@taichokage: @SonNeko: We are talking about Kratos at his most powerful here. Every time he gets killed in the games, he simply climbs out of the underworld to fight another day, that or travel back in time and have another go at the challenge with new information. If this is Kratos at his most powerful ,then we are considering the fact that, after killing Ares, he was 500 feet tall (i don't know how tall the 4beast is though). And the Blade of Olympus can cut anything and everything.
Kratos has a pretty wide array of weapons and magical abilities, this including some control over time and that sword that he killed Zeus with. Plus, i think he can also fly. I seems like he should have some chance against Fourbeast.
Naruto characters are pretty weak with regards to durability; but, like Naruto, Juubito, being a jinchuriki, has the advantage of healing. IN other words he should be able to tank whatever Garp throws at him and rejuvenate from it. I don't know Sensui so i cannot say.
I was going to scream Naruto automatically, mostly because i do not connect Aladdin with strength in my mind; but some of the comments above reminded of just what Aladdin was capable of. He takes it in both rounds. If this was Shipudden Naruto, even without his chakra cloak and sage mode, he would have taken the victory, mostly because he is older, wiser and even with basic Ninjutsu and taijutsu he could have taken Aladdin down. Young Naruto on the other hand was way too brash. He can't win. I forgot how much of a badass Aladdin can be.
I always skip them in the first two episodes, especially when i don't know what the anime is about; i like to be surprised and themes, beginning and end, can provide subtle spoilers. By the third episode, once the series is introduced to me, i will watch them, but only once. After that, i will skip them unless they are really interesting and the music is nice, which is rare.
My computer is usually not far from me through out most of the day, so i guess i have a lot of time to watch anime, read manga, catch up on a few TV series and movies, maybe even read a chapter of a novel. But that depends on the sort of day am having; there is always a day or two in the week that keep me busy; but then again i have nights to catch up on anime and manga, especially if i am tired and i need to stay awake to get some work done.
@taichokage: Same here, i try to stick to two or three series at a time; but i will usually end up watching a little of everything and finishing very little. By the time i get back to some series, i can't even remember what they were about.
@Daniel_Newton: i don't think he's any angrier than Tennant was; but then again i haven't watched beyond Time Heist; so maybe something happens in the next two episodes. I am enjoying Clara's development; she's becoming an integral part of the series. She's finally becoming more of her own character rather than being just the doctor's companion
@Destinyheroknight: Forgot about this for a while.
This is the first slice of life manga i have ever read. I watched an anime called Bunny Drop a while back, which is my only slice of life anything i have seen. All in All, not what i expected. I don't know why i expected it to bore me to death , where moving from page to page would be a chore. Instead it actually kept me hooked to the story, chapter after chapter. I finished it faster than i thought i would primarily because i was covering so much more ground of the manga per day than i expected.
It is the characters rather than the story that got me; every new chapter i was curious to find out what would happen to them, how they would react to recent developments, how they would change and so on and so forth. And of course it all revolved around Shoko whose situation was easy to sympathize with.
The manga made easy villains out of her classmates, and unlike you i didn't quite sympathise with shoya until the halfway point. Before that point i looked at it as him simply getting what he deserved. But his development was handled well, the way he was learning about himself and Shoko over time. There were some bits i found frustrating. I easily lose patience over plots that base their progression around misunderstandings. And there was a lot of that here, where things happened or didn't happen all because no one said what needed to be said at one point or simply misunderstood what was said and made no attempt to ask; besides Shoko herself, that irritated me when it occurred and ended up dragging out some uncomplicated elements.
The art was great; i guess there is something about shonen battle manga that means they must be really messy; because the art here was clean and easy to understand. I like how the mangaka used those 'X's on characters' faces to display Shoya's relationship, those people he had accepted, those he hadn't accepted, basically where he stood with them. Overall i would give it an 8/10. For my first slice of life, it kept me interested.
What did you think about of Ueno (the girl that hated Shoko)?
