Rumble In The Streets - [Rumble W3] MAKI vs BLUE MARY

Description: HitBit-sponsored RUMBLE IN THE STREETS Tournament Quarterfinals! The W Bracket will be hosting the as-yet-undefeated MAKI GENRYUUSAI pitted against a fan favorite "BLUE" MARY RYAN. Unfortunately, the Rumble Committee seems to have the worst timing -- the match started at 5:15, which stumbles right up against a prominent ZAITOKUKAI RALLY taking place. There, Japanese nationalists are angrily protesting the continued presence of foreigners "greedily soaking up benefits intended for pureblooded Japanese citizens."

The Rumble in the Streets has proven to be quite a useful thing for Maki, since she's found herself utilizing skills she didn't think she'd had sometimes, as well as learning not to underestimate any opponent in any way. She's also learned that, despite being annoying, the HitBit is quite useful for her since she's being paid a lot of money for her usage. Of course most of it is going towards renovations of the Bushin-ryuu dojo, with Maki keeping a small portion for herself. Imagine all the tapioca she could purchase with that money! But enough of that for now.

Maki's arrived at the location where the fight is going to begin, and at first she's relieved to find it's just a standard fighting area, as opposed to fighting onboard a flatcar on a moving train. Things should be more firm beneath her feet, and the traditional fighting area makes things more simple for her. Or at least that's how it should be... until she senses trouble, and she looks around to see that things aren't going to be as peaceful as she thought. Two groups are here to protest, and unfortunately, from the look of things, it seems that the groups aren't exactly looking to shake hands and talk things out. They look very angry at one another, and already the tension can be felt in the air. Looking at her tonfa, Maki debates attempting to use it to help disperse the angry people, but then she remembers what she's here for, and a stern look from one of the fight attendants keeps her in line. Sighing, she slips on the HitBit and rolls her neck around a little. "Anyone gets in my way, they're gonna be feeling it in the morning!" Maki comments.

The mood around these parts was just grim, and hatefilled.

Protesters had been yelling what were probably slogans and taking up chants off and on, just in the last few minutes. She hadn't really been paying them much mind. The security staff holding the crowd back and keeping the space clear was more interesting. A protest about foreigners and here they were being shunted aside and pressing back against the barrier wall of riotshields. All so some company could film a fight featuring at least one foreigner. Both blondes.

That seems needlessly provocative.

They certainly had a crowd watching for the event but it was one they were antagonizing with their presence. With too few guards, noisy quadrotor camera drones making their presence felt overhead. The fury of the crowd was something else. They had it in for the girls and the event but what was really pissing them off seemed to be the mostly soft spoken or stoic guards themselves.

This would get out of hand soon enough left to its own devices. It was already a powder keg.

The phone in her pocket goes off and the blond makes a show of removing her phone and staring at the notice that the match was set to begin. Right? That was still happeningc no notice that it was off or the location was moving. All this, for the backdrop of Osaka Castle? That was hard to believe.

Whatever. Wasn't her problem.

Stretching out and rolling a shoulder she anbles closer to an assumed starting position. Taking notice of her opponent for the first time instead of the show she offhandedly waves.

"Hiiiii, you aren't worried about fighting with that mane of pretty hair?"

It looked like the girl took pride in it. All crimped and wavy. But anything goes in a streetfight and hair that big was probably at least a little dangerous. Mary takes note of the Tonfa but seems quite confidant regardless, just a quick glance down at them.

Still strikingly confidant even while unarmed herself.

Once Maki hears the sound of her opponent speaking, she raises an eyebrow. Calling her hair a 'mane?' That's a new one on her. Sure it might be pretty and it might also be a bit on the bushy side, but that doesn't mean it's like a lion's head of hair. But to each their own.

Maki turns to face her opponent and shakes her head. "I'm not worried in the least bit. I'm just here to get this fight over with!" She sneers a little and darts her eyes to one side. "Namely because I want to finish things before those two get into it too harshly." The protesters just had to pick this time and place to be protesting. To Maki, any protesters who get in her way somehow are just collateral damage that the fight organizers will have to deal with themselves. It's all about the fight in itself right now.

"My hair might be a bit bigger than yours," Maki adds, in commenting on Blue Mary's simple blonde hair, "But it's all about the skills of our fighting that will make the difference here!" She waves her tonfa at Blue Mary. "Have at you!"

Once the signal to begin is given, Maki wastes no time in getting the fight underway. "Ready or not, here I come!" Maki yells as she rushes at Blue Mary and attempts to rush in from the side while attempting to strike her tonfa into Mary's stomach.

