    It would be nice if he got Natsume Aya but seeing as he probably won't sent shes apparently whipped by blondie. Masataka is one of the more normal characters and he seems pretty powerful to me anyways I think he will be in the end the one that will beat Nagi and I think the manga will shift to him in due time.

    ^ He's talking about Nagi. ANyways, I don't think it should shift to Masataka being the main character. Let him stay as the in-character, so-called narrator of the story. He's basically the only character that has been the most "stable" in the story so far.

    ^might wanna delete your double post amigo

    and its not so-called narrator he IS the narrator go back to the first couple chapters of the series it mentions his feelings for aya and how his heart went and then went onto more of pure narration

    and also i think masataka is friggen awesome because he's actually a normal teenager when it comes to emotional and mind lvl (ya hes mature too but that pervy shit hes got is norm teen whether it be guy or girl just girls know how to be discreet only added guy or girl part cuz im bored n feel like rambling lol)

    n bout the whole mastaka being the "true warrior" ya its possible it can happen but i still dont think thatll make him the strongest though

    n bout the mitsuomi carin bout his bro thing thats obvious he cares bout him a lot and the reason he dun watch when mastaka fights is cuz he has a lot of faith in him to win the fight so he doesnt see it as worth watchin when he fights cuz he believes mastakall win the fight

    n the comparison to mastaka n kenshin thing is s/he meant that they both don't have big ass egos even though theyre strong

    another reason mastaka isn't progressing much is cuz he isnt the main char hes a side char so OG so far dun see it fit to show it yet if he is

    the mastaka training harder than bob/nagi thing is complete bs none of them train any less than each other they just all train in diff ways and Nagi does train a helluva a lot and also learns new goodies in fights thats y he improves so much. Bob just flat out trains and Mastaka just flat out trains as well and prob practices techniques as well altho it dun show it as much cuz hes not the main char

    the whole mastaka hatin nagi thing its not as much of a hate as it is a jealousy and anger thing jealous he got aya mad he brings a lot of trouble n stole his "first love" n also couldnt be there for aya when she needed him and not even to mention the pain he puts her through he is pissed at that as well but i still dun think its hate

    n the relationship thing i see him getting w/ some girl that hasnt even been introduced yet and has a family w/ um

    n the possible final fight w/ nagi n mastaka thing IF it does happen its obvious he'll live from it i think at least cuz the fact hes the narrator of the story and tells it as past tense in the first few chapters saying how when he was in school etc etc. Personally i'd love to see another fight between these 2 not a "final fight" type thing though but just another fight cuz these 2 are both rly friggen cool in diff ways and it'd be a good fight as well Masataka fighting for a combo of trying to get aya to love him in a sense and cuz Nagi's prob possessed by sohaku at the time but id prefer it not be cuz then it could be much cooler n more emotional of a fight

    i also agree that mastaka is subtly getting hyped up slowly by OG lately cuz he might be plannin sumtin

    i apologize for my lack of grammar n puncutaion btw tired/bored/at school not a good combo for typin n worryin bout that stuff aint a good combo when im talkin on a forum

    Masataka is a really nice, caring kinda guy. He's pretty awesome with his nice guy attitude and techniques. I would say he's one of my favourite characters in Tenjou Tenge. First is probably Mitsoumi. Yep, can't beat the guy with awesome hair and who is like.... huge.

    Heh... serve's those people right for looking at my cookie!
    MWAHAHAHA! And no I don't wanna share..

    I'd have to say the three times I've read through this topic, I have been waiting for a non-bias non-idiot to post the real situation. It has taken FOREVER! A few people mentioned things that are entirely correct, but out of context. He may have had rather poor grammar but Iniquity had by far the most sound opinions and statements. Thank you oh Lord, thank your for showing me that our world is not full of nothing but character fanatics.
    ps. I'm also a fan of Masataka not for any specific reason, but for what he seems to be from the few situations that he is being paid attention to. You guys know what I mean? He doesn't show anything real spectacular, but it seems every once and a while we get one more little piece of who he is. He isn't growing, we're just getting to see more. I look forward to seeing what becomes of him.

