Battles » Hidan Vs. King Bradley

@TheNobody: Unless there is some sort of obstruction that blocks Bradley's Ultimate Eye, he should be able to anticipate any surprise attacks coming from Hidan considering both have no knowledge of the other's abilities in this match. If he becomes aware of Hidan's immortality, then he could alter his tactics to dismemberment of his foe since Hidan lacks regenerative abilities.
 
Perhaps the major flaw with Hidan for this match though, besides inferior speed, would be his style of fighting. His triple-bladed scythe isn't made to inflict fatal wounds as it only makes external wounds to make his foe bleed and aid him in the preparation of his ritual, which takes enough time to set up. While it might be possible to kill a foe with enough attacks delivered  from the scythe, this would be extremely difficult for Hidan to pull off against Bradley thanks to his speed and precog. And I can't picture Hidan having any time in this match to prepare his ritual since Bradley is more than willing to kill any foe who crosses him in character.

Battles » Hidan Vs. King Bradley

Giving this to Bradley. Hidan isn't exactly that impressive in the speed department as mid-tier ninja like Asuma and Shikamaru were capable of keeping up with his attacks. Against a foe like Bradley who is known for his impressive speed and precog via the Ultimate Eye, Hidan would be at a great disadvantage in this match.

Battles » Iskander (Fate/Zero) VS Letzte Bataillon (Hellsing)

While I know you think this would seem like a cool idea for a battle, the vampire army would sadly be massacred in this battle. The Letzte Bataillon's weapons consist entirely of ordinary World War II era firearms and such conventional weapons would be incapable of harming a Heroic Spirit, which includes Iskander and the soldiers he summons through Ionioi Hetairoi. Worst of all, the weapons each soldier in Iskander's armies have are conceptual weapons capable of killing Servants, as shown when they were able to easily slaughter the 70+ forms of Assassin that attempted to kill Iskander in battle. This means that the regenerative abilities given to the Nazi vampires wouldn't help them in this match if any vital areas were struck.

General Discussion » What expert are you?

For battle threads: Tenchi Muyo, Nasuverse (not up to willyvereb's level, but getting there), Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Ball, Naruto, Avatar, Fullmetal Alchemist, Street Fighter
 
Anime in general: Being a fan of anime for over ten years now, I've been tackling plenty of popular and obscure franchises of diverse genres where I become familiar with both the storyline mythos to any title I come across and even the behind the scenes aspects of said titles in a number of instances. Examples of titles I have become very familiar with knowledge-wise include anything from Studio Ghibli, Gundam, Macross, Tenchi Muyo, works from Gonzo and anything made by CLAMP.  I've recently started taking up interest in looking into some older titles, particularly the Lupin the 3rd TV titles from the 1970s and works from famous artist Leiji Matsumoto like Captain Harlock. Considering I have yet to run into a bottom for what titles pique my interest, I imagine I'll be glued into anime for quite a while.

Battles » Kambei (Samurai7) vs Kenshin

Bad, bad matchup. Kanbei's been shown to cut through groups of giant mechs and his reaction time's impressive enough where he can deflect incoming lasers. Kenshin can't compete with those kinds of feats.

Bumping yet again. A week left to go on voting for what older dud you want me to watch and review.

Battles » Pain vs Tobi

Going up against Pein before gaining Rinnegan might be a bit too much for Tobi. While he could drag the fight out with intangibility via his space-time migration, Tobi can only hold it for up to five minutes at a time and needs to go tangible to attack. Not to mention with the overwhelming amount of power that the Six Paths of Pein can unleash, Tobi's only chance of victory is to warp the Peins away as GIRUGAMESH discussed and that would be very difficult to pull off.

Battles » Sora vs Shimada Kanbei (Read OP)

This is gonna be a straight-up clash between swordsmen to see who is the best between Kingdom Hearts' titular character and the experienced swordsman from Samurai 7. Some rules to note:
 
-Battle is fought to the death or until foe is completely incapacitated.
-Sora's stats are at KH2 level.
-With this being a fight only with weapons, Sora is barred from flight, using magic, casting summons and firing any laser attacks from his Keyblade. 
-Battle will be fought in the Keyblade Graveyard with both men 40 yards apart from one another.
 
With these conditions, who do you think would win this match?

Just Anime » Need Some Old School Ani-Crap (What dud of an older anime title should I watch?)

Bumping up again. One and a half weeks left to go in voting. Guess I shouldn't be too surprised with the lower voter turnout since the poll has older and possibly unfamiliar titles for many folks.
 
I'm actually getting tempted to want to try making this into a monthly routine where I stick to the same format I've been doing (five recent duds and five older duds) to get votes like my previous polls. If you want me to do this on a monthly basis, feel free to post your thoughts. If enough folks want me to do this more frequently, then I'll be more than happy to do so.

Battles » Yukishiro Enishi(Rurouni Kenshin) VS Kyuzo(Samurai Seven)

Definitely going with Kyuzo. Anyone who can casually hack apart a small group of giant mecha would have no problem taking out anyone in Rurouni Kenshin.

Battles » Sora vs Rurouni Kenshin

Sora's too damn powerful for Kenshin to even handle. Take one swordsman who can cut through solid steel versus another who not only can hack apart buildings with his "sword", but can also fly, has various magic spells at his disposal, some of which are quite broken in effects (Stop, Magnet and Reflect), and is at least hypersonic in speed shown through his various encounters against Organization XIII and other Nobodies. There's too much difference in the abilities and stats between the two.

Battles » Frieza Vs Naruto.

Even if barred from planet busting, Frieza in first form still has far superior stats compared to Naruto. This isn't a match! This is a slaughter with Naruto as the victim.

Battles » Broly LSSJ vs. Goku USSJ

@SpeedForceSpider: I know that much. It's no different from anime like Inuyasha and Naruto that churn out such movies to grab a quick buck from fans of the franchises.

Battles » Broly LSSJ vs. Goku USSJ

@eddz99: You're joking, right? Gohan was clearly shown in movie 8 going SSJ when he attempted and failed to stop Broly. Gohan never knew how to transform until long after the Z Fighters got their asses handed to them by 17 and 18 thus the movie's strongly implied to have taken place sometime in the two week window before the start of the Cell Games.

Battles » Broly LSSJ vs. Goku USSJ

@eddz99: Okay, but Goku is still screwed in this match. If he got decked as a FPSSJ when he fought Broly, I don't see how the outcome would be much different if you tweak aspects of him as a USSJ.
