Re: The "Team Four Star" actors were blacklisted by Funi and Toei rumor

Makes me wonder if maybe, by some legal quirk, DBZ is considered a public domain show in some small corner of the earth. To say that's unlikely is of course an enormous understatement. I mean, there are certainly countries that don't abide by otherwise-recognized international copyright law. See: S...

Re: Black history month: Who is your favorite black DB character?

Also I just opened one of those links Mike posted up there and immediately noped out of it. What kind of title is “Why black men love DBZ”? That’s quite stereotypical and generalizing. What are they going to do next, “Why white girls love MHA?” (It wouldn’t surprise me if they already did it). Auth...

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

Can someone tell me what it says below the image of Gohan? Also does someone have the full length of this page? I really have to question if you're reading the responses here. Again, this image is (very clearly) cut off in the area you're asking about, so no-one would be able to read/translate it i...

I don't get it.

Re: Black history month: Who is your favorite black DB character?

In no way do I want to either appear to be, or actually engage in, explaining things back to its audience, but the Piccolo and Black community identification thing is something I have read about as long as I've been a fan. Here are a couple articles I've noted from recent history (more largely talki...

Translation? What are you specifically looking to learn about and for what purpose? Furthermore, these images are a combination of tiny, cropped, and/or unreadable. I'm sure we have the original source material, but you give us literally nothing to go on here. The more information you can give, the...

Re: Everything Wrong with Dragon Ball Super

Isn't it weird that DBS manga and DBS anime are written for the same audience, but one gets more complain than the other? What about DBS anime to DB and DBZ/DBZ Kai, how is it that DBS was getting more complaint than its past counter parts? Even now people still complain about DBS. When DBZ BoG, DB...

So basically what OP did at the beginning when he pretended to speak for everyone and said stuff like "we all watched Super for ep. 130", yet you said nothing then. Interesting how this works. I did indeed make a post in response to the OP earlier in this thread. It's right on the last page : More ...

See, when I say that the haters can't even agree on what they want to complain about, I mean it. The issue is yours: you’re conflating different folks’ different opinions on different issues into a singular hivemind boogeyman that doesn’t exist. The actual truth of the matter is that everyone holds...

Re: Isn't the Super Saiyan transformation just a rip-off of Launch's gimmick?

This is brought up fairly often, but the fact is that Lunch was written out of the story looooong before Toriyama would have any plans for the Super Saiyan transformation. Plenty of characters were created and discarded over the course of the series, so there’s nothing there that should or could sug...

Re: Westerners love to claim Asian characters.

I guess one big issue I take with your post, OP, is that you attempt explain a whole bunch of things... but don't really relate a whole lot (any?) of it back to your thesis(?) in the subject line. Some of the things that SOUND like you're going to relate back... well, you never actually do, so I'm n...

Moving this over to the "Dragon Ball Super" sub-section. More than anything else, I would encourage people to not necessarily be so hyperbolic with their statements.

Re: Should Toei start making Dragon Ball "What If's" ?

Freeza having a brother is an extension of a previous plot, just as Gero surviving and creating the androids is an extension of the RRA arc. A what if would be Freeza not existing for example, or Goku somehow not dying against Raditz. You're just making arbitrary rules for what you think it should ...

Except they technically aren't. They were never labeled as such. You're splitting pedantic hairs here. They were always known to be, understood as, and accepted as "what if" stories.
