Neo League 326 - #338: Yurika vs Kensou

Description: Yurika challenges Kensou to a league fight... For Akira's honor, what?! (Winner: Kensou)

This particular area of southtown, or rather, Chinatown, Southtown, seems to be gradually growing back to it's extra busy, extra bustling spirits as winter is drawing away and spring is helping to bring color back to the major area.
Yurika had always considered herself a cultured woman, but one can never really be -enough- familiar with cultures outside of her own.
But that was neither here or there, while it was a slightly chilly afternoon, Yurika Kirishima was a woman with a purpose and was actually suprised that she would find a use for the league personally. Quite handy! Punctual as always, the prim and proper student resides at the proposed field of battle, confident that Kensou would answer her challenge. To pass the time, she is playing what can only be recognized as a 'Death March' melody on her violin, somewhat alienating the onlookers whom most are here to see Kensou whup some ass.
It's actually very bland in terms of fighting areas, one has to forgive the girl she's a beginning when it comes to these sorts of thing. It's a station platform of a trolley stop, very well cleaned under her orders, with nothing really out of the ordinary about. Now then, meet your maker!

To tell you the truth, Kensou hasn't even the foggiest idea who this 'Yurika' person is, but if she was able to issue a challenge through the Neo League, she must be able to handle herself in a fight, right? She can't possibly just be another Mimiru. Or so the Psycho Soldier hopes, anyway. But no, the Chinese martial artist didn't turn down the challenge, so he's he--Wait a minute, he's not here yet.

Oh, /there/ he is; Kensou comes careening through the crowd, jostling people out of the way with hastily muttered apologies, and once he gets close enough to the platform he leaps up, sailing gracefully through the air towards it! ...Until he snags his foot on the metal railing around the platform, which trips him in /mid air/, causing him to tumble face-first onto the cement platform. Ow.

For a moment, Kensou just lays there, before suddenly hopping up to his feet. "W-whoa! Had you all goin' there, didn't I?!" he says, laughing, though of course... He really did trip. That HURT. "All right, so where's this Yurika or whatever I'm supposedta be fightin'? She better be good, the new issue of Awesome Man comes out today an' I hadta skip gettin' it to come out here..." Wait, there's a girl with a violin on the platform. What? "Are you... Who I'm fightin'?" he wonders, dubiously. "I guess we should get started..."

COMBATSYS: Kensou has started a fight here.

Kensou           0/-------/-------|

Yes that did look exceptionally painful, the flying chinese acrobat causes Yurika to stop her playing for a moment, her eyes slightly wide as she could have sworn, for a split second, that she saw a hero.
However as time goes on, as it always does, the prissy girl is left with what she percieves as a zero, her arms drop, and one could swear her hair got displaced in some areas. Clearly she wasn't fooled, "... This 'Awesome Man' sounds like a comic book, I understand most men have guilty pleasures, but your admittance for a childish hobby is hardly charming.."
And the moment those words pass her lips, there are 'boo's thrown her way, confusing the student for a moment. Her violin is raised to her shoulder, shaking it off and points her fine-wood bow at her opponent, "This is no mere match, this is a duel!" she makes clear, "You are guilty of attempting to sully Akira's purity, and for that, I will punish you as I see fit. ENGARDE'!" and she charges forward, her weapon raises like a sword which she attempts to smash into the side of Kensous neck with suprising force!

COMBATSYS: Yurika has joined the fight here.

Did she just... Diss comic books? Kensou frowns thoughtfully at that, as he tries to figure out /exactly what she said/, when... Yurika keeps talking, and /attacks him with a violin bow of all things/. "Akira...? What th' hell are you talkin' about?" the Psycho Soldier wonders, slipping out of the way of Yurika's attack smoothly, the bow blurring past the front of his throat. That... Probably would've hurt if it'd hit. "I don't even know anybody named Akira!" Or... He thinks he doesn't.

Of course, Kensou doesn't just spend his time talking, and intead he lunges forward - hopefully while Yurika is still recovering from her hefty swing, thrusting the heel of his right palm outwards in a quick strike, hoping to knock Yurika back and away. "If y' don't stop talkin' crazy, I ain't gonna fight you!"

COMBATSYS: Kensou successfully hits Yurika with Jab Punch.
- Power hit! -

Yurika           0/-------/-----==|-------\-------\0           Kensou

Yurika clearly did put too much oomph in her swing, letting her emotions get the better of her it'd seem. She staggers slightly when Kensou slips out of the way, and she turns around just in time to get whalloped by his palm, knocking some air from her as she stumbles back into a newspaper binny. Ouch!
"H- Ha! Do you take me for a fool?" Yurika replies, straightening herself, and brushes off her stomach, "Or do you suffer memory loss on occassion? You and Shingo Yabuki had a match just a week or so ago against her!" And.. Someone else but she can't remember their name. She again closes in on Shingo, twisting around on one foot and attempts to slam the flat of her pink mary-janes into Kensou's stomach, "Surely you remember *now*, don't you!"

