Yo, thanks for the rep! It's crazy how people underrate Guy.
While we've locked horns in the past (and technically it was you who initiated those horn-lockings ), it's good to know some people see the truth. It's ridiculous how people fight to downplay Guy's feat and make him stronger by accident lol.
I've already posted this several times, but many people either ignore or refuse to accept this fact, backing it by saying "DB is a crap" or "lol that statement obviously wasn't counting Hiruzen" and alike. Or they bring the thing that Hiruzen fought Orochimaru, while Kakashi was afraid of him, despite Hiruzen died in the end and Kakashi was initially ready to fight Oro.
Interviewer : Ah, right! So did you decide to include Rock Lee in the story more because he became so popular?
Kishi : No necessarily. It's just what I heard. It kind of surprised me how popular he was, but it didn't necessarily lead to more plotlines with him in it, or anything like that. That's not to say that I didn't consider writing him in more or creating more stories about him, but the timing was never right, so I never had the opportunity.
