Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

How many times do we have to point out that calling Piccolo asexual isn't changing or retconning anything? It's just explicitly stating something that has been true from the beginning. Bingo. He always fit into this description. It's just now we have words that directly describe it. Do I think Tori...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

This grand statement about "Just wanting GOOD representation" and "Only Bad representation is Identity politics" line of reasoning rings hollow when there are scores of people ready to declare anything and everything "Identity Politics" at the drop of a hat. Last of Us Part II trailer showed Ellie k...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

In the meantime, LGBT+ audiences are told to eat the bare minimum we're given-- even when it sucks (which is most of the time)-- and are ridiculed for "identity politics" when we publicly voice our want for more representation. We *know* that it's up to creators... but here's a truth we all know: W...

OKAY. Who's watching Toonami? Who heard that Kai part of their line up trailer with the spoof scene? WAS THAT WAS MASAKOX AS GOKU AND LANIPATOR AS VEGETA?!

Re: Let's talk about Trunks...

Ok, I just rewatched the fight and I think people are definitely overreacting on the complaining about Trunks' power. Sure, he got some kind of boost from anger recently, as well as, I would argue a ton of Zenkais he no doubt got from the multiple beatdowns and senzu recoveries he got over this arc....

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I kinda want a Linkara super boy prime voice for Broly. Oh hell yes. I love this idea! If they keep his personality mostly intact to how it was in the original and make jokes around that, then the Linkara StupidBoy Prime voice would be perfect. If they change his personality for the humor I don't t...

Re: The Things GT Got Right

The Music was good, I'll never knock GT it's music. I did love all the opening and ending themes too, even if I consider Dan Dan more a Movie song than a GT song lol. Also, I do commend them for the thought behind trying to bring a bit of the humor and fun of DB back instead of just being all action...

Re: Official "Show off your Dragonball Crap" Thread

I would like GT bluray cases and maybe ocean dub on bluray. PROBABLY not gonna happen. The masters FUNi got of GT, along with the original DB are Digi-beta tapes instead of the film masters they got for DBZ. That's why the DVD remasters we DID get of those properties fared better than FUNi's orange...

My understanding is that it's web only for now. The chapters were honestly a surprise, they hit before Viz announced anything. Probably just hasn't trickled down to their other platforms yet.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Addendum to my unpopular opinion from earlier: Been watching more of Super. I've gotten past the Freeza arc. Still enjoying it quite a bit. I have noticed they are padding it a bit... like, they don't have to worry about catching up to the Manga.... so why is there stuff here that feels like filler?...

Re: Fan Made Dragon Box Project

How are you going to handle GT (if you are going to handle GT)? the GT singles have NEPs, but the Green Bricks have original Japanese music as an option for the dub. So basically singles are better for Japanese audio track and green bricks are better for English) Not a fan of GT TBH, so no real pla...

Re: Contentious Debates: Evidence of Worse Writing post-Name

The introduction of specific Battle Power Ratings via Scouters was one of the single biggest mistakes in the manga. I honestly feel it was born of lazy writing, and it happened in the Saiyan arc. One of the most contentious debates in the entire fanbase has been "What is ________'s Power Level? at t...

Re: So in retrospect Freeza during Namek wasn't all that str

This can really be said about ANY ongoing media like this, especially one as long running as Dragon Ball. First, Vegeta hyped himself up as the "Strongest in the Universe". Then Goku beat him, and then Toriyama needed a new big bad. If Goku is strong enough to beat Vegeta, the new Big Bad has to be ...

He got mentioned in Resurrection F and makes appearances in Super.

See, to me, the DB Dub is just as bad Acting/Script wise. It gets points for using the original music, even before the new DVD sets, but too many jokes and the like got changed. Like, even tho it was uncut and you can clearly see Kamesen'in being a perv several times from the video alone, they still...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Unpopular DB opinions?

I'm actually pretty happy with Super so far. I'm behind, still in the Resurrection F arc, but I'm enjoying it fairly well. It's still clearly Toei primarily in control, but I can feel Toriyama's hand in it, however light that may be, and it feels fun as a result.