Mary hardly appears to move in response to the sudden dash. The other girl was quick on her feet, and even faster latching onto the opening as Mary toys with brushing a stray lock of hair back into place. Her ribs were taped up on the one side, arm risen to her face on that same side so it was open and vulnerable to attack. A delicious opening that might prove irresistible.

The warning before she attacked was kind of refreshing. She hadn't seen a whole lot of opponent's this forthright or honourable or whatever provoked them to act like that. When she does turn to meet the charge she sways around, slips one hand under the incoming blow, swings it wide and lodges her hip against maki' guiding her trajectory over it as she bends forward and launches the young girl just gently into the air.


The move seems almost charitable, a gentle reminder to be more careful. But that wasn't it at all.

"Stun gun SMASHER"

She snatches the girl out of the air and smashed them into the courtyard at her feet. The impact obscured by the explosion of blue chi at the source, but the heavy sound of that impact! One that was felt even by some of the onlookers. With some kind of spectacle going on now at least attention had shifted to the girls instead. Feeling charitable Mary even continues to address the girl.

"The thing about Tonfa and weapons like it? Is there's no edge."

A very basic point.

"It's as useful to me as a handle as it is to you as a weapon."

If someone were daring enough to use someone else's weapon as one of their own and to their advantage. In some small way Mary might be trying to help but in other ears it might sound condescending.

Maki can see how Mary would use that to her advantage. In fact, she's kind of regretting coming in with her tonfa like that. Not having faced Blue Mary before has made her come to realize that she should really be more careful in these situations. In fact, it appears she underestimated Blue Mary, just like she did with Honoka. And now she's on the ground, feeling it big time. "Unngh... owww..." Maki says, wincing in pain as she rolls back onto her feet, rubbing at the small of her back and shaking out the dizziness from her head. "I can see what you mean. That was pretty clever actually."

Maki dusts herself off a little, then turns an ear towards the protesters, as she thinks one of them calls her name. After realizing it was just her imagination, she turns back to Mary. "Never mind those clowns. Let's just focus on each other, shall we?" She smiles a little at that comment. "If you get what I mean, that is."

This time, having seen how Mary responds to her tonfa, Maki decides to try going low this time. She strafes around Mary a little, trying to keep her watching in hopes of catching her off-guard. After circling briefly, Maki attempts to go in with a low foot sweep styled attack.

Mhmm, girl picked up on that nicely. Don't lose you compose and look for your next opportunity. This was starting to shape up into something fun! Mary was already trying to tune out the crowd but now with a real challenge in front of her that was all the easier.

"I can't claim any credit for it. I had good teachers."

That was genuine, heartfelt.

As Maki turns the battle into one where mobility is the focus it's evident Mary has some issues there. With ribs taped up it's harder to turn, range of motion is reduced but she should still be quick enough on her feet to-

The swept feet scooped out from under her she falls hard on the same ribs, she can feel the crack and grating of the fractured bones as she settled to the ground. The roll-out is a little ponderous and she has to steady herself before she's willing to risk rising again.

That hurt, no idea how much damage she'd just done to herself falling that hard. But the fight isn't over yet so there was no time to stop and find out.

No scream, just a grunt of pain and slowly getting back to her feet but, she was starting to sweat. Breath coming in short sharp gulps. All that and she still bounds toward Maki, palm slapping out and straight toward the girl's face to propel her right into the ground.

Blue Mary        0/-------/--=====|=======\-------\0             Maki

Mary grabs her opponent by their head and face. Ruthlessly planting them headfirst and leaving the body standing near still vertical as the whiplash moves up. Kicking off forward into the Maki she rolls the pair of them so they fall backwards (Maki's perspective) and bounces from her seated crouch position into a falling elbow on the now prone and defenceless Maki.

Thinking she has the upper hand on this, Maki tries to avoid Blue Mary like she usually does to most opponents. But once again, Mary proves she has the upper hand and finds herself meeting the ground up close and personal. This hurts bad enough, but then Mary launches into a combination of maneuevers that add more pain to the dish. Maki finds herself grunting and yelling as she gets hit more and more, and finds herself wondering where she went wrong this time. Instead of rolling onto her feet, Maki pushes herself up this time, looking a bit more worse for the wear than she did before.

"You've caught me off guard twice. But I'm just warming up!" Maki twirls her tonfa a few times to emphasize her point. "You haven't seen anything yet! I'm gonna show you something special!" Maki looks like she's dropping to the ground, but then she suddenly begins to spin around like a whirlwind, balancing on the tip of her tonfa at the same time!

