Re: Vic Mignogna

I actually somewhat agree to this, if only to an extent. My honest hunch is that he's probably guilty. It's as you've said, the innocent side has a bit more difficulty explaining their side of the argument, hence the conspiracies with the more extreme of them ..yet I still maintain that both sides ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

So, without any actual evidence he's innocent until proven guilty. I don't care if someone says "I was told that he touched a girl on her private parts" because if you can't provide proof, that doesn't count. The only people who know what actually went down are Vic and the accusers. As lo...

Re: What would you change about the Broly movie?

Definitely gut the CG. It never looks nice. For the weird pocket dimension they go into, it'd have been sweet to get Masaaki Yuasa on that shit. It'd also have been nice to see Masaki Sato come back to animate a cut for the film (or the ending, as he was planned to do). The soundtrack could have use...

Re: What Top 10 Characters Do You Want to see Return when Super Comes Back!

Son Goku, Vegeta, Beerus, and Whis: - These are arguably Super's four main characters. The former two being the students, and the latter two being the teachers. Until such time that the two Saiyans "graduate" from "Whis University", the story revolving around these four is not d...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I'm not isolating anything from its context. It's specifically because of its context, a man meeting his fans, that it's nothing more than an innocuous greeting that does not constitute sexual assault. Imagine thinking that being someone's fan means you tactictly consent to unsolicited physical con...

Re: Is Dragon Ball Your Favorite Anime Ever?

It used to be my favorite anime, but I've become less interested in anime that are adaptations of a manga (unless the adaptation is unconventional and done by another auteur entirely, like Masaaki Yuasa's take on Go Nagai's work with Devilman Crybaby ), especially serialized ones that are created wh...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I'm replying to this because it's an interesting point. Legally, yes. I don't think you're ethically responsible for a stranger's life, no matter the circumstance. We should strive to do good, for an altruistic and empathetic society benefits even the selfish, but you are not responsible for others...

However, he brings up arguments here that hinge on premises that are false, puzzling, or otherwise troubling. As food for thought, for the sake of...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

I said "it should be more troubling" meaning I don't think it's the case. The point was: the people who are concerned over the depiction of sexuality in Dragon Ball should be more concerned with the depiction of kid Goku's penis. I , personally, don't care either way. Okay. Why "shou...

Re: Do you still care about the end of Z?

Of course. It's how the original, actual, Dragon Ball story in general, and the Boo arc in particular, actually ends (let nobody who tells you "I never watched/read the epilogue" also tell you that they completed the Boo arc). This midquel can re-contextualize the ending however it wants, ...

Re: Why Battle of Gods will always be the best Dragon Ball Movie EVER!

Everything about this movie was just PERFECT! When it comes to character design/art style, Battle of Gods is tied with Resurrection F for absolute dead last , with everyone looking like they're bulbous and covered in oil. In all three films, the CG was immediately noticeable, and in Battle of Gods ...

Re: Does Dragon Ball have the largest, least toxic, fandom in existence of fictional franchises?

I know what it means, I'm asking if others understand because bringing up disagreements instead of HOW they disagree makes it seem like disagreeing in and of itself is toxic. Don't get me started. I can't count the number of times I've seen, or been engaged in, a pretty civil and straightforward di...

Few days late on the reply. Apologies. :P The focus has always been on martial artists doing fantasy martial arts against other martial artists.

Re: DBZ is still DB

I don't know. I don't usually like aliens in my fantasy stories (even though DB already starts out mixed with ancient Chinese and futuristic). I suppose it makes the "Earth" for me less "magical" and smaller. Which is somewhat true when Z came out, Earth's world building became ...

Re: DBZ is still DB

Even with the natural trajectory, I doubt you would have seen the things that unfolded in the Z-era if Goku was still a kid. Like him getting blasted through the chest and dying, or characters losing limbs, etc. Also, I can't see a young Goku traveling to outer space and taking on the likes of Free...

What behavior do you mean by toxic? And what fanbase isn't divided about something and why should that matter? Disagreements are fine, encouraged even, it's the civility of the discussion that's the issue. You answered your own question. But, I don't think you can really compare the toxicity of hug...
