Re: Is the Dragon Ball fandom hypocritical about the "Yamcha meme"?

I know these were filler, but it was nice of Toei to give Yamcha a win when he fought Recoome on King Kai's Planet. There is also that Gravity Room scene. I know what he did was stupid, trying to prove himself, but the fact he was still able to move at all at 300G is still impressive.

Re: Is the Dragon Ball fandom hypocritical about the "Yamcha meme"?

Yamcha was always meant to be the butt monkey of the group, but at least back then, he was still a pretty great fighter and he probably still is, if given the opportunity. The Wolf Fang Fist is probably one of the most iconic physical moves in Dragon Ball, and he created the Spirit Ball by himself w...

Re: Things Super or a new series NEEDS to do

1. Explore the other universes. We have 11 more out there and we know little to nothing about them. I'm not expecting gigantic world building, but give us enough to get an idea of what each universe is like. Although I guess there needs to be a reason to go to the other universes. Maybe someone coul...

Re: Fan Works Explosion

James Raiz (a.k.a - TheBoxOfficeArtist) , who has worked with Marvel, DC, etc. attempted to draw Super Saiyan 3 Goku in an more Western style. It wasn't terrible, but the body type was just wrong. So he just attempted another picture after the response from the first video. Besides the eye color, I...

Re: Why do westerners like Bulma x Vegeta so much?

I'm alright with the pairing. I'm just not a fan of how it made Yamcha look like the bad guy, so to speak.

Re: Super Episode 126 (4 February 2018)

While there's no doubt the writer of this episode is probably one of the weakest of the bunch, I have of wonder why Toei would let someone who has never wrote Dragon Ball before write such a major episode ('sides 119), especially near the end of both the arc and series. Dunno how the reception is in...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

After watching Geekdom's video (and I think MasakoX talked about it too in one video), I'm OK with the whole "tingly back" thing. Even before said videos, I kind of accepted it since I figured that the U6 Saiyans evolved differently, so their method might be a little different. Still a weird thing, ...

Re: Do you agree that it's silly to hate something because it has a cringy and obsessive fandom?

Pretty much. I like Dragon Ball, Sonic, Undertale, and Steven Universe to name a few. If people don't like those franchises, that's fine. Every huge fanbase has their fair share of people that take it a bit too far, some more than others. In this day and age with social media where just about everyo...

Wish I knew about this sooner, but totally forgot to check the website.

December's theme is Dragon Ball. It's g...

Episodes you'd like to see involving characters from other universes.

So let's say that the erased universes are brought back thanks to the Super Dragon Balls. There's a lot of potential for episodes, be it "slice-of-life," mini arcs, major arcs, etc. They pretty much hinted at the possibility of at least Vegeta going to Universe 6's Planet Sadala, so hopefully we'll ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

(Slight disclaimer: haven't seen this week's episode, but read up about it) It does seem like Universe 4 is one we barely got to know about compared to almost all the other universes. Besides Universes 6 and 10, who had major involvement in previous arcs, we got a bit of exposure to the other univer...

Re: Am I the only one who thinls the Yamcha meme is in poor taste?

I honestly never understood the whole death pose thing being all that funny. I always feel rather bad for Yamcha. It's fine he's a bit of a butt monkey, but it seems like Toriyama and Funimation really loves mentioning it time and time again. I remember reading up that Funimation alters Yamcha's lin...
