Re: Are present Trunks and future Trunks technically brothers rather than the same person?

And there is nothing to imply that they are. But they are canonically physically different (different hair color and they age differently) and the timeline was altered before they were conceived. Even if they are genetically very similar, what we see on screen seems to indicate that they are not ge...

Are present Trunks and future Trunks technically brothers rather than the same person?

I mean, think about it. They canonically have different colored hair thanks to the retcon, they age at different rates (with present Trunks, much like Goten, aging at the slower saiyan rate rather than the faster human rate), and the circumstances leading up to their conceptions were different, what...

Re: Why do they suddenly refer to them still as "androids"?

Lord Frieza wrote:#17 and #18 are the real stand outs. Since there upgrades are apparently organic in nature
Since when were their upgrades stated to be biological in nature? Is that some new retcon introduced by Super?

Re: Is Goku to be blamed if anybody dies in the Tournament?

A better question is "Why isn't Goku singlemindedly determined to become strong enough to take down Zeno?" First he should focus on berrus, zeno is a question for an eternity later. Since when in DBZ has Goku ever settled for less than the strongest opponent available? He stopped caring about Veget...

Re: Is Goku to be blamed if anybody dies in the Tournament?

A better question is "Why isn't Goku singlemindedly determined to become strong enough to take down Zeno?" Yeah, Zeno seems all powerful and unbeatable, but so did Freeza when he was first introduced. Yet Goku was determined to beat Freeza because of his strength and was even more determined to defe...

Re: Lunch and the female Super Saiyan

They should reveal that Launch actually has a saiyan ancestor way back in her family tree, and that her transformation is actually a lingering remnant of her ancestor's saiyan DNA.

Re: Why does 18 have two voice actresses?

Meredith McCoy wasn't available when Kai was being recorded, but she's back now and she's here to stay. That's kind of inconsistent. It's not as inconsistent as you think. For all of Z and GT, Meredith voiced 18. It's just for Kai that she got a recast because she was unavailable. But if you want c...

Re: Goku's inconsistent characterization in regards to killing

Goku's attitude toward killing in the original manga was pretty straightforward. Step 1: Goku starts out oblivious to the gravity of killing (and thus kills enemies indiscriminately). Step 2: Goku learns over time that killing is bad (and thus goes to great lengths to avoid killing altogether), Step...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters" FUNimation English Dub Official Announcement and Discussion Thread

Just saw the first ep of dubbed Buu saga Kai, and I loved it. It's been so long since I actually watched the Buu saga, not since before Kai 1.0 came out. I just love how subdued the tone and humor is compared to the over-the-top wackiness of modern DB. I prefer it so much more. And for the life of m...

except goku was nerfed as all hell throughout all of GT from being tutned into a kid and ghan and vegeta weren't around. What exactly does that have to do with what I said? the threat level of the villains were artificial in GT, Gero was also a superior scientist to Myuu. had goku been at his peak ...

Re: For a show that's about to build on the other universes, we really don't know much about U7

GT already dealt with how powerful threats could exist out in the universe: technology. If a scientist on earth can build androids stronger than Freeza (or as strong as Super Saiyan Blue, if we count Arale), there's no reason alien scientists couldn't come up with even better technology, which is w...

This is why I loved GT so much more as a concept than Super. A universe-building space exploration quest that leads directly into an arc involving an alien parasite who turns our heroes' own strength against themselves, which in turn leads to the dragon balls being used again but oh snap now they've...

Re: How many people are sick of Beerus?

What really annoys me about Beerus is how everyone is always bowing and scraping to him all the time. I get that they want to show off that he's a big deal, but it comes at the expense of other characters (namely Freeza and Vegeta). It also annoys me that a character can be so stuck up and arrogant ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z Kai: The Final Chapters" FUNimation English Dub Official Announcement and Discussion Thread

Personally, I don't think there would be many complaints about Super's animation if it had started with the Universe 6 tournament but was otherwise identical to how it is now. It was really the first two arcs that had consistently unacceptable levels of shitty animation, which is just another reason...

It's called the "We made Trunks's hair blue in base without thinking ahead and now we want him to become Super Saiyan Blue but he already has blue hair so it wouldn't look right so instead we'll just make up this new form that's essentially Super Saiyan Blue except not blue" form.
