      Sorry this is a day late, was a bit preoccupied yesterday from the other thing.


      1: "Who is your favorite character originally from a fighting game?"


      Noel from BlazBlue 


      2: "who is your favorite bunny in fiction"


      Like an actual bunny or a character with the title of bunny? If the later it's my favorite character Sailor Moon. If the former then the Moon Rabbit from folklore who appears in several fictional universes.


      3: "what is your favorite moment in Samurai Jack"


      The end of "Jack Remembers the Past"


      4: "Out of any ships among your friends, which do you think has the most potential for canonicity and why?"


      Clearly it's gonna be HSL x GB because one's a natural uke and one's a nature seme


      5: "Similar to how people in the West have some of their cartoons turned into anime versions like Powerpuff Girls X or the Stitch anime, is the opposite done in Japan where some animes are turned into western cartoons?"


      Um...not that I know. Most adaptations of Anime in the west are turned into Hollywood Live-Action movies.


      6: "What's your favorite comic book story arc and why?"


      Honestly it's probably the current DC Rebirth story arc going on right now interwoven in a lot of the titles, because it feels like it's the most clear expression of what DC Stands for and what DC is doing today, with it's animation, it's live-action movies, it's games and it's comics focused on the same ideal of optimism about the human condition.


      I guess more classically it would be the All-Star Superman run, because it had so much of what makes good comics: it was divine and human at once, and was both accessible but also spoke to the mythology and legacy of the character.


      7: "If you had to choose a Death Battle contestant from one of each season who would they be and who would they fight?"


      Season 1: Wonder Woman vs. She-Thor

      Season 2: Tough one....Maybe Lex Luthor vs. Dr. Doom so the two can actually fight someone remotely on their level

      Season 3: Ganon vs. Castlevania Dracula. 

      Season 4: Scrooge McDuck vs. Eugene Krabs


      8: "Which meme describes you best?"


      Can I go retro and say Nyan Cat?

    • Character Analysis

      1 week ago

      Imperator100

      So I found that writing a personality section in my Death Analysis did not adequately cover everything I wanted to include about characters' personalities so I wrote extended introduction to the 5 characters I'm gonna be doing next both to prepare for them and to give a more in-depth idea of their character beforehand.


      Warning Potential Spoilers.


      Sailor Moon

      Cardcaptor Sakura

      Kratos

      Yugi Muto

      Zatanna


      They're of wildly varying lengths just because some character personalities are easier to describe quickly and some are harder depending on how much they embody or vary from a commonly understood archetype. 

    • Blog Update

      1 week ago

      Imperator100

      Here is a list of the blogs I am currently working on and expect to release within maybe 2 months time (not in order):    

      -Death Analysis: Kratos (Surprising amount of supplementary material)

      -Death Analysis: Yugi Moto (Reading: Several Hundred Chapter Manga)

      -Death Analysis: Zatana (Thousand Comic Issues)

      -Death Prediction: Sailor Moon vs Cardcaptor Sakura (Still need to re-read XXholic and Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles both being several hundred chapter mangas, even though I already know the feats because I need citation for Sakura's feats out of the main series)

      -A Complete overview of DC Cosmology (Requires a lot of reading and putting things together)

      -A potential retrospective series I have considered doing (May or may not require watching a season of a show)

      -A list of my top 25 favorite comic book movie scenes (probably 6 parts)

      -Hopefully a collaboration blog (Which I have no idea what the time scale for that is)

      -3 Part "Defending the DCEU Series" (Which automatically is full of pressure to me because I know it has some very fierce critics)

      -Probably some other MG Blog

      -Possibly another Death Prediction which by votes would be Hikaru Shidou vs Sayaka Miki

      -Another Death Analysis if I can squeeze it in there, shouldn't be a long one given who it's for. 



      So basically I have been a touch stressed out on getting all this done, which of course doesn't even include my own life. 


      This is my attempted apology for things being delayed and also just as a quick update if you want to know what I am doing atm and where things are. Feel free to ask any related questions in the comments. 

    • My Top 5 Marvel Characters

      2 weeks ago

      Imperator100

      So I am pretty known for my heavy #TeamDC Stance and speaking ill of Marvel. But to show some credit and respect to Marvel I wanted to make a list celebrating the 5 characters I most like. And besides Marvel and DC have had comrade-y before. 


      DC-Versus-Marvel-4-1996-1.jpg



      So without further ado, here are my top 5 characters in Marvel Comics


      #5: Heimdall

      250px-Heimdall.jpg


      Heimdall is by far the most unknown character on this list, though more people know him now thanks to the Thor movies. 


      Heimdall is a memetic bad*ss in both the MCU and the comic lines. He is a totally upright moral protector of the 9 realms and I always like the silent guardian archetype. 


      4: Nightcrawler:

      Nightcrawler.PNG


      Have I ever mentioned that teleportation is my favorite power? It is! And Nightcrawler is my favorite X-Man in part because he uses such a cool power.


      But a lot of people have teleportation. I really like Nightcrawler's personality. He's highly religious but not a stereotype of religious people, and the fact that he looks like a devil really creates a nice visual representation of the "don't judge a book by it's cover" theme of the X-Men.


      3: Magneto

      700461-magneto.jpg


      Magneto is the only villain on here. I am one of the few people who finds heroes more interesting then villains, but Magneto I think is one of the best comic villains ever made. Unlike a lot of Marvel villains who are driven by a desire for power or vengeance or something, Magneto is actually driven, at least partially along ideological lines which is far more interesting to me. Beyond that I really like that Magneto acts like an actual person does. 


