Re: Is DBZ Sci-Fi?

It's definitely a lot more "science fantasy" than something like Star Trek or one of Isaac Asimov's works, but I'd still put a Sci-Fi tag on it because of the prevalence of fictional technologies.

Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

Everyone dies from Nappa and Vegeta. I'm mainly thinking from the writer's perspective. Toriyama might not even think to kill Gokuu off in the Raditz fight if there wasn't a convenient way to bring him back. I should probably reword it to "how would Toriyama have continued with DB if he didn't make...

Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

What if the Dragon Balls couldn't bring people back to life? Let's say that while writing chapter 111 and for whatever reason, Toriyama decides to make Shenron unable to resurrect Bora. How do you all think the series would go from there?

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

So while I was trying to edit Demon Battle into the version that plays during the Gokuu vs Chi Chi fight, I found that the song actually isn't a loop; there's a noticeably different melody here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ0bbhQHKno&t=43s compared to https://youtu.be/KT0ODz_To-M?t=15 Does any...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Wait, what? Vic Mignogna? A creepy pervert? Wow. I can’t help but be hesitant to beleive this. I’ve met him in person and he just seems like the last person in the world who would do these kinds of things. They always do. That's part of how they get away with it for so long.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Haven't seen anyone selling food, drinks, or bags for pooping into yet. Maybe it's just Buu wanting another obstacle to dissuade potential travelers, but I can see fictional alien money waiting to be made by catering to the people in line that are probably going to die anyways. If you're not getting...

Re: Masako Nozawa Interview - ComicBook.com

Interesting interview. Don't really agree with the Nozowa's interpretation of Goku's characterisation. While Goku is a person who looks out for his family, friends, and has varying degrees of empathy for those aren't in his inner circle, he's more than willing to extremely morally ambiguous and que...

Re: Why Does everyone Take Dragon Ball So Seriously?

Lots of people grew up watching it when they were young, and unlike a lot of childhood cartoons, this franchise keeps on metastasizing. There's also that part where plenty of people have moved on, but the constant vomiting of new material by Toei means that fans have a reason to keep coming back to ...

Re: How do you feel about Freeza being an ally?

I have to agree, but what are the other times the series jumped the shark? The moment some OC donutsteel came from the future. Trunks is like a bad OC, but only if you hate original designs. He's the first Saiyan to have a hair color other than black, and he actually takes fights seriously. I think...

I have to agree, but what are the other times the series jumped the shark? The moment aliens appeared. Maybe it's because I grew up with Z, but aliens never seemed weird to be. Frieza being a good guy on the other hand seems incredibly stupid. I also doubt that we could have gotten something as goo...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

If Goku dies he would have the tools and training to beat Buu. Keeping him alive blocks out ssj3 and fusion. The explosion would have been large enough to envelop everyone including Piccolo. No way Goku is going to get back to Earth even if he knew SSJ3 If everyone dies than Buu doesn't have enough...

The guy was getting criticized pretty heavily a few months (or even a year?) back for his tracing (which wouldn't be an issue if he didn't profit off of it AND he credited each animator he's tracing over), but now everyone was rightfully calling him out before is turning a blind eye to him because ...

Re: Should the retellings have just chopped the movies into episodes?

I'm sure the executives considered the idea and loved it, but that might have actually resulted in good animation and better scripts for arcs following RF.
