Re: Reason for Freeza's design in "Resurrection 'F'"

So basically, it’s because Akira Toriyama is lazy. What a shocker. In other news, the sky is blue.

Re: Funimation's portrayal of "Killa"

One translation:
“Man, i tell you that, whooh, man, uh, Pintar'll work him like a jackhammer, ah, that'll kill mm. yeah. this here. that guy. heh. he hah. hm"”

No idea what they were smoking when they wrote/recorded that lmao.

Re: What made you switch over to the Japanese version?

I’ve “switched over” out of necessity rather than choice. If the English dub was released at least relatively alongside the Japanese version, I’d never subject myself to Japanese Goku’s grating voice.

Re: Dragon Ball Movie 20 - Animation Hub

I'm sure there's people who can explain it better than be, but in short: stiff and bad designs. I thought the character designs in BOG and ROF were a lot better than Toriyama’s modern, lazier designs. I don’t get what the problem is in that regard. They're not better for being 'less lazy' if they r...

Re: Super Episode 131 (25 March 2018)

Good: Ending with Goku and Vegeta as actual rivals. Goku not having immediate access to Ultra Instinct. Bad: Everything else. It rendered the whole premise of the arc pointless. Why not just do a universal tournament without the stupid, meaningless “erasure” threat? The characters took their sweet ...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

It really should’ve been Goku and Frieza or Goku, Vegeta, and Frieza instead of squeezing 17 back in where he clearly doesn’t belong. What a disappointment. Can’t wait until this series is over. Unfortunately for you, there's a Super movie coming and probable return in in 2019. Ouchie. “Probable” n...

Re: The "Omega Shenron" Effect

The problem with the Omega Shenron fight was that the writers were already out of ideas and inspiration long before they got to it. That fight could’ve looked much more impressive in correlation to the level of power they were supposed to be at. It could’ve been a battle on a much larger scale than ...

Re: The Goku-Vegeta rivalry is the most overrated rivalry in fiction and should be concluded in Super

The problem is that the writers seem to think Vegeta’s entire character revolves around this “rivalry” with Goku when that’s not really the case. Yes, for the longest time, it was a huge part of his character. But that was when his character was still being developed, and he wasn’t always like that....

Re: Super Episode 129 (4 March 2018)

I disagree immensely with what you're saying. The only reason any of this had any impact was BECAUSE of the length of time it took. And it honestly wasn't even that long. The whole sequence of Goku being overcome with Jiren's assault on the rock was a few minutes. If you don't have the patience for...

Re: Super Episode 129 (4 March 2018)

But it wasn't re-used, the first half wasn't merely setting up "Goku can't beat Jiren currently", it went beyond that to say that "Goku can go beyond his current power to beat Jiren", I don't see how thats necessarily re-used from 110, which doesn't establish that Goku can't beat Jiren with Omen, b...

Re: Super Episode 129 (4 March 2018)

Just because its been shown in the title and preview doesn't mean it doesn't need to be shown. Thats like saying you didn't need to see the defeat Freeza in the Namek arc because it said so in the preview and episode title. Its still stuff that needs to be visually communicated and demonstrated to ...

Re: Super Episode 129 (4 March 2018)

They weren't trying to establish that at all. The episode wasn't about Jiren being stronger than Omen, it was about Goku's increasing mastery of the state. Which they didn’t start getting into until the second half. The first half was them fighting equally, eventually giving the edge to Jiren. Most...

As a documentary on how to waste time, I give it 9/10. As an episode of Dragon Ball, it gets a 5/10. All they were trying to do is establish the fact that Jiren is above the omen, which they already did in episode 110. We didn’t need to see all this. They weren't trying to establish that at all.
