Superhuman Characteristic, Master Swordsman, Immortality, Regeneration, Conceptual Cutting, Long Range Slashes
The big thing that separates Juzo from every other characters is his cutting ability. Juzo can literally cut anything including Concepts. To demonstrate his ability to Tota Konoe and Nikitis, Juzo shows them an apple and asks them what it is. When they answer, Juzo cut the very concept of what an apple is away from Tota and Nikitis to the point that they have absolutely no idea what Juzo is holding. They are forced to reeductate themselves with a children's encyclopedia to learn that Juzo was holding an apple:
A military satellite is pulled from orbit and comes crashing down into the UQ Holder base, shattering the base's barrier. Juzo and Sept take advantage of the confusing and blitz Jinbei and Genogoro, cutting them both in half:
Juzo attempts to blitz Jinbei but is intercepted by Ikku's laser's swords. Ikku tries to hold Juzo off so Jinbei can heal, spawning several more arms to battle Juzo but right before Juzo moves, Ikku finally notices that the slash he blocked from Juzo, actually cut off all his arms. Juzo dashes through the surprised Ikku, cutting him to pieces before Jinbei teleports Ikku's head away, saving his life. Juzo goes on to attack Jinbei again but Jinbei catches the his sword and hits him with a strong blow, sending him flying into a building:
Jinbei's powerful hit does little to slow down Juzo as he suddenly moves faster than Jinbei can see and appears behind him. Jinbei correctly deduces that Juzo is being controlled by the Pure-Blood Baal but Juzo says its not full control, it just frees him from the restriction of right and wrong. Juzo attacks Jinbei with a flurry of slashes, cutting him all over his body but not delivering any deep wounds:
When Juzo and Sept almost kill Jinbei (actually almost kill him for real), Gengoro blocks their attacks and saves Jinbei. Juzo later moves so fast that Gengoro couldn't even sense him. Gengoro is saved by Kuromaru blocking Juzo's slash (its later revealed that Juzo was holding back so that explains why Kuromaru was able to block his attack) and Santa who locks Juzo and Sept in his telekinesis.
Another military satellite comes crashing down towards UQ Holder Headquarters but is blocked by Karin's Holy Magic. The exploding satellite rains 500 summon demons down onto the base.
Karin arrives to help Kuromaru, Santa and Gengoro with Juzo and Sept. After only a few seconds Juzo breaks free from Santa's telekinesis and comes charging at him. Santa attempts to block Juzo with his Psycho Geist forcefield but Juzo cuts right through it and then shreds Santa's reverent body.
Kuromaru clashes with Juzo and lands a hit on him but then realizes Juzo also cut him as she is split in two. As Kuromaru regenerates, she charges at Juzo who cuts off her head.
Gengoro suicides himself to respawn and give himself 3 seconds of invincibility but Juzo cuts right through his invincibility, literally cutting through the rules.
Karin attacks Juzo from behind and while parrying Gengoro with his sword, Juzo cuts Karin's cloths apart. Relying on her divine curse that makes her body invulnerable, Karin attacks Juzo only to be cut apart. Juzo remarks there is nothing he cannot cut through. There is nothing in the world Juzo cannot cut, Curses, Karma, even Concepts:
Santa pushes Juzo back with his telekinesis and Gengoro attacks him with 9 invincibly respawns from all sides. Within 0.50 seconds, Juzo cuts apart the bullets from 5 point blank guns and cuts all 9 of the invincible Gengoro respawns in half:
Jinbei finally gets serious and clashes with Juzo. Jinbei figures out that in order to block Juzo's sword that can cut through anything, you need something that has already been "cut". He uses his Switcheroo power to constantly keep his arms in a state of Spatial Tear so he can block Juzo's sword. The two continue to battle and Juzo unleashes his Godlike Strength, destroying large parts of the UQ Holder Base. Juzo and Jinbei battle midair among the flying debris as fast its almost as if the debris is floating in midair. Juzo continues his assault, smashing Jinbei through several large rocks while Jinbei attempts to get close to Juzo. Juzo smashes Jinbei through the ground into the Underground Lake (through a barrier that not even Evangeline can break through). Juzo gets behind Jinbei and impales him through the torso while Jinbei hits Juzo with Switcheroo, blowing off his left shoulder and arm. The two laugh and continue their immortal battle:
Juzo and Jinbei continue their immortal battle with Jinbei using Switcheroo to reattach his severed torso and Juzo using his plant like regeneration to spawn a new arm. Juzo attempts to blitz cut off Jinbei's head but Jinbei blocks it with his spatial tearing and then realizes that Juzo also cut off his foot. As Jinbei reattaches his foot, Juzo cuts him leg into several pieces. The two continue to trade blows, destroying the underground lake. Jinbei is cut so much that is constantly using Switcheroo to keep his body together throughout the fight.
Jinbei realizes that Juzo has been holding back for the entire fight. Every move Juzo has used so far was just for fun and if he got serious, Jinbei wouldn't have even had a chance. Jinbei taunt's Juzo into going all out so Juzo blitz decapitates Jinbei and shreds his head.
Juzo is later seen with his body completely regenerated several minutes later while UQ Holder is fighting Baal. He cuts through Dana's micro black hole (which is stated to not just be magic but an actual micro black hole) and cuts her body several times:
During the battle with Baal, the pureblood is dominating the rest of UQ Holder. Due to Baal existing on a higher plane, none of the numbers attacks can touch Baal, not even Jinbei's Switcheroo which operates on the Fourth Dimension. Juzo arrives and punches Baal in the face before cutting him in half several time:
While having a competition to decide who is the strongest member of UQ Holder, Nitikis fires off a blast the equivalent of a nuclear explosion. Not to be outdone, Juzo uses a long range slash to make an even bigger explosion. Nitikis and Juzo face off in a silly battle with Juzo cutting Nitikis in half (lol):
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.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
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.
Feb 9, 2020 3:24:18 GMT
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.
