    [Predictions] Re: Doflamingo's Fate

    Whether he escapes or not, DD will lose his Shichibukai status. There's no way he can get away with putting everyone in Dressrosa under the terror of the bird cage and the ten years he had plenty of...
  2. Poll: [Predictions] Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama... - 3rd edition

    Lol, you know all the available options are unlikely when people are genuinely discussing Caesar becoming the next nakama.

    Seriously though, he's a conniving man who discarded his own men, stole...
  3. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    I think the translations drastically alter one's perception of that scene. I only read that Naruto had difficulty moving and that they would both eventually die, not that Naruto would die from...
  4. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    Naruto vs. Sasuke will invariably come up since either side will try to justify how the final battle panned out due to the prior events. It makes sense since this is a thread about the victor of the...

    [Fantasy] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    Naruto was continuously exhausting himself too. The bijuu chakra simply prevented him from fizzling out quickly, given that he was doing multiple things at once: supplying chakra to the shinobi...
  6. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    The more I read these recent posts, the more my opinion has changed. I used to think it was more of a draw with that symbolic victory going to Naruto, but I now think that's an understatement. It all...

    You don't represent all Sasuke fans. Defensive much? In all fairness, there are people who are irrational about either Sasuke or Naruto. Claiming otherwise with only yourself as an example isn't...
  8. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    Did you even read what he said? See below. It's that whole physical tie and symbolic victory for Naruto thing. Which is what the story obviously indicated if you don't over-think it.
  9. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    The real issue lies with either side emphasizing Naruto or Sasuke's handicap as if to tip the scale whichever way they'd like to see. Or whichever way makes them feel better. The scene didn't present...
  10. Poll: [Predictions] Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama... - 3rd edition

    Yeah, none of the current options are obvious. I'm not expecting anyone in the Dressrosa arc to become a nakama. Bart just strikes me as too much of a fanboy to put himself on equal footing with the...
  11. Poll: [Predictions] Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama... - 3rd edition

    I'd be surprised if Kinemon or Momonosuke joined. Sure, they bond well with the crew and exhibit some of the key traits of nakama (reliability, loyalty, etc.), but Kinemon seems more like someone who...
  12. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    Then there isn't much left to debate. Although to be honest, debating power levels and hindrances would make one think you're trying to justify one character's capabilities over another, especially...
  13. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    It's "overemphasizing" when people use Sasuke's handicap as if to prove he should have been stronger than Naruto. This may not be what you're trying to prove, but it's that implication that I was...
  14. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    Well yes, Sasuke was at a disadvantage if you compare his Rinnegan to the optimal form of the Rinnegan. I saw what ninjabot was saying, but we're comparing Sasuke's advantages/disadvantages to...
  15. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    Er.. everything you're saying "falls apart" simply because you're assuming Sasuke's competence with the Rinnegan exclusively determines his ability. It's not just the Rinnegan. He was using the...

    ... no, I'm not trying too hard for anything. It looks like you'll only be convinced that he wasn't handicapped if he demonstrated most of Nagato's techniques. But this is ridiculous because the...

    If you look at the same information with other circumstances in mind, then the conclusion is the opposite of what you're trying to prove. Four out of fifteen abilities is nearly a third of the...
  18. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    @ninjabot - A lot of this argument about who is stronger at full energy, who has more advantages, who is better at strategy, etc. is entirely fruitless for the purposes of the final battle. Naruto...

  20. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    If anything, Naruto was usually the one to demonstrate utmost creativity during a battle. Sasuke could do the same, but Naruto was noteworthy for it. Even if the battle had been more strategic, they...
  21. [Discussion] Re: is it just me or was the Naruto and Sasuke, actual, fight a draw?

    Yep, it was a draw in terms of the outcome, but it was more of a symbolic battle than an indication of who was actually stronger. So, I don't know... even if you rooted for Naruto and it didn't pan...
