Re: Yeah, I prefer the name Super Saiyan Red over Super Saiyan God

I have to say this completely solves the problem of SSG on a kids Net. Would a kids network really censor "god"? I'm not being sarcastic or anything. I'm just curious. How come Super Saiyan God couldn't be used? If I'm not mistaken, whether or not it's allowed depends on the context it's being used...

Re: Is Dragonball the greatest cartoon ever?

Dragon Ball doesn't really have "series fatigue," though. There's really no point where the series just feels like it's dragging on for everything after that. Dragon Ball has "Arc Fatigue," I guess. Like, the Freeza Arc goes on waaaaaaay too long, but, after that, the pace picks up again and it's n...

Re: Is Dragonball the greatest cartoon ever?

You know, I definitely don't think Dragon Ball is "the greatest cartoon ever", but I do want to point out that most of the series that I hold in higher regard (and many other members, judging by what they've mentioned) are substantially shorter than it. A series with just flat out fewer episodes tha...

Re: Petition: Changing the planet name of Kepler 22-b to "Na

For those who think this is a silly idea and that planets shouldn’t be named after things in pop culture, I just want to mention that Kepler-16b is sometimes called “Tatooine” because it was one the first extrasolar planets discovered in a binary star system. It wasn’t something named by a petition,...

Re: Toriyama is terrible at writing intelligent characters.

A lot of the people in this thread seem to be conflating scientific aptitude with cleverness when they're two totally different traits. Absent-minded professors aren't that rare in scientific disciplines, and it's perfectly possible that Dr. Gero simply didn't think about the backup plans. I don't s...

Re: Why do You Care About Power?

I don't want to seem like a mini-mod here, but to members who are actually using this thread to discuss power in a meta sense -- in terms of how it eschews skill, or what you see as internally consistent -- can I ask that we move the focus away from that and maybe start topics about those issues els...

Why do You Care About Power?

Long time no see, Kanzenshuu! I've mostly been a lurker for the past few years, but I'm here today because I want to ask certain members of the forum an honest question. Why do you care so much about the relative strengths of characters? Why do you care so much about power levels, or battle powers, ...

I've mostly been lurking on this site for the past year, but I figured I'd chip in a bit because this thread mirrors something that's going on in my life right now.

Re: Can Dragon Ball Characters Destroy Stars?

Re: Eldritch-beings in DB

Personally? I'd rather not see them in Dragon Ball simply because I feel the series' approach to villains wouldn't mesh well with these sorts of beings. Even in comic books, as noted before, bizarre, god-like aliens are rarely defeated essentially punching them really hart, and when it happens it of...

This thread all in all seems to be really negative though, a thread about how dumb people are of silly is just meh... I don't think a lot of these comments are flat out "dumb" so much as "ignorant". Ignorant in the sense that they just don't know any better, anyway, not in an offensive way. The Pho...

I heard some DBZ fans say that Goku could beat Galactus. :/ Oh the irony -- I was actually just about to post this, almost word for word. I get it, I get it. Dragon Ball characters are strong and much of the fanbase feels the need to constantly assert that. Part of me thinks the reason that this sc...

No, no. The theory in the video was that Super Saiyan is a static increase in one's battle power rather than a 50x multiplier.

I'm not usually one for strength discussions, but I couldn't resist picking a hole in this, (I watched this video after I was redirected to it in the first link) and there's a good one in this outside of the Battle of Gods.

Re: Did Dragon Ball kill the classic Battle Shonen manga?

If I may ask, what exactly is "classic Battle Shonen?" Is it the hyper-realistic stuff like Fist of the North Star, where someone's head is exploding every panel? I loathe gratuitous violence. Not only as part of my religion, but because it can be a poor substitute for actual storytelling. If Drago...
