    So the arm will mystically forget how swords work, and get lopped off the first instant Katsumi comes across a sword-wielding opponent.

    Katsumi that's literally a downgrade to not having an arm.

    I hate that I'm going to have to kinda sorta defend this, so let me preface by saying that Shin still being able to move is dumb.

    But keep in mind that Houken unconsciously holding back against people with GREAT GENERAL SPIRITTM has been a thing for the entire manga; it was explicitly why Ouki was able to match him, and later why Duke Hyou could wound him. So it's entirely possible that this isn't Shin actually getting a power-up, but rather Houken unconsciously weakening himself in response to his refusal to go down.

    I really like how they made IG-11, completely mechanical and efficient movements with virtually no human modeling

    Why do comics still do that stupid 'hand clap stops sword cut' crap? And it's so overused that when someone does it, it's virtually unnoticeable.

    ...I suppose the second thing is a bonus.

    Also, it makes me sad that Doctor Doom is still using old-school Marvel sorcery, while Strange...isn't. Although it's good to see that stuff is still around.

    Pretty much, yeah.

    This is a possible premise, okay.

    It's still an entirely silly scene to me, because if true, it means Houken is holding back an awful lot. He goes from monstering all over Shin, to being pushed back by critically injured Shin.

    However, if this is what the writer intends, I'm somewhat cool with it because it makes any 'victory' Shin gets over Houken to be absolutely meaningless in terms of 'how much Shin has suddenly grown'. Basically, if he wins it'll be because Houken essentially threw the fight.

    Well, Netflix has pulled off a rather epic fail.

    They revealed the name of the main character in their upcoming show Messiah.

    Why is this a problem?

    Because the character's name translates to spoilers:
    Anti-Christ
    end of spoilers

    One suppose that's more than likely the point of that reveal.

    spoilers:
    The Anti-Christ isn't supposed to be some 'Damien from The Omen' hellspawn, but a false prophet that draws attention to himself as he claims to speak for God, up to and including supernatural portent and miracles.
    end of spoilers

    Granted, I sure hope someone got fired for that blunder, lol

    Not much of a reveal though

    My Hero Academia: In my shipper mind that keychain is basically the current placeholder for an IzuOcha engagement ring. So that makes me happy.

    More plot relevant though, spoilers:
    Kurogiri is apparently Aizawa and Mic's long lost classmates Shirakumo.
    end of spoilers

    I feel like we could've gotten quite a bit more build up to this revelation.
