Re: Why does it seem that Gogeta has wayy more fans than Vegito?

Gogeta SSJ completely stomped Janemba in badass way Gogeta SSJ4 was fun and was...SSJ4 which most fans love Vegito had entertaining fight against Super Buu and disappointing appearance and nerf in Super. Also, since Vegito was permament until Super, fusing into Gogeta was way more likely to happen ...

Re: Fan Perceptions of Son Goku's characterization: Then vs Now

That’s not how IQ works........ Einstein had a 160 IQ out of a perfect 162. Yet he couldn’t talk until 4, couldn’t figure out how to tie his shoes until he was a preteen, and was a notoriously bad speller with most people thinking he was “slow” whatever than means “eye roll”. And he still made many...

Re: Changing SSJ God and SSJ Blue

God ki should look different for every user, I.e. Goku gets Red, Vegeta gets blue. That way we would have an investment in seeing what would happen when other characters got God ki.

Re: Fan Perceptions of Son Goku's characterization: Then vs Now

As far as adult Goku your examples are simply bad decisions, not actual intelligence. Bad decision making on a repeated basis is a sign of low IQ. By the way, none of you guys actually refuted my main point, that Goku (outside of fighting) has consistently been portrayed as kind of slow since the s...

Re: Vegeta SSJ 4

Do You think that Vegeta in GT was acting out of character when he had bulma make the blutz wave generator to help him go SSJ 4? I don´t think so. After Vegeta´s dad moment before he self destructed against buu, he became more of a family man. Like when he got up on stage and made a fool of himself...

Re: Fan Perceptions of Son Goku's characterization: Then vs Now

The problem, in my opinion. Isn't the fandom. Its that Goku has literally been around for decades and people don't know how to properly categorize him as a character. They tend to make him too simplistic and talk in terms of absolutes. Goku is .... so ..... etc. The fact is when we see Goku, he is ...

Re: Has the existence of Ultra Instinct removed any tension from any future antagonists?

Who cares about tension? Ultra Instinct is cool and strong, and quite frankly, that’s the only thing that matters to me. Dragon Ball has never been about tension, it has always been about the evolution of Goku and Vegeta as Saiyans. And this is exactly where Ultra Instinct comes in. This series is ...

Re: Has the existence of Ultra Instinct removed any tension from any future antagonists?

All tension was gone with the introduction of Beerus and Whis as allies, there are no stakes when these characters are still part of Gokuu's friends as Whis can revive people or turn back time and Beerus is one of the strongest fighters This is demonstrably untrue based on not only what we've been ...

Re: "GT = Goku Time" is an exaggeration.

In Super, Vegeta is the same arrogant prick he was before Babidi possessed him; the "You are no. 1, Kakarrot!" speech has been rendered totally meaningless, as has every other step of his development since Goku and co. went into Babidi's ship. It's like GT Vegeta took everything in the Boo arc to h...

Re: "GT = Goku Time" is an exaggeration.

Even if Goku is the only relevant fighter (whatever that means)... DB isn't an ensemble story. DB is Goku's story. It means he's the only fighter who does anything meaningful. Goku's story involves the people around him as well, he's not a character in a bubble. I don't know how you can watch DB an...

Absolutely was Goku Time and that was a good thing There's absolutely nothing good about having a show about fighting in which there is only one relevant fighter. Especially when the previous series had his son and his rival surpass him and keep up with him multiple times only for both of them to b...

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

It's still not the same as bringing Freeza back is the point I was making. This character in-universe is new. Freeza wasn't. That’s really splitting hairs. At most you could call it a remake or reboot. The more important part being is that we’re rehashing something we’ve seen before and the most we...

There is no disassociation between Toriyama and Dragonball. Do not forget that Dragon Ball original manga is amazing not for Toriyama... it was for its editor: Yū Kondō. Of course Toriyama was pretty good with the development of the history, drawing,... but the real genious here was Yū Kondō. I'm s...

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

They're not bringing Broly back though. This a new character. That's not entirely true, Toriyama outright said they are keeping his classic image from the old movies while adding new things to him. If he was a totally new character, Paragus would not be his father and he wouldn't have a mind contro...
