SNF 2006.09 - Drama! Hinako/Sean vs Yamazaki

Description: Sean makes a very misguided attempt to apologize for the outcome of Sean and Hinako's previous meeting. Then Yamazaki proceeds to tear things up, although the kids won't go down without a fight. (Winner: Yamazaki)

Oh SNAP, son!!! Is this another Saturday Night Fight match-up? You bet your cutie patootie's, kiddies. And this match is like NONE other, in fact many people may recall what happened in the very first episode of Matsudapiece Theatre. And that, in fact, is exactly why there is a large mass of folks about that are actually really interested in this particular match-up.
THE PARK. What do you want, it's a park man, but the particular area cut off for fightings is a reasonably large chunk of space, that's actually toward the edge rather than the dead center; there's a big ol' black gate on the left, plenty of tree's scattered about, frisbee's trash cans and benches near the gravel path that leads to the exit. And to top it off it's a brisk, sunny day. It's a good day for fighting, heck there's even a V.i.P. guess table set up around somewhere with a lonely microphone waiting for some hot audio action.
The first person to show up, who actually had meant to show up -early-, is Sean Matsuda, clad in tan-brown slacks and vest, with a yellow button-up dress-shirt underneath, naturally with the sleeves torn off. Away are the fighting gloves that are replaced with brown leather gloves, and he's looking left and right for his partner. Well you know how it goes, better to make amends late than never, and he apparently plots to do this with the large white box that's tucked under his arm.

For her part, Hinako hasn't dressed up for the event. She's wearing one of her usual purple dresses, with matching kneepads and beret. If she wore something /nice/ than Sean might just rip it up again. She walks into the park, looking around for the area set up for the fight. Thankfully the crowd and the equipment make it pretty easy to notice, so she quickly makes her way over there. She doesn't know much about Yamazaki, but she does certainly know something about her 'partner' for this match.
Hinako narrows her eyes when she spies Sean, and then she pointedly doesn't look in his direction as she approaches the fighting area. She crosses her arms, looking away as she waits for the fight to begin. Her sumo pride won't let her turn down a match, but that doesn't mean she has to be happy about who she's been set up with.

As is typical for the two kids' opponent, he's fashionably late. It's time to fight, and he's nowhere to be seen. The crowds have gathered, two of the three participants are here, and they're ready to start, which means that's right about the cue. Somewhere in the back of the crowd, a car starts to lay on its horn. At first, no one pays attention, but when the car pulls right up to the crowd, they start to part like a wave. The honking continues as the crowd parts further and further towards the middle of the designated section of the park, up until what reveals itself as a black Lincoln town car pulls right up to the black gate. Sure, it might not be a real road, but the car fit just fine. A nicely-dressed driver gets out of his seat, walking around the back-right to open that door. A few more moments pass before Ryuji Yamazaki steps out of the car and stands himself up straight.

There's a momentary look of disappointment on his face. "Kids?" That's quickly wiped out by some sort of an odd smirk/sneer hybrid. "Whatever. It'll help take the rust off. At least there's two of 'em." The white fur coat is taken off his shoulders by the driver, and Ryuji slips both hands into his pockets. A black lighter and a pack of cigarettes are taken out. One cigarette is slipped free, and the rest of the pack is put away as Yamazaki lights his pre-fight cigarette and starts to walk around into the area that's been portioned off for the participants.

Kim's training session today was sullen. His spirit, full of passionate sorrow. The hours of honing his body, mind and spirit were akin to a sad, sad panda. Why? Well...
... Kim's JUSTICE would not be participating in this week's SNF!!
... Not as a fighter, at least. No. No... Kim's duty was something greater. Something that, while full of prestige, was no less disheartening to the man's amazing fighting spirit! Alas, the teeth ping of joy did wane today, for it is Kim's most solemn duty...
... to be a guest host.
As with most things in his life, though, Kim eventually saw the good things of this and came to accept it! And as such, when Kim arrives, he arrives with a mighty "HUUUUUUUUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!" Against the backdrop of the shining sun, a single brilliant figure soars through the air in an amazing, almost DIVINE jump kick! His grin inspiring the masses to take their lives and do something good with it! Or, in some cases, blinding them through the sheer intensity! But, as he soars, he lands DIRECTLY between Sean, Hinako and Yamazaki in a crouch, head bowed and overshadowed. All is silent. All is quiet. Until...
Kim spins around to the crowd, presenting the most powerful of thumbs up known in human history. "Is everyone ready to fight with every ounce of passion in their bodies?!!?"
Truly a glorious moment indeed.

