Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

None of the Dragon Ball movies have ever had anything resembling a good story so that's sort of beside the point. It struggles to even create good stories for the TV series. But it has by far, incomparable from all the others, the best animation and action sequences of the series. That is why it's ...

Re: I like Goku becoming a child again in GT

4. I liked that they didn't force her into the spotlight for the sake of fanservice like randomly giving her an undeserved legendary super saiyan form from something as dumb as back tingles or insults. She's just a regular kid who has her own issues and is not a clone of Goku or Vegeta. She was sti...

Re: I like Goku becoming a child again in GT

1. "Goku being an adult adds nothing to his character". And what actually does Goku turning into a kid again add to his character? Adult Goku in Z (especially in the anime version) displayed more range and gravity in his personality and actions than he ever did any of the other 3 series. And making...

Re: I like Goku becoming a child again in GT

I don't hate it per se, it was a gag concept that overstayed its welcome and felt stale after the black star Dragon Ball arc. I would have been fine if GT was written to have time gaps like Z and by the time he was fighting Baby, Cell, Freeza, Super 17, and the Shadow Dragons he was an adult again,...

A: The scriptwriters felt that it would be too hard to do anything with the adult Gokuu after he defeated Majin Buu. Further, the show has always revolved around Gokuu's growing stronger. So, ...

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

I just saw the film. I'm no animation expert so I don't know if I should be posting here but I thought it was a mess. Extremely dynamic but the constantly changing art style was noticeable. One scene the characters are drawn with no detail and kind of chubby like with less muscle, the next it's an e...

Re: Would there be any potential in Baby or the Evil Dragons being made “canon”?

If, for whatever reason, Toriyama was convinced into giving his own spin on villains from GT like Baby or the Evil Dragons, what do you think would be the best direction to go in? Would there be any story potential in using them, or should they just be left alone? The way GT was done except make a ...

Re: Dragon Ball Youtubers: What are your opinions on them?

With the premiere of the film in Japan, a lot of Youtubers are trying to capitalize on this with clickbait videos and spoiler filled video titles and thumbnails. Can anyone give me a list of youtubers guilty of this so I can avoid them until the movie gets released over here? Sometimes watch a bit o...

Re: Do you believe Nadolny would’ve improved if she came back?

I don't think she needed to improve. She's still the best kid Goku and Gohan in the english dub. Probably the most iconic voice in the franchise since she was there for all of DB and most of DBZ

Re: Which did it better, GT or Super?

You don't think the show makes more if it is better? The popularity is to some extent a reflection of popularity. It isn't going to be popular if it is crap. In GT's case, it wasn't popular because it was a big pile of crap. Therefore, it didn't make money and didn't continue. Absolutely not. We've...

And I certainly agree that it's your opinion, but if you just come with the mindset of "I like what I like regardless of other people so agree to disagree" right you can see how that's kind of unfit for a debate, right?

The nature of GT's boring fights, villains, aesthetics, direction and animation (well, "animation".) push it down for me ...

Re: Why Does everyone Take Dragon Ball So Seriously?

The Resurrection F movie is almost universally viewed as poor and it too still made tons of money. A movie is not a one-to-one comparison here and it is a poor example. The reception of a movie functions completely differently. People like Dragon Ball, so they go see the Dragon Ball movie. But if t...

An homage minus all the humor, all the quality writing and with galaxy-level characters unjustifiably struggling with the easy situations they found themselves in. Also, creating a new planet isn't that big of a deal, really. Z filler did that every few episodes back in the pre Android days. Super ...

Re: Which did it better, GT or Super?

My point is, this is Toriyama's vision, and he alone knows best what's in character for his characters. Therefore, I'm going to roll with it rather than the version of Vegeta made by people who had Uub survive unscathed being turned into a candy and fucking chewed up by Baby. The writers of GT have...

I don’t see your point. The Kanzenban ending does bad by Vegeta’s character too and is a great example of why completed works should be left untouched.

If it wasn't intentional then that means you and the other guy on twitter are clearly projecting meaning that isn't there. Not all symbolism is intentional.

You just contradicted yourself lmao. I just point out the "in-universe motivations, decisions and appearance" of Vegeta written by Toriyama are not what you claimed they are.
