SNF 2006.07 - For the Children! Yuri vs Frei

Description: The original description planned for this log, 'zomg attak of teh furries' failed to meet MotM's high quality standards, however it does manage to summarize the events of this fight pretty well. (Winner: the Bunny of Rodent Vengeance)

The expansive park outside Seijyun High School is no stranger to fights, especially in a place like Southtown where people are fighting all the time. It's no stranger to official fights either, with Neo League bouts happening all the time, and a proud history of SNF bouts here as well. There's enough wide-open spaces that the general enjoyment of the park by the public isn't really disturbed by passers-by.

Usually, however, the organizers clear the issue with the city first.

A sea of fresh young faces swarms through the park like a human tide this fine July afternoon as countless Japanese schoolchildren take part in a cross-district picnic and festival, part of a summer celebration to get them out and about. Blankets and booths are everywhere, practically crowding out the green grass as children, teachers, and parents wander about enjoying themselves, eating, and having a blast.

Understandably, the SNF technicians were a little stymied when they showed up to set up the cordoned fight area and get the TV camera rolling.

However, Geese Howard's employees are nothing if not inventive. Talk with some of the parents and teachers got some space cleared for setup. However, the slight matter of the fact that there's going to be a fight going on here... well...

"So, that's the story," explains the line producer, currently chatting with a normally-attired Frei Tsukitomi-Renard, who showed up plenty early (as usual). The poor producer is grinning like a fool, probably because she expects this entire affair to collapse any minute now. Fighters are prideful people. There's no way they'll agree to this fiasco. And then Geese will ask to see her in his office, and things are just going to go downhill after that. Pulling the monk aside, she opens the back door of the SNF crew's van and points inside. "We got them on loan from the Seijyun drama club's costume department. You can, uh... pick which one you like."

Frei, for his part, peers inside the darkened van... and then busts out laughing like a lunatic. "Oh MAN." Grinning, he crawls inside and closes the door behind him.

"Oh, hey, you're that Yuri lady! Can we get some autographs! Please! Pleeeease!?"

While trying to make her way from the outskirs to the park's center, she's accosted once, then again - then basically mobbed. However, none of the mobbers seem to come up to more than waist-height. She's a bit confused by the Ambush of the Eight-Year Olds, but she recovers with aplomb, singing off on pieces of paper, rolled up posters, and what-have-you is lined up around. This isn't the oddest thing she's had to do to get ready for a fight, and really, it's good for warming up the hands. Right?

When she tries to pass the swingset... That's when the odd things start up. "Miss Sakazaki? Can we get a picture of you pushing a child on the swingset? It would be a wonderful PR shot for this week's fight. 'Good with Children, Great at Fighting'" relatively eager to make a good showing to the public on her return to SNF, well - she'll agree to most anything - and this includes being nice and pushing the overly chubby kid on the swingset, smiling even when he looks up at her with squinty piggy eyes, and goes 'You're gonna fight, huh? Girls can't fight, dad said so!'

For a second, she debates seeing if she can push him hard enough to do a 360 - the snap of a camera click saves her, and she gets to the producer, the van.. and the explination. "... I have to wear a _costume_?!"

So not your day, Yuri. So not your day.

Frei is (perhaps) thankfully not as well-known as Yuri Sakazaki, so he's spared the initial round of autograph-signing and being mobbed by children. Combined with his showing up early, this means he gets to hear the spiel before Yuri can, and thus as his opponent walks up to the back of the van, he opens the door and steps out... a bunny.
The monk is lucky for his relatively short height and slight dimensions, as they're the only reason he's not showing midriff, wrists, and ankles in this getup, a huge, pink faux fur affair complete with round white tummy and immense floppy ears, one of which stands up perfectly while the other is folded forward almost in half. A big round hole for his face reveals the monk to be grinning like a maniac. And of course, no bunny costume would be complete without a giant carrot, seemingly made of Nerf-like material, which he holds by the base of the green stalk like an immense Zweihander.

He has enough time to smile at Yuri and say, "Hi!", before a horde of squealing children come running over out of nowhere and practically LEAP at him, like coyotes on a gazelle. Unable to defend himself, the monk and the children all go down in a heap onto the ground.

"Oh, my... LOOK O... er.. "

Yuri was totally going to warn Frei about the Third Graders of DOOM, but didn't get a chance to before they leapt. She gets out of the way, ducking into the van and peeking out as he's mobbed. Unable to help herself from adding on to his horrible mess, she calls out just before she closes the door and locks it from the inside.

