I want to see Ikki doing what Ringo just did, though, too. Would look pretty good. I want to see him using a Wing Road and Gaia Road combo Trick, too. Like, that one tornado-type Trick we saw Kilik and Sora use together in the Inorganic Net battle. Using Flames, Fangs, Rumble, Thunder, and maybe also Thorns and "Sound" blades along with that would be badass, too. He could also create a huge thunder storm, complete with "rumbling" (read: Rumble Regalia, Over Road) winds and also actual Wing Road wind, Rising Road's "Thunder," and some Fang blades along with the wind and sound ones, plus the sand and "Thorns," (Gaia Road's Gem and Sonia Road's thorny vines, respectively), could be a pretty good Trick, too. Or just the Over, Wing, Rising, Gaia, and Bloody Roads into one giant stormy Trick. Add Flames to make it burn. There are lots of possibilities.
[I messed up on quoting Minami, though, it seems; isn't what he says actually, "I didn't design it for this"? "It" being the Storm Regalia. He doesn't seem to be talking about having planned this whole thing but still having failed to predict these particular events.]
This is where you can post all the spoilers for the next chapter of Air Gear!

Oh please tell me Minami is dead.
Minami still needs to spill the beans on Ikki.
Yeah, I agree. Minami shouldn't die before he reveals to us who/what Ikki really is.
We need a proper translation!
That chapter was a beast! Really, OG is really unpredictable. Really.
So I think Ikki would be the one using the Sky Regalia. Holy SH**! Or I maybe wrong. Maybe Sora would get the Sky Regalia, and Ikki and company would be on a last ditch superb effort to win. But we don't know, OG is one hell of a troll, eh? Agree?
"The Regalia . . . The Storm's gonna swallow it all!!"
So, Dr. Minami realizes that Ikki's use of the Astral Magus wasn't intended to trap Sora's powers, but it was to create an outside wall of "Storm Energy" for Ringo to manipulate (Remember, Astral Magus / Null Wind operates on the principle that it is the center of a mega hurricane, where no wind blows; if it's the center, then obviously there must be an outside where the wind does exist, though it wasn't seen previously in the Slepnir battle). Rika is freed, the 9th Piece to the Rune Futhark is realized, and then we get this gem ...
"The Sky King? Lets be honest, we all know that's me, so ..."
Ikki gains control over all the world's technology, I believe. The Doc goes insane, saying Ikki can't be the Sky King because that's Sora's role. Shit gets real, I think Dr. Minami dies, (Seriously, what's this guy really about?) and it seems as if the earth is about to enter a zero-gravity shift.
The chapter ends with Ikki saying: "A'ight, let's do this bro. Come see me, in the sky!!"
WTF? Don't we only have two chapters left? This battle should have been wrapped up by now.
So Minami dies?! Before revealing the secrets about Ikki?! I really want to know, so OG'd better tell us sometime. Somehow.
Interesting chapter otherwise, though, it seems.
