Guessing this is the same guy who whined on Twitter about The Witcher, re: women not being able to fight with a sword.

so what if the judge was like, "Fine. Kendo fight with armor in court in one month."

and she just so happens to be the daughter of a master swordsman...

12 weeks? What kind of bullshit is that? I've seen them do it in 4 days on Forged in Fire. If all he makes is delaminated slag, that's his problem.

I'm waiting for the follow up story

"The lawyer for the ex-wife responded to the defendant in court by making a general gesture at him and saying 'I mean, come on'. The judge nodded in agreement then awarded all belongings to the ex-wife and sentenced the defendant to mandatory counseling and a psych eval".

He needs 12 weeks of training to win ? Is his wife a samurai ?
Wife and lawyer so 2v1.

Should I be surprised that there is no mention of being able to declare a champion. You can do that under New York rules.


You can't be serious!
In New York we still haven't removed the option from our books. When the colonies adopted English rules they still thought this was reasonable.

I blame Virginia and the Carolinas for making it fashionable back then.

He has much to learn. His senpai Florida man would have never issued the challenge. He would merely arrive at the court house at dawn bushido blade in hand with a long straw hat on. Waiting for them to arrive. And then when their eyes met. They’ll know the duel is on

Always remember the basics of sword fighting:
- Press L1 when the enemy attacks is about to land.
- Always check yours and your enemy's posture damage.
- Hold L1 to recover posture faster.

These simple tips can get you through anything, from a divorce to a class action lawsuit.

Are we talking cheap replicas or the real deal, folded-over-a-thousand-times, glorious Nipponese steel? Can you even call it a katana if it can't cut a hole through the fabric of reality? Can any of Era's legal experts clear this up?

Little does he know she has sliced him in half already, this is just the dramatic delay before he realises and his body starts sliding apart
