Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 4/16/18!)

I think this section of the arc is somewhat underrated, as you noted the characters have good interactions and the battles with 19 and 20 have good choreography on top of being solved without purely application of brute force. 19 and 20 aren't a million time stronger than Freeza, because Gero never ...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

How many Dragon Ball manga chapters are equivalent to 1 Super manga chapter? The latter seem to be x2-3 the page length.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I haven't seen much of anything of the last two arcs, so as an experiment I'm just going to read the manga and see what conclusions I come to just from that, with nothing else influencing me, consciously or otherwise.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

However, I also find it very absurd that in a few hours, Gohan base can jump to a level far above Gotenks SSJ3, but before it was much weaker. My problem with the whole notion, or at least its relation to Gotenks in particular, is that it's entirely predicated on a scene from a small arc that Toriy...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

It's funny. People would probably have a similarly hard time (and similarly insane theories about how everyone got a million times stronger in days) deciphering the power hierarchy of Dragon Ball Z if all they had to go on was the anime, and not the associated manga volumes. We'd probably get people...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

I know it's probably a waste to even ask, but how do people still solidly believe that base Goku/Vegeta is stronger than (Buu-era) SS3 Gotenks? Shouldn't the Ultimate Gohan and fat Buu stuff have debunked that completely or do people actually believe that Gohan got a thousand times stronger in like ...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Wanna know my secret? I don't assume power levels are messed up based on a few inconsistencies. It's far from "a few inconsistencies", it's basically on the level where you can't use someone's performance to actually gauge their strength and the entire plot is invalidated. Like 17 going f...

Re: Was Dragon Ball really completely unknown in America in the late 1980's?

A Dragon Ball animated movie received a respectable theatrical release in the US where it was treated like an actual film, and was the first Japanese movie to be shown in IMAX 3D. That has to count for something.

Ce''s first form is a fantastic design, easily his best, and one of my favorites from Toriyama period.

Re: Theory: Why Toriyama stops using certain characters as fighters.

The whole point of the 23rd Budokai was to rub in that Tenshinhan and Piccolo are idiots that waste their time on flashy useless bullshit techniques. Goku almost literally tells them this several times: -After Tenshinhan divides his power by creating duplicates. -After Piccolo nails himself with his...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/25/17!)

Toriyama's reaction to Furuya asking why Yamcha got screwed over (which was basically "because he sucks lol" ) is one of the many reasons why I can never not like the guy.

Re: Comic Fans: How does Dragon Ball compare to your favorite American comics?

My familiarity with comics is mostly limited to adaptations and reading up on choice issues to get an idea of who a character actually is if I don't already know and hear they're going to be featured in a movie/game/show (at least in one case, Brainiac, this just confused me more).

Re: Vegeta = General Zod

I can't believe I missed this the first time, but it's bothering me so much I need to bring it up: Vegeta calling Goku "Kakarot" is akin to Zod calling Superman "Kal-El"; both are disregarding Superman/Goku's human identity and implying they know their true selves

Some thoughts on the BP system and what it represents based on the manga evidence. Warning: wall of text. As we all know from high school physics, power = energy/time. Since battle power readings explicitly measure power output, for a second let's take battle power to be a measure of energy/seco...
