Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Looking at the newest page, it seems Babidi's magic has toughened Freeza and Coola up enough to survive a few blows from Piccolo, though I still don't see them lasting long.

The drawing of Freeza on the bottom is nicely shaded. Boy, does he look pissed off!

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

After a long break, I finally decided to get caught up on Dragon Ball Multiverse. I got to say, this has probably been my favorite part of the comic so far, for a number of reasons: - We don't usually get to see large group battles in Dragon Ball. This one has had a lot of neat match-ups and tactics...

Re: So is Goku supposed to allow Roshi...

It's a cartoon, being offensive or not should be irrelevant. You've got videogames that glorify violence and murder such as GTA (and we all know kids play these games) and only the most extreme people actually care. The difference is that the violence in GTA is not something a typical person is goi...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Armor with double shoulder pads doesn't look too practical to me. The end goal is having Ginyu swap bodies until he gets Cold's body as it has already been established. While your scenario could be interesting, it doesn't fit what is already been established. And taking what is established in consid...

Re: Dragon Ball Z ranks 176th in NHK "Best Anime" poll.

It's so cool to see Cardcaptor Sakura (カードキャプターさくら) listed so high (number eight). It really is both a charming show and an ambitious adaptation. A lot of careful thought and passion was put into its 70 episodes. And it being the oldest show listed in the top ten means it's popularity isn't just bec...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

... Making the fight more entertaining/interesting than Ginyu simply crushing Nail with his bigger power. It would also have been far more interesting if Ginyu had remained in Nail's body, seen Lord Freeza kill Nail pretending to be him, switched with a soldier who came to finish off the "Namek" an...

What was the point of Ginyu switching bodies with Nail if it wasn't to explain how he escaped getting killed by Freeza? I can't see this as anything other than a wasted opportunity. It really looked like the special was going in a smart direction too.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Nail was probably just trying to put on a good act... and it completely backfired. Among his people, taking responsibility would be seen as noble. With Freeza, it's asking for incineration.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Just because Nail thinks he can use Ginyu's technique doesn't mean he can actually switch bodies. He'd probably fail if he tried.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Okay, I know what's going on. Freeza is going to kill Nail in Ginyu's body, and an injured Ginyu in Nail's body is going to switch with one of Freeza's goons while no one is looking.

Re: DB Fan Comic Recommendations

Unguarded a Dragon Ball Z Fan-comic Looks fun! Exploring Freeza's childhood is great territory for a comic. Giving him a Saiyan friend seems odd (it's not like there's a shortage of Dragon Ball comics with Saiyans) and I'm personally more a fan of Freeza's species reproducing asexually, but even wi...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I usually shrug at odd power discrepancies, but this is a bit much. If Goku had already been pushing his Kaioken to the tenfold level, then sure, I'd buy him taking on Freeza. Heck, even Kuririn was able to troll Freeza a little. But the comic hasn't been going out of it's way to make the fights pla...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I could buy Goku hanging on against Freeza (with the right mix of Kaioken bursts) but not at this brisk pace. The comic simply doesn't have enough space to adequately explain the logic of the fight. As great as the art is, and it is genuinely good and creative, I can't help but feel the "Freeza wins...

Why would Freeza know Raditz had a brother in this universe if he didn't seem to know about him in the original story?

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

"After a few minutes of combat" I know these specials struggle with limited page counts, but this isn't the best way to transition from one chapter to the next. Skipping most of the Captain Ginyu fight is fine, but start the scene with them trading punches and kicks before breaking it off. Show bat...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Well, I guess Dragon Ball is no stranger to this kind of thing. :lol:

Of course, if it really wanted to go for authentic Toriyama humor, it would have shown Jheese trying to get to first base and failing pathetically.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 78

I don't believe I've seen an example of Tate correcting another animator's work. What does that look like? I imagine he's more willing to stick to the character sheets when it isn't his cut.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 78

Maybe they haven't applied the final post effects to the NEP yet, for some reason? Of course, it could just be them experimenting, trying to find the right look for the show moving forward.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I don't mind Goku being weaker here than he was in U18... though I do expect the comic to explain why that is the case.

That's a great shot of Goku kicking Burta away.
