@socajunkie: @xebec: That's not what happened. Zoro wanted to break Kaku's iron body with his next attack. However, instead of just tanking it with tenkai he instead uses tempest kick "dragon slice" to negate Zoro's attack. He then says that he decides whether to use tenkai or to negate it with something else.

Sounds like Kaku is mocking Zoro when he says " would you have been able to cut me if i were metal?" Becuase again wanted to break Kaku's tennkai.

doesn't really matter, it still sets up the fact that kaku is not gonna maintain tekkai all the way to let zoro read his defense and cut through it

throughout the fight we see zoro and kaku clash multiple times, or zoro straight up hitting kaku, and he doesn't slash kaku because he can't read whether he's gonna use tekkai or not (it's notable that whenever Kaku uses tekkai during the fight, he name drops it)

the one time he did cut kaku it's cause kaku dodged instead of swapping between them so zoro's attack connects

I'm going to be honest, the datebooks are your best bets to scale, even the Boruto chapters are dubiously ftl at best.

the problem with databooks scaling is that people take hyperbolic / vague statements at face value when those statements have no on-panel feat to match them (eg: the notorious A relativistic lariat statement; it would make no sense for A to be rel/rel+ considering he gets outsped by Naruto, a version of Naruto that's SEVERAL tiers weaker than his EoS self who could barely dodge a SoL attack, which is a dubious feat in itself considering naruto has some level of precog due to sage mode and it's unclear whether he dodged the attack or madara's neck swing etc.)

i'm not saying this is a Naruto problem only, ppl run with vague databook statements all the time (another good example is bleach)

not to mention a lot of these translations are shaky at best and u have to go off of what someone on twitter or reddit says "is the the correct translation" and whatnot

not even hemsworth's fault tbh

my main gripe with the movie was the weird as fuck cutting and editing

like his introspective dialogue with Star Lord at the start of the movie felt ironic/parody-ish at first, until you realize they're actually serious and it's supposed to be a heartfelt moment; the reason it didn't land is how insanely early in the movie it happens, with 0 setup at all

that's how i would describe most of the faults of the movie: rushed, and it's mainly due to how it's edited

there are palpable voids throughout the run of the movie that are 100% cut scenes, and you can feel their absence

@enemybird: Mate, if there’s anything in One Piece that bothers me, it’s Buggy taking Mihawk’s slashes. I don’t care about the retroactive implication and evidence that black blades don’t have the anti-DF properties that conscious Haki infusion does; it still feels wrong and disturbs my soul.

While we are on the topic. If black blades are the pinnacle of swordsmanship, is enma a buff over shusui or did it just make Zoro use more haki? Something to think about I guess.

Mihawk will hold back and fight people (i.e east blue Zoro) who have no chance at winning. He did not one shot instead opting to lower himself to the smallest blade he could find. I think if we use that we can excuse why he didn't just blast through everyone at mf.

As for Buggy he may not have known about his DF and thus used a lazy attack that would have killed pretty much any fodder with the exception of Buggy.

He didnt really seem to know about Jozu either.

@enemybird: Enma forced Zoro to not only use more Haki but subsequently force him to control his Haki flow better or else he’d die. This had the great benefit of increasing his AP and Haki regulation. It's interesting to note his growth from Wano, where Enma wouldn’t stand for Zoro just using ACoA and demanded he use ACoC to not hold back, to Egghead, where Zoro has nigh full authority and chose to lower his level to ACoA against Lucci, as that made more sense for a battle of attrition as he knew he needed his ACoC reserves against stronger foes on the island. Enma accepted it. Shusui had more weight and increased Zoro’s general AP as a result, but it didn’t compare to the upgrades Enma provided, IMO. Moreover, narratively, Enma has to emphatically be above Shusui because Zoro is moving towards endgame One Piece. Black blades are the peak of a sword’s base durability and AP, it seems.

Agreed. Canon proof is Mihawk’s "hunting rabbits" statement.

I agree again regarding Buggy and Jozu. In the latter's case, I’ll say I think he knew of Jozu’s existence given Hawk-Eyes had knowledge of Vista, but I don’t think he knew the specifics of Jozu’s DF and Haki level based on the reaction to the Commander stopping the slash.

the old ass "mihawk didn't cut jozu" argument was resolved before MF imo

during EL, while zoro fought kaku he tried to use haki (breath of all things) to bypass his Tekkai, but kaku kept switching between using Tekkai and not using it, so when zoro was tuned in to cut his iron body, because he struck against flesh his swords didn't cut Kaku

it's literally a matter of the swordsman choosing what to cut or not; mihawk lunched an attack to cut Whitebeard, made of flesh, not jozu made of diamond (also worth pointing out that iirc jozu did not tank the attack, he blocked it with his fists then redirected it upwards)

no

80% of naruto speed scaling comes from databooks and the obvious outlier of LS kid kakashi

Without Makimas contract with the prime minister, her durability is practically nonexistent. She is a glass cannon but a very powerful one being able to point her finger and blow someone apart. She was able to blow Pochita into space after a few finger shots which is well beyond anything i've seen from JJK. It really depends on who hits first and Sukuna is a lot faster. So I'd have to give him the majority.

pretty much

sukuna gives her the "kneel" treatment like he did to jogo and the girls in shibuya and beheads makima before she can even react
