    I totally agree with your point on the length, it's reached a tedious length.
    Indeed, this has been the longest master fight or probably the longest fight period in the manga thus far even surpassing the length of Sakaki's fight with Akira. Kamikaze style almost fits the description keep in mind there is no guarantee Akira will be able to kill Jenezad in the next chapter but it's likely

    It'd be a total letdown if he manages to kill Jenezad. Seriously, Jenezad had so much hype, I don't think he'll lose just like that without fighting a master on a higher level. Anyway, next week is the conclusion, and I'm totally looking forward to the end of this fight.

    Re: HSDK 474 Discussion/475 Predictions

    A series of awesome chapters and then we have....this. I've never been a fan of deathbed power-ups, if Akira wins this it would rank among the most annoying power-ups in any manga to date. He is outclassed in every measure, is minutes away from death, and has already been given his get-up and risk it all for the win. Why is he alive? He isn't particularly important to the storyline, he isn't a major character of the manga, and based on the other comments there isn't exactly a throng of people cheering for him to win this one. So why has this battle gone on for so long? Akira is way beyond his past due date.

    Re: HSDK 474 Discussion/475 Predictions

    Cut the author some slack, this is HSDK's highest tier battle (it is like saying "maaaan... Whitebeard is old and sick and took so much damage already, why can't he just die?"). I think that from now on you should expect this kinds of battles and comebacks so get used to it. I also think that we should stop killing characters before they are officially dead, it's been 5 weeks already of "Akira died".

    It is only correct to call asspull when a character powers up with no indication that they were this sturdy or amazing. Akira is a lifetime karate user and genius with years of experience, sparring with other lifetime genius such as Sakaki on a daily basis with both mastering everything there is to it; he also surpasses Silcardo by a notable margin when it comes to get the best out of someone (he is the best disciple raiser with no contest). Selling his defeat very expensively is Akira's right.

    I am sure the author is aware of the difference with this 2 characters, but it will be fair if Akira manages to injure Silcardo. Silcardo's victory should not be on check, only he won't curbstomp it and I ate my words for nothing... we''ll see.

    Akira's relations with important events and characters gives him weight in the story. A character value increases with his connections to important things. That was a no brainer.

    Ha! Akira is good looking? he is macho but I never saw him as an adonis! and it looks like he was more katsujinken than Sakaki back then as he shielded the girls with no second thought while Sakaki called him reckless.

    So... if hongo won the tournament while injured do we assume that at that time he defeated sakaki.... while heavily injured?

    I still fail to comprehend how Akira is relevant to the future plot he had his spotlight like any other OSNF master now its time for him go plain and simple.

    There's no reason to cut the author slack when this fight should of ended chapters ago. Watching Akira get his ass handed to him chapter after chapter is by far from appealing. I don't see how you can condone a fight of this length...7 to 8 chapters?!? come on dude

    Nah

    They fought in different ranks(due to a weight difference i gues), so i supose they didnt meet eachother in this tournament and was both victorious.

    Most likely so..I mean they did fight over 200 times so yeah...Sakaki was heavily injured too though so that probably worked in Akira's favor
    They were fighting in different divisions it said in this chapter... lol and also i think akira would have to make ammends with sakaki and kenichi before he disapears from the plot if you didnt notice in the first spin off chapter regarding shou kano and hermit on the last page hermit says to kenichi give that earring to the god fist hes the oly one that could truly appreciate it so in other words matsuena was giving us a little hintthat obviously hongou will probably at least live through this ordeal whether he wins or not is a different story.

    I thought it was cool how sakaki was thinking in his head during the gun raid in his flashback both he and hongou were taught how to dodge bullets through the trajectory maybe thats another little hint of what kenichi may learn in the future.

    Whether he lives or dies I really don't care at this point the sooner this arc is over the better. These master class fights are cool, but I grow wearisome of them.

    I can't predict the future nor if he will be important latter, but regardless, he is far more important than your "Just die already!" Chilly Willy.

    Mikumo and Isshinsai's fights (maybe Sougetsu's too) will probably be long ones, will you be "just get over already!" like you are now? if so, put it in spoilers.

    The author stated that the battle will end next chapter. Getting angry at this point is like getting angry after you reach your destination with "when are we going to be there!?" it makes no sense.

    Whatever makes you happy, just don't throw another tantrum.
