Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

Should I interpret "the user Desassina... their inputs..." as somekind of jab meant to hint at a double personality disorder? Because I'm kind of tired of your attempts at subtle jokes which get the message across to anyone and me (not but me). This was after a certain private message by the way. I...

Re: Humble Background.

Characters don't need to have a humble background. I mean, look at Batman.

What they need is some kind of conflict, some event to bring them down to Earth and show that they are "one of us." Again, Batman.

Re: What is your estimation of Toriyama as a writer?

It's hard to say, having not ready any of the man's other works. In Dragon Ball, I think he's a pretty good writer once he hits that sweet spot between settling into the series and being burnt out. I think the 22nd Budokai-Early Freeza Arc portion of the series hold up pretty well, although the Daim...

Same guy. This guy would be hilarious, if it weren't for the fact that Florida is fucked up enough to elect a deranged moron like him.

Yes, let's throw politics into this discussion. That always makes threads better.

Re: The auto correct we never asked for, but totally deserve

"Frieza" is wrong, it makes no sense and doesn't stick with the pun, it's literally like saying "Say-in" as opposed to the correct "Sigh-yan". It's not wrong, per say. The pronunciation is the same; English uses "ie" to make the "ee" sound pretty often (belief, relieve, sieve, grieve, etc.) It's an...

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.

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.
