SNF 2006.07 - Sand! Hinako vs Sean

Description: Hinako and Sean face off in a SNF battle on the beach in Rio de Janiero. Lots of flying sand and flying people, and the match ends in a rather embarassing victory for Hinako. (Winner: Hinako)

"Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janiero." yawns the announcer, quite tiredly into his megaphone. He was just a middle-aged man with an angry wife and seven screaming kids at home. The highlight of his day was coming out in the sweltering heat to get yelled at by his boss. He longed for the day where god would have someone put a gun to his head and put him out of his misery. Little did he know that one day, he's be hired as an announcer for an american dubbed fighting game where his life would be changed forever.
And speaking of changed lives, this particular area of Brazil is extremely excited, it had been quite a long time since they were able to witness SNF live. Needless to say, because of this, people even far away from this particular area have made their way on down to check it out. The sandy beaches, it's packed. Consession stands are selling out of everything in record time. Hotel rooms are booked. But there's -plenty- of sun, plenty of sand, and plenty of water for two combatants to throw down on today!
One of those combatants, of course, is the hometown hero, Sean Matsuda, and needless to say, he's just seconds away from freaking out. He would have never imagined his first big match would be right here in Brazil, so there's quite a bit of pressure on his shoulders.
He's introduced first, and as such has to push through the massive crowd to head on down to the 'ring' area, and when he finally manages to get free, trips over his own foot and falls face first into the sand, "Augh!" basketball in hand no longer as it rolls down the slope and toward the water.
Ladies and gentlemen- Your HERO! And not long after his opponent is introduced..

"Excuse me! Pardon me!" The crowd ripples as someone too short to be seen over the heads of the spectators tries to make her way through to the beach. Finally she manages to work her way out onto the sand, where the announcer immediately spots her. "And here is our other challenger, Hinako Shijou, from Japan!"
"Eh?" Hinako looks around rapidly, then realizes the situation and waves to the crowd. She doesn't have the hometown advantage, so she doesn't get quite as much cheering as Sean, but at least she managed to avoid a faceplant. Her choice of outfit may help to win over some of the crowd as well. A school uniform doesn't seem all that appropriate for a fight on the beach, so Hinako has swapped it out for a purple one piece bathing suit, with a white wave pattern running down it at an angle. She's also forgone her usual heavy shoes, as they'd just be a liability on the sand. She's still got her hands and fingers taped up, though, and she's done the same with her feet.
Stepping into the area designated for the start of the fight, she turns to face Sean. After slamming her fists together with an impact that sounds far too loud for such a small girl, she gives Sean a formal bow. "I look forward to our fight, and I will do my best!"

Alternate.. Clothing? Sean never even though of anything like that, and considering his gi looks not-so-fun to wear in weather as hot as this, such an idea should have come to mind, right? Apparently not. Naturally there are some chuckles that follow from Seans accident, and as one would expect it's rolled right off of the boys shoulder, he up to his feet and brushes sand off of his face, and not long after that stands-off with Hinako, greeting her with a rather awkward grin, "Huh, schoolgirl fighters are a dime a dozen these days aren't they? Well, I don't mean to be rude, but," fists raised, he throws a couple of jabs and spins around with a lethal-looking snap kick, "Your best isn't going to be enough, you're fighting Sean Matsuda today, baby! You ready? You ready, huh? Eh?"
Falling into the traditional ansatsuken fighting stance with a little extra bounce in his legs, he motions for Hinako to start the match, "You ready? I don't think you're ready!"

Hinako frowns at Sean for moment. "Really now, that's just rude!" She tosses her head back, letting her long hair swing behind her for a moment, then poses dramatically as she thrusts a finger out toward Sean. "I'll show you the true power of a sumo!"
A sandy beach isn't really the best locale for sumo wrestling, but Hinako has a fair bit of experience in using sumo techniques under circumstances that wouldn't occur in an official match. Although bringing the fight close to the water would probably be a good idea. The wet sand should provide better footing than the dry, shifting variety further up. So, why not accomplish this in the most direct manner? "Hyah!" Hinako runs full speed right at Sean, intending to slam into him like a very small locomotive, then keep pushing him all the way down toward the water line. There's no wall to slam him up against, but planting his head in the sand afterwards should provide a similar effect...

