Non-arguments and manipulation.

Was planning on typing this tomorrow, but I can't sleep, so what the hell! I'd like to make a point that I think the entire community should benefit from. No one here seems to know how to make a case for anything , and it makes conversation quite dull. I'll skim over examples of this in yesterday's ...

Re: Interview with Norihito Sumitomo (2017)

Terrible interview. Bad presentation, little interesting information, surprisingly good English. One of us should try to organize an interview with more interesting questions. Good idea, but I would like to know how organizing an interview would be possible. How would you go about organizing it? He...

Re: LGBT in DragonBall

Acknowledging LGBT prejudice in the Middle East would mean acknowledging that there are other societies out there more fucked up than ours and perhaps the issues we face over here are essentially nonproblems. "As long as we're not dead last when it comes to respecting human dignity, then we're doin...

Re: LGBT in DragonBall

I realize of course that this is a privately owned public forum and that those in charge have the authority to do pretty much whatever they please. However I must say if nothing else I commend you on the principle that you feel strongly or bravely enough to state your beliefs and point of view even...

Akira Toriyama is a professional. He didn't get to where he is for no reason.

Re: Do you consider the Boo saga better than Super in general terms?

Eh I think it mainly comes down to the usual budget and padding, very little of the filler and animation choices in Z was due to an artistic vision. If that were the case, they wouldn't have needed professional writers or animators, they could've BS'd their way through without doing anything notewo...

Re: LGBT in DragonBall

Stereotypes of gay men all being pedophiles and rapists is bullshit propaganda created to further marginalize and spread hatred, which continues to lead to outright murder to this very day. How original! How virtuous! :roll: Why don't you actually make a case what you're claiming, instead of just s...

Re: Do you consider the Boo saga better than Super in general terms?

Oh wow, I don't mean to keep plugging my fan edit but. That's still great art and choreography, but now it just looks slow and stiff to me. https://vid.me/5pVw4 Check out how it flows here, just my opinion though. I've become a little spoiled on Super's smooth money shots. It's supposed to be very ...

ABED wrote:Even a short arc can be slow, but I do like that Super looks to be keeping arcs smaller than DBZ's. The Buu arc was around 90 episodes which doesn't work in its favor.
By the way, the first home release of Super is out now, isn't it? Have you started watching yet?

Re: Do you consider the Boo saga better than Super in general terms?

From a narrative standpoint, I'd say it's worse than the first 3 arcs in the anime, but better than the FT Arc and ToP recruitment. At the time, it was easily the weakest portion of Toriyama's career up to that point. As for the other attributes in the manga version: The art always hovered between s...

Re: LGBT in DragonBall

Right, doesn't mean it's acceptable. You also claimed that wanting representation was part of a 'retarded victim mentality'. Nope. Another blatant case of hearing what you want to hear. Here's the quote: I think the idea that we should insert alternative identities sexualities into everything is ri...

Oh, please. I knew I liked boys from a very young age. It's nothing to do with abuse. "As a general rule." Do you know what that means? "More often than not." "In most cases." Need I go on?

Re: LGBT in DragonBall

Children don't care about sexuality because that's not something they'll experience until they hit puberty. As a general rule, this is true. The only time children tend to experience sexual identity pre-puberty is as a result of abuse, even in cases where the child doesn't remember said abuse. Howe...
