Re: Net Neutrality is gone. How does that affect DragonBall?

How does this affect websites like Kanzenshuu? I assume that, the more well-known a website or online service is, the more likely it is that it'll be affected? Or am I wrong about that? No-one knows. Your ISP may classify it under a "social" category due to the forum and its traffic. That...

Re: Net Neutrality is gone. How does that affect DragonBall?

Thinking that this isn't already happening elsewhere in the world and won't spread even further, and somehow is isolated to dubs of a TV show, is extremely ignorant and/or naive.

Please, please, please folks: do some good, solid, long-form reading before shrugging over real-life issues.

Re: Net Neutrality is gone. How does that affect DragonBall?

So does that mean the simulcasts on Crunchyroll and FUNimation for Super will end? No. An extremely gross reduction of the issue with a hypothetical scenario: You use Verizon for your internet service provider (ISP). With net neutrality gone, Verizon decides that they will begin offering internet s...

Re: Net Neutrality is gone. How does that affect DragonBall?

The content of series itself? No, of course not. The distribution of the series in all its forms? To essentially every other country in the world? Through all digital means? Even purchasing physical copies of items through digital storefronts? How can it not affect Dragon Ball , and literally every ...

Re: Are the Japanese voices of Dragon Ball too much recycled and full of Miscast?

Yeah, Japanese cast isn't very good tbh...Very miscast as you put it! You're not answering the actual question at hand, specifically regarding the recycling of actors/actresses in to multiple roles. Your (single-sentence) posts thus far seem to be focused around promoting your love of FUNimation's ...

Re: Where does this image come form?

It's a combination of childish "for the lulz" and occasionally for profit when it's hosted on a page with advertisements.

Re: Where does this image come form?

It's a fake picture from February 2015 constructed using artwork of Bianca from Dragon Quest V with text cobbled together from Japanese Wikipedia. Folks at the time were trying to pass it off as promotion for Tights' (then still-not-yet-existent) appearance in Dragon Ball Super.

Re: Roshi's antics

Social commentary and analysis has been in the DNA of Kanzenshuu dating back to a time before that name ever existed. From Julian's original coverage of the Toys R Us manga incident in 2000, to my own coverage of the manga being pulled from a Maryland school library (and subsequently labeled as chil...

Re: Roshi's antics

This is a great point too. Why does no one get offended of the idea of Goku getting Kaio killed and basically refusing to ever revive him? It's been acknowledged by fans and in-series. Also, he's a blue cat-fish god that doesn't have a real-life parallel . Furthermore, and I'm getting blunt at this...

Re: Goku's Stamina In Battle: A Deeper Look At Self Improvement

I'm sure it's been brought up in other conversations and bits of context, but I don't see it mentioned here yet, and I'd like to throw it in. Why isn't anyone here bringing up the idea of the "runner's high"? In a nutshell, it's this point where your exhaustion is quite palpable, but you h...

You say this as if this isn't obvious. I wonder if you're just trying to be contrarian at this point and willfully ignoring everything else being said.

Yes, of course human beings can kill other people.

Why are you writing this?

Re: Roshi's antics

why's there a weird double standard here? Humans can't actually fly around under their own power firing energy blasts through people and eating aliens in space and destroying planets from the safety of their intergalactic space pods. Humans actually can go around slapping women's butts and threaten...

Re: List of things wrong with Dragon ball evolution

I don't think it's unrecognizable as Dragon Ball at all.

Of course, my view is that Evolution's worst offense is how plain and middle of the road and safe everything about it is.

I don't know how or why I have to explain why reaffirming rape culture is a bad thing.

Re: List of things wrong with Dragon ball evolution

The tail was a conscious choice and obvious easy change to not make it 100% ridiculous in live action, particularly with the actors and budget they had. Ki attacks have literally been used the same way in Super now. Yamcha is a perfectly competent and talented fighter with tremendous power. Things y...
