Re: What would you wish for?

As tempting as it is to wish for everyone to have Elven-style immortality (old age and disease don't kill you, you're more resilient than mortals, but not unkillable if you turn into Hitler / decide you want to die), I'd probably wind up wishing for something a bit more selfish, just so I don't have...

Re: Cell saga, last arc where every character is well utiliz

Re: Chaozu. I don't think he was poorly utilized, so much as kicked out of the main cast between arcs, exactly like Oolong and Puar. The three of them should go do some kinda street performances in a city for cash. Shapeshifting plus telekinesis are apparently useless in combat (somehow), but as spe...

Re: Toriyama is terrible at writing intelligent characters.

While I agree with most of this (Why even have a remote? He could just build it into his cybernetics! Have it automatically trigger if #17 or #18 is in proximity when his chassy is broken!), I'm going to speculate that Gero was probably not willing regarding the publication of the rough location of ...

Re: Chaozu being completely pointless after his debut

One might wonder what would have happened had the movies continued in the same continuity as the first 3 DB movies. Would movie 4 have included Piccolo killing Chaozu to take control over the Mifan empire, and that summing up Ten's motivation during the whole thing? Compare Chaozu to Puar or Oolong....

Does anyone have Yamucha Densetsu content?

Did anyone happen to save anything from this site, and is anyone willing to share any of said saves? I went looking for the Legend of Shenlong review on Yamucha Densetsu, and found that the domain has expired, and the internet archive doesn't have everything (though it has a few versions of the main...

Re: So didn't Ginyu die for good when Buu blew up the Earth?

I was always under the impression that the frog in the "Gohan's Birthday" filler episode was Ginyu, exhausted after his lengthy search for Goku's house. I suppose the question comes down to: was Ginyu an evil frog? The Filler that showed him at Capsule Corp made it seem like he was trying ...

Re: Freeza is the Protagonist of Resurrection F

Was Freeza the protagonist? Sure, I can buy that. After all, the plot was driven largely by his character. Even the plot to resurrect him came from the memory of his charisma and leadership and all-around badassery. The fighting happened because he actively refused to listen to reason. He lost becau...

Re: Saiyan Saga plot hole?

Regarding "They didn't know the saiyans would be traveling at the time": Wasn't this wish made within 30 hours of the Saiyans' arrival? The argument still applies, but the likelyhood of the wish happening while they weren't in transit goes way down, so close to the deadline. The "Just...

Since no one else is going to do it: If Oda wrote Dragonball: ⋅  All the anime filler prior to the fight with Freeza (and possibly some therein) would probably be in the manga. (Justification: most of it's world building/references/explanations, which Oda seems to like.) ⋅  Dr. F...

The last few posts have really hit the nail on the head (then ripped its arm off). I'm having a hard time thinking of any better parents in the series, other than Gohan and Videl (and we just assume they're good parents from what little we see of them as parents combined with their premarital person...

Re: If You Could Change The Previous Villains.

I vaguely like the idea of Mecha Freeza's tech being relevant to the strength of Gero's creations. Superperfect Cell feels like a cheap move to add a dramatic final showdown, possibly to prevent the arc from ending on a depressing note ("Gohan is the strongest in the universe, but fails as a he...

Re: Why didn't Fut. Bulma tell Fut. Trunks about Gero's Lab?

Yeah, I've just been assuming that she looked it up after they got the warning, and that this wasn't an option by the time Bulma built her time machine in the doomed timeline. Makes me wonder, though... her dad's science magazines seem like they'd come in real handy when figuring out how to kick tim...

Re: Chichi's training (or lack there of)

I seem to remember the battle power readings during the Saibamen "tournament" being used specifically to point out that the readings were unreliable (I'd say Vegeta's skepticism in the system was sealed when he crushed his scouter). So far as I can tell, Yamcha beat a Saibaman, which puts ...

Specifically, why didn't Chichi do any combat training during the Saiyan arc? She went to the 23rd tournament just to beat marriage out of Goku. Sure, she settled down and became a housewife shortly there after, but her husband kinda died, her son got kidnapped and everyone who knew anything about i...

Re: The Common Enemy

The main difference that comes to mind, when comparing Mr. Buu to the Evil Buu that attacked the lookout, is that Evil Buu doesn't give a damn. He takes what he wants when he wants it, and basically disposed of the idea of right and wrong entirely. He could conceivably be manipulated into a fragile ...
