... I was supposed to?

Yes that WOULD defeat the purpose of the little venture, so might want to prepare.

I intend to.

"...well I might, but I got to go home right now, I'll see you later."

I suggest we exchange phone numbers first. Just because. Also, it's apparently what friends do.

Honoka runs into the kitchen shouting about how Kenichi's gonna get pummeled again to mom.

Nijima soon responds and gives you a muscle head by the name of Raimonji, he quickly responds with a yes that is his name I am not yanking your chain. He's not REALLY a Karate club member but he's on the roster and while he doesn't have much...skill, he just about as strong as Neanderthal.

Humm ... text him back with a question as to whether he has any information as to their families, school performance, etc. Never know what's going to pop up that I might consider useful. I'll let him know if the situation changes in any appreciable way so he can set up betting pools.

Snowy purrs and you head up to your room you share with Kenichi, where he's just found that Karate self-help book. He runs into you and tells you that he's going to use the thing starting tommorrow on Sunday out in the local park and he suggests you come with him, whatever caveman Daimonji finds is going to be likely just as bad as him.

I suggest that we leaf through it ... then go online and research a bit more there as well ... and pick one or two things to practice. Preferably basic stuff that seems useful. When he asks me why, I'll reply about remembering an old Bruce Lee quote about not being afraid of someone who's practiced a thousand different kicks once but of someone who's practiced one kick a thousand times.

... and also, I will then sheepishly add that we don't have the kind of time that would go into absorbing any kind of breadth of knowledge.

I'll print out some basic boxing footwork and punch diagrams as well. Not that it'd be easier to learn, but the basic techniques there are really basic, effective, and can translate fairly well.

... oh, and I'll text Miu to let her know where we'll be and ask if she'd swing by, as we could really use the advice of someone who actually knows what they're doing rather than guessing at it.

Though not. Ignorance is only bliss until the hurting starts.

Yup he's a biggun

I resist the urge to comment about wheaties.

Honestly though, he looks smaller in the pictures.

He seems vaguely amused about the entire story though he does think that while brave, it probably wasn't the smartest thing to do to pick a fight with an armed thug like that, at least for you.

"I don't start fighters, only end them. I tried to convince them to let us go peacefully... they didn't listen.

He does take the bottle, muttering the name of the thing in English, when he opens the bottle you swear you can hear his nose hairs sizzling. He coughs a bit then screws the bottle back on, "Well that would certainly work. So tell me, what brings the two of you to my little Dojo?

"At first we came to escort the young lady home. But after the fight, she made the offer us a chance to learn from this dojo. My simply desires the chance to become stronger while I'm not fool enough to turn down a chance to learn from the legendary Superman with No Equals who once defeated 500 trained men in a fight..."

I smile serenely and bow respectfully. "I do my research, Hayato-sama"

Well she does give you a number but you notice it's a ground line.

Humm ... text him back with a question as to whether he has any information as to their families, school performance, etc. Never know what's going to pop up that I might consider useful. I'll let him know if the situation changes in any appreciable way so he can set up betting pools.

Just the standard stuff, nothing really you could use in a fight though Daimonji apparently hospitalized some people in middleschool

He does so with the betting pool with most bets being exactly what kinds of injuries the two of you will get.

Well he agrees, and after one look through, you find that the damn thing is honestly useless except as it offers gems of wisdom like planting a seed and jumping over it every day....

The print outs looks far more promising.

Miu's the one to pick it up and when she hears what you're asking you to do she's more than glad to help out.

The next day the two of you are practicing some basic punches and footwork when she shows up.

After hearing some better descriptions about what the two of you are up against she offers some fairly simple footwork called gu bo and pa bo which allows a person to quickly dodge their opponent and get to the side of them. Kenichi...trips up a bit but he's soon practicing the damn moves in a ring around the entire park.

Well Kenichi had fallen on his backside in that picture.

