#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Fate/Stay Night 2014 Discussion

@LHWKnight: The ability for Ilya to use her mother's alchemy appears to be an anime-only addition. Beyond having an unlimited supply of mana and having the Mystic Eyes of Binding (a cripple spell cast through eye contact), Ilya never demonstrated any use of spells for combative scenarios in the visual novel.

General Discussion » Official Anime/ Manga Teams/ Organizations Voting Tourney Thread

Voting time is up. Straw Hats and the Gotei 13 are the last to advance to the Quarter-Finals, which will begin right now.

Match #1

In a post-apocalyptic future where humanity live underground in fear of the mutant beings called Beastmen, a human resistance movement is formed to combat the Beastmen threat. Led by the hot-blooded young man Kamina, this team is known to steal the Beastmen's personal mecha, Gunmen, for their personal use and for relying on reckless tactics in the heat of battle. The team would also reform years later to combat the threat of the alien being known as the Anti-Spiral. This is Gurren Lagann's Dai-Gurren Brigade.

Notable Members: Simon, Kamina, Yoko Littner, Nia, Boota, Rossiu Adai, Kittan Bachika, Leeron Littner, Dayakka Littner, Gimmy and Darry Adai, Bachika Sisters

And their opponents...

This group consists of the ten strongest Arrancar created through Sousuke Aizen's use of the Hogyoku. Organized within the large fortress in Hueco Mundo called Las Noches, each member has a number tattooed on their bodies designating their status within their group with their power and influence allowing them control of other Arrancar within Aizen's ranks in the fortress. Their power is enough of a threat that they give members of the Gotei 13 a good deal of difficulty in their efforts to apprehend Aizen and reclaim the Hogyoku from him. This is Bleach's Espada.

Notable Members: Yammy Llargo, Coyote Starrk, Lilynete Gingerbuck, Baraggan Louisenbairn, Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, Tier Harribel, Ulquiorra Cifer, Nnoitra Gilga, Luppi Antenor, Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, Zommari Rureaux, Szayelaporro Granz, Aaroniero Arruruerie

Match #2

This all-star basketball team from Teiko Junior High consisted of the five best players within the school. Their team won their junior high school Nationals for all three years of their time in junior high and have exceptional talent as such where they are considered “monsters” by those who play against them. All five players have split up to five different high schools where they all are able to rival one another in skill and physical capabilities if the teams they play for face one another. This is Kuroko no Basket's Generation of Miracles.

Notable Members: Ryota Kise, Shintaro Midorima, Daiki Aomine, Atsushi Murasakibara, Seijuro Akashi

And their opponents...

Led by one of the powerful Disciples known as Midora, this criminal organization seeks to gather rare ingredients to further their own goals by any means necessary, seeking to dominate the world by controlling all the world's ingredients. Members of this organization are infused with Gourmet Cells, cells harvested by a Gourmet Jellyfish that grant regenerative abilities and highly enhanced superhuman attributes, and have bases located among both the Human and Gourmet Worlds. To increase the power of their Gourmet Cells, this organization is known to abduct skilled cooks and force them into preparing any stolen ingredients they wish to consume. This is Toriko's Bishokukai.

Notable Members: Midora, Alfaro, Limon, Starjun, Grinpatch, Yuu, Jerry Boy, Barrygamon, Bogie Woods, Cedre, Beim Zyper, Dohsa, Chiyo, Ootake, Bile, Mamymaron, Faram

Voting will end on either Monday or Tuesday. Have fun voting!

Battles » Nightcrawler vs Shirai Kuroko

@CosmicKnight75: The whole point of me setting up the battle conditions as they are are because the two don't normally fight to kill. Both have their own advantages for battle as Kuroko is capable of teleporting objects away (something Nightcrawler can't do) which she can exploit with the environment if given the chance and Nightcrawler's mutation allows him to stick to walls, blend into dark areas and possess peak human levels of speed and agility.

Battles » Nightcrawler vs Shirai Kuroko

It's a battle between fellow teleporters. Can the X-Man dispatch the member of Academy City's Judgment?

Battle Conditions:

  • Earth-616 version of Nightcrawler is being used and comes into battle unarmed.
  • Kuroko has her darts on her.
  • Battle takes place in an abandoned Academy City with both foes 10 yards apart from one another.
  • Battle will be fought until the opponent is incapacitated.
  • Nightcrawler will have no qualms with harming Kuroko here and he is fully aware of the city's surroundings.
  • Both have general knowledge of their foe's abilities, but get no prep.

With the conditions set, who do you think wins this?

Battles » Misaka Mikoto runs the Thunder Gauntlet

@CosmicKnight75: I won't dispute Mikoto owning Zatch and Enel in terms of electrical abilities (though that scan of Zatch's strongest attack now has me thinking Mikoto's getting massacred). But beyond reflexes and combat speed, she is still a glass cannon as many of her physical attributes are normal human levels. If Enel and Zatch land a clean physical blow on her, then Mikoto would be done.

Battles » Misaka Mikoto runs the Thunder Gauntlet


From what I do know... 
 
Hei- He's screwed.  
  
Enel and Zatch- If they resort to physical attacks, Mikoto's screwed. If they resort to electrical attacks, Mikoto has the match in the bag due to greater voltage and versatility of her powers. 

Tengu Brunch- Toriko character? She's screwed.

Battles » Hiei vs Sasuke Uchiha

Hmmm. Hiei's likely to be unaffected by most genjutsu since the Jagan grants him a great deal of resistance to mental attacks and being a fire demon also grants him resistance to fire attacks, thus shutting down a decent chunk of Sasuke's arsenal. Both are about on par with one another in attributes, but I'd give Hiei the slight advantage here thanks to his resistance to a number of attacks in Sasuke's arsenal.

Come to think about it, high/ top tiers in Naruto would be a good match for Three Kings saga level characters in YYH, so long as some of the hax of Naruto such as Truth-Seeking Balls, Infinite Tsukuyomi and Kamui don't come into play.

Battles » Joke Battle: Black Star vs Naruto (Pre-Timeskip)

A couple of obnoxious young warriors who don't know when to shut up get locked up in a 10 ft x 10 ft room together. The whole room is made out of pure adamantium, thus they won't be breaking out. First one to break down mentally from their foe's utter annoyance loses the match. Whose annoyance will prevail here?

Just Anime » Ani-Crap Poll #46

Adding on to my news from Friday, here is what information I know of right now regarding the status of my Internet:

  • Currently, my account is not in Verizon's systems. On the one hand, my data usage isn't being monitored so I could get away with going over my monthly cap to a degree so long as I don't abuse it. On the other hand, I'd be screwed if any connection issues come up with the hotspot as there is no customer support I can contact presently to assess the situation.
  • My account is at least good for the remainder of the month. I'm paid off for October and shouldn't have any possible interruption to my Internet until then.
  • For right now, I am in a "wait and see" mode over receiving contact with Verizon as I am supposed to be getting contacted by them over possible plans moving forward. If I don't receive any contact from them by next weekend, then I will be looking into getting a new Internet plan since there is still a good deal of uncertainty over what will happen with my Internet if this transition drags into November.

I'll keep you guys informed over what happens with my current predicament.
