Re: Dragon Ball voted third best manga of the Heisei era (1989-2019)

One Piece, the king as usual. :clap: Shingeki's popularity is also pretty damn impressive. Surprised, no Togashi titles made it, but oh well. Togashi's Yuu Yuu Hakusho was good but i can't say the same for Hunter x Hunter atleast in manga form. The art is lazy in weekly releases, the over-expositio...

Saikyo no Senshi wrote:So at the basic level, it is a mix of DB Minus, bunch of Movie 8 references and straight up ripping off Movie 12. Lmao Toriyama. Not that surprising, but still pretty funny. JP fan reactions will be fun to follow.

Do you mind telling me where you follow the Japanese fans reactions?

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

I've heard latino Goku and it's just not a good fit. His performance sounds like those dubs you hear when you switch language tracks on a DVD - not convincing or fitting. I can see where you're coming from but i was talking in terms of macho spirit and manliness. Sean's Goku sounds like a Macho dee...

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

I actually find Sean Schemmel's Goku overall to be very forced and overly raspy. It's like FUNimation is trying to promote how macho and manly they can sound. Ocean dub never really tries to show off their Macho-ness that's why all three Goku voices in it sound calm and not overly deep or raspy like...

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

Can't believe i am seeing this question in 2018 and that too on a sight like Kanzenshuu, To be fair, he was posting shallow bait threads in other places too, like on the Super forum. Which is why he was banned. Kanzenshuu has gotten a bad rap for simply primarily preferring the Japanese version, so...

Re: Times when Anime outdid the manga scenes

Goku Black arc is an example of horribly written Bad Amalgamation of Boo and Cell arc by incorporating Potara and Time Travel concepts but this time things not making sense. In Original Run, there was a valid reason for Piccolo and Earth God being connected and why death of one guy can cause other ...

Re: Times when Anime outdid the manga scenes

The anime outright handles the Majin Boo arc waayyyyyy better than Toriyama does in the manga. I also love the adaption of the Saiyan arc (even if a few filler episodes kinda stink). The handling of the Android/Cell arc is mostly better in the anime, and the Freeza arc is a huge mixed bag. Everythi...

Re: Things that grind your gears

Also, one of most annoying aspects from New DBS fans after Zamasu arc is how they deflect shit writing in DBS on DBZ, and use the "you're blinded by nostalgia" card everytime. Look at the comments on Swagkage videos on Super for example, that guy actually summed up the state of franchise ...

Re: If Dragonball was written/directed by another big named anime creator/mangaka, who would you want it to be?

It would be interesting if Hirohiko Araki would write Dragon Ball, his fashion sense, bizarre elements he incorporates in his story and unique Powers given to the characters is fun to watch. Eichiro Oda with his awesome crafting, exploring of the World, the underlying overarching plot of navy, World...

Fans making a big deal out of cell arc as if it's as fucked up as black goku arc and exaggerating the "bad writing" and totally ignoring the character development, themes or the overall story behind it.

Re: Times when Anime outdid the manga scenes

Literally every single fight scene. I know this might be an unpopular opinion, but I can only enjoy the manga for the more dialogue-heavy scenes. Granted, being introduced to Dragon Ball through the anime first probably has something to do with it, but black-and-white still frames have nothing on c...

Times when Anime outdid the manga scenes

Dragon Ball manga is well praised for being a well paced manga compared to how things went rather slowly. But, sometimes due to break-neck pace of the manga some things were rather rushed a little or not explored that well. But sometimes the anime took things from source material and improved it in ...

Um..litterally every transformation in Z is an asspull.

I think what he's referring to is how both of those brought in a huge influx of fans old and new (mostly old) to the forefront, and that just makes it more likely for heated discussions to break out into something worse simply because there's more people in the room with conflicting opinions and ou...

Re: Future Trunks Timeline in Android arc could have been saved if Goku took actions from otherworld?

Goku definitely did not keep his body after dying in Trunks’ timeline nor did anyone else. The only reason Goku keeps his body is because Kami pulls strings the first time around and he sacrificed himself against Cell the second. Dying in Dragon Ball doesn’t guarantee you a body in the afterlife. G...

Re: Future Trunks Timeline in Android arc could have been saved if Goku took actions from otherworld?

Unless Toriyama retconed what souls look like, Goku, Kaio and Bubbles should just look like floating clouds in the after life with no bodies at all. That's why I don't think they're souls, but already have physical forms. again, Goku and Kaio were supposed to be shown in personified way. Goku that'...

Well, for starters there's the fact all the characters are flanderised beyond recognition I honestly find this criticism to be pretty baffling. To me, the characterizations are identical to what they have been and to what you should expect from the characters at this point in the series. Maybe your...
