Strolheim Exhibition Round 1 - Robert vs Igniz - Strolheim's tournament is underway, and Igniz loses no time in the process, looking for said Robert Garcia. And he's washing his car as well!

Cast: Zach and Vince. Strolheim Exhibition Round 1 - Kentou vs Tyler - Its student verses student as the Strolheim Tournament gets underway! The two beginners square off and set the bar high for tension. This is a close one folks, down to the line and maybe a little over as Kentou begs the question, What does it take to bring Tyler down?! (Winner: Tyler) - created on 20:51:41 09/26/2008 by Kentou and last modified on 02:12:57 09/28/2008. Cast: Tyler and Kentou. Strolheim Exhibition Round 1 - Aranha vs Naerose - Naerose and Aranha are to meet and do battle, but hearts arn't always in it.

Perhaps the mix of what is and what will be has caused this to occur, but don't adjust your television sets! It seems Setsuka learns today of what might be her greatest challenge yet .. MAGICAL GIRLS. A coming of age test, if you will, which prepares them for later! - created on 13:22:25 09/27/2008 by Mignon and last modified on 13:00:11 09/28/2008. Cast: Mignon and Setsuka. Strolheim Exhibition Round 1 - Leona vs Isamu - The Hibiki Dojo hosts a preliminary round match for Strolheim that pits the Ikari Warrior Leona Heidern against the relatively unknown Isamu.

Strolheim Exhibition Round 1 - Ichiro vs Frei - In the auditorium at Justice High, two fights who call Southtown home -- lacrosse captain Ichiro Oe and local chi-throwing lout Frei -- duel for the glory of Strolheim! One of them throws all he has into his attack and the other has a more roundabout approach, making for an epic clash not only of fists, but of philosophies.

Strolheim Exhibition Round 1 - Hotaru vs Choi - Facing off in a gorgeous national park in Germany, Hotaru Futaba is put up against the typically creepy Choi Bounge. Only, Choi isn't so creepy this time, but rather introspective. And he has a story to tell. Too bad Hotaru decides to punch the messenger!

Strolheim Exhibition Round 1 - Alma vs Benimaru - On the beaches of Waikiki, a historic moment. Two men, one destiny: to be crowned 'Sexiest Man Alive'. Er, wait a second-- but that's what this becomes, as Benimaru Nikaido and Alma Towazu, models with a notorious rivalry, face off once more in a Strolheim Preliminary amidst the cheering and swooning throngs. But Alma has changed, and gotten stronger in more ways than one; and Benimaru, for all his extravagance, is more than just a pretty face. This fight will leave the viewer on the edge of their seat, but the lasting image -- and doubtless the cover of the DVD -- will not be any of the thrilling twists or fearsome strikes. It will be Alma and Benimaru together, standing tall... and shaking hands. (Winner: Alma) - created on 01:04:12 09/29/2008 by Alma and last modified on 11:38:07 09/30/2008. Cast: Alma and Benimaru.

Strolheim Exhibition Round 1 - Yamazaki vs Acacia - Ryuji Yamazaki versus Acacia Gillespie. Or at least...that was the scheduled match, arranged by the tournament organisers. But there's one small problem, one tiny little detail. The man named Yamazaki is dead. Or at least, that's what the rumors say. Hard to hold a fight with a dead man. Very hard indeed. Of course, when that man's Yamazaki, even that's not certain... (DKO) - created on 17:49:36 10/04/2008 by Acacia and last modified on 13:54:42 10/05/2008. Cast: Acacia and Yamazaki.

Strolheim Exhibition Round 2 - Aranha vs Alexis - Round two... fight! This second round of the Strolheim exhibition matches pits the rhythmatic capoeirista Aranha against the agile gymnast known as 'Angel Papillion'. The upside is that it's a fast paced match, where if you blink you'll miss some of the action! The downside is that it seems someone else knows her secret. Now Alexis is left with the decision on whether to actually be herself in the tournament, or continue on as the masked fighter. (Winner: Aranha) - created on 10:27:20 10/06/2008 by Alexis and last modified on 14:31:10 10/06/2008. Cast: Aranha and Alexis. Strolheim Exhibition Round 2 - Ryu vs Chizuru - Strolhelm.

