any type of sword really. even better if dual wielded though
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?

Nah coryn dual wield is hard to control without intense practice. And if you want more than one sword then do a zoro with three sword style.

It's pretty interesting that you would mention a naginata. It was the premiere weapon of choice for the battlefield for samurai. Their katanas were used mostly as a status symbol (which crest you had determined what family you or from or what honors you were given) or as a secondary weapon when a naginata wasn't readily available. Its popularity fell later when it began to be used as a status symbol for women in the samurai class.

Personally, I like any weapon based on a simple piece of wood like staves, nunchakus, and tonfas.

Blunt weapons hurt more.
Thats why the rise in blunt tiped arrows in professional Bow and arrow hunters began. Killed more effectively.

ive always liked any weapon with a chain on it, it makes for interesting fight moves as you have quite a flexible way of attack. stuff like the maces with chains etc, just pure weight damage :P
like nyxy said ,it depends on which character uses the weapon as to whether i like it more or less :P
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: Takeo on March 28, 2013, 01:50:37 PM
Being a gun guy, I obviously love guns. But, there's very specific ones that really stand out to me in anime. First off, I can't stand 9mm, because I'm a .45 ACP type of guy. And I hate the desert eagle.

Mr. Chang's AMT Hardballer Longslide 1911's from Black Lagoon
(http://imageshack.us/a/img692/9486/sballers.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/692/sballers.jpg/)(http://imageshack.us/a/img716/6343/hardballerlongslide.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/716/hardballerlongslide.jpg/)
I love 1911's. They're my all-time favorite handgun (and a travesty that Call of Duty consistently nerfs the gun in the worst possible ways. .45 ACP is SUPPOSED to be more powerful than a 9x19mm). Mr. Chang's Hardballers are freaking awesome 1911's, albeit somewhat impractical due to the long slide.

Spike's IMI Jericho 941 from Cowboy Bebop
(http://imageshack.us/a/img818/6784/cbj9412.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/818/cbj9412.jpg/)(http://imageshack.us/a/img844/5858/jericho941fullsize.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/844/jericho941fullsize.jpg/)
Call this a "Baby Eagle" and I'll e-slap you. This awesome .45 handgun is related to the Desert Eagle in only one way: the manufacturer, Israeli Military Industries (aka Magnum Research). This is Spike's main weapon of choice, and is a somewhat obscure choice for an anime, but that makes it much more awesome. The Jericho is pretty underrated IMHO in anime, and more awesome anime characters need to use it more often.

AK-47, AKM, and any and all 7.62x39mm AK-Pattern Rifles used in MANY anime and manga.
This needs no picture, most of you know what the AK-47 is. And I'm going to say this now: SCREW YOUR M16's, M4's, and AR15's. If I were ever to be portrayed as an anime character that's gun crazy, I'd rather use a gun that I can beat to crap, and it'll still work and shoot accurately no matter how much dirt, mud, dust, water, crap I can throw on it. The AK is portrayed with having poor accuracy, when in actuality, in trained hands, the AK can be more accurate and less susceptible to wind than the AR-series of rifles (I've proved this with my own hands IRL. I can shoot a real AK better than I can shoot an M16 and M4) due to using a heavier bullet. The AK is my all-time favorite assault rifle, and I'd use it over an AR on my life any day.

Mossberg M500 and M590 12 Gauge used in various anime by nameless characters (mainly in Gunsmith Cats)
(http://imageshack.us/a/img442/4499/50577.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/442/50577.jpg/)(http://imageshack.us/a/img248/2221/mossberg590.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/248/mossberg590.jpg/)
Another underrated weapon, it's a shame more anime characters don't use the no-nonsense all-work-no-play shotguns in the form of the Mossberg 500 and 590. IRL, these shotguns are cheap and awesome. This is especially true as Remington has been dropping the ball recently with their manufacturing. Oh, 870's, how I miss your pre-2005 shotguns.

