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

The target demo isn't kids. Kids as in toddlers and pre-teens. Not saying they don't matter or young children who like DB don't exist, they do. But, just like in the old days the demo skews teens(12+) and adults(mostly 20-34). It is the case with most shounen titles in fact, but especially old title...

Nagamine dreaming of 10billion lol. No way that's happening unless of course he means overseas sales combined. But, even with that I doubt.

Nope. Shingeki is shounen. It is published in a shounen magazine.

Re: Is Dragon Ball still your favorite shonen?

The "shounen is primarily for boys" is highly inaccurate. It is just a marketing statement. There is no single target audience for shounen cause the target audience is pretty diverse. It is a common misconception among the anime/manga fandom. This survey by Nikkei 4-5 years ago showed that half of J...

Re: Is Dragon Ball still your favorite shonen?

It never was. I'm not much of a shounen geek though. My anime preferences lie elsewhere. But, out of the 20 or so shounen battle anime I have seen, Dragon Ball is outclassed by most of them.

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

Lol. More PR bullshit from Hayashida. The "DBS episode 5 had newbie animators" dude. All major films have the luxury of providing a rough cut and having time to do corrections before the final version. The HeroAca movie is the most recent example. This guy knows nothing about the industry.

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

Thank god I gave up on this corporate hack of a franchise or else I would be mad as hell. They got good staff this time which is kind of attracting me, but nope not going to give these corporate bastards my money.

My two cents. :)

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

Hmm. I have been thinking about this myself a lot lately. I certainly have a changed opinion on this topic from before. I kind of, sort of found Toriyama's delivery of the Roshi gag funny before, but I think its cheap and tasteless humor ultimately. I'm fed up of sexual humor in anime/media in gener...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

Was his contributions any good on those two episodes? Standard work and just like most he wasn't able to show his full capabilities. #8 was kind of dreadful. Dragged a 30 sec joke to almost an entire half. The episode director is also to be blamed though. Poorly paced and had some iffy layouts iirc...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: TV Ratings Discussion Thread

I wish that was the case cause my god are the producers blatantly milking it in the shittiest way possible, but that is not happening. Dragon Ball will be back on TV within a year or two.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

Mitsuka got owned. Super does it yet again. I hope he gets to work on something next where he doesn't have to compromise this much. Kitaro might be a nice place or best case return to Precure where he belongs.

Re: Does Dragon Ball even feel like a story anymore?

It is more nostalgia driven then ever. It is ridiculous how much fanservice they have thrown in DBS. Although to be fair, it all started from F. I dunno if its Toriyama or the production committee members or both, but yeah I can totally see and even agree to an extent why you might think the show ha...

Re: Why do YOU personally watch Super?

Seiyuus and the animation staff. But, I dropped it in mid-ToP cause I couldn't take it anymore. Enough is enough. But, still that was my reason for sticking with the shitshow that is DBS for what 90 something episodes. I respect the staff.

Re: What do you guys think of Zamasu?

Good concept, lackluster execution. Zamasu and Trunks arc in a nutshell. I didn't find any of his change in motivation like his corruption earned. To be fair to the character, he was hella entertaining especially Black and all of his dialogues. But, everything happened too fast and the rushed pacing...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

King Ryuu was announced as series composer(head writer) during the Universe 6 arc but then got removed for unknown reasons after the end of that arc. He is not a director. He is at the moment busy with new Marvel anime or whatever.

Yeah, she is credited under 演出助手(assistant enshutsu) and her kanji would be 石谷恵. You can check staff database. They have all credits up to date.

Actually she is credited for assistant direction. It is ridiculous how she has been handling the job for the last 18 episodes nonstop. Maybe, DBS wants to kill her. But, yeah I hope she gets to board and direct.

Re: For those who dislike Super, would've been better with Kikuchi or Yamamoto score?

A little as in I would have watched every episode for music alone. But, I would still call it a bad series.

Oh, and I'm referring to the Kikuchi score not the dreadful Yamamoto score. That'd be ideal. But, I would take even Yamamoto over the video gamey and simply unfitting Sumitomo crap.
