The return of Dark Ruler Ix-chan in less than two hours.
Best Sound Stage. I came buckets the first time I listened to it.
What is her MMA theme song?
Probably not, unless you watched the rest of Nanoha, or at least Vivid.
Not really. Play it on the 2nd monitor while you're doing something else.
You could probably watch the show and know enough just for this show alone if you didn't watch the other Nanoha series.
For instance, you probably won't get what Einhart actually meant by her mentor being in her heart.
And Vivio. But that was obvious given that >I beat her before but she got much stronger foreshadowing and the sky-high likelihood of jobbing.
I wonder if they take the opportunity and make Enihart freak at least a little when Vivio ends up in hospital.
>The outcome is obvious
I know, of course Miura is going to win
I wouldn't call it jobbing per se when Rinne is just stronger and is basically around Einhart's level.
>thinks Fuuka is going to win
Just like Vivio won in her manga, right? Rinne is Einhart for Strike!. Rinne is going to make it to fight Einhart.
Well, its obvious Vivio is gonna lose to Rinne.
Now, whether Rinne wins or loses against Fuuka, either way its gonna be a rather meaningful fight against Einhart.
>Rinne vs Einhart
>2 characters who, at one point, sought to be strong to protect the things that are precious to them
>Fuuka vs Einhart
>Classic disciple vs master fight
I just watched this and I spent the entire episode repeating the words "This is reddit, this is memes, this is reddit, this is memes..." under my breath.
I fucking hated it. I was writhing around on the floor in front of my computer for the last 30 seconds it was so painful.
>Ayy quirky reddit pop mahou shoujo meme im going to le magikaru the heck outta this xD lmao
If you liked it you're in the wrong place
That's already been the case since the bullies episode
Einhart is safely out of the plot, she is put aside.
Rinne will first show strenght by knocking out Miura, then there will the the "important duel" where she beats Vivio. Which will make the scene for her final fight with Fuuka.
I doubt Fuuka will win against Rinne.
At best she'll just put up a good fight and manage to beat some sense into Rinne, who reflects on what she has done for the past few years after the fight.
Then Rinne proceeds to fight Einhart, which would be rather thematic, with both of them having sought out strength to protect what they love at one point. Einhart pulling a Sieg and asking Rinne the same exact question Sieg asked Einhart in her fight would be very appropriate considering that Rinne never smiles in her fights.
The fights in Vivid involve simulated injuries. They don't get the injuries for real, but they still feel the pain as if they really did get injured. Then Sieg was stated to be able to casually plow through the system and give real injuries.
The fights here aren't the same as the intermiddle, they probably roll with a different set of rules.
>an accurate representation of what it feels like to wait for Ron's subs for this episode
Fuck this shit, they can't make Rinne able to beat Miura of all people.
Besides, even plot-wise, beating Miura and then going against Vivio, who is weaker than Miura, is retarded.
I hope she at least cheats or something.
Subaru busted her arms and legs and kept going like a unstoppable berserk running on rage fuel, and that was animated ind detail with blood and graphic nature. This is nothing compared to that.
They have a system to prevent real injuries there.
But this isn't the Intermiddle. This being another tournament that runs without that system is completely reasonable.
And even in the Intermiddle, Sieg was stated to be able to give real injuries even with the system running.
>This being another tournament that runs without that system is completely reasonable.
Why? Seeing how brutal it is Rinne could have easily killed somebody. Those are still children. A protectionsystem makes perfect sense.
And yet it shits onto the entire Nanoha cast. Kicking most of them out and letting the rest job to promote some new characters. How the hell is that supposed to attract the fanbase?
A device that gives a barrier jacket and all the protection that entails is probably the basic protection in this kind of tournaments. Also, getting injured is expected for athletes.
Extra shit like the system in the Intermiddle are probably for the tournaments that needs em, the Intermiddle is a general combat tournament where one can roll with shooting as well as melee, it getting extra safeties especially for the audience in case of shooting spells makes sense.
