Re: Why does the OG Dragon Ball gets so little love from TOEI / BANDAI etc

I said something similar to this and got bashed at another topic, but I still think this firmly: Original Dragon Ball needs a reboot and one that has to be "cleaner". The reality is DB came out in 1986 and it was for a japanese society of that time. The world as it is today would never accept Roshi...

Glad I'm not the only one who missings white Fury. The Sam Jackson is a good version, but the white one is a very different beast of a bastard. When it comes to race lifts, they know what their doing. 99% of the time, you're trying to gain favor with that race and hopes that you'll gain more ______...

Re: Stupidest thing Frieza has done

Up until Goku became the Super Saiyan, Freeza and his father were the two most powerful beings there were, barring Majin Buu and the Destroyer. No one else was anywhere near being able to actually challenge him. I was never a fan of King Cold telling Freeza not to fight Majin Boo or Beerus, both sh...

Re: Parts of Dragon Ball that you avoid showing to children as a parent or caretaker

Especially with the filler of Z, I wouldn't want kids watching Roshi throw himself onto Marron... Wait, but that would make Roshi a pedophile! ...in the Garlic Jr saga. Oh phew 18 would have your neck for a mistake like that. The only thing holding me back from showing my kids Dragonball would actu...

Re: Misanthropic themes in Dragon Ball and other Toriyama work

there’s nothing in it to suggest that the Zen-Ohs put together the tournament as a test. It was purely for their own amusement. In the anime wasn't the idea of a tourney mostly from Zen-oh finding out about the U6/U7 fights and deciding to throw a much bigger one for funs, then put everything at st...

Re: Misanthropic themes in Dragon Ball and other Toriyama work

I don't think that's what he meant. Marvel and DC have supreme gods who are apathetic or neutral since they're not intervening in every major threat but Zeno destroyed six universes in the past only because he felt like it. Maybe he enjoyed the tournament enough not to do it again but it all depend...

Re: Misanthropic themes in Dragon Ball and other Toriyama work

Having a god at the top makes sense given there's a hierarchy that's long since been established and having him be apathetic explains why he didn't step in to stop threats like Buu. I don't think that's what he meant. Marvel and DC have supreme gods who are apathetic or neutral since they're not in...

Re: Misanthropic themes in Dragon Ball and other Toriyama work

The entire character of Beerus is treated as a joke. He threatens to destroy the earth on the smallest slight and is then placated with sweets. You don’t have to tell me that Beerus’ antics are played for laughs. I’m aware of that. I’m just personally tired of his shtick at this point. Regardless, ...

Re: Dragon Ball anime if it was done today as a seasonal anime

on the topic of a remake it would be really nice to get a "Kai" version of DB. A lot of people that I know who watch the OG DB sometimes get turned off from the slow and dragged pacing and move on to the Manga instead . A seasonal anime would be a great idea too especially for the future of DB. Kud...

Re: Is it actually ever revealed how the Androids got so strong while being human?

Shouldn't never getting tired or running out of energy give someone a huge advantage? Even the Saiyans get tired and take long breaks, eat, sleep, etc... I mean, technically, couldn't #17 have been training on the island literally 24/7 since Cell was defeated? I suspect sleep would be unnecessary a...

I have no interest in adding to the hostility or coming across like I don't want them here, but sometimes I wonder why FUNi fans congregate here at all.

Re: Cell Jrs make no sense

Did Cell lose any stamina when fighting Goku? If yes, wouldn't having to regen half his body, plus any other injuries and wear and tear sustained during the fight be enough to slow him down. Just keep in mind that, this topic has put more effort into this aspect Cell than the writer of the characte...

Re: Goku is a disaster as a father, according to Akira Toriyama

So you think Goku vs Frieza lasted hours as well than right? There is not time given on how long SS3 Goku fought Buu. Goku fights with Buu to distract them from K' Trunks. Are you saying the fight could protentially have taken hours and hours fro Trunks to find the radar? No you said we saw how lon...

Re: Goku is a disaster as a father, according to Akira Toriyama

It is never stated how long Goku fought Fat Buu, but do you think Majin Vegeta would have lasted as long. Like I said the two fights before don't make a difference. Goku should have fought with Gohan or let Vegeta take over. Giving Gohan a turn in the condition he was in was playing with fire and e...

Re: Goku is a disaster as a father, according to Akira Toriyama

I know that's not how the saiyans work, my whole argument is Goku and Vegeta make things worse and put their families in danger. The two fights are not important, Goku and Vegeta both say Dabra I'd about as strong as Cell and Goku knows Gohan is weaker and has been slacking. He should have either l...