    ^ Vissermatt, please give some examples of how every single one of these post are made by crazed fanatics of the character Masataka. Otherwise you'll just sound like a moron, which you already do, because you're talking about reading through this bloody ten-page thread, then talking about how you hate fanatics.
    The irony is strong with this one..

    People still post in this thread? I betcha if someone to create a thread called "Masataka ate a Twinkie" we would start hearing how eating twinkies makes him the true warrior and become the strongest in the world ever. Then take over dragon world and beat Goku at SSJ4. I hate all types of fanboys. That's why I hate myself.....damn Emo moment.

    Default Re: Who likes Masataka?

    I don't know how it happened, but it seems that you can't start a thread on ANY of the other characters in the show without some geek throwing Nagi into the picture. I'm simply going to state my opinions on the character of Masataka, and why I believe that over %70 of the posts in this thread were made by people who obviously either didn't read the manga/didn't pay attention to Masataka-exclusive scenes in the manga, or who are pole-jocking Nagi so hard that they fail to notice the strengths/improvements of other characters.

    First off, let me start by answering the original question of this thread: who likes Masataka? I can say whole heartedly that when I started reading this manga last year, Masataka quickly became my favorite character in the entire series. With Bunshichi placing a close second. My reasons for liking Masataka is that while he really is a strong character, he doesn't let his strength turn him into an egotistical jackass. Something which certainly cannot be said about your precious main character. He's a nice, caring guy with a pure heart, an intelligent mind, and a perverted side (to me he is more like Miroku than Kenshin).

    All in all, my number one reason for liking Masataka is that not only is he one of the more real characters in the series, in terms of personality, but he's more of an underdog than Nagi is. And all of you who praise Nagi while overlooking Masataka because you haven't so called "seen enough of his strength" are only proving my above point. I truly do think that he might possibly be The True Warrior, and I have several valid and undeniable reasons for this belief.

    For those of you who say that Nagi and Bob have worked harder than Masataka, that is complete bullshit. Sure they've both worked hard, and they have come a long way in their training, I'll give them that. But you have to remember that not only is Nagi (and to some extent Bob) the main character(s), but that when the series they started they were just bullies. They had no real fighting experience besides the average playground scuffle, which is why Nagi was so severely handicapped when he got to Toudou academy. Masataka however, has been training for quite some time, possibly since a young age seeing as not only does he come from a family whose history is rooted in the martial arts, but also because he has had to live in the shadows of people like his older brother Mitsuomi.

    Besides, who was it who actually had the most influence in Bob's training people? That's right, it was Masataka, which means that alot of Bob's gains have come directly from his training with Masataka. He hasn't yet been trained by Mitsuomi, who seems hell bent on having Bob join him, and the only training Maya has been putting Bob through is running. Which Mitsuomi himself has said is pointless, and that Maya doesn't know how exactly to train Bob properly. Nagi, for all of the gains he's had, needed the help of the twelve family heads to teach him how to ACTUALLY fight (the big burly guy who was showing how to throw a real punch ring any bells?) as well as Souhaku beefing him up with other Red feather powers, only two of which he stole accidentally.

    In this case, Masataka's growth and potential as a fighter is IMO greater than Nagi's in that he has had (as far as we've seen) no help in developing/mastering his own fighting skills. Everything Masataka has achieved he's done so on his own. So that thing about Nagi and Bob training harder than him, you can get out of my face with that. Because I would like to see anyone who believes that stand on one leg with a dozen water bottles full of water tied to their other leg and being held upright in the air for any lengthy period. Or even someone who believes that to try to stand one-legged on one end of a stick and hold that position, both of which are methods that Masataka has used in his training.

    Another thing that has been said is that Masataka wouldn't be able to fight anyone with demon powers. Again, this is a bogus statement made by someone who either hasn't paid attention to the series or simply wants to downplay his character in order to make their favorite character seem more "awesome". Masataka has shown in plenty of fights that he is strong enough to be considered a threat to any opponent. I've noticed people bringing up his confrontation with Mitsuomi in the bowling alley as a prime example of his "lack of strength" against people with demon powers. And one of the things you people seem to have forgotten is that both times Masataka was at a disadvantage. The first time being when Mitsuomi back-handed him out of the way. Masataka had clearly taken a blow that was probably meant for Bob, as Bob's cheek was cut by the sheer force of the blow. Not to mention the guy was still hurting from having his nuts zipped up mere moments before. You try taking any type of hit to the testes and see how you fair in a fight.

