Why I'm not fond of Vegeta's original anime color scheme

Because it reminds me of stuff like this: https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/000/743/813/8b2.jpg Tons of cheap Chinese knockoff toys were often also miscolored, which makes it hard for me to escape the association :D I'm getting the same impression from many Toei-original villains, especia...

I really don't get what these guys mean to everyone. I may not know them or this fandom very well but I've seen similar situations and foots were eventually put down. I understand that communities value and defend their pillars but I'm starting to think that people are giving a few of them too much...

Ajay and Yonko are fine people as far as I know I don't like geekdom for his right wing anti sjw anti feminist jokes ripped straight out of 2013. that shit is most prevalent on his world of geekdom channel To be perfectly fair, it doesn't take a right winger to bash feminists and sjws, but I digres...

DB -> DBZ -> DBS (choose manga or anime) -> Broly -> DBS manga Moro saga thus far.
It's really as simple as this IMO

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

This is what confuses me about Geekdom being reliable. He's a speculation youtuber, right? Guessing what's going to happen makes most of his channel. This might be the contrarian in me crying out but knowing which characters are going to appear or guessing what happens at the end of the arc shouldn...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Oh well, gotta say this whole thing is unfolding in an unexpected direction. At first I'd be quick to believe his accusers, but right now I'm not really so sure myself. More and more people seem to be flocking to his side right now too.

Re: What's canon?

Oh but there is a canon, only it isn't as cut out and dried as it was before Super came. Then it was just the manga, now you have various parallel interpretations of the same story. But there definitely is a main continuity which the Toei theatrical movies and GT for instance are not part of.

Re: Would you guys like a “canon” Shadow Dragon Arc?

It had to do with the amount of times they were used, not shenron's strength. It may not be perfect but it was better than bringing Broly back. Still bad. Shenron's power of granting wishes couldn't exceed his creator's power, which as we know, was rather miserable. It's really hard to swallow that...

Re: Would you guys like a “canon” Shadow Dragon Arc?

This concept never made sense in the first place, considering that Earth's Dragonballs were weak and limited, Shenron himself was killed by King Piccolo etc. I have no idea how they could justify making these dragons a relevant threat by this point. The only way they could would be if it were the Su...

Re: I'm done with the dub

I don't mind Super's dub all that much, though I stopped following it after the Zamasu arc. Sometimes I'm just curious how they'll sord certain lines. And those "atrocious script changes"? Nothing compared to those from their first dub of Z.

Probably somewhat above SSj God Goku, but still way below his full SSjB power.

Re: Pure Boo > Evil Boo makes more narrative sense?

I am sorry but at this point you deny to even believe what's mentioned in manga, when 3 of 4 expressions in manga were gag expression. Are you for real now? Just read those panels to check for myself and I see nothing out of character for Goku. If anything, Goku's lighteartedness may be played up a...

Re: Pure Boo > Evil Boo makes more narrative sense?

I've always found arguments based on undermining the sincerity of Goku's statements a bit of a desperate attempt to find support for a pre-conceived claim, rather than looking at the matter objectively with no preference of outcome. If you do that, you can only arrive at the conclusion that Super Bu...

Re: Pure Boo > Evil Boo makes more narrative sense?

Assuming that the South Kaioshin powered up Kid Buu is only natural, because Buff Buu was demonstrated to be even stronger than Super Buu. Then again, Kid Buu was then powered down again so he can be within Goku's reach. This much has been established pretty well.

Re: Pure Boo > Evil Boo makes more narrative sense?

In addition to all that's already been said in this thread (which seals the deal as it is), there is a factual, but rarely explored angle of Super Buu being as strong as he was because he was a fusion entity, made up of two fused Buus. http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=40835&p=1441...

Re: Zamasu's level of power

this was explicitly stated Where? Sure, Goku might have got a base form upgrade after the ritual, but nothing SHOWN suggests he kept that power... not STABLY. We are shown situations both where he's extremely powerful in Base and others where he's normally powerful, same with Vegeta. Sometime Goku ...

The problem with saying that base Goku and Vegeta are >>> all of Z in base is that they're using regular SSj forms constnatly, while RoF established that the only multiplier they can put on that OP state makes their hair blue. Blue should be 50x Saiyan Beyond God if you like, not regular SSj. That w...
