Neo League 501 - #520: Jiro vs Birdie

Description: Birdie fights Jiro in the Neo League! It's a quick, decisive battle between two fighters on a bridge. (Winner: Jiro)

Ah, it's another day in Metro City. The fall's atmosphere makes the wind a bit cooler and the presence of peace is long since disturbed. With the atmosphere giving off the setting, roadblocks have been made along with the detour signs and an object marker to have individuals go the left lane at all times, as the right is closed off.
The bridge is rather spacious as everyone practically surrounds the whole area. The crowd cheers over the fact that a long time fighter finally returns to the circuit. Broadcasted through the Neo League's international television system, all of the cameras point out towards the ring.
The fighter returning is Jiro, who is marked off in his new clothing. A simple blue vest with a black t-shirt underneath, as well as a pair of white pants and tennis shoes. He tightens his gloves, stretching his arms up.
Not long after, a hawk descends down towards the back of his palm for perching. He blinks once, then he faces the hawk, "Hey, Hamon, you came in at a bad time, you know." He frowns.

Now, Birdie didn't have any birds with him. Instead, Birdie just had himself. Hearing of a Neo League fight and applying for anyone he could get his hands on, Birdie's not coming to a battle ground in Metro City. The Metro City bridge, to be more exact. A long stretch between one side to the next, but just enough for both fighters to use it to their advantage.

From the opposite side of the bridge, Birdie arrives with a grin on his face, slowly walking towards his spot under the camera and lights. He's hunched over, yet still gigantic. He's definitely not one to screw around with. You see those pointed shoes and handlebar mustache? You don't mess with guys with that.

Birdie stops at his spot and looks towards Jiro. He grunts, "Hah. What a dumb little bird. You need to get some real friends, bloke." Birdie states, getting ready himself, a blue vest and blue jeans all this man is wearing. Oh. And bling. Gotta do that.

Drifting his gaze towards the massive punk, Jiro quirks an eyebrow at the ridiculousnes of the individual. His lips curl to a snarl and he looks at the hawk, flicking his arm out to dismiss it. As the creature flies off, Jiro turns to face the Englishman with a cold stare, then he extends his middle finger out.
"Going to talk or fight?"
With that, Jiro steps into his fighting stance; his rhythm is caught on as he presses himself back and forward, tightened fists raise up in a guarding position.
The announcer holds the mic, "Ladies and gentlemen! We have both Jiro Kasagi and Birdie in this match up! Ready! Fight!"

Birdie looks towards Jiro as he unravels the chain around his hand, grasping it with his right hand. Looking up towards Jiro, he grins. Already he's got the man's attention. This was good. Birdie loved to grab attention.

"Alright bloke, I guess you're right. But after I win I could go for some roast hawk." Birdie chuckles, leaning in closer towards the chain as he holds it taught, the end hanging from his hand. Licking it up and down, he keeps his eyes on the man there. And that's when he makes his move.

Stepping inwards, Birdie seems to be charging, but half way there, Birdie just lets the chain fly, skipping across the ground as it attempts to strike Jiro's legs and wrap around them, heavy links squeezing in.

If this is successful, Birdie's going to be hurling Jiro by the feet back and forth against the concrete. Imagine a concrete drum played only with JIRO. Yeah, that's about it.

COMBATSYS: Jiro dodges Birdie's Bandit Chain.

How annoying.
The officer regards Birdie's comments with a deadpan look on his face, before he considers the weapon that he has. The sight of the weapon actually draws a smirk towards the young man, then he positions himself for the next move.
It is that when Birdie charges at his way, Jiro is ready for him to come forth with his own strike, but Jiro easily detects the chain, so he zips towards the side at a right angle to give him a way to go into Birdie's territory, then he angles back into position over the chain with his foot against it.
Stepping into melee field, Jiro steps forward right a right hook across Birdie's gut with a twist. The first strike is merely an attempt to hunch him over for Jiro's next move; a left-armed uppercut across the face to bring the seven footer down.

COMBATSYS: Birdie endures Jiro's Medium Punch.

