Re: Kid Trunks' first English dub appearance

I'll have to remember to tell my friend they had/have an 'unrealistic' voice next time I see him, cause he totally sounded like funi's kid trunks when we were in primary school XD But yeah, trunks certainly sounds different in that first episode. It seems as though his personality was different at t...

Re: Why didn't the Kaioshins use the Mafooba on Majin Boo?

Well why didn't Goku use Akkuman's devil beam? Would have helped quite a lot against many of the villians he faced ;)

Re: Why the Black Star Dragon Ball hunt didn't work?

what sucks is how it didn't even have any references to frieza's empire. Would have tied it together so much better if some of those random groups were swapped to be spliter factions of the world trade staking their claim over small parts of the galaxy, and otherwise making more references to the wo...

Re: DragonballOnline Revelation

I don't believe it would have to do with legality Devil's Corpse, both code and art assets are both just as 'illegal' to use since they don't own the intellectual property rights to them. It's more likely that the code just doesn't exist on the client*. The client sends info, the server processes it...

I thought it was great, still do. How they ended it though was pretty terrible/a total asspull.

Re: Why is King Cold so huge?

While saying 'he is only second form but was still said to be just as strong as true form Freeza' does well to play up an otherwise underrated character[who I personally quite liked], I'm kinda leading more towards it not being the case. Chapter: 330 (DBZ 136), P2.3-4 Gohan: “Ku-Kuririn-san, did yo...

Re: Do Ki blasts burn through gloves?

Because it doesn't come out from their skin, they just form it infront of their palms by concentrating the energy into a 'point' in space(For example watch when gohan is teaching videl how to use ki.), technically they could probably do blasts without any hand motion at all(indeed, some characters d...

Re: Why is King Cold so huge?

Cooler's design, which also looks like second form frieza minus the horns, tends to indicate that despite his similarity to second form frieza, Kold was probably in his 'true' form rather than a suppressed form(frieza's second form may just have been 'modelled' after his father... or you could go fo...

Re: Are there levels to ssj2 and ssj3?

Wasn't super saiyan 3 mentioned somewhere as actually being like ussj (as in, not a 'proper' form).

Re: Does Piccolo Have god Ki

No Piccolo isn't the kind of sissy who'd quit like a bitch just because his opponent was stronger than him. He said in his mind "Who is this man?" and the Kaioshin said he'd find out aloud and Piccolo realised he was using telepathy. He forfeited then told Goku that he was different order of being ...

You seem to be really touchy about this, and it seems like you believe I'm disgusted by the idea that he would have a transgender character. I made no comment about transgenders being or not being gay. That wasn't my issue. I was merely disagreeing that I don't think it's at all a "theme" (you use ...

http://i.imgur.com/Q4mT52V.jpg http://i.imgur.com/U32TANL.png It's pretty obvious when Toriyama makes a stereotypically gay character. Freeza isn't an example of this.

Re: Freeza and his men all have stereotypically "gay" traits

I thought it was someone obvious that was their theme. What I find strange is how many feel the need to vehemently deny it, as if they somehow find it insulting to imply such a theme is present, or as if because frieza and his two goons don't wrap their legs up around our heroes faces and demand man...

That reminds me of the other thing I thought of with the cooler movie, which was that maybe it was set in future trunk's timeline. ;) That infographic on the first page was pretty neat, pretty much exactly the sort of thing I was going for with this thread.

... what would the divergence event(s) be? For example it occurs to me that that the Cooler movie could well be a 'what if the spirit bomb really had worked on frieza'. That then means no goku super saiyan, no goku out in space,no frieza surviving, and even potentially reason for goku to mistake coo...

Not sure if this belongs here or in the In-universe section, but I've had this thought a while ago, and recently was reminded of it: There are some definite similarities between the plot/story surrounding Dr Gero, and that of the earlier movie villain Dr Wheelo. Both are androids, who had their brai...
