Yeah, cuz if not it's just gonna come down to which one of them has the superior Bankai final form.

When did the doctor first appear? I don't remember him at all before part 62.

Chapter 39. Which also contains like half of the fighters' debuts.

Well that's helpful. I can't even remember which murderer won the fight to be considered.

i want to see kazuo accidentally get put into one of the fights

He will fight the Fang of Metsudo and win because you can't kill a man who's already dead inside.

Literally, it can't be done. It's like trying to kill a zombie by making it OD on pills.

The running gags of (a) everyone having King-like levels of misunderstanding about Kazuo, and (b) all the women falling for Ohma, and him being completely oblivious to it, never ever gets old.

Huh, this took a turn. Mugabe's got more fans than Ohma, somehow.

Wow, I can't believe he was literally all about that murder his whole life. Hopefully he doesn't win this one!

I think his backstory seals things for a muteba win.

I hope it does! We've seen less of him than we have Jun but I'd still be delighted if this was the last block of serious focus he got in the story.

Even so I don't think there were many surprises so far, if only because the left side had like, 5 guys so far who were either really heavy favorites or built up well before the tournament. (Ohma, Raian, Cosmo, Takeshi, Julius)

Come on man, you're leaving out Sekibayashi, Setsuna, and Mikazuchi.

I skimmed the raws but this was way back and I only got as far as Raian fighting that dude and him waking up under the doctor's care before I gave up since I couldn't tell what anyone was saying.

Mikazuchi Rei snuck up on Ohma, Hatsumi Sen and I wanna say someone else in an earlier appearance so we know he's either fast, or just really hard to track.

Neat that that fight has demonstrated that Nogi's original choice of representative also wouldn't even be able to damage the Hell's Angel Sekibayashi Jun.

Oh gently caress, even in his combat headspace, Ohma can't shake his intimidation of Kazuo.

im glad they got official permission to let their oc win a fight against ryu, that's living the dream right there


Yeah, Kazuo is even in there being better at reading the fight than Sakura. Is that canon? I mean, I'm assuming she's better than Dan but I can't say I know much about any of the characters in SF.

Jose posted:

i'm rereading ohma's fight and i wonder why the doctor thinks he'll die soon

I mean, he doesn't seem like he eats a balanced diet, he's basically just looking for any good fight he can get himself into, and nothing about Advance looks healthy pr natural in any way.

Dude's gotta be burning the candle at both ends.

I'm stunned that Ohma would ever forget anyone who taught him a fighting technique that he used regularly.

And we just talked last week how this manga does a good job giving even the obvious jobbers a good fight, what a terrible chapter.
