Neo League 276 - #287: Rolento vs Sakura

Description: Sakura gets her power from videogames. No, srsly. (Winner: Rolento)

Skyscrapers blot out the setting sun, the sky a prismatic gradient of orange and pink, faint shadows cast from the "modern art" stone sculptures decorating this little plaza in the midst of Southtown's financial district. It's a good time for a Neo League fight! Just in case the match enters overtime, an array of floodlights stands at the ready behind the small army of cameras, protected from the throngs of onlookers by retractable barriers.
The Neo League scheduling department is erratic at best, downright confusing at worst. Sometimes the fighters just get a notification of where to fight and when to be there -- fighters can be named, or anonymous.
Needless to say, Sakura's not =entirely= sure what she's getting into here -- other than that it'll be a fight, of course. She's selected an orange-trimmed sailor uniform for this fight and blue handguards for this fight, and waits in the midst of the small 'stone garden' that's been selected. She doesn't seem to be nervous, though -- for she's in the midst of playing a game on her portable game system. Ho hum!

Well, apparently Rolento's little display in America drew a lot of viewers, given he was asked to fight someone else. Attempted murder on live television and then manhandling a little girl is good for ratings. After the debacle with Haggar, Rolento refused to do anything beforehand without being given a name, and when he found out who it was he became more then eager. Sakura is one of the better young talents, the very reason he has begun his campaign for the new generation -- to form the new future within the umbrella of U.S.P.L.!
Yet she seems apt to take this no more serious then ever before, observed from the helicopter up above. The sound of the classic helicopter would anew be the first hint. Having a handy way of escape and suppressive fire around at all times has saved his life on a couple occasions. But there's still only a few seconds before a yellow comet begins streaking down, tethered by one of his nigh-invisible lines. Again cutting off the descent and flipping forward, Rolento disengages while landing in a crouch.
"...Ah! Sakura Kasugano. So we meet... again!" Rising to his feet, Rolento adjusts his suit lazily. He's still rather sore from his latest savage beating, but few are as much a thorough cockroach as this commando. All the years of committing seppuku via grenades have toughened his withered body. "I have been hoping to pay you back for your interference within Metro City!!"

Kasugano... actually didn't know who she was fighting beforehand. Ink was smudged, mistakes were made, and she'd never bothered to look. She'd just seen an R and an O, and figured it was Roberto -- who fought Sean the night before.
Sure, the helicopters may have been a sign. But she was too engrossed in her game to pay any attention until the well-armed cockroach lands in a crouch right before her.
Kasugano looks up, over the edge of her game system, at the commando. It's a trying look, as if she's being bothered... but more because she doesn't recognize the face at first.
And right about the time she kicks into a backwards flip, game system shut off in mid air so that she can extend a long, accusing finger at Rolento upon landing, it seems she placed the man's voice. "YOU! You... pay =me= back!? Don't you mean pay back the city for all the loot you =stole?!="
The cameras are rolling, right? It seems Kasugano's forgotten all about the Neo League event in the heat of her accusation!

How one could ever forget the horrific scars arched across Rolento's pupil-lacking beret topped mug is a question for the ages, but one must never underestimate a pants-lacking game engrossed teenager! By golly that's a mistake this jaded fighter is never going to make again, no matter how peppy and bouncy his opponent might be. Although he can still be exasperated by her reaction, letting out a sigh.
"I did not steal from Metro City. I stole from America. I stole from insurance companies. The losses on a private consumer level was covered by my actions! Are you saying I should compensate for the heartless megacorporations that sever benefits to the dying when it becomes apparent they will not make a profit?" Rolento spits to the side. Just try to start a debate with him, little girl!
"Yet that is beside the point. Because of your unscheduled interference, I was only able to complete half my objectives. I am two for two in this pointless charade of brutality concocted by that idiot Ken Masters. You shall be my third." The baton is yanked out, twirled, then pointed towards Sakura.
...And that doesn't mean he has to fight fair in the slightest!
Lunging forward, one booted foot slides across the ground before he snaps out his weapon in a rather stoutly vicious blow towards... Sakura's hand, trying to smack that portable video game and send it crashing into the ground, hopefully very broken.