Its enough protection in the same way a teenage Nanoha got plowed through a sharp blade and Vita getting all bloody and also getting plowed through a sharp blade at the end of StrikerS on her way to the engine room.
Again, athletes, especially martial arts fighters, are prepared to be injured
This time is real.
She also coughed blood
What's chewing you? Focusing on the main Vivid cast and not introducing the older cast isn't shitting on them, dude. Rinne is literally Sieg lite 2.0, along with natural superhuman power. Losing to her is far from jobbing.
Are you telling me jobbing means any character who loses a fight because they are weaker?
Highly unlikely. Even if she won by a miracle, there's no way she's going to beat Einhart.
>Sub-champion losing against a character that appeared out of air.
>Not shitting on them
What is the other purpose of Vivid-Strike? (Aside introducing muh new Va's) To satisfy the ryona fetichists by showing their favorite girls being beaten?
Because fuck it's working
But fuck i really hope this anime tanks.
It's not hard to do when you're OP as fuck, especially when you can bypass defense and the system.
Jobbing is to use a previously established strong character for the new enemy to defeat and make them look more menacing , which is exactly what they used Miura for. What she did today is job to Rinne.
>But fuck i really hope this anime tanks.
It will. I doubt it is going to sell many BDs. What else is left? A few CDs maybe, no manga, nobody will give a shit about Rinne or Fuuka figurines.
>a character that appeared out of air.
Are you for reals? How in the world is Rinne a random character that just appeared out of nowhere for this episode? She's been hyped more than any other character in the show to monster level.
So basically, a weaker character losing to a stronger character is still jobbing. That's stupid.
>Highly unlikely. Even if she won by a miracle, there's no way she's going to beat Einhart.
Maybe not Einhard but Fuuka is going to be stronger then Vivio and Miura. And all of that with a few months of training.
Weak characters don't job because they are weak and can't make the enemy look dangerous, only strong characters like Miura can take the task.
We are talking about the girl that can kick small starlight breakers here, making her loss to the new girl is actually stupid.
Despite being a Miurafag I do not mind her loosing. The Vivid cast is big after all so some of the girls have to loose. It is just that its done in such a cheap way. The entire cast only exists to show how strong Rinne is and how great Fuuka is for getting even stronger then Rinne. It has nothing to do with Nanoha or even Vivid. You could have used entirely new characters for it.
Vivio recounts that it was a close match, and sounds more like she won by technicality rather than actually beating Rinne in a fight. Rinns has trainer to become stronger though and she is as Vivio saw in episode 3.
Introduced since the beginning != out of thin air.
Maybe you should learn what context means and apply it.
A strong character who is still weaker than the opponent. This is typical power scaling by using relatively strong characters to established powerlevel for stronger characters. it has nothing to do with trying to make a strong character look weak and lose on purpose or due to sudden CIS or PIS.
That's what I am wondering. Rinne was already established as #1 with Vivio winning more so on technicality. What's wrong that Miura lost?
If Miura won there wouldn't be much of a plot.
Because Miura is far better than Vivio.
>If Miura won there wouldn't be much of a plot.
The plot changes depending on how the writer wants, "wouldn't be plot" is an excuse for a bad writing.
>lost within logical reasons
Nothing to get upset about.
Since Miura should be fighting twice, her second fight is with Vivio. It's pretty much Vivio is going to win due to the direction of the story. But it's not like Vivio and Miura aren't closely matched since Vivid. Vivio has only gotten stronger in later Vivid chapters.
>Maybe you should learn what context means and apply it.
The context is what makes it jobbing.
I'm not a Miurafag, enjoyed the match and think the end result was not the best.
The other installments.
Been saying it since the beggining. Nothing obnoxious about it
since i kinda enjoy seeing my favorite girls getting beat up.But the inconsistencies are an insult
Inconsistencies, my friend.
Someone needs to do a compilation of faces
Not in this context it doesn't. You can't generalize any fight involving established strong/skilled character losing to an equally established strong character who gets hyped to be even stronger by the narrative. Moreover, jobbing has the connotation of losing due to PIS or CIS, where the strong character who lost could or should had been able to win if they didn't suddenly suffer from PIS or CIS.
