Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

While talking to Gohan in the ViZ translation, Piccolo says that he's in the Underworld; this is inaccurate because that would technically be Hell. The term "underworld" is often used to refer to the realm of the dead in general, not just the Judeo-Christian concept of Hell. I associate it with the...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

I haven't had any problems with the pacing of this arc so far. I think maybe once it hits Goku/Freeza that might change. I prefer Sabat's original Vegeta voice to the remastered stuff, especially in these episodes. He gets some memorable dialogue in them. I never understood the big deal with the "pi...

I don't think a bikini on a twelve year old is a huge deal. She's warrior-royalty, not hanging out at the boardwalk.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Yeah Yajirobe could easily be an "untrained fighter". Meaning that he was self-taught, no master necessary. He can do the things he does through a combination of inborn talent and real life training and experience in the wilderness. The guy certainly has been in some tough situations during his life...

Re: The Plausibility of the Boo Arc

BTW 2: Is it ''Boo'' or ''Buu''? Which would be the correct spelling? And how is it written on Steven Simmons's subtitles (can't remember that, unfortunately)? Technically they are both "correct". The character's name comes from the "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" song in Disney's Cinderella . ブウ( buu ) is j...

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

Shounen literally means young boy. I hate to break it to you guys but teenagers on the cusp of adulthood are not considered young boys. Shounen just means "boys" or "youths". Shou meaning "a few" and nen meaning "years". Not necessarily "young boys" specifically. At any rate, 6-12 seems a little bi...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 53 - DBZ Movie 4 (CURRENT WEEK)

Yeah this movie ain't really good in my view. Right off the bat there's Gohan whistling and dancing and it just feels out of character. Maybe even only there to setup the ending. This movie seems in some ways like a poor rehash of Tree of Might with alien invaders coming and attacking the planet its...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Erasa and Sharpener should've appeared later in story, at least in anime. Especially Erasa. I always liked that character. They were not major characters, but they still got some cool screentime, especially in all those anime fillers in school which i absolutely loved. I wish either GT or Super onc...

Re: Is Mr Popo an alien too?

It is the entire package of Mr.Popo when combined together that makes him a racist caricature. How? What about him makes him a "racist caricature" rather than a genie? He looks like a genie, he dresses like a genie, he talks like a genie, he's a servant like genies are, he has a magic carpet like g...

Mr. Popo has never been a Black man.
No one ever said he was. But he’s clearly based on racist caricatures of black men
God/Kami was never supposed to be a demon.


Again pretty much nobody ever said he was.
Jord says these things in the opening post.

The Daizenshū states that Mr. Popo, along with Karin, are beings originating from the Next World who were sent to Earth to be God's assistants. Mr. Popo has never been a Black man. God/Kami was never supposed to be a demon. That's interesting but talking about Kami... When he was introduced in DB h...

Piccolo was evil, and was a dick. End of story. It makes sense for an evil person to be a dick, but he was still a dick.
I guess I don't see evil and dickery as being the same things. I know Piccolo was evil, but I never saw him as a dick. Certainly not with Gohan.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Piccolo was the Devil reborn. Threatening to snap a neck isn't unexpected...That's not being a dick. If anything it's the opposite. I know this thread is called "unpopular opinions", but it is best you back your arguments with consistent logic. What does that mean? Piccolo was evil, so it makes sen...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Chichi pampered Gohan. Even when Piccolo gave him the apples he was still complaining and whining about all the other food and things he was missing from home. I don't think I would call it a "kidnapping" necessarily. The others didn't put up much of a fight, and seemed to understand why Piccolo too...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The joke falls flat when you remember how much of an actual dick Piccolo was to Gohan in the former half of their training, yet people keep harping it because "Goku bad dad". When was Piccolo ever a dick to Gohan? He was tough, but those were the circumstances. Plus Gohan was a spoiled brat in the ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The way I understand it is that Freeza's first form is his natural form. He created the other forms because his power is so great that he must transform himself in order to control it. His fourth form is him at full power, not the form he was born in.

I don't remember, how did they revive Freeza after he was killed by Freeza? They couldn't revive him with the Dragon Balls like everyone else, he already got revived when he was killed by Piccolo? If you mean Kuririn he was revived by the Namekian dragon Porunga, not Shen Long. Porunga can bring ba...