Late? Well, that does more or less work into Sean's favor, since he -does- have business to take care of. Though you know, sometimes the most difficult part of apologizing, is getting things started, so when Hinako arrives.. And then just promptly turns her back to him, her cringes and slumps a bit, looking like a damn fool.
But then what's this, it's KIM to the rescue!!! And his entrance is SO powerful that one of the younger fans who was holding up a disposable camera to take the korean hero's picture abruptly goes flying back when his camera explodes from the sheer volume of awesome, "WAUGH!"
The rest are cheers, suddenly the crowd is even more pumped than before, and Sean is suddenly looking more inspired! "Yes!!" the 'hit-man' replies, though he then takes the microphone from Kim's hands, "But! But before I start this grand battle, I would like to say something, if I may. I am 'Mister' Sean Matsuda, and I'm sure all of you recall what happened in my very first episode of 'Matsudapiece Theatre'. I.. I performed a horrible, horrible wrong, and I just." light sigh, "I wish to make amends right now, Hinako." he takes slow, almost dramatic steps toward Hinako, and he offers to her the slender but long box under his arm, "I am truely, -truely- sorry for that.. Um.. Incident in our first match. It was an accident, and I um.. I hope that you accept this gift as my apology." another pause, and he leans forwar further, ".. Please."

Hinako keeps her back to Sean up until he grabs the microphone, but when he begins speaking and it's clear that he's speaking to her, she turns slightly to watch him out of the corner of her eye. As he continues she turns to face him directly, looking at him suspiciously. But... He /does/ seem to be pretty sincere. And Hinako is, at heart, a nice girl, and not one to really hold grudges. "Wellllll..."
Uncrossing her arms, Hinako takes a few steps toward Sean. "Okay, I guess so. If you're really sorry." She still doesn't look /completely/ convinced, but seems at least willing to give Sean the benefit of the doubt for the moment. She reaches out and accepts the long box, opening it up to see what it contains...

As a good, long drag is taken from the cigarette, Yamazaki looks over towards one of the speakers with a slightly uplifted eyebrow. .. wait, what the hell? This isn't what he came here for. This is a load of horse crap. The cigarette is shifted over into his right hand, and his left hand is slipped into its pocket. "Alright, time to put a goddamn stop to this." One step is taken forward, and his left hand snaps right out of its pocket. One of the switchblades is resting in his palm, and halfway between him and his target, the blade slips out, just in time for it to slice right through the microphone wire. Just as quickly, that same hand shoots back to his side. "The goddamn love-in is over, put up yer goddamn dukes."

Yamazaki is not a patient man, by any means, and this becomes apparently when the switchblade snaps closed. It remains in his hand, though... just before that arm goes limp. He starts to lean into that direction, shoulder dropping down while that lifeless arm dangles like a sack of meat... "Let's go!" And just as quickly as that arm started to dangle, it snaps back into motion again. The knife-packed fist snaps right up, leather-clad knuckles aiming to crack right across Sean's face.

COMBATSYS: Yamazaki focuses on his next action.

"I'm sure you're all excited to be here as I am--" Wha-- someone just jacked Kim's mic! Brown eyes dart over to the scene of the crime, where Sean seems to be using it to... make ammends!? Kim's surprised, stern face begins to soften, his eyes watering just a touch. This... this is truly a touching moment!! Kaphwan takes a step forward, a hand slapping and holding on to Sean's shoulder. Meaningfully. The Korean Tae Kwon Do nods to the Ansatsuken trainee, his stern eyes filled with /respect/. "You are a strong soul... Sean Matsuda!! The power of friendship can conquer anything!"
Even knife-wielding homicidal mobsters. Kim's intense stare moves to Yamazaki, giving him a long, silent look. "..." He knows this man. He's heard of him and more importantly, he's seen him in action. That's why he knows this will be an intense fight to test the souls of these two young fighters. Absent-mindedly, Kim swipes the mic back, beginning to walk away from the 'stage,' such as it is. "Everyone, give it your all!" He leans in to Hinako and Sean, whispering, "I'll be rooting for you." Before LEAPING in the air, away from the fight -- just as Yamazaki prepares that sucker punch. Ouch. MAY JUSTICE BE ON YOUR SIDE, SEAN.

