So now a war begins...did not see that coming. Although I wasnt a fan of the demon fist am a bit sad he went out that way. Really wanted to see more from him against other opponents. oh yea I love how the god fist walked out like a boss stating his business here was done only to stumble lower down...lol
I want to see more disciple fights from now on I think all these master fights are growing a bit excessive. I mean this was the longest HSDK fight to date smh.
OK, so now that the worst fight in the history of Kenichi is over we can move on to something less aggravating. I would just have to point out that the 'Victory is Mine' followed by his immediate rapid flight away from Jenezad removed any credibility Akira had managed to hold onto after the fight. I still don't understand how, arguably, the most fascinating master villain could be taken out by such an irrelevant and rather uninteresting character through the use of such ridiculous plot devices. But, I can still hope Akira gets killed in the next few chapters. Obviously, I'm a little bitter about the outcome of the fight because that outcome seems seriously unlikely at this point. I can only hope that Akira is relegated to the shadows for a long time, his appearance will likely only serve to annoy me.
Now maybe we can see some real action in the next few chapters, maybe from the main character who has, for some reason, been watching some random dude fight for what seems like a year.
Well... I ate my words for nothing but no one would have predicted Akira's victory given the circumstances.
This is the end not only for a great warrior but for Silat's supreme style. We will remember it.
Silcardo learned the hard way what we (Akira included) know from "The good, the bad and the ugly":
"When you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk" or "When you have to kill, kill, don't play".
They took Silcardo's death better than expected, huh.
Sakaki, you shameless tsundere: "I... It's not like I want to help you or something... I just want to stay here okay!? Hongou no baka!"
An army, so what? Sakaki is at full health.
Now that Akira must remain with them for a while, will he think about his position?

You're just forgeting the fact that Jenezehad was presented to us as an extremely veteran fighter, who had a lot fight experience, how would he let a fighter surprising him not once, but twice? And please, also let's not forget that Akira was without mobility (oh I forgot, in mangas like this, even dislocate your own body doesnt affect you a thing, even after a statement made by another veteran fighter that it would somewhat cripple Akira, I mean, if you are destined to win by author's writing) . Please, don't buy a random power up legitimated by as well random flash back and cheesy dialogues, the only fact here is the fight sucked, for the simple reason that brought to us a cheap logic to justify a cheap ending.
By the way, just look at the first fights of this manga, when masters didn't blow up mountains. Ah, the dbz disease, I really thought that HDSK would be free from this curse , but as Bleach, Naruto and other "profiting franchises", logic (and when I say logic, the logic that was presented to us at the beggining of a manga, how its "world" operates) was underrated.
Oh, sorry about my grammar.
They just hear what they want to hear and disregard everything else. It is like talking to a wall.
Akira's condition was better than Apachai's when fighting Agaard, Silcardo was close so Akira just resorted to his moves (killing moves all of them). Fixing dislocated limbs is not such a great feat, Heero Yuy did that long ago and much other characters that were way weaker in power than the characters from this manga.

sakaki: "he crawled all the way up here with his body in that state? as expected of my disciple" How is that even impressive miu basically just jumped the whole building lol. Stuff like that annoys me. Or another example when ken was fighting kokin and koukin could of basically killed him right off the bat if it wasnt for kens phone ringing. Like dude how long can ken be bad at such simple things like 'preparing for battle' or 'stoping a fatal attack at the beginning of the match' you'd think those would be the basic of basics in disciple school. I dunno idc about the rest of this arc but matsuena better come up with some good ken development next arc or im going to find his twitter page and write very harsh things lol.
Also i get why jenezads servants are bowing but how come rona and her posse are aswell? lol

Gaidars loss was an honour loss, he did his best attack and ended up passing out in front of a master, if Akisame was satsujinken he woulda been dead.
This civil war pop-up isn't really suspenseful, Sakaki is still 100%, & they got the princess with the ridiculous royal attire to make a country-saving speech. After which I sincerely hope we never see Tidat again.
Yeah the fights over and the distasteful ending makes me wanna see stuff that comforts, like kawaii Chikage, and crazy people like Sieg again. Tidats army is not doing anything for me at all, maybe this is a way to imprison Jenazads fanatics so there's no plot holes, when we leave this place?
Just before the Sakaki-Akira fight, it was The Bewitching Fist who suggested Jenazad take Miu for a disciple (the underwater meditation scene). That never made sense to me. Yami doesn't seem like the sharing type of group maybe she planned on Jenazads death or at least injury? Either way let's go back to Japan!
You talk about bruises but they are all subjective as you can't tell how great the damage is, that kind of thing is unreliable but the author uses it for shock value. They may look gruesome but in manga this kind of damage remains unreliable and counts only as external unless a character states that it was internal damage. It will probably be stated when they treat Akira's wounds.
Now let's stop with the "I think/It looks like/It should be" and go to the facts: a hole through the body equals death.
He did not became stronger, he repeated his best and last attack. Being close and two hands was all he needed to execute it. Akira's vital organs were fine and after the adrenaline rush he fell. Your bone to pick is with the end of chapter 474, a character clinging to life is unheard of... is this your first manga by any chance?
