Kuroko no Basket final chapter, Naruto in it's final stage and Hunter x Hunter on hiatus yet again until further notice. All within weeks of each other. Jump will probably not have it easy in 2015.

I agree wholeheartedly. I think someone told me that it was a 17+ Shounen. I was like really? They apparently avoided the Seinen classification by going down one year at the targeted demograph. Probably because Shounen has more viewers. Shingeki no Kyojin does the same thing.

Battles » Sunny vs. Coco

Agreed. Pre skip it was Zebra > Sunny > Toriko > Coco. Post skip it is likely Toriko > Zebra > Sunny > Coco.

Battles » Sunny vs. Coco

Intuition. At that point Sunny was the expert with intuition and he taught Toriko. The other kings we don't know if they had it. Sunny isn't good at dodging barrages but a single attack which was Coco's limit at the time would be highly possible. Also he could only ever get it off if Sunny didn't resort to Satan Hair first. It's too fast. Also I believe the spear was only composed of spores which are not particularly poisonous so if Sunny can survive implement as he can, he could still go at it. What beat Invite Death was Poison Virus that infected it and killed it.

Battles » Sunny vs. Coco

If its cooking fest then I'd probably side with Sunny even more since he was the only King who seemed to have control over his Appetite Devil. By it's not a guaranteed win again. Coco has a shot.

Battles » Sunny vs. Coco

I'm with Sunny. Despite the fact that he should be the strongest one now, Coco might fare better against Toriko, although I can't see him winning that. Sunny's feelers are now 700 meters long and he has over a million of them. What's more is that he can control remote hairs at will so his range is actually almost limitless. Coco can spam poison and make poison creatures which is HAX but Sunny in my opinion is the most hax of the kings. If Coco landed a poison at his Gurren level, it might very well one hit kill Sunny at this point, but Sunny's hair is equally lethal and there's more of it. It's close but I'd give Sunny 3/5 at least.

Battles » The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants vs The Chimera Ants.

Magneto or Juggernaut could easily solo. On the flip side Mystique and Sabretooth alone would be screwed. P.S. we aren't supposed to have multiple individual fights in a single topic unless it's something like a gauntlet.

Just Manga » List of Manga Series Ending in 2014

Need to bump this. Apparently Tokyo Ghoul is ending this month abruptly too in one week on September 18th. I've heard some folks current in the manga say that there is foreshadowing of a sequel series but nothing has been confirmed. I don't know what's going on this year.

Battles » Vali Lucifer vs Esdeath

@GeneralVan: Hisoka would lose to Esdeath, Kurome or Wave if they were serious.

How would any Chimera ant deal with time stop and getting flash frozen or cut apart? Wave and Kurome are powerful in their own right. Are you current yet?

Battles » Dio vs Hisoka

Yeah very true. And he technically had beams in part 1. He could one or 2 shot Hisoka with those since his durability isn't exactly great. I Don't see Hisoka realistically avoiding them.

Battles » Gohan vs. Vegeta

Gonna side with Gohan here. He might have been weaker than before but "before" he was still stronger than Vegeta. As someone who achieved ssj2, I don't think he would be weaker than someone who only achieve ussj1 only. At minimum he would probably be equal to Vegeta. And since their bloodlusted, Vegeta does not have altus advantage being the only ruthless Saiyan around.

Battles » GOTEI 13(Bleach) VS MARINES(OnePiece)

Vague but it seems to be the opposite of her shikai. Rather than rapidly restoring, it's clear that the bankai rapidly destroys you, but the means by which this is done are unclear. It seems to some extent to ignore dirability, but again to what limit it isn't clear.

Battles » Vali Lucifer vs Esdeath

I caught that GeneralVan! Esdeath can beat HxH top tiers if she's bloodlusted. But she can't beat this guy it's true.

Meruem. I don't think Juza has the physical might to take down Meruem, especially post nuke.

Battles » Dio vs Hisoka

Dio would win whether speed is equal or not to be honest. Part 1 maybe not although even that could be very troublesome for Hisoka.

Battles » Eneru vs Ulquiorra

Enel was punched by Luffy because he was made of rubber which electricity can't pass through. It's the only reason he lost.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Black Butler: Book of Circus Discussion

Yeah. I especially liked the last 3 arcs best. Without spoiling, Ciel gets a lot of character development in the latest 2. And the arc before there is probably the highest amount of action so far.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Black Butler: Book of Circus Discussion

@Marshal Victory: The other place i saw the Noah (in anime/manga at least) was Soul Eater, but the introduction was later than D. Gray man and Black Butler if I'm not mistaken. But I like both series quite a bit. D. Gray Man inspired more series than i think it's given credit for, not the least of which is the character design of Qwaser's Alexander Hell. Pretty much copy and paste of Allen Walker.

@Marshal Victory:

They ended the anime series without showing the full end of the story arc in the manga. Time for me to read the manga then. I feel we been cheated by the anime a bit.

Thanks.

I caught up to the manga a few weeks ago. The story doesn't move very quickly but it's better later in the series than earlier in the series in my opinion.

@taichokage: I watched the anime of D.Gray-man tho never got to finish it. How does this remind you of that? Circus kinda aspect?

The main characters Allen and Ciel are both British. They both have grey hair with a curse mark on their eye. They're both also orphans.

They both had an antagonistic group by the name of Noah. Very unusual. I've only seen that in one other series. They both also take place in the late Victorian Era. The art is very similar and there is a Shounen Ai emphasis on both with unusually soft-looking male characters. Then as you also say, the Circus theme is relevant in both.

The biggest difference has got to be the theme. Black Butler is more of a psychological/mystery series D. Gray Man is more Dark Fantasy. But everything else is strikingly similar.

P.S. Sorry for the late reply. Somehow I didn't notice this.
