He has a clear advantage. Rei has zero endurance and his style is about getting the kill shot in an instant. Without getting the kill shot, he requires the one hit knock out which is the absolute worst case when fighting screamingfaggot since he is nothing but an endurance fighter.

I'm hoping he doesn't come back. It's nice to have an MC stay dead in a shonen now and then.

I don’t mind if Ohma cames back but not as MC. Still that would mean making him actually mature, otherwise we are going to have his neverending premise of the loner who only wants to be the stronger, and many of the side characters fullfill that will in a more refreshing way.

Yeah, their bodies became stronger and sturdier over generations, allowing them to remove brain limitations on their bodies for prolonged periods of time without the risk of their bodies breaking. Kure can be called the Newtons of Kengan Asura.

>>179246567
Advance creates energy (heat) for the body to use (heat converted into motion = energy converted into strength). Removal, on the other hand, lets the body act to its full potential. I'm sure you've heard about how the human body unconsciously imposes limits on itself so as to not cause the body damage.

As to how the Kure Clan's eugenics program fits into this, think of it like overclocking a computer. The better the existing hardware, the better the effect and the computer's ability to withstand the strain. Or something. Hell, I don't actually know that much about overclocking, just parroting other people, but the analogy is clear enough.

The reason of...supporting his employer? that's why most of them are in the tournament.

Giga nigga is just there because he's getting paid. Actor guy was there because he's getting paid. Sumo guy was just there because he wanted to show off his fake sumo. Adam was just there because he was getting paid. etc


Most of the competitors don't have some deeper reason for competing, it's just their job. At least Sasuke has an actual personal reason to support his employer, and it's not just because she's paying him
>>
>>179248365
>Adam vs Haru
Haru slaps Adam's shit in. Unfortunately this is the same problem as Julius vs Wakatsuki where the larger frame provides a lot of advantages. Also haru is definitely a stronger striker and more durable opponent even with the weight working against him at times.

>Mokichi vs Inaba
I want to give this to Mokichi, but if he can't get out of any hair ties it's game for him and he's not a brute in strength. But a technical monster.

>The Murobuchi Gozo vs Sawada
No contest, fitness man will take down the ballerina.

>Meguro vs Takeru
Maybe sumo wins? Meguro may just gouge him down though.

>Karo vs Nezu
Disney land may come through but we don't really know anything about Nezu to rate this fight. Ahab is pretty sturdy though.

>Rihito vs Ren
Rihito loses once again because chinese twink is a legitimate threat.

>Chiba vs Hanafusa
I don't know if Hanafusa would bother using poison on Chiba since it's not part of the mission. Also Chiba seems like a legit contender but he would have to fight a painless man. Interesting matchup, I think Chiba comes out on top though barring a sudden stabbing to a vital.

>Kaneda vs Okubo
Okubo wins. Kaneda may have predictions, but that doesn't mean he'll last long enough in a fight to be able to make good on them.
>>
>>179248665
He has no pride, no dignity. He already betrayed his principles for a girl. Remember that friend of yours who started to ignore you and everyone else when he got himself a gf? That's Rei.

He's doing it for the pussy first and foremost. No one likes a guy a like that. Can't wait to see him get BTFO and thrown away like thrash.

>hat great principles is he giving up?
He is the successor of a martial arts style that only has two people at any time, a master and a teacher. And his master has forsaken the fist now as he has passed on everything he knows to Rei. He is ending a lineage spanning centuries simply for a girl. He's a disgrace.

>>179247269
>I am fine with the Earth arc so far
I guess I just find COSMOS to be vastly less interesting and the new surgery gimmicks to be kind of lackluster. Going to earth did add some stakes beyond another TPK, but at the same time shifting from Humans vs Aliens to Humans vs Humans vs Illuminati vs Aliens got old fast on mars and even older here.

Owl guy owns though, I loved his fight with the sagely Johj.

>He is the successor of a martial arts style that only has two people at any time, a master and a teacher. And his master has forsaken the fist now as he has passed on everything he knows to Rei. He is ending a lineage spanning centuries simply for a girl. He's a disgrace.

His master specifically says that the style is his, to do with as he pleases. In fact one of the end chapter bits had his master actually looking in on him with the chick. he was a bit flustered, but was ok with it.


His style has been used to work for others since forever, they're pro assasins. the only difference now is he's sticking with a certain one. his reasons are irrelevant, stop acting like "because they pay me" is somehow a more honorable reason than "Because she's fine as fuck". it's personal gain both ways.

