Re: Asian characters in Dragon Ball

Yeah it's a fictional world just like how Avatar the last Airbender is a fictional world. Doesn't mean we can't tell what the races of the characters are supposed to represent. In 6 pages of talk about Toriyama's intentions, it was the first quote taken from him, and you immediately took the chance...

Re: Asian characters in Dragon Ball

The setting looks Chinese at first glance, but it’s actually an entirely fictional locale. The era is all over the place! And I think that’s fine. That’s because I can draw what I like, and whatever it turns into is fine! In other words, it’s “anything goes”, my specialty. -Akira Toriyama, 'The Mak...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

I said what he did was pathetic, not he himself. And people are defined by their actions. Its the same baseless defence of "i called what you did stupid, i didn't call you stupid". Everyone knows what you were implying, you're just not honest enough to admit it and now hiding behind semantics inste...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

But how is being long a bad thing? There is no universal objective limit to how long or short a story ought to be. Its subjecive, thats the point, there's no rules about how it should or shouldn't be, so it can't be objective, it comes down to personal preference, which when it comes to discussing ...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

It does matter. It's not a single protracted story. You can start pretty much anywhere and watch in nearly any order. You don't have to watch them all to get the entire story because it's not one story. It's a lot of one offs. The structures are completely different. Being long is absolutely a vali...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

But Doctor Who isn't one long protracted story. Doesn't matter, are you saying it isn't long? I am making no other comments on anything about the shows themselves, other than the objective statement that they are long. It's not my argument that that's a bad thing, it's someone elses, i'm just dispu...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

Oda is the kind of writer who foreshadows stuff hundreds of chapters in advance and makes you amazed at what was hiding in plain sight. You know the kind of details that Toriyama sometimes reveals in interviews, like how 16 was modeled after Dr. Gero's son who was killed by Goku when he fought the ...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

Any time I try and watch another shonen, I just see everything from how it derived from Dragon Ball. Like “ok that character is the Vegeta. That character is the Freeza. Now he’s transforming. Ok the main character just will powered his strength to increase and punched the bad guy in the face. Now ...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

Criticizing One Piece just because it's long doesn't make sense if you haven't actually read it and don't understand the progression of the story and why it has to be that long to fit the entire arc Oda wants to tell. It's not like some series where the author just keeps adding new arcs after the l...

Re: So what's Toriyama up to then?

Toyotaro is still just a glorified fanfiction writer/artist who is now doing official work. The best western comparison to him is people who drew art on deviantart for 15 years and wrote fanfics on fanfiction.net...and then they got hired to do official material. He's still a fan-artist when all is...

Re: The feeling of the Super manga compared to the original DB manga

I actually wish the manga and anime told completely different stories so we would have more adventures I would've liked the manga telling adventures set during different periods of time focused on different characters. Or even during the same period of time, since we have little to no idea what cha...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

. Goku being excited by the prospect of a real challenge, and taking action to aid and abet that challenge even when he knows that the person embodying it is a total scumbag, is well established by this point. It's because it's far beyond scumbaggery and Goku is known to kill folks who pose a serio...

Re: Changing the protagonist post-cell games

Vegeta is my favorite character, with that said, he wouldn't fit the role of main character in the Buu arc, nor DB as a whole. Vegeta's entire character development in the Buu arc wouldn't have happened without Goku playing a major role in it. However, I've always believed that BOG should've been G...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

EDIT: Nevermind get back to me when this is about writing again jfc.

Taking initiative, we can all agree Toyo has come a long way as an artist right? He still has this weird way of drawing Necks but his art is so much smoother and easier on the eye now.
