Re: Vic Mignogna

As clearly demonstrated, while there's certainly some decent percentage of naive, clueless FUNimation dub stans who are obsessively loyal to Vic at play in this (and they're playing the dutiful role of Useful Idiots), a LARGE bulk of this at its centeral core has little to nothing to do with any re...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Quoting Google: Soy is a phytoestrogen, or a plant based estrogen. It contains two isoflavones, genistein and daidzein, which act like estrogen (the female sex hormone) within the body. Because estrogen plays a role in everything from breast cancer to sexual reproduction, this is where most of the s...

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

I agree that Goku's excuse of attracting bad guys is a flimsy one. Indeed, he makes everything safer, he pacifies and domesticates his enemies, making them less threatening, and by extension, less challenging. That's exactly why running away to fight dead people is his only way to stay engaged and g...

Re: Could The Entire Z-Senshi(Freeza & Broly too) Take On An Angel?

Say Whis was under orders from Daishinkan to test the full might of his universe's best fighters by threatening to destroy it, could all of the strongest, smartest, and most experienced fighters of Earth as well as Broly & Freeza be able to stop Whis? What would be funnier? A fly marrying a bumbleb...

Re: Are Power Scalers a cause or symptom of toxicity in the fandom?

It has always amused me that some forumites complain about fans wanting to know who's stronger than who in a series that's focused almost solely on fighting, a series whose protagonist cares about becoming stronger more than literally anything else. "Power scalers" are more in-tune with what the se...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Let me get this straight, H'huck Cuber is a fundie, Mic Vignogna is a fundie, Fukunaga is a fundie and associates with big-name fundies like Vignogna and Sick Rantorum and they all work together at the company producing for a cartoon that Fukunaga had to beg his Kamen Rider producer uncle to use hi...

Re: Is Dragon Ball too closely tied to its own zeitgeist?

There's a particular irony with works like Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, and so on, which try to replicate what Dragon Ball did....but in a more well-thought-out, planned, and internally-consistent manner. The problem is that what Dragon Ball did was the result of not being terribly well thought-out, p...

Re: What do you want the next DragonBall series to be like?

Toriyama writing, Masaaki Yuasa animating, and Susumu Hirasawa (or Sigh) composing the music.

I'll take literally anything that they come up with together.

You realize that the US government is currently trying to strip away the human rights of transgender folks such as myself, right? That's going to get this little girl killed. This is to say nothing of a billion other things they're doing to siphon the working-class' money away to the owner-class. Y...

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

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...
