If she were to die I expect him to drop martial arts; the only reason he's staying at Ryozanpaku is to learn martial arts to protect his loved ones aka Miu.

I dont believe she going to die, but she might snap and kill somebody, I could see that.
Wonder if Kensei is going to teach Rimi "Seidou Goui".
It's always good to see Mikumo, and Chikage. Waiting to see what some of the Alliance members are capable of, it's been awhile since we've seen some of them in action. As for Rimi's training, I very much doubt it's going to make much of a difference in relative terms. If Rimi becomes a legitimate rival, or threat, to Miu, the underlying implication would be that she's stronger than Kenichi. That would be somewhat problematic. Unless Kenichi surpasses Miu, which seems unlikely at any time in the near future, Rimi is always going to be some ways behind Miu.
Glad we are finally getting a kensei arc here. It was kinda overdue to see what the guy is all about. He has barely done anything since kenichi met him at the mountains all those chapters back. I wonder how the titan thing will come into play here. Kensei is training 3 disciples with titan and has ryuto around. None of them seem to be about to take a position among the yomi just yet and none of them would seem to currently be an evident match for kenichi. Of course, it also does not seem reasonable for kenichi to defeat the remaining titan himself. Maybe just one of them would be ok but the remaining ones should be left for the shinpaku guys. Honestly though, considering all 3 titans are not actual yomi(at least not kensei's yomi) it would make more sense for the lot of them to take on the shinpaku guys than kenichi.
I guess the author could go for yet a third miu-rimi battle but that would be boring. Even if rimi's speed growth somehow exceeds miu's growth enough for her to be a match it would not make up for the difference in technique or ki. Rimi is a bit of miu's rival now however it plainly would not make sense for her to be a match within the mid term and perhaps even the long term. I think the only actually interesting thing the author could do with rimi nowadays is for her to fight freya or kisara. As for the remaining two titans, I would like to see one of them fight takeda. It is about time takeda takes on a yomi and defeats him. He has had master class training and showed he was even a respectable match for kenichi so taking on a yomi would be a perfect development for him. I would love to see takeda against berserker,a berserker who would have technique in particular. Can't really say anything for the last titan guy though. Who would fight him? I guess since he is unknown to us he would be the most likely candidate to fight kenichi. Then again perhaps it is a bit overdone to see a seigfried fight. Seigfried is likely the strongest guy in shinpaku safe for kenichi so perhaps he would make sense for fighting the last titan.
I do wonder when kajima is making a move. The only yomi left are basically rachel and chikage, neither of whom are likely to fight kenichi for the time being considering their master's position. Then we have natsu who was technically already defeated and his master has no interest on the matter. At the moment, kenichi's fight with kajima is almost imminent, there is only titan left.
I think, considering Kensei's methods, Rimi might get temporary boost in power but with huge drawbacks, not unlike what happened to Ryuto. She might get strong enough to fight Miu on equal grounds but for a limited time, or she risks her life/gets crippled/loses all power/loses cuteness after that. That's one believable and I think likely way she could catch up to Miu.

Not to mention I hardly doubt Kenichi is ready to fight Kajima at his level, and I'm know basing Kajima's strength off pure hype alone without much evidence; but I believe that guy is probably stronger than Miu.

Mangastream translation is out: http://mangastream.com/read/hsdk/26970947/1
Here, Saiga says that he was notified beforehand while in the other he stated he wasn't informed. In the new translation you could interpret "being informed" as that Akira told him about this before going to Tidat while in the old translation you could interpret "not being informed" as the fact that Silcardo acted on his own whims; whatever it was it does not appear as something important.
There is also Cyril's translation: in the new one he states he wanted Silcardo's death while on the old one he was more respectful and stated that Silcardo always wanted a battle to die for.
Mikumo wanted to get Silcardo out of the equation due to his chaotic nature and he "jumped on it like a bitch in heat" (Law abiding citizen reference, hehehe).
Agaard is still an active member of Yami, I wonder if we'll see him again (story-wise if he appears again it will be as an ally).
^yes I read this yesterday and I forgot to post the link..the translation differences are always so glaring between mangastream and other websites
Cyril and Mikumo are chumps if they wanted Silcardo dead so badly they should have killed him themselves instead getting other people to do the dirty work.

Well, mikumo did things the smart way ultimately. Even if she is strong enough to deal with junazad, which might or not be the case, just killing him would prove to be a problem. In this particular case she got to have another of the 9 fist get permission to break the non aggression pact without consequences. If she had done the deed herself just like that then she would have had to deal with the consequences which akira is not dealing with right now.
Somehow I can't imagine the previous disciples appearing for a rematch with kenichi. How would that work plotwise? If the former yomi are to appear then it would make sense for them to fight the shinpaku guys. I have been saying this for a while but it is about time the shinpaku guys take on a yomi. In particular ukita, I would love to see him face koukin. Seigfried vs ethan would be incredible too. Boris is unlikely to appear again, it is very likely he will remain looking for his master. Jihan is likely to remain out of yomi, specially now that his master is dead. If I recall rachel has a pending fight with renka so it would perhaps be nice to see her go at it once again. Not sure who could fight freya or kisara, I guess rimi could do (no more miu fighting her PLEASE). Rachel would be too much for either of them anyways. Not sure what tanimoto's role could be here. I guess a rematch with kenichi could be interesting and taking on a stronger sougetsu would be interesting.Quote:
I'm not sure, but I think MS's translation might be a little off with Cyril. Wasn't he supposed to be friends with Jenezad?
At least we're almost guaranteed to get some Shinpaku fights this arc thanks to this page. http://mangastream.com/read/hsdk/26970947/15
I'm looking forward to putting the Tidat Arc behind me.

I find it interesting that Tanimoto states that Kenichi has not made any improvements whatsoever. Could this be because he hasn't had proper training sessions with his masters because he was busy rescuing Miu in the last arc?! It's weird Akisame said Kenichi got sharper or something during a sparring match don't remember what was exactly said....
