Re: The stakes couldn't be higher yet there is no tension at all

There would be a heck ton of tension If It was Movie Toei Goku in there instead of Modern Toei Goku, trust me. He'd be taking everything serious, yet he'd be concerned over all the other innocent people / universes getting erased and try to prevent it. He'd shout "NO, DON'T DO IT XENO!" And have a ...

Re: Dragon Ball and "Feminism"

It doesn't really matter, because even if they didn't have a holy book, bad people would just find some other excuse to commit evil. You're right, but as we see, mentioned books are often the main reason of violence. Well, understanding that requires you to understand history...and Islamic history ...

Re: Dragon Ball and "Feminism"

I don't know how this discussion drifted to Islam, but let me just say this: Religious people who are generally good will use the good things in their holy books to justify their actions, and do their best to ignore the bad things. Religious people who are generally bad will use the bad things in t...

Re: GT vs. Super: Which is more damaging to the series' image?

If you can't look at the two productions objectively then I really can't help you. It doesn't take a whole of intellectual analysis to see that they are night and day. This time around Toei put the animators on such a tight schedule with little regard to how it's going to end up while stringing alo...

Re: GT vs. Super: Which is more damaging to the series' image?

Ratings =/ quality. I think the obvious argument here is that Super has objectively lowered the standard for the franchise going forward (and you can make the same argument for GT, but GT was at the end of Z's lifespan..), which is very damaging if you're not one for eating up anything TOEI throws ...

Re: GT vs. Super: Which is more damaging to the series' image?

Lol, "damage".

A recent episode of Super just surpassed One Piece in ratings. If that's the sort of damage Super is doing to the franchise, I sure hope it keeps doing it!

Re: DBS writer confirms Roshi isn't explicitly stronger than Tien.

If you were to judge, solely from everything we've seen since before ressurection f movie, manga or arc, then yes. He was one of the few guys chosen to train with Korin. If Roshi has been training all this time, in secret, who's to say Yajirobe hasn't? (both characters were portrayed as equally lai...

Re: Is there really a problem with "freeloading complainers"?

Meh, don't let Kanzenshuu fool you. The vast, vast majority of people do love Dragon Ball Super. It's Toei's highest rated show along with One Piece. This place is just packed full of obsessive, powerscaling nerds who oftentimes watch pirated raws because they can't wait a fucking hour for Crunchyro...

The Grand Kaioshin was the only true Kaioshin of Universe 7, and the others were in actuality just his apprentices.

Re: Why would a pride trooper even relish the idea of becoming a destruction god ?

Like Ekrolo said, I'm pretty sure a sort of "purge the wicked so that the just may flourish" is how the God of Destruction position was intended by Zen'o to work. Those that destroy callously and carelessly are in fact lowering the Mortal Level of their universes, and are now facing the consequences...