COMBATSYS: Yamazaki successfully hits Sean with Snake Tamer.

Wow and would you look at that, Sean is even backed up by the very might of justice himself! Really, how cool is that, huh? Sean looks a little more proud of himself, and he nods to the older man, "You think so? You know, I think you're right, thank you!" Sean beams. He had a feeling that today, oh today things were going to go his way for SURE. Just. YEAH! Another nod is given to Hinako, and when the box is opened inside are neon yellow triangles attached to strings. Or, if one were to take a closer look, it is actually a two piece bikini and uh, it's kinda small. And stringy. And neon yellow. Plus along with it is a bottle of a very good name brand of tanning oil, it's good stuff! And Sean grins, "Yeah see, with -that-, there's a waaay less chance of anything getting torn up, see? And not only that, it's the number one designer down in Brazil, so your friends will be hella jealo- BLAUGH!"
Clearly Sean wasn't expecting that fist. No sir, not at all, the Brazillian sees the shadow, and then he sees complete white, then black, then white and some stars. He's carried a bit upward, twirls in the air and then crashes flat onto his stomach, thrown for a complete loop.
Ladies and gentleman, YAMAZAKI HAS KILLED SEA-
"OOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!" Oh he's not dead! Sean manages to get to his hands and knees, a nice big shiner on the right side of his face that he cups with his hand, "Hey man what the heck are you doing??" Yeah, it is time to power up and rock this guys face. With his foot! .. In a moment.

COMBATSYS: Sean focuses on his next action.

Hinako opens the box. And stares. And stares. And stares some more. And continues to stare. Her face is also rapidly taking on a strong shade of red as her hands convulsively crush the sides of the box. She doesn't even look up as Yamazaki's fist slams into Sean's face and the Brazilian goes flying away from her.
The blonde girl's eyebrows twitch as she wrestles internally. An honorable sumo would not break every bone in her partner's body. An honorable sumo would not wrench his limbs from their sockets. An honorable sumo would assume that he's just a complete moron. An honorable sumo and a dignified lady would be polite, even under extreme circumstances. Still momentarily heedless of Yamazaki's presence, Hinako carefully puts the box to the side, then turns jerkily around to face Sean. "Thank. You. Very. /Much./ Mr. Matsuda." Every word is strained out between gritted teeth and an extremely forced smile that doesn't even come close to reaching her eyes. Don'tkillSeandon'tkillSeandon'tkillSean... Well, there /is/ somebody she can take her anger out on...
Snapping around with remarkably quickness, Hinako nearly leaps up to grab Yamazaki. If she can grab a hold of him, she's intending to drag him across the ground, plow him right through one of those park benches, then slam him into one of the concrete reinforced trash cans, which may or may not survive the impact.

Perhaps... perhaps, just this once...
"I may have made a mistake."
Kim Kaphwan says this aloud as he stares at Sean's 'present' for Hinako, blinking very slowly. Well, now. That was unexpected. Even moreso is the vicious punch that Yamazaki delivers so ferociously. It causes Kim to wince inwardly as it connects, settling back into place amongst the audience as he watches. Hopefully, Sean and Hinako can work out their differences. If not, well... Kim is not allowed to involve himself in the fight, unfortunate as it may be. So he'll simply have to watch and wait.
Watch and wait as Hinako leaps towards Yamazaki with repressed anger. Now there's some power! Kim smiles a little, nodding to himself. They should be fine. Should be. They're both valiant kids, he can tell! Well.
Maybe not Sean so much.
Definitely not Sean so much.

