Re: What was happening in the Dragon Ball series around your birth?

The day after I was born, manga chapter 246 was released, introducing Kewi on Planet Freeza #79. The day after that , Dragon Ball Z episode 23 (or as I like to call it, Dragon Ball episode 176) aired. Fittingly, my favorite character (Tenshinhan) kicks ass in it, but it is also the episode of Yamcha...

Re: Is Korin giving Goku the magic water a gag?

I imagine this was just Toriyama going "Ummm let's see how do I make Goku strong enough to beat Piccolo... Oh, I know, there was REAL super duper water all long. Yep. Sure. Let's roll with that."

Re: Your ONE favorite character and your ONE favorite version of him/her

Members being named Son_Gohan, WhisPL or VegettoEX don't necessarily mean they have Gohan, Whis and Vegetto as their respective favorites in the end. But sometimes at least, it does correlate and shows that even with years going by and tons of new characters/appearances being added, they still have...

Re: Your ONE favorite character and your ONE favorite version of him/her

If I had to pick just ONE favorite it would be Tenshinhan, but it's really hard to pick a favorite "version" of him. I guess it would be the Piccolo Jr / Saiyan arc look, scar and all.

Re: Did the franchise ever POSITIVELY affect you?

Absolutely it has! - I met one of my best friends on a forum about the Game Boy Color game Legendary Super Warriors; - Toriyama's artwork has been a major inspiration for me, and his masterful panel layouts have taught me a lot about comic-making; - My affinity for language has spurred me to embark ...

Re: What was the point of the large guard that Daimao kills inside King's castle?

I'd say the point of the character is to make the King realize that fleeing - something he'd really rather not do - is his only option because neither guns nor big brawly dudes can stop Piccolo.

Re: Long Battles

Thank you, Cipher, for posting exactly what I was thinking but couldn't quite put into words. Most of the fights have a sort of ebb and flow to them, as though they live and breathe. A story is being told while the fight is going on. The characters are going through things, not just punching for the...

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...

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.

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.

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...
