Kamehameha: Cutting a Bullet: A Real Life Ginji Matsuzaki (Isao Machii)

“Kamehameha” is a series of post where we examine various action scenes from movies, anime, and cartoons, to name a few. It’s name comes from one of the most famous special moves in Dragon Ball Z. We chose a DBZ reference because it’s the definition of an action show…minus the drawn out stare down filler.

Another “Kamehameha.” Here we go. Today, we’ll look at Black Lagoon’s Ginji Matsuzaki.  In case you forgot, Ginji is the personal bodyguard of Yukio Washimine, heir to the Washimine Group.  This guy is so freaking badass, that he has the ability to cut a bullet in two. Not much else to say. Here’s his final duel with Revy below:

Only one thing to note: if it wasn’t for Yukio, Ginji would have finished Revy. Of course Revy can’t die, since she’s the titular character of the manga/show. Nonetheless, Ginji was the better fighter. The second part of this post deals with Isao Michii, a Japanese swordsman who can cleave a BB pellet in two. He’s a Guinness World Record holder for Senbongiri, which is 1000 cuts on targets in the fastest time.  I stumbled upon this video (which was recorded on Stan Lee’s Superhumans on Sept. 16, 2010) on 9gag (like many others), which resulted in the below video going from a couple thousand views to over a million views (over 9000!!!…ok wrong time for that). A real life Ginji indeed.
