SNF 2006.11 - Follow! Yamazaki vs Kasagis

Description: SNAPSHOT: On the left, Jiro Kasagi, eyes wide and indignant, jaw slightly slack with shock and outrage. On the right, Mimiru Kasagi, one finger primly held aloft, lips parted as she speaks with an air of certainly, and in her other hand, what appears to be a golden apple. Above them, Yamazaki with a wild and terrifying grin, frozen in time just feet above them as he hurtles down from far above. (Winner: Yamazaki)

The epithany of sound! The Sydney Opera house is designed to maximize the acoustic potential, where the seats are built of better-resonating material. This allowed the musicians to hear their own works as they play. The center stage has small spotlights around. The carpeting in the back is red. Outside are a numerous amount of seats circularly spreaded. A field of beige color with a bit of red lining for the seats itself. Many fans are here.
Of course, what they are likely hearing are the Kasagi family members aruging. Amusingly, Yoko isn't present? Or is she? God help the Aussies if the Kasagi family was completely at the stage.
The Stray Dog is wearing the usual attire consisting of the grey sleeveless shirt, loose black cargo pants and a pair of combat boots. Of course, he isn't without the signature leatherstraps on his head. Jiro is currently looking at Mimiru with an incrudelous look. They are -arguing-, but -WHAT- are they exactly arguing about?"

That's one of the reason why you never see all of the Kasagis together. Two will make a tragedy, the third one added to all of this might result into calamity. At least, right now there's only two of them, so the damage will remain and stay limited. And what a better place to do such a thing than an opera, no? There's nothing more fitting than here to illustrate just a part of this special family's life, another chapter that's about to unfold, but this time right in front of the eye of countless fans in the whole world...
A fitting stage for this 'show' to go on. And now, the main program of this little reality show.
"You know, it's the easy three step hook-up. 1) You bring her to your bed. 2) You bone her. 3) You marry her... You know, I don't understand... Why did you skip step two already? That's like, the best step, and you totally screwed up... Again." Heaving a soft sigh, Mimiru shakes her head and she turns on her heels, as if she had enough of the discussion, "No wonder you never manage to hook up with any girls, you always forget the most important stuff! You're like, what, almost an adult, and you've never had any girlfriend! Here I thought you finally had a chance to score and, well, you pulled a 'Jiro' on it, ahah..."
Sparing a glance over to Jiro, Mimiru turns around on her heels and her lips curl into a wide grin, lifting a finger up, "You know whatcha gonna do? Start being a real man! Or else you're gonna be on your own all of your life. Let little sis take care of it all, she'll find you some nice girl, you'll see," She gives Jiro a nod and says, "And of course, you'll have to follow my advice! No more screwing up with the second stage, or else that leads to that kind of problems," She shakes her head and muses out loud, "Man, I bet that must make mom pretty sad, I mean, I bet she's ashamed of yourself..."
Mimiru then strides back to Jiro's side, trying to rest one hand on his back, "So alright, I hope you understand why you gotta listen to me, right? 'cause if you don'T you're aiming straight for a loner's life... And that kinda costs a lot, you know, I mean," She lifts her hand up and begins to count on her fingers, "There's the porn magazines, and then there's the tissues, and after that you have to add the lube... You're never getting out of this under fifteen bucks, where as, you could get it freely if you pulled off the right moves. So... You got to understand that, this is for your sake... Hum... Maybe that last girl isn't a totally hopeless case! Wanna try to reel her back in...?"
Considering what this is all about, one can understand why it's an 'argument' they're having... Poor Jiro.

