The true action begins...

"Now this is what I've been waiting for! My favorite part of the manga was always the Urabutosatsujin. (the illegal martial arts tournament)If you're familiar with the manga this dvd covers chapters 43-49. But I really can't wait till the 6th volume, that covers one of my fav parts of the manga, (well at least hopefully it gets that far) where Team Hokage goes up against Uruha-Maboroshi (Genjuro's team) I'm a little worried that my favorite part of the tournament (covered in manga volumes 9-11) will be seriously different from the manga. The reason I'm worried is because of the opening. It looks like Recca is fighting Gashakura, (which in the manga Gashakura is fighting Fuko), Domon is fighting Kashamaru (but in the manga Recca is fighting Kashamaru, which is how I hope it'll be because it's a ninja battle that brings Rui out, one of my favorite dragons of the Hachiryu.)but at least we know that Kaoru will fight Tsukishiro going by the open scenes. My favorite character from Flame of Recca is Fuko (which is why I love the Hokage vs. Uruha-Ma, because Fuko really shows her strength against Gashakura)
my fav quotes from there are:
Fuko: "Fuko of the Fujin is gonna explode" &
Gashakura: "Fuko, I just want you to know, I don't look down on
you for being a woman. To me, we're just two people trying to kill each other."
I'm sure you've read this a thousand times but I'll say it too, Flame of Recca is just like the pure action parts of YYH.
Well to finish this review, volume 5 covers the Hokage vs. Ku part of the manga. To be more specific, Daikoku vs. Tokiya, Minamio vs. Domon, Fujimaru vs. Fuko, and the start of Saicho vs. Recca. hope this helps.
