Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

Chapelle's special was the funniest, smartest thing I've seen in a while. In no way did he "punch down". In no way did he go "out of his way" to marginalize a group. When his jokes were about black people from his own personal experience, notice how the LBGTQ community wasn't up in arms? why would ...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

Is "punching down" the new buzzword? Did Dave Chapelle also "punch down"? I wasn't attacking tany specific LBGTQ....IA(?) folks in this thread, at all. I was pointing out how the notion to even being to censor previous works is absolutely ridiculous and spearheaded by what seems to be a politically...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

the cover is pretty boring but those kind of designs for game boxarts are becoming more and more common, so i'm not shocked it went in that direction. still though, they really could have spiced up the background at least a little, lmao.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

As much as it blows that Gohan lost the protagonist role, the genki-dama in Buu's arc was a surprisingly cool and heartwarming way to end the fight. We get to see Vegeta put more effort into redeeming himself, a big pay-off to Mr. Satan billing himself as "humanity's champion" and we see a lot of t...

Re: Petition to use SS, not SSJ, as an abbreviation for Super Saiyan

It's definitely subjective because I've always thought SSJ was kind of weird and pretentious. Like there's no point in using the J if the person who uses it doesn't even use the term 'Saiyajin.' Also, I don't know of any other context besides the Nazi one (which I only found out about through users...

Re: DBGT: General Designs/Visuals & Music Opinions

most last house episodes really aren't that bad till the cell arc, i think after the piccolo vs #17 episodes is where last house episodes start getting noticeably worst and then after the trunks vs cell fight is where it gets distractingly bad. yeah it was never really complex and rarely fluid, but ...

Re: What parts of the franchise evoke nostalgia for you?

the first opening animation for the original dragon ball always gets me, the opening shot always makes me feel comfy, as does makafushigi adventure as a whole but more so the animation. actually now that i think about, all the openings and endings for the original anime series's, i love them all, an...

Re: Petition to use SS, not SSJ, as an abbreviation for Super Saiyan

i know this is the logic for a lot of people who prefer funimation's name's, but SSJ really does look better. maybe it's just because i'm so used too it but i think it's partially because SS gets used in different contexts, where SSJ doesn't, at least as far as i know.

Re: Is the manga a little /too/ fast-paced?

yeah i can totally see that. there are certain parts in the manga, mainly relating to to characters/world developments that just feel glossed over in the manga. which i get it, toriyama isn't that type of writer, and the surface level appeal of dragon ball is the fighting, but still, it can make it ...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

i actually really like blue, even if really effeminate villains is kinda overplayed. he's super entertaining and probably more than anything i love his section of the story, those pirate caves are so fun. furukawa's performance in the anime is also so good, lol, despite the issues toei added with him.

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

"I can't believe people are still saying" Quote me directly if you wish to discuss something. What I am saying is that Toriyama certainly didn't intend him to be a black person regardless of whatever the origins you are thinking. He's not even human, period. Is he still racist? Yes absolutely, beca...

I'm traveling the US south right now and forcing myself to use the men's room because I'm afraid of this.

Ok. I didn't think it was appropriate to pry into your personal life in a public discussion so I'll just end it here. Don't live in fear. Go out and be you. I'm not sure where you live but you should not be concerned with going to a public restroom unless you are frequenting shady places or somethi...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

i think for a game that's trying to tell most of Z's story in detail, than yeah they should probably go with something closer to the original score of the show, along with a few new tracks. obviously for fighting games or games like xenoverse, a new soundtrack makes more sense.

Most of those designs are ok except for Vegeta for obvious reasons, Krillin looks twice his age and Bra in a weird hooker outfit. kuririn has always looked way too hard in all the EoZ, GT era stuff. i really don't get it, he looks so much older than bulma, chichi, and yamucha (more so talking about...

Re: Future DB(Z) releases should be edited for it's painfully outdated LBTG+ content

Bolded/underlining mine for emphasis. That's something I hadn't really thought of either. I'm fine with editing/censoring things for airing on TV if it's on a kid's channel, or even a censored home release like the old VHS tapes of DB/Z/GT had, in-so-far as there's also an equally uncut version als...
