I'm excited to see Kuroki Gensai in action finally. If you don't remember, Rihito was the last to choose his bracket spot, and he got stuck with him, making Gensai the man nobody wanted to fight, even less so than the fang. He hasn't gotten a lot of screentime yet, but I think he's one of the major contenders. Rihito had a good run, but he's gonna get murdered here 99% of the time.

I feel like we have a pretty solid stretch of fights with pretty obvious outcomes. Gensai, Setsuna, and Sen are probably all moving on.

It's speculation based purely on bracket picks, but it seems pretty likely, and the bracket picks play into the little developing plotline of teito university targeting Bando Yohei for disgracing them, so there's precedent for paying attention to them.

Re: Gensai

Reminder that Rihito is up against Gensai cause nobody wanted to fight him.

We can't assume nobody wanted to fight gensai even more than the fang, because number 6 took fighting the fang as a revenge thing, he is more likely the second most terrifying fighter with fang being 1.

Gaolang and Canada, the other ones that picked last, both took the other slot nobody wanted with the fang in round 2 over facing Gensai fresh in the first round. Either way though, Gensai's definitely got a big reputation.

Rihito needs to beat Gensai and then also beat Setsuna, causing Setsuna to fall in murder-love with him instead of Ohma.

edit: Does anyone have any predictions for Kaneda vs. Gaolong?

Rihito is probably going to give mockey dude competition for being the biggest jobber. Also think Gao wins because he looks like he'd be a better matchup vs Fang.

no one's expecting anything from rihito, which says to me that he is gonna have a drat fine showing even if he still probably won't win.

Gao's been getting some hype so he'll probably make it. Or they'll murder him like that old 'God of War' on the boat. Who knows.

I feel like Rihito could be really, really strong if given actual proper training in a martial art. Like maybe some sort of grappling or something, using his Super Fingers. He's spent pretty much his entire career just relying on his finger slicing stuff, so if he expanded his repertoire he could do a lot more.

Crazy as it sounds, don't count Hatsumi out of the running so quickly. He's the only person besides the Fang to beat Wakatsuki.

I'm pretty sure Kaneda will win since his CEO is story relevant.

Kaneda's style literally required him to have the poo poo beaten out of him so he could get used to his opponent's style.

I don't think he's gonna last long.

This is actually why I'm interested in Jun vs Muteba. Pro-wrestling pride forcing you to soak up all your opponent's attacks might not be the best plan against a guy who is actually trying to destroy your body's ability to function rather than fight you. It worked against Sumo Lad because Sumo Lad was trying to prove a point about his personal style of martial art rather than trying to simply murder Jun from the get go.

Jun proves that Muteba isn't the only one who can fight dirty when he slams a steel chair that was lying around the arena against the back of Muteba's head, killing him instantly. Jun kills himself immediately after the match for disgracing pro wrestling by using the forbidden technique.

I think Canada beats Gaolang, but Gaolang doesn't seem like your typical round one gimmick jobber either. I'm pretty sure he loses, but definitely not 100% certain. I don't think a lot of people expected Saw Paing to win either, but here we are. It's one of the fights I'm really looking forward to.

Dirty fighting is a staple of pro-wrestling. I think Jun is going to lose anyway but I think he wrecks on Muteba for a good bit. Our Boy Jun got hurt a lot worse in his first bout than muteba who lose eyes... that he already had lost the use of due to a gunshot wound.

i think jun has a bigger chance of going past, because muteba is more of a one-trick pony at this point.

Pretty cool chapter, it's up on HnG's site but not kissmanga yet.

Looks like we finally got an idea of what Medicine Man's been up to. He's the one who got the fishery guy and now he got the TDL ceo. They never did confirm that he was the enforcer for Toyo since he kinda just laughed when accused of this, so I'm sticking with my theory that he's working for Nogi.