Sean             0/-------/---====|===----\-------\0           Hinako

Sean pauses a moment from his spazzing out to actually take a moment and.. Conteplate what he had just said.. Which causes him to drop his stance a little bit and give a nervous little laugh in return, "H.. Hey, it wasn't anything person- SUMO??"
Clearly taken aback by that little revelation, and quite clearly disbelieving, he shakes his head, "But you're so.. i mean you're a..." Well whatever, who is he to say she can't be a sumo? But it's that disbelief that allows him to decide to take on Hinako head to head, easily pushing off the sand and toward Hinako, both bodies slamming into each other, his shoulder into her gut- And first his legs buckle, getting dragged back.
And then he gets the upper hand, with a mightly yell he hefts the girl up into the air, takes a couple of steps -away- from the water, and finally with a small hop, slams her right down onto the hot surface, "HRAAAAAH!"
Unfortunatly he doesn't get much time to celebrate, as he suddenly flops onto his back, holding his shoulder and winces in pain, "A... Ah... GEEZ! What are you made out of??"

"Ooof!" Hinako gets the air momentarily knocked out of her as she gets lifted up into the air, then slammed back into the sand. Picking her up off the ground is pretty tough when she can brace herself but, well... She doesn't weigh all that much, so it's kind of hard for her to deal with being lifted straight up.
Hinako bounces back quickly. That didn't go quite as planned, but no matter. "You see? This is what happens when you underestimate someone! Take this!" Hinako lunges at Sean again, attempting to lift him up off the ground and into a bearhug. This wouldn't be such a bad thing, if it weren't for the bonecracking force in Hinako's arms. "Hyah!" And should she manage to get a hold of Sean, she'll shift one hand down to grab his leg, but the other on his shoulder, and follow up by sharply twisting around, then hurling Sean into the air.

COMBATSYS: Sean blocks Hinako's Strong Throw.

Sean             0/-------/-======|====---\-------\0           Hinako

Sean is going to be feeling that one for a little while that's for sure. But he isn't horrified, or put off or anything like that, the imitation ansatsuken fighter is only more inruiged! "H.. Haha! All right, Hinako, I guess you got me there, but I can afford to make some mistakes on my turf!"
Grappling clearly isn't out of the ordinary for Sean so despite her skill, he decides to keep close anyway while he still has said 'advantage'. Hinako manages to get the bearhug in, and after giving him a rude awakening of her skill -and- her strength, "EGAAAAH!" his high energy proves to be of help here, squirming, twisting and shifting his weight to take some oomph out of the overall technique which finally allows him to twist in the air when thrown up and lands on his feet with a bit of staggering, "E.. Ah.. Ow.." he groans, hugging his own arms for a moment.
And then frowns, "Ok, time to get serious!" Doesn't seem he's lost too much ground yet, so he'll just keep on the offensive, hopping forward and then drops to his knees, which not only sets him up for a quick kick to the ankles, but he kicks up a serious amount of sand as well, making a decent sand-cloud in the process, "Hrah!"

COMBATSYS: Sean successfully hits Hinako with Light Kick.

Sean             0/-------/-======|=====--\-------\0           Hinako

A kick to the ankles? Painful, yes. But with all of Hinako's training to remain on her feet at all costs for sumo wrestling, is she going to let a little thing like that take her down? Not likely! Hinako starts to stumble as Sean's foot slams into her, but she quickly spreads her legs apart, digging her feet into the sand to regain her balance. A little pain is nothing to a true sumo!
Hinako then reaches out for the kneeling Sean, attempting to grab him by the shoulders while he's so conveniently adjusted to her height. If she can grab him, she yanks him up a bit (for maximum impact), then hurls him down and at an angle into the sand with enough force to send him skidding quite some distance.

COMBATSYS: Hinako successfully hits Sean with Kake Nage.

Sean             1/-----==/=======|=======\-------\0           Hinako

Sean didn't quite see that as being an advantage for Hinako... Well, looks like he's going to have to learn the hard way! Suprised by Hinako's quick recovery, he doesn't have enough time to squirm away from the sumo wrestler a second time, lifted up and slammed down once again with enough force to get some wind knocked out of him as he slides along the sand and brings himself closer toward the shoreline, just beyond the halfway point?
"... Geez.. What does this girl eat?" he grumbles to himself as he sits up, and quickly realizes he's not going to be in a good position soon! Undoubtedly Hinako's going to close on him again, so going for a stall tactic, he reaches for a conveniently placed ice-cooler, filled with ice and can upon can of refreshing Diet Pepsi! It's destination? Well, with a spin-around to get a bit of momentum, he launches the thing right at the sumo girl, "HYAH!!"

