Re: Goku's long absences in the story

. You lose nothing of substantive worth by removing the entire Ginyu Force section. Aside from the Ginyu Force being a lot of fun. And showing had bad things were that Vegeta teamed up with Gohan and Kuririn And show how much stronger Goku had gotten since his fight with Vegeta on earth. Point one ...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

And the writing for excluding Goku kept getting worse. Cell arc was the worst example of this... a heart virus was used to get Goku to be out the story. He just had a titanic battle with Freeza and somehow we have to believe a virus stops him in his tracks. Lmao. Nah, that's fine. Power doesn't mak...

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

Goku should have just arrived during the Freeza fight, yes. You lose nothing of substantive worth by removing the entire Ginyu Force section.

Re: Goku's long absences in the story

The worst application of it was on Namek where Goku arrives and is almost immediately taken out again until he can basically repeat the same beat, again. It's one of the factors that contributes the Ginyu Force feeling very superfluous to the story. It is filler (not in the sense that the term has ...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

. It's much better at being an ensemble show than Dragon Ball is. Dragon Ball isn’t an ensemble show. So there’s that. Goku's the clear main character but there's multiple arcs where he's not even really a participant until the very end. Toriyama tries to show off the supporting cast often and even...

Does anyone have the quote about Goku fighting intentionally at low stamina to cheat UI out?
You mean the quote where Roshi asks if Goku is trying to awaken UI when fighting the Saiyan girls fatigued?
That's the one

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

My problem is Toriyama didn't go far enough in intentionally shit posting people. Those were easily the most fun parts of the movie and they were too far from one another. I wanna see Krillin out-doing Blue Vegeta, SS Gohan getting knocked out by a stray pebble,...

Or let a series that ended its manga in 1995 and its anime in 1997 die... Silly Masenko, nothing ever ends. Not sure what you mean by this. Maybe not changing rules, but retcons to some parts (Beerus ordering to destroy Planet Vegeta, Potara one hour fusion limit etc.) And power levels were very in...

So it's delayed? Well hopefully for a good cut like Goku vs Hearts was from sometime back.

and since I don't think anyone else has said it yet.

NICE!
So long as Yam boards there is no hope.

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

Characters should appear for a purpose, to advance a theme or to play off of someone else or to serve as a good setup/punchline for a joke. They shouldn't be included because of some arbitrary fan quota of appearances. More Bardock, Gine and King Vegeta add nothing: their kids flat out tell us, the ...

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

I assume you are talking specifically about Raditz, Nappa and their fight, which is kind of besides my point (though it would be great to see more of them indeed, but in a different context, contributing a bit more to the tiny story the movie has). Bardock, Gine, King Vegeta and Paragus, however, s...

Re: Why does the Garlic Jr. filler arc exist?

Garlic Jr. was made to save the production. Around the time Goku vs Freeza was animated, the staff realized they messed up and were only about a dozen chapters worth of material behind Toriyama. This lead to the atrocious pacing of the later Namek section. In an effort not to do the entire rest of t...

Broly isn't getting an extended cut. They sotryboarded a version which would've lasted 3 hours then out of that material actually animated about a hundred minutes worth. All that other time is nothing but boards with no animation to speak of unlike BoG which had fully animated stuff existing which w...

I don't like Disney period but I don't in-general trust anyone in America to do DB well. Contrary to what most of the fanbase believes, DB is more than just cool looking designs flying, punching and shooting at each other. Its a series with a very specific kind of attitude to its world, characters, ...
