Yyyyup, there's that Baki influence showing itself.

At least the human skull is sort of built to withstand impacts. A dude once shattered his fingers against Bakiís mighty eyeballs.

I appreciate Saw Paing taking a pause from shouting and charging in to shout out an explanation about what was happening.

Intentional brain damage, at that! I love this manga, it truly is the successor to Baki.

Happened in Saint Seiya too. It's... surprisingly common. Once you accept that punches are magic, you hold all things in Heaven and Earth within the palm of your hand.

Deliberately throwing off your equilibrium so it feels like you've got a ship's deck under your feet comes off almost reasonable by comparison. It's such a perfect bullshit power-up for a fisherman, too. :allears:

Kind of glad it went that way since Mob season 1 was so good. Also kengan is such a fun series but Mob is pretty well in the running for best series I've read.

The latest English-translated chapter is Chapter 86.

The latest Japanese chapter is Chapter 210.

So we're 124 chapters behind.

Iím guessing the stopping point for the anime will be the end of the first round so the manga might be there by the time it comes out.

EDIT: well if itís 26 episodes. If itís 13 then the start of the tournament I guess?

How they gonna make the Muteba/Meguro fight in any way palatable for airing is gonna be interesting

edit: also they need to rewrite the script so Lenne Hardt can do the voiceovers for the entrances https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsN3OtLE8kk
