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

Great Saiyaman was where Gohan showed the most amount of flair in his character. It's such a shame it only lasted a handful of chapters and most of the elements introduced with the Great Saiyaman persona were abandoned so quickly.

Re: Endings

Yeah, the movie version of the Beers arc is much better. I would like to keep in mind that a certain executive interfered with the TV version, though. This is why I believe it was not only written generically but also had such poor animation. Wait what? This is news to me. Who got involved and fuck...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Just saying Krillin is one of the characters that doesn’t suffer from the decision to skip Dragon Ball. Tien, Chaozu, Puar, Oolong, Kami, Mr. Popo, and Yajirobe? Those characters suffer big time from Dragon Ball being skipped. I’d almost say Yamcha but Z does a good job of re-introducing him as Bul...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I never insinuated that Dragon Ball is a complex or intertwined story. I'm just saying that character and story beats that are the most famous from Dragon Ball Z don't carry a lot of emotional weight when you ignore the foundation that was provided for them in the events that take place before the ...

Re: Endings

Endings are important and necessary for any kind of narrative. But what's just as important is making sure the ending is good and appropriate for the kind of the story that has been told. The last thing you want is for a story to end with several lost plot threads that were never resolved or to have...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

You can enjoy decent amounts of Dragon Ball Z in a vacuum, but you are fooling yourself if you think you're getting the most out of Dragon Ball's narrative by not needing to take into context what happened prior to the Saiyan arc. You don't have to "get the most" out of the story to still enjoy an ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

What is that supposed to mean? :eh: That countless fans of the franchise grew up watching DBZ without having seen DB and it didn't prevent them from being able to enjoy it in the least bit. Likewise, you can ignore Z and end your run of DB after Piccolo's defeat if you were really so inclined (I do...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

You mean like how you " can't " ignore Dragon Ball when watching DBZ? What is that supposed to mean? :eh: Here's the thing though...you absolutely can ignore Dragon Ball Minus. For one thing it wasn't written until LONG after the original manga run ended. And it took until Dragon Ball Super Broccol...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Dragon Ball Minus is the worst additional content ever produced for the franchise. I don't know how unpopular that opinion is, but, yeah... Episode of Bardock and Super Dragon Ball Heroes are worse imo. At least Minus can serve the point of seeing what the original author's idea of that story would...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Anyone who has has sibling knows you never take the whole "I'll kill you" threat seriously. I have a sibling. The point wasn't whether 17 should take it seriously, the point was that 18's dialogue to 17 in the anime occupies a range anywhere from "downright hostile" to "needlessly sappy", and often...

lol that's a "joke" threat .. it doesn't pretend to be anything more than that Poor argument. The tone of their interaction doesn't imply it's a joke. That close-up shot of 18 glaring intently at 17 while threatening him doesn't imply it's a joke. Kuririn desperately trying to make the situation le...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

What could the Z gang do against Saganbo when their dog pile got tossed aside? Strategy works up to a point, like it did against 7-3. That was a great team effort. However, the plot escalated, they were no longer needed. Asking for the humans to unite Power Rangers style at that point is unreasonab...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Random and scattered thoughts of Chapter 58: - Goku slipping into "waku waku shi masu" mode was quite jarring given how the majority of the arc has had a serious tone. As well as how concentrated and focused Goku has been for the most part of the storyline. This was kind of the shit that all over th...
