Battles » Avatar Korra vs Kakashi (Part One)

Kakashi would be overwhelmed by the heavy bending attacks coming from Korra and his stamina reserves are nowhere as good with milking the Sharingan's abilities as they would be later on following the timeskip.

General Discussion » Official Anime/ Manga Teams/ Organizations Voting Tourney Thread

Voting time is up. Dai-Gurren Brigade (5-3) advance to the next round, while we have a tie in the second match. With the second match tied, I will make the winning vote which will go to the SSS. Dai-Gurren and SSS will face off in the next round. Time for the next set of matches:

Match #1

This mysterious criminal organization have operatives consisting of those with superhuman powers called Contractors and mediums that mimic a human form called Dolls. Members of this group communicate with one another via word of mouth and have access to memory-wiping technology to prevent witnesses from learning of their identities. Their motives are mostly ambiguous throughout the course of their series, yet their influence in the world of crime is such that many crime-fighting organizations like MI-6 and the Japanese police seek them out. This is Darker than Black's Syndicate.

Notable Members: Hei, Yin, Amber, Mao, Havoc, Huang, Mai Kashiwagi, Eric Nishijima

And their opponents...

This group consists of the ten strongest Arrancar created through Sousuke Aizen's use of the Hogyoku. Organized within the large fortress in Hueco Mundo called Las Noches, each member has a number tattooed on their bodies designating their status within their group with their power and influence allowing them control of other Arrancar within Aizen's ranks in the fortress. Their power is enough of a threat that they give members of the Gotei 13 a good deal of difficulty in their efforts to apprehend Aizen and reclaim the Hogyoku from him. This is Bleach's Espada.

Notable Members: Yammy Llargo, Coyote Starrk, Lilynete Gingerbuck, Baraggan Louisenbairn, Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, Tier Harribel, Ulquiorra Cifer, Nnoitra Gilga, Luppi Antenor, Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, Zommari Rureaux, Szayelaporro Granz, Aaroniero Arruruerie

Match #2

These six students from Hakoniwa Academy led by Medaka Kurokami were brought together to compete in the second Jet Black Wedding Feast when Medaka chose to join the competition in Kamome Tsurubami's place. While initially though to have selected the other members of her team at random, it is revealed that Medaka selected the strongest members within her school that wouldn't die and promised four of the members of her team a reward if they were successful in winning the competition. This is Medaka Box's All Jokers.

Notable Members: Medaka Kurokami, Kamome Tsurubami, Misogi Kumagawa, Hansode and Hanten Shiranui, Najimi Ajimu

And their opponents...

Having served the Queen of Britain for generations, this Protestant organization mixed with human and vampire members exist to slay all non-human creatures that threaten the British populace. At the center of their power is the centuries-old vampire Alucard, who has been controlled by the Hellsing family bloodline for generations. This organization find their forces put to the test when a Nazi organization called Millennium unleash their armies of artificial vampires upon the city of London. This is Hellsing's titular group, the Hellsing Organization.

Battles » Joke Battle: Umineko Witches vs Stone Cold Steve Austin

@CerusSerenade: Austin's married. He'd have no interest in lesbians by this point. :P

Not to mention that he wasn't gun-shy to give a Stunner to women, as Stephanie and Linda McMahon would learn.

Just Anime » Ani-Crap Poll #45

Consider this a bump up and some quick news about an upcoming poll. Blade still leads the poll with 3 votes, but I Don't Like You at All Big Brother is behind by only a vote. Still have 5 days left to vote.

As for the news, I am planning to do a Year End Garbage poll again for the December edition of Ani-Crap where you vote among 10 of this year's worst titles you want me to see to conclude the year of 2014. Obviously, I won't be doing Recently, My Sister is Unusual since I already covered it back in April. But if there's any other notable dud that has been around this year like Pupa or Maken-Ki Two, they will be possible pickings to choose from for the poll in December.

Battles » Broly and Goku VS Pennywise/IT

This is so one-sided, it isn't even funny. If Pennywise could get offed by normal adult humans, then the Saiyans would hardly have to do much in slaughtering the clown.

Gonna have to lock this up.

Battles » Ludoga Kresnik (Tales of Xillia) Vs Z(Tenchi Muyo)

With how heated this is getting, I might as well lock this before things get worst.

@Kurohige: @CerusSerenade: I suggest you two chill out the next time you debate one another.

Cerus, if I see you make things get heated in another thread again, I will temp-ban you.

Battles » Gohan vs. Vegeta

Even factoring in Vegeta at Cell Saga, I still picture the Saiyan prince prevailing here due to greater experience and equivalent power level. Gohan was rusty from neglecting his training for so long after the timeskip and even his SSJ2 form was only comparable in strength to Dabura, who was stated to be as strong as Perfect Cell. In comparison, Gohan in his FPSSJ form at age 11 was equal to Cell's Perfect form in power despite his hesitance at wanting to fight the bio-android. As long as Vegeta doesn't get arrogant and careless, he should be able to win most scenarios against Gohan due to greater fighting experience.

