And that's ignoring characters with inherantly broken non desperado power sets like amane and yudai (who can now kill desperados in a single blow), or ones who are basically knocking on the desperado door like the principal and ouma.

This is like saying a double digit amount of nukes isn't a lot.
Even if we only see hundreds of people with Blazer powers, the fact remains there are millions of them around the world. The story could only show a small percentage of people but because it focuses on Ikki and Stella who are now near the top in the world that all 10-20 Desperados in the world are shown or mentioned. It may seem a lot from readerís perspective but itís little from the perspective of someone in Rakudaiís world.

You're missing the forest for the trees

No one is saying the actual physical number of them isn't a fraction of the population. What is being said is that given how powerful they are relative to everyone else to the point that it's not even comparable, the growing number of them is a lot regardless of the perspective.

Kaieda has shown that heís capable of defeating a single Abraham Carter clone. He was ranked somewhere below 12th in the A-League so it can be assumed the A-League has around 20 people of at least his level. The number of people worldwide who are at least around Kaiedaís level could reach 50 or more. Ikki should be around this level when he first became a Desperado.

A-League participants are representatives from many countries and some countries like Japan has more than one representative. Kaieda who was ranked below 12th was considered very accomplished in the A-League so the number A-League participants could reach 100. The number of people worldwide who are at least on the level of A-League participants should be hundreds. Ouma without pseudo-mana should be around the level of average A-League participant.

Touka is on the level where she is stronger than most participants in Japanís National League but she is not A-League level yet. There are 50-100 B-rank or above mage-knights in Japan, and including lower ranked knights who are about as strong the number could double. About 15 named characters in Japan are around Toukaís level or stronger. So the number of people in Japan who are around Toukaís level or stronger could reach 50 or more, and worldwide the number could reach thousands.

So to summarize, there could be thousands of non-Deserados worldwide who are around Toukaís level or stronger, with hundreds of them around Oumaís level or stronger, and tens of them capable of defeating the weakest Desperados. If there are these many strong non-Desperados then Iíd say 10-20 Desperados are still reasonable. Also, the number of people that became Desperados since the start of the series is just 3 and there are also that die during the series.

It is possible that Ikki will further evolve as Desparado in concept in the final part of the series. Hence what I said before that Ikki is the definition of what a Desparado is. Looking forward in see how much more absurd Ikki will get. It better be worth it.

The abraham clones are basically mass produced desperados that aren't actually desperado tier on their own, and each one is inconsistent in overall ability from each other. the professor saying that their combined might is their true strength basically confirms this. Using them as a benchmark to say there are plenty of strong non desperados that can challenge desperados 1v1 is flawed, and goes against the entire point of the team up against tendou.

Saying only 3 people become desperados during the series is meaningless when a bunch of desperados are introduced as such/present/named in the series to begin with. frankly this discussion is just a never ending series of pivoting away from the point so i'll just bow out now.

I think he was asking for JP release, but the issues with Sol Press are certainly disheartening...

So that's why there's been no English releases since volume 5. I hope another company picks this series up.

There is already a date for the next volume of his other series, so he is alive and working, but unfortunately nothing new about this one yet.

I just hope the author end this series well worth. I’ve grow tired with rushed endings and ones that could of been better.
