The reality is if Nami uses any of her abilities, she's going to win. Mirage is going to allow her to setup to do as she pleases, and her quick gust attack would give her the opportunity to activate her more powerful thunder attacks. Without any doubt Nami has the firepower to take down Kumadori. If she activates her Mirage, or gets her rod between her own body and Kumadori, she wins. Kumadori doesn't have the ability to stop her. To win, he would be required to end her before she lifts her Clima-tact. That just isn't going to happen.
The idea that Nami's role is that of a Navigator, and that as such she's only capable of handling useless fodder, isn't one that I accept. And even someone that does believe that has to accept the reality that the definition of fodder is relative. Fodder of the NW and fodder of Paradise are completely different. Early on CP9 were the big guns, now they just cannot compete. I'd argue that Kumadori is fodder, at least for the SHs as they are now.
You can imagine Nami setting up all kinds of preparations and attacks, but if she's even a second too slow, it's over. Kumadori never hesitated when he fought Nami and she was really close to dying. Someone who is super fast and super strong is tough enemy for Nami, any day. Sure, you might argue that Kalifa was also stronger, but that was plot induced stupidity.
I feel like every member of the crew is being overhpyed here. Nami has nice attacks, but she's not really suited for close combat. She doesn't have strength or speed to fight a Rokushiki master.
Well, Nami will be speedblitzed before she can perform any of her moves. It's obvious. Her moves aren't like computer or car's engine where you only need to push the button. Her techs need time to accumulate power and then release it. Even her mirage tech needs time and Kumadori just won't give her any time with his Soru. She never showed anything that can suggest that she can evade Soru.
Also comparing Chopper's performance against Kumadopri with her's is a very inpropriate as Chopper has way better physical capabilities than she had or has.
And I'm not saying that she has the same physical capabilities as Chopper, I'm showing that Kumadori's power isn't overwhelming. He isn't speedblitzing anyone. You're overestimating the speed of Kumadori's Soru, and his power as a whole. And you're underestimating Nami. That's it.
Well, Chopper is a fighter, while Nami isn't, so comparing those two and saying that if Kumadori didn't overwelm Chopper, thus he won't overwelm Nami isn't right. Pre-timeskip Nami was way way weaker compared to Chopper, so I don't think we should compare Chopper's performance against Kumadori to Namis battle here.
Also about techs that don't need time... They do need time. Not as much as her strongest moves, but it would be enough for Kumadori to perform Soru and get in a close range with Nami and then she is doomed, because she will need just one Shigan to be incapasitated and then he will butcher her.
46 to 15 to Nami?
Sounds like a bad joke. On woters, lol.
Nobody believes in hair nowadays...
Well, it seems mostly like one of the best trolls of the current Tournament.
Nami never showed anything to be able to win against the likes of Kumadori. Her attacks never had as much effect as Enel's attacks have, thus I don't get how her attacks can take serious opponents who aren't screwing around and go for the straight kill. She would have already been several times dead if not for plot issues.
Well, the only thing why she won against Kalifa was plot induced stupidity, because Kalifa didn't even need to use her new DF. She should have just speedblitz her and use one or two Shigans two give her an underworld trip...
Also, you make it sound as if Kumadori is smarter thann Kalifa... That guy is worse
Well, the difference is still there. If Kalifa used Rokushiki from the start Nami wouldn't have any time to prepare her techniques since Nami's speed is way lower compared to Kalifa's. I still see that victory as mostly plot-induced.
Also to endure one Shigan or to be speedblitzed from the start and endure from five to infinity is an absolutely different thing and I doubt Nami can even pull it right now after timeskip.
And about Kumadori... Of course he isn't smarter than Kalifa, but he is considerably better as Rokushiki user and that really counts here as the easiest way to take Nami down is to speedblitz her from the start and get her several wounds fast to practically immobilize her and then she is done.
There are still people doubting that Nami would wipe the floor with Kumadori?
That guy was so lame!
Even old Nami would have a chance against him.
And she's way stronger than she was before the timeskip!
Hah, pre-skip. That's funny.
