Re: Would some decisions by Akira Toriyama in their original draft be beneficial to Dragon Ball Super?

Merging just creates a separate character. Leaving them as two makes for more interesting combination plays and doesn't suddenly subject us to a new character with no horse in the race.

Re: Would some decisions by Akira Toriyama in their original draft be beneficial to Dragon Ball Super?

I would prefer using Gokuu and Vegeta to outlast Merged Zamasu without merging themselves. There's no story with Vegeta. At least by having Gokuu and Vegeta fight in tandem the story would be "Gokuu and Vegeta shed their Saiyan habits to defeat their most dangerous enemy."

Re: Vic Mignogna

I went to a bar in girl mode for the first time. While waiting for a friend to show up I had two drunk cis men come on to me and boy howdy am I never sitting in a corner by myself ever again. I can't imagine how much more uncomfortable the victims of Mignogna had it. Being unable to move while a dru...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Fuck right off with this “you need to be civil about the way you talk about your abuser” I thought we dispensed with this idiocy six months ago but apparently some people are slow learners. Definitely. The whole attitude reminds me of the "respect authority" bullshit, only in a broader context. Lik...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I've noticed a similar thing in regards to victims of police brutality. Like saying that Travyon Martin was a shoplifter, or did graffiti, or was part of a gang, as if that excuses shooting him. They often go through the history and records of such (usually black) victims and find anything that cou...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Perhaps a victim of sexual assault should be afforded the room to defend herself against false accusations of lying to ruin the life of some conservative douche nobody outside of cartoon dubs made in the US has heard of?

Apologies for the run on sentence.

Admittedly, I'm too depressed and dysphoric to really put effort into writing my posts nearly as well as I want to. Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to go crawl up in a ball and eat these god awful Orange Cream Soda Gummy Bears.

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/11/19!)

The Collapse of DBZ's Animation and Pacing - DBD TV: The Freeza Arc Part 2! No need to mince words here. I've always thought the animated series takes a huge nosedive in quality at about this point. 20 years after scratching my head wondering why, I finally get to dive in to talk about it. And it w...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Moe began surfacing in the 1980s, when the first generation of kids raised on Japanese cartoons were joining the industry en mass and the idea of "media made for Otaku by Otaku" was just starting up. ZZ had some of this with its loli character, Ple Two, but we would also see it in Minky Momo and Cre...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Going to take the incredibly brave position of "moe is harmless and has been baked into the cake of anime since the 1980". The issue here is a single series seemingly being latched on to by weird woman-hating westerners.

I'll report back once I've subject myself to some of this series.

I spent 4.5 years in retail for tramlaw and it drove me nuts. I only ever enjoyed my female co-workers, whom made me feel at home.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Harem anime are actually not very popular. Otaku prefer vanilla sex and other pure elements. Actually having a polygamous relationship isn't something I have ever seen outside of doujinshi, anyway.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Glad to see that we're getting a better idea of when Kitarou ends. I just hope that pre-production of the next series is already well underway, if not animation already finished on the first rotation of episodes.

JYB is being accused of something now? What is going on? God, I know some people won’t approve of me saying this, but the MeToo era has been such a clusterfuck. I’m certainly not part of the ISWV crowd, but I was afraid that this whole thing would set a dangerous precedent. It’s just one of many re...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Covering about ninety pages of the comic per chapter--if not more with creative decisions--is the best option. In television you can cover a lot of ground quickly when you have professional actors reading the dialogue quickly and with energy. Instead of dragging stories out we should be thinking of ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

4 arcs crammed into 25 episodes? No thx. I'd say the Moro arc as such could lend itself for 25 episodes already. There's maybe five episodes worth of content from the comic to adapt. Twenty-five episodes is far too many episodes to stretch a small story over. From the Moro arc? It's a pretty big ar...