Also, he already said he intends to still teach the style, he just intends to teach it as a fighting style rather than a tool for killing, which is reasonable since we don't really need martial arts to assasinate people in a world where bombs and sniper rifles exist.
>>
>>179249489
He’s still a martial artist. Why do you think he’s at the tournament? He’s not a chef.

>I don't know if Hanafusa would bother using poison on Chiba since it's not part of the mission. Also Chiba seems like a legit contender but he would have to fight a painless man. Interesting matchup, I think Chiba comes out on top though barring a sudden stabbing to a vital.
Hanafusa's gimmick, though, is that he has to be 'killed' to be defeated. At the very least, he has to be broken to the point where he can't even will his body to move. So I think Hanafusa's Chinese martial arts would be capable of taking out Chiba, since he doesn't possess the muscle to just ignore it.
>>
>>179249771
>>179249774
Let me rephrase it then because I don't think you get it.

His style is a killing style, he forsaked that for one person. Which would be compelling for a character if Rei had a character to begin with. If there was a better story about how the assassin falls in love and renounces killing it would work. This isn't the case and this will hilariously blow up in his face because he is a Naive kid who doesn't realize the type of woman he fell in with. And that's really why Rei doesn't have anything compelling to him, he talks about love while harboring a completely one sided romance in his own head. All while spitting on other fighter who have more to worth fighting for because they are more selfless than he is.

And killing with bare hands doesn't go out of style since guns existed. If anything an assassination style based around moving so fast most humans can't react is more relevant in the modern era because of how firearms have pushed martial skills to the side. If he wants to make it non-lethal that's his choice, but he's giving up on his heritage for really dumb reasons.

For any of the other "doing it for the money" characters, you have a spectrum. Muteba has a character and interactions with people. He's evolved from just being a brutal mercenary to a bit of a dandy and a somewhat respectful fighter. He chose not to kill Seki when the option was available to him. That right there makes him more than just a one-note character. Wolf fang fist on the other hand is about the same as Rei in terms of characterization, except he has loyalty to his mission and style an entourage as well as the Toyo crew that he cares for so he's not as edgy and standoffish

Then there are the Gensei's of the group. The guy who showed up solely to test his strength and there is no comparison, Gensei is also an assassin and he's shed all worldly desires save the desire to refine himself to the maximum. All while being a grizzled old bastard people can get behind.
>>
>>179248692
Remember that anyone with a win by reveal would get ruined in round 2. Most of the round 1 losses were shonen bullshit fights where the better fighter lost because a gimmick kicked in.
>Adam vs Haru

Depending on how Haru wins (drags the fight out so he reaches his actual potential as was happening before he got K.O'd), it could go either way. We never saw Adam connect cleanly with a proper technique and his basic punches were all insane. We didn't see how High Stick Shot worked either . Haru didn't have ANY techniques and was pure physique, which so far has been a massive detriment to any fighter attempting to beat someone with a modicum of skill.

>Mokichi vs Inaba

Since the only way Inaba wins vs Ohma involves his hair, I can't see Mokichi falling for it. He wins purely because he dominated Raian and caused him to Removal while base Ohma couldn't even hurt him.

>Gozo vs Sawada

Sawada wins. Gozo is a physical beast but he's not Julius levels of bullshit. Again, physique loses to skill when there's nothing else going on.

>Meguro vs Takeru

Takeru wins hands down. Seki showed that Takeru is near immovable and Takeru has an INSANE level of short term power.

>Karo vs Nezu

Karo. He was a monster on every level and Nezu is just an above average fighter. I prefer Nezu as a character but Karo losing to Screamboi was pure blind luck on his part.

>Rihito vs Ren

Rihito loses. Ren lost vs Setsuna by bullshit secret personality nonsense, otherwise he'd have won.

>Chiba vs Hanafusa

Chiba wins hands down. He pressured Sen, who is on par with Agito, into a corner and lost due to a dumb decision. Hanafusa only got so far because twistman is a retard at fighting and just knows kill shots. Any actual skilled fighter would butcher him.

>Okubo vs Kaneda

Okubo. Kaneda's prediction isn't good enough to keep up with Okubo fighting like he did in the early round, let alone if he got serious. Gaolang showed his physique is his weakness.