Birdie gets toasted. The chain slides against the ground and quickly makes it's way around ... nothing. Jiro's already gone. Instead, Birdie's going to have to get a grasp of where the man's going. As Jiro comes closer, Birdie's not going to make his life easy. So as he tries an uppercut towards the giant...

Birdie steps in, the uppercut slamming against the bottom of his chin as he grins. "Heh. Heh. Heh." Of course there's a red welt there, and his head popped up like a doll, but he's grasping for Jiro's outstretched arm anyways.

"Not bad!" Birdie exclaims as he tries to take hold, and if holding on enough, literally launch the man into the air and towards the cement in a brutal throw. He's not quick at all, but imagine if he were to get a hold.

COMBATSYS: Jiro blocks Birdie's Medium Throw.

The uppercut makes its mark, which is a good thing for Jiro. However, the fact that he is grabbed by the arm puts him in a very bad position. He snarls angrily, then he is launched off towards the air by the powerful toss.
He sails across the air, but he manages to cushion the blow by extending his hands in front of him. Although he takes a brunt of damage by the impact, he does save himself from a more painful fate. He pushes himself back on his feet. "Tsch." Winding his right hand back, the young man immediately twists his arm up to launch out an uppercut at a distance.
His chi manifests with crimson flames, then the flames drive forward like a slicing beam. An arm's length cutter launches towards Birdie's direction.

COMBATSYS: Jiro successfully hits Birdie with Balefire.

Birdie's... finding out that it's hurting a bit right now! It's a little hot! And with such, bamf, Birdie finds that the uppercut sent for him is literally aflame! The chi that Birdie finds himself on the receiving end up burns him up! It's getting a little warmer in here, and thus, Birdie's going to have to do something.

The beam cuts into him and sends him back, even as he moves to rise his arms, he's impacted before he could slow it. It just runs into him, and he's not too happy. Being driven back into the ground is not on his things to do list today.

"Hah. Is that all?" Birdie calls, spitting blood towards the strike, welts all over his figure. "That's pathetic." Birdie snorts. He just keeps his eyes on Jiro.

COMBATSYS: Birdie focuses on his next action.

"There's more, but I'm not wasting it on your ass." comments Jiro, who presses on with the strike after he manages to send Birdie back with the projectile cutter. Now, once he gets the chance to dart in after Birdie to press on the aggression.
Not the one to really care for the insults, Jiro just wants to fight, not chat. He's simple that way. Considering the massive size of the man, Jiro merely launches himself forward, aiming to use one of his legs to press against Birdie's chest for momentum and leverage.
Should he be successful with the leverage, he'll spin his body around and launch his left leg out against the black punk's face with a spinning kick.

COMBATSYS: Jiro successfully hits Birdie with Light Kick.

Jiro             0/-------/----===|=======\-------\0           Birdie

Birdie's getting slammed. But he's still enjoying it. You can't make a brute any less of a brute by kicking the bajeesus out of him, and this is how it's like with Birdie. "Hahah!" He calls as he pushes himself into the line of the kick, only to get shot backwards, his overly muscular tone being sent back without a moment to spare.

Gritting his teeth, he keeps his eye on the man. Alright. So he wants to play it like that? Sure.

Like a bull, Birdie charges. And he's not damn stopping either. Head poised down, he seems plenty happy to run into Jiro and just send him to hell and back. It's like the running of the bulls, but damn better.

And his hair? It's like a horn. In fact, at the speed he's going for such a big man, just don't get in the way.

Jiro             0/-------/---====|=======\=------\1           Birdie

After landing on his feet, Jiro takes a few steps away from the massive hulk of a man, sneering with distate at the punk. "I dislike punks like you." He grits his teeth, "Give me a real damn fight!"
Then, when Birdie charges at him like a bull, Jiro watches his movement, waiting for the opportunity. He blinks a few moments as the hair-like a horn.
There is the funny thing about Jiro.
Even though he doesn't look like it?
He's pretty damn strong.
As the bulky man charges into the frey of the Kasagi, the young man immediately launches himself forward and down to tuck underneath the charge. Then like a serpent, both hands launch off to snap at the large man's throat, swinging hm off course and then he whips him across to apply pressure to the chokehold. His hands writhe in crimson flames to engulf the man.
Then, Jiro launches the man up to have his legs around the shoulders.
Jesus, this guy is heavy.
Nevertheless, Jiro keeps him held up enough to heft him up, and then powerbomb him straight into the ground. But the impact to the concrete is not alone, as the chi bursts from behind him in an explosion of crimson flames.