    And the second time Mitsuomi knocked him down was a BLATANT CHEAP SHOT, as Masataka was focused on finishing off the downed Kagurazaka (the fag who fights for Mistuomi) and wasn't even looking in Mitsuomi's direction. Nagi only lasted the distance with Mitsuomi in that bowling alley simply because he'd already gone through Bob and Masataka before hand. Nagi simply got lucky, pure and simple.

    And if this isn't enough to convince you people that Masataka is indeed reasonably strong enough to take on a red feather member, then I take a direct quote from someone who had ALL of the red feather powers before Nagi. A man by the name of Kagiroi Tetsuhito, said at that time to be the strongest member of F, stated to Masataka that he healed his shoulder as a thanks to God for giving him a worthy opponent to fight. And he even complimented Masataka on his strength to one of his comrades after watching his fight with Fuu Chien. A guy like that would not make those comments if he were not serious about them. Also, Fuu while not being a red feather, was clearly strong enough at that time to fight with Aya blow for blow (while she was using the Dragon's Eye); and even overpower her as he had her captive when he caught back up with Masataka and the newly freed Madoka.

    Hell, even respected fighters like Bunshichi have stated how strong Masataka actually is. Bunshichi himself said that Masataka was the type of opponent he would LEAST like to fight. And this is coming from a guy who went blow for blow with Shin!!! Even your precious Nagi has shown both a respect and fear of Masataka's strength, particularly in the last chapter where he told Masataka that his fight with him early on in the series was the first fight where he had actually been afraid for himself. So for those of you who believe Masataka isn't capable of taking on anyone with demon powers, I say go back and pay attention to the earlier volumes.

    As for Masataka not getting alot of serious injuries in a fight, I have news for all of you. The goal of ANY true martial artist, is to not get harmed as well as doing as little damage to the opponent as possible. This is what makes Masataka who he truly is IMO, a true martial artist. So it is unfair to compare him to Nagi, as Nagi has stated several times, he's simply a thug, NOT a martial artist. Besides, in order for Nagi to master that technique Maya was teaching him, she had to damn near starve him to death in order for him to even learn it. Otherwise it's a safe assumption that he would've never gotten it down by the time they got attacked in the bowling alley. Masataka actually uses technique and planning to defeat his opponent, while Nagi's method of fighting is simply "hit them until they fall down". And any planning he does during a fight is almost always spur of the moment, making Nagi's victories seem more like flukes than actually overwhelming the opponent. That's the difference between the two, and it's the classic difference between a Martial Artist and a Street Fighter. A classic example of this comparison would be Shinobu Sensui vs. Yusuke Urameshi in the manga/anime series Yu Yu Hakusho. And for anyone who doesn't know how that fight went, well Sensui held the upper hand throughout most of that fight, even after Yusuke had been able to awaken his demon blood. And he only lost to Yusuke when Yusuke's ancestor Raizen got indirectly involved.

    My final reason for believing that Masataka is quite possibly the True Warrior, aside from it being speculated quite a few times in the series so far, is that he (and Mitsuomi as well) are the direct living descendants of the original True Warrior - Susa. After all, the Takayanagi lineage was said in the manga to be directly descended from Susa, with the red feather families being either directly or indirectly linked to the Takayangi clan. In other words, the potential to be the True Warrior not only flows through Mitsuomi's veins, but Masataka's as well.

    There is one thing I will agree with though, I am hoping that O!G! does showcase a fight with Masataka facing an opponent who actually requires him to go all out, if only to shut up the nay-sayers who doubt this young man's potential and abilities. I'm also hoping they don't leave Bob out of the picture either, it would be nice to see something actually done with his character besides gratuitous sex scenes. Especially if Mitsuomi is able to "sharpen him into the finest blade in school" as he stated he could.
