Re: My final thoughts on Gohan's level of SSJ vs. Dabra.

It seems very obvious that was he just Super Saiyan. I trust Toriyama's art way more than his writing. However, him being just Super Saiyan is so silly I just ignore it and say he was SS2.

Kai being broadcast in the US with it's original soundtrack intact could be why this happened in the first place.

Which might explain Kai ending prematurely. I can't imagine it would have been a small settlement.

Speculation, of course.

Re: Trunks form when he defeated Cell (and the future androi

I think Cell only had to absorb a bunch of humans because he reverted back to his larval stage to go back in time, and then had to regrow all over again. I reckon he was strong enough to absorb #17 and #18 when he emerged fresh from the lab, and reverting weakened him.

Looking for a particular Toriyama quote about Trunks.

The one where he says that if he'd known the story would continue beyond Cell he would have found a way to keep future Trunks involved with the story. I'm sure I remember reading it and I'm half sure it was a reliable source, but I can't find it anywhere now.

Is it real or not?

Re: Toriko animated series takes Kai's timeslot in April?!

Also, what happened to all those people who think the series should have ended at the Cell arc anyway? This is the biggest reason I don't want Kai to end with Cell. All those people will just take it as proof that the Boo arc should never have happened and that Cell was Toriyama's true intended end...

Re: "Dragon Ball SD" Coming To Saikyō Jump (UPDATE: Confirmed)

Obviously it ignores the original story since Goku has the kintoun before he's even met Muten Roshi.

Piccolo didn't want Gohan to die because he cared for him. What more do you need?

Re: Is this how Kai should of looked?

Wouldn't object to completely new animation, but I wouldn't want it looking like that at all. I'd prefer them to do what they did originally, and try to match the style of the manga.

I don't mind it. As cumbersome as it might sound, I would just prefer it to be translated though.

It only comes up once. I'd rather just have it translated there in the speech bubble than in a footnote.

Re: Gods with "sama"-honorific treated as full names in Viz?

I would like attack names translated because it would just sound more natural to have it in English. A character's name, or a place name, can be anything. I've never wondered what "Manchester" means, or even wondered if it means anything at all. Same with names. I know they can have meaning, but kno...

Re: Gods with "sama"-honorific treated as full names in Viz?

As far as I'm concerned, a translation should make it sound as though the work was written in whatever language it's being translated to. If it's being translated into English, it should sound like it was originally written in English. Some things might be lost, but I'd rather that happen than for t...

Re: Magical Being Boo - Necessary or Not?

I agree with the first reply. The Boo arc is basically the Cell arc, but actually fun and entertaining. For a while at least, Bootenks onwards I don't really like. Overall though it felt like a parody of the Cell arc, which is what was great about it. The Cell arc is the epitome of what people stere...
