Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

Can Hearts read everything (when I say everthing its EVERYTHING) that's going on people's mind? or do you have to think of something precisely so that he can read what you're thinking? It appears to be just whatever is specifically on the target's mind at the moment, as in both the game and manga h...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

I mean Lagss seems to be able to hold Cumber in her trap thing, so I assume thats an OP technique in combat if it can be used like that? I don't really get into that, but just objectively, Hearts is capable of holding Hit's wrist in place this chapter, for whatever that's worth, and in the arcade c...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

I assumed he was talking about the fact that Zamasu is now at least 50 percent physically Goku--so not the pure divine being he presents himself as--but I suppose it's up for a bit of interpretation. He also of course no longer holds any divine position.

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

Thanks for the translation as always Cipher! This chapter seems very interesting. Hearts being able to read his opponent's moves since he can "hear" their hearts, is basically mind reading. It's a pretty irritating technique since he can anticipate anything and be prepared for it. I like ...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

But why? Have you ever read anything by Goethe? He was an expressed antisemite, exceptionally hateful even within the context of 18th and 19th century Germany, yet he is considered one of the greatest writers of the German language. Or perhaps a better example would be Richard Wagner and his compos...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

I disagree. He wouldn't have made an entire comic like Lady Red if they were only social norms finding their way into his work, nor would he still continue to make jokes at the expense of women's sex appeal or promiscuity today. I feel like it's more than accurate to say they represent Toriyama's o...

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

What we get at the beginning of the Boo arc is fun (and the transition back to Goku not handled as gracefully as it could be), but no, I don't think he could've sustained the series, and I think Toriyama just had the sense as a storyteller to see the writing on the wall there. He's too reactionary; ...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

I'll say the same thing I always say when these threads come up: Kame-sennin's central gag is one of my least favorite elements of the series, and stands out as a significant blemish excusable only through the filter of its era (which doesn't mean it was ever okay; just that it represents keeping in...

I'll apologize for being flippant with my response if there's more context to it, but considering how riled up the fanbase can get with the smallest hints of news, especially involving material many members can't read, surely there was a better way to lay out a case than just saying "confirmed&...

Re: Finding the designer of Towa, and an amusing anecdote about Toriyama and Goten

Also, interesting to find out he didn't design Towa. Makes sense, she doesn't seem like his "type" of female character. I've always thought this as well. She's a little out of place. I thought maybe he was just hamming it up a little as a one-off, but it made so much sense to me to find o...

Finding the designer of Towa, and an amusing anecdote about Toriyama and Goten

A bit of a new discovery (for English-speaking fans) from the Twittersphere today, thanks to Kanzenshuu mod TheDevilsCorpse pointing my way to some year+-old tweets.

Why the fusion resulted in Gogeta and not Vegetto? Just because it wasn't with the Potara earrings? Yep. This is the first time we've ever gotten confirmation within the main, Toriyama-helmed series itself (rather than just extrapolating from Movie 12 and the manga, and later getting the same impli...

As someone who tweet a fan translation of Vegeta's lines during leaks, I'll stand fully behind the way Caleb Cook wrote it for this release. Vegeta's line is "ナメック星人には迷惑をかけた過去があってな これ以上数を減らすわけには行けない." Which Cook translated as "I have a troubled history with these Namekians. I did them...
