i assume in the next fight ohma will try the advance and get clowned on by Raian when he uses the release or whatever their version is called leading to him fully remembering all the Niko stuff and winning using that

i've not read any of the raws

Really doubt Cosmo will be fighting in the next round, considering his injuries. The better question to ask is which fighter will sub for him.... Who would be most kick-rear end opponent for Ohma at that point?

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:

There's a one-day break in between the second round and the next round. Enough time for Cosmo to give Adam a crash-course in grappling and groundwork, on top of the natural strength and striking skills that Adam already has.

Now, hopefully Cosmo realizes that Akoya is actually more than just a threat as a fighter and snaps his neck before he gets up.

They didn't specifically confirm that so I prefer to imagine that he snuck in and started strangling her with the rope and that's just what she sleeps in.

Yeah Iím on this boat. I feel like Akito is going to crush Gaolang then get iced by Setsuna in an upset. We have to assume Setsuna is at least as strong as Niko before he died. Who, so far, seems to have been portrayed as barely trying in the flashbacks

I have also not read any raws

I have read the raws and confirmed that the final match is adam dudley vs the disney guy, double knockout finish for co ownership of the kengan association which quickly falls to the new corrupting western influences in a brief epilogue.

I assumed something will happen to Sen and itíll be presumed heís flaking again. This would cost the Nogi group a lot of cred and could dove tail into the meta plot line going on with the island invasion

I feel like Ohma will barely lose to Raian and then take Cosmo's place for an immediate rematch.

Besides that, murder doctor maybe stab this dude in the face while he's out.

Reminder that if the fighter under Kazzy loses a match, Kazzy will lose everything, possibly including his life, due to the "deal" that was forced on him by Nogi.

this manga is about a single-elimination tournament and still does a better job of keeping side characters relevant than most other action manga

He's a hot blooded MC who uses a versitile martial arts style that has an answer for most things in the form of a specific kata. Also has dark hado transformation. And a backstory of a barely remembered mentor, and growing up in a ghetto.

Compared to the Parton saint of pro wrestling, a Disney mascot who is also a greaser, a kick boxer with a titanium skeleton, an assassin from a clan of eugenics freaks, and so many others he has a more lackluster and familiar characterization so far.

I still like him but yeah I'm rooting for so many other people he kind of just exists. Kazzy is the real MC as far as I'm concerned.

Magissima posted:

Eh, I think he's pretty interesting.

He's got a cool fighting style that's all about redirecting his opponents attacks. A mysterious backstory which he's only now remembering bits and pieces of.

He's just not, like, particularly more interesting than any other fighter, which is unusual for this kind of series. I think the real protagonist is still Kazzy, which is why we get so much time with every fight. He's the viewpoint character, still being amazed and overwhelmed by this crazy world he's been dropped into.

Main characters being kinda middle of the road compared to their wild and crazy foes (who often go on to become supporting cast) is kind of de rigueur in fiction that revolves around climactic clashes between colorful weirdos. Just look at Batman.

Soiled Meat

Having a personality that can only be described as "main character" is part of the problem, but really he doesn't even get that much screen time or interaction with the colorful weirdos. I'm certain he'll be more interesting once his fight starts but going off to do boring shounen training when everybody cool is hanging out at the beach? C'mon man

ohma's a loner while most of the other fighters are good-natured and social. heck, even fang is more friendly than ohma and he barely understands the concept of being friendly.

was there a time when speedwagon didn't get trolled

Ohma has kind of been doing a slow burn character arc where it's all but stated that the Ohma we've seen fight up to this point isn't the "real" Ohma, which is good, because the Ohma we've seen fight so far has basically just been doing a knockoff of the Kure Clan thing.

Given how basically every real fight has been loving insane so far, I've got high hopes for Ohma, Except He Actually Remembers How To Do The Niko Style.
