So can Muteba see now or what? They had a panel of him asking that secretary to bring his new eyes before the fight and it seems like he no longer needs his ears to be able to perceive the fight, plus it looked like Seki got him once by spitting blood in his face.

I think he uses air pressure (touch) smell, and even taste as well as hearing to pinpoint.


I think the eyes are for NEXT ROUND when he's gonna break out cyborg mode for fighting TIGER BOI.

Kid, don't threaten me. There are worse things than death, and uh, I can do all of them.


Hypocrisy posted:

Nice finish.

Tactics wins the day again.


And strategy! Muteba being brutal with his fighting all along to distract from some of his more dangerous one-hit-kill attacks is impressive. And his line about finally being able to fight as a warrior means he probably has some more power to pull out for the watasuki, especially because I think we donít know how he lost his sight or what he was doing before he became an assassin.

They were dropping hints that Muteba was thinking of a way to beat Wakatsuki, before this match started. That fight is going to be interesting as both fighters are extremely skilled and have some information about the others fighting style

As for the next match Saw Paing vs Rei. I like Saw Paing as a character and want him to win but I feel like it's Rei vs Setsuna in quarter finals. Which would lead us to a speedster match up

Next fight is SAW PAINNNNNNNNG vs. Rei right? Hopefully it lasts longer than Rei's first fight.

Rei won the first round with a lightning-fast jab to Mockey's chin, knocking Mockey out instantly. That technique won't work on Saw Paing since his skull is made of titanium, so Rei's fight with Saw Paing going to last more than one panel even if Saw Paing finally loses at the end.

So the manga ended a little while ago and now it's been announced it'll come back in 2019 with a new arc. The translations should be caught up by then.

I hope the new arc features Kazzy being the new Kengan Association Chairman and sponsoring the new tournament.

Also, Kazzy ends up entering himself into and winning the tournament due to shenanigans.

Rei is literally the most boring fighter in the tournament, so I am rooting for his opponent by default.

fortunately, no matter who wins saw will still be available to do fight commentary afterward. rei's not one of the maim, mutilate and murder dudes despite being a former assassin.

Rei is what happens when you somehow have less presence and group interactions than Ohma. While having nothing really compelling as motivation either. He's got a hard on for a literal pimp. That's why he's fighting in this tourney.

After Gensai and Setsuna duke it out we'll get to enjoy Hatsumi Sen sleeping for an unprecedented 21 hours straight since Hanafusa killed Bando.

Unless they do a substitution I guess.
