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

It's just -- there's not a lot left to discuss in relation to this topic. Roshi sucks, some people complained, now it's delayed until it gets edited. I'm not sure there was a lot of great deep discussion here before, mostly it was someone going "THE LEFT WANTS TO CENSOR EVERYTHING" and us saying "Y...

Re: Did you know the original English Gohan was in a Friday the 13th movie?

The first English Bulma Lalaina Lindjberg was in the Sabrina the Teenage Witch tv movie that came out before the tv show, and is different aside from still having Melissa Joan Hart and the best friend with a different name. She plays an older mean girl and was pretty in a swimsuit. (Waits as hetero...

I'll agree with Jason Takes Manhattan being wthe weakest entry. Love the song at the end though. I've known about this for a while, it's pretty cool. Someone recently pointed out to me that Ted Cole (Yamcha in the Ocean dub) was a background character in Scary Movie . Wow! That's even more mindblow...

Re: What is the drama with Resurrection F?

Christ, this movie was six years ago? I was literally still pretending to be a guy when the film came out. Anyway, the movie is six years old. Why is there drama about Gokuu killing Freeza when Vegeta barely says or experiences anything in the film? This was Gokuu's film. What is people's obsession...

Re: Who else likes Chi-Chi more than Bulma?

Matsui Aya is the only female writer that we know of to have worked on the cartoon series. None of the series directors have been women, either, and only one of the episode directors--Ishitani Megumi--was a woman and that was for the last episode of Super (save for uncredited work as an assistant e...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I personally don’t really see Kefla as anything more than an obstacle for Universe 7. She doesn’t come across as much of a character to me. She’s not a fusion from Steven Universe. She just feels like all the other Dragon Ball fusions, in my opinion. Kefla isn't a separate person. She's just two Sa...

Re: Who else likes Chi-Chi more than Bulma?

The way she was fighting with Chichi about Vegeta and Trunks being better than Chichi's guys considering Chichi's family actually need the money..just..ugh. She would not have been that way in the earliest sagas, she was actually nice and cool That was anime filler. In the manga it wasn't like that...

Re: I feel like the Super anime (or a continuation of it?) has been quietly canceled

and maybe a brief retelling of Broly and Super Hero before telling new stories. NO. We do NOT NEED more movie retellings! Retellings would be cool! They could include the deleted scenes from Broli and then also give us a hand drawn version of Super Hero with other episode directors' takes on the st...

Re: Did you know the original English Gohan was in a Friday the 13th movie?

Jason Takes Manhattan predates the earliest English dubs by at least 8 years right? I wonder if she auditioned or they just randomly plucked her name out of a hat, thats so random, cool tidbit though. I would imagine she had to audition. It is pretty cool that a lot of the Ocean Group cast members ...

Re: Who else likes Chi-Chi more than Bulma?

It's not like I read 99% of ABED's posts, either. Anyway, I have nearly 15,000 posts on this forum and have been a member since I was a teenage girl. I've got opinions driven by a lifetime of experience. But hey, let's question why the woman offering basic, common sense criticism is a Dragon Ball fan.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The Sapphic subtext really helped sell Kefla, too. It's not something a you'd get if you weren't a WLW or a fan of WLW stories or raised on thing like, well, subtext.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Couldn't the same still be said for Gotenks, since Trunks is shown being the more confident between him and Goten? Goten follows Trunks' lead because he's older, and because he's meeker/more polite by nature and upbringing. It wasn't treated as an arc for Goten, but it's a similar dynamic still. Ma...

Re: How would you feel about a Bardock series?

I like how the comic is currently using Bardock in small doses. I think that we should save Bardock's storylines for places where they can intersect and affect Gokuu's character arc.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Ah, OK I get that. I suppose the writers could make the Z-era Fusion characters have arcs if they wanted to, but they're moreso techniques than characters outright. Personally, I enjoy how they're employed throughout the series, as there's a certain awe and mystique about them for me, but for chara...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Kefla is basically just Caulifla in terms of personality. Kefla is the culmination of the combined Sapphic arc and the liberation of Kale from her insecurity with regards to her and Caulifla's relationship into being in-synch with her partner and engaged with the battle. Kale's arc lies in that she...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Kefla and Merged Zamasu are the only good fusions. I'm not invested in the characters of the fusions because they're not really characters with arcs. Gotenks is basically just Trunks, so I suppose he technically 'has' potential to have an arc...but well, he doesn't. Kefla and Merged Zamasu just work...
