    This is fun. The anime "My Hero Academia" is about superhero kids going to a special academy, and the powers they have are pretty inventive. This is a fan film, and this guy's power is apparently that he can throw his backpack and teleport into it. Which is interesting and original. They shot this exactly like an anime fight scene, right down to the "clever twist on power use" toward the end where he gets the guy used to watching the backpack, then throws it up in the air as a feint.

    I applaud.

    I've got the Sunday night DUST short film hour going on my other monitor... only half paying attention, but this one had some crazy ass imagery every time I glanced over. Gonna have to give it a closer watch.

    Here's another video by the same guy. It's real good. Particularly the bit at the end about Xu Xiaodong (the lead-in starts around 18:30). Do recommend.

    It turns out even wu shu and kung fu are pretty much bullshit. Good exercise, but not gonna win a fight.



    EDIT: Quoth TIME magazine: https://time.com/5448811/mma-kung-fu-xu-xiaodong/

    “I know Chinese MMA fighters who believe there are kung fu experts who live in mountain caves and can disappear and reappear at will,” says Anderson. He suspects ancient kung fu morphed toward the cabalistic because modern weaponry was making hand-to-hand combat less relevant. “It just isn’t efficient as a form of full-contact combat with a resisting opponent,” he says. “Bullfrog kung fu cannot be what defended the empire.”