Strolheim Exhibition Round 2 - Benimaru vs Acacia - In the freezing chill of the Alps, two fighters face off in the depths of a natural ice cavern. It's almost as cool as Benimaru.

Naerose gives an explanation but it's lame at best and Dr.Tran really just wants to get this over with. Well they both sort of get their wish. (Winner:Naerose) Also Naerose Fails. - created on 19:18:30 10/08/2008 by Naerose and last modified on 14:08:47 10/09/2008. Cast: Tran and Naerose.

Strolheim Exhibition Round 2 - Hotaru vs Todoh - Another chapter in the endless fued between Todoh and anyone that has been drawn into Kyokugen circle. This time he's prepared.

Cast: Hotaru and Todoh. Strolheim Exhibition Round 2 - Hayato vs Raizo - Two teachers from Southtown fight it out on a back street in London as Hayato and Raizo show off for Strolheim. At first it seems that Raizo is getting a bit rusty, but he quickly gets back into the swing of things. And introduces Hayato to the difficulties involved in leaping right toward someone with very sharp claws.

Strolheim Exhibition Round 2 - Kentou vs Vince - Feeling a need to restore the grand reputation of LaRose, Vince walks into his next match with determination. His redemption will not come easily with Kentou as his next match up! Though, the young apprentice finds himself in an unfamiliar battleground he was not prepared to face... Theatre?!

Strolheim Exhibition Round 2 - Amy vs Ichiro - Warriors come in many forms. A modern-day Knight Templar and a Japanese lacrosse player clash at the Stuttgart Beer Festival, she fighting to prove herself to Strolheim, he to match the terms of his own high confidence. Their stylistic differences are obvious, their philosophical differences less so, but both give their all in a bout for the ages... set to a pounding techno soundtrack and the smell of stale booze. (Winner: Ichiro) - created on 00:18:24 10/13/2008 by Amy and last modified on 17:02:10 10/15/2008. Cast: Ichiro and Amy.

AUUUUUGH! - Those two words pretty much sum up the meeting between Alexis and Benimaru after she finds out just who her 'teacher' for this tournament is supposed to be. The question now is, will the gymnast stick with this 'challenge', or will she forfeit the tournament so that she can be the perfect fangirl? And just what /does/ Benimaru mean when he says he'll take care of it? - created on 19:04:18 10/29/2008 by Alexis and last modified on 20:31:08 11/02/2008. Cast: Benimaru and Alexis. Strolheim Interlude - Yin and Yang do Tea - Alma has politely asked Igniz for a cup of tea on the Strolheim castle balcony. Igniz responds by showing up when he is most likely too, sitting down with his student for a cup of tea. The cups are downed, and the fighters stand. Harsh words that bully one of Alma's freinds turns an already tense scene into one which sends Alma into a righteous fury. But as some things may go, righteousness does not always put one in a very fruitful position. - created on 21:54:34 10/30/2008 by Igniz and last modified on 18:31:26 11/08/2008. Cast: Alma and Igniz. Strolheim Interlude - Dr. Tran's Team Troubles - History repeats. It repeats in new, interesting ways, just to keep things fresh, but it the end it's all the same. This time around, at the second Strolheim Tournament, Dr. Tran is the teacher to Hotaru Futaba and Mignon Beart. He tries to be reasonable, but it doesn't do him any good. When the dust clears, he's down and out and nobody's really learned anything. Hooray! - created on 22:29:01 10/30/2008 by Tran and last modified on 12:12:29 11/05/2008.

