Re: Vic Mignogna

The Onision stuff is hilarious and sad. Apparently Mike Morse, an attorney from here in Michigan, is getting involved on Repzion's behalf. You can't watch half an hour of Detroit-area television without seeing 17 Mike Morse law firm ads, so when I saw he was involved I had to do a double take.

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

I like Kelamis as Goku a lot, but I'll be the first to admit he gets a LOT of mileage with fans for trying to sound like Nozawa.

They made them equally powerful so they could sell more toys. :P

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

With the exception of the hilarious censorship, the Ocean dub is a solid, well-produced production with a wealth of incredible voice talent. Corlett is a great Goku that perfectly balanced Goku's goofy and serious moments, McNeil's Piccolo is one of the best English dub performances in history, Drum...

Re: What Would A Hypothetical SSJ5 & Beyond Be Like?

Well, each super saiyan form has a "hook" to it, so to speak. The first form of SSJ is your standard shonen transformation, nothing too complicated there, but incredibly iconic. The grade forms represent transitional stages toward gaining higher power, a sort of foreshadowing for something greater. ...

Re: Which series has better powerscaling, GT or Super?

GT's power scaling is clearly less egregious, but that doesn't mean it makes any more sense.

Re: What if SS4 returned?

The problem is that it needs to be saiyans with tails. So right off the bat, it ceases to become an interesting way to make certain side characters relevant without just copying what Goku and Vegeta have done - it'd be cool as shit to see Gohan or Future Trunks utilize SSJ4 instead of trying to go g...

Re: The Good old days of Dragonball websites.

When I was straight up 11-13ish, I basically lived in the Temple O' Trunks chatroom. I have several friends I still keep in touch with today from there.

Relatedly, I sometimes post on Shadows of Namek. Those guys are some goofs.

Re: The Good old days of Dragonball websites.

Three DB sites were my mainstays:

- Karin Tower
- The Ultimate DBZ Info Site
- Temple O' Trunks

I never really went to Planet Namek even though it was probably THE Dragon Ball hub at the time. And now I'm here!

Re: Vic Mignogna

There's only one anime/manga involving rape scenes that I can think of that I am a fan of - Berserk. Those scenes certainly aren't portrayed as good, inconsequential, or played for laughs. I don't know how other people here would categorize Berserk's use of rape but I think it is treated as a serio...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Here's the problem, though. Issuing those kinds of mandates implies one or both of two things: that the artist was deliberately reinforcing these "harmful" precedents and/or the consumer is watching specifically for that content, or that certain things are just inherently off limits, e.g. LGBT peopl...

I was agreeing with you.

Re: Vic Mignogna

I find obnoxious the idea that every plot element and/or personal interaction in fiction must necessarily be framed as an "implication" or otherwise enforcing some sort of assumed precedent. However... The problem is how ill timed the show is. With the #MeToo movement being such a new thing, now is ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Not directly related to the case, but I thought it was interesting that John Oliver did a video about SLAPP suits. LegalEagle also did a supplementary video. Both videos deal a bit with defamation.

The issue rests on whether or not Jiren could beat Beerus. Vegeta wouldn't beat Jiren.

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

Super Broly was awesome and the Zamasu arc is one of the most interesting DB storylines, even if it had some flaws (really, they dimension hop TWICE and get their asses kicked TWICE) and the fight choreography was mostly lackluster. I didn't really like BoG but you can't say it wasn't a fresh addit...

Re: Is being attracted to a Dragon Ball character considered weird?

"Strong yet accessible" is the best personality archetype.

That most of these women could bench press me is a bonus.
