In Chapter 86 of Solo Leveling, the Demon King Baran fires a lightning blast into the sky. His blast causes numerous lightning bolt to start raining down onto the battlefield. Sung Jin-Woo shields the demon girl from the lightning attacks with his cloak. As he is blocking the lightning attacks, he comments that "Its no ordinary lightning. Its an AoE magic with the ability to stun enemies". So what do you all think, does this count as a lightning timing feat?
Zero OK yeah this is a bit of a grey case, where it does come down from the sky, but it's also explicitly magic. However, because it was stated that "It's no ordinary lightning", I'm gonna have to go with this not being a lightning timing feat to be on the safe side.
Zero That's not an issue, just because nothing of this (supposed) calibre has been displayed in the series prior to this feat, doesn't mean it's invalid. Outliers are only outliers when they are veritably contradicted by subsequent feats or information, or if there are things that preceded them that would make their validity questionable (frequency aside), and for the latter, this is usually a case-by-case situation.
Anime is much easier to look than graphic novel format. Reminds me of the Magi's feat where Yamraiha was reflecting the attack. The only difference is this feat had no one talking. It was just straight up attack.
Didn't know there was another site that watermark scans especially manhwa series. Seen the stuff ShadowChaos mentioned. That was a long time ago.
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.)

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.
