kengan ashura is kind of like baki if everyone in baki wasn't covered in grotesque tumors

i like the insane ceo ladies. capitalism is violence, too!

even though the story has come to a complete stop, i am glad that all of these funny and/or cool minor characters get full coverage of their matches.

once again the boring dude wins, but i guess that's one way of establishing villains even though everyone there (except for one person) is pretty darn villainous to begin with

huh. rihito looks surprisingly good for someone who got ganked by a psychotic assassin from a long line of slightly less psychotic assassins.

usually the "ohoho my fighter is sure to win" stuff comes from their employer. this time, the vicious ancient petrified chairman is the one saying it. he doesn't have a vested interest in the outcome of this match.

i hope he does because then for once the obvious underdog gets to win.

but really, "deranged martial arts eugenics program that lasted for centuries combined with constant research and refinement of fighting techniques" vs. "one of his ancestors was like, really badass"? that sure is a battle between bloodlines. how suspenseful!

if mokichi was gonna win he would have needed a much more impressive background. he is the master of an obscure martial art, but that's just not enough narrative weight to tip the scale. but who knows, maybe he has something else up his sleeve.

there is no world kengan cup, or even international kengan matches. corporate arbitration deathmatches are unique to japan, though foreigners are more than happy to spectate.

gimme the GOD DAMN candy

there are other fighting leagues, but not corporate arbitration fighting leagues. bringing business into it paradoxically makes kengan matches less corrupt than usual competitive fighting, as there are very large incentives to not throw matches.

nah, those were generic tournament enforcers. fang there is the chairman's fighter, meaning he is effectively the reigning champion.

a superior physique doesn't guarantee victory. unless you count narrative weight, there aren't any power levels involved.

i think she's an obvious spy but everyone around her is so oblivious that they don't notice.

aide a likes sexy men and is shady as gently caress. aide b also likes sexy men but she likes it even more when they make out and is not shady at all.

they are both pretty great.

what a fearsome man

the funny thing is that rihito could probably rip the hair apart with his silly gimmick.

the chapter said it very plainly- the reason inaba lost so badly was because he pushed ohma just far enough to make him take it seriously

gimme the GOD DAMN candy
Jul 1, 2007


more chapters at a faster pace would be nice, but a steady release schedule isn't bad at all. so many good manga end up incomplete due to translator group woes, you know?

why would you read that as seconds? it is very, very clearly 1 minute 52 seconds.

gimme the GOD DAMN candy
Jul 1, 2007


based on wakatsuki's personality, he takes every opponent seriously. he's not like ohma, who goes easy until he is sufficiently entertained.

the characters in kengan ashura are recognizable as humans, for one thing.

i don't think it is a spoiler that the two vicious assholes without sympathetic backstories are gonna tear each other up.

it's okay if cool dudes lose so long as they aren't killed or put in a coma. that way, they can hang out with the other fighters. meguro can go gently caress himself, though. dude sucks.

the bartitsu guy sucked too!

i'm glad the boring one-note dude lost

gimme the GOD DAMN candy

the only way to stop masaki was to kill him, but he ended up fighting a dude who was perfectly willing and able to do just that

jun is a pro wrestler who takes pride in his profession, while his opponent is a huge jerk who looks down on sumo wrestling. i don't think it'll be completely one-sided, but jun ain't losing here.

in the liner notes i think it said that their resemblance was unintentional, but it looks like they've decided to just roll with it now

this is a huge change of pace from the last fight, but it also owns.

*rad as heck sumo vs. pro wrestling fight happens*

in an extremely wienery voice: "oh, no thanks, i'd much rather get back to the main plot"

we only have partial backstories for some of the fighters, like the jerkwad cop.

sometimes a fighting manga where the main conflict is explicitly not tournament-related is still entirely about a tournament, for no particular reason. actually i think that's just anzai nobuyuki, who is a hack.
