Battles » Rogue(Marvel Comics)VS Azula(Avatar: The Last Airbender)

@Destinyheroknight: ?

*sees OP*

Da hell? Unless Rogue has Ms. Marvel's powers, she is utterly screwed. Azula could likely reduce the force of her fall via using firebending to give herself thrust to slow the descent of her fall.

Battles » LSSJ Broly Vs Mystic Gohan

See the old debate's stirring up again on the "galaxy busting" feat.

I see Mystic Gohan prevailing in this match with difficulty. While I don't buy the galaxy-busting claim with Broly, I still find him to be ridiculously powerful in the movies, enough so where PIS had to come into play just so Goku and pals could off him.

Battles » Rogue(Marvel Comics)VS Azula(Avatar: The Last Airbender)

What version of Rogue are we using specifically?

If she has Ms. Marvel and/ or Sunspot's abilities, she stomps. Otherwise, Azula's likely to take the match with difficulty so long as she doesn't get tempted to engage in melee/ close quarters combat.

Just Anime » Oldest Anime Titles You've Seen

Just something I'm curious about with folks. List off the oldest anime titles you've seen (top 5 or 10). To start things off, here are my top 5 oldest titles I've seen:

1. Osu and Tales of a Street Corner (both released on 11/5/1962)

2. Mermaid and Memory (both released on 9/21/1964)

3. Shizuku (10/1/1965)

4. Pictures at an Exhibition (11/11/1966)

5. Hols: Prince of the Sun (7/21/1968)

To those curious, the majority of titles on this list were experimental shorts that Osamu Tezuka created at points in the 1960s that I have in a collection of Tezuka shorts that were released onto DVD and Hols is notable for being the first major animated film that future Studio Ghibli founders Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki were involved in production on.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Oreimo Discussion

@takashichea: I did a review on it a while back here on Vice. See for yourself.

I will warn you though that the series won't be for everyone considering how controversial the topic of incest is.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Oreimo Discussion

@takashichea: I don't necessarily have issue with taboo relationships like incest being done in fictions. But they do have to be portrayed believably and in good taste (Koi Kaze being a good example of these rules), the former not applying well with the developments in Oreimo.

As for cousin relationships, attitudes and laws towards them tend to vary by country with some Western countries (like the U.S.) not condoning them yet are legal depending on territory and conditions, while others like Japan, Russia and the Middle East have no issue with them and even condone first cousin marriages. It's why you see some anime titles like Fruits Basket or Kanon develop cousin relationships with others not taking issue to it.

Recent medical research has shown that consummating between cousins have a very low chance (about 3%) of producing genetic defects for offspring in comparison to siblings or those of other close relations. But even with the research, cousin relationships are still treated as a sort of social stigma in some Western countries due to perceived societal roles that many assume exist with familial relationships.

Then again, agree that the ending to this made little sense.

Battles » Illyasviel Von Einzbern vs Emiya Shirou

@CerusSerenade: Fehafare has a point. It's silly to assume characters from different continuities in an anime franchise have the same scope of attributes and abilities as they would from a title that is a spinoff from the main continuity.

Take for instance, Tenchi Muyo. The OVA is considered ridiculously powerful with male lead Tenchi Masaki being above everything in the series, including the multiverse's creators who are among his harem. For spinoffs like Tenchi Universe and Tenchi in Tokyo though, the kid and all the girls are nowhere as overpowered as they were in the OVAs.

Even the Gundam franchise has differing levels of attributes that come about with the pilots and mecha with spinoff titles having Gundams and pilots, on occasions, greatly surpassing the attributes and abilities found in the UC continuity of the franchise.

If the spinoffs run on different mechanics for battles, you can't just assume that characters will retain the same level of attributes as they did from the main continuity.

Battles » King Piccolo vs Hiei and Kurama

Hard to believe I'm agreeing on Aamir on something, but this is such a rare case.

Roshi's moonbusting in the early episodes of DB has been acknowledged by many as an outlier since it doesn't match up to the potency of many weaker showings in destructive scope shown throughout the rest of the series. For instance even while it's a city-busting attack, Piccolo Daimao's Demon Destructive Wave can't be spammed as several uses of the attack eventually led him to be exhausted. And even at the end of the series, we only seen Goku and Piccolo Jr. busting islands at most in their final fight with one another.

That being said, either Hiei or Kurama could easily solo in this match thanks to their superior stats by EoS.

Battles » Sentry & Captain Marvel VS Goku & Vegeta

Sentry sun dumps the Saiyans and solos. :P

All kidding aside, Vegeta's likely to get dispatched quickly as he's greatly surpassed in stats by Sentry. From what I've heard about about Goku's new Super Saiyan God form, he's likely to drag the battle out since he'll have the power to compete with Sentry for a time. But between the man's high durability and ridiculous regenerative rates (able to regenerate from nothing), Goku's not gonna have a means to permanently dispatch Sentry and will be a matter of time before the Saiyan also falls. The battle will be a flat-out slaughter if the Void takes control of Sentry's body and unleashes his tendrils.

Bumping this up. Other than a vote in for Rurouni Kenshin: New Kyoto Arc, no other activity has occurred since the last update. Unless any major voting turnout occurs by the time I'm home tomorrow afternoon from work, I'll end voting early and start up on current poll leader Dark Blue.
