SNF 2005.07 - Jiro vs Gabriel

Description: Jiro was pitted against Gabriel in an official match at the Mall for the Saturday Night Fight. (Winner: Jiro)

It's... Saturday Night Fight!
Already switching to one o' clock PM, the crowd are gathering for the usual sanctioned street fight. Various stands, camera men, and fans all around have gathered to watch the incoming event. Taking place only outside the stores, the paved streets are cleared away as a space for a ring. Ushered by the store keepers to spread away, the specialty shop owners are attempting to help drum some business in before the fight starts, but they're wanting with anticipation.
Currently waiting on one side is a young blond haired kid. His brown trenchcoat is blown a bit by the wind, and Jiro is looking over at the gathered people. A grunt is given, but he kneels down, patting the stray dogs and cats that are surrounding him.
"GO STRAY DOG!" And Jiro wouldn't be without some of the members of Gedo this time. Amusing.

Gedo high punks were so unlike Justice High school students. There might be Justice high students here to suppose Kai Gabriel, there might even be Darkside Student Congress, but what they weren't was vocal. They would simply be standing in the crowd almost like a military unit, discipline and quiet. That was the most Gabriel could expect out of support, but that was enough for her. She just stood there on her side, having entered early and used that time to stretch and now she clasped her pendant in what seemed like a prayer.
Due to the nature of these fighters being the rather unknown variety, the difference in budget allowed to them is significant. It wasn't even that they received that poor of coverage, but rather than being a display of impressive feats it was more like the WNBA meets the Gong show. At least in some instances.

Alma has arrived.

So the woman and the Justice High twits finally arrived. The sharp blue eyes shift over towards the woman as she is making a prayer. "...Tch." Jiro straightens up his strapped hand. While breaking away from the strays and his classmates, Jiro turns around to face Gabriel.
After making his way towards the middle of the ring, Jiro shuts his eyes softly. "Let's just get this over with." His eyes narrow at the holy girl, tucking his hands into his pocket. He is already in his fighting stance, believe it or not.
He takes a deep breath, glancing over to focus at Gabriel.

Kai looks over toward Jiro and considers him a moment with an almost hurt expression.
"Kasagi-san, we're still friends right? Please do your best." And she bows before drawing into a fighting stance, an opened hand stance.
"Good luck Kasagi-san.."
She isn't going to just stand there like he did though, she pulls out a book, small, holy and throws the blessed object of scripture at Jiro's head. If his negative feelings toward her faith are any indication.. he should get smacked in the forehead.

COMBATSYS: Gabriel has joined the fight here.

Jiro shrugs towards Gabriel, "A fight's a fight." No feelings, no attachments involved. He just wants to get the match over with. And when he heads over towards Gabriel, he is noticing the book over towards his direction. His eyes shift over as he is attempting to quickly swoop away.
That was the theory. However, Gabriel's goddess decided that Jiro should suffer a holy smackdown for insulting her. So, the goddess wills the mighty holy book to bean Jiro upside the head. "****!" That is her divine punishment towards the heathen.
That was annoying. Not only that, but it throws him a bit off course. "...Tch..." While the Stray Dog leans forward, the trenchcoat opens up like a pair of wings as he launches that right fist back. Jiro immediately closes in at Gabriel, drawing his right fist towards her stomach.

COMBATSYS: Gabriel blocks Jiro's Strong Punch.

Gabriel          0/-------/------=|=------\-------\0             Jiro

Kai just crosses her arms to impact the blow, digging her feet into the ground while she's pushed back from the force of impact. But that was just the start, it was time to strike back. Turning her body to one side Gabriel draws her hand up and then throws a palm smack with her palm surrounded by purple energy.

"Yaa-hah!" The attack aims to smack Jiro in the breast bone and give him a slight stagger backward. A girl needs space.

COMBATSYS: Jiro counters Serpent Snap from Gabriel with Backlash.

