Re: GT and misogyny

I think it would be more justifiable if we hadn't seen literal seven year-old super saiyans in the Buu arc who could hold their own perfectly well.

Re: Color Correcting the Dragon Box - 3 Part Spectacular

Pretty sure the whole problem is that the colors are off in different ways depending on the scene and episode.

Re: Black history month: Who is your favorite black DB character?

I don't really have much of an opinion on this because I think DB has too few black people in it to really form one, but on a related note I'll recommend pspiq's Black People of Dragon Ball threads, examining how what representation there is happens to be presented.

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

Studying art to study a person's mind has academic value but the idea that one can enjoy art without taking into consideration the person who made it is to basically assume that all art comes out of thin air. Art does not come out of thing air, it is the labor of emotional turmoil and jubilation fo...

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

]I think I see what you're getting at, but given that it's a DB forum and both have problematic writing, I was wondering why one has issues that are damning and the other you can look past to the point where you join a forum. Being on a forum for things doesn't preclude you from thinking they have ...

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

maybe we should steer clear if you think I’m not engaging with what you said and compared my statement to Shapiro. I guess what I’m asking is what is so much worse about her work than his that we can look past his faults? You’ve said her bad ideas are essentially baked into the core of her story wh...

I'm not ignoring them. I have a different interpretation of them (good lord), Your "interpretation" has mostly been finding ways to direct the conversation away from engaging with anything I've said. I would call that ignoring them. Here, see if you do it again in this next one: while I think it's ...

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

That's an awful lot of compartmentalizing with Dragon Ball because that misogyny is littered throughout and the story doesn't seem to have much of a problem with genocide. It does until it doesn't because a character became so popular the author decided to keep him around and doesn't even attempt t...

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

I don't think it's that big a leap in logic to say that a story that for example, tries to justify a slave race, is not a well-told story because the premise you have to accept, that slavery of a fictional race is justifiable, is so far beyond anyone's suspension of disbelief that it fails to connec...

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

I think Julie was commenting on the quality of the work itself, not merely the politics. There are plenty of works of art that are good but have problematic ideology. Pretty sure she was talking about both, but I don't think her reasoning for saying it's bad is necessarily less-valid than anyone el...

I don't think there is anything of value to learn from Rowling . Bare in mind I have no read her works but I hear they are really awful (to say nothing of being full of really nasty bigotry and shit). There are plenty of other, not-horrible creators to take examples from. So you have no way to form...

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

The first few Harry Potter books are decent enough children's fantasy fare. The last couple range from really boring to Christian propaganda, complete with antisemitic goblin caricatures (well, okay, those are there from the start, but it's definitely worse in the last one). The first Fantastic Beas...

Could someone help me, please?

I'm sure he's putting the work in where he can. Fan projects are usually developed in the creators' own free time, and this one spans several hundred episodes' worth of content in two languages, with pretty meticulous attention to detail in accordance both with the manga and other versions of the du...

Re: Broadcast audio - similar case to Star Wars Despecialized Edition?

Weird thread but okay. I would say it's pretty significantly different. The difference is that Lucasfilm had the original cuts of the Star Wars trilogy, and probably still does. They released only the special editions out of a conceited desire to "improve" a trilogy fraught with production issues, b...

I don't think it's about the actual arcade machines, I think "the arcade version is better" is what needs to be true in order to keep saying Heroes has the "real" meat of modern DB "story"telling over anything Toriyama writes, after the Heroes anime proved to be shallow as all hell.

Re: Why do so many people dislike GT Pan?

The show had 64 episodes, the same amount as Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Obviously not wholly comparable, but any show can create significant character growth in huge casts with a length like that, it's just about who you hire, how you work, and what you want.
