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

Anywho, this rumor is bunk, but if there was a live-action Dragon Ball movie, the nationality of the cast isn't what matters to me anywhere near as much as how they present it all. They could make literally every single person on the movie set, planning process, and script an East Asian and it would...

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

Tell me with a straight-face that any director or studio would wanna start off with Kid Goku in Mt with Grandpa Gohan, meeting Bulma, searching for DB & whole emperor Pilaf, 21st TB, RRA Arc takes place😂😂😂 Er... that's exactly what Hollywood did a decade ago. Like, full stop, they started with Goku...

Re: Why wasn't DB Kai a completely new animated series?

Regarding Yamamuro, it always baffled me how much his art worsened in so little time. His work in the 2008 OVA was halfway decent, which was just roughly a year before Kai. It would have been very interesting to see a re-animation of the series with the same designs and colors as the JSAT special. ...

Hard to tell. We have no idea how their digestive system works other than it seems like they can eat the same foods we can, but require far more calories a day. It's possible.

Re: Nostalgia for the so-called dark ages of DB

I wouldn't call it the dark ages but it definitely wasn't a good time for the video games. The series was long done at that point so games like Burst Limit and Raging Blast lacked innovation and were commercial disappointments as a result. Spike had the right idea with Ultimate Tenkaichi but the ex...

Re: Nostalgia for the so-called dark ages of DB

THIS. This was the main point I was making. My nostalgia of my youth aside, the nostalgia of the whole Akira Toriyama manga ending where he states something along the lines of "Now, you'll have to see the story through your own eyes. That'll be more exciting!" is what I'm talking about. Back when t...

Re: Are there any examples of a character winning a battle through strategy instead of strength?

Warning: slightly off-topic rant ahead. There are some in the series as previously mentioned in other posts, but for the most part, "DB was all strategy and Z was all strength" is more of a meme that was taken seriously for Super. DB from the start was always about who was stronger, faster, and more...

Re: PlayStation 5 and the future of DBZ games..

We will probably get XV3 on both the PS4 and PS5. That'll definitely hold the game back. I know its bound to happen, but still. That's the best-case scenario, unfortunately. Xenoverse 2, even with all the downloadable content, feels like a PS3 game released on PS4 to me. It's not any more visually ...

Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

G.I. Joe comes to mind as one of those shows that began telling more mature stories than most 80's cartoons. For example, there's a two-parter where a Joe is supposedly a traitor and another two-parter where Cobra has taken over the world and the Joes there are dead. You can even see skeletons of t...

Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

To be fair, the biggest reason TV was episodic until rather recently is because you couldn't count on people (adults included) having seen every episode or even most of them. It wasn't a reasonable expectation. I guess the reason stories based on manga could be so serialized is because people could...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

perhaps very problematically, we immediately assume it's romantic and sexual when girls/women are involved due to our culture actively demonizing the idea of female friendship (something I've been studying recently, apparently male bonding and male fellowship is "legitimate" in both Western and Eas...

The way I see it, you're doing yourself a disservice with the tone you convey in these posts. Then let me take a crack at it: There is an animation age ghetto in the world. In most places, cartoons are seen as children's entertainment. This started in the 1950s when television boomed and cartoon bu...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

If you want to bring up non-hetero sexuality in the series, do it in a way that makes sense . Piccolo literally can't be LGBT+ because he's part of an alien species that's literally unisexual, reproduces asexually, and is biologically closer to a plant than a human. Perhaps the most obvious thing th...

Re: Close to Toriyama but not Toriyama

A common thing i hear with the prequal Star Wars trilogy, is that it had good concepts but if someone else directed or polished Lucas's script, they would have been better. I feel that is the opposite of Toriyama. I have to respectfully disagree. Toriyama actually suffers from the same problem as G...
