Re: How far away are we from a "proper Hollywood treatment"?

Super far away. Adapting DB to live action properly is going to take extremely careful casting, directing, and a giant CGI budget. With DB Evolution being a box office and commercial failure, no studio is ever going to want to take a risk on this property.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Do we have any word on what Dyspo is yet? Is he part of the same race as Beerus/Champa? Maybe another relative?

Re: Hypothetical Matchups We Never Saw

Doctor. wrote:We also never saw a Goku vs Gohan before Super, at which point Goku was already so ridiculously above his son that it wasn't an even match.

Buu Saga Goku vs. Buu Saga Gohan would be a pretty close matchup.

Re: People are cutting Toei too much slack for making Trunks and Goten look and act like 6 yr olds when they're 14 yrs o

If you want to be "infuriated" about Goten and Trunks in Super, their height should be the least of your problems. Last arc they tried to ship 14 year old Trunks with a 50 year old woman.

Maybe we'll get a timeskip soon?

Re: Worst post-revival retcon?

Yes, because there is nothing left to undermine. If you are going to tell me that Freeza blowing up planet namek because he was told to, is somehow worse than him being outclassed by cyborgs built on a planet with far less advanced technology than we have different views on what made him great in t...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

So Goku uses Super Saiyan Blue against the Trio De Dangers who he's individually much stronger than as a Super Saiyan.... But then uses Super Saiyan God against Dyspo, a guy who can give Hit a lot of trouble... Eh? Nah I'm still hyped though. Perhaps SSG is actually stronger than SSB? And Blue is i...

Re: Am I the only one who thinks the Yamcha meme is in poor taste?

Wouldn't say it's in poor taste because it's less about the death itself and more about how Yamcha just can't catch a break.

Re: Worst post-revival retcon?

Potara fusion being timed instead of permanent. It cheapens Vegito and it brings into question why the protagonists don't just use the potara earrings at literally every opportunity from that point on. Even if not Goku or Vegeta, characters like Piccolo or Gohan. It also makes the fusion dance point...

Re: The stakes couldn't be higher yet there is no tension at all

I think it's odd that the characters don't seem to realize how serious this tournament is. When 17 blasted those U2 girls both Goku and Toppo rallied to let them finish transforming. Why let easy pickings become tanks? Just chuck them off the stage before they even transform. Did Cell teach you noth...

Re: Sony To Acquire Majority Stake in Funimation

Dr. Gero earns his spot by both being a murderer and creating the ...

Re: LGBT in DragonBall

Considering just how many characters are in Dragon Ball, and how even more are introduced every arc, it would be weird if one of them wasn't LGBT.

That said, considering how oddly Dragon Ball treats its characters that are wives, not sure if having a gay character would be done tastefully.

Re: Frieza and Frost... What will be their plan?

Likely the same offer Freeza gave Sidra. If U6 wins Frost hijacks the wish to revive/transport Freeza to U6, and vice versa in the scenario U7 wins. Freeza, being Freeza, probably wouldn't fulfill his end of the bargain since I doubt he'd want to share a universe with someone so similar, unless he m...

Those people can stay angry. Chances are it will be that sort of spirit of competition that will save the universes rather than obsessing over your own survival. This! Zeno was totally into Toppo's super hero routine and I doubt it's a councidence that Goku and Khai both had the idea to approach Ze...

Funi's already shown with the Levels vs. the season Blurays that they care more about marketability and profit than attention to detail. Sorry. What does this mean?

Re: Are the Dub Changes in Kai TFC Dub an Issue?

I think generally the liberties they take are fine but ones like the "tough boy" line I take issue with because they affect characterization. That dub line takes away the ambiguity present in the original version and creates a facet of Vegeta that Toriyama and the original writers maybe ne...

Re: What would you say the odds of this game dethroning Budokai 3 will be?

Budokai 3 has nostalgia behind it, but Fighterz might have EVO.

My guess is Fighterz will be more popular with gamers and newer DB fans but Budokai 3 will generally still hold up for people who grew up playing it.

If Funimation put some work into EQing, some light noise reduction, and some professional work on the fansub audio for the missing sections, the result could end up rather incredible(Particularly if they encode it lossless).
