Not only do they need to get into the right stance to pull off the move, iadio users need to put their sword back in their sheath, big sword users need to pull their sword back like a baseball bat,ect. They also to always do to put distance between them and the opponent to do it. Why is that,/a/?
I am also upset that two-handed sword users ALWAYS use the Gerbeck stance, even though the Kohler, Metzger and Bittner exists.
characters using rapier's as a slashing weapon
Doesn't mean it can't be we can use that blue haired girl's battle stance as well. A western style long sword and a small dagger is a rare combination these days for two sword style fighters despite it being a very realistic way to use two hands in battle.
It's a diversion to ward off Ilovemai but it won't hold for long
Yes, Mai's fighting style seems fairly realistic, since there was a fighting style involving a sword and parrying dagger in medieval and Renaissance Europe as well as one employing a katana and wakizashi in Japan.
Crap he's here! Through yes, that is a more practicle way to use two weapons at once. what about her real ones? the dagger looks a little too small for my liking. Besides cant she do some fort of projection magic like that dude from fate stay night
In the above scene she arms herself with what she can find. In this instance where she uses magic to create a sword and dagger they are indeed longer.
It's somewhat uncertain if she retains the ability to create weapons after the manga ends though, as she displayed it while she contained a fragment of the Azure, which was later removed from her.
Because children love it. I mean look, you can throw a punch or you can throw a "Hyperion-style: Water Fist". If you think it's stupid then stop watching Battle Shounen series.
There is no real reason, if they just want viewers to know the swordsmanship school/style being used then it could be printed on the screen as is done in Manga.
Though if it's a fantasy series they may have to shout something to activate the magic spell and there's also a number of parodies which have voice activated technologies.
While lighter swords did predominate over time and thus rapiers became the weapon of choice inn the Renaissance for duels, I've seen it mentioned that a normal sword could be paired with a parrying dagger.
And the Niten Ichi-ryuu style of swordmanship involved using a katana (which is a heavier slashing weapon) with a wakizashi on the off hand, so the idea that such a combination could be used doesn't seem implausible to me.
That's why hammers are the best weapons. Scythes are also acceptable.
Again, completely different swords. Katanas sliced because they were, all copypasta aside, made to be extremely sharp. A European broadsword chopped because it had a 6 foot tall 200 pounds fully armoured knight swinging it with both hands.
Katanas were more designed to be used for slashing since they were slightly curved. Still, is there a reason to think that longswords weren't sharp? After all, the Japanese had to spend so much time sharpening their swords because they were working with lower quality steel.
Putting a name on the technique and repeating it before performing helps the user remember its exact steps and stances faster.
And screaming before performing physical efforts helps with respiration (plenty of sports have the athletes constantly screaming).
So they might as well scream the technique name and do both.
>Scythes are also acceptable
>Scythes are farming tools not at all suited for real combat
Although combat scythes were a thing for a little while, they were exclusively used for sport.
Scythes were never actually used in live combat, because compared to longswords, spears and halberds and the like they're just complete and utter shite.
It's likely rooted at least in part in the "kiai" of kendo, where in order to score points you have to shout out the target of your strike as you hit.
For the Japanese, beating people with sticks and yelling shit come as a package deal.
To be fair, peasants who literally had nothing better to arm themselves with would technically use scythes. Though in that case they would reposition the blades vertically and turn them into crude polearms. So yes, scythes in their normal form were pretty impractical and not really used.
In terms of gameplay? No. She's like one of the top 5 characters in the game according to top Japanese players like Ogawa.
In terms of character design and personality? She's a personification of the waifu. How is that poor design?
Noel is a kawaii uguu moeblob and Dizzy is a kind friend to all living things type of character. Besides, they both have had figurines and bodypillows produced. They're quite obviously designed as waifu material and considering their popularity I think that they're very successful in that.
Noel seems to have it too. Then again she does display pretty stunningly dense behavior in general; e.g. her inability to realize that her food is toxic despite everyone around her telling her that fact and her acting like a small child that has been rejected when someone refuses to consume it.
Go fuck yourself, Hazama.
Although that reminds me, I bought a copy of one of the BB:AM BDs and they actually fixed a lot of the QUALITY. Like, I could actually look at the screen without cringing constantly. Except Terumi, I guess GONZO and their children hate him.
You know, I actually felt kinda sad when he "died". Without Terumi to kill her again, Shitty is now free to be an annoying shit
At least he also killed Platinum, though at least that insufferable shit was funny
Neither Hazama nor Platinum are dead. Also if Lambda can revive even though technically she's just an empty shell controlled by Nu's soul that already exists in the present in the actual Nu, so can Terumi.
Well technically she might be alright now.
