Probably something about his super mode, Ohma himself said he was taking out an advance when he used it against Jun, so it's probably killing him.

Yeah I just took that as the standard "super mode burning out your life force!" shonen thing.

Since the Niko style is all about body control and you get that thoom thoom thoom sound effect whenever Ohma uses it, I imagine its something dumb but shounen-y like overclocking your heart to increase circulation that puts deadly stress on his body or smth

I appreciate that Adam Dudley and Guile seem to have heard of one another. Also that every Kengan character's reaction to seeing a Hadoken is 'What the gently caress was that?'

Man this was a really good chapter, I really liked imagination NIko pointing out that the advance isn't very useful against people like Sekibayashi, who didn't take much damage from it.

Also wow, a new plot thread about who this advance teaching dude is. I'm hyped.

Maybe it's a kure guy and his super mode is actually the same as theirs.

I think I will continue
watching this twilight world
as long as time flows.

Also i like how calling it an "Advance" pretty much clinches that it is, as predicted by people itt, an advance on one's life force.

He'll overcome it when he learns to properly go super saiyan. Kazuo taught him the advance technique.

Kure's Removal seems to be different, like, Kazuo thinks that there's something that sets it apart.

It's a shame we never got to see Kure Raian watch Ouma's match, or Ouma watch Raian's match, cause we could have seen them react to their respective transformations.

But the Removal doesn't seem to really have any drawbacks as far as we know.

I guess it could be a bastardized version of the Kure's Removal?

Adam Dudley was actually playing the long game, getting eliminated early to put him in a better place to properly assist his double agent fighter from the shadows.

I think from this chapter we see that ohma is going to get to at least the semi finals.
Clearly he masters the water kata vs submission boy

More likely trauma-related memory loss. Once you cast doubt on Ohma's recollection of events, it changes the context of everything we've seen him recall. Kiryu, of all people, is now a more reliable source. What does he recall? Well, we know at some undefined point in the past, Ohma (probably using 'Advance') beat the everloving poo poo out of him. We also know that Kiryu killed his own master. What we haven't seen from him is a memory of his master killing Ohma's master (i.e., how Ohma's unreliable memory recalls events).

There's a pretty strong implication at this point that Ohma killed Niko himself, albeit with enough wiggle room in the plotting that it may yet be another fake-out. For one thing, even within Ohma's limited understanding of his teacher's capabilities, 'The tecnique formerly known as Advance' was insufficient to defeat him.

A lot.

I recall the Vietnamese scans (which show up readily when looking for the raws) go up to around Chapter 220.

I'm guessing next week is learning more about fishing dude, and then the chapter after that is the actual match starting.

If they ever make an anime of it, Asta's VA from Black Clover is going to be a top pick to voice Saw Paing.

I'm bummed we didn't get into giant fishing grandpa's fight yet, and more bummed it's supposedly a fixed match. Series has surprised me before though, so I'm inclined to let it ride.

It won a vote the magazine ran a couple years back, but those aren't legally binding so :v:

(there was another fairly popular series running in the same magazine that did get one though, so I wouldn't rule it out even though the odds of a theoretical anime making it to this point in the series are... remote)
