Re: People who have managed to have extremely low contact with the manga.

It was actually around the time I have discovered the Daizex, around 2003? And with other anime, that I have found out that they are actually adaptation of black and white comics. But it wasn't until I started to work and earn more money in 2009 that I have bought the original 42 Japanese tankobons,...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

FighterZ is damn slow since the Season 2 DLC. Sure, coronavirus slowed things a lot, but this game was so slow with content after it was announced, which kinda hit me with contrast with the Season 1. Probably indicates that Season 1 was final before they saw how popular the game is and started doing...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Bandai Namco have pulled out of EVO Online (along with everyone else), and the tournament has been cancelled on account of the president Joey Cuellar, aka Mr Wizard being an alleged child-grooming scumbag.

Re: PlayStation 5 and the future of DBZ games..

I loved Sparking and Raging Blast series right up to 2... RB2 was like the culimation of the series, as it had almost all of the characters from Z and movies + Hatchihyaku. Only things I have missed in this game was some story mode at least and EoZ costume for Goku, but it had a ton of things better...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

Here's a hill I'm willing to die on - Super is enjoyable. I'd be fine if it never existed but since it does, I'll go on the record as saying the hatred for it isn't deserved. It's like pizza - most pizza is good even so-so pizza is enjoyable. To be honest, I think a lot of why I hated on it is just...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

You sure about that? I'm no insider, but considering that no one has officially announced it yet, I think it's safe to say it was a massive translation error. It is like while back, that fans were reporting that Dragon Ball Super is returning for sure... and I say, fans are behaving like this for t...

But he then goes on to say THE BUU ARC is what made him a fan. I dont remember that arc being fast paced at all. But now thanks to ABED I now realize that this thread is for what we DONT yield on. So its okay. Even if I massively disagree its his opinion and repecting opinions is the true purpose o...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

I was curious about OG Dragon Ball because of the flashbacks and references, but it definitely took more time to get used to than Z, especially as a kid when the transformations and insane fights were much more important to me. I still enjoy them, but now as an adult fan I have much greater appreci...

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

Frankly for me, Battle Of Gods, the movie, felt like it was done by Toriyama itself after Buu arc, Then it went downhill. I've always said this. BOG is the only part of modern DB that actually feels like it belongs in the original manga, something like a lost story that Toriyama didn't publish back...

Re: What would Norihito Sumitomo’s weakest tracks be?

For me, Sumitomo is weak overall. Only themes I remember from him is Goku Black theme and when he makes orchestrated version of opening themes, that have really distinct and rich melodies... Compared to Kikuchi - he had a rich and really distinct sound, you always recognize his signature. Akihito To...

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

With dragonballs, there are actually no stakes... unless someone kills the God who created them or they have some bad side effect like in GT. But death really means nothing in Dragon Ball, as you can revive the characters over and over, until they probably die from old age and still, they live in a...

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

Honestly, if anyone had to die, I feel like the only one who'd have impact dying would be Gohan. I mean, 17 faked his death in the ToP, I can't see 18 doing anything suicidal. Piccolo died ReF. They missed a huge opportunity with Roshi, as his death after that great speech would've been perfect. Th...

Re: "Dragon Ball Legends" Official Discussion Thread

In my experience, I haven't spent a single dime on this game, but I've gotten most of the characters I've wanted. It's weird. Sometimes I'll go for a long time without getting any Sparking characters, and then I'll get three all at once with one summon. Unlike with some other games, I've never felt...