COMBATSYS: Yurika successfully hits Kensou with Light Kick.

Does he...? Well yes, actually, he's starting to take her for kind of a fool! Kensou frowns again as Yurika tries to explain herself. "Oh!" he says, tapping his fist into his open palm in realisation. "Uh, I remember that fight, but what're you talkin' about?" No, he still doesn't get it. He is a bit delayed because of this realisation, when it comes to intercepting that foot; his arms come up, but too slowly, and instead he gets kicked in the gut. "Hoof!!" he says, as the air rushes out of his lungs.

Of course, he's just getting started, so he rushes right up in Yurika's proverbial grill, lashing out with kicks of his own; as he gets in close, he aims his knee at her midsection, and if he manages to catch the crazy violin girl with that, then he whirls on his heel and throws his leg out for a back-kick. "Yaa--!!"

COMBATSYS: Yurika blocks Kensou's Medium Kick.

"..... You don't even know me and you're already getting on my nerves," Yurika mutters, stomping firmly on the ground after landing her kick, and seems prepared for the chinese fighters next attack, again using her bow for assistance. The weapon is swept downward, blocking the knee but still serving as a lift for him to completel his attack, which she at the last moment manages to lessen the damage by blocking with the backhand of her violin holding hand.
She didn't know she had it in her, actually! "Nngh! It's clear it's a waste of time, speaking to you in this state. Just know that I am here to extract justice! And would it *kill* you to speak in proper words? You sound like an undereducated louse!" As she's berrating the young fighter, the girl attempts to push Kensou back and throw him a little off balance. In which then she sweeps low and up, not only attempting to catch him under the chin with teh wood of her weapon, but use the momentum to toss her over her shoulder, "Hyah!"

COMBATSYS: Kensou interrupts Quick Throw from Yurika with Sunda.

Yurika           0/-------/=======|===----\-------\0           Kensou

"Extract justice for /what/?" Kensou wonders, clearly bewildered by the strange girl and her general strangeness. But then, here comes Yurika again, pushing him back off-balance. Rather than, say, try to avoid it, he just rolls with it, getting tossed up and over, but he doesn't go as far as the schoolgirl probably hoped... In fact, he's within arm's reach behind her, because his hand taps against her back and then there's a flash of blue-tinged white Psycho Power from that hand. "HA-!!" he shouts, blasting Yurika /away/, and himself in the opposite direction, though he lands on his feet, mitigating most of the potential harm from that throw. "Whew, dangerous, dangerous," he mutters to himself.

Ouch! Kensou is probably used to hearing the cries of suprise after being blasted by that rather powerful energy, and there goes the student tumbling back and rolling onto her side. A slightly frustrated huff passes her lips, and her eyes narrow. Not in anger, but in concentration. Store away her feelings of vengeance for now and think back to her training with Kurow, ".. I've underestimated your skill.. I suppose I should spend less time flapping my mouth and show you just how skilled *I* am.." Quiet! I'm trying to concentrate!

COMBATSYS: Yurika focuses on her next action.

Yurika           0/-------/=======|===----\-------\0           Kensou

So... Kensou's never actually going to find out what this is about, is he? Heaving a sigh, he shakes his head and shrugs in a 'what can you do?' kind of gesture, before dropping back into his wide-legged fighting stance, leading with his left hand, facing off with Yurika. "Yeah, yeah," he says, and turns his own focus inward... Drawing on his untapped stores of psychic energy, drawing that power out. Motes of blue light whirl around him like a storm of fireflies, the 'wind' they move on stirring his clothes and hair as they move faster and faster around him. "Haaaaaaaaaaaa...!"

COMBATSYS: Kensou gathers his will.

Yurika           0/-------/=======|=======\-------\0           Kensou

Yurika huffs, "... What.. You rude little troll!" she cries in exasperation, as Kensou doesn't respond to her the way she had expected at all. Rude rude rude! "Growing up poor is no excuse for improper manners or ettiquette! Disgraceful!"
And well, Yurika rushes in at that point, seeming to ignore the building of that energy for the time being.
Yurika encounters Kensou with a rather graceful stance, her bow raising to her violin as she gets close, close enough in which when she comes to a halt, she spins on one foot while playing a serene melody from her instrument, the music taking solid form and spirals like a ribbon about her, bars, notes and all. But should those notes break his guard, he'd find himself caught in the whirlwhind and launched upward as his body is assaulted by the force!

COMBATSYS: Kensou blocks Yurika's Tragic Lullaby.

