Re: Super Episode 131 (25 March 2018)

Well, the episode was bad, no surprise there. But the last scene with Goku and Vegeta was awesome. Did...did Vegeta just end Super more powerful than Goku? He looked to be as strong as SSJBKK x20 Goku, but he got even more powerful when he fought Toppo. Since Goku can’t use Ultra Instinct anymore, t...

Re: Does JP Goku really sound like a woman to a non watcher/follower of Dragon Ball? Or is it informed by cultural osmos

First time I heard it, I knew he was being played by a woman immediately. He sounds like an old banshee. Being forced to listen to it before the dub started actually made him sound less and less like a woman to my ears. So yes, he does sound like a woman. Doesn’t even sound close to a man. Someone t...

The non-DBS version of him. Aka, when he wasn’t a mentally-impaired prick.

Re: I tried to make sense of the complicated and convolluted Dragon Ball Canon

Not enough care still goes into this series’ writing for us to care about what’s canon and what isn’t.

Re: Super Episode 127 (11 February 2018)

Episode was just plain bad 1. Vegeta instantly going back to Super Vegeta Blue. This really can’t be helped at this point, but they never should’ve run the forced final explosion angle to begin with. 2. Jiren’s ridiculously generic backstory.. . are you kidding me?! That’s what’s we waited the whol...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

The same "legal technicalities" prevent others from taking your stuff and/or be punished if they do. Do you really not care? They’re not the same. If someone stole my candy and gave to their friend, I wouldn’t call the friend that consumed it a thief even if he knew it was stolen. He may technicall...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

I’m accessing the website that provides the content, yes. The mere act of me knowingly viewing pirated content is considered stealing. But like I said, I don’t care about their technicalities. But you do care, hence why you went to their site. What are you talking about? I meant I don’t care about ...

Re: Why does Funimation refuse to acknowledge the term "Ki"?

Is there really any reason to? Toriyama’s concept of ki has little to no differences in nature to how energy is in reality (aside from shooting from their hands and the fictional level of control they have over it, of course). It’s not even like it still has that “mystical,” mysterious nature it on...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

To be frank, I don’t see it as stealing on my part. But it is. You're knowingly and consciously acessing content that you don't have any legitimacy to. Those who provide the content illegally are also stealing. The two aren't mutually exclusive. I’m accessing the website that provides the content, ...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

Ya I had heard Crunchyroll does it for free. I should probably start using that just out of principle. As irritating as the show can be sometimes, I don’t want to watch it illegitimately just to spite Toei. That is a very poor attitude to have taken in the first place. The other thing that people d...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

Why are you on this forum if Dragon Ball is a "mediocre Japanese cartoon with horrendous writing"? He's talking about Super specifically. As if post Namek Z was anything better than Super/ Is he? His post doesn't say so. Although it's easy to assume so with his CR comment. And I still think it's st...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

I’m not going to pay to watch a mediocre Japanese cartoon with horrendous writing. If they put a bit more consistent effort into it, I might actually consider doing so.

Isn’t crunchyroll free anyway? Why is this still an issue?

Re: Was God Ki Really Necessary?

Yes, it’s pointless. If they hadn’t completely messed it up, then it wouldn’t have been. But since they did, it is. As it currently stands with how the series has progressed, there’s no reason for god ki to exist as a concept. The show would actually be better off without it in terms of writing.

Re: Is Sean Schemmel possibly tired of voicing Goku?

He’s expressed his dissatisfaction with Goku’s one-dimensional character on more than one occasion. I can’t really blame him. Goku has plenty of cool moments while fighting, but as a character, he’s pretty boring. He’s an alien country bumpkin and martial arts master with an adrenaline addiction wh...