I think it was pretty stupid, first Miura BTFO's Rinne and then AFTER activating her SLB-mode she gets near effortlessly BTFO herself.
No subs so maybe there was some explanation aside from DUDE TALENT LMAO but it seemed pretty nonsensical.
If I understood correctly she was using Vivio's bullshit defence
Well, Sieg's position in the powerlevels list is rather hard to choose since she never really fought anyone on Nanoha and co's level. She has mostly fought the Vivids.
She could most probably give the experienced fighters a good fight, but winning isn't that clear considering that they could fly.
Seeing Rinne eat her words at the beginning of the match to give Miura that ribs shattering attack is a pretty good feeling. I love that little shit but talking shit like 'I won't use grappling with you cause you don't do it' is condescending as fuck. Especially since Miura have a record of beating Vivio, the only girl Rinne has ever lost to. Can't wait to see her getting beaten to paste.
That being said this episode had really nice animation. Especially after this pic.
Miura won't be fighting twice. The image in >>149423358 Is just showing that either Miura or Rinne will face Vivio in the A block finals. Since Miura lost, it will be Rinne.
That's some seriously BS seeding, though.
Let's go with that. But seriously, in the mock battle between the old cast and new cast, the new cast put up a decent fight following mock battle scenario. Sieg could solo the new cast without any real difficult and still hold back a lot.
Are you talking about yourself or something? I didn't form a conclusion. You still haven't coughed up examples when you were the one who made the claim, and instead took the cop-out road.
To be fair, Sieg has a lot of advantage in melee, once she closes in its probably quite hard for them to get out of that range unless its the melee fighters like Signum.
As long as Nanoha and co plays keep away with their ability to fly, Sieg shouldn't be able to do a lot of damage to them unless she can do shooting spells.
Previous installments set certain things, somewhat in stone.
Vivid strike looks more like a fanfic, whereas the new characters are pandering under the excuse that both had a lot potential/talent.
Me giving you examples wouldn't be compared when you check the other sources.
You're saying a lot of things now, but don't give evidence to support your claims. I could say the same thing in reverse and just redirect you to the manga and previous series too.
It's not hard, just give a few examples of these "inconsistencies" that you're complaining about.
This probably is one of the best animated sequences in the franchise
That's an appeal to silence, but either way, my example i'm trying to point out is that Miura defeated Vivio (In the vivid manga). That establishes certain level on skill and strenght.
Then for purposes of plot on this "Spinoff" , That is diminished for the sake of making Rinne a "frighteting" opponent. Some people here pointed out that Miura jobbed in this fight.
Man /a/ just has too many problems and is far too asshurt about fucking reddit Jesus. This episode had a lot of problems nothing of which had to do with this boards obsession.
Careful, the cuteness might kill.
She didn't snap, she just became serious. It's the first time we see her get serious on-screen in a match. Miura isn't a push-over, so it's only natural that Rinne gave it her all. Rinne snapping is probably going to be saved for Fuuka, or Einhart, or in a post-U-15 match sorta like what Vivio and Einhart did in Vivid.
Not really. Miura won at the last time because she was a more skilled fighter, not because she was stronger. Vivio is fucking space Jesus, no one is at her level in vivid.
Besides we may don't know how their last fight is going to end in vivid but we do know Miura is ranked below Vivio in strike.
>EXTREMELY angry Rinne pummeling at INCREDIBLY hihg speeds
>Somehow doesn't qualify for "snapped"
Maybe you know something I don't since I haven't seen the episode, but that sounds like she snapped to me.
She didn't snap dude she was just trying hard to win. They've shown her to have an extremely aggressive fighting style since the introduction.
Also I believe she started using grappling at the end, after saying she wouldn't use it at the start. Basically showing that Miura was dangerous.
That whole sequence was cute as fuck
There were some interesting shots in this episode
Watch the raw. She wasn't extremely angry at all. She literally didn't snap. She was getting pummeled by Miura for a while, but the table was turned in her favor after she got serious. Maybe there's a trace of anger in that she was afraid to lose, but it's definitely a far cry from the kind of you're imagining.
