Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

You're hearing them. You looking into and learning about them. People inevitably learn this shit. It inevitably comes down to "oh, this character I identify with is played by a person completely different from them. I guess they don't exist in real life or get to portray themselves in media!" The c...

Re: Do you think the Cyborgs should have looked more mechanical

All Cyborg designs can be divided into pre-cyberpunk and post-cyberpunk. Cyberpunk itself refers to the style of using mechanical designs to create a distinctive looking lifeform that combines machinery and nature, which came into vogue around the 1990s thanks to the GHOST IN THE SHELL anime film. ...

Re: What does Vegeta find funny?

I remember in the Buu Saga, Goku ate a big meal just before the tournament. Goku says, "Man, I'm stuffed! Whoever I'm fighting, please don't punch me in the gut." Then Vegeta replies, "Okay. If I fight Kakarot in the first round, first thing I'm going to do is punch him in the gut." It was probably...

Re: Who could Frieza's buyers be?

Yeah but he doesn't have to kill them to conquer them. Plus don't they usually kill everybody on the planet when they take it over to sell it? The most useful minions are the ones who WANT to work for you. Captain Ginyu, for example. Besides, Freeza's lazy and arrogant. He doesn't like doing anythi...

Re: Who could Frieza's buyers be?

Probably Disney. Though the whole thing seems weird, if he can just conquer everything why bother? Just something to do? He's a mastermind, not a destroyer. Killing people is a fun pastime, but his true passion is controlling them. Living in the lap of luxury, with servants and culture and technolo...

Re: How Powerful Was Freeza Supposed To Be On Namek Originally?

Wait.. That doesn't make any sense. Cooler and Frieza both unlocked a 5th form. Frieza and Cooler managed to create fifth forms "the Saiyan way" by training themselves up, but I'd say it's probably not a natural ability for their species as they are freakishly strong mutants after all. Nevertheless...

Re: Could A Fusion Of Bardock & King Vegeta Have Defeated Freeza?

So going by statements in the show and guides is baseless but going by a guides statement about a different form of fusion that was contradicted in a later show makes sense??? But you are not going by "statements in the show and guides". You are seemingly going solely by what Vados said while at th...

Re: Could A Fusion Of Bardock & King Vegeta Have Defeated Freeza?

The addition part is because its 2 people fusing. So it literally comes from nowhere and it's more of a headcanon? Alright, good to know. You could leave it out if you really wanted to. Which is the right thing to do since no official statement supports this "addition" as part of the equation. The ...

Also I never said it was just addition. Then my question above goes to you too. I would like a source that states addition is even part of the equation. Vados says it in Super around when Kefla shows up. Ah, that one . I don't know how reliable is this subtitle, but even if that's the case, It's li...

Re: Could A Fusion Of Bardock & King Vegeta Have Defeated Freeza?

If the guide only mentions Potara I would lean toward it only talking about Potara especially since it came after Metamor. I don't know what "X coming after Y" has anything to do, but anyway. If fusee x fusee can't defeat their enemies, it's not fusee + fusee that will, considering addition general...

Re: Could A Fusion Of Bardock & King Vegeta Have Defeated Freeza?

The guide describes Potara fusion, yes, but it doesn't mean it can't be used for the Metamoru fusion too. Multiplication is used for other transformations and even techniques like Kaio-ken, it stands to reason is the same for Metamoru. And no, as far as I know, it hasn't been contradicted. If the g...

Re: Could A Fusion Of Bardock & King Vegeta Have Defeated Freeza?

Wasn't the power level times power level thing only ever related to potora fusion? And wasn't it contradicted by other statements anyways? I thought fusion dance was said to be something like 10s of times stronger and in another spot said to be a greater increase than Super Saiyan. So highball estim...

Arcsys announced they are going to move their newest Guilty Gear over to rollback netcode. Hopefully they make a good one and use it if they make a DBFZ2.

Re: Thoughts on a potential Netflix series.

I think DB works better animated. Positive side of a series over a movie is they could work on story telling more with longer run time, down side though is it would probably have less budget for fight scenes. But maybe they could go big with it and get some good fight choreography. New Star Treks ha...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I hate this game. I love this game. I felt like I've reached new level in my abilities as a player. Was feeling accomplished, and then not only did I get bodied, I was shown two new things I've never seen before. The first was being combo'd into a lv 1 or lv 3 special. And no, the previous attack w...

Looks like someone got some clips of Bosch actually talking for the role instead of just the screams, so we have an even better idea of how he sounds now. I'm liking it. Still super curious how he'll sound as classic evil Broly though. Sounds a bit too Ichigo for me to separate that it's Johnny, bu...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

There's so much great stuff in DB, I don't know why anyone would intentionally skip it. It's a pet peeve of mind when people feel little to no desire to go back and watch it. Even "I'll get around to it" bugs me, especially when I read it from people on this forum. But unless they make tons of movi...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Regular DB covered a lot of stuff, but there wasn't really a recap of it for all the people that started with Z and that worked fine. I mean, not really. Script changes in the dub aside, skipping Goku's childhood means you miss out on how much of a manchild he can be, not to mention where his passi...