COMBATSYS: Sean successfully hits Hinako with Large Thrown Object.

Sean             1/----===/=======|=======\==-----\1           Hinako

*WHAM!* The cooler slams right into Hinako, sending her crashing down into the sand, ice flying everywhere, along with a few of the cans of Pepsi. But a few moments later Hinako is lifting the cooler one handed and tossing it aside as she gets back to her feet. "That was dangerous! Someone could have gotten hurt!" Well, Hinako actually /did/ get hurt, but we'll leave that aside...
...Because she certainly wasn't hurt enough to keep her from charging back at Sean. She leaps for him, reaching out her hands to grab him on either side of his head. And if she can manage to snag Sean, Hinako spins around in a complete circle, dragging the Brazilian by his head, before launching him off into the air.

COMBATSYS: Sean blocks Hinako's Gasshou Hineri.

Sean             1/--=====/=======|-------\-------\0           Hinako

Not bad, went just as planned, allowing Sean to get in a little close toward Hinako again, but he freezes in his tracks, not just beause she's holding the thing up with one hand, "............. uh," but then she scolds him right after! "Wh. Hey! I'm not a child or something, besides this is in 'X-treme' Beach fight! It's all for the sake of being X-TREME! Without the 'e', you know? Ha ha- OH SNAP,"
His speech is cut short as the little freight train comes at him again, and the ju jitsu fighter is -ready-! Sort of. He though he was going for a shoulder grapple, so his head's grabbed, but again, he disrupts a lot of that momentum by dragging his feet into the sand, causing yet another big cloud from all the spinning and hes flung up, and somehow shifts him momentum to fly more toward his favor, landing in the sand with a heavy *thump*, "Hhngh! Haha not bad, but you're not gonna beat me by just throwing me around, Hinako! Kick it up a notch!"
What Sean -doesn't- know is that he's talking to one of the spectators on the side-lines.. he's been left a little dizzy..

COMBATSYS: Sean gains composure.

Sean             1/----===/=======|-------\-------\0           Hinako

Well, if Sean is going to look away from her, Hinako's just going to have to take advantage of that, won't she? When the sand settles back down and she sees that her attack wasn't quite as effective as she might have hoped, Hinako prepares to follow up. Sean still needs to take a beating! "Okay, then, take this!"
That shout might give Sean enough time to figure out where Hinako actually is, but she doesn't have time to consider that. She charges straight at her opponent, drawing her arms back so that she can slam her palms into him with full force as soon as she gets in range. In addition to being painful, this should hopefully knock him off balance so that Hinako can hook an arm around his neck and drive him face first into the sand.

COMBATSYS: Sean dodges Hinako's Combo Throw.

Sean             1/----===/=======|-------\-------\0           Hinako

Nope, Sean isn't paying attention, la la la! Don't mind him! Well, actually it'd be in favor of Hinako -too- mind him, but never mind that. While he's squinting his eyes, hand on his forehead as he stares at the just as confused spectator, he doesn't even really -have- to hear the sumos yelling when the crowd is screaming 'Turn a-round! Turn a-round! Turn a-round!' at him, ".. Eh?"
Surely enough he looks over his shoulder, his eyes widen and he doesn't even do anything fancy, he just literally dives off to the side, shoulder first toward the sand so he can easily tumble to his feet, "Oh man that was close.. I almost died!!" he yells, clutching at his chest and.. Well what have we here? A few giant umbrella just laying there waiting to be used? He no weapons expert, but this is a pretty good opportunity to show off so he grabs one, and grins like a maniac, "Now it's gonna get hardcore! No sumo can fend off -this- technique!" he sprints overhead swings, attempting to whack Hinako right over the head with the closed weapon, and hit or miss, it's followed up with a dive forward, thrusting out the weapon like a joust, "Hyah!" and finally, that should set him up for one more move, in which he uses it as a pole vault to send a flying kick to the girl, "Boom shaka laka!!"

COMBATSYS: Hinako interrupts Random Weapon from Sean with Yorigiri.

Sean             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0           Hinako

The umbrella gives Sean a considerable range advantage over Hinako. When she tries to charge at him, she just gets whapped over the head. When she tries to wrench it out of his hands she gets jabbed in the stomach, and the point of the umbrella catches and tears a rip in her bathing suit. "I just bought this!" Her eyes begins to tear up, and she gives Sean an accusing look. "Oh, that's it!"
As Sean polevaults toward her, Hinako leaps toward him, slamming into him in mid-air with all her righteous fury! She drives him into the ground, crashing down on top of him as the two of them dig a furrow into the beach, sending sand flying everywhere.

