Re: You are put in charge of the entire Dragon Ball Franchise what you do ?

In charge of the whole franchise eh? I'd sunset the property after making an anime version of the current manga arc. We've had a few cool moments but overall I feel like this revival has actually been bad for the series. That said I'd take merchandising in bold new directions before pulling the plug...

Re: So how does one *correctly* hug their fans?

As an older fellow I've always found the concept of a hug like this from, essentially, a complete stranger to be freaky at best. I guess it's a little different in a controlled environment like a convention, but I still cannot understand the appeal at all. I remember once, I was leaving a hockey pla...

I have to say after this chapter I'm really starting to get into this arc. Really looking forward to where it goes.

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I'd really love to see some original DB characters someday. That notwithstanding, I love everything about this game anyway. My dream character at this point would be Bacterian.

Just got back from the long anticipated showing. That was freaking incredible. Even having almost everything spoiled already I was massively entertained. Highest recommendation.

Re: In defense of 18's hated line from Episode 131...

18 fights on the side of the main cast, but she has never shown much in the way of a moral alignment with them. I feel the line was consistent with her character. Not everyone is likable. That she would be that materialistic might be chilling to some, but there are people like that in this world too.

Re: Would it be a better idea to replace Nozawa before she passes away?

She has obviously, at this point, earned the right to call her own shot. It's definitely going to happen someday. Gonna be hard to deal with when it does :(

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I was cautiously optimistic for how Bardock would play in this game, but he's even better than I hoped. As much as it pained me to do it I had to dump Vegeta and his amazing assist from my main team to make room for him. Broly also looks like a ton of fun to play. Really feel like they knocked both ...

Re: What made you switch over to the Japanese version?

I found almost every aspect of the dub distasteful. What drove me over the edge? It was a combination of everything I think. I found myself especially irked by the replacement music and the nonsensical writing that created whole new plotholes. I also found the way they wrote Freeza in season 3 to be...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

Even though he has been a terribly boring opponent for Goku, I think if Jiren became one of the gang he could be fun. It'd give us a non Saiya-jin in an important role and I think his total lack of a personality could make him a hilarious straight man to play off of Goku. Edit: Basically a replaceme...

At least we have a date now. The 28th eh? I've been considering dropping Vegeta and his awesome assist from my team. Maybe it'll be Bardock who takes his place.

Re: Was Super Saiyan a mistake?

I don't think it worked like that, personally. While Super Saiyan was built up with a lot of foreshadowing before that point, I don't feel like Toriyama introduces story elements to specifically up his paycheck, outside of "oh this seems to be popular". I'm not implying that he foresaw it ending up...

Ah, well that being the case then I'd say it was definitely a narrative error. Still cannot imagine a world where it doesn't happen though given all the money it helped generate.

Re: Was Super Saiyan a mistake?

I think in terms of a continuing narrative it was a mistake. Given that it was believed the story was ending around that time I can see value in the idea of ending the story with a bang with the transformation and such, but since they continued the story onward after that and continued in a linear d...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Considering Black and Hit weren't in the story, I highly doubt the DLC characters will expand it in any way. I'd like a release date for the characters. They might announce a fourth story mode for dlc later on. I think I love this game more anybody on the planet, but even I recoil at the idea of sh...

Oh my god he got MOPPED! Always refreshing to see Fox lose, only because he wins so damn much lol. Thought it was gonna be closer seeing how Sonic Fox started out so strong.

Re: A critical ranking of 39 Dragon Ball games: Celebrating FighterZ's success!

I feel like FighterZ is the only truly great game on this list. I also enjoyed Budokai 3, Xenoverse (both games) and Budokai Tenkaichi 3 (Wii version specifically, I feel like it was one of the few games where the motion controls were amazing), but those games don't have the type of skill ceiling th...

Re: Jiren -such a huge disappointment

Jiren is basically Toguro from Yu Yu Hakusho. I liked Toguro. He made for a very intimidating antagonist. Jiren accomplishes the same thing. Really? I don't see it at all. Toguro had a significant role in the life of Yusuke's mentor and certainly a much stronger characterization. I feel like Jiren,...

So with the speculation about Freeza and his involvement in the conclusion, am I the only one who has envisioned this ending in a style similar to how The Simpsons would do it? I.E.
