Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

GCN is because National Geographic Channel had copyrighted NGC in the USA, so Nintendo had to use GCN in the English-speaking world. PSX, I have no clue. Doing some research, PSX was the original codename for the first PlayStation and it was briefly used in very early US marketing after some initia...

Re: What is the best single Volume of Dragon Ball?

Honestly I don't think this is a very good question. Your words cut deep. However yes it was a direct comparison of just an individual volume regardless of where it cuts in and cuts off. Otherwise it'd just be the same question of what is the best story arc. Ah, sorry if that was too harsh. I guess...

Re: What is the best single Volume of Dragon Ball?

Honestly I don't think this is a very good question. Outside of a US-exclusive break between the DB and Z Chapters, the Tankobons are arbitrarily split by Chapter count, not for any narrative reasons, so the breaks can feel really random and unchoreographed. This is why I had a bit of an issue when ...

Also, whenever people say “Teen Gohan”, I’ve always thot of the one who’s like 15 or 16. Who, the games call “Adult Gohan”, rite?

Because everyone who attends high school is a fully-grown adult, haha.

Re: Skill and Intelligence in Dragonball is highly overrated

As RoF showed (and Super Perfect Cell), just because you have a fancy new form doesn't automatically mean you'll win. That argument goes both ways in this case. Correct, but SS3 in itself showed my argument against Buu; Gotenks went at Super Buu with SS3 and lost, and Goku had to do without it in t...

Re: Skill and Intelligence in Dragonball is highly overrated

There was no suggestion nor evidence that Goku could have beaten him in just SSJ2. Vegeta was mad that Goku could have went SSJ3 (and could have handled Fat Buu, meaning he didn't have to die). If Goku was holding in his SSJ2 form Vegeta would have noticed and forced him to get serious. But... Vege...

Re: Skill and Intelligence in Dragonball is highly overrated

People like to argue that Goku is better trained, more skilled and smarter (in combat) than Vegeta, yet when the 2 of them fought with equal levels of power (SSJ2 Goku vs Majin Vegeta) Goku couldn't actually beat him. If anything, it looked like Vegeta had the edge that entire fight. If skill and b...

Re: Skill and Intelligence in Dragonball is highly overrated

Personally I've always felt that Goku was the most clever when it comes to fighting because a lot of the time he's thinking about what I call battle tactics. That is to say, he's not just thinking about the next move, but the move after the move after that, three steps ahead. He's able to weigh up t...

Wow, way to stay on topic there. This is about why she doesn't voice Kid Goku/Gohan anymore, not an excuse to bash her performances. Yep, the DB community has a real issue blurring the lines between opinions and facts. I'm not one of those 'if you have nothing good to say then don't say it' but don...

Re: So Son Goku was actually sent from Planet Vegeta as a kid, not as a baby?

Retconning Bardock is the bigger travesty Toriyama should have kept his paws from writing Minus. Minus absolutely craps on the manga and Bardock's character. How did Toriyama retcon/crap-on a character he'd previously wrote practically nothing about? Please tell me how he retcond himself. I'm guess...

Re: How good was the Saiyan Saga as a jumping on point?

It's fine as a "start here for an awesome showing of why it's so good", but it doesn't give the viewer any support on where the characters come from, their relation to each other, or what makes them tick. Not to mention later stories also assume the viewers have a familiarity with the Drag...

Re: So Son Goku was actually sent from Planet Vegeta as a kid, not as a baby?

I think Goku being a kid in Minus might come from this: Roshi specifically calls him a kid, not baby which coupled with Goku & Bulma's age difference back to being only two years and not four may point to Toriyama just re-reading the Hunt for DBs arc and basing things in Minus off of that. It c...

Re: General "Canon/Filler" Debate/Discussion

It's not necessary that the author say his own story is canon. If it isn't, why people claim the retellings are canonical when they should say that to the movies? As we know the former are adaptations and the latter came straight from Toriyama. And why people pretend Dragon Ball Online does not eve...
