Re: Between the Funimation dub of Kai and their dub of Super, which would you say is better?

I get the feeling that the reason Vale’s voice sounds the way it does nowadays is because he’s not a twenty-something anyway. Either that or he’s a smoker. Apparently he did smoke for a while or so I've heard. Might work for a character like Sanji from One Piece but not for Trunks. But the thing, h...

Re: Super's Manga vs Super's Anime Discussion

Anime Fused Zamasu's attacks are generic? What? Point me to another Dragon Ball villain who could condense their energies into a celestial halo that emitted waves of lightning against any attacker, conjure an endless stream of red-colored blades that exploded upon impact, or create sentient life in...

Re: I love Toyotaro’s Kale in the DBS Manga...

I actually do like the dynamic here, where she is actually much stronger than Caulifla but represses herself because she feels she owes Caulifla her respect. Thus it makes sense why her base form is like playing guardian angel over Caulfla and often sneaks around or zips by to help her but not to he...

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

You're delusional. Hit legitimately caught Jiren off guard and knocked Jiren to the edge of the ring in the anime using pure skill and strategy before Jiren overpowered him. Unlike in the magna, Jiren was just screwing around with him the entire time. So Jiren going to the edge was nothing more tha...

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

Instead of making everyone weak and suppressing Goku & co to their levels for a stupid reason, how about you make everyone strong and make Goku & co have some sort of challenge? That's far more interesting. I agree, we have 80 characters, make the best use of them. As in, make each match-up meaning...

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

More importantly, DB's MO has always been to have characters not fight at full strength. Testing and playing with each other before they go at it for real. It's called escalation. and that's been a part of the battle anime since forever. So I'm not entirely sure why it bothers you in this instance....

Re: Staging DBS as a midquel was a big mistake

Kai also failed and The reason why GT failed was because people were tired of dragon ball and GT brought nothing new to the table to keep them invested. No, Kai failed in Japan because it was redundant to Japanese fans, and that they didn't like the replaced actors. It makes sense if they didn't ne...

I wish people could do the same as I did for those episodes like they would do with manga chapters they may have been upset with. Maybe they just need help understanding it better.

Re: Staging DBS as a midquel was a big mistake

Toei went to Toriyama because they had 2 failed Dragon ball series under their belt and Toriyma's works were far more successful. Two? They just had GT and the only reason it failed because they couldn't market it at the time. Super is in a different time. People saying they cried seeing their chil...

Re: Staging DBS as a midquel was a big mistake

Well, you're right on that, most people throw around the word canon while forgetting about its actual meaning, like it's some sort of seal of approval. But, I think that Super is considered canon because its foundations are born from Toriyama's head, unlike with GT. Thats usually how I pick up on i...

Re: Staging DBS as a midquel was a big mistake

No, people say that GT is not canon because it is not canon. It has nothing to do with liking or disliking. Actually it does, regarding reference or discussion. Saying GT is noncanon has been arbitrary and always has. People who push it as a discredit to GT see it as how they can justify their own ...

Re: Things that grind your gears

We haven’t even seen Zalama yet. How can his design annoy you? (Just so you know, the Super Dragon is NOT Zalama) Its an old post, though I don't remember the dragon's name and assumed they were the same character in casual association. When people say things like Super Saiyan Kami or Dragon Ball C...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Gohan did NOT make a comeback during the ToP, it is in fact the exact opposite. I agree they completely dropped the ball on Gohan for the TOP. I don't understand what was so noble about 17, choosing life over a boat. How hi-tech does a boat have to be to require the Super Dragonballs? Its hard not ...

Re: Kaioken Blue vs Mastered Super Saiyan Blue. Which is Better?

That's just the thing. I see no substance in Complete SSB that Kaioken/Blue doesn't have, nor even regular SSB. Like, what can Complete SSB do that regular SSB can't? It has nothing unique that I can see value in, doesn't really mesh with the concept of SSB I've taken a liking too, and just doesn't...

Re: Kaioken Blue vs Mastered Super Saiyan Blue. Which is Better?

I just can't agree with the arguments in favour of Complete SSB. There's just something....."off" about the whole idea to me. It's probably just personal preference muddying the waters, but there's a real lack of spectacle and thematic purpose for the concept for me, at least in comparison to SSB/K...

Not sure what show you guys are watching but the days of training intensively for years to get new forms or serious powerups have gone by the wayside especially in the last 2 arcs. In the Super-era maybe post ROF where, the series takes a lot of shortcuts around the actual depth Z was built on. I d...

Since the anime is over, I think no matter if you liked one more than another (like I do), but this is the only 'new' content we are getting now, so we should praise the manga even more. Praise is a strong word, how about embrace That sounds better than praising something that may not deserve it. I...

Re: Kaioken Blue vs Mastered Super Saiyan Blue. Which is Better?

How does the Kaioken expand SSB? It has nothing to do with the use of Blue, it was a call-back made on something Goku already had. Agreed with this part. Kaioken is compatible with Blue, but it doesn't really expand upon its mechanics and concepts like Complete Blue does. It's just a multiplier tha...