"I don't start fighters, only end them. I tried to convince them to let us go peacefully... they didn't listen.

"They never do, do they?" He seems almost wistful about fun memories.

"At first we came to escort the young lady home. But after the fight, she made the offer us a chance to learn from this dojo.

I smile serenely and bow respectfully. "I do my research, Hayato-sama"

He seems somewhat surprised that you know him, he doesn't really advertise himself much and outside of the rich, powerful, or martial artists, not many know a great deal about him. "Well I'm a bit flattered you know about me, I don't exactly go out of my way to present myself."

Then he turns to Kenichi, "How about you lad, is what your brother told me true?"

"Y-yes ofcourse sir, I DO want to learn!"

"Well then, come along and let me show you around the dojo."

The three of you, Miu having gone to change, tour the grounds with the leader talking about the idea behind the place, how they honor the origins of the arts despite it becoming merely a sport in much of the world. You look out in the yard and spot a massive Thai man with his hair tied up with a headband punching a bunch of man-sized statues into dust with blows that look like they could take out an elephant. When he stops his head cocks in your direction and he seems to be smelling something, "Appa?" Then faster than should be humanly possible, he looming over the two of you, and you swear his eyes are glowing, "Why does Appachai smell home coming off of you?" then he squats down, taking a couple of whiffs from you.

I grin and a bottle comes out almost with the sound of a drawn sword. "What you detect is this, the world's most powerful hot sauce!"

Please note, this bottle is not labeled "XXX Death Sauce" but rather "Thai Style Death Sauce"

I offer it to him. "Keep this one, my large and intimidating friend and enjoy the firey flavors of home! I have many!"

He is actually kind of impressed at your ingenuity and if he were honest he's had to live off of the loot gathered by mauling crooks before.

"Still impressive son." Though you do get the feeling that he doesn't work in those mostly because he doesn't like to make a living in tournaments.

"Appa! Yep that is Appachai, Appachai's Muay Thai is the strongest out there!"

He takes the bottle and pops it open, dips one of his big fingers in it and tastes a drop of it. He's still for a moment before he runs howling for a bucket of cold water and he shoves his head in, resulting in steam rising from it. He then stands back up, bucket still on his head and in a tinny voice shouts thank-you that's the best he's had in a long time.

The elder can't help but laugh at Appachai's antics and they continue on, Kenichi more than a little confused.

The next stop comes when Kenichi notices a slightly open door and looks in, his eyes bug and he calls you over to look,

Though this time it was two stars the elder caught, still between the same two fingers and you'd never be able to tell which one he caught first. He mentions their names, Kensei Ma the small man in the hat, and Shigure Kosaka the young lady with the incredibly sharp sword and skill with said weapon, and apparently a huge budget for weapons to slice up.

Practice, practice, practice. Make sure to break up the drills with, say, a few minutes of jump rope and keep hydrated.

After a few turns of this, or when lunch-time comes around, whichever comes first, call a break and suggest we should practice against one-another, taking turns being the attacker so we can get a feel for how you'd actually use the technique instead of merely drilling it. Or if Miu would care to do the honors there? Well, as long as she holds back a bit anyway?

Note Kenichi IS getting freaked by this whole experience but your running commentary is keeping him from running out and screaming.

Well she suggests that the two of you practice it with each other and you practice the dodging move back and forth with each other as quickly as you can, while you still stumble and get hit a couple of times, the both of you DO seem to be taking to the move. Soon it's almost a dance with you gu bo and pa bo ing each other.

Miu seems almost overjoyed about how doggedly you seem to be working and by the end of the day you are able to confidently use the move, the next day Kenichi wants to practice the steps on the way to school.

To better get used to ... well, using the technique on a moment's notice rather than just getting into the rut of either using it or not.

If we meet Miu on the way, I thank her for teaching us a technique with so many potential uses. I can think of at least three ways of using it offensively off the cuff.

Hmm ... did Niijima ever get back to me with that picture of my wannabe executioner?

