Perhaps it's harder to download information into a human brain than to program it into a computer, so 17 and 18 forgot some things.
Why would there even be a need to "download" it? It's a brain. Just have them memorize it.

Re: Can Kaioshin's power be felt by mortals?

My personal headcanon is that Kaioshin have both normal ki and divine ki. The reason for this is that they are Gods of Creation, and they need normal life ki to be able to create normal life.

Except those season sets gave fans plenty to talk about (and not really good things but still) from the awkward
I'm not saying DVDs give people nothing to talk about. But it simply doesn't compare to how Abridged permeated the fandom.

Re: The "Team Four Star" actors were blacklisted by Funi and Toei rumor

I think one thing that's missed by those in this thread who are pushing the idea that TFS reinvigorated the franchise is that the lack of new official Dragon Ball in the west from 2005 to 2012 wasn't a period where the franchise was in danger of being forgotten; far from it, in fact. The popularity...

They sound exactly the same. It can't be a coincidence.

But actually, I didn't even realize DBZA Frieza predates Kai Frieza.

It goes without saying that most people in real life would be completely oblivious to DBZA.
Does it?

Most people as in people in general in real life, or Dragon Ball fans in real life? I think a significant amount of Dragon Ball fans are well aware of DBZA. I'd dare say the majority.

Do you think its viewership is reflected in Youtube comment sections?
To some extant, yes. I'm sure it's not a 1:1 correlation, but anything that's popular is gonna have a higher chance of being referenced in general youtube comments.

I think you overestimate its influence. A Youtube comment section is hardly a good gauge of success.
Its a pretty good gauge seeing that youtube is one of the biggest and most viewed media platforms. Its no different than looking at viewership on a particular TV channel.

If TFS is needed to keep Dragon Ball relevant (It isnt by the way) then Dragon Ball's fanbase is pathetic.

Re: Black history month: Who is your favorite black DB character?

Staff Officer Black is the only major black character that comes to mind. Though I've said before that Mr. Satan kind of looks mixed black/white to me (though he also looks like he could be middle eastern). I don't think Mr. Popo is human, so I don't think he counts. Heles is Egyptian-based. She cou...

Re: How come no one remembers the Martial Art Tournament fighters in DBZ?

In-universe, I'm going with the popularity of the tournament. After the 23rd TB there's a big difference in attention received: there's camera's, huge arena, even a junior division is added. This makes sense. It seems like during classic Dragon Ball, martial arts tournaments may have had a more nic...

Well we're still missing orange and purple. Purple should probably be reserved to a Saiyan who is also a God of Destruction.

Re: How is Hell able to contain these increasingly strong villains?

The answer is simple. The dead can't escape the afterlife. Because they're dead. It doesn't matter how strong they are. As for the cocoon binding the likes of Frieza, I'm pretty sure that goes beyond sheer power as well. I've always interpreted the cocoon as some form of supernatural binding. It bin...

Re: Another transformation gets sent to the retirement home

I dunno how likely it is, but there's still the idea of combining the higher Super Saiyan forms with SSJG. And there's still the idea of combining any of the Super Saiyan forms with Ultra Instinct.

Re: How Much Of A Difference Would Doubling Goku & Piccolo's Power Have Against Raditz?

Weren’t those battle powers misreadings in the first place? Their actual battle powers were much higher than that, with Goku’s kamehameha nearing 1,000. They weren't misreadings. They simply weren't powered up. Scouters rely on reading active power output where as ki sensing can reveal potential po...

When Beerus is introduced a slight tap on SSJ3's Goku's shoulder was enough to knock him down to the ground completely immobile.
A light tap? Goku was launched downward and crashed into the ground.

Re: Would Krillin be able to ride the Flying Nimbius as an adult?

No, his desire for 18 nearly got everybody killed. Plus there was that pageant in the Android 13 movie. That was just poor judgement and decision making more than anything. It's similar to Goku giving Cell a senzu bean. As for the Nimbius cloud even Launch was able to ride the cloud. I'd imagine if...
