Re: Where can Saiyan transformations go from here?

We haven't gotten color purple yet. Let's go for that one. Just a purple dye. Nothing fancy.

Re: Did General Blue save the RR arc?

I agree. He was funny, but also a threat due to his special powers. Really like how he was written. Plus it was refreshing to see a gay character in the show. The whole treasure hunt also added due to the experience and vibe. That being said, it does emphasize how sparsely most of the other RR membe...

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

It's not that I don't believe you but do you have some statistics to back that up? I was always under the impression that the Japanese people care less about these issues than Europe/America, especially when it comes to racism regarding foreigners. I would be glad to be proven wrong on this. Stats,...

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

Doesn’t Japanese entertainment for kids still have sexual content to this very day? It doesn’t seem like Japan particularly cares about any ethical concerns regarding exposing kids to that stuff. As Mr. Locust already said: Japan cares. In fact, fuck them in some theoretical universe where they do ...

I agree that he's an interesting character from what I've seen and read. The thing is, he would have been way more unique if he wasn't another Spider-Man but a new character with an alternate identity of his own. I might agree if we were talking about someone else, but Spider-man at this point is k...

I read some interview years ago where he said something like “When I get old I want to be one of those geezers who pretends to be senile so he can watch his granddaughter in the shower.” Extremely weird but coming from him it’s hilarious.
Actually, I think that's more creepy than funny.

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

I agree. I think that if let's say a gay character is introduced it should be a new character or an existing gay dragon ball character. (actually, do we only have Blue and Otokosuki as gay characters? At least the latter got some positive character development) They shouldn't turn characters gay jus...

Re: Android 17 was never SSG/SSB tier in the anime ToP before the fight with Anilaza

In order to enjoy Super you should forget about the concept of Power levels or any semblance of logic regarding to power increases. This not only manifests itself with 17 but also with Roshi being suddenly capable to join the fight against Frieza and then for survival after acknowledging he was too ...

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

Now you're comparing queer fans wanting better representation to something as insignificant as how a character's fucking fight scenes are written? It is the same thing, acting as if the creator of a work owes you, when in fact they don't. Based on how a lot of fans act when it comes to their demand...

What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

I love Dragon Ball but it definitely shows a cultural zeitgeist that raises some eyebrows. I don't see a reboot in the near future but when it happens, which will eventually happen, there are definitely some things that will be altered. I spoke with some friends about this, very good friends, that c...

Re: SSJ God was supposed to be “a being that surpasses everything”

The trope of "He is strong but actually looks really weak" is a played out trope that isn't fun anymore. Just because it's a Toriyama idea doesn't automatically make it good. Actually, I think he currently is a detriment to the franchise, as DB Super has shown. He hasn't the foggiest idea of what t...

Re: SSJ God was supposed to be “a being that surpasses everything”

To be honest SSSJ God Goku looked like a skinny loser. Looked even weaker than SSJ1. That's the point, it lines up perfectly with Toriyama's other strong forms, be it Freeza's final form or Kid Buu. People allways point to Buu and Frieza as having weaker looking final forms but conveniently forget ...

Re: How would you feel if Goten decided to become a woman, and Chichi divorced Goku?

Goten should get a new look (Really liked his EoZ look) and if he decides to become a woman it would surely be interesting to see how they would write for him. Would increase the amount of female fighters as well. Biggest question would be how Gotenks would end up looking and acting. Now THAT would ...

Re: GT continuation

Since the last ep of Z has a preview for GT in the 'next episode' slot with (DBZ) Goku narrating and calling it a new adventure we can pretty much take it as a direct sequel to the anime at least.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

Minorities filling minorities could become a very interesting slope. Of course, if for example Caucasian people step away from performing black characters due to authenticity etc I would expect the same from the minorities. We can't have a double standard here, no matter how talented the actor is. W...

Re: How to properly watch GT ?

Regarding the first 15 episodes. regardless of quality, how much you enjoy them is I think correlated to what you watched before you watch GT: If you watch it right after Z it is a massive tone and structure shift. It can feel like a massive step back after the intense Boo fights.we want action damn...
