How do you detect killing intent, /a/? I know it sounds a little silly, but I'm on a quest to become a great warrior and I know that to do that you have to be able to sense killing intent. I've already mastered running with my arms stretched out behind me so this seems like the next logical step.
By being aware of what can kill you and what can't. If you're afraid of everything even such as eating because you may choke, that means you have the ability to detect killing intent. Acknowledgement of those fears is what it is you're looking for.
A very small percent of people are born with a powerfull will. That "passion" can be felt in a number of ways from bones inducing to "that guy would/could kill me."
It's a natural phenomenon that most people don't actually notice because they, like the mass majority of people aren't much brighter than animals. They feel it only as an instinct and generally react accordingly. At 6'4, and having followed the one punch man workout since my teens and been both blessed with a high IQ and good education I feel that I can offer an opinion of value. Especially since in my younger years, I worked with a gang, and subtlety influenced them with my brootal, animu, heavy metal way of life, causing much chaos in the process until they betrayed me. I often simply was just a delivery guy or bodyguard, but I always made sure to note people's reactions to certain things.
>How do you detect killing intent.
Just like animals, your body would become uneasy around a perceived threat and you'll go into flight or fight mode. You can see someone's intent to kill in their eyes and movements, because that person will have a stare you will never see a normal person have.
>not being the muscular meat shield who fucks the cleric's tight little pussy every night
>not inheriting your father's heirloom sword
>having lame spells instead of cool special moves
>being a nerd who can't detect killing intent or run with their arms stretched out behind them (super speed mode)
If you can't swing being a warrior, being a rogue with a sword is the only honorable alternative.
Bitch, by the time you're lv.30 you will have undergone such a intense mental and physical training that no corporeal being will even be able to penetrate your defences, only the might attacks of 2D will affect you.
By the time you're 50, 2D shall be conquered as well, for you will leave this mundane existence behind, as your waifu will come to pick you up to join her on her superior plane of existence.
Technique is a bit sloppy, though that was mentioned. Need more confidence in your strikes so that your body is firm like the sword itself. Battoujutsu is also only really good for a surprise, so speed can matter but not as much. Two sword techniques need some work to be useful.
>artificial power ups.
Warriors of the flesh will never understand this, but their power is the artificial one, since all physical stats have heavy caps after lv.30.
Sorcerers and wizards however, will only become stronger and stronger as time passes.
A true power indeed, since once a student of the arts embrace and commits oneself entirely to this path, only he himself will be able to forefit such powers, and, with the mental training involved, the resistance to anything corporeal will increase exponentially by each lv. gained.
Such training involves great periods of isolation and meditation, as well as rituals of magic, that being the reason why no one sees wizards wrecking havok on this uninteresting plane.
Once you reach the end of your training on this meaningless dimension, a wizard's true journey will begin.
But this is nothing mortals would ever comprehend, of course.
I've been training martial arts for 20+ years and the organisation I am a part of trains how to emanate and perceive killing intent.
At a certain level of training in the organisation you take a test where you need to sense a sword blow from behind and evade without getting hit.
Killing intent or sakki is dependent on three factors, the strength of the sakki from the aggressor, your sensitivity to sakki, and your ability to recognize sakki (as their are various levels of intent - not all of which involve killing).
Generating sakki is simple enough. Visualising killing someone and strengthening that visualisation through smell, feel and sound can create a strong enough feeling to make people feel the sensation - often by a hairs standing on end, a tickle at the back of the neck or an ominous sense of impending violence.
Sensing sakki is a little more difficult. The way I trained to sense it was to relax and empty my mind, letting my more primitive instincts take over and control my senses. The more you train to pick up sakki the more likely you are to sense negative intent.
The practice of sakki (both generating and perceiving) is to be able to strike down an opponent from behind without emanating any intent, or to sense someone with very limited intent.
I've done some research to verify a scientific basis for sakki and I read an interesting article recently. The brain generates very weak electromagnetic fields according to certain patterns of synaptic responses. These electromagnetic fields are used by the brain to speed up the transmission of information between different parts of the brain, but can also be detected by outside agents, in other words another brain sensitive to those fields.
The most serious experience of sakki once outside the dojo was when I was walking down a highway when I felt a sudden instinct to run or escape. I dropped to the ground immediately and just at that moment a car sped past trying to egg me.
I was lucky it was only a malicious intent and that it wasn't intended to cause serious harm.
The only time I've ever felt true sakki was in the dojo. It's a terrifying experience, a very primal fear that causes panic and triggers flight or fight response (or dear in the headlights).
It's used often in anime because it has deep roots in Japanese culture, but the concept is based on a measurable and repeatable response.
Many animals seem to be naturally in tune with their instincts and respond very effectively to sakki (from humans or other predators). This phenomena is often talked about by hunters who's prey suddenly get spooked for one reason or another when there was no sound or movement.

>tfw remembering that we actually did this in Taekwondo class when I was a kid, we had to detect an incoming attack from behind and react.
My life was anime all along.
I don't know /a/non, but I am pretty sure I got it since my bosses and coworkers refuse to look me in the eyes.
No physical defect here, except maybe a bit lesser than average looking.
I know often times I lose myself in extreme bouts of letting my mind wander but I notice a lot of the time my thoughts always are about violence in the end
I sometimes think about committing violent acts
Today at work my coworker said I had this really shitty vibe the other day when I came in and I remembered that my neighbors were fighting that morning, loudly fighting, and I thought, Gee whiz I'd really like to kill those guys. and those thoughts got more and more graphic as time went on.By the time I got out of the car my hands were shaking
Can one unconsciously generate sakki?
Yes you can, my arch nemesis is very gifted with this ability, such that even the most unobservant of people can sense his sakki from meters away, I daresay his sakki has evolved to a higher, more poignant form- byusakki.
However, I too have honed my technique for years, even the most observant of people can't notice my ultimate sakki at a centimeter's range, I have gone to the next level- kaisakki!
This Friday my arch nemesis and I shall clash in a battle of the ages, who will taste sweet victory? And who shall taste bitter defeat?
Wish me luck, guys!