... Er.. O.. oops. Sean clearly didn't mean to tear at the girls bathing suit, "W.. Wait no, I.. I dind't mean," he starts to sputter. And while the watery-eyes isn't quite as damaging but connects, the mid-air tackle is a whole lot of pain that knocks the air out of him, and not only that, causes his weapon to go flying off to the side, "YEAAAARG- OOF!"
The impact can be heard even over the screaming fans, and that furrow may actually make a suitable grave for Sean! .. However he isn't ready to die yet! "w.. wait.. oh god my back," he groans, "Time out, time out! Hey, uh,"
Oh hey isn't that convenient! Right at that very spot is a rather awesome looking neon blue crazy straw-glasses which he immedietly snatches and sets on his face- Looking quite goofy, obviously, and his hands held up again in a 'time-out' motion, "I can explain! You wouldn't hit a guy with glasses, would you??"

COMBATSYS: Sean takes no action.

Sean             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0           Hinako

Hinako's right arm is already drawing back to deliver a devestating blow when Sean snatches up and puts on the glasses. Still kneeling on top of him, Hinako stares down with a confused expression on her face. "Wh... what are you doing?" She doesn't lower her arm, but some of the tension goes out of the muscles, and it doesn't look like she's immediately about to pound Sean's face in. Indeed, she appears to be at a loss for how to deal with this. This is not a situation which has ever come about in any of her sumo training.

COMBATSYS: Hinako gains composure.

[                  \\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////                ]
Sean             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|==-----\-------\0           Hinako

Sean for a while keeps his hands raised in a defensive position.. Despite Hinako's more 'sportsman-like' manner, he's still uncertain if he'll be saved from certain DOOM. And.. Well wouldn't you know it, he's saved, it's a miracle!! He chuckles nervously, and nods his head, "H.. Hey, keep cool, there's no need to make it all personal, right?" he asks, "Besides, something like this is really easy to fix, check it."
And Sean would presumably reach forward to take hold of the two small flaps of the tear- Assuming he even gets -that- far, nimble fingers would tie it up into a real tiny knot, and with a sharp tug to keep the knot in place, he ends up making an even bigger tear in the process with a loud *SHRIPT* "......."

COMBATSYS: Sean takes no action.

Sean             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|==-----\-------\0           Hinako

There's a long pause as Hinako simply stares, wide-eyed, down at Sean. The rip in her suit now exposes a considerable amount of her stomach, but at least it's nothing that'll have to get the censors involved. That does not, however, make Hinako much happier. More tears in her eyes, she glares down at Sean. "Stop it!"
She leaps to her feet, attempting to drag Sean up with her, so that she can spin the two of them around and around before launching Sean at high speed and a steep angle away from her.

COMBATSYS: Hinako successfully hits Sean with Rebound Throw.

[                        \\\\\\  < >  //////////////                ]
Sean             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|====---\-------\0           Hinako

Sean.. Looks horrified. Well. He sort of almost looks horrified, there's a little bit of interest as well because while his intention wasn't on tearing the suit further (honest!).. Well, the girl's got a nice stomach! "....... uh," the brazillian says. And that's really about all he gets to say before the hand of judgement strikes down upon him.
It's a judgement swift, powerful, and brutal, only a gurgled sputter passes his lips as he's dragged up, spun around more ferociously then before, and at last gets himself a little air-time to ponder why things like this has to happen to him. And even that pondering isn't long as he ends up smashing right through one of the nearby snack-bar windows, the entire upper half of his body buried, and his legs kick a couple of times.... And then goes limp.
And then the crowd is suddenly dead quiet, really seeming unsure how to react to that little fiasco. But then it's all too clear, because it seems Sean is down an out. A bit half-hearted, but Hinako is given cheers a plenty as it looks like Matsuda is no longer able to fight.
And speaking of Matsuda, he dangles helplessly, holding his hands over his head, "... Oh god.. I'm never fighting a girl in a bathing suit again.."

COMBATSYS: Sean takes no action.

Hinako takes a few deep breaths after flinging Sean off into the sky, then blinks as she hears the cheering. She stands up, looking around at the audience. She pauses for a moment, looking down at her ripped bathing suit. Her face goes bright red, and she quickly dashes off to go get changed. This from a girl whose fighting style often ends up flashing her panties at the audience... But this is /different/!

COMBATSYS: Hinako has ended the fight here.
