if mokichi was gonna win he would have needed a much more impressive background. he is the master of an obscure martial art, but that's just not enough narrative weight to tip the scale. but who knows, maybe he has something else up his sleeve.

Mokichi definitely still has an ace up his sleeve. Before the fight the chairman kept talking about his bloodline, but he's not a descendant of the guy who invented baritsu, just one of the last practitioners.

I bet he's going to literally be the descendant of King Arthur or something.

He is actually the direct descendant of Sherlock Holmes whose legendary adventures were falsely believed to be fictional because they were so incredible.

I think Mokichi will at least do some sort of comeback in the next chapter, though that doesn't necessarily mean he'll win (it might be the sort of thing where he just manages to force Raian to take him seriously while using his bloodlust).

Oh, almost certainly. Seeing someone outmatched trying to stage a comeback tends to be when these fights are at their most interesting, though. And who knows, sometimes it even works! Probably not this particular time, however.

Interesting that the bloodline they were talking about was apparently not the martial artist bloodline, given by the implications at the end of the chapter.

I'm excited.

You have been a most worthy adversary, but in every game, there are winners and there are losers. And as you know, in this game, losers get robotizicized!

no westerner can hope to overwhelm the power of the yamato bloodline...

As I mentioned in an earlier post, that is because all the strongest westerners are fighting for Exxon, Goldman Sachs, etc in the international Kengan matches.

So the winner of this Kengan (Japan Division) Tournament will go on to fight in the World Kengan Cup and that will be the next major arc?

there is no world kengan cup, or even international kengan matches. corporate arbitration deathmatches are unique to japan, though foreigners are more than happy to spectate.

there are other fighting leagues, but not corporate arbitration fighting leagues. bringing business into it paradoxically makes kengan matches less corrupt than usual competitive fighting, as there are very large incentives to not throw matches.

Internationals with a presence in Japan appear to have Kengan competitors, ref McDonalds and Disney. There likely isn't a discrete US version.

Mochi didn't want to use it this early, but he's going to have to bring out his trump card: the ultimate technique of the soul reaper, it is called "bankai".

Well, as the winner of the third match, Raian's second-round opponent will be the winner of the fourth match, which just so happens to feature our protagonist.

nah, those were generic tournament enforcers. fang there is the chairman's fighter, meaning he is effectively the reigning champion.

Nah, those were the bodyguards, who were later effortlessly killed by that guy who's obsessed with the main character (it's been so long since he was in focus I've honestly forgotten his name). We haven't seen the Fang actually do anything yet, but he's the reigning champion so it's safe to assume he's pretty tough.
