Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Hey, it's better than "Tuffles," at least (usually I don't mind the dub names, but that one just sounds dumb)... though I would prefer something that at least keeps the R from "fruits" rather than randomly changing it to an L. Wasn't expecting Bardock challenging King Veggie for the throne at all. I...

Re: Uub + Buu = ???

"Majuub" always seemed really weird to me, too. I generally just call him Uub regardless of whether or not he's fused with/absorbed Buu or not (and I'm not a big fan of GT, so... that doesn't come up often with me anyway), but if you really need a name for the fused/absorbed form then "Super Uub" is...

Re: Original DB on Blu-Ray

Okay, why the hell are so many people "quoting" that now? It's not even funny, and never was, so why is that transforming into a meme? ...you pretty much answered your own question right there. That's basically the definition of a meme (99% of the time, anyway): something that isn't funny which a l...

Re: The emergence of stronger enemies after Cell and in DBGT

Sorry, it was early in the morning, and I was pretty tired. I worded it pretty awfully - I meant the result of a bunch of the strongest warheads today being used :oops: Of course, I'm mostly just spewing a factoid from my HS Geography teacher from 9th grade. I'm guessing you're referring to the sta...

Re: Boots and gloves.

Could be that the people wearing them just tend to focus more of their ki into the hands and feet (to make their attacks hit harder and all, and also when charging blasts in the case of the hands... don't think anyone ever "kicks" a ki blast at someone, anyway XD), and as a side-effect the boots and...

Re: Voices In Your Head (While Reading the Manga)

Hmm... I'm not sure. I know I've never had the Japanese voices come to mind much at all (partly because I still can't stand how high-pitched Goku and family are in Japanese... I mean, I understand giving Goku a "young-sounding" voice because he's silly and pure-hearted but the Japanese voice just se...

Re: Viz manga translation?

Hmm... I guess "monster" as a translation for "magical/demonic being" sort of works. Not sure if it's ever really translated that way (not really too familiar with Japanese words and ways of translating them), but "monster" is pretty generic and can cover a pretty wide variety of creatures--like how...

Ha! The Buu-lookalike brought along by Babidi's son in the "Master Roshi far off in the future" chapter has bear ears and a nose, and is called "Puu." Winnie the Pooh reference? (Especially if he's yellow instead of pink, heh.)

Re: How strong is Satan?

I think the problem here is that 10 for start-of-Dragonball Goku. I mean, he had a power level of 2 even as a baby, so it's kind of ridiculous that growing up PLUS having some martial arts/basic ki training from Grandpa Gohan didn't boost him up higher than just 10, especially considering that the a...

Or, y'know, if Gohan was just more powerful than Vegeta still, like he was the last time the two were compared to each other. I mean, there was a huuuuuge gap between Gohan after his power-up and Vegeta, even SSj2 Vegeta, at the end of the Buu saga... it just seems kinda silly that GT had Gohan myst...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I actually preferred the Bojack chapter's art to this one, because it was different and looked somewhat dark and edgy. I would've described it as "really ugly and trying too hard to be dark and edgy," but eh... different people like different stuff I guess. Some of the faces (Freeza's especially) i...

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Vegeta managed to fight evenly with an #18 who was even stronger than her future counterpart ...if by "fight evenly" you mean "last a little longer than everyone else, but only because #18 wasn't really trying at first, then get both his arms broken and pass out." But yeah, Vegeta would almost defi...

Re: Aborted Fanfiction

I thought a black hole was not literally a "hole," but just an area where so much stuff has compressed into such a tiny space (like after a really big star "dies," and all the stuff from said star kind of collapses in to a very, very small area compared to what would be normal for that much stuff) t...

Re: Do you think Androids #16, #17 and #18 sleep?

#17 and #18 are enhanced humans, so I'm pretty sure they do need to sleep. We don't know the exact nature of their enhancements, but the fact is that it's our brains that need to sleep much more than the rest of our bodies; muscles and other organs have a much easier time dealing with lack of sleep ...

Re: What's your favourite beam attack?

Makankosappo, definitely. (Though it does get stuck with pretty much the most embarrassing English dub name, and one of the few that I actually will not use despite otherwise not caring much about dub name changes.)

Re: Aborted Fanfiction

it ended with Goku and Vegeta confronting a bunch of King Cold's old hunting buddies, who try to use some kind of poison or disease. Wow, odd coincidence there. I remember an idea for a DBZ story I had a while back, where at one point Goku would end up on Freeza's homeworld where some of King Cold'...

Re: Fusion in the Cell Saga?

Yamhan might make the characters relevant again, but I don't think it would help them out that much, other than maybe the Shin Kikoho being amped up even more. Tenshinhan couldn't even scratch Semiperfect Cell with it though, so I'm not sure Yamhan's would do much more than push Perfect Cell back u...

Well, maybe the tail is a bit reptiley (though the internal-fluids-draining stinger on the end certainly isn't!)... but I've always saw Cell as more bug than anything else, with some features of the other DNA that he's made of mixed in (Saiyan near-death boos...

Re: Something I always wondered (transformaitons)

The Super Saiyan transformations are pretty much instantaneous, but I always figured that if someone did hit them hard enough to cause any damage mid-transformation it would knock them out of it and probably back to base form. I mean, people do get knocked out of Super Saiyan, so it should be even e...
