    But its common sense, avoid or deflect a hit and hit someone in their vitals. Why would that be a special move if thats what the point of every move is

    Simply put: The timing, "the predictability", the speed, and the success.

    "But its common sense, avoid or deflect a hit and hit someone in their vitals"

    Is it common sense to do it all as 1 move, so fast, and so unpredictably, that it's almost impossible to counter?
    It might be a simple explanation, but it's not a simple to learn/ master/ execute move. Thus why Gama probably 1 of few to be taught it. Maybe it's because physically it's not that 'complicated', but if you combine the 'mental', and physical aspects, it is definitely exceedingly a "specialty" few would be able to learn, and it would probably would still only be able to be used rarely.

    The timing is decided based on an (almost) perfect estimation of exactly what will happen within the next few moments, including how the opponent will think, if following the plan, (partly to 'corner the opponent into having no choice but to move according to plan), + how the opponent might think against the planning, compensating for it immediately; and knowing exactly what your own body is capable of at that point in time, to match/ compensate/ align/ adjust the plan accordingly.
    And all of this isn't necessarily before the attack but while attacking, so we're talking almost imperceptible moments, and even more miniscule increments of time that compose Moments. Add to that that you would have to know yourself and your opponent so well that you basically know he's going to think with accuracy, (and this isn't a "super -powered world", so that would require fighting your opponent for a while, to at least, minimally get to know them, their moves/ movements, that way), so no using it right away on new "strong" opponents. So the timing, and "the predictability" become pretty linked, and thus key things.

    Also there is the speed/ maneuverability/ agility/ adaptability to do this 'on the fly'(as the saying goes), (and once again to not be dealing with "extremes on superhuman or super powered" people), means that reaching the type of speed of mind, directly correlating
    to the speed of the body being basically better than instantaneous, (as well as The level of concentration involved), would be staggering.


    And even with all that and success is not guaranteed, it would take some1 not only doing all of the above near perfectly, but also being right, or adapting to any changes near perfectly; all in 1 flowing movement; seems pretty "special" to me.

    Thats what I was thining too Jaiden! Hes gonna split the whole room in half lol. I like how he turned everything around by showing he could fight 1 handed though, i hope Zenmaru shows him he can do the same thing. I have this feeling Ichinose is a traitor to the Muhou too, kind of like an Itachi thing. But im going to miss Kujou and his mad combo skills :'(

    CHAPTER 186

    That would suck if Kai goes out by some damn ambush. And yes Jinsuke is dying, still the match between he and Iori will be enjoyable, I hope.

    CHAPTER 187

    Iori and Jinsuke's started off pretty good. If Zenmaru can beat Kujou then he's grown a lot.

    ...it burns.

    lol. If he wins then Kai is a punk. Older bro, senior advisor to jinsuke, expert swordsman, and calm cool headed Kai was bested yet hot blooded younger brother Zen could beat this guy...?
