What an absolute idiot you must be to think you know more than Konomi on his own manga. Your fanboyism is beyond laughable.
Yips being activated or not is actually relevant. Its an ability which is what we already agreed. Its already been stated its an ability here.
And we were saying whether Yukimura yipped Sanada or not doesnt prove he WAS serious. There is evidence to suggest he wasnt serious and evidence to suggest he was.
But let me guess, whilst others on the forum have acknowledged both sides having evidence you ALONE believe there is no evidence right?
(Your not a fanboy at all)
You ignorantly argued about Yips without even knowing how it worked lol.
Words to degrade him? They are just CHARACTERS not real ppl bro.
I said he looked pathetic, big deal, you have used words to degrade Fuji, Yukimura and many others, it doesnt make you look like a moron whenever you do it.
You two (Fayte and Airgrimes), calm down with the arguing a bit. I've always been fine with argument since it spurs conversation and debate. However, please keep it civil with the back and forth idiot and fanboy comments.
But, Yukimura would've probably said so, right? Not necessarily. After all, Yukimura did suffer from the Yips before, in the original PoT, IIRC. That, or Konomi wouldn't want to spoil it.
Why would Sanada cause the Yips just because he broke out of it, and not Echizen when he freed himself during the final Rikkai match? That was because Echizen induced PoP, so it was understandable. But, for Sanada to get out the Yips completely on his own could've been a total shock to Yukimura's system.
I don't feel like getting to technical, but please consider the possibility that Sanada may not be able to use the Yips, possibly in a different manner than Yukimura. If Yukimura's Yips is caused by Yukimura's presence, the so-called "World of Yukimura," then Sanada's may be caused by Sanada's presence, the "World of Sanada." The fact that Sanada is able to invoke the Black Aura outside of a tennis match (when the BJB returned) may also be proof of this.
Yukimura's Yips are also present in his daily life. He yipped Inoue, the reporter, while speaking to him. Yukimura's presence makes you feel like that. I think BA yips you in a way because the fear it strikes into you.
As it's a very scary aura, and possibly gives you that fear, you're unable to move and can't react to the shots. Sure Yukimura was in a shock when that happened: "for a moment, Yukimura couldn't believe what he saw, that BA that engulfed Sanada and the sudden fear that went through his mind". Yukimura was scared as hell, he didn't expect that to happen and he knew he had to finish the match quickly to be ready if that Aura came again.
Maybe BA "yips" you in a way that you can't move due to the fear it strikes into you. Again, is just a theory, we can't really imagine what that aura possibly is.
Yukimura wasnt yipped though. He could see, hear and feel perfectly. Remember he was staring around in disbelief thinking ''what was that?'' just like against Ryoma.

Sanada's Speed and Power stats lifted extremely beyond a level that Yukimura could keep yipped and that's all we've been shown. Nothing you wrote supports Sanada being able to produce the Yips effect.
The reason those HSers were shitting themselves is coz they realized that Sanada w/ BA was beastly but not a situation where they were yipped, frozen unable to move or something like Yips.
Its not even Sanada's style to completely intimidate. He invites the opponent head-on and overwhelms them completely (from what we've been shown).
To say that Sanada's shot was just a normal shot is very unlikely however, considering it tore through the cage. For that reason Im assuming his power stat lifted. His power was so high that Yips no longer had him locked down enabling him to rally with Yukimura easily now without being pushed back at all.
Sanada's style is not to invite the opponent head-on, but to challenge them head-on at their own game. If he's playing against an aggressive player, he'll get aggressive; if he's playing against a defensive player, he'll get defensive. If he's playing against a player who is willing to put everything on the line, then he will also put everything on the line, as shown in his game against Tezuka where he put the well-being of his knees on the table to match Tezuka's elbow. He's an even more extreme all-rounder than Echizen and Yukimura. And this, is all for the sake of victory and complete domination. Sanada's all about intimidation, ever since his, and Rikkai's, first appearance.
A) Yukimura would have returned it
B) It wouldn't have cut Yukimura's headband
C) It wouldn't have broken the fence
D) It wouldn't have caused "fear."
Konomi doesn't break the law of newness. Whenever a character develops a new technique or aura, it will always raise their ability level.