Well, there's the issue of focus. Try staring at a 256x192 pixel screen and then focusing on Rolento's mug and then let's see how well =you= fare! It's too much information for any mere mortal to handle!
"Y... you robbed jewelry stores and pawn shops! Those're good honest folks tryin' to make a living!" sputters Kasugano, debating Rolento's rhetoric with cold hard facts! "Okay, fine! Let me know when you plot your next big deal, and I'll schedule interference so you miss a hundred percent of your objectives!" Sakura grins smugly, switching her accusing finger to a thumbs-up!
It's a move that'll cost her dearly, though -- if primarily in the pocketbook, much like ALL OF METRO CITY -- as the video game system gets utterly rent from her hand and =destroyed= in a shower of sparks and mangled plastic. And a rather bruised-up hand. "Ow!!!" scowls Sakura, backpedaling as she shakes out her rather inconvenienced digits.
"H-hey! You just =now= caused losses on a personal level!" she hisses through gritted teeth, narrowing her eyes as she rushes towards Rolento. It doesn't seem she has any intentions to take it easy on the commando, starting off with her signature move: a punishing uppercut to the stomach! "SHOOOOU'OOOU KEN!" If it connects, it'd be hard enough to send the U.S.P.L leader flying!

"Consider it incentive to pay attention to this conflict!" Rolento snaps. "One of my grenades costs more then that worthless toy!" Indeed, the commando might as well be hurling wads of hundred dollar bills at people. It costs a lot of money to be diabolical. Of course, musing about the trials and tribulations of funding a war effort is similarly not good for swift reactions. An attempt was made to lunge backwards, but he's still given a stout whack in the chest for his trouble. Letting out a harsh gasp of air, Rolento lands upon his lower back before springing heavily, and landing high upon an adjacent wall, clinging a moment akin to a ninja.
Where uponhe somehow leaps impossibly high, gaining bizarre momentum which is further used to rapidly flash downwards from overhead, flipping once to add kinetic motion to a vicious chest-aimed sidekick. "HRRRRGH!" He is trying to return the favor by sending /Sakura/ flying! Let's see how she likes it!

"Well, you can play Nintendo for a lot longer than you can a grenade!" counters Sakura, sticking out her tongue afterwards. She's not in any great hurry though; even though she was surprised by Rolento, the young woman also knows what he's capable of. And when he flies back after her rather powerful strike, she knows he's far from down.
Indeed, she stays on the defensive, chestnut-brown eyes trailing him as he flies overhead in the waning sunlight, striking downwards with a kick. This time, her padded handguards are in the appropriate place, absorbing the blow as she's forced backwards, sneakers skidding across the hard stone floor.
She wouldn't like it, no.
"Just get off my case!" Kasugano twists about from the blow, aiming to plant a rather abrupt sneaker right in the middle of his stomach, before he can spring away again. "HYAAAAH!"

For a few moments Rolento is seemingly stuck in air, the force channeled into the kick still rather remarkable. Landing just a split second before the pantyshot special, it's indeed faster then he can safely roll away from. Oh, but Sakura forgets. Rolento can roll in any direction. Left. Right. And even... Straight up! Hopping airborne in a rapid spiral, he's only grazed by the proffered sneaker. His gentle arc takes the man overhead, whereupon he assaults from a decidedly difficult angle, snapping out his baton towards the back of her head in a stout and hopefully concussive blow. With any luck he will be carried past and land just as nimbly behind, to try and evasively backflip like some manic monkey in the direction of a lamp post! He's not planning to stay still for even a second.

The only guy who rolls more than Rolento is Dan Hibiki -- and even that is debatable. The fact that he's being so acrobatic =does= surprise the girl, though... as she'd expected him to be somewhere he's not. Whirling about to face Rolento, she temporarily loses sight of him -- and that's when she's brained by the baton! True to expectation, she staggers woozily to the side, finding it necessary to catch herself upon the ground with a hand for balance. Squinting back at Rolento, it seems like she might be having trouble focusing... "H-hey, that's no fair, there's three of you now..." Rising back to her feet, it would seem she's biding her time. For =something=.

COMBATSYS: Sakura focuses on her next action.

"You are being sadly predictable, Sakura Kasugano. I was hoping for a more invigorating conflict." Managing to perch on the light fixture, Rolento then once more takes to the air. Arms spread and baton loosely held, he twists with casual confidence and descends back-first in Sakura's direction. Yet before retaliation might be possible he twists, whirling around in a matter that spits in the face of physics to let out a vicious blow with his foot, aiming to hit Sakura in the stomach and send her skidding along the garden ground! The downside to this is his proximity. But he can handle being next to an angry Japanese girl for a few seconds, can't he...? The cameras though are eating this up. In this fight, Rolento is assuredly showing off his outright mobility to great effect!

