There are many illustration jobs that have similar overworking problems. The "Crunch" work ethic is unethical.
Yeah, work culture is so toxic. Even people with fuck-you money fall into this pitfall because capitalism is always demanding more and that has bled into 99+% of our society.

Re: Looking back, most transformations in Z were just lazy ways to extend the fight

Yeah, the relentless schedule honestly is a very plausible reason for any lack of motivation or drop in creativity. With Cell and Boo, it was pretty clear Toriyama wasn't writing with the same creative fervor, and I'm a fan of those arcs. Hell, I'm to tired to write a book I have half-way outlined ...

Re: Looking back, most transformations in Z were just lazy ways to extend the fight

Anyone who has ever experienced being stuck in a job they hate and being unable to feel relaxed because of their job should, in fact, understand the pain of sleeping four hours a day for ten years while physically laboring 12-20 hours the rest of the day. The weekly scheduling has literally broken a...

Re: Looking back, most transformations in Z were just lazy ways to extend the fight

Far be it for me to defend a rich asshole but perhaps the weekly comic release format is inhumane and that inhumanity leads to a lack of creativity because its hard to be creative when you're not sleeping or living a life.

Re: Why does the OG Dragon Ball gets so little love from TOEI / BANDAI etc

DB can be rebooted and still contain its classical content, but ultimately it would be for a different audience aka an adult one so i don't think Toei would be happy investing in an anime reboot that would be R rated at minimum. If they did that they could only make such a thing for two different t...

Capitalism, baby!

A profit-driven system turns everything into a competition to monetize properties. The less one can monetize a work the more useless it is!

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

Yeah, younger fans (or just fans with less responsibilities) treat fandom like a competition. Once you've got more important things to do in life you begin to cut down on that type of thinking because all that matters is relieving stress, not needlessly making more by pitting two different branches ...

Re: Parts of Dragon Ball that you avoid showing to children as a parent or caretaker

Oof, yeah, that might suck. I'd probably like to show them Star Trek , at least. Deep Space Nine is so important as a work of art and progressive television that I think it'd be educational in that respect. Yeah, it's like how my dad isn't into movies/TV/novels at all and is massive sports fan. I h...

Re: Parts of Dragon Ball that you avoid showing to children as a parent or caretaker

Honestly, there is just so much else out there that is better I don't really see a need to show my kids Dragon Ball. I'd be more interested in seeing what they and their friends want to follow instead so that they don't feel like I'm pressuring them into watching what I like. If my kid took an inte...

Re: Parts of Dragon Ball that you avoid showing to children as a parent or caretaker

Fun fact: my niece is a big fan of Boku no Hero Academia, Fruits Basket and The Promised Neverland. It scares me to think of what she might think about the former's trans characters, especially Magne because I'm not out to her as a woman and her parents are not queer-friendly to say the least. It sc...

Re: Dragon Ball Super Gets Cancelled Overseas Over Sexual Harassment Claims

It certainly goes to show how teaching empathy and building bonds with different types of people are necessary at a young age and on a societal level. The idea of "every person for themselves" splinters people off from reality and turns folks against one another while the powerful run off with all o...

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

I don't care about what Toriyama thinks above what I think. I need to be convinced to change my mind and even then I don't need my love of apples to be defeated by my love of baby spinach. I like Super and I like GT, all for different reasons, just like how I like the Hunt for the Dragon Balls and t...

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

Continuity is so stifling. You can tell few continuity people create stuff of their own. Like, sometimes you want to use continuity and other times you just want to write Gokuu being a fucking DILF who supports his son's taking care of a pet dragon.
