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). But even with tha...

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

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

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...

They'll recast her and proceed as normal without acknowledging that anything changed.

Re: Video Game Sales Discussion Thread

Though I don't see it as official I thought this was worth repeating here. Vgchartz has Xenoverse 2 as selling 452,000 Week 1 in the West. http://www.vgchartz.com/article/266599/dragon-ball-xenoverse-2-sells-an-estimated-452k-units-first-week-in-the-west-at-retail/ 342,000 on PS4 and 109,000 on Xbo...

So he was searching hentai for them? http://www.dbzeta.net/images/smilies/icon_wat.png There were also teenagers in the compound, probably using his computer.

Re: DB - A Superhero Story?

Someone pointed to Logan and I do think he falls into the category of a reluctant hero. He still joined the X-Men for years. He doesn't actively let threats arise in order to get a better fight. In fact, he hates fighting and killing. Goku and co. love fighting. Logan doesn't hate fighting per se, ...

Re: DB - A Superhero Story?

Is Luke Cage a superhero? Most people (who know who he is) would say yes, in all likelihood. Yet in the comics he's mostly a mercenary ("Hero for Hire," though he does have scruples) while in his own TV series he just wants to be left alone and only fights the villains when he or his frien...

Re: DB - A Superhero Story?

Technically yes, since a superhero is just a benevolent character with superhuman powers or otherwise extraordinary abilities who fights supervillains. They don't actually have to be proactive to be a superhero (and the DB characters are actually usually proactive, just not in the way we usually thi...

Re: Grey Boo

His power is greater than Good Buu's but weaker than Fat's. I prefer to think that he retained approximately 70% of the power. I do grant that Good Buu putting up any kind of fight against Kid Buu does put somewhat of a damper on this notion when Evil Buu was absolutely devastating Good. In relatio...

Re: If death was permanent

If the dragon balls couldn't revive people, which arcs would feel appropriate to kill off some characters? Vegeta in the Freeza arc, definitely, but given the part he plays later I don't know if Toriyama would go throw with it. Better examples would be Yamcha, Tenshinhan, and Chaozu in the Saiyan a...

Here's mine: Everyone not Godku, Rageta (Raging SSJ2 Vegeta), and Bulma vs. Beerus Vegeta vs. True Form Freeza Krillin vs. Perfect Cell Roshi defeats Yamcha at the 21st Budokai by waving a hand in his general direction and letting...

Re: How do you feel about the Viz translation?

Over all I like Viz's translation, however the only thing that bugs me is they refer to Buu as Djinn instead of Majin. Buu is a Djinn though. He wears stylistically Arab clothing, is found sealed in a container, is extremely long-lived, has unique magic abilities such as transmutation and shapeshif...

Daizenshuu 7 says he's "somewhat" weaker than Freeza, so I guess just go with that.
