MEN of MANLINESS: Round 1: Battle 19: Keaton vs J
Our next battle matches up "The Master Insurance Investigator" Taichi Hiraga Keaton from Master Keaton vs. "The Special Services Android" J from Heat Guy J.
Remember to post your votes in the forums in case of ties!!
I vote for J.
I'm going to go ahead and vote on this one, because I want you all to know: Keaton is quite possibly my favorite anime character of ALL TIME.
Though he may not look like much, he's basically Sherlock Holmes, Indiana Jones, and MacGyver all rolled into one. And yet he's not a horribly annoying Gary Stu like some other anime characters are. coughKiritocough
This is a man who fought off a group of mafia hitmen using a wooden spoon and some rocks, built a grappling hook out of an ID card and some sticks, survived several nights in the desert with no water or shoes and managed not only to save himself but ALL of his traveling companions, and even disarmed a bomb…. WITH A CHOCOLATE BAR.
Unless you've seen the series yourself, you simply have no idea the things this seemingly ordinary man is capable of. But this AMV might give you a basic idea:
Odds are, Keaton could probably dismantle J with only 5 minutes prep time and using only the items in his pockets.
But again, that's just my opinion. ~_^
Okay Hardy, I'll toss Keaton a vote just for you because that post made me very interested in the series and character.
He's not called "Master" for nothing.
My vote for J ties it up at 4 all.
I'll give Keaton the vote for Hardy. Too bad Alex Row already lost, because I would have expected a payback vote.
I'll have to side with J
