Re: Why wasn’t there a proper theatrical Dragon Ball film back in the day?

Perhaps theatrical release was not needed. DragonBall was 🔥 with manga sales, anime series, merchandise, toys, games etc. So I assume TOEI must've felt there isn't a necessity to push or promote an already popular series with theatrical releases. Besides, they're extended side-stories or counterpart...

Re: Tenshinhan's lifespan

This reminds me of King Piccolo saying using his full power would shorten his life. This concept is pretty much never brought up again, although it could be King Piccolo's health OCD, like the moment Goku made his thumb bleed by biting it, followed by Piccolo freaking out and drinking it to avoid a...

Re: Tenshinhan's lifespan

Tien's vitality depletes each time he uses KiKoHo. It's an amped finisher which surpasses destructive capabilities of the likes of even Kamehameha. Dude's human after all. Imagine Kid Goku @ 21st TB or 23rd TB shooting KKH multiple times while it draining his life energy...and basically his life for...

Re: Do you think the Boo saga was the most brutal in the series ?

Tonally, the Buu Saga was kind of a mess. It arguably was the most brutal and bleak point in the series, but Toriyama made sure to sprinkle loads of gags and silly aspects to lighten it up. As beautiful as Vegeta's sacrifice is, it has to be overlooked that the immediate reason for sacrificing hims...

Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

Hello, friends. Simple question this time; what would Toei have done with GT if it hadn't been just 64 episodes? Probably been discussed a billion times before, and TBH, I'm kinda reaching here to see if anyone happens to have heard of any draft ideas that were thrown out when GT's run was cut shor...

Re: Do you think the Boo saga was the most brutal in the series ?

There was occasional gore here & there....stuff involving Super Boo/Bootenks & Kid Boo especially Spopovitch/Videl beatdown was definitely brutal. Even Majin Vegeta vs SSJ2 Goku was hard-hitting, just as Evil Boo vs Good Boo. But who could forget Bootenks ravaging Ultimate Gohan...gosh that was brut...

Re: Your ideal Dragon Ball sequel.

Definitely not as "OP" God-power abuse as in Super Also not as grounded, "super-realistic" like GT to the point needing Super Saiyan 4 to lift collapsing building blocks An ideal DragonBall sequel would be returning to heyday DB roots (Majin Boo Arc already did that with comedy/magic), but thi time,...

Some may say that its to plan one from the beggining, but then you get shit like How I Met Your Mother. So what exactly makes one in your opinion. Of course, some felt GT was the better ending. Other disagree and say its Un-Toriyama. So what makes a satisfying ending in your opinion. FMAB & Inuyash...

Re: Gotenks is by far the most annoying canon character of the entire franchise

IMO nothing can possibly beat Mr. Satan and the reporter in the Cell Games with the sheer amount of utter, illogical disrespect they show to the main characters. It isn't once funny to me. Luckily the reporter never appears again and Mr. Satan has a proper character arc in the next storyline. Goten...
