The sequel to the manga Aiki in which the genius martial artist, Kunitoshi Joukyuu, pursues ways in appeasing both his interest in having fun and restoring his body to its former peak condition before his father sealed his powers through weakening his physical capabilities. This time with Veronica and Akemi by his side, he gets an invitation by a former Karate Master and Japanese cuisine chef to head to America and deal with some mysterious organisation gathering martial artist.
Aiki tells the story of a certain martial artist, whom at the age of 16 was renowned as one of the worlds greatest martial artist, but his father, a legendary physician, feeling this talent was making his road too easy, sealed a large portion of his power away through weakening his physical capabilities in hopes that he would come to appreciate the power he once held. Now, with his father dead and martial artists seeking him out, Kunitoshi Joukyuu searches for a way to restore his body to its former optimum condition.
I finally came across this Legendary Pokémon as I worked to stopped Team Flare from accomplishing their questionable goals. I was tempted to use my only Master Ball I had, but I opted against that thought and instead drained Xerneas down into the red and proceeded to capture it with a Great Poké Ball. I am extremely excited I have finally come across the poster face of Pokémon X, been waiting for this encounter since I bought the game. Now that I have it, one of my other Pokémon which I am quite fond of has to be sidelined =( – ended up sidelining my Blaziken for now.
So his name is Kurokiba Ryou, what an exciting introduction to the type of cooking he stylizes in. I have to admit, Ryou is quite the badass character, he has an awesome character design and his personality shift when he wears his bandana around his head is a cool quirk he has. It was amusing seeing him talk back to Natsume in such a manner and ultimately prey on her concealed desires of lusting after his dish once she had the first few bites. Also establishing Ryou as having grown up on the battlefield of cooking really demonstrates what a dangerous man Ryou is within the current student year group of Tootsuki Academy.
