Re: Endings

To be fair, he was also kind of like that in GT. Plus, even though Vegeta is still interested in being better than Goku, his rivalry with him is much friendlier at this point, which would still qualify as growth on his part. I believe he says something to the effect of "I'm done chasing after you K...

Re: Endings

A more daring version of GT would have killed off Goku in episode 1, and replaced him with Oob for the titular Grand Tour of the cosmos. Though I don't think that would have fixed any of GT's fundamental flaws, and ultimately the Japanese public were tired of Dragon Ball by that point anyway, so it...

Highly unlikely, the youth vote won't be needed as long as the older black folks vote for Biden, which they almost certainly will. If all it took were the votes of old black people, Hillary Clinton would be president now. Saying we don't need the youth vote to beat Trump is pretty much inviting ano...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Saying it's inadequate is one thing. Saying it's redundant is another. I've been making the case that's it's both redundant and inadequate, that's why I've been using both words. So theoretically, a given fiction can convey more meaningful qualities without the need for music? That's not even theor...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

This is where you lose me. Music is needed, but what the Faulconer score does is not needed? Because "the visuals exist"? Correct. What the Falconer score does as music is redundant in my opinion. Just because music is needed doesn't mean the music produced can't be inadequate, or redundant, or oth...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

You can say that for any background music. By that same token, the Japanese soundtrack isn't going to convince anyone that it enhances the drama or emotion of the show. You don't need it either. The show already has it. Yes, the story does already have drama and emotion in it, but we're not talking...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

This is basically where I stand. Faulconer's music is intended to sound cool, and quite frankly it does. To each their own, but to me, it always came off more as trying to be cool as opposed to actually being cool. It's like a person that constantly has to tell people that they're cool: A person th...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Ironically enough, I think that the attempt to "modernize" DBZ by throwing the Faulconer score in, actually had the opposite effect. Because it was synth, it sounds so old at this point. Whereas the original score, conducted with actual instruments (or at least it sounds like it was), sounds timele...

Re: What is the difference between Toriyama's Dragon Ball, and what other people come up with?

The problem is that Toriyama is also doing this. RF and Broly are examples of Toriyama just giving fans what they want, going as far as to admit that he wrote Broly because he was popular. Yes. Even Toriyama himself is guilty of this now, but I think those ideas are simply the result of him going a...

Re: What is the difference between Toriyama's Dragon Ball, and what other people come up with?

I think the main difference is that Toriyama was telling an original story in the manga. He'd always try to keep things fresh and new. Toei and fans on the other hand rely on nostalgia from that original manga instead of coming up with original ideas that can stand next to it. I think this goes to ...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

This is where Faulconer shines. His music is epic and reflects what is happening: a battle to save the world. Not a martial arts fight like in Ip Man or Bloodsport or Dragon Ball. This statement is indicative of a general tendency among dub fans to work backwards from their conclusions to retroacti...

opinions and all that, but my god does this read as being entitled. It takes time and effort to do what TFS did with DBZA, it's not a matter of just simply not wanting to do it. They started the Android saga in 2012 and didn't finish the cell arc until way into 2018. That's a lot of fucking time to...

Not gonna lie, as a fan of the Buu arc that already feels a bit isolated in loving it and Majin Buu as a character, and was really looking forward to seeing the arc get its time in the spotlight like the rest of Z, this is very disappointing; and I feel that it only further feeds into the convention...

Re: Do you actually believe that we are currently in some second Dragon Ball golden age?

Personally, I think the best Dragon Ball products in the current era are the Broly movie, FighterZ and Battle of Gods. It's a bit of an issue where I cannot confidently point to the Super anime itself as something to hold up among them. This is more or less my view. I can't call this a "second gold...

Re: How would you compare Dragon Ball’s revival to something like Star Wars?

Well... the Star Wars revival exposed that there have been long standing faults in the Star Wars community. There are at least 3 factions; "those who like it because they think it's a cool setting and just want to see stories set in that universe" "those who like the skywalkers and just want to hea...

Re: DragonBall should do more with politics

It's not. The system is still very much designed to keep blacks at a disadvantage which is why we have so much problems dealing with the law. The cases with Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner are proof of this. It was a racist statement and you're backpedaling with your response. Your s...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

Though I believe an arc should be watched from start to finish, if you already know the general outcome of the Future Trunks arc you can just watch it from episode 47 until 61 (after that the arc was rushed). Since you like the concept of Zamasu, that's also when his character truly shines and you ...
