if you don't want anime, maybe don't read manga.

But then you get stuff like Dungeon Meshi where anime doesn't factor into things at all!

Hm...



I believe in the Devil Lance.

This fight has been pretty interesting, I like that Setsuna is finally using more than just those two techniques, although it turns out he has a pretty good excuse for it (those being literally the only extant techniques of his style). Gensai is a good foil to him, and it would feel appropriate for something he tossed aside in his mad quest to gently caress Ohma to come back to bite him.

Angel of Piratey Death, Yarrr!

I'm starting to think Gensai is just a surprisingly defensive fighter in general. He might also be taking his time because he enjoys fighting but I get the feeling he's observing them so he knows he'll hit with his move before he throws it.

I think this is what Erioh meant when he said Gensai's style was good for "defeating" unlike most assassination styles.

It's paid off super well for him. Just through defense and observation he's gotten Setsuna to reveal a good amount of nasty poo poo that could have made for a pretty horrible surprise in the middle of an attack. It's the kind of thing I really dig, which is probably why I'm enjoying this more than others are. I believe in the beard.

Yeah I think Gensai takes down that side at this point.


So Bando vs sen coming up since Bando got *MEDICINE* that magically cures that stuff MURDERDOC gave him. so DEATHMEDSTUDENT will fight Sen... and lose since Sen has been set up as a major player.

Gaolong will go down to fang. Now Fang vs Sen is maybe in the air but I think Fang beats his rear end then loses to Gensai in the fourth round.

gensai and agito both have ties to Niko. I'm still fo the view that Niko is the only person that Agito has ever lost to

gensai is in serious danger of losing to fang at this point, fang has already made one friend (okubo) while gensai has made zero

gaolang has made one friend (kaneda) which means he's on equal footing with agito. prior friendship with saw paing would give him the advantage but unfortunately he made the foolish error of breaking that off right before his match

I can see any of the next 4 fighters making it to the semis, though the fang is the favorite to make it of course. Gensai beating Rei is all but assured, and I think he of all people has the highest chance of beating the fang (not counting Ohma’s protagonist advantage)

Prediction: Gensai advances to the finals

I dont think fang is going to walk out of the gaolang fight unscathed. We know the characters power is directly proportional to how crazy you can make a face and gaolang still hasn't shown us his murder face.

Gensai is going to absolutely gently caress up ninja boy though RIP
