Voting results aren't any different since the last update. Unless a big turnout in favor of the opposition appears by tomorrow, I'll be starting up the next set of matches.

@Bigheart711: The fact you can't save unless you get to a save point. Can be really irritating if you have something to take care of right away or you lose your game data from a power outage just because you weren't at a save point soon enough.

Battles » Jirou vs Augus

@othus12: Except based off assumptions of Toriko top tiers, they're presently comparable to Cell saga level foes. Asura's Wrath characters, on the other hand, are capable of either competing with or slaughtering Buu saga level characters.

Battles » Jirou vs Augus

Just a question: how is Augus inferior to Jirou in attributes when the former could take blows from Asura and Asura's Wrath characters being considered comparable to Dragon Ball Z characters in attributes? I'd say the latter would be getting slaughtered at this point based off what I've dug up on Asura's Wrath.

Battles » Sasuke Uchiha vs Lord Raiden

What proof is there of Raiden being massively hypersonic considering many characters in the series are at superhuman level?

@takashichea: Elfen Lied's okay, though the show's attempts to dabble into ecchi and elements of harem during more mellow moments are mood killers. Gantz, on the other hand, isn't even worth looking into since you'll be lucky to find anyone in the series who isn't a complete scumbag as the series relishes in its gory violence and sexual content.

As for the current matches, Hotel Moscow run unopposed with 5 votes and Generation of Miracles lead 3-1.

@takashichea: If you can look past the rather chilling premise of the series where preadolescent girls are used as cyborg assassins for a government organization, the character drama and engaging action sequences are likely to hook you into the series. I recall Tom Pinchuk attempted watching the series, yet couldn't survive past the first episode.

Battles » Maakubouchi Ippo VS Ryu

Bad match for Ippo. Ryu has greater attributes and ranged attacks in his arsenal.

@machmans: If you think someone is trying to flame a thread, flag the comment or PM me or any other forum mods next time so we can take action whenever we get on here. Personally taking things into your own hands will make things more bad for you if things escalate in a thread.

Battles » Over The Limit!: AV Battle Community Vote Thread.

@SMXLR8: I seen your comments last night, but had no time to reply since I was about to call it a night. I'm not trying to be a hard-ass with moderating folks in the forum. However, there are occasions where folks can take debate in here too personally or people act like they are holier than thou and I only intervene to keep things from getting too heated or to cool off egos.

Battles » Over The Limit!: AV Battle Community Vote Thread.

@takashichea: The guy seems to have preconceived notions on how folks in the Battle forum judge things for matches, judging from the wanking comment). While I'm all for discussion on the capabilities of characters outside of anime/ manga, it shouldn't be done under any notions you would have of the forum as a whole since that would have folks assuming you are talking beneath them and potentially tick them off. There will always be differing points of view in a debate and that should be respected instead of directly attacking other users or the community as a whole for having differing thoughts than you on a topic of discussion.

That being said, I'm still keeping that thread locked. While it is okay to counter any claims made by others if you created said match as long as you are civil about it, it isn't right to directly attack the user under any conceived notions of said user or the community as a whole and acting as if you think you know more than everybody else.

Voting time is now up. All Jokers have won their match, but the second match is presently tied. This means I will decide the match outcome for myself in a tie breaker, which will go to the Hellsing Organization. All Jokers and Hellsing will face off in the next round. It is now time for the next set of matches.

Match #1

To the public of Italy, this group is a charitable organization tasked with rehabilitating critically injured children. In reality, it is a counter-terrorist military organization that turns young girls into cyborg assassins. Each of the cyborgs are paired with an adult agent called a handler in teams called fratellos and are required to obey the handler's orders at all times through a brainwashing process called conditioning. Relationships within fratellos tend to vary from the handler treating their cyborg as a human girl to being a tool of the trade. This is Gunslinger Girl's Social Welfare Agency.

Notable Members: Henrietta, Rico, Triela, Claes, Angelica, Petrushka, Beatrice, Elsa de Sica, Jose and Jean Croce, Victor Hilshire, Marco Toni, Raballo, Alessandro Ricci

And their opponents...

One of the most influential criminal groups in the crime-infested town of Ronapour, this group consists of a number of Russian soldiers who served in the Soviet military during the war in Afghanistan during the Cold War. Led by Balalaika, this group usually cross paths with Lagoon Company during their jobs and have ties to the Russian mafia. They have fierce loyalty to one another as such that the killing of any of their members will lead to the most brutal and merciless death imaginable for any who cross them. This is Black Lagoon's Hotel Moscow.

Notable Members: Balalaika, Boris

Match #2

This American football team is formed to represent the Deimon Private Senior High School. While formed with three members at first, they gain more members as the team's goal is to gain enough victories to compete for their country's most important high school football championship, the Christmas Bowl. Their team chant is “Kill' em! YA-HA!” This is Eyeshield 21's Deimon Devil Bats.