Yeah everyone is invulnerable now
Want to make a character strong, just slap some impenetrable armor on them and claim it's "risky" even though it literally never backfires
SLB kicks, who cares, I got dude armor lmao
More like ignorance, either way you keep failing to provide evidence. You can't and shouldn't expect people to take you seriously, especially here when trolls trolling is a regular occurrence.
And what about Miura defeating Vivio in Vivid? Even in Strike! Miura held a higher rank in the last U-15. There is no inconsistency there. Rinne beating Miura when she has a higher rank isn't inconsistent too. And Miura jobbing is debatable and still that doesn't indicate inconsistencies at all.
>Rinne beats Miura
This show is so fucking retarded, it's so fucking dumb. Like, it's baffling.
She's probably going to beat Vivio as well because Rinne is stronger than Belkan kings for reasons.
People still shit on Force after watching this? This is the worst form of Tsuzuki ejaculation we've ever got and we're only about halfway through. Just fucking kill the franchise already.
A skilled fighter is better than a strong person, thats how Miura won her first fight against Vivio.
Lets not forget Rinne not only is talented but also has done nothing but train every time she is on screen.
If Rinne beats Vivio, it will completely subvert the message that her character is allegedly based on, that Talent is stronger than Training. Vivio's not exactly skimping on either, even though she's not geared for strike arts, but she should definitely have more raw power than Rinne.
If Rinne wins against Vivio it'll have to be because of some completely bullshit reason.
>Pulverized, not just broken.
How has Rinne managed to not get DQ'd? If you busted up somebody's bones so bad that they'd have to go through long-term recovery, you'd be lucky if you ever saw the hexagon again.
I mean, you can say "healing magic" as much as you like, but nobody's gonna want to fight somebody that will put them in intensive care 11 times of 5.
And yet NOTHING will come from it. In the end Rinne will be befriended and everything forgiven.
Remember how Fate had to go through a trial? How Hayate took responsibility for the Wolkenritter?
This is "waaah why are the StrikerS characters able to fight even with muh NanoFate" all over again.
The Vivids were never invincible. They were strong but plenty of characters introduced were stronger than them (Victoria, Harry, etc. not even counting Sieg).
Now people get upset that Rinne, who has been shown to be strong as fuck is also capable of beating them, just like plenty other characters, when she's fucking RANKED HIGHER than them. It's not based on any rational reason but solely on "REEEE THIS FOREIGN CHARACTER IS BEATING MY WAIFUS", except she's not foreign just because she's new.
When Miura (typical "low talent hard work" character) beat Vivio everyone was going "fuck yeah muh underdog waifu, get fucked vivio".
When Rinne threatens to do the same it's "HOW CAN SHE BEAT MUH HOLY EMPEROR SHE'S SUPPOSED TO BE INVINCIBLE" even though Vivio was never that good.
I can understand that people get mad seeing their favorite characters like Miura job because they're awesome but stop pretending like the powerlevels are suddenly "inconsistent" or something when really you just can't handle that a character you arbitrarily defined as "foreign" is actually strong.
This entire franchise is stupid as fuck when it tries to be anything resembling realistic.
>MMA fights fueled by magical girls that allegedly have protections easily ignore those protections on a routine basis and girls STILL manage to end up in stretchers all the time.
>Mahou Shojou Columbine is given a slap on the wrist and a "just change schools".
>CHOKING YOUR ALLEGED FRIEND in front of LITERALLY EVERYONE that could stop you is not only not punished, but nobody even RESPONDS.
>Rinne will STILL be "befriended" instead of being institutionalized.
If the rest of Nanoha is anything NEAR like this then the entire franchise is garbage. I've been reading ViVid and it's nowhere near this retarded on a regular basis.
The shitposters were right. Strike is stupid.
