Re: What do you want the next DragonBall series to be like?

Honestly, I really like Julie's ideas. I like introducing circumstances to limit the characters' abilities and forcing the fights to be won through means other than another power-up or being able to punch the wall slightly harder than the other guy, and I'm genuinely fascinated by the more out-there...

Re: Cell's Pronouns: He/Him v. It/Its

I had no idea Kanzenshuu had a personal pronouns guide! I'm gonna give this a proper read later because I'm actually really fascinated by how many ways there are to refer to yourself in Japanese and what that suggests about your particular situation, either personally or socially. Just skimming thro...

Re: Why I'm not fond of Vegeta's original anime color scheme

I'm mixed on the original colours. On the one hand, I think it's a bit too abrasive, with a few too many colours clamouring for your attention, and I think it was the best choice to change them when they did. But on the other hand, I kinda like it because it's one of those things that highlights the...

Re: Is Viz gonna complete the Dragon Ball Z full color manga?

I wish we could get a large-sized release with the original version. I don't like the idea of selling a colored version as the only 'prestige' version of a work not originally in color. Hell, the color's for the colored edition aren't even good! I've not really read the full colour manga (too expen...

Which dub opening rap is better? GT or One Piece?

Something that's always fascinated me is the very brief era in the mid-00s where dubs or localizations of Japanese shows inexplicably got rap/hip-hop theme songs. Power Rangers swapped out their typical rock for Mystic Force and Operation Overdrive. The German dub for Naruto got a rap opening with h...

Re: History of Sonic and Dragon Ball Z

I'll give you the Street Fighter movie, but that's it. It's far easier to come up with a story about guys fighting each other than a Hedgehog that runs really fast and collects rings. What is it that people love from the medium of video games? Fundamentally it's gameplay, not story. Going from one ...

Re: History of Sonic and Dragon Ball Z

Death Note's problem is the original Death Note isn't a good story. Sonic's problem is that it's a video game with a VERY thin storyline. I think the only way it could possibly work is if they got Lord and Miller to write and direct. I don't think the quality of the source material, or in this case...

Re: "Dragon Ball Game Project Z Action RPG" Announced.

CC2's games (at least far as their Naruto Storm games, and by proxy Asura's Wrath, are concerned) aren't so much bad as they are just very shallow. The mechanics are really simple, characters don't have that many moves, and what they do have takes no effort to input. The focus is more on providing a...

I'm sure there's been more good games in the series than Sonic 3D Blast , Sonic 1 on the Master System, Sonic Unleashed , Sonic Mania , and Sonic R *, but eh. To each their own. *As facetious as I'm being with this post, I genuinely ...

Re: Why wasn't Raditz voiced by Masako Nozawa?

I actually don't mind that Raditz isn't voiced by Nozawa. I think Chiba gives a very good performance, and I do like that he was also the voice of Pilaf (it's a small connection, but one with a bit of an amusing irony to it, I feel). I can understand why some folks would want the Son family to be co...

Huh, what a happy coincidence! I've been thinking of checking out music from Wuxia films/games/shows for a couple of days now, and then this thread pops up out of the blue.

Recommendations for manga like Dragon Ball (in certain ways)

Comic books, and by extension manga, is a medium that's fascinated me for the longest time. It's a uniquely visual medium in a way very different from the likes of film, television or video games, with a variety of really interesting traits such as panel layouts, composition, the arrangements of act...

Re: Is Dragon Ball Your Favorite Anime Ever?

Not really. This is largely because, despite being a fan of the series for nearly 11 years (good lord), I haven't watched all that much of the various TV shows. I never had any of the TV stations that aired the show and there wasn't a proper home release made for the UK/Ireland area until the Orange...

Re: Just started playing Xenoverse, and would like some tips and advice

So I played a few more hours of XenoVerse , and I wasn't enjoying it. It got to the point where, when I figured I should give it another go, I genuinely didn't have any enthusiasm or desire to go near the thing. And after a particular obnoxious Parallel Quest that involved fighting a whole bunch of ...

Just started playing Xenoverse, and would like some tips and advice

Dragon Ball XenoVerse is a game that, despite how popular it was, I've never been able to play. This was due to a combination of how expensive it usually was (usually being priced at €25 minimum on my end of things) and my own lack of interest in the game. I like the ideas it has, but whenever I wa...
