DBS Krillin managed to hold off a Kamehameha from Blue Goku, so at this point he's probably on Kid Buu's level
Come on, Son was holding back ;-(

Re: Why are they refusing to create a female main villain?

Probably because not many people desire to see a chick get bloodied up or have her body mutilated by Ki blasts. The only way it would pass is if a villainess happened to be a real scumbag that made Freeza look like a saint by comparison. This has never happened, not to the extent you suggest anyway...

Re: Dubs shouldnt bend over backwards to please purists. Subs shouldnt plase Casuals

I've seen many fans of the Japanese version say they refuse to watch even Kai in English, despite it being a sincere attempt at giving them what they said they wanted for years. I just don't understand the logic of fans who complained about the Z dub for years, only to say they still won't watch Ka...

Re: Dubs shouldnt bend over backwards to please purists. Subs shouldnt plase Casuals

I can completely understand why Funimation have gone back to their old approach for Super. Many of the purists who spent years rallying against the Z dub still refuse to watch the Kai dub, despite it being mostly very accurate and well acted. They literally refuse to watch anything other than the o...

Re: Dubs shouldnt bend over backwards to please purists. Subs shouldnt plase Casuals

People will put down dubs for not being the same experience as the original. Its an adaptation of it. Things change in adaptation, things are going to be diferent wether we like it or not. I don't think it's like that. Anyway, we'll never know with Dragon Ball until a proper dub is done. Making cha...

Re: Scrapped ideas that never come to be ?

Heck, I REMEMBER there being a thread on Kanzenshuu full of unused movie stuff, but I can't find it now. Turles was supposed to have some different henchmen for one, there was even a scan of it. Another one I know of is that Z Movie 12 was also supposed to have Cooler, Slug, Raditz and Nappa. https...

Re: Read this Gohan arc take on reddit. Whats your take on this?

What's with some of these brain dead responses? First of all, Son was a naïve kid when he killed the Red Ribbon soldiers, second, notice how Goku tends to spare people who are more humanoid. Let's not forget Goku's selfishness allowing strong opponents to live so he can fight them again. It's simply...

Re: Is Goku's stupidity at least partially an act?

Maybe some of it may be an act. He can be mischievous, as seen in DB when he lies on the ground when knocked down for longer than usual, then suddenly springs back up.

Re: The auto correct we never asked for, but totally deserve

Nobody is really going to care that he's called Korin instead of Karin. In english, Karin sounds too feminine a name so I can see why they changed it. That's not an argument, that's his name, Son Goku is referred to like a kid by Bulma; Son-kun. Some nuters will say Goku sounds feminine. I guess Tr...

Who do we see fail to use the Kintoun? Bulma, Kid Krillin, Roshi What do they have in common? It's their human and earthly desires that prevent them from being pure. Bulma is selfish and manipulative. She has good intentions for others but her care for herself is greater and she is willing to manip...

Re: The auto correct we never asked for, but totally deserve

Looking over at this it's a shame all the translation errors from like 1997 stuck with the dub to this very day. Unfortunately it's too late now as western fans have been using these names for over 20 years now. Still brings back memories of how localized anime had to be in the west in the late 90'...

Re: The Kinto-un and Earthly Unpure Desires

Either way, Goku black is very unpure. He literally continued torturing Trunks in a world where no one else could beat him. The kinto un isn't about conviction or intentions. It's more about desires than any of that. Goku had little desire to hurt others but Zamasu did. Granted, Zamasu thought he w...

Re: The Kinto-un and Earthly Unpure Desires

I thought about it some and.I realized that Goku is pure in that he has not Earthly Unpure Desires such as greed or interest in Sex, to the point that its implied that he never kissed Chi Chi. I thought who else could ride Kinto-Un. Could ZAMASU ride on it? Zamasu at the start could but Zamasu afte...

Re: How does he do it? What makes Toriyama so special?

He’s literally drawn Goku 10,000 times or more so after a certain point, he didn’t need the construct lines anymore. I don’t think it’s necessarily “easy” for him though. There was one interview shortly after the manga ended, and Toriyama drew a silly picture of Goku posing with the caption “looks ...

He's been drawing the character for decades now. I'm guessing it becomes second nature.
But even as seen in his sketch book, he seems to rarely use construct lines.

How does he do it? What makes Toriyama so special?

I've been looking at a video of Toriyama drawing Son Goku, and I can't get over how he does it, sure, I've seen the artist of Death Note draw, along with the one who does Nisekoi, but they all start with some kind of construct lines, Toriyama is able to go from the get go, like holy cow. Even Toyota...

Re: Who do you consider more evil, Zamasu or Moro?

Well, if you have a villain who hates mortals for their capacities for evil, sex crimes probably go without saying as falling under that purview. Plus it's not really that relevant to Zamasu's particular motivation, he's mainly concerned with violence and conflict between mortals that he has person...

Re: Who do you consider more evil, Zamasu or Moro?

All those reasons fall under the general argument that "mortals are evil and spread said evil" really. When you look at Master Roshi (especially his behaviour in Super), I'm afraid that there are sexual predators in the Dragon Ball verse too, at which point Zamasu is even more validated in his view...
