Re: Dragon Ball and its priority in your life

This topic rather confuses me, especially given the follow-up posts the creator of the thread has made. Namely, it confuses me that the author asks whether people prioritize Dragon Ball over more important elements of real life (seemingly implying he is worried about this in his own life), and when ...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

Those first 53 dubbed episodes were every bit Funimation's product as all the material with the in-house cast that followed it. If you hire someone to paint your house it's still your house, the painters are just hired guns. I almost quite literally spat out my cereal upon reading this because I us...

Re: What do you guys think of Mai being paired up with Trunks?

Thank you for sharing this. However, if I recall, this was bonus material in the tankobon. And that brings me to an important point too: if I need ancillary material to understand a story, the story is broken. Your story doesn't get credit for it if you don't put it in your story. God, even DB Minus...

Re: What do you guys think of Mai being paired up with Trunks?

When I saw BoG, I was totally on board with that part of the story. As has been said, Trunks is into her there, not the other way around. Clearly my memories of Super are a bit faded here because, well, the show's just not all that memorable. But I do seem to recall as the series went on, it went in...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 9/2/19!)

It isn't exactly Dragon Ball Dissection, but I did put out a video discussing Dragon Ball Z season 3 in the U.S., as we've reached its 20th anniversary, and it's one of the more infamous turning points in dubbed DB history. It's in a similar vein to the video I made last year about my favorite edits...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

Except that I don't think it has proven that point. 4 and 11 keep coming up constantly, and even your last sentence is good evidence of my point. Sometimes I feel I should never make conciliatory gestures towards you because you seem to take it as a "gotcha" moment. My last sentence was indeed conc...

I'm gonna go ahead and need a source on M10 being "fresh" and going off-formula.
I already gave an actual example, so I'm gonna need more than a snarky, dismissive remark before I believe you're not acting in bad faith and are actually worth my time to engage.

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

It's obvious that by 10 and 11, Koyama was sick of the formula and decided to go as far away from it as possible. I'll take formula over boredom, an overexposed villain, and seawater any day of the week. How does rehashing a villain for the third time feel fresh? Because the villains are always, al...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

Geez, I like both Z 10 and 11. It's definitely Z 7 and RoF that are the absolute bottom of the barrel as far as I'm concerned. 7 is formulaic trash, where practically nothing exists except to satisfy the beats in the established formula that were already stale by the time this came along. Kuririn do...

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...

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...

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 ...

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.
