Re: Worst fight in all of Dragon Ball

Yamcha vs everyone, except Tien and probably Goku (in beginning of series).

Re: I liked Super 17.

Super 17 doesn't make sense, isn't Cell supposed to be the ultimate Artificial Human? Why not just make another Cell? Wouldn't it be worth it? Or make a time machine and grab another one? Force them to fuse? Super Cell >>>>>>> Super 17. I feel like Super 17 would beat the shit out of Whis if he did...

Re: Did the Android arc mark the downfall of Dragon Ball?

http://i.imgur.com/qvt5xiH.jpg He was fighting , he just didn't like to fight, he just didn't think the fight had any purpose. Do you honestly think that Gohan in the Namek arc thought all of those battles he fought had a purpose beyond saving the lives of his friends? Everything was okay here, he ...

Re: Favorite Filler

Well, to be fair I loved all the filler. What I enjoyed the most were fillers about Gohan's training, which greatly developed him, and Otherworld tournament, which introduced to us a lot of strong fighters, similarly to what original Dragon Ball did. Gohan's life in high school in the beginning of B...

Re: Did the Android arc mark the downfall of Dragon Ball?

He is, but it's very sudden, and there doesn't seem like there's much of an impetus for it. My issue with it is that what does he expect to happen when he tells Cell he doesn't want to fight? But it is not really sudden, about 5 years passed after ending of Namek saga. People change in a less amoun...

Re: I liked Super 17.

I agree about the power up,as he was able to beat up GT trunks who never stopped training. People think he stopped b ut he just didn't train as much as vegeta and goku. However the reason super7 is so strong is explained in GT,hell fighter 17 can only be at full power if he has 17 to fill in his mi...

Re: Are BoG and RoF dragging the series downhill?

words about Dragon Ball not being as good as other things and it being objectively bad because of it At first, I just laughed at the idea of something being "objectively bad" and decided to not go into an argument about it with you.

Re: Are BoG and RoF dragging the series downhill?

Yu-Gi-Oh! is the furthest thing from well written. I don't think I've ever been so irritated reading a manga series before. It's far more inconsistent than Dragon Ball. I think I counted about 4-5 plot holes in Yugi's duel with Pegasus alone. The anime's even worse about it. They just ignore what's...

Re: Is it wrong to not accept DBS/BoG/RoF etc as canon?

There is nothing wrong with that. It is also worth noting, that so far Battle of Gods and Revival of F (especially) seem to have much more involvement from Toriyama than Super, so if anything has considered to be canon, then it should be these two movies. Super is just another GT. But of course, all...

There's hope for Toei.

Re: Official Announcement Thread & Discussion

Toriyama working with Toei on plot, I don't want it. I want series fully by Toriyama. No series has a one man writer on everything. Toriyama will probably give them the main plot points and Toie will fill in the gaps. For example,he'll write that the series begins with Goku&Goten hanging out and To...

Yup that is exactly what I think it means.

The female characters don't have to be badass fighters. I just want them to actually DO something. Well, Bulma was important in almost every arc. When you compare her to female heroes from other classic shonen (like Saint Seiya , Hokuto no Ken, Yuyu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, etc), she was quite pro...

Re: Super as continuation of Z/Kai or Manga/Toriyama movies?

Really? Evolution happened? Even Akira Toriyama outright said he hated it, didn't he? As the creator, as far as the scenario and characterization are concerned, I get a feeling of “Whaa?”, but the director, everyone in the cast, and the crew on-set are ultra high-caliber. Maybe it’s correct for bot...
