Re: Is the relationship between Goku and ChiChi sexist?

These responses are cracking my shit up. No it’s not sexist. Chi chi sucks too! Therefore not sexist. :clap: :clap: :eh: :lol: :lol: The writing for Chi Chi is undeniably sexist. She exist to push out some tots for Goku. Her character revolved around wanting to marry Goku and then being a nagging f...

Re: Is the relationship between Goku and ChiChi sexist?

Nah. Chi-Chi is a dick to Goku too. She: - Dragged him into marriage. She specifically came for it and got what she wanted. Goku had no idea what it was and she still took what she wanted for granted. - Jumps over Goku's broken body after the Saiyan fight, which Goku notices. - Nags over Gohan wanti...

Re: To me, Ultra Instinct feels like it came out of nowhere

It's no more or less built up than Super Saiyan.

Besides, its appearance relies on it being a borderline fluke that Goku hones during the tournament to fight.

You can't exactly build something like that up through conventional means.

Re: Am I The Only DB Fan Who Likes Jiren?

He has unique iconography to him (even if not always executed properly due to Super's schedule), his visual motif, and parts of the scripting around him like how he refers to ki as heat before other characters, bar notably Goku, get in on it as well because it sounds cool, play off his name pun in a...

Blonde Super Saiyajin.

He wanted to lighten his assistant's inking workload, but the point stands :lol:

Re: Which arcs do you think each recurring character was best and worst potrayed in and why?

Lets see... Son Goku Best - Majin Boo arc: Goku's wild here. Yeah, some inconsistencies and retcons fly around, but the character beats are so good. And the epilogue. Holy shit, what an ending. Worst - Cell arc: There is just nothing particularly interesting going on with it until the final bits of ...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

The thing that Toriyama writes characters only to be wholesome and happy when they actually shouldn't by any human standards. Goku and Kuririn isn't a real bond, it's very toxic, it's more like stockholm syndrome, Kuririn cheats the stone race to win and then enjoys the meal happily in front of hun...

At the time Vegeta thought that he will be reincarnated, and his comment that he's doing it even for Goku seems like a significant change given that he lived last decade being butthurt about him to the point that he took the M, how hard he must have been seething seeing ss3 from the afterlife. :D B...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

In this case I was thinking of the narrative pointing out that Vegeta went too far and there's no redemption for him anymore to let him go later, it kind of has a cynical message again, as long as you are useful you can get away with anything, maybe that's what Toriyama was going for. Vegeta's will...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

So from the perspective Tavarano is promoting, is Dragonball a secretly cynical work or a secretly nihilist work? Stuff from Toriyama about their being "no message" clearly conflicts with other stuff from Toriyama about "poison", or maybe we have to just take this one level up, and get meta, going ...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

Goku still effectively tells his father to fuck off and owns that he and the rest of the Saiyans, including Goku himself, are heaping piles of shit. You must have completely misread the Namek saga (especially the Toei version). Goku has no issues embracing Saiyan pride since then, especially in the...

Haven't been compelled to post or keep up with this for a while, but your last two posts deserve proper replies so lets unpack some: One more thing that I noticed in Dragon Ball is that Toriyama is deliberately breaking and avoiding themes, Yes and no. He is certainly attempting to, at least to a de...

Re: What’s everyone’s opinion on how the manga has so far handled the Universe Survival arc compared to the anime?

It has no idea what it wants to be. It does, however, know exactly what it doesn't want to be. The TV series is a hijacked story (With none put into it's place. It just got nope'd the fuck out.) that had to be forcefully pieced together alongside managing its animation schedule on a fucked productio...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Doctor. wrote:Seems more like Toyotaro just wants to rush to the good stuff rather than write an entertaining story.
He did the exact same thing by exposition dumping the first third of the Future Trunks arc to rush to the fights and dragging the climax to ridiculous degrees.

Are you surprised?

Re: What is the problem with Goku using Super Saiyan God in the anime?

I know a lot of people have commented on how its return has kind of "de-mystified" the form, but this leads to another question. Do you think Blue's treatment in the anime, which is a form established to be more potent than God, adversely effects Super Saiyan Gods mystique as a form through the tri...

I think you are being a bit too literal here.
