Re: Does the fact the DBS anime is not returning make you loose intrest in DB?

It depends what you mean by 'loose interest'. If you mean partake in discourse, I'm actually more inclined to discuss Dragon Ball when new content isn't coming out. It means the boards are less busy which normally makes for more substantive discussion (as the majority of posters aren't reacting to s...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

Guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one, I think TFS absolutely could win in court over this, but I understand them not wanting to hedge their bets on it. Yeah but try to take in the information being given to you, instead of just 'agreeing to disagree'. The implication here is that you h...

Re: Is Supreme Kai Shin the worst character in the franchise?

"Supreme Kai - Dragon Ball's WORST CHARACTER!" Youtube was a fucking mistake. I think I posted a while ago about how people who partake in battle power discussions aren't toxic. I still stand by that, to a degree. What I do think is toxic to the discourse of this series is this measuring stick menta...

Re: Can't get into Kai

I do think it's worse in some ways, the censorship, distracting new animation and that horrible green tint in the Buu arc both come to mind. You're misunderstanding what they're saying. Censorship, New animation, and green tint have nothing to do with the dub's quality, which is what Matches Malone...

I don't think he planned on it from the start of the saga, but I think he made up his mind that he would be Gero once he actually designed and debuted #19 and 20. Why else have him be an old geezer?
Could've made him in his own image. Kami complex?

Re: Why did Android 20 deny being Dr Gero?

Who knows, maybe Toriyama wasn't intending on it. Maybe Gero was a totally different character that we'd meet later, and the whole 20 = Gero thing was introduced as a means of transitioning to the arc's reboot.

Re: Was the original premise of the Android arc better?

Think about it. If Toriyama went with 19 and 20, then the plot is a mysterious teenager shows, warns Goku, Goku trains, and eventually defeats them. It's a plot, but a VERY straightforward one. Trunks doesn't really serve much purpose. There are very few reversals or plot twists. At most, I see tha...

Re: Was the original premise of the Android arc better?

One thing I really dug about at least the early Cyborg arc is dealing with an enemy that doesn't have ki. It's really interesting because a significant part of Goku's training with Mr. Popo was learning how to sense ki. They had gotten so used to sensing ki they weren't as practiced in using their ...

Re: Was the original premise of the Android arc better?

I guess I'm in the minority here, I want to see what Toriyama would've done with #19/#20. They look unnerving enough and their murderous introduction was downright creepy, I'd like to have seen where Toriyama could take that. Also, there's of course the energy draining which could've seen some great...

Re: Least favourite performances in your dub

Kirby Morrow as Gokuu. Fine voice actor, I've enjoyed him in other roles, but he was so miscast. He has serious 'dude' energy that doesn't fit the character at all. For what it's worth he did the best with what he had, he was likely told to play a generic super hero and his voice talents alone carry...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

Though I can see what KBABZ is trying to say, 'destructive' is a really poor choice of wording for this topic. It implies it's doing damage to the show, like, financially? Like this will destroy/end the series. Probly best to use another term here. DBZA did actually start going for a more serious to...

Re: Other series like DBZ Kai?

I can't think of anything official but Kai inspired fans to start their own cut of One Piece called One Pace, and I think there's one for Naruto as well. This is actually a pretty cool thing to have come from Kai. I'd never seen/read Naruto before, but the fan project 'Naruto Kai' made taking the p...

These tracks don't really land for me, but the concept is pretty creative, and it's impressive he's covered so much ground (seeing stuff like Vegeta's Final Bout theme is impressive, especially how it works in the Hells Bells instruments).

Re: My biggest issue with Super

The current manga arc revealed that the god powers of the absorbed fat Kaioshin were transfered to evil Buu after he split into two. Evil Buu was reincarnated into Uub, that could be a way of making Uub stronger This kind of shit sounds so cool, but I know that they'll do absolutely nothing with it.
