Re: I feel like the slow pacing for DBZ in the anime and filler works to its advantage

Kai didn't cover too few chapters, it just did so poorly. The Saiyan arc is only, what, 48 chapters? Dragon Ball chapters are usually only 15 pages long, too. Covering four chapters per episode (60 pages) isn't too much to ask for, especially if you make some cha ges to better fit the different med...

Kai moves really slow, it just has poor editing and no resources to make a properly adapted take on DB.

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

I'll leave hashing out an entire plot to our hypothetical writers, suffice it to say original DB was brought up for this very reason. One thing that complicates it is that everyone has a family now, they're not rationally free to go cavorting around the literal multiverse. That's what I was worried...

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

I wouldn't know, I haven't watched Pokemon in 20 years, but DB is not Pokemon. It's a story where characters grow and change. Pokemon is all about keeping the status quo and the plots are all interchangeable. Dragon Ball is about maintaining the status quo now. Furthermore, that a staff can make a ...

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

If Pokemon can be enjoyable and fresh after 23 years--arguably becoming increasingly better since 2006--then Dragon Ball can also become better. Heck, ace Pokemon writer Tomioka Atsuhiro is literally working on Dragon Ball and his episodes have easily been some of the best scripts.

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

That could be interesting but what kind of exploration? In DBZ, they only left the Earth to search for DBs on Namek. Other than that, Goku only visited Yardrat because that's where the Ginyu ship was headed and New Namek to find a new guardian but he never had any interest in exploring the rest of ...

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

Gokuu solving mysteries would be fun. I definitely want to see more sides of Gokuu, not just the same side over and over. At the very least I want tournaments to be less linear and more about the preliminaries having different types of competitions, too. Dragon Ball needs to stop only valuing direct...

Re: Why did Toei hire Yamamoto for Kai in the first place?

In addition to what Mike said, anime is normally created by in-house staff just hiring who they already know from prior jobs or drinking parties and being like "hey, I got three months to get a composer for this show that airs in three months can you hook me up with some tracks?"

Re: How Would You Handle the Music of Modern Dragon Ball?

Assuming that Kikuchi couldn't just score two hundred new pieces of music, I would call in Sagisu Shirou to score. Sagisu has a handle on multiple tones and instrument stles, so he would be able to turn in a lot of varied music to give the franchise an exciting sound. Lol, ur a gurl now. Alternativ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

My guess is that we'll get Gokuu challenging Beers on the spot, the battle still landing in Beers' favor but Moro managing to absorb both of their ki. Then, Vegeta saves the day in his seventeenth battle with Moro.

Like...the context of the Videl fight just doesn't make sense. Why in a comic aimed at kids is a onee-chan getting the shit kicked out of her like that?

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

As an adult who been abused herself I do think the Videl versus Spopovitch match is inappropriate for a kids franchise. The brutal imagery is just inappropriate and I wonder what message it sends kids when only a woman--a relatively important new character--gets smashed around by a man. The older I'...

We don't know if Dragon Quest is a special case made special by circumstances or a deliberate attempt at beginning series with healthy production schedules or not. It would be nice if it was, though.

Re: Dragon Ball Deliverance Ep 03

There's some nice animation and storyboarding. I find the sound work to be the weakest aspect, though. Really bad acting and music and it kind of drags the whole thing down. Very much.

The dialogue is also really bad. It's too grandiose and trying to sound deep.

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

Gohan in high school! I wanted to see him as a fish out of water more and the sort of weird couple dynamic of him and Videl. It's such a fun idea for a shoujo spin-off, too.
