@SMXLR8: Cage tanked much more than Sanosuke could ever deliver, and not to mention he is much stronger. Considering the tendency of Sanosuke of trying to tank hits he would end up with his head blown off by Cage
@SMXLR8: You know, Kenshiro and Raoh still win, even if you take their hax they're still clearly superior in strenght and speed, without mentioning that they are the two most powerful characters of their series and are said to be capable of taking armies apart with ease. Ken and Raoh win by a landslide even if you remove their skill they're still better Martial Artists than Sakaki and Hongo, and their base stats are through the roof. Kenshiro beated down a goddamn tank with his barehands. He didnt flip it like Hayato Furuinji, he pierced through the plating with pure brute force. Unless you tell me you also take Raoh and Kenshiro physical strenght from, and while you are at it you can take their eyesight and their limbs....
If you make Kenshiro and Raoh go down to the Kenichi verse logic you not only take all their charm, you also strip them of martial arts, as Hokuto and Nanto are supernatural martial arts, and Kenshiro and Raoh mostly if not all the time use only this two schools. (And I think they still could pull the movement copy or the pressure points in a world of super martial artists, but who I'm to complain if you want them depowered to the basics)
What you want is a scenario where Sakaki and Hongou can beat Kenshiro and Raoh, well why dont you make Kenshiro and Raoh fight blindfolded and limbless against Sakaki and Hongou. If you remove their martial arts and other series related skills you're leaving to massively fast, durable and strong monsters that lack any martial art skill. The only thing that difference them from, let me think.... Solomon Grundy is that they're intelligent. And more manly
@SMXLR8: But every Martial art Kenshiro and Raoh know is composed by super moves. But if you only want them to use their fist they are still faster stronger and more durable. Also they can copy the techniques of their opponent perfectly, so they can learn the same level of Karate as they fight against Sakaki and Hongo. Kenshiro and Raoh are even stronger than old man Furuinji
@SMXLR8: Even without pressure points Raoh and Kenshiro have strenght feats that go over Sakaki and Hongo. They have more endurance and more speed. They can still use the nanto or other techniques with shockwaves they learnt or copied so they have range advantage. And with Muso Tensei they're intagibel and unittable no selling any attack and enhancing their own strenght. This is a massive defeat for the Karate Masters
“I’ll find answer wherever the fuck I want Gunslinger” said Falken with broken voice and bad attitude. He didn’t even turn around to face the newcomer, taking another sip from the beer bottle. The sound of the old ceiling fan engine mixed with the rolling bottles in the ground that were pushed by the door. Dim light, coming from dusty fluorescent tubes and from in-between the curtains. The whole place was covered by a heavy cloak of dust, silent testament of how nobody had cleaned it in almost ten years. The same could count for Falken clothing and body, which was completely dirty, with long messy hair covering his face and shoulders. He lacked his left arm, and the sleeve of his filthy black shirt hanged empty from his side, while his right arm was leaned over the counter and his hand grabbed the wet bottle firmly. “What the hell does the World’s most Wanted Outlaw want in my humble bar? A drink? Remembering nostalgic memories? Or you come here for another duel? You need some reassuring to your skills and you’ll use me as target?” Falken sounded delirious; the once deadliest man on Earth was drunk beyond belief. He had drunk more than enough to kill a couple of dozen men, as his implants managed to avoid the effects of the booze, but after so much even the advanced bio-technology that granted him abilities over the mortal men failed and he was completely and utterly wasted. With shining eyes, barely visible under his dirty hair, Falken barely stood up using the counter to lean into, with evident effort, thanks to his blurry vision and lack of motor skills he went for the back of his waist with his hand and pulled a rusty gun, it was his old Aznable Particle Handgun, now in so bad shape any could barely recognize it. He aimed with trembling hand towards Crow, with madness imprinted in his eyes “So how it’s going to be Cementerio? One last duel to put me down and take me out of my misery? BWEHEHEHEH *cough*… With a mad fit of laughter Falken waited for Crow reply.
