    Just cutting number of panels with them clashing in half and shortening Riboku's speech to get to the point faster would have done wonders.

    Riboku hopefully won't have much more to add and we can focus on the battle and end this soon.
    Though with Karyo Ten heading there what else is she to do but talk... and Kyoukai is awake again... and the spirits. nevermind.. it can drag for a whole lot longer... :/
    it will feel satisfying when he finally cuts him down. as long as Houken is finally out of the picture it will be alright.
    at least, until we meet Houken's long lost brother to take his place as plot device or some other random person, lol

    I see. I think i was entirely ignoring strategic content, so it didn't register to me how bad this have become.

    Its hard to ignore that, if the whole premise was about two strategic geniuses clashing, and instead we got an endless battle with little or no sound strategy, and instead just pure strength or asspulls by both parties.

    Its not even really satisfying, as both Shin and Kyoukai should have been dead by now, the way their fight was depicted. Only massive amounts of plotarmor are saving them.

    Well I suppose maybe I just have tendency to not pay attention to a bad stuff and have an eye out for things that resonates with me. Or maybe I'm just bad at storytelling and so can't tell what is expected to be important in story.

    edit: I have a bad feeling after writing this, which I assume is sign that I'm wrong with this introspection, so scratch that.

    There is nothing wrong if you yourself still enjoy it. You dont need to care what other people think, though I guess it sucks when you are having a great time with a series or an arc and then pretty much everyone else hates it

    Houken is so bad, he's gonna take the whole manga down.

    The Yotanwa stuff was great earlier, despite Hara not killing Heki for the 99999th time. The right wing battle got weird at times with pacing. Mou Ten and the Gaku Ka's left battles were boring. I liked the infiltration. Shin should be dead, but i'll wait and see how this ends before judging. The complaints about Houken just don't add up.

    While I agree that it should realistically take a lot of suspension of disbelief, I still found Houken's growing frustration and the final slash satisfying in their own. Guess I was able to ignore most of the recent "build-up" and got to enjoy the result as is. Lucky me, lol

    Now that it looks like it is finally over, I do want to acknowledge that Houken did add some good to great moments to the series. Especially that time when he attacked the camp on the hill at night and initiated the chase through the woods when Bi Hei's brother died. That entire event was extremely well done in my opinion and had me on the edge the whole time. Even the fight with Shin after the battle of Sai was satisfying in its own, even if the placement was a bit awkward.
