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/?

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.

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.

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.
>>
>>121168556
A rapier and a long dagger, not a broadsword and a combat knife. A broadsword hasn't got the stabbing tip needed for the technique, and the modern knife is too short.
>>
>>121165281
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.
>>
>>121169316
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.
>>
>>121165281
Why are Dizzy, Noel, and Elphelt such poorly designed fighting game characters? The world may never know...
>>
>>121169782
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.
>>
>>121169198
That reminds me of FotNS, which would print the names of techniques on screen and the narrator would then dramatically announce them.
>>
>>121165281
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.
>>
>>121165281
It's cool as fuck

Those screams get me so fucking pumped

>>121165281
Battle shounen didn't really do it for me. But in some weird way, Precure made me welcome screaming special attacks.

>Scythes are farming tools not at all suited for real combat

Fixed

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.
>>
>>121169949
Because they are meant to be waifus, so just enjoy the fanservise and be happy.
>>
>>121175197
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.

>poorly designed

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?
>>
>>121175614
2 of them are impure and Noel is fucking 5 years old, That's not waifuism.
>>
>>121177538
Are you kidding? Noel and Dizzy were the most popular female characters in their respective franchises in a recent poll (before Elphelt was introduced). Why do you think that is the case?
>>
>>121177973
heroine power?
>>
>>121178063
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.

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?

>>121175618
Peasants had access to bows, axes, knifes pitchforks, even a broom would have more use as a weapon than a curved stick with the blade pointing to the user

>>121183429

And Litchi. Don't forget her

And Kagura too for being an obnoxious Gary-Stu jackass

Dizzy is also 5 year olds, and El simply cannot be impure since her programing will never allow her to love some one to the point they would have sex

I'm getting the impression that all women in BlazBlue have a sense of direction that's just a few notches short of Zoro's.
Except Celica, she's outright IS on Zoro's level.

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.
>>
>>121169949
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)

Elphelt: Aria clone, bunny symbolism, bride powers over 9000, searching for her husbando, guns n' roses reference x2, sugar and spice and guns and ammo

Noel >>121179685

what's not to like?
I miss Baiken tho
>>
>>121180522
Perhaps Noel suffered brain damage during the destruction of Ibukido. That would explain a lot.
>>
>>121183669
Ragna and Rachel will pretty much be ded when this ends
>>
>>121184011
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.
>>
>>121184011
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?
>>
>>121184662
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.

>>121184741
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.
>>
>>121183549
Wow, poor Sol, how will he get laid now?
>>
>>121185617
Go ask I No.
>>
>>121184865
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.
>>
When will CP Extend will come to NA?
Anything new confirmed apart of Mai being in the Story mode?
>>
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.
>>
>>121185758
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.

>>121185928
Playable λ-11 and Celica, new lobby system, new stories for the characters introduced in CP (including gag reels).
>>
>>121186371
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.
>>
>>121186455
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.
>>
>>121185617
There's Ky.
>>
>>121186725
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.

>>121188842
But anon, that's forbidden love, how can a christian like Ky do that?

>>121188842
Sol wouldn't NTR his own daughter.

Maybe he'd want to test what how good a lover his daughter found.

This screenshot seems pretty fitting for this sort of scenario.
>>
>>121188952
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.
>>
>>121189115
Poor Ky, he can't be faithful.

>>121188963
But is Dizzy really Sol's daughter, I thought that was just a theory?

>>121189268
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.

Also, I could see Jin trying to be nice for Tsubaki, that girl really brings the best out of him.
