Re: GT and misogyny

also like...it's really not a death sentence to call someone or something sexist, racist, homophobic, etc. a lot of men are casually sexist, a lot of white people are casually sexist, same with straight people and homophobia, cis people with transphobia, and all that. it's just how a lot of people a...

Re: What are your thoughts on parents trashing on the DB franchise?

i think sangofe was responding to mute_proxy, and not you, given that their post was the last thing quoted. generally people won't quote 2 posts too respond to the earlier one, cus, they can just quote that post.

Re: GT and misogyny

yeah i'm a little late, and while i know basically nothing about nar roo toe, if sakura is a character that everybody in the fandom dislikes, and the author has openly stated he doesn't know how to write women, i'd more then likely guess that she's a victim of poor, Bitches Be Crazy writing, rather ...

Re: GT and misogyny

i don't think that's a very good argument though, especially given what has been said about Pan from the people writing the series. sure most of the characters get the short end of the stick in GT but pan's writing and treatment is still uniquely pretty sexist and bad in it's own way. just because t...

Re: Preferring Team Four Star's parody over the original series baffles me

dbz:a i don't think is a parody, because for a long time, it's not really adding anything new or much creative. not a lot of those abridged series' are.

also lol i did try and edit that post to make it a bit more clear but my phone broke anytime i tried so, sorry abt that lol.

Re: Preferring Team Four Star's parody over the original series baffles me

the dic and cloverway sailor moon dubs are better then the funimation db dubs. at least those are interesting in how American-ized they are, the funi dubs just suck lol. also linda ballantyne was way better then terri hawkes. But it's not a straight up retelling of DBZ. Despite it's name, it's not j...

Re: GT and misogyny

i also think oolong's line about not liking a penis is more just to show how pervey he is about women, rather then oolong thinking gay people are gross or anything. like don't get me wrong it's a pretty lazy joke, and it's very of its time, but i don't think it's especially bad or anything.

Re: things that grind your gears

Considering how popular KPOP had become since 2014 ish you were just ahead of your time liking foreign music. good song writing is a universal language when you think about it... it's funny too cus i do think the dragon ball insert songs helped influence my taste in a lot of music, like i know it's...

Re: In a fighting series, why is it problematic to discuss the power-scaling of the characters?

i think it's part people over correcting from fans who are like, "yeah, i hate character for not being strong, and i won't watch the original dragon ball there's no sense of power scaling". not that the people who think like that are wrong, just that when it's the only type of discussion about the s...

ah yeah, the bardock stuff tripped me up, the YouTube upload date is january 2011, but looking through the DBZ:A thread on here says like fall 2009 or so. my mistake.

Re: The "Team Four Star" actors were blacklisted by Funi and Toei rumor

They sound exactly the same. It can't be a coincidence. But actually, I didn't even realize DBZA Frieza predates Kai Frieza. i mean kuriboh's freeza is more or less just a more masculine version of newstones/young's voice for him, and ayres' voice is kind of the same deal but ehh, there's a lot mor...

20 million views? Ugh. Now I'm sad. But 20 million views isn't 20 million fans. Excuse me as I vomit. 1 chill out, 2 ok still almost every DBZ:A video (and unless i'm counting wrong, every numbered one) has at least 10 million views and most are around the 13 million view mark. it's not like they h...

Re: The "Team Four Star" actors were blacklisted by Funi and Toei rumor

i mean the most popular DBZ:A videos have upwards to 20 million views, that's a lot of people. i do agree that some people kinda overestimate how woven together main stream and internet stuff are, but for something already pretty Nerd-ish, it's a lot closer then you think.

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

i mean feeding pretty heavy transphobic rhetoric is a little dangerous for trans people in the U.K, which is already a very transphobic country. it doesn't directly get them killed obviously (barring some cases), but it can lead to stuff like people being more openly transphobic and going out of the...
