I'm very curious where the story goes from here. If they focus back on Koga there's gotta be a timeskip for him to catch up with the other fighters.

It continues to be a strange feeling that Tokita Ohma is easily the least interesting combatant in Omega for me.

Yeah, I still maintain that his revival in Omega was a big mistake and, in hindsight, it marks the beginning of it's (hopefully temporary) decline in quality.

Okay, now to see how hard Raian got bodied and maybe somebody getting devil speared, right? Kind of a whole thing going on out there? Koga's uncle biting people? Maybe Tereshi trying to kill Banner?

Okubo's fight was the low point for me personally.

One of the better fights of the tourney. Ohma is still cool.

Kinda lackluster for a final match though.

E:Kinda hosed up that in like 13 matches I think this was the first one that had Koga actually comment on stuff and like keep up. Feels like that shoulda been a bigger part of this arc.

heck in a ceck


I liked it, for showing that Ohma is like actually fighting in a sustainable way now and not a supermode maniac like Fei

The structure of the tournament was cool in theory but i do agree that in practice there are characters that needed that Kuroki buildup. Rolon needed to dismantle some more people

I think it's important to turn your brain onto Action Movie Mode for Kengan. It's very stupid on a fundamental level, which is a good thing in my book

imo the worst fight was rihito, because after all that buildup about how much he had improved he basically fought and lost the exact same way as before.

You say that but I feel like Rihito was having more success going back to the old him in that fight.

In retrospect that hype bit at the end of murder cop vs Nicholas where Rolon storms the ring and Carlos is freaking out about stopping him from going any further like he's afraid Rolon is going to just go full on blood in the water or something was kinda weird? Like he's a really dedicated fight mans and worm hunter :lol: but he doesn't seem to be a berserker or anything.

He never even made a silly face.

Well why do you think Rolon lost? He used up all his flashbacks at the very beginning of the fight and never made a silly rear end face.

I forgot how obsessed he was with biting as a finishing move. Itagaki has clearly been taking notes for baki

DO NOT TRUST

Biggest disappointment for me is that they made that big deal about how little techniques like pushing your opponent's knee out end up making the difference in extremely high-level matches back in Ashura and then never revisited that principle

Like if Ohma had thrown Rolon's knockout blow off with that exact move, that would have been hype as poo poo, but busting out a Kure technique doesn't have the same impact

it was just a low kick with excellent timing. it didn't really need to be some special move, kure or otherwise.

I think you just accidentally described what the Kure secret technique was.

Yeah, but the whole situation with Rama feels like they just made it up (and probably did) because I don't remember anything about Nogi trying to secure a deal with him prior to this.
