Jun's greatest weakness (disregarding the whole taking every attack that comes his way) seems to be attacks that he doesn't expect.

Since he has a self-enforced rule of taking every blow that comes his way, he's aware that they're coming and is mentally prepared to take them on, which helps him steel himself mentally for every strike.

But two times he's been caught off guard.

The first time was when Ouma pinched him, and the second time was when Koizan kicked him this fight.

Like, while he recovered pretty quick against Ouma, and did have his whole pro wrestlers are good actors talk, I do think his initial reaction was purely reflexive.




This has got me real worried how his next fight is gonna play out. Mutaba seems like the worst opponent he could have.

Are people actually scared of kiryuu?

Probably not until later when he fights. At this point the people in the manga who have never seen him fight probably only know him as the guy who is incredibly horny for Ohma.

Oh right we have an entire day of downtime before the next round.

My question is, will hatsuma advance unopposed if the doctor of deaths disease ends Gumby the Murdering med-student? Or weaken him... or since this is a punchmans manga, have no real affect?

What if Hatsuma decides to wander off like usually does from time to time? So neither fighter is present for the match.

Funny then that both guys got picked on purpose for the first round, while everyone avoided Gensai like the plague. I wonder if the second round is gonna shed more light on him and his CEO, they've both been pretty distant to the story so far.

Well he seems to knows Niko. Dude looks like he is going to become more important with that panel.

You can infer it from this chapter if you look at Muteba's hands in the page he goes for the eye-gouge. Also note the sfx for "Tap" and where it is
But it will get explained next chapter don't worry.

This doesn't bode well for Setsuna. Gensai was friends with his master and presumably knows how his style works

I just thought about this.

Also Setsuna got blueballed which is another advantage for Gensai.

The extra chapter is a bit of a retcon. Originally Muteba approached that ship on a little dinghy, and the pirates definitely would've noticed a helicopter.

I'll take it because it made Muteba a lot cooler.

It makes a lot of sense to get Setsuna out of the tournament now, since Rei vs. Setsuna or any future Setsuna fights would just be the same poo poo. Rakshasha's Palm basically being a OHKO makes it real hard to write fights around.

So gently caress him up Gensai.

Pharma CEO just betrayed Nogi I guess, I wonder if he’s working for Toyo or just making a run at the throne for himself. They know Sen is a big threat and this is a good opportunity to get some damage on him.
