Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

I wouldn't call anything he's said on the Vic thread the least bit "civil", also i've seen plenty of racists act all "Civil" while still being low-key racist and sexist so civility in itself does not necessarily mean you are a good person. Sure but you're jumping straight to calling him a racist, s...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

But Genisys actually performed worse domestically then Dark Fate did. Genisys grossed $89 million domestically while Dark Fate grossed $62 million so Dark Fate was lowest grossing domestically and internationally since the first Terminator. There's still no real evidence to suggest that fewer peopl...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

The problem with that is white people do not experience anywhere NEAR the amount of discrimination that minorities do and he fails to grasp that, he's like one of those people that keeps saying "All Lives Matter" in response to the concern groups like Black Lives Matter raise. When you've spent as ...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

That had nothing to do with boycotts, Terminator films have underperformed since the third one at least so Dark Fate's performance wasn't surprising in the least. Rise of Skywalker still made a shitload of money so there's no real evidence of a boycott there, if anything it's more likely just fatig...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

I see nothing "respectful" about repeating arguments verbatim that i've seen by Gamergaters on social media all the time, this whole "oh white people are discriminated against just as much as minorities are!" and "men are sexualized just as much as women!" nonsense is a dangerous lie that I won't a...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

As Jim Sterling pointed out a number of times, boycotts of products pretty much never work because so few people can actually commit to them and the company isn't going to care about a vocal minority of people when most will happily buy their products, complaining on social media is actually far mo...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

I don't think any business gives a damn what fans have to say because opinions vary wildly. The opinion that speaks loudest is willingness to buy. I don't think that's a bad thing, either. How is a business supposed to judge whether they are doing something well if someone complains, but continues ...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

First of, sorry if this topic is rude, i don't wanna start any flame war, lets keep this discussion civil :) Funimation cancelled Ishuzoku Reviewers, making it impossible to watch legally, what is more worrying, is they still hold rights to it, and might not release it on DVD/BD, my question is, ha...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

I'm not sure of the influence TFS had on the revival. TFS started in 2008 but I believe Kai was already in production since it came out the following year. If it wasn't for TFS and other fan projects that came out around that time like DBM, Toyble's AF, and New Age, I probably wouldn't have joined a...

Re: DB's Revival

It doesn't mean Frieza won't try to control Broly again. Vegeta's upgraded SSJB was one hell of an ass-pull. Yet here it is. Freeza's failure to control Broly was more of a gag scene since Goku and Vegeta left him to distract and get beat by Broly for an hour while they learned fusion. At the end o...

Re: DB's Revival

I'm not saying they will happen. I'm simply saying they're just examples of what can happen. More generally, all it takes is two things for Frieza to be truly villainous. 1. Remain a horrible person, which he is. 2. The power balance shifts to his advantage. That's all it takes to be an antagonist ...

Re: DB's Revival

It really wouldn't take much creativity. All it would take is Frieza doing something downright horrible and reprehensible, which would still be completely in-character for him. Random example, he kills baby Bulla. That's all it would take. There was also that one goal of his where he wanted to reig...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

DBZ Abridged is one of the longest running DB fan projects. Going by the other threads in this section, several fan projects are abandoned or put on an indefinite hiatus unfortunately I'm glad TFS gave the series a good ending point before they transition to the new style. I would also respect their...

The toothpaste is out of the bottle. There's no going back to him being the ultimate evil. He's lost too many times for that. I dunno why you think of all these things in terms of absolutes. Of course he can go back to being truly villainous. Creative writing has no limits. What creative writing wo...

Re: DB's Revival

He may not stay that way you know. He may go back to being truly villainous. Him currently being a minor annoyance, could even be something they're doing on purpose as a way to hit us with a surprise later. Honestly I think it's the opposite and they're trying to make Freeza less villainous as a wa...

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

I had this theory that the Dragon Room approached Toriyama to reboot other old movie villains and he declined so Toyotaro decided to mash a bunch of them together to create Moro. Besides the similarities Brojack mentioned, Moro absorbs a planet's lifeforce like the Tree of Might or Big Gete Star sin...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I'd rather put it the other way around, it's surprising how DB hasn't received a revival for so long in the dark ages while so many other shows were/are getting a revival on a regular bases or kept receiving new content on a regular basis. To state a few recurring 'stories' or 'franchises' besides ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Super's story will continue for sure, I just don't think there's much room for it to continue for much longer due to how fast they jumped the shark on certain things, such as UI. The power levels and threats we're getting now aren't fit for a long term plan. That's another reason why I don't think ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I don't remember the exact wording, but Toriyama said something along the lines of "I'm happy DB can continue beyond me" when talking about the DB room. In terms of 2008, I agree they could've went ahead, which is what they decided to finally do in 2013 but got lucky when he got involved, but accor...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I think what he meant was that things will depend on Toriyama as long as he's involved with the franchise. This revival started without him (BOG wasn't originally written by him) but due to how bad the reception was for Evolution and how he was treated by Fox, he decided to get involved without bei...
