Okay, so Dougen doesn't want Masataka to have anything to do with Mitsuomi. What I'm saying is, even if he didn't have anything to do with being a Takayanagi at all, like his last name was Smith or something, do you think that he would be the type of person that would have that pleasure to fight. Yeah, Soichirou is a part of the Red Feathers but even before he realized that he was connected to the Takayanagi's, he was just one of those people that like getting hit in the face if it makes him stronger (and this is coming from a person that can't stand him). The same thing goes for Bob.
Well takayanagi doesnt like to fight...he likes the aspect of Martial Arts and fights when he needs to. I mean he didnt fight Souchirou until he got really mad. I still think he would be into Martial Arts even if he wasnt a takayanagi...he might not be part of the junken club but thats another story
Omg... Masataka is DEFINITELY not weak. Taking on Nagi, well, that was easy. All Souichirou has is mouth. Well, up until the most recent volumes. D= I guess getting your eye poked out does that.
Anyway, I love Masataka...the Closet-Pervert. He's the only character who hasn't changed appearance wise and he's the only down-to-earth character, I guess you could say.
I just hope there's more focus on Masataka and even Bob in upcoming volumes.
he is strong but... i dont think hes face matches he's strenght..:P
ok, so here's my new ranking (keeping this in mind, these are the ppl we've seen fight only...otherwise i'd put like bunshichi (sp?) on the list.)
3. aya w/ ryuugan and rieki & masataka
Actually, I would put it more like this:
1.Soichirou (Demon Exorcist mode only. Water Bullets, Green Belt Thousand Tatami mat crossing imperial deer kick, Dragon Claws, Dragon Fist, Thunderous Lightning Arrow Strike, puls whatever he got from Kabuto and all the other "spare ribs" he's been "fed" up till now.
2. Aya with DE and Reiki
3. Masataka (the reason I put him down here is because I still don't see that much from him besides different Ki techniques mixed with his Kenpo. I
4. Bob and Madoka (why I put Bob in the same rank as Madoka is because even though he was losing blood during that fight, Bob might've been able to defeat Madoka. He was still standing before Masataka came).
5.Mitsuomi (the dude has a respirator and in a wheelchair. I doubt he would be a match for anyone in the Jyuken club right now)
6. Maya (chick is brain dead right now. Not much you can do once the electrode in your brain is fried).
personally i think at the top is a three way tie between Souchirou, Aya and Masataka. I think masataka is better than all of them techniacally but without the powers itd be real hard for him. Souchiro's power will eat him if he uses it for too long, and along with Aya's too (thata a theory at least cus weve seen souchirous mom) They both have damaged bodies so they pretty much have to fight and finish it quickly.
Same thing with Mitsuomi, hes most likely the strongest but only up to what is it fifteen minutes?
then comes Bob (of course maya is also up there but as Hadou said...shes pretty messed up at the moment she not gonna be doin much for awhile) along with Madoka following up the list with i think everyone below that.
Anyways, I believe if Masataka does fight Nagi again, either way it will be a sad ending. If Masataka wins and with his hatred for Nagi and willing to become like his brother, ends up killing Nagi and the whole Wheel of Fate continues and I think that's the whole thing Maya and I think Mitsuomi in a way are trying to fight. If Nagi wins, Souhaku would probably take over and kill the potential "True Warrior".
Well Souhaku pndered it himself on whether the True Warrior is Masataka or not...so with Nagi defeating Masataka souhakus job is done.
