Re: Why do some have a dislike of the climax of the Zamasu/Black arc?

I ain't gonna act like I wasn't on the edge of my seat every week waiting to see what happens. But my personal problem with the Zamazu/Black arc was that I simply felt there were a lot of missed opportunities. I will always stand by the belief that the arc would have been much more interesting if Z...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

And it's worth reiterating that I'm not even saying that Moro isn't derivative (clearly, he is ); I'm just saying that the fandom pushes past the thing he is actually derivative of (Piccolo) to repeatedly assert that he's derivative of something that I don't think stands up very well as a claim whe...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 48 - DBZ movie 3 (CURRENT WEEK)

I'm always going to be a little bias towards this movie. It was my first time watching anything Dragon Ball related in its entirety. I originally saw it during the Toonami broadcast back when it was split up into three parts like the previous two films, though oddly enough they always broadcast this...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I don't know if this is unpopular but I never liked that Videl pretty much lost all sense of personality once she got pregnant. I miss when she was a tomboy. Some people call it being an adult. Certain main character could try it sometimes. Well at least that certain main character's personality ex...

Re: TOEI doesn't understand Akira Toriyama's humour

My big takeaway from the manga's humor vs. the anime is that Toriyama's jokes tend to work better when they're fast paced. This unfortunately wasn't realized as well in the manga since they had to intentionally slow down the pace of the show to keep from catching up to the manga. I do think the more...

Re: What time of the year is considered "peak Dragon Ball" to you?

Summer and Fall. Because me and my best friend would spend all summer looking up facts about the show and learning about all of the material that was censored and then we'd go to school and brag about what we knew! Lol! Who the hell am I kidding, we still do that!

Re: To those who think Goku doesn’t care about Chi Chi, why didn’t he offer her to the old Kaioshin?

Lol, I love showing this scene to people who have never seen the Japanese version of the show or read the manga. It shatters their view of an "innocent" Goku!

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Mysterious Mr Enter isn’t really as insightful as he seems to think he is. His video on Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is pretty bad, and the way he angrily chose to defend that video didn’t exactly paint him in a positive light. Still, I wouldn’t agree with the idea that YouTube reviewer...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Esca becomes the new guardian of Earth, and Dende fuses with Piccolo. I would have predicted this if the spirit fission technique wasn't in Moro's endless arsenal of moves. I actually really like idea of Dende fusing with Piccolo. Though I really like Dende so I'd hate to see him go. But I could de...

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...

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...

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...
