    Default Death of a character? *Spoiler chap 403*

    Anyone else blown that Appa is supposedly dead? He was my My second favorite master besides his elder and Muay Thai is wicked so it's Kenichi's loss.

    What do you guys think?

    I never thought any of Kenichi's masters would die, but given that he defeated his rival/former master in Yami, it could signify that he did what he ultimately wanted to do in his life and there is nothing left for him to pass onto Kenichi. However, Kenichi also died and came back to life and despite having a fist thrust through his torso, I can see Akisame and Ma finding a way to bring him back/heal him.

    ^about the comparison to kenichi, we knew that the masters were watching the fight anyway, so they were ready to help at any time.

    We dont see Ma or Akisame rushing to save Apachai this time......

    well dont get me wrong, I dont want him to die either, but it wouldn't necessarily a bad thing.

    I figured that one of his masters would have to die/taken out of commission(Elder if he fights his son).
    They cant win EVERY battle against Yami, and I'm glad that matsunea-sensei made that decision.....

    I agree that this adds a level of realism. Kenichi's sister will be sad. This will also mean that other characters might die if they face there nemesis. ma and his brother?

    Default It's alright to eat the Manjuu

    Apachai shows the true power of a death god. Sad, but fitting for the greatest heart in Ryōzanpaku.

    Yeah, and the latest chapter has Akisame bringing him back from near death like he did Kenichi. It's shounen. A character like Apachai never dies, or at least stays dead.

    First he died, than he moved to protect Kenichi and die again just to be saved by Akisame? Seems like the author can't make up his mind, maybe he got pressured by his editor due to fan mail that happens sometimes.

    The manga seems a bit too light-hearted for any of the main good guys to die anyway. I would've been quite surprised if Apa had actually died.

    ^ugh. at the very least, I dont want him to come back to %100 after this fight. If nothing ever happens to the ryouzanpaku masters, or any of the good guys....then it would remind me of a certain OTHER manga....who's good guys NEVER die, no matter what kinda damage they incur.....

    Well, the way I see it, HSDK isn't even trying to take itself seriously, or have some sort of "darker approach" in its content. Bleach tried and failed utterly...
