Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I feel like I just got done complaining about people who have no sense of nuance/discretion when it comes to topics like these.

In true Murphy's Law fashion though, not only was this a self-fulfilling prophecy, but I'm also being second-guessed by people who haven't even viewed the source material.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I haven't seen the show, but based on your description, it seems that Diane's race does in fact have something to do with her character. Her name, appearance, a trip to Vietnam. Those are all aspects of race and ethnicity. I thoroughly explain how race does not factor into Diane's character, and yo...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

There's been a big hooplah about the VO of Diane from Bojack Horseman being white while the character of Diane is Vietnamese. I contend that if we were speaking of a character from the Boondocks, where not only is the cast majority black but the show itself is a direct commentary on the experience o...

Re: So, did DBZ Movie 14, and everything after scratched your DB itch?

To "scratch that itch", so to speak, I feel like Dragon Ball in some way has to make it back into the relevant zeitgeist of anime, because that's what I remember most about being a fan of DBZ - that it was the thing.

Super Broly was awesome though.

Re: Which character in which saga would you say is the best written character in the Franchise?

I think Vegeta's transformation over the entirety of DBZ is the most complete, dedicated, and reinforced character transformation in the entire series (although there's no fixing stupid). Piccolo in the saiyan arc is second I'd argue. Gohan's moment to shine was incredible and it has multiple moment...

Re: Is Dragon Ball creatively bankrupt at this point?

I don't know how the answer could possibly be anything other than, "yeah mostly". That doesn't mean that everything Dragon Ball has done since the Cell Games is bad , it means that stuff is getting rehashed a lot. Tired doesn't automatically mean bad. Super Broly was a great way to bring the Broly s...

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

The problem is that all Goku does while he's gone is either train or do literally nothing. Died and went to Kaio's? Train. Waiting to arrive at Namek? Train. Post-Ginyu battle? Sitting in a pod. Androids? Dying. Cell? Stand around for a while doing nothing, then go into the ROSAT and train . And the...

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

"DBZA is supplanting the actual series in the minds of fans, it's annoying!"

It ain't DBZA's fault that the main series can be so painfully mediocre at times.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Saw him one other time by the bar in the Detroit Renaissance Center. Watched a 16 year old Homestruck cosplayer get off the elevator, scream his name by the elevator, him run up to her, hug her, and lift her up. This was back when GLOMPING when popular. Uh NGL I think I saw literally the exact same...

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.

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.

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.
