Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

Please keep in mind that this discussion thread is for the upcoming promotional anime, which has not yet been released. Any in-universe (in-game?) strength comparisons would be best suited for an in-universe discussion (consider using The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread ), or perhaps within a ...

Re: New Dragon Ball has succeeded where new Star Wars failed

At this point we have gone beyond the intended point (?) of this thread. While some of the expertise and social commentary shared here is certainly appreciated and well-informed, at this point it's entirely in service of Star Wars discussions; we will ask that everyone try to keep things tangentiall...

Re: why do fans of One Piece and Naruto Shippuden critisize Dragon Ball a lot?

You know i have interacted with quite a few fanbases of shows i like but one thing that i have noticed something special about the dragonball fanbase. Its one of the very few fanbases that tries to pass of what most people(including those that are of this specific opinion)agree that is bad writing ...

Re: How is Trunks' moments anymore of an ass pull then Gohan/Goku?

What definition of asspull are we even using? We're not. It's a grossly reductive term that people use to get out of having a real conversation without offering thoughtful commentary, and to dismiss their peers without truly considering their viewpoints. That it was entertained as long as it origin...

Again: you're just saying the same basic thing over and over and over, in this thread and elsewhere. It's OK to like what you like, but we ask a little more of our community members.

Re: why do fans of One Piece and Naruto Shippuden critisize Dragon Ball a lot?

At the risk of sounding like a broken record: seems to me the root of the issue is these theoretical Naruto boogeyman fans experiencing the entire story of THAT series, while only ever watching Dragon Ball Z . But again, there don't need to be "sides". It's ridiculous to be so reductive ab...

Re: Would cell have been a better choice?

Then super happened and since Frieza is basically the only returning villain in the franchise at this point. Now in super? It's just him You seem to be hyper-focused on kneejerk-reactionary responses to people, with this single-minded track of constantly talking about (justifying?) Freeza's return....

Re: Would cell have been a better choice?

just as an especially noteworthy, important villain, same as both Piccolo Daimao before him and Cell (and then Boo) after. Wanna really help to highlight this, because this is one of the most iconic pieces of "villains" artwork that comes to mind for me: http://www.daizex.com/misc_stuff/g...

Re: why do fans of One Piece and Naruto Shippuden critisize Dragon Ball a lot?

Probably because they're annoyed that Dragon Ball isn't bogged down with boring back stories, forced romances, overly sappy drivel, constant childish gags and gimmicks, shoe horned in female characters all with big boobs and villains being beaten after having a sentimental heart to heart conversati...

Re: How come Devilman (1972) has higher-quality audio than DB/DBZ?

We don't really need to know the details of your piracy habits. That particular Devilman production was a limited run of episodes. Keeping all of the master production materials for something of the era like that is infinitely easier than doing so with a never-ending (until it actually ends) show li...
