Re: Then Vs Now - Dragon Ball GT Vs Dragon Ball Super

Re: Episode #0445 (03 June 2018)

My understanding from other threads here (I'll look for the reference) is that Toriyama provided some sort of plot outline to Toyotaro and Toei. These outlines were less than a script, more a list of things that Toriyama said happened, although I do not believe the fan community has ever seen one o...

Re: Let's talk about Piccolo

I think it'd be awesome if Piccolo gets a power-up in this film. He's always been my favorite character and I like the idea of him still being able to keep up with the Saiyans. I'm not sure it'll happen-- he might serve in a more advisory role regarding the Book of Namekians-- but hey, we can hope! ...

Re: Episode #0445 (03 June 2018)

Very nice analysis from you guys. I liked how even-handed everyone was about the issue! Anyway... we've known for a little while now that Toyotaro has traced or at least heavily referenced the original Dragon Ball manga itself for Super. I sort of assumed that if Toriyama's aware of it, he hasn't mi...

Re: Webcomic - Dragonball Z Elsewhere

This was posted at the Elsewhere Page on Facebook. Long time, no update. I've gotten a lot of messages the past few weeks asking about Chapter 29 and updates. Some have been kind; others have been angry and demanding. Either way, I thought I'd try to clear some things up. The truth is, the past 2 m...

Re: Webcomic - Dragonball Z Elsewhere

Well, according to the author, he wants to aim for "4 volumes" and this is technically the third. I wonder how he'll tie everything up in that amount of time... since I believe he mentioned he also wanted to do a couple of things with Vegeta and Bulma. If he decides to extend it another volume or t...

Re: Dragon Ball AF - Original Author Interview (David Montiel)

It's awesome you've taken the time to interview him. In his own way, David's created a legacy in DBZ fandom which I doubt he'd anticipated (haha, and Kanzenshuu helped in it own funny way)! The interview's a pretty great read, and I completely understand David's feelings that Toyotaro and YoungJiji ...

Re: Clip of the Tournament of Power in 48 Earth minutes

A friend of mine showed me this yesterday. Very impressive! It is a bit hard to keep up with everything going on, but it does a great job of conveying just how fast and intense the fight actually felt for the characters. I like the comments on the video so far contemplating things like how long Goku...

Re: DB Fan Comic Recommendations

I've got a few recommendations for the side stories section: in addition to Little Saiyalings, its author, CDC, did two Dragon Ball Z fan comic specials. One was called "Dragonball CDC #1: At the Beach," and it's got the same kind of humor from the Saiyalings strip, only the characters are portraye...

Re: The Manga is always way better than the anime

I have to disagree when it comes to Super. I liked the fight between Frost and Piccolo more than the anime for example, and Trunks' "Spirit Bomb of Hope" in the anime gave me such a thrill. Honestly, I don't think either medium tells Super consistently better than the other. I thought the manga did ...

Re: Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!! - 10 years!

A few things, firstly Tarble has no story purpose at all, the same with Tights in fact the latter's appearance in modern DB Not so, Tarble served a very specific plot purpose in the special, which was to indirectly bring Abo and Kado to Earth. As a character, his kind nature is a good way of showin...

Re: By Dragonball logic, Is Freeza actually pure evil beyond repair?

Honestly, I think one of Freeza's most defining traits is that he IS irredeemable-- keep in mind many of Goku's major foes have had a change of heart and switched sides, so Freeza is actually sort of an anomaly. We have seen Freeza capable of good things, but only if it suits (a) his continued survi...

Re: Webcomic - Dragonball Z Elsewhere

That`s not to say this Manga isn`t a bigger love letter to the character because it pushes his character and power further in a main character level but the numbers the Yamcha Manga did with just three chapters aren`t anything to sneeze at so I say Lee was sucesseful in what he wanted to accomplish...

Re: How DBS makes old techniques new again

Most anime fans I talk to have a disdain for it or lack interest in it. It's brought its reputation up with the last few arcs, but overall it's not taken seriously like DBZ was. Even people I know who don't watch the show are aware of it's glaring faults. The "casuls" I know don't watch it all the ...

Re: By Dragonball logic, Is Freeza actually pure evil beyond repair?

Hang on, let's entertain the idea, at least-- not so much whether or not Freeza has a philosophy, because I don't think he really does. But how can we describe him without value judgments? He is a [non-sexual] sadist, most definitely. That's a real-world personality type and perhaps not even entirel...

Re: How DBS makes old techniques new again

You are so right!! This arc showed that new techniques or old can be used in cool ways. This part of Super though will just be overlooked due to Super's reputation as a bad show and can't have original ideas. But, maybe one day it'll be talked about more and discussed when people talk about this ar...

Re: Webcomic - Dragonball Z Elsewhere

I freaking loved this comic a year or so ago. They made Yamcha such a relatable and three dimensional character, it's a lot deeper and more complex than Toriyama would probably ever go, yet the tone and content are so consistent with Dragon Ball, it's rather remarkable tbh. Last time I read, it was...
