Re: Anyone surprised the original run of Dragon Ball/DBZ/GT only lasted about 10 years?

The longer an anime & manga franchise goes, the worse it becomes in my opinion. I'm surprise that so many people watch Detective Conan because I hear the main character is still a kid. A show like that should have been at least 3 seasons long at max. Oof, I remember enjoying that one on Adult Swim ...

Re: Kirby Morrow, Third Canadian Voice of Goku, Passes Away

Oh jeez, I knew he sounded off during Yashahime, I didn't think it was that serious though. His voice change in Yashaime might have had nothing to do with his passing. He was pushing 50, his voice isn't going to sound the same as it did 10 years ago. I don't know about that... for most people, is t...

maybe my grammar is bad, but that statement meant Frodo starts off as an innocent Hobbit, and the ring wears on him and eventually overwhelms him but in the end doesn't completely overtake him as he leaves for the Grey Havens as the innocent hobbit we first meet.

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

It's been generally forgotten, as Masenko and Lemon said. It's still thought of poorly by most people, but the sentiments towards it have 'improved' in the sense that it's viewed with just detached apathy rather than the impassioned, seething hatred from the 90s and first half of the 2000s. Which ma...

Re: I feel like the slow pacing for DBZ in the anime and filler works to its advantage

Suffice it to say, lawd no an arc should not be 90+ episodes. Even 26 is pushing it considering that such is the length of an entire fucking series. Do you still enjoy Z then? The 23rd Budokai is the last story arc in the series which doesn't reach the 26 episode mark, and the Saiyan arc is the onl...

Not entirely on topic, but isn't Goku around 45-50 years old by End-of-Z? And close to 60 when GT starts?
There's actually only a five year timeskip between Z and GT, so he's 52 at the beginning of GT and 53 later on since about a year passes. He's 47 at the end of the manga.

Re: Could have Dragon Ball survived in the English Speaking world without Cartoon Network?

At this point, Looney Tunes are kind of like a societal night light. They're around because they're so old and familiar that people want them to always be around in some form. I think they'd reached that point by the 90s or perhaps even the 80s (I'm sure that by Who Framed Roger Rabbit, they were vi...

Re: How would you have handled the Garlic Jr. arc?

Or instead of a whole "saga" just do a bunch of standalone episodes. This sounds good to me, as much as I loved the relatively self-contained episodes leading up to the 23rd Budokai and the fight against Nappa and Vegeta. The 22nd Budokai training episodes are nice too, though I don't enjoy them qu...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

I've always had a slightly different take. I think that scouters and Power Levels in general are, when attributed to the overwhelming majority of people throughout the universe, accurate and helpful. Their accuracy just falls apart when it comes to ascertaining the strength of anyone that has an adv...

Interesting thread. Is it a form of politeness or correctness, more specifically if we don't agree or want to express our opinions without being overly attacking? Yes, I think this is the correct answer. It's normally used when saying something that could be seen as offensive or hurtful, so that the...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

3. The dub vs sub debate is extremely stupid. The only things that matter is rather or not the acting is good and whether or not the script is faithful to the source material. And btw, way too many people overexaggerate about the changes Funimation made in the 90s. The FUNi dubs (at least the origi...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

Toriyama was never forced to continue the series past Freeza (or Cell), so it’s not like he had zero passion for the stuff that came after that point. The impression I've always gotten is that fatigue was only an issue during the Buu arc, and even then only some of Buu (I sense a lot of enthusiasm ...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

Yeah, I agree. I think the Cell and Buu arcs added a lot and Dragon Ball would be a lesser story without them. In-universe, the two arcs add an additional 21 years to the story. A lot happens in that time.
