Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 93 - DBZ 251-253, movie 12

It's important to remember that Vegetto was stalling for time for a REASON: he was intentionally trying to piss Boo off into absorbing him so that he can free his friends from the inside. If that wasn't a factor then I'd imagine he'd get to it a lot faster than he really did.

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 92 - DBZ 251-253, movie 12 (CURRENT WEEK)

Oh, okay then. I didn't know the name first debuted in the anime and then the manga adopted it. A very nice trivia there. Now, imagine if an actual character would debut in the anime first and then appeared in the manga later... :P My point with the trivia is that the manga does not name Bee or Mar...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 91 - DBZ 241-245 (CURRENT WEEK)

I never thought about it like that but it does sound like Toriyama was planning on recreating those plot beats from the Daimao arc. Or perhaps playing on audience familiarity to pull a fast one on them? There's a lot of story ideas that Toriyama recycles (stalling until Goku shows up being the most...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 91 - DBZ 241-245 (CURRENT WEEK)

This is one of the bigger nitpicks i have with this part of the Buu arc, as they all just assume Gohan has been killed by Majin Buu and gone to the Next World without even really verifying to see if it's true or not. I mean, surely one of those above mentioned at least could check to see first. The...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 91 - DBZ 241-245 (CURRENT WEEK)

One giant misfire of this arc is the reveal that Goku could have defeated Majin Boo then and there but decided not to “because he wanted to leave things to the future generation” it makes Goku look completely irresponsible and undermines the threat. When Goku fought Cell it wasn’t written off that ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 90 - DBZ 236-240 (CURRENT WEEK)

. I kind of like the idea of having to depend on Goten and Trunks to save the world, with them being hybrid Saiyans. But I don't think that Toriyama knew how to properly write it. With all the talk about leaving things to the new generation (not just Goten and Trunks but Gohan as well) and ultimate...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 90 - DBZ 236-240 (CURRENT WEEK)

So, I want to talk about Piccolo’s conversation with Vegeta about his fate and how FUNimation handled it. It’s not nearly as controversial or talked about as Vegeta’s dying speech in the Freeza saga, and I seem to remember a lot of fans thinking it was well handled. But honestly it had the same iss...

[*]As expanded on much much much later on, Fat Boo was formed by Pure Boo absorbing South Kaioshin,
Dai Kaioshin. Absorbing South Kid is what briefly turned him into “Buff Boo”
I thought there was only one Dai Kaioshin

If only they did a "Dragon Ball Kai" for Dragon Ball too... Heh, I'm working on it! I call it Dragon Ball Kai: The First Chapters. But I've been very very busy the last few years and haven't gotten around to making a dent in Take 2, which uses my Dragon Box discs. In the meantime, you should check ...

Did you forget the parts where DBM1-3 replace the three starting arcs, Yes, as I've never watched them! I don't know a thing about them, but obviously I wouldn't replace anything. But like I said, never watched them so I'll just leave it at that. :lol: Well, here's the pertinent info: Curse of the ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 88 - DBZ 228-230, movie 11 (CURRENT WEEK)

The only way for this to work is, despite the Dragon Balls being available to use, they wouldn't do it until they revive Goku and Vegeta. But why would they do that to Majin Buu? You're mis-understanding: the memory wish and the wish to revive Goku and Vegeta are done in the same session. In my Mov...

Re: Anyone else find the RRA arc hard to rewatch?

I actually like the Baba arc, and enjoy it more than certain parts of the RRA arc. It might be partially because I'm a fan of classic horror, which is referenced a lot here. But it also feels appropriate in how Goku initially set off to find Gohan's Dragon Ball, and ends up getting to see the man h...

That may work for your document, but it is an otherwise major departure from the events of the series. Did you forget the parts where DBM1-3 replace the three starting arcs, where Vegeta doesn't follow Nappa to Earth, or where Goku uses a different form of Super Saiyan on Namek?? Also, that would p...

Re: Anyone else find the RRA arc hard to rewatch?

That's the nature of manga and anime. Only because they're not planned out in advance a lot of the time. If I were writing the RRA Arc and absolutely HAD to include Baba, I would have included a bit more foreshadowing that Goku's job isn't done after RRA HQ, and that he notices one of the Dragon Ba...

Re: Anyone else find the RRA arc hard to rewatch?

That moment was nice but the Baba arc still drags I wouldn't say it dragged for me. But when you know the 22nd Budokai is coming up (which imho is when Dragon Ball goes from being good to outstanding), then I get wanting to get past that arc. Exactly. I felt like it was spinning up and delaying the...

Re: Anyone else find the RRA arc hard to rewatch?

It's a drag if you add the filler stuff like the extended adventures with Colonel Silver and Dr. Frappe. It works much better edited down or when just reading the manga. Baba saga however is still annoying as an arbitrary final obstacle.

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 88 - DBZ 228-230, movie 11 (CURRENT WEEK)

An in-universe reason is because I have no reason to assume such thing. Movie 12 happening after Goku goes to the Otherworld and Mister Satan going to live with Majin Buu seems fine. Gohan being on Earth is the unfortunate contradiction of the movie, but I'm sure it's one we can solve it without ha...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 88 - DBZ 228-230, movie 11 (CURRENT WEEK)

I don't really see how that's relevant or beneficial? The farther you place Movie 3, the more likely Goku could just one punch Turles out of existence. The closer you place Movie 3 to Freeza saga, the better we can explain why Turles was a threat. Going by the actual movie, it has to take place bef...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 88 - DBZ 228-230, movie 11 (CURRENT WEEK)

Loved your idea for Movie 2, Nappa comes first, Movie 2 happens, then Vegeta appears. However, if Nappa takes eleven months to arrive on Earth and then Vegeta also takes this amount, that puts the fight against Vegeta in AGE 763. Vegeta has to be closer to Earth so that the last part of Saiyan saga...
