Re: GT and misogyny

You're absolutely right! I'm sure Toriyama thought about hating trans people instead of making a joke about the fact that Goku has never ever seen a women and doesn't grasp the concept that women don't have a penis like he does, akin to the his style of dirty humor he's used before. I'm so glad he'...

It may not but what's wrong with Oolong not liking penises?
It's less that and more the joke of "THAT GIRL HAS A PENIS, IT'S A TRAP!!", which is very problematic.

Re: GT and misogyny

Huh? while I personally don't think there's anything wrong with Capitalism, Why push such a negative narrative on a series you claim to love so much? Dude, look at what website you're on right now. EVERYONE here has some sort of issue they have with the franchise in its homeland in some way. If you...

Bardock Special referencing the Tale of the Bamboo Cutter?

So when ViZ sorted out the issue with my DBZ manga box-set, in addition to providing the right booklet, I was given some volumes of other manga as a thank-you for being so nice to work with. And that's how I got into Fly Me to the Moon. One of the recurring things in that manga is referencing the Ta...

Re: GT and misogyny

I feel in regards to GT Pan fell victim to practically everyone else by the time Baby showed up, which is that Goku and Vegeta are really the only relevant characters. Trunks, Goten and Gohan go to waste, and so does Uub, the MALE EoZ prodigy. But it is also true that the Black Star storyline didn't...

Re: What would you like to see when the anime returns

Does the Super anime really need to learn how to become successful, when its final episodes were literally live-streamed in public city centres? I think the Toei producers are more than proficient in that field. You're confusing hype with quality. Super caught a lot of people's eyes, but The Phanto...

Re: Curse of the blood rubbie rare dub

...Blood Rubbie? Yeah. On the tape, it says "Curse of the Blood Rubie". Not sure exactly why, but it's supposed to be a sort of prototype/demonstration tape, this one given to investors, going by the product description. But the double b spelling error in the thread title makes it look a lot more l...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 59 - DBZ 100-104 (CURRENT WEEK)

I love these threads. I love Robo and KBABZ and they can always be found in them. I really miss Robo in particular. Aww. I'm not in other threads because I find 'em kinda trashy, sometimes necrobumps, and are otherwise topics I have no interest spending energy to participate in, especially when the...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 59 - DBZ 100-104 (CURRENT WEEK)

I legitimately got into fights with my friends about this, since I was less familiar with the rules during my first watch of the show. It really seems like Toei wanted the audience to think he was actually dead. There's a very Christ-like quality to the way he dies and then re-appears I agree. It's...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 59 - DBZ 100-104 (CURRENT WEEK)

I remember first seeing Frieza get himself killed when it first aired here in New Zealand and I thought it was rather anti-climactic (as mentioned in the manga, which titles it "An Empty Conclusion"), but now as an adult, it's my favourite villain death because it's 100% character-driven. It's certa...

Re: Rankings and thoughts of the post-Kikuchi composers?

. The other issue is that about halfway into Namek, there just isn't any new music being put in, and while this was something Kikuchi did, he at least had the entirety of Dragon Ball plus the various movies up to that point to draw from. On an unrelated note, i actually loved that Kikuchi used old ...

Rankings and thoughts of the post-Kikuchi composers?

I was having this discussion with Robo, and I thought it'd be a cool one to do. When Dragon Ball Z ended back in 1996, Kikuchi opted not to continue for GT. So began a series of composers coming in with their own Dragon Ball scores, and this continued through many dubs as well of DB, Z and GT. I tho...

Re: Should it matter how a characters trains when they make big gains?

It's a matter of balancing everything. When it comes down to it, Goku's power-up by training on the way to Namek doesn't make any logistical sense even with 100x gravity because he only has like a week to do it. On the opposite end, I consider Frieza's training for his Golden Form to work because of...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 58 - DBZ 95-99 (CURRENT WEEK)

For the 4:3 version of Kai, I seriously have no idea why 90% of the redraws were done at all. My guess remains that most of the redraws were done for the 16:9 version and laziness led the 4:3 version to retain a load of them. But a load of redraws were 16:9-only, so I really have no clue. My guess ...

Goku getting all the balls before the Cell Games, etc. That was in the manga! I thought he collected them off panel?
