The main character is asexual.
I could be wrong, but I’m not certain that Toriyama even really knows what asexuality is.

Re: Would General Blue be considered offensive to the LGBTQ+ community in this day and age?

Movies like the MCU movies have a right wing vibe to them. Those movies like glorify the US military and even in the MCU movies, the main heroes that save the day are white. Black Panther barely did anything in Infinity War and Endgame. He should not have died and actually help win against Thanos. ...

Re: The differences between Toei Goku and Manga Goku

One big difference between Toei Goku and Manga Goku has to do with the character’s views on his Saiyan heritage. In the manga, Goku seemed to have no problem accepting the fact that he’s a Saiyan. Sure, he was initially shocked by the revelation, but even within the Saiyan arc, he had no problem inf...

Re: Would General Blue be considered offensive to the LGBTQ+ community in this day and age?

Since we’re talking about Hollywood needing to be more inclusive, I guess it’s worth pointing out that a big reason why you still don’t see much LGBT representation in big blockbusters is because foreign markets like China don’t take kindly to that kind of stuff. There was a big uproar in foreign ma...

Re: When Will We Ever Get Out of the Boo Fight - End of Z Rift?!

The end of Z is such a great finale I’m glad Super is keeping it as the series finale. I’m fine with Goku flying off with Oob serving as the finale of the series, but if Dragon Ball is going to be the kind of series that goes on indefinitely, I’d rather they actually move the story forward. Crammin...

Re: Would General Blue be considered offensive to the LGBTQ+ community in this day and age?

Doesn’t the whole “gay men are in shape” stereotype also exist in the west? I mean, there have long been jokes about He-Man being gay, and he’s ridiculously buff.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Maybe it’s because I’ve never been crazy about Vegeta, but I can’t say I have much interest in him getting an entire arc to himself. I don’t hate him, but I think he worked better as a villain/unholy ally. I don’t see any reason why Dragon Ball should suddenly become his story. It’s the same reason ...

I’ve never been in a relationship, nor do I have any desire to be in one, so maybe I’m not qualified to talk, but I do have some apprehension about labeling any form of infidelity as “scummy”. That might just be because so many people seem to do it, but I feel that if it’s between consenting adults...

In the latest chapter of "Nick Rekieta and Ty Beard Don't Know What The Fuck They're Doing," Rekieta got a C&D from Duck Dynasty over infringement regarding his "Fear the Beard" merchandise.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Weirder than prioritize fights and animation above story and development? Nah, nothing can top that. I think Toei and everyone involved are banking on fans prioritizing the fights over the story and based on Broly's success, it worked. There was a story in Broly. The fighting didn't happen until a ...

For the sake of comparison, here how all the modern Dragon Ball movies have performed when it comes to DVD and Blu-Ray sales in the their first week.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Why would you think a silly looking picture would be convincing? The idea of putting something so important and complex in the hands of a person whose age isn't even in the double digits is so on its face silly - even for a story that revels in silliness. And it's flat out wrong that Trunks doesn't...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I can’t imagine what role Bra could’ve filled in the show. I guess it’s a bit strange that she completely disappeared from the anime after the Super 17 arc, but I think it’s a stretch to say that there was missed potential with her.

Re: The Trimark (BLT) Dub of Dragon Ball

Funi's redub of DB movie 1 was a goddamn mess. Basically, as I'm given to understand it, they based it on, I believe, the BLT script, but tried to remove some of the added dialogue, yet also didn't try to make the remaining dialogue account for the removal of dialogue properly, so some information ...
