Re: Should the series introduce God forms for other races?

I would've liked for them to be given to the other races to begin with. I know this is the "Saiyan Show", but giving Piccolo or Tenshinhan or something some kind of edge that would make them competitive would've been nice. Especially Piccolo who still fights despite always getting his ass kicked. :c...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

Nothing at all. The original version of the character was already overexposed a decade ago, let's not do the same with the new and improved version.

Re: Was Vegeta virgin before Bulma?

I think the line of thinking that Saiyans generally don't have much interest in sex beyond procreation makes a lot of sense. I don't think there's ever been much of an example of a full-blooded Saiyan that we've seen that had much interest in a relationship in general, much less sex. In Vegeta's cas...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

The singular purpose of "modernizing" the series existed during the mid-late 90's, and only if you are a corporation whose sole goal with marketing the series is to target young kids. There's no evidence that the Faulconer soundtrack had any effect whatsoever on its popularity. I don't remember, as ...

Re: Who Else Has the Potential to Turn 'Good'?

Any of the Ginyu guys, really. Ginyu himself, Jheece and Butta never really struck me as being bad characters. Circumstances and loyalty to Freeza put them against Goku & co., but otherwise they seem relatively "normal" and not psychopathic or anything. Dabura too. He had Babidi turn against him. He...

Re: Will Goku and Vegeta ever surpass their current Gogeta, and Vegetto?

I'm sure if there's another big revival on the level of 2015, we'll get new forms or upgrades that make UI look like a joke. Base Vegetto used to be the gold standard, second only to SSJ Vegetto. Now Blue Vegetto would be shrugged at by half the major fighters in Super. Although UI is a high bar to ...

Re: How did you feel the first time you saw Bulma's panties in Dragon Ball?

This was close to 20 years ago so I was probably around ten. I actually had fairly early exposure on the internet to the Japanese, "uncensored" side of things... primarily through Greg Werner's DBZ Info Page ( wtf it still exists ). I liked girls but I was probably too young to "appreciate" panties ...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

I've long been of two minds about TFS. On one hand, I can't deny how well done it is, and they've had a lot of genuinely funny moments. I generally don't get much out of the popular memes, but there are some really good moments in it. On the other hand, I feel like it has subplanted a chunk of the D...

Geez, this is nothing but a really absurd decision. I'm going to send a protest letter to Dragon Ball Room in Shueisha. I'm not joking. Please do. I don't mean to be dramatic but I find this all kind of sickening. There's a very specific charm to seeing those (correct) spellings of things. If anyth...

Re: Is being attracted to a Dragon Ball character considered weird?

I think it's pretty typical, really. I've heard plenty of normies even, talk about finding Jessica Rabbit or Jasmine from Aladdin hot. One of my friends who's as normal and typical as they come often talks about how hot he finds Cammy from Street Fighter, so I'm certainly not one to judge and sexual...

Re: Which series has better powerscaling, GT or Super?

I think they're equally flawed in their own ways. GT's powerscaling was based on time... it had been five years since Buu, so somehow magically everyone's power increased proportionally, despite lack of training or minimal training. Super's was better on the whole I think, but it was responsible for...

Re: PlayStation 5 and the future of DBZ games..

I'm just hoping moving forward they lean more on the Arc System Works-ish graphics in terms of going whole hog with trying to replicate an actual hand-drawn animation style rather than that "vague approximation which looks the way only a video game would". Because, honestly, Kakarot looks good gamep...

Re: Could a Xenoverse 3 in the works?

Dimps seems too focused on pumping all their energy into XV2. If another game was in the works all this new content could have easily been saved for a sequel release. Doubt a 3rd one is coming. They could probably devote a small team to focus on DLC while XV3 is worked on--or, there's no reason the...

I dunno, it really is difficult to imagine anyone else playing the Son family. However, I would be shocked if there isn't a shortlist of names to replace her, or even an understudy.

Independent of whether these particular rumors have any credibility to them, I actually see another attempt at live action Dragon Ball as an inevitability.

Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

His speaking voice is, well, fine, I guess. But the screaming is just pathetic. A far cry from Bin Shimada, who actually sounds scary , even in his speaking voice. Definitely someone you don't want to fuck with. I think this comparison sums it up pretty succinctly: Mignogna scream: https://www.youtu...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

As others have said, Japan still has different sensibilities to the West, so basically what we’re talking about is FUNimation and other regional dub studios taking it upon themselves to heavily edit said content as they see fit. That feels more 2002 than 2019. Besides, what we’re talking about is th...

Surely Vic's sins don't absolve everyone elses'. Would you be more outraged by their action if not contrasted with Vic's? I'm not blaming you, I genuinely think it's difficult to see both issues without the waters being muddied.

Re: I'm done with the dub UPDATE

It really is a good decision. My eyes were opened all the way back in the early 2000's when I read online about how much the dub had changed things from the original. I also downloaded some low quality MPEG's of the Japanese version with the different music and dialogue--it endlessly intrigued me an...
