Re: Vegeta's lack of reaction to Cooler in Movie 6

Vegeta feels like an afterthought tbh. Like he wasn’t even supposed to be in the movie and then there was some studio demand to throw him in there.

Re: How would you remake and rewrite the Majin Buu Saga?

Keep Fat Buu as the only version of Majin Buu. None of the other forms were as interesting or as fun and just felt like the same big bad we been getting since Daimao. (Buuhan is pretty dope looking design was though the turtle hermit school gi makes anyone look good) make everyone happy by having al...

Re: How terrible was Vegeta pre-Android Saga

It depends on how much blame you put on Freeza for turning Vegeta into the monster that he became. Weighing how much credence you give "death bed" confessionsww, Vegeta openly weeping and confessing his trauma on Namek to Goku was a fairly impactful moment. Freeza having any impact on Vegeta’s char...

Re: Super Saiyan Blue appreciation thread

I think that a whole ass ritual was needed for Super Saiyan God and then they were like “Here’s the Super Saiyan version of that! That doesn’t require a ritual and Vegeta has reached it somehow too!” rubbed me the wrong way. And then it became the default level of Super Saiyan for Super. That and sa...

Re: Are there other shonen you acknowledge as better written than Dragon Ball?

Battle Shounen is absolutely a genre just like Supernatural, Horror and Isekai and sports are all very broad genres. I don’t not what Isekai is but Supernatural, horror, and Sports all exist outside of manga/anime. Battle Shonen is just a term used by shonen anime fans who at least have the awarene...

Re: Are there other shonen you acknowledge as better written than Dragon Ball?

I think peoples' tendency to group Dragon Ball and its direct imitators into the same "Battle Shonen" genre is off the mark not for the grouping, but for the label they put on it. Not to deny the influence of ninja, pirate, superhero, etc media on these respective "successors", but there seems to b...

Re: Android 18 is the most popular female character in Japan according to this recent popularity poll

I don’t know why anyone is surprised 18 would be more popular than Bulma. Toriyama and Toei tried their damnedest to make Bulma as unlikable as possible all the way until she finally cools down in the Android arc...where she barely does anything outside by that point outside of being the techie when...

Re: Sharing your Dragon Ball Fandom with your kids!

Why do you think so? Are you afraid they'll generalize and start doing that when they get older? That's much less likely than them adapting the violence. My daughter just finds it weird and funny. She started using the violence when she got too exposed by it. I I meant the other way around. It's im...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 66 - DBZ 131-135 (CURRENT WEEK)

Looking at it again 19 did not have a brain under the glass dome. Still that definitely looks like blood pouring out of his wrist. Which I guess looked more ambiguous in black and white manga. Anyways Hachan, 17, 18, and 20 were all confirmed to have been once human. And 17’s surprise at 16 being fu...

Re: More Kids Watch Dragon Ball on Adult Swim Than Adults do.

I am sorry for asking this uninspired question, but how the hell did any of you manage to watch adult swim that late in the night? Did you have permission or did you keep the TV volume really low? How did your sleep schedules get affected? It was mostly weekends I wasn’t exactly watching Adult Swim...

-The note about DBZ movie 7 is something most of the other movies have, given for the most part they are set alternatively as compared to the series proper (i.e. characters appearing when they shouldn't.etc) and the majority don't line up relevant to the anime's timeline with exception of a few.

. Unless i'm mistaken the Bojack movie is one of the few that doesn't have too many contradictions and is clearly set after the Cell Games and Goku's sacrifice. - Movie 13 pretty much fits perfectly between episode 288 and 289.

It’s been a while but in the manga at least wasn’t she just more relieved that her son would grow up to be good looking? I feel like I recall her saying baby Trunks was a mean looking baby or something. Less “I’d bang my son if I could” and more “whew my son won’t grow up to be ugly” In the ViZ tra...

Re: How do you own the series? (2021 Edition)

It's also worth noting the Dragon Boxes are out of print, so buying them isn't legally supporting the series anyway, but rather supporting a private business owner who in most cases will rip you off. I always encourage everyone to buy whatever release they can, and as of now the 30th Blu-Rays are a...
