Re: Who should succeed Masako Nozawa?

I don't know how accurate this is, but there was a rumor back in 2012-2013 that Toei wanted to recast her in BOG but Toriyama was against the idea.

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Okay, that character is disgusting. We literally get a character who can one-shot you if he does a power up move seven times, summons Dragon Balls out of his ass, has a counter move, an auto-track attack move, can dash twice in the air, has an M which makes Cooler question his tail's length ... and...

Re: GT and misogyny

It also has to do with the fact that Super is genuinely good and entertaining while GT is trash to be honest. As expected from a product written by Toriyama. Toriyama also worked on and approved parts of GT. He wasn't as heavily involved with it as he is with Super, but he was involved none the les...

Re: GT and misogyny

It could just be, and hear me out, we don't agree with you. Under normal circumstances, you'd be right, but it's hard not to notice other aspects of the franchise like GT get called out on the same things Super gets defended for doing. For example, a good number of fans, if not the majority dragged...

Yeah that's not condescending at all.
I'm not trying to be, I'm serious, modern DB gets away with practically everything. I don't know why its fans turn themselves into pretzels to defend it, it'd be easier to just say that if modern DB does it then it's OK.

Re: GT and misogyny

Because the plot tells us that they are newbies that have no idea what Super Saiyan even is. But they meet someone who does know it. They aren't figuring it out on their own. They were taught. Well, they fought world ending battles, simple explanation. "What, they just know Super Saiyan? That's bad...

Re: Can DB Ever Move Past Goku?

I said in the manga thread that a new development can be made now that seemingly Goku will have to atone for his father's sins (an idea never explored so far), but will Toyotaro actually deliver it? Can Toyotaro really do it? Let's just hope he can. I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you. If ther...

Re: GT and misogyny

For a long time in this same fandom, the vast majority of people were legitimately upset that Pan never got Super Saiyan. Understandable so, as unlike these new saiyans, GT took the time to develop Pan throughout its run. Pan reaching Super Saiyan during the Super 17 or shadow dragons arc would've ...

Re: Can DB Ever Move Past Goku?

Next gen stories are almost always boring or at least never nearly as appealing as they sound. Stories that recycle the same plot points of older, more popular stories are just as boring if not more so. No one's asking for a 300 episode show, just a short series to test the idea. If it works then g...

Re: Can DB Ever Move Past Goku?

I've said for the longest time that the BOG movie should've been the final "main" story that focused on the old cast, and that a next gen show should've been what followed, focusing on the next gen of characters while the old cast took a back seat. Like you said, there's just nowhere else to take Go...

Re: 2021 Dragonball Game predictions?

On the English DB Games Battle Hour live stream, this guy said: "Later, we will look into the past games and maybe dip a little bit into the Future as well....?" Could be referring to the DLC announcements that happen in 10 hours or we might actually get a new game announcement. The new game announ...

Re: GT and misogyny

Toriyama was making this shit up as he went along; his introduction of "S-cells" which are basically just midichloreans, is pretty much representative at that. It's why I no longer really care about power levels, because it's clear the show itself stopped giving a shit about them. A lot of other sh...

Re: GT and misogyny

I'd personally prefer it if they had already known about the Super Saiyan forms and just lacked access to the god forms. That would have made more sense. Can you imagine the struggles Cabba must have gone through to become as strong as a post RoF base Vegeta? Why not take it a step further and have...

Re: GT and misogyny

I find it really silly at this point in the series that anyone is bothered that they got Super Saiyan 2 or 1 with ease like it's a level that has much meaning. Notice how popular Super: Broly was. He was basically isolated for years and there was no one to show him how to transform, but within a fe...

I expect them to announce a 4th season, and maybe Omega Shenron as the first character. I also wouldn't be surprised if both this and XV2 get ps5/series x ports.

Re: Who should succeed Masako Nozawa?

So has Masako voiced Goku in every other media representation of DB? Considering her age, I have to imagine that they've used an understudy in like a game or something, right? I assume the games have a lot of reused dialogue, especially sequels like Budokai and Tenkaichi which reuse assets, but the...

Re: Who should succeed Masako Nozawa?

Give Masako one last goodbye (say in the form of a movie) and then pass over the role publicly. That being said, it's hard to determine when that moment should be. She's clearly still loving the role. I think it's possible that if Toriyama has decided when he plans to walk away, she could go with h...

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

It seems like they're trying to make Minus and its events have a bigger impact on the overall story, which isn't a bad idea as despite not liking it, it makes everything feel more connected.

Re: 2021 Dragonball Game predictions?

What's the chances of a new game being teased tomorrow? I personally think it's very likely, as this is close to the time that last 2 or 3 games got announced. It would be interesting if they brought Spike back into the development cycle. Yes, as much as I don't really like spike I'm sure they coul...

Re: GT and misogyny

Krillin and Piccolo are more or less just as helpless against Buu as Videl would have been. They at least could have let her be on the front lines. Hell, Mr.Satan is allowed to be on the front lines despite being completely outclassed by everyone else while Videl, who's stated to be stronger than h...
