-nike gauges kazu's battle level at around 200-250 (that's a huge jump since the sleipnir battle of 89)
-kazu recites something from the poetic edda, this surprises nike as he wonders how kazu knew that. kazu continues reciting the poem andd vanishes just as nike becomes more certain that kazu had opened 'that door'
-nike uses the gem regalia to track kazu who has gone into 'stealth mode' via his speed. as nike makes his attack, he realizes that in the span of 2 seconds, kazu had managed to use a thorn trick to break nike's barrier, a rumble trick to absorb the energy in nike's gem vibrations, then finally a flame trick using the absorbed energy to attack nike. hence the 'melty' look of nike's regalia shown before the slow replay.
in some wierd flashback, spitfire is explaining the true 'strength' of the flame regalia. kazu sees a lot of people he knows in capsules (including himself) to which spitfire explains that they are parts of the memory data file. there's some explanation about how the sano corp. did research in making the 8 roads and kings into one. finally he mentions how flame is the beginning of everything.
the exact portions of what kazu did are explained in detail, and we see that after kazu does the 'aettir' trick, he momentarily is wide open for a counter and gets kicked by nike... now we are back to where we left off.
as nike starts to feel the attack kazu did, kazu states how he won't lose to someone who has nothing and no friends.
It's nice to see OG decide after 300 chapters to not shit all over Kazu.
His ability to copy tricks from different roads is impressive. Too bad nobody in the manga is around to see Kazu pulling this shit off. They were impressed that Ikki could stop, they'd be shitting their pants to see Kazu pull off this shit.
well, i think it stands testiment in and of itself just seeing a 'defeated' nike.
Id never thought Id be saying this about Kazu in the manga...but OG has given Kazu some pretty broken abilities. When it
rainsburns it poursscorches eh?
Also retcon? Flame is the beginning of everything? Or was it wind? lol
Like I said before, Kazu is a beast.Very nice.
Also, LMAO at Nike insulting Kazu's intelligence. Is it so impossible for him to know something from the Poetic Edda?
So is the door the stopper that Kazu had regarding his self-confidence? And if Flame Road can produce tricks from everything, what can the Storm dude?
Well Kazu did do the lens/mirage variant that Wind King did with his flames/heated air, which made sense at the time. I'll need more explanation on how he mimicked sonia and rumble road properties though.

I'm sure Ikki is going to be all kinds of haxx. His regalia is going to incorporate the capabilities of wind, rumble, and thunder road. Wind allows him to create shields, change direction in midair, and shoot highly destructive projectiles. Rumble can be used as defense and offense by absorbing energy from attacks and using that energy to make Ikki's attacks stronger and thunder road...
I forget what that does
Still Ikki is going to be all kinds of haxx.