Whatever this little shit is doing, she's doing it legally. Fuck Rinne you're a fucking monster. And fuck you too Jill, to hell with your 'Rinne a prodigy that only appear once every hundred years'. You're raising fucking hell spawn.
>end your life
I see you dropped trying to sound serious, intelligent, and logical. Classy troll.
I think Fuuka will lose pathetically to Rinne but she'll pull a "never give up" thing that's going to seriously emotionally shake Rinne. I could see her just surrendering there, or otherwise she'll get BTFO by the Hegemon.
I'm pissed because there is ZERO reason for any system with actual thought put into it would let Rinne anywhere near any situation where she could throw a punch.
The girl should be under constant sedatives and anyone that would give her violent thoughts put as far away from her as possible.
You don't give aggressive talent with a poor mental state a way to "vent" that talent, you give them a better mental state.
Everyone in this series is retarded.
Nanoha's linker core was permanent damaged. How the fuck can you forget that significant detail. Physical injuries and broken bones are easy to heal, although the more extensive damage will take longer time to heal.
The moment you started dissing out arguments and evidence you lost your image of sounding seriouns, intelligent and even less logical.
This anime is shit, i can see no way you could be defending it if not by a troll or an individual with a very shit taste.
Hayate got stabbed by a OP loli enemy leader. The damage is on a whole other level. But bed rest is nothing and is done to recover her strength more than it is to heal and close up the wound.
You know nothing about teenage psychology, do you?
And yes, I do know about martial arts practices. Anywhere that isn't some strip mall Burger dojo will instill philosophy along with their martial arts, which includes WHEN and HOW it is acceptable to use them, ESPECIALLY if that dojo/dojang caters to kids and teens.
There is a reason we don't put 12-year-olds in highly-dangerous MMA combat IRL, and it's not because we don't have healing magic.
No, because Signum/Nanoha/Fate were always shown to be the strongest of the strong, so much that in StrikerS the villains avoided direct confrontation because they were very obviously outmatched. So a character suddenly showing up that can beat them actually IS bullshit, unlike in Vivid, where the characters ARE NOT the strongest, so someone capable of beating them is 100% plausible.
>criticizing bad arguments and lack of evidence is bad
Do you know how stupid you sound? I doubt it. A troll wouldn't care after all.
>I don't like it so it's shit and you trying to prove my dumb arguments and BS claims wrong hurts my feelings
Well, at least you're done.
Remember lads, Nanoha powerlevel is bullshit.
That's not stupid. You see it in card games all the time.
Hell, at the last YGO worlds tournament, the world champion went 1-2-0 to a weird rogue deck in the first round, but ended up winning the entire tournament because he went 2-0 or 2-1 in every other match.
Points are more important than actual match outcomes. If Vivio only won by a single point, then it's probably likely that a lot of her other victories followed a similar line.
They better do it that way or have Fuka win using pure heart. Rinne has talent and years of hard work if Fuka wins because she was better with only a couple months of training it would prove Rinne's coach right about talent always being better than hard work. If the fight isn't Fuka taking everything Rinne can give her and still standing proud at the end VS will offically be shit.
>Miura defeating Vivio
This is your main argument and it provided no insight and reasoning why you cry inconsistency. if you want to be taken seriously then stop sicking around and explain yourself.
Most professional fighters have a background of street fights and violent behaviour because thats literally the only kind of people dumb enough to get contusions for a living.
Fuuka is going for the tank route. Reminder that last episode she was wondering about how heavy a serious hit by Rinne is and how she is gonna become someone who can take all of that. Also, since Huracan is specialized in defensive and recovery magic like Teo, we are going to get a scenario where Rinne beats Fuuka to a bloody pulp and the later would just recover and stand up again and again.
>Miura beat Vivio in Vivid
>Miura has a higher rank than Vivio in Strike!
And where's the consistences? Stop dicking around and give a straight answer instead of answering with a question.
Your point is valid, but unrelated to the point I made.
The premise is retarded if taken to any realistic measure. It only works if the world it's operating in isn't realistic in the slightest.
