Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Does anyone know if some fans are translating the apparently bad fighterz manga? Cipher is doing full documentation and summaries for our in-progress wiki, which I intended to use in an eventual expansion for a complete (and long-overdue) "Video Games Manga" section in the website-proper'...

Re: Do you like Kikuchi Kai?

It's obviously not ideal, and I'd have preferred both more tracks be used and more time have been allotted to placement, but given the behind-the-scenes story, it's fine. It's certainly watchable, there are points where the introduction of later-era tracks livens up the Saiyan and Namek arcs (at the...

Re: Does Dragon Ball have the largest, least toxic, fandom in existence of fictional franchises?

I'd say Dragon Ball is confirmed to be a really pleasant fandom, especially compared to what it could be. I think you can think a handful of individuals for setting a really good precedent. Mike, Herms, and the rest of the Kanzenshuu staff, and the community Terez has built up with her policies on r...

Re: Babidi had the worst VA in the entire Japanese Run of DB/Z. Agree?

I could not disagree with this more. Bobbidi has one of the more memorable, and appropriately unnerving (in terms of delivery more than the voice itself) voices in the entire anime run. I'm disappointed we couldn't get the same performance back for Kai . Bin Shimada's take is fine, but it's a little...

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

Right but that picture is indeed Vegeta UI then??? like this game has a what if Vegeta form where he gets UI even though that has yet to happen in the anime, is that correct??? No, I'm pretty sure that picture is just SSJB Vegeta using a Super Attack called "Ultra Instinct Omen." This see...

...Great Saiyaman 3 is totally going to be Trunks Or Tapion. He's a Charisma, most likely not a Dragon Ball character. For anyone confused by this phrase, "charisma" is sometimes used as a word for celebrity in Japanese, much like "talent." "Charisma" has a few more ti...

So Vegeta UI is actually a thing now even though it's just part of the customization feature of the game???? does it even say that on the scans??? also i didn't hear anything about said feature on the latest 3DS game so i'm guessing doing something like giving a character a completely new form that...

Since people here are likely to care about the gameplay elements too, that UI Vegeta is just showing how you can use a secret technique equip in creation mode to create "dream combinations."

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Interesting, Cipher's little pamphlets for the movie said kid Broly was at 10,000, a mistake? I do know Ajay said his power skyrocketed in the incubation chamber when a ruckus outside was making him anxious so its entirely possible 920 is his birth BP and then it goes to 10,000 for the scene in-que...

Thats not Jiya Really? I thought Cipher said he was. I don't know what Jiya looks like so I assumed he just was. I don't believe that that's Jiya specifically but that's definitely a member of his race. Still a cool to see. :thumbup: Yeah, I was just joking because it's a clear visual homage. They ...

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

There are some V-Jump scans going around that seem to suggest that Vegeta attains Ultra Instinct Omen in SDBH. I will refrain from posting it until I learn for sure that the scans are real. Edit: Looks like it's some sort of character customization feature in World Mission, so this will most likely...

Re: Regarding Freeza (spoilers for the upcoming movie)

I have zero problem with the wish and am a bit surprised people expected Freeza to be anything but a largely neutral presence now. Once you fight alongside Goku, you are never really a villain again. That's the rule. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with this tamer, more flexible Freeza in...

Re: This series has held up so good to me.

I think Toriyama is weary over the bad he sees in the world, but still has a hopeful outlook. I get that he doesn't think people will change, but what I also get is the feeling that because there's enough good in the world, it makes the ride worth it. There has to be better descriptor than whimsica...

Re: This series has held up so good to me.

That's not the same story, that's not a story at all. One of the reasons DB will age well is because for years it didn't tell the same story. It changed things up time after time. It wasn't even afraid to get rid of its villains and move on. Not the same story repeatedly within a single work. The s...

Cipher nailed it describing Toriyama as "whimsical nihilism", and boy does it let the series do a lot of silly things without getting you thinking too much about it! :lol: I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed Battle of Gods, any misgiving I have with it ultimately give way to To...

Re: Name adaptations

Since Dragon Ball 's name puns pull from multiple languages--primarily Japanese and English (or at least English loan words in Japanese), but not exclusively--it's too much of a headache to design an entirely consistent system for which should be adapted and which should be kept as-is. So, for consi...

Freeza's also done Goku's favorite thing and gotten way stronger through hard work. Probably took some of the edge off.