>>179250730
>Sawada wins
I don't see it since Gozo took a hit from Wakatsuki and got back up instantly. No matter how hard Sawada can kick Gozo has proved that he has the strength and finesse to compete in the Kengan Matches on par with the higher level competitors. He not have Julius' muscle guard, but he's not a chump either. And he does have techniques of his own, in fact his cross arm lock looks identical to the water Kata lock Phantom Niko used on Ohma.

>Seki showed that Takeru is near immovable
And Meguro has shown that even as a child he could lift and throw people 2 times his weight, and even on guard around. Plus he does not hold back when hurting his opponent so you can expect eye gouges and the like. I'm not saying it's a clean victory but there is a reason to doubt if Takeru will be able to beat Meguro if he gets put on the ground.

>Nezu is just an above average fighter
All we know is that Nezu is the champion of another circuit. He's supposed to have a kick heavy style to him and that's about it. Whether or not he can take down Karo is really empty speculation.

>Takeru wins hands down. Seki showed that Takeru is near immovable and Takeru has an INSANE level of short term power.
I think you misunderstand why exactly Takeru is 'immovable'. It's because he roots himself in the ground. Meaning, Seki couldn't push him back. That's not a problem for Meguro since he actually lifts his opponents up into the air for his throws before mounting them.

The problem, then, is an endurance contest, but we know how that works with Meguro. He won't go down without getting killed or crippled, and he's not afraid of immediately going for crippling moves like eye gouges himself.

I don't think YOU get it. He has forsaken his previous views of humans being just bags of shit and blood and found a more fulfilling life than the one he led before his meeting with Rino. Even Rino's secretaries say in the flashback that he has become more like a normal human. He improved as a person and he didn't become weak just because he fell in love.

Just admit that you don't like him purely for personal reasons and would still hate him if he still remained the blood and shit edgelord from his flashback.

>Muteba has a character and interactions with people
So does Rei.

>That right there makes him more than just a one-note character
Rei acts like a cool badass most of the time except when he interacts with Rino and turns into a happy manbaby (who still tries to act cool). Wow, I found two different notes to him.

>except he has loyalty to his mission
So does Rei.

>Gensei is also an assassin and he's shed all worldly desires save the desire to refine himself to the maximum. All while being a grizzled old bastard people can get behind
You are just a beardfag. Gensai (his name is spelled with a) is super one-note but I don't see you hating on him for that.

And I don't hate Gensai, I find him super cool I am just making fun of your "Rei is a shit one-note character".

It was already mentioned that the Raishin style really only works in straight angles. Although Rei may be very fast, his angles are predictable. Against fighters like Saw Paing and Gaolong who are offensive strikers, they eat come forward fighters.

Ohma should stay dead. His fights have been the most boring so far, because since he's the designated protagonist, he kinda has to win. The moment he doesn't, the whole thing goes off the rails.
So far the best parts involve everyone else except him.
I also hope they keep Kazzy as an ordinary man with flashes of insight/courage every once in a while. The good thing about him is that he is, in a way, exactly what he seems and those moments make so that people don't know whether to over or underestimate him.

But at a high cost. Which is ironic in his odd relationship with Karla.

Not that anon but I don't like his mindset, he is too simplistic about the consequences of his own actions and a slave of his own desires. His interaction with Rino and the secretaries are fun to follow, but still is one of the characters that don't make a meaningful change, aside of getting his pride raped later after asking Rino for help in the fight and anyway losing to Beard
>>
>>179251584
Meguro's masochism and stamina makes him nearly impossible to defeat in a prolonged fight; you're going to feel worse and worse, and he'll still be enjoying himself. He's one of the fighters who requires a swift KO, which Gaolang could do easily (he's already been shown to jab sandbaggers into oblivion).
>>
>>179253438
If reforming into a normal, compassionate human being isn't a meaningful change, I don't know what to say to refute you. Rino has made him into a better person, and arguably a better fighter as well, because he now has a loved one to protect. He can't undo all the evil he committed up 'til that point, but it's never too late to repent.

Does Sharkteeth hate her because of how she thinks she can get everything she wants with her body or is it because she brings her repressed gay feelings? She seems to much fixated on her
>>
>>179250730
Ren's loss against Setsuna wasn't bullshit. If a technique that allows you a cheap-shot to KO the opponent didn't work, you fail as a fighter for not hitting hard enough. And to make things worse, it flubbed against one of the lightest fighters in the tournament, which really didn't bode well for his future chances of success especially after revealing his trump card.
>>
>>179254247
Authorial intent says otherwise. I don't agree with how abrupt his reformation was (it takes more than a chance meeting to change a hardened killer), but the change in his character has been depicted in the most glowing terms possible. Contrast this with Raian, who gets zero respect even from his family despite his superlative talent, because he's a homicidal lunatic who's as dangerous to himself as those around him.