[             \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  ///////////////////////       ]
Yurika           1/-------/=======|=======\=------\1           Kensou

The hell did she just call him? "Hey, what's your problem?!" Kensou demands to know, when suddenly he's being attacked... With MUSIC? However, the notes actually don't break through his guard, arms and Psycho Power fighting them off, his forearms taking the brunt of the damage. This is pretty new and unusual by him, you know? But... He's going to have to do SOMETHING.

Suddenly, the Psycho Soldier lunges forward from his position, wisps of Yurika's attack still clinging to him as he goes right for the violinist. Once he gets close enough, Kensou throws himself into a horizontal leap right at her, leading with his left elbow and knee. "Yo-!!" If that hits, then he twists at the wast, smashing his right knee into her. "Ya-!!" And if /that/ hits, he continues to twist, extending his left leg in a wide, arcing kick at the side of Yurika's torso. "Hyaa-!!"

COMBATSYS: Yurika dodges Kensou's Ryuu Renga.

[             \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\  < >  //////////////////////        ]
Yurika           1/-------/=======|=======\=------\1           Kensou

Yurika has had enough getting beaten up for the time being, it would seem. Yurika, violin still confidently held, leans to the side, one foot behind the other, to evade the first part of his assault, which seems to deter him from completing his combination.. In fact, he goes right by her as she twirls in a circle and stands her ground, bow held to her instrument, "It's not that you don't get it," Yurika manages to say patiently,
"It's just you refuse to understand the words coming from my mouth, which is what we call ignorance. It's very annoying, actually." It's almost like a soap opera, her words clear as she continues to play her music that's taken a more dramatic tone. Standing on one foot she leans forward, but doesn't fall over. In fact she is sailing forward gracefully, twirling around at a critical moment in which she'd try to smack Kensou in teh face with her bow as she passes.
It's worth noting at this point she had been trailing a much larger and longer string of music behind her, and again each note whips forward to catch-up with the musician, smashing through Kensou if need be before dissipating, "This is my tragic song for you!"

COMBATSYS: Yurika successfully hits Kensou with Fatal Nocturne.

Yurika           0/-------/-----==|=======\=====--\1           Kensou

Whoa crapola! Kensou gets caught by Yurika's strike and attack, though he does try to get out of the way; he isn't fast enough to avoid the attack, instead getting caught up by and smashed with that musical energy, which hurts pretty bad! He's blasted, knocked back, end ends up in a heap, laying there again for a long moment. Owww. "Heh," laughs Kensou, as he pushes himself up to his feet. "That was pretty good!"

Dusting himself off, the Psycho Soldier then turns to point, rather dramatically, at Yurika. "But unless you stop being a crazy person an' tell me /what the hell you're goin' on about/, I'm gonna havta kick your ass so bad you end up wearin' it for a hat!" That's right, he IS completely uncouth. He reaches behind himself suddenly, a sly smile on his face. "But first I'll show you my MOST POWERFUL TECHNIQUE!! ....BEHOLD!!" Kensou declares, and pulling his hand from behind himself, he somehow has a piping hot meatbun in hand, held out dramatically.

...And then he eats it.

Yurika straightens up, a satisfied nod given as her playing comes to a stop. However her confident posture faulters in response to Kensous laughter. What she didn't expect were the string of obscenities to follow, Yurika's dark eyes widening and her jaw falling slack as she presses a hand to her chest, "Oh!!" she gasps. Kick her ass?? W- Wear it for a hat?? "OH!! Well I *NEVER* in my life!!" she cries, face red as a beet in shock and embarassment, which in turn seems to cause the spectators to get a good laugh at the reaction. She's not worried about the meat bun, she's too busy being flabbergasted, "That is no way,"
Forgoing her normal grace for the moment, Yurika darts up to Kensou makes a tightly closed fist and attempts to uppercut him right under the chin, "To speak to a lady!!!"

Ahhh, delicious! Kensou's stance visibly eases after he finishes eating, though there's the added problem of... A fist coming his way, as Yurika aims to uppercut the crap out of him?! Luckily, he's finished eating. Unluckily, there might not be time to avoid the hit... So he takes it right on the chin, his head rocking back from the force of the blow. "Ghhkk..."

But that's not all he's got, not by a long shot, as Kensou quickly recovers from the force of the blow and twists, ducking down into a low crouch. "EAT THIS!!" he shouts, pushing off the cement underfoot with both hands, sending himself up, and whirling around with both legs extended in a rising kick, aiming to catch Yurika and pull her up into the air with him, battering her with repeated foots to the head. "Yaaa--!!"

