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

He doesn't have any douchey one-liners like he does in the first one. Once he enters his rampage, I don't think he speaks at all but I haven't actually seen the movie yet either. As far as I understand, he at least doesn't talk during his time as a SSJ/LSSJ like he does in Movie 8. Which is lame, t...

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

Some of you guys are really underestimating the galactic patrollers... Merusu is the number 1 elite patrolman who is in charge of 104 districts and it's totally understandable that he can, at least, knock out Goku and Vegeta with a "tranquillizer gun". No we aren't. We were left to believe Frieza w...

Oh wow, I thought the new arc would start of with a bang. Not a whimper. Really? Does Toyotaro really have to start of with something like this. Having the two characters that just fought Broly to get speed blitz and knocked out with a gun. Does the fight need to even happen actually? I'm pretty su...

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

No, but cumber is a complete rip off of broly. Are you sure? I personally don't think they are the same... they are both brutes, but that's about it. So basically what Zero is saying is that out of the entire Saiyan race, Broly should be the only one allowed to have a brute like mentality. Despite ...

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

Well the translations are out of the new chapter 42. I gotta say that I loved that Freeza and #17 planned the entire situation with #17 hiding because nobody can sense his ki. This also makes a bit sense of Grand Priest, who in the anime and manga, announced that #17 was gone. It's also awesome tha...

I have the wonder what the districts consist of that the Galactic Patrol look over, considering that there are only 28 planets of life in the universe.

Re: Piccolo's role in DBS Broly from SDBH 8th Anniversary Super Guide

Well according to Geekdom's last video (MASSIVE POTENTIAL SPOILERS) Piccolo is helping teach the fusion dance to Vegeta to allow Gogeta to happen Well, it was either that or "gathers the dragon balls".I kinda like this better, since is something that no other characters can do, and makes for a fun ...

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

Alright so a couple things: 1. Goku says "It's about time you fight me" implying there's some kind of gap where he doesn't fight Goku? Maybe he's pissed at Vegeta and only wants to fight him first? 2. Chela says "He isn't fighting because he wants to fight" but one of the taglines said that the thr...

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

Bringing him back just to kill him again was a mistake of RoF, but bringing him back at the end of Super clearly had a different intent than to just kill him off again in a different movie. I have the feeling Freeza was revived to be the recurring villain who gains his own strength and allies, trai...

Re: What really happened to GT?

Pokémon is primarily a video game. Not really the same thing. And a card game, and a dozen other pieces of merchandise. Pokémon is literally a different type of anime as it’s a more monster of the week variety similar to tradition American Saturday morning cartoon shows which did not rely on serial...

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

I love the way Toriyama actually makes red and blue GODLIKE. He's actually showing that red and blue is all that is necessary to compete. Showing that god ki ain't useless but stands up to it's name as something special. I'm not really seeing any difference. Broly just seems another character that ...

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

The idea that Freeza might’ve been an adolescent when he wiped out the Saiyans is something I can’t really get behind. Why not? It takes away from his decision, one. He did it on a childish whim, not because he was aware of the dangers the Saiyans posed and was really terrified deep inside in spite...

Re: Freeza is a good character now?

snip And for the record, at no point did I say Vegeta wasn't extremely evil before joining the team. All I pointed out was that compared to him (or Piccolo), there's no attempt to humanize Freeza at any point in the franichise's history (and its too late to even try at this point). Just compare the...

Re: Freeza is a good character now?

There difference between Vegeta and Freeza is that while Vegeta for most of his life intentionally fought off any feelings of empathy, remorse and love because he thought they were beneath him (which is a sign of sociopathy), Freeza on the other hand is flat out innately incapable of feeling these ...

Re: Freeza is a good character now?

He was (and kinda still is) a sociopath, which is a (relatively) watered-down version of psychopathy. It all comes in a spectrum which we all fall in, from pathological altruism (Gohan, Cabba), to mild hysteria (Chichi, Bulma and Goku), to standard sociopathy (most U7 Saiyans) to complete psychopat...

Re: Freeza is a good character now?

Is he a good guy? No. Is Super attempting to groom him into the next anti-hero because he's a popular character? Most likely. sigh. Freeza is still an evil asshole. He's just become much more cunning and far more tolerable of certain situations that he'd previously lose his cool over, if it can ben...