This. Even the Kure aren't shying away from modern weaponry; they assassinate a dirty cop with a suppressed pistol in one of the pre-tournament chapters, and Kazuo's eldest son was spied on by snipers 24/7. The theme of classic martial arts clashing with pragmatic techniques is a constant one.

Yes. At the end of the day everyone participating is a major business owner and this is high stakes play. The entrance fee alone is 4.4 million and these CEOs play for tangible and intangible business rights. The whole Kengan society is a high risk high reward system.
>>
>>179252855
She's been conditioned to want the 'seed' of strong fighters. Even if Ohma were crippled, she would still want him because of his fighting spirit and latent strength, though there arguably is an element of true love to her affections due to the lack of propositions to virtually any other fighter despite their own powerful traits.
>>
>>179255582
That depends on the match. You could argue that nearly everyone who participates in an Annihilation tournament comes out a winner, because the international exposure alone would be worth the price of admission. Even the worst-case scenario of losing a fighter isn't that big of a deal, because they're ultimately expendable pawns. As Kenny said, you just have to do well enough to recoup and profit.

>>179252013
>I am just making fun of your "Rei is a shit one-note character".
What is the difference in personality of Rei from when he first showed up and now? Nothing. That is what one note means, not one expression. He's a detached edgelord who has a hard on for a single woman. I know you thought you had some smoking gun epic retort but sadly Muteba went from being some mechanical and gleeful killer who doesn't regard his opponent beyond the injuries they gave him to someone who also has a warriors spirit. That's how you have two notes.

As for how being more fullfilled and changing plays out
It's funny because Muteba losing didn't end his relationship with his CEO. Instead it re-forged their mutual partnership and he even gave sharktooth his card.

Rei lost and goes back to the underworld. Whether Rina or him broke it off, he's back to killing again.

Just goes to show that the power of love only works when the feelings are mutual. It's pretty clear that Rina only keeps him around for her own benefit. Maybe you want to admit that you have a Rei body pillow on your bed and wish to be swept away by a brooding edgelord with the personality of a wet paper bag.
>>
>>179255897
Yeah, the KA Tournament lets you network. Being able to participate already marks a person and their firm out as being special. Yamashita himself got some attention from President OMAHA and the other foreign diplomats in attendance as someone to watch out for in the future as someone who would influence the Japanese economy.

Dunno, you'd think there would be some sort of period where it's treatable and that Ohma's already gone past it. He did die only a few days after the final match, and he spent the entire time under Hanafusa's care. If there was any way to treat him, Hanafusa would know to at least suggest it, don't you think?

Rereading the earlier chapters; I'm assuming the guy meditating under a waterfall here is Sen, and I'm pretty much able to label every other guy (the authors even explicitly pointed out that the guy lifting the car is Julius), but who's the guy reading a book here? Kaneda?

Or he just wanted to dissect him and doing his degenerate Mengele things to his body? While it was played as a comedy act, maybe at the end he just wanted a good specimen and he got it with Ohma's body, being him alive or not. Did we got a funeral chapter? I am not finished with the raws yet

We learned his story and now see him differently than we did before. Wow, Rei REALLY isn't a one note character, who would have thought.
>Muteba went from being some mechanical and gleeful killer who doesn't regard his opponent beyond the injuries they gave him to someone who also has a warriors spirit
Wrong, in his fight against Meguro he showed disdain for that guy's base nature of a monster who doesn't care for anything but killing.
>spoiler
Are you adding even more notes to Rei there?
>As for how being more fullfilled and changing plays out
Muteba enjoys fighting and doesn't care about consequences of him killing people. Past Rei didn't look like someone loving his job.

Really rustled your jimmies there didn't I? Truly this flashback was deepest lore.

Also, thanks for further explaining why Muteba is a far more dynamic character. It's great contrast to your boy toy Sasuke. Next you'll prove that Meguro was better written. Even fucking Inaba had a far better back story of being an assassin turned fighter/protector with a far healthier relationship to his CEO than Rei has with Rina.

How do you even exist in this state of liking Rei? Honest question. What is interesting about him?

