I'd definitely agree that the series could use some more female fighters, but the female characters we have are pretty solid.

Great chapter. I absolutely love Haru's character so far. It seemed like he was being set up for simple cannon fodder with a kinda sad backstory, but at this point I could even see him pulling off an upset. I believe in the strongest warrior in the Himalayas.
Also it's nice to see that Kazuo's instincts are still on point, I think he was the only one to realize that justice guy was being controlled.

Ketchup Ninja is a pretty good short and funny read and is pretty accurate with a lot of American cultural things since the author actually lived here.

I honestly think Robinson might take it, leaving the kures to take a more behind the scenes role for the tournament. The kure clan seems important to the story, but none of the important ones seem to be on the bracket. This guy doesn't seem to have much to him other than "is really crazy and obnoxious"

Yeah, he who shows his superpower first generally loses. Kinda wish they would mix it up a bit more than they have to make things a little more unpredictable, maybe this will be the fake out and Robinson takes it. He's a much more interesting fighter, but that never stopped buff justice cop from winning.

He is actually the direct descendant of Sherlock Holmes whose legendary adventures were falsely believed to be fictional because they were so incredible.

Skimmed ahead through the raws against my better judgement mostly to see if the doctor vs prisoner doctor fight would be cool because those were the two that seemed pretty fun and it certainly didn't disappoint. I finally managed to stop reading ahead and I look forward to the next few decades of waiting for the translation to catch up. Luckily the characters are just as entertaining as the fights so it should still be fun to read the translation.

I love that pretty much all the animosity between the non edgy fighters disappears after the fights and they're just hanging out together.

How chill most of the fighters are when not fighting is still my favorite thing in this series. Imai and Dudley watching the match together .

Seriously one of the best parts of the manga, nobody ever takes it personally when they lose a match. I really like the (raws spoiler, but not really a huge one) doctor dude who's obsessed with disecting people, he winds up treating most of the severely injured fighters who all chill out in the infirmary

Just a simple, fast slugfest between probably two of the physically strongest fighters in the tournament. I really like this fight, you really get a sense of the incredible amount of superhuman force being delivered with each blow.

I mean he was definitely weaker, but I think Wakatsuki is probably one of the top contenders in the tournament overall, and even he immediately acknowledged his insane power and went all out from the start. Decathlon Man also took a couple of those trademark concrete shattering blows and came right back at him so he certainly was no slouch.

I'm having trouble trying to wrap my head around the logistics of him leaving that trail of exhausted women in his wake and still making it to the fight on time. Did he leave an hour or so early so he could take a gently caress break every few steps or did he just like walk and gently caress at the same time? I hope it wasn't the second because he couldn't have lasted very long if that was the case judging by the distance in between the women. Maybe they had already hosed in the bedroom and he just decided to leave a breadcrumb trail to let his boss know he had left for the fight?

He seems like the guy who in any other manga would be a one off character set up to job to the psycho guy after getting cocky to set the psycho up as a big threat, but every time Meguro pulls some crazy poo poo, he fires right back with something crazier.

I'm hoping we'll get a panel from Jun next fight as cool as the rib shattering dropkick he hit on Ohma. That's definitely the fight that sold me on the series. The series does an amazing job of conveying huge hits.

Which of the remaining matches are you guys hyped the most for?

Personally I can't wait for the doctor deathmatch. I can see a match between two medical experts getting even more vicious than Muteba's match, and I really like both the fighters. One's a polite ex-medical student who was arrested because he liked raiding yakuza offices in his spare time for whatever reason, and the other's the batshit dissection-obsessed doctor who's ironically done nothing but run the medical center extremely competently so far, even saving Mokichi's life from that broken neck.
