Battles » Naruto(without demon) vs. Jiraiya

Without Kurama, Naruto still carries the large chakra reserves of his family from being Minato Namikaze's son. He would be nowhere as overpowered as he would be during the Shinobi War, but still powerful enough to pose a threat to most shinobi thanks to Sage Mode, Shadow Clones and Rasengan variants.

Still that being said, I'd likely give this match to Jiraiya after a difficult match. The Sannin has more battle experience and a more diverse arsenal of jutsu he could rely upon in various battle scenarios, which more than make up for his imperfect version of Sage Mode. While Naruto is surprisingly crafty in battle with what limited jutsu he knows, his limited arsenal still makes him predictable in battle to those familiar with his style of fighting, which Jiraiya would know very well from having trained the boy between the timeskip. Rasenshuriken would pose the biggest threat to Jiraiya as its speed and destructive ability (while Naruto is in Sage Mode) would be more than capable of dispatching the Toad Sage. But six times out of ten, I'd favor Jiraiya winning here.

Battles » Reed Richards vs. Monkey D. Luffy

With prep in Reed's favor, Luffy's screwed here.

Off-Topic » What ever happened to covering User Reviews?

I'm aware the Videos section is a lost cause since Vice doesn't have full-time staff to post anything for it.

But the reviews section should at least be salvageable. I'll try seeing if I can chip in reviews for any titles I'm able to complete if they have a wiki entry here on the site so there is at least some activity brewing in it.

Off-Topic » We need more people in this "section"!

I plan to resume Ani-Crap Review again in a few weeks. However, I'm likely gonna be on my last legs for full-blown anime viewing pretty soon and my next run of Ani-Crap will very likely be my final one. It's getting harder for me to find anything of good quality since outside of some exceptions, the anime industry's been playing things too safe with what they offer in recent years and I've creamed through enough memorable past offerings that I could dig up. Plus, it's getting harder for me to work up the motivation to put anything together here on Vice since many parts of the site either don't get much activity as they used to (Battles forum gets more activity than most sections on the site and even I'm getting to my limits dealing with some of the people that visit it) or have been left dead for at least a couple years now.

Off-Topic » What ever happened to covering User Reviews?

This is something I've been pondering for a while in light of my recent User Review I did on Future Diary. A while back, the home page for Vice would regularly track recent reviews done by members here on the site, which provided some encouragement for folks to post their own thoughts on any anime they seen recently. However, this feature on the home page was taken down during one of Vice's revampings and now the section is left mostly abandoned with only a small number of reviews posted each month.

Sure it's nice to highlight user contributions in the wiki and blogging. But what about covering user reviews as well to give the section some exposure and keep it from rotting like the Videos section has been?

Battles » JLU Gold Amazo Vs Super Android 17

Amazo wins with little effort. Hax and DBZ/ GT don't mix very well (one having little notable defense against the other).

Battles » Super Buu vs Doomsday

@Platinum_94: I mean absorbing Buu's abilities to turn people into food and what not. If Doomsday makes physical contact with a foe, he can absorb their powers. And his reactive evolution would likely help him undo the effects of Buu's Candy Beam and make him immune to its effects if struck by it a second time, considering Darkseid's Omega Beams have similar ability to transmute the form of its target.

Battles » Super Buu vs Doomsday

And another one comes yammering in...

@Platinum_94:

Doomsday has no way to beat buu, Physical punches won't do nothing to Buu

Doomsday has the ability to copy the abilities of others. Buu's abilities would be taken by Doomsday and then he'll be eating his own attacks. Next...

Not to mention he has taken planet level or higher level blows and even show any effect towards it

Heavy blows and ki attacks from Vegito were shown to cripple Buu badly and even cause his regeneration to start slowing down badly during their battle. And outside of ki attacks, no DBZ character before Battle of Gods can bust a planet via physical blows.

Buu would absorb him or turn him into a candy or egg. Most likely a egg and crush him like he did to chi chi

And again, reactive evolution and regeneration from Doomsday would render these methods pointless.

