What is a Man?

So yeah, Tactics Ogre arrived in the mail yesterday so posts may be a bit . . . sparse for a while.

Let's have a quickie from Sakigake!! Otokojuku. This is from episode 23. The group of beefcake heroes is stopped by a guardian and cannot proceed until they answer his riddle. Kinda like that scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail ("What . . . is your favorite color!") But this question is tough. After all, just what is a man, at it's core?

DING DING DING! We have an answer!

But the question is only repeated. Was that not good enough?

Toramaru (who, coincidentally, is totally my favorite character :3) decides that maybe a demonstration is in order!

If a straight answer won't suffice maybe a strip tease will!

Sakigake, folks.
