Re: Dragon Ball probably won't bother going past EoZ, or even close to it; it may very well just ignore it...

Placing the Super stuff within the 10 year time skip wouldn’t have been a problem if it were meant to just be a mini-series. Unfortunately, it’s supposed to be an ongoing thing that apparently doesn’t have any real end in sight. It’s ridiculous that they keep trying to cram so much stuff in that tim...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

This game really skips over the epilogue of the manga? That’s pretty disappointing. It’s unfortunate enough that the game only covers the Z era, but not even covering the official ending of the series? Well, I guess it’s possible that they’re leaving the door open for a potential sequel to cover the...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

Some interesting notes about the voice cast in case anyone is wondering. -Daman Mills is Frieza in this, not Chris Ayres, despite the latter finishing his work on Super. Chris's condition is very on-off these days, I think. -Bryan Massey is Oolong again, much like in the final arc of Super. I guess...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

I never even realized that Tenshinhan x Chaotzu was an actual thing that people were wondering about. I know there have always been jokes in the fandom about them being gay, but I always assumed they were just that, jokes, just like the joke about Batman and Robin (AKA, Batman’s adopted son) being a...

Re: WIth Pokemon Live Action a thing, maybe a serious Live Action DB Series could work...

I'm sure they'll eventually try again. DB Evolution was following the Transformers movie principle of Hollywood adaptations ie- we're faintly ashamed of this property but we know it sells, so we'll just attach the name to a bunch of cookie-cutter cliches. Next time would be the MCU approach- more s...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

As far as Ian James Corlett vs Peter Kelamis is concerned, the big thing Kelamis has over Corlett would probably be the screams. With that said, Corlett’s voice is definitely more natural sounding overall, but I guess some might argue that Goku should sound weird and wild. Anyway, I do think it’s in...

How often does Western animation cast the same actor to play a parent and their child? That seems more like a Japanese thing to me.

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

I legit don't get why "it tells the story from the anime/manga" is a legitimate complaint about a Dragon Ball game. I get that maybe the oversaturation of DB games that have done that may have led to some burnout, but it's more all in the execution. Plus, it's a Dragon Ball game. To not expect it t...

Re: What if dragon ball was a comic book series?

Not all Western comics function like Marvel or DC. There are comics with a single creative vision that follow linear story arcs. An example would be The Walking Dead, which ended last year. Still, I’m assuming that the OP is specifically asking about what Dragon Ball would be like if it followed the...

By the time Goku starts doing controversial stuff (the 23rd Budokai, though that only barely counts since it was necessary to keep Kami alive Not the reason why he didn't kill Piccolo.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I wish Goku were more a more sinister battle junkie (like HxH's Hisoka) instead of Peter Griffin, Kung Fu Master. What I find most fun about selfish, amoral (and I do mean amoral as opposed to I'm moral) characters is just how they warp what would otherwise be "good" ideals and play with how the wo...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

On the subject of Dragon Ball vs Power Rangers: Power Rangers is extremely schlocky, but in all honesty, how could it not be? It’s a low budget live-action children’s program that uses stock footage and rubber monster suits and spandex from a low budget Japanese children’s program. It’s such a ridic...

Re: Which series has better powerscaling, GT or Super?

There actually was setup to Zen-Oh showing up to defeat Zamasu. His present counterpart gave Goku the button earlier. With that being said, him being able to conveniently wipe an immortal being from existence always seemed like a lazy and anti-climactic resolution to me.

Re: If You Could Rewrite the Dragon Ball Manga, How Would You Do It?

Dragon Balls, that can be used by the villains. It can only be used directly by deities. If they just so happen to be villainous deities, then yeah. But villains are more likely to use the regular Dragon Balls. I guess. Honestly, I never really had a problem with the Super Dragon Balls aside from t...

It seems like Toei just didn’t care when it came to the Boo arc for Kai. If I recall correctly, Kai’s version of the Boo arc wasn’t even originally supposed to air on Japanese television. It was pretty much made specifically for an international audience. If that’s the case, it would explain their u...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/19!)

I’ve always been pretty ambivalent towards the Garlic Jr. arc. Maybe part of the reason I don’t hate it so much is because I was pretty used to it being treated as an official part of the story back when the series aired on Toonami (Cartoon Network marathoned the arc a lot), but I’ve never hated the...
