Re: Is Akira Toriyama more hated than loved? And by whom?

You can adore a creator's project and art, and dislike them as a person. With Toriyama there is a lot to love, his creativity, his dedication, his standard of "if I don't want to do it, I won't make those who work for me do it." He has a lot of redeeming qualities in his ethics and practices. Hell, ...

Now, Akira Toriyama sirca mid 1990's, he hates Goku more than anything he can create.

Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

What if Dende succesfully used the Namekian Dragon Balls to make Vegeta immortal before the Namekian Elder died? It would be an extremely awkward situation for Frieza, I imagine. So fun thing there. Is there was a logistician that theorized about this. My community college buddies and I talked abou...

Re: Namekian's Knowing the Fusion Dance

Going along with that train of thought, such Fusions are technically creating the same person. Not really. While Piccolo+Kami was a rejoining of a single being, Piccolo+Nail had Piccolo as the dominant one. In a Dance/Potara Fusion, it's a shared combination that makes a unique person. I thought Pi...

Re: The All-Purpose "What-If " Thread

What if Goku used Super Saiyan God through out all of Super and it never disappeared until the Universe Survival Arc? For this, I'd see the form as a permanent shift. [spoiler]After the ritual is complete, Goku becomes a being of godly ki and power, forever. Beerus and Goku fight, and fight. Eventu...

Re: Why did they stop gravity training?

You've got a couple ways of looking at this. The boring way: As a writing device gravity training had it's day in the sun. Obviously it wasn't completely outmoded by the RoSaT because we see Vegeta and kid Trunks using it up until the Buu arc. However that was it being used as a device to show how s...

A Discussion about Kaioken

I'm not going to sit here and list episode or chapter quotes and all that. This is just something that has been bugging me. Especially since Super now has Goku running around in SSBlue Kaioken, that technique's dangers have lost their touch As the anime continuity sits wrapped in it's bubble, thanks...

Y'all in this thread as disappointed as I the ToP and multi universe wasn't something like this? I mean, Toei has to know this comic is a thing, and they had no problem ripping off Toyotaro's DBAF. That just begs the question as to why not do this? Have the different universes, and even incorporate ...

Re: Do you still hate Dragonball GT?

Seriously bro? GT is still very original compared to Super. 95% of DBS content are ripoffs and forced "easter eggs" so fans can talk how cool and respectful to original story DBS is. They can't come with anything new. Oh, Vegeta even used self-destruction. Is there anything else that was in DB/DBZ/...

Re: What if Dragon Ball characters were sent to prison?

Honestly this would have been a great thing to witness the Pride Troopers doing. Jako complains at HQ about Earth being the worst, and so Dyspo gets sent to do recon. He catches them traveling through time during the Trunks around and returns. The team returns to the main timeline to be arrested. Th...

Re: Between GT and Super, Which do you feel handled Buu better

Buu in super is Toriyama being a dick to the fanbase. Raised expectations, just to fuck you over with a shitty gag. I'm not so sure that was Toriyama. The Super manga didn't have Boo considered as an entrant for the Tournament Of Power. I think that was just Toei. Fair, and so far that is the barom...

Re: Was God Ki Really Necessary?

In the beginning it was wonderful and new, and it made the idea of SS4 vs SSG stupid. Because no matter how strong SS4 was Good Ki was a different realm of power. Spirit Ki vs Living ki was an other worldly nuisance. Golden Freeza ruined that. Turned this new idea into just same old power up. The ma...

Re: Herms' Guide Guide (Collection of Information Awesomeness)

Perhaps it'd be appropriate to update the pronoun guide with Super. I noticed Freeza has started using "Watashi" as his main pronoun and wonder if there are any other changes. Oh man if they release something that explains Freeza is an asexual gender nuetral species, I can't imagine the west handli...

Re: Between GT and Super, Which do you feel handled Buu better

Buu in GT was handled by the than Uub even was. Uub was a more compelling and connected character. His affection for Hercule, his desire to be helpful. Mr Buu was great.

Buu in super is Toriyama being a dick to the fanbase. Raised expectations, just to fuck you over with a shitty gag.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

My heretic belief is that GT is better than Super. The first ark was fantastic and let the viewer have some fun before things got serious. After that GT was filled with amazing ideas, executed poorly. The art varies some but stays at least decent throughout. And Super Saiyan 4, dumb name aside, is b...

Re: Have we have seen Goku back out by fear and shock before?

Short answer, no. Long answer, Goku doesn't get scared of overwhelming power. Any opponent of a strength that has others shaking, he anticipates. It is his nature to be excited by that sort of situation. He's a fighting adrenaline junky. Nobody has ever rattled Goku to the point of backing down. Bro...

Re: Could you see Early DBS Vegito Impressing Beerus?(To not destroy earth)

It wasn't just Super Saiyan God Goku being strong enough to fight Beerus that impressed him. It was bigger than that; the potential Goku showed, the way he adapted to the god power and his acceptance of defeat. Beerus wanted a rival, Goku showed he could be that rival, even if it would take a while...

How influential has Kai's art style and animation been on the fandom? I caught some of Kai and, as old man grump as this might sound, it looked too clean. The characters didn't bleed or get dirty the same way. Their muscles looked like balloon animals, all shiny and puffed. Needless to say, when Bat...
