  1. [Chapter] Re: The Breaker: New Waves 164 Discussion / 165 Predictions

    I'm liking the implications of SUC being a well-run terrorist organization. (That is what SUC does, after all.) With Kaiser's backing, they'll become far more dangerous if they succeed in sacking...
  2. [Shounen] Re: History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi by Matsuena Syun

    Reading this chapter reminds me of why I haven't bothered with HSDK for quite a while now. Some inconsistencies are inevitable because Matsuena doesn't have full-control over the material. He has to...

    [Discussion] Re: Power balance inconsistency

    Welcome to the rampant power inflation of Part II, which has exploded several times over the course of the manga. I think the powerscaling would have remained conservative had Kishimoto opted to keep...

    Re: obito still alive

    One last thing to add for Tobi: When he was revealed as 'Madara', the plot ceased making sense at that point.
  5. Poll: [Chapter] Re: The Breaker : New Waves 150 Discussion / 151 Predictions

    I always enjoy seeing Sera in action. Like her design and the contrast she has with Jinie.

    Anyway, ChaoticKen makes several interesting points. I've always been intrigued with the sharp contrasts...
  6. [Discussion] Re: So who is going to defeat Madara and how are they going to do it?

    Deus ex machina. After the Eternal Tsukuyomi is destroyed, Madara will apologize for what he has done, and then proceed to revive everyone who ever lived and died. People like Neji, Jiraiya, Kushina,...
  7. [Question] Re: Why does nobody want Rebecca to join the Strawhats?

    We go through this every time a new arc occurs. 'X' is the next nakama to join!

    Look, Rebecca may be the next nakama. She'd fit in well with the Mugiwaras via powerscaling, as she has no problem...
  8. [Chapter] Re: The Breaker : New Waves 146 Discussion / 147 Prediction

    Not much happened this chapter. Naturally, Shioon defused the situation; Glasses is back (again!) for more asskicking; and Kangsung is now "indebted" to the Sunwoo Clan. Probably the most...

  10. [Chapter] Re: Tower of God Chapter 177 Discussion/178 Predictions

    Really falling in love with the storytelling. SIU is one of the better authors I've been reading lately. Besides series like Silver Spoon, Shingeki no Kyojin, and Kubera, Tower of God is one of the...
  11. [Theory] Re: Sunwoon Clan fall from its peak / Sosul's father's location

    This is short summary of what we know:

    The clan was weak, small, and insignificant when Kwon was a young man
    The clan peaked in strength when Sosul's father was the Gaju
    Kwon's daughter...
  12. [Shounen] Re: History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi by Matsuena Syun

    People have long been predicting "Kajima is talentless" and turned out to be right. The part about him having two masters is interesting, and it would make sense for the second master to be a...
  13. [Discussion] Re: Asspulls, plotholes, things you just don't get, and things that Kishi just hasn't gotten to yet.

    Some of the biggest asspulls and other nonsense include, but are not limited to, the following:

    Madara sealing bijuu in a matter of seconds when initially it took 3+ days to do it
  14. [Discussion] Re: Is FGT Ichigo/God Aizen a new normal level now?

    FGT Ichigo is a gamebreaker. That level of power will not occur again in the manga, only giving us an idea of what transcendence looks like. Then again, I could be wrong, however. Kubo is recycling...
  15. Poll: [Chapter] Re: The Breaker : New Waves 139 Discussions / 140 Predictions

    So Glasses is back for more, eh? 100% proved in that he is the official punching bag for Part II. Not that I mind of course...:lmao

    Outside of that, I'm surprised former MMA Chief is still alive....
  16. [Question] Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    I think it has a lot to do with the tendency of people to proclaim 'X is the next nakama!'. You seem a similar trend with Violet. We're due for 1 more nakama so Luffy's crew # evens out with...

  19. [Discussion] Re: Could Naruto and Sasuke eventually surpass Hashirama and Madara?

    Naruto would require the Kyuubi + Senjutsu fusion just to have a running shot at Hashirama, and that's not factoring in SM Hashirama. Naruto's current damage output is inferior when compared to what...
  20. [Chapter] Re: The Breaker : New Waves 114 Discussion/ 115 Predictions

    I'm still giving Mr. Glasses the edge here since he is strong enough to block/evade some of 9AD's attacks, and Shioon shouldn't be anywhere near that level at this point in the story. But stranger...
  21. [Chapter] Re: Tower of God Chapter 141 Discussion/142 Predictions

    [Question] Re: is naruto worse without the akatsuki? ??

    The problem is the incoherent storytelling. Akatsuki was set-up to be the main antagonist for Part II, but then Akatsuki was shafted by making Tobi + Madara the main antagonists. Part of it is pretty...

    [Question] Re: Was "that jutsu" ever confirmed?

  28. Poll: [Question] Re: Why is Naruto so unsympathetic as a main hero?

    [Question] Re: How strong is Naruto?

    It's hard to gauge Naruto's power accurately for several reasons: (1) the lack of 1 vs. 1 fights, (2) Naruto's opponents are usually gimped considerably whenever a fight erupts, (3) random-ass...
  30. Poll: [Question] Re: Will Sasuke's Decision Effect 'Naruto vs Sasuke'?
