Re: General Website Goofs/Errors

I'm not really sure how I feel about this new format. It's gonna take some time getting used to. I think that with a few small tweaks, it can be entirely palatable, to be clear. It's just one of those cases where a lot of minor nagging issues really add up. I'm glad the staff has acknowledged our, ...

Re: General Website Goofs/Errors

The new default theme is downright offputting. Even if it's a change forced on you guys by the forum host, the fact that they couldn't accommodate something more similar to the old look is incredibly disappointing. Right off the bat -- having yellow usernames against a light background is unnecessar...

Re: Vic Mignogna

What these anime-avatar-wielding armchair detectives (in all their faux skepticism) failed to account for is the fact that multiple sources, including Vic's very own portfolio, fully corroborates his occupation/location at the time of her story. The fact that they're now backpedaling to "Well she st...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I do feel people should consider both sides hefore coming to their conclusion. I don't, because the #KickVic "side" (collectively, at least) hasn't done anything remotely bordering on sexual assault. It's not about "taking sides" once you understand the circumstances and behavioral patterns surroun...

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

Even if you find that his skills are uninteresting at the moment, it's early to say because it's just an introduction. But it's not an introduction, and we're well past the introductions. That's my point. Remember that it was the previous chapter's cliffhanger that teased Moro's magic. There's no w...

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

I think it's a bit rushed to judge Moro's powers at the moment. As I've said yesterday, I'm judging Moro's abilities based on what we've been presented with so far. There have been plenty of pages of him in action to opine about this. Three monthly-length chapters is more than enough time to adequa...

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

He absorbs the life energy of planets and living beings, then what? Gets stronger and throws meteors? Is that all there is to his magic? Piccolo has more interesting magic than that, jeez. That pretty accurately summarizes my problem with Moro. He's such a "then what" villain. Sucking the life out ...

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

The story concept for SDBH are splendid. Problem is the execution leaves much to be desired for me. I disagree. You see Toyotaro getting badmouthed for his ideas feeling like fanfiction (I guess it doesn't help that he was associated with AF at one point) but this "rebellion against the gods" tripe...

I wish I didn't know as much about this as I do, but Blue Evolution's hair is actually colored that way in a lot of merchandise art and even Yamamuro's production sheets.

Re: How much have you spent on the franchise?

No idea. Most of it comes from the original manga, VHS tapes and old videogames from my childhood, but the grand total is more than likely well over a thousand. I also no longer have the old stuff and probably gave it away at some point. These days I'll only invest in the franchise if it's Kai (whic...

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

I’m asking why you’re against Toyo using SSBKK and SSBE instead of his knock offs in the manga, since SSBKK and SSBE ALREADY EXIST. And I believe I thoroughly answered your question. I'm against Toyotaro using Blue Kaioken and Blue Evolution because of how little impact they actually have in Super....

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

I feel like we're trotting semantics at this point, so I'll just leave it at "neither Toyotaro nor merchandising and supplementary materials refer to them as anything other than Super Saiyan Blue, and the dialogue also refers to them simply as Super Saiyan Blue, so the manga didn't intend for them t...

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

If we are to perceive them as just being "the same form but stronger" we will see it by the fact that they are in the same form, but are stronger. I'm not sure if you're purposely misreading my post or I didn't fully clarify, but that's exactly how it's presented in the manga. The dialogue is fully...

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

Ah yes, Toyotaro's new forms don't count as new forms, because they're still Super Saiyan Blue despite having changes in visuals, power and name, as opposed to the anime's forms, which are not Super Saiyan Blue because they have changes in visuals, power and name. Then you definitely missed the par...

Also, you literally said in the page before this one that the previous chapter’s pacing was fine... So just because this chapter is one you find slow with bad pacing, that doesn’t automatically mean that this arc’s pacing will end up inconsistent no matter what. First of all, friendo, you should kn...

This point is void if these turns out to be his only magical abilities. No, it's not. You're misrepresenting my point. I've repeatedly made it very clear that I'm referring to this month.

In the beginning, all that was established was telekinesis, ki attacks, and his genki absorption. That's exactly what he's been doing throughout the chapter.