So you claim, you share a room with the guy, not too many secrets between brothers.

"Okay. That's mean."

"Oh you need to relax, Samanosuke, they didn't mean any harm by it."

I just smile insufferably and look him up on my phone.

So no fear!

You find out some basic info, he's basically one of THE BEST out there when it comes to Karate and there are few non-Karate fighters out there that can handle him.

"Cocky brat ain't yay?"

I grab his collar so he can't run off and say. "Well then. I guess we're already dead," I glance at my brother, "I blame you..."

He calms down after a moment but a door opening to reveal the final master Akisame Koetsuji, pushes him over the edge and he keels over. Leaving you alone to deal with this mess.

"High-strung isn't he?" Sakaki comments with mild bemusement on his face.

She's glad she could help and walks with you to school.

Would she recommend going for leverage or hyperextending the elbow of whoever is attacking as a following up?

Anyway, I let Kenichi make most of the small-talk on the way to school, poking and prodding the conversation along if and when it flags by mentioning he likes self-help books while I prefer fiction and what hobbies does she have?


... his dentist bills must be horrendous.

At least I know who to look out for, though. I should google him at some point, just because.

I can do that during break, I suppose. Time for class. And to frustrate the history teacher by handing in stuff that's actually researched and adorned with proper citations so he has to look it up before grading it. I live for those little moments of Schadenfreude.

So you claim, you share a room with the guy, not too many secrets between brothers.

Muhahahaha!

"Oh you need to relax, Samanosuke, they didn't mean any harm by it."

"Call me a pitiful uninitiated neophyte but I tend to view shurikens dimly."

You find out some basic info, he's basically one of THE BEST out there when it comes to Karate and there are few non-Karate fighters out there that can handle him.

Cool.

"Cocky brat ain't yay?"

"Just well informed and prone to using sarcasm and a veneer of implacability as a form of personal defense."

Smirk.

He calms down after a moment but a door opening to reveal the final master Akisame Koetsuji, pushes him over the edge and he keels over. Leaving you alone to deal with this mess.

"High-strung isn't he?" Sakaki comments with mild bemusement on his face.

"At times. Just splash a bucket of water on him and he'll be fine."

Actually just some footwork and a push will finish the job if you wish though you might want to wait until he wears down. Besides you still have a week.

[quote]Anyway, I let Kenichi make most of the small-talk on the way to school, poking and prodding the conversation along if and when it flags by mentioning he likes self-help books while I prefer fiction and what hobbies does she have?

Her hobbies, seem to involve cooking and training with her grandfather mostly.

... his dentist bills must be horrendous.

Well the guy chews through the rope....
OC:Recognize the series that guy is from?

At least I know who to look out for, though. I should google him at some point, just because.

Not much information on wild Raimonji other than he's officially a member of the Karate club, and he's a delinquent.

I can do that during break, I suppose. Time for class. And to frustrate the history teacher by handing in stuff that's actually researched and adorned with proper citations so he has to look it up before grading it. I live for those little moments of Schadenfreude.

He almost gnaws on his table when he tries to grade them later.

The week goes by with relatively little fanfare until the day of the Fight. Dai- and Raimonji are rarin to go and the two of you seem just a little...underwhelming, Kenichi's sweating bullets.

The captain of the Karate club is leaving it up to you and Kenny to decide who's going to fight first.

Actually his torso...he's a big dude.

Muhahahaha!

....do I want to know?

"Call me a pitiful uninitiated neophyte but I tend to view shurikens dimly."

He shrugs and says something about, getting used to it.

Cool.

Yup

"Just well informed and prone to using sarcasm and a veneer of implacability as a form of personal defense."

"So the puppy can bark, but how's his bite?"

"At times. Just splash a bucket of water on him and he'll be fine."

