      Well, I'm watching it because I didn't want to read it. A lot of parallels with other sports manga, but it's fun to watch. I've also always liked boxing, but starting it was daunting to say the least.

      Yeah, don't spoil anything, I only have like a dozen or so episodes left :distracted

      I've been hooked on Ippo lately, but I'll get on it :noworries

      I still think the owner's decisions are dumb, but hell, conflict is necessary for proper mind games.

      Ahh, that's good. At the moment, his talent is enough to handle these guys with all the hype, so I assumed they were the best. Actually, I think they were stated to be the best, but it's not unusual to see that used as a hype tool in manga :distracted

      It's true that both are team sports; however, when Tokuchi is pitching perfect games or no-hitters, he's essentially doing it himself. We've seen that in previous years that Hiruma's passing was on-point, but he had inept receivers not catching them. A pitcher definitely has a better result with solo talent than a quarterback. We also saw that when motivated, Tokuchi's teammates are actually quite good (so far anyway) Just him instilling urgency resulted in them pulling tricky shit themselves, like that guy with a triple play.

      So I'd say they're pretty similar to Deimon. Both teams are at the absolute bottom, but they clearly have some talent to work with, it was just up to Hiruma/Tokuchi to bring it out.

      The owner genuinely confuses me though. The old losing team still draws, what? The third biggest attendance ratings in the league? Throw in a dynamic player that creates a winning team, and you could make ticket prices ridiculous and people would still show up. More than enough to cover even a huge salary for Tokuchi (which he clearly doesn't care much about either). The owner is just cartoonishly evil for no real reason :lmao

      Hiruma's method is better though, he'd just blackmail the owner like he does most people in a position of authority, then he doesn't need to bother with him stepping out of line :maybe

      It's true that Tokuchi did a better immediate job motivating his team though. Hiruma had more of a sense of progression when it came to his role as a leader from threats to trust, then again, he wasn't the main character either.

      Let's not go nuts here :pek

      Tokuchi plays mind games, but he utilizes superior ability to use them effectively. He's more like Clifford than Hiruma. The "I win as long as I can make you think I may play a certain card" mentality. When he's throwing exclusively fastballs with varying degrees of spin to adjust the angle, it's something only possible due to his own talent. His mind games wouldn't be effective if he wasn't able to pitch extremely well in the first place.

      Whereas Hiruma is "I win as long as I can make you think I'd never play a certain card". Both of them make their opponents second-guess themselves, Tokuchi with a straight face, and Hiruma with cackling laughter. But I still prefer Hiruma's style, because it really isn't facilitated by his own ability. Tokuchi is able to straight-up handle the best on his own, and that makes the psychological aspect less impressive to me.

      There are a shit-ton of parallels to draw between the two though, I especially liked how Tokuchi stalled for the bad weather to make them think he was trying to force a cancelled game, and used their desperation to get a win out of it. Reminds me of what Hiruma did in the Spiders game.

      I recall that phrasing. Been a little while, but I'll be picking it up again soon :noworries

      I remember you advertising One Outs with the time he smokes a guy in the head to get thrown out because he was "tired". It would have been better if you mentioned that it was a fake reason and he just wanted to help out his teammate who wanted to be a pitcher. Made him seem a little more Hiruma-like :maybe

      Hoping Ufo changes UBW's ending and comes up with one where Gil loses to Saber and not a pigdisgusting human :cat

      I'm pretty sure the scene was meant to look unintentional and that mishap was more than made up for by the datniggadry in refusing Caster's offer. Ufo produced that scene much better than in the VN, the latter wasn't nearly as impactful/memorable.

      They've made a few combat errors here and there but its something anime only viewers won't think twice about and I'm pretty sure the anime has been going for is a sequel to the F/Z anime i,e lack of explanation of Kuzuki's snake and CHURCH ON THE HILL :pek

      That aside, its 10/10. Stop hating, powerlevelfag. :disgustedgio

      Yeah, Ufo's making Shirou out to be more tsundere than Rin. Those scenes were cringe-worthy tbh but I supposed its rectified by them being extrapolated to make Caster's fucking shit up more impactful :superhiro

      This is why Kojiro is 2nd best Assassin :skully

      They couldn't waste their budget on explosions so they need to animate expressions instead :maybe

      Shinji made the right call tho. He retired from the war and 10/10 chance Kirei would've killed him right there.

      Ufo really went all out with the expressions. Shirou looked srsly pissed at archer :catblush
