Re: Should TFS be blamed for the treatment of Yamcha?

You may not be able to tell, but the problem's been decisively and definitively dealt with. Let's get back on topic and keep things chill.

Re: When it comes to JPN Names/Terms what/how do you decide what to keep as is or translate/adapt?

I usually end up with a common-sense mix of official English terms that are well-translated, and Japanese terms that either aren't officially well-translated or just too mouthy or awkward when they are. For example, "Special Beam Cannon," is only halfway-accurate at best and sound clumsy t...

SaiyanGod117, there's no need to make demands of people for stuff like this. Nobody has to prove anything to anyone else here.

Re: Babidi's assessment of the base saiyans' "energy"

I'm more or less in the same boat as dbgtFO on this particular topic... it seems like the whole point of that scene was "Bobbidi and Dabra are magic, so they can detect the heroes even when they're suppressing their power." That also apparently included divining which of the heroes had the...

Re: Is Eastern Supreme Kai equal to Full Power Super Saiyan Goku from the Cell Games?

Maybe not exactly equal, but that's the most likely range for Kaioshin's power. We're already told that he's WAAAAAY stronger than Freeza and at least moderately stronger than Piccolo. He seems to be weaker than Super Saiyan Goku since he backed down during their stand-off, but Goku has obviously im...

Re: What's your opinion on Toyotaro?

There is so much bias in your posts it's so hard to take them seriously. First and foremost you keep bringing up this "homage" argument in almost every post. You might want to check the anime on that one. Whereas the anime gives you in your face, shot for shot fanservice (which is laughab...

Ummmm, okay. Thanks for your candid response, haha. But seriously, just humor me, between SSBerserker Controlled and SSGreen which would you pick? I guess "Berserk(er)" is better. I'm getting pretty tired of Super's color-based naming schemes for "new" forms, and it should at le...

Re: The True Saiyan Form.

"Super Saiyan Ripoff" rings a fitting bell for me.

Honestly I care very little for this or just about any other in-universe thing Super's done lately. I just thought the "suppressed emotions exploding" idea was worth tossing into the ring.

Re: The True Saiyan Form.

Maybe but wouldn't that make Gohan a prime candidate for this form too instead of going SSJ2? I guess Gohan's different since he was better trained to use Super Saiyan properly from the start, unlike Broli or Kale. Plus, as meek and generally nice as he is, he was never outright emotionally repress...

Re: When you were a kid did you think Freeza was a woman?

Can't say I ever did. It was the Majin Boo arc in English that got me hooked on "DBZ" as a teenager, and it didn't take long after that for me to dive headfirst onto the internet on a stupendous pilgrimage for more Dragon Ball knowledge. That involved watching a lot of old video clips of s...

Re: Why doesn't Goku transform into the God versions of SS2 and SS3?

I'd presume it's because that Super Saiyan Blue is really just using Super Saiyan as a container or conduit for his reserve of special new god-power, and using Super Saiyan 2 or 3 to channel it instead wouldn't actually make him any stronger.

Re: The True Saiyan Form.

I wonder if this sort of form happens partly as a result of emotional suppression. Strong emotions are what trigger the Super Saiyan transformation in the first place (putting aside the B.S. about "back tingles") , so it'd make sense if the form was even more explosively potent and brutal ...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Gap between SSJ Goku, SSJ Gohan and Perfect Cell (Full Power)? Gohan's not only stronger than Goku, but also above Cell's restrained power, though it's hard to tell since he hardly did anything to fight back before going SS2. Cell's full power is quite a bit stronger than either of them, though. SS...

There is no official definition for Dragon Ball canon, and even trying to define it unofficially as "anything with direct contribution from Toriyama" doesn't work either. Toriyama has personally designed, outlined, or signed off on a LOT of stuff, and very little of it can inherently work ...

How big you guys have the gaps between Shin Buu, SSJ3 Gotenks, Chou Gohan and Buutenks? Not all that large. The relatively small differences between Boo, Gotenks, and Gohan add up to be a big one between Boo and Gohan and a moderate one between Gohan and Gotenks-Boo. Evil Boo: 100 (+Gotenks: 220) S...