How is he likeable? And it's not hatred, he is a boring and uncompelling character. I've stated the reasons why so I'm not going to repeat myself. Seems like your interest in him is just as shallow as Rina's in him.

what do you mean trying to change himself there's no internal struggle within him killing was always just something he did and then he decided to stop because he had his first crush

there is no deeper characterization here what separates him in your mind from the gag character a lot of people see him as
>>
>>179259138
>how is likeable?
The contrast between his behavior and actions is both funny and cute. He is a nice guy too, what with apologizing to Sayaka for entering before he is introduced or to Saw Paing for winning. Add to that the fact that he is a hard working fellow and is giving his all to win.
>And it's not hatred, he is a boring and uncompelling character

No, Karla is also a descendant of a clan of killers, but we can't say for certain that she herself killed anybody.

And this is supposed to reflect badly on Rei? If anything, it makes Rino the Judas of their relationship. Togo's brutally honest about her wickedness at least, while she callously deceived a naive young man into thinking she was his savior. He reminds me of friends who believed they'd found real love, only to find out they simply had a glass heart as the song goes. It happens easier than you think.

And as >>179257268 points out, there's no indication he's forgotten his empathy and relapsed into murder. Like many others, he's grown in character over the story, and a betrayal, while painful, won't stop his reform.
>>

Rei getting played only happened because he didn't do the job he was hired to do. Or if he had a better judge of character.

I wanna roll around with Cosmo on a slippery soft mat, both of us getting sweaty and winded as we rub together and vie for dominance over the other. The warm feeling of his lithe musculature straining and flexing against my skin would have me harder than diamond. We'd hit the showers afterwards and I would steal peaks at his gorgeous frame scintillating as water traces the curves of his perfectly toned body. There would be nothing like waking up the next day with most of my joints sore from all the grapples and locks he put me in the day before just to find Cosie already awake and warming up, looking over just to give me an adorably cocky grin.

True, but the big advantage of Chiba is his influence of intimidation and with every victory his shtick of "I can copy any style so I'm the best." only proves that strength.

Third fang was the guy with a comb over and one of metsudo's guards. Don't know about the second.

The very first Fang was Erioh, who was employed by Metsudo in post-WW2 Japan and helped him become Chairman. We don't know anything about the second and third, but it's very likely they were Bodyguards who distinguished themselves for promotion. The fourth was Omori, who currently acts as Metsudo's personal guard alongside Takayama, who is the prospective 6th Fang (though he was defeated by Kanoh in the past).

I feel like while the Kure attempt to do this, only a few of the clan actually can. Karla, Raian, and the two other guys accompanying them at the KAT can go into the upper echelons.

I don't know; it might have been interesting to have a Russian mercenary/assassin with mechanics that were somewhat different from Muteba's. For instance, a guy who *only* goes for the kill move, doesn't attack otherwise. If done right, such a character could be implemented so as to be just as exciting as Muteba. I don't know, editorial force is always rather suspect.

'Superhuman' is a relative term, especially by the Kure's standards. Relative to a normal human, even the weakest Kure member would be like a force of nature; imagine how much stronger you would be if you tapped into just 10% of your latent energy.

Ultimately, Kure breeding increases the efficiency of the human body by coaxing more force from it than natural. Thus, Karla at 80% is on par or even superior than her older brothers, who're much bigger and muscular on paper but have inferior body control.

Just a tangential note given some of the real-life framework of this manga: Olympians are amazing examples of what a human can achieve. They're perfect result of what excellent genes giving you excellent proportions and a lifetime of commitment to exercise can prove when you're healthy and in your prime.

...and basically any record they set can be obliterated if real drugs were "allowed" it's a JOKE if people believe they're aren't already on some sort of performance enhancer. Sure, Olympains are professional humans, but the drugged possibilities that a human is capable of are the true "superhumans" and would blow those records away.

Exactly. Which is essentially what Removal and Advance are; bio/gene doping elevating you far beyond the pinnacle of normality.

There's a very good reason why the Kure kill to keep their family secrets, because it's not just an issue of losing the element of surprise. If you think they're evil, then try imagining what every country's government would inflict on them in order to replicate their genetic superiority for themselves. Imagine a world whose geopolitics are defined by Removed super-soldiers in every army and every war. Their mere existence is a Pandora's Box that invites further bloodshed to open.
>>

I have to say, based on my knowledge of sound capture/playback hardware, someone with insane hearing trying to discern what's happening through a television seems akin to watching the fight unfold through pic related.

This makes more sense.

What would happen if a Kure used both Removal and Advance at the same time?
Beside getting really fucking close if not outright meeting their death, of course.
