"... gay for him...?!" Of course, it's Christopher Eclair!

Some even mistook him for a woman, initially. Including me.

I really enjoyed this chapter. From the color pages to the fight between Sakaki and Cyril. I like how Sakaki was looking for an attempt to rescue Rachel and did it in a bad ass fashion. I really enjoyed the quips said by both Sakaki and Jenazad duing the fight, and I really enjoyed how Jenazad was presented in the color page. Speaking of which, I really love the continuity of Shigure only wearing her cloth instead of wearing a regular swimsuit like the rest of the three girls.

Wow, pure Sakaki pwnage!!! Ethan's master looked horribly strong the first time I saw him, I thought he would be the first of the 9 fists to actually put up a fight...

And lmao at Shigure's sleep talking.

Badass chapter, especially when Sakaki said he doesn't need to know the name of villains so they should shut their traps.

They said Elder had trouble with Demon Fist? I think the key here is "had", there's no one who can fight the superman on equal footing now... probably.

And Rachel is friggin hot!!! How come all the side characters are upstaging Miu?

Sakaki, the lucky one........

Cause Slicardo is def. stronger (and older) than Sakaki, i claim. He calls him brat.
He witnessed Sakaki's abilities and sees him as a good toy to play with.

Ethan's master isn't that strong, though it could be the small battlefield that restricted his movements.

Sakaki harem? Don't think so. Only the girls would have some romantical interests.
He sees them more as children that he needs to take care with.

Actually, i am quite dissappointed.

Kensei and Akisame had the best master fights so far.


But the moment will come for Sakaki when he faces God Hand. Karate vs. Karate.

Aww...it ended within one chapter? depressing

I was definitely hoping that this master fight would have lasted longer but ah :/
Although Sakaki definitely rocked ass and I was only surprised that he didn't completely tear off that guy's facial hair XD

And LOL at the attempt to curse Sakaki...yea, Shigure is more scary with her sleep talking curses

Well actually , the fight wasn't the priority . It was Rachel + the helico will crash if they keep fighting .
Ahah "Shigure's sleep talking is much scarier"

- Silcardo (top 3 of Yomi)

- Kushinada (top 3 of Yomi)


These two should be the strongest out of the nine fists.

Though i don't know about that unnamed Chinese Kempo Master and Unnamed Muay Boran Master

I don't know if they are top 3, but Diego is probably one of the weaker ones. God Hand is definitely one of the strongest, he screams badass. And then there's Kensei, and the leader of Yami who defeated James the boxer. We haven't seen nothing yet.

I wonder is we'll ever get to see Kenichi go one-on-one against a master?

To me, that would be one of the greatest scenarios that could possibly happen.

IMHO this will be last fight - Kenichi vs. Miu's father.

And so the arc ended...well if they went any further it would be a different arc all on its own
I don't mind the interruption of the fight, even in HSDK too much fighting could be a negative point. Nice chapter, gives a feeling of completion after reading it.

@Mizuno:

Simply, i interpreted it this way cause it was indicated.
The invincible Superman had problems fighting against Silcardo.
And Kushinada is even older than the Elder and fought along him, not to forget she showed a glimpse of her skill against Ma.
I can't see anyone in Yomi being stronger besides Shadow One.

@Arturro:
Hm, i dunno.
Either the author will skip several years in the story or it will take decades (if even possible) for Kenichi to reach the level atleast of the Elder....

Kenichi masters as well as some other martial artist says again and again that he doesn't have any talent for fighting. On the other hand we know how enormously his combat abilities has grown, also Elder is teaching Kenichi his secret techniques. Elder doesn't teach this techniques to anyone other than Kenichi. It is a little suspicious that Elder as well as other masters, are teaching a talentless guy martial arts, just because he is nice and hardworking guy. There is some hints that elder already has choosen Kenichi as his succesor - teaching him secret techniques, giving him some items (arm protectors or something like that) and so on.

Then Kenichi must be a born genius in fighting and he doesn't know it.....

Still, i can't imagine him fighting someone who is most probably even stronger than the Elder any time soon. This will take years.
He is nowhere near being a master or even a super master now.

So the author has to skip several years to show Kenichi grew into a master.

Well, he is the hero of a shonen-manga, so it is quite realistic that by the end he will be the strongest.

btw: Elder's techniques don't seem to be that special. There quite a lot of people who can use seikukken ory even ryu-seikukken .

We have never actually seen anyone use Ryuusui Seikuken like the Elder and Kenichi do; Takeda's version was shallow compared to Kenichi's. The only person who MAY have it is Mikumo, due to what Sho said about training with her, but even that is not for certain.

Seikuken on the other hand IS more common for high level Sei-type fighters.

@Battler-kun
That´s not the gist of the story.
Having talent is not what Kenichi has. What you need is conviction and the right heart for it (Kenichi has!) and then an enormous amount of training to reach your goals.

@ ch250
I especiallly liked the colorful page with the girls in swimsuits (who wonders? )
And second the way Silcardo Jenazad was described. Even Kensei and Akisame were thrilled hearing of him. Seems like he is an enemy none of them would want to face .. calls for the elder (and I bet, he can pawn him - last time he just wanted to reach his ship..)

But still a bit unhappy... Ryozanpaku always wins (which is good) but the excitement fades a bit..

And Ichiei (the one shadow) defenitely is stronger than the OSNF

And not one, but six super competent, super determined masters.

"conviction and the right heart for it and then an enormous amount of training to reach your goals." won't get you to the level to beat One Shadow , and especially not in that short amount of time.

Come on, Kenichi is still an angsty youngster.

It would be ridiculous by the author if he will show any Kenichi vs. (Super)Master fights.

Actually i do wonder what the author will do after Kenichi beat all Yami-members.

HSDK began good, but i am not pleased with the amount of fanservice in the previous chapters.
