Massive Thanks to My DeviantArt 800 Watchers

Hey, everybody. Antoni here. I have just hit a new DeviantArt milestone, as I have reached exactly 800 watchers. Since I hit this number of watchers, I thought it would be nice to put forty of my favorite art pieces on display for all of you, wonderful people, as 800 is also divisible by that number. If you know me, I enjoy going further than the norm. I am very grateful to all of you who have embarked on this exciting journey with me on DeviantArt. While there have been bumps and turbulence along the way, I am very glad to have gotten to know you and express the things I enjoy and am passionate about through my artwork. Whether it is The Splendid Seven being a powerful yet loving septet of Yokai warriors, especially with my number one beloved OTP of all time Inuyasha x Ayame leading the helm with their strength, sexiness, sinuousness, and superbness as well as their wonderful family, The Animated Jungle Brothers, The Comic Jungle Brothers or RobRae’s and Zutara’s Double Dates, I always feel inspired and motivated to create content for all of you. So, to all of my 800 wonderful DeviantArt watchers, please give yourselves a round of applause for being absolutely awesome. The Splendid Seven may have started with my undying devotion and love to Inuyasha and Ayame as my number one OTP of all time to the point where I drew their fan-children and built on their unfailing strength as a powerful family. In fact, I made Inuyasha and Ayame have a total of fourteen children, consisting of seven muscular sons named Masataka, Masaya, Masaru, Kenta, Keita, Kazuhiko, and Kaito and seven fierce daughters named Kiriko, Momoko, Makoto, Mikoto, Maya, Minako, and Meika, who I hope to draw a lot more of. Nevertheless, adding in Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, and Shunran proved to be a fun and interesting endeavor because of how superbly their individual strengths as combatants can transform into formidable collectivity against enemies more powerful and more vicious than them. Even as I continue to adorate Inuyasha x Ayame as my number one OTP of all time because of how Inuyasha’s magnificent muscles complement Ayame’s formidable fierceness, thus making them a super strong and stunningly sexy couple, I can never neglect Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s virile manliness as a duo of strong brothers, Shuran’s, Hakkaku’s, and Ginta’s terrific chemistry as a trio of best brothers, Ayame’s and Shunran’s fabulous flexibility as a duo of gorgeous sisters, Sesshoumaru’s and Shuran’s fortitude as great comrades, Inuyasha’s equally strong brotherhood with Hakkaku and Ginta, and even Hakkaku’s and Ginta’s adorable lovability with Shunran. The best ideas I have made for The Splendid Seven were having them be the Mighty Morphin Inurangers in their teen years, thus donning the Power Rangers signature suits and fighting against Naraku’s monsters and demons doing so, and be involved in martial arts tournaments akin to UFC, Pride FC, Tekken, Street Fighter, and many other fighting video games as well as martial arts tournament events I could barely name off the top of my head as they reach adulthood. The latter idea of having Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran involved in martial arts tournaments is one I continue to have the most fun with because of the various martial arts I chose for each Yokai warrior, with Sesshoumaru having Mixed Martial Arts, Shuran having Professional Wrestling, Inuyasha having Pankration, Hakkaku having Muay Boran, Ginta having Lethwei, Ayame having Taekwondo, and Shunran having Shaolin Kung Fu, as well as the spectacle of having seven Yokai martial artists unite, use their amazing strength as well as infallible combat prowess, fight against more powerful opponents, and win the acclaim of the audience while being honorable martial artists. Even better is when these seven martial artists train with the fighting game mentors that I have provided them with and even spar with the Saban-Era Power Rangers who I have chosen them to be their best friends for life as well as closest sparring partners, with Tommy Oliver, Jason Lee Scott, Eric Myers, Rocky DeSantos, Adam Park, Taylor Earhardt, and Jen Scotts being top of mind as the best people the Splendid Seven would consider as their best friends and greatest people they have had the chance to