Battles » Super Buu vs Doomsday

@DBZ_universe:

Actually the reason to that was Vegito's monstrous KI that allow him to move as a candy. Doomsday has no KI so I don't see him moving as a candy at all.

Where are you getting this idea? The whole scene seemed to be treated like slapstick considering there was no logic showing how Vegito could move around and the scene not being taken as seriously compared to other points in Vegito's curbstomp of a battle with Buu.

@ROBOT6661:

DD has never adapted from being turn to an object without life nor adapted from being absorbed even the times he adapts he doesn't do it instantly

While it's true that Doomsday's adaptive abilities don't kick in immediately after being struck by an attack, Buu's absorption and Candy Beam abilities are just as likely to be rendered worthless by Doomsday's adaptive evolution considering it could hold up against Darkseid's Omega Beams, which are capable of various effects like teleporting targets, transmutation, extracting the soul of his target(s), sending them through time (as Batman experienced) or wiping them out from existence.

DD adaptive powers works like this if DD is having trouble with heat he will adapt in a couple of moments to be inmune to that heat but if the heat is so high that it could erase him in no time he wouldn't adapt to it in the same way

True. But I fail to see how this is relevant for the battle.

DD is slower than Buu he also has no way of killing Buu, what is he gonna do to kill him? punch him LMAO

This argument again? -_-

Again, Doomsday has tagged speedy superheroes like Supes and Martian Manhunter who are capable of FTL speeds. Buu's not gonna be capable of outspeeding him.

Buu wins anyone who says otherwise is underestimating buu or wanking DD

I'd say the other way around in the case of anyone like you or flamesaber.

Battles » Super Buu vs Doomsday

@flamesaber: Frieza planet-busts through destroying a planet's core. Buu does it purely through the power of his ki attacks. Other than the higher ki output allowing one to destroy a planet easier in DBZ, fail to see any great difference in destructive scope.

And quit it with the Imperiex/ Buu comparisons.

Battles » Majin Vegeta vs Hirudegarn

Hireudegarn, rather easily. He could easily thrash Mystic Gohan and SSJ3 Gotenks when he was revived. So fail to see how Vegeta would be capable of taking him down.

The SSJ3 Goku victory was a fluke from bad writing and the movie's makers wanting an excuse to show off Goku's Dragon Fist.

Battles » Super Buu vs Doomsday

@flamesaber: A serious Supes can easily destroy planets with physical blows and Doomsday has been shown to trade blows with the Man of Steel on many occasions. If Doomsday can handle planet-busting blows from Supes, then what makes you think ki blasts from Buu would do the job?

Battles » Super Buu vs Doomsday

@flamesaber: I do. Apparently you don't. -_-

Especially if you would know that Imperiex has been shown to destroy galaxies while the best Buu has been shown to pull off is busting planets. Using the former as an example to show Buu can beat Doomsday is rather foolish.

Battles » Super Buu vs Doomsday

@flamesaber: Umm, no. His reactive evolution also takes effect when he suffers damage from an attack. Some examples:

-Supes tries using a sonic gun to paralyze Doomsday. His auditory canals close up in reaction to the weapon after a prolonged period of time.

-When dealing with energy attacks from a being of energy called Radiant, Doomsday's body generated a highly powerful aura of energy to counteract Radiant and grant him the capability to harm him.

-When fighting with Martian Manhunter, he developed the ability to spew fire (Manhunter's weakness) from his mouth.

Learn to do some research before you assume you know what you are in for. -_-

Also, Imperiex is significantly more powerful than Buu considering it required teams of superheroes and alliances with enemies to deal with the threat. Comparing Buu to Imperiex is laughable.

Battles » Super Buu vs Doomsday

No one in DBZ's killing him, that's for sure. You'd need either significantly greater attributes than Doomsday or a good enough level of hax to get around his adaptive evolution abilities, which are capable of adapting to enemy abilities on the fly.