The Yakuza enforcer has to fight back a giggle. Looking at the woman that Sean is dealing with, and the gift he just gave.. man, even he knows better, and most of his dealings with women tend to be 'Hey, where's my money?'. It was hard for him to resist that Snake Tamer, though, perfectly timed as it was, and Yamazaki /almost/ looks apologetic as Sean starts getting confused about what's going on. Almost. But it's hard for him to fake emotions like that, so he just smirks in response. "It's a fight. The hell are you, blind?" He brushes his hands off, just a moment before Miss Repressed Anger Sumo comes barreling right at him.

Oh, he wouldn't deny that she's quick. But, that little something inside Yamazaki's head tells him to just brace himself. And so he does, digging his heels into the concrete and sticking both hands into his pockets. He tilts his entire body in towards the charging sumo, aaaaand.. sticks his tongue out. His jaw goes slack, and he just starts waggling his tongue right at Hinako. Not visible, however, is the coalescing purple smoke that's starting to gather around Yamazaki's left hand. As soon as her hands smack against his chest, that left hand darts out of its pocket, and all that purple vapor forms into a spike-like shape. He throws his weight against the girl's, and drives that gaseous dagger right into her gut.

Who what what who where what who? Why is everything blurry man?? Sean is grasping that shiner like woah and he is forced to wonder if it is -legal- for someone to be punching people that hard, he damn near lost his jaw, is.. Is that blood coming out of his mouth?? "Aaaaah!"
Sean jumps to his feet, tapping his loafers on the grass, though a painful grin is forced to Hinako, giving the woman a big thumbs up. Um, not that the sumo may see it. And why is his box crushed? It just takes a few seconds for Sean to process what may have happened, especially with the big man plowing down his partner with pain, ".. Oh.. Oh no you did NOT," Sean then growls, and he bursts toward Yamazaki, "Yeah ok so it's a fight!" at the last moment he leaps into the air and leans to the side, and with a sharp twist of his hips, intends to slam his foot right into Yamazaki's mush with grounding force, "THAT WAS EXPENSIVE!! I'm gonna rock your FACE!"

Hinako would cry out in pain as Yamazaki drives his fist into her stomach, along with the energy surrounding it, but that would require for her not to have all the air knocked completely out of her. She falls to her knees, gasping for breath for a moment as Sean runs in. But she's not going to let a little thing like that stop her. Not when she's as angry as she is right now. Which is something that rarely happens, by the way. Good going, Sean.
Climbing back to her feet, Hinako lunges at Yamazaki once again, attempting to wrap her arms around his torso, then yank him up off the ground and hurl him into the air. And possibly in Sean's general direction. But she'd /never/ do that on purpose! Really!

"Your rock is soft, little man, just like you!" Yamazaki's arms cross up, forearms making an X across his face right where Sean's incoming foot is headed. Said inbound limb slams into his forearms, and he pushes Sean off and away. "Time for you to learn about real met--" He's cut off from further taunting of the Ansatsuken student as Hinako's arms wrap as best they can around his meaty midsection. "The hell you doin'?" There's a brief *hrk* as he's yanked right up off the ground and hurled through the air.. coincidentally enough, right at Sean. He turns himself around in mid-toss.

"You wanna play throwin' games?" His feet skitter to the ground right behind Sean. This leads him into a horribly self-amused idea. One hand reaches out to snag the back of that yellow shirt's collar, and if he can get a good grip, all the muscles in Yamazaki's right arm flex and tighten as he hoists Sean right the hell up off the ground and hurls him right at Hinako.

Hinako is not especially concerned about Sean's well-being at the moment. But since she's already rushing toward Yamazaki again, she doesn't really have time to get out of the way. And stopping to try and deflect Sean would slow her down an unacceptable amount. So she runs straight into him, barely even slowing down as she grabs and hangs onto him.
The only reason for that, of course, is so that she can carry him a few more paces, before hurling him back toward Yamazaki. And as Sean goes flying, Hinako runs underneath, aiming to slam into Yamazaki with her shoulder...