Blue Mary        0/-------/-======|=======\==-----\1             Maki

Mary, standing off just enough to let the girl rise. She makes a show of combing her hair back and tucking it behind her ear. Her visibility improved and the gesture had a habit of provoking some kind of reaction. Her eyes sparkling, she was responding to the spirit shown to her by digging down to find her own; Fire to fight fire. When Maki said she hadn't seen anything yet, Mary doubles down. Grinding her feet back and forth to sink through she solidifies her root, the whole time ready to spring away if whatever was coming necessitated it.

She'd never really seen it's like before. The inverted windmill and scything legs was a little intimidating, there's no telling what kind of speed and force the girl could generate if this was some kind of 'special technique' of hers.

Time dilates right down as she makes a move on the next revolution, Hair bouncing and tumbling away form it's pecarious position behind her ear and falling back. Wavering back out of the path of one sweeps and harms way she switches it up, changing direction /in/ toward and grabbing the leg on the following. Arms tightly encircling it she lifts one leg off the ground and sets it against the abdominals of the younger woman. Leaning backwards slowly and lifting the younger off the ground she simultaneously lifts with the leg and hurls with her arms pitching Maki into the air with an almost gentle Judo like throw.

That throw turns into a right mess almost immediately, as Maki had her own momentum and spin going on before Mary imparted her own into the mix.

It is quite a mess. Once again, Maki's really gotten over her head again, and she really is finding it painful in many ways. Not to mention the fact her signature move was countered really makes it hurt even more. She struggles to get up again, and this time her blonde hair really does look quite the mess. She groans a little and rubs at her side, feeling like something might be sprained at the very least. Quite humiliating.

Staring down Blue Mary, Maki narrows her eyes. "I don't know what you've got up your sleeves, but you're more than meets the eye, that's for sure! But I've got a few surprises of my own as well!" Looking around, Maki finds a nearby barricade, and uses that to leap onto and then fly at Blue Mary with a sudden burst of energy and then attempts to hit her with a swift flying kick.

Th-These foreigners, what did they think they were doing! The crowd getting even louder and rowdier in response to the action thus far. The fact the girls seemed so heedless of the setting or caring about their protest and choosing instead to only focus on one another. Not the struggle, Not the mighty castle or how intimidating they were. Not even any publicity? Were the drones trying to also pick out who they were? This was infuriating.

Half turned away from her opponent Mary was dimly aware of the growing unrest. She can't afford to take her eyes off Maki for longer than the time it takes the girl get back to her-THERE SHE IS. Whipping in the air that golden mane and the girl streaking ahead of it toward her. Leg extended and intent on pulverising her Mary bunches up the muscles in her arm and folds it in tight against her side, pushing sideways to turn the direct hit into a hard but glancing blow against her.

Even as maki rounds on Mary she finds the older woman, on hand propped on her knee, one eye closed in a wink and crooking her finger repeatedly in a 'come hither' gesture.

"Come oh~n!"

They weren't even remotely done just yet but she was finally plenty fired up

The crowd was near baying for blood already. Now they are.

COMBATSYS: Blue Mary gathers her will.

Blue Mary        1/----===/=======|=======\==-----\1             Maki

They want blood? They'll get it!

Maki is panting and gasping for air after her attack was deflected by Mary, realizing that she's getting a bit tired here. But she's still going to give it her all, no matter how lopsided the match might be so far. She adjusts her HitBit briefly, then twirls her tonfa a little. "You'll get blood," Maki mutters to the angry protesters, albeit in a soft voice.

Looking around quickly, Maki wipes the sweat from her brow, then spots a water bottle nearby. She thanks her lucky stars for this, and proceeds to take a gulp of water. Hopefully this should help regain her focus and put her back into this fight.

COMBATSYS: Maki gains composure.

Blue Mary        1/----===/=======|=======\=------\1             Maki

Bewildered, Mary responds to the sudden loss of focus by dropping her arm. One eyebrow rising as she straightens. Head canted to the side, lips pursed and just slight disbelieving with an equal part amused at that response. Was the expectation there was to be a halftime, drinks and oranges? And whose supplies did she think those were? Hitbit weren't providing refreshments. The crowd turns nasty and now they're starting to throw things!

Mary hardly takes note, she had a puzzle enough already. The way Maki just turned away and wandered off to grab a drink. She's more amazed anyone would let their guard down around her like this? But was that the point. It could be a trick or a trap... but it was worth finding out.

Kicking off she fair glides across the ground just slightly off centre angling in on her prey, a few rocks landing where she had been standing moments earlier. Arm held out to her side and crooked slightly she aims to wrap one powerful bicep in against that slender throat and start choking the fight right out of Maki.

