Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

I don't think you'll have to worry about men-loving men turning on aces just because Piccolo is called ace. Boy's Love comics between Piccolo and Gohan won't go away. I'm not sure if this was a reply for me- but I was thinking more of the other way around. It's about people turning on those who dra...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

I still don't see what the big deal is about Piccolo stating he's asexual, if the topic happens to come up in some form of media. As it has been stated again and again, it would be out of character for him to do so. The most we get is him stating that he is Namekian. He is a character that probably...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Assuming I'm interpreting the jab correctly, equating discussions about possible non-hetero relationships with hentai (perversion/porn) pretty much high-lights why representation is important.

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Ribrianne had a crush on Jiren and in the manga she liked Krillin. By Ribrianne's group I think they mean Kakunsa and Bikal - I think it's safe to say these two are an item. Yeah, those two, but Ribrianne camd off as being a woman-loving-woman to me, too. She did seem to adore Heles quite a bit, to...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Honestly, a question I would love to know as we know Piccolo is asexual but what do y'all think, is he aromantic or could he end up finding someone to date but not have sex with? He mentioned having no interest in romance after Krillins crush on 18 was revealed to the cast at the end of the Cell sa...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

How many times do we have to point out that calling Piccolo asexual isn't changing or retconning anything? It's just explicitly stating something that has been true from the beginning. Bingo. He always fit into this description. It's just now we have words that directly describe it. Do I think Tori...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

One thing I can't understand with all of this is that a portion of the black community have already been projecting their identity onto Piccolo for decades now and nobody has ever had an issue with that, what is wrong with LGBT+ doing the same? As a straight white male (cishet is the term I believe...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

He's from a race that has one sex and reproduces asexually. Does it need to be stated? Of course he's not attracted to women. Well that's what I see here some people say, that they'd want a clear statement from the character himself. Whenever it's brought up it's attributed to his Namekian biology ...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

The cool thing about fan art is that you can have any character kiss any other character you like. I think it would be nice for aces to have a character like them, though. Piccolo mentioning something like "Uh...sorry, I'm not into that" or even "Uh...sorry, I'm ace." would be nice representation f...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

And does anyone really think it would make any sense to portray Piccolo as a heterosexual man who was into girls? That would be changing his established character way more than calling him asexual would be. Sense, maybe not. It would definitely cause a hubbub, but seeing as he's got quite a number ...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

If you want LGBT+ representation out of him, go with the obvious: he's asexual . That's what the OP meant as far as I understood. Piccolo described as asexual has been going around for years - it was basically part of every English bio I came across of him -but the difference is is that it's biolog...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Piccolo has never been shown to be sexual or romantic in any way. So I don't see the problem with someone calling him asexual. Because it is determined by alien biology. One of the main issues sexual minorities face is the argument "but our human biology..." so that's what I mean by choosing non-hu...

Re: Would Pilaf have re-appeared if the anime didn't feature them as much?

I think we tend to overestimate Toriyama's tendency to forget things. What he remembers and what he moves on from might also be related to his interests. The Pilaf gang seem to be exactly the type of characters he enjoys writing so I wouldn't say necessarily that it was because of the anime that he...

Re: Would Pilaf have re-appeared if the anime didn't feature them as much?

Here's a thought experiment I came up with recently: Do you think Toriyama would have re-introduced the Pilaf Gang in the Baba and Daimao arcs if the anime hadn't featured them as much in the Pilaf and Red Ribbon arcs? I'm inclined to say no as he likely would have forgotten about them had the anim...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

He didn't allow it - it happened faster than he expected and he witnessing something that made him freeze. How do you figure that? He watched Cell drain the guy. Cell didn't drain the guy faster than light speed. He could've interrupted at any time ... but he didn't. It's the same thing as the figh...

While I was reading the most recent chapter, I thought that Piccolo would invent a new technique, something that his foe can't know but I was wrong.
Neat idea. but I'm pretty sure Vegeta's the only one that's gonna show a new technique this arc :/

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

I disagree with this interpretation- what you are describing makes sense on paper, but he's not an unfeeling character that is capable of these hardhearted decision on the spot. But he is. In the Cell saga, for whatever reason, probably a strategic one, he let Cell absorb that rich human . In the B...
