Re: I really don’t understand the sheer outrage...

I don't understand all of this outrage over Goku never changing. Outside of very minor changes, he's never changed in a major way ever in the series. He's a flat hero character and always has been. He's who he always was, a kind hearted but dangerously naive combat maniac. He threatened Earth by gi...

Re: How did Freeza last against SS Goku on Namek for so long when he was outclassed?

which is supposed to erase you from existence I've seen this, and "destroys your soul" statements many times, but I don't remember them in the anime or manga. May I ask for source? In the anime, when Beerus uses the Hakai on Zamasu, he says he won't go to the afterlife and that he was erased from e...

Re: How did Freeza last against SS Goku on Namek for so long when he was outclassed?

Insane levels of durability. He survived a hakai from someone with God of Destruction powers, which is supposed to erase you from existence, he survived Namek blowing up in his face after he got cut in half while he only had a little ki that he got from Goku, was able to somehow stay alive while in ...

Re: I really don’t understand the sheer outrage...

Goku doing ridiculous stuff is something he has always done in the series. Giving Piccolo a senzu during the 23rd World Tournament, letting Vegeta live, letting Freeza live and even giving him some of his ki, giving Cell a senzu, etc. Par for the course with this guy.

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

Piccolo and Tenshinhan. Piccolo should have never, ever been relegated to the sidelines, and Tenshinhan should have been more useful than he ultimately wound up being. He had the Shin Kikoho moment in the Cell arc, but he didn't do a ton else. And my goodness did they ruin him in Super. I also think...

Re: DB is not better than DBZ

I like Dragon Ball a ton, although I prefer Z, Dragonball is a lot more Goku centered than DBZ is, so I agree that criticism never made any sense. Goku beat Tao Pai Pai, beat the Red Ribbon Army, beat Piccolo Daimao, beat Piccolo Jr, basically every major moment in the show was done by Goku. Yamcha...

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

Wanting to change Roshis personality is insane, that's who he's always been. The show is fiction, Roshi being a borderline sexual predator is fine because Dragonball is not real. Freeza is a psychopathic, genocidal tyrant, which to my knowledge is worse than being a pervert. Should they change his ...

Re: Android 17 was never SSG/SSB tier in the anime ToP before the fight with Anilaza

I always thought 17s power was pretty overrated. Goku went SSB against him, but all that meant was that 17 was stronger than SSJ 2 and he needed to up his power, SSJ 3 is an obsolete form that drains energy needlessly so it makes sense that he would skip that. Against Jiren, he took a back seat to a...

Re: Dr Slump and original Dragon Ball in top 10 list for most wanted reboot shows

I'd like a spin off show more than a reboot. I think DB and DBZ have aged just fine. I'd prefer either a continuation of Super or a spin off show, maybe something focusing on the Saiyans and the Freeza empire pre Dragon Ball.

Re: Kid Goku didn't have a power-level of ten at the beginning of DB.

I think he was closer to 40-50 at the beginning of DB. You have to have him around dinosaur strength at least.

Re: Should Zamasu follow the tradition of DB villains teaming up with Goku?

Freeza didn't join Goku in the same vain as Tenshinhan, Piccolo, and Vegeta did. They were all redeemable and were evil(to varying degrees, Tenshinhan much less so than Vegeta, Piccolo somewhere in the middle) because of life circumstances and trauma. Freeza was born evil and is a totally irredeemab...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

Tenshinhan is probably asexual and he and Chaozu seem to have a very close older brother/younger brother type relationship.