Sakura           1/------=/=======|====---\-------\0          Rolento

Predictable? "... Well, sure! You hit me, I'm gonna hit you back!" Kasugano doesn't see this as any great surprise -- of course she ought to hit him back!
It just doesn't actually =happen= that way, for as Rolento careens close, the Taiyo dynamo curls her hands back with a cocky grin, bright blue flames sprouting in her palms. Maybe she was simply feigning disorientation?
Or maybe she's just overconfident -- as she gets nailed in the stomach before her chi attack can be brought to bear, arms and legs trailing in the wake of her sudden flight backwards. Rolento and Cameras #2 and #3 get a perfect view of the schoolgirl as her back slams into one of the amorphous stone sculptures, just before crumpling into a little heap.
She springs back to her feet shortly afterward, smoothing her skirt back into its proper position before resuming her formal defensive position. "At least I change my clothes every now and then!" she retorts, a bit late, and a bit lamely.

"And at least portions of my uniform remain strictly private!" Rolento points his baton in the general direction of Sakura's skirt, sneering in derisive amusement. "Your tactical usage of hadoukens is well documented. My attempt to bait you into a risk succeeded. This fight is proceeding exactly as planned." And Rolento's plans tend to last many moves into the future. Being part of it for even a small amount can be incredibly damaging, or end in humiliation as demonstrated with poor Blue Mary...
"Now to break what little concentration you have maintained...!" Surging forward, Rolento uses the bane of Guy and Haggar the first time they fought. His baton thrusts forward, with incredible range and penetrating power, leaving him almost entirely unable to be counter attacked. One hand guides it, as if he was shooting a game of pool, only the target is Sakura's solar plexus. Knocking the wind out of her should place the schoolgirl irrectifiably beneath Rolento for the rest of the combat!

Sakura's eyes flatten at Rolento's observation -- he's not the first to note it, and he certainly won't be the last. But Sakura refuses to be deterred by his attempts at driving the battle!
Seeing what Rolento's getting at, and being able to =do= something about it, are two entirely different things. Kasugano throws her hands up once she sees him moving, but blocking a moving object with as small a profile as his baton is a difficult task! She nonetheless gets nailed, and driven backwards a few steps -- again, according to Rolento's plan.
Yet, a confident smile returns to Sakura's face as she pushes back to her full height, fingers brushing through her bangs as she meets Rolento's gaze.
"Speaking of 'predictable'... don't you have anything more interesting to talk about?" Sakura pulls her hands back in a familiar fashion, rushing towards Rolento shoulder-first as the blaze of blue flame surges in her hands. But rather than stop short and hurl another of her predictable Hadoukens, she lashes forward with a skirt-flapping high kick! "HRAAAA!"

"If you wish to open an additional topic, do so at your leisure." Rolento mulls this somewhat lazily, observing the incoming Sakura. Yet she has subtle nuances that reveal the feint; Unless she wished for the maneuver to be clumsy and useless, her stance and inertia would have to be a certain way. And by literally looking at her feet, Rolento sees through it. That doesn't mean it's particularly easy to begin rolling backwards in time to avoid the kick given the need to be ready for a double-feint into what seemed to not be but actually was a Hadouken (Maybe thinking in layers has downsides), but in this case he manages. It's very short a tumble, deceptively so; And stopping himself with his baton he launches forward anew, clenching his fist and unleashing a lashing backhand towards Sakura's face in a signature pimpslap used in all of his televised fights since returning from Africa's congo. It must be a perfected technique, since he's yet to fail with it.

There's a first time for everything: Sakura pitches sharply to her right after her kick, effectively evading the blow by diving to the side. It probably looks completely ridiculous, but it served the purpose well enough! Besides, Rolento's not the only one in this battle enamored of tumbling.
After two quick revolutions upon the ground, Sakura throws her foot out and sharply flips to her feet. Squinting her eyes back at Rolento, it seems she's in perfect control -- and indeed, the blue flames in her palms had never =quite= extinguished. In fact, by this point, the ball of brilliant blue chi is actually quite large -- something which Rolento may find particularly annoying as it's practically being thrust into his face. "HADOOOOOUKEN!"

