21 Ways To Measure Anime Power Levels — 14 Comments

  1. It’s probably included in the characters above, but the name for the main source of power in マギ (Magi) is マゴイ (magoi).

      • I found out that the kanji for マゴイ is 魔力, but that doesn’t really help answer your question. My guess is that it’s mostly made up (although “magoi” is the name for a species of fish though to originate in the Middle East and so there might be something there).

  2. There’s 波紋エナジー (ripple energy) from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

    I will mediate on that power level diagram and try to unlock its true meaning. I feel that if you can understand that picture and its full implications you have reached anime enlightenment! (wait is that actually a good thing? never mind…)

    Also this should be required listening when reading this article:

    • Anime enlightenment is always a good thing. I have faith in your determination to reach that point.

      And ripple energy does sound pretty cool.

  3. Ah! Just thought of one!

    The Absolute Terror Field/synchronization level from Neon Genesis Evangelion.

      • A.T. フィールド!

        I’d have to delve more deeply to figure out synchronization level. I haven’t watched the show in fifteen years or something…yet I listened to the theme song so much I can still remember the lyrics. I think it was the first Japanese I learned purely phonetically just through repetition…

        …holy crap, the immersion method works!

  4. Adshap, do you know the game shows Qさま and くりぃむクイズ ミラクル9? How well do you think you would perform if you were a guest?

    • Yes, i have seen them before. Let me give the cocky answer and say I think I would do extremely well haha.

      I used to watch quiz shows like this with Japanese friends, and especially when it came down to anything kanji rated, I would usually blow them out of the water.

      That being said, I can understand the actually pressure of the contestants on the show is probably pretty intense.

      You got a spot lined up for me? Haha.

  5. I don’t know the Japanese versions but the seven deadly sins use.
    Over all power level
    Magic level
    Spirit level
    Strength level
