Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

At the risk of going slightly offtopic (but ontopic still) for a moment, Does anybody have a list of sources where I can read up on the shooting process for older shows and things like what kind of film they were shot on? Like how I notice shows from 95 onward started going from bright and colorful ...

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

TL;DR for anybody not wanting to read that. The fact that we have "Fans of the old series and "Z portion" is proof positive that Dragon Ball neglects half of it's identity to a self-destructive degree. If you want dragon ball to achieve some form of harmony in the fanbase, it needs to consolidate it...

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

I'm gonna cut the quote mining here. 1: Freeza has just said to himself that their "bottomless" potential will never surpass his. So then he doesnt believe it's bottomless. And are we to believe the unreliable narrator known as Vegeta in this arc - the guy who spends most of his screen-time blowing ...

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

You are in serious denial about this franchise. 1. Even before Beerus was introduced, it was laid out in the original manga itself that Freeza's fear of the Saiyan race's potential is what drove his fear of the them, suggesting that they were intended to be seen as inherently special. No other race...

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

\ Why are the humans so damn far behind? And why are they behind a race of people who went extinct because they were so weak as a collective? it's a contradiction. It seems like the saiyans are so special, not because they actually were, but because GOKU happens to be a Saiyan. The Saiyans were kil...

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

At this point they really have nothing interesting to do with Vegeta, and just keep him as Goku’s sidekick because he’s popular. For some reason Toriyama decided to backpedal on Vegeta’s characterisation to keep him as Goku’s eternal rival whose main goal in life is to catch up to him, even though ...

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

Vegeta developing by lowering his pride and finally admitting Goku being number one does not mean he would stop trying to surpass him. Apparently, many idiots in the fandom think Vegeta should have turned into yet another modest background character with no ambitions of any kind after the Buu arc :...

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

The last words in the original manga are literally "I will surpass you one day, Kakarot." If you think after the Buu arc Vegeta has no desire to surpass Goku, then you misinterpreted his development. Actually, that depends on whether I like how Toriyama handled his own ending too. Which (gasp) I re...

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

Anything that canonizes DB Minus has scores redacted. The Obvious pandering being done by the shareholders to Broly fans over new creativity kicks the score down. This film outside of it's STUNNING visuals really has a lot going against it. Am I the only person who fears that people legitimizing thi...

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

Dragon Ball has always been ‘McDonalds of anime‘ even at its peak. Especially if you compare Z to Dragon Ball. Ok, so we went from McDonalds to TV dinners. Happy with that metaphor? Not really since I like Super a lot more than Z. Z storytelling after Namek wasn’t good since it depended too much on...

So let me explain why this is such a stupid idea. Dragon Ball has a massive ocean of ideas it can execute to stay fresh even within it's own damn lore. Magic exists right? Why do villains have to train their way to match goku? why cant they just create magical forces that Goku will have to puzzle hi...

I like the second goku design better, his ups surpasses his downs, I have a complaint in the neck area though, it's too thin to be honest, it doesn't keep consistency with the other muscles in a guy that works out But it makes him look younger, and more spryly, something I'm very fond of for Goku w...

Re: Dragon Ball Movie 20 - Animation Hub

On a side note: I'm slightly worried that we might not get exactly an all star staff list of animators, since there is a PreCure movie in production, and animators like Watanabe may be too heavily involved in the production of that movie to contribute anything substantial to the new DB film. I thin...
