I really want Nono to get involved with the fighting too, she is Setsuno's apprentice after all. We have Ichiryuu's 4 Heavenly Kings, Jirou's Teppei, and Setsuno's Nono but she hasn't really been much of an influence yet. I secretly think shes massively powerful and is doing a lot behind the scenes kinda like Mistgun from FT. Also who was Ichiryuu's partner? We have Jirou with Setsuno, Midora with pretty much everyone (although I think he has an original chef partner somewhere out there, maybe someone who used to be with him then became combo'd with Ichiryuu? a love triangle that drove him to crazy town lol).
Plus everyone seems to be ancient, at least ancient enough to be around during the Acacia times, and powerful enough that he had to interact with them personally. Very curious about Mansom and all those other guys who seem to be senior members and overly powerful...
And I was just re-reading some things in the manga and it said that Ichiryuu hasn't even awakened his gourmet cells yet, they were sleeping when he went to visit Midora at his hideout yet he overpowered everyone there, I can't even imagine how strong he will be when they wake up. A drunk sealed Jirou could pretty much stop the world for a second and knock a huge about of extremely powerful people all around him without even touching them, these guys are going to go SSJ4 soon I think haha
