[IMPORTANT NOTE: IN THE DOUBLE-COLUMN IMAGE COLLAGES, THE READING ORDER OF PAGES IS REVERSED. EACH INDIVIDUAL PAGE'S PANELS ARE STILL READ RIGHT-TO-LEFT (Manga-Style), BUT THE PAGE TRANSITION FOR THE READER IS LEFT-TO-RIGHT (Comic-Style). This is simply a consequence of using a certain automatic-collage-creation program]
Destructive Capacity/Attack Potency/Durability: Country-Level (Base Form), Large Country-Level (Ryuumajin Form)
Speed (this includes travel speed via Ruura): Massively Hypersonic+ (Base Form), Massively Hypersonic+ to a higher degree (Ryuumajin Form)
- General information on the abilities of Dragon Knights:
- Dragonic Aura: An aura of pure Ki (called Touki in DQ) that permanently coats a Dragon Knight's skin whenever they activate their Dragon Crest, provides a high boost in power and defense, has anti-magic properties, can be expanded to form a barrier around the user and cause environmental damage, and can be concentrated to release Doruoora.
- Crest Flash: A beam of energy that shoots from the Dragon Crest.
- Touki (Ki) Manipulation: Can use his Touki to boost his strength and power/defense, can also use it to release blasts of energy.
- Memory Erasure: Can erase the memories of other Dragon Knights provided they are weaker than him.
- Telepathy: Can communicate telepathically with other Dragon Knights.
- Healing Magic & Sleep-Inducement Magic (see feat collages).
- Demon Dragon Blade: Baran's sword. It's made out of Orihalcon***** (extremely durable), can repair itself over time even if it was snapped in half, and be called back to him on command if separated from his grip.
******Magic, in the world of Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, has natural properties. Lightning magic conducts through metals and is called from thunderclouds, Fire magic consumes ambient oxygen to continue burning, and all Heat-Manipulation magic is explained by real-world scientific principles based on natural phenomena, that is, Mera-class spells vibrate molecules at high speeds to induce burning, and Hyado-class spells slow down the vibration of molecules to induce freezing:

Taka: My favorite episode in Samurai Champloo was probably Ep 22.

Dream: The one with zombies excavating for treasure? Think that one's the most out there of episodes in the series. Mine's probably the one involving Mugen busting a counterfeit coin ring while trying to get nookie from a ninja girl disguised as a prostitute.

Master Menos: Updates complete. As for a life update, I'm quitting my fast food job soon. Was good for my very first job, but things are getting FAR too chaotic for my tastes.
Feb 6, 2020 22:06:13 GMT
Dream: Far as job front goes on my end, still waiting on projects to start up with my freelance job. Beyond that, nothing new for other work in my search.
Feb 6, 2020 22:42:02 GMT
Dream: Just completed Spice and Wolf. Plan to work on a review for it sometime tomorrow. Too late to have any inhibition to get one done from my end.
Feb 7, 2020 3:17:29 GMT
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.
Feb 9, 2020 3:24:18 GMT
Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!
Feb 11, 2020 6:31:08 GMT
Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.
Feb 13, 2020 22:47:26 GMT
Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)
Feb 15, 2020 4:17:13 GMT
Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
