That reminded me of Vinland Saga. After so many chapters, [spoiler]End of Prologue.[/[spoiler]

All round 1 matches complete! Looking forward to the next set of bouts, I'm rooting for Sekiyaba Jun and Kuroki Gensai.

I don't get it, what happened? Can it be inferred or is it something that'll only be revealed next chapter? I see the ear gouging, then some funky hand movements and almost an eye gouge? And suddenly it's a fatality or something?

Iirc the brackets correctly, we have Setsuna vs Gensai next who are both being sold as super strong so that should be great.

Since the chapter ends on the headbutt as a cliffhanger instead of showing Saw winning the fight with the headbutt, then the fight definitely will not end with the headbutt. :smith:

There's still the possibility that Rei gains the advantage next chapter and then Saw wins in Chapter 152. :unsmith:

This is one of the things that I really like about Kengan Ashura: if a chapter ended on a cliffhanger, it didn't mysteriously end there and but the audience only finds out the result at the start of the next chapter; some thing(s) has to happen before it concludes. And if it does end at a chapter, the ending is definitive and clear.

What I'm saying is, next chapter is Saw Paing just hanging onto Rei while upgrading the Hammer of Burma into the HAMMERS OF BURMA

I really like the idea that some fighters are scared of death/pain. We saw it with Imai, and we're seeing it again with Sen (or at least, that's what Bando is thinking). Gives the characters range and differentiates them, especially from other action manga I feel.

So did sen actually kill him

Of course not. No matter how lethal you are, nobody dies, ever.

Meguro who?

Yo Gaolang's full page shot was drat cool. Can't wait!

Artelier
Jan 23, 2015




I think Kaneda got the roughest draw of the four idiots. He immediately starts off with Best Boxer Gaolang (and loses) but if he won, he'd have to fight Evolving Fang of Metsudo, then Peak Condition Sen, then Friendly Master Genzan, which makes his last match for the block the "easiest," Ninja Wannabe Rei.

I guess Okubo counts too, just swapping Gaolang and Fang.

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

Where is this from? I'm surprised Gao's the number 1 pick, though he is great.

Hate-Senpai posted:

Like, that part where Ouma's doing his mental training on how he can beat Adam and Gozo where imaginary Nico goes, "You're only basing this on what you've seen, they probably have other stuff they couldn't show off due to how their match went" was really nice.

Yeah, I loved that.Just because he saw them fight like that in that matchup, it doesn't mean that was the extent of their abilities or how they would've approached Ouma.

Awesome chapter with an amazing amount of references.

We still haven't seen the conclusion to Gaolong/Adam/Kaneda/Cosmo vs spinny sword guy right? It ended on Kaneda basically going "Oh poo poo Cosmo's got (imperfect) Foresight now!"

Wow that look into Cosmo's mind as he desperately tries to find a way to win is incredibly engaging and amazing.

I love it too! He's been with us since more or less the start, and has gotten quite a lot of upgrades like Ohma has.

I also love the reaction shots of everyone watching the final moment of the fight. He's made the most friends, and they were rooting for him.

i like that muteba is always evaluating attack efficiency, even if it's against him

Artelier
Jan 23, 2015




i wish this fight was maybe a chapter longer but i feel this conclusion is extremely consistent with muteba's character

the whole time he's been commenting he's like "why are you doing it like this it's not worth it" and he ends his run with "why would i do this it's not worth it"

also great reveal on wakatsuki's eye, which makes sense

Gotta say, I really like the characterisation of Ohma and Wakatsuki here. Ohma being openly terrified/in shock for the first time, and Wakatsuki just gritting his teeth and going all in for the victory has made me appreciate them more

Kuroki Gensai, legendary super assassin with fingers that can pierce stone easily, is a great friend and I love it.

Speaking of, I'm rooting for The Beard. Let's go!

I R SMART LIKE ROCK posted:

It was basically foreshadowed earlier when Fang shut him down hard. Ohma has to be given the chance to make up for that

Naw, when Sen was like "What if we fight in the finals," Ohma was like "Then I'd have beaten Sen by default."

What I'm saying is GO GENSAI PIERCE THAT PLOT ARMOUR

Prediction: Fang is going to get his rear end kicked, adapt, and lose anyway.
