Re: World Building

First, you mean imply, not infer. Lol, no I mean to infer. Imply and infer are opposites, like a throw and a catch. To imply is to hint at something, but to infer is to make an educated guess. The speaker does the implying, and the listener does the inferring. It’s funny how the first thing you try...

Re: World Building

as many professional writers believe worldbuilding is essential to a story For example? I know this a late reply, but I had a lot to get done lately. Anyways, you won't find a statement of a writer acknowledging " I high worldbuilding to high esteem" unless you luckily come across an interview or e...

Re: World Building

That wasn't the intention. It's part of it, but I also see a lot of talk about lore and world building (or lack thereof) and I want to know what people are looking for this deep into the story. The reason I made this its own thing is because the previous thread was called "non-thread worthy discuss...

Why DM you? This is all on topic. Because if you were going to make this thread with the intentions of debating me, you might as well just DM me. The whole point of this thread is to go in depth.

Re: World Building

I didn't say DBS's world building was good. I'm saying that there's plenty and it doesn't matter. What matters is story. Whatever story flaws there are aren't due to world building. Ok, and you haven’t explained that at this point just DM me. It is vague. Do you want them to explore those 12 univer...

Re: World Building

I really can't other than exploring those 12 universes, but like I wrote, they're just new locations. What do you want this to lead to? You wrote "new routes for the story to go" but that's vague. They can’t be that vague to where you can’t even get a slim idea of what I’m taking about. Anyways, yo...

Re: World Building

All it is is new locations to fight, but that's mere variations on a theme. And when you say we got little information, that sounds like mere exposition, not character. Are you looking for backstory? What are you looking for? It took over 400 episodes to get to the idea of 12 universes. How long do...

Re: World Building

Battle of Gods introduced us to the concept of 12 universes, but nothing has been done with it aside from a poorly written tournament. We have gotten little information on either Beerus, Whis, or the other Gods of Destruction during Super’s tenor, and the world building we did get were recycled Z st...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

There are whole new universes, there are more gods, there's angels, god ki. All this stuff has happened in Super. How is Super lacking in world building? Almost six years later they have done practically absolutely nothing with, yes, what amazing worldbuilding and lore expansion. It's a significant...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Lord of the Rings slows to a damn crawl for world building and exposition. Much of it adds NOTHING to the story except page count. I guess that's to be expected given Tolkien created the stories of Middle-earth for his Elvish language to exist in instead of the other way around. Good worldbuilding ...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

It's definitely not, DB's is worldbuilding is bare and bland, and that is your opinion and exposition is great as long as it's used right. Besides, worldbuilding isn't just exposition. It is what it needs to be in order to tell a very simple story. More than that and it slows things to a crawl. Exp...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Sadly I don't think that will happen any sooner. Toriyama himself acknowledges that DB is basically just fighting, so if not Toyotaro, he might not really be interesting of introducing things beyond that. I hope not, otherwise, the DB universe would stay extremely boring and flat. Hopefully, the ne...

Re: Characters you wish were completely removed from Super/sequels

He was one who free Buu, becasue he didnt want to hurt Vegeta I'm pretty sure it was Vegeta's fault, after all, he did kill a stadium full of citizens and knocked out Goku once Buu was freed, even though Goku wanted to team up to stop him. pride, and then had nerve to force Goten and Trunks to hand...

Re: Did anyone else found the ToP Android 17 forced and unappealing?

What does it mean to have a character, espically a pasted established character returning back, seem forced onto an audience?! I don't think it matters whether they're established or not, as constantly shoving in one character to make the story flow a certain way doesn't make for a well-written sto...

Re: Did anyone else found the ToP Android 17 forced and unappealing?

Definitely, it's the same reason why I no longer like FT Trunks as much, continually forcing a character onto the audience and into the story especially in scenes they have no place being in is one of fastest ways to get me to dislike them.

Re: Characters you wish were completely removed from Super/sequels

Problem i have with Goku, is that, in my opinion, he became worse, Kid Goku was also naive and Innocent and wanted to fight strong guys, but he was never an asshole who would let go someone so he can fight him again, or free powerful enemy, and have nerve to say that "new generation should handle i...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Strength Discussion Thread

Re: Vic Mignogna

Vic is already guilty of sexual assault, there's videos and images of this stuff that are pretty irrefutable, and him saying "I'll try to be better" is basically admitting it. The question is mostly just how guilty he is. Can you link these videos and images? And him say "I'll try to be better" can...

I'm pretty sure if he gets his magic power he will be, DB is all about linear progression- the next villain being stronger than the last.
