SNF 2005.11 - Benimaru vs Andy

Description: Nothing can stop the Andynaut. The battle of the bishies ends up a suprisingly short one. (Winner: Andy)

The Saturday Night Fight is on yet again, on another brisk afternoon on another Saturday. The beach isn't overly occupied, at least not by beachers since it's so chilly out, but there are plenty of screaming, rowdy fans about to witness what is undoubtedly going to be recorded as 'Battle of the Bishies'.
This is also possibly one of the few matches where the women are heavily outpopulating the men here, shrieking, waving signs and whatnot while the announcer does his thing and pumps out the crowd.
The 'ring' isn't much of a ring, in fact the entire beach is fair game in this match-up, and leaning aginst the baracade that seperates the fighting area from the spectators area is Benimaru Nikaido, sporting a sleeveless. black turtleneck with a grey scarf about his neck and black jeans. He was actually signing some autographs, trying not to look -too- annoyed by the fact that once again he wasn't in the main event and was possibly the farthest he's ever been from it today. But that is until the announcer introduces the fighters as a signal for them to meet up face to face. To his called name, a deafening chorus of shrieks follow, and with a weak smile he makes his way to what he consideres the 'middle' of the fighting area.
And then Andy Bogard is called.... That name was familiar.

The crowds cheered, the fans waved and shouted, but the elusive Ninja was nowhere to be found? The crowds cries die down for a moment as it seems that Andy Bogard isn't going to show? This can't be happening. Then one clever fan decides to look up, and there upon atop a lightpole stands Andy Bogard.

Andy looks down at the event as they erupt once more. Clad in the white ninja garb of Shiranui-ryuu, his face hidden by a red scarf, the red flames stand out in stark contrast as Andy leaps down and lands opposite Benimaru. Andy stands tall without saying a word and crosses his arms.
This is Andy Bogard.

Andy has dropped a connection.

Benimaru didn't particularly care to look around for his opponent, taking a moment to reach into his back pocket and draw out his compact and then check his hair. Yes, as usual, he was looking at his absolute best. One thing Benimaru was at least happy about was that he'd be facing another male opponent. That in itself is a good day, he wouldn't have to hold back, and he'd look good doing it.
When Andy suddenly appears, baby-blue eyes peer past the compact, "... Oh," he murmurs, "I remember you now.. I think." he gives a bit of a helpless shrug, setting his compact in his pocket again just moments before the announcer shouts,
"Get ready... FIGHT!!"
But Benimaru, he doesn't even budge, just staring at the other blonde with a neutral expression.

COMBATSYS: Benimaru has started a fight here.

Andy             0/-------/-------|-------\-------\0         Benimaru

Andy stares coolly ahead at his opponent recalling everything he knew about him. Benimaru Nikaido original member of Team Japan - now fights in different teams to Kyo Kusanagi. A lightning fast opponent who's chi manifests as lightning, somewhat vain. Nothing he couldn't handle.

"Hmph!" Andy throws the scarf off his face and into the crowd of five ladies who leap and grasp for it in a desperate attempt to get their hands on Andy Bogard memorabilia.
"I should warn you, friend. I don't hold back," the Youngest Bogard warns his opponent before taking up a fighting stance. "That being said, may the best man win. En guarde!"
Andy charges into the first blow feinting with a few punches before aiming a kick at Benimaru's jaw.

COMBATSYS: Andy successfully hits Benimaru with Light Kick.

Andy             0/-------/-------|=------\-------\0         Benimaru

The reaction from the women.. They're actually rather amusing to Benimaru, but his scarf is just going to stay around his neck for now, thanks. Eyes focused on his opponent, his lips part to say something back at first, but then changes his mind, at least changes his mind about saying something rude, "Of course."
Benimarus stance still remains rather.. open for a moment, and he actually gets fooled into attempting to block one of the punches, the kick hits dead on, causing the man to grunt as he staggers back a couple steps. Suprised that his eyes didn't catch that, he simply shakes his head and then rushes forward, going for a quick 1-2 combination, a blow to the ninjas gut and then to his chest, "Hnf! Hah!"

COMBATSYS: Andy dodges Benimaru's Medium Punch.

[\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////////    ]
Andy             0/-------/-------|=------\-------\0         Benimaru

Andy's stance is tight and his fighting very fast paced, the young man bouncing on his feet as he dances around the 1-2 combo that Benimaru tried to plant on him. Andy pirouettes out of the way and with a speed and grace that dazzled the crowds Andy immediately fires back with a backfist aimed right at Benimaru's cheek. Which perhaps is the best way that Andy's subconscious can stop any rude comments. Andy's a nice boy, and he really doesn't tolerate rudeness.% "Hah!"

[OOC] Andy says, "Doh!"

COMBATSYS: Andy successfully hits Benimaru with Strong Punch.

