General Discussion » Wolf's Rain recap episodes

Oh, and I'd like to apologize in advance to whichever moderator notices that this should be on the Wolf's Rain page instead of general discussion. I accidentally pushed enter too quickly before i had the chance to attach this thread to a specific page.

General Discussion » Wolf's Rain recap episodes

So yeah, just got Wolf's Rain for my birthday. I want to know which episodes are the infamous recap episodes everyone hates so much. I've heard that they can be completely skipped over without taking anything away from the show.

Battles » Four Tailed Naruto vs World War Hulk

WWH wins, but not because of strength. If we were going by strength, then even though WWH is stronger than 4 tails, it would go on for a LONG time because Naruto would start growing more tails, therefore getting stronger, and because they both have healing factors... You get it, it would take a long time.

Hulk would eventually win though, because as the Green Scar, he's fully capable of rational thought, and can therefore figure out some way to beat him besides just hitting him till they both drop.

Battles » Daredevil and Captain America vs Team Baccano!

I think that team Baccano would lose. Eventually. It would take awhile though. 
 
Now if Claire were fighting, well, it'd probably end differently.

General Discussion » Why are Shounens so long?

I know that the mangaka genuinly enjoy what they do. Oda and Kishi are perfect examples. I'm pretty sure Oda has explicitly said that One Piece was originally supposed to be less than 500 chapters, but he extended it because he was having so much fun. And reading the autobiographical entries Kishi put into Part 1 of Naruto reveal just how much he loves what he does and how hard he worked to get to that point. And they also get paid. But i don't think that's quite as important to them as you might think, the aforementioned autobiographical entries by Kishi also  say that he has very little free time, because most of it is spent on the artwork and chapters. Money's not as big a deal when you don't have the time to spend it. Still important though.

Naruto » Who did Kabuto summon to blackmail Madara?

@MisterShin: That was the original explanation, but it was either proven wrong (or retconned, depending on your opinion of Kishi's writing) 403 chapters later.

Naruto » Who did Kabuto summon to blackmail Madara?

It can't be the First Hokage. The Third sealed his soul into the Death God along with the second. All of the first four Hokage are in there, which is why Kabuto hasn't summoned any of them, he can't.

General Discussion » At what age did you start watching anime?

I was five years old when my brother made me watch Pokemon with him, then we moved on to Digimon. Then i moved on to Toonami, and then on to Adult Swim, and a combination of Code Geass and Naruto brought me onto the internet.

Bleach » Where do babies come from?

Okay, jokes aside, in the worlds of Bleach, virtually everything is maintained by a constant balance of souls going in and out of the afterlife. People who die in the living world become ghosts, and then either go to Soul Society or become a Hollow. Hollows eventually end up getting purified and sent to Soul Society or killed and sent to hell. When people in Soul Society die, they're reborn in the living world. And the cycle goes on and on and on. 
 
But there are noble families and houses, and therefore lineages in Soul Society. Characters like Byakuya, Kyoraku, Ukitake, the Shiba siblings, Yourichi... they were all presumably born in the Soul Society.... where did their souls come from? Everyone else in Soul Society came there in the state they were when they died. That kid who was put in the canary from Chad's introduction Arc showed up as a kid in Soul Society. Rukia was apparently a toddler or baby when she and Hisana first wound up there.
 
So where the hell are the babies coming from? I do have my own theories, but if anyone has an outright explanation i'd be really happy to hear it.

Just Manga » Ichigo Back to square 1 ( spoiler)

@Destinyheroknight said:

@sickVisionz:

I thought she wasn't a vice-captain because she wasn't skilled enough and strong enough to be one

She thought she wasn't skilled enough because of Kaien's death, that what hold her back from being a vice-captain (I have to find the scan of it)

@ninjadude853:

No, it was because Byakuya didn't want her exposed to the increased level of danger that being a lieutenant would bring.

I'm pretty sure it's said by the overly cutesy mod soul Rukia put in her body when she fought D-Roy waaaaaay back in the Arrancar Arc.

Just Manga » Ichigo Back to square 1 ( spoiler)

@cfatalis: No, Shikai is more like the difference in power between Dragonball and Dragonball Z. Bankai is SS, Bankai with the hollow mask is SS2, and final getsuga is SS3

Just Manga » Ichigo Back to square 1 ( spoiler)

Personnally, i'm interested to see if Zangetsu has changed more than it's physical form. And i don't think we've seen the last of Ichigo's fullbring. Those X shaped things around his wrists and chest kind of remind me of it's appearance.

@sickVisionz:

If Rukia somehow got strong enough to become a lt., maybe my dream of Bleach Z where everyone's abilities have skyrocketed past what was once considered powerful has come true.

Rukia was already at Vice-Captain level (before the time skip), the reason why she wasn't a seat number or vice-captain is because of Kaien's death

No, it was because Byakuya didn't want her exposed to the increased level of danger that being a lieutenant would bring.

Black Lagoon » Why the hell is Black Lagoon so expensive?

@Chaoskiller2000: Okay, that makes sense. 
 
Do you know if there's any chance of them being re released when they translate Roberta's Blood Trail?

Black Lagoon » Why the hell is Black Lagoon so expensive?

Okay, go to ebay or amazon and look up Black Lagoon. The DVDs that only have four episodes usually cost between 20 and 30 dollars, which is a generally reasonable price for anime, high compared to other series but not to a ridiculous degree. 
 
But when you look at the complete sets, whether it be for an individual season or the whole 24 episode show, the prices get upwards of 90 bucks at least... Why the hell is it so high? I've seen it reach over 200 on ebay. Just... Why? Is it rare or what?

Battles » Joke battle : Conan vs Conan vs Conan

Of course Conan would win. Conan would get his ass kicked by Conan, and then Conan would take down Conan, but Conan would take his time beating down Conan, because Conan is amused by beating Conan.

General Discussion » Important Bleach Poll: watching or reading?

I picked out I only read the manga, but that 's not completely accurate, because i also watch the dub on Adult Swim.

General Discussion » Whats the best shonen manga/anime to you?

Fullmetal Alchemist is the best shonen manga i've ever read. It's the most well put together, it has excellent pacing, characterization, plot, action, and is just all around perfectly crafted. 
 
That said, my favorite shonen manga is totally Naruto.
 
EDIT:Oh, and Gurren Lagann is my favorite anime.

Naruto » Do you think Naruto will get the Rinnegan and/or Sharingan?

I don't think Naruto will gain the Rinnegan. But at the same time, it wouldn't surprise me if he did. I personally think that Naruto will gain the chance to have the Rinnegan, but will refuse it instead for... some reason.  Also, this: 
@sickVisionz said:

I don't think he will get either. Sasuke will forever represent the brother who got eyes and Naruto will forever represent the brother who got physical strength.

That makes a tremendous amount of sense.
