Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

we getting a decent Saiyan backstory ? Broly with actual personality this time ? Is it? You don't know that. I don't know that. No one knows that. Outstading animation? I admit that the animation looked good. :) You might not even know what you want from this series anymore You know, you're probabl...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

So... this is what they came up with for a new Dragon Ball movie? Ha...Ha...Ha. At this point, I'm not even mad or disappointed anymore. Greed and indifference to the quality of the story is now something to be expected in the Dragon Ball franchise. I'll probably still see this movie in theaters. Wh...

Re: Super Episode 131 (25 March 2018)

Can't believe I'm back on the forum posting here. Anyway, I currently saw the last half of the episode and I thought it was okay. Everything about it was predictable, except for Goku getting knocked out, #17 asking for the wish and Frieza being brought back to life. I'd rather not get negative about...

Re: New movie announced for December 2018!

I find the idea of exploring Saiyan Origins to be unnecessary, even for Universe 6's Saiyans.

It would have been much better for them to do a movie exploring Sadal and their inhabitants after the Tournament of Power, assuming they are brought back to life.

I've posted this before, but it's worth seeing it again. This can work as a live-action Cell.

Re: The original Super Saiyan revealed!

This is like the Midi-chlorian theory of Dragon Ball. You're continuing to disappoint me more and more, Toriyama. :yawn: You're probably just conditioned to hate midichlorians. They're an actual good plot point that explains a lot of inconsistencies with the original trilogy. Just like S-cells expl...

Re: If you had the chance to change something in dragon ball what would it be?

Never make GT and Super Either make time travel more logical or get rid of it all together. Explore the concept of the Makaio/Makaioshin and the Demon Realm. Keep the idea of there being a God(s) of Destruction and other universes, but save the Tournament of Power as a type of final arc. Alternate i...

Re: What would Cell have been like without Freeza's cells?

I've always wondered that same question, since I assumed that the least altered timelines in Dragon Ball may have given Dr. Gero reasonable time to collect cells from Frieza during his fight when Goku returned from space. When Trunks shows up, he quickly kills him and incinerates his body. How could...

Re: What are the Copyright laws for DragonBall?

I have a somewhat-related question to this. I remember watching a video on the nature of Copyright Laws in the United States in relation to famous IPs/franchises. Since there will be a time when Toriyama and everyone else originally involved with Dragon Ball will be gone, what do Japanese Copyright ...

Re: Nostalgia Critc's Dragonball Evolution Review

It's weird that he's going to review it personally(?), since I heard that he doesn't like Dragon Ball.

I think his friends did an earlier review of DBE.

Anyway, I can't wait to see if this will be another movie that breaks him. :D

Re: What was your first experience with the Japanese version and what was your first impression?

When I first played Super Butouden 2 on SNES, I heard the voices in Japanese. My first impression was wondering why Goku (and maybe Gohan) sounded like an old cat-lady every time he yelled. :/ I liked how Cell's Japanese voice sounded, though. Since I tend to watch the Japanese version of the show s...
