Just Anime » what character do you think you match perfectly and why?

@takashichea: Are you sure? didn't say this thread was limited to just Fairy Tail characters and the thread title doesn't say that either. The anime forum seems fine to me, or it could be moved to General Discussion to include manga characters as well.

Fairy Tail » Is Natsu's relationship with Lucy going be like Haru and Elie's?

@sophie231: @takashichea: I'm a big Lucy x Natsu fan, but I think you guys may be forgetting that the last few episodes were filler, so the Lucy x Natsu moments weren't really canon, so they don't really count. I think it's just a little fan service for us.

It's nice to see new users here who like Fairy Tail, hope to see you here often!

Big Boobs » Why are breasts considered sexual?

@justanormalguy: The bellybutton thing is more to do with censorship in general (and maybe even society in general, I believe women used to cover up more than men) than it is do with which body parts are considered sexual. Not that stomachs can't be considered sexy, but that's besides the point.

I'm not saying breasts would get the same sort of attention that they do now if they hadn't been focused on by the media. Obviously they wouldn't. But extra attention or not, women have them and men don't. That alone is enough for men to find them curious and attractive, and that's without all the points I made before.

Big Boobs » Why are breasts considered sexual?

@VinceNotVance said:

I feel like an actual discussion of this would be interesting to take part in...if this was another forum. But because it's Anime Vice, that won't be happening.

Why not? There are plenty of users here who can discuss a topic like this without being immature about it. I think it would probably get spammed more on other forums to be honest.

they're distinctly a female characteristic

Exactly. The guy in the original post said how a man's bare chest isn't censored and how some men have breasts, which is missing the point entirely.

@justanormalguy said:

in Africa there have been cases where even men began lactating in order to feed their young when their mother died

Well that's something... to not think about. Ever. Now we know why men have nipples I guess?

Big Boobs » Why are breasts considered sexual?

@justanormalguy said:

I ask a simple question to you all... why? Why are breasts considered sexual?

Because women have them, and men are naturally attracted to women, so men find breasts attractive. Mystery solved!

I mean sure, marketing over-sexualizes breasts. But it's not marketing that made breasts sexy. They already were, otherwise the marketing wouldn't work as well as it does. Think about it, if they censored the bare arms of women would arms suddenly become super sexy? No. Everyone has arms, who cares.

If men had breasts then it wouldn't be a big deal, because then breasts wouldn't be feminine.

Lets flip it around to help prove my point a bit. As a general rule, women find muscular men attractive. Why? Because during puberty, boys get stronger, their muscle-mass increases. Probably because back when the human race was young, long before we got too smart for our own good, men were running around hunting and scavenging. We needed muscles for that, and they only developed those muscles further during hunting, scavenging and so on. Therefore, muscles are masculine. See what I'm getting at?

That's my theory anyway. Media doesn't make breasts sexy, it just promotes the fact that they are.

Off-Topic » So... about the BernamBraun buyout

Worrying won't get us anywhere guys. I'm sure Tom will let us know as soon as he knows something, or someone from BermanBraun will post something. Until then, just carry on as usual. Fill in our crazy wiki and post in the forums, the community here is what this site is primarily about.

@PenguinDust said:

I look to the community to fill in the gaps. This place feels comfortable to me. Now, I do think their is much room for improvement, but as long as it remains a welcome and supportive site, I plan to stick around.

Yeah, that's the right way to look at things. Things might be bumpy right now, but I plan on riding it out.

Off-Topic » What's Going Through you Mind Right Now?

Thinking about what kinds of figures to feature next week. Also kinda surprised at the lack of comments on Featured Figures #02, guess I just thought there were a lot more Yoko fans out there!

@Sonata: Dude I would totally watch that.

Fairy Tail » Best way to get?

@Sanryd: It's great to see more people getting into Fairy Tail. Right now it needs updating with new shows, but always check this thread for links to current anime, like Fairy Tail.

General Discussion » Future of AnimeVice (Screened Fate is decided)

I imagine they'll take it slow here and probably hire a few new freelancers and see how things pick up, that would be my guess. It sounds like they have the right idea with Screened, bringing new people on but not pushing any huge changes on the site too quickly. I'm sure BermanBraun has the power to do great things both with Screened and this site, it should be interesting to see how things go from here on out.

General Discussion » Bleach fans: What will you watch now?

