Re: If Naruto was a Dragonball character, how far would he go?

I think a better question is, what if Saitama were in Dragon Ball.

Re: If Naruto was a Dragonball character, how far would he go?

Since he's human, he'd probably get as far as Krillin.

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

As a historian who is also currently under quarantine with a respiratory infection (and kidney stones, just for fun, on top of that,) entertainment is an incredibly important industry right now. Entertainment is the only chance that these lockdowns have to succeed. It's the social lubricant that ca...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Not only is 70% of the population expected to get this. I find that hard to believe. Maybe over the course of several years if this virus becomes a regular thing like the flu. But 70% over this one outbreak? I highly doubt the U.S. or the rest of the world won't follow a similar pattern to China wh...

Like Super Namekian God or Super Human God, or like how Freeza's Golden form is basically his race's God mode?
I mean, wouldn't Toppo already qualify? In fact, any mortal can become a God of Destruction.

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

Hits ability to stop time is just what Guldo could do but with a different spin on it and his abilities are the most creative in the entirety of Super too. Hit has general time manipulation powers, not just stopping time. Also, Guldo's is just an ability of his slapped onto his character. Hit havin...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

I don't necessarily see that as a good thing. I rather them just reuse an established character than give us a carbon copy. And that line of thinking is why they don't try anymore. What do you mean? We got Beerus, Hit, Zamasu and Moro who are all quite original (two of them aren't villains per se, ...

Re: Would Frieza have kept Vegeta alive if he killed Goku in Resurrection F?

In RoF, I don't think Frieza had the man-power in his empire that he use to have. So that could mean he'd be willing to make a compromise and have Vegeta on board, at least for the time being.

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

I don't think Toriyama came up with Whis and Beerus, but aren't they very different in the movies and Super than how they were conceived? He came up with the Beerus as we know him. The original concept of Beerus is so different that you might as well consider him a different character. Beerus conce...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

Z had original movie villains, none of the villains were brought back from the series out of a lack of ideas. Broly wasn't brought back due to a lack of ideas. Broly was brought back because he was popular. The same could maybe be argued for Frieza. And every other Z movie villain besides Broly, wa...

I would think it was clear from the rest of the sentence, I was being sarcastic. Ahhhhh, so that explains it! My mistake. I'll try to be better about noticing your sarcasm for the next time.

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I didn't ever say it was a scene that was about being cool. Goku's SSJ transformation scene was all about being cool You did say it. Page 24, top post. Just because they don't spell it out for you doesn't mean it's an interpretation. It's clear, but it doesn't treat the audience like they're stupid...

No, you are just so quick to want to score points, you aren't reading my posts. I'm not trying to score points. I don't do that. I read what you say, and I respond. At best, one or both of us is failing to convey what we really mean. But seeing you point out something isn't an emotion, and then poi...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I didn't say it was an emotion, but there are emotions attached to battle scenes and they aren't fun and lighthearted. You have to know what I meant, don't say you don't. Score isn't meant to be analyzed by itself, but how it works in conjunction with the scene. Jesus. This isn't that hard. Battles...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

It's battle so it's not interpretation Your previous answer was an interpretation. And "battle" is not an emotion, and you only know it's about battle from the title, not the track alone. It also depends on how it's placed. What's the story of the scene? You can literally make the same point with t...