Battles » Ludoga Kresnik (Tales of Xillia) Vs Z(Tenchi Muyo)

@CerusSerenade: Again, no. It's not the LHW that make Z inferior to Tenchi. It is Tenchi being the avatar of the higher being that the Choushin are seeking out.

Battles » Ludoga Kresnik (Tales of Xillia) Vs Z(Tenchi Muyo)

@CerusSerenade: Z can't use LHW for material conversion abilities like Tenchi can. However when he cancelled out Tenchi's LHW, it led to the battle attire, shield and sword Tenchi created to vanish as a result which left Tenchi very vulnerable as he lacked a means to attack and defend himself before his power surged out of control. Leaving out the connection to Kami Tenchi, Z had more LHW and more experience at using them while Tenchi can only unleash his in life-threatening situations and not as much experience with controlling them.

Editing & Tools » Concept ideas thread.

Been meaning to come up with one for the Holy Grail War from Fate/ Stay Night as there's quite a bit of history and details to it that you wouldn't find mentioned from any of the anime titles for Fate that covered the 4th and 5th Holy Grail Wars. But because of how comprehensive the information is for it and the large amount of time I would have to devote just to prepare everything in it, I have yet to work up the motivation to do so.

Battles » Ludoga Kresnik (Tales of Xillia) Vs Z(Tenchi Muyo)

Z's LHW are inferior to Tenchi's.

If we're talking power from LHW, Z would be superior in this case since he cancelled out Tenchi's three LHW with three of his five to leave the boy vulnerable to attack. It's more Tenchi's body being an avatar of Kami Tenchi that makes him far superior to Z in raw power, something the boy is still rather inexperienced in learning to harness and control.

Do we have proof that Z is actually universal?

He's universal level on the fact his LHW are capable of negating anything equal to or lower in power to him down to zero and this is based off Tenchi unleashing his power when Z with 2 LHW attempted to strike him down as the resulting attack from Tenchi killed him and was causing a multiversal collapse from Tenchi's body trying to enter other dimensions. Human users of LHW gain double the power from each LHW being generated, meaning that Z with 5 LHW would be capable of fending off an attack that could wipe out up to 10 universes at once before getting killed off. There's an equation used to determine this as the value of 1 LHW is 1 and each additional one made has the number double due to twice the energy being generated for each additional one created:

1+2+4+8+16=31

Basing this off Z's 2 LHW he had remaining before getting offed by Tenchi's attack, we divide 31 by 3 (the number of LHW he used to negate Tenchi's) to get 10.3333...

Battles » Gohan vs. Vegeta

Would have to go with Vegeta. As discussed, Gohan's power weakened and his fighting expertise was somewhat dulled due to the years he had not trained since Cell's defeat. On the other hand, Vegeta continued to rigorously train throughout the years where his power increased greatly and he's a more experienced fighter as he can be a competent tactician so long as he doesn't hot-headed. The Saiyan prince would be on Gohan's level of power, but his greater fighting experience would allow him to overcome the boy in a fight.

Battles » Naruto Bracket

@jashro44: If you're gonna go about with this, I'd suggest you set up a pair of matches to run for set periods of time for folks to decide on. Deciding the whole thing in one lot would be too convoluted to figure out.

Also, why do some of your brackets have teams going up against one person?

Battles » Ludoga Kresnik (Tales of Xillia) Vs Z(Tenchi Muyo)

@CerusSerenade:

Both get their power from their creators

This is only the case with LHW used by Juraian spaceships when they draw upon Tsunami's power. Z, Tenchi and the Choushin draw their power in forming LHW directly from a higher plane of existence in which they manifest this energy into physical constructs. The ones formed by Juraian spaceships are inferior in power since they do not draw power directly from this higher plane and can not use LHW simultaneously for offense and defense.

Battles » Ludoga Kresnik (Tales of Xillia) Vs Z(Tenchi Muyo)

@Saladking: Refrain from any insults unless you want a warning.

@CerusSerenade: Same applies to you since you're fanning the flames.

@Kurohige: The whole mess with properly assessing the capabilities of Umineko as a whole were what led me to have to ban them a short time ago.

I won't comment on the match since I'm unfamiliar with the Tales franchise. But I will comment on some things with Z since I'm a Tenchi Muyo fan myself:

The LHW make Z barely a low-level multiversal as two LHW can hold up against attacks up to universal-level and each subsqeuent LHW formed grants its wielder twice as much power in abilities. He'd be screwed over against a true multiversal being put up against him. But those at universal-level or lower are still fodder for him since the wings can fends off against any destructive power and haxes equal to or lower than his present level of power and nearly anything that are struck down by the LHW are wiped out from existence. It's not destructive capabilities that make Z such a threat with his LHW. It's the fact that the LHW can fend off against mostly any form of conventional attack and hax, being one of fiction's most broken defenses and its offensive uses allow one to ignore physical durability and anything that would result in an enemy to revive (resurrection, regeneration, reincarnation, etc...) to wipe out a target from existence.
