Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Well, now I've seen it in both Japanese and English. I was actually quite entertained. The animation was a sight to behold (though I do wish the camera didn't shake so much so I could fawn over the art). This is probably the first instance of a post-Dragon Ball work where I could remember the music,...

Re: Dragon Ball Super in Portugal

The manga sucks, Ribrianne's Portuguese voice is monotonous and devoid of life, this girl just cannot catch a break!

Re: Factors that make UK Broadcasters pass on Dragon Ball Super.

Do we know if Viceland's brief anime phase (Eureka Seven, Cowboy Bebop etc.) was popular? Viceland's anime block is still going strong, they've just stopped airing Eureka Seven at traditional before and after school times (7:00 am, 4:00pm) And it's been insanely popular. When Tokyo Ghoul was airing...

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

After all these months of waiting (with expectations pretty low), Toyotaro still manages to butcher Ribrianne, turning her from a chipper, gimmicky, love-fixated fighter into a spiteful, vain joke. What do you mean by this? It has been a while since I watched the anime, but I distinctly remember Ri...

That's already what she was.
Joke? Yes. Vain? Not nearly as much in the anime. Spiteful? Not in the anime at all.

Re: Factors that make UK Broadcasters pass on Dragon Ball Super.

I've been a longtime lurker on these boards, and I just thought I'd let you guys know that Viceland are thinking about airing an anime similar in tone to Eureka Seven in the Autumn. I've asked if it was Dragonball but haven't been given a reply yet. I DM'ed them on twitter if anyone else wants to a...

Re: So has Freeza become "The Joker" of the Dragonball franchise

Just reading that sentence made me wince. Prefacing this by saying that Freeza is potentially my favourite character, I sincerely hope this is not the case. I don't want Freeza to become an active part of Goku's life because I don't see further conflict between the two benefiting the overall narrati...

Re: Have the Japanese voice actors ever visited the UK?

I asked the organisers of Digi-Con Genesis (an upcoming mostly Dragon Ball-themed convention in Sheffield, which seems to have booked a good chunk of the primary FUNimation cast) if they were planning to have any of the Japanese cast, and they said no. I hope it wasn't because of perceived lack of i...

21st.
I'm curious to see how Golden Freeza will look. Toyo has never drew him in a manga.
Nice, thank you! I just want to see if Ribrianne will get up to anything...or potentially get wiped out.

Re: In defense of 18's hated line from Episode 131...

This is what it boils down to. If Frieza made a statement such as "You must be joking! You're wasting your wish on dead people!" no one would have a problem with it because it fits his character. A lot of people view 18 as one of the "good guys" who couldn't be so selfish or heartless even when the...

You are projecting your own morals into this. I'm not saying that they're wrong, but that's not how 18 thinks. Just because a character is not in synch with your point of view, it doesn't mean that it's not belivable that someone else can have a diffetent opinion This is what it boils down to. If F...

1. Well, I didn't say that you said that. I said that to show one of the reasons why she doesn't give a crap about some universes that don't actually make an impact on her life. 3. But your argument falls apart if you consider that she was just basically a teeneger version of her present self, as o...

1. The stakes were high, yes, but if all of those universes were never brought back, it's not like her life would be different. I could argue that the high stakes made her outlook change into an even more selfish one, since that's the human characteristic that comes out the most when one's life is ...

Just like everything it has to so with perspective. 18 couldn't care less about those other universes, they were the opposition between her, and her survival. Is it really that difficult to imagine that she would have no connection to people she just met 40 minutes ago in a survival battle? Just th...

As far as everyone in-universe were concerned, the eight universes taking part in the Tournament Of Power were expendable.

All I see is people mentioning her being selfish, sure. But how is that an issue when it's consistent with her character? You just hate the fact she is selfish, but that's not the show's fault. 18 has always been a selfish woman who doesn't give a fuck about anything. Where is the contradiction? It...