There are times when Jiro usually ignores his little sister. Yeah, this isn't one of those times. The Stray Dog stares at the litttle girl with an irritated look, "She was a knocked out, you little runt! I can't take advantage of a person while they are asleep, no matter what!" He growls at Mimiru, twitching an eyebrow as he says, "A 'Jiro'?! What the **** does that mean? That's bullshit!" He glares at the litle girl, twitching repeatedly. This is one of those days where he is opening up his defensiveness to his little sister.
Screw the people. If they're watching. Whatever. Jiro isn't going to realize the mistake until he suddenly remembers a little thing called 'Area Awareness'. For now, he is happily ignorant in favor of arguing with his little sister. "Oh -hell- no! The last time you gave me stupid advice, I ended up putting up with Gabriel, that psychopathic bitch! I made myself look ridiculous in front of Acacia. Every advice you had given me has been demeaning, annoying, and just plain stupid."
He stares at Mimiru, "Porn magazines? Everything else? Now you're just being ridiculous." He stares, "How the -HELL- have you been learning all of this? And why the hell am I getting advice like this from my younger sister?!" He growls irritibly, then he mutters before he facepalms, "I swear..."
Granted, he doesn't say anything about Mimiru's last question. No denial, after all.

Though quickly, Jiro replies, "Also, as for Ingrid, it turned out to be a joke. I caught onto that crap immediately. It was to 'be careful about having girls in my bed or they'll think I actually did do something'." Pause. "Shut up."

Trying to act all intelligent and knowledgeable-like, Mimiru coughs and she straightens herself up. It's in time like these that Mimiru wish she had some glasses like Himeko, so she could adjust them on her nose and give herself a little professional look on the matter. She clears her throat and she says, "Ahem, well, perhaps your flirting techniques need a little bit of refinement," Mimiru simply says, "Yeah, a 'Jiro'. You know, you may be all badass and cool, but in school, that's kinda frightening for some girls. There may be a few of them who may think it's cool, but you gotta look it up. Being all dark and badass isn't a winner attitude," Mimiru says with a nod of her head.
Mimiru then frowns at Jiro and she rests her hands on her waist, "Oh yeah? Well maybe if you DID apply MY advice correctly it would have turned up right and you would have gotten a strike!" Folding her arms in front of her chest, Mimiru turns around on her heels and she tilts her head to one side, "How do I know, huh?" She asks, sparing a glance over her shoulder. Her lips curl into a malicious smirk and she lifts a finger up, "Well! I know about your secret stash ~/o" Mimiru muses out loud, "Every boy your age has one! And I know where it is!" Of course, this may be a total gamble or bluff, with Mimiru, one never knows.
"No, I won't shut up. You'll have to force me," She teases with a smile, "I see... Well that's a shame, you should have seized the opportunity while you could. Play along with her game and... Strike, boooyaaaa!" Mimiru exclaims.
Mimiru frowns and then adds, "Why'd you listen to me? Well, 'cause you wouldn't do better. And 'cause you're totally unable to get a girlfriend on your own, right? So, hum, out of curiousity, just how many girls rejected you before, huh?" She asks, wiggling a finger up, "I bet that must be enough to prove my point...! No? 'side I'd like to hear any of your 'aventure' that actually turned out well. Well, any, huh, huh? Acacia, Kula... Gabriel... Hum, did you try to hit on Hotaru too? Well that surely didn't work out if that was the case! Did you try your luck on other fighters? Maybe that chick with a blade? I gave her a puppy, she's nice, but... Eh." She stroke her chin, "There was Alma too... Oh wait... Hum, I guess we shouldn't count him, but you still failed to sleep with him. I hope you at least got a good kiss from him?" Mimiru asks.
She glances over to Jiro and her lips curl into a smile, heaving a sigh, "Well, he might have a whole big zero for verility, but he sure knows how to kiss... Well, actually, not really, but I've always had a weak spot for pretty boys,"

It was very, very hard for Yamazaki to bring himself to interrupt this pleasant conversation. There's a certain small part of him that enjoys family bickering. In his mind, this is probably what holidays are like. Ridiculous arguments, constant in-fighting, bickering. Ah, Hallmark should have cards for shit like this. But there's business to be done, and he's spent far too much time pacing around in this catwalk, pacing like an irritated feline. The pop of his knuckles is lost to the increasing tone of voice on Jiro's part, and the crack of his neck is lost amidst Mimiru's response. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth he goes, just waiting for what seems like an opportune moment to make his entrance.