train with. My love for Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran uniting as The Splendid Seven will never fail, and it will last for an eternity. George of the Jungle, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli uniting as a quartet of super strong, magnificently muscular, laudably lovable, and ferociously fierce jungle brothers will always leave me elated and inspired. There is always something phenomenal about having four muscular and powerful jungle warrior brothers being raised superbly by their father Chief Keewazi, who has seen his four precious sons grow from rambunctious boys to tough adolescent young men to the fierce warrior kings they have become. Since they also have Mufasa, Simba, and Kaj by their side as part of the family, given their strong affiliation with lions and leopards, it also makes sense for George, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli to use their muscles, fists, feet, claws, fangs, combat prowess, and animal ferociousness to overcome their enemies as well as be the feral hunters that they are. The brothers who truly embrace being feral are, of course, Basuli and Tarzan who would wrestle and roar at each other butt naked for sparring purposes, hunt naked while using their claws, fangs, muscles, and strength to overcome their prey whether they be antelope, wild boar, deer, or zebra; and smear their prey’s blood all over their buff, nude bodies to scare away poachers and looters by brutally pouncing them. Furthermore, George, Basuli, Tarzan, and Maugli revel in bodybuilding posedowns whether in the nude or in super skimpy g-strings, skinny-dipping in the river, and cuddling with each other like the close brothers that they are all while touching each other’s beautifully bulging muscles. Bulging muscles are not…

The Toonami-Era Inurangers Teams (Final Update)

Greetings and salutations, fellow aficionados of anime, Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and everything early 1990s to early 2000s, Antoni here. This shall be the very last updated Toonami-era Inurangers teams list that serves as a fictional counterpart to the real-life Saban Era of the Power Rangers from 1993 starting with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to 2002 ending with Power Rangers Wild Force before moving to Disney, specifically ABC Kids, after Episode 26. My fictionalized Toonami-era Inurangers series would air from August 28, 2000, starting with all three seasons of Mighty Morphin Inurangers to December 31, 2005, ending with Inurangers Wild Force. Where Mighty Morphin Inurangers is concerned, this is going to be the season consisting of decomposite and composite characters for the main seven rangers, as I base them on which real-life counterparts they fit best. So, no Peace Conferences, no International Gymnastics deals, and no unexplained replacements are going to occur. Furthermore, this list is going to be kept to solely seven members per installment, considering that it follows the Super Sentai pattern of different team members per season.   After much thinking, reflecting, and re-tweaking, and since Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ 30th anniversary is gradually then suddenly approaching, I believe I have concocted a finalized Toonami-Era Inurangers line-up that I am most satisfied with and one that I feel makes more sense. I also feel that this line-up is going to be a whole lot more fully realized and legitimate after the countless times I have been updating and re-updating the team line-up for what felt like ages. The same rule applies that the main seven colors of red, green or any other color, white or any other color, black or blue, blue or green, yellow, and pink apply to each ranger team. As to be expected certain characters such as Billy Cranston from Zeo, Adam Park from In Space, Nancy Cooper from Lightspeed Rescue, Alex Drake from Time Force, and even Princess Shayla from Wild Force are going to have their more fictional counterparts more active rangers to thoroughly complete the seven-ranger team line-up for each season. With that said, it is time to morph into action for my final update of the Toonami-era Inurangers teams from Mighty Morphin to Wild Force. Say it with me now, everybody. It’s Morphin’ Time! Shift into Turbo! Let’s rocket! Go galactic! Lightspeed Rescue! Time for Time Force! Wild access!   