Ohma realising he wants to win to prove he's the strongest is the biggest reason setsuna won't be in the final

Yeah Setsuna's "rivalry" with him is a poisoned suicide pact and nothing more, so Ohma's come-to-jesus moment in the Raian fight should push him to not really give a poo poo about that anymore.

wonder who's going to have taught Ohma the advance. Its not Niko and seems unlikely to be the guy who killed Niko. Assuming this series is purely the tournament I guess that could be the hook for a sequel since it seems unlikely its a fighter in the tournament

it was metsudo since he's the director of a bank and banks are where you get advances from, in conjunction with rino, because hookers also make advances on people

This manga is definitely one of the best portrayals of pro wrestling as an actual fictional fighting style. I love how Jun outwardly acts reckless and proud while actually being one of the most deceptive and dirty fighters on the roster.

Marvelous Seki is going to take this tournament if they don't somehow manage to get Sekibayashi back in.

im worried that theyre setting her up to be jotaros future wife or something.

I mean itís a shame if Marvelous Seki loses but canít they just replace him with Sekibayashi if he loses? Heís not quite as strong but he is still a formidable fighter.

If Hell's Deva Marvelous Seki loses this fight, his current employer Gandai will be knocked out of the tournament, so Gandai can't replace him with Hell's Angel Sekibayashi Jun.

However, another company (e.g. someone like Yamashita Trading Co, whose fighter is severely wounded) could hire Sekibayashi. In fact, since Gandai and Togo (Sharktooth Lady) have agreed to an alliance, if Muteba somehow beats Marvelous Seki but is badly wounded in the process, it is entirely possible that Togo might hire Gandai's ex-fighter Sekibayashi.

Marvelous Seki is hosed... hosed! Next chapter Muteba is going to reveal that he could actually see all this time and was just pretending to be blind/eyeless

This was hinted at the beginning! So I wouldn't be surprised if he rolls his eyeballs forward displaying new beautiful eyes.

It's gonna turn out that Marvelous Seki really is a different person from Sekibayashi Jun as they are twin brothers.

Muteba put on a really loving convincing act, his completely dazed flailing and the empty dialogue boxes did an amazing job of pulling the wool over my eyes.

I thought Jun's throat had been cut at first.

Is the substitution rule that you can swap a fighter once or for only one fight?

Same, I didn't realize it was an ear stab from the raws either. Muteba is just paying back the favor

I don't get it, what happened? Can it be inferred or is it something that'll only be revealed next chapter? I see the ear gouging, then some funky hand movements and almost an eye gouge? And suddenly it's a fatality or something?

You can infer it from this chapter if you look at Muteba's hands in the page he goes for the eye-gouge. Also note the sfx for "Tap" and where it is
But it will get explained next chapter don't worry.

I feel like the match isnít over yet. All I can really tell is that Muteba switched from his left hand to his right during that last attack and performed what looks like a slashing move

I thought Seki performed the other eye gouge dodge, thatís more dangerous, but heís bleeding from his neck

I thought he got punched in the heart and then coughed up a ton of blood from internal injuries.

Oh eye gouge feint into undefended heart punch? That's certainly plausible

I like how Seki is probably supposed to be a heel but it's not working out that way because he's too likable. He also almost lost to Kiozan with the first sumo kick, so it seems like his defense doesn't work against things he doesn't see coming. Which would definitely make sense.

I like Muteba, he seems like one of the smarter and more adaptable fighters until now, which is quite surprising due to his ruthless mercenary fucks-a-lot background.
