Neo League 0001 - NL#0051: Mimiru vs Azumi

Description: Looking for a rush of adrenaline, Mimiru gets up into a fight with a new and strange creature! The werewolf fights off the Stray Dog of Southtown in the wintery setup of Southtown's Park

Mimiru needed her adrenaline rush -- it had been too long since she had done something reckless or fought, and as of sort, like some sort of speed dating game, she contacted the Neo League to issue a challenge to someone into it for this evening. The location : the large and majestuous park beside Seijyun High. Mimiru didn't like the huge arenas filled with people : she was, after all, the Stray Dog of Southtown and, as of sort, fought outside whenever she had the chance.

The sun is slowly setting into the distance, the many lamps in the park casting a low light into the wintery park. The snow covered most of the place, but it didn't bother Mimiru -- she loved those scenary and fought best in a natural setup like this.

Her faithful dog, Max, a large bernese mountain dog was with her, sitting there patiently, waiting. Someone will probably answer her challenge, she's certain.

Azumi had signed up for the league a little while ago, mostly as a way to pay the bills and perhaps make her life a little less exposed, as it had been after the exile. Little did she know that the league would contact her quite literally a few days after that contract was still fresh, requesting her first fight. Her knowledge of Southtown geography is pretty limited, as she was still a newcomer to the city, but with a part as large as this, it wasn't terribly hard to find.

Curious as to the types of opponents she might face, the werewolf arrives to the fight early, resting in a nearby tree branch to wait for her opponent. When the girl arrives more or less on time, she spends a casual moment observing her and her pet before leaping into action. She flings herself high into the air with a lazy somersault and lands a graceful crouch in front of Mimi, Azumi still garbed in her hoodie and sweat pants that she had before, hiding her appearance from view. She pulls herself to a regular standing position and speaks casually towards the woman.

"Are you here for the Neo League fight?"

The pink haired girl didn't seem to pay much attention when she did not see azumi -- in fact, it's her dog's barking that tells her that Azumi is there. It wasn't a menacing bark, just one to warn Mimiru of the arrival of someone. Which worked, for the most part, as Mimiru turns on her heels and glances over in Azumi's direction.

Obvious to Azumi's true nature, Mimiru's lips curl into a wide grin and she beams a bit, "I am! Looking foward to a little adrenaline rush, ahah," Mimiru grins as she takes a step back, slipping into her combat stance. This causes her dog to move away almost immediately.

As for Mimiru's look -- her outfit seemed quite worn out, and she had that short of hobo / wanderer look to her. The dog didn't help her either on that matter.

COMBATSYS: Mimiru has started a fight here.

Mimiru           0/-------/-------|

Azumi is a little surprised at the lack of reaction her rather sudden appearance got. She sighs at that and takes a moment to throw off her hoodie and sweat pants in a flamboyant manner, letting them land out of the way of the perceived fight area. How'd she get the pants off so fast? Magic.

Underneath the suit is a fairly standard looking dark blue ninja garb, complete with a green scarf wrapped around her neck. She passes a very sincere grin towards the canine friend she'd brought and settles into a fighting stance herself.

"Well then lady, you came to the right place. Let's get this started."

Azumi's athletic prowess were impressive, but Mimiru had seen a lot of stuff in her life. Took a lot to impress or surprise her! However when Azumi tosses off her pants and the hoodie, Mimiru blinks and she takes a step back -- she had rarely seen someone who could strip so fast! Though the real surprise came from the rather inhuman features Azumi had.

Her eyes widen in surprise, "What the..." She mutters under her breath. There was a bit of fear in her eyes for a moment, though it just made her heart pound faster, "Rock on! Bring it on!" She shouts with a wicked grin.

Mimiru wanted something special? She's got just what she asked for!

Azumi makes the first move in this battle which...appears to be doing...just...nothing. She stands up straight and pushes both of her clawed hands together, folding her fingers over one another, except for the pointer finger and the middle finger. A small green whirlwind of air swirls around her feet as she takes a deep breath, gathering a bit of energy for reasons that weren't entirely known. Her eyes are still open though, waiting to see what her opponent would do.

COMBATSYS: Azumi has joined the fight here.

The pink haired girl lifts her forearm up when the wind blows from Azumi's concentration, causing a bit of stray snow to be kicked up in the process. Daring and bold as ever, Mimiru's lips curl into a wide grin, eager to face this new and strange opponent!