"Hey kids! Look! It's the EASTER BUNNY!"

Sure, it's not Easter. But will that stop the hyped up kids from screaming and going 'Yay!' and charging the poor Frei? From the din outside, well - she thinks not. Mu-hu-wahaha.

Starting to dig around, she finds an excellent wolf-man costume with blue and white fur, with purple pants. This would be excellent to wear to take on the Bunny - after all, predator and prey is appropriate! However, slipping it on, she finds that it's for someone far taller than her, and doesn't fit in the least. As her second choice, well - a cartoon cat's outfit in orange fur, oversized head letting her peek out, and fluffy cat's paws that clutch a stuffed mouse tightly. She exits out, and checks to make sure Frei is still alive!

"Nyaa~~~n! Time to be played with by a kitty!"

Oh, Shingo. You stayed in the OOC Lounge and thus missed your opportunity.

Baffled by the attention, Frei is still a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, and he beams friendly enough at the kids who are currently cutting off his oxygen. "Yes, yes, hello, little ones. No, I don't have eggs for you..." And here he squints to read a nametag. "...Kotarou-kun. Kids, Mr. Bunny would really love it if you stood up before his trachea is crushed, thanks..." the monk squeaks out, running out of air. Reluctantly the kids back off so he can slowly pull himself to his feet, taking big gulps of air. "Better."

Of course, this doesn't stop them from rushing back and latching onto his legs with big kid hugs. Maybe the fake fur is really soft. Frei gives Yuri an apologetic-looking smile. "So, uh... yeah. Shall we get started..." The monk tries to take a step forward and does so with HERCULEAN effort, carrying the three children latched onto his right leg with him in a gigantic, slow goose step. His voice is strained with the effort. "...Neko..." Step with the left. The ring is so tantalizingly close. "..Yuri..." Step. "...*SAN*..."

COMBATSYS: Frei has started a fight here.

Frei             0/-------/-------|


Oh snaps! This is a bad thing, Yuri thinks - she's got to get out of the way and fast. In the full body costume, with kids starting to hang off of her legs, this is not an easy feat. Plush paws pat and paf at some of the kids, ruffling hair and trying to convince them to let her go enough to get away! She gets one paw wrapped around the ring's edge, and she hauls herself up, managing to slide a few kids off of her much like a basketball player might perform the perfect screen play. Whew! Leaning down, she offers the hand over to Frei - after all, she can't let this be a kid-TKO!

"C'moooon, Usagi-san! You have to show all these kids the power of eating your vegtables!"

COMBATSYS: Yuri has joined the fight here.

Frei             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0             Yuri

Look at it this way, Frei: You are totally getting a seriously badass lower body workout right now. Reaching the edge of the arena -- and being way less successful at ditching the kids grabbing on to his legs than Yuri was -- Frei finally bends halfway over and starts patting kids on the head. "Alright now, chilluns... it's time for Mr. Bunny to fight now." Hoping to make sure Yuri doesn't hear him, he stage-whispers, "You don't want to get too close to Neko-san. She has cooties."

The magic word works like a charm. Squealing with either mock fear or delight, the kids run off to their respective blankets to watch, as Frei accepts Yuri's hand up and moves to his side of the arena, adjusting the suit a little and getting into stance. "Sorry about the cooties thing, but it was that or start using the kids as weapons." Grinning, he rushes forward and, with a mighty swing, attempts to put the carrot smackdown right on Yuri's noggin. "And that would make Mr. Carrot totally sad!"

COMBATSYS: Frei successfully hits Yuri with Random Weapon.

Frei             0/-------/-------|=------\-------\0             Yuri


Luckily, that was not the crash of metal on skin, wood on skin, or really, even skin on skin. That was the sound of foam on faux fur! It rattles Yuri's kitty head just a bit, sending it slightly askew, and making her stumble towards the edge of the ring. She falls down next to it, and shakes her head to clear the fuzzy silly sounds and sights that are in there. For a moment, she actually thinks she's fighting Frei, who is dressed up as a bunn... wait.

"Neko! Neko! Kick his butt! You can do it!" Yuri's got a small cheering gallery of girls that are rooting her on - a wish for the females of the species to be more effective in battle - or perhaps just a desire for cartoon violence. While Yuri wants to win - she's willing to play along, at least for now. If they want butt-kicking, that is what Yuri will give!