Cue one bucket of water later, brought by Miu of all people, (OC:She's wearing the purple outfit but she's wearing a sweater and shorts along with the apron, still stupendously sexy but not stripperific Wink Just for you Samanosuke Razz )

Kenichi comes to with his head in her lap and her seeming quite worried about him....lucky little bastard....maybe you should try the dead faint to....

Kenichi recovers quick enough and he looks like he's ready to run. Move quick enough and you might cut his run off before it starts.

I make sure to trip him and tell him that if he tries this shit again, I'm burning his self-help books.

Seriously those things take up most of our goddamned room!

Well, yes, that's what I meant by leverage, but the way Daimonji, for instance, punches ... that elbow is going to be right there. Put one hand on the wrist, the other against the back of his upper arm, just above the joint, pull with one, push with the other ...

I spend the rest of the week getting Ken up early to start our mornings with jumprope and basic drills. After enlisting Honoka's aid to actually get us up. Continue the routine on the way to school, much like we did on the first day, and after school experiment with how one could potentially involve that boxing drag-shuffle footwork as a means to increase and decrease distance. Also practice throwing that 'one punch' until it's reflex. Might as well be a straight, to take a page out of Holyland.

Cooking's handy. Must remember to ask her for stir-fry recipes.

That's not a rope, that's a chain.

On the other hand, maybe he just wanted to take an intimidating photo of himself and Niijima found it online somewhere, or in the club roster.

He almost gnaws on his table when he tries to grade them later.

PTSD college flashbacks no doubt. My work here is done ^^

I look at Ken.

"Usually, I'd be stepping up there, but ... this is sort of your day, brother mine. Care to do the honors?"

If he agrees ...

"One last piece of advice. Don't think. Do. You know this stuff, so believe in yourself a little."

Wry grin.

"And if you don't believe in yourself, then believe in the me who believes in you."

He smiles and puts a hand on your shoulder and steps forward. "I'll go."

Daimonji laughs cruely "Fine with me."

Kenichi shudders a bit but steps forward ready to face the big lummox, Daimonji rears back for a punch, lets it loose right for Kenichi's head, and completely misses as Kenichi's already at Daimonji's side.

The entire room is stunned that Kenichi dodged that attack, snarling Daimonji tries again, this time with a kick. And again he misses, this time Kenichi rears back for a munch, and only makes the bigger guy mildly grunt, before he bunches again.

Over and over this continues, Kenichi only able to do some mild damage but keeping Daimonji off balance and mad as a hurt bear. After a while both combatants are flat out exhausted, Daimonji gasping and Kenichi wincing from the few times the big ox managed a glancing blow. Finally Daimonji made his most wild haymaker punch yet, once again Kenichi dodged then got his arm under Daimonji's armpit, got one leg locked behind one of Daimonji's and knocked the guy on his back using his own momentum against him. The guy was out like a light, exhaustion and the impact of his fall knocking him out for a moment, Kenichi stands slightly battered, wheezing a bit, but victorious.

There is a momentary silence, then the captain stutters out, "W-winner Kenichi Shirahama!"

Kenichi is silent for a moment then he starts whooping in victory and for the simple fact that he's still alive. This last for as long as it takes for Daimonji to recover with a bucket of water to the face.

He shakes his head from the water, reassess his situation, then after all but roaring in frustration, turns to Raimonji who's already up and ready to fight. "Cave that other squirt's skull in!"

"Orrra! No worries Dai buddy, I'll kick this runt's ass all across the dojo!" He follows up with a flurry of punches, then stands on the mat ready to fight.

Looking at him he isn't as massive as Daimonji but he seems to be somewhat faster to make up for it, expect to take a few more punches than Kenichi did.

Isn't that how it usually goes? Nothing new there ^^ If there's one good thing about all those beatings I took, it's the fact that it let me build up some not inconsiderable pain tolerance.

