the other instances of Wu Hei as part of some scheme. I think he literally only wants to pass along "his" version of Wu Hei
