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

Hopefully the entire cast would not be Asian. I think a Caucasian Buruma would be appropriate, along with the other urban peoples being a mix of White folks and other races. I hope they include animal-people as well. I also hope they don't make it too much of a "children's movie". I think that it's ...

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the M symbol for Madoshi rather than Majin anyway? As in Bibidi and Babidi's insignia?
I believe that Toriyama stated that the "M" symbol was just supposed to refer to ma (魔) in general, and not specifically madoushi or majin or etc.

Re: Looks like Japan have finally ditched the Son "Gokou" spelling!

Toriyama could have just as well used "魔神" instead of "魔人" and it wouldn't have made a difference, as both are used to describe demons/genies despite the difference in Kanji. And while it may be specific to Boo within the context of that particular story arc, the term "Majin" in a broader context co...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

2. Do we know indisputably that Namekians are a one gender race that reproduce asexually? The one Namekian we saw do this was a demonic entity who was mostly spitting out decidedly non-Namekian looking spawns until he rebirthed himself. Not sure if we can use him as hard evidence that this is how t...

And culture is chosen. They fully embraced the life of genocidal land sharks. Goku and Vegeta to a lesser extent is proof they have free will, but in 99.999999999% of cases they chose... poorly. I'm not sure how anyone can choose the culture that they are born into. The brain is shaped and molded f...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Didn't Piccolo have a weird reaction in DBS when Goku and Vegeta were talking about their wives? It was said that, because Goku and Vegeta are strong, so are Chi-Chi and Bulma with them, but to Piccolo it was like a revelation, like he had been trying to figure it out. This sounds more like the old...

Re: DragonBall should do more with politics

The system is still very much designed to keep blacks at a disadvantage which is why we have so much problems dealing with the law. The cases with Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner are proof of this. I'm not sure how those cases relate to the Saiyans being cold-blooded killers. Nor wou...

Re: DragonBall should do more with politics

The Saiyans aren't analogs to African slaves. They were willing accomplices. The Saiyans weren't victims. They were gangsters who the big boss killed because he feared they'd try and take his throne. Many Africans were willing accomplices in the slave trade and the Saiyans were technically victims ...

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

Perhaps the staff did not want to waste any time developing something entirely new and instead went back to what was already done. Garlic Junior was a movie villain who was still alive unlike the rest, and had ties to Gohan which was important because of Goku's absence. Maybe there were some unused ...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

OG DB is really weird at first, as is any long-runner when it first starts out, but it's an absolute blast. Maybe it's just me but I never really thought of the first DB arc as "weird". I mean I guess the series takes some time to find itself, but I was never put off by it. DB's also available on H...

You don't have to be a literal demon, or more specifically a genie in Boo's case, Just letting you know because this is a Vizism because they called him a Djinn which means Genie in Arabic if I'm not mistaken, while actually his race has been called the Majin Race. Mr. Popo's a genie, Mr. Boo is no...

Majin Vegeta may be a fan name and lack official legitimacy, but it's not completely inaccurate. You don't have to be a literal demon, or more specifically a genie in Boo's case, to be called majin . It can be used figuratively as well. Also we already know Bobbidi is using his magic to take control...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Not to mention that King Piccolo clearly called him "son" when he created him. This sounds like it came from FUNimation. In the original, Daimao uses the expression wagako meaning "my child". Nope. The English manga uses “son” as well. I don't know what Toriyama wrote in the manga, so maybe it's di...

Does anyone know why Lunch was named Launch in the dub? I don't think that there was necessarily any particular reason. They may have just liked the sound of it. I thought maybe it had something to do with all the weapons. To be fair I don't think it was ever confirmed anywhere that ranchi was supp...

Super Saiyans are not supposed to be out of control rage monsters. Rage is only the trigger for the transformation. And clearly Goku takes his anger out on Freeza from the jump.

That kind of rage might be fitting for a child, but once Goku is an adult it wouldn't really make much sense.
