Re: DBZ Kai Dub and Goku's character

I feel like there's a middle-ground here, and that it's the dub fans who are trying to paint US as trying to paint Goku as 100% complete opposite of what they know. Like, we know that's not the case. I don't see many of us actually pushing that agenda. Don't misinterpret our pointing out contrary e...

Re: Your fondest memories related to DB?

For me, the one I always remember is when the final climactic battle of the Cell Games aired on Toonami. Usually Toonami would show two episodes a day, the "new" one from yesterday in case you missed it and then today's "new" episode. When they got to the final two episodes of SSJ2 Gohan vs Cell, I ...

Re: If Hit is stronger than Vados, why didn't he steal the c

One thing that I haven't really seen addressed or answered directly is an in-universe explanation for SSJ2 Rageta achieving levels well beyond SSJ3 without transforming into it himself or without bulking up SSJ1 grade style (not that we've particularly explored the limits of SSJ2). Coming at it from...

Re: Is It Good Storytelling that Trunks Killing Freeza...

Cell arriving caused the Time Split. He was here before Trunks even arrived. Yeah, but Cell only arrived prior to Trunks' arrival because Trunks was returning to tell Goku and co. of his success. In the timeline Cell came from, Trunks had already gone back in time before. Oh boy, strap yourselves i...

Re: Why were so many names mispronounced in the Funi dub?

Like, seriously...the original Japanese version explicitly pronounces it "Kio ken." Why was it called Kayo Ken? And why were Saiya-Jins called "Seyans"? Also, why change Kuririn, Tenshinhan, and so many other names? Can't speak for all of them. Krillin is a transliteration of Kuririn. If you say Ku...

Re: Why hasn't Super had any cultural impact at all?

I'd argue there's no stain at all anywhere within GT (especially with how it's constantly still trotted out for merchandise and games), and Super had mostly redeemed itself if the current hype over the recent arc / upcoming arc and how that translates into actual merchandise sales means anything (a...

Re: Regarding Future Trunks' age

Time doesn't work in a linear fashion between the two timelines. Between Trunks' first and second trips to the past, three years transpired within the main story timeline, but only 8 months transpired within his (the amount of time it took to recharge his time machine), so just because it was "arou...

Re: the anime strongest buu thing...

As for the alternate interpretations, I answered them. You basically claimed that Gohan didn't count as a Saiyan since Vegeta when Goku is the strongest Saiyan. If you responded to that point then I missed it. Also, Daizenshuu pointing out that Buu was the strongest in the universe when he was defe...

Re: SSJ Blue Goku around 10% Beerus?

Doesn't mean he utilized 10% of his power just to beat Vegeta specifically. He might have used it for the sake of it. To add onto this, Freeza's power-up to 50% was intended to be more than enough to handle whatever heights Goku could reach and he even wound up scaling back some of that power. It's...

Re: Anyone interested in discussing the social issues of DB?

Dude, I like Pan in GT as well. Even though it's kind of BS she doesn't get Super Saiyan (at least within the series) and Toei hands her that one really stupid "Girls get stronger when they cry" moment. Which, ugh. Goku's first big transformation on Namek was sort of the result of a large burst of ...
