Re: DB and Nostalgia

I no longer have any nostalgic attachments to DB and as a result my opinions on the franchise have changed drastically for example I absolutely hate the Z anime, I cannot stand the Cell arc in general, I cannot also stand the old dub anymore. I guess realised that I can be critical of the franchise...

Oh. I thought "OP" meant "Opening Post/Poster", but you were referring to "One Piece", weren't you?

You're saying I'm a ''completionist''? If not, what you meant? If yes, why you say so?

To listen to the music of the movies in the movies themselves, or do you think they fit better in the TV series? Definitely in the movies themselves, they are employed far better there as they were actually made for them so the placements aren’t off by any means. In the show they can be placed in l...

It's not a binary thing. Nostalgia can exist along side genuine positive appraisal for the story.
I never said it was. Some people however claim they only watch DB for ''nostalgia'', as if there's no reason an adult could like the series. Well, I suppose it's all in the ''eye of the beholder''.

DB and Nostalgia

You see on this board literally hundreds of posts with sayings such as ''I get nostalgic because of the Faulconer score'', and similar examples...; I myself don't feel any ''nostalgia'' for DB in whatever form. I just enjoy it. I don't remember much of my childhood in that level of detail, to be hon...

Re: PlayStation 5 and the future of DBZ games..

I want to see the original Dragon Ball franchise to get more content, and not Z. Z has been highlighted too many times. Seeing a game like Kakarot oriented into the original Dragon Ball storyline would be fantastic. It'd feel completely new since we haven't gotten any good Dragon Ball games in the ...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I'm not of the opinion that it's the best "modern" DB movie. Production wise, I think Broly is the best thing to have the DB name attached to it. Everything about that movie's visuals are simply breathtaking. Story wise however, I have to give it to BOG. Great characters development, great world bu...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Yeah, sadly Dragonball is too large for risks to be taken like that. Classic is safe and easy. They won't take risks now, yet the product that started this revival (BOG) was a massive risk. Everything that was expected from it and done in previous movies was completely thrown out in favor of a new,...

Re: Can we have the ability to "Like" and otherwise react to posts?

Another forum I'm on uses 'private likes', where you can see exactly who liked/disliked your posts, and you don't see the like/dislike ratios on any posts other than your own. It's kinda nice because that way it doesn't turn into a popularity contest, and whenever someone does like your post (or wh...

Re: Can we have the ability to "Like" and otherwise react to posts?

Anyway, I also prefer the encouragement notion to submit substantial posts when you agree or disagree, because if you add "like/dislike" buttons, people will think they don't need to present their arguments, just hitting those buttons will be enough. I agree. People can be lazy when it comes to dis...

Re: Can we have the ability to "Like" and otherwise react to posts?

Our philosophy is that we encourage people to respond with well-written, empathetic, genuine conversation pieces if they find something that interests them, and that it’s OK if you do not have anything to say. We understand this is not the way that many “modern” social media services work, and beli...

Re: A couple or one sided romance?

The dialogue of the characters. Caulifla refers to Kale as her subordinate, not her little sister. There's still a dynamic of sisterhood between the two but it's not related by blood. It's just my interpretation, but I think Kale is just a really insecure and weak person (almost a caricature of it,...

Re: A couple or one sided romance?

The romantic tension between Tenshinhan and Chaozu is so thick that one can cut it with a knife. The pain and torture they felt during the battle with Nappa is the greatest culmination of their love. It's okay to read cartoon characters as queer. Gay is good. You are clearly projecting things that ...

Re: Original BGM with the broadcast audio

Hey. I know that this thread has some age on it, but a specific scene jumps to mind where I really disliked the Japanese score. The scene is when old Kaioshin told Gohan to power up to attain his new power. This was in Dragon Ball Z, episode 262, roughly 16:20 into it (counting the intro). Gohan st...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

It's interesting to talk about TFC because Japan got an even more reduced filler cut to speed the storyline along to the real meat of the arc, which, I've seen clips online & they also sped up some shots to make them go faster & it's is JARRING to watch. My thing with filler is that, if you need it...
