Well it's not Ohma, and Cosmo seems exceptionally unlikely since he's fighting on behalf of his cousin. Raian, maybe? It's against their code but he clearly gives no fucks.

It's the Kure guy, their clan has no code as said before, they have a sniper targeting their client, and the Kengan Association leader outright said Kure clan guy was stabbing him in the back and no just having his relative compete in the tournament

Don't read this if you're not reading raws. Seriously


Agito broke all of Gensai's fingers, but Agito still went down. Hard. Thank loving god, what a boring waste of a character.

Easily. Gotta hand it the creators, Agito's gimmick was dumb but he had one good fight and the (second) best fight in the series. But the later was great because Gensai fought smart and actually had the effects of the match on their bodies play out and have consequences. As soon as Agito was yelling "I CAN'T LOSE, I'M THE FANG OF METSUDO" the fight was done but it played out the conclusion and satisfaction to it perfectly

Rei is what happens when you somehow have less presence and group interactions than Ohma. While having nothing really compelling as motivation either. He's got a hard on for a literal pimp. That's why he's fighting in this tourney.

Rei has a Mommy GF, which makes him unique among Fightman and anime characters in general

I like Rei, because he's basically just a comedy character who gave up all his ~warrior honor~ because he wants to rest his head in the lap of big boob lady. That one Kure guy (Hollis?) had a funny reaction to it early on.

edit: Speaking of Kure, I wonder how far Hollis (who is, IIRC, the strongest non-Raian Kure) would have gotten in the tournament, since I doubt he would have had Raian's reluctance to use techniques (and he could still use like 80% removal or something). He would have lost to Fang, but he probably could have beaten at least half of the other competitors.

Karla is the strongest actually, having access to 90% Removal

Brought To You By posted:

Having an older woman love interested doesn't really make him stand out compared to the rest of the cast though. Plus this will be the second person he fights that has something real worth fighting for. Mockey wanted to keep the smiles of the children safe. And Saw is fighting for an entire village that took him and his family in. As far as we know Rei is only here because of the power of love and let me tell you, lightning chidori Sasuke here isn't doing himself any favors dissing two of my favorite fighters.

My line was a gag, just like Rei is. He's a young, sexy shonen/fighting game protagonist like Luffy or whatever, who when they actually confront they MILF or femme fatale, actually are just as or more affected by their charms, then vice versa.

I have to imagine that while Karla and Ryan both have better removal rates, Hollis would be the better fighter due to his experience and temperament.

While I agree, it's noted that Karla is just as loving rare and weird as Raian, having reached the rate she has at 16 and her success at the family training all together. Hell it's stated she be the dominate/ be female Fang or maybe better if the Kengan fighters were all women despite being insanely youthful. As Hollis, who knows? He didn't ever push Raian as far Ohama did, but he wouldn't be the idiot to reveal his trump card so early or continue a fight after he won, and get a surprise rear end whopping

I want to make a translation note at the end, because while that is Muteba's hobby, it's a very culturally linked one the translators didn't get quie right. He's more specifically is a Les Sapeur, which is specfically Congo fashion movement

Muteba was someone who would be unbeatable if this wasn't a tournament environment and instead normal single fights. He has a bag of lies that he uses on every single opponent to force them to fight in the matches he wants and the diffculty he has in pulling that off is everyone seeing up close, on a day to day basis how he works.

His heart attack move would have hit and KOed every single fighter here, but now he's not only shown it (which in and of itself isn't important) but how he leads into it AKA but faking the relatively easily dodged eye gouges.

EDIT: Gao's the most popular character in the series, let's see what he can do.

Gaolang's power is maximum

Jul 12, 2011


Kanos posted:

He won specifically because he fought Gaolang in a brutal punch-up for an entire match that involved Gaolang taking multiple brutal headshots, then snuck in a single grapple completely out of nowhere to wrongfoot Gaolang for just a moment, which in turn allowed him to finish it with a strike.

The point is that the only reason why it worked is because of the switch up, not because "oh he could have owned Gaolang at any time if he just used his grapples". Gaolang is a top tier fighter, it's not like he's never fought a dude who can grapple before in his life. Fang is deadly because his adaptation and improvisation makes it incredibly difficult to actually get a read on what he's going to do.

Yeah, Fang was on the ropes a long time and gave up boxing and then went to striking and even throwing before this. It was his tactics that mattered, along with throwing away his pride. If he had done it earlier and just tried to curbstomp him in the fight, he would have lost.

Wakatsuki has been weirdly obsessed with beating Agito considering he also lost to Sen

There are probably a couple of reasons.

Sen doesn't fight in the same type of style as Wakatsuki; Agito purposefully beat him at his own game. Sen isn't the number one ranked fighter in the Kengan Association, the Fang is