And while Yamazaki paces upstairs, the SNF-hired announcer begins his portion of the day's events. "LADIES aaaaaand GENTLEMEN! Without further adieu, it's time for this week's Saturday Night Fight to begin!" This is directed to the crowd, during the argument between Jiro and Mimiru. He's not going to wait for them to finish bickering; that could take forever. "First! Already on the stage! The Stray Dog, Jiro Kasagi, and the sole practitioner of the Super Way of Mimiru, Mimiru Kasagi!" It's at this point that an object is launched onto the stage, rolling just a few feet short of both Kasagis' feet. It's shaped like an apple, appropriately sized, and golden. "Jiro! Mimiru! As per the rules of this week's fight, this is your 'control object'! The fighter holding this object has control over the other Kasagi, and it'll be a violation of the rules if you don't listen! After your first rule violation, any further violations will result in deductions from your winnings! This rule will be in effect until the match has concluded!" There's a few seconds of stalling before the announcer kicks in again. "And the other participant! The unpredictable, the strongarm for hire.. Ryuji Yamazaki! Now, the crowd's getting impatient, and so am I! LET'S GET IT ON!"

Oh, this was just what Yamazaki was waiting for. He hops up onto the railing of the catwalk, eyes narrowed as he hones his sights in on his targets. ... oh, how convenient. Look how close they're standing. Those thickly muscled legs coil just for a moment before Yamazaki HURLS himself off the catwalk. That high-pitched, insane cackling starts to echo through the entire Opera House as a black-clad, blonde-haired missile hurtles down at Jiro and Mimiru. He's moving at high speeds now, arms extended, and he's aiming to clothesline both Kasagi siblings as his own personal way of saying hello.

"Flirting is not my forte and I don't try to make it, you...." He growls under his breath, twitching a few times, "That is the lamest accusation that I have ever heard. I don't look to be cool. I aim to crush things that get in my way. Plain and simple. Besies, I have -other- things to deal with." Then, the young man double takes abut the secret stash, which causes him to ferverishly growl at Mimiru, "I do -NOT- have a secret stash!" He twitches repeatedly, then he looks around to -notice- the crowd.
He pales. A lot.
Although, he does frown when Hotaru is mentioned. "...Eh." He shakes hishead, then he double-takes once more, losing that moment of sadness as Alma is mentioned. "_OH HELL NO_! I am _NOT_ going the gay way! Alma and I have never done anything and I'll be damned if I become a Backstreet Boy reject!" He snarls out, then he looks around at the crowd and then the announcer.
He grumbles, "I can't believe I chose a public place to hold this.." The Stray Dog looks forward to see Yamazaki come forth with the clothesline. A growl intones from the Stray Dog. Using _HIS_ own move against him?! We'll see about that. The Stray Dog lifts both of his arms up and draws a guarding position to help cushion the blow of the ramming clothesline a little bit. This pushes Jiro back slightly, but he soon draws a his right fist back, then he lunges forward to draw his fist against Yamazaki's face, then he aims to follow through with a leaping right roundhouse kick.
The apple can be damned for all that Jiro cares. Sadly, Jiro might end up regretting it.

What the hell? Mimiru wasn't expecting the fight to start up so soon! But hearing the announcer, guess it's finally time. The girl arches a brow and she tilts her head to one side, "Huh? What's that...?" She says, half-listening to what had been said.
Mimiru blinks and she simply stares at the apple that's being thrown at them, right at their feet and she kneels down to get her hands on it. In fact, that actually allows her to be too low for Yamazaki to actually clotheline her... And since Jiro has already blocked the incoming clotheline, it also saves Mimiru from any redirection of his attack he could have done. She blinks and lifts her gaze up, lips curling into a smile as she straightens herself up.
For the time being, Mimiru decides to let Jiro handle things. She has the apple in one hand, so she can't really do anything, no? Well sort of, "Yeah, well you take care of him," Mimiru says, gesturing with one hand, "But anyway, you're not going the gay way. You can just call it an 'experience'." Mimiru says with a nod of her head, "Beside, Alma's pretty cute, right? Come on Jiro, I want to hear you say it, just like I do! 'cause I have the POWER of the APPLE!! So say it," She grins and turns on her heels, giggling, "That's right, pretty blonde, with such a soft voice, and a nice butt too. Right, Jiro?" She grins and just watches for the time being, "Lovely lips, but... Eh, he doesn't know how to use his tongue right, but I think he'd got potential. Come on now Jiro, you can repeat after me,"
Ahh, well, what use is this apple if not for that? Not like Mimiru's going to tell Jiro what to do while he's fighting. Let's just see if he's willing to play the game to that point.