Mighty Morphin Inurangers Seasons 1 to 2 (2000) Inuyasha from Inuyasha the 18-year-old Red Tyrannosaurus Ranger version of Jason Lee Scott and Tommy Oliver voiced by Richard Ian Cox Shuran from Inuyasha the 18-year-old Green Dragonzord Ranger version of Tommy Oliver and Rocky DeSantos voiced by Scott Logie Sesshoumaru from Inuyasha the 19-year-old White Tigerzord Ranger version of Tommy Oliver and Jason Lee Scott voiced by David Kaye Hakkaku from Inuyasha the 17-year-old Black Mastodon Ranger version Zack Taylor and Billy Cranston voiced by Alistair Abell Ginta from Inuyasha the 17-year-old Blue Triceratops Ranger version of Billy Cranston and Adam Park voiced by Paul Dobson Ayame from Inuyasha the 15-year-old Yellow Saber-Toothed Tiger Ranger version of Trini Kwan and Aisha Campbell voiced by Natalie Walters Shunran from Inuyasha the 14-year-old Pink Pterodactyl Ranger version of Kimberly Ann Hart voiced by Jocelyne Loewen   Mighty Morphin Inurangers the Movie and Mighty Morphin Inurangers Season 3 (2001) Inuyasha from Inuyasha the 19-year-old Red Tyrannosaurus Ranger version of Jason Lee Scott and Tommy Oliver voiced by Richard Ian Cox Shuran from Inuyasha the 19-year-old Green Dragonzord Ranger version of Tommy Oliver and Rocky DeSantos voiced by Scott Logie Sesshoumaru from Inuyasha the 20-year-old White Tigerzord Ranger version of Tommy Oliver and Jason Lee Scott voiced by David Kaye Hakkaku from Inuyasha the 18-year-old Black Mastodon Ranger version of Zack Taylor and Billy Cranston voiced by Alistair Abell Ginta from Inuyasha the 18-year-old Blue Triceratops Ranger version of Billy Cranston and Adam Park voiced by Paul Dobson Ayame from Inuyasha the 16-year-old Yellow Sabre-Toothed Ranger version of Trini Kwan and Aisha Campbell voiced by Natalie Walters Shunran from Inuyasha the 15-year-old Pink Pterodactyl Ranger version of Kimberly Ann Hart and Katherine Hillard voiced by Jocelyne Loewen   Mighty Morphin Makai Rangers (2001) Yusuke Urameshi from YuYu Hakusho the 24-year-old Red Makai Ranger version of Aurico voiced by Justin Cook Keiko Yukimura from YuYu Hakusho the 23-year-old Green Makai Ranger version of Dulcea voiced by Laura Bailey Botan from YuYu Hakusho the 23-year-old White Makai Ranger version of Delphine voiced by Cynthia Cranz Hiei from YuYu Hakusho the 24-year-old Black Makai Ranger version of Corcus voiced by Chuck Huber Kazuma Kuwabara from YuYu Hakusho the 24-year-old Blue Makai Ranger version of Cestro voiced by Christopher R.

My Eight Anime Septet Martial Arts Teams

Greetings, anime fans, martial arts aficionados, fighting game devotees, and enthusiasts of all things pertaining to anime, martial arts, video games, and fighting tournaments. Antoni here with another written entry. It should come off as no surprise that I love anime, martial arts, fighting games, and martial arts tournaments such as UFC and what we have today with Karate Combat. I revel in how diverse and intriguing fight choreography can be when the impact of a punch, kick, strike, and/or grapple can have on a combatant. Most of all, I enjoy the brutality of any blow or hold that is unleashed by the combatant whether in a real-life martial arts tournament or in fighting video games such as Tekken and Street Fighter. Therefore, martial arts tournaments melding with fighting games and anime are up there with the best things ever to make any nerd let alone otaku enthusiastic as well as grin from ear to ear.   Given my experience of growing up with various anime series, fighting video games, and martial arts tournaments, I thought it would be fun to make seven groups of seven anime characters that I grew up with and give them the martial arts I think perfectly suit them. A good number of them will be based on canon, while others will be based on fanon. There are going to be a good number of characters that I grew up with from Inuyasha, Fullmetal Alchemist, Solty Rei, Detective School Q, Ultra Maniac, Wolf’s Rain, Technolyze, Baki the Grappler, Shootfighter Tekken, Shura no Toki, Chrono Crusade, Geneshaft, Samurai 7, and Hajime no Ippo who will be featured on here. I am sure that fellow hardcore anime fans would recognize them in the team-ups provided as well as make their own assessments of the martial arts I have provided for them. With that said, arm yourselves well and be prepared to kick butt with these eight martial arts teams of seven consisting of anime characters I have had fond memories with ever since I was a child. You might even feel you are going through a character selection of your favorite fighting game.   