Re: Favourite self-aware Dragon Ball moments?

If we’re talking fourth wall breaking gags mine is when Kuririn beats Bacterian by realizing he didn’t have a nose. Also in the manga when Goten and Trunks kept messing up the fusion dance and Kuririn calls out Toriyama for using that scene as an excuse to keep using the same panel over and over aga...

Re: How do Tullece and Goku look alike?

but it ain’t canon either. The only anime that are canon are the three most recent movies and the half hour special. That’s not an opinion, it’s a fact. Something not being canonical doesn't mean it's "fan fiction". Anyway, if it is a fact, then I'm sure you can provide a source to back up your cla...

Re: How do Tullece and Goku look alike?

Because I assume someone was paid to write them. Yep. That someone is Takao Koyama, an official entity that works/worked for Toei Animation. Not a random dude making movies in his house's garage. You may want to keep that in mind, by the way. It's not just Akira Toriyama who (can) makes official st...

Ultimately all of the movies pre-Battle of Gods are essentially commissioned fan fiction.
As are the two movies post-Battle of Gods.
Nah, those were written by Toriyama himself.

Re: How do Tullece and Goku look alike?

Dragon Ball minus establishes that Goku is who he is not because of a bump on the head, but because that’s just his personality. And thats exactly why I hate Minus so much. I liked minus quite a bit. I do think that it probably came off as a bit jarring for those who weren’t familiar with the manga...

Re: How do Tullece and Goku look alike?

There’s really no reason. I get that he’s supposed to sort of represent how Goku would have likely turned out if he had been like Raditz but even that doesn’t work anymore since Dragon Ball minus establishes that Goku is who he is not because of a bump on the head, but because that’s just his person...

Re: Why didn't anyone make sure Son Gohan kept training?

One thing that got lost in translation is the fact that Gohan never wanted to be a fighter. He wanted to be a scholar. After beating Cell everyone, except Vegeta of course, felt he earned the right to live his life the way he wanted. One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that Toriyama seemed to m...

Re: How would you improve DB going forward?

Less emphasis on Goku and Vegeta in the final battles. They seem to be moving in that direction though. The current battle arc in the manga features pretty much everyone!

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I will always stand by Shunsuke Kikuchi‘s score. He understood the tone of the show and never let the music become a distraction. One of the reasons I never liked the music used in the dub is because it never stops. It’s constant, there’s never any dramatic or even comedic silence.

Re: Which was your favorite training?

I should also give a special shout out to all of the training done at Karin’s Tower since he and Yajirobe are two of my favorite characters. I had to chuckle here given that Yajirobe wouldn't start squatting at his tower until he took Goku to Korin's in the Daimao arc! I just love that Karin never ...

Re: Which was your favorite training?

I’m always torn between Goku and Kuririn training with Muten Roshi and the training leading up to the fight against Vegeta and Nappa. I found Goku and Kuririn’s training to be entertaining as hell and it has a great payoff. But I’m also a little bias towards the Saipan Saga training period because a...

i thought it was funny because of Goku’s dismissive attitude. But personally I enjoyed seeing Yajirobe’s undies more! 8)

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

We’re anime fans! We practically invented piracy as we know it! They can cancel whatever they want. It’s not going to stop someone from watching any of their licensed shows if they really want to see it.

Re: Worst Dub Errors/Mistranslations

I always wonder if Funimation was going off of the HG dub when they dub Tao Pai Pai as General Tao? He is called General Tao in both dubs. Then they eventually renamed him Mercenary Tao at some point which better fit his status as an assassin for hire. Probably but Toriyama gives his characters sil...

Re: Worst Dub Errors/Mistranslations

How about during the Namek arc when Bulma declares that she had know Goku since he was five years old? Where did that number even come from? There’s a whole gag about him telling her he was 14 because he didn’t know what the number 12 was!

Re: How did Gohan get that much weaker between Z and Super?

One thing that's made clear in the manga and to a slightly lesser extent the Japanese version of the anime is that Gohan is not a fighter at heart. Frankly, he's a dork. He doesn't like being forced to study by his mom but he would do it anyway because he likes being a scholar. Given the option he c...

Re: Do you think after this Arc is over that Vegeta will go back to planet Yardrat to resume his training?

I really don't know where they could go after this arc if Goku masters Ultra Instinct. We're getting really close to that 5 years Goku never saw Bulma. That's a really good point. At this point I can't imagine Toriyama doesn't have more control over the story compared to when DB was weekly. He may ...

Re: Does the fact the DBS anime is not returning make you loose intrest in DB?

Nah, no faith lost here. Dragon Ball is my favorite anime series but it's also my favorite manga series and frankly, I prefer the manga. So as long as Toriyama's still writing it, I'll keep reading it regardless of the illustrator!

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Ooooh! I knew I forgot someone! As much as I would love to see Muten Roshi and Yajirobe I wouldn't be surprised if we got Jaco! He's been a favorite of mine since his manga debut. I'd also be cool with seeing Moro given that he's the current main villain.
