#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Seven Deadly Sins (Anime)

I have a feeling decisions like this are informed by financial matters. Had Deadly Sins began 10 years ago, it would probably be still ongoing, along with series like Magi. They can make it enjoyable even at the current pace but 27 or even more episodes would have been better.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Seven Deadly Sins (Anime)

Anime adaptations that leave stuff from the manga out really irritate me, mostly because i can't help but think about how people that do not read the manga won't be able to appreciate the story fully because the director is choosing to stray from the clearly superior source material. The Diana/King/Helbrum stuff was done far better in the Nanatsu no Taizai manga, and i remember the passing of time not only made sense but it was used as a surprise or sorts; because you expected hours and days to have passed only to learn that it had been years and even decades each time you flipped a page..

That being said, i still enjoyed the episode. In fact i am surprised at how much of the entire Nanatsu no Taizai anime is so enjoyable. The fact that i read the manga and know what's going to happen doesn't even bother me. The last few episodes have been really impressive (though the Gowther bits didn't exactly workout). We need more anime like this. I actually look forward to each new episode.

Off-Topic » Supernatural Discussion

The way things ended with Cain wasn't very impressive. I honestly do not know where Supernatural is going. It has had some decent episodes but the overall story line isn't exactly getting better. I think the series needs a lot of new characters. The first five seasons did a good job of basically butchering every character except Dean, Sam and Castiel. And the series hasn't taken any steps to replace them. We need more regular and interesting faces to look at every week besides Dean and Sam

Battles » Aang vs Natsu

Can Aang blood bend? Because that more or less ends the fight with Natsu's defeat, and very quickly, no matter how strong he is.

General Discussion » What is your family opinion about anime/manga?

My brother loves anime like me. My sister thinks she likes anime because she watched and obsessed over Last Air Bender that one time. Everyone else will not stop asking me why i am still watching cartoons at my age. And i usually reply by questioning their own dubious tastes in entertainment. There was a time where i would defend anime like crazy to anyone that belittled it. But i gave up.

Battles » Hei (Darker Than Black) Vs Batman

@Dream: Name one serious fight that Batman won fair and square, where there were no lingering questions about how he pulled off certain moves or survived certain attacks. Do you honesty believe Batman could beat someone like punisher, let alone Hei?

Battles » Gama runs Kenshin gauntlet

I had this argument once with someone; Game would probably defeat shishio. Gama vs Enishi is 50/50. But he isn't beating Seijuro

Battles » Hei (Darker Than Black) Vs Batman

@Dream said:

@katmic: The only worth the molecular manipulation ability had at least up to the end of Darker than Black's first season was the power to manipulate gate particles, or in this case Hell's Gate. Other than causing Contractors to gain or lose their powers with contact from it, it doesn't really do much for the battle and Hei never knew about the ability until the end of the first season thus he was a bit inexperienced with utilizing it.

And what has you assuming that Hei's suddenly superior to Batman and Captain America in terms of fighting prowess? Both have fought superhuman foes that are worst threats than the Contractors Hei has confronted throughout Darker than Black.

My knowledge of batman comes from cartoons and animated movies; and from what i have seen, his victories against super humans almost always come down to plot. I noticed this during one particular movie where batman took a punch from Darkseid and simply fell back. The same punch that had caught a super fast superman, sending him through mountains. Even in hand to hand combat it would be difficult to argue that Batman is anywhere near as skilled or agile as Hei

Battles » Naruto and Toneri (The Last) vs Cloud and Zack (FF7 Crisis Core)

With all these Toneri threads i keep seeing, i am starting to wonder if i am the only one who hasn't watched The Last Yet. Though am not sure where you guys watched it from. i cant seem to find it. My only knowledge of Zack and Cloud comes from the movies and cartoons. I can see team Naruto winning handily.

