My guess was wrong last time and I hope it's wrong again, because if it's right get ready for another round's worth of a guy way less interesting than Saw Paing. :(

I like how your effectiveness as a fighter is directly proportional to how crazy of a face you can make during a fight

Time to change tactics and show off that assassin prowess by hitting the guy with an adamantium skull in the head, repeatedly. :what:

Anyone who said Ohma or Raian are the least interesting fighters must have forgotten that this guy exists.

Rei is just kind of a generic edgelord that has a crush on his CEO and that's about it. He's basically had the same personality since he broke Togo's original fighters legs. I mean Raian is just a madman himself but he doesn't have this stoic and dismissive outlook on the world like Rei does. It's hard to care about him when he's the embodiment of "nothing personal kid"

Since the chapter ends on the headbutt as a cliffhanger instead of showing Saw winning the fight with the headbutt, then the fight definitely will not end with the headbutt. :smith:

There's still the possibility that Rei gains the advantage next chapter and then Saw wins in Chapter 152. :unsmith:

I mean, the last fight had muteba making seki explode into blood and the next chapter he just finished him

So the chapter structure isnít absolute, though I donít think Rei is done yet

Hopefully one of these people are going to be fighting Kiryu in the next round, because hoo boy do I not want Gensai trying to piece Saw Paing's skull.

this fight is fine and the action itself is good. biggest problem with it is that saw's skeleton itself is ridiculous so rei's hits aren't doing any wicked cool poo poo. which, well, it's just a bad matchup for him. think it's being done as well as it could be with that in mind.

hope saw wins and rei gets to go nap with his gf for a while

But what if it's Rei who wins this match (:() and then Gensai wins the next match and it's Gensai trying to pierce Rei's skull in Round 3 (:))?

This is one of the things that I really like about Kengan Ashura: if a chapter ended on a cliffhanger, it didn't mysteriously end there and but the audience only finds out the result at the start of the next chapter; some thing(s) has to happen before it concludes. And if it does end at a chapter, the ending is definitive and clear.

What I'm saying is, next chapter is Saw Paing just hanging onto Rei while upgrading the Hammer of Burma into the HAMMERS OF BURMA

Shhh... don't wake up the sleeping lion :3:



It's funny that I actually like Rei outside of this fight, he's a take on the usually tired, pretty :jerkbag: "badass young hot assassin who gave up killing for love" character that becomes humorous because he's framed as this huge baby who only wants to bury his head in big boobs. It's an entertaining schtick because the story doesn't really take him seriously. So I guess that's why when his character is entirely played straight during this fight I immediately turned on him and rolled my eyes all the way through.

I really want to stop and appreciate how loving awesome "Hammer of Burma" is as a finishing move name. If you're only going to name one move, name it after your homeland and destroy your opponent with it.

I really hope the flash of light we see is for real and not an artistic style. It's very reminiscent of Hammer Of Dawn from the Gears of War games.
