Who was more gorgeous, Caroni or Zarbon?

At first glance I would have assumed it was Zarbon. But I was watching DBZ ep 176 today, and noticed that Caroni is actually officially the most gorgeous man in the world. https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11133/111332564/6332364-screen+shot+2018-03-16+at+6.27.22+pm.png As I understand i...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I don't get your point at all. With the exception of Vegeta, the main cast are young or appear young. What about stories with older characters do you believe doesn't resonate with younger audiences? When we say young we're talking adolescent. Gohan is approaching middle aged and Goten, Trunks, and ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Goku become a kid again in GT was a smart idea from the staff. One of my problems with GT is how it's a shonen, but most of the main cast feels too old for this genre. I don't think a big part of the audience, especially the young target demographic, feels excited in seeing a shonen filled with old...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I like the way Goku is drawn in the Saiyan Saga better than his modern look. When Dragon Ball Z switched to the super-hard-edged look around the end of the Namek saga, I feel like it had a detrimental effect on Goku as a whole. Some characters, like Trunks, look pretty good in the newer style, but ...

Would Goku have agreed to destroying the present timeline Cell?

https://media.giphy.com/media/toXjLytDEqKjBy5KJr/giphy.gif I kind of feel bad for the present Cell. I mean, he wasn't even born yet. He was snuffed out before he even had a chance at life... most likely he would have grown up to be evil, but it's still tragic. His case is even cracked open and leak...

Re: I'm the Dr. Slump Wiki's new admin, and could use some help

Probably not very helpful, but I've always wanted to get into Dr. Slump! Specifically the original TV series, but it sounds like that'll be incredibly difficult due to the lack of a home video release. I do see that the original manga is available on comiXology, though! The manga is genuinely hyste...

Re: Do saiyans grow stronger as they fight, or just whenever they recover from near death?

Exactly, it's like a tangible, intense Saiyan-powered adrenaline rush. Very apt description. It also takes the age-old message that specific power gaps in numerical terms are largely meaningless, and emphasizes that they're a little extra meaningless for Saiyans, since under the right circumstances...

Re: What if Broly and Kale met

What's the story with that? They need 7 Saiyajin to bring back Goku but only have Vegeta, Gohan, Goten, Trunks, Pan and Bra so they bring back Broly but Broly is losing it so Vegeta (and later Paikuhan) need to teach him a lesson. He also attacks Bra when she brings him something to eat while she s...

Nothing really.

Best filler fight?

What is the best fight that is purely filler? I was thinking about it and realized that I don't think there's a single filler fight across the entire franchise that is actually... memorable.

Did Vegeta inherit his sense of timing from Freeza?

Episode 76, in the Japanese, Vegeta states it will take "several more minutes" for Kakarot to heal from his wounds. Vegeta says this before Freeza even showed up, and Goku obviously doesn't awake until Freeza is in his true form and killing Vegeta. So, did all that struggle against Freeza'...

Re: At which moment did Vegeta begin to respect Goku?

Vegeta must be a really hard guy to impress. Gohan was throwing hands with Freeza and the Ginyu Special Forces when he was like, five. Vegeta was literally right there watching it go down. Let alone all the chaos at the Cell Games. Yet only just now does he begin to respect Gohan? The onehanded Kame...

Never, he merely tolerates them.

He doesn't even respect Gohan, Piccolo, Bulma, or Trunks?

Do saiyans grow stronger as they fight, or just whenever they recover from near death?

The standard thinking has always been that whenever a saiyan is injured in battle to the point of nearly dying, if they recover, they will become much more powerful than they were before. But in that BoG interview (the same interview with the 6-10-15 scale) Toriyama mentioned saiyans grow stronger a...

At which moment did Vegeta begin to respect Goku?

Saiyans - Vegeta shows surprise and anger at Kakarotto's battle power, but ultimately he isn't really bothered by it and treats Goku like his disposable plaything. Kaioken x3 and x4 both bring out genuine wrath in Vegeta, but that's because of the fact that Kakarotto is such a low-life, so even at t...

Re: Why does Funimation refuse to acknowledge the term "Ki"?

Why would they though? Ki is a Japanese word. Translated, it basically does just mean life energy. Why would they randomly leave this word untranslated?
