Re: Could the Special Beam Cannon and headlock combo have worked on Vegeta or Frieza?

It could work on Vegeta the same way it did Raditz. Freeza is biologically different, though. He's survived being blown to pieces; I doubt a piercing attack will do enough damage to kill him.

Re: What are people’s thoughts on how increasingly “normal” the world of Dragon Ball became?

As for the humans. It's one of those things which Toriyama understood perfectly. It's human nature to forget. Even he himself claims so. So it's only natural for Tenkaichi Budoukai audiences to forget existence of such powerful fighters from the past like frm 21st, 22nd & 23rd TB Piccolo literally ...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

To me it seems Vegeta was saying that the zenkai effect wouldn't kick in on self inflicted wounds (perhaps an evolutionary mechanism to discourage self harm, or just a quirk) not that he couldn't hurt himself. I mean he and other characters can literally explode themselves and normally people can h...

So she had a slight burn on her left foot. Pathetic. This shouldn't be a game changing injury. So we have XXI waiting... U9 waiting. Grand Kaio waiting. Wounded Goten and good Bra waiting. Blasting off her foot completely would've probably been more logical, but it's probably just easier for artist...

Re: Dragon Ball Lore

2 of the 3 sites provide links to peer-reviewed studies that prove my point. One of the three sites lists only Wikipedia as a source for the images, with no other link, another has a link but the link is dead, and the third is a q&a, not a study. And even if you could dig up some article by Deutsch...

Re: Dragon Ball Lore

It's by definition impossible to not bring personal feelings and bias into the equation when it comes to art. Art is by its very natural personal and emotional. Critics have a deeper well of knoweldge about the history of film/TV/books and generally have more experience, but that doesn't mean it's ...

Re: Gotenks is by far the most annoying canon character of the entire franchise

My only problem with Gotenks is that he doesn't really act like what a fusion of Goten and Trunks should act like, in my opinion. There's no Goten in there; it's just Trunks turned up to 11.

Re: So, did DBZ Movie 14, and everything after scratched your DB itch?

I've had fun with the movies and Super, but I was never really craving anything else. I'm not that big a DB fan nowadays anyway, so I guess the new stuff didn't really succeed in bringing me back into the fold or anything.

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

I've been reading the 2015 Vader comic, and it's better than anything Dragon Ball has put out over the last 20 years, so that's something.

Re: Why does the Garlic Jr. filler arc exist?

I understand that Toei had to play catch-up with the manga, so I'm not really asking why there was a filler arc between the end of the battle on Namek and the arrival of Mecha-Frieza. But why a Garlic Jr. saga specifically? It seems almost random. I'm not complaining; I actually like the character,...

- A full proper English translated release of the entire Daizenshuu. Because why not? Because the mad people would over analyze the fuck out of the 3 pages total throughout the set that mention power levels, driving the rest of us insane and bringing about the third world War.
