Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Playing SDBH on switch, arcade mode specifically, makes it obvious that the bosses are definitely money-eaters if you hope to beat them, and combined with spending real money on cards... I can see it getting expensive. But I realized, I don't know what the rewards are. What do people in Japan get fo...

Gogeta's Sparkly Ball

In the context of the Fusion Reborn movie, I could have sworn it wasn't an attack that dealt serious damage but rather took the evil out of the kid that had become Janemba. In video games and such things (I don't remember if it was in the Broly movie), it seems to have been repurposed as just anothe...

Re: When did you start liking Vegeta?

Baby (in Gohan's body): you wouldn't hurt your friend's son, now would you? Vegeta (grinning): what makes you say that? (Not exact wording) GT was my first dragon Ball show, so that's where my first moment I liked him comes from. Other notable ones are the shaved moostache and the "you hit my Bulma...

Re: Would you be interested in a dubbed version of Super DB Heroes?

I don't care so much about dubbed, but I really want an official localized version--subbed is fine--so that I can watch it in some capacity of English officially.

"Evil Goku" In the Fandom

I do know that the concept of Evil Goku was always a popular fan one before Goku Black was the new official "Evil Goku"--i also am a sucker for "dark" versions of existing characters/protagonists. I also know that Turles was one of the (if not THE) earliest explorations of an "Evil Goku" concept off...

Popular Fan Animations

In this topic I'd like to bring up and ask you, the reader, about your thoughts on how these kinds of videos contribute to the dragon Ball fan experience. Specifically here, I'm talking about those popular fan animation channels on YouTube with admittedly clickbaity videos of fantasy dragon Ball fig...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I'm not a fan of the trend for new Mugen dragon Ball characters being in a small "JUS" (Jump ultimate Superstars? Presumably an old game?) Sprite style. I think this is unpopular because when I try to look up new dragon Ball super Mugen characters/games, most new ones are like this. I prefer the tal...

Re: Who are your favourite DBS characters?

Beerus, Whis, Zeno, and Hit. I dont really dislike any Super characters besides Jiren, but these are my top favorites. If we count returning characters add Vegeta, 17, and Frieza to that list. Btw its really not just because they're the among the strongest beings! Beerus is great and hilarious becau...

Re: what do people think of SSBE

I don't know about "people", but I really dig it. Its shiny, strong, and a very nice shade of blue. It looks cool and I enjoyed seeing Vegeta fight Jiren and Toppo with it, and thats enough for me to think its awesome :D

Re: When Fights Don't Know Where to End

DBS Final Episodes Spoiler Ahead: [spoiler]I really liked how the jiren battle ended. Yeah, Goku's affliction sounds like its the same schtick they do with fusion -- that kind of "reversal" is becoming predictable -- but the final turnaround with Goku and Frieza teaming up and powering Jiren out of ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I'm a sucker for the predictable over the top fan forms. From SSJ5+, character specifics like Nightmare Broly, to more recently giving blue hair and ultra instinct to all the super saiyan forms. Big muscles and colorful hair! Not saying they'd work in any official context, but the fanarts and mugen ...

When Fights don't Know Where to End

Update after seeing Episode 130: [spoiler]I still think it's silly that Jiren just keeps powering up and the fight isn't over, but the battle is so visually pleasing and exciting that I really enjoyed it. As for the end of the episode, I was super excited to say the least to see two of my favorite t...

Re: The "Omega Shenron" Effect

Just wondering why GT is what you are most familiar with. You should go back and watch DB from the beginning. It's the only series I've seen all the way through. I watched it first when I wanted to see what Dragon Ball was all about because I figured at the time that it was the shortest and I could...

Re: The "Omega Shenron" Effect

And, while we're at it, how about we call this the Jiren Effect, and actually discuss how it affects Super and the rest of the franchise, rather than wasting another cool idea for a thread on several pages of mindless GT bashing. GT is still the Dragon Ball I am most well-versed in, so I derived th...

Re: The "Omega Shenron" Effect

From Tenshinhan to Vegeta is a stretch of great final fights after another. I like the Freeza fight but that treads water a lot. The fighting is brutal and vicious but it's far too long. The 1 star Dragon fight was a good length, and I don't think ending it with Gogeta destroying him was impactful ...

I'm sure there's a better name for this, but this is how I best associate it because it's the most prominent example to me given how much of the Dragon Ball franchise I've watched/experienced.

Re: What era of DB were you exposed to?

Exposed? Late 2000's, when I was around middle school - I remember the PS2 3D fighters and wondering why the forms went from long blonde hair to longer blonde hair to red and black, lol I also remember explicitly avoiding it because my reasoning was "this show where people scream all day CAN'T be be...