More like you're being dumb and inflexible to how tournament scores and seeding words. Rinne debuted a year and a half ago and won every match she was in except one, which was against Vivio. So that's 58 wins and 1 loss by the time of episode 1.
What's actually cheap is that Miura had already two downs and the upper hand during the whole battle without activating her power-up, then suddenly Rinne became able to defeat her through bullshit, this despite Miura activating her power-up.
They repeatedly say that Rinne's strikes are very powerful. One hit is all she need to shake Miura up and start gaining advantage. Of course if she used grappling since the very beginning the fight would be very different.
Too bad that isn't what happened. I put your argument in context to show zero inconsistencies and still you act retarded. I'm the one who has been repeatedly questioning you and demanded you to make arguments to explain your incomplete reasoning. All you do is avoid them by playing dumb and retort back with a question.
According to Jill Rinne just used her powerful built and train like mad for defense so she can take hits. That one is pretty bullshit because it only appear in this episode but still makes sense I guess.
Not shrugged, she blocked it with her superhuman strength on top of being reinforcing her body with magic.
And Miura kicks aren't?
Are you seriously saying Miura Bakken, which is a fucking Breaker spell, is not stronger than simple punches?
What's worst, Miura had shaken Rinne before with much less but somehow this did nothing.
What's the power-up even do? Speed boosts and power ups in games tend to throw people off (especially in racing and fighting games), because it throws off your typical placement and timing ability.
You can actually end up being WORSE with the power up than you were without it if you're a skilled player.
Breaker is useful for breaking magic, if Rinne is still strong without magic then Breaker is useless against her. And yeah that part is pretty bullshit but considering Rinne was unfazed through the first two DOWN maybe those attacks were far less effective than it seems.
I don't care if they say she trained to be a tank, Bakken is the strongest offensive shit we've seen outside of Sieg's attacks. Literally doing 23k damage in a simulation where people have 15k life iirc.
It makes pretty much no sense that you can flat out block it.
Nah but you see Rinne's secretly a genius and capable of making Shinkirou-style barriers that perfectly block anything.
Either that or Rinne is the PC version of a Lv 9 CPU in Sm4sh.
I think it's more likely there wasn't enough ambient magic to absorb and her own output didn't deal enough damage.
The only time she one-shot somebody was against Micaiah and she had dropped all her defenses prior to that.
>Bakken is the strongest offensive shit we've seen outside of Sieg's attacks. Literally doing 23k damage in a simulation where people have 15k life iirc.
Bakke is the strongest when used at the end of a fight where a high number of magic spells are used because like Starlight Breaker, it gathers all the scattering around magical energy to the user. In a martial arts fight where magic is only used for enhancing attacks and defense, I doubt there is that much magical energy on the field at all so it makes sense that Bakken in this fight is not as strong as the Bakken used in the Intermiddle.
Thing is, we don't know how strong it would be against opponents who guards against it. Miura landed her bakken ultimate twice so far against Vivio and Micaiah. In both cases, neither was able to put up a defensive guard to block it, they took the full attack with their bodies.
>antagonist beats the whole party to prove she's strong
Jesus christ this is Dragon Ball tier writing. What the fuck is this show even.
>I'm 14 years old, the same age as Einhart-san
And I thought you guys were 13. Still,
>raising all those death flags before AND during the fight
You only have yourself to blame, Miura.
I don't know why I have to remind people that a Breaker is a very specific type of spell every time a discussion about it comes up. It's one of the few things that actually has a description of the mechanics in the anime.
She did it to rise some Fuuka flags
I say it was worth it
>I won't be using any grappling or throwing techniques in this fight
Damn it, Rinne, now you're a liar too.
This is a surprise to no one if you read ViviD. ViviD is basically "Let's just throw new characters at the party and show how powerful and strong they are before they are forced to job": The series.
Strike continuing this should be nothing new. The fact that Strike has been rather light on the original characters do not steal is actually a breath of fresh air.
Next is Vivio's episode, can they get away with not mentioning her family whatsoever next week or will Nanoha finally appear
in a montage, without lines.
