I'm probably minority here, considering how much fan Jirou seems to have. But Shukuchihou seems to render Volley pretty useless. Moreover, Kai also had mountain training compare to U-17 training, which seems to give more result. I'm giving this one to Kai. Jirou's score just isn't something I see boasting about. And I feels National! Kikumaru can steals more than 1 game from Fuji (3 counter), too.

As Ken said, Magic Volley isn't that good, and even though Kai isn't that great, Shukuchihou should be able to deal with it. Viking Horn might also trip up Jirou a bit.

I'm going 6-4 Kai.

Kai only has vertical Shukuchihou, if Jirou hits the ball to a corner then Shukuchihou is useless.

We don't know if that's true, Atobe didn't go to the mountain and improved a lot comparing to others. Sakata got zig zag ,Kenya learnt how to balance, Gakuto learnt how to jump lower... and they all went to the mountain. Mountain players had more screen time, that's all.

And I feels National! Kikumaru can steals more than 1 game from Fuji (3 counter), too.
It's a pity that this is Jirou vs Kai and not Fuji vs Kikumaru lol

Shukuchihou is not useless. Jirou haven't shown ability to hit to control his shot that precisely, at all. Jirou can't volley and do a drop shot against Kai. We don't even knows if Jirou can handle viking horn. Jirou is very much overrated.

Jirou can steal only 1 game from 3 counter Fuji. Kikumaru looks like he can do more than that. Kai fought Kikumaru on even ground. Is there anything hard to understand?

Technically, Fuji was screwing around and let Jirou win a service game. Sure, the set score was 6-1, but we all know that it was a bagel and probably a golden set as well.

DAFUQ? Do you know what Magic Volleys mean? Very well aimed volleys that barely bounce.

I understood you, but that's comparing too much. The question you should be doing is: Do you see KAI winning ANY games against Reg! Fuji? Personally, I don't.

Although Shukuchihou is only in one plane it's still going to neutralize the vast majority moves that relies on hitting the ball to somewhere you're not. Magic Volley definitely seems to fall under that category. Looking at how it's depicted, it seems like someone near the net standing around the middle can easily hit them all back if he got there on time, and someone with Shukuchihou will always get there on time.

I don't think Jiro would lose to Kikumaru in singles, so I'm going with Jiro over Kai.

Same.
Kikumaru and Kai are on the same level.
Jiro is where Kenya, Jackal and Hiyoshi are imo.

Fair point, but all in all, so far, we have seen the Losers improve much more. Let's be honest.

Jirou wins because of Magic Volley. Jirou only needs to aim it at the corner to counter Shukuchihou.

True. As Kai's Shukuchihou is countered by aiming at the sides, Jirou could just do his Magic volley in a corner (diagonally) and Kai won't be able to use it. Kai and Kikumaru are in the same level, and I see Jirou defeating Kikumaru and Kai. He should be able to eventually return Viking Horn.

6-4 to Jirou.

Kai and Chinen are just awful versions of Kite.
Hirakoba is an okay version.

Tanishi is just an extremely uncool Kite. That's personally how I view Higa.

I view them as:

Kai - Gimp Kite
Tanishi - Gimp Kite at 300 lbs
Chinen - Gimp Kite at 90 lbs and mentally disabled
Rin - Kite with Giant Habu

So really, Rin is the closest one to being less Kite than the rest because he has his own technique.

He doesn't have anything, Habu's Kite technique too lol.

Kai= Viking Horn, southpow, cap.
Tanishi= Carioca Step, Big Bang Serve, Fat.
Chinen= lol, Chinen.
Hikaroba= Tachibana's fanboy, Habu, dyed Hair.

Kite= Everything except Carioca Step, glasses, jerk.

The entire team is just a joke except for Kite and Hirakoba.

Hirakoba has the Ohabu though.
And after Chinen bt Tanishi, you can't prove Chinen is weaker than either Kai nor Tanishi.
So the latter three are all Incomplete!Kite's lol.

Oh god... I hope Saeki will have some more screentime. He's my fav characters from Rokkaku. Too bad about him, really. Saeki+Fuji would be pretty fun team to watch, strength exclude.

Loved Saeki. Would have thrown in him in my fav characters had he not been weaker than Fuji Yuuta in Singles.
Which is why I can't complain about him not coming to the camp. He wasn't even Top two in Rokkaku. Amane and Kurobane were even ahead of him.
Such a shame that such a cool guy could suck so bad.

While this talk about side characters is nice and all, remember that this is Kai vs Akutagawa, so something slightly more on-topic would be appreciated.
