Mitsuomi/Souhaku Ultimate plan
Souhaku's plan is simply to put all of the gates into Souichiro who has the Dragon's Fist and thus, can collect all of those gates into his body. From there, take over Souichiro's body and continue collecting all of the dragon gates until he becomes a God. Now, from what we know from Mitsuomi, he wants to supress red feather power altogether. So far:
- Two years ago, he asked Maya to join him after he told her about what he planned to do after obtaining the Takayanagi HQ. He asked her again back at the bowling alley.
- He asked Bob to join him back at the bowling alley.
- He wants elite martial artists to join him in his "war" against Red feather power.
- He treats Masataka badly, but it seems that he's also looking over him.
- Bunshichi said back in Fight 68 that Mitsuomi needed at least one more feather to complete his "true wing".
- Ishiyumi referenced Emi and Tagami as Mitsuomi's "Sword and Spear".
- He's using Kabane and Shojo, making them a part of his Enforcement Group.
- There needed to be a large quantity of Ki to be built up around the school. Although the people being controlled by Nokimi's bugs went crazy, they had no concern for those that weren't infected.
- The plan is from Ichiyou Nagi from 400 years ago.
- Dougen wants to place all of these red feather abilities, maybe in one person, and gain control over that person.
- They have a list of 22 people with "Power" that they want to use.
- Refering to Shojo's abilities, she can read and copy another person's Ki, taking on their physical features. It's not known whether or not she gains the person's special attacks automatically. According to the past Shojo family, they can also imprint the ki of one person onto another.
- Kabane's power allows him to flow his ki into objects and manipulate them, changing them into other objects. Although he only used this ability to create blades of various size and shape, armor, and a shield, it could be possible that they can create just about any object possible. Seeing as the only time the power has been seen was in battle where weapons were needed, it has yet to be proven true or false.
Trying to put what's there together plus other info I didn't put there, I came up with a little theory. Souhaku created a barrier with six points in six areas of Japan before recently expanding it more worldwide. In the center of these six points is one focal point, most likely where his true demon/warrior/god whatever you call it is. That person will then create a large resonance, exposing more abilities to be collected. I don't believe that the six areas will be the end of it. Once collecting the abilities within that "barrier", he will expand the barrier on a larger scale than the previous until all of the power is within him.
Mitsuomi knows that he will die pretty soon and wants to leave his plan onto those who will continue the fight in case he can't end it by the beginning of the first resonance. He wants to leave a strong image, someone who would lead his "True Warriors" in the war against Souhaku. With Mitsuiro's ability, anyone can become "Mitsuomi", however, Mitsuiro was only able to bring out about 80% of Mitsuomi's full power. There's no information about Mitsuiro's own fighting skills, but Mitsuomi could want someone with more skill to become this "Shadow Mitsuomi" in his place. A candidate could be Masataka, seeing why Mitsuomi wanting him to stay away from Souhaku and not wanting him to see what he did to Bunshichi. Masataka has a fighting style closer to Mitsuomi than anyone else. Another long stretch would be Bob, seeing as Mitsuomi mentioned Dance being the connection between God and the World. That, plus Bob's body is the closest to Mitsuomi's. Having Maya's body at HQ, he could also be creating his own "barrier", which neutralizes the resonance effect, halting Souhaku's plan. This is all just a theory of mine, but I would to know what everyone else has to say about it.
Hmm, very unique and interesting theory. I can see you've been doing your homework. I agree with you on several points that you brought up, mainly about Mitsuomi's and Souhaku's plans. What we do know is that it is quite clear who Souhaku has chosen as his "container", and that is his own son, Souichiro.
However, I think Masataka becoming Mitsuomi's "shadow" after he dies would be more of a stretch than someone like Bob. Masataka already blames Mitsuomi for all of the things that have happened in the school. Why would he possibly want to follow in his brother's footsteps? After all, the main reason he joined the Jyuken is to stop his brother, not assist him in his plans.
I could definitely see Bob being a candidate to "fill in" for Mitsuomi when he's no longer around. Aside from the fact that Mitsuomi has displayed, several times, a very strong confidence in Bob's latent skills; we could also look at the fact that lately Bob has been sort acting weird in Mitsuomi's presence.
Such as when they all went to see Maya in the hospital, remember the look on his face? And also the fact that Mitsuomi did issue him a second invitation to join him and become his new "wing" when he was discussing the Enforcement Group's lineup in the election tournament.
So all in all, yeah, I think you're on to something.
Forgot about the whole hospital scene and the expression on Bob's face. Now that I think about it, back at the bowling alley, the juken club each fought a person on the enforcement group's original roster: Souichiro/Sagara, Aya/Tagami, Masataka/Kagurazaka, Maya/Emi, and Bob/Mitsuomi. It seemed like Mitsuomi wanted to separate the juken club so each one could be handled differently. He wanted to stop Souichiro and Aya before they could activate their red feather abilities and wanted Maya and Masataka out of the way because he already knew their fighting skills. Bob was basically the only one who was an enigma to him. Every fight that Bob has had until now has either been with Mitsuomi or Mitsuomi was watching him from afar. I don't think that Bob is just going to stay in the position that he's in now.