Andy             0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0         Benimaru

Thus far, Andy is showing that.. His speed is just really something else here. Baby-blue eyes still locked on Andy, and fists rather close to his cheeks, his arm sweeps out in an attempt to deflect the backhand, and amazingly enough it breaks right through his guard and clocks him right on the face, face turning with the blow and a curse passing his lips as he winces, a nice red spot on his cheek now.
What the heck was going on here? There's no way Andy could be faster than him, could he?? Frustration becoming a little more obvious in his features, the fighter taking a couple of steps back to try and pull himself togeather, "... Pretty good."

COMBATSYS: Benimaru focuses on his next action.

[\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////        ]
Andy             0/-------/------=|===----\-------\0         Benimaru

So far so good, Andy thought as he returned to his fighting stance. Benimaru was a quick warrior, but Andy Bogoard - for the moment seemed to be quicker, and by the looks of things stronger. No reason to get overconfident quite yet, there's still plenty of time for Andy to lose this fight if he's not careful. Andy's face, in contrast to Benimaru's cold and calculating. "You're not bad yourself." he replied. Andy tensed his right fist and moved forward punching as fast as he could with an, admittedly weak blow, aimed right at his face. If you break Benimaru's confidence in his speed...the rest should collapse straight after.

COMBATSYS: Benimaru fails to interrupt Quick Punch from Andy with Super Inazuma Kick.

Andy             0/-------/-----==|===----\-------\0         Benimaru

"... Right," Benimaru mutters to Andy, so far he hasn't shown even a trace of skill in this match, but he supposed better an encouraging comment than a bitter one. Beni tends to be very protective of his face, and he actually anticipates that it'd be coming eventually. A slender bolt of electricity, violet in color swirls about his form, and attempts once more to outspeed Andy with no avail, his feet barely get off the sand before his popped in the face, right on the nose and quickly lifts his right hand to covered the bruised spot, "Gggh!" he groans, turning away for a moment, and quickly looks at his palm to make sure that he isn't bleeding.. Thus taking his mind off the fight for a moment.

Andy feels fist connect with fist with a satisfying bashing noise. Which was quite pleasing because Benimaru had something mean and nasty planned for the Youngest Bogard, and he really hated being electrocuted. It made his hair frizzy. You can not understandably understand how annoying that can get unless you've been growing your hair for as long as Andy has. "That was close..." he mutters as Benimaru falls to the floor.

Andy's supporters cheer wildly as they see their favorite Bogard dominating the match.
"GO ANDYYYY! YAY!" One lady in particular yells also drawing Andy's attention away from the fight.

Could Mai be watching and not have told him about it? Andy sighed. He cared about Mai, he really did but all those years of seeing her late grandfather Hanzo Shiranui as a father and her as a sister had been imprinted on his mind. It made confusing. So, lost in his thoughts Andy also stops.

COMBATSYS: Andy takes no action.

Andy             0/-------/-----==|===----\-------\0         Benimaru

Benimaru... grumbled. Very slowly, even if it was unintentional, Andy was starting to steal his fans! After realizing he was all right, he turns back to his opponent, and quite clearly isn't pleased with this turn of events. He needed to turn this fight around quickly or things were just going to get even more embarassing, "..." He's about to say something to Bogard but.. Noticing the distracted look on the other blondes face- He sort of feels a little cheap about going in while the opponent isn't focused, but the old saying goes 'desperate times'..
Benimaru sprints forward and then drops to the sand one one hand, eyes narrowing as it at first seems he's going for a sweeping kick, but then his entire body starts to helicopter furiously toward Andys legs, looking to tag him a good four or five times before he can even hit the ground, "Shinkuu- KATETEGOMA!"

COMBATSYS: Benimaru successfully hits Andy with Shinkuu Katategoma.
Glancing Blow

Andy             0/-------/----===|====---\-------\0         Benimaru

Andy see's Benimaru coming at the last second and he immediately shifts to a defensive stance, trying to leap over the attack, but the revolving kick manages to catch Andy's legs - the Youngest Bogard being kicked repeatedly in his legs which had only just recently healed after being fractured by Geese Howard. "UGH!" Andy groans and squints his eyes but he reflexively lands on his feet in typical ninja fashion.
"Hm, very nice!" Andy says placing both his hands on the ground, the Ninja violently pushes himself off the ground, vaulting himself at his foe feet first. "HAA!"

And the crowd, for both supporters go wild as the fight begins to really heat up!

COMBATSYS: Andy successfully hits Benimaru with Kuuha Dan.

