Kuro was as well remembered and recived as I thought. Kuro-mine, just how many dropped out of the tournement when they realized they were in your bracket?
So far Touya, myself, Kuronue, Yuusuke, Suzuki, Hokushin, Yomi, Mukuro, Yomi, Shishiwakamaru, Rinku, Hiei, Raizen's former sparring partners, Jin, and I beleive Trish have made it into the tournement proper. Oh, and Shigure, though I had thought Hiei had killed him.
Yomi arrived at the tournement with his... son... in tow, who also fought in the preliminaries. I do have to say, the boy is amazingly stubbron, certainly his father's son. I think he was close to willing to die to defeat Yomi, but he thankfully surrendered when he realized he couldn't do it, not yet. He has the potiental I think, however.
The fights start again soon, with Shishiwakamaru vs Hokushin, Jin vs... one of Raizen's old friends, I forget his name at the moment. Touya, you have a fight today as well, correct?

((YYH cast: Please inform me if this isn't alright with ya'll and I'll happly make changes. Setine, is it fine for me to figure Trish made it past prelims?))
Only Yuusuke. [The sound of a squeaky chair as he sits. His voice sounds amused and somewhat fond.] Only Yuusuke would come up with something so... outlandish. An election in the Makai. Raizen is likely laughing his head off, if only for the look on Yomi's face. Fighting for the rule of the Makai...
[Tuts softly] Not a job I particurally want, but I'll fight to keep it from Yomi and Mukuro.
Yuusuke, I trust Hokishin survived the heart attack you gave him for "vandalizing" the national treasure?
[Locked to self/Expect hackers and Kaito and Yusuke if they want only]
[Voice is no longer as fond, sounding almost tired.] It's been hell, this past month. A few days after my arrival -- which was
[A deep sigh] He captured my assassin. Tortured him. Blinded him. Refused to kill him. Not until he confessed the identity of the one that hired him.
[A small touch of anger enters his voice.] He brought it on himself! They both did! Yomi for forgetting his place and the assassin for not doing his job properly! He should have died! No one challenges me like that and lives!
[An audiable inhale, as though he's trying to calm himself.] Lesson learned. Don't sleep with the underlings. They get full of themselves, start acting out and challening you for leadership and you have to kill them.
At least I was able to secure my position as Yomi's second until Yuusuke's plan went into effect.
Oh, and no one possesses my brother.
((OOC: FINALLY! Canon progression time. I think I'm caught up now, if I'm not please let me know. Also, I'm at work right now, so I won't be returning tags until at least seven eastern time. Might pop in for a few minutes to answer one or two; the place is freaking dead. -_- Oh, and strikes are mutters.))
I should have gone this morning, but... matters forced a delay in my trip.
Yomi can bite me; I keep my own schedual.
So this evening I will be going to Genkai's Temple where the Spirit World Defense Force will open a portal to the Makai so that I may spend the month serving as an advisor to Yomi.
I... am unsure just how much contact I will have with the Ningenkai or the community. Gandera is supposedly far more advanced than most of the Makai, but I do not believe it is advanced enough to connect with such a vastly different technological set up. I will keep up as best I can, however.
I suppose I shall see you all soon.

[Locked, unhackable, to Kid]
I'll be sure to steal way some time to continue to tend to your injuries.
It's amazing what bribery, blackmail, and seduction can acomplish. And I think we should have a talk or two.

((And we FINALLY have more canon progression! *is watching the appropriate episodes now, actually* First strike is thoughts, second strike is difficult to hack, but not totally impossible.))
Kurama stepped out of Hakuba's car and looked around, fully aware that he'd just been hopped fifteen years into the future of Tokyo. He took in as much as he could, eyes wide and searching. It was partly old habits; searching for threats, avenues of escape, and places to hide. But then he also was taking advantage of this chance, to learn about future events and the state of the world in 2009.
Then he looked around with a different purpose, searching for the magician he was due to deliver a few bars of Hershey's Chocolate to.
