Re: Was there any backlash to the pedohilic storyline in DBS?

Super had that awful pedohilic romance which was presented as 'sweet' instead of awkward/funny. I am talking about the romance between kid Trunks who is about 8 years old and present day Mai, who is 41 years old. Yes she has a younger (childlike) body but she's still an adult with an adult mind and...

Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

What was acceptable in the past isn't necessarily acceptable today. While Dragon Ball and Z are great series in itself with great animation and fights there are some nasty points sticking out. From pedohilic tendencies of Muten Roshi to worse cases like how LGBT characters like General Blue and Otok...

Re: DBGT: General Designs/Visuals & Music Opinions

I love how they dared to take risks by altering appearances of the famous characters instead of playing it safe and let everything stay the same. I like most of the new looks, except for Vegeta's mustache which got removed pretty fast. Some of the clothing seems a bit dated but it's a fresh change o...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

I dont think using Heroes as a valid comparison works since that game's foundation are literally the PS2's Budokai models and this game is being build from the ground up.

Re: Do you have any nitpicks about the Dragon Ball franchise?

One of mine is how Toriyama is tacking on stuff to existing stuff like suddenly coming up with all kinds of explanations of events in Z and things like 17 & 18's names. It feels very tacked on.

Re: Is it time GT gets recognized as an alternate timeline rather than just "not canon?"

The real question is...who cares about canon? It's about what you enjoy, not what someone else says about what is and in't canon. Besides, making something canon doesn't particularly better in quality or make it automatically fit in the 'real' timeline. Super is canon but has a lot on inconsistencie...

Shit, awesome remixes. Can't wait to hear the one … umm … the one where evil buu was punching the lights out of fat buu. Probably my favourite DBZ theme. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghprTTzgEg8 The theme I'm talking about starts at 1:36 That is a very good pick. Luckily it's also a very common ...

Re: What do you want the next DragonBall series to be like?

Works can keep doing the things I like while also doing new things, too, like having cute moms being cute and giant preggo bellies while including cute Mommies and Daddies beating up meanies. It's obvious that you know nothing about being pregnant. Fights where miscarriages are on the line have no ...

Re: Cell's Pronouns: He/Him v. It/Its

He's a dude. He's voiced Norio Wakamoto. Goku's a man played by Masako Nozawa. Kuririn's a man played by Mayumi Tanaka. Yes, I know but while both actresses you mentioned are known for their portrayal of boyish characters, Norio Wakamoto is known for voicing large, male characters. His booming bass...

Re: Do you think Super would have benefited by holding off on Super Saiyan Blue?

That is true fo 'regular SSJG but not exactly for SSJGSSJ. It felt a bit like a palette swap, an alternate costume.
That being said, the SSJG shade of red combined with the regular SSJ hair style would look awesome.

Re: Looking for Dragon Box Blu-Ray Copy - HELP

I think you're better of doing it yourself. If the Funi and Jap Dragonboxes have the same timing it shouldn't be that big of a problem.
