I really like ramen. I didn't choose to like ramen. I consciously go into my pantry, take out a packet of instant noodles, boil water in a stove, and cook the ramen. Sometimes I eat more than I really need to eat. But I didn't will my liking of ramen.

What is true for you and even for me is not necessarily true for Cell. And in the greater scope of things, notions of objective morality don't apply. The dichotomy between good and evil, moral and immoral does not apply to a universe that is ultimately amoral. Such ideals are human constructs that a...

Dragon Ball, by Jean-Paul Sartre

This is a children's cartoon. It was published in a magazine aimed at young boys, aired at times suitable for a young audience, marketed in merchandising with products for kids. With that said, let's move on to the greater implications of this little world Mr. Toriyama has occupied our stagnant gray...

The only thing Cell is guilty of is having a stronger will to power. In a Freudian perspective on human behavior, "man is wolf to man," and with regards to this principle Cell is the ultimate realization of everything human progress has attempted to accomplish. Look at wars, genocides, prejudice, or...

Yet another post from Pinhead. I don't visit this forum regularly anymore, but I just happened to find this place in my internet favorites so I checked it out...and what do you know, I'm here again.

I just love how they showed Oolong and Puar. Not to mention Son Goku's hair. Saucy.

Looks like something people from my old school would do. I'd laugh or be shocked by this, but after being exposed to Bible-thumping, close-minded Souther Baptist for a good portion of my life, it just doesn't bother me. Oh yeah, I haven't posted here since last year. Even though it's, ya know, just ...

Niiiice. Back in the ole' fan manga thread, some of us users posted a few pages of our own stuff (I'm too lazy to check if this was already mentioned). I gave up on mine (too lazy) and was going to make a gag manga-type thing like yours, but again...too lazy.

That reminds me of this joke video my friends and I were planning on making, except it had less Dragon Ball and more freaking ninjas.

I honestly don't know. But I'd probably not like it as much as the earlier Dragon Ball story arcs.

Actually they'd be puns on Journey to the West. :P

I guess...but still, it wouldn't be a pun because a pun is a play on words, not just copying a name.

Although it is correct that Dragon Ball Z wasn't intended to happen the way it did, Toriyama had no intention of ending it before the Saiyan story arc. I mean, he had already begun the whole ordeal with Radditz by the time the dudes in charge of the anime decided to name it Z (hence the reason Toriy...

That's pretty much how unique styles are developed--finding other styles one enjoys and adding other elements and one's own twists. Isn't that how all artwork is made? So the only thing Toriyama's guilty of is developing a unique style the way unique styles are made. And, quite frankly, by the end o...

Eh, actually, Cell is not an android. Sure, he may be an android in the sense of being in the same grouping as the other Artificial Humans, but he's made up of organic matter. That's why he's able to regenerate. Plus, he was pretty much an embryo, then he matured to a larva like-thing, and he even r...
