Re: How did you come to know about dragonball?

I first saw DBZ in 1997 on some channel, I don't remember which one since we lived in Guam at the time. I'm pretty sure it was the Ocean dub since it was in English and it was the episode with Vegeta & Monster Zarbon's 2nd fight. I didn't get to see much else of it though since my older brother swit...

Re: How relevant is Barry Watson in any sense

What's the most bizarre dubline? Bardock being a "brilliant scientist"? Human arms growing back after being violently broken off? People going to the 'next dimension' instead of dying? Freeza caressing his balls? "Cat loves food! Yeah, yeah, yeah!"? ... Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! I can win! I feel great! I...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Gas' power as it stands is a mystery. Elec actually said that Gas might've won against post-wish Granolah had they fought, a statement that ought to be bullshit given that Granolah wished to be the strongest fighter in the universe as well as the possibility that Elec may not be able to sense Ki. Ho...

Re: "Anti-Ki", Should It Be Attempted?

I was thinking that too. But also, in the anime I remember when Vegeta first tried to sense Whis' ki, he said that he had some kind of 'null energy ki' or something like that which he couldn't sense. It could have just been that he couldn't sense god ki at that point, though. It may be possible tha...

Re: "Anti-Ki", Should It Be Attempted?

Couldn't hakai energy be it? Before Vegeta overpowered Toppo, the anime was going that way. There was no counter to it. Should be noted that Freeza and Goku sort of withstood a small amount of hakai energy, so maybe it wasn't Vegeta's "fault". It's not an opposite or polar variant of Ki, just a pot...

"Anti-Ki", Should It Be Attempted?

Would the concept of a variant of Ki that cancels out the power & efficacy of traditional Ki/God Ki be implemented onto a future villain/opponent? Maybe some kind of monster/force that somehow has come back from being destroyed/erased?

Re: How do you guys suppose the Saiyans and the entire Freeza Force scouted worlds before conquering them?

IIRC, a filler scene depicted Freeza's spaceship with the capability of scanning a planet's population, it's environment, and any natural resources that it has so that might answer the question. Freeza's base world could also detect power levels from at least billions of miles away which means they ...

Reposting from the Strenght Forum since I think its interesting and has to do with the Manga. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere but I think its something worth mentioning.

Re: At its core, why is Dragon Ball so loved?

I love me some power level discussions and DB trivia but I fall asleep the moment in turns into "why my political opinions are better than your political opinions and why you have to acknowledge that". I get so bored easily. :yawn:

Re: Thoughts on the new Super movie title?

Now that I say it out loud, it doesn't sound quite as bad but it's still unusual. I'd rather they'd have just gone with simply "Hero" or "Guardians".

Re: Welp, I’m done, never thought I’d say it, but I’m done.

But it wasn't the reason why the conflict was extended. The reason it was extended was because Moro absorbs Merus' powers. All he accomplishes with the senzu is breaking his own arm and being in the same situation he was just in. The manner in which Goku fucked up was revealing that Merus was his m...

Re: Welp, I’m done, never thought I’d say it, but I’m done.

I will never understand the collective backlash after Goku gave Moro a senzu. Especially with the fact that it was inconsequential and in character with his past actions. The Moro arc has a lot of issues but I can't rationalise anyone pointing to that scene as some sort of stand out jumped the shar...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

I'd like to know what exactly Freeza has been up to since the Broly film. Perhaps similarly to 17, Freeza has developed a method of improving in power by doing simple, daily tasks in ruling the empire. Hell, he could have even developed a new form just by concentrating hard enough. Freeza doesn't ne...

Re: What makes Vegeta so sure there are no other Saiyans left?

The Saiyan babies simply may have had a low survival rate on the worlds that they were sent to. Some filler scenes from the anime depicted at least a few worlds with technology capable of holding off even a group of adult Saiyans so in a number of instances, the babies wouldn't have stood a chance a...

Re: Why did Tenshinhan never settle down and get married and raise a family?

It'd be great if Tenshinhan had an illegitimate son with Launch that is three eyed and has a dual-nature like his mother. The boy could be a bookworm in his "nice" state and meekly refrains from intense physical activity but once he sneezes, he turns into his "bad" state and is a wild child with a l...

Re: Welp, I’m done, never thought I’d say it, but I’m done.

Some see Super as the same thing as the Star Wars sequels, or modern Simpsons, or Legend of Korra, or modern Star Trek, or any series that tried to continue an old popular series. At least DB still has it's creator giving creative input and preventing it from deviating towards full-blown mediocrity...

Is anyone ever truly done with DB? Me personally, i can never get enough of it even if the quality might be on the decline or the story attempts to journey into newfound territory. At least it's not boring like the phucking Star Wars sequels. I haven't even seen Rise of Skywalker but I honestly don'...

Re: Is There Any Noticeable Difference Between A Power Level of 1,000,000 and 1,000,001?

The problem is that its 1/1,000,000 of their powerlevel, not their actual power. Again, the difference would be far more noticable. It wouldn't be a massive difference but the one with 1,000,001 would probrably win in a fight. If they fight with an equal amount of vigor, it's going to be the same p...