"Haaaai-yaaaaah!" With that, Yuri tries to get to her feet, trundle behind Frei, and give him the biggest comical Yakuza Kick to the behind that she can!

COMBATSYS: Yuri successfully hits Frei with Medium Kick.
- Power hit! -

[    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////////   ]
Frei             0/-------/----===|==-----\-------\0             Yuri

Apparently the cooties thing bugged Yuri more than she expressed, because when she goes for the big kick to the backside it works much better than she could have hoped. Maybe something subconscious was at work there. Or perhaps... that's just the power COOTIES GIVE YOU.

Either way, Frei tries to twist out of the way and instead of getting a kick to the bunny backside he takes a kitty boot right in the pit of the stomach, which sends him stumbling across the ring JUST in time for him to smack the turnbuckle. With his FACE. The kids, monstrous little bastards that they are, eat up the slapstick comedy with lots of loud laughs.

All except little Kotarou-kun, who puffs out his cheeks and balls his hands into fists. "Come on, Mr. Bunny! Get up!" And that seems to be enough to rouse Frei out of hit stun. He wobbles upright, then gives his one fan a big thumbs up (or tries, as he has no thumbs). Whirling around, he extends both paws at Neko Yuri and unleashes a huge barrage of icy shards! SHAPED LIKE CARROTS.

"BUNNY MISSILE!" Because this sort of thing is obligatory.

COMBATSYS: Yuri fails to reflect Hyoushou Rengeki from Frei with Saiha.

[     \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Frei             0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0             Yuri

Bunny Missle?! Bunny Missle?! Whatever will happen - whatever will the outcome be, from this crazily-named attack?! Yuri sees them coming in, and gets ready to deal with the projectiles the same way she always does. She puts her paws up, and gets ready to project that red-gold shell she uses for defense. As she wills it into being, she realizes the first problem. Her complete paws restrain the field as it pops into existance, slowing it from intercepting the carrot-implements. And oddly, when it _does_ come into existance, it's made up of gold-red kitty pawprints.

In some odd twist of fate, these kitty pawprints have holes inbetween them, all curiously the exact same size as those ice projectiles. They all find home through the chinks in her armor, and send her back into the ropes as well! Augh! Trying to compose herself, she puts her kitty paws over her head, and mimes cleaning behind her 'ears'.

"You'll have to do better than that, Nyaaa~~~~n!"

Blinking, Frei stares as Yuri's shield pops into being in a rather... unorthodox manner. As a scholar of chi, he actually finds that pretty impressive, mainly because the look on her face all but says '...I MEANT to do that!'. Still, there's no time for surprise. He knows Yuri Sakazaki isn't going to be taken down by that attack, and her response proves it. The children are sharply divided, too... but also in awe now that the chi-based special effects have come into play.

"Hehe... I hope not! Time to take this to the next level!" Frei says chirpily, before... turning and leaping over the ropes and running down through the crowd, dodging children left and right. "Catch me if you can!" He runs toward a swingset where kids are happily swaying back and forth, then turns around and makes faces at Yuri, swinging the carrot wildly. Of course, what the kids can't see that she probably can is Frei using the opportunity to get his energy level up. He's gonna need it!

COMBATSYS: Frei gathers his will.

[     \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  /////////////////////         ]
Frei             1/------=/=======|====---\-------\0             Yuri

"Get him! Chase him! You can get him, right?!"

When Frei leaps away, the crowds look between him and Yuri. Will Yuri stay within the safety of the ring and await Frei's return, or will she make all the kids happy with a show of agility and energy that feeds into the silliness that he's already doing?


"You can't stay away from me, Usagi-nyaaaa~~~n!" With that, she tucks the string of her foam mouse in her teeth, then gets down on all fours in the ring, wriggles her 'tail' and leaps! Up above the turnbuckle, landing onto it for another spring outwards, landing amoungst the now-cheering children. In a flash, she scampers through the grass towards Frei, leaping out at him with her paws outstretched! If she can catch him, well - she's going to tumble him around like a ball of yarn, then chuck him aside!

COMBATSYS: Frei blocks Yuri's Silent Nage.

