His backstory was washing up and beating a bunch of nobodies offscreen. And getting a knife from his mommy. His opponent is a demon incarnate with most of the chapter devoted to sucking him off.

The term you're looking for is image training and it's just exaggerated version of what people can do in the real world exaggerated to show that he's a Super Genius fighter. Especially in the realm of martial arts or Sports this idea is common.

It goes back as far as Dragon Ball dude. Krillin and Goku literally psychically linked with each other to spar. This is an old ass idea and I guarantee their examples that predate Toriyama.

While it's an old concept, I'd be willing to be that Baki popularized it the most in modern time as a form of wacky super-training. Baki is a rather influential manga when it comes to fighting tropes/memes.
>>
>>237735375
It's old as shit.
For example, though not as old as DB, older than ROR, there's Outer Body Training Method in The Breaker.

With Baki it's somewhat different, Baki mostly does super advanced shadow-boxing, he does move his body instead of it all being in his head.

he took a shit on the third battle and decided to ruin it for the sake of creating the story's "villain", it's his choice i guess, tho I think munemori is kinda luckluster as a main character, and damn william is such a shit character lmao, literal rapist with no redeeming qualities and a fighting style that isn't a fighting style (kengan omega reference?)

Sad our gaijin lost, but realistically nips would never allow a white man to win against their national heroes
>>
What I find disappointing about William Adams isn't that he didn't get a second health bar, it's his backstory. It's a bit sloppy even for this manga. He's a "rude/drunk/profane dirty street fighter" sort of character, so why knight training? Why judicial duels? While some of these fights did end up with wrestling on the ground with mutual dick-stabbing with a big knife, you'd think that Adams would look like a knight, act like a knight, and start the fight with a long sword or polearm, and use armor or at least a shield. These duels often involved armor and shield since settling the matter was the primary purpose, not outright killing. It's also why they didn't start the fight with a dagger and danced around, they had to start with the can-opened weapon, then switch to the knife as the situation demands.

It's so weird because how easy it would have been to just write "Adams was born on a boat and fought like a beast on every continent, self-taught, a natural born predator, on a quest to rape the world". No need to bring knight stuff. Just have ANOTHER gaijin with knight training. Or make him start as an honorable knight and devolve into a rapebeast as the battle lust gets to him.

Even more baffling, why a woman teacher? This guy is on a quest to rape and defile everything under the sun, to inseminate the very land of Yamato, but his mentor was a woman? He even fights with the weapon she gifted him. How does that makes sense? Give the woman mentor to everyone EXCEPT the serial rapist.
>>
>>237733785
I have no trouble believing that Munemori spent a *lot* of time at night, alone, in complete darkness, having image training about Fuma's big meaty tree-sized thighs.
>>
>>237737070
>story's "villain"
I still can't think of him that way. He was pretty nice in his normal mode, and Nobutada just wants to get what he was already entitled to, if daddy hadn't gone crazy. Itosai is much more intimidating with his single gesture than Munenori with all his twisted faces
>>

"in that single instant, Munemori desperately sought a way to escape this deadly peril and unlocked his maximum potential as a genius swordman. In the blink of an eye he image-trained for a thousand years, all in a millisecond, his head being squashed by mommy-ninja in extreme slow motion, as it inevitably happened in real life".

Considering it's Nakamaru it could happen, but I think it would be in round 2 or 3, not in the middle of round 1, round 1 would be to establish the players. Personally I hope it just stays a tournament.
>>
>>237738390
What if William was a better character/historically accurate, but he was still completely destroyed in two chapters? Would people be less mad?
I think it would be kino, but I also think the other anons would still be seething.

>>237739303
Would make sense since Yagyu's 'O my Mind' ability virtually provides him ways to counter his attacks or how to kill him.
>>
>>237737070
>tho I think munemori is kinda luckluster as a main character

Yeah he's not that interesting. He's good at swords just because and he gets better by just...imagining it. Okay.
>>
>>237739303
It'd be infinitely better, it would made things unpredictable and it would have given weight to the duel's result. As it stands, you don't give a fuck if gaijin rapist dies or if psycho samurai wins, it's just boring. I hope they never repeat that mistake.

Nipwank aside, they could not have made a more obvious jobber if they tried

Adams could have wanted to make himself emperor of nippon and personally sodomize Oda Nobunaga. He also could have been introduced actually raping a japanese woman instead of just letting his cock fly full mast during a storm.

>but his mentor was a woman?
Settle down, speedy. First of all, his mentor was his mother and he was never stated to be a knight. The dirk dance isn't "knight training" it's a form of Scottish dancing with roots in knife fighting. The author probably just chose it because it's relatively exotic, since most of the cast uses Japanese swords or spears.
What should be notable is that chapter 1 depicted him in more refined Western clothes but carrying a Japanese sword. I'd have thought he'd use longsword or saber fencing techniques, but it seems the author changed his mind between then and now.

I want the opposite. Edgy rapist is fun, but I knew he'd ultimately job to Yamato Damashi. I just wish he had an extra chapter or so to put up a better fight. Maybe he'd throw a curveball by revealing
>"I'VE ADAPTED THE DIRK DANCE FOR USING THIS HALBERD I'VE HIDDEN BELOW A LOOSE DECK PLANK."
or perhaps
>"JUDICIAL DUELING HAS GIVEN ME EXPERTISE OVER ALL EUROSHIT WEAPONS. PREPARE FOR 3 CHAPTERS OF MORDHAU WANKERY AND A FUCKING TRIPLE-HEADED FLAIL."
Wearing a set of Western armor under his clothes would be a fun surprise and actually make Yagyu look stronger when he goes full genius swordsman and defeats it.
As it stands, I guess the author didn't want to spend too much time on a jobber, reveal too many of Yagyu's techniques, and keep Yagyu fresh for when he gets further up the bracket.

On one hand, Musashi is pretty much the most obvious win due to having the plot armor known as raw potential and potential set-up to have him fight Sasaki and Munenori down the road. On the other, having Musashi lose would be such a head-turner it'd make up for predictably having William job hard here. But then that'd pretty much be giving Fuma waifu plot armor

Expectations:

-kojiro vs hanzo will not feel like a real fight either with hanzo doing lots of silly tricks and ending up getting mogged by pure swordsmanship

-togo vs yasuke will have the most impressive choreogeaphy

-hozoin vs jinsuke will be a return to form closer to the first two fights with gritty action and strong characterization

-final match will be a agito vs okubo, introducing ito as the tournament's monster and braids as a serious contender who would have gone farther on a different seed
