Re: Are there other shonen you acknowledge as better written than Dragon Ball?

I think plenty of comics aimed at kids are better than Dragon Ball. I also don't think I really care because that just seems superfluous to my ability to read and enjoy the comics I like! My girlfriend was suggesting I pick up some shoujo the other day so I picked up Kiss Him, Not Me and it really r...

Re: Anyone surprised the original run of Dragon Ball/DBZ/GT only lasted about 10 years?

I'm not surprised because the manner in which the series was handled by the anime staff really showed a lack of interest in operating in a very large box of ideas. Eventually they were going to collapse. From what I've heard the head writer had bigger plans and ideas for the anime but was constantl...

I feel like a loser compare to most of people in this thread. I'm 30 in a month and I still live at home with no proper education.
Don't feel bad, society is built to make those things happen.

Re: What would you like Dragon Ball to cross-over with?

it's especially kinda sad because sasaki has so much nuance in his performances and specific mannerisms that really help yusuke as a character, there's a reason he sounds and talks just like tetuso from akira and it sure as hell isn't because sasaki (pre voice break) lacked range. shigeru chiba did...

Re: What would you like Dragon Ball to cross-over with?

Oh, I totally agree. The dub is awful and really makes all the characters less funny because of the shitty edgelord humor. Hiei and Yuusuke are so much more fun in the original because they aren't walking sarcasm bots.

Re: What would you like Dragon Ball to cross-over with?

I think people confuse the dub version of Hiei with being Hiei and being a sort of Vegeta-lite. The original version's Hiei is, well, not an annoying twat.

Something where the characters do not get along. Let's see the characters contrast and be at odds!! That level of drama is exactly what crossovers lack!

Re: The Goten Thread

I like GT Goten. I think it's a hilarious contrast by having him be this ladies man. Personally, I wanna see Goten be a super smooth bisexual. Put him in scenarios that are not strictly about fighting. I'd like that too. Goten always seems to have a bit of a precocious "thing" with Trunks, in my vi...

Re: What do you prefer? The more battle orientated style of Z or the adventuristic aspect of DB?

This thread is reminding me how I wish we'd get a new animated project set during the five year gap before the Saiyan invasion. Heck, it could introduce a new enemy and then bring that enemy back for the post-Granola era, too! Something were the 'rules' of the Saiyan arc and forward were not set in ...

An off-topic forum is just going to draw in more weirdoes. The occasional thread is bad enough as it is, an off topic forum will just become an even bigger cesspool.

Dragon Ball isn't an 18+ erotica, it's a series for children. I don't think it is wrong for us adults to keep in mind a degree of objectivity and responsibility when discussing the series. Remain at least somewhat objective--it's not hard!!

Re: Who should succeed Masako Nozawa?

If Toriyama wants to be involved he should make his own anime.

Hell, he made a comic already. He'd already be giving permission to a licensee to create an animated adaption of his work. It's not like DB and Toriyama are being victimized here.

Re: What do you prefer? The more battle orientated style of Z or the adventuristic aspect of DB?

I definitely think Dragon Ball is inappropriate for children due to its content. It's also unsuitable as a mainstream adult work because its content is offensive and has no intended elicitation of an erotic response.