I don't bother talking. Instead, I let my face go flat and just look at my opponent. I don't need to think about what I'm going to do. I've been working it out in my head for the better part of all of the past week. First, I need to grasp his timing. Dodge what I can, take the hits I can't dodge as best I can manage. Goad him into hyperextending his elbow. Lock it and put pressure on it. Use the pain of that to control his arm and get _that_ to the limits of its extension, and run Raimonji into a wall, face-first.

That gets a small laugh out of some of the masters and then Elder Furinji continues, "A desire to stand up for oneself and filial piety along with a desire to not be left behind. That works, that works just fine."

Then Ma Kensei steps up, "All that's needed now is the paperwork." He pulls out what looks like a scroll with a basic contract saying you'll be students here. Kenichi signs it and I assume you do as well, if you read it there isn't really any hidden lines or wordplays in the thing so it looks safe.

Once signed Kensei responds, "Now all we need is 2000 yen from the both of you. But with your contribution with Miu I think we can waiver that for a while."

"Indeed that was quite generous of you. Our dojo has always been a little tight for cash. If it weren't for Miu we'd likely have gone under a while back."

"Oh yes, cooking, cleaning, laundry, why she even balances the accounts, without her we'd be a sorry bunch of masters."

Kenichi at this point is imagining Miu being forced to do slave labor for a bunch of thugs, and a couple of the masters Sakaki and Akisame particularly seem to notice his thoughts on his face.

Well Raimonji comes out with punches flying and it's all you can do to keep dodging, occasionally take a blow to the shoulder or chest. Thankfully your week of practice seems to be able to keep up with his blows, for the most part.

Much like with Kenichi's fight this seems to keep on going until he overextends himself with a punch and you manage to grab it and take advantage of it. No wall is really close enough but you DO manage to spin him around to where he loses his balance and falls over. Raimonji is quick to get up though and he comes back though just a hair slower.

This is repeated again and Raimonji this time busted his nose on the floor, blood flowing from his nostrils.

One last time and this time you're pretty close to a wall, with all your might you drive him as hard as you can and he splats into the wall with a thud, he seems to just stand still for a moment before he falls backwards insensate.

The fight has been won and Daimonji looks shocked, horrified, and even on the verge of tears. He's on his hands and knees begging captain Chukuba not to kick him out of the club. Chukuba looks disgusted with Daimonji and looks like he's about to bodily throw the kid out when Kenichi steps up. "Hold on, I didn't really win, neither did my brother, the both of us used illegal moves to win out there, so I guess the both of us need to leave the club then and Daimonji gets to stay."

...Oh Kenichi and your bleeding heart.

"Daimonji-kun didn't _specify_ the nature of the contest of strength, did he? It wasn't said anywhere that we had to beat them using karate, was it?"

Pause.

Let the pause extend.

"But, I suppose neither my brother nor myself are really suited to pure karate ... so ... Chukuba-sempai, if Daimonji-kun and Raimonji-kun agree to something, I suppose we could let this one slide?"

Paaaaause.

"Let them study, but have them also study the philosophical part of the art. The history. To make sure they respect the art, and respect what the karate club stands for. That they have the proper _deference_ to tradition and those that came before them."

Bow respectfully to Chukuba.

"If they agree to this, we will respectfully resign and leave them to the just and righteous mercy of their seniors."

Also, after the fight, use phone directory, google maps, various similar resources and Miu's phone number to find out where she lives. Ken and I (though, probably with mom's magnanimous help) are going to bake her a _fucking huge chocolate cake_ as thanks.

I pull out a set of reading glasses and a magnifying glass before I let him touch it. Paranoia is a survival skill, and don't touch anything before its been read.

And yes, I will argue some of the points on it... and in general... well... IRL I'm a former paralegal who's voiced in contract law. I use my Law Fu. Very Happy

"Any way we can pay in steed as... well... 2000 yen is a bit more than we can realistically manage with the regularity demanded by the contract. For example I'm a good cook... Ken here's good at cleaning."

