    Default Bob's Rhythm related to Zanshin?

    That fight against Madoka and went into that state of mind where it just turned white and he reacted to her attack naturally- it seemed like that Zanshin/Mushin/Shoshin/Fudoshin concept in Buddhism where you don't have a single thought in your mind but you just follow your intuition.....A martial arts master goes into this state and he doesn't need anything else. Of course Bob was thinking too much and lost a lot of blood during the fight with Madoka before he first started using his rhythm, but I just found it interesting. Not trying to say that he's going to be some uber fighter, but maybe he should get more recognition for his potential instead of his penis.
    They explain more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushin or here: http://www.fightingarts.com/reading/article.php?id=62

    yo, i just followed your link and i must agree. In my opinion Bob definitely has more potential than anybody else in the manga. Just from all of the weight training and his natural ability of the dance he was able to make it so far. So he definitely has the potential to get his zanshin on (which seems oddly reminiscent of mitsuomi's mukuken(fist of nothingness) but as of now he just has really good instincts, but i definitely agree with the potential aspect of it. In all honesty if anybody has to stop souichirou whenever sohaku takes over i hope that its bob.