If Vivio can defend against it with two arms then there is no reason why Rinne can't defend against it with one arm. And again, there is not enough magical energy in the ring for Bakken to be really destructive.
Rinne is stronger than Miura, that's your plot.
>If Vivio can defend against it with two arms then there is no reason why Rinne can't defend against it with one arm
not him, but Vivio BEAT Rinne, so this makes no sense. Are you saying Rinne can easily take Vivio on one-handed despite not being able to take Vivio on with two?
>but Vivio BEAT Rinne
By points. After she got a down on her, she probably just ran around, dodging every attacks until the time ran out. The point is that if someone who is known to have shit defense like Vivio could take on Miura's "not at its final form" Bakken then it makes sense that a tank like Rinne could do it too.
Ranks better than Izetta in stalker but that's not saying much. Don't know how the disc will perform, it's only 4 vol. with 3 episodes per volume instead of 2 like usual. Price can be considered on cheaper side too for 3 episodes per volume.
What difference does this make? She still beat Rinne. Fair and square.
Are you saying that what Rinne couldn't do with two hands, she could suddenly do with one?
Or are you going to argue that 'by points' suddenly doesn't count, because it didn't end with Rinne in the hospital?
>she probably just ran around, dodging every attacks until the time ran out.
This is the definition of retarded headcanon.
What the fuck does this even mean? Has Vivio EVER fought this way? You know that in most martial arts contests, stalling for time is a penalty, right?
Disk sales do not matter so much. KR pushed the new VAs hard so they will expect some CD sales. Merch sales will probably be low since Nanoha fans do not care much about Vivid and for sure even less about Rinne and Fuuka.
The thing is Rinne was being trashed with far weaker kicks and punches before. She then somehow tanks a kick far stronger than anything that came before, that's what feels cheap to me. Almost as cheap as when the shonen hero defeats the villain by the power of friendship.
This is really applicable to ViviD Strike. I am glad you made this post instead of, I don't know, realizing how retarded this entire argument is.
Want to make a real argument as to why what Rinne couldn't do with two hands, she could suddenly do with one hand tied behind her back? Because you haven't put a single argument forward about why Rinne would suddenly go beast mode.
>My headcanon about Vivio being a coward and running around the ring to stall the clock is now more applicable than what we have observed through all of Vivid and all of ViviD strike.
Either stop being retarded or fuck off.
Decently, I guess. They are pretty chill over there. No one was freaking out or making a shit storm over Miura losing.
>Are you saying that what Rinne couldn't do with two hands, she could suddenly do with one?
>Or are you going to argue that 'by points' suddenly doesn't count, because it didn't end with Rinne in the hospital?
What the hell are you talking about? I'm saying that Rinne tanking against Bakken with one hand makes perfect sense because Vivio whose defensive power is lower than her could also do it with two hands.
Well then number for CD isn't out yet so can't say anything on that front. Ogura Yui is hardly new though, she already has established fanbase. Minase is the newbie when it comes to CD. I don't remember them announcing any merch so yeah maybe no income from that front.
>What the hell are you talking about? I'm saying that Rinne tanking against Bakken with one hand makes perfect sense
>because Vivio whose defensive power is lower than her could also do it with two hands.
So, re-iterating. You think that Rinne could do with one hand against Miura when she couldn't do it with two-hands against Vivio.
Ha. The only one allowed to beat Einhart is Sieg.
She took all those weaker punches and kicks with her body while against Bakken, she got her guards up perfectly.
>You think that Rinne could do with one hand against Miura when she couldn't do it with two-hands against Vivio.
No. I'm saying that Bakken is not that powerful. Vivio could defend against it with two hands so it makes sense that Rinne could defend against it with one hand. I'm not saying anything about the fight between Vivio and Rinne. Is there something wrong with your reading comprehension or maybe my writing skill is just that shitty?
>No. I'm saying that Bakken is not that powerful. Vivio could defend against it with two hands so it makes sense that Rinne could defend against it with one hand.