Which could be even more of a problem if she had a mouthful of water instead of precious air.

Blue Mary        1/----===/=======|=======\=------\1             Maki

Being choked is never fun. Especially when you've got a mouth full of water. In fact, Maki's grandfather once did something similar to her when she was in training. She'd rather not think about it right now, since she's got another issue on her mind. It appears Mary wants to choke Maki with a mouth full of water, but Maki isn't about to let that happen. Quickly swallowing her water, Maki jumps back a couple times, giving herself room to breathe while watching Mary.

"Sorry, needed a little refreshment," Maki comments, albeit slightly sarcastically. "But now that I'm refreshed, I'm ready to fight again!" Maki steps towards Mary with her tonfa clenched tightly. "And this time I'm holding nothing back!" She steps in with her tonfa being swung at a fierce arc. "So watch yourself!" The strike is a specially coordinated strike done in time with Maki's forward step to add more momentum to the strike.

"Otherwise known as- running away."

Mary's is only vaguely amused by the nativity. Any real tournament would throw someone out for doing it. A real fight where lives were on the line, it'd be a battle lost or a chance for whoever needed to just- to escape. The End. Her voice rasps in the wake of the hit, again with picking on her visible injuries. At least her opponents managed to convey how serious they were by doing that.

Rather than letting the hit double her over she slid back with the blow, rolling that shoulder with the strike and taking a step back. One eye sliding closed and grimacing with the injury she bombastically spring right back into the attack rather than give Maki even the slightest reprieve. Mary would rather trade blows in order to get a firm hold on her opponent. The pounce toward that still extended arm and tonfa that had struck her, intending to land and balance precariously atop it while her spin to encircle her opponent's torso. She'll carry them both to the ground and wrench Maki's arm in its socket.

Blue Mary        1/=======/=======|=======\======-\1             Maki

That Blue Mary has some really neat moves... NOT! Maki finds herself really doubting herself against Blue Mary now as she finds the other blonde has her tightly, and now Maki's on the ground, finding herself wondering what will come next. She finds that out the hard way, unfortunately, as her arm is wrenched in the socket. This causes Maki to yell out loudly as her arm is wrenched, as this hurts quite a lot, even for someone like Maki. She struggles to get free, and is glad when Mary releases her finally. She uses her one good arm to push herself back up, gasping for air and feeling like she's just lost one of her arms for real.

"You've got me in a bad spot, I'll admit it," Maki says with a fierce glare. "But don't think you've won just yet. I'm still capable of coming back when you last expect it!" She attempts to kick at Mary's stomach, as her legs still haven't been injured too badly yet. Yet at the same time, Maki must make sure she doesn't move her bad arm too much, lest she be grimacing with pain again.

Blue Mary        2/<<<<<<</<<<<<<<|=======\=======\1             Maki

This kind of battle suited her just fine. With the release and roll-out Mary was intent on staying close enough to pose a threat. If the arm was disabled, that was bad news for someone who was used to and relied on a two weapon style of fighting. Debilitating if that's all they had in their bag.

"Then you'll have to get back up when I think you're out cold."

It was the only point she'd not expect something. The way she just plain forces her body back upright without even setting a hand to the ground. One arm was cradled across her stomach and face twisted in pain but the jape there was light-hearted. A blow fair struck was just that.

One foot crawls back and she pulls her arms forward and back, painfully dropping away from supporting her torso into what looks like a sprinters windup. Defense wouldn't win her this matchup. She'd have to run right overtop of this girl.

"Thanks for the heads up though. I'll keep it in mind."

The spring turns into a slide as she skims across the surface right toward maki's legs to tackle the poor girl into the a nasty leg submission...

That's a great try, Mary. But Maki, despite having a wounded arm, isn't about to let Mary do any more damage than she's already done. She watches Mary's movements carefully, and demonstrates how she can be acrobatic with only one good arm. She leaps into the air, avoiding Mary completely, and landing without problems on both feet. "Sometimes you have to think on your feet!" She comments, before stopping to look at her bad arm. She grabs it with the good arm and proceeds to bend it a little. The grimace on Maki's face shows she's not liking this one bit, but eventually she 'snaps' it back into place pretty much. It still hurts a little, but at least it's somewhat usable again.

"Now to finish things once and for all!" Maki says as she steps towards Mary, an aura of chi starting to radiate from her as she does so. "This has been a close battle, but it's time we ended this once and for all! After all, I don't intend on giving up my winning streak that easily!" As she steps closer, the chi aura grows in size. "I'm intending to fight to the finish, and if I have to take you down with me, then I will!" By now, the aura has become quite noticeable as Maki rushes at Mary, attempting to deliver a flurry of tonfa strikes with a few kicks added in for good measure!