Battles » Hei (Darker Than Black) Vs Batman

Everyone is forgetting that Hei can manipulate molecules; i don't think batman's suit is going to matter much. And batman's fighting skills are barely superior to someone like Captain America, and Hei can take him easily. Hei wins both rounds.

Battles » Kratos vs Madara

@CosmicKnight75 said:

@GalaxianExplosion05: About Island level+ via scaling off Apollo who destroys Islands if I recall, Ares' casual Multi-Mountain level attacks, and the even stronger Gods like Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, and Thanos as well as Titans that Kratos regularly overpowers. Hell even back before the first game, Kratos beat Persephone and Atlas at the same time and other Titan-sized baddies like Aegaeon.

Madara w/ Susano'o is quite easily Multi-Mountain level though.

I don't know if we can put kratos on island level just because he overpowered so these guys; that's like estimating luffy's power level during the first few hundred chapters of the manga based on Enel's power level and the fact that Luffy essentially defeated him.

Battles » Gildarts Clive Vs Dreyfus

@Ikki_Minami_: Until i actually see Gildartz fight, i am not going to be convinced that he's particularly strong. He's never around when the big stuff is happening, and he's never fought anyone worthwhile for his strength to be measured. More importantly Dreyfus doesn't need mountain busting strength to kill Gildartz. A sword to the chest will do just fine.

Battles » Gildarts Clive Vs Dreyfus

@akronawol17: What makes you think Dreyfus is above Diane? She fought both Dreyfus and Hendricksen within the kingdom's walls. She couldn't use her hammer to full effect; if she had , she would have leveled everything. I still think she could have been a match for Dreyfus with Gideon.

Gildarts is a mountain buster... I don't think any on panel feat of NNT matches that. Gildarts wins.

they do have mountain level feats on panel, just not too many. this is Diane using her Sacred Treasure to lift a mountain into the air and smash a Holy Knight with it.

Dreyfus should be above Diane too by the way.

Is that what she was trying to do? Smash a knight with a mountain? That just made sense to me now. I always thought she tried to smash Helbram with her hammer and the mountain rising was just a side effect.

I remember Dreyfus matching Meliodas blow for blow very effectively; Meliodas, at least based on what i have seen, should be faster than Gildartz. Dreyfus does not necessarily require mountain busting strength to beat Gildartz. He has a sword. And then their is his demon side.

Just Manga » any one here read korean manwha or chinese man hua

I also don't make much distinction between manga and manhwa. I just read whatever i find interesting. Though between the two, manga is better than manhwa most of the time. Manhwa has better art but is usually written rather badly, with a few exceptions. Though normally i can actually tell manhwa characters apart while manga characters are drawn in such a way that they tend to blend into one another.

Battles » Witch King vs Rin Okumura

Let's not forget the witch king's morgul blade; one stab and Rin begins his journey to becoming a wraith and slave to the witch king. But i will have to first watch Blue exorcists again to remember what Rin can do.

Battles » Witch King vs Rin Okumura

It has been ages since i watched Ao no Exorcist; it has been even longer since i read lord of the rings. the one thing i remember about the witch king is that any weapon that strikes him or which he comes in contact with is destroyed instantly. This includes magical weapons, and the person wielding the weapon that was destroyed is also poisoned in the process.

Battles » Aokiji vs Doflamingo

The fact that Doflamingo shows no fear when up against the admirals does't mean much. Luffy could fight any emperor any day of the week without any fear. He would lose but he wouldn't have any fear. Doflamingo wanted to kill Smoker. Aokiji wouldn't let him. If Doflamingo didn't think of Aokiji as a real threat he would have fought him there and then, and killed him just to eliminate smoker. Yet he chose to leave.

In other words he wasn't willing to take the chance to fight Aokiji; that is caution, possibly even fear. Compare this with Fujitora. Doflamingo has not hesitated to attack fujitora whenever he has needed to; clearly he doesn't fear him. this is not the same attitude with which he approaches Aokiji
