Rita was a truly captivating woman, exuding that fierce nature he valued so much, precisely because he found such will and vigor to be lost to this generation. There were no cries of pain and agony after suffering damage, what met his ears was adrenaline-filled mirth as her joyfully booming voice filled the night skies. Her destructive capacity was insane. The Rising Dragon was more than aware that even two of these attacks would decrease his chances of emerging victorious. Of course, though that may have been his intent, he did not account for the thunderous bolt of energy soaring towards him from the heavens above.
It was only by a hair's breadth that he sensed this hellish bolt of energy as his head turned upward. However, he had already surrounded the advantage of evasion by relentlessly charging forward. It was perhaps a tenth of a second but Kenichi couldn't let that land on him directly. He didn't have much of a choice in the matter but even still, at that very last second, he would redirect his fist towards the bolt, with the energy piercing into his knuckles as that inferno of aqua-colored energy exploded on impact, surging into the night skies above.
Amidst the colorful explosion that sent him flying like a bowling ball thrown high into the air, Kenichi knew he'd be more than just injured if he remained within this whirlwind of chaos. Using his dexterity, he would use the floating debris that was once again tossed up into the air to emerge from that fierce wave of destruction, though he was far from unscathed.
Landing onto what little pavement was left, heavy breaths of adrenaline-filled excitement filled his lips. His hoodie had been entirely burned to ash, with noticeable burn marks on his arms and shoulders. His fist was bloodied and had his body been any less durable, it may have been destroyed entirely. There was blood running from his nose, while a noticeable cut could be seen on his forehead, a cut that bloodied his brown hair. Wiping away the blood from his nose and head with the one hand that hadn't been compromised, a booming chuckle would escape the young man's lips as he gazed at Rita with joy. She was a disadvantageous opponent for him but that was what made it all so exciting!
By suffering this level of damage, one thing had perhaps become abundantly clear as he reflected on the attack she employed from the skies above. Had it been something she employed just then... or perhaps, was it the attack she launched from the ground as he circled around her? If his conjecture was correct, his battle had been made even more difficult, for it meant he had to overcome the energy entirely rather than evading it outright.
"Amazing! I knew I was right about you, Boss!! It seems that all that fierce energy you exude in your day to day life shines just as brilliantly on the battlefield! That's the type of energy I live for! Here I come! Don't hold back! Show me more of that PASSION I live for!"
Roaring into the air, Kenichi would tear what little of his upper wear remained, using it as a cloth to bandage his damaged hand covered in blood. With a shield before her, Kenichi had to think on his feet and choose his attacks carefully. He had to find a way to divert the woman's attention, disrupt her energy, and find an opening he could exploit. Observing their surroundings with his eyes, an idea formed within the Rising Dragon's mind.
There was rubble here, albeit spread around what had effectively become something of a war zone as a result of Rita's attacks. He wondered... might there be something heavy he could launch in her direction? With a thunderous slam of his foot against the ground, Kenichi would kick up some of the debris and dust from the ground in a bid to cloud her vision and hide where he might strike next. Using his own high-speed technique equivalent to that of shunpo, he would drag his feet throughout the ground, creating a small whirlwind of dust in his wake, shrouding ten meters of their battlefield within several pieces of debris.. If she was capable of maintaining her energy even after it was evaded, it was certainly within his best interest to keep his eyes peeled and maintain a steady sense of awareness at all times. There was also his hand.
How much could he strike with it after taking a significant amount of damage? To hell with that train of thought. Push past his limits! That's how he always approached the battlefield! Grabbing onto a fallen tree, Kenichi would swing it forward through the air, aiming it in Rita's direction. He would leap onto the tree momentarily as the tree barreled towards her at an immense pace.
Kicking off with his feet, Kenichi would allow the tree to soar towards her as a distraction before going airbone and utilizing his uninjured hand to gather enough momentum to utilize the same technique, punching his hand forward as another atsmophere wave of force would come rumbling towards her again. He didn't take her for a fool. He had to use deception and wit if he desired any chance of victory. His aim was to distract her with the tree, to see if the energy could defend her from every angle. It was a gamble but no fight could be won without them. His current state wouldn't allow him to go on for hours on end but he was still in workable condition, at least.
