Re: Shintani's style doesn't do it for me

But that's like.....your opinion man.

I like Shintani because his designs exude flexibility, something you wouldn't see in Yamamuro's designs.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" - Animation Hub [Updated: 20/07]

I loved the animation but something bugged me. I'm talking about the art, the style, don't know how to call it. Seeing shirtless Goku, Vegeta and Broly with pretty much no body muscle seemed weird to me, like early DBS episodes. Especially after seeing Broly wear that black shirt that made him look...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

In what way is the artwork awful? I said at times . Remember how DBS had some terrible animation?

Re: Question About Yuya Takahashi.

Or is he a new animator that just happens to understand the proper style of dragon ball? He is an animator who understands the older Dragon Ball designs clearly. His inspiration likely comes from the cuts animated by Naotoshi Shida. Well, I think the most he references Naotoshi Shida, is really eff...

What makes Dragon Ball special?

Dragon Ball is all over the world, right? It's popularity can't be underestimated by the fact it's the most influential Shonen manga of all time. Skyrocketing the manga-circulation scale in the 1990's, many fans undoubtedly love Dragon Ball. But there's a question: What makes Dragon Ball special? L...

I mean, it's me, I think it pretty much goes without saying that I find Shintani to be significantly... worlds away better.

Yamamuro or Shintani?

Here are the designs: Yamamuro (Goku) http://i68.tinypic.com/sgshn5.jpg Shintani (Goku) http://i67.tinypic.com/34et7a0.jpg You could clearly see the loosened posture and the relaxed hand in Shintani's design. It's a pretty neat detail and serves as a key factor on how great the animation in the movi...

Re: Interview with Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru and Masaki Sato

Great work, Psykomatik. Sato, Nakatsuru and Maeda are totally unrivaled when it comes to old-school character art.

Re: Frieza is really killing it since his return?

So, do you think Frieza and Frost team up would do any justice in the next arc (if possible)? As the main antagonists of the next arc? Not really. I wouldn't mind them being a factor in the next arc or the one after, but there isn't really anything new that can be done with Freeza X2 as the main Vi...

Re: Frieza is really killing it since his return?

I actually wasn't expecting very much from Freezas return. Hell, when the news came out I was pretty sure it was a fake out until a few weeks before the episode aired. Because,like, Freeza? Again? Really? Didn't he JUST die? Again? So that fact that he has been so entertaining and that he works sur...

Re: Frieza is really killing it since his return?

I think, yes.

The first time I heard the news of him returning, I was pissed off. But then Episode 94 came around and boy, Toei did a great job in that. Seeing how he is still the scummiest villain in all of Dragon Ball, the aura of him being elegant AND badass was way too much. And I liked it.
