Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Honestly while I don't believe this article, if it were true Disney is the studio I would trust to make a live action Dragon Ball movie work. They have a fantastic track record with Star Wars and the MCU. As long as they have the right directors, writers, actors, composer, etc and a good budget for...

Re: DragonBall should do more with politics

I mean the world already gives you some ideas. It is vague and should be more fleshed out, but like the people on the countryside are living with dinosaurs and dragons in the past isolated from cities which have advanced technology and what not. Blooma and her family are capitalist pigs. It is kind ...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

I haven't seen Broli. I have not even finished watching Super since I put it on hold during the ToP cause of how painfully boring it was. I am not following the currently ongoing manga and haven't done so in a long time or watched Heroes or played any of the new games that have come out and honestly...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

One of the greatest directors to ever live directed 4 Hamtaro movies, all of which owned in different ways. They are classic in the same way most of his other works are. Hamtaro is good in general anyways.

Re: Did Dragon Ball Get Lucky?-The Good Faith Version.

Unfortunately Toei still band around the stupid kids excuse which leads to stupid things like censoring BDs and the fact that saying the series is aimed at kids they can get away with lazy writing. I think Toei does the usual company shtick, y'know the whole "we want all our works to be consumed by...

Re: Did Dragon Ball Get Lucky?-The Good Faith Version.

A number of JP fans have said this about the TV anime and I think agree with the point which is one of the primary reasons to DB and many other shows of that time's success. The novelty factor was the excitement of watching it in real time and it was also the time before streaming age and prevalence...

Yeah. It also kind of sadly shows that alt-right brainwashing is as effective as ever. Anime community has always had this problem thanks to the hellhole that is 4chan.

He hit the nail on the head as far as I'm concerned. But, that's because I hate superhero shit and Disney with a burning passion. I'm no snob. I will defend kids media to death and consider them to be superior than most adult media anyways, especially in regards to anime, but cape shit and the large...

Final figures are out. It crawled and reached the ¥4bn mark in Japan. A ~7% increase over the previous movie. A respectable finish.

Lmao "western issues". LGBT+ folks exist everywhere in every part of the world. Diversity and inclusivity in media is a discussion that also happens in every part of the world including Japan.

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

Hunter X Hunter has a canonical gay character, a trans character and non-binary characters who are all great. Killua is also gay af and its as overt as it gets, but I will still wait until Togashi makes it canon so that I don't have to deal with "muh canon" fans. None of that takes away from the fig...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

I doubt Toriyama has the ability to do that, but DB isn't Toriyama's alone anymore. Kale is very much a creation from the anime staff and she gay af. Of course, they could have done a better job with her, but DBS was a production mess so I'm happy with what we got. Hopefully, she gets more focus in ...

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

Baggie can explain in detail, but most DB merch is aimed at 15+ age group. Bandai even acknowledged that the core fan layer are adults. Given, none of its merch ever rank in top 10 for kids, it is pretty obvious where its fanbase lies. I'm sure kids watch DB, the kids ratings it got were decent(alth...

Last year's Precure series composer(head writer) and the series directors took all those aspects seriously and presented it in the most sincere way possible which is way better than any Western show I have ever seen. Precure always had this going for it since its inception. The father of the franchi...

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

Yeah, but if memory serves, One Piece was moved in the early- mid 2000's precisely to save ratings, because it wasn't doing that well in that time slot anymore. DB's ratings were usually smaller than One Piece's. That was Sunday evenings, not Sat evenings. I find that speculation pretty weird cause...

Well, the DB community might just be rotten at its core. Disgusting. Hope the other cons have some fucking sense and morals left and don't invite him back.

Re: Is Dragon Ball cynical at its core?

It is. Super amplified it with the Tournament of Power being the most blatant example, but it was there for the most part in the original run as well. Tavarano made a great point about it somewhere in this forum and while I feel some of it is exaggerated, I mostly agree with that take. I guess that ...

Very interesting video. Thanks for posting. I mostly agree. All the black characters in the series are stereotyped to hell which is pretty terrible, but its pretty to understand why that is. It was even mentioned in the video. Western media's growing popularity(most of which were super fucking racis...
