Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

I just realised the only 3 anime (Conan, DBS, OP) I'm watching right, are the Top 3 in Japan :lol:

Conan I'm legit watching out of childhood nostalgia, OP is just fresh to me since I only picked it up recently, and DBS is the double combo of nostalgia + freshness :D

Re: What I think Super lacks in comparaison to Z

Super lacks development of the characters. Please tell me how Vegeta and Goku develop as characters. You can't because they haven't. And don't give me that whole Vegeta caring for his family junk because thats not NEW. Ever since the Buu Arc he has always cared about his family. Him repeating it ov...

Re: What I think Super lacks in comparaison to Z

Nah, come on. I think Super's plot and writing is pretty subpar, but characterisation is one of the best, if not the best trait. I don't think Z has superior characterisation to Super, simply because Super was more self aware. Z had amazing plots up until Cell imo. The Saiyan arc, Namek arc, and Tru...

Re: Your thoughts on the Tournament of Power compared to the Dragon World's other arcs

The plot was shit, but I liked the arc, which just goes to show how well the other stuff was executed, to balance out the shit plot. Animation, music, choreography, characterisation were all on point. Definitely not above Future Trunks arc. Future Trunks is 3rd best saga after Frieza (including Saiy...

Re: Would Freeza becoming a good guy be considered good writing or bad?

Ehhhh. Considering he murdered both Goku's and Vegeta's fathers it's a bit much imo.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I've gotta say, that usually it's Toei the one dropping the ball, but over the course of DBS Toriyama's writing has been lackluster. With this Jiren fight, Toei has gone above and beyond what Toriyama's given them. Not to say that Toriyama has ran out of his ideas. I do think these ideas are in fact...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

When you get to Dragon Ball's level of fame it's damned if you do, damned if you don't. The main criticism of DB has been "but Goku always wins". What happened with Beerus, Hit, Zamasu, fuck even with Frieza the first time around? Goku has never had a clean win this entire series at the end of an arc.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 100

Does anyone know who directed/storyboarded that scene in 110 where Belmod is speaking telepathically to Jiren. Sends shivers down your spine.

And if anyone DOES know, what other scenes have they done?

Wow, shocked at those OP ratings. That Sanji episode was probably the most important episode post time skip, and they put tons of effort into that.

Re: Official Unofficial "Dragon Ball Super" Power Level Discussion Thread

This is hilarious. A year and half ago, basically when Super started, I made a shitty quality video called " Discussion: Which of the 12 Universes is the strongest one? " with Text-to-Audio software (didn't have mic), debating which Universes are the strongest. I pretty much called it that Universe ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Not sure if someone mentioned this, but I read a Youtube comment that was very interesting with respect to Gods. That Toriyama was basing his character designs based on different polytheistic religions around the world: Egyptian for Cats, Norse for Dwarves. Maybe we'll see someone like a Raijin from...

Re: How is Trunks' moments anymore of an ass pull then Gohan/Goku?

Super saiyan three Goku is an asspull in every sense of the word, there was no foreshadowing, there was no reference to it, and earlier on in the buu arc Goku even out right stated that he didn't know if he could beat Majin Buu, when he totally could. Gohan's SSJ2 was referenced, but it was horribl...

Re: How is Trunks' moments anymore of an ass pull then Gohan/Goku?

I wouldn't really call Gohan SSJ2 or Goku SSJ3 asspulls. Gohan unleashing his potential had been building up ever since the start of Z. He reached SSJ2 in the chamber momentarily. That transformation didn't come out of nowhere. And as for SSJ3, Goku had been in the afterlife for 7 years. It'd be har...

That title belongs to Sword Art Online (And much of the rest of the Fantasy World genre) and I doubt I'll ever be convinced otherwise. If my avatar didn't show a little but of bias then I don't know what will. I think why FMA is so well regarded is it's characters (Among soundtrack and animation), ...

Re: Does anyone else think Super is awful?

Story telling as high quality as Hunter X Hunter and Fullmetal Alchemist? FMA has got to be the most overrated anime ever. And it's in my top 5-6 so I'm not biased against it or anything. People think any show that takes itself seriously, is somehow deeply complex. FMA is no more complex than any o...

For 12 year olds, George Bush, and anime fans, there is no such thing as nuance. Everything is either amazing or awful. Even if you dislike certain things about the series, denying the awesomeness of a villain like Black, some of the great fighting choreography we've gotten, slice of life episodes, ...
