Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

I don't know what they could possibly do that would be more fitting for Goku than discover he has more mountains to climb. That's what any protagonist does. They climb mountains. It's the type of mountain that may or may not make it interesting. What they could do is give Goku a different (but rela...

Re: Goku and Gohan should've been Vegans

I don't like seeing innocent people get hurt either. But I do love me some bbq ribs, buffalo wings, and pepperoni pizza. I don't understand the OP's logic.

Re: DBZ Got Lucky...

I agreed with this...until I remembered that Twilight and 50 Shades of Gray exist and are massively popular as well. A lot of things that are popular don't necessarily have to be consistently well written and have consistent quality. They just have to have one special thing about them that resonate...

Re: DBZ Got Lucky...

Yup. There wasn't much competition when it came out that was doing what it was doing. I think there was enough competition. There was Fist of the North Star, Saint Seiya, and American cartoons like X-Men. And while all these were popular in their own right, Dragon Ball still blew them out of the wa...

Frieza likely would have regardless. He achieved Golden without ever knowing that Goku and Vegeta achieved god forms.
He knew Goku survived a fight with Buu and Beerus.
Buu, yes. I don't think he found out about Goku fighting Beerus until later iirc.

Re: What do you want the next DragonBall series to be like?

I'd like DBZ levels of blood to return to the series. But maybe that's asking for too much.

Re: A state higher than Ultra Instinct?

So what, like Mega Instinct? Super Instinct? MAXIMUM OVER INSTINCT!

In all honesty, I hope it remains as something that Goku only achieves by being backed into a corner, and never something he can do on command. Kind of like what Jak does with his Dark form from the Jak and Daxter series.

Re: Is Dragon Ball too closely tied to its own zeitgeist?

Xianxia authors have a bad habit of exaggerating things, but they're in a situation where they can't not exaggerate feats: "Legendary martial artist Yuli Ban leapt 500 thousand miles in a single bound and destroyed a planet with a mere flush of his hand". That's unrelatable. It's too far beyond wha...

Although why the whole arena wouldn't have been materially built in a similar fashion is unknown to me.
Because that would have simply been more work. Put extra care to only the pillar makes perfect sense.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I'd say the hatred towards Jiren is far more justified than the Saiyan girls. And this is coming from someone who genuinely likes Jiren. Nah not really I get not liking the dude and all but the hatred for the dude is exaggerated at times and screams of pettiness every time I see a thread bitching a...

Re: What is the dumbest DB fan theory you have ever heard?

The cold fact is that Dragon Ball itself isn't original You can more-or-less say that about anything though.

Re: Best and Worst designs of characters

A lot of people say they don't like Jiren's design, but I like it a lot (strictly speaking about looks alone). The whole grey alien look, mixed with a superhero look, just works for some reason. Could be due to the fact that grey aliens are usually depicted as scrawny and small, and Jiren is jacked ...