[      \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////////          ]
Frei             1/-----==/=======|=====--\-------\0             Yuri

If nothing else, these two are a crowd pleaser. Frei is prepared for Yuri's attack, at least, but there's only so much you can do in these costumes. He oofs! as the kittylady snags him and they go for a roll in the hay^H^H^Hgrass, the monk getting a little dizzy as the world goes all green and spinny. However, the throwing aside part doesn't work exactly as intended; as Yuri lets go the monk rolls to the side and springs upward, even making a nice loud "BOING!" sound effect as he does so. Which is to say, when he jumps, he says "BOING!" really loudly.

Landing on the opposite side of the swingset from Yuri, he grins at her. "Not bad, but you've got to be quicker to catch a bunny!" He looks down to find a child on the swings heading back toward him and, getting an idea, reaches out to snag the swing. "You wanna help out Mr. Bunny, kiddo?" he asks, and squealing with glee, the kid in the swing agrees. "Alright. Just push out your legs and hang on tight!"

With a mighty shove, the monk sends the swing sailing forward at speed, aiming the kid's dutifully-outstretched feet right at Neko Yuri! And once the kid gets close, Frei snaps his fingers, making a sudden tongue of crimson fire pop up in the wake of the kid's swing! Oh, how he's going to be the envy of everybody at school this week.

The line producer, meanwhile, senses the potential lawsuit and grabs her assistant by the lapel. "Rolaids," she grits. "NOW."

COMBATSYS: Yuri reflects Kouen no Tsurugi from Frei with Saiha.

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Frei             1/---====/=======|======-\-------\0             Yuri

Dutifully outstretched feet coming for her! Yuri is in a conundrum, a quandry, a ... well, fight! She shouldn't be thinking about it! She should be doing! Normally, said doing would be to bounce the attack right back at her opponent, but it's a kid. FREI THREW A KID AT HER! She just stares at him a moment - does he expect her to just take the kick to make sure he doesn't get hurt?!

Luckily, the burst of flame and the requisite thrust that that provides gives her a perfect out, and a great idea. If the kid is happy about being swung, he's going to get even more going on! She goes into a limbo stance as those feet come swinging, feet swinging a centimeter above her frame as she does. Her hands come up, and chi flares out - shaped into her Saiha, but positioned differently - to catch that flame, and turn it into motion! With a surprised yell of delight, the kid goes up... and up...

And .. OVER! Those small feet are headed for Frei's back now, with Yuri having a smile on her face like.. well.. like the cat that ate the canary!

In actuality, Frei is just left stunned by Yuri's display of ingenuity. In fact, this is half of the reason her gambit works in the first place: he's so busy admiring her handiwork that he doesn't notice the kid coming BACK down from above, and gets two 3rd-grade bootprints right in the back of his noggin as the 360 comes to a stop. "Ow!" It didn't really hurt much, but still... sort of stung. "Heh. I have to admit, Neko-san, that was a pretty cool trick." Meanwhile the kid on the swing starts slowing to a stop rather than continue around in a circle, much to the producer's relief.

That does leave Frei with the ball, so to speak, however, and he has to keep the momentum up if they're going to find this interesting. "Think fast!" he singsongs, before hurling his carrot at her like a javelin. "CARROTDOUKEN!" Oh, Sakura is going to wring Frei's NECK. But the covering shot at least gives the bunny time to turn and run toward another playground favorite, the spinning disc thingy with the handles. "Try to keep up, Neko-san!"

COMBATSYS: Frei successfully hits Yuri with Large Thrown Object.

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////////              ]
Frei             1/--=====/=======|=======\-------\1             Yuri


This is getting a little silly! Yuri is eating foam far too much this fight! However, she's pretty lucky that it's still foam and nothing heavy. Otherwise, this fight might already been over!

She catches the carrot as it falls from her nose, both props in her hands now. She starts after him, then breaks into a sprint, trying to get near enough to make an attack. When she realizes she can't, she huffs and puffs, puts her hands on her knees, and kneels forwards. She's instantly surrounded by kids again, and she starts whispering with them, plotting and planning! Frei will not know what hits him, when she and her kid think-tank get through with him! Mweh-heh-heh!

COMBATSYS: Yuri gains composure.

[         \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Frei             1/--=====/=======|======-\-------\0             Yuri

Now that's flat-out cheating, is what that is.

Turning around and expecting to find Yuri hot on his heels, he instead finds her in a powwow with a bunch of rugrats. Blinking, the monk takes a couple steps forward... but doesn't get too close. Because you know how they say kids can be cruel, devious bastards? Frei was probably one of the kids that made that statement popular. Grinning, he hops up and down in place and looks around to the kids who HAVEN'T run over. "Come on, you guys! We can't quit now! Help me out a little, here! Lend me your strength!"