Heh. Yeah, you did have to be quick on your feet. Mary watches maki bound away just somewhat chagrined, she was near spent and the girl still had all that energy. When she goes so far as to try and fix her arm in the midst of the fight. Clever girl.

She was impressed, that took some guts.

mary hunkers down, still gasping but waiting patiently for yet another announced attack. Always telegraphing her moves and challenging her opponents to keep up? Interesting fight style.

"What was that? Winning streak?"

Mary was just killing time, having some fun and getting some exercise in. She didn't really care overmuch for the tournament, weird goings on or win/loss ratio. So that's what has Maki so fired up? More power to her.

Mary kicks off and attempts to dodge the flurry of blows directed her way rather than leap headfirst into THAT. Pummelled and battered about by the rain of blows she bounces off the ground a short distance away and rolls to a stop in the dirt.

Seemingly unconscious she struggles with it, momentarily confused as to why she's even lying there and where everyone was.

That's right. There's no point just laying here. Painfully! Laboriously! Mary Ryan pushes herself back to her feet. Every moment and movement, difficult but when she does manage it she has to take the scene in all over again. That's right. I was here. I am fighting. She's okay with it and assumes a very rough fighting stance.

Maki watches as her opponent goes down to the ground, narrowing her eyes. She's not lowering her guard just yet, nor is she celebrating victory either. She knows the hazard of assuming victory as a foregone conclusion, and that could have serious repercussions in that case. So Maki stares at Mary, wondering if she'll get up again or not. "Come on," She mutters. "I'm ready for ya!"

Apparently, Maki's words ring true as Mary gets back up, still wanting to go at it. "So, you've still got a bit of fight left in you." Maki smirks a little bit. "Impressive, considering that's my 'finishing move' if you will. Not many people who go through that are able to get back up after that. So my hat is off to you!" The smirk then disappears. "But I'm afraid our chat time is over! I'm afraid I have to finish this fight for real this time!" Maki rushes in and attempts to deliver an over-the-shoulder throw to Mary.

Still on her feet and legs beginning to bow a little mary realizes she right on the edge, at her limit. Dangerous in the extreme she just didn't stay down. Not even when it was the easiest option in the world after receiving a beating like that.

It was all worth it then if she was 'impressing' her opponent. If she had the energy to waste she may have commented but was pooling everything she had left to keep on fighting. Behind Maki the crowds have reached their boiling point. The security wall buckles and wavers as the crowd shoves and threatens the security bodily. Violence could erupt at any second taking the protest all the way up the scale to full-blown riot.

Mary hardly resists the seizure and grapple as Maki attempts to finish her - but during the twist-and-throw portion of her move Mary Snakes a hand around her neck and seems to stiffen in the air trying to control the landing with yet another counter into a stranglehold and twist. Mary can't retain her grip, the slinging momentum throws her clean off and she lands heavily with 'fwump' some distance away. Tumbles to a stop, finally unmoving.

Almost right after the first of the security goes down, riot shield still in hand but with multiple people piling and bouncing atop it. The line broken. Withing seconds it turns into a full blown melee, guards going form trying to re-establish the line to forming into pockets to try and protect one another while the protestors are now free to batter away at them and throw anything they have at hand.

Of course, the guards are not the only targets of their aggression. One of the camera drones twitches and spirals around before plunging into the ground heavily; with some thrown object lodged in one of the rotors. The other drones scramble for more distance even as the crowd mob over any and every 'other' that isn't allied and likeminded they can find.

Maki watches as Mary fails to counter her, and she shakes her head a little. "It was a truly close battle. You fought well, Mary. I hope we can fight again sometime." She smiles a little, and steps over to try to help Mary up, but then her attention changes to focus on the other problem that she had forgotten about for the time being. The fact that the protesters were getting out of hand. And they've really gotten mad now it seems. In fact, security is of no use to them anymore as they've been overpowered. Maki scowls a little. "I can't believe they're doing this!"

Looking around for help, Maki is shocked to find that the protesters have taken over so easily. "What the hell? I thought these were supposed to be true security guards, not rent-a-cops!" She looks around some more, then kneels down to try to scoop up Blue Mary and carry her on her back. "I'm getting you to safety!" She says as she tries to run away from the protesters. A moment ago, they were enemies, but now Maki wants to protect her!

COMBATSYS: Maki has ended the fight here.
