Re: Exploring the lore

When it comes to bullet point representations of historical events, the events themselves, as outlined in said bullet points, don't really have any more or less "potential" storytelling merit than any other ones. I don't think any bit of backstory is "too important not to show", nor do I think any b...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Have you actually thought about this false equivalency? One side is campaigning against discrimination against women, people of colour and the LGBTQIA community, and the other side wants nothing to change because they benefit from the status quo/are bigots/are stupid. One side of this argument is b...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I'm still gonna default to innocent until proven guilty. Again, if anyone jumps to assuming that they all must be lying it's their problem not mine. No. Defaulting to "innocent until proven guilty" is a good thing to do. However, you're using it as an excuse to avoid making an educated guess and di...

Re: Vic Mignogna

There is a whole bunch of possibilities. Mignogna could have sexually harassed someone. I have yet to say it's impossible merely that so far I do not see any evidence to support that claim. Maybe parties involved misremembered things. Maybe the allegations have been embellished. Who knows, there co...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

OOC Dumb concept. People, and characters, can, and do, change. proof This isn't logic or mathematics, the concept doesn't apply. None of bolded ever truly retired from martial arts after Goku lost interest in them, and its unlikely and OOC for any of the 1st 6 names to do so either. Does "significa...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

Something to point out, isn't it a bit late for Vegeta to be making the argument that he doesn't need anyone to improve himself? Going back to the Mecha Freeza arc or even on Namek when he was relying on Sensu Beans provided by Goku, the restorative ability of the natives whom he was slaughtering, ...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

1. Goku wasn't the strongest guy at the end of the original manga, nor was he anywhere near the strongest at the end of Super. And the only reason he's the best at the end of GT is because everyone else died of old age. Neither Toriyama nor Toei is nearly as insistent on Goku being number 1 as you ...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

He's already showing early warning signs. Willing to miss a fun tournament to see his daughter's birth, giving up on someone's teachings because he's too stubborn. Goku wouldn't do either of those things. When did he give up on someone's teachings out of stubbornness? "Forget Ultra Instinct, I'm go...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

He can and might follow Gohan and Kurilin into family-focused retirement, where they all stay in shape, obviously, but they're not in the Big Fight anymore. Why would you want a show just focused on Goku ? If anything more of the Z fighters should be involved with the big fights. Why would Vegeta r...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

Retiring and becoming a full-time father. Why would he? That's out of character even for GT Vegeta. It's almost as stupid as saying Goku should retire from combat. Why wouldn't he? How's that out of character for GT Vegeta? How is that as stupid as Goku retiring from combat? Goku outlasts all of hi...

He can do that once DB is over.
He can. He can also do that before it is over.

Sean schemmel is one of the people that has talked about the situation. And his being a primadonna is relevant how?

Re: Vic Mignogna

But seriously, why is it so hard to believe that some of the stories might not be true? Some of them might not be, but to suggest that all of them might be false, and thus Vic is entirely innocent, again, requires a giant conspiracy on the part of tons of people who don't know one another, over the...

Re: Vic Mignogna

You all just seem so eager to believe he’s guilty when all that’s come up are just stories.thats it. No evidence, no proof , just takes yarned together by people that we don’t know if true or not. It’s like the telephone game. We don’t know if those stories are true or not. We can’t just believe th...

Re: For those dissatisfied with Gohan in the Super anime, state your reasons here.

I don't care if he's the main character/strongest. Fair enough, then. 1. You are assuming that a man can't run a family and be a warrior/martial arts at the same time (even though nearly all warrior cultures in real life do just that.) You are making a false dichotomy. I'm not assuming that. I'm po...

Re: For those dissatisfied with Gohan in the Super anime, state your reasons here.

You said he should retire. I disagree. Super had him commit to training again after F so he could be there to protect his friends/family. He's one of the only characters in the cast with said motivations. Gohan works as someone Goku can interact with for relationship reasons but also because Goku h...
