Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

I really can't rank this stuff. My feelings are so fluid.

I just can't understand that. The whole idea makes me uncomfortable.
That's how you're supposed to feel being a normal human being.
Kinks are a normal part of human life, honey. I hope you someday learn to enjoy your sexuality!

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

They added rape scenes, though. Furthermore, yes, the TV series can and should remove rape if it's going to serve no real purpose or ia just damaging. The purpose it served, broadly speaking, is to further add to the type of setting of the story. The entire theme of GoT is its a terribly brutal wor...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

What is so hard about understanding that nothing exists in a vacuum? That perhaps those decisions they made were really poor decisions for making a television series, especially one with such a water cooler status. I'm confused on what your point is. Are you saying people shouldn't make TV shows ba...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

My issue with Game of Thrones, as stated before, is how the series isn't about that. It uses the rape of women as if it was some sort of plot device. Women have no control over the production, either. This isn't a personal story of a female auteur creating art to process her trauma, this is two ric...

Re: Do you miss the Super anime?

Yes. I miss seeing Kale, Caulifla, Ribrianne, Zamasu and other new characters be introduced as well as what unexpected things the production crew would come up with.

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

But getting off on rape? That's disturbing. In erotica? Hardly. The whole point is to indulge in your dirtiest fantasies. People have been doing this forever. Why do you think rape roleplay exists? People like to have a controlled sense of experiencing a lack of control. Find a partner you trust an...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

Then again, you'd need to change huge swathes of the series in general for the bad taste to go away. Less gratuitous and unerotic rape Maybe I'm missing something here, but are you implying that there's such a thing as 'erotic rape', and that it's a good thing? Erotic fiction, sweetie!

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

If anything it's the opposite, it should've gone on for longer to better develop the various storylines. Instead they decided to cramp everything up in 6 episodes. The result is that you have a character who in one episode helps save the world from the apocalypse, and in the next commits genocide. ...

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

I think we should all step back from fandom and just like what we like how we like it. I know there's a need to share that love but I am really beginning to suspect that forums and the like are not the place for that. Fandom cannot be some all-consuming aspect of our lives. I guess that's funny to h...

Who's Sadala Elite and what same post? Good one. I don't know why you're feigning, but this took me maybe 5 minutes: Android 21 is overall the best Modern DB character (aka anyone introduced since Yo Son Goku & Friends in 2008), and is more likeable than 90% of the classic cast.

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

I dunno, I think plenty of other series are better crafted. Shin Seiki Evangelion is the greatest television series of all time, though. That's really my only strong feeling on ranking series'. Legit the only show I’ve seen go past 6 seasons and still be good is Buffy and even then season 7 is medio...

Re: How much money goes into an episode of Dragon Ball?

Modern Toei has higher pay than other studios so I wouldn't be surprised if the amount spent is higher. Nevertheless, the quality falters from a lack of time and animators who specialize in movement.

It's not condescending to say that perhaps we should think as empathetic humans before we think like we're characters in a dumb fucking shounen comic where pride is everything that matters.