Gabriel          0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0             Jiro

After Gabriel blocks the incoming punch, Jiro grunts as he draws his hand back, taking a stepback from her as she draws forth her own hand. To counter against the attack, he draws his elbow to drop out towards her arm, and Jiro draws his other hand to her shoulder to bring her down to his knee. "Hrmph!" Afterwards, Jiro is starting to swing the woman around. Grasping onto the arm that tried to attack her, he is taking her around for a spin.
While twisting his body around, he is drawing forth the momentum to continue spinning her around until he can get a firm, good position of her being lifted into the air. Jiro has her tilted upsidedown to where she is standing straight up with the legs hanging out. His other hand is supporting her leg to keep her up there.
...Then, The Stray Dog shifts his body around to slam her down towards the ground, head first. Good ol' Jackhammer.

The crowd watching the fight is not a huge one, and most of those who've come to watch are split between two sides. It is quite obvious, then, when Alma arrives; for not only is he much taller than most of the audience (not to mention how eye-catching his unique hair is), but he stands right in the middle, legs spread in a relaxed stance, as though straddling a gap. The youth is dressed in a green coat, khaki pants, and dark shoes, but most notably, appears to be carrying a small sign. The letters on the front read: "Go Emo McAngstFace". There are little sparky hearts and stars drawn on, highlighted and outlined by someone with a clear artistic taste for cutsie things.
Alma's expression is stoic.
He comes just in time to see Jiro get hit with a book, though, and in respond, he flips the sign around, where, on the back, is written: "Go Kai-san". Here, he has drawn a flowery sort of border around the letters, which are magenta upon a forest green background. Then when Jiro counters Gabriel's next attack, he flips the sign right back over to the Emo side.
At this point, he can't help but start to grin. Eyes twinkling, he watches with growing enthusiasm, and finally calls out, "Alright, you guys, go for it!"
Sure, he's here to cheer on some friends. Perhaps he's also here to check out their fighting styles again. Or maybe he's just here to tell Jiro that he really did have an appointment, really, and he wasn't just running the heck away from that fight with Vanessa, really...


The attack knocks the wind out a bit, but Kai isn't giving up. When the ground nails her, after Jiro nails her, Kai is picking herself up with a great deal of annoyance. She didn't like to know her fastest attack could be so easily returned. But if that's how he wanted to play. .
The girl closes her eyes, which is well odd and then she drops back and seems to project an image from her being, it looks like Jiro, only it's a purple looking Jiro and he's somewhat see through. The shadow Jiro throws a punch just like he had thrown at her only a moment ago.


COMBATSYS: Jiro endures Gabriel's Mimic.

Gabriel          0/-------/---====|=====--\-------\0             Jiro

After Jiro slams her towards the ground, he immediately pulls back from her. He blinks while she projects an image of him. "What the..." When he sees his own shadow coming at him with the punch, Jiro gives a snarl and he rushes into the path of the incoming punch. Pulling his mind into a very tight position, he is ignoring the sudden pain of his shadow hurting him with its chi based prowess. While he does grunt uncomfortably, the young man draws his fist back, ready to pull forth his own chi.
Dropping into his fighting stance, Jiro is glaring at Gabriel, crouching low. His fists envelop in a violet ball, then he points it straight at Gabriel. Drawing forth from his own chi to deliver a more powerful impact, Jiro launches himself straight towards Gabriel.
The fist expands off, tilted invertedly to strike towards her stomach. The impact should have her sent flying towards the other end of the arena. ... With people moving out of the way, of course.

COMBATSYS: Gabriel interrupts Exploder Knuckle from Jiro with Serpent Snap.

Gabriel          0/-------/-======|=======\=------\1             Jiro

When Jiro comes in, Gabriel seems ready for him. She lifts and hand and gives a slight twist to send the attack breaking off her shoulder. Some of her rather expensive outfit on her left side take a tear and send some threads into the air.

