Re: Super Boo: The worst form of a main villain ever?

Bootenks/Boohan is really no worse than Perfect Cell. Which is kind of the problem considering how droll and bland Cell is. While I do think that persona works for Buu here because of what I posted earlier, it's true that Cell is kind of bland in terms of character. He's basically Freeza without th...

Saiyan Cooking (Health boost)

Full Power Energy Ball

Re: How much of Dragon Ball do you actually think is good?

The first arc is slow but things pick up during the 21st Tenkaichi Budokai though slows down again a bit Red Ribbon Army and Baba Palace arcs. Everything from the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai to the Freeza arc is great, near-flawless work. The Cell arc is decent but flawed. The Boo arc is when the writing...

Re: Who is the most evil character in Dragonball?

Freeza mainly because we literally saw him be given multiple chances to change his ways and he just throws them away. Other villains like Cell, Pure Boo (if only because he can't comprehend anything but evil), and Zamasu probably won't change if given a chance but Freeza's outright refusal to repent...

Re: Shifting The Focus From Goku

But Goku still stands out in large part because so many of those types copied him. And so what if Goku gets worse as long as it's interesting? Because it's not interesting. There's nothing endearing about a middle-aged man who still has the mentality of a 5 year old and only thinks of the next figh...

Re: Shifting The Focus From Goku

Goku's always been battle crazy. It makes him different and interesting than most protagonists. My issue is why do you think that putting someone else in the spotlight is preferable to ending things? What will putting someone else in the drivers seat fix? It was different and interesting when the s...

Re: Shifting The Focus From Goku

Dragon Ball is all about Goku so if you want a show that isn't about him, then Dragon Ball isn't for you. That's bull. Goku may be the main character but the series was never just about him. It's a story with an ensemble cast. Anyways, I would definitely welcome Goku taking a stand or something. Hi...

Oh that episode was horrible I totally agree. The gags weren't funny although it was cool to see Vegeta in a suit and trolling about how she was a gag character.

Most of Super's "attempt" at comedy is horrible. :P

Do you still think Gohan should've been the main character?

As we all know, Gohan was originally intended to replace Goku as the main character for Dragon Ball Z and by the end of the Cell Games, he does take the mantle but at the last second, Toriyama deems him unworthy for some reason. Quite a shame because Gohan had tons of potential is the new hero- in a...

Re: Vegeta voted greatest rival in Anime/Manga history by Japanese fans.

Vegeta is by far my favorite DB character but I don't think he's the best rival, that honor goes to Sasuke from Naruto. Unlike Vegeta he doesn't just follow in Naruto's footsteps or is always trying to catch up to him. Instead, he goes on his own adventures, fights his own villains, had his own tea...

Re: Is Dragon Ball still your favorite shonen?

Yes and not only my favorite shonen but favorite anime/manga in general. Many have come and surpassed it since it's heyday... hell, even titles from its time are better like Akira, any Studio Ghibli film, and arguably even other shonen like YuYu Hakusho. However, no other title has the same charm or...

Re: The Buu Arc as a Self Parody?

No. As much as I enjoy the Majin Boo arc, calling it a self-parody (outside Gotenks' shenanigans) is giving it a little too much credit. It's contrivances and faulty logic is just a result of Toriyama becoming disinterested in writing for the series and having little input from his editors.