Notable Members: Sena Kobayakawa, Yoichi Hiruma, Ryokan Kurita, Taro Raimon, The Ha-Ha Brothers, Manabu Yukimitsu, Dakichi Komusubi, Tetsuo Ishimaru, Yohei Satake, Kenta Tamaoka, Futoshi Omosadake, Natsuhiko Taki, Gen Takekura, Akira Nakabou, Mamori Anezaki, Doburoku Sakaki, Suzuna Taki

And their opponents:

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

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

Dragon Ball Z » Who is the Most useless DBZ char, Chiaotzu or Videl?

Videl. Chaozu at least more abilities in his arsenal as a fighter, despite his rather horrible battle record after the 22nd Budokai. On the other hand, Videl's strictly a melee fighter.

Just Anime » Explaining things about my teaser (and even better good news)...

If any of you have checked my status, you may have noticed that I've got a teaser posted on something I plan to do next week. I'm here to spill the beans on those plans.

I plan to resume Ani-Crap in some form, though some developments in my Internet situation that I've come to learn of recently could make things even better on this end. I've learned that I can get cable out where I am, as such where I can get a 50 Mbps uncapped connection. Originally, I was planning to only have Ani-Crap once a month to help conserve on data usage on my end due to my small usage cap. But with the big development in my Internet situation, this changes things quite a bit. Not only can I fully resume Ani-Crap to how it was back in April, but this opens the doors for me to expand on what titles I can choose to cover for it since I had to originally limit what I'd watch up to 13 TV episodes due to my cap. This means now if I chose to, I could include longer crappy titles like SD Gundam Force, Dragon Ball GT or Dragonaut without having to regularly keep tabs on my data usage. I'm still presently trying to get things situated with the Internet, so these big changes won't kick in just yet. But still, Ani-Crap will be back next week. I will include the first poll I've posted in several months on here next Friday for folks to decide on.

For those not aware of this feature I frequently contribute to Vice, here is more info on it via my profile...

This is the feature to Anime Vice you'll see me frequently cover in blog postings. Having seen plenty of great quality anime titles over the past decade, I thought I would take a dip into anime's more infamous offerings in terms of bad quality. For as overrated or horrible you may think of popular titles like the Holy Shounen Trinity or moeblob titles, the titles I normally dig into for Ani-Crap cover some of the worst titles you would see from the medium we all love, past and present. A good number of the titles I cover include ultra-violent OVAs, ecchi titles, bad adaptations of video games and some duds done in the past by notable figures in anime.

Most of the time, my reviews are decided via a two-week poll I post in a thread on the Just Anime forum of a list of ten titles (five a piece from anything done within or beyond the past ten years) that Vice members are allowed to vote on. Whichever title receives the most votes within that two week period will be what I choose to cover for my next review.

Anyway, feel free to comment and Ani-Crap shall resume next week.

Battles » Kirei Kotomine vs Deadpool

Even with Deadpool's supposed skill with knives and swords Kotomine has shown the same, specifically with the black keys

As I explained above, the Black Keys are only meant to be used as throwing weapons. The blades on them are too unwieldly to be used in a close-ranged/ melee scenario.

Let's not also forget that Deadpool has a more extensive skill set with martial arts and weapons. What is Kirei skilled in for combat beyond his Bajiquan and use of the Black Keys?

@machmans: After looking over the thread, I say it stays locked since things got too heated with you lashing out against several folks who disagreed with you and even having the nerve to bash the whole forum. Act up again and you'll be temp-banned.

Battles » Kirei Kotomine vs Deadpool

@CerusSerenade:

"Black keys prevent regen, even if he is immortal."

Have proof that this would effect non-supernatural beings or those linked to a cosmic entity?

"regular bullets won't kill him, even if Deadpool did manage to successfully shoot him."

Kirei's armor can hold up to small-caliber firearms, but would be problematic against high-caliber weapons which Wade would have on him in the form of assault rifles or high-caliber machine guns. The armor would also be quite vulnerable to bladed weapons like knives and swords, the latter of which Deadpool also has on him.

Bumping up. All Jokers lead 6-1 and Vongola narrowly lead 4-3. With voting close for the second match, I'll let voting continue into tomorrow to see if anymore folks turn out to affect the match outcome.

Battles » Kirei Kotomine vs Deadpool

"Base Kirei is at least supersonic, given how he was capable of outmaching Kiritsugu with Double Accel."

Call bollocks on that claim. While Kirei's speed is faster than what any peak human could hope to accomplish, he isn't fast enough to evade a fired bullet as he relies on aim-dodging to outpace any gunfire aimed at him.