Frei's just... not quite as popular. After all, kids love an underdog. But slowly and surely, a few start to come over. Maybe they're the misfits... the kids that don't get along with the others. And they realize this weird man in the bunny suit... there's a chord, there. He's weird too. And he thinks it's okay for you to be a little different. That's right... GEEK RESONANCE occurs. Surrounded by the nerds and the dorks and the weirdos, Frei grins at Yuri, throwing his arms to the side and summoning up a nice lightshow of spiffy, rainbow-colored chi. "We can take whatever you can dish out!"

COMBATSYS: Frei gathers his will.

[        \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////            ]
Frei             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|======-\-------\0             Yuri

Oh, so _that's_ how it is? He's going to draw power from the children of the world, and hit her around with it? Two can play that game, and Yuri is nothing if not able to do what other people do! She psyches the kids up around her with a flurry of hair ruffling and pats to the head. "Okay! Let's show him what he's in for!"

She rushes him again, but she doesn't attack - at least, not at first. In an effort to keep her feet up above the kids, and not to smack them around, she leaps _over_ him, and latches her hands onto the merry-go-round he was going for originally. Momentum takes her around, and her feet come back in at him as she does so! "KITTYCAT SLIDE!!!" she shouts, because.. er.. it sounds cool?

COMBATSYS: Frei blocks Yuri's Strong Kick.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////           ]
Frei             2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|======-\-------\0             Yuri

Frei's eyes practically *glint*.

"Ha!" he shouts triumphantly, spinning just in time to block Yuri's *very* powerful kick attack with a raised forearm. "I've got you just where I want you!" And it's true. The force of that little maneuver put some serious hurting potential on Yuri's attack... but now she's stuck on a spinning merry-go-round. Frei's hands are already glowing pretty prismatic colors. "I hope you brought some Dramamine, pretty kitty! Time to say goodnight!"

Throwing both paws forward, Frei summons all of his power and -- making sure the kids are clear -- DETONATES the burst of multi-elemental chi just as Yuri draws near. If it hits her? Super keen! If it doesn't? The rippling shockwave of the burst is going to make that merry-go-round spin HELLA fast... and that alone might be enough to cause Neko Yuri some serious harm, gastrointestinally speaking.

Gleeful at the special shiny effects, all the kids at Frei's feet suddenly throw their palms out too, in mimickry. D'aww.

COMBATSYS: Yuri endures Frei's Fukami Reikai EX.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////                  ]
Frei             0/-------/---====|=======\==-----\1             Yuri

Dramamine? DramaYOURMOM!

Okay, well - Yuri would maybe say that if she were able, but right now she is dizzy, and buffeted by a blast of elemental chi that threatens to rock her off the merry go round. But, with the power of her cheering section, she manages to stay on the thing, albeit she's now very very dizzy, and her eyes, were they as cartoony as her costume, would be all aspin. As the playground equipment comes to a close, she wobbles and makes a production of holding her head and rocking back and forth. Building up the curiosity and enthusiasm of the kids - will she lose her lunch? Won't she?! WHO KNOWS!

Yuri does! She looks vaguely green as she faces Frei, and her smile grows wide where the kids can't see - here's a wink for the other fighter, Yuri finally having gotten into the joy of just having fun.. Time to let him know she's in on it too... "I don't feel so goo... goo... BLARGGGGH SHO KO KEN!"

She fakes something akin to projectile vomiting, with her hands over her mouth - the 'vomit', however - is pure red-gold chi, just like a firework, a colorful explosion to fit into the comedy of the fight. If it hits, if it doesn't hit - it doesn't really matter! The cheers of the kids around are enough, today!

COMBATSYS: Frei endures Yuri's Haoh Sho Ko Ken.

[                \\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////                  ]
Frei             1/-------/=======|==-----\-------\0             Yuri

Well, Frei had hoped that said attack would take Yuri out of the fight, maye, but even he knew that wasn't going to be enough to take her down. What he was NOT expecting was that she was going to turn the entire affair to her advantage and send an attack sailing back at him at the Speed of WHOAMG. However, Frei doesn't panic. He gives the APPEARANCE of panic, but he doesn't panic, as a whole. What he does do is quietly tell the kids around his feet, "Y'all might wanna run." It might be the tone of his voice, but the kids do as they're told, running around like chickens with their heads Haoushokouken'ed off.

