@el_directo_: @syncroniam: You are aware this logic is flawed to the core, right? Because Meliodas has to hold back against the Demon King and not use his own powers as a God so as not kill Zeldris? So the ABC logic of saying Acnologia > Demon King hence Acnologia > Meliodas, no matter how true or false the 1st statement might be, would be wrong regardless?
He's lasting long enough to use it, that's all that matters.
It's not as much a matter of lasting long enough than a matter of choosing too, given the immense side-effects and risks the use of the technique carry.
Yes, Shikai Yama's heat is still far above anything Hashirama has ever dealt with.
I don't really care about heat, but Hashirama has already handily dealt with far greater power when it comes to energy attacks. Yamamoto's flames have no impressive feats and rely exclusively on one statement of multi-town+ level power, and Hashirama has dealt with mountain+ level Bijuudama's, you do the math.
People acting like Bankai is something Yamamoto consistently uses as soon as the fight beguns is funny. Either that, or people genuinely think Shikai Yama would stomp Hashirama, which in turn would just be sad. Oh Comicvine.