Strolheim Interlude - Beni takes care of it(?) - A man of his word, (for the most part) Benimaru's forced to do some detective work and hunt down the man he believes to be the source of his team problem: Drake Vyril. He finds the younger model, and obviously the conversation isn't full of rainbows and sunshine, but results in his departing believing that Drake's '#1 Fangirl' will settle down. - created on 02:19:32 11/02/2008 by Benimaru and last modified on 14:17:31 11/11/2008. Cast: Benimaru and Drake. Strolheim - Round 1: Team O+ vs Team Bloodshed - The winding paths of the Strolheim Zen Garden are most definitely NOT a peaceful place any longer, for several reasons. The obvious is that there's a fight going on. Flowers are squished, trees are broken, and the poor sand mandala certainly doesn't survive once Choi the Magic Dragon is done with it. Fighters fall one by one... until someone remains victorious! The unobvious would be the seeming tension between teammates. Can Choi overcome being stuffed in a duffel bag by the volatile Yamazaki? Will Alexis actually show up to help her team? Did Naerose REALLY do that well? Find out all this and more! (Winners: Benimaru, Naerose and Alexis) - created on 18:40:02 11/16/2008 by Alexis and last modified on 13:45:27 11/20/2008. Cast: Choi, Naerose, Yamazaki, Benimaru, Spider, and Alexis. Strolheim - Round 1: Vengeance 2.0 vs Fatal Fury - Atop Strolheim's central tower, the Legendary Wolf Terry Bogard and his bouncy teammate Mai Shiranui face off against protege Rock Howard and the World's Strongest Woman, Chun-Li.

Strolheim - Round 1: Vehemence vs Armory - Team Vehemence and Team Armory face off against one another in the dark, dank dungeons beneath Castle Strolheim. With all the fighters starting at different spots, Hayato and Vega are the first to run into each other, while Ichiro and Roland find one another and then are quickly found by Vice. In both cases beatings commence, and then the victors go on the prowl for whoever else is still down in the dark... (Winners: Team Vehemence) - created on 20:14:24 11/16/2008 by Hayato and last modified on 13:31:01 11/23/2008. Cast: Vice, Vega, Ichiro, Hayato, and Roland. Strolheim - Round 1: Whimsicality vs Spiritualists - In the banquet hall of Strolheim, Teams Whimsicality and Spiritualists do battle. There is food. There is fight. There is food fight.

Strolheim - Bonus Match: Strolheim vs Yin and Yang - Krauser invites Igniz and Alma into his parlor for a little life lesson. Krauser's teaching style would probably get him into trouble in the public school system, and Laurence Blood is the worst hall monitor EVER.

Strolheim - Round 1: Gradschool vs Ethereal - Gradschool squares off against Ethereal in the first round of the Strolheim tournament. Isamu and Zach have an intense duel before battling each other to a draw and then Ryu steps up and quickly takes down Aranha before having a fierce and bloody war of attrition with Raizo Imawano.

Strolheim - Round 1: Malpractice vs Enigma - Tran's merry menagerie, Team Malpractice, faces off against Gen's mysterious Team Enigma. Staged in unpleasant weather atop the ancient Strolheim drawbridge. Keeping the castle gate free of rabble, Team Enigma demonstrates precision teamwork and masterful tactics. At times, however, the unruly, cantankerous, or just plain determined mob seeking entry to the German fortress is too damn many to keep out. Just barely.

Strolheim Interlude - Impromptu Match - Aranha has been pretty restless while waiting for his next match and so he attempts to deal with it by scheduling an impromptu match.

Strolheim Interlude - Teamwork? Pfahahahaa... - Poor, poor Benimaru, getting saddled with the witch, and the young girl that hates his guts. Or is that poor Alexis and Naerose, to be saddled with a 'bad' teacher? Either way, the chances of teamwork actually /working/ for this mismatched Teacher/Student team are slim. Very slim. Benimaru either needs to learn more about dealing with women, or he needs to stop being Benimaru. (And he really shouldn't have made the mistake of feeding Naerose... don't read if you have a weak stomach... who ever heard of mufruits?) - created on 19:28:23 12/03/2008 by Alexis and last modified on 11:53:28 12/04/2008.

It's merriment all around! Except for Naerose, who decides to take a nap!?! in the middle of it all! The crowd is wow'd by the fantastical amounts of energy, both physical and chi, and the absolute determination of some of the young fighters, even against all odds! Also, the human pinball makes an appearance! It's a fight you don't want to miss. (Winners: Ryu, Isamu, Kentou) - created on 19:15:36 12/07/2008 by Alexis and last modified on 10:33:28 12/09/2008.

Strolheim - Round 2: Vengeance 2.0 vs Malpractice - Strolheim, round two. Team Vengeance 2.0 squares off against Malpractice in a fight that's...very unlucky for the former! Still, Rock and Chun-Li put up quite a fight against the seemingly mismatched team who, despite their obvious lack of any real...coordination and cooperation with one another seem effective.
