8-Man

Just found out that Viz's translation of Gokuu's pet-name for Android #8 at "8-Man" may've been inspired by the 1960s manga 8-Man , featuring a cyborg protagonist. So this makes it more acceptable, in my eyes, if it's at least a reference (regardless of whether or not it's for the sake of ...

Re: Gohan, the Super Saiyan (Grade) 5

Random thought: Knowing the timeframe of this, and that "Super Saiyan 2" wasn't even necessarily a concrete thought yet in Toriyama's mind at the time, perhaps this could explain some of the confusion/debate over whether or not Gohan was Super Saiyan 2 versus Dabra? Maybe Toriyama wasn't ...

Re: "Super Saiyan 2" before Goku named it

"Beyond-the-Beyond Super Saiyan"? :? You know, I wonder if, before Goku "officially" named it "Super Saiyan 2", it was just treated as regular Super Saiyan, along with the Grades. For example, after Gohan becomes SS2 against Kibito at the 25th TB, he says, "Now I'm...

Re: Why did Toriyama change the design of the Super Saiyan?

More and more, I'm starting to think the sparks have nothing to do with SS2 and are just about power. Of course, it's also likely that Toriyama's art style changed over the years but I don't find that answer satisfactory to me. :P Same here. Especially since, even in the actual original manga, Vege...

Despite the fact that Gokuu is seen riding the Kinto'un after Gohan was born.

Re: Sexy Fan Art Thread (No porn!)

I'm not sure just how borderline some of these pictures are, but whatever. I guess it's not porn if no breasts or genitalia are shown. http://img715.imageshack.us/img715/7504/catgokuu.jpg http://img854.imageshack.us/img854/2994/brolypoly13.jpg http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/1571/femgotenxtrunks.jp...

Ginyuu's veins

Why does Captain Ginyuu have all those veins on his forehead, even when he's not stressed? Is it part of his mutation, perhaps related to his body-swapping ability? Or simply a stylistic pattern choice by Akira Toriyama?

DB anime in 1st FMA anime's creative style?

How would you feel if Toei , or even another animation studio, made another Dragon Ball anime that was loosely adapted from the manga similarly to the first Fullmetal Alchemist anime? In that, it followed the events of the first couple volumes and/or up until the latter half of the series, before di...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

So we've got "Super-bitch", "Super-witch", "stomp-a-bitch", "stop-the-grinch", and some of my own: "stop-the-grinch" and "pop-a-bitch". Any of those, or something else, would work for humorous manglings of "Spopovich".

Re: Why Did Vegeta Think Freeza Wouldn't Change Much?

Honestly even if he's a child it was pretty fucking stupid of Dende not to revive Vegeta.

Re: Does Chi-Chi know how to manipulate ki?

For a serious answer, no. She could only use the basic foundations of the Kame-sen style of martial arts that Gyuumaou had passed down to her. For a non-serious answer, she was the first person to master the Kaiouken before Gokuu (the technique was actually named after her, not Kaiou, since she is t...

Re: Capsule Corp. and the Red Ribbon Army

I see how it is. Everything we thought about the Red Ribbon Army is a lie. The Red Ribbon Army wasn't evil at all. It was propaganda by the Capsule Corporation in order to get more of the vehicle market. Goku was paid by Bulma in secret to make Bulma and her family even richer. It's all a giant con...

Re: How long does time pass in the after life compared to Ea

I guess he just meant that time didn't have much meaning in the afterlife, since your body isn't susceptible to age, death, or even deadlines. There may be exceptions, but who knows? We didn't get to explore enough of the afterlife and its...what's the word, culture? *shrugs*...in the manga.
