Re: Asian characters in Dragon Ball

It seems fair to assume that the Saiyans are supposed to be seen as one racial group (although a few of them do look somewhat tanned, such as Paragus and Kale), and since Goku is seen as Asian, by extension, that would make the rest of the Saiyans Asian as well. Personally, I don’t get why Toriyama ...

Re: Westerners love to claim Asian characters.

Obviously, the idea that Goku can’t be Asian because he’s an alien is silly It's not silly. It's being literal. Asia only exists on planet Earth, and Goku isn't from Earth. You can say Saiyans are "based" on Asians, sure. But to say they're literally Asian is categorically wrong. I didn’t mean that...

Re: Asian characters in Dragon Ball

I’m gonna be honest; I never realized people thought of Piccolo as black coded until I saw the WTS videos.

Re: Westerners love to claim Asian characters.

Obviously, the idea that Goku can’t be Asian because he’s an alien is silly, especially when he wasn’t even revealed as such until much later in the story. Although, from what I can tell, people generally seem much more willing to accept Goku as East Asian nowadays. If there were to be a live action...

Re: Did Freeza ever say, "This is not even my final form" in canon?

No. It’s just a meme. It’s not much different from how Morpheus never said “What if I told you” or how the phrase “Beam me up, Scotty” was never actually used in Star Trek.

Re: Who are the 10 most popular characters in the franchise?

I don’t see how there’s any real way of coming up with a clear answer to this question, but in terms of antagonists, it seems fair to say that Freeza and Broly are the most popular. Oh, and Vegeta as well, although people tend to recognize him more as one of the good guys.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I’m just going to point out that unlike teenage Bulma, Bra in GT is explicitly drawn with a flat chest, so I’m pretty sure Toriyama was aware that she’s supposed to be a child when when he designed her.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Speaking of ships, i'm not sure if this is unpopular or not (probably isn't) but any ship with Bulla in it is disgusting. I will never understand why some people ship her with Goten and ANDROID 17, like bro, those guys are way older than her. Ship her with someone close to her age. Just don't ship ...

Re: DBS treated Goten and Trunks really bad

I just wish they would stop acting like those two are the same age they were during the Boo saga. It’s especially jarring with Trunks, because we saw what his future self looks like at 14.

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 53 - DBZ Movie 4 (CURRENT WEEK)

It didn’t occur to me until fairly recently that this is apparently one of the more infamous movies in the franchise, right behind Movie 11. I don’t think it’s especially bad, but it is difficult to find anything that stands out about it, other than the Pseudo Super Saiyan form, which is only even t...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Minus is far too barebones of a story for me to agree with the notion that it had any good ideas. The story is literally just Bardock sending his kid to Earth so Freeza doesn’t kill him. There’s nothing more to it than that, other than getting to see Goku’s mom, who’s basically just a generic house...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

You know what? An unpopular opinion I’ve recently realized I have is that I don’t like the use of insert songs in the anime. I don’t mean that the songs themselves are bad (although I don’t really care for most of them), but I think they’re somewhat out of place. In general, I’m usually not a fan of...

Re: Which other story would you like to see re-imagined by Toriyama?

At this point, I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing his take on Cooler. Since Freeza is now a recurring character, they could get some mileage out of actually showing the dynamic these two characters have, which is something Movie 5 only vaguely hinted at. He’s also the most popular Toei villain outside ...

You are correct about the online discourse thing, which is why I said that this situation hasn’t exactly crippled FUNimation.

Re: Johnny Yong Bosch Replaces Vic Mignogna as Broly.

The majority of the audience does not care about Dick Lasagna and wouldn’t know him from Adam. If Funimation is willing to redub him it’s not a loss. It doesn’t really seem like a gain from a financial or PR perspective either. As I said, firing the guy actually generated a lot of bad PR for FUNima...

Make loser Dick Lasagna irrelevant I personally don’t like the idea of trying to erase the past. It’s one thing to do this with Scott Freeman, since that guy was actually convicted of sex crimes, but when it comes to Vic Mignogna, I don’t think keeping his previous work intact is going to hurt FUNi...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/20!)

The two Broly sequels are interesting in terms of how they give the limelight to lesser characters, namely Goten and Kid Trunks, but that also seems to be a key reason why they’re so disliked. People don’t want to see them, they want to see Goku, Gohan and Vegeta. I guess that’s why between Movie 10...
