Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Well that's flat out wrong. After Goku got to new Vegeta there was no direct reason for Broly to relate to Goku other than the proven fact of Paragus words that the strings of destiny fated both of them to meet again. Anything else is just headcanon. Well, you're not wrong. However, the way the mov...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Another I have noticed. The kickvic side has women telling their personal stories to defend their statement. Vic has said nothing to argue these stories false instead of trying to find proof to defend Vic the IstandwithVic is instead attacking and trying to devalue these women. That tells me a lot ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

First, there was no reason to fight Goku cause the movie explicitly stated [in the scenes I showed you] that Goku's power just AWAKENED Broly's Legendary Super Saiyan. That's all . Despite Paragus finally gaining control over Broly, Goku's powerful presence stirred Broly's instincts. The story didn...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Jesus Christ, why are people so aggressive to use the step-ladder to reach the moon to defend the indefensible? It reminds me of case a few days ago where people are breaking their backs trying to reach in defending Liam Nesson, after he revealed he scorched the streets looking for a random black gu...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Your memory is wrong or you guys watch the terrible Dragonball Z dub. Paragus explained to Vegeta that Broly's goal was the total destruction of the universe. That's why Paragus was missing an eye and needed the control device on Broly. This is way before Kakarot came on the scene. Not to mention, ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Perhaps people don’t like that kind of character, so they fetch whatever tack on as an improvement, which is fine, but I don’t see this Broly having any more personality than the original. It’s more or less the same… perhaps even less so. I'm baffled that anyone could come to this conclusion. He is...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

I think that entire part wasn't that interesting in the first place since it feels... slow? I don't know how to put it into words It feels that way because it's an extraneous setpiece, unfortunately. Pretty setpieces mean nothing to me if they contribute nothing to the plot. Setpieces justify their...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Just saw the film. The film is good in terms of animation, but on the narrative side, it is a bit confusing. The film attempts to display Broly’s tragic story (even though Broly’s story was tragic already in his original film), but it does not do enough to highlight those tragedies. It seemingly sh...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

I remember the previous 2 "sagas," yes. Both were executed on a level far above the anime's rendition of them and can stand on their own when compared to non-Toei-Dragonball works. I'd say the manga's previous 2 arcs could go up against any of the shit you find in Jump and win, while the Super anim...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Cheelai’s behaviour was quite confusing, but I doubt her role was to have the audience side with her. Her questionable choices are part of her character, and what she did for Broly was because she had a sympathy for him and disliked how Paragus treated him. She’s also probably a morally grey charac...

While those are interesting interviews, I failed to see an concrete connection that Caulifla and Kale's existence is align with the interest of oversea fans. Dragon Ball Room oversees the continuation of the franchise. In that first interview, its section chief specifically mentions that Broly is m...

I can never keep up the discussions in this thread; however, it does provide some amusing entertainment value seeing an interesting discussion devolves into a “you’re wrong”/“no, YOU’RE WRONG” shouting contest.

[*]I Again, “Canon” simply means work by the original author. That’s what the word literally means. There are no ifs and buts, Gogeta is now being written by Akira Toriyama, and therefore, as far as the dictionary’s rules go, Gogeta is canon. What part of it do you not understand? It’s just a word. ...

Do you think Dragon Ball dub would have benefit from an English Recast?

In other words, do you think the English dub of Dragon Ball (Funimation) would have benefitted from a complete recast of genuine voice actors during Dragon Ball Kai run, or a complete shift from the company to another dubbing studio altogether? This thought pop in my mind when I was watching the Bar...