And now, Hinako unleashes her fury.
After driving her shoulder into Yamazaki's sternum, she explodes into a flurry of palm strikes, hitting so fast that her arms become a blur. These are hits that could put some impressive dents in steel plating, so Yamazaki's probably gonna feel it. She just keeps going and going, beating Yamazaki about the torso and a few blows that actually make it up to his face. Then she lifts him off the ground, gives him a squeeze that might make the gangster's chiropracter see dollar signs, then hurls him up into the air, once more in Sean's general direction.

Well dang, wouldn't you know it. That was supposed to be a moment of awesome, and Yamazaki completely turned it around with an admittadly sweet pun. Soft rock. Man, he wishes he thought of that, ".. Aw rats," Matsuda grunts, fists raised, but his eyes follow the flying gangster all the way to the point where he's picked up and slung like a baseball toward his partner. "Oof! Uh, hey, good cat- WOAH!"
Ladies and gentlemen this is NOT Seanball. :| However he is -on- the ball, And while Hinako is wailing on Yamazaki, he intends to hook his arm about Yamazaki's neck- If he manages that, he wraps his legs about the larger mans ribs, and clinches in a sweet sleeper hold. So wouldn't you know it, pretty much any direction thrown would be his general direction if all goes to plan.

As Sean is caught, this was... not quite exactly what he had in mind. And it's the combination of a high-flying Sean and a low-driving Hinako that makes him have to make a decision.. and it's the wrong one. He pays more attention to Sean, and ends up with that first hand driven hard into his ribs. The air is driven out of his lungs, and he starts gasping for breath when blow after blow starts to slam into his torso. Even a couple about the face, causing his head to jar back and almost give him a case of whiplash.. then, the arms end up around him, and *hrf* what's left of the air in his lungs is squeezed out, and his back pops before he's hurled into the air. He manages enough coherence to get his arms across his neck before Sean can cinch his arms in, and he just skitters to the ground, using the youth to absorb a bit of the landing.

Now? Yamazaki's pissed. He just got worked over by some blonde girl. He pushes Sean away, and just hops right back up to his feet. There's no catchy statements this time, just his right hand slipping into its pocket to make a grab for his knife. Faster and faster his legs move as he just takes off in a dead run at Hinako, aiming to drive that knife blade right into her midsection with a growl rumbling in his throat.

... and the moment he feels that knife slice through fabric and cut into flesh, the sneer on his face abruptly shifts into a manic grin. He throws his entire weight up against Hinako now, knocking her down to the ground.. and for a brief moment, the Orochi blood in his system tries to overwhelm him. His hands both snap up to his temples, making him drop his knife to the ground as he just rears back, and an ear-piercing cackle starts to echo through the park now when Ryuji's conciousness snaps back into focus. He stares down at Hinako for a moment before lifting his left foot up off the ground, then he drives the heel down into her rib cage as hard as he can. Once, twice, three times, the foot just becomes a blur of lift and drop until he's driven it into the sumo girl's stomach and ribs a dozen or so times. He pulls that foot away, then, and sets it back down, only to lift his right foot and drive the tip of that shiny wingtip dress shoe right into her stomach. "Don't give it if you can't take it, bitch!" Again, the cackling fills the air.

Hinako stands her ground, at least. Not that it does her very much good. The sinking sensation as the knife stabs into her stomach is a pretty good indication of the things to come. Right before the pain registers. Hinako goes down in a spray of blood, and then she's getting stomped and kicked repeatedly. There's also a few sickening crunches and snapping noises as Yamazaki's foot smashes into her over and over.
And yet, Hinako actually manages to stagger back up to her feet. Between the sizeable tear from the knife and the damage from the kicking, the lower half of her dress is only barely still hanging on, with one side completely ripped through. Of course, there's so much blood splashed about that it's difficult to see much. The long shuddering breath that Hinako takes just /looks/ painful. She's got at least a couple broken ribs, and at this point she's darn lucky that she managed to get through it with her limbs intact. Despite all of that, she's still on her feet, and anger and pride are more powerful than pain. With her vision starting to blur, she lunges at Yamazaki, lashing out with one iron-fingered hand for a grip on his throat...

COMBATSYS: Hinako can no longer fight.

