Re: The differences between Toei Goku and Manga Goku

Fuck it. Since when does something have to “invent” a term in order for it to be okay to use. Of course Simpson’s didn’t invent the usage of the word—but it’s the most popular example of this concept precisely because it’s the longest running animated series in history. So of course it makes sense t...

Re: The differences between Toei Goku and Manga Goku

And can we stop using the term "Flanderize"? Not only is it an unnecessary term, it also mischaracterizes Ned Flanders as some two dimensional caricature. No. And considering what happened to the Simpsons, which also suffered from being too popular for its own good and overstaying it’s welcome—I th...

Re: The differences between Toei Goku and Manga Goku

I've said for a while now that Goku is very concrete bound. He gets excited at the prospect of a fight and won't step in pre-emptively to stop bad guys, but when he's confronted by destruction in front of him, he will help out. Case in point, saving village elder from the Red Ribbon Army in Muscle ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Oh my god. L'il Nicky and Beardo are gonna be national laughingstocks in their field by the time this is over. It's amazing anyone could think being a vicious Twitter troll while trying to present as a "respectable professional" wasn't gonna come back to bite them sooner or later. One reputable law...

I just hope they move away from Namek soon. It's a very bland environment, one of the worst things about the whole Namek/Frieza saga actually.

Either go back to Earth or go somewhere else.
Environments have never been a strong point for the franchise.
Dragonball says hi.

Re: Vic Mignogna

This may seem like an odd comparison, but seeing how quickly YouTuber ProJared has been losing subscribers has made me even more convinced that a good chunk of these #IStandWithVic people are only standing behind him because of his religion and politics. Both ProJared and Vic Mignogna have not only...

Re: Vic Mignogna

So if you're not SURE who's guilty or innocent, fine! Just say THAT! But stop it with the "innocent until proven guilty". It's meaningless, now. Completely and utterly meaningless. The only way it would have any grounding is if you've completely forgotten about seeing his accusers as actual people ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

But there are counts that go back to the mid 2000s and his actions might be well... hmm, why did he do this? That's my 2c. Because that is the privilege afforded to a white male with some status. It's the "good ole boy" mentality: a slap on the butt, an unwanted kiss, or a protracted hug; hands whe...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I mean, yeah...? But we're talking a drop in the bucket here, especially if they recorded a bunch of them all in one fell swoop in one videography session. Vic is a big drop in the bucket. He’s fucking Broly. People would be interested in the voice actor for Broly. And people were really looking fo...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Like it or not, this is common practice in many industries. If the company cuts ties with an employee (or talent, or whatever) under acrimonious circumstances, it's super common for whatever projects they had in the works to be altered, shelved, or cancelled outright. It comes with the territory - ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

It sounds like they're going to sue Funimation for what's called "defamation per se" because of their tweets letting Vic go. In the same tweet thread, Funi said something about "not condoning harassment" which appeared to them to be implicating that Vic was guilty of harassment or something like th...

I...guess? It just felt like they threw his characterization out the window for 40 minutes and then brought it back in the last 10.
Not unlike superheroes so they can fight each other.
As someone who regurlaly reads superhero comic books.

Re: Vic Mignogna

But again, what do you think you're going to get from Vic's lawyer? Some irrefutable evidence that totally proves ALL OF THE ACCUSATIONS, not just one, BUT ALL OF THEM ARE FAKE? I mean, we're talking about accusations dating back to the early 00s. I literally posted a link (and I'm sure others have ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Why do you always have such a bad attitude when talking about this stuff man? You have so much faith in your belief that Vic is an awful human being how can you just blow off the idea that people could have faith in their belief that he isn’t that bad of a guy? It’s like you’re eager to believe tha...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Funny how that empathy doesn't seem to extend to any of the victims. (Probably because they don't have penises). Again, let's maybe stick away from this a little bit. Sexism is inarguably at the heart of a lot of Vic defense but it's not inherent. A lot of them are just gullible and want to believe...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Mooreish. I don't think you understand the fact that people tend to have a public and private persona. Meaning that how a person acts in a public setting is not necessarily the way they act all the time. Vic Mignogna is an actor. Vic Mignogna is experienced in working a crowd and dealing with the p...
