Re: Other Fictional Characters that would fit in Dragon Ball

Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star. I'm not so sure. Hokuto Shinken loses it's dramatic effect if the power levels get too high. The Ashura arc was already a bit too "beam spam" for my taste. And the fact that Kenshiro's super stoic personality won't bounce off Gokuu's "let's fight for fun" attit...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 3/31/20!)

Broken promises: Gokuu: "This time I will stay dead" Vegeta: "I will never fight again" Tenshinhan: "We will never meet again" Kaioushin: "I am the strongest god" But even if some things are walked back a bit I do agree that Toriyama is trying real change this arc, and that Super don't seem ready to...

Re: If Thanos appeared, would Goku hand him the stones?

Gokuu wouldn't get a fight out of it so no. Thanos would just be like Zen-ou and wipe the universe.

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Technically, Infinity War was actually based on Infinity Gauntlet . I’m pretty sure they just named it the former because it sounds cooler. If by "based on" you mean they both have a person named Thanos and an object called the Infinity Gauntlet but are otherwise radically different from start to f...

Uh yeah... about that. Lol can the dude only draw one girl face and two boy faces?

Re: Which Goku Is A more likable Character: Funimation Goku Or Original Japanese Goku:

"Funimation Gokuu" isn't even a thing anymore. As they've gotten better the English dub has gotten closer and closer to the intention of the Japanese script. Only people like us who discuss the subtle implications of every line would even notice a difference between the two versions of say, Resurrec...

Re: The 28 planets

I appreciate the effort put in to this, but the "only 28 planets" thing is the single dumbest thing in all of Dragonball, even beating out the "I never kissed chichi" or "But I thought you wanted a boat" If I get a "personal canon" it's everything but that one line.

Re: Why do so many Z fans refuse to watch the original Dragon Ball?

Why does it need promotion at all? It's the first part of the story. Does East Blue need ads separate from normal One Piece promotion for people to read it?

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

Does whether one piece of Dragon Ball media being "canon" or not ever matter that this stage? Anime fans care more about canon than the Church. But now that Broly is in Super, I wonder if we have finally reached a singularity where DB fans give up on it. It's not like canon ever meant anything, the...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 6/4/18!)

Great video as always. I do wish you talked more about Vegeta's transformation and "pure evil" quote. Like with Gokuu starting from Freeza, Vegeta's first (seen) super saiyan transformation marks his complete change from a sneaky practical fighter to "I will only fight your final form". This is attr...

Re: Should Dragon Ball move forward from the "Goku Saga"? If yes, what new DB stories would you like to see?

No. I don't like how Star Wars is "moving on" (making more movies every year until everybody dies) and I don't want Dragonball to do the same. The Staw Wars universe is "big" only because all the books and stuff made it that way. The actual story is only about the Skywalkers. Dragonball is even more...