The Splendid Seven (Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran) These seven Yokai warriors, consisting of two dog Yokai brothers, Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha, three spiky-haired brothers, Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta, and two auburn-haired sisters, Ayame and Shunran, capitalize on bloody brutality when they pummel their opponents without respite or mercy, thus making them emerge as victors in any tournament. Therefore, they prove themselves to be a strong team because of how much they can take brutal hits from their opponents while delivering more serious ones. Strength and stealth define them with abandon, and they do not surrender that easily when the chips are down. Sesshoumaru (Inuyasha) – Mixed Martial Arts Shuran (Inuyasha) – Professional Wrestling Inuyasha (Inuyasha) – Pankration Hakkaku (Inuyasha) – Muay Boran Ginta (Inuyasha) – Lehtwei Ayame (Inuyasha) – Taekwondo Shunran (Inuyasha) – Shaolin Kung Fu   The Honorable Budoka (Kuranosuke, Kisuke, Shinosuke, Toran, Wakana, Enju, and Karan) Honor, decorum, valor, and stamina are the hallmarks of what defines them as martial artists. The three dashing gentlemen, consisting of Kuranosuke Takeda, Kisuke, and Shinosuke, have been Karate practitioners ever since they were young boys. While the four ladies, consisting of Toran, Wakana, Enju, and Karan, are deeply rooted in Chinese martial arts. Their strikes are a combination of accurate and deadly because of how much they do not hold back in unleashing their series of punches, kicks, and strikes, thus numbing their opponents in pain due to knowing a thing or two about pressure points. Kuranosuke Takeda (Inuyasha) – Shotokan Karate Kisuke (Inuyasha) – Goju-Ryu Karate Shinosuke (Inuyasha) – Kyokushin Karate Toran (Inuyasha) – Wing Chun Wakana (Inuyasha) – Baguazhang Enju (Inuyasha) – Wushu Karan (Inuyasha) – Hung Gar   The Kings of the Iron Fist (Baki, Ryoma, Takeshi, Kiibo, Alexander, Ichiro, and Ippo) Boxing or Mixed Martial Arts? Who gives a damn? Seven strong dudes who use Boxing’s punishing punches while incorporating Mixed Martial Arts’ strangulating clinches and bloody attacks? You’re going to give a damn, especially when Baki Hanma, Ryoma Sakamoto, Takeshi Sendo, Kiibo Miyazawa, Alexander Volg Zangief, Ichiro Miyata, and Ippo Makunouchi combine their furious fists, super strength, and crushing clinches with aplomb! Once these seven strong clinchers and punchers put their fists and clinches to great use, their opponents need pray profusely for their survival to not end up dead, let alone reside in a hospital. Baki Hanma (Baki the Grappler) – Total Fighting Style Mixed Boxing Ryoma Sakamoto (Shura no Toki) – Pride FC Style Mixed Boxing Takeshi Sendo (Hajime no Ippo) – Naniwa Style Mixed Boxing Kiichi “Kiibo” Miyazawa (Shootfighter Tekken) – Nanshin Shadow Style Mixed Boxing Alexander Volg Zangief (Hajime no Ippo) – Otowa Style Mixed Boxing Ichiro Miyata (Hajime no Ippo) – Kawahara Style Mixed Boxing Ippo Makunouchi (Hajime no Ippo) – Kamogawa Style Mixed Boxing   The Queens of Titanium Strikes (Rosé T, Rose A, Winry, Megumi, Maya, Solty, and Kaoru) There is no escape let alone point of blocking when these seven sultry babes have shell-shocking strikes to perfectly compliment their fancy footwork. Whether Rosé Thomas, Rose Anderson, Winry Rockbell, Megumi Minami, Maya Orihara, Solty Revant, and Kaoru Ichinose use their punches, kicks, and strikes to take their opponents down or use defenses and evasion to block their opponent’s attacks, they never surrender before the bell rings. Therefore, they may be beauties with a strong sense of sisterhood, but they fight like vicious beasts who leave their opponents bloodied and bruised without respite. Rosé Thomas (Fullmetal Alchemist) – Dutch Kickboxing Rose Anderson (Solty Rei) – Shootboxing Winry Rockbell (Fullmetal Alchemist) – American Kickboxing Megumi Minami (Detective School Q) – Sanda Maya Orihara (Ultra Maniac) – Japanese Kickboxing Solty Revant (Solty Rei) – Savate Kaoru Ichinose (Detective School Q) – Combat Hopak   The Vicious Executioners (Yoshiki, Mamoru, Tsume, Mitsuhide, Masaru, Tatsuya, and Ryuichi) Heavyweight champions do not begin to describe…
