It's understood that if you willingly step into a Kengan ring there's a non-zero chance you're gonna die.

Adam Dudley is a white Texan living during the Mobama presidency. The fact that he hasn't fallen for Blue Lives Matter rhetoric makes him one in million.

The skill vs strength theme is a repeat of Wakatsuki and Agito's match too.

Is this a spoiler or are you confusing Waka with Okubo?

Edit: Crap, maybe I am talking about a spoiler.

But the strength v skill thing isn't just something I'm kind of assuming now that I think of it.

Given that Gandai has used its only official substitution on switching Jun to Seki, is there a kayfabe-preserving way to switch back to Jun in subsequent rounds?

The most important measure of each fighter's character in this manga is their ability to become rival fightbros with another fighter, and those who do not either offer or accept another's offer are all garbage assholes. Raian made no such attempts. Akoya obviously didn't, even when graciously offered, because All Cops Are Bastards. Meguro was a psychopath who couldn't. It's also why I'm not too keen on Julius.
Agito became Okuba's, which is a point in his favor after seeming kind of flat. Muteba offered his respects to Sekibayashi, so he's not irredeemable. Sekibayashi is so great, that he picked up Akoya's slack with Harou.

Now we see Gensai hanging out in a flashback with someone he calls a competitor, so we know he's alright.

Also, I think those two panels of Jerry Tyson thinking would make a nice gif.

I don't think they've explained it yet, but in case they did and I missed it; what does Hatsumi mean when he realizes that Bando couldn't perform his arm whip in the first round?

If Agito likes to beat people with their own styles, what would he do against Bando?

But what I really want to see is him in a pro wrestling match against Seki.

Iíve been going through some older issues, and Gozo got his face literally kicked in by Wakatsuki, even more horrifically than the little dents given to Jerry Tyson or Okubo, and theyíre all fine now. I donít recall anyone else with an imploded face who showed up soon after, fine or otherwise.

I wonder if the terrible facial violence that happens to so many characters is more of a dramatization, compared to Gaolangís fist, as people are actually talking about the consequences of the latter.

The final fight will involve Kazzy somehow substituting for Agito/Gensai, and Ohma's heart will give out the exact moment Kazzy throws a punch.

During the Gensai/Setsuna fight, Jerry Tyson feels something familiar about Gensai, then had a sudden realization of something that means Gensai "can't be defeated." We were never told what that was, right?

Looks like we'll find out what caused Bando to snap in the sequel.

Also, after Rihito's loss to Gensai, wasn't there a panel saying something like "These were just the start of dark days ahead for Rihito?"

A week late on this discussion, but the only problematic thing about Kengan Asura's portrayal of businessmen is that it falsely implies they are cool bros who are fun to hang out with.

Kengan matches also had Metsudo and maybe his predecessors encouraging competitors and sponsors to engage in skulduggery and rule-bending in order to foster Dark Elf business Darwinism, while Purgatory is about putting on the best possible fights.

There were a few fights back in Kengan Ashura that ended in faces literally punched in, only for the guy to show up later fine. I donít think the worst of the facial violence (that isnít inflicted by Muteba and Meguro) is completely diegetic.

Meguro had that weird masochistic brain chemistry, so itís probably significant whether Masaki is in just regular pain from the big hit he took like the characters think.

Just lol that we probably have a mirror match again, with both fighters having super reflexes and having a martial arts based on mimicking fighting with a weapon barehanded.

Also they both inflict unauthorized brutal violence while employed as arms of the state, discounting the imposter thing.
