Gensai is the old but not ancient martial arts master who is privy to the secret of whatever Niko's deal was.

He'll make it to the semi-finals at least.

I mean Ohma died so Setsuna and his rivalry can get bent, Kazzy's substitute fighter Jun Sekibayashi is the one who'll be taking down the Fang in the final round.

I want Wakatsuki to lose becuase I was pretty disappointed that Julius went out so fast and against Wakatsuki.

Who can defeat this inhumanly strong meat castle? This other slightly smaller inhumanly strong meat castle, by using his strongest muscles.

Well since the winner here will be up against someone who will bounce their rear end in the quarter finals regardless I'll vote Bando because I think he's cool.

Please be okay Bando, so that you can watch Gaolang avenge you.

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.

I assume Fang simply resorts to the most effective configuration of martial arts required to beat an opponent he can't really copy. Like I expect he has unreasonable physical strength but I don't see him beating Wakatsuki in plain rear end brawling, which is why he did whatever he did to his ankle. Presumably this is why Toyo Electric just went with the ultra musclehead who disdains technical fighting.

He also seems to have a conversation with himself. Now I kinda wonder if his gimmick isn't having split personalities, where he creates new personality for each style he copies and masters and then switches between them mid-fight. :allears:

Yeah all the quotes around "Us" and "We" and "I" make it seem like he's got some headmates in there or something. Mr. Boxer seems like he's gonna have to tap out though, because Gaolang does not exactly seem impressed thus far.

gaolong dealing with Sen is a far more interesting fight than Sen vs Fang

Fang is just a more competent version of the dude Sen fought in the first round and that's dull. God I hope Gaolang wins.

I realise this is a fighting manga and ohma is going to win the tournament but he's got another 2 fights today and just tired himself out lol

Ohma is becoming more powerful the more dead he should be. He will finally perish in the last match and rise again as a fight lich.

I respect a man whose decided that there aren't enough zeroes on the check for getting punched into a crater.

Kinda annoyed Waka is probably gonna mostly walk off having the bulk of a dudes fingers stabbed into his neck though.

Setsuna picked a weird moment to run riot. I assume this all some circuitous method of getting a fight with Ohma but I don't see how.

I'm surprised anyone is actually rooting for Rei. Especially after he got Saw Paing drinking jack and not smiling.

I mean like half the thread is weirdly fixated on his destruction which makes me feel contrary and also I share his stance on boobs.

What 'the power of love' seems to mean to him (head pats are nice and go fish is fun) is pretty drat weird, too, compared to, say overcoming obstacles to your relationship or saving your beloved from ninjas.

I mean he seems to have been trained from infancy to be a runs fast assassin. His world view might be a bit off.

Rei's feet exploded in the last charge and Gensai doesn't truck with spur of the moment improvisation. This match is going to the karate man.

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

The Agito loss is the one where he got his ankle completely hosed up I think. Probably a much harsher fight then whatever went on with Sen.

I want to see Sen win just so Gensai gets to fight someone whose actually a master of a real martial art and not just dudes with one weird trick.

So are we all at the point where most every other fighter is more interesting than Ohma?

I mean yeah he's going to be the new Fang under Kazzy but bleh

OR MAYBE THATS HOW FANGS ARE! REALLY GOOD FIGHTERS BUT pretty meh when it comes to characterization

I mean I'll put chill Ohma above Waka at this point but frankly yeah let's just cut to Fang vs The Best Karate.

Sindai posted:

I've been half-expecting that for a while since it seemed pretty late to introduce the primary antagonist but too many characters would have known his face for it to really make sense.

We got 3 fights in the tournament left, at least one more chapter of Setsuna flashback and probably another where he gets stomped out of like the 30 that's left. I don't know that there's time left for Advance dude to do anything at this point.

At this stage I don't think Fang has any reasonable cards left to be played, although I guess he could bust out his own ultimate technique from the Niko style.

Which doesn't actually disqualify him based on Ohma's memory problems I guess.