>Miura beat Vivio
>No. I'm saying that Bakken is not that powerful. Vivio could defend against it with two hands so it makes sense that Rinne could defend against it with one hand.
not even talking about vivio for a second then: why was she having such a hard time before and then suddenly managed to block, with one hand, her powered-up form?
also your reasoning that she 'got her guard up perfectly' is complete headcanon horseshit. stop trying to drag that into the conversation.
You're not up to date with the manga, aren't you?
She was struggling and thrown to the ground while having her guard on by Miura's normal kicks anon, just taking because she got her guard on isn't as plausible as you make seem to think.
Miura died for our sins
I'm guessing the Force incident is happening right around this time.
That kick looks like it managed to land on her head. Her guard was thrown off because of the gut punch earlier. Miura got in a number of clear hits while they were trading blows.
We definitely had a couple, or rather one super autist. Actual detractors are few and in-between who express opinions and move on. They aren't autistic. Luckily, the sperg autist hasn't been on to lurk this thread all day like he did for the last two weeks.
Oh it is easy to dislike it if you are into it for the old Vivid cast (like me). So seeing a (subjective) unsympathetic character beating then and giving them quite horrible injuries can make you dislike Strike.
Meanwhile, Rinne got her arms up against Miura's Bakken kick perfectly.
Objectively unsympathetic character.
>oh my god muh bullying
Is not a reason to be acting like this a year after the fact.
She is genuinely a psychopath. If muh bullying wasn't the trigger that set it off, then it would have easily been something else.
She struggling against her normal punches and kicks with guard on is seen a couple of times. She not even struggling again Bakken afterwards is definitely something that shouldn't happen.
I can still mock Rinne's undersized leg.
Is it this good?
She was still trying to trade blows at the beginning. After Bakken was activated, she focused completely on defending and waited for a chance to counter.
Rinne has no confidence in taking on Bakken without proper guards. She even desperately resorted to grappling to avoid taking Miura's last Bakken kick.
I don't like this show very much. Is it really going to juts be one big tournament arc?
Tournaments are what shounen shows do to stall for time. It's what Gundam and Dragon ball devote a season to when they don't want to go through having a big, overarching plot and just want something cheap and dumb to pump out.
Is that really the appeal here?
Oh well, a couple of pulverized ribs is nothing. Miura is a tough girl, she can take it. I'm more worrying about Vivio in her next fight with Rinne. I hope she gets her bullshit Sacred Defender up perfectly or else, she is really gonna die or become crippled in this match.
Don't you know about sport anime, anon?
That one in the pic was a kick she defended against perfectly though.
>She even desperately resorted to grappling
She did that after the kick, when a second one was coming.
>She did that after the kick, when a second one was coming.
Yes. She was able to block the first one because Miura took like a good 5 seconds to set it up so Rinne got all the time she needed to prepare herself. She got no time to do so against the second one and knew that she would get rekt if that one hit her.
So? If all of Miura's attack connected to Rinne then Miura couldn't have lost. My point was Rinne blocked some of Miura's attack but not all of them, that's why Rinne ate the dirt twice from Miura normal attacks.
But Einhart's official profile says that her BFF is pic related.
You are never getting one, Vivio
Then she uses a destructive as fuck attack and somehow she lost. She also had an overall boost in everything, but somehow couldn't keep up against the girl who was being pushed back without her boost.
But it did absolutely nothing, that's the thing.
I was talking about the other person in the picture.
Fuck it, PICKED UP.
Great, yet another edgelord to add to the pile.
That's a lie.
Fuuka is cute and has a puffy vulva. She's also very flat and doesn't grow up.
We don't need Miura
Again, Bakken is not that powerful in a fistfight where very little magic is involved. It didn't have much effect when Vivio blocked it either, all it did was pushing her back a little bit.
In the Intermiddle, the field was filled with magical energy from all the previous magic fights that took place on it. Miura and Vivio was also throwing magical balls at each other for a while before getting in close. In this tournament, though, there are not much magical energy to gather. Remember this scene in the Intermiddle? Miura's activation of Bakken in Strike triggered no warning and looks really weak in comparison.
