Re: Why is it that other anime geet pristine home/anniversary releases, yet the Dragon Ball franchise keeps getting ruin

Everything in Z up to the end of the Namek is better experienced in Kai. But after that OG DBZ is the definitive edition. And yes i'm a Bruce Faulconer stan, like how is it not better than the original. I mean I kinda see the point in that the music doesnt take that many breaks. But the up sides to...

Re: How would you have handled GT?

The two big things I would've liked to have seen are: - Far better fights GT Had some good fights. Goku Vs Rildo, Goten Vs Baby, Vegeta Vs Goten & Gohan, SS4 Goku Vs Baby, SS4 Goku Vs Eis Shenron, SS4 Goku Vs Syn Shenron. Alsio Majuub Vs Baby was okay, and SS4 Goku Vs Super 17 is a memorable fight ...

Re: How would you have handled GT?

I would've put the franchise on hold for 2 or 3 years, to not only give the staff time to figure things out, but to also give the fans a break to prevent franchise fatigue. Search for the Black star DB arc: Obviously, I wouldn't have turned Goku into a kid, instead Pilaf's wish would've been wishin...

Re: Should Dragon Ball adopt more Seinen storylines?

Yes that's the question would Dragon ball benefit from going deeper than just surface level agony and really explore the psyche and history were cruelty has taken place.

Re: Should Dragon Ball adopt more Seinen storylines?

Do you have any examples of what you might mean? A simple example could be; lets say Vegeta visits Sadala meets with the king but turns out the Planet of Sadala have a discriminatory system, like they discriminate against low-class saiyans similiar to what they did in Planet Vegeta. This basically ...

Should Dragon Ball adopt more Seinen storylines?

I recently rewatched some good parts of Legend of Korra and even though the show ended of in a bad note. Some of the earlier stuff were very mature and those parts were received well after the more childlikeness of the original show. So the question here is that do you think that if Dragon Ball Supe...

Re: Could a "Dragon Ball: Next Generation" show work?

How do they portray Goku and what could they do with the next generation they can't do with Goku and Vegeta? Fight Tao level enemies and actually struggle? Seems like eventually he'll get to a point like Beerus where he becomes so strong, no one will ever be able to challenge him and his only joy i...

Re: How would you improve DB going forward?

Great. Majin Buu saga is a huge spin-off, my example of Gohan getting his own thing was very spot on. :lol: No really, like I said, Goku is still the central figure. Gohan only got what? 15 minutes of fame/in the spotlight (including his comeback with the Ultimate transformation)? In the grand sche...

Nope, Toriyama flat out stated in the manga that Gohan was the new protagonist.
May you provide a source? Never seen such statement.

Re: How would you improve DB going forward?

If that's was the case then was the buu saga portoin of the manga a spin off because Toriyama stated that gohan would be the new protagonist? No, because that situation is no different from getting rid of Goku for a while to focus on other characters (which was done quite a few times, even in recen...

Re: How would you improve DB going forward?

No, Super and GT are telling the story of the same main characters just at a later point. Naruto is a spin off in the same way Frasier spun off from Cheers. I'm not gonna go back and forth with you on this, so agree to disagree. Because you know I'm right. I know that sounds arrogant, but if it's n...

Re: What is your opinion about the artistic style of Dragon Ball Super?

I get the shape designs, but could you give an example of the bizzare shading & highlights. The staff are professionals, how can their application be seen as bizarre, when it comes from experienced hands? They know what they are doing. I know that even proffesionals can make mistakes, creative as w...

Re: What is your opinion about the artistic style of Dragon Ball Super?

Tadayoshi Yamamuro's designs are not very good at all, and that's pretty much a dead horse at this point. The unappealing shape design, bizarre application of shading and highlights, and unwieldy detail just don't make for satisfying characters at their most basic level. Even the best drawings are ...

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

Thanks Gaffer Tape. I second your opinion, especially regarding the Cell arc. That entire arc until the end is the heroes failing to stop the bad guys at every single turn. Taken as a whole, it's all a naked attempt to delaying the ending. Haha, no! Excuse my laughter but if Goku hadn't gone to tra...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

Like in the things it does. Characters are more fleshed out, but it doesn't go the seinen route or anything it still is very much shonen and it has that silliness Dragon Ball has with the serious moments in-between. But when the moments are serious...they just are more richer and more fulfilling. A...

Normal clothing most definetely, just look at Goten Vs Baby or Vegeta Vs Gohan in GT. That looked cool and different. As for the underwear thing you're getting into demographic territory, like there is a reason for ki blast mostly destroy upper garments and not lower. If it's not suited for kids it ...

Re: How would you improve DB going forward?

About point 1, Present Zamasu vs. Goku was basically that. It was very focused on martial arts, each blow had a big impact on the opponent, and there was barely any ki-related ability. Very underrated fight. Some of that you get from Super Dragon Ball Heroes i'd say. (Havent seen past episode 11 or...
