New month means new poll. Here are the ten titles you get to choose from for me to possibly rip apart:

  1. Senki Zessho Symphogear

Just Anime » Ani-Crap Poll: For a special double-header month in October, should I cover High School of the Dead after my regular poll?

Voting time is up. Despite some rather surprising opposition I didn't expect, most votes are in favor of me covering High School of the Dead. So I guess I'll be buying it to "indulge" in for Ani-Crap later this month.

Still haven't gotten much action for the current pair of matches, so I guess I'll end things now. Band of the Hawk and Seven Ghosts will advance to the next round. Time for the next set of matches:

Match #1

Desiring to become King of the Pirates, Monkey D. Luffy put together his own pirate crew consisting of a number of bizarre and oddball members that he picks up throughout his journey aboard the Going Merry and later the Thousand Sunny. While small in number compared to other pirate crews, the group put together by Luffy mostly consist of powerful fighters with several Devil Fruit users among their crew and having been capable of defeating a wide number of rival pirate crews and those among the military. Because of their feats throughout their journey, the crew fetch a very high bounty of over 800 million Bellies to whomever can apprehend the entire crew. This is One Piece's Straw Hat Pirates.

Notable Members: Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Tony Tony Chopper, Nico Robin, Franky, Brook

And their opponents...

This order of knights in the kingdom of Liones are a group of seven brutal criminals convicted of heinous crimes and who have the symbols of seven beasts carved into their bodies. Once known as the strongest knights within Liones, they were framed for the murder of the Great Holy Knight Zaratras and branded as traitors, thus leading the group to disband. Six of the seven members reunite years later to aid the princess of Liones, Elizabeth, to liberate her kingdom from the oppressive rule of the Holy Knights. This is the titular group of Seven Deadly Sins, the Seven Deadly Sins.

Notable Members: Meliodas, Diane, Ban, King, Gowther, Merlin, Escanor

Match #2

Coming together during the events of the Saiyan saga, this group of Earth's strongest warriors formed together to protect the Earth from evil threats and protect the Dragon Balls from having their power exploited for evil purposes. The group has gone through various member changes throughout the years it has formed and consists of former enemies and powerful alien fighters, yet are united in their goals of overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds against powerful enemy threats. This is Dragon Ball Z's Z Fighters.

Notable Members: Goku, Piccolo, Vegeta, Gohan, Krillin, Tien Shinhan, Chiaotzu, Yamcha, Yajirobe, Future Trunks, Trunks, Goten, Android 18, Majin Buu, Uub, Pan

And their opponents...

Led by Jotaro Kujo, this group consists of a number of fighters capable of wielding Stands, psychic beings given physical form by their wielders that have various supernatural powers. The group travel the world confronting enemy Stand users as they try to save Jotaro's mother from his grandfather's resurrected arch-nemesis, Dio Brando. This is Jojo's Bizarre Adventures' Stardust Crusaders.

Notable Members: Jotaro Kujo, Holy Kujo, Joseph Joestar, Muhammad Advol, Noriaki Kakyoin, Jean Pierre Polnareff

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

Battles » List of Banned Characters in the Battle Threads

While I do get godlike and toonforcing characters nominated for banning, I haven't seen very many instances of characters with little to no feats being put up for nomination for the Headache section of the ban list. If there are any characters you can think of that have little in the way of feats, feel free to suggest them and I'll judge if they will be worth adding to the Headache section of the ban list.

Due to having little feats, I've banned the Void personality of Shiki Ryougi from Kara no Kyoukai and added her to the Headache section.

Battles » Shiki Ryougi vs Shiki Tohno

@EVA_01: We don't know for certain what kind of capabilities Void Shiki has beyond the fact her MEoDP would be more potent than in her normal state and Nasu saying that she could fight a defensive battle at best against Servants. And unless there are contradictory statements and feats from the author or within a series, the author's word is the absolute word you would have to go by with addressing character capabilities.

And now that I think about it, Void Shiki's lack of feats may make her ban worthy for the Headache section of the Ban List.

Battles » Kaguya vs. Akatsuki

Seeing as this match looks decided, I'm locking this up.

@AbbadontheDestroyer: Death's power only affects the Earth-616 Marvel Universe. She would be of comparable power as Eternity, Infinity and Oblivion; while Galactus' power fluctuates greatly depending on how much sustenance he gains from consuming planets. At best, they would be considered abstract beings. I'm not banning them.

@AbbadontheDestroyer: He's still a near-godlike being as such where he could casually kill off and threaten the existence of cosmic beings such as Galactus and Death, who are at universal-level.

Battles » Shiki Ryougi vs Shiki Tohno

@EVA_01:

Also, I think Nasu's statement that Shiki could only fight defensively against servants in this state is complete BS.

This applies to Shiki in her Void personality going up against a Servant of average stats as the attributes and parameters of a Servant always differ depending on their class and who they were during their time alive. Her body's merely a shell for Akasha thus despite being capable of possibly destroying all reality, she's still a glass cannon. Read somewhere a while back that the best outcome Shiki could hope for against a Servant is a draw leading to mutual destruction as cutting a Servant's lines of death result in all the mana within their body to release and explode like a bomb, but can't recall specifically where.

As for the match with their normal personalities and just knifes, hard to call. Their attributes are on equal footing as both have supersonic movements, are skilled knife-wielders and both have a great deal of endurance as such to withstand a great deal of physical trauma and damage. In a quick match, would say the match could go to either one. However if this were prolonged, then Ryougi's chances of winning go up as she doesn't suffer any ill effects of having her MEoDP active for extended periods of time compared to Tohno.

Do both have knives or does Ryougi come armed with her katana?

Battles » Kaguya vs. Akatsuki


I can't see Akatsuki prevailing against one of Naruto's top tiers, especially considering the considerable effort Naruto and Sasuke with their Six Paths upgrades had to muster in order to beat her.

Scores are no different from yesterday. Unless anyone votes enough to get a close match, I will end matches tomorrow.

Battles » Alucard vs. Freddy Krueger

In the real world, Freddy would be bloody paste.

Dream world, I can't see him prevailing against Alucard pre-Schrodinger due to the millions of souls present within Alucard. Would be a repeat of the Seras/ Blitz battle.

Post-Scrodinger in dream world, possibly depending on Freddy's level of power as his influence on the dream world depends on the amount of fear he draws from the populace at large. Recall that Schrodinger's omnipresence relies on Alucard having to mentally acknowledge his existence meaning potent enough mind-fuckery could screw Alucard up badly. If Freddy is strong enough on his influence in the dream world, he could possibly mess Alucard's mind up badly by exposing him to his dark past.

Battles » Pre-Retcon Beyonder vs Akimu Najimi

Both pre and post retcon versions of Beyonder are banned characters. I suggest you not only read up on Battle Forum Rules, but also the Banned Characters list to see what we allow and don't allow for matches and characters.

Locking this up.

Battles » Younger Toguro vs Rob Lucci

@Whats_out_the_bag: Was mistaken on them being machine gun fire since I haven't seen YYH in some time. But still, they were fast enough to easily evade pistol fire from several mooks, and in confined quarters too:

Battles » Younger Toguro vs Rob Lucci

@Whats_out_the_bag: He's well within hypersonic territory. Yusuke and Kuwabara were fast enough to easily evade machine gun fire around the time they first encountered the Toguros and Younger Toguro was faster than the two at just 30% of his power output before the Dark Tournament.

As for the match, would agree with Toguro getting a win. He'd have some difficulty dealing with Lucci's speed, but the CP9 leader wouldn't have the destructive power necessary to put down Toguro.
