Re: Stupidest thing Frieza has done

It's tempting to say trying to blast Goku at the end of their fight, but at least you can understand that his emotions have gotten to him there.

His first two trips to Earth, though? Pre-meditated stupidity.

Re: Do You Have a Different Favorite Arc than You've Had in the Past?

I'm kind of in the opposite camp, I LOVED the Namek stuff as a kid, especially the intense battle against Freeza. I still enjoy it, but rewatching it as an adult made me realize just how drawn out it was at times, hell one episode was basically a clip show that only existed so the anime wouldn't ge...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

Didm't Piccolo's voice Mr. Furukawa say that he finished recording? doesn't this happen if the movie is already complete? Dubbing for traditional animation usually happens against fairly complete animation in Japan, since they can't adjust the timing of the visuals again afterward. (Conversely, in ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Thread: "Super Hero"

By that I just assume that some event from the current arc might have an influence on the movie. Realistically, that seems unlikely, as all odds are the film was conceived and even wholly scripted before the current arc was finalized. More likely, the Granolah arc was plotted in such a way as to no...

Re: King Piccolo or Piccolo Jr; Which was the better arc?

Also, what you said about Jr. being a more nuanced character (despite Daimao being my favorite villain, although I guess you can say Jr. ties with him for me) is on-point. I like to think that, being a reincarnation, this new Piccolo's attitude is born partially from knowing he can't afford to unde...

Re: Do You Have a Different Favorite Arc than You've Had in the Past?

Absolutely. As a kid/teen, I would have sworn by the Cell arc, which was my proper introduction to the series, after catching the end of the Namek arc in reruns. Getting back into it in late high school, I probably would have made the case that it never got better than Namek, and probably should hav...

Re: King Piccolo or Piccolo Jr; Which was the better arc?

Surprised to see so many votes for Demon King Piccolo here. For me, the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai handily takes it in both mediums. The first Piccolo arc is an exciting tonal shift, to be sure, but you can really feel the growing pains in the series introducing its first supervillain-centric arc. The r...

Goku suggests all Vegeta did was master the bursts thing, but some people think Vegeta ough to have powered up as well. I perso...

Is he wearing the pants in the movie?
The final film denies us this NSFW scene in favor of having Freeza mysteriously exit the regeneration chamber with his speedo and armor intact.

So, if you want, I suppose storyboard-only nude Freeza is Non-Canon (tm).

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

Now that we talk about Bardock, what are the odds that they will tie DBS to Heroes ? As long as this is still a Toriyama-helmed story, I'd venture basically none. I would personally welcome Towa and Mira being re-appropriated into Super though, since they're already Toriyama villains and they're fu...

Mentions Yajirobe's anime-only death causing consistency issues with the TV version of Super : "Huh, okay. Did not expect that to be brought up."

A couple of things: 1) The scene that prompted this thread aired ... what, three years ago?

They're briefs. We get a fully nude Freeza in the storyboard book included in the special edition Japanese home release of "F."

IS he using Blue UI in the latest chapter? If he is, then I was simply mistaken. I've been under the impression he was just in his normal Blue form.
