Eh, i'm not quite sure where to put Mansam and Shigematsu strength wise. Teppei was portrayed as on par or superior to the HK before the time skip, but currently he seemed inferior to Toriko in their short exchange. Toriko just ate Air though, so yeah if Teppei get's to consume it as well he should become quite a lot stronger. Who do you think would qualify as their power players ? You named Mohyan the legendary saiseiya, who else would you put on that list ? Dores since he was the Executive Chief of Gourmet Corp, basically the highest rank in the organization beside Midora ? Do you think Uumen could be a big surprise in terms of strength ? How high would you rate Zaus or the former member of the 0th Biotope Kousairou ? They both fought together against Setsuno and were being overpowered by her.
First of Joa, who should run in the very top league peobably on par with Acacia's disciplines - which is actually something the IGO and the 4HK lack now if we don't count Jirou - a player in the very highest league.
I don't think Zaus and Kousairou are that strong (although that might be hype for Setsuno rather than rating them down), but I'd say Niceny and Dores can play big roles, as well as maybe Kaitora. Uumen being a powerhouse would be fun, and I have a theory that Darnil Khan is actually a fighting machine.
But I think the greatest asset would probably be Joa allying with the Gourmet Nobles. They should be an asset, since they're probably the very top of the Nitro (though Jiji, who might have held the unoccupied seat on their table, might ally with the 4HK).
Maybe she needs the HK to help her get Pair because she would not be able to confront Bambina on her own ?
Possible. Especially if its really Komatsu she's after.
I thought starjun was after Midora in terms of power for the bishokuya
Because everyone else had left the Bishokukai already. Joa was mocking them.
