Re: Did Freeza ever say, "This is not even my final form" in canon?

The only lines I can think of that come close are Freeza telling Piccolo he can transform two more times, and telling Goku he's only using [insert number here] percent of his power. A "not even my final form" line would make most sense in his 3rd form, but by that point we already knew it wasn't his...

Re: Wiki Preview Live Stream (04 January 2021)

Couldn't make it to the live broadcast due to time zones, but just caught up via the YouTube version. Whew! That sure was a thing. About another thing. Some random thoughts first: - Way to make me drool within half a second by starting off with that banner of manga panels. - I love that Appule was a...

Re: Kanzenshuu's favorite arcs. UPDATE: The results

It's probably because the Saiyan arc has a solid, satisfying three-act structure. (Of course a contributing factor for the Saiyan and Namek arcs' popularity is also that many of us saw them on repeat several times over before we got any other part of the story) On the topic of the Red Ribbon arc's r...

Re: Kanzenshuu's favorite arcs.

Super and GT are not very fresh in my mind, so their ratings may be off, especially since I haven't read the Super manga (except for the second half of the Moro arc). From what I've heard, it's more coherent compared to the anime's haphazard nature, so if I did read the Super manga some of its arcs ...

Re: Why is Earth the only planet with a reigning God?

I always kind of saw the Eldest Namekian as the "god" of that planet, but maybe that's just because we often see them in communication with Earth's god(s) and other deities like Kaio. It's like he's on the level of "god" without officially being a god.

Re: how have battle with Cell alter Vegeta character.

At first, not much. While preparing for the Cell Games, Vegeta still seemed convinced he would be the one to destroy Cell. But during Goku's fight with Cell, Vegeta suddenly admits that Goku is beyond him. Sooo... something changed. Maybe it was simply seeing Goku in action again (who had been out o...

Re: Unanimated manga material?

The whole section of Videl uncovering the Great Saiyaman's identity was altered in the anime, so only bits and pieces of that were animated.

I like the idea of Raditz and Nappa being reincarnated as Goten and Trunks. This is moooooooooost likely not the case though.

Re: CREATIVE WRITING EXERCISE: Create your own "Tournament of Power recruitment arc" with IPs of your choosing

Let me try this with the franchise I was obsessed with before I got into Dragon Ball: the Looney Tunes. Given the random nature of Zen'o as well as the Looney Tunes, the point character could be anyone, but let's say Zen'o loves watching Looney Tunes and Bugs Bunny (1) is the most prominent one, so ...

Re: Did General Blue save the RR arc?

I wouldn´t say Blue single-handedly saved the arc (*cough* Tao Pai-Pai *cough*) but he is definitely one of its highlights. The Muscle Tower section is one of my least favorite parts of the story (though I would still rate it at least 7/10). Metallic, Buyon, and White aren't the most interesting of ...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

The potential of uniqueness in Gero and 19 in terms of moveset/playstyle is so great it's simply mind-boggling why they're yet to be added. Especially considering the story mode is so centered around characters related to Gero. Xenoverse was weird that way, too - a huge cast of characters including...

Re: DB and Nostalgia

Hard to say; the line gets blurry. My experience with Dragon Ball has been a journey of change, learning, adapting. I no longer consume the series the way I did when I first got into it twenty years ago. My journey started with Dutch subtitles on an amalgamation of multiple unfaithful English dubs, ...

Re: Can we have the ability to "Like" and otherwise react to posts?

Another forum I'm on uses 'private likes', where you can see exactly who liked/disliked your posts, and you don't see the like/dislike ratios on any posts other than your own. It's kinda nice because that way it doesn't turn into a popularity contest, and whenever someone does like your post (or whe...

Re: Is there a reason for why the DBS Manga can’t become weekly?

In order to pull off weekly releases, mangaka have to work almost 24/7. It's a gruelling, cruel schedule to force someone into. I've been drawing a comic for fun for five years now, and I can barely manage one mediocre-quality page a week, let alone a full high-quality chapter. If I went at it full-...