Meanwhile her other hand thrusts out toward Jiro to nail him with a palm strike, accompanied with a burst of energy. Though it looks like the attack on her hurt more than she hit him, but she's still giving Jiro a faint tight lipped smile.

After getting smacked lopsided for the hand striking him to his chest, the young man grunts while he's taking a few steps away from Gabriel. "...Damnit." He snorts, shaking his head with a laugh. "...Not bad... Not bad at all."
The young man is pulled down momentarily, but he seeks to get his revenge by coming towards Gabriel. He's aiming to have his right arm out to strike her at the neck area. He's hoping to take her down with a clothesline.

COMBATSYS: Gabriel fails to interrupt Strong Punch from Jiro with Serpent Coil.

Gabriel          0/-------/=======|=======\=------\1             Jiro

Second time the charm? Well not after succeeding the first. This time Jiro manages to connect and he connects hard. Gabriel clearly is trying to knock aside the attack and send one of her own, but instead she gets hit straight on and set down on the ground with a hard smack. For the moment she just curls there, stunned.

After clotheslining the hell out of Gabriel, Jiro immediately turns around to face the young girl. Turning to watch her lying on the ground, Jiro tucks both of his hands into his pocket, dropping into his stance once more. He is usually the aggressive one, so he knows that he has to keep on going with the aggressive strikes. And as he moves straight towards Gabriel, Jiro is leaping into the air.
With the foot drawn into the sky, there is a brief gleaming spark. His head cocks up as he stares down at her, then he comes down with the foot coming forth like an axe. The impact is aiming to crush her towards the ground, however.

COMBATSYS: Jiro successfully hits Gabriel with Guillotine Kick.

Gabriel          1/-----==/=======|=======\==-----\1             Jiro

Geeze, Gabriel is just taking a beating. Though she tries to get out of the way, the kick comes right down on her head. She's practically flattened by it. Though it's not the end of the world, When she's down there, breathing rather deeply from pain a thought occurs to her.

She'll take a leap of faith. Gabriel bows her head and doesn't actually do anything. Maybe she looks opened, but as she seems to pray a yellow light begins to form and glow around her. It's slow, but intense.

"I promise.. for the future," Gabriel completes with and opens her eyes, the shinning light turning into an intense and hot flash, if anyone was still hanging out nearby.

COMBATSYS: Gabriel successfully hits Jiro with Mirai e no Yakusoku.

Gabriel          0/-------/------=|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2             Jiro

Mimiru has arrived.

After crashing the foot against her head, Jiro is growling at the woman, then he clenches his fist. "Take that." He draws his right hand up, pointing the thumb down in the way of saying, 'It's over'. Unfortunately for the Stray Dog, he notices that she's becoming engulfed with a shining light. As her body is generating a powerful force of energy, Jiro is screaming in pain. "Arrrgghhhhhhhh!"
He is feeling heavily drained.... However, he isn't going to give up. He will be stronger... He will be stronger... He will be more powerful. Jiro tightens his fist, then he makes his way towards Gabriel.
While the fans continue to cheer the fight on, Jiro is aiming to drawhis fist upward towards Gabriel, as if to knock her up.

COMBATSYS: Gabriel blocks Jiro's Rhino Ravager.

Gabriel          0/-------/---====|====---\-------\0             Jiro

Like a rhino, Jiro is aiming to continue on with his strikes, especially as he is slamming his fists out towards Gabriel. The fists start flying towards her stomach, the face, and back to the stomach, including the strong elbow. Unfortunately, he can't seem to aim his grab.

Well, his voice may be lost among the crowd, now that this fight is so close, but Alma is really getting into it. Grinning hugely, he winces dramatically at all the appropriate moments, flipping his sign around every which way. "What fighting spirits! Alright, you guys!"
Possibly of note is that he is one of the few, if not the only, that does not shield his eyes from Gabriel's holy light attack.

