Re: Interesting or funny pictures thread

Well, the sexist connotation is only a very recent thing as far as I'm aware, and I'm not sure it really applies when you use it on a masculine character. The proper term for that scenario is "gary stu". Assuming both are used correctly, the idea of a poorly-designed overwritten hero character that ...

Re: Interesting or funny pictures thread

If this thread has convinced me of anything, it's that there's no good discussion among people who speak more with image macros than language. People who look at out-of-context screenshots duct-taped together and say "this P R O V E S my opinion is OBJECTIVELY CORRECT #libsowned!" in the middle of ...

Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Kai Recut [WIP, Saiyan to Cell COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WIP]

Milkman has stated he's not really interested in dedicating much effort to the DB dub (since it's kind of not great).

I suggest checking out KBABZ's the 1st chapters for something like that.

Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Kai Recut [WIP, Saiyan to Cell COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WIP]

The optical audio used for every (?) home release of the series is really terrible. It's muffled, distorted, low quality. It makes the audio sound worse than the first movies with sound from the late 20s. The broadcast audio, on the other hand, sounds exactly how you'd expect a show from the 1980s t...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

That's so vague. I don't know what you mean by "totally different way." It's a story about martial artists, it should involve martial arts. Well, "martial arts" is pretty fucking vague in this series, isn't it? Shooting lasers from your face isn't a martial art, but you don't seem to have a problem...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

I would argue people place too much emphasis on the bigger stuff and not nearly enough on details and execution. I like new stuff as much as the next guy, but GT had plenty of new stuff, it just wasn't executed well. Look if we're gonna talk about creativity or lack thereof, it should be noted how ...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

Dragon Ball is absolutely out of ideas, but when I read what fans say they want, most of the time I can't help but think "god that sounds so much fucking worse". AF? Multiverse? Are you kidding me? The fact that something as derivative and meaningless as Heroes is allowed to exist and have people ca...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Johnny Depp and Projared were also still both pieces of shit, it just didn't turn out everything they were accused of was true. Jared still sexted fans and cheated on his wife, and I'm pretty sure we have video of Depp physically attacking people on set. The simple fact is, while not every accusatio...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

A lot of people want Broly's character arc to be about controlling his berserker rage. I don't care about that in any instance OTHER than specifically addressing the trauma and abuse Broly was subject to and legitimately working the guy through internal issues. Simply having him transform over and o...

Re: Vic Mignogna

That's sure a lot of people that are against Vic. And ISWV seriously says that most of the industry support him, like JYB for example. I think Johnny Yong Bosch is just being cordial and not wanting to stir the pot. I don't think he was saying JYB actually supported him, just that ISWV think he does.

Re: What is Anime?

In so far as there is even a point to delineating between anime and other cartoons - which, let's be clear, there really isn't - there is no comprehensive or reliable definition other than "cartoons made in Japan". Other factors would disallow stuff that is undeniably anime, and include things that ...

Re: Is being attracted to a Dragon Ball character considered weird?

Okay, between this and the "it's not porn if the genitals are technically covered" thread I feel like maybe this community needs a different outlet for its horniness.
