    I think that Furher King Bradley hasn't been put in many, if any, matches being somewhat obscure a character. No OBD wiki profile and I couldn't find anything skimming through search results. Though watching FMA Brotherhood has me wondering why.

    And you would be wrong. He's just drowned out by all these HST matches. Fullmetal was extremely popular in OBD when it was still ongoing.

    Well they're both quality characters, but I suppose you're right.

    Only saw a bit of Kenshin, but I did read all of FMA a while ago. If my memory hasn't failed me, Bradley should be losing this.

    Kenshin outclasses Bradley in both combat prowess and likely speed.

    Only thing I remember making Bradley impressive was his eye. Other than that, he's pretty meh.

    Prove it. Bradley has trained for years. He has defeated regenerating superhumans with nothing but his swords. He was making Greed look like trash even without his eye.

    Bradley is a bullet timer that cut down machine gun fire and blitzed rooms full of trained soldiers. He has blitzed bullet timers as well.


    Without his eye, he can deflect machine gun fire. With it, he's waltzed through "storms of gunfire" unharmed, he was matching Greedling (a bullet timer) and Fu without even being fazed.

    He nearly killed Scar (another bullet timer) when he was half dead and without the ultimate eye.

    I'm not too knowledgeable on Himura though. I'm just going by his wiki profile. Does he have any feats that match these?

    The only advantage I see Himura having is his DC.

    Huh, so I'm wrong. No surprise there.

    Whatever, I'll just have to go back and read Kenshin, if I can even be bothered. Gotta finish Zetman and then start with Saint Seiya.

    That's right, I've never read Saint Seiya. How does that make you feel? How much awesome am I going to be in for? Only time will tell...

    I'm half assed on Tenchi myself. All I remember is everyone freakin out over Z. Only reason I'd even be bothered with Bastard! is the graphic nudity and whatnot.

    But why ever waste time with Ecchi when there's much better options available? That censorship gets annoying yo.

    Never read that either. :LOS I'm so quality deprived (not really). All I ever need for quality is Death Note.

    I hear that's a pretty good read. There's a certain vampire guy that everyone keeps talking about.

    Apparently he likes stop time on people or something?

    Sounds like a boss whoever he is~

    DIIIOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BRANDOOO!!!!!! Know his name :wry


    Anyway, as for the fight, although Kenshin may be a superior swordsman, Bradley is a more skilled combatant overall. If Bradley can slaughter him before he unleashes his ultimate attack in time, Bradley takes it (but looking at the distance, I'm not sure).

    Bradley because
    -he can predict movements
    -dude almost always uses more than 1 sword when fighting
    -Kenshin doesnt kill anymore and he'll regret doing that
    -Bradley survived ALOT more than Kenshin ever did (but its been along time since i read RK so i could be wrong) and still not only forced Scar to use his left arm but still tied with him afterwards

    He dodged machine gun fire early on the manga, and Sano who is leagues below Kenshin is able to casual bullet time.
    Anyway they should be more less equal in skill and speed, but Kenshin DC should give him the edge.

    Didn't Bradley cut threw a tank shell along with deflecting/dodging bullets. He also had the upper hand with his fight vs greed and fu and for more then half the fight he had to use daggers which he admitted he was not as skilled with.But regardless they are both fairly equal in speed. But if i remember correct kenshin tried his hardest to not kill (been almost ten years since i watched the anime and read the manga). That will hamper him in this fight imo. I see Bradley winning but it will be rough.