      Not only do you see how he gets to be how he is, but he isn't that resolute in it. He has actually changed his mind at times. When Xavier died briefly he actually took on his role and tried his best to live up to his ideals out of respect for his old friends. Magneto's powers are cool too, but the fact that a mutant is probably one of the most human characters in the universe, motivated by both fear and sometimes hope for the future is quite a powerful thought.


      2: The Invisible Woman

      4446651-4312381-4277754-57b%2Bff_644_var


      Ok let me get the first and obvious reason out of the way....I think she's hot. Like....she is def my type of girl physically.


      But beyond that though, I really do like her character. She is a protective and compassionate woman, who is a good and proud mother and wife. She's like me if I was in the Marvel Universe and her powers complement that great!


      She is like me! But hotter and with cool powers! <3


      1: Spider-Man

      53710b14a320b.png



      Really this should not be a surprise. Spider-Man was in my favorite character list and relatively high as well. 


      Spider-Man is one of my favorite characters period. And there is way more to talk about then can be expressed here briefly. But let me give you a sense, most characters struggle to be heartwarming, to be awesome, or to be funny. Yet I can easily give you a page of Peter being all 3 at once.


      Spider-Man is the moral conscious of the Marvel Universe, literally put into the Multiverse to safeguard it. He stands for all of us having to constantly struggle to just make ends meet, and face the world with a sense of humor and optimism regardless of how absolutely terrible the world treats us. 


      Also he's just funny. So there's that. 

    • Weekly Questions 5/13/2017

      So far got 3 questions. Let's answer em. 


      1: "What's a shammalammadingdong, and why does Tinnie look like he is one of them? Sincerely, Anon"


      A shammalammadingdong is a technical term describing a type of movie director known for making pretentious films with twist endings being the only reason people to go to see them. 


      As for why Tinnie looks like one, you see during the fertilization process a person get an x or y chromosome from their father's genes and an x chromosome from their mother's genes and so the the trait was probably maintained on one of those two genes.   


      2:  "Personal Thoughts on Thor vs. Vegeta" 

      As in like Current Thor vs. Current Vegeta? I don't know either Marvel or DBS very much at 

      all....Thor I know people compare to Post-Crisis Superman a lot, which means he should be a lot weaker physically, in which case it seems like it depends on your view of Marvel Herald Level speed compared to DBS speed and thus if Thor can hax him.


      I have heard some stuff about Thor being universe level. I don't know if that's legit or not, but Vegeta should be in the Universe+ Range by now and so Thor probably can't hurt him even if that is true.....probably. 


      So I wanna say it depends on what you think of his speed vs Vegeta's speed.


      3: "What's the longest you've ever gone without sleep?"    


      I went 25 hours without sleep once when traveling and I can tell you, I was not very happy at the end of it.

      Wanted to set this up, try it out for a little while. If I don't get much I'll just stop but in case it's successful I set up an ask.fm at @DeathBattleImp:   


      https://ask.fm/DeathBattleImp


      So if people ask stuff, especially wanting me to explain something about my favorite fandoms such as Sailor Moon, DC Comics, Magicka, or many more, or you want to know my personal opinion on Death Battle or something, I'll be happy to answer. Given my nature as a versus debater, I am especially happy to answer questions on who I think who would between two characters that I know both of (especially if same verse).

      I think Death Battle is improving with season 4. In their matchup choices, their post-fight analyses, and arguably in their pre-fight analyses too. 



      Let me break something down for you.


      Season 1:

      Boba Fett vs. Samus Aran

      Akuma vs. Shang Tsung

      Rogue vs. Wonder Woman

      Goomba vs. Koopa

      Mike Haggar vs. Zangief

      70% Video Game Characters

      20% Comic Characters

      10% Film Characters


      Season 2:

      He-Man vs. Lion-O

      Shao Khan vs. M Bison

      Ryu Hayabusa vs. Strider Hiryu

      Ivy Valentine vs. Black Orchid

      Fox McCloud vs. Bucky O'Hare

      70% Video Game Characters

      30% Cartoon Characters


      Season 3:

      Dante vs. Bayonetta

      Bowser vs. Ganon

      Ratchet vs. Jak

      Flash vs. Quicksilver

      Joker vs. Sweet Tooth

      70% Video Game Characters

      30% Comic Characters


      Season 4:

      Lara Croft vs. Nathan Drake

      Scrooge McDuck vs. Shovel Knight

      Venom vs. Bane

      Megazord vs. Voltron

      Natsu vs. Ace

      30% Video Game Characters

      30% Anime Characters

      20% Comic Characters

      10% Cartoon Characters

      10% Live Action TV Characters




      The first 3 seasons started out very heavily focused around video games and they are starting to branch out it seems, do a larger variety.


      And they have been getting more balanced it seems. If you like at the first 3 seasons, you've got like 3 stomps in the first 5 episodes. In season 4 so far you've got like 1 stomp, Venom vs. Bane. All the other matches have at least had debate.    


      And this leads me into the other point which is they've gotten better about picking the dare I say "correct" victor. I so far disagree with one person they've picked this season, and I think I am pretty much the mean there, most people it seems in the serious versus debating community agree with 4 of their 5 verdicts so far this season. 


      Last season they literally started with 2 matches there was nigh-universal support for one side on and picked the other side. This season they have had 1 match most people disagree with, and it's not even the same one because the one people disagree with usually had a strong contingent on that side. I have to be honest, I think DB is doing a lot better.
