Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

How can I possibly get out of people pummeling me in combos, never figured out. I could play the game alright as it was released, but for the last few months, the online got insane and I have no chance even though I still hold my legacy title Super Saiyan 2. Is there some tutorial on how to guard e...

Re: So...Gokuism. Your thoughts on it?

This stuff is nothing new. It's just people using a fictional character to inform their own life principles. Like Dudeism, based on the Dude from The Big Lebowski. Or Christianity, based on Jesus from the Bible.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The Dragon Ball fandom chiefly hates Ribrianne because she is pink, hyper-feminine and overweight. All things that the obnoxious, testosterone obsessed dudebros that make up much of the casual and even hardcore fandom for Dragon Ball and much of the anime community despises. And before anyone tries...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

I'm keen for this. I like that it appears to be doing something different, it's not trying to be hype like Broly was. It's also nice that they appear to be genuinely focusing on Pan and Piccolo. It'll be good to have a break from Vegeta hogging the 2IC role. I think there are a few things people hav...

Re: Rank the DBS arcs from worst to best

Resurrection F - I don't think it's as bad as everyone says, but it's hard to think of a better contender for the bottom slot. Universe 6 - A decent introduction to the new universes, but it's generally bland and kind of ugly. Basically a farce like Resurrection F, but more open about it. Future Tru...

Re: How would you fix anime Zamasu arc while keeping the same plotline?

I remember hearing this suggested somewhere, and I think it's a brilliant idea. Only problem is it would replace the Spirit Sword and I actually really like that thematically: Have the final battle between Vegetto and Trunks vs Merged Zamasu play out the same, but instead Trunks slicing Zamasu in tw...

Re: The Manga is no more canon than the anime right?

I just remembered the reason why I never considered the manga canon: It's because it didn't have the tingly-back explanation for Super Saiyan. Ok bear with me. We know from that one interview about the Broly movie that that explanation came from Toriyama- because of course it did - and in the manga ...

Re: The Manga is no more canon than the anime right?

The weekly script writers weren't "passionate about the material". They...

Fixed that for you and everyone. Id prefer a product that at least the veterans over at Toei developed under toriyama's direction than some guy who wrote DB AF of all fan fics. I too am strangely willing to attribute extra legitimacy in crafting a sequel work to a rotating handful of for-hire weekl...

I’d say it’s whatever comes out first because that what gets ingrained in the collective consciousness. So it goes BoG/RoF movies, U6/Trunks/ToP anime, Broly movie (obviously, that’s the only one- the anime was over and the manga just said “buy tickets dweebs”), Moro/Granola manga. That’s the most ...

Re: What actors/actresses would you like to see in the Moro and Granolah arcs?

Has Akio Otsuka made it into Dragon Ball before? He'd be a sick choice for Moro. For Granolah you'd want someone younger with a hint of "protagonist voice" but who could go dark when needed. Maybe the bloke who plays Eren Yeager? English or Japanese. Whenever speculating on English dub voices it's i...

Re: The weak points of DBS & DBGT both involve Goku's immaturity

Why does that annoy you? Same reason him begging Zamasu for a fight in the Super anime annoyed me. It makes him look whiny. I love irresponsible fight-happy Goku, but the best depictions of it are a bit more subtle with a darker side. Like the way he acted during the Cell and Buu arcs where he was ...
