Sorry, whaleblue, you're way off base.
1st. this has been discussed thoroughly before.
2nd. It's been shown that gear 2 jet attacks are merely faster versions of the original attacks.
There is no air pulse or rankyaku type attack for any strawhat attack other than zoro's # pound cannons.
sorry i dint know it discussed b4. This topic is just base on
whether luffy using "air pulse" or not?
If SBS do say that luffy attack are ONLY base on physical.(i m not sure :p)
then i will suggest we stop this topic,
since we are just assuming and guessing.
why dont we talk about luffy potentially have the ability to sending out "air pulse"?
I know luffy are using gear 2.
but did anybody see whats the diffirent/ any chancing of the move after using gear 2?
we know luffy and zoro sending an air pulse(pound cannon??) to Aqua Laguna.
making a large hole to the tidal wave.
we all assume that zoro and luffy are almost same or same in the power level.
we know zoro can cut things without actual contact to the object.
sometime he just sending a air blade out.
The 'Air Attacking Theory' behind Luffy's Gear 2nd was plausible until the final attack against Lucci,
where Luffy's fists were shown making physical contact with Lucci's body.
Before that, it was debatable whether he attacked so quickly that it created the after-bursts of air,
or whether he simply 'punched air' towards his opponent.
luffy do have pysical contact with lucci's body,
doesnt mean he cant create second time attack with air pulse.
why cant luffy sending air pulse?
1. he making one(pound cannon?) before, it is very powerful.
if it is powerful enough, i dont see why he donwan to use it againts the enermy?
2. since many people say that luffy are slightly stronger then zoro,
why cant he included air pulse actack?
3. we do see diffirent in move right? 1st luffy apply physical force to opponent,
then we do see second level of force is stronger then the 1st attack.
the opponent will send/shot fly far away.
IF luffy doent use "air pulse" in cp9 arc, why dont he use "air pulse" in future?
using air pulse attack will be less impact to user body. when luffy attack to opponent's body
luffy still receive force and impact. luffy is rubber doenst make him not hurt,
it just less pain then his opponent only.
imagine how fast and how strong the gear 2 was, it sure hurt luffy body.
