Ochi is considerably cooler.
However the Mach Serve should be countered once they reach the 5-5 mark with Clone Technique.
I believe he prepares clones before the serve, he can counter the serve eventually.
Also, Tooyama is said to have Super Strength, while Ochi doesn't really have strength.
That Super Yama Funka Serve looked damaging. Along with Clone Technique and Super Megaton blah blah Tooyama shouldnt lose.
So Tooyama 6-4 Ochi
But this is definetely a match I would love to see animated.
Most exciting match in this tournament so far for me.
Tooyama definitely. The only problem is Mach serve, Kintarou would deal with it if Atobe returned it second try. However, Kintarou's mental is really low, so he might have problems dealing with Ochi's mental pressure.
I'm going with Tooyama because he would destroy Ochi as he has no strength. 6-3 for Tooyama or 6-4.
This depends entirely if Tooyama can break the serve. Ochi Mental Assassin also seem that it would be pretty effective against Kin-Chan. However, I don't see Ochi returning Kin-Chan new serve either. Eventually, Ochi arm should give out.
I think it would be really close. Tooyama wins in the strength department, but Ochi wins in the Mental department.
Ochi's Mental pressure sorta ressembles Yukimuras Yips in a way. When yuki yipped Tooyama, he was utterly defeated, even though he is one known for amazing strength.
Ochi's serve would also be a big factor too.
Tooyamas serve was good too--- but even though it seemed like it scored on Hakamada, it really didnt phase him as he just did vanish the next points and started beating Tooyama.
I think Ochi could hold serve, as it seems he was never broken in the match except maybe in the very last set. Tooyama would prolly hold serve too, but might have a higher chance of being broken if the mental pressure gets to him.
Close match where I still can not determine a winner.
I'm thinking 6-2 or 6-3 Kintarou. The pressure won't be on Ochi's opponent here, but on Ochi as Ochi doesn't have the speed or power to counter Kintarou so there will be zero threat of Kintarou's serve being broken. With the clones, Kintarou eventually returns Mach if he couldn't do so from the start. Of course, Kintarou could perhaps KO Ochi with Daishaarin. :P
Nah Ochi's a weaklin in terms of power he would get Koe'd by one of Kintarou's techniques. 6-2 for Kin-chan
If Ochi (and Mouri for that matter) were really that weak to power shots, why did Atobe tell Niou to switch back to Tezuka and not stay as Kabaji for the rest of the match as well? Seems like a much better choice to me if it was that simple.
Wasn't Mental Assassination caused by the pressure on Atobe to win? Kintaro's one of those "play for fun" guys who doesn't really care about winning. In fact, Chitose said his carefree attitude was why he was closest to TnK, not Echizen... so would Mental Assassination even work?
EDIT: Actually that more shows a good movement speed, not reaction. If he had an awesome reaction time, he would have just hit it the first try like everyone else.
