Re: Zeno ranked as strong enough to defeat Thanos

Zeno isn't "strong", he's essentially a magician that can phase whatever he wants in or out of existence. Seems like a boring pick, if you ask me. Him vs Thanos with or without Infinity Gauntlet would be stupidly dull.

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

No. Toriyama, by his own admission, has never been proficient in writing romance, which is why if it DOES appear, it's kept to a bare minimum. Off the top of my head, the only romantic-esque dialogue that I can think of is when Goku proposed to Chi-Chi, but that's honestly pushing it (actually...I ...

Re: What are your ideas for a Grand Finale saga?

Beaten by Robo. GT's ending was honestly just wonderful, a perfectly beautiful way of ending the franchise. Dragon Ball is now akin to the MCU/Star Wars. Any notion of the series having a definite ending can be safely thrown out the window. To be honest, I couldn't even give a HYPOTHETICAL ending g...

Re: Why wasn't DB Kai a completely new animated series?

I still ponder if Kai was simply a means of "testing the waters" to dictate the future of the series. If it was successful, great. We'd get new merchandise, and maybe even a new series and movies at some point! And if not, well, it isn't like Toei broke the bank to produce Kai and I'd guess the fra...

Re: Would you have liked to see a Dragon Ball Classic Toei Doga Movie?

It exists as a curiosity in my mind at best, and not much else. The visual styles between the two are just too contrasting, Dragon Ball just wouldn't mesh in that format at all, despite in THEORY them being a perfect match. That being said, I do love reinterpretations of classics, as long as they're...

Re: Is Future Trunks' SSJ2 A Form That Is Unique To Him?

Didn't Trunks actually have a line saying something like "I've never been satisfied with the power this form gives either" right before he powered up in SS2? That's the kicker that tells me it's a "beyond SS2" state instead of just simply being how strong his SS2 is. He didn't think vanilla SS2 was...

Re: Why wasn't DB Kai a completely new animated series?

It would have been too costly and time consuming given the uncertainty of whether or not such a move would even be successful. If you are Toei, and you want to release the series again, you really only have two options: 1. Do a full fledged re-animation project with new semi-new branding 2. Half-hea...

Re: Why did Toei change Broly’s hair color?

Probably to make Broly's transformation seem more unique and menacing compared to the typical SSJ transformation. Makes perfect sense from a marketing standpoint.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

What is the reaction in Japan and on Japanese forums to this mess? I assume they are even more pissed than we are. Would they? You don't tend to hear a lot of people talking about the international releases of a series unless they censor it a lot, like the 4 Kids version of One Piece, or unless the...

Those shots don't exactly give me faith about Toei's potential remaster either. Still looks shit, just less shit than what Funimation have shown.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Regardless if they're the ones doing the remaster or not, if they don't want to take heat for it perhaps they shouldn't be getting involved in the conversation to begin with. That only makes things worse. As for the set itself, I've mentioned it before but this whole situation is just so unfortunat...

At this point I'm just going to pray for the Selecta Vision remaster and mux the Broadcast Audio over that footage, if it turns out well.

A step up from 0 to 0.1 is nothing to celebrate.
