Re: You watched DBZ before DB and certain characters didn't make sense

In regards to your specific examples, there certainly were things to piece together, like who Karin was and why he lived in this tower that was really high in the air but below this other floating structure. The nature of Kami and Piccolo would be danced around a few times in the first two seasons b...

Goku Attracts Bad Guys? - Dragon Ball Dissection: The Cell Arc Part 17! Cell destroys himself, but he's bad at it, so Gohan has to destroy him too. Afterwards, the gang use the Dragon Balls for a hard rest, but Goku no longer approves of the status quo. Are his reasons thoughtful and thematically a...

Looks like they walked back some censorship. I have a first printing, and Oolong had the "feel her up" line.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

return and revenge of cooler are actually like really silly titles How are they silly beyond the name of the character? Given he said they were confusing, I'm assuming he means the often-touted complaint that *both* of them sound like sequels. "Return" and "Revenge" are two of the most common words...

yaaaaay! i've been hyped for this for a while, especially because i saw this movie (and almost all of the movies) for the first time recently. great as always, also was the reason for having the movie poster in the background a aesthetic choice or a way to avoid copyright ?

(Broli, the Legendary Marketing Ploy - DBD: Burn Up!! Hot Fight, Fierce Fight, Super Violent Fight)

It's finally Broli time. And, boy, was this a hard one to make, in part because I had no idea it would end up being a nearly half-hour-long video. That's crazy! But I hope you like it.

Re: Does Dragon Ball as a Franchise goes in your right Direction ?

Like ABED, I neither feel that Dragon Ball necessarily needs to or should go in the direction that I personally choose. And also like ABED, I feel very strongly it should be moving in a direction that causes it to end... again. But barring that, limiting this to only ask if Dragon Ball has moved in ...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

Please stop calling Super trash, Dragon Ball Super is objectively better than Z. It has better character development, better animation overall, best music, and the best fights. The only series that beats it is the original Dragon Ball. And yes I am being 100% serious, Dragon Ball Super is better th...

No, that fits the rainbow mafia quite well. If you can't differentiate between ideologues and individuals who happen to be something other than straight, that says more about them than anyone else. I'm fairly sure you cottoned on but are just choosing not to acknowledge it, but just in case you som...

Too bad you're still not entitled to authors inserting agendas on your behalf into their works. This just in, abnormal isn't normal. :lol: Lmao "western issues". LGBT+ folks exist everywhere in every part of the world. Diversity and inclusivity in media is a discussion that also happens in every pa...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

Block stated including LGBT+ characters would be "catering to them," and that they can find "their own show." By extension, that basically says that Dragon Ball is for straight cis people, that it is their own show, and that it is catering to them. The point was about any fan demand. Super's introd...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

So you're saying that Dragon Ball is a franchise that does cater and should cater exclusively to straight cis people? I don’t think it belongs (necessarily) in Dragon Ball. I don’t see how this series, of all things, “caters exclusively to straight cis people”... or to much of anyone for that matte...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

You could argue the same for Piccolo. Why would anyone trust him other than Gohan during the Saiyan Arc? As far as the vast majority of the cast goes Piccolo is still a villain by the time the Saiyans arrive. Not really. Let's compare the two during the same time period. By the time Nappa and Veget...

No I don’t see why people have this idea that a show like dragon ball needs to cater to x,y or z

Go find some other show for that or make your own.

While I can see why you're not particularly moved about the 16 sutff, one thing that surprised me was that you didn't bing up Mr. Satan's roll in getting the head there. It is something I plan to bring up later. This script was so tightly focused on Gohan it did not flow at all to shift gears to Mr...

We jiren also had so what’s the issue. I have no idea what this means. I think he meant to say "Which Jiren also had," as in, Geran also has presence.

jiren is like ivan drago really but it is story a bit old with the current time but if it fulfills its function I'm afraid I can't quite see that comparison.
