Re: Who are your least favorite characters of the entire franchise?

Can't say
Any Dragon
Ball characters
Bother me that much.
After all, most highlighted ones are amusing in at least some way.

The worst thing they could do is be boring.

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Time to make my once annual pilgrimage into this thread. For what it's worth, I did not read the chapter thinking Freeza was substantially weaker than his 「F」 self. Mainly because it didn't occur to me to consider he'd be any different. It still plays fine, if maybe slightly liberal with Caulifla ge...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Super fun chapter. I'm thoroughly enjoying the arc so far, and this was one of the highlights. I can jive with Kale being strong enough to give non-serious Freeza and Goku trouble, if that's the route they take. Her entire section of the chapter is quite well-handled, and it's an exciting spot to le...

Re: Dragon Ball Timelines Revisited

This was perhaps a bit verbose, and I wish the video-game information had been left out for clarity, but -- It's all correct! Paradoxes are identified correctly, as are the origins for each timeline split. I can sign off on this breakdown. And yes, we end up with seven timelines total: six related t...

Because people with expertise had to address backlash against tracing accusations, and said backlash must have come from accusati...

Re: What’s the general consensus on James Marsters’ Zamasu?

I've only seen a few clips, but the difference is immediate and stark. It is indeed like an actor from a higher-tier of production accidentally walked into a room full of everyone stuck in their ingrained exaggerated anime-dub deliveries. One of the few times I've ever checked in on the FUNimation d...

Re: What’s everyone’s opinion on how the manga has so far handled the Universe Survival arc compared to the anime?

I understand its not the point of the arc, but what is the reason for introducing more than 80 characters (including the GoDs, etc. of each universe) for? To present an obstacle for the protagonists, as I said. The minor fighters aren't needed for characterization purposes, they're needed to contri...

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

I'm 50/50 on it. Of all of Dragon Ball 's forays with raunchy humor, Bulma trading on her sexuality bothers me the least. She's usually offering something pretty tame, it fits her personality, and she's a pretty multi-faceted character outside of it. It's also never used to titillate the actual audi...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Count one more in for the sentiments above: While Toyotaro's paneling is weak compared to Toriyama's, it's hardly a knock comparing him to an absolute master of the craft. I do find his art style pleasing, and of the high-profile Dragon Ball doujinshi authors, with the possible exception of the much...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Threaa

I know I’m a little late to comment on chapter 35, but I have to say, I don’t think the way the tournament has been progressing in the manga so far is really any better than it how it went in the anime around this point. For all the complaints about how U7 and U6 hogged up most of the eliminations,...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Hell, even that entire idea doesn't make any sense, because by the time we're introduced to Zamasu, his base form is already capable of owning SS2 Trunks easily, which really shouldn't happen if Zenkai's don't work on Goku and Vegeta at all. The manga went out of its way to explain that Black's pow...

Re: Why hasn't Toriyama paid his taxes yet?

Anyone who knows how society works knows that unless the wealthy carry the tax burden the working class will suffer and society eill collapse. That's a somewhat perverse view of how a society should function. It's not up to a selected few to pay taxes for everyone. If taxes are to exist (and they d...

Re: Is Goku a hero in Super?

He's the same Toriyama protagonist we have in almost all his stories: a largely selfish person who, though their own drive and a basically good-natured outlook toward the world, manages to draw others toward them and provide momentum for some measure of good. It's the same thing every time (not that...

Re: How do you think the first two arcs of Super would have been received without the movies?

It’s impossible to answer this thoughtfully without acknowledging that, without the movies, there’s no way those episodes would have come out the way they did, or within the timeframe they did. You’re asking us to imagine the reception for a very poor batch of episodes while removing the key factor ...

Yeah I shared a similar idea in a discord chat a while ago.

Jiren tanking his assassination attempt could lead to Jiren to start taking the t...
