This battle was relatively short, however it was clearly a surprise in its quality both to me and the crowd. Temari being eager to battle unlike Shikamaru who’s lazy and dismissive. He seems to be a bit of a misogynist, claiming that his only motivation is not to lose to “a girl”. As Temari attacks with her fan, he flees gaining cover into the trees.
Temari annoyed uses her “kamaitachi” , Shikamaru uses his “Shadow bind”. Temari is force to avoid his technique, and marks it’s length in the ground. Both Temari and Shikamaru show of their intellectual abilities, building strategies to defeat on another. Ultimately, Shikamaru wins this with his superior strategy surprising everyone.

Luffy runs out of his Gear 2, Lucci gains advantage over Luffy. Luffy decides to use his “Gear 3” and explains that “Gear 3 is different from Gear 2 because instead of pumping blood through his body faster, he is blowing air through his bones, inflating them”.
