    I agree. I'm very disappointed in how it ended. It didn't make me think Oka was any better because the way it see it is that he just happened to fight the version of Nuri that was actually affected by physical attacks. If Tokyo asn't scared they could have taken that version of Nuri down.

    Well, it seems my "Nuri is on last life argument" was not that far fetched after all... still, I don't quite agree with Tousen - most of the damage done on Nuri, and the casualties (from what we have seen, all except dumbass are still kicking, and dumbass had a deathwish anyway) was by team Osaka - Nuri should be an Osaka Kill, even though Oka obviously had his work chewed out for him - that said, the picks are a bit sketchy, but IMHO, the suit does seem to do most of the work - like the Eaglehorn: a swift, true firing bow that almost aims itself ...

    Let's not be hasty, though.
    Nuri was already beheaded once, after all.

    Maybe it'll pull some sort of last attack and then it'll be finally finished by the next chapter (271)? I wouldn't complaint if that were to happen, although I don't really see a problem with things ending up the way they seem, it really feels like something is lacking... dunno, expected a bit more of a fight. The feeling is slightly the same as to how Kistune and Tengu were tough motherfuckers and then just died like that.

    Oh, people, don't forget to check the first page once in a while, there's one more pic now and as soon as the script come out, I'll edit it there too.

    ^ Definately agreed. Nuri will come back, just a head less won't hold him down.
    We just have to wait for the whole chapter comes out...

    I was thinkin' how long the Osaka Arc was going now, maybe only 45-50 minutes in the Manga reality? Wow, that had been long 1 1/2 years till this arc is finally over.

    I seriously doubt that. Nuri would have just used his psychic powers and ripped their limbs off like he did with the old man and Inaba.

    It's interesting that Oka's suit seems to be intact, and with Oka standing right in front of Nuri like that, most likely the suit is way more powerful than initially thought, I mean, it wasn't even disabled in any way (or at least not that we can tell from those images).

    I think the Tokyo team would've lost if they tried fighting Nuri. They could win if all six of them used their x-rifles from a safe distance, but if they were up against him with melee attacks, they'd be screwed. Now, if any of them had a h-gun or a y-gun then maybe they could have pulled it off. And certainly, if the rest of the Osakan team hadn't been slaughtered, they'd be able to defeat it easily (if all of them used their h-guns, based on how they handled that giant old medusa-like monster). The whole troublesome thing about Nuri was the earlier forms he took. Although its psychic abilities are a tough cookie, I don't think Oka would have had such an easy time if he was facing the deadly eye-beam or the woman multiplying form.

    Anyway, on a different topic, Oka seems quite the likeable fellow, huh? The other Osakans were pretty cold, Oka is at least good mooded enough to make jokes. And, if indeed what he said was true, maybe he'll indeed be Kurono like; not a complete nerd but not a helpless guy either, since coursing karate through correspondence (I'm still after the better term for it, if there really is one - know it in portuguese: "curso por correspondência") would be a bit strange if he were to be Kaze like or as much of a badass as NKG.

    Really, for as useless as Nishi has been for most of the mission I think he did the bulk of the damage to Nuri. Other than Kuwabara's jism attack I don't recall any Osakan attack having any effect.

    If this form of Nuri is purely offensive and doesn't have he regeneration of his other form then Nishi actually made himself useful to the team for once...if unintentionally.

    Is it just me or do the lines about ping pong and karate correspondence make Oka sound a little like a nerd? Oka might end up being just some regular salaryman or an otaku with intense fighting skills.

    ^ Well, there was Kyou's attack...

    Nuri was way more vulnerable then, otherwise he wouldn't allow himself to be used by Nerdo.

    And yup, definately sound like a nerdish guy, although judging from what he said, he must be a grown-up by now, which of course doesn't really make him less nerdish.