I've been meaning to check Naruto out for a long time now, with Bleach reaching it's end I have even more reason to. I used to read the manga, but that was a couple of years ago now, I didn't get too far and I've forgotten most of what I read, so starting fresh will work out great. Biggest pro here is that I have mountains of content to get through, I won't have to wait for new episodes for a long time.

Dragon Ball » Do you agree with this DBZ strength list?

@MisterShin said:

1. SSJ Vegeta, SSJ Trunks & Piccolo are pretty much the same power level. However Piccolo does not have to transform to achieve the power. Piccolo would win in a fight IMO due to regen and such.

If you look at what I said, I said that even if you argue that Piccolo could beat Super Saiyan Trunks, Piccolo would still be destroyed by Ascended or Ultra Super Saiyan Trunks, so Trunks should be higher up on the list.

2. Gokus statement does not reflect reality.

Oh come on, Goku was ready to crush Piccolo Buu, they're both more than able to figure out who would win the fight by sensing each other's power level. If Goku said he would win and Buu didn't even try to fight, then I'm pretty sure that means Goku was stronger.

Also I'm sure he stated Gohan could beat him, I don't recall him saying 'I can beat you now '.

I remember Goku saying "You're not going to fight me like that are you?" or something along those lines, I'm pretty sure he didn't even mention Gohan.

Gotenks was playing around, he can beat Super Buu without a doubt.

I'm pretty sure Super Buu was the one playing around. Gotenks wasn't taking the fight as seriously as he could have, but he was still trying to win, and was failing. It wasn't until Gohan stepped in that Super Buu started getting a real beating.

@MisterShin said:

Goku stated that Gotenks was stronger than himself.

From what I remember, when Goku and the Supreme Kai saw Gotenks as a Super Saiyan 3, Goku was impressed at how Gotenks was using the form with such ease, but he never said Gotenks was more powerful. Maybe it's different in the manga or something.

@MisterShin said:

4. Fat Buu = Super Buu this is stated in the Manga, there is no reason to debate this one. You have it mixed up Fat Buu split into good & evil. I only ranked Super Buu high coz he can sense ki and has a better physic for combat, he has the exact same power level as Fat Buu. Fat Buu = Innocent Buu + Evil Buu Super Buu = Innocent Buu + Evil Buu

What? Okay, I need to see that part of the manga. From what they said in the anime, Evil Buu was created when Fat Buu got really mad/upset. He was created from all the smoke Fat Buu generated, so the Evil one was a new Buu, not half of the original Buu.

In other words, when Evil Buu then absorbed Fat Buu he then essentially had the power of two Buus. Otherwise, what's so "Super" about Super Buu? He's just a slimmer, more evil version of Fat Buu? ...that's dumb. It was clearly stated that Super Buu was way more powerful than Fat Buu.

Dragon Ball » Can most of the movies be dismissed as non-canon?

@MisterShin said:

History of trunks is an anime adaptation of the manga chapter. It cannot be canon because it already is in Manga form :P

What? That doesn't make any sense. Surely the manga version confirms that History of Trunks is canon. By your logic, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z can't be canon.

Dragon Ball » Do you agree with this DBZ strength list?

@MisterShin: Dude, what? There are three major things wrong with that list:

  • Future Trunks is way more powerful than Piccolo, probably as a regular Super Saiyan, but even if you argue against that Trunks is undeniably more powerful as an Ascended or Ultra Super Saiyan.
  • Goku was confident that he could easily defeat Piccolo Buu, so that Buu can't possibly be more powerful than Kid Buu.
  • Gotenks? More powerful than Goku and Kid Buu? He couldn't even beat Super Buu.

Also, Fat Buu is not equal to Super Buu in any way, Super Buu is a more powerful version of Buu, with Fat Buu absorbed on top of that. He has the power of two Buus.

Broly » Does Broly have a SSJ3?

I'm amazed so many of you are saying Super Saiyan 3 Broly is canon. Broly isn't canon at all. It doesn't matter how many damn video games he's been in. He's a movie character, not a canon character.

The only video game that's considered canon, as far as I know, is the MMO game which is set waaay into the future.

@ozeol: Kid Trunks is strong for his age, but on his own he's not even as strong as Piccolo, and Future Trunks is much stronger than Piccolo. In fact, now that I think about it... Kid Trunks and Goten aren't even as strong as the Androids. They should be at the bottom of the list.