As if to show her what she's capable of, flames flare up around Mimiru's leg a moment before she charges at Azumi, "Kyaaa!" She shouts as she lifts her flaming leg straight for Azumi's breast, a high kick meant to knock her up. Mimiru follows along with the leap, lifting both of her arms up before she swings them down, attempting to hit Azumi over the head with it and send her back down.

COMBATSYS: Azumi blocks Mimiru's Heavy Kick.

Mimiru           0/-------/-------|=======\-------\1            Azumi

Azumi wasn't sure what to expect from this seemingly ordinary woman, but she attacked perhaps a smidge too early for her liking. Knowing that she hadn't quite saved the energy she'd built, she opts to block, wrapping both arms around her torso to tank the hit. The aerial follow up forces her to raise her arms above her head, protecting it from the axe kick. She lands back on her feet and looks up towards Mimiru's projected landing area.

She leaps backwards, pulling herself into a tight ball as she backflips, her right hand glowing with the same green energy trail from earlier. At the apex of her backflip she breaks her form and flings her charged hand, unleashing a large, green chi projectile in the shape of a shuriken, right at the expected spot where Mimiru would soon be.

COMBATSYS: Mimiru fails to slow Gust Shock from Azumi with Balefire.

Mimiru           0/-------/-----==|=======\=------\1            Azumi

With Azumi having taken a bit of distance, when Mimiru notices she gathers the wind she has channeled around of her, Mimiru prepares to retaliate with her own chi. She opens her arms wide, causing them to burn with crimson flames. She lifts both of her hands up and swings them in the air, hurling a X shaped blast of fire in an attempt to overcome Azumi's chi shurikens and send her fireball back at her.

Alas, it doesn't quite goes the way Mimiru expected it, Azumi's shurkien piercing through her flames and dimissing them just moments after Mimiru had thrown it. It leaves her no moment to rocket, the shurikens hitting her right on and knocking her back. Mimiru rolls on her back and skids in the snow, tumbling a bit to try and regain her bearing and balance after Azumi's attack.

Azumi smiles when the shuriken hits it's target, allowing her more distance to put inbetween her and her opponent. She then assumes the same stance she had before, standing up straight, collapsing her fingers in the same style as before, but this time, the green wind around her feet grows significantly. Where as before it only swirled around her feet, the column of air raises to about her chest level, the werewolf still charging up more energy.

COMBATSYS: Azumi gathers her will.

Mimiru           0/-------/-----==|=======\=====--\1            Azumi

Mimiru shakes her head a bit, still a bit shaken by the attack that hit her. She lifts her gaze up at Azumi, her smile widening, "Guess I shouldn't underestimate your wind..." Mimiru says as she notices Azumi is charging up the gusts of wind once more.

"Oh no you don't!" Mimiru says as she rushes toward Azumi in an attempt to break her focus before she can power herself up with enough energy to perform some powerful tornado or something -- Mimiru attempts to stop her with an inferno of her own. As soon as she approaches close enough, Mimiru spins on her heels and opens her arms wide, channelling her chi into a swirling inferno around her feet. The blazing wave of fire quickly rises into a torrent, like a maelstrom of fire around Mimiru, hopefully catching Azumi into the rising flames.

COMBATSYS: Azumi blocks Mimiru's Defiance.

Mimiru           0/-------/----===|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2            Azumi

Azumi finishes her prior manuver just in the nick of time, a green burst of wind pushing everything near her back. Luckily for her, the wind also manages to dull the oncoming torrent of flame, giving the werewolf just enough time to backflip away again. She didn't escape unscathed though, the heat singing her fur and cloth enough to be a reminder that perhaps it's best to avoid being set on fire more than she usually does. Fur is flammable apparently.


She lands a few feet away and slides back, focusing her gaze upon her opponent and waits for the moment where the flames might die. Seeing a potential opportunity, she rushes forward with a speed that she hadn't showcased previously and brings a heavy slashing claw about where the woman's chest would be, hoping to knock her out of it. She follows up with a rapid series of clawing and punches, following up with a shoryuken style uppercut to send her into the air and bringing them both down with a savage bite to the shoulder, pinning her to the ground.

COMBATSYS: Mimiru blocks Azumi's Cyclone Slash.

