Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Is English your native language? Because if not, it may explain why you and Gaffer Tape are talking past each other about the meaning of "script". Gaffer is correct as far as I know. The script is the script, and the outline is the outline. Thats not it. If the rough draft is closer to what I'm des...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

No. No it can't. That is not what a script is. That is what an outline is or a treatment is or a synopsis is. You can have a rough draft script. You can have several early versions of scripts that get replaced with a final draft script, but for film a script is ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS every single l...

Gaffer Tape wrote: Um, but none of those things are what a "script" is, so why would you assume that's what it means? An outline, a summary, an index, a synopsis... none of those things are even close to what "script" means.
No. A script is/can be a draft of a story's premise. Not essentially the final format.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

He straight said so, himself, that he wrote the script. What more do you want? Last time I checked, story =/= script. Check again because they arent the same. Regardless I shame Akira for his sheer laziness. Yes he was always a procrastinator and aloof in focus but this is the worst of them all. DB...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Last I checked script means script and apple means apple and and means and and wrote means wrote. Nope. No need to get comedic. Writing a script can just be the outline or index of a vague summary of a story's plot or chapter synophsis. Writing the story out itself is writing it line for line. (whi...

Re: Episode of Bardock was apparently dubbed in English.

I think it's fair to say that Bardock is being treated as the Boba Fett of Dragon Ball. By trying to make him more special than he is, you diminish what *did* make him special in the first place. Exactly. His significance came from the fact that his inferiority was what emphasized how strong Freeza...

Re: Episode of Bardock: Giant On-Going Manga + Anime Discuss

This special seemed really unecessary to me. They could have chosen any other character to flesh out... but they choose to just give Bardock the now pointlessly redundant not-so-legendary SSJ form to do what Goku basically already does... hmm.... a character who as already very well established just...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

He did write the script. You seem to have skipped over this post. Unless "script" just means just the plot summery. Its not clarified what "script" to him means. Because he didnt direct the story, that I know. If he wrote the script and refused to check its consistancy with the prior saga then I'm ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Uh no, not really, AT had huge input in what happened in BoG compared to GT. He came up with the story. Even if he allegedly "wrote" it. He had a outside script writter and director. He at most probably came up with the plot and wrote the summary and surpervised it. He didnt write it himself, regar...

Re: My Pro Adult Gohan Rant

The side of Gohan that represses his Saiyan instincts greatly is what his character development could have been based on. His pl...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2013 Movie Thread: "Battle of Gods

There's two SSj levels. The one that everyone knows about and the one that Freeza's family knows about. I guess you mean legends? And we don't know if there are two Super Saiyan legends. I wish people would stop treating that special as canon because it won't work. Bardock cant be the direct legend...

Re: Possibility of Super Saiyan God 2 and 3

I dont think there will be any alternates of SSJGod. I also hope they dont because it isnt a transformation at all really but just unlocked potential like Gohan's mystic form. In comparison it isnt even physically stronger than SSJ3 at all as a multiplyier but remembering that Goku was able to hurt ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I would love an official GT reboot. I actually enjoy GT more than Z, and possibly as much as DB, but it has its faults and could be so much better. I'd be sad to see the soundtrack go though. If there were ever a re-adaptation of Dragon Ball, I'd want it to include a re-written GT, although I know ...

Re: What are funny but dumb things you've heard a DB fan say

Most of the "dumb" things I've heart said about DBZ came out of the Naruto fanboys and the DC haters. Both sides tend to overexaggerate their claims.


Then we have the Broly Fanboys....smh.....

The only issue I really have with DBZ are the ones that were mentioned which are somewhat agreeable. Making everyone who isn't a Saiyan useless A good story knows how to properly balance the relevance of each character. DBZ does not do this. ... and Battle of Gods worsens this expenentially so.

I don't want a Battle of Gods sequel, I'd prefer another original story rather than seing Bills again and the other Gods of Destruction. I wish they could have used the movies to flesh out the backstories of the villains who seriously lacked it like Broly and Buu. Granted Broly is non canon but he ...
