With Divine/god Fist: Small building level (can outmatch the force of sixteen Fa Jins [this is an example of a normal fa jin i.imgur.com/MrMndmb.jpg] and can perform these various feats with a normal amount of energy)
With Vital Energy: Greater than Small building level (Can perform the actual Rising Dragon can multiply his energy as his desire increases, his body however can only take so much energy.) See the Rising Dragon section With Testing Force: At least building level possibly multi-city block level (this multiplies his power by ten, brings out his true body, he also has infinite energy from God) See the Testing Force section At maximum power (should be attainable via testing force also): Possibly multi-city block level (With a Universal Light palm with his full potential unlocked did this)
After Death: Theoretically Infinite (his body can only take so much energy but in death he is in a state of pure energy, since he’s been given infinite energy from God he should be able to use as much as he wants in this state) Also see the Rising Dragon and Testing force Sections below Speed: At least a bullet timer if not much, much higher (on par with Teramoto in an unpowered state prior to wicked fist)
First and foremost, Takagi’s most notable trait is his ridiculous tenacity, often fighting with his whole body after getting shot (back when he had more human-like durability), his arm broke, being beaten to near death (all within a short timeframe) then going through multiple fights with those his nigh equal only surviving on morphine for instance. Most of all however it’s his incredible guts that get him through.
Originally, he practiced Karate but with his incredible intuition he can learn other martial arts fairly easily from study or mid fight observation. For instance, he learned Jing-lin style here
Ibuki Breathing- Takagi can tighten his muscles via a special kind of breathing. Since it effects the “navel” or Dantian (a major qi center) it can increase his offense and defense. This stance can actually be seen when he powers up later on.
Divine Fist is at once three things. First it is a war of movement and an actual way of making a fist. Second it is a powerup. Third it is a technique.
Divine fist the fist involves seeing out the God given laws of nature and man. Combining these can increase force. The shape of the fist can make power spread out in a target thus making all hits more lethal.
The core of Wicked Fist is to increase speed and power as much as possible. This is achieved by bypassing conscious brain activity to attack and defend. This both unifies combat and reaction speed and also allows for reaction by sensing rather than sight.
Pseudo Rising Dragon- By mixing Tai Chi, god Fist, and Wicked Fist to possess three dragon spirits he can deliver a punch so devastating the residual energy ball wrecks the surroundings. Despite this, the true Rising Dragon relies in the quality of energy used…
Rising Dragon- The true rising dragon is achieve when “vital force” is used. Vital Force is defined as the “will to live” but is essentially guts. Naturally it can increase exponentially at will so long as the motivation is there.
Testing Force is divine and spiritual energy. It’s an extension of vital force. He receives it from God who appears as a Buddha like figure here. It is repeatedly said that it increases his power by at least ten, if not more. Though God himself said that it’s limitless power. I interpret this as the bodily powerup (see below) receiving ten times power but his energy is infinite.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...

Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