Birdie's getting beat pretty badly. But something about Birdie's? You never count a Birdie out.

So as Jiro takes advantage of the large man by grabbing him and putting him into a choke hold, only to apply pressure before engulfing his hands on fire, well, Birdie's getting beat in that aspect. He's by not easy to take advantage of. Just like a tank.

But as Jiro gets up and launches him into the ground with a powerbomb, it looks like Birdie's dang beat. Flopping against the ground as fires flies up, Birdie just looks at Jiro and chuckles.

"Bloke, why you so sure of yourself?" He manages to make out as he shifts weight.

Coming up from the ground like a bad habit, Birdie aims to connect with Jiro and literally, head first, ram him into a cable of the bridge before letting loose with a flurry of punches. Birdie's fists seem like beastly instruments of destruction.

And Jiro's their target! "Eyaaaaaaaah!"

COMBATSYS: Birdie successfully hits Jiro with The Birdie MAX.

Jiro             1/------=/=======|===----\-------\0           Birdie

After the slam, Jiro looks at the large man, especially after he comes forth to charge at him. Like an idiot? Jiro -steps- into the charge, attempting to utilize the position to drive the fist forward. However, he was not prepared as he thought. Birdie's strength was very overcoming and it sent Jiro sprawling back from the impact, coughing as he meets with the cable of the bridge.
The several punches strike and beat against Jiro, grunting in pain and gritting his teeth to take the beating. But eventually, Jiro kneels down in position close by.
"..Good. That's better." His eyes narrow, giving a glint of a twinkle. Next, the Metro City officer launches himself forward, extending his right hand upward in an uppercut. The crimson flames spiral into existance as Jiro launches forth the uppercut, then he steps forward with the other arm winded in preparation.
Then, Jiro launches forward with the telegraphed, strong punch. Should that punch connect, it will result within a huge explosion of crimson flames bursting, powerful enough to send the man flying far.

COMBATSYS: Birdie endures Jiro's Scarlet Slaughter.

Jiro             0/-------/-------|=======\==-----\1           Birdie

Birdie. Well Birdie is made to knock around like a ragged step child. Blows to the left, right, up and down. Blow after blow after blow. It was quite amazing!

But Jiro just does it all all in an uppercut, which Birdie faces discreetly, running himself right into it. But unlike the last uppercut, this was followed. He had no idea it was coming. With a powerful blow, Birdie faced now a second. The strong punch explodes against the large man's chest. Birdie fights it, but even then he's sent a distance, debris and a cloud forming from where he now stood.

"Peekaboo." Birdie manages to get out with a labored breath before running up against the man, aiming to grab him. If that happens, Birdie begins to fire multiple headbutts towards him only before finally bringing it down, and across the man's chest. If he catches him at all? He'll act like a rhino, bucking up to try to flip Jiro up and over his head and onto the cement below.

Either way, Birdie falls to his knees with a grin, before slamming the concrete with his puckered lips. He's out!

COMBATSYS: Birdie can no longer fight.

It is quite a feat that Jiro managed to do. The young man folds his arms together, staring into the smoke created by the explosive punch. Through the cheers of his friends and teammates around the arena, Jiro shakes his head with disappointment.
And the moment that the punk reaches out to grab him? Jiro immediately evades the attempt to take hold of him by swaying to the side, while shifting his body. Along the way, Jiro swings his arm out to give the hulking man a gentle pat on the back to press him forward and out of his path so that he can fall on the ground.
"...Strong, I'll give you that." The young man smiles and he extends his right hand out into the air. Off comes forth the hawk, who descends on the arm. Nuzzling his nose against the creature affectionately, Jiro grins, "Okay, -now- is a good time to discuss things."
The announcer shouts, "And the winner! ... Jiro Kasagi!"
"...Feels good to be back in the fighting circuit," comments the youth.