And Hinako's hand closes on Yamazaki's throat. Something doesn't feel quite right, but she can't dwell on that right now. She yanks downward, then begins spinning around rapidly, whipping the gangster off of his feet. She spins and she spins, squeezing down as hard as she can on his throat... and then she suddenly stops, flinging Yamazaki away from her at high speed, head first.
And then Hinako promptly falls face down into the dirt and stops moving.

Yamazaki's power and ferocity are overwhelming, for most people. His savagery, though, will ultimately be his downfall -- of this Kim Kaphwan is certain, as he watches the fight unfold. He winces as Yamazaki makes quick, bloody work of Hinako. No one should ever fight so violently, with such a lust to kill. It isn't natural, and it makes Kaphwan frown most mightily at the gangster. He's silent, however; a fight such as this shouldn't be sullied with petty words. He merely smiles when Hinako gets her own chance to lash out at Yamazaki. A final strike... leaving only --
Kim calls out suddenly, pointing a STRONG, IMPASSIONED finger towards the fighter! "Look inside your heart! You can take down this man!" He only spares a brief look of concern towards the unconscious Hinako. She should be fine; he hopes, at least. If she's not, well. Kim might have to teach Yamazaki a lesson, regardless of rules! The defense of Justice transcends all rules anyway! He does what he can with what he has at the moment. That being -- transferring the fiery spirit of Justice into the young Sean.

Sean, in the meantime, is in complete and utter shock. His jaw slack he almost can't even believe what he's seeing. Now, he's all for equal-respect to all sex fighters, but isn't that overkill? And on top of that this nutball seems really happy with that kind of violence!
And to honest, that actually is enough to shake the confidence of Sean Matsuda a bit, taking a small step back, "N- no way," he chokes out, "Th- This guy is sick, he's crazy." But then wouldn't you know it, like a page from a story book, something awakens in ol' Matsuda. Maybe it had to do with Hinako going out in a blaze of glory, maybe it had someting to do with recalling Rule #1. Heck maybe it was the cries for Justice to be upheld like some sort of modern day Tuxedo Mask?

Who the heck knows but at that moment, Sean re tightens his gloves, teeth grit and starting to tremble, ".. Oh man, I haven't felt like this in a while," he grumbles to himself, as it would appear Yamazaki is headed in his general direction, "I almost forgot, I'M CRAZY TOO, MAN! RAAAUGH!" a large patch of grass and dirt bursts back from his sudden forward dash, the Brazillian Bomber choosing to go head-to-head with the gangster, and with a dive forward, attempts to tackle Yamazaki to the ground, and if he can accomplish that, he straddles the big man and comes out swinging, one two three hooks across the face, "What the hell is -wrong- with you, man??"

"You? Crazy?" There's a notably amused laugh rattling in Yamazaki's throat as Sean starts throwing turf around with the force of his dash. "You wanna see crazy, kid!? I'LL DAMN WELL SHOW YOU CRAZY!" He drives both heels into the turf now, digging in and leaning right forward to laugh /right/ /in/ /Sean's/ /face/. Boisterous cackling as the Brazilian comes running towards him. And not only does he run in, he /dives/ in. The laughter gets louder and louder as Yamazaki starts to summon up that purple vapor in his right hand, and right as Sean gets close enough, he just drives his knuckles square into his opponent's face. There's no fancy moves made this time, just punching Sean as hard as he possibly can with that vapor-clad fist in the face.

"Yeah, you heard me!" Sean barks back, not because he even thought about it, but because it was time to rock harder than he's ever rocked before. Though cripes, the gangster is just UNSETTLING, the laughter making him queasy in the gut. But you know, that's solved easily enough when the purple-fist slams into her mug, his arms swooping forward and he takes another trip backward, tumbling along the ground a few times. And when he manages to push himself upward, he raises his gloved hand to his face, blood nearly pouring out of his nose, and.. Tastes like a busted lip as well, "... Y.. You're kiddin', right?" he manages to sputter, getting to his feet with a wild, red grin, fists raised up to his face, "What're you, man, The Joker??" Sean darts forward one more 'gain, heart pounding harder with each step and once he's close enough, twirls on one foot and attempts to kick Yamazaki across the face with the flat of his foot, "I've eaten crazier bread at Little Caesers! WHAT NOW??"

