Just Anime » Worst animated Anime ever?

@GeneralVan: Agree with chaos head; i pushed as far as episode 6 because i was told it had some mind blowing twists at the end; but i couldn't get past the halfway point. 
 
I am giving katekyos another go because of all the praise it gets, even though it is also off to a difficult start.

Kakashi's issue is most definitely stamina; with speed equalized he loses.

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

@taichokage: Agree on Bleach, the first part of the war was great. Now however each new chapter is just a new sternritter for the heroes to fight. We know there are 26 sternritters; but like the arrancar, i don't know why Kubo thinks we need to see each and everyone of them along with their special abilities. We are probably going to get another year of sternritter fights. While not totally terrible it is getting frustrating.

Battles » FAIRY TAIL TRIO vs SOUL EATER TRIO

@Chef_Banchou said:

@katmic: Alright, I'll give you three reasons why I think that none of them will be able to beat the Fairy Tail crew.

1. The moon in Soul Eater is much, much smaller than the actual moon. It's maybe island sized, to small country sized at best.

2. So DTK is a shinigami now...and your point is? If you'll remember, Lord Death is also a shinigami, yet he was in critical condition after taking a full power attack from kishin. True, he didn't die, but it was shown that he could at the very least still be incapacitated.

3. I'll give you that one. BS seems to be physically stronger than Erza, which is impressive indeed. However, I believe that Erza could match him in durability, at the very least. Remember how she fought, killed, and tanked the attacks of 100 S class monsters, plus other lower class monsters, and emerged bloody, beaten, and victorious. Note that those S class monsters were stated to be a challenge to council mages.

The onus is on you to prove to me that the soul eater moon is much smaller than normal. And calling them S class doesn't make the monsters Erza defeated particularly tough.  power rankings in fairy tail are iffy and fluctuate depending on the power of friendship. Kishin and his fear abilities are in a whole other league compared to fairy tail.

Team fairy tail would have a hard time simply killing blackstar, considering that he was tanking hits from the kishin harder than anything Natsu, Erza and Gray have ever done. Add Kid into the mix and they take this fight pretty handily; Maka is merely the icing on the cake, ready to jump in, in case things take longer than they should.

BS is the only one with decent feats, Maka and DtK are by far the weakest in both durability and power. also, no, BS's tanking of Kishin's attack is dwarfed by Erza's tanking of an entire Islands worth of magical energy. team FT winsa handily, with Natsu taking BS down after a decent fighthi

Kishin was tearing the moon apart with his hits, swings and blasts; not even Erza has tanked anything close to that. More importantly, i might be mistaken but now that Death the Kid is a full blown shiningami, he should be immortal; forget blackstar, Erza, Natsu and Gray don't have a single weapon that is actually capable of killing Kid. The combination of kid and BS is too powerful. I have pointed before to the fact that Kishin broke BS's back during the final fight (not cracked or bruised, BS's back actually broke), and black star was up mere seconds later fighting the Kishin again and lifting several dozen tons worth of rock with his back broken.

Natsu is durable. But what you will realize from previous Soul eater vs fairy tail threads on AnimeVice is, BS vs. Achnologia would be a more fair match. Until we see more from Achnologia, Blackstar can fight on equal footing with achnologia. Heck Hades and makarov together would be hard pressed to put black star down, and again that doesn't take into account Death the kid, now a full blown immortal shiningami.

no, BS is nowhere near acnolgia in power. the Soul Eater moon is extremely small btw, so thats not impressive either. acnolgia and Erza's island level feats >>> Kishin and BS's city and mountain level ones. also, even if DtK is immortal, he can still be KO'ed

you and i must have read different soul eater manga. BS would deliver to achnologia a serious defeat

Naruto » NARUTO 692 (REVIEW)

@sickVisionz said:

@katmic: I go back to the days when he was all about teamwork, they show him training with Orochimaru and refusing to kill people, then he attacks Killer Bee and is looking out for his new teammates during the fights, raids the Kage summit and is still looking out for his teammates... then he fights Danzo and he's impaling Karin like "I don't care about my teammates!" and then challenging Team 7 to a fight for like no real reason. That was like, huh?

So ok, he's changed. He's out to attack Konoha. Then the war arc is happens and now he wants to save and protect everyone and goes back to being how he always was pretty much over some story about people being friends (as if this is the first time he's heard the concept of friendship). That was a quick personality 180°.

Now he's back to being crazy murder Sasuke and everybody must die.

