Re: Out of Character Moments in the series

Except you didn't dismantle it. You typed down why you think Gohan wasn't OOC, you got proven wrong on all of your points, and have now ceased replying to those you were debating because you couldn't counteract their solid arguments. You are outrageously delusional, as are your ilk. You utterly fai...

Re: Out of Character Moments in the series

It's funny how, for pages after I dismantled this "Gohan is OoC in the Cell Games" argument, the "debate" rages on between the two people who are just patting themselves on the back for agreeing with each other over it. Maybe Dragon Ball is a little too exhausting to interpret fo...

Re: Your personal canon (AGAIN!)

Canon: 42 volumes of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball manga (yeah, there's some leeway there, but very little)

Not canon: Everything else ever.

Re: Is Dragon Ball among your top favorite Shonen Jump manga

My problem with One Piece is reading summaries about it is more entertaining that following the manga itself. I read summaries and profiles and go, "Huh, wow, that's really interesting and creative." Then I try to read the actual manga and twelve hours later I awaken in a hospital with an ...

Re: Is Dragon Ball among your top favorite Shonen Jump manga

I don't read a lot of Shonen Jump manga, because most of it is terrible. Naruto, Bleach, etc, are terrible. One Piece has a lot of creativity, at least, but its plot is a meandering mess. It's gone everywhere and yet nowhere. In the hundreds of chapters, nobody's made the slightest bit of head way i...

Re: Out of Character Moments in the series

The issue is with his unwillingness to fight. He's willing to fight, but at the moment, is unable to. Apparently, you don't understand emotions. At all. Apparently your reading comprehension skills aren't much better than those you criticize, I mean at the start of the battle when he tells Cell tha...

Re: Did Goku Need More Development?

His simplicity is what makes him charming. Some characters you want to see fully fleshed, with complicated egos and motivations, and that's good, we should want to see that, generally. Goku? He likes a good fight. Sure, we see him approach combat a bit differently, learn that other people don't quit...

Re: Out of Character Moments in the series

Gohan never feared hurting others with his power in other parts of the story. Gohan always reacted in the moment before, in the story. When enraged, he didn't have time to consider if was going to hurt others with his power. Here, in the Cell Games, there was an expectation to be met, and he couldn...

By my extensive reasoning and logical arguments Oh, you mean the ones that were just destroyed previously? Destroyed? By who? You? Ahahahaha, please. You continue to humiliate yourself. Maybe this sort of thing works out in, say, the Pojo forums, but here, it's worthless. Where's your arguments? Wh...

Re: Out of Character Moments in the series

As I've proven again and again, the people who think Gohan is OoC in the Cell Games have no ground to stand on whatsoever. The lack of reading comprehension in this thread is staggering. I know this will probably sound ironic coming from me, but how about you actually prove to us how Gohan wasn't O...

Re: Did Goku Need More Development?

Admittedly, Goku is pretty static, but he's also the gravitational force by which other characters change and develop, and a plot catalyst made flesh... er, ink. He's sort of like Lupin III in that way, though less episodic. Lupin is going to be Lupin in every tale. Lupin doesn't really change that ...

Re: Buu Saga Kai

I doubt Funimation gives a shit about the aspect ratio anymore. In fact, I think cropping was preferred by their customers for some reason. They held a survey on it for the new bluray sets, didn't they? That was pretty frustrating. They were probably going to release it in 16:9 anyway. They just re...

Re: Times when a Dub > Original

Nozawa plays every character that she's cast as very well. BUT I will agree with the notion that maybe she didn't need to play every character she was cast as. Goku, obviously. No matter what age, no matter what. Goku. This is the only character Nozawa ABSOLUTELY MUST BE. Gohan, okay. Maybe not nece...

Re: Times when a Dub > Original

I was baffled when Kelamis fans started to pop up. I remember the initial reaction to him was all negative. How does anyone not hear that Goofy cadence to his delivery? I would flip it, he's awful despite a few shining moments, most of which are battle screams. Yeah, he does have that cadence to hi...

Re: Buu Saga Kai

The same way that when Toriyama mused that it would be neat if Vegeta was the focus of the next DBZ movie, should there be one, everybody is now expecting Vegeta: The Movie.