Mimiru           0/-------/--=====|>>>>>>-\-------\0            Azumi

When the flames die down, Mimiru barely has the time to recover for Azumi's charge. She lifts her forearms up to block the first slashes, though the claw rip through the fabric of her clothes and cut her flesh, making her growl in pain. The pink haired lass manages to ignore the pain though, moving instinctively and swiftly, reacting to Azumi's flurry of blows. She sweeps her arms in front of her, pushing away her attacks when she does, blocking others with her forearms and avoiding any impact on her midsection.

Mimiru manages to brace herself from the last uppercut, though the force of the impact knocks her upward. Azumi uses that moment to shove her down, and Mimiru barely manages to move her arms to Azumi's shoulder to prevent her from bitting her shoulder. She struggles on the ground and growls, holding Azumi off before she can bite her. Mimiru attempts to retaliate now, shoving her knee roughly into Azumi's midsection. She then uses her arms to grab her garment and gives herself a swing, using her foot to help herself to throw Azumi off from her.

COMBATSYS: Mimiru successfully hits Azumi with Tomoe Nage.

Mimiru           0/-------/-======|>>>>>>>\>>-----\1            Azumi

Azumi didn't quite get the hold she was looking for and for her efforts, catches a nasty knee to the midsection, followed by a nice throw. She doesn't recover cleanly from the hit, throwing her shoulder down to do a combat roll to get back to her feet. She growls now though, knowing that this needed to end sooner rather than later. As seen before, she stands up straight again and goes back into that charging stance, but this time she spends absolutely no time doing it. The wind effect happens almost immediately, and this time the energy transfers into her hands, each one glowing as they had been before. She glares at her opponent, seeming quite ready to take on whatever attack she might throw next.

COMBATSYS: Azumi gains composure.

Mimiru           0/-------/-======|=======\======-\1            Azumi

Once Mimiru has managed to throw Azumi off her back, she rolls on her feet and straightens herself up, turning on her heels to face Azumi. She is panting loudly from the fatigue, her body aching from the onslaught Azumi had delivered her, but thankfully she managed to defend herself well. Not even taking the time to take a breather, Mimiru draws into her inner reserve of energy, regaining a second breath as she straightens herself up, "Not bad -- but you're playing it too defensive, you won't get me that way," Mimiru says with a wicked grin.

She concentrates a moment, causing flames to burst into her right arm. She charges at Azumi and leaps up, lifting her arm up and delivering a cleaving blow with it. She's too far to actually touch Azumi with her arm, but the flames extend like a whip meant to lash out at her.

COMBATSYS: Mimiru successfully hits Azumi with Firebrand.

Mimiru           0/-------/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2            Azumi

Azumi...might officially hate fire now. The whip wasn't completely unlike some other abilities she'd ran into before, but unlike those, this one burned quite hot. She attempts to side step the attack and gets a healthy lash across the midsection, burning both the fur and the clothes there. She hisses in pain as she does, gathering her footing and looking a little more closely at the whip's extending location. She speaks towards Mimi after she recovers, sounding a bit more focused than she did before.

"Is that a fact? Then let me show you what I'm capable of."

She rushes forward in one massive lunge, closing the distance between the two of them, aiming to just strike Mimi in the face with an explosive punch.

COMBATSYS: Mimiru counters Aggressive Strike from Azumi with Ippon Seoi Nage.

Mimiru           1/-------/=======|>>>>>>>\>>>>>>>\2            Azumi

It's hard to know whether or not Mimiru said that to taunt Azumi into a more aggressive sort of battle, perhaps to lure her into doing just what she wants, though considering how she reacts to Azumi's aggressive lunge, everything makes it believe she's been inticipating this sort of reaction.

Mimiru takes a step back, slightly stepping aside to let Azumi's punch graze her face. Mimiru's right hand quickly reaches underneath Azumi's underpit, while the other grabs her wrists and she turns on her heels to press her back against Azumi's chest. She bends over and uses her grasp over her arm to throw her off over her shoulder, slamming her against the ground before she lets go of her.

"That's more like it!" Mimiru encourages.

Azumi had several ideas for what she might do afterwards. Maybe a nice series of punches into some aerial stuff, maybe a series of kicks followed by a bite, or maybe even more projectiles being thrown. After all, she was fully charged. In either case, all of those are immediately stuffed when the woman grabs her and quite immediately throws her into the ground, head first. Despite all of her years of ninja training, there's very few of them designed to escape quick grabs such as that one.

