Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

No, airing Kai on Kidswb hurt Kai in the US. The average fan assumed Kai with Blue Popo and the glowing light orbs in place of halos, and the complete lack of blood and references to death was the actual Dragon Ball Z Kai. The eventual Adult Swim airings I think mostly fixed this mentality but befo...

Re: What if dragon ball was a comic book series?

There are tons, tons, tons of comics out there, even in the superhero world, that have one creative team and that's it. Comics are not will never be just "superhero".

Also what's with the weird "but editors and being told what to do" as if mangaka don't have editors that interfere when they need to.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

DBZ was cool enough without the 'amped up' dialogue. I'm not even sure where you stand on this issue anymore. It seems like you understand and agree that the changes were pointless, unhelpful and nonsensical and were not needed. Dragon Ball was popular in plenty of places for many, many years witho...

Re: I'm done with the dub UPDATE

Re: Do you enjoy Complaining about/Discussing/Watching edited versions of DB?

Purely for nostalgic reasons and for a laugh at the edits, I've watched the Ocean Group voices while stoned but other than not really. Most of the time, I can't get past the voices (especially Schemmel and Sabat).

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

What perplexes me is the belief that LGBTQIA+ characters couldn't be chaste. It could be easily achieved with, for example a male character announcing that he "will win this fight for [my] family, for [my] husband" or a quick touch (hand squeeze on the shoulder before a battle), and "win this battle...

Blue's this what you'd call "high-class" guy.

All of those things you mentioned are gay stereotypes. As well a...

Re: Vic Mignogna

This one though, I will at least agree is probably not helping in the long run. I can't blame Marchi for being angry, not one bit, but unfortunately it's given way too many people "evidence" of how "violent the anti-Vic side is", and unfortunately can be way too easily mistaken as an actual threat....

Re: Would General Blue be considered offensive to the LGBTQ+ community in this day and age?

I love the question includes “in this day and age” as if making the gay dude a pedophile wouldn’t be considered offensive to gay people in the 80s and 90s. I don't think PhoenixEX was implying that gay people wouldn't have found it offensive in that era, but more that "Joe Public" wouldn't have. If...

Dragon Ball doesn't need to be "fixed." It's great just the way it is, hence this forum's existence. This isn't about DB needing improvement but rather seeing how it can be done under completely different visions. But what does that even achieve when the original product is so strongly it's own thi...

I'm just not sure why anybody thinks Tenshinhan bring homosexual, (homoromantic) asexual or pansexual would change anything about the series.

Re: How to watch Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z or Dragon Ball GT legally for free?

Weirdly enough we did have Battle of the Gods and Resurrection of F on there a couple of months ago, because my partner and I watched the former, and when we we to watch the latter a month ago it was gone. (So was the former, but we'd already seen that.)
