Hello everyone,


I know that things have been quiet but I want to discuss something. When Mikumo & Shigure had their short - but sweet - fight in chapter 365, I crossed my fingers & hoped that they would fight again (and there would be a clear winner & loser). Hell, in hindsight, Mikumo fighting Shigure & defeating (+ capturing) her would have been a nice way to start the final arc. Regardless, I love the Kenichi manga.


I really wanted to have Mikumo & Shigure fight conclusively, so to that end I sought to commission some art depicting this fight. I found someone that I believe to be perfectly suited for such a task - the artist MikazukiShigure

(http://mikazukishigure.deviantart.com , http://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=1269185). When I get all the pictures from him, I'll share them on this site. Look forward to it.


So I would like to ask you all, how do you think a fight between these 2 lovely ladies will go?

Is the artist that your commissioning this fight with, the one who's coming up with the choreography for this fight?


As far as how I think the battle would go, I think Shigure would possibly use different weapons (as well as her sword), like the caltrop for instance. The Caltrops can be used to limit where Mikumo would go in a battle. Shigure could place them in a strategic position, like her back when she expects Mikumo to attack (while doing another action so she wouldn't be noticed doing it), so Mikumo couldn't attack there. Or she could place them all around Mikumo, without being initially unnoticed that she did so, sneakily while being thrown by Mikumo. This can slow down movements, making sluggish for an instant due to having to circumvent the caltrops, Shigure can use that instant to find her and hit her. She can use Kunai or shurikens to attack clones.


Another option is Shigure can use the environment to hinder Mikumo's movements. By taking the fight to a place where it's hard to move fast, like a pond for instance, she can slow Mikumo down. Even if it didn't slow her down Shigure can follow her movements due to the disturbances in the water.  Or she can bring the fight to a place where, every movement has to be carefully considered, or else ones foot can fall through the floor. For instance, an abandoned dojo.


Or Shigure may have to use her Ougi: Soto Kyorenzan from the beginning of the fight. Since this technique allows her to create fighting shadows of her own she can use those shadows to fight Mikumo's clone.



I'll try to come up with an entire fight scenario to show how this would all be put together later on.

The artist isn't choreographing the fight.

You have some good ideas - and I can't wait to see your full version. Mine are different (and nowhere as wholesome). I had this big elaborate catfight (in the buff) planned out, but unfortunately, art costs money (and US$1.00 is several dollars in my currency). This fight is set just after Mikumo escaped from Ma Kensei, Shigure tracked her down by scent and ....


But with regards to my original script (I later tweaked it so that Shigure uses tonfa instead of the shield - also the final version will be much shorter than this initial one):


1. Shigure standing over Mikumo, with her sword pointed to Mikumo's throat. Mikumo is lying in the sand (on her stomach), pushing herself upward slightly on one arm. Both ladies are soaking wet from the sea-water. (Night-time)
2. Shigure and Mikumo are in fighting stances. Shigure is holding her sword and some shuriken, with her shield and staff (and more shuriken) in the sand beside her. 
Mikumo's fighting stance is similar to that of Leona Heidern (King of Fighters). Full body shots of both ladies.(Day-time)

3. Shigure throws her shuriken at Mikumo (Samidare Shuriken). Mikumo dodges them gracefully (like a dancer).
4. Shigure performs a diagonal slash on Mikumo - cutting Mikumo from her breast to just below her ribs (drawing blood). Shigure has her sword in one hand, and her shield in the other.
5. Mikumo swings her hand horizontally at Shigure (Mikumo's hand is in a knife-hand position). Shigure is cut across her breasts - above her nipples (drawing blood).
6. Shigure hits Mikumo's upper body with a 'Shield Bash'. 
7. Mikumo hits Shigure in the chest (below the breasts) with a knee-strike. 
8. Mikumo jumps into the air, performing a flying kick and knocking Shigure's shield away (despite Shigure being in a defensive stance, with her shield placed in front of her).
9. Shigure uses the 'Blade and Heart Become One Slash' on Mikumo (both ladies are in the air). Mikumo has her hands crossed in front of her face (tiger claw style), and her legs pulled up in front of her chest. 
Shigure is behind Mikumo, with her sword in a completed slashing motion. Mikumo now has cuts on her arms and legs (and a one on her cheek). 
Shigure has similar cuts on her hands, legs and cheek (Mikumo managed to counter Shigure while she was being slashed). Blood is spurting from both ladies' wounds.

