Manu and 360 throw defense

Dear Forum,

 

here’s one for you..

 

Manu has a 360 LoS as he’s aware, would he be able to throw defense behind him? I’m asking as our group has 2 schools of thought on this. Rules say: that a model has to be moved within LoS when the throw attack/defense is successful, so unless a model is intangible, technically Manus own body would block the throw.

 

the other school of thought is that Manu would basically pick his poor victim up and just throw him wherever he pleases and that’s why he has awareness and throw defense, to represent a big buto just picking people up and throwing them places...

 

what do do you think?

We've been playing him like your 2nd description so far, he picks his opponent up and throw him wherever he pleases

Manu's volume would block the movement.  With a 2" move you wouldn't clear his base if you were able to go over it.

You can throw the attacker to a place behind manu as long as the movement doesn't cross manu's base.  

The reason he has Aware is so he can Bodyguard all around by the way.  Oyabun like to hide behind him.
