Re: What was happening in the Dragon Ball series around your birth?

Wow, so you came right after the anime officially debuted in Japan. :thumbup: Yep! Just two days after episode 2. What do I win? June 24 1987 - the DB episode "The Turtle Hermit's Intense Training" / "The Turtle Hermit Way" was aired on June 25. That was June 25, 1986. Did you make a typo in your b...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 6/17/19!)

One question concerning your line about Cell learning about Goku''s teleporting ability at the tournament. I could have sworn that he first mentions it while in his second form, when Goku rescues Tenshinhan and Piccolo. Granted, my main experience with this arc comes from the Legacy of Goku game, s...

The Dragon Ball Dissection episode on Movie 8 will come out after Part 16.

In case you're ever wondering when any movie is going to be covered, don't forget that you're currently on a website that will tell you exactly when every movie comes out. :P

Goku Passes the Torch - Dragon Ball Dissection: The Cell Arc Part 15!

Mr. Satan and a reporter team up to be the designated comic relief. Then Goku and Cell fight in a tournament that pretty much stops being a tournament after the first few minutes.

Re: How many series exist for you?

"Exist" can be a rather vague descriptor. Objectively speaking, they all exist. I know this is a more subjective question, but even then, is it asking what you choose to watch, what you believe is "canon," what you personally choose to ignore, what you like, which Toei-induced arbitrary divisions yo...

Re: DB's ending

Put me firmly in the "Dragon Ball should have ended when it ended" camp as well, and for all of the above reasons. My pet cause is that it has lost all sense of progression. It plays it safe. Time stands still. Everything more or less reverts to the status quo, which is really disheartening because ...

Re: Manga UK's Dragon Ball charity raffle for Mermaids

Yeah, just like how it's easy to accuse people of transphobia, isn't it? I don't care if a biological man wants to define himself as a woman, or a biological woman wants to define herself as a man. That's all fine with. Do what you want, it's your life. Enjoy it. That being said, it's a decision th...

You know what I meant so we'll bypass that. No. We won't bypass that. Because while it seems like I was just being snarky, the fact that you so easily tripped up on that is tantamount to my point. A man can be cishet. A man can be cis and not het. A man can be het and not cis. As the Vulcans say, i...

Now you're telling me that a "cishnet"... is essentially just a man saying "I'm a man". Yeah? There's a word for that? Doesn't that describe like 99+% of the human population? Phew. If you think 99+% of the human population is "man," I have some shocking news for you. Allow me introduce you to "wom...

Not sure what a "cishet" is, sounds like another made up word I'm only choosing this specific example because it's the most recent, but good gravy, for someone so admittedly ignorant on pretty much every term and concept discussed in this thread, you sure somehow manage to already have a ready-made...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

It even more heavily reinforces the toxically masculine idea that it's impossible or worthy of mockery for two men to show platonic affection and love for each other. That the only reason two men would live together and be protective of each other is because "they has the sex, lolz!" It's such an e...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

A seemingly simple question is deceptively complex due to the various cultural and sociological baggage contained within. Traditionally, I have always held that they're not, and I still do. Typically, I feel that most of the time (maybe less so nowadays) that it's brought up, it's done in such a sni...

Re: Characters you like but everyone else hates

Bardock. Don't know if "hate" is the right word, though. More like "fed up". Seeing how Bardock is treated differently (not in many different places, it's only in Dragon Ball Online and Dragon Ball Minus/Dragon Ball Super: Broly that he's different, in everything else his personality is coherent; E...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Something I find interesting when talking about the subject of film restoration/preservation/remastering is just how much clarification the word "old" needs. That may sound kind of silly. Everyone knows what old means. It's a very simple word. But it can easily have connotations that color the cours...

So is Lance heading into the Freeza Arc for DBDTV now, or will that be after the Cell Arc is completed in normal DBD?

Don't remember the specifics of how these videos are released
Only once The Cell Arc is completed.
