Re: Vic Mignogna

This "gotcha!" of yours won't work when the circumstances surrounding the discussion have changed. Nice try, but that wasn't a "gotcha" (more of a passing observation, really) and the circumstances haven't changed at all. You said that you would stop posting in this thread because you didn't care e...

Re: Vic Mignogna

So, are you just going to pretend that he didn't follow that by saying "But people keep throwing potshots at me" or what? I'm not pretending anything, I left that part out because it wasn't relevant. If he feels strongly enough about it to keep coming back because he thinks he's being insulted (not...

I said I wouldn't post anymore And yet you've posted four times since you said that. Personally, I find that very amusing. Maybe you should stop saying this if you can't follow through.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Given some of his coworkers are now coming out in support of the victims, what now exactly is the rationale behind jumping to his defence? None. There's no defense anyone could muster for Vicken McNuggets at this point after people like Monica Rial and Neil Kaplan have spoken extensively about the ...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

They explain that in that scene. Not quite. If you admit that his surprising recovery rate is assumed to be a body adaptation on your part, the scene is unclear at best other than expositing the typical zenkai stuff. My impression of that dialogue exchange is that he's made out to be a cut above ot...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

I think this fairly aligns with Goku. Both are low class warriors but their mindset, their will and determination pushes them further than other low class warriors showing that there's more than a status, it's up to their mindset. My issue with that interpretation is that it somewhat goes against t...

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

I picked 7 chapters that I remember having specific fights in them, and it turns out they all have establishing shots: Most of those aren't establishing shots. You're also misusing the term. An establishing shot is a technique (primarily associated with filmmaking) used at the start of a scene to e...

Re: Vic Mignogna

This argument about whether Neil Kaplan was sexually assaulted is both utterly pointless and also a concerning derailment of the problem. He was assaulted. His personal space was violated. This is consistent with Vic's behavior at cons. This is more evidence to add to the pile, regardless of how you...

Re: Why Battle of Gods will always be THE BEST Dragon Ball Movie EVER!

Battle of Gods stands out for the sheer magnitude of lore expansion, great characterization, mostly tight storytelling and quirky Toriyama-imbued humor it brought to the table in a successful effort to revitalize the series, but it's certainly not flawless. It's also one of those weird cases in ent...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

The comparison between Bardock and King Vegeta comes from the English dub . In the Japanese version it doesn't exist and King Vegeta isn't even mentioned at all. While this is true - and also something I'd admittedly forgotten about myself - it's important to note the original language states Bardo...

I'm aware of that, and I know it's more common than people think -- especially among those in powerful positions with a large following. I was curious about Funimation specifically.

Re: Vic Mignogna

After reading more allegations and testimonies about Haberkorn, I've quickly changed my stance on him.

I wonder how many actors associated with Funimation are doing sleazy shit like this. How deep does it go?

Re: Vic Mignogna

Maybe Mignogna was too cloggy to his fans, without intentions of actually abusing them? Maybe, that is a possibility too. We can't really know the truth with we already have. To be clear, I think that's entirely possible. As someone who comes from the southeastern United States, where people are pe...

I didn't defend his behavior. I said I didn't agree with the ostracization he was receiving. That's what I'm addressing, dude. I'll say it again and make it clearer this time: the idea that Vic deserves nothing more than a slap on the wrist is profoundly ignorant at best and downright unsettling at...

It isn't a kneejerk response to call out unnecessarily hostile behavior, which I consider assumptions of one's personality to be. I have already elaborated on my position above. I didn't make any assumptions about your personality; I'm talking about your position. As far as I know, you're just igno...

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

Would other Saiyans have acted in the same way if their ridiculously powerful son got exiled from the planet for no reason? I'll elaborate on why I think the answer is most likely "no, a lot of them wouldn't": Saiyans are generally subservient to those with any kind of power over them. Most of them...

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

I'm not disputing that Broly's arc is competently done. But beneath the surface, there's the fact that the circumstances that allowed them to "bond" originated from Saiyan society, the same society Paragus is such a good representative of in spite of his cast away status, and the same society the m...

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

He's still a barbaric, brutal, self-serving Saiyan, like all the rest But that doesn't matter. That's not what the movie was contrasting or conveying to the audience. Broly and Paragus are both primitive individuals, and both have traits that we know are innate to Saiyans according to Toriyama. The...

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

Whether it be nature or nurture, it doesn't make your point any stronger when Broly was still under Paragus' influence. You're flip-flopping at this point. First you claim that Toriyama's perspective on the matter is irrelevant because "m-modern stuff doesn't count!", even though it's predicated on...
