Hm... Kengan Ashura is kind of like Baki if everyone wasn't male, and there were actually some female characters.

But Jose is right, both are good.

There's only 1 that's a fighter though, and she's not even in the tournament.

The writer's note about visiting an actual wrestling match and seeing actual thumb tacks being used in matches terrified me, like holy poo poo, what the hell.

Yeah that's called extreme wrestling, it's pretty gross.

Kazuo and his CEO are better developed characters so I think they'll win. And then their next opponent will beat their strategy.

RIP Rihito when he goes up against Setsuna in the 2nd round. He's gonna get murdered to get to Ohma.

So for the semi-finals I think Ohma(top left bracket), Setsuna(top right bracket), and Fang(bottom right bracket) are a given but I have no idea who's gonna win the bottom left.

Also keep in mind these predictions only work if the tournament goes as planned. We've still got Hassad and Medicine Man as wild cards afterall.

RatHat
Dec 31, 2007


Takeshi was said earlier to be the only fighter that could go toe-to-toe with Fang so yeah he's very strong. He's gonna be dunked by Julius to show that Julius is a real threat though.

I guess the whole breathing analysis thing is so Akoya can beat his opponent's without killing them?

Yeah it's probably just a coincidence.

That's someone else. You'll know him when you see him, IIRC he's still wearing prison stripes.

Haha "Medically impossible". What manga does he think he's in?

Hassad wasn't beaten by Ohma, he got wrecked by the bodyguards.

This is correct. One of the best things about Kengan Asura is that defeated opponents usually come back instead of disappearing forever like most manga. Makes it feel like the world doesn't just revolve around the protagonist.

Yeah I was tempted so I "read" through the raws too. I look forward to reading the translated versions in 2019.

Weapons aren't allowed in Kengan matches.

As mentioned earlier in the manga there are definitely other fighting leagues in Japan/the world though.

with there being like another 10 volumes already made i wonder where the story is going after this tournament

Yeah uh the tournament isn't even over yet. It's up to the final 8.

Yeah, there are some unexpected wins/losses. I'll say that no one in this thread has correctly predicted every fight.

I wonder how Inaba would fair against a lot of the other fighters. I imagine that, at the very least, the strength based ones would be a big problem for him.

Yeah with how specific his gimmick is he'd have a lot of trouble with certain fighters.

For the people who've read the raws: is Nezu Mazami (Mickey Mouse guy) as amazing as I hope he is?

He's not bad but he gets overshadowed by pretty much everyone else.

where the red fern gropes posted:

im just wondering why the fang is matched against someone who was not placed last

they voluntarily chose to go against him first?

Yeah if you look at the order in the lottery they were like #6 so they chose that spot because they wanted to fight Fang.

vvv We're over 100 chapters behind.

By the way that was the last chapter of volume 8 so we'll probably get the omake next which is about Inaba and his CEO when they were kids.

based on mr ballet caving his skull in earlier, my guess is that judoman has a rare genetic defect and his brain is actually in his stomach or something

Yeah no, this ain't Baki. There's weird medical anomalies but nothing as extreme as that.

AtomikKrab posted:

The real question as well is who are the other fighters owned by Toyo power scarface, We know of 3 and what matches they are/were supposed to be in. We therefore have 3 more hiding in the second side of the bracket.

There is one more fight in the left bracket though.

I'm looking forward to E. Honda vs Zangief.

The Street Fighter crossover continues for the next 2 omakes by the way.

You probably shouldn't question how unrealistic some of the injuries(and healing from them) in Kengan Asura are.

RatHat
Dec 31, 2007


The 2nd bracket definitely has the more interesting fights, yeah.

RatHat
Dec 31, 2007


There's another grudge match: Naoya vs Agito(aka Fang). Muji TV had 4th(iirc) choice for the bracket but they chose the "worst" spot.

RatHat
Dec 31, 2007


Pretty much all the fighters in the 2nd bracket have some gimmick that hasn't been revealed yet so the matches are mostly unpredictable.

RatHat
Dec 31, 2007


I really hope the chapters start getting pumped out more often. At the rate we're going it'll take 2 years to catch up the raws(which are only in the quarterfinals). I guess this manga is pretty wordy so it makes some sense why they take so long to come out.

RatHat
Dec 31, 2007


If it's a character from Kengan Asura that means potential spoilers though. So be careful if you care about that.

EDIT: It's 99% Julius
EDIT2: Wait doesn't Danberu take place before the tournament anyway?

Sawada what's wrong with your faaaaace

tweet my meat posted:

Honestly, after saving Mokichi's life, tending to all the wounded, saving Sawada's leg, the creepy dissection doctor is pretty consistently the least evil character in the manga.

When he was introduced wasn't he looking at a photo album of all his patients that had died?