There's never any subtlety or progression to his changes. It's always instant 180°.

i think your missing something important about this chapter; it is implied that this was all according to his plan. In other words he didn't as much suddenly decide to return to his friends and protect everyone as he did simply make a calculated move. Sasuke saw a threat he couldn't beat, first in madara and then kaguya; so he made the best tactical move, utilize the strength of his friends to defeat an unstoppable enemy so that he would be able to do as he wishes without serious opposition. I don't think this chapter actually said that sasuke flipped to the dark side. He was always on the dark side and i suspect Orochomaru knew that.
 
With regards to his earlier change, even if you ignore the fact that all this 'joining the alliance to defeat madara' business was a ruse, none of his changes have been sudden like you assume. I think the reason it appears that way to you is because of how long ago you actually read this material in the manga. Chapters you read two or more years ago i only watched earlier this year in the anime and can analyze all the material at once.

Sasuke didn't suddenly flip to the good side; he was turned by Itachi and hashirama. If you remember the events following Itachi's revival, one thing that stands out is how Sasuke changed when he saw itachi. Again that was two years ago for you, mere months for me, so these events are clear in my mind. Sasuke wasn't simply shocked to see Itachi alive. During the whole kabuto fight, sasuke basically reverted to his old self. He originally went crazy to avenge his brother.  The moment he saw itachi, even when he was chasing him through the trees, that wasn't vengeful sasuke anymore. That was young sasuke simply trying to talk his big brother. this was sasuke no longer interested in revenge, who listened to orders and commands, fell in line during battle and even used team work. this was sasuke like we hadn't seen him for years.
 
Itachi took all of sasuke's misguided rage and extinguished it, especially at the end, when he basically put his trust in sasuke to find his own path no matter what that was. Itachi didn't change sasuke then, but he laid the ground. Sasuke before this moment was a loose canon driven only by rage. Seeing itachi removed that rage, but not that hatred, which is why he was willing to stop for a moment and to question his quest for vengeance. Then he went and spoke to hashirama who basically showed him, through his story about madara, what it took to change the world. By seeing the lengths hashirama and madara were willing to go to defend their beliefs, sasuke basically found his purpose. destroying konoha wouldn't  change anything. like hashirama who wanted to change the entire world, sasuke has realized that, rather than  konoha, it is the shinobi system that is broken. and he aims to change that through a revolution.
 
Again maybe its because i watched all these events in one go over a few months, from madara's revival to itachi meeting sasuke, sasuke reverting to his former self and providing hashirama a clean slate to work with; but i can trace sasuke's change to the good (ish) side. He's rage began with itachi and itachi took that rage away

They write Sasuke in such a flip-floppy way to me. He goes off and on to a berserker barrage that only seems in character if you take into fact how all over the place he's written. Anyways, I just hope the fight is cool and that entirety of it is well-animated.

i don't see the flip floppiness; i don't think the manga said he actually changed, merely that everything we have seen since he seemingly became good was part of his plan. He wanted to destroy Konoha. Then he spoke to itachi and Hashirama and decided that that wouldn't change anything. So instead he took a more measured and tactical approach; get help taking out the big bad evil and when their is no one left to really oppose you, execute your plan. its the kind of thing itachi would do if he were evil

@taichokage: @Destinyheroknight:  That's sounds like it would work; we could also mention series we might be thinking of starting to read or intend to start reading, sort of like a nomination, pick one and give it a go. If the chapters run in the hundreds, then we could simply set targets to be met and discussed on a weekly basis eg, reading 50 to 100 or just the first two arcs and the like, that way those that do not have time can still meet the deadline and partake in the discussion as we proceed in the story.

If this is done in the way of fate/zero, story and character wise, i will enjoy it; if it is done in the style of the original fate/stay night, then i don't have high hopes, outside the amazing animation.

Battles » RIAS GREMORY (HIGH SCHOOL DXD) VS WILLOW (BUFFY)

I have been catching up (somewhat) with Buffy content and comics after the TV series and i was curious as to how the universe's magic users stacked up against Anime magic users and characters. 
Admittedly i have only watched ten eps of High School DXD and its been a few months since then. So this might be a mismatch

Just Manga » MANGA/MANHWA READING GROUP

I got this idea from a friend of mine who was telling me about his book club, which made me think about how the idea would work with manga and manhwa. Admittedly it might seem unnecessary on a website that allows users to access discussion pages about specific manga and manhwa series that have been covered. However i don't think that is the same as what i am thinking about.

With an anime and manga site, you log in, find and discuss whatever series are covered on the different pages which you might have read, either that or you introduce a manga or manhwa series you might have read for others to discuss; that means you only discuss what you have read and don't bother with anything else.

What i am talking about is choosing a manga or manhwa to read over a specific period of time, like a week, everyone interested in the book or club doing their best to read it and then coming together to discuss it. I see it as a pretty efficient way of interested people getting to read those titles that they would normally never touch, or at the very least people like me expanding their tastes.