"Indeed that was quite generous of you. Our dojo has always been a little tight for cash. If it weren't for Miu we'd likely have gone under a while back."

"Hmmmm..." my eyes light up and he can probably tell that I'm thinking of ways to fix that...

The dark chuckling and balefully glowing eyes should be a bit of a give away...

Daichi pondered the transer for a moment, wondering what had led to it. Perhaps she had gotten into a few fights, given her ability in combat? Then again, she didn't seem the type to start fights...but she also didn't seem the type to be able to randomly knock he and his brother onto there heads.

Considering their situation Daimonji is all but on his hands and knees begging Chukuba to accept the offer that he promises to follow everything you suggested to the letter.

Chukuba, being half a thug himself, really didn't give a hoot either way so he shrugs and says, "Fine, so long as you keep your word."

And with that the brothers Shirahama are out of the club.

Unfortunately you run into Nijima who tells the two of you that after you beat the -monji boys the head of the Karate Club Chukuba, who's an ace fighter who could have taken out both of your opponents simultaneously, AND has gang connections wants to have a fight with the both of you.

Kenichi promptly wigs out.

Also, after the fight, use phone directory, google maps, various similar resources and Miu's phone number to find out where she lives. Ken and I (though, probably with mom's magnanimous help) are going to bake her a _fucking huge chocolate cake_ as thanks.

Well, after an afternoon's search you track down the address, and after explaining the situation, mom's more than glad to help, even giggling a bit as you work. The scent draws Honoka like blood a shark, and she's buzzing around the entire time. With a quick good-bye the two of you start lugging the damn thing for the address you found.

Which eventually leads you to a huge and slightly ominous looking walled grounds, with huge red gates with the name, Ryozanpaku painted over them. Kenichi is slightly daunted by them.

Psyckosama wrote:I smile and bow. "Thank you, sensei..."

Kenichi bows as well.

I pull out a set of reading glasses and a magnifying glass before I let him touch it. Paranoia is a survival skill, and don't touch anything before its been read.

And yes, I will argue some of the points on it... and in general... well... IRL I'm a former paralegal who's voiced in contract law. I use my Law Fu. Very Happy

Well once again, there isn't really anything that could be used against you and the contract it given back.

"Any way we can pay in steed as... well... 2000 yen is a bit more than we can realistically manage with the regularity demanded by the contract. For example I'm a good cook... Ken here's good at cleaning."

"Well...maybe we could use you on the weekends."

"I should warn you though...my brother kinda cooks things a bit on the hot side, took the rest of us forever to get used to it." Kenichi mentions.

Sakaki doesn't seem all that impressed at Kenichi's warning, "Ah couldn't be nothing we couldn't handle."

"Hmmmm..." my eyes light up and he can probably tell that I'm thinking of ways to fix that...

The dark chuckling and balefully glowing eyes should be a bit of a give away...

Raised eyebrows abound.

"We could lower her workload..."

"That you could though you are paying students."

I give him a look. "Bro..."

"Huh? What?"

True

Then again, she didn't seem the type to start fights...but she also didn't seem the type to be able to randomly knock he and his brother onto there heads.

Heh

Brian Boru wrote:"Hmm, there's a shortcut?" He asked with a hint of curiosity. "Never knew that, and I lived here all my life. All right, lead the way Miu."

Well the...short cut she takes you on makes you feel like Ezio from Assassin's creed with all the wall hopping and walking along, well she hops and runs along, you scramble behind her as best you can.

Until you reach the biggest canal in the neighborhood, before you ask whether or not you're supposed to swim it or not she hops on the fence and LEAPS the damn distance!

OOC: So...wait, are we playing this as a self insert or as a actual RP character?

Well...I guess rp though if you want to add SI to it feel free, dual memories I guess.

Thumbs up.

"Great! How do you feel about curry?"

Please note, my curry needs to be cooked in a clay pot because it'll eat through steel...

Raised eyebrows abound.

"As my brother could tell you, making money is a bit of an art form with me..."

