Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

ArcSys: So, how many moves should we give Gogeta? Bandai: Yes. This guy looks ridiculous. He looks like he's made to burn meter, but his tools in neutral seem crazy as well. The only question is, who does he replace on The Shell? Is he the new Bardock, the new Ratku or the new SSku? I'm leaning the...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

That's fair enough. I'm really excited for the Dragon ShortZ, those look like a lot of fun. It'd be cool to see the DBZA cast unrestrained by the limits of the original footage. You could sort of tell they were itching to change it up based on how the last few Kai videos and that JoJo thing were- ju...

Re: Hit vs Dyspo was the most strategic fight in the series?

Look, the whole SSG to SSB thing doesn't compare to Hit vs Dyspo at all. Whether we're talking anime or manga, it's still just playing around with the same ki=power baseline and neither version does a good job of explaining why it's necessary. It doesn't help that God and Blue are so poorly defined ...

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

I wondered how they were going to handle the Ultra Instinct friendship scene. Everyone just saying Goku's name wouldn't have worked necessarily well here. So, instead we get little bits of encouragement from everyone. Except of course... Freeza: Dance for us monkey. I almost spit my drink at that. D...

Re: Hit vs Dyspo was the most strategic fight in the series?

Dragon Ball is kind of the bedrock on which the modern, formulaic idea of the "battle anime" was founded (no I'm not saying it invented it, there are whole genres from which it drew inspiration, I've read the Wuxia thread). It kept things simple with ki as the basis for everything, and just having m...

Re: "Dragon Ball Legends" Official Discussion Thread

A while ago I was whinging there hadn't been any support for female warriors, now we get two banners with a bunch of new ones. Naturally I summoned exclusively on the Maidens banner so Team Ribrianne can ride again. Didn't get Rozie, but got Kakunsa up to 4 star. And hot damn, she's actually really ...

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

I thought this dub was awful even as an 8 year old kid. I remember I was turn off by Dragon Ball for a while because I was like "Why do people like this show? It's so stupid.". I'm the same! I watched it as a kid, but I've got no nostalgia for it whatsoever. Even as a kid, it just seemed cheap and ...

Re: Zamasu's arc -- anime vs manga

Vegetto has a MUCH better fight in the anime, making him a lot more memorable. And about this I respectfully disagree. I didn't like seeing Vegetto getting punched around by Merged Zamasu and actually bleeding in the anime. It made him feel very weak, nothing like the Z Vegetto we know. Doesn't hel...

Re: What if Broly and Kale met

If they wanted to do a Super Broly vs Kale fight story, they could absolutely fudge it so the two of them are even. That's generally how those crossover stories go. In terms of how the meeting would go, it's hard to tell. They're both so passive outside of battle, Broly especially. Really, it'd just...

Re: Vic Mignogna

You're doing them a disservice by suggesting all of them are being like that. The ones I saw here were more along the lines of "defeated acceptance". Not so much accepting that Vic was guilty, just that they lost. Lots of... "I don't know man. I'm ISWV, but, this isn't looking too good..." "Man, Ty...

Re: DBGT: General Designs/Visuals & Music Opinions

On the whole, GT's design feels very of-it's-era. It doesn't have the same timeless quality the original designs had. Too many 90s fashion choices, Super Saiyan 4 and some of the villain designs leaning more on the edgy side, not too mention the more realistic, real world-ground cities compared to t...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: positives and negatives

Positives 1. Shifting focus from saving-th-world stories back to martial arts development- one of the few benefits of its 10-year time skip setting 2. Toning down the rigid adherence to vertical progression and power-scaling- characters are allowed to "step outside their lanes" more than before 3. L...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

TOEI's smartest response would be what they've already been doing since the Vic controversy began, which is to not do anything. If they acknowledge it, that puts pressure on them to do something about it, and gives it undeserved attention. I'd say more than 90 per cent of the people who watched DBS ...

Re: Gohan vs. Dyspo or Gohan vs. Kefla: Who was the better final opponent for Gohan in the ToP?

Gohan had more connection with Kefla than with Dyspo. At least in the manga they talked briefly and seemed to have created some kind of relationship in the end before they were eliminated. The biggest problem is that we saw almost nothing of the fight between the two, so it doesn't seem like a real...