Andy             0/-------/--=====|======-\-------\0         Benimaru

Benimaru screeches to a halt after his blows... Somewhat connect, and lets out a soft huff of air. It was going to be a very... Difficult climb from this point, and Andy comes zooming at him once more, Benimarus arms crossing up in front of him- and again the ninja breaks through his guard, both feet slamming into his chest and briefly knocks the wind out of him as he crashes into the sand, "Nngh!" a bit of dust kicks up from the impact, but he quickly scrambles to his feet once more, drawing his right fist back, and as soon as the ninja is on his feet, looks to slip forward and wrap his arm about the others waist. If he can connect, then he'd hoist the ninja up into the air and back onto the ground with a powerful spinning suplex, "HEYA!"

COMBATSYS: Andy fails to interrupt Front Suplex from Benimaru with Gekiheki Haisui Shou.

[          \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ////////////                  ]
Andy             0/-------/=======|=======\-------\1         Benimaru

After landing his Kuuha Dan, Andy rolls to his feet and moves to meet Benimaru's charge head on with an elbow strike followed with a series of palm strikes - Benimaru, unfortunately for Andy, had other plans. Andy suddenly feels himself being hoisted upward and then unceremoniously smacked into the ground. Great. Just like fighting Geese Howard all over again... He thought bitterly. Just without the whole getting my legs fractured thing...I hope.

The crowd however go nuts and cheer their heads off as Benimaru lands two hits in a row his fans go wild, and Andy's fans try to keep up cheering their man on!



Andy rolls to the side and stands up again, with a slight smirk on his face. Sure things aren't going in his favor right now...but it was the thrill of the fight they both longed for. To test their skills against other champions of martial arts. "Looks like things are just getting interesting."

It looks like Andy was going to try and finish the model off there, but now it's his turn to show that he's quicker than he looks as well.. Benimaru could tell that Andy was going for -something-, but that just makes him move just a little faster, and springs back after the slam.. Actually.. It seems like there's still an opening, but what should the model do? "Ah, so you aren't invincible after all.. That's always a good sign," he says half-jokingly, and he looks to keep the pressure on the ninja, hopping forwrd and snaps a kick at Andys leg.. It looks to be his weak spot, maybe it'll keep Andy off his game for a little while longe, "Hah!"

COMBATSYS: Andy endures Benimaru's Light Kick.

Andy             1/------=/=======|=======\-------\1         Benimaru

Andy's legs are in fact still a little sore, so when everybodies favorite Lightning Guy decides to use some of those lightning fast kicks against him Andy is hard pressed to stop them, let alone keep up with them, so he takes the attack...but his eyes. Andy's cold and calculating eyes never stray from Benimaru, even as he winces with pain, they remain focused.
"Hah, I guess not...but," smack! "...But! I've got my eyes on you!"

Andy's fans start cheering as they know what's coming up now. The Youngest Bogard charges forward leading with an elbow strike, and if he's lucky, he then unleashes with a rain of punches and kicks all over Benimaru's body finally finishing up with a gigantic Ki blast designed to be the final OUCH in this combo.
"Hishou--" Andy and his fans cry out in unison. "Ryuusei Ken!"

COMBATSYS: Andy successfully hits Benimaru with Hishou Ryuusei Ken.

Andy             0/-------/-------|=======\====---\1         Benimaru

It was only a matter of time for the model, really.. And while the fans have an idea what's going on, Benimaru does not, and the first thing he thinks when Andy goes for the strike is to just get out of the way. Which he sort of does, though the strike just hits somewhere else instead of his chest and he's helpless to the rest of the flurry of attacks.
Benimarus fans can't help but wince at the assault, and a collected gasp follows from the final blast that send the model flying back and crashing once more into the sand, digging it up a bit as he holds his side.
He groans lightly, looking to Andy again and just gives a light shake of his head- It wasn't even worth trying for another attack, he knew when he was beaten. Spitting out a bit of sand, he raises his hand and murmurs, "I concede."
There's a mixed response there, awws of disappointement as well as loud cries from the announced winner that the announcer screams at the top of his lungs.

COMBATSYS: Benimaru takes no action.

Andy             0/-------/-------|

Andy's fans cheer wildly as Andy Bogard wins the fight! Fans either cheer or commiserate as their man either wins or loses, but the greater cheers and claps from both sides is a grand celebration of the fight!

Andy respectfully bows in response to Benimaru conceding the bout and then raises his fist triumphantly to the crowd to a great standing ovation. Andy then turns and points to Benimaru who gets his own share of the clapping and cheering. Finally, in a show of even greater sportsmanship Andy offers Benimaru his hand to shake.
"Good fight, I look forward to our next meeting."

It's not an easy decision to make for the model.. He looks around a little, getting a little shakily to his feet and holds his side as he gives a weak smile to the rowdy gathering. He then stares at the offered hand a moment, but his then moves out to shake Andys, "It'll be different next time," Benimaru promises, the handshake itself making the crowd reaction even louder.
Well.. At this point, suddenly Benimaru is glad this wasn't the main event after all.
