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.
Disclaimer: While these scans look like they’ve been heavily edited this was just because I had to screenshot all of these since these are the officials so it was just easier to leave out panels if they weren’t needed.
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...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
