My big, green, sole tentacle-tailed husband...just so, so gorgeous. God, I would die to be able to go back in time and get Wakamoto Norio and Gouri Daisuke to voice these two in a CD drama or OVA.

Re: Semi Perfect Cell is Underrated

Very upsetting to see disrespect of my husband, the very handsome and charismatic Second Form Cell. Yes, he was a himbo, yes, he had his ass handed to him by Tenshinhan, Vegeta and Trunks, yes, he was a son of a bitch but he was my son of a bitch. I never ever thought I'd see Cell being called a hi...

Second Form Cell is my handsome husband and will have none of this hoo-hah about him being dumb and ugly. He's trying, gawddammt!

Re: Possibility of Piccolo becoming relevant again (pfffffttt)...

The power gaps only exist because JUMP wants to push Gokuu and Vegeta. There's no reason Piccolo's arbitrary falling behind can't be swept aside swiftly and without much thought.

Re: How would you have handled the Garlic Jr. arc?

So, operating purely under the terms of the time? I'd have extended the arc with flashbacks to Garlic's youth, his escaping the Dead Zone and the other Mazoku on the Makyou. Let's aim for 26 episodes!

Re: Exactly “HOW” did Vegeta achieve Super Saiyan God while training under Whis??

Meditation while trying to recall the feeling of everyone's ki from the ritual and anything residual he can recall from watching Gokuu fight Beers.

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

Art is subjective. I think Evangelion is the greatest television series of all time, some people disagree, and I make voodoo dolls of them and pin them to my wall so that my Russian Blue can vomit on them.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I get mansplained sometimes when I venture out into the greater internet. It always seems to come from cishet white guys. It's pretty disconcerting to be told your experiences don't count for anything. I definitely think there's a lack of empathy since, well, cishet white guys don't put up with pate...

Re: If characters from Dragon Ball appeared as Guest Characters in Mortal Kombat or Injustice

For story and dialogue, I feel like using Freeza would probably fit the most. He has the most striking dialogue and design that I think would make for the most interesting conversations, unless they're willing to have Son Gokuu go all-out and be poisonous by not being antagonistic toward the evil ch...

Turns out there's more info on that poll here . Pretty disappointed in the Washington Post, as I normally consider them a pretty reliable source. In any event, not that I was using that term even after seeing that poll, but it nevertheless appears I was wrong to use that poll as an example. This is...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I agree in principal that we need to hold ourselves to a higher standard when it comes to being sensitive to what minorities want, but what most of the minority actors that I've heard speaking about this issue have said is that they want more opportunities, not just opportunities restricted to thei...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

Again, it's worth considering that white people wouldn't be the only demographic sealed off from that work if dub casting was 100% ethnically accurate. Black actors would be barred from it, as would Latino actors. For that matter, if we're going to be as specific as saying that they have to be Amer...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I mean, are anime voice actors usually known to be well off? If not, then I don’t think it’d be fair if all those people lost one of their major sources of income. No, corporations dodge paying their workers a living wage. Everyone is getting fucked, but that is a separate issue. Still, since that’...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

When I stop to think about it, I’m pretty sure a lot of voice actors would be put out of work if anime and video game dubs were to only allow actors who happen to match the ethnicity of the characters they play. I’m not so sure that would be the proper way of addressing inclusion in the field of vo...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

But you're not seeing them. That's the point. You'll only know anything about the race or gender of the person who does voiceovers if you go out of your way to look it up. You're hearing them. You looking into and learning about them. People inevitably learn this shit. It inevitably comes down to "...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

Does representation really matter when it comes to voice actors for animated shows? It's not like you ever see the people behind the voices. Yes. Representation leads to inspiration. Positive media images re-enforce self-confidence. This applies to all minorities. If I have to see one more cis man ...

Going to have to put my foot down when it comes to ablism. Discrimination against the disabled is very real and that includes those with both visible and invisible disabilities.