There's a slight re-direction of Yamazaki's flight path as his arm only hits one person; he ends up angling a little as he skids down to a stop, one shoe-heel dragging across the stage for a moment before he tucks into a roll to prevent slamming his face into the opera house's floor. There's a bit of internal growling as one arm went completely off-target, and she didn't even see it coming. Feh. Whatever. He's got other things he needs to worry about now; like Jiro. He hops back up to his feet at the end of his roll, and back around to face both Kasagis. His right hand nestles itself carefully into its pocket, and he angles his left shoulder down just a little. One eye narrows, and he murmurs quietly to himself. Amidst the murmuring, his arm just... loses all life. It's still healthy-colored, but it dangles from its socket as if it were dead, and it just moves back and forth akin to a metronome. Finally, the murmuring stops, and Yamazaki snaps his head up. "You've got better things to pay attention to than your boyfriend, nancy-boy!" That left arm suddenly surges back into motion, and Yamazaki pulls his shoulder up right as his arm lashes out; the blur of motion almost looks to extend beyond the limb's normal dimensions, and he curls his fingers into a fist right just a few moments before it gets to its target: Jiro's face.

Once Mimiru has the apple, the Stray Dog hears Mimiru's command, which involves calling the matter an 'experience'. "...You gotta be ****ing kidding me!" He glares at Mimiru, losing his attention in favor of growling at the younger girl. The Stray Dog -growls- with annoyance. He can't believe this crap. "**** Y--..." He sighs, getting ready to say it.
...Then Yamazaki comes out with the incoming flash of a fist towars his face, which causes Jiro to fall back on he ground, holding his face while swearing numerous of unhappy words. The Stray Dog, needless to say, is a little tired of this.
First, he will answer Mimiru. He deadpans the giggle, "Hehehe." He snarls, "That's right, pretty blonde, with a soft voice, and a nice---- **** THIS! I'm going to be sick!" He turns his face at Yamazaki, forming two white spheres to burn in his grasp. The burning flames dance in his hands, then he tosses them out towards Yamazaki, "Suck it, asshole!"
The spheres start spinning around like a torpedo, zooming in on Yamazaki.

Mimiru blinks at the hard time Jiro's having. Perhaps she should give him a hand... But then again, he hardly played along with the game! Mimiru blinks and she tilts her head to one side, "Ah come on, Alma ain't that different from a girl, you know. He just lacks breasts... And got a little extra, aside from that..." Mimiru waves her hand in the air idly. She shakes her head and heaves a sigh, "Man, Jiro, you're definately no fun," Mimiru says. "You need to do whatever I want, you're not playing along,"
Mimiru tilts her head back and she comments, "Yeah... But then again, maybe I should stop. I guess thinking about Alma's butt got you all day-dreaming and you're getting smacked now, okay, okay..." She says. Enough with all of the mockery though, time to give Yamazaki a distraction, or else, Jiro's going to take a beating. And with a bit of luck, she might be able to have Jiro do whatever she wants!
Right after those sphere were hurled at Yamazaki, Mimiru dashes toward him and lunges at him. She leaps at him and attempts to tackle-pounce him, "Here comes Mimiru!" She shouts. With a bit of luck, she might suceed in doing so, and in the process, let a blast of chi escape her hands and knees to bounce off of him and land away.

"... did you just tell me to suck it? And you're trying to convince people you're not a flaming queer?" Again, that grating, cackling laughter starts to fill the stage. "Bullshit!" He throws his arms up in an X across his upper torso, and the pair of spiralling projectiles slam against his forearms. "What a joke." It's then that he hears the call of Mimiru behind him, and he looks over his shoulder... and just cocks an eyebrow. "You've got to be god damn kidding me." He doesn't even move. He just keeps that eyebrow lifted, and the chi-charged attack slams against his shoulders... and the blonde doesn't even move. Instead, his right hand just flicks free of its pocket, with a black rectangular object resting in it. The object starts to twirl in his fingers as he turns away from Mimiru. Dress-shoe heels start clicking against the stage as he starts charging right back towards Jiro. His right hand flips back, and there's a brief -clik- as one half of the rectangle flips back to expose a switchblade. The hilt settles back into his palm a moment before his charging stops, and his right hand comes down in a fierce diagonal backhanded slash, starting high and going down towards Jiro's face and upper torso. Should the first slash connect, he comes back across in a forehand slash to the torso, then a second backhanded slash with his hand coming back up to mimic the first attack.. and a fourth slash, coming across horizontal at torso level again.