She takes the hit about as well as anyone could, emitting a loud, canine-sounding yelp of pain, followed by a curling of the spine which allowed her to get back to her feet, but there's very clearly been some damage, with a stream of blood falling from both her brow and her nose as she gets herself upright.

Choosing to act first, she claps her hands together hard, following it with a stomp of one of her feet. The energy she'd been exhibiting earlier falls from her and a tornado appears around Mimi's feet. After only a second, a tremendous tornado pushes the pink haired one into the air with great speed. The wind is pushing at the small of her back and centered directly upon it. Azumi controls it from her standing position on the ground, maintaining eye contact and moving her hands in tandem. She uses it to push the attack around in a lazy circle, carrying Mimi the entire time. Eventually it starts to point downward, propelling them both into the very spot that Mimi took off from. The impact should be pretty damaging, with the winds at least slamming into the ground and dispelling with such force that anything that could even be considered light would be sent flying. The nearby trees rustle and shrubs sway with the oncoming torrents. The werewolf withstands them fairly, letting it pass through her without too much disturbance, waiting to see just how much damage was done.

COMBATSYS: Azumi can no longer fight.

Mimiru           1/--=====/=======|

When the gusts of wind swirls around Mimiru's feet, the pink haired girl attempts to jump off from where she stands -- alas, the funnel of air had already gotten its grasp over Mimiru, and despite her struggling and squirming, she's caught into the growing tornado that lifts her off the ground. She spins around in the tornado, controlling nothing, entirely caught into it. Her voice comes into screams as she spins around, totally helpless in the stream of wind.

Then suddenly the force that pushed her in the air sends her down hard, slamming her against the cold pavement with a loud crack. Mimiru arches her back with pain and grunts, whimpering a bit as she rolls on her side and coughs a few times. Her head still spins and it seems troublesome for her to get back on her feet, "Huh... Damn, what just happened.." She says as she stumbles back and forth, wobbling about. She lifts her arms up, ready to attack still but she's not quite seeing straight.

Had it not been a fight, she probably would have asked for another turn... Masochist as she was, it was still fun in a way...

She finally stumbles against a tree and leans down, trying to make her head stop spinning, "Huh... Huh... I think I'm gonna throw up, urg, I'm... Oooh, okay... Weee..."

Azumi seems...somewhat satisfied by that, her opponent didn't seem to take that hit very well. Unfortunately for her, Mimi had at least stood back up, which is more than what she could say for her position. The strike to her head had unnerved her greatly and it'd only been because of her gathered chi...and a bit of wounded pride, that had allowed her the clarity to land a hit so massive. Now that it was over, the shock to her system couldn't be ignored. Her legs give way after a dilligent attempt at staying upright, forcing her to take a knee. A few seconds later, her balance fails her and she falls over flat on her face. For all intents and purposes, she looked to be in no mood to fight, closing one eye to deal with the pain, while the other looks over towards Mimi.

"I...had so much more...I can't..."

Mimiru is holding herself against the tree for a moment -- it takes a few seconds, but her head finishes spinning around. Still standing, Mimiru glances over to Azumi, who seems spent and drained. Mimiru's lips curl into a smile, panting loudly, "Huh... Good fight,"

Her dog barks and rushes over to Mimiru's side and she ruffles the dog's hair a bit, glancing at Azumi, frowning at her. It was the first time she fought someone so different. "Don't give up, that's the key," Mimiru says, beaming, "One day, who knows, you might be strong enough to defeat me.." She grins and says, "Let's go Max, I've got my rush," She glances at Azumi, "Thanks for the fight.."

Azumi groans, not just in pain, but at the added humiliation of being talked down to. She slowly starts to recover from the head trauma, sliding her arms underneath herself to push off of the ground. She doesn't speak back towards her, letting Mimi leave without further conflict.

As soon as she's out of line of sight, she emotionally reacts, slamming her fists into the ground multiple times in anger. "Ffff...Talking to me like..she knows anything...about me. I'm better than this. I am. Better. Than this." She pushes herself back to her feet with quite a bit of effort, the ringing between her ears not quite fading as she turns to look around for her tossed off clothing...and realizes that it likely was sent flying by the torrential wind gust she'd caused. She facepalms hard, her ears flattening against her head and her tail drooping.

"...Lost the fight and lost my clothes. Today just...isn't my day."
