Re: Aiki in Manga

Yeah evil heart was what I was thinking about...

Aiki though was terrible. Sure he used 'aiki' to defeat people in ways that defied their understanding... But the story was such a farce. And there were no principles of aiki apparent. It seems as if the author saw aiki once and thought what a cool thing to use for my project without knowing what it really was.

Throw in a lot of crazy violence and sex...and he basically made garbage.

One of my fav manga to date is not aikido based but hajjime ippo which is boxing. And this is because it's very technical and the author must have really understood boxing.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
