    Default Truth: it is the word.

    It’s not that I don’t trust third person recounts, it’s just the third person recounts aren’t logical in comparison to Olympic status. If something doesn’t make sense, it’s only natural to try and explain it. I did go research this matter and the basis of my findings are here.

    Mythbusters isn’t doing it anytime soon. Hence why this discussion is here in the first place.

    This isn’t a chapter thread. It’s not like it’s destroying your ES21 story. It’s comparing ES21 to real life.

    How do you do that? Comparing the aspects of the manga to real life.

    We are simply getting the facts straight.

    If you think this manga doesn’t have its fair share of unbelievable BS, then you need a reality check. There are so much people that are skewing what is real and what is “unbelievable BS.”

    Again we are comparing it to real life. Believe it’s a fact if you want - ignorance is bliss after all. I’m merely adding information that few if any one else on these forums knew beforehand, that openly explains the discrepancies of the sport in question. The 40 yard dash is a measure of speed, yes. However, in real life no one can get up off their couch and suddenly run a 4.2 40 yard dash. This thread is comparing your so called heroes/villains to real life.

    It already is complete BS.

    Yes. It’s a real life comparison of ES21. Semi-realistic primetime forensic science shows have little if anything to do with this. Forensic science shows still depict realism. What makes it unrealistic is the frequency of said realism and the way they dramatize them. They are still realistic. ES21 as a whole is built of unrealistic exaggerations of real life aspects. It on the other hand is not realistic.

In the end does it really matter exactly who has the title as long as he has the speed to back it up? And the 4.2 second 40yard dash? Well, as long as it remains just a scale of the calibre between althletes.
    The fact is he is not real. However, the mangaka needed to get his idea from somewhere.

    Please. Its people that think aspects of sports manga like ES21 are facts and completely real that ruin the validity and reputation of real life sports. Accepting “facts” just because they are facts ruins more than just entertainment. Fantasy is fantasy, real is real. If you think questioning the "facts" is wrong, then go live in a dogmatic religion for the rest of your life.


    Take a tip from Colbert.
