Re: My biggest issue with Super

Dude....I downloaded the entire series....and deleted them...outta sheer boredom...only bleach has ever made me do that... I don't wish to bash the series, cuz it's been done multiple time before. I simply feel right from plot to character designs (beerus, jiren, Zeno) to single dimensional one-note...

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 2 - DB episodes 6-10

Couldn't wait till you get to Ep 13-14 Those are my absolute favs anyday. I kinda missed Chinese-myth, traditional anime vibe which DragonBall carried with it. It's classic 80's anime that's so entertaining. And DBS/Heroes today is clinging to "super-power" cliche troope alone I remember how I used ...

Re: Do You Consider Path to Power more of a GT movie than DB?

ITOEI's much maligned GT version of much beloved Akira Toriyama's DB storyline

Plus they butchered the story of an otherwise peak storyline of DB. GT for ya🤣🤣🤣

Re: King Piccolo and Dr. Gero both got their revenge

Maybe there was a philosophical bent to Gero's making of Cell as well. As a scientist/biologist, he likely held some strong opinions about the nature of life, its replicativeness and capacity for developing into a biologically "transcended" state. All of his other creations were either cybernetic w...

Re: King Piccilo and Dr. Gero both got their revenge

Dare say only Dr. Gero's long-term & miraculously lucky chain-of-events led him to acheive ultimate revenge on Goku. Dude made sense of why you should have not 1, not 2, but multiple backup plans to carry your mission forward. Doesn't matter if it takes years to theorize, conceive, complete or exper...

Re: It's actually amazing that DBZ was successful on Japanese TV

Dude, the scenario is like this. When you have an entire nation embracing ur protagonist & his show (Goku & DBZ in this case), it's only natural for them to wait weeks, if not months for their fav show to air & grace their TV's Anime fillers aside, you know DragonBall manga was huge hit in Japan.

Re: Goku Went Through A LOT of Character Development in the Cell Arc.

One word: Respect Just loved the way how you've managed to describe even minute nuances from Goku (such as looking outside the window in the Manga, or looking at his friends thinking they might take care of Earth even after his passing).... It's even more heart-breaking to think how many years (20 y...

Re: Most well developed characters in the franchise?

Vegeta for the protagonists, Zamasu for the villains. That's still a development arc, a negative development to be exact. People like Vegeta and Piccolo are able to become better people, whereas Zamasu just cannot rise beyond his own twisted ideals and descends further and further into madness. Her...

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

In fact, you don't even need high-caliber writing, plot or music or even bombastic action scenes. When a filler episode from DB & DBZ made in 1986/1992 could overshadow your 2018-2019 "main event storyline/fights"😂😂😂 clearly that has never happened Each person have their own perspectives. And in my...

Unless 2 things occur 1. TOEI staffs are undercover user members of this Kanzenshuu forum & did come across this topics & eventually learn to correct their mistakes 2.

Take a look at Tien from 22nd TB~King...

It's technically a spin-off of Star Wars, CA: The Winter Soldier, John Wick 3: Parabellum, Pursuit of Happiness, Titanic, Alien vs Predator and a handful of other films Dude, Dr. Slump was gag series. DB was shounen. That alone makes both shows distinctively different. And I'mma gonna pretend ur obl...

Re: Personal Issues With Dragon Ball GT

My feelings towards GT has changed over the years.

Re: It's such a shame how Uub was handled, he could have been the first strong black DB hero

Uub is not Black and as a black man myself I never liked the charcter at all. I always thought in the back of my head Buu's reincarnation should have been Goku's kid rather it be a son or a daughter. That way it would truly be his responsibility to deal with Buu. Buu's reincarnation could have also...

Re: Personal Issues With Dragon Ball GT

I liked the first part of GT, the ascension to Super Saiyan 4 and stuff like that but I didn't like the Shadow Dragon Saga simply due to the fact that it portrayed the use of the Dragon Balls to undo the damage caused by alien invasions as being selfish........... Which it wasn't. The Goku Black Sa...

Re: It's such a shame how Uub was handled, he could have been the first strong black DB hero

Uub isn't black. He's indian/middle eastern like Nam Exactly. Was abt to point it out. Btw, isn't it great to simply fantasize how great Uub could be rather than hoping for Super or lamenting over GT's messed up interpretation Uub seems pretty much a cross between Kid Goku & Namu. And his character...
