Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

I have a simpler solution: how about we keep identity politics out of some dumb kung-Fu cartoon? This is not an appropriate response. It's an appropriate response, you just disagree with it. An inappropriate response would be along the lines of "keep ideologies that promote mental illness out of my...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

Rockman.EXE, for example, for the re-airings on Kids Station, carry these warnings, due to imagery and certain terminology being considered racist and problematic. And this is a show that aired back in around 2002 or so, for the record. Now you've got me curious about this. Basically, one character...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

So, I wanna talk a little bit about this, since I'm aware how Japan has been handling this stuff for re-airings, and really, it's fairly a simple thing. Essentially the basic gist of the situation is this: Japan does not edit or censor any legacy material that is simply a "re-airing". This includes ...

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

Honestly, the problem with this whole situation is it often comes up a lot in media in which characters are turned back into a child, either through a wish, a drug (in Detective Conan's case), or they're sent back in time. Most of the time, the writers aren't thinking about the issue regarding the m...

Re: Toei Animation ruined Dragon Ball Super

I mean... 1. The animation was due to the pre-production phase being unexpected and hellish, which resulted in the animation experiencing a complete meltdown a lot sooner than most projects normally would. It'd take awhile before scheduling and stuff would kinda normalize for the series. The greenli...

Re: LGBT in DragonBall

This isn't entirely 100% true. Sexual Identity, while it's strongly tied to sexual attraction, there's also more the emotional side of things. Kids, around 8, may start questioning this sort of thing, especially if they have emotional attachments towards their male friends that goes a bit further t...

That's something people are missing here. Representation can be great for educating children and helping children with feeling okay with themselves. You make an excellent point about people with the best intentions, but something people with the best intentions do have to keep in mind is if one of ...

Re: LGBT in DragonBall

Gay man here, thought I'd chime in on this discussion. While I don't have any particular issue with Blue, I do however have issue with what Toei Animation did to his character later on (the gay = pedophile stereotype is NOT something I want to see, given it gives children the wrong idea what a gay m...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Could be great if Super switches to a more mature time slot, having more freedom to show some M for mature content again like in Z, but...maybe you've forgot two details that bring, sadly, this dream to die: 1)As far as we know, from now til October, Super could be over. If the tournament is the la...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

So, figure I'd relay something interesting to keep in mind as we head towards and get closer to October: Starting in October, TV Asahi will be moving two of their Toei shows, Super Sentai and Kamen Rider, to the 9AM hour (with Pretty Cure remaining at 8:30AM). Now, what's the significance towards th...

Re: What made you switch over to the Japanese version?

From what I remember, I had been following various fansites back in the day (remember Planet Namek?), including this site when it was originally named DaizenshuuEX, as well as DBZ Uncensored. Many of these sites had open my eyes that there were many modifications made to Dragon Ball Z, and made me w...

Re: Why isn't Schemmel in other Funi dubs besides dragon ball

Now that Super is a regular ongoing series, how do they get Schemmel to voice Goku on a weekly basis ? They probably get a lot of episodes ahead of time and just do his lines before or after everyone else. Super just aired its 23rd episode on Toonami while Japan already has 97 so they probably at l...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

I'm new to this discussion but I've been reading some of the posts. The rankings are comparing DB Super with other shows from other time slots right? Hows DB Super compared to other the other shows in the same time slot? Maybe I'm overly worrying but I want DBS to have as much chance to extend past...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

To kinda chime in to an earlier discussion about Sazae-san. The only other anime that used to be able to revival that show was Detective Conan, where it used to be able to pull in roughly the same numbers, and once in awhile, actually beat it. However, Conan's popularity is no where near where it us...

Re: Is the DB Super 100 episode rumor false?

It's not possible there has been no tv show in the history of television series that has been given a green light for 100 episodes it doesn't work that way every show starts off with few episodes if they start off on a good note then the series gets more seasons or episodes..... Provided I'm not re...

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

Unless they plan on having the U6 arc being a very short arc then I don't see how that's possible. The RoF arc is likely to be around the same length as the BoGs arc (12 episodes), which means that arc won't end until late December and that's IF no breaks are taken. Certainly doesn't make sense for...
