Re: Is Toriyama lazy?

If I didn't know anything about Akira Toriyama or his work and I quickly browsed through a couple of Dragon Ball volumes, never in a million years would I assume the creator was lazy. The artwork and panel layouts are very clearly the work of a master. As someone who is making a comic and can barely...

So I listened to that bonus episode today, and... 2 hours commuting + 8 hours of working + 8 hours sleeping = where the holy Zen'ô-sama do you find the time and energy do as much as you do for Kanzenshuu? I applaud you, sir.

Re: "SDBH: World Mission" Official Discussion Thread

There are some card abilities and robot modules that give a character a chance of reviving after dying; it's how I got through that Beerus annihilation by mere accident. Unfortunately I can't remember which specific card(s) had this ability.

What does that "BR" stand for? I've tried Googling it, but haven't been able to find a clear answer.

Re: "SDBH: World Mission" Official Discussion Thread

Could someone explain to me what determines how much stamina a character starts with? Some begin with 2 bars, others with 1 bar. I thought maybe it had to do with individual HP, but then I saw a Mr. Satan with 3800 HP but only 1 stamina bar, so I must be missing something.

Delighted to hear Julian answer my questions (the trivial Gregory and "Radits" ones) as he's probably the number one guy I would hope to hear from when it comes to language-related Dragon Ball info. So thanks for that, and also for reminding me that those "Age of Wonder" versions of Dragon Ball song...

Had a random thought about "what if Pilaf actually got his wish to rule the world" - I feel like he'd accidentally make the world a better place.

Re: General Website Goofs/Errors

In the Episode Guide, the air dates for Dragon Ball episodes 140, 141, and 142 are listed as January 1988 when it should be 1989 (assuming the dates in the Arc Synopsis are correct). That confused me for a moment; from those air dates it seemed as though episode 142 was released BEFORE its correspon...

Re: What are your top 10 favorite fights in the whole franchise?

Some of these are gonna be a bit cheaty where I combine several fights into one, but my reasoning for them doesn't work as well if I separate them, so that's why. 10. Son Goku vs Grandpa Gohan (Uranai Baba) This is one of the most underrated fights in the franchise, I think. It's got neat choreograp...

Re: Characters you wish were completely removed from Super/sequels

Zen'ô, but only one of the two we see. I love the character but he's supposed to be the Omni-King, a.k.a. the god of everything, which should include "time" if you ask me. I would have preferred if there was only one of him.

Re: SSJ2 Or SSJ3... Which Should Have Been The Transformation To Have Ended The Buu Saga?

I would've liked it if Super Saiyan 3 never existed at all. That way, "Super Saiyan 2" would never have gotten numbered and instead been known as "ultimate mastery of Super Saiyan". In the Cell arc, Vegeta, Trunks and Goku all tried to master the Super Saiyan state in their own ways... but then Goha...

Re: Are all these retcons ruining Dragonball ?

Kataphrut pretty much nailed it on the head. Also, new material produced long after the original material has wrapped up NEVER "ruins" said original material, if you ask me. We still have, and will always have, the original manga and the first anime adaptation of that manga, and everything else is p...

Re: Would Goku risk his life for one random animal?

Yes, I think so. As mentioned, the pirate cave mouse is a perfect example of Goku going out of his way to save an animal's life. Also, the early parts of the story give me the impression that Goku doesn't really differentiate between life forms in a "this one is superior to that one" kind of way. Wh...

Re: What did Vegeta mean by his last words to Goku on Namek?

It is evident that the anime runs on a different script. The original Japanese script is not necessarily different between manga and anime (though the anime does add things here and there to pad out episodes). If you check out the anime scene in Japanese, you'll find that the dialogue matches up to...

Re: What did Vegeta mean by his last words to Goku on Namek?

Unfortunately, the English dub(s) and the Wiki are not the most credible sources of information when it comes to Dragon Ball. The good news is that we do have places like this (Kanzenshuu) that document everything as accurately as possible. :) For what it's worth, here is Kanzenshuu's translated dia...

Re: Favorite scene from GT?

I recently watched GT for the first time since (probably) 2003, and one episode that stood out to me was 28. When the evil Gohan and Videl turned on their own daughter, I felt so bad for Pan (I don't care how annoying you think she is, she's still just a little girl)! That scared wail from Yuko Mina...