"That you could though you are paying students."

I mean as part of our pay.

"Huh? What?"

"Don't fret..."

I look at Sensei. "Would it be possible to stay the night? I have a feeling the roads will be 'interesting' at the moment... no need to take foolish risks."

If given the okay, I text the folks we're spending the night with a friend.

Depends on the kind of thug he is.

Not exactly unexpected.

"You didn't really think it would end with just this, did you Ken? Keep training, keep getting better, and people are going to want to test themselves against you. Like a cliched shounen manga. We could just quit now, get our asses beat, and go back to just worrying about random idiots. But ..."

Grin.

"Winning felt _good_ didn't it? So did standing up for yourself."

Brofist.

This is why god invented cell phones. Call Miu's number ... but not before telling Ken to definitely not wig out while helping me hold the cake-box. Seriously. Miu would be sad. He doesn't want to see her sad, does he?

And while it wasn't exactly intended as such, the cake and the fact that I brought Snowy along again might help us convince her to give us some more advice.

Sometimes I'm ashamed of myself. Sometimes.

Right...

They seem to discuss for a moment then Akisame says, "We don't see any reason why not, and we could use the evening to see where exactly you stand along with some light conditioning."

If given the okay, I text the folks we're spending the night with a friend.

The 'rents seemed overjoyed that the two of you have friends, they were starting to get a bit worried.

Brofist.

Well when you put it that way...but he still isn't happy about it, but it DID feel good to fight back just once, "So long as you got my back bro, I think I'll be alright." And he returns the brofist.

This is why god invented cell phones. Call Miu's number ... but not before telling Ken to definitely not wig out while helping me hold the cake-box. Seriously. Miu would be sad. He doesn't want to see her sad, does he?

NO HE DOESN'T!!! NEVER!!

Snerk

You get Miu answering again and when you tell her where you are, she sounds overjoyed and says she'll be right there.

Right when a side door neither of you noticed, a bellow of "APPA!" Sound out right before the gates blast open. The cake goes flying and you get knocked on your collective asses. But before said cake splats into ruin a gigantic blonde man with a long beard and mustache appears out of nowhere and catches the came with absolute ease.

Yes, I do indeed make it at full power.

Yeah!

Well, some "light" conditioning and cooking...

My idea of a hot curry is probably something akin the meal from this: https://www.ubersite.com/m/98211

...

so, yeah ...

... that just happened?

"Um ... nice save? Thanks?" I offer to the big guy.

Hmm ... traditional clothes. Really, really ridiculously in shape. Long hair and cliched Old Guy Martial Arts Master beard and 'stache.

Well when you start gathering ingrediants from the kitchen, Kenichi immediately leaves the building and goes to sit out in the garden, the masters are somewhat confused at this but half an hour later, they've already joined him. At the edge of your hearing you can hear the dogs beginning to howl and other animals are starting to freak as well.

Evil smile.

Heh

"Great. And I can make dinner..."

While your cooking, Kenichi is being put through his paces, and he's howling in agony at the top of his lungs.

Yeah!

Well, some "light" conditioning and cooking...

My idea of a hot curry is probably something akin the meal from this: https://www.ubersite.com/m/98211

Well when your finished, Kenichi's in a bizarre looking situation.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-tnNzNcQFhQY/TlOfh1rR4eI/AAAAAAAAAQI/UGxE2JdbLtk/015.jpg?imgmax=2000

He's yammering, "I thought we were going to do some LIGHT stuff."

Akisame quickly responds that this IS light.

"Oh you're quite welcome, it would have been a tragedy if this was lost." He hefts the cake, which Miu, and the apparent gate opener, a massive man with sliverish hair and tanned skin, equally as towering and massive as the older man, both stare at in wonder.

"And yes I guess you could call me her sensei, I'm Furinji Hayato her grandfather, welcome to Ryozanpaku. I don't believe I caught your names."
