Re: What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

Even in anime/manga, Fist of the North Star did a lot of that stuff before Dragonball. Dragon Ball hasn't done anything that other shonen predating it hasn't done before (though, I suppose Dragon Ball did change the whole "manly artwork" scene in favor of "cute/goofy artwork"). Most of the tropes t...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Bowlcut Gohan was just kind of generic. I prefer teen Gohan (actual teen not what Funimation thinks is a teen) from the Boo era or Saiyajin saga Gohan. Boo era Gohan is probably my second favorite version of the character and an upgrade from the Cell Games. He adopts a persona that isn't crying all...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

- Bowlcut Gohan is the best version of the character, in part because Namek is the best arc in Dragon Ball. He's in an extremely dire situation, but behaves more like a brave kid and a true hero than any other time after that. He does nothing against the Androids, then he trains to fight Cell and he...

Re: Vic Mignogna

This AnimeGate nonsense is getting blown out of proportion and just reinforces my disdain towards the anime community. I'm honestly just waiting for all the yaoi fan artists to bombard the AnimeGate hashtag with their fan art and literally ruin AnimeGate for those gatekeeping bigots at this point.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Is Vic Mignogna allegation even worst or similar to Michael Jackson 1993 trial and the 2005 trial. They're similar, but not quite. Mignogna will never in his lifetime ever dream of reaching the same fame as Michael Jackson did. The Michael Jackson case continues to this very day and age be the text...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Schemmel and Strait's dislike for Vic dates far back before the allegations. They even used to have a video series on Schemmel's YouTube channel that was basically him low-key shitting on Vic. I believe it was called "Kip Mangina." He deleted it some years ago, but I'm sure there are reuploads of it...

Re: Who are the best written couple in DB?

A character flaw is still a character flaw regardless if the story addresses it or not, because the author obviously intended his characters to have them. You failed to prove why this isn't the case. And Vegeta is arrogant in all of his fights (and general activities) regardless if the consequences...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I have to argue semantics because you have an lackluster understanding of what DEM is. If Super Saiyan hadn't been constantly talked about, then it would've been sudden if he transformed out of nowhere, but it wasn't. I wouldn't call "sup, i fear super saiyans/want to be a super saiyan" foreshadowi...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

That's not an issue. Of course it gets activated at the last second. It's dramatic tension, just like when someone defuses a bomb at the last second. That doesn't make it a deus ex machina. A DEM has either no set up or an insufficient set up, one that breaks the rules of the fictional world. And t...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I think the super saiyan transformation is a dumb ass pull, the only "foreshadowing" we had for it were the characters talking about the legend, but all it really meant was "it's a strong and evil saiyan", so it being a transformation just makes it feel like an asspull which doesn't make sense beca...

Re: Scariest character in Dragonball?

Imperfect Cell! He was a fantastic villain and one for the few characters who gave me the creeps. He felt like something straight out of a horror sci-fi movie like Ridley Scott's Alien with his "you can't see him, but you know he's there" nature and his shtick of sucking the life force out of people...

Re: Who are the best written couple in DB?

I made a common sense assumption based on your opinions about these relationships. Hardly an ad hominem since I made no value judgements about you. Alright, fair enough. You didn't address my rebuttals to your complaints about Bulma. I didn't address anything, because I already said what I had to s...

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

Stop bringing in TFS to the conversation - it's a parody show. There's no acting required. Even if it did, MasakoX does not capture Goku's spirit. He's not required to because he's not voicing Goku. It's a parody Goku. Do you think Power Rangers has good acting? Because that's about the level of ac...

Re: Which of FUNimation's Name Changes Bother You the Most?

"Bulla", "Hercule", "Krillin", "Tien Shinhan", "Vegito", "Frieza".

I also cannot stand "Destructo Disc", "Spirit Bomb", "Tri Beam", and especially "Special Beam Cannon". What kind of stupid name is that? I liked the German "Höllenspiral" (Spiral of Hell) much better.

Re: Why hire an old lady when you can get a dude?

What does a muscular man sound like? Seems to me that strong men are defined by their strength, not by their voice. I do not mind Masako Nozawa's Goku. It's a good representation of his character. Goku is a pure-hearted manchild who talks like a backwater hick, he was never supposed to be a manly ma...

Re: Masako Nozawa Interview - ComicBook.com

Goku's personality is somewhere between Toriyama's and Nozawa's interpretation. He isn't exactly your typical hero in the sense that he has a selfless motivation to save everyone, his primary goal is to fight strong guys and get stronger in the progress. But on the other hand, he also has a human pe...

Re: Who are the best written couple in DB?

Gohan and Videl are the only good couple in Dragon Ball. Everything else are kinda shitty, and served virtually no purpose other than Toriyama wanting to pair X and Y for his own amusement or just there for the sake of plot convenience. Vegeta and Bulma are terrible (as well are Yamcha and Bulma), t...

You know what I hate about Android arc?
