Re: Would you still be as engaged in Dragonball fandom if Super did not exist?

I'm in it for the long haul. Super does nothing but add material (and complications) to everything we already still have yet to accomplish! To me, it (Super) is the least interesting thing we have/do/cover/document.

Re: What will be Kefura's occidental name?

I understand and tbh Kafla sounds a lot better... but in english I feel like it should be Cauliflo because it comes from "Cauliflower" but I'm still waiting for the official name. I already explained how "Cauliflo" is perfectly fine, though we did not go with that. Certain peopl...

Re: What will be Kefura's occidental name?

We went with "Caulifla" slightly in part to preserve a bit of the pronunciation; the "o" in "cauliflower" isn't really a long "o" sound, and spelling it with an "a" preserves that better. I don't have a problem at all if someone goes with "Cauli...

Again, you simply liking something more than something else doesn't have any relevance to a non-existent declaration of canonicity.

Categorizing something as canonical simply because you like it more has... well, very little to do with anything other than it being a transparent tactic to justify your own personal interests. It has historically been a similar sentiment thrown at the Trunks TV special over "TRUNKS THE STORY&q...

Re: So idk if there has been a thread on this but manga or anime as canon???

You've mentioned a few times how Toyotaro writes under a pen name, and all else aside I don't see how that's relevant. Plenty of major manga artists go under pen names: Monkey Punch, Yudetamago, ONE...heck even Toriyama has said that he regrets not using a pen name. It's really got nothing to do wi...

One could just watch the 2 movies then move on to Champa's manga arc with no problems. It happens with other franchises so why not here ? I don't see anyone calling the new star wars game a side thing because it requires previous knowledge of another format (the movies). The video game analogy does...

I've.......... never actually said that this can't simultaneously be promotional and yet still go off in its own direction. Yes, clearly the Super manga has gained some degree of independence. Yes, clearly Toyotaro has been given a chance to incorporate ideas of his own, some of which are now part o...

Re: Whats with the people who accuse Super of supporting feminism and other SJW stuff?

People with no real experience doing critique tend to look for external scapegoats above all else. These kinds of people are the same kinds of people who are born and bred in the sheltered, gross, boys' club corners of the internet. When you combine that all into a Dragon Ball "fan", you g...

Re: Dragon Ball FighterZ Guest Characters?

I'd really only be interested in the main protagonist from another hyper-kinetic Shueisha / Jump series, honestly. FighterZ is really playing up a classic roster, so I'd be wary of including any of the flavor-of-the-week shonen protagonists, even from seemingly massive recent hits like My Hero Acade...

Individuals expressing their dislike of a scene with poorly-written forum and social media posts generally consisting of the word "asspull" over and over does not actually make something "controversial". Blue being portrayed as a pedophile is "controversial". Popo in bl...

Re: I think feminism is the reason for the overpowered female characters

This thread reminds me of the Roshi one we had when people were calling him a rapist. This adds nothing to the discussion. This website is the last place I wanted to see politics being discussed.

Re: I think feminism is the reason for the overpowered female characters

Nah, Toriyama was making strong independent female characters since the beginning. In 1980s Japan where feminism was / is nonexistent, he was a pioneer. I... really wouldn't go that far. In the same series, the vast majority of these women either got written out entirely or were ultimately relegate...

Re: I think feminism is the reason for the overpowered female characters

I speak from experience and from someone who grew up watching Toonami in the west. I'd say 90% of the DBZ fans at school were male and most of the people I know watching Super are also male. Do you have any current stats that say the DBS readership/viewership is split 50/50 between both genders? I'...

Re: I think feminism is the reason for the overpowered female characters

DBZ has and always will be a shounen anime. That's who buys most of their merchandise. Dragon Ball was one of the many series at the time that invigorated an entirely new audience for shonen in Japan (something Daryl Surat calls "neo-shonen", which I had him write about for our 30th anniv...

This kind of specific drive-by commentary is eyeroll-inducing and not particularly welcome. Please add actual substance to your posts.