This punch looks like bad news, so Gabriel does her best to not be hit with it. She crosses her arms and digs her feet into the ground as best she can. The punch hurts and she staggers a little more. Breathing becomes hard, her face is just dripping with sweat and every breath costs her just about every bit of energy she has.

Standing up she draws back her palm, "This is.. for your sins.. Reeeepent!"

Second time the charm huh? She makes the energy laced palm strike at Jiro's face in an attempt to finish him off once and for all.

Gabriel          0/-------/---====|=====--\-------\0             Jiro

Such a crowd inside of the mall usually takes someone's attention. In fact, Mimiru couldn't resist and she had to have a look at what exactly was going on. As for Mimiru... Well she looks like she could have been in a much better shape that'S for sure. Her clothes seem a bit dirty and her back is apparently soaked. As if she had fallen on some puddle outside or something. Though the bandages around her forehead and the few little patches in her nostrils mostly make her look like... Well, not too pretty. At least she could still walk straight! And don't you dare stare at her!

"Huh? What's up?" Mimiru asks, trying to get some information from the guys in the back of the crowd but she fails to get any. The girl grimaces and she tries to hop on her toes a bit, hopefully to see above the crowd but alas! She is too small. It merely causes her to wince a bit as she feels some pain in her ribs but aside from that... Looks like she'll have to sneak in the crowd or something!

Alma, however, has seen Mimiru beat up before, and spots her quickly, despite his close watching of the fight, and waves to her with the hand that isn't holding the star-spangled sign that says "Go Emo McAngstFace", still grinning. "Imouto-san, over here!"

If there is one thing that Kain has taught him, it was to control his anger. He was taught to never let his anger consume him, for it will make him a horrible fighter. And the self-training under the guidance of Kain has actually paid off. For Rhino Ravager used to be the attack that was uncontrollable, due to Jiro's rage. However, he has honed his anger down to where he can control what he is able to do.
And the example of the training is when he is noticing the energy laced palm striking out towards his stomach to finish him. The young boy immediately grabs over towards her hand, "-Denied-." He launches forward to give her another knee to the stomach. "If it didn't work once, it's not going to again." And with that, Jiro is drawing her around to give her another go.
"Around and around you go..." His sister will be able to watch what Jiro is doing, given that Jiro is currently swinging Gabriel around. Whence forth the giant swing, Jiro immediately brings Gabriel to his form, hanging her upside down with both legs hung up. Using his other arm to support the weight, Jiro snorts. "Goodbye."
Jiro immediately drops his weight down, pulling off another Jackhammer slam as he thrusts his weight to slam her against her head.

But as Gabriel takes the blow her eyes seem to go practically blank. This wasn't what she expected.. However, as her legs leaden and start to lose their strength, she reminds Jiro of one more thing. Gabriel still has another hand.

"You're.. not very nice.. Jiro-san.. despite,. how hard I try to be your FRIEND!"

And so Gabriel lashes out with her left, doing her best to give a final palm strike at Jiro's nose. Maybe she's trying to break his nose. The last snap of energy is the last thing she has to give and collapses onto her arms after which, unless she gets hit again.

COMBATSYS: Gabriel can no longer fight.

"Tch...You expect me to let you win? This is a match up. I have a reason to compete..." Jiro glares over towards Gabriel. He reaches over towards her final palm strike towards her hand, drawing her close to him enough to where he can yankher up close, "... as much as you do."
"You are a... friend, but this is a match up. That's going to end." Crouching down to a powerful horse stance, Jiro draws his left fist back, "SEI!"
Gathering up his will and strength, the young man immediately follows up with the fist coming out towards her stomach. He's not going to strike her face as he would usually do. But he is aiming to have her sent flying far. "-DO-!" Like a wrecking ball aiming to plow down a building, the metal-knuckled fist is coming out towards Gabriel's stomach, aiming to finally knock her down for the big count.

