Not entirely related, but does anyone know what happened to the doujin that the page image is from? I think Maullar Maullar (or whoever made it) took it down.

Never mind, I found a copy of it on my hard drive. Delete this comment and the original, please.

There seems to be some ambiguity with how the term "hitbox" is used in this article. As the text and the picture suggest, this page's definition of a hitbox could be either "the area of an attack" or "the area that the target takes damage." These are two very different things, and I'll have you all know that competitive fighting gamers usually refer to the type with a different term, "hurtbox," which removes the ambiguity and actually makes sense (the area of the target isn't doing the hitting; the attack does the hitting). Is it okay if I fix the article so that the two distinct terms are recognized?

Note: "Hurtbox" is still a fairly-recent term.
