Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

My problem is Toriyama didn't go far enough in intentionally shit posting people. Those were easily the most fun parts of the movie and they were too far from one another. I wanna see Krillin out-doing Blue Vegeta, SS Gohan getting knocked out by a stray pebble,...

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

Or let a series that ended its manga in 1995 and its anime in 1997 die... Silly Masenko, nothing ever ends. Not sure what you mean by this. Maybe not changing rules, but retcons to some parts (Beerus ordering to destroy Planet Vegeta, Potara one hour fusion limit etc.) And power levels were very in...

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

Cape shit will continue to go on for a long while. I won't believe audiences are getting sick of it until the Marvel stuff starts underperforming. Though it'll be highly amusing to see what Hollywood will milk dry after that well inevitably goes dry. The day superhero movies die will be the day cin...

So it's delayed? Well hopefully for a good cut like Goku vs Hearts was from sometime back.

and since I don't think anyone else has said it yet.

NICE!
So long as Yam boards there is no hope.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Characters should appear for a purpose, to advance a theme or to play off of someone else or to serve as a good setup/punchline for a joke. They shouldn't be included because of some arbitrary fan quota of appearances. More Bardock, Gine and King Vegeta add nothing: their kids flat out tell us, the ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

I assume you are talking specifically about Raditz, Nappa and their fight, which is kind of besides my point (though it would be great to see more of them indeed, but in a different context, contributing a bit more to the tiny story the movie has). Bardock, Gine, King Vegeta and Paragus, however, s...

Re: Why does the Garlic Jr. filler arc exist?

Garlic Jr. was made to save the production. Around the time Goku vs Freeza was animated, the staff realized they messed up and were only about a dozen chapters worth of material behind Toriyama. This lead to the atrocious pacing of the later Namek section. In an effort not to do the entire rest of t...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Broly isn't getting an extended cut. They sotryboarded a version which would've lasted 3 hours then out of that material actually animated about a hundred minutes worth. All that other time is nothing but boards with no animation to speak of unlike BoG which had fully animated stuff existing which w...

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

I don't like Disney period but I don't in-general trust anyone in America to do DB well. Contrary to what most of the fanbase believes, DB is more than just cool looking designs flying, punching and shooting at each other. Its a series with a very specific kind of attitude to its world, characters, ...

As for the actual idea of a Disney DB movie: There's literally not a living human being in Hollywood I trust not fuck up a take of theirs on DB. Gokû would have all his rough edges removed even worse than the 90s FUNimation dub, with a mandatory song about how he's a confused lad looking for his pla...

What the hell was it about TLJ that still pisses people off so much even two years removed? Johnson is too nice a guy to intentionally avoid doing something because it would please people.

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Dabra called Gohan trash after fighting him, so he was probably holding back in their fight. And Trunks mastered Z-Sword, so he was at the very least as strong as Gohan before the ultimate power-up. He doesn't call Gohan trash after fighting him. Goku and Vegeta both know Gohan can beat Dabra, the ...

You don’t need to fit Boo Arc or anything else in this. The scene in which Cell easily wrecks Gohan should tell you enough. Anyway, there is nothing saying Dabra can’t take Super Saiyans, it’s actually implied he was holding back against Gohan. Trunks even needed SS2 and Kaioshin’s help to beat him...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Gohan didn’t finish Cell off with only half of his full power though. That wouldn’t make sense, since Cell was finally able to hurt him, which shows their strength became similar. Before that point, Gohan was no selling his attacks. In that final push, Gohan just managed to release all his strength...

Re: Official Unofficial Power Level Discussion Thread

Why would Super Perfect Cell be weaker than 50% SS2 Gohan though? Seems more like he is about even with Gohan. Gohan says half his Ki was lost when Cell blasted his arm. Then later on Goku says Gohan is holding back even this amount of power because he's afraid he'll blow up the Earth. Not that he'...
