Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

But I'm sick of giving this garbage the benefit of the doubt. ... I tried. I really tried. I've tried to give this show credit for the small successes it has had. I came into this arc hyped as all get out. I want to like this. But it's finally broken me. This show is a disaster. An absolute disaste...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

It's all subjective. No, it's not all subjective. You can't listen to an MP3 and a FLAC and say, "well subjectively one sounds better than the other and there's no argument against that." No, there are technical factors about the FLAC version that makes it superior to an MP3. When it comes to a com...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

Like I said, that's your opinion, not a fact. OP is vastly superior to DB when it comes to storytelling, and that's not an opinion. "Your opinion is subjective but mine is fact." It's not my opinion, it's the fact of what makes a good story good . I don't think OP is better than DB because I like i...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

Your past argument was "Super is a sucess because of its audience and the money made, no matter how bad the story is" then the same could be applied to say One Piece is inferior to Dragon Ball (which in fact is), not only on Japan, but overseas. The same can be applied to any media product, yes. Bu...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

Because DB shouldn't copy from "lesser series" (cough One Piece is magnitudes better storyteller than DB cough). Using the same argument you used about profit and audience being more revelant than storywise: Toei charts proves the otherwise. Uh, what? My argument was that more sales =/= better prod...

Fans Pre-131: "Super hasn't given Goku any character development at all. He's still the same dickhead he's always been, it's sooooo annoying!"

Re: Ep 130 and new movie: Animation expectation

Yeah I don't know why we should expect to be at that level. I don't know much about the animation staff as others in this forum, but it sounds like the guys behind 130 have always been around at Toei. They've always been around and BoG and RoF had about a year of development (probably way less), yet...

131 is titled "A Miraculous Conclusion!" so I'm thinking it will be some sort of deus ex machina finale like Goku Black arc and not a typical "Goku saves the day" ending.

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

Not really, that's Toei's interpretation which clashes wifh Toriyama's interpretation. I ain't saying Goku is heartless, but Toriyama makes it very clear through out all of Dragon Ball its not his love for his friends or family that pushes him past his limits, Vegeta's speech while Goku is fighting...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

As long as Dragon Ball keeps being entertaining, most people won't care about those details. Complaining about lack of consistency is not as fun as tune in to watch the next episode. I think consistency is very important as most will expect it in other things such as movies and games so I don't kno...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

Because Frieza's power up had an explanation. His race was born like that and Frieza directly said that he would make big increases when training because of that. Android 17 was also "born" strong. Yeah, he was just a normal human before, but simple organic enhancements by Gero turned him into some...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

I don't really know what to think of 17 being alive. It would have been more epic for only Frieza and Goku to be there. The two guys who were enemies between each other long ago working together. 17 being there takes that impact away a lot, at least for me. I also said time again before my thoughts...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

No. Nostalgia is a very potent argument. Honestly if DB or Z aired today for the first time, it would be SLAUGHTERED. So you're quoting the wrong person as I'm not blind due nostalgia. You can hope that is better, but you shouldn't expect it to be. We have been given no reason to expect better when...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

I think a lot of people suffer from the nostalgia-glasses effect where they think back on DBZ and remember it having a grander than life plot and expect DBS to be the same. When in fact, DBZ was just the same as DBS: "a visual, super powered spectacle to sell merchandise first and foremost" with a ...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

I don’t understand why some are letting Super’s narrative, character development, plot, etc weigh it down so much in their opinion. For a lot of shows I watch I do value these aspects, just not for Dragon Ball. Why? Because this show is meant to be eye candy first. This isn’t Game of Thrones (admit...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

I think the whole "goddamnit, ANOTHER hair color change?" deal was worth it after seeing the mastered-UI model animated in full glory like this.