Meanwhile is a better neighborhood of Inazuma City, a young man, working his first day as government officer. Ichiro Jigen was one of the first graduates in the Inazuma College, and worked for the Research and Development crew as a junior accountant. He was under the orders of the department Allison Hawkins, a genius scientist and main designer of the Elite Forces equipment. Ichiro walked from the bus stop towards the Taiki Tower as he was instructed. “Man, what a drag I wanted to stay more time in the office, I hate field work” he said while the elevator moved towards the top floor. Ichiro only hoped a stable job and getting a girlfriend, he liked his office it was neat and tidy, just as he clothes and attitude. The streets and the “outside” was something he disliked. The elevator door opened and Ichiro entered and said “I’m looking for the Private Senshi Rank 1 known as Lan Fan, I have a request from the R&D Department of Inazuma City to act as courier for an important package” He took a papaer from his folder and a pen " If you agree sign here and report to the R&D Department"
@Fehafare: Well you'll be in the Imported Heroes Plot line but in the wrong side of the law
@kashif1: Yes, in fact I was about to send and NPC that works for the goverment to hire the Taiki crew
@Fehafare: Private Senshi are registered. The Imported Heroes are the man-power that was brought from other Cities to fill out the space left the PS that went to fight Kaiju. Lobos just told the plot points that you can use while unregistered (in fact you need to be registered to enter the Tournament)
@kashif1: It's a Free for all
Born in London, heir to a lineage of underworld creatures Killers. She is british to the bone, even if she dont step the British Islands for 5 years. Brash, abrassive and foul mouthed Cross is a sworn enemy to anything supernatural. Heavy drinker and man-eater Cross can be considered almost as bad as the ones she fight, but as her effectivity rate is almost of a 100% while fighting foul supernatural creatures most of his horrible personality traits can be overlooked. She is a Rank 2 Private Senshi, working in Osaka. Trained from the cradle she is a deadly opponent to the undead and other underworld creatures. Her body is trained to it's peak and is the Host of the Hunter Eye, that allows her to track supernatural energy and follow the blinding movements of her prey, as it also grants supernatural reflexes and reaction speed. She carries blessed wrist mounted automatic crossbows with silver coated bolts. UV Grenades and Stakes are also in her arsenal. Two daggers are spring loaded in her wristbands and two more hidden in the boot. Proficient with martial arts, mostly of militar origin like Krav Maga. She haces some skill with minor magic, channeled through a blessed bible, a relic of one of her ancestor. She can create holy light that hinders the Vampire senses, a powerful healing spell that can even nullify the werewolf bite and other supernatural ills. She aint sutile, but she can get the job done
@Fehafare: Kaiju are giant monster that come from the sea(created by Mangetsu Scientists, check the Shin Nihon thread for more infor about the country), called like this in reference to the Godzlla movie style monster that are also called Kaiju. Only the top Private Senshi are called to fight them. The imported heroes are Registered superhumans from other cities (as the outlands are completly devasted and irradiated) that replace the Private Senshi Top Tier while they're fighting Kaiju. To fight Kaiju you need to be Tier 5 aprox, better than that or having master class suport skills
The sound of the crowded city was the song that Inazuma City sung. An orchestra of cars honking, millions of rhythmic steps and people talking, the song of a busy metropolis. Inazuma City was this and much more, as Capital of Shin Nihon, the country that surged as a phoenix from the ashes of Japan. The afternoon was just starting and thousands of men and women were leaving their jobs and going towards their home. The public transportation, unlike other cities, worked like clockwork, and there wasn’t any bus, train or subway crowded with people travelling like cattle. Inazuma City was the pinnacle of technological development and urban planning, with a school for every child, an hospital bed for every sick, and a policeman for every crook, or so their City Hall Public Relations office announced it. They weren’t really too far from reality, but this perfection was only achieved by the hard work of the public officers and the advanced network of communication connected to the main computers of the City, the Benkei Network, named in honor of Musashibo Benkei, Japanese feudal Hero. As it namesake, the Benkei Network won’t fall down. The city isn’t all roses, as there are some patches that can be considered shady. The Garyuu Zaibatsu is in charge of the distribution and the sale of the goods in the, sometimes accused of being monopoly, Toyotomi-Mart, in reference to Hideoyoshi Toyotomi, one of the warlords in the Sengoku jidai, a mega-chain of shops of every size that populate every city in Japan, and even in some of the 7 cities. The police forces are considered the one most disciplined and effective in the whole world, with high tech armors created in the Shishido Research Labs. But not even them can face criminals that are skilled in the ways Ki, Mystical arts or just plainly superhuman men and women, or even monsters, so there is when the Private Senshi enter, they’re independent experts in taking out super human enemies , that live all over the city and are registered. Illegal Vigilantes exist, but aren’t really penalized except if they start behaving like judge, jury and executioner.