She only had 6 months because her seithr nullification was essentially draining her life. But since Kushinada's Lynchpin has been activated, she probably will be much less affected. I mean, she previously lived in the post Dark War era and didn't drop dead from seithr overload so I dunno
And who's to say Kokonoe can't just science up some bullshit?
if it there is anything that I hate in anime is this miss conception that a scythe is good weapon, not even a war scythe, but a fucking grim ripper style scythe
Holly fuck, you are better armed with a butter knife than one of those
No it's just Noel and Celica.
Noel is just stupid, because she can't actually read a map.
Celica is literally unable to follow any directions at all, or even go somewhere she's previously been; it's as if there is a cosmic force preventing her from navigating at all.
Peasants were extremely poor. In a crisis they'd have to scrounge up whatever weapon they could. And a scythe with the blade pointing straight out could work as a poor man's polearm. I did specifically say that the blade's positioning would have to change for it to be useful.
Dizzy: purer than the driven snow, maiden of the grove, makes fast friends with May and Jellyfish pirates, turns Ky from edgelord whiteknight to proper husbando material, would go Justice2.0 if her loved ones were harmed/killed, only con I see are the striperrific clothes, but I-No still looks sluttier (by design)
Aria clone, bunny symbolism, bride powers over 9000, searching for her husbando, guns n' roses reference x2, sugar and spice and guns and ammo
what's not to like?
I miss Baiken tho
Perhaps Noel suffered brain damage during the destruction of Ibukido. That would explain a lot.
Well, she is five years old after all.
It also seems to be a recurring theme in Ragna's life that almost all the women in his life are all heart, no brains, with the exception of Rachel.
So help me if these continue their little childish bickering in blazblue four. Come on, now. it's been three games of these two going at each other like brats. Why can't Noel act that way towards Jin whenever he acts up?
Physically she's an adult. She shouldn't have the mind of a child. After all ν-13 just after emerging to the world seems more intelligent than Noel, insanity aside.
Probably because Jin seems to be barely holding back from murdering her whenever he's near her. Not even Noel is stupid enough to try and provoke him.
You know what's funny, before Remix Hearts I got the impression that Jin tried to act as neutral as possible with Noel in the game, he didn't like her but he didn't hate her either, and I thought that they kinda got along... kinda.
Honestly, I miss the days of the first BB game where everyone made jokes about how tsundere JIn was for Noel.
How's Ragna gonna explain to his sister that he has a loli looking girl, a clone of their foster mother and 3 clones or her always around him? ..Then again blazblue is confusing enough, I don't really know who likes Ragna in a romantic way and who likes him in a respect way.
What made you think that? Even in CT Jin had lines regarding Noel like: "Why...Why do you...! Why do you look just like HER!? That's right... I need to destroy you...! Just like... Last time... Die! Die! I don't want to look at you!"
Jin is admittedly a huge misanthrope, but with Noel he goes the extra mile.
Playable λ-11 and Celica, new lobby system, new stories for the characters introduced in CP (including gag reels).
Well to be fair, in CT he was crazy because of Ragna and the war (turns out there was more to that), so I tended to believe that before the war in the school part, he was saner and could tolerate Noel more, and at least play nice... kinda.
Now I know that's wrong, but I had that impression in CT.
Ah, you mean during his time at the academy. Fair enough. Though to be fair, he was indeed saner back then. He didn't try to murder her on sight after all.
Something else I find interesting is that, despite being ready to defend her friends, in that scene Tsubaki seems completely blind to Jin's death stare at Noel despite it happening right in front of her. Seems like her love for Jin makes her completely ignore all of his assholish behavior, even if it's directed to her friends.
I guess I was seeing things in Tsubaki vision, but Remix Heart kind of changed how I thought Jin and Noel worked back then, but then again I guess I was being too much of an optimist to think Jin could really tolerate Noel in anyway, even in the academy.
But anon, that's forbidden love, how can a christian like Ky do that?
Maybe he'd want to test what how good a lover his daughter found.
This screenshot seems pretty fitting for this sort of scenario.
In some of the flashbacks in CT Jin acted politely towards Noel. I guess that was before he realized her resemblance to Saya. Though since Remix Heart starts a week after the admission of Noel to the academy, I suppose that this period was very short-lived.
Poor Ky, he can't be faithful.
But is Dizzy really Sol's daughter, I thought that was just a theory?
I see, I guess it's kind of sad those two couldn't get along. Well Jin is a mess, so it can't be helped, right?
Academy era Jin always felt weird, specially that time he talked to Tsubaki about friendship when she had a fight with Makoto and Noel.
Elphelt's Instant Kill seems designed for NTR fans.
At times Jin acted polite but he did appear irritable most of the time. I don't think that he ever really was a nice guy. Though I suppose that he did make an exception for Tsubaki, as he did seem to be nice to her.
What's funny that Xrd basically was pushing for SolxElphelt, so she was going to NTR Aria, her original!
Also, I could see Jin trying to be nice for Tsubaki, that girl really brings the best out of him.
