If by Island you mean Japan then this makes sense. Otherwise that's downplaying.
@chill21: Oh good lord.
Kenpachi - Island
Ulqiourra - Town
Grimmjow - MCB
@EVA_01: I think Togashi or Watsuki the creator of Kenshin started it. Looking back, it isn't until the mid-late 90's that the trend started to pick up, but it started with Kenshin and Yu Yu Hakusho from what I gather. He had a few Kurama types in Hakusho, then his wife the creator of Sailor Moon which ran during the same time as Hakusho started doing it too. (Not sure if they were married at the time ). Although bi-shounen in Shojo was not uncommon, but Sailor moon was unusually popular. The 80's stars were Goku, Kenshiro, Jojo, Seiya, then towards the very end of the 80's and start of the 90's, Kenshin and Yusuke, the latter not fitting into that group but Kurama was more popular than he was despite not being the main character.
I think the reason Toriko is only just making 2 million sales a year now is because the young demographic is not interested in that any more, nor are a lot of female readers. It's mostly folks that have been starved of Classic Shounen that are interested, or so it seems.
@EVA_01: Exactly. In typical Shounen fashion, Guys are feminized and girls are hyper-feminized. Guys like Aimaru are considered skinny among Bishokuya, lol.
@SonNeko: Indeed. When I saw Rebecca in the anime I almost lost it.
That huge wall of text is a detailed list of feats that show why Jiraiya and Orochimaru are > most Kage. Most Kage are> Ulquiorra
You cannot be serious. Make a Gokage vs Ulquiorra thread right now and see what people think. Barring the final chapter where Naruto himself joined the ranks, Ulquiorra would trash them. He is so far above most kage it's laughable. Only some of the Hokage are stronger than he is. EOS Naruto, Hashirama and maybe Minato. Not a single other kage is on his level, the Tsuchikage coming the closest.
Im not even convinced that Isshin/Urahara is really > Ulquiorra so can we please stop assuming things Mr CosmicKnight. Lets stick to facts
Given that Aizen himself admitted he would have lost to either Isshin or Urahara 1 on 1 prior to the Hougyoku, I'd say it' safe to say that they are above Ulquiorra.
@taichokage said:Dr Strange. At his best he could even defy LT and destroy multiverses if he wanted to, among numerous other hax spells.
Oh please, Dr. Strange was not multiversal. LT was only a star buster during classic times also. He's at best universal.
There is nobody on this website who will fall for that. Maybe you're referencing the old handbooks (which I own) that stated LT could destroy a star with one blast. That in no way said he was ONLY star level. He was the top of Marvel (even before the character TOAA was introduced officially, LT was around). He has dominion over the entire marvel omniverse. Classic marvel heroes were actually quite often stronger than their modern counterparts. It's only when you go very very far back when Marvel hadn't established it's power hierarchy that there were generally weaker characters.
@flashback180: I meant generally speaking of course. And are you sure? EVA obviously sees what I see. These are popular Bleach females
I'm not saying they are unattractive. Quite the opposite but the ones that aren't tiny or old tend to look like this. Quite different from Bleach females. I also used anime shots of Orihime and Matsumoto which is less exaggerated than the manga that makes them look even more feminine or voluptuous.