"I am trying to figure out why the **** everyone seems to pair me off with _ALMA_ of all people." He growls in the most annoyed manner, "Whatever, I don't care for any other commands, but if I get mixed up with that bitch anymore..." Jiro suddenly reconsiders entering the next Saturday Night Fight, with that sudden lingering fear of an Alma and Jiro versus some guy with some special rules between him and Alma.
Then, Yamazaki earns a growl as Jiro becomes thoroughly annoyed. "Shut...up...!" The Stray Dog lunges towards Yamazaki, who is drawing the knife at the face and upper torso. The Stray Dog leans his had back a bit, only to be knicked by the knife. That itself exposes a bit of blood to let out, but then he is nailed hard with the uppe torso, then the back hand slash against the face, torso, and once more. This causes Jiro to sprawl back, landing on his stomach. With blood coming from his face and the stomach, the Stray Dog coughs. "Shit..."
~ ...There are days when I wondered if I should had tried electricity... less queer-related jokes my way. ~
Benimaru comes to mind.
"...God damnit, I hate this day." He coughs up blood, trying to get back to his feet.

Mr. Big works on DUKE'S CHARISMA... with his batons.

That's definately no good. Mimiru had put so much effort into this! She thought she had found the perfect opening to strike and give him no opportunity to defend himself, and she made this as quick as possible yet... Well he just shrugged it off. That was pretty badass, and pretty intimidating in a way. The girl bounce off and lands back on her feet, staggering a little. She blinks a few times and bites her lips, wincing a little as Jiro's taking a beating and yet, Mimiru more or less fails to come to his aid.
Unfortunately, there's a limit to being sadistic. After what Jiro's taking, Mimiru doesn't really feel like giving him more orders or what to do. She just glances at the apple for a moment and throws it off away. As if she needs it, it'll just come in her way through the fight, and at this right, Jiro's not going to hold on much longer.
While Yamazaki focuses his efforts on Jiro, Mimiru tries to attack him another time. Hopefully this time it'll be more successful than the last one. She rushes toward him and concentratres, turning on her side to give a powerful kick right behind Yamazaki's right knee, channelling her chi through her kick to give an extra surge of force at that kick.

Yamazaki was just about to prepare some sort of witty sort of comment for the downed, bleeding Jiro, but he had momentarily forgotten about his sister. More like put her out of his mind. That last attack was pathetic, so he decided to focus on the more current problem; Jiro. Much to his chagrin, however, he takes a chi-charged foot right in the back of his right knee, and that sends him into an impromptu forward roll. He tumbles a couple times, then he comes up in a kneel right next to the recovering Jiro. "Son of a bitch.." He looks back over his shoulder for a moment, then points back. "Everybody gets one, now you sit your ass back there and wait your turn!" That same hand that's currently pointing back comes right back around again, and he balls that hand into a fist. Jiro's at a convenient level in his semi-rising point, and the Yakuza enforcer brings his fist across, aimed right for the same spot that the Stray Dog already got hit by the Snake Tamer.