-Here live from the Shin Nihon Broadcasting Network, we come with the news for our country, our first story takes us to the Business District, were a group of inhabitants is starting an anti-human riot in front of the Sakura Supernatural Affair Office, home of the register of superhuman, as they asked for the public release of the Private Senshi register, the public officers of the Sakura ministry don’t have any kind of reply for the claims of the rioters, that work under the banner of the Anti-Senshi Organization, or ASO.- The camera changed and the newsman turned to face it with an impeccable smile.- In other news a gas line leak caused an explosion in the Central District, luckily it was detected with time and the sector was evacuated, stopping the loss of any life, but some property damage was caused and is already in repairs.- The voice of this newsman and his report was sounding in almost every TV that was turned on in the city, but somebody had the device turned on and wasn’t listening. The dark room only illumination was the dirty screen of the TV, a man sitting on a dusty bar was drinking cheap beer with his eyes staring at the void of his own soul, which as he discovered 10 years ago was empty and useless. He had sunk in his own depression and lack of use in this new world. He took another long sip of beer while he hoped that his surroundings would blur away, the booze knocking him down, but the implants that once made him so lethal and efficient now were stopping him from drinking his ass to sleep. Another day, another part of his immense fortune spent on booze. Hundreds of letters, job offers lied in the entrance of his bar, never opened, forming a pile that almost obstructed half door.
-In other news the inscription for the City Martial Arts Tournament, in tribute to the 10 anniversary is open for anybody that want to participate, you should visit the Tsubaki Sports Ministry and sign the papers and fill in your information sheet. There are several categories that include a division for Post-humans and regular humans to avoid any problems. All participants will have to fill a permit that will take away the responsibility from the City Hall in case of injury, but they will receive free medical attention for their wounds during the tournament.- Another Tv, another place, a rugged man, with a white mane of hair and a muscular body. His body was full of scars, and covered in strange tatoos. He was a Kaiju Hunter, a specialist in fighting the giant monster that were created by the devious Mangetsu organization. He heard the TV but didn’t watch the screen; he was busy checking the straps of his armor. Alongside him a massive Nodachi, of modern design, built to withstand constant use and to be kept razor-sharp with ease. Batsu was a Private Senshi, but he wasn’t permitted to take jobs inside urban spaces thanks to his tendency to cause more damage than the ones he hunts. But thankfully he found his place in the world killing the monster that came from the pacific. He stood up and grabbed the blade with one hand, lifting it with ease. – Let’s go Kyotansen, the Kaiju are waiting for us.- The Modern Samurai left the dressing room and joined the others in the main ship of the Shin Nihon Fleet, the Yamatogawa. The wind speed increased as the Flying cruise hovered over the Pacific Ocean in route to a massive figure with faint resemblance to a Bear.
-The last piece of this segment is about the Hero Exchange program, that brings different registered post-humans into Inazuma to help them train, as we also send our young ones and not so young to train in other cities to reinforce the bonds between cities and increase the approbation for the Heroes that helps us and protect us from groups as the Raimei Rebels or the San Yama Gumi.- A young girl was suiting up in the department given to her by the government. She was preparing for her first day as a hero in Inazuma City. She worked in Europe before, and when the exchange program was proposed to her she decided to accept to visit relatives she had in the City. Young Ariana was taught by her father, the use of a style of combat using something called “Ferveur” a type of spiritual energy analog to the oriental Ki. Her father was part of an order of knights that existed since the crusades but always tried to act in secret, as they didn’t wanted to be used as the kings and popes weapons. They’re demon hunters, using spears infused with “Ferveur” to slay the mystical monsters. Ariana was young and new in this job, but she wanted to do the best she could. With evident enthusiasm, ignoring the TV while humming a French song, as she grabbed her spear and jumped from the high floor. The best part of her new job was this, she loved the feeling of the wind in her air as she dropped from a high altitude. –Let’s go! Inazuma City get ready to meet your new guardian! Demons beware” She shouted with evident glee
@Sonata: Yes, the imported Heroes are Heroes registered in other cities that were asked to live for a season in Inazuma while the higher ups of the Private Senshi and Police forces are in the Kaiju Season (from mid spring to mid summer)