10. Mikumo turns back, grabs Shigure by the pony-tail, and stabs her hand (knife-hand position) into Shigure's back. Shigure cries out in pain and drops her sword. 
Mikumo has one foot on the ground, while Shigure is still in the air.

11. Mikumo throws Shigure to the sand with the 'Kushinada Style Underground Throw'.
12. Mikumo raises her leg and performs an axe kick. Shigure performs a 'kip-up', dodging it.
13. Shigure and Mikumo are in new fighting stances. Shigure is holding her staff in a crouching position, and Mikumo is standing (in another Leona Heidern stance). 
Both women are bloody & sweaty. Full body shots of both ladies.

14. Mikumo and Shigure wipe away the blood from their cheeks with their hands, and lick the blood in an erotic/suggestive manner.
15. Shigure jumps into the air, ready to swing her staff downward. Mikumo's eyes glow, and several Mikumo ki clones appear.
16. Shigure swings down the staff, causing an explosion of sand. Shigure is on the ground in a crouching kung fu pose - with her staff touching the sand. The Mikumos are coughing in the background.
17. Shigure (eyes glowing) is in front of the real Mikumo, ready to swing her staff. Mikumo appears afraid.
18. Mikumo kicks, but Shigure dodges, using the 'Kosaka Ryuu: Enbi Tsumujikaze' to leap over Mikumo. 
Shigure is behind Mikumo in this picture (ready to strike with her staff), but three Shigures (total) are shown, each in a different stage of performing the 'Kosaka Ryuu: Enbi Tsumujikaze' 
(one is standing in front of Mikumo - Mikumo's foot passes through this one - and the other one is above Mikumo's head in a somersault twist).

19. Shigure stabs Mikumo in the back with her staff. Mikumo cries out in pain.
20. Mikumo and Shigure are now kneeling in the sand. Shigure is behind Mikumo, her breasts pressed against Mikumo's back. Shigure is pulling her staff towards Mikumo's throat. 
Mikumo and Shigure's faces are close, with Mikumo looking angrily back at Shigure (Shigure is smiling). 
One of Mikumo's hands is on the staff, pushing it away from her throat. 
Mikumo's other hand is on Shigure's face (her fingers in front and behind Shigure's ear). Both ladies are quite sweaty.

21. Mikumo is performing an over-head throw on Shigure. Shigure has been lifted off of the ground, her face is in shock (and her staff has been dropped). Mikumo is smiling. Mikumo is in a crouching position (one of her legs is still in a kneeling pose).
22. Shigure is spread eagle on the sand with outlines of hands pinning her limbs down (Shigure looks helpless). 
Mikumo is standing over Shigure (with an even larger Mikumo behind her), having performed the 'Kushinada Style Thousand-Year Throw'. Mikumo's eyes are glowing. 
Mikumo is looking down on Shigure, standing over Shigure's belly button.

23. Mikumo is sitting on top of Shigure (straddling her). One of Mikumo's hands is wrapped around Shigure's throat, and Mikumo's other hand has been raised up (knife hand position), pointed at Shigure as if to stab her. 
Mikumo is smiling in victory, while Shigure looks frustrated by her defeat.

I didn't know that commissioning art would prove to be so pricey. Are there any other artists that you would like to see draw a fight between HSDK characters?

I like your fight better than the one I had in mind. It's pretty hard to come up with the fight I want to come up with. It will take me a little while to come up with one. Anyway here's some other artist, that are hyperlinked below, that might be good:

Thanks. Unfortunately the final product might end up being a lot different - and VERY NSFW (but I'll make sure to share it here first). I even decided to make some changes based on some of what you said. 

Those artists aren't bad either.

That's awesome man

That's awesome man

yeah, I might cut down the total number of pages to 8. I got the 3rd page earlier this week, but I didn't like how it turned out (it wasn't the artist's fault - he did great - I just didn't like it) - so I might re-commission it.