This is not good. Jiro is slowly staggering to get up on his feet. Between fighting Yamazaki, putting up with the queer jokes and what not. Jiro is not in good condition as far as fighting goes. The last couple of blows from Yamazaki has proven that. The young man is -very- beaten, and that last punch does not help at all. With the fist striking his face, the blood continues to pour from his face. His body is staggering back a little more, as he is dropped to one knee.
~ No... I can't lose like this... It... it can't end like this! ~
He drops to the other kneee.
~ Shit.... SHIT! SHIIIIT! ~
His eyes narrow towards Yamazaki as he forces his body to continue on. Willing himself for one last show, the Stray Dog channels the chi to erupt along his hands, igniting with white fames. Formed by his own fury, the passionate flames of wrath are given life and grows through the festering rage digging inside of him. Although while bloody, his mind and chi screams out the rage as Jiro thrusts the fist out towards Yamazaki.
With the determination in his eyes, the young man is allowing the rage to fuel the flames, then the flame burst to grow a 'tail' at the end, leaving the trail of flames to dance along his entire arm and beyond that as he moves towards Yamazaki.
Vandal Breaker activates.
Following the swinging punch will be an explosion of a huge white shockwave by the flaming chi, lashing out against Yamazaki like wildfire. The explosive, uncontrollable rage is somehow honed together, just to take out Yamazaki and everything behind him.
Despite of the chi showing the rage, it does, in the end, come from Jiro. As that chi is released, Jiro will soon black out and collapse limply on the ground.

COMBATSYS: Jiro can no longer fight.

It's time to take things seriously. It's a little late to actually -start- it but it's not like Mimiru has much of a choice now. Jiro may claim that he's not done yet, but it's obvious that he's running on his last breath. Mimiru gives him his last moment, his last outburst of energy.
Looks like Mimiru will have to play this a little more defensively if she doesn't want to take a beating like Jiro did. Guess that means she'll have to switch to 'jujitsu' self defense style instead of using her Super way of Mimiru. Knives hurt a lot after all, and the last thing she wants is to be bleeding all over.
Right after Jiro's done with his final attack, Mimiru attempts to curl up behind Yamazaki and wrap her arms around the man's waist. And then, with the good posture, Mimiru uses lifts him off the ground over her head, throwing herself back to hurl Yamazaki off over her head and slam him down.

Yamazaki would have to admit, after the fight, that it was an impressive final attempt. The fight was still going, though, and there were better things to do than rub his chin in an analytical fashion and nod his head. He's got a shockwave of fiery chi threatening to overwhelm him right now. ... yes. Adding insult to injury. Rather than attempting to get out of the path of the inferno, Yamazaki throws his arms out wide. "YOU'RE DONE, YOU LITTLE SHITBAG! YOU CAN'T HURT ME!" The Enforcer throws his head back, cackling that high-toned laugh as he's overcome by fiery pain. The Vandal Breaker makes Yamazaki disappear inside it. Seconds pass, and the fire disappates... and there Ryuji is. Standing, arms wide, head thrown back in what must be, to him, the funniest thing ever. He's laughing loud, cackling until the fire has finally gone out. "Is that all!? Aren't you going to HIT me!? It's at that point that Mimiru grabs him around the waist. ".. the hell?" Somehow, a little girl lifts him off the ground. He brings his entire body around with the throw, and he braces himself to absorb impact. As soon as his feet hit the ground, he's charging, unusually fast for a man of his size and build. "I told you to wait your goddamn turn, girly!" The rapid click-click-click of his shoeheels echoes through the opera house as he.. charges right by Mimiru. Except his right hand is trailing behind him, and his fingers are aiming to wrap themselves right around her throat.

And he feels something in his grip. His fingers tighten, and he's got throat. The muscles in his right arm tense, and he drags Mimiru forward, grunting with the effort of having to haul the youth all the way back from behind him, and into the air. Because it's into the air he goes, and his arm extends while he brings the younger Kasagi airborne. He goes airborne, as well, leaping upwards in mid-charge and keeping her upheld until the apex of the leap. It's at that point that he throws all his weight straight down on his right side, and his right hand goes straight down, guiding Mimiru down and to the ground and slamming the back of her head into the floor with a high-speed chokeslam. It's not there that he stops, though. He's still putting pressure down on his victim's throat, and he starts to push off his heels again, charging forward and dragging her by the throat across the floor for a good six or so feet. Finally, he stops, releases, and straightens up. "See what happens when you don't listen, little girl!? SEE WHAT HAPPENS!?" That grating laughter starts up again, and Yamazaki leans down to laugh right in Mimiru's face, complete with tongue-waggling taunting before he brings his right foot up and kicks her, hard, right in the rib cage.