COMBATSYS: Yamazaki endures Sean's Light Kick.

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

What now? Well, step one is not even trying to dodge. Yamazaki stands stock-still as Sean's foot comes up and around, and catches him square in the side of his face. And what does Yamazaki do? He grins. "What now?" The grin gets wider, and Yamazaki starts laughing again. "What now!?" That blonde-topped head turns off to one side, causing his neck to pop audibly.before he straightens up again. Each of his fists clench hard enough to cause his knuckles to pop audibly. Then, one hand reaches across the way. He grabs for one of the large, metal trash nearby. Meaty leather-clad hands dig into the sides, and there's an audible 'hrrrrrrrrrg' as he rips it free of the metal cage that was previously keeping it bolted to the ground. It's summarily lifted right up over his head. "Here's 'what now', you little bastard!" He rears back, then chucks the garbage can at Sean as hard as he possibly can.

COMBATSYS: Yamazaki successfully hits Sean with Large Thrown Object.
- Power hit! -

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

Or.. Uh. Yamazaki could just beat the crap out of Sean. The fighter looks alarmed that his kick didn't even nearly blast the taste out of his mouth, and gives a weak grin in response to the yakuza's yelling, ".. This is so not good," and here comes the trashcan. Sean should have uppercutted the crap out of that can, he really -really- should have, but he didn't, and that moment of faultering is enough for the thing to slam into Sean and send him flying back into -another- trash can that bursts from the hinges. Garbage wrappers everywhere! Soda cans!
".... uurgh.." he groans, sitting up slowly, panting heavily as he gets to his feet with a broken Burger King crown on his head, ".. Ok enough is enough, I'm supposed to be the one kicking butt here!" his hands draw back as he takes another step back, and with a growl wind sweeps toward his hands and about his form, energy crackling about them as an orange orb forms, "Ok then! Let's try this again from the TOP!" haha see what he did there? Palms thrust forward, Sean releases the energry, the orange orb bursting with a white aura about it as it swivles and torpedos toward Yamazaki like a wild pitch, "HYAAAAAAAAAAH!!"

COMBATSYS: Yamazaki reflects Hadou Burst from Sean with Bai Gaeshi.

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

The laughter starts up again, seeing the destruction that he's caused with the impact of the garbage can sandwiching Sean between another garbage can. Ryuji Yamazaki shakes his head just a little as he continues to chuckle, watching the flurry of garbage exploding into the air. Then, as Sean gets up with the King's crown on, the grin returns back to Yamazaki's face all over again. "You're right, enough is enough, kid. It's time for me to end this." Yamazaki stands up straight again, right hand slipping into its pocket as he waits to see Sean's next move... and as the orb crackles into being, that telltale purple vapor starts to coalesce up his left forearm. It's reaching from fingertip to elbow by the time Sean starts yelling again.

"Try all you want, son, it's NOT GONNA WORK!" And then, the torpedo is launched right at him. "EAT SHIT, NEWBIE!" His left hand comes up in a quick snap, and... Yamazaki /catches/ the Hadou Burst. It just floats aimlessly in his palm for a moment, then the Yakuza brute brings his hand up and tosses it in a sharp diagonal backhand, flinging Sean's own attack right back at him.

COMBATSYS: Sean overcomes Reflected Hadou Burst from Yamazaki with Hadou Burst.

Sean             0/-------/-------|=====--\-------\0         Yamazaki

"Wh... No -way-!" Sean shrieks, clasping his head in shock. And why shouldn't he, Yamazaki just -caught- his fireball as if it were nothing! There was a ton of energy in that thing. This also makes him realize he's wearing a crown, but he'll worry about that later as he finds room in his schedule to be annoyed at being called a newbie and he's already leaning back, putting intense effort into whipping up another fireball pronto.. He's.. He's never had to do it before, but in moments time, at the very last moment his palms thrusts forward and there's practically an explosion in his face, "Never say never!!" Sean yells, another orange orb bursting toward Yamazaki with extreme prejudice, "This newbie is about to beat the CRAP out of you!"