Realizing there's nowhere he can GO without putting kids in danger of being chi blasted into next week, Frei does the only thing he can do: He charges himself up with silvery energy to counter Yuri's fiery yang and then just... dives into the projectile headfirst. The result? A bigass cloud of smoke and steam that obscures Bunny Frei from view. Kids gasp! Parents gasp!

Right up to the point that a huge golden lance of energy comes flying out of the cloud, blowing it to the sides and revealing a hurt but not out Frei grinning like a madman. "BUNNY BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAM!" XD

COMBATSYS: Yuri slows Hizashi Ronde from Frei with Large Thrown Object.

Frei             0/-------/-------|====---\-------\0             Yuri


Yuri whips her hands up, still managing to have those two plush items around. She puts them in the way of the chi-blast, deflecting and warping most of it's energy. The rest, sadly, hits her, making her stagger away, into the nearby jungle-gym. She's stuck there for a moment, arms and legs akimbo, twisting enough so that the fake tail lashes about just like a very tired and agitated kitty.

She eventually recovers, and then crawls upwards, getting to the top and taking a pose atop of the gym, one hand pointed towards the bunny, yelling out to the crowd, to hype them up even more!

"Mister Bunny! You may be beating your kitty opponent, but you can never beat true Kittyness with your silly carrots! Come on and show me what you really have to offer! Today is the day that the Kitten will make you the Cat's Meow!" Again, she moves to clean her ear, and then she perches on the edge of the gym and awaits his attack! Nyaaa~~~~~n!

Neko Negation. Oh man, the kids are eating this up. Any imbalance in the fanbase has clearly been done away with by Yuri and Frei's performance. Both fighters have kids on all sides of the park cheering from them now. Hell, even the parents and teachers are getting into it. If Geese picked these two for this job at random, he is certainly getting his money's worth out of it.

"HA!" Frei bellows, pointpointPOINTing at Yuri with his paw. "Today I strike back for bunnies everywhere, terrorized by big furry predators. That's right... this isn't just for bunnies. It's for the mice! It's for the gerbils! IF I LOSE TODAY, HOW CAN I EVER CELEBRATE EASTER AGAIN?!" Bouncing around like Tigger on crack, Frei meanders his way to the jungle gym and then throws out both hands, detonating a big multicolored chi firework right at Miss Kitty. "BUNNY BLAAAAAAAAAAAAST!" XD

COMBATSYS: Yuri fails to reflect Hizashi from Frei with Saiha.

"For the mice?! I'll eat 'em! For the gerbils, I'll play with 'em, and *then* eat 'em! You're lower on the food chain! You're *mine*, Mister Bunny! Easter is DOOOMED!!" Confident and strutting as Frei bellows at her, she's bracing herself and then leaping right at him as he closes, paws outstretched!

The cheers of the kids are only magnified when Frei's explosion occurs, Yuri throwing up her own golden sphere to intercept. The resulting blow back keeps her momentum up, and sends her flying into a nearby tree with a smash and a crash! No movement for a moment, for two... Everything quiets down as the kids start to wonder if something _might_ be wrong...

And from within the tree, a paw comes out with an accusing finger! Yuri's voice can be heard from the branches, calling out. "Perhaps today, Mister Bunny! But only for today! Your time will come, and when it does, Yuri Nekozaki will be the one to give it... to... Nyaaaaaaaaa~~~~~n!"

The arm slumps... and the kids cheer! They all run right for Frei to celebrate. And cling. And grab. When you think about it... who *really* won today?

Lowering his hands, Frei the Bunny of Rodent Vengeance regards Yuri's final comment with solemnity. "You fought bravely, Neko-san. I will always remem--"

And then he's cut off by a huge swarm of children mobbing him. There is no defense; he simply gets taken down in a storm of school uniforms and giggling rugrats, cheering. Teachers and parents are actually applauding. And no small number of kids -- especially little girls -- are heading to the tree where Yuri was last seen, looking up with concern. "Are you okay?!" "That wasn't fair! Kitties are better!" "Can I have your autograph?!"

And with that pastoral tableau this SNF bout comes to a close, with the camera tracking out to reveal Yuri's limp hand hanging out of an oak tree, while Frei's hand emerges from a giggling crowd of schoolchildren like a drowning man's last gasp to be saved. Good fight, good night!
