Okay, this is actually kinda spoileriffic, so spoilering most of it.

we need to add a good trope for Saiga based on his actions in the Rescue Miu arc. The guy seems to be a super logician, he only kills when necessary, not before. Which leads to some really weird questions about why he killed his own wife... But the point is that during the only sequence we see him fighting, he apparently didn't kill all his opponents, and actively tried to help everyone who needed to be helped, he seemed to cut away emotions for the most part, all empty heart like most killing fist users, but was far more benevolent than most of them. Anyway, anybody know a good trope for the logic master type guy?

Something along the lines of Omniscient Morality License, Fridge Horror or... forgotten the last one.

The fact that everything always ends up alright tends to make forget the fact that many of those characters, including teenagers, are, or where actively pursuing the murder of other teenagers for the sake of furthering their advancement in Martial Arts.

Some of the heroes' friends will regularly defect to the side of those trying to murder them, and the heroes' are often just okay with it.

Could we fix the links here? Half of them are 1000 manga. Which due to copyright, now no longer exists. Use magafox or mangahere instead.

Ensemble Darkhorse candidates for this series: Sho Kanou (despite being dead in-universe), his mentor Akira Hongo, fellow YOMI member Tirawat Koukin, or his mentor Agaard. What say you? Other suggestions?

I have a question...should it really be spoilered that Saiga is Miu's father? After all, his name first comes up in Chapter 77 of the manga, when Sakaki and Shigure are pretending to be Miu's parents in preparation for a home visit by her school's teachers...and Miu did say she wrote her parents' names on the school transcript when she applied there...so if she knew her parents' real names from so long ago, and knew them well enough to use them in such a way, then the actual Saiga being her dad shouldn't be spoilered, should it?

Nah, there's other things about him that should be spoilered, but that's not one of them.

Small correction to the Badass Grandpa entry neccessary: Freya's grandfather uses a jo staff, not a bo staff.

Problem with Calvinball entry. The guy is beating the other three at their own game, not playing a single game involving all the pieces shown.

then delete it or edit it if possible, I read the trope before I got that far but then when I did I saw it was clear that he's just playing 3 different games with 3 different people.

Where would the series be on a scale of realism and fantasy. I usually put off the auras as the technique-o-vision, but then characters do things like sense ki several hundred feet away outside of the building they're in.

Seems to me that its a step up from rule of cool.

While the martial arts themselves are well researched and there has been no ki blasts or other such things, I feel this series leans more towards fantasy, just because of some of the impossible things that are done with the body.

Definitely skews well towards fantasy, and gets further into that realm the longer it goes on.

I think it's basically a fantasy where but they still throw in a lot of real moves and techniques specially in the beggining were everything done by anyone except the masters was still in the boundaries of reality.

What chapter in the manga is it revealed that Miu's father is the head of Yami? I see it posted here, and I've read through the manga, but don't remember specific mention of it.

Should we make the Oblivious to Love entry a Oblivious to Love / Unwanted Harem entry? I mean there are six girls not counting Miu there, and the entry already gives all the information the Unwanted Harem entry would so why make a separate one?

Honoka's relationship with Kenichi in the anime.

Does no one see a problem with her being fiercely jealous of Miu, wearing her brother's pajamas, and volunteering to change out of them in front of him in his bedroom on his bed? I'm a little confused... are we omitting this out of a sense of decency or denial?
