Okay so I was thinking, and тиваненк brought up points about what makes an attack ftl. There are at least 3 ways to determine this from what I know (not including black hole stuff)
The first being traveling certain distance in a certain amount of time, in a speed of or faster than light. Simple, right?
The second is having someone who is faster than light not able to avoid it like this.
The third way is the way Tiva brought up. If the attack looks, and acts like light. Doing things like traveling in a straight line instead of curving, or bouncing off of mirrors (and immediately I thought of Yusuke), can you guys think of characters with attacks like this? Like I said the only one i've thought of is yusuke.
And then it bounced off a mirror and hit Hiei in the back.
Yes, Im was talking about this with some friends this week, that Leigan seems like Light. The Light attack of Litch was considered real light cause was folded by a mirror, thats attack wasnt diferent for me.
Obviously the first method mentioned is the most reliable to judge by due to simplicity, which assists in ruling out interpretation and other subjective views of the feat. The second method is less reliable purely because the act of avoiding or countering an attack often does not give much detail about a character's overall movement speed. One does not have to be as fast as light to avoid an attack moving at that speed given they have enough forewarning of it. The same is true for anything traveling at any speed. The third method is tricky because it does not rule out other possibilities. Simply because something travels in a straight line or bounces off of objects does not mean it is synonymous to light in all aspects. Sound waves exhibit the same properties. In fact any type of wave would do those things to some degree. Therefore an energy beam fired by a character does not automatically possess all properties of electromagnetism just because it meets some of the requirements.
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.

Taka: What? That sounds so weird.

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.
