      Yo Rocky. Ever wanted to debate animal kingdom bouts? I found a cool forum for it and it has plenty of activity.

      My dude! I accidentally romanced the teacher on my first playthrough so resorted to a harem as Takemi is my favourite. Might opt for Makoto in new game plus as I only reached level 5 with her.

      Yep which is why I felt like recommending it haha.

      It's a workplace drama pretty much tailor made for people in their early to mid 20's starting on their careers. Start is slow but the payoff towards the latter half is brilliant.

      Rocky, give Shirobako a watch sometime.

      I think it's something you'd absolutely love.

      The line "Orochimaru appeared to be the big spoon in the relationship" was hilarious, even if it does conjure up some rather disturbing mental images.

      Probably a good idea. But it was kind of my fault this time because I had left the charger in front of the screen between the keyboard- otherwise it would have been fine.

      But it will be nice to be able to visit the forums again.

      Somewhat busy. I could have been posting anyway but my computer screen got busted when family was over for my sister's graduation party and I didn't feel like driving to the store in another town to get it fixed; but since my sis is on campus and I got the password from my mom I can use her laptop.

      You?

      Hey, do you have the viz translation for the page before last in chapter 506 (the one where Kisame's talking about Asa Kujaku and Gai first opens the seventh gate)? Specifically, I'm looking for Kisame's explanation on Asa Kujaku's mechanics and he calls Gai a rare beast or something.

      Well there's this AWFUL poster called Rocky. He's legit the worst poster on the forum. And he always gets nominated. He thinks the Raikage is amazing, even though he sucks. Basically Rocky is just a basic bitch

      I think your question in the Jiraiya thread is interesting to break down, so i'll do that here. Let's pretend Jiriaya could just pop into SM, true not much changes for Jiriaya, but a-lot changes for Naruto. Why? Because if someone could just enter SM in an instant, than users wouldn't need to stand still to gather natural energy, and Naruto could maintain his SM throughout the entire battle w/o using clones (and therefore limiting himself). Naruto w/ SM that stays active the entire battlefield would have been way too powerful for that point in the story. So from a literary standpoint that mechanic had story importance, just not as much for Jiriaya.

      It was also there to build tension, and no it doesn't build as much tension to have Base-Jiraiya cornered and than pop SM, as it does if Jiriaya has to stall out his enemy long enough to enter SM and it comes down to the wire.

      My first thought when I read the title was "is it better to argue like Turrin or is it better to argue like Wiz?"

      Why would you think that?

      I really don't think it's hard to figure out what Kishimoto thinks in most instances. People make it difficult by overcomplicating discussions, by putting their own opinions on how strong a Jutsu and character should be, before how effective a Jutsu and character have been portrayed in the manga. For example in the 3T Genjutsu thread, people are like X should be able to do Y w/ 3T Genjutsu to defeat Z, but in reality 3T Genjutsu has basically been a non factor against High-Tiers in the manga, and even just skilled Jonin like Zabuza have hard countered it with minimal knowledge and preparation. Clearly Kishimoto's intent isn't for 3T Genjutsu to be some powerful triumph card against more skilled Ninja, no matter how much people think it should be.

      Again no offense but you do a similar thing with Ei's RNY and Speed. You think if Ei used that shit as effectively as he could he could wreck a-lot of people based on shown feats, and thus place him very highly, but if you look his actual track record in the manga, it's not nearly that good. He was fought to a draw by Beginner MS-Sasuke, and while I was willing to give him a pass for that, he is then used as hype tool for Minato and upstaged by Base-B, and than does not at all live up his title of Leader of the Gokage alliance, being upstaged by Onoki and Tsunade against Madara. To me that makes it clear that Kishimoto's intent for Ei's strength does not align properly with how strong, Ei's abilities seem to you.

      And I'm not saying your wrong, I also think Ei could effectively be a beast if he used his abilities more wise, but I think the same thing about a-lot of characters, it just comes down ultimately to whether Kishimoto allows that to happen IC. For example, imo Hanzo's poison breath is one of the most broken abilities in the manga period, but depending on the timing in which Hanzo decides to remove his mask, his poison breath could range from an nigh unbeatable GoaT ability to one that is a non-factor in most fights. Given the immense hype Kishi gives Hanzo, I tend to give him the benefit of the doubt that he will use this ability effectively when push comes to shove, but in reality the ability may be a non factor, and Hanzo could hold his hype for another reason entirely.

      I almost feel like NBD should be split into two sub forms, one where we discuss how strong characters are meant to be and who would actually win in a fight in the Manga; and another sub form where we discuss how strong characters should be based solely on shown feats and them utilizing those feats to the best of their abilities.

      To me that's absolutely what happened, Kishi forgot about Taijutsu and over compensated through Gai

      I like Gai, but I don't think his character arc is anywhere near as great as Jiriaya's, it's average imo, which is better than most Naruto characters, but well bellow Jiriaya's arc which is actually very good.

      I think Nagato is on another level than Jiriaya, I just think Jiraiya is on par with Minato, Itachi, etc.. (or slightly weaker in Minato's case).

      I think CQC is overrated in the NBD, and while I enjoy Taijutsu fighters too, Ei's Taijutsu isn't nearly as entertaining as Lee's or Gai's. As far as Kishi goes he definitely forgot about Taijutsu, and the overpowered Nature of 8th-Gate seems almost like his attempt to make up for it at the last second.Trying to magically justify it being anywhere near equal to Ninjutsu and Genjutsu.
