Natsuo's motivation is overall ennui with life, physicality that comes too easily, and a messed up brother/abusive relationship, but I don't get what her beef is with yuzuko. She gets irked by her happiness in physicality? Because it's contrary to her brother? Because it doesn't come easy to her? (since the flashback showed that yuzuko sucked compared to naturally talented ringi, despite practicing so hard. Does this hold to the 99/1% thing natsuo's coach was saying?)

 

She pretty much stated her beef with Yuzuko in earlier chapters. She wants to beat the crap of Yuzuko because she doesn't lke the look on Yuzuko's face. Basically, she's angry that Yuzuko is happy. Its tied into her issues that stem fro, her brother.

Overall, this series has an uneven tone- it's definitely not a str8 forward fight manga, reaching for something a bit more with some of the seams showing in its attempt to reach beyond.

Yuzuko- I don't get what they all feel her motivation is? Sadism, masochist, or something simpler as reveling in the physicality of martial arts? The series always hints at people's motivations, and while it doesn't have to be spelled out for each character, it's kind of frustrating to be led on with a "oh, that's the reason" statements by observant characters, without saying WHAT the reason is.

 

Has the 3rd girl in the MMA club been NAMED? I feel bad for her =D Kei is a funny sidekick/friend as well, but whose role isn't really a traditional sidekick either.

 

Otherwise, the adults in this series are all...petty? Capricious? Assholes? So pretty realistic =P

 

Park Du Na and all the other fighters who are shown to be shuddering/crying at times/nervous, too cute =D The mangaka is funny with the choices of when and how to display their nerves. But the witch of the west is kind of a jackass, especially to her own student.

 

Overall, this manga is different from far more traditional, straightfoward fight based ones- makes for an interesting read.

Strong, flexible, freckled, adorable Korean waifu.

 

Du-Na truly is best girl.

If only real life Women's MMA could be as exciting at this. (Protip: it's not).

 

So you're a pro in Women's MMA?

Strong, flexible, freckled, adorable Korean waifu.

so, not getting flustered, and confused is considered 'creepy' *sigh* whatever...

Mawatari is actually smiling instead of being concerned in front of a rival who seems impossible to defeat, I think that's what the witch can't understand.

 

However, I think everyone is misreading Yuzuko, she likes to improve herself and she won't be able to do so if she keeps fighting weak rivals. That's why she is happy now, even when Park is mopping the floor with her. Now that she has acknowledged Park as a worthy opponent, she will be serious for the first time in the series. I bet we'll see a very different Yuzuko in the next chapter.

A-grade comedy material.

Comedy? There's nothing comedic about this series as far as I see.

 

Unless you count the maid uniform chapter as funny. I just thought "wow"

I am sick of all the characters, really not a single one of them is likable, what is the point if some of them just manage to get in the combo wombo of being obnoxious? 

 

I mean starting with the main character, she hates people who have everything... while she herself has everything.

Is like the authors themselves are then passing that bitch attitude to the other characters, so they have to go and call a girl being happy and enjoying herself and label her as creepy, sure she is a sadist, and likes a challenge, but no one on this story is normal so who are they to judge?

You don't like them. I do. Welcome to the world.

Exactly. She's a flawed screwed up person. So what? A lot of people have issues and are also hypocrites.

So people are not allowed to have private thoughts about what they think of others cause you are offended? And Yuzuku(IIRC) is not a sadist.

She was blusing I think in pg 28. That is what creeped out the wicth. Cordero obviously doesn't care as you can see.

I am getting sick of this characters that keep calling her ''creepy'', just leave her alone dammit.

huehue

 

Again with the shounen cliche-antagonizing. F**kin love it.

 

Now...

 

WHERE'S MY NATSUO
 

Being double-jointed doesn't mean grapples don't work; I'm double-jointed and an arm-bar would have me stuck on the ground.

Very few fights at all are this exciting.

The pace had been outstanding until chapter 24, where, in my opinion, had a pretty big negative drop.

I mean, even Sanae vs Natsuo only lasted for 2 chapters, and now Eyebrows vs Park Du-na has lasted 4 chapters

 

Spoiler

 

Even if this had backstory and all of that, it's pretty disapointing

It's because Park Du-na is cute... and because it allow us to know more about the archenemy mid-combat and show how people react to her which is good for the story, but I prefer the first reason so let's focus on that.

What a trip.

I just noticed how many chapter titles are about eyebrows.

Only just...?
Maaaaaaaan Natsuo is fucked in the head in a way I totally understand, and I'm kind of amazed by how real she is as a character. This is the first time I've found a character that portrays this mindset so well - the apathy towards anything tediously easy, the joyful enthusiasm of a challenge that completely outmatches her, the crushing disappointment when impossible odds turn out to be mostly trivial... More than winning or losing, what really drives her is the elusive feeling of self-improvement, of discovering towering new heights and putting everything she has into reaching the summit. It's really beautiful. I wasn't sure if I'd like this manga, but the moment Natsuo went up to the rooftop to fight Yuzuko and LOSE, I knew I'd love it. And the tension of her twisted sense of inferiority inflicted on her by her worthless beloved brother...! It's so good. It's so terrible, and it's so good.

Thick eyebrows

So she always dream about her brother to be someone like that but in reality he's coward , man i feel sorry for her. 

damn I just love how crazy she is in the head.
