Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

Wow, those later Maeda Minoru character models got bad fast. It's no wonder he left the series. Gokuu's face looks all kinds of weird and his arms and torso look they would be hard to bend in animation.

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

My big fear is that the fight is going to suck, which I always sense happens with this sort of event. :( Even though Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan vs Super Saiyan 4 is a big deal, it is not the main event, it is not the pinnacle of everything. Heroes is not building up stuff to that moment. In othe...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

That Majin Buu arc Piccolo looks terribly stiff, yowza. You can really see where that expressionless problem began to creep in with Yamamuro's drawings, even as early that back then. His age might've started being a factor but I also have to wonder if working on the films might've hurt him, too. Dra...

Re: Dragon Ball Movie 20 - Animation Hub

Osama reminded me that Yamamoto Takumi hasn't been in any credits for a while. He wasn't even on Watanabe Koudai's incredibly storyboarded and animated Hugtto! PreCure Episode #15. I wonder if Yamamoto is an animation supervisor for this movie?

Re: Who exceeded your expectations in the Tournament of Power?

I'm very happy that the Muten Roushi got a lot of cool moments. It was a real curve ball, even after his role in the Golden Freeza arc. I wish Tenshinhan would go away so that there would be some actual anticipation for him to get cool moments. Toriyama and the series directors don't seem to know wh...

With this new reference, how do people believe the new designs stack up with the others from previous era's? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DdbYcRwU8AAmT0X.jpg Shintani's design beats the hell out of the last four character models that Yamamuro has drawn.

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

If this is a series or even just a special I hope that Tomioka Atsuhiro is the series kousei. His work on Dragon Ball Super was great and if this series will be about Beet playing a game then he'll definitely be a great fit!

Re: Dragon Ball Movie 20 - Animation Hub

I feel the proportions in the new art fix every problem I had with the initial key art. https://i.imgur.com/ORmrFF7.jpg The pants aren't overly baggy, and the legs are a bit shorter in length, and the face isn't too small compared to the rest of his head. Plus, the facial features are placed perfec...

Re: 2018 Dragon Ball Heroes Promotional Anime Announced

Are we even sure this is going to be a series and not just a special of sorts? Seems more likely to me to just be a special, unless Kitarou winds up taking three months off for some odd reason. I wonder if Yamamuro will storyboard, direct and be the animation supervisor again since he doesn't reall...

Re: How would you feel if Toriyama killed your favorite character permanently?

My favorite is Son Gokuu, so I would not be entirely pleased unless Toriyama really felt interested in the work he was creating. Assuming he will never get rid of Gokuu, though, my second favorite would be Vegeta! No more Vegeta would be really disappointing because I really like the dynamic Toriyam...

Yeah, I'm no fan of telling artistic creators to go home and reduce their ability to create satisfactory work. Delays broadcasts, that's the real issue.

Re: How would you change your least favourite saga?

Bah, screw it. I like the story of Dragon Ball Super but if we're going to start getting crazy I'd make these changes . With regards to the Cell stuff, I always go back and forth when it comes to the Cell Games. I'm not happy with Gohan's arc throughout the Artificial Humans arc as a whole, so I thi...

Re: Staging DBS as a midquel was a big mistake

I think the real mistake is placing too much stock in the idea of consequence being the main form of entertainment for Dragon Ball Super. Ultimately, even the original comic was rarely heavy in favor of consequence, so in that respect Dragon Ball Super feels very much like Dragon Ball.