Mimiru blinks a few times as her gaze wanders off to Alma. He wasn't hard to spot after all, he was pretty tall for japense standards. She heaves a sigh and she strides closer to him, squirming herself through the crowd with a few winces. She glances up at him and grimaces, "What has wonder boy got himself into now?" She asks idly, heaving almost a desperate sigh.

Mimiru turns around a bit and, as if to get a better view of what'S going on, she says, "Well, don't move, I'm gonna try something." She then sneaks up behind Alma and she tries to leap up on his back, if only to push herself up just enough over his shoulder so she can get a good sight of what's going on. That and hear the whole thing that's going on, woot!

"This has.. nothing to do with fighting, this has to do with your attitude.. You might think I'm a twit.. But you treat me like I'm trash.. no matter how hard I try.." Gabriel coughs. She takes the last blow and it really screws up her own recovery. She'll clearly be unable to fight back or even talk for long.
"I'm not going to try.. anymore Jiro.. Next time we meet. . ." Then she passes out.

"Whup!" Alma glances over his shoulder with mild interest, as though noticing something's alighted on his sleeve -- Mimiru doesn't weigh nearly enough to make this guy sway, but he does place his arms underneath her legs helpfully, sort of carrying her piggyback for the remainder of the fight, allowing her to see everything. "It's been close, but it looks like your brother has-- oh, ouch..."
The fighter-model's grin finally disappears, and as Gabriel is announced unconscious, he jogs out onto the field along with the medics, and lets Mimiru down next to her brother. "Nice fight, Jiro," he says, but he doesn't really look over, and he sounds... well, not like he doesn't mean it, but definately distracted. He speaks a few words to the medics, and busies himself with a bit of on-the-spot psychic healing to make sure Kai-san is okay.

"And the victor is.... STRAY DOG!"
At the announcement, the gangs of Gedo and the people let out a cheer, the dogs bark out towards Jiro, and the stray cats just stare.
The Stray Dog looks over towards Gabriel, "You do a lousy job on trying." He grunts viciously, shrugging, "I tried to be nice." Granted, he didn't try any more than she probably did. In fact, Gabriel might of tried harder than he did.
Nevertheless, Jiro is tucking his hands into his pocket, looking at the crowd of people. He grunts, looking at Mimiru, "Yo." Then, he makes his way to walk out of the ring and past the people.
The gathered strays are approaching the young man, with him petting them.

COMBATSYS: Jiro has ended the fight here.

"Leave off," a boy in a black shirt and tie with orange pants says while moving onto the fighting area. The group moves over to Gabriel and do what they can to help her off the ground and take her away. Though one of them does sort of smile to the others.
"Did you see her get angry..? This is perfect, it'll be along time before she questions any of her orders again." They speak as if no one else there matters.. And as though Kai is completely unconscious. She probably is.

Megumi leaves the mall.

Mimiru was expecting her spot to remain steady a bit longer than that. The girl's eyes widen a bit as Alma jogs about and hops off through the crowd. "Heh! Careful with what you're doing!" Mimiru says as she holds on tight to maintain her balance up there.

As Mimiru gets off Alma's back, finally out of the crowd, she blinks a few times and stares at Gabriel, and then her gaze wanders off toward her brother as he wanders off.

'Yo?' Mimiru blinks a few times and she grunts, glaring over Jiro, "Yo!? What's that, yo? That's what you got to say!?" She shouts at him. Mimiru bites her lips and she just seems to build on some nasty thing inside but then... "Urg! I hate it when he does just that!" She shouts, as if to calm herself down seeing how Jiro fades away in the crowd.

"He didn't even comment on my sign," Alma remarks, glancing down at the object still in his left hand. "I s-spent like an hour on this."

Mimiru pats Alma on the back, "Don't worry big guy, you know, Jiro's pretty uneasiness with that kind of things, gotta be more straightfoward. I'm sure he was pretty touched by your sign... I mean, I know I would if I had a fan, heheh."