Sousuke Sagara's Benelli M3 Super 90 Convertible Shotgun from Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu
(http://imageshack.us/a/img542/7202/sagshotty2.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/542/sagshotty2.jpg/)(http://imageshack.us/a/img803/5687/benellim31.th.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/803/benellim31.jpg/)
Another cool underrated shotgun, the M3 adds to the functionality in that it's convertible, which means that you can switch back and forth between pump and semi-automatic. And given Sagara's military background, it's used to comedic effect. Again, a shame it's not used more often.

I would go on, but then I'd be going on all day about anime guns. I'll probably post again at a later time to cover non-gun weapons that I'm especially fond of, but they're few and far between.

I'd like to say that my favorite weapon is something unique and impressive, but, honestly, I'm a sucker for a good sword, dagger, or knife. In particular, I like King Bradley's swords in FMA, Maes Hughs' knives, Hei's wire knife thing in Darker than Black, Zuko's and Jet's respective dual-wielded broadswords and hookswords in The Last Airbender...

It's quite often the simple things that get to you. The countless times when I've watched anime and the villain could have simply been defeated by a bonk over the head. Would have sort of spoiled the story though...

Post by: MahluaandMilk on November 16, 2014, 01:55:07 PM
Personally, I like scythes. I could probably never wield one without a long time of practice to enhance my upper body strength and footwork, but I would love to be able to. If not, I also love staffs and the ilk up to guan dao (or naginata). Kind of mid-range to put some distance between my opponent and I but still able to do damage and block well. I also wouldn't mind a ball and chain mace, but again, the upper body strength needed for that is.. :-\

Post by: MahluaandMilk on November 16, 2014, 02:03:43 PM
@Nekonomicon: Not really. I feel that katanas have wonderful aesthetic value, but I personally don't find them all that useful in battle.

In general, with bladed weapons, you always have to keep in mind sharpening and how certain things can make them go blunt. Granted, though, I listed some blade weapons myself. Weapon care is just as important as training to wield it..at least, IMO.
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: Nekonomicon on November 16, 2014, 02:10:36 PM
Especially with a fancy sword like a katana, maintaining it is the most important thing! XD such hard work though

Interesting Katana fact:
When in the scabbard, a Katana is kept with the sharp side facing up. So it is like an 'n' instead of a 'u'. Most people think it is the other way up :3
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: Vacant on November 16, 2014, 02:12:27 PM
Are we talking real life or in Anime?

I'd answer a Katana, since I'm a bit of a fanboy, when it comes to them. The craftsmanship that goes into them, the imagery they conjure up in the mind, the beauty of them is all incredible.

If we're talking practically, then I guess I'd go with a knuckle duster. Easy to conceal, no special training required, cheap, can be used without anyone noticing etc.
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: Vacant on November 16, 2014, 02:14:04 PM
I think it depends on the style. It was done so it made it easier to draw and strike a target in one fluid motion, hence the curvature of the blades too

EDIT: That is to say, genuine samurai at the time wore there's edge up. But I think other styles have developed over time.
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: MahluaandMilk on November 16, 2014, 02:15:23 PM
@nekonomicon: That makes perfect sense so that when drawn you can also slice without working your wrist so much.
@vacant: but close range weapons have their own difficulties. Great for a street fight, I suppose, but dodging and blocking can become a hassle for your body over extended periods. (Granted wielding larger weapons like a scythe, as I would love to, is also a burden.)
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: Nekonomicon on November 16, 2014, 02:24:30 PM
It does make sense! It also helps when you are riding a horse :3

History lesson! Don't quote me on any of this.
Before the katana, there were tachi. Tachi are basically a Katana that is made slightly differently, and were sheathed with the sharp side down :D

Then the shogunate and all that happened, and the styles of both fighting and making swords changed. That's when the katana was invented :D The use of the swords also changed, as less wars and things happened. So they could afford to spend more time on the ascetics and artiness of the sword.

Seriously don't quote me on any of that, it could all be lies XD
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: MahluaandMilk on November 16, 2014, 02:25:56 PM
Or it could be the endearing history buff side of a fanboy proudly displaying his knowledge of ancient Japanese warfare.

Well, what I will say is if I'm entering a street fight and a mother trucker shows up with a battle ready Scythe.......You can bet your house I'd be hauling ass in the opposite direction!

Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: MahluaandMilk on November 16, 2014, 02:34:32 PM
(le face palm)

I guess scythes are kind of intimidating. Especially if they draw it and have that steady look in their eye like "see this bad boy? I know how to use it. Yeah, that's right, you better run. Mofugga."
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: Vacant on November 16, 2014, 02:48:18 PM
Although I would question how someone managed to carry a scythe on their person to a street fight, without a passerby immediately alerting the local authorities....Unless, it was an arranged group fight, in a remote location I guess  :hmm:

But then my next thought would probably be why I was taking part in an arranged brawl in the first place, considering I'm not part of any football firms or bare knuckle boxing groups, at least not to my knowledge.
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: MahluaandMilk on November 16, 2014, 02:52:31 PM
Yeah, after weight, concealing a big problem for mid-range weapons. Usually you strap them to your back, but that isn't all that great for stealth..
Title: Re: Favorite kind of weapon?
Post by: FreezingCicada on November 16, 2014, 03:02:24 PM
Most weapons depending on the size should be around 3-6 lbs.
Even large weapons like Zeiwhanders dont even get at 10 lbs.

Now for fantasy it doesnt really matter since pretty boys with scrawny arms swing around huge weapons like nothing. As for concealing nothing beats a classic like good old fashioned bandages.

Anyways I know its not really seen as a weapon but I like the idea of shields being used as one.
Whether your being captain america or just doing simple bashing, its all cool, imo.
After that...Spears or medieval straight swords.

Post by: Chaos297 on November 16, 2014, 03:13:33 PM
I like a variety of different weapons including ranges and Melee weapons.

Leather Brawling Gloves with Steel Knuckles

2 Katana's

2 Shoto's

A 45 pistol "no particular type in mind."

An LMG "Preferably the same type as the Fronteir Saw's in Defiance"

A Yumi Bow "traditional Japanese long bow longer than the archers body and used in Kyudo Justu"

An AK47

Kunai Knives and Senbone "learned to use them from the Shinigami Ninja herself before she died from a 50cal anti tank shell point blank to the chest"

An anti tank cannon

All hidden inside special pair of pocket universe based storage system implants in my hand "designed by a relative of mine and totally undetectable by a metal detector or a pat down.

I live for Dual weapons. Duel swords/knives/sais/pistols/sickles/. I think that's why Tales of Xillia2 became my favorite Tales of game. You can't beat swapping weapons mid battle~~ <3 <3 <3

...Although lances are also nice. Axes also have their own charm too...

A wooden plank with a nail in it

Classical and Primitive yet effective if you know what you're doing and coat the nail in an anticoagulant.

Now muskets are just sexy weapons. Having a volley of them cackle at the enemy then choking up the battlefield with smoke is just... so... human...  :biggrin:

Lets not forget the reload time of them.  20 secs was considered fast.  That is why you all shot a volley walked behind lines and let the next row fire a volley until the first row had enough time to reload their shots to supply an endless volley.

Since it has been a really, really long time, I thought I'd give an update because my favorite weapon types have changed since I've started sort of sparring and considering logistics and other such things. God, I still typed in purple back then. Dear gods why...

Anyway, curved blade weapons still hold my heart, namely the scimitar and the khopesh, however I've become fond of battle hammers and axes lately as well. Perhaps also ball and chain maces. The greatest thing about the khopesh in particular is that its shape makes it excellent for disarming an opponent and going in straight for a counterattack. Now, I do know for a fact that I can wield a whip, so a chain-based weapon might not be out of my reach. Seriously, if you guys ever run into Everlastin again, ask her about the time I ripped her sword from her with a whip.

Nice choice of sword, the Scimitar is an excellent sword for high speed fighting making it perfect for cavalry combat and its thickness and width make it great gor deflecting projectiles such as arrows if you know what you're doing.
Recently though my long forgotten appreciation of the 5.7mm has been revived and I really think the game Black was a bit off on the accuracy of the FNP90 as it's accurate up to 500 meters and can sever a mans torso on full auto, put someone who can wield a FNP90 and a Scimitar on a Harly Davidson you'd have a modern cavalry set up.
