    I don't think we'll ever see Kizaru act serious in any battle. He doesn't have lazy justice like Aoikiji or absolute justice like Akainu. He's more of a joker. We might think he's never been serious but it's hard to tell he makes too many damn jokes. Despite this based on what I've seen him do and the others it just doesn't cut it against strong willed opponents like Shanks. I feel he has the greatest use of his df but when it comes to haki strength and tactics the other dogs blue and red are superior.

    Well, how can he not be affected? He lost his main left hand that he used to weild sword... It is obvious that it affected his swordsmanship no matter how you look at it...
    Also loosing a hand makes an impact on your mobility and defense.

    im gonna go ahead to that, what oda says, is the absolute rule, oda said he's fighting ability didn't change, so it didn't.

    Also guys keep in count, that kizaru does not actually move at the speed of light, he's quick, but not to that level *_*

    Re: First Round 17. (Shanks vs Kizaru)

    This is, so far the hardest fight to vote on.
    I have been thinking about it, and I cannot decide!!


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    No matter what you say his overall fighting ability might not change, but his particular capability as a swordsman can't be the same... he lost his main hand. It's just obvious. If his overall fighting ability didn't change, then he should have improven his Haki, otherwise it doesn't make sense.

    Well it does, what if he can use his left hand as well as the right hand?

    In a serious fight between Shanks and WB, Shanks would be stomped flat. So would be Kizaru.
    I don't believe that for a second. He may have been the Strongest Man Alive, but that doesn't mean no single person could match him. Roger was the Pirate King but Whitebeard was his equal. Whose to say the other 3 Yonkou couldn't have been equal to him or at least close to him. It isn't even fair to say WB would stomp Shanks and Kizaru flat as we haven't even seen them go all out, unlike WB. And looking at Punk Hazard, Logia's going wild are pretty damn strong when they've got the space and no worries.

    It depends on how he fights with a sword. He sword appears to be one hand only anyway, so if he was ambidextrious before he lost the arm, nothing is really affected. He probably adjusted accordingly. His defense and mobility appears alright to me as he blocked Akainu from killing Coby in the middle of a battle.

    I'm pretty sure Kizaru can move at the speed of light. He is light incarnate.

    It appears that some users forget about a singular clash that can split the very sky...

    Re: First Round 17. (Shanks vs Kizaru)

    It is a general opinion that somehow yonko are stronger than the admirals, I do not think so though, if they were Marineford would not exist. I know Shanks is adored by most fans, including me, even though I actually like Kizaru more. It will be an epic battle, since we know Shanks ca easily deal with logias, but come on Kizaru has one hax logia! It is the same with Enel's logia I think. So the DFs vary even within their types. Kizaru might be able to win this one, depends on a lot of factors, but Kizaru has to go all out, which in the series he has not done, yet ..

    Wow!
    I'm surprised that Shanks got that many vote.

    I mean, I know that technically he's one of the strongest, but Kizaru is not a push-over either!

    Re: First Round 17. (Shanks vs Kizaru)

    Yes, I was really surprised in a sense that Kizaru is damn strong, while we've seen close to nothing from Shanks. Even though I like Shanks he didn't seem that much stronger to me compared to Kizaru or other Admirals...
    Seems that Kizaru didn't have that many fans here.
