Kudou Denji is a human who's been genetically mutated into a Black Gauna from a very young age for the purpose of fending off the invasion of mysterious alien monsters known as White Gaunas (whom Black Gaunas were based off of as a countermeasure).
One of the defining characteristics of White/Black Gaunas is their uncanny speed. From a Gauna's perspective, what seems like several minutes, is a mere instant for a human; everything is frozen in place from their view, except for other Gaunas. This trait, combined with their supernatural strength and regenerative capabilities, has made them formidable enemies of humanity, practically insurmountable without Black Gauna.
STATS & ABILITIES
Attack Potency/Durability: at least City Block-Level (Kudou and Ayuta destroyed Kegen Hall when they clashed. Battles between Gaunas typically result in surrounding infrastructure being damaged as a side-effect)
Speed: at least Massively Hypersonic (Can easily cross several kilometres in a blink. The world is completely frozen in place from a Gauna's perspective).
Powers: Super Strength, Super Speed, Supernatural Leap (to the point of seeming like limited flight), Regeneration (can instantly re-attach severed limbs and heal small wounds), Body Manipulation (can use his vertebral tendrils as whips/blades and form them into shields), Shape-Shifting (can freely switch between human and Black Gauna forms).
[NOTE: 100+ IMAGES UNDER THE SPOILER TAG. WAIT FOR EVERYTHING TO LOAD, IF ON A SLOWER CONNECTION.]

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...
Feb 20, 2020 13:42:15 GMT
Dream: ...manipulation last week.