Everything happens way too fast for Mimiru to actually react. Even though she's known for her good reflexes, the current situation didn't help her, even though she wanted to stay on the defensive. Generally, such choke-holds are things Mimiru could escape rather easily, she's spent a good part of her life studying the art of self-defense and that's one of the pretty basic things they teach you. Alas, Yamazaki's just a little too fast for her, and his grip's just too tight for her to manage to pull off her technics.
At least, Mimiru remains calm. That's the number one thing to do, even though he brings her airborne. It only gets worse when she's slammed down and grinded up against the opera's floor a couple of feet, with that grip tightening and only making it harder for her to breath. Mimiru winces and she groans, narrowing her eyes a little. It's getting hard to breath but at least, he lets go of her before he actually really chokes her. The girl coughs and chokes, about to get back on all four, but before that's possible, he hits her hard in her rib cage, litterally forcing her up on all four.
While she's in pain, she doesn't really have the time to actually try to recover. If she does, she'll just end up being too vulnerable, and despite the pain, she forces herself to her feet to retaliate. She lunges him and tries to get a hold of him, if she suceeds, she'll try to use her advantage at being smaller and take a step to his right, moving her right leg straight behind his legs so she can twist her body around and make him turn about and throw him off to the ground.

The cackling subsides, toning itself down to a low chuckle in his throat as he watches Mimiru forcing herself back up to her feet again. His head tilts sharply off to one side, causing his neck to pop before both his hands slip down into their pockets again. He can't help but laugh; one sibling crumpled on the floor with a face covered in blood, and the other one having to force herself just to get back to her feet. He doesn't even bother to remove his hands from their pockets as she lunges forward. Aww, how cute. She's trying to fight back. "What're you going to do, plead for me to stop?" He looks down to watch what it is that she's doing, and when he watches the leg going back, he shifts his body a bit to adjust to where he knows he's going. He's thrown down, indeed, and he hits the ground hard, but he's rolling with it. A quick tumble gets him into a position that he can get back to his feet, and he stays facing away from Mimiru as he gets up to his feet. He pivots off his left foot, and his left shoulder drops down just a little while he spins. His left arm comes up and over his head, and as it starts to come down, that limb snaps out, blurring in movement again as he stretches that limb to cover the distance between himself and Mimiru while leather-clad knuckles aim to strike right upside her face.

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

The trick in jujitsu actually lies in the fact that you don't get hit. Failing to do so actually ends up in a rather quick end. Looks like this is definately what's just happening here. Even though Mimiru's on her feet this time when Yamazaki rises, she probably wasn't expecting his attack. Even though she was already on the defensive and weary, it didn't allow her to defend herself against his knuckles that smacks her right upside the face.
Mimiru staggers a little -- she managed to shrug off a bit of that last attack to stay up and fight back, but after that, she just crumbles down. The distance between the two would prove to be too much of a hassle for Mimiru to cover to try and give it one last shot. Even if she did, that would enhance the risk of getting hurt further and that's the total opposite of jujitsu. Beaten, she just lies there.

COMBATSYS: Mimiru takes no action.

The moment that Mimiru ends up crumpling to the ground, there's already two people running onto the opera stage floor in Mimiru's direction, and another two, much larger men running in Yamazaki's direction. He was in the midst of already gearing up for another strike when they both interject themselves between the Yakuza berserker and the fallen Kasagis. Both of them say, at the same time, "You'll lose your winnings if you hit them again." The two people tending to Mimiru carry her off-stage for medical treatment, and the mention of losing that kind of money sobers up Yamazaki well enough to prevent him from stabbing anyone else tonight. A frown does crease his face, however, and he turns to walk off the stage. The speakers crackle to life, and the announcer calls over the PA system, "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Your winner... RYUJI YAMAZAKI!" Yamazaki, however, has no intention of celebrating his victory. He reaches a hand out as he hops off the stage, and someone drapes his white fur coat over his shoulders while passing him his cigarettes and sunglasses. The glasses are settled onto his nose, and the cigarettes pocketed. "Swear t'goddamn, Howard never lets me enjoy myself afterwards." Someone opens up the door outside, and Ryuji walks himself out of the Opera House.

COMBATSYS: Yamazaki has ended the fight here.
