Fact. I really, REALLY wanted Kawachi to just beat him ONCE. Like, for once Kawachi proved he was worth a damn and...he didn't. And even fucking samurai guy didn't win against him, which was fucking ridiculous. You can pretty much tell the fight he was going to lose, 'cause they always taste his bread first and the one time they didn't he loses.
And the reason he loses is fucking dumb. He makes mistakes he could've been making the whole series but never did. But in this one battle he fucks it up? Seriously?
It became all about Kazuma winning after a while, which got boring. They really ignored the other characters and any time they had a chance to do something awesome with them, they didn't.
