I get the feeling that TFS returning to DBZ Abridged for the Buu arc is an inevitability at this point.

Re: Deploy the Headcanon!

Here's a few headcanon blasts from my direction, most of them the result of brainstorming for fanfic writing. Super Saiyan 3 is an unnatural transformation beyond the normal capabilities of the Saiyan's body, and it requires special circumstances to obtain. Goku got it by training in the afterlife w...

Re: Best way to watch the English Dub for the first time?

Okay, okay, point taken. Your entire goal here is to check out the English dub after already watching a good dub, because you want to compare the two out of curiosity. Fair enough, I can appreciate the "FOR SCIENCE" angle at work here. So in that case, my suggestion on how to watch the English dub i...

Re: Best way to watch the English Dub for the first time?

Question : What is the best way to watch English-dubbed Dragon Ball? Answer : Don't. That's my honest advice. Just don't. The overwhelming majority of English-dubbed Dragon Ball material is just plain awful in every objective and measurable sense. There is essentially nothing to gain by watching it...

Re: Did Trunks, Son Goten, & Gotenks Ever Master Super Saiyan?

Personally, I don't think they quite "mastered" it to the same extent that Goku and Gohan did in the Cell Arc (and that I believe Vegeta and Future Trunks likewise did soon after) . But I do think it comes more naturally to them by default, since they were basically born with the ability. Like, ther...

Re: Do you still enjoy non-canon Dragon Ball content?

"Canon" is almost entirely irrelevant to me, and it doesn't affect my enjoyment or consideration of things whatsoever. Inversely, if I've determined for myself that something is steaming garbage (like Super) , then I have no qualms about completely disregarding it, no matter how current it is or how...

Re: When all is said and done, who was stronger: Super Perfect Cell or SSJ2 Gohan?

Could it be that Gohan's hesitation and the loss of his confidence prompted the decrease? Mindset and fortitude are described as being aspects of ki according to one Toriyama interview iirc. Yeah, I'd definitely say that's a big part of it. Ki is just as much of a mental power as it is physical. Wh...

Re: When all is said and done, who was stronger: Super Perfect Cell or SSJ2 Gohan?

One important thing to remember is that Gohan didn't use only half his power to defeat Cell. When their Kamehameha clash started, Gohan was losing , badly and quickly, and there's even a direct line from Piccolo saying, "Gohan can't win, his ki is too weak." No, ultimately Gohan won by managing to s...

Re: Where can Saiyan transformations go from here?

If the best that even Toriyama can come up with anymore are cheap, lazy, unoriginal recolors of past forms, then I hope this is the end of new ones for a very long time. I'm fairly convinced that Toriyama used up the last of his form-designing creative juices with Super Saiyan God, since that was th...

Re: Concerning Imperfect Cell's timeline and the Androids strength

If we only had Trunks' guess to go by, then there'd be some room for argument that the Androids are actually the same between both timelines and he only thought his future ones were weaker. But the guidebooks straight-up tell us that yes, the future Androids actually were somewhat weaker. We don't r...

Re: Is a Golden Great Ape 1.25 times stronger than a Super Saiyan 3?

If anything, it would probably take the full extent of the user's Super Saiyan power into account and multiply that by 10 from Great Ape. So for Goku it would hypothetically be his full Super Saiyan 3 power, meaning 400 x 10 for a whopping 4,000x power boost as a Golden Ape. But then of course Super...

Re: Asking Takao Koyama

What exactly is this supposed to change or prove, anyway? We've already known for years that Koyama is his own creation's biggest fanboy, and has a hard time envisioning any other foe as stronger than Broli. Even though he helped create two such stronger foes in Janemba and Hirudegarn.

Ditto. I don't care how "epic" a dub thinks they're making a line sound, accuracy to the actual original dialogue is always better by default.

Re: Kaioken x10 in the Frieza arc

He didn't start using the Kaio-Ken at all until after Freeza started using 50% of his full power and pummeling him. You see Goku flare up the Kaio-Ken aura at least once before Kaio tells us that he's using the x10 version.

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

At first, yes. But then it just kept scratching, too hard, and ended up breaking the skin and giving me a nasty infection.

...To make a gross but apt analogy of how I've come to view DB's modern revival and boom as a whole.
