@phantomrant: If you don't see what I mean I have no business talking with you. It's elementary.
Great. Good to see you no longer can support your argument.
Powerscaling doesn't really work in Hellsing. We can't assume that because Anderson was a match for Alucard that he is now a bullet timer because Alucard stomped Luke Valentine. Valentine was still outright dodging a hail of bullets while Anderson still could only raise his arms to defend his more vital areas. There is no feat suggesting that Anderson can catch or dodge/pluck bullets out of the air. However there are plenty for Sebastian, and he does it casually.
Wrong. Powerscaling works just fine in Hellsing as it does in any other verse. Why would Hellsing possibly be an exception among other verses?
If Anderson was a match for Alucard, then his combat reactions and speed IS comparable to his. Anderson may not have Valentine's agility or flashiness in dodging what's coming at him, but he sure does have far better reactions and close combat speed than Valentine ever will, proven by the fact that he was able to actually move at a speed that caught Alucard off guard while the same could not be said for Luke Valentine. Saying that he could "ONLY" raise his arms in defense is completely baseless. Anderson has more than sufficient reflexes to move his head away or parry bullets. But he does not, because it is IC of him to tank things through. His bayonets would shatter upon impact against Alucard's bullets. Why attempt to cut them when said bullets would literally bounce off his body? It wastes less effort.
He has several feats of reacting to bullets, blitzing bullet timers, keeping up and matching characters who are hypersonic+, and is leagues above characters who do have casual bullet timing feats like Valentine and Alhambra. He doesn't need to catch or dodge bullets to tag Sebastian in close range when he can already tag much faster characters once they're within reach.
Regardless, there's a big difference between raising your arms and plucking bullets out of the air when it comes to speed, and I see nothing giving Anderson something to close such a massive gap when it comes to that speed.
Except you're ignoring other feats as well and trying to downplay Anderson by analyzing what he didn't do in a singular, narrow feat. Anderson has blitzed Alucard who can "pluck" bullets at point-blank range as well. The same Alucard who can catch a magic bullet several times faster than the 19th century one that Sebastian caught. So do tell me despite canon evidence showing Anderson tagging and clashing with characters who are much faster than what Sebastian's feats give him, why it is that Anderson cannot tag a slower character such as Sebastian?
Sebastian lacks any real speed advantage aside from the fact that he's more agile and can maintain a higher speed while running over longer distances (which is only useful in dodging Anderson's bayonets from a distance as opposed to up-close). Anderson is still superior in reactions and combat speed based on who he's fought, which is very reliable powerscaling given Anderson's own tier in his own verse, regardless of whether he chose to dodge/pluck bullets or not. He has the feats to back up whatever you think he was lacking in his bullet-timing.
