So Sakaki and the God Fist were once rivals like Kenichi and Tanimoto. And Akira actually has 1 win over him very interesting.

The fight I have wanted since they first introduced Akira. Damn it gets my adrenaline going.

Did anyone notice how they glossed over Tanimoto's allegiance so easily? Before they made it so ambiguous on where his allegiance lied.

Will we finally get a full backstory for Sakaki?

I am definitely looking forward to Sakaki vs Akira. I have to admit though, I do kind of want the God Fist to win.

Anyhow, I'm still not sure we're going to get Sakaki vs Akira just yet...this chapter moreorless reaffirmed he's in the top tier of One Shadow Nine Fists though. Was also nice to see a villain training his disciples for a change.

Funny you use the word villain because Akira is probably one of the most honorable men in Yami.

He happens to practice the Satsujinken but unlike Kensei and a few others, he doesn't hurt innocent people and he cares for his disciples. He's a good guy following the wrong path.

I don't remember reading about Akisame's past.

I'm not exactly sure where it is (have to double check) but I've heard that Akisame was best friends with Saiga Fuurinji, now known as the One Shadow, as a youth. He even told Kenichi that he shared a lot of Saiga's traits. And should Saiga ever make himself known, it would either be Akisame or the Elder who'll fight him. Hope this helps.

Yeah, he even kept his own disciples from killing each other lol

You also forgot about the elder, whose adventures would probably make an entire series all on their own.

Not really much on his past tho is it, I'm sure we'll dive deeper later on but atm him and Ma Kensei we know quite little of their pasts.
Other than a few basic outlines, we have no idea why/how they came to Ryozanpaku.

Well besides, the Sasaki vs Akira line up, we also got Shigure vs Mikuchin on the table(I'm all for a cat fight but I wouldn't mind seeing the Akisame fight, 2 jujutsu masters should also prove interesting)
I'd actually like to see Shigure go up against an weapon master, equal to the Shadow Fist.
I'm guessing Ma Kensei and his brother will probably fight once again.

Oddly not bothered about who Kenichi fights, unless it involves Chikage-chan, or Rimi-chan!

The Elder was excluded of course, but you' re right,For his, adventures would take a whole series,especially when it was partner with Mikumo ...

I really enjoyed this chapter as it was an indication of the calm before the storm type of set up. Really like how Kenichi and Tanimoto relationship as rivals are brought up and how poor Tanimoto still whips out the threats in order to fight against that cliche. It's going to be interesting to see how the upcoming Sakaki/Akira match is going to play out since both seem equally match dispite the win loss record that was stated by Sakaki. Really enjoyed the training equipment that Akira is going to use to train his two disciples.

You know, I hope there's a time skip at the end, showing Tanimoto and Honoka married, and she still has him under her thumb
