I believe in Gensai, because if Setsuna beats Gensai then next round is Setsuna vs Rei and who the gently caress wants to see that? I want to see Gensai stomping Setsuna into the ground and then the big assassin vs assassin fight where he'll also feed Rei his spleen.

Look at that masterful feint by Gensai. He's made it look like he's having the first flashback, but it's actually a flashback for Setsuna's teacher. This not only gets Setsuna to let his guard down, thinking flashbacks are now safe, it obliges him to also flashback at length about his training, weakening him further.

Also I like how the teacher was initially portrayed as basically Akuma, but we now see he was a pretty chill guy.

This guy was right. Gensai feinted Kiryu into having a flashback.

Gensai's flashback bait was even better than expected. At this point Setsuna has had not only two chapters of flashbacks of himself but also two chapters named after him. Setsuna's done. Stick a fork or a lance in him, Gensai's going on.

Fang's already stolen Gaolang's fighting style so I'm not sure what else is left now.

Fight's only just started but if it's just going to be a boxing match and Gao's flashbackstory I'm less interested than when Okubo's abilities getting assimilated.

I feel like even losing fighters tend to get a bit of spotlight by the manga, so I don't think it'll be just that. My bet is that he'll be able to beat Agito as long as Agito sticks to boxing only until Agito consciously abandons the boxing style - at which point Agito has won the match, but essentially lost on pride? At least that's what I'm hoping for.

Oh, that's actually a real good point. I still see Fang having to win (because he needs a rematch against Sen), but somehow I totally forgot that Muay Thai is on the table.

I like that Kazzy's incredible visual acuity was foreshadowed back when they had to pick brackets, and Kazzy picks an absurdly high number, thinking it bugged out and slowed down a little so he could pick it.

He actually asks about this

He does, it's just nice that it was actually set up instead of suddenly being a thing.

Problem was he only landed a single punch and like two kicks before he started using his ripper. So it's not like he could have bled the falcon too much prior to when he started his own offensive.

Because he was trying to predict Falcon's moves instead of just going "gently caress it, tanking that hit and taking his pectoral muscles"

It's still left ambiguous, but Tiger eyes was said to have received a fatal blow but given how Ohma's own death turned out I don't think that matters much.

other way around. The Devil is how Setsuna refers to Ohma's Niko. Tiger Eyes died but dealt Niko a fatal blow. Everything else still stands, obviously, Setsuna can be wrong.

Theory: Masaki is Meguro's little brother, was the true killer and somehow mindfreaked his big bro into believing he was the actual culprit

I would be very surprised, because Masaki is 21 years old and the killings were 22 years ago at this point.
