Re: Why did people used to think Naruto would overtake Dragonball in popularity?

So was Naruto originally planned to be the new Dragonball? What stopped it from reaching Dragonball's heights? Naruto was planned to be the next cash cow anime, and considering it's still releasing new video games to this very day, it did what it was supposed to do. Make tons of money worldwide. Wh...

Re: Dragon Ball and "Feminism"

Are we really going to have this argument again? I'm not gonna repeat myself but I will say what the problem is. The op is the problem. The op is very clearly one of those people with Aspergers that doesn't know any better. He/she reads social justice tumblrs, then comes here(or goes to reddit) to w...

Re: What happens when people die in Dragon Ball?

I thought I remembered Goku's body fading away after he died. Or I'm guessing that was done by Kami or whoever so he could have his body in afterworld.

Re: How do you view the racial/ethnic appearance of Saiyans?

I've always found it odd that the same people who were adamant Goku be white "because he's an alien" are the same people who claim Chi Chi and Yamcha should be Asian. Am I the only one who sees no difference between the three, feature-wise? Am I really to believe if Yamcha was revealed to be a lost ...

Re: DB/Fiction's Handling of Diversity

If you're an SJW, and you're disturbed that too many straight, white males aren't being inclusive enough, tough shit.

Did you guys forget Toriyama said in an interview that he wanted to make an SSJ form with white hair? I remember the DB youtubers(Qaaman & Geekdom) made videos about it. I think. :think:

Re: Things in the Story that bother You

The only thing that bothers me really is how long the sagas take to end. The Frieza saga was fine. But the next one going from two androids, to two other androids, to Cell and then cell blowing up then reviving. I still haven't seen like a quarter of the Buu saga because of this. It went from fat bu...

Re: Unseen abilities

My cousin swears all DB characters have telekinesis. He claims all the characters have used it at one point but I don't recall such a thing. He said this after me and him watched an episode where Goku used some form of telekinesis. It was long a time ago so I can't remember which episode it was exac...

Re: Questioning the obvious stereotype of Zarbon

He's always reminded me of Vega from Street Fighter. As a child I was always under the impression he was just a pretty boy. As an adult, I can see the gay thing now but only because of his vocal tone. Zarbon and King Cold both come off as being homosexual. The voice actors tend to sigh in a very dra...

Re: Is it time GT gets recognized as an alternate timeline rather than just "not canon?"

Yes it should. Didn't someone state the movies take place in their own alternate timelines? And remember that minor appearance of Cooler during the Super Android 17 arc. End of Z would be also an alternate timeline because I don't remember Pan being able to fly. Tho I've only seen it once so maybe s...

Re: Are Saiyans naturally monogamous?

As far as I've read, monogamy is a quality of medium-high-QI-people while poligamy is in the opposite way. Since the Saiyans are ranked by power, it could be a matter of the stronger the Saiyan the more he is affined with monogamy. If you pick Vegeta for example, he seems quite smart in comparison ...

Re: A female Saiyan may work in a domestic comedy

We finally get a full-blooded Saiyan female but she's a housewife dealing with everyday normal life things... No thanks. Also, Goku is "inept" because that's who he is, that's what makes him Goku. Not every Saiyan is an idiot. Vegeta for example, transitioned to earth life very well. I'm totally dow...
