Re: Which series has better powerscaling, GT or Super?

Hardly what I would call a rant, but okay. Your issue is super specific and you clearly seek this out. You feel this compulsion to not even give an opinion, but simply state a fact every time some one mentions something remotely negative about Freeza. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME! And this has gone on for y...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I'm not sure what the problem is with Ressurection F. Why wouldn't Freeza be brought back and killed off? What's he gonna do, survive? That would've been preferable to doing what they did decades prior. Better yet, they could've not gone back to that well. Then frieza came back in tournament of pow...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

It's bad enough that Freeza is brought back, given a new form that's just a recolor, only to be killed off. Not only is he killed off again, but he's defeated for the exact same reason he lost the last time. His full power is little more than a form that drains his power which he doesn't realize be...

Re: Which series has better powerscaling, GT or Super?

It's eyeroll worthy but the gaping leap in logic might've been worth it if we got an interesting fight out of it. That's ultimately a bigger issue there. The fundamental issue is trotting out Freeza for the 3rd time. Pretty sure toriyama doesn’t care about the implications on frieza Beijing back he...

Re: Which series has better powerscaling, GT or Super?

Super is one big mess when it comes to powerscaling. Nothing makes sense there. When DBS starts we see someone like Beerus being on a level that seems to be unreachable by normal methods so Goku gains godly powers. Then in next arc Frieza comes back, trains for 4 months and already beats a form tha...

Sorbet really overestimated Freeza. I wish Sorbet had shot Freeza instead of Gokuu instead. Just think of how fitting it would be for Sorbet to kill Freeza after all that?
Then frieza came back in tournament of power and broly seems to have better management

Re: How would you compare Dragon Ball’s revival to something like Star Wars?

Did you have a point? I'm not a comic reader. I'm just saying that the revival era of Dragon Ball and Star Wars is no different to the endless serialisation of major superhero comic franchises, many of which predate them both. Doctor Who and Star Trek fall into this category as well. At a certain p...

Re: How would you compare Dragon Ball’s revival to something like Star Wars?

Star Wars really hasn't had a "revival" so to speak. It's always had new material whether it be TV shows, comic books or video games. Nonetheless, for the sake of comparison, with Disney acquiring Lucasfilm and it's safe to say that all the new content released from when that acquisition occurred (...

I'm not insulting it, but pointing out many place way too much importance on it when by its nature, the lore is merely there to be a small facet and in service of the story, not the other way around. Well some people love expositions First, it's just exposition - singular. And second, some people d...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Those videos aren't reflective of the culture at large. Star Wars draws viewers because we love Han, Luke, Chewie, Leia, Vader, Lando, R2-D2, etc. Lore is exposition. It's enjoyable in small doses but it's not what actually draws people in, not even hardcore nerds. The same applies to DB. We watch ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

They enjoy story. It's not the exposition that they love. There's nothing shallow about that thinking, in fact it's quite the opposite. Then you never seen lore videos dude I don't know what this means. There are a lot of lore videos like people playing videos and even Star Wars lore on the interne...

Re: How would you compare Dragon Ball’s revival to something like Star Wars?

And I just watched Rise of Skywalker and it's worse than anything Dragon Ball has put out over the last 20 years. So swings and roundabouts I guess. Although to be fair, between TFA, TLJ, The Mandalorian and that new game that's apparently quite good, modern Star Wars probably has a balance of hits...
