This match really highlights what the Kengan matches are all about. Companies using people to gain power and status, with absolutely no care about their fighters.

I love the matchup between demented berserker cop vs innocent highschooler. Cosmo really is the most pure of heart fighter, even his techniques are about subduing people, not torturing them. That cop though :stare:, I really hope this match destroys the company and ends his lovely fighting career. But... if Cosmo somehow wins, this is going to be his last fight, which leaves the CEO with an empty spot. Guess who's an awesome fighter, relatively injury free who's CEO is a piece of poo poo spineless coward?

gently caress.

Y'know, I was about to say that I can't believe that they made Akoya's backstory more upsetting than any of the assassins running around in this tournament but then I remembered that he's a cop.

Despite being a homophobic piece of poo poo, Adam's right, gently caress this guy.

Girl just needs therapy to get over the realization that her cousin murdered her uncle and dad and tried to kill her and maybe make friends who aren't an immoral arms dealer and crazy murder cop.

But mostly the murder cop.

At least the immoral arms dealer cares about her well-being.

What suddenly allowed them to tear through translating like this? Someone posted the explanation but I couldn't find it myself.

Basically the previous pace had been to go easy on their typesetter's poor health; that person is now taking a break, and a new typesetter has been brought on board, so they're upping the release rate since they no longer have a reason not to.

so these chapters were probably translated months ago, and they're just plowing through the backlog. (200 is still, uh, some backlog even considering)

While she is definitely mentally disturbed, she's also a direct accessory to Akoya's murder spree. Like she's gone beyond being a passive victim to actively helping this guy honeypot people to murder them. It's a little beyond "she just needs some friends and therapy" at this point.

It's weird because months ago when I got to that flashback while reading the raws, my impression was that the CEO was using herself as bait for some strangler, and some doctor as her part in these killings. It's not necessarily untrue for the psychologist, but the back story about her family is so much more messed up than I had even imagined.

Luckily for Cosmos he's only gonna fight one of them, not both at the same time.

Yeah dude's a punkass poo poo, he's been using dirty tricks this whole time and starts whining like a baby when Cosmo gives him a piece of his own medicine.

Dude's literally the worst, even more so than the crazy dude who killed his dad and friends, a handful of assassins, a mercenary for hire, whatever Hayami is, and an immoral arms dealer.

Cosmo went "Master... Bro... Adam... I swear I'll win..."

That means that Adam Dudley is already as dear to Cosmo as his teacher and Nishihonji. :allears:
