Re: Does Nozawa have an understudy?

I'd hate to say it, but I'm afraid she may not need one. I've not liked bringing this up around fans of works whose voice actors are as iconic as Mrs. Nozawa, but it's a fact that's going to have to be addressed sooner or later. Voice acting as a career has maybe a decade and a half left of life in ...

Re: why do fans of One Piece and Naruto Shippuden critisize Dragon Ball a lot?

I think you have a huge misunderstanding of how art works. It doesn't matter if you are the most of anything. All that matters is the package of everything you do well. Good art is good regardless of whatever else is going on or what comes later. DB's not the funniest, best written, most subversive...

Re: why do fans of One Piece and Naruto Shippuden critisize Dragon Ball a lot?

Quite honestly, it's because Dragon Ball comes off as the "standard" shonen anime and the one everyone points to and says "I like/grew up on anime." All of Dragon Ball's many flaws have been overcome by objectively more complete manga over the years since the first issue, but Dragon Ball persists du...

Re: Create Your Dream Game / Roster

My dream game is impossible. I mean, it is possible but I know Namco and Dimps would never put in the effort to create it because of the costs. Basically, it's a 3D dynamic open world JRPG with an extensive character customization tool, though it functions more like a western RPG. Choose your race a...

Re: A collection of screenshots for every 3D DBZ game. Which one has the best graphics?

In terms of raw graphical appeal, FighterZ. In terms of looking like the anime, FighterZ by some distance. Of the 7th generation, Burst Limit by some distance. Of the 6th generation, Budokai Tenkaichi 3. Honestly, I'd say FighterZ and Burst Limit are the best the series has to offer in terms of grap...

Re: How would you feel if Toriyama killed your favorite character permanently?

I'd be amazed that the story would have the dragon balls in this day and age considering its reputation. Thumbs up for being gutsy and pour one out for my fallen comrade. We already know Dragon Ball is a story where the most expected plotline is the one that will happen (at least nowadays) and death...

Re: Jackie chan and toriyama interview.

Interesting seeing this. I could always tell there was a lot of love for Jackie Chan's style and character in Dragon Ball (gee, I wonder what tipped me off ), but knowing the two actually met tickles some inner fangirl part of me. Yes, his support of the CCP is disconcerting but since I don't want t...

Re: Which would Goku pick : Fighting or Family ?

I can't imagine Goku would choose fighting over family so long as he's still able to help train a new generation of fighters. If the alienness of the Saiyan mindset were kept, then I would have said he'd choose fighting, but these days Saiyans are pretty obviously spiky-haired monkey-tailed humans w...

Re: Was Super Saiyan a mistake?

Considering my frustration with it helped spur me to come up with a DB-ripped-off story, I'd probably say "yes" to make things quick but to be honest, no . There's nothing wrong at all with Super Saiyan. Not even Super Saiyan 2. The problem with Dragon Ball stems much deeper than any single thing, b...

Re: How Powerful Would GT Goku & Vegeta Be With SSJG/SSJB?

Do you mean how strong GT Goku and Vegeta would be if they also went through what went on in Super? Or do you mean that taking into consideration Super is canon and GT is retconned to include it, how strong are Goku and Vegeta in that scenario? Or to put it succinctly, GT without Super vs. GT after ...

Re: Did Goku & Piccolo Ever Qualify For The 'Rival Boost' Properties Behind The Potara?

After the whole ordeal with Super, my belief became that Vegetto was so ungodly strong because he utilized a godly fusion over a purely mortal one. It'd be interesting if there were three sorts of fusions— godly, mortal, and demonic, all with their own stat boosts.

Re: Who is Turles?

My headcanon is that Tullece is a chance doppelganger of Bardock/Goku and that he is actually much older than Goku. If anything, he's probably around Bardock's age if he was working in the Saiyan Army.

Re: What's the SS4 multiplier?

It's however strong it needs to be to make everyone else look weaker than it, until some new form is directly stated to be stronger than it. That's my headcanon for all transformations. Besides, multipliers should be treated as nothing more than how much stronger it puts it over the base, not the ma...

Re: Why Were The Z Senshi So Useless Against Nappa?

You can't compare it to real life in that manner. In DB world, at some point it doesn't matter what the tactics are, some characters are too powerful. Not exactly true, as long as you know what you're doing and the difference isn't so great that you are basically a cricket fighting a mountain. Let'...

Re: Can An Oozaru Use SSJ Forms Above The Ordinary SSJ1?

Just going off non-canon stuff, you get a lot of contradictory information. Because if you include GT but not the games like Heroes, then it's still fuzzy because we never got any real information on what the Golden Oozaru was. It's a transformation of an entirely different transformation, sort of l...

Re: Would the Mafuba work on Super Saiyans?

As of Super, the Mafuba is now the most overpowered technique in all of time. As long as you have a cheap, dollar store rice cooker and the proper seal, you can probably capture Zen'o. I wonder if that's something Freeza would try. It would also potentially make for some good earlier-in-the-timeline...

Re: Why didn't Zamasu hate the Gods of Destruction?

From what I can understand, Zamasu is essentially a racist or god supremacist. When you're a supremacist, you don't automatically presume that all members of your kind are worthy— only those similar in morality to you. Gods are essentially chosen. They have jobs. The Gods of Destruction destroy beca...

Re: Why didn't Goku turn SSJ3 in his fight against Majin Vegeta?

I always felt that it was a combination of wanting a fair fight with Vegeta as well as believing that Vegeta was merely lost and wayward at the moment, and using SSJ3 even for a moment would have severely cut his time on Earth during a moment where he was likely needed. And even if he wasn't needed,...