With Dougen's plan, he wants to control the True Warrior and use him to regain power. From the way he's been talking about this True Warrior, it seems like he think it's going to be Souichiro. It would explain why he was willing to train Souichiro way back then and didn't care if Nokimi used her bugs on the students. Increasing the ki of the students could make it easier for those with special powers to awaken them. I don't know how he plans to control this true warrior once he awakens though.
As far as Masataka's role, I see him more as the person who will change fate by 'smashing the gears of fate' but because of that, there won't be a repeat of the past.

Mitsuomi's plan is different from Souhaku's. you can say that Mitsuomi wants to eradicate all red feathers form the face of the earth while Souhaku wants to awake all dormant red feathers. Dougen(mitsuomi's father)' s plan is the same as Souhaku except that he wants his family(flyin phoenix) to control the ultimate warrior.
he got quite i theory and maybe it could happen^^ about mistuomi and shohaku i can say is they are both different in perspective i agree with xxDoLLarBiLLxx mitsuomi want to eradicate the red feather while shohaku want to awake red feathers to be dominant againt the white feather and the only one missing is the one that will stand between those two group
Eradicating all Red Feather power is more like a statement than an Idea. I was saying how was Mitsuomi going to eradicate all the Red Feather power. Putting all of that power into one person (Souichiro), he would need someway of stopping that. That's why he needs Mitsuiro to copy his skills and abilities since he would have the best chance of defeating all of that power. However, with his heart condition, he can't do it. Therefore, he needs Mitsuiro or someone else to continue on as him and defeat the red feathers all in one body.
Mitsuomi has made it clear that he only considers the Enforcement group as the ones who will continue to fight when he is gone. Mitsuomi would definitely be the best candidate to take on someone with abilities of all the red feather powers (Souichiro) were it not for his over-worked heart. He also seems to believe that Bob will somehow eventually rally under his cause as well.
As for Souichiro being the true warrior, keep in mind that when Dougen started training him, Souichiro hadn't even awakened his families power, the dragon's fist, yet. So while Dougen may have been more accepting to the idea of participating in the training of Nagi's abilities, he doesn't seem to care much for it at this point in the story now. But rather he seems to be working WITH Mitsuomi in developing the true warrior, who would be able to stand against the true demon and other people with red feather abilities.
Their most dangerous, and thus most notable, adversary would be Souhaku, whose presence still lives in Souichiro. So Souichiro being the true warrior wouldn't make sense, because he is the opposite of what the true warrior is supposed to be. I still wonder that in all of this chaos, what is the Jyuken's purpose in all of this? It can't simply be to oppose the Enforcement group anymore. Especially when there's so much more going on now than a simple beef between two school factions.

Reason: Adding more info
Wasn't Dougen's plan to gather all of the red feather power into one person or gather all the red feathers under him so he could control them and build himself up again? I was reading fight 110 on page 24-25 where Dougen was talking about creating a mechanism for bringing out the True Warrior. Ichiyo's plan was to bring all of the red feather power into one person, which will make that person the "True Warrior" or "God" as Dogen called it, and then destroy it. From the last chapter, it looks like what happens AFTER the true warrior is awakened. Dogen may be working with Mitsuomi, but their goals are definetly different.
It didn't matter whether or not Nagi was able to use the Dragon Fist, He had the potential to use it because he was in the Nagi clan and he already learned how to use ki from Maya. I don't think Dogen stopped caring, but he knew that he would eventually have to go through other red feathers. As for Souhaku, him and Souichiro are still two different minds. They're just sharing one body.
I agree with you that the Enforcement Group and Jyuken Club have much bigger issues that the whole Shin revenge or whatever from two years ago, but it's not like they can just team up together to stop him. Mitsuomi and the rest of the Enforcement Group would be willing to kill Souichiro to stop Souhaku, even though Mitsuomi knows the only way they can bring back Maya is through Souhaku, while the Jyuken club wouldn't do that. I don't see anyone beating Nagi right now one on one, not even Masataka, especially now that it looks like he mistakenly put himself in the wheel of fate after last chapter. The only thing I could think of is Aya and Souichiro's mental connection that could somehow stop Souhaku from taking over or Maya's Ameterasu gate.
The only obstruction to Souhaku's plan is Maya's amaterasu gate and Aya's dragon eye. But i also don't think that Souichirou will let his father take control over his body. I think him submitting souhaku's blood to his will is key to him becoming the True Warrior because i believe he will awaken once nagi Opens all the gates at once. His mother couldnt handle it because her body was strong enough which is why i think He moved on to his son.
After the recent chapters, what if Mitsuiro was able to copy the ki of Souichiro and implant it onto Mitsuomi's body? Her ancestor was able to transfer other people's exterior and abilities with their power, what if she could do the same and transfer all of that onto one person? Two of the most powerful, if not, THE two most powerful people in the series in one form just goes way over 9000.
