    40 ton feat is a special case though, because every person that has seriously debated DBZ (as seriously as you can debate fictional characters at any rate) knows it is crap.
    Yes but their rule in the Goku preview was ''Anything from any official material that doesn't contradict the original manga''. Declaring the 40 ton rule as crap would contradicts the manga and breaks this rule, and even taking a forum post into account for this would be taking in an unofficial source that contradicts the manga, might as well take Fan fiction into account.

    If anybody is interested one of the producers, researchers and commentators of Death Battle made a point of answering some of the comments in another show. It begins at minute 15:39.

    My mistake, it wasn't slower than humans. We have people who run 100m/10 seconds, so it's more like stating that Kuro is only around twice as fast as a human while blatantly doing things quite faster.

    I will choose this moment to point out grabbing only the high ends doesn't really prevent anything. Inconsistent high end showings are a thing.

    Hence why I pointed out Morrison.

    Nah, the manga itself contradicts the 40 tons. At every moment.

    Kind of like how a dialogue box saying there are 6 eggs when there is only 5. The dialogue box is obviously wrong in that case.

    Or that Flash 'at almost the speed of light' feat that is blatantly faster.

    Saying it is wrong is just pointing out the obvious.

    Kind of like saying the Earth isn't flat.

    Not really interested in Death Battles to be honest.

    The last anime I had any real interest in watching before those two was Trigun some 4 years ago, though I read the Death Note Manga and saw a couple of anime movies here and there and rewatched my favorite anime, Cowboy Bebop.
    Er, well, the last animes I watched were Accel World and Sword Art Online, actually.

    Try Baccano. Also, To Aru Majutsu no Index.

    ...It feels like I always recommend the same anime all the time. >_>

    The actual quote:

    D: I have a question. How quickly can Captain Kuro run 100 meters?

    O: To tell you the truth, it is extremely hard to measure his speed correctly, but I don't think it would take more than 5 seconds. Think of it as around 4 seconds. Whoa! That's a world record.

    So, it's apparent he wasn't even trying to go for a hard-and-fast number.

    Akame Ga Kill!

    Well, that's surprising. Didn't expect Kurome to get angry that Bors died.

    Caught up on Berserk from the Sea God arc to the current Fantasia arc

    1) Mr. Miura, please take a break from Idolmaster. Schierke is cute, but I don't think Isma exists for any other reason than certain fixations.

    2) Interesting that Griffith has made his kingdom a heaven by turning the rest of the world into a fairytale hell.

    Two new Nanatsu no Taizai chapters are up.

    In them we get a glimpse of Meliodas' sad past, Elizabeth gets some courage, we find out that the Sins are weak against illusions and what happens when two Sins duke it out seriously (they destroy the land around them) and we get to see Ban's rape-face.

    Honestly, I'm not certain that this isn't just more of Meliodas' trolling.

    His thought bubble indicated that he'd realized what was going on, then he sees a conveniently giant sized dude and tries to kill him?

    I'm surprised Kurome didn't notice that Chelsea was in disguise.

    Ah, maybe it's because she was second-rate compared to Akame.

    We'll see but to me it seemed like the illusion didn't just mess with one's senses, it also messed up rational style thinking to prevent smart people from realising what they're dealing with. But we'll see.

    this is technically a fanwork, but since we talked about death battle...

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7262793/...es-of-the-Past

    Ashes of the past is a pokemon peggy sue fic. ash is sent back to the first day of his journey, because cyrus tried his remake the world plan again after he left sinnoh.
    The chapter i linked to is them attending a movie the characters made: Unlimited Blade works, with the characters played by pokemon. XD

    And Before you ask, Mewtwo is gilgamesh

    Has anybody here read 07-Ghost? I started reading it last night, and I'm not sure if I was just tired or what, but it was really confusing.
