Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

Saints Row was a great example of how to do nonbinary character customisation. I think the third game even had gender as a slider, rather than a toggle. That said, the bare minimum a game can do to cater for non-binary or trans people is to remove restrictions on hair and clothing. I haven't played ...

The record thing is cute. Reminds me of when Naruto running was all the rage a few years ago.

Problem is, we actually RESPECT the other lawyers in this case, as well as the people closest to Vic Mignogna.

I've always believed the alt-right are bullies that never grew up, with Rekieta being the latest example. I realized lately how many parallels I'm seeing to Trump in how many blindly follow an unqualified, unethical individual despite the mass dissent/counsel of others in his field. Problem is, we ...

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

My hot take is that the Tournament of Power felt like the first modern DB story to show progression since Resurrection F. It took things beyond the formula of Goku and Vegeta training with Whis and taking it in turns to fight one-off bad guys. It's disappointing that the next mainline stories, Broly...

Re: Vic Mignogna

In the span of about six months, this situation has gone from being a depressing example of how society lets powerful men get away with abuse and punishes women who speak out, to a hilarious schadenfreude watching a predator and his gang of grifters dig themselves into a hole with no way out. If it ...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

This topic reminds me of a VRV blog editorial called "How Dragon Ball Super Solves the Sissy Villain" problem. It examines Black/Zamasu and Whis as contrasting examples of queer-coded characters. The point it makes is that while Zamasu doesn't start out as a stereotypical "gay villain", the directio...

Re: Vic Mignogna

The cult of personality that builds up around voice actors is weird sometimes. By any standard, Vic's fanbase is microscopic, but there are just enough people out there who latch onto it. I don't think Broly was even a particularly big part- for years, it was kind of a joke that this dude who mainly...

Obviously SSR Goku Black Even though he'll obviously get Godki tag it would make perfect sense imo if his Z buffs Future team. Good point.

Re: "Dragon Ball Legends" Official Discussion Thread

You know, not long ago I was praising this game for its roster, but at the same time it's love of Goku variants puts FighterZ to shame. Seriously, Yardrat Goku? Can we at least get Badman Vegeta and driving school Piccolo to make it some kind of set? Movie 10 Goku wasn't that long ago either. We're ...

Man episode 116 is incredible, definitely a highlight of super. The dud did it justice, I only have a few nitpick. I really wanted to hear Kefka say I win after game over, disappointed that was changed, doesn't show the same conviction she had in that line. Whis was a bit wordy but Ian Sinclair doe...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

It looks like they took feedback on the Ultimate Battle dub song to heart...by mixing it to barely register to human ears. Not sure how I feel about that.

Still a great ep and the performances were top notch. Kefla’s screams we’re great and I actually got chills from Goku charging up the Kamehameha.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Anyway, best line of the ep was easily Chris Ayres' "the emperor's court needs a new jester." I thought Ayres had been replaced due to a sickdom he was never gonna recover enough from to get back into voice acting? As far as I know he's in the process of recovering. At the moment he's voicing the c...

Re: Has there ever been an official explanation as to why Goku and Vegeta got rid of their RoF clothes?

I miss the brief period where those were treated as the "default" outfits for Goku and Vegeta in marketing. For example, the sections of Xenoverse 2 and Fusions' story modes where the "modern" versions of them appear, they have the Res F outfits. It's a shame, those outfits looked really good with S...

Re: When Will We Ever Get Out of the Boo Fight - End of Z Rift?!

The end point of this kind of development, or rather lack of development, is a kind of "Dragon Ball Simpsons", where arcs don't actually matter anymore and whole stories can just be skipped if you want because they change nothing. RF and the Trunks arc can be skipped and very little will feel out o...

Re: Character popularity poll in Japan (not official)

I feel like Bardock might have taken Broly’s place as the most inexplicably popular over-marketed character. At least with Broly I can get the appeal. Bardock was interesting for his first special and then had everything unique about him sandblasted off in follow-up material. Hell, I would put Minus...

Re: When Goten saw Buu killing Chi-Chi, why didn't he get any kind of powerup?

He didn't get a powerup. Instead he got motivated to take the threat seriously and train hard, which is the same thing powerups like that serve in the narrative. It was also forgotten about when Gotenks showed up, which is why that section of the Buu arc is awful, but that's neither here nor there. ...
