The blatant midboss has also lost a few, I think? He has way too many though so they're obviously meant to just be used once and then ignored.
I don't know why but I feel like Strange Fake's anime would be a Studio Bones production.
Wait which studio animated Baccano! & Durarara!!?
Give it to Madhouse: what's a more appropriate studio to adapt a series that doesn't seem to end than one that never does more than one season of anything?
How many volumes are out so far?
Four, if memory serves.
Okay, I've only read the first two or three so far, but I rather enjoyed them as (mostly) light hearted diversions. Yes the cast is getting bloated but I can't help but love how all the characters are playing off each other. Flat is a hoot
I think might be a little underleveled on my CCC Tamamo save file, because I just got the Polygamist Castration Fist from a level up I reached by defeating the last male enemy in the game. Either that or the Skill is really misplaced on the level planning.
EDIT: Thinking about it a bit more, I realized there were only two male enemies in the entire game (3 if you count the 2 Robin battles as different enemies). I guess the Skill wasn't meant to have much use anyways.
Man Charlie is every bit the nerd I expected and I love it.
Bless the talented soul who made.
Super well done.
10/10 would watch again
Points for using the female (i.e. the superior) master
Huh I recently discovered a new manga that's also doing the legendary heroes bit, Shuumatsu no Walkure or Shuumatsu no Valkyrie or Record of Ragnarok.
Synopsis: The Gods have decided for humanity to be destroyed & this setting uses the all pantheon thing so ya have a Godly meeting headed by Zeus sitting with a dragon with Aphrodite, Shiva, & Odin all part of it. Then Brunhilde of the Valkyries shows and via goading the Gods using their arrogance & a very obscure Godly law convinces the Gods to give humanity one more chance.
The final trial, a grand tournament where the 13 strongest humans in all of existence goes up against the 13 strongest Gods in all of existence.
First match: Lu Bu of the 3 Kingdoms vs Thor of the Aesir/Norse Pantheon.

Rather derivative, but has good Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny potential.
Its very direct & to the point, it starts out with the Gods decreeing, & then it cuts to the first match of the tournament. Not top much set-up beyond the simple stuff.
Also very over the top, Lu Bu is portrayed as an utter beast who is the strongest human ever & when he was executed instead of cowardly plea begging for his own life, he simply beg for the sweet release of death because life had become to boring for him while Thor wiped out an entire invasion of Frost Giants all by himself with only the barest of effort. Mjolnir is also portrayed as extremely gigantic & impractical looking.
The rest of the line-up that was announced in chapter 4 (at which there are only at the moment) is as follows.
On the Gods side: Zeus, Buddha, Loki, Apollo, Poseidon, Susano'o No Mikoto, Bishamonten, Anubis, Odin, Beelzebub, Shiva, & Heracles.
On the Humans side: Qin Shi Huang, King Leonidas, Nikola Tesla, Sasaki Kojiro, Raiden Tameemon, Adan, Grigori Rasputin, Okita Souji, Michel Nostradamus, Simo Hayha, Sakata Kintoki, & Jack the Ripper.
Disappointed Buddhas pal Jesus isnt there.
But Iíll check it out
Isn't Xiang Yu generally considered the greatest warrior of China, not Lu Bu?
Just checking....... Brunhilde describes Lu Bu as "The Most Barbaric Warrior".
He's also been described with the terms of "He Is The Strongest Man Since The Dawn of History" & "China's Strongest Hero."
They are basically calling him the strongest human being in existence.
Wait which time are Lu Bu & Xiang Hu from?

Lu Bu is from around the 3rd century IIRC
I think Lu Bu is considered the strongest warrior, he was just a really poor excuse of a general, being impulsive and disrespectful to his subordinates and lacking a good sense of tactics and long term strategy, both in Real Life and in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, though obviously the latter exagerates it a bit.
Calling your dead enemy a great warrior is a power move, because the implication is 'think of how badass I must be if I beat them'.
Bah, all my favorite FGO fanworks use the male master.
We have enough male protags in VN's.