COMBATSYS: Kensou successfully hits Yurika with Ryuu Gakusai.
Glancing Blow

Yurika           0/-------/---====|=======\-------\1           Kensou

Yurika holds her fist upward after contact, and seems to be pretty satisfied with the result there, hand lowering then to brush out her wild hairdo, and a couple of strands of hair from her face with a, "Hmph!"
Oh yes, he was eating wasn't he. She hopes he chokes and dies! Which he doesn't, showing he has more spunk than ever before. Kensou comes in and he lands a good hit right into Yurika's head, but regains enough wits to crouch almost cat-like, and save herself the pain of the rest of his techniqe to circle behind the boy. But she isn't going to press her attack, backing off a bit to raise her bow to her violin once more, and play a more soothing piece, though her stance is a little slouched, "I think I'm getting a headache.."

COMBATSYS: Yurika gains composure.

Yurika           0/-------/----===|=======\-------\1           Kensou

Hmm, that could've gone better! Kensou tucks his legs in at the height of his jump, twisting so that he lands on his feet. But... What on earth is Yurika doing now? "C'mon, this ain't time t' go play music!" he chides, even though he was the one who just ate mid-fight not moments ago... Plus the music seems to be pretty much what the girl has for a style. But, whatever, if she's not going to attack, then he'll just have to!

Kensou rushes forward at Yurika again, taking the fight to her while she's busy playing her instrument, and he ducks low as he gets in close... Before springing out of that crouch with a HUGE uppercut that might just completely knock the girl's block off if it hits. "HYAAA-!!"

COMBATSYS: Kensou successfully hits Yurika with Fierce Punch.

Yurika           0/-------/-======|=======\=------\1           Kensou

".. Oh well this is just great, I'm getting lectured by *you*? Is there no justice?" Apparently so? Just not for her? Kensou *does* knock her block off, the moment the uppercut lands and Yurika doesn't quite move fast enough, the girl is launched straight upward in a man- Wait a minute, didn't the opposite situation happen just moments ago??
Either way, she's knocked for quite a loop, but knees tucking in and dress seeming to somehow keep from peeking eyes to meet their mark, Yurika flips in the air with her bow settled in ready. She lands in a crouch, and then leaps backward as she plays a much shorter piece.. A ring of notes shoots from her instruments. Should it hit, Kensou will find unlike her last attacks, this wave of sound is threatening to cut him, "Take this!!"

COMBATSYS: Kensou interrupts Tragic Serenade from Yurika with Senki Hakkei.

Yurika           1/--=====/=======|==-----\-------\0           Kensou

As if Kensou would peep! He's not some crazy pervo, though there might be some in the audience. The Psycho Soldier's eyes widen at the sudden return of music, the very sound trying to cut into his skin, and he... Does the first thing that comes to mind, and runs INTO it. No, it's not as crazy as it should be, because he throws his right hand forward, bracing that arm with his left at the shoulder, and channels forth an enormous explosion of Psycho Power, tearing through the dangerous notes - though some do get past, and hurt him - before striking Yurika herself with the immense blue-tinged white sphere of destructive energy. "HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-!!!"

The blast, finally, breaks down, the remaining force sending Kensou skidding back, gasping for breath...

The only appropriate word here, is ouch on the Nth degree. Yurika was about to pull into a defensive game, but the chinese fighter nips that right in the bud with the flashy, powerful blast of psychic energy. Yurika can keep a straight head most of the time, but after that attack and nearly getting DESTROY!'d, the student flops backward and collapses onto her back. She had actually thought she could handle energy pretty well, so it's puzzling why she was in so much pain. But her pride won't allow her to go down quietly, she pushing herself to one arm with a cringe, "It's not the end.. Just yet.. There's still my grande finale'," she huffs loud enough for her to hear at least. She doesn't need to stand to perform her last attack.
Yurika manages to play another melody, suprisingly pleasent to the ear, and this time is carried upward as if she were suddenly jumping diagonally. She attempts once more to slam her bow under Kensous chin again, the enlonged bar of notes following her and threatening to once again juggle the boy upward into the air with it's musical assaulty goodness. At the apex of the attack, she flips in the air and lands on her feet, though her knees give out under her, forcing her to fall to the floor once again in defeat.

COMBATSYS: Yurika can no longer fight.

Grand fi/what/? Kensou frowns as Yurika keeps on playing, and then she's suddenly lifted into the air, which is generally a hallmark of not good things to come; he tries to dodge out of the way of that last, desperate sweep of the violin bow, but instead he's caught by it and the attacking notes, battered quite thoroughly by them before he too crashes to the cement below, but... He pushes himself back up. Kensou's wobbly, and looking rather the worse for wear, but he gets back up. "Heheheh," he chuckles, rubbing his nose with the back of one gloved hand. "That all y' got? You need t' train harder!" the Psycho Soldier chides his fallen opponent without a hint of irony. At least, not any he's aware of.

The crowd, of course, goes wild; it's their hometown boy who won, after all!

COMBATSYS: Kensou has ended the fight here.
