Re: Hiromi Tsuru, Bulma's voice actor, has passed away.

Gouri Daisuke didn't get anything when he died. I wouldn't hold out for any tributes to Tsuru Hiromi.

Re: Has Modern Dragon Ball made the Dragon Ball World too small?

Why is having a 'small world' a problem when Dragon Ball isn't about listing who won what war or when famine struck? The world is just a backdrop for the characters to exist in an interact with.

Recast.


Anyway, this is terrible news. I hope it wasn't depression.

Re: So at this point, who the hell is even left for Gohan to have an epic fight against?

Hopefully nobody so we can all forget about his ridiculous return to fighting and he can go back to just being a scholar for the rest of eternity.

Unfortunately, he'll probably get one last big moment against the Namekians. With nineteen fucking episodes left they can do just about anything.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 100

So you're expecting an animation downgrade later on? Could this mean we can expect a return of U6 tournament arc quality? Isn't the schedule supposed to get better as the show progresses though? All these questions.. Long running series go through phases. There is no set rule that says it will keep...

I thought he'd be one of the Toei staff that works on the anime at least, this just makes it even more completely random and stupid.


It makes perfect sense. Remember, the CD single for Limit Break x Survivor was just released.

I'd like to see him win the Tournament of Power and replace the Zen-Ou while also unleashing the Destruction Gods on the universes to cause humiliation and suffering.

Re: Super Episode 115 (12 November 2017)

I dont understand why Yashima did the storyboard for episode 115, add also Kitano animation, did Toei forget how much of a failure episode 33 was when both men worked together that time? And yes Yashima should never storyboard ever again, its not his strength. The director was the same one from epi...

Re: Super Episode 115 (12 November 2017)

Blue Kaiou-ken looks nice, but I sure hope it goes away forever after this arc. I want Gokuu to just focus on Mastery of Self-Movement from now on.

Also, it's hard to believe that we still have nineteen episodes of this fucking thing left. Grief.

Re: I think feminism is the reason for the overpowered female characters

Japan does have feminists in personalities like Kotani Mari , known for being a science fiction critic. Again, though, it's Toriyama (disconnected from the greater concerns of society), Morishita (a hack producer and company-man obsessed with his old ways of thinking) and Torishima (obsessed with hi...

Re: I think feminism is the reason for the overpowered female characters

I imagine Toriyama is not aware of what a feminist is and simply applied his usual reversing techniques to create his own parody of a magical girl character. Caulifla seems to mostly just be Toriyama's usual tough female, except a battle-loving Saiyan, while Kale appears to be more so a creation of ...

Things die. If comics or Dragon Ball die because they 'grew up' with their fans, so be it. No significant number of people will miss Dragon Ball once it dies.

Re: Should Vegetto Return?

Nah, fusions are boring. Kefla might wind up being the best fusion because of how in-sync Kale and Caulifla are, but the idea otherwise hinges on no tangible attachment to the fused character. I'd much rather see Gokuu and Vegeta just learn to fight together because then we could actually see two ch...

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

Happy, am I, to see the return of the Mastery of Self-Movement. I hope a good freelance animator is available to depict Mastery of Self-Movement Gokuu versus Kefla.

I am also happy to see Tomioka Atsuhiro returning. I really hope he winds up writing another major string of episodes soon.
