If by "finally" you mean "15 years ago" then yup.

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: SSG or SSJ4

Visually the SSJG transformation is awfully underwhelming for the supposed significance of it.

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.

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. ...

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...
