Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I can't get over how much I love Cell's introduction. It's literally perfect.

Re: The height conundrum

Minor nitpick: Piccolo is 7'5/226 cm. Huh, and I'm sure I corrected someone for the exact same thing earlier. Damn. If anything I've always been confused by how small Kami is. Consider that Piccolo is quite a bit taller than Kami here, is not at his peak height (and likely not 7'5), and in his past...

Re: The height conundrum

I don't know how big Hildegarn is supposed to be, although Shenlong is listed as 30meters(About 99ft) in this chart(which I think I got off of Funimation's facebook feed)

Re: The height conundrum

I was watching the newest TFS episode today, and there was one shot where Piccolo and Kami were standing close to one another, and then it hit me. Kami's one tall old bastard, he's almost as tall as Piccolo. http://i.imgur.com/iT8N0Wh.png (just ignore the grey play button) So, Piccolo Jr is supposed...

Re: So MLP Just Went DBZ....

Well actually that was the season-finale. Three out of the four season-finales the show has had so far has in some way shook up the status quo. (Granted the second season's was kinda minor, really only amounting to bringing in a couple of new recurring characters... Both season 3 and 4 were pretty ...

Re: So MLP Just Went DBZ....

Why? It obviously has a bigger sense of loss than DBZ after Twilight's old home got destroyed (and if My Little Pony of all things has a bigger sense of loss than your show, that's just sad) See, that's the thing, it doesn't. As we pointed out before, because of the show's episodic format, everythi...

Re: So MLP Just Went DBZ....

Have you watched the episode? Or the fight, at least? The beams alone are downright gorgeous and really fluid. Twilight's ruined library looked especially great, too. And to be fair, this was sort of a story-based format. The season finale was a two-parter. Watched the fight at the very least, and ...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Well to be fair, Gotenks is a lot taller than Trunks/Goten, so I would imagine Vegetto to be quite a bit taller than Goku/Vegeta as well.

Although I'm not gonna lie, I'm damn jelly over that Cell figure.

Re: So MLP Just Went DBZ....

How was it not? It had possibly the best animation in any cartoon ever and better pacing. The animation in the show looks like every other 2010 cartoon in existence on Teletoon and Cartoon Network. It's nothing special, and I'm pretty sure pacing is irrelevant if the show is in an episodic format a...

Re: Trunks, A Mary Sue?

Who says you need build up to have a relationship? You think people who end up dating because they met at a party and talked for 10 minutes had a lot of build up before hand?

There's no golden rule for writers, except maybe to keep the readers turning the pages.

I honestly think you can't get much better than that, even making Cell spit up #18 didn't compare to this. Super Buu has been punched so hard he's literally bursting out the pain with steam.

Re: The Newest Batch of Toriyama Tidbits...

You know, it makes you wonder what Dr.Gero's son actually looked like if #16 is based off of him. 16 is freaking enormous after all.

Re: The Newest Batch of Toriyama Tidbits...

Perhaps he thought he had Cell all figured out? I mean granted even with the false bravado of a thousand men, I wouldn't want to take on a 7-foot tall bug monster thing. Cell is my favorite character too. Still, maybe he just wasn't intimidated by him as much as his previous foes? With that said, I ...

What if Krillin's Kienzan DID kill Nappa?

Suppose that Nappa didn't hear Vegeta's "advice" to dodge the flying disk? Instead of dodging, he still tries to catch the saucer, but it doesn't end well for him, and he gets cut in half. He pretty much dies instantaneously. Piccolo would still be alive for one, so there's that. What do you guys th...

Re: The height conundrum

Yeah, Ten looks too tall in those pictures, almost 6'6" or 6'7". Or Piccolo shrunk a little bit (maybe to get under the average door?). How tall is Chi-Chi supposed to be, 5'4"? She looks accurate right next to Goku's 5'9" in those pictures.

Re: The height conundrum

Even so, Vegeta's basically 2 steps away from Trunks. A difference of 21/2" shouldn't look like that big of a gap if he's just a little behind Trunks.

Re: The height conundrum

On that last image, Vegeta is barely at Trunks's shoulders(granted, he's kinda in the background). Vegeta is 5'4.5" and Trunks is just 5'7", he shouldn't have a full head and shoulders on him. I'm 6'1", and even a person who's 5'4" just comes up to my chin.