Sakura           1/----===/=======|-------\-------\0          Rolento

Well, there's a Sakura in his face. No time to tell her the many flaws of her rolling technique now. Instead he lunges backwards, unleashing a single grenade that clatters on the ground and instantly detonates!! Yet the backlash is far more then Rolento expected, knocking him off-balance and preventing the rest of the assault that could of potentially ended the fight. Sliding to a stop, teeth are grit. This was not part of his equations. Not at all! Getting back to his feet and letting out a sigh, it's still obvious who has a significant advantage. Rolento was hit a single time, and has carefully conserved his energy. He's got no advantage at the moment, unless one considers a lack of feelin' super. He'll build up preparation for another high ordinance strike shortly. "Acceptable. Yet your best opportunity was insufficient. How do you plan to overcome the gap between us?"

Kasugano blinks as her Hadouken is swallowed up in a storm of explosions -- not to mention, a few unexploded grenades. Pausing to scratch her nose in dismay, she turns her gaze over towards the ever-talkative Schugerg. Twirling her left finger at the defective ordnance, she quips, "Well, first off, you'd better take those back for a refund!"
But even while she's talking, Kasugano's cooking up another plan. Her feet shuffle to the side sharply, her hands swaying along behind her. It looks more like an exaggerated ice skater's motion than that of a trained fighter, actually. But when the girl twists to face Rolento, =another= brilliant ball of flame is already in her hands, in complete defiance of the 'must charge for twenty episodes' rule. How's that for unpredictable? "SHINKUUU HADOOOOOUKEN!" she shouts as the pulsing, crackling energy thunders its way towards Rolento, her skirt and headband fluttering into from the void left in its wake.

Well, here comes a ball of scorching blue death! This is actually what Rolento had been waiting for; The relatively smaller onslaught earlier was simply prime opportunity, at least at first glance. He has little recourse beyond throwing up his arms and bracing, struck dead center and blast backwards. Skidding for a few meters, Rolento's back slams into a tree, before just prior to shattering the commando's guard the ball o' energy dissipates in a flash of heat, leaving Rolento bewildered. It certainly burned like the dickens, but he still seems to be in fit condition. Now that Sakura has no more tricks up her sleeve... It is only a matter of time. "I believe we should wrap up this encounter..." Rolento cracks his neck to either side, huffing out a long breath. "You may forfeit at your leisure. I do not enjoy pointless engagements with no political stakes. Your loss is guaranteed." Ever so smug and arrogant. "At least you have performed well enough... That I will not need to make a message of you like that weakling." What was his name again? A moment to think. "Sean Matsuda." Smirk.

Sakura -was- a bit tweaked out about Rolento's treatment of her current boyfriend. It's =one= of the reasons she wanted to kick Rolento's butt personally, really.
Not that she's doing a great job of it, mind.
As for her response to such an obvious bait? Sakura just =grins=. She's been reminded enough of Rolento's tactical use of bluster, in recent memory, and the fact that he's trying to force her to action again is... well, it appears to be amusing her.
"How's that saying go? Don't count your chickens before they're hatched?" Kasugano shrugs mildly, walking towards one of the statues. There's a few still standing, despite the numerous explosions. "You seem to have forgotten that it's hard to keep me down, Rolento!" Leaning one hand against the statue, she seems... ridiculously complacent for someone who could fall over at just about any moment.
Smiling, she shrugs her shoulders. "I think you're the one who --" And in mid-sentence, she sharply springs off the statue, catapulting herself towards the statue nearest Rolento. "-- ought--" Rapidly, she springs off =that= as well, careening like a human missile for the commando! "-- to resign!" Though... unlike the obvious, she's aiming for a point =past= Rolento, hoping to catch her arm just under his throat for a rather punishing pin to the floor!

Well, that's certainly a display of acrobatics worthy of Rolento, but he has no intention to go easy. She might not fall into some manner of reckless assault, but that doesn't change the fact she's significantly injured. With a few sharp pokes she should fall over and stop moving for the foreseeable future. Taking a few wary steps away, at the last moment Rolento starts to rollrollroll backwards along the ground. Yet at the end of this motion, he jams his weapon into the ground and stretches it. Before rapidly popping forward, utilizing this intertia to whirl forward and aim a bone-shattering blow for her shoulder, trying to send her to the ground. PERMANENTLY! Well, at least in terms of finishing this encounter. "I am aware! That is why I have been patient. With proper planning and careful management of my endurance, you are simply a gnat! The true game... is seeing how long until you STAY down!"