COMBATSYS: Yamazaki endures Sean's Hadou Burst.

Sean             0/-------/-------|======-\-------\0         Yamazaki

The smirk is still wide on Yamazaki's face as the Hadou Burst is flung right back at its place of origin... but his head just tilts a little to one side. ... is that a.. it is. A second, and it just right through the first. Yamazaki's running out of ideas at this point, so he does the first thing that pops into his head. He tucks his right hand into his pocket and lets his left arm go completely limp. He sticks his left shoulder down, and just lets the orb slam right into his shoulder. When the collision of energy fades... the blonde is still standing there. "Gonna have to try harder than that, you nancy-armed little bastard!" It's at that moment that his left arm resumes its living state; an exact mimic of the way he opened the match; the leather-clad left hand comes right up, moving in a blur as he tries to drive that fist square into Sean's facemeat.

COMBATSYS: Sean interrupts Snake Tamer from Yamazaki with Basketball.

Yamazaki         1/-------/=======|

"... Nancy armed, huh.." Sean grumbles, throwing his crown to the side, and feeling a bit of a dizzy spell. He's not going to be able to keep this up much longer, he's gonna have to do something big. Really big. .. And he doesn't even have the energy to do -that-. Which means it's time to improvise. Whatever Yamazaki whips at him, he's going to have to take it, his hand behind his back and then whipped toward Yamazaki the moment the gangsters fist smashes into his face yet again, that sends him down to the ground like a sack of potatos. Not without a good-bye gift though, because from HIS whipped hand was a white and red basketball, that smacks Yamazaki in the face in turn, just like BOOP! the ricochetted ball bounces into the air and then more harmlessly off of the top of Yamazaki's head.
Chillin' in the trash can, bubbled up and one eye closed, Sean groans a little, but then lets out a weak snicker. Which becomes a stronger laugh as he points to Yamazaki, coughing a bit of blood in the process, "H.. Haha! Hahah *cough* O... Oh man.. You got -wrecked-, dude, balls in the face." he sputters, and then goes limp, panting heavily for breath. Nope, he. He can't get back from this one.

... he... he just got hit in the face with a basketball. ... very slowly, he returns his head back down from its knocked-back state, and he just levels a glare at Sean. He's about one step from walking over and breaking him, but Geese has taken careful care to warn all match officials about Yamazaki's tendencies, and the announcer has already come out with the referee. The speakers crackle to life as the striped-shirted official takes hold of Yamazaki's hand and hoists it into the air. "YOUR WINNAH.... RYUJI YAAAAAAMAZAKI!" Ryuji's hand is raised, and he glares one way and the other to the two fallen youths before he cocks his head off to one side and spits out a fairly decent-sized bit of blood. "Goddamn kids... first that little skunk-haired bastard, now this piece of tra-- hee. Piece of trash." He looks back over his shoulder as several officials work on ushering him back to his town car. "You're back where you belong, you worthless little bastard! IN THE TRASH! Say hello to your mother while you're in there for me, she probably misses me!" Ah, the Yakuza. Never hesitating to take the low blow. He's still yammering threats and taunts towards Sean as he's "helped" into his town car. Once he's inside, the reverse lights light up and the car starts to depart the arena.

COMBATSYS: Yamazaki has ended the fight here.

Sean frowns. So much for the last laugh, he just got owned. "..." Next time, he's gonna destroy Yamazaki. For real.

As the medical staff carts Hinako off, some 'thoughtful' fan takes the initiative to pick up the slightly crumpled box and stick it on the stretcher with her so that it won't be lost. So she's /sure/ to be in a wonderful mood when she wakes up in the hospital.

A loss. Sean and Hinako lost to the fury of Yamazaki, albeit a close loss. A tragic tale indeed, and one that leaves Kim staring, breatheless. And he knows why they lost. Oh yes, he knows. And, gravely, he turns his head towards the sky, biting his lower lip.
"... It was because of the bathingsuit." Kim nods solemnly to the spectators, closing his eyes as he turns and walks away, into the sunset. The tragedy of the Hero's Pain!!!
