Gotta love how Brandnewkid reads what he wants to read and takes things I say out of context, PLUS puts words in my mouth.
Actually, it is. Keep reading the context of my post and maybe it will come to you.Quote:
If you read my post, you would see me saying Sanada's strength would be his counter to BIG BANG. Kite being an expert in martial arts has NOTHING to do with ANYTHING I said, which scares me. I don't know how you found that in the text.Quote:
Worried about what? If you mean worried that gimp Tezuka would lose, yes. If you mean worried about TRUE Tezuka losing, HELL NO.Quote:
This is the problem right here. Put words in my mouth.Quote:
Oshitari almost lost to Momo. Case closed.Quote:
Oshitari can close his mind, so Momo's ability to read him is neutralized. Atobe however does no such thing as reading his opponents with Insight in that same sense, he actually looks for physical traits, something that's impossible for Oshitari to conceal to our knowledge.Quote:
In order to counter KnS, you need a combination of extraordinary speed, field of vision, flexibility and reaction time, none of which is increased by closing your mind (I guess you could argue flexibility in a way, but it's iffy imo).
Momo's insight is what I named "Calm Insight" and Atobe's is just "Insight". I reckon using "Calm Insight" for future reference to Momo's can prevent confusion.
Or, in the words of our friendly translator for one chapter of PoT, "Freaky Weatherman Momo."

How did this go unnoticed??
Tachibana/Chitose, Shishido/Ootori, Niou/Yagyuu, Shiraishi/Oshitari. K all canon powerful pairs.
INUI/YANAGI FFS LOL. Seriously think before you type lol.

Ive got to say, Atobe > Kite and Atobe > Marui arent really discussions.
And they dont really belong in this thread, but it could Marui could have been solved with Atobe using AK and that Marui cant reply to it.
And that Atobe has AK against Kite, and that teleporting cant really save you from AK, just the fact that Mouri had to dislocate his arm, shows that you honestly cant move against AK.
This shitstorm wasnt needed.
Difficult to prove? No it isn't lol. Big Bang is old news x10. Sanada could return that crap with his left hand, and blind folded. I'm sure you would have no problems with saying Yukimura could do the same thing. In terms of base skill (ie: no yips), Sanada and Yukimura are virtually identical. If anything, Yukimura would have more technique, and Sanada would have more power, which doesn't really change much at all. To say that Yukimura could easily return Big Bang (which he can, and has), then Sanada could also, without needing to use Rai. I mean come on, even Echizen returned it by simply jumping backwards, and he is a weakling.Originally Posted by Airgrimes
Tachibana/Chitose? We have already seen them playing, nothing special.
Shishido/Ootori? Really? They are good, but they are actually in a lower level without any doubt.
Niou/Yagyuu? Niou + anyone is a great pair...
Shiraishi/Oshitari? I don´t remember the last time I saw them playing a canon match, I think never...
Data Pair is strong though...
I think Tachibana/Chitose will eventually become one of the best pairs. The whole secret synchro thing that Konomi did makes it sound like there will be more of them in the future.
They have been hyped up for a reason.
Im certain there were complications in their loss to Washio/Suzuki.
And its not if anything, Yukimura was handed the what could possibly be still, amongst the highest levels of technique in the whole camp, all because Konomi completely overpowered him as a final boss.
It only just hit me how overpowered he is. For somebody who spent from the Districts to the Regionals in a hospital bed at that too.
Sanada having more power is totally legit. He puts holes through rackets.