Sakura           0/-------/----===|=------\-------\0          Rolento

Sakura plants both hands on the ground, tossing herself into a roll of her own as she senses an impending faceplant. She's quick in recovering, at least, one tumble bringing her right back to her feet. But it would seem Rolento is quicker, bringing himself up close and personal! Kasugano tries to retaliate with a quick uppercut to the chin, but his blow lands true, rapping her across the shoulder and sending her spiralling to the ground. She's =quite= obviously in pain, here!
But, true to form, she's down but not out yet! Rolling sharply to the side as she clutches her left shoulder, the determined girl glares back at Rolento, fresh as a spring day despite her numerous wounds. Resignation sounds like a =really= good idea -- but the fire in her eyes refuses to extinguish. Gritting her teeth in a tight smile, she shakes her head slowly from side to side: she's not giving up yet.

"I can see you will not submit without a thorough beating!" Rolento grunts, landing heavily and then charging forward once more, in a seemingly suicidal charge. His baton begins to twirl in a frantic manner, right arm rearing back before -- thoop! Striking out with a rapid-speed poke, aiming to smack Sakura right in the eye. This maneuver has been oddly useful in the worst of times in this encounter. Knowing exactly what to do to bring an opponent down without applying too much pressure is top of the list. Once he tastes blood, he almost never fails to draw it. "Mission complete!" ...Although likely just the beginning mission. If it does hit home, Part Deux is likely to follow...

Poked in the =eye?= It's probably a good thing Sakura sensed some kind of intentions and swerved sharply to the side in evasion; instead gets poked in the cheek for her trouble. Almost as bad, not quite as painful -- but she still temporarily loses vision in the eye from the sudden impact.
Reeling backwards, she drops to her knees, one hand going to her face from the blow, her good eye glaring up at Rolento. "C'mon, dude, that was the most boring fight I've ever been in. You were =totally= scared." Smirking, she tosses her head to the side, defiant. She may be exhausted, after all -- but she isn't going to just roll over in ignoble defeat!

There's a tension now within Rolento, and it seems that Sakura hit a nerve. "...Scared?!" That might be close to the truth! He definitely played it by the books excessively, took no chances, and whittled her down. But, uh, that had no connection to him fearing the younger generation. Definitely not! "Negative! Absolutely negative! My goal was utter defeat. And my objective was completed. Insane chances and fanciful engagement is a deterrent to victory, not a perquisite. That is one of the many lessons I hope to teach the inane public through my participation in this series of tournaments!!" Rolento seems to be rather aloof now, but it seems the fight is called. "Although you lasted much longer... You are in the same state as Sean Matsuda in the end. Merely further proof... That Ansatsuken is a watered-down sport for children and amateurs." Reaching up to his harness, one of his grenades are yanked off. "Although I have no intent of killing you, I can offer a consolation prize for your brazen disobedience! Hmmhmmhmm!" And then in a gentle underhand, he tosses the grenade along the ground towards Sakura. And after a couple bounces and panic from the Neo League filmers, it goes off with a spectacular explosion! The helicopter ambles overhead, line flashing down and gripped by a gloved hand amidst the smoke and dying flames. "Judgement! Grade D! Switching to a more combat-effective style advised!!"

Sakura may have =lost=, but seeing the twitch in his eye, and hearing the plethora of hastily-formed denials seems to be worth it for the girl, smiling smugly from her lower vantage point. Watered down? Kasugano doesn't seem particularly impressed by his rhetoric -- she knows she's gone toe-to-toe with him enough times for there to be =some= mutual respect there. And she knows =he= knows it also.
Which is probably why he sent a grenade to finish the job. =That= gets Sakura off her high horse. The fight's been called, she's played her hand, but she's =totally= out of energy. Eyes widen at the falling grenade, rolling over to her -- a hand swipes out in a vain attempt to swat the ordnance aside, but she's not able to slap it away before detonation.


When the smoke clears, Sakura's face, arms, and thighs are completely black with soot. Her hair, swept back in ways Alma and Benimaru would swoon over. Her uniform top and skirt are in tatters. But... there's a completely unruffled portion of her face, in the shape of the hand she'd been holding over her eye.
Expelling a frustrated sigh, Sakura glares up at the helicopter, muttering one word under her breath as she teeters to the side in utter exhaustion.
"... Jerk."
