Really? but why? it has all the properties of a lightning ( at least that was the impression I had) I mean, is not something magical, it would be like saying that the fire he produces is not really fire at least that's the impression I have
Doom Guy,@stoniewylder, IIRC it was stated that Iroh actually directed natural lighting as part of his training when learning the methods of water bending to learn how to do it. And even Zuko went to a place to get struck by lightning to learn how to do it but it never did but still it shows he was somewhat confident in being able to redirect it.

Well, if that's true then I suppose they would be higher than supersonic.
Iroh reacted to real lightning in the first season before we knew lighting redirection was a thing
Tbf though he seemed to sense it beforehand which makes sense given the area where the lightning strikes is going to form positively charged ions while the clouds above will form negatively charged ions. This all falls under the category of "plasma manipulation" which is essentially what firebending is.
Doom Guy: The problem with your assumption is that the lightning feats in question are not air-to-ground bolts and notable characters react to them no differently from having other types of projectiles launched at them by enemy benders.
Also, notable characters within Avatar would actually have low-hypersonic combat and reaction speeds as some benders like Aang and Korra have reacted to explosions, that are anywhere from 1800 to 3000 m/s depending on the velocity of the explosion.
Someday I’ll be gone To somewhere that we belong And God has never played his role 'Cause I’m the one who saves my soul It’s a perfect world we’re longing for
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.

Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
