Re: Does anyone else see the Saiyan saga as being special

I always viewed the Saiyan Saga (and by extension, the Namek Saga) as being the peak of the series. Everything before and after is inferior, imo. That whole 1989-1991ish period was not too fight focused like Cell/Buu era & GT, yet also not too cutesy and comedic like DB and Super. It was SUPER figh...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue - [Updated with #52]

<giant post about Z Ep #165 snipped> Hell, you say it's off-model, but even then, those Trunks gifs have nice animation and more importantly the faces look good and consistent. That's been the biggest issue with Super so far. The characters aren't drawn consistently in the same episode, and their f...

Re: Your Problem(s) with DragonBall Super

Oddly enough... gohan being out of commission is something I'm okay with. I mean, come on guys, it makes perfect sense for his character arc! He never had a natural drive to fight - he only fought either when he was forced to, or if he needed to protect people close to him. He never had the instinc...

Re: Does anyone else see the Saiyan saga as being special

There should be a DB Super arc that goes back in time to those three years before the android saga so that we can see the cast fight together with some sort of power parity. I would love an arc where two or three characters that aren't Goku or Vegeta go back to that time period. No little kids coul...

Re: Does anyone else see the Saiyan saga as being special

The early android arc is similar, since Goku is there with them.

Re: Buu saga Goku is the best version of the character

I agree, Goku's character is very different in Super - not that they even changed him, but rather they reverted him back to how he was in before the Buu arc. Although , I will say that against Majinn Vegeta, goku didn't really take Vegeta seriously at that point. He probably thought he was going thr...

[*]The retellings of the movies were bad. [*]And Universe 6 felt rushed, and almost useless, even if it was enjoyable to watch at the time.

Re: Do you feel weird watching Mai's scenes in Dragonball now?

It's weird.

She's technically in her 40's, since she and Pilaf and Shu still maintained their memories of world domination and dragon balls and Goku.

Don't know why they couldn't make a new female character.

Re: DBZ vs DBS - Animation [Comparing Objectively]

This isn't said enough;

The main issue with Dragon Ball Super's animation is that the characters aren't drawn on-model enough, and the lighting is off.

Re: How did the Japanese first react to Goku's Super Saiyan?

Most dub fans had probably seen Ssj Goku before he transformed on Tv. ALL American dub fans had seen Goku and Vegeta go SSJ since the first episode. As well as a SSJ Trunks killing Freeza. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dP75aZvWVdw Kinda dropped the ball on that one Funimation. :roll: But the thin...

The title says it all. I know there is a tumblr for Toriyama's art in general, but I want to see specifically his Dragon Ball art because it looks beautiful.

Re: Thoughts on Cell arc

Why do people say that the arc was unfocused or had no foreshadowing? The whole point of the story style was to have plot twists. That's why Trunks and the crew fight the androids so soon after he arrives; because those androids weren't meant to be the main villains. there was another in the shadows...

Re: New Animation VS Old Animation

I hope people don't get the idea that it's because digital animation isn't good for Dragon Ball... because that itsn't the reason why the new episodes look weird. As stated in the first page, the characters simply aren't drawn that well. Period. This a gif from a DBKAI opening. I think it's drawn pr...
