Sephiroth's knee collided with Kogami's abdomen, pushing him away. Sephiroth had expected much more from his own attack, but Kogami's body seemed to be tempered with a strong, natural armor that even Sephiroth would have trouble breaking at this point in time.

Tsch...

Sephiroth grimaced, realizing that he was now, undoubtedly, at a disadvantage. However, Kogami's behavior was strange. He seemed somewhat... crazed. Like he was under the influence of a drug. Sephiroth knew that he had no way of beating Kogami in his current state, so there was only one strategy that he could bank on. Hold out long enough for Kogami's empowered state to run its course, and then mount a well timed, instantaneous counterattack.

Sephiroth closed his eyes momentarily and took a deep breath, recollecting himself. There was something else that Sephiroth could bank on. A new power. Kogami's body was stronger than Sephiroth's own at this moment in time, but there was Haki. Sephiroth was calm, collected, and focused. Kogami was crazed. The Lunarian would use this to his advantage. (Just an IC way of describing the 41 to 69 COO mastery difference)

Kogami disappeared from his position, utilizing Soru to move faster than ever before. But, Sephiroth, focusing on his Kenbun-shoku no Haki, a power the name of which he did not even know yet, but was already using on a high level instinctively, would react in time. When Kogami appeared in front of Sephiroth, hurling his ten black Busou-shoku no Haki clad claws toward Sephiroth, the Lunarian retorted in kind with his own attack. Stepping forward, Sephiroth erupted with a blazing aura of fire while bringing his left forearm up. Kogami's ten claws and Sephiroth's left forearm would ram into one another, the collision generating enough power to evaporate the raindrops near them, before the rain picked up even more.

Ignition Charge...!



Kogami's DPR: 81-100: 3. Large Building Level + A:+3 + COA: +2 = 8. Island Level

Sephiroth's DPR: 81-100: 3. Large Building Level + A:+3 + COA: +2 = 8. Island Level

Having used his free, left arm for the attack - while Kogami had used both of his arms for his own attack - Sephiroth now had an opportunity for a counterattack with his blazing sword. He swung the sword diagonally upward, the blade engulfed in a spiraling vortex of fire, aiming to cut Kogami, as well as enough him in a blast of fire.

Ignition Vortex...!

Like a bullet Kogami had pushed himself towards Sephiroth. The agent figured without a doubt that his attack would land, but surprisingly he'd parry the Jusshigan. His left arm, coated with incredible fire and a quick dash forward for added momentum allowed him to clash evenly. Kogami would frown, this sudden call back to earth would pierce his high. The two attacks of high enough power to cancel out one another. Sephiroth quickly went for a counter now that Kogami was open and without a guard. The agent widened his eyes and responded through reflex and instinct by a quick hop to the side. But it still wasn't fast enough. Kogami could only look at how the very tip of Sephiroth's weapon would be moments away from drawing a nasty cut. The only thing he could use to mitigate was haki for his reaction allowed just that.

DPR 1 higher than dura: quite effective
The blade heated with fire would cut through Kogami's haki and drew a considerable amount of blood, creating a large gash through his upper body. Luckily through his evasion it wasn't life threatening as it normally would've been. Another, unforeseen side effect from the Divine Demon technique was that the blood Sephiroth drew was expelled like a jet. Spraying towards Sephiroth and most likely towards his eyes, given their proximity to one another. Blood quickly coagulated afterward, the rate the heart was pumping sealed combined with life return healed this slash beyond what a regular human could. But blinded by that move or not, Kogami would slice through his right leg. And from it the signature blue air wave flew towards Sephiroth, aimed to take advantage of the Lunarian's perhaps blinded state.

"Rankyaku!"

81-100: 3. Large Building Level +3(A) +2(haki) = 8. Island Level
After launching his projectile, Kogami would land on the ground on his back before flipping to a skid on his knees. His beating heart getting louder and louder by the minute.

Agent Kogami and Sephiroth clashed, the former bringing forward his ten claws, while the latter brought forward a forearm strike, their Hakis colliding with great might. Sephiroth had the advantage, however, for Kogami now had nothing to guard with, and Sephiroth had his sword at the ready. Slashing diagonally upward, Sephiroth aimed to cut Kogami down. However, Kogami had enough time to react, whether it was through sheer skill or the state of empowerment, or a combination of both. The sword slashed Kogami's abdomen, drawing a large amount of blood and inflicting a deep wound, but not enough to cut the man down.

Kogami jumped backward to avoid a fatal blow, while the blood from the gushing wound hit Sephiroth. He managed to close his eyes on time, but the result was there nonetheless - an opening. Kogami swung his leg, unleashing a Rankyaku. Sephiroth, knowing that he was exposed due to his impaired eyesight, spun around, swinging his sword with a large amount of fire trailing. He unleashed a tornado of fire around himself, wisps of black Busou-shoku no Haki flowing, acting as a barrier against Kogami's incoming flying slash.

Ignition Storm...!

The flying slash and the fire tornado collided equally, both powers fizzling out after a few second long clash. The heat from all the fire ascended up into the atmosphere, and the rain was now pouring strongly. Sephiroth wiped the blood off of his face, only bits of it remaining. His long white hair quickly became wet from the rain, as did his clothing. Sephiroth was breathing heavily, at this point quite exhausted from the fighting. And yet, Kogami looked like he was only getting stronger. Gritting his teeth and tightening the grip on his sword, Sephiroth contemplated what he could do.

Tsch... this isn't looking too good. When is this guy going to run out of energy?
