Practitioners of non-killing are always at an disadvantage against those who kill if only for the fact that their repertoire and options are limited, ceterus peribus. Nothing new there.

I gotta say this fight has been a little... I don't... Underwhelming. Agaard x Apachai was really awesome, but this one I just don't feel it.

Well, the majority of the fight has been done by flashbacks. It's interesting to see Sasaki's past but I am wondering if we are going to have most of the Masters vs Masters matches have flashbacks to them. We have seen Appachi's, Shigure's, and now Sakaki. We know a bit about Ma, but we have yet to see his wife and the clan his clan has been at aggressions with. Then there is Akisame and the Elder himself.

Yes..and this is interesting , because Akisame was the best friend of Saiga...the son of the Elder...

Agaard x Apachai implies a slash coupling, not a fight.

To be honest, the Sakaki vs Hongo duel in the flashback is much more intense and emotionally fraught, especially since Hongo killed Suzuki in front of Sasaki. Yet we already know that both survived, so a retelling of that fight can't excite beyond a point. The present-day encounter feels meh, a postscript on a story that already ended sadly long ago, with nothing really at stake now.

Apachai against Agaard did a better job of balancing the flashback and present, because they never actually duked it out in the past. There was a whole reverse Darth Vader /Obi Wan Kenobi theme going on there - the young disciple finally mature enough to challenge his master. I still think it would have served better if Apachai had died there, especially since I don't see him in a serious master vs master fight again in the series. And I love Apachai.

Kenichi gets an eyeful and scores points. Could an important announcement mean a new anime?

Looks like that Yami might be trying to recruit Miu again.

I don't know about you but those Miu fanservice is getting annoying. And would be cool if there's a new anime.

I think it would be pretty funny if he does a 180 and the dude grabs Kenichi. Hell, I'd want Kenichi. He's busted his ass and look how far he's gotten in such a short amount of time compared to the others at his level...

Really enjoyed the chapter.
Spoiler for 444:


As for the special announcement, I am hoping for a least an OVA release with a volume as some of the other series have been doing.

anouncement huh? They certainly have more than enough material for a complete season like the last one. If it is then i'd say it's likely to end with the fght between Shou and Kenichi.

Renka is Hot..and perverted!because she is the daughter of The perverted Master!

Nice chapter...the fight is good! Hongo and Sakaki are really a monster!
Kenichi...You're looking very well ....to Miu heeee?hahahah

finally this...i hope the target of the Demon god and Mikumo, is Kenichi, and not Miu....both of them,have expressed interest in Kenichi,i don't know how they can take Kenichi or Miu, and make one of them a bad guy....however is interesting

For the announcement..if they make a secondserie of the anime.., i hope this time, the voices of the characters is different because i can't hear those of the first series..., and especially the animation must be changed...in a high level...for the fights...if really a second season of the anime happened...i can't wait to see Shigure Kousaka!!she is the one of my favorites girl character... shiugre Kousaka is the best!!

But for Miu or Kenichi to be kidnapped, they would deal with the Elder first. He did follow them in secret, right? So IF that "kidnapping" was planned from the get-go, they surely would have a (few) Yami master(s) on standby to distract the Elder. I'm sure otherwise, the Elder would raepstomp them should they dare to lay a finger on Miu/Kenichi (more so on the former of course).

If someone is kidnapped, please let it be Kenichi, that would be so much more interesting and unexpected, than the Damsel-in-distress storyline I dread we'll actually get.

I know that would be really cool especially if they manage to plant some darkness in him
