Your forgetting the reputation of Japanese soldiers before world war 2

For the Navy: Japanese pilots of WII ... Kamikaze... human bombs.

For the army, exmple: Battle of Iwo Jim only 200 out of an estimated 200,000 Japanese soldiers surrendered. The rest were killed fighting to the last man.

I could go on listing examples to counter your point.

You get the picture however.

*blink* Wow, talk about out of context.

Okay put it this way- Every soldier, no matter which nation or army, receive the hard lesson of loyal and discipline, does that automatically turn all them into machine that can just so easily throw away their lives? And I'm not talking about glorious death in battle or fighting for the brother beside you, I'm talking about being held hostage and bleeding through your gut.

Hound Dogs aren't fighting for honor or glory; at best it's a paycheck that comes at the end of every month; at worst it's for a guy that doesn't even care about their well-being. Nobody is going to want to die for that.

There's a major difference between fighting for your homeland that is about to be obliterated by far superior American forces and a mercenary working for a mad scientist who would execute you if he would.

Accelerator showed how much of an even more bad-ass he is, all that blood was crazy. Last scene was awesome. Too bad he's on Anti-skills list now.

Wanted to see a better battle between Vento and Touma, maybe later on. Don't know why she coughed up blood though.

So Tsuchimikado is up against another roman catholic, that white ghost like figure?

Usually don't mind Kuroko, but this time she totally killed the mood.

pretty intense episode.

Starting to dislike Accelerator. I mean, I guess its his character, but I thought he got over the whole slaughtering thing after killing 10,000 sisters.

Also the scene with Touma facing off against Vento.
Little Misaka's facial expressions was pretty good. She's usually very talkative. But in that situation, even she can't say anything.

Broken link. You mean when he dodged all those stakes? That was pretty cool but I'm afraid he was horribly overshadowed by Accelerator in that department.

You said soldier... so that distracted me.

These guys working for Hound Dogs aren't soldiers... they are Mercenaries

I know its a technicality but.... I just can't seem to let that distinction go.

I wonder why they always show villains lick blood off their face or weapon or anything, sure it look intimidating, but come on! You don't know what's been swimming in that blood, you could get Aids from that shit... More importantly Blood taste terrible! It's like swallowing a juice made of iron fillings, how can you like that stuff?!

I personally find blood tasty. Sugary and thick, a bit like tomato juice.

Mine has that distinctive metallic taste but I find it tasy and always take a few licks when injured.

I can understand Accelerator, in his case blood is additionally seasoned with a sweet, delicious flavour of victory!

Even so, Accelerator is still underestimating Heaven Canceler.
Heaven Canceler played him like a child. Taming Accelerator the same time and yet still not telling t he truth.

Ah here we go... Now that Baka-Tsuki is up and running again...

Quote:

The crested ibis is originally a wood that symbolizes [Blessing]. By using its special characteristic, it's possible to provide the property to slip through defenses like [Suppression] and [Repulsion]. Had Tsuchimikado carelessly used some defensive magic, those would be recognized by the [Blessing] and the easily armor-piercing stakes might go right through his body.

Tsuchimikado softly tells his silent opponent.

"Three is the skies, four is the earth, and you represent the world with twelve. It's not important to prepare all the stakes. By putting significance to special [numbers], you'll be in a position to be able to obtain [enormous] credit."

In short, he finds out that seven stakes serve as the nucleus, and destroying even one of them will nullify his enemy's magic.

From within this few stakes.

From the thousands right now, and from the mountain of stakes that will again add to the numbers after this.

Tscuhimikado smiled broadly and said,

"A good magic...but this is not Christianity. This is from the theories of the pre-Christian Greek Pythagoreans. Since when did you bastards affirm the world before the [Son of God] was born?"

Ironic since Pythagoras was the first to say everything could be explained with mathematics.

Everything is numbers.
