Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

Yeah, but if memory serves, One Piece was moved in the early- mid 2000's precisely to save ratings, because it wasn't doing that well in that time slot anymore. DB's ratings were usually smaller than One Piece's. That was Sunday evenings, not Sat evenings. I find that speculation pretty weird cause...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Well, the DB community might just be rotten at its core. Disgusting. Hope the other cons have some fucking sense and morals left and don't invite him back.

Re: Is Dragon Ball cynical at its core?

It is. Super amplified it with the Tournament of Power being the most blatant example, but it was there for the most part in the original run as well. Tavarano made a great point about it somewhere in this forum and while I feel some of it is exaggerated, I mostly agree with that take. I guess that ...

Re: How on target or off base is this video discussing Racism in Dragon Ball?

Very interesting video. Thanks for posting. I mostly agree. All the black characters in the series are stereotyped to hell which is pretty terrible, but its pretty to understand why that is. It was even mentioned in the video. Western media's growing popularity(most of which were super fucking racis...

Re: Vic Mignogna

It is pretty much the anti-sjw crowd that come out of their bigoted holes whenever anything like this happens. I doubt many people care about this Mingogna situation, they just want to "own the libtards".

Re: Vic Mignogna

It is not insignificant though. It is part of a bigger problem which is sexual assault and power abuse. This VA is one of the many many people who get away with this kind of behaviour and in some cases outright rapists(Polanski for example) and I'd say that is a serious problem.

Re: Is Dragon Ball Your Favorite Anime Ever?

No. Never was. It probably won't rank even in my top 100 or anything if I were to make a list. I get its appeal and even enjoy it somewhat(modern DB can burn though), but there's just way better stuff out there that personally grab me in a way that DB can never do.

The poster of that thread is also me lol. But, eh why do all that math when you clearly have an age group that represents the most fans which is the 30-39 age group. And, hey if you add up the 20-39 age group it is significantly higher than 5-19 going by that logic. Yeah, you can say its a family sh...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

As for Japan, it's a much different culture over there and is marketed for kids. DBS demo is the same in Japan. 20-40 yr. old men mainly.

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

It stands out like a sore thumb. It literally has nothing to do with the rest of Dragon Ball. The dismissal of Roshi's behaviour as lighthearted fun is deeply problematic for obvious reasons. I can only hope that it doesn't occur again in future stories, but who even knows. The Yurin thing as you sa...

I am the last person on Earth to pay attention to dubs and anything related to it, but it came to my attention and I believe this deserves attention. An A-list actor, from what I have heard of him has been getting away with gross behaviour for years. Here's the full article with the victims' stateme...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Broly Box Office Thread

The holiday period was decent, but didn't give it as much of a boost I had thought. Although, I guess it was to be expected with the front loaded nature of the franchise and its narrow appeal.

Expecting a ¥3.8-3.9 billion finish.

Re: Things that grind your gears

They are actually catering to grown ups though. Look at the merch. Most of them are for 15+ age group. Some Heroes stuff are for pre teens, but that's about it. The intended audience is mostly PR stuff from my experience. Every creator/owner will welcome every age group to like their franchise, but ...

So, the company's statement that sponsors TV anime and makes merch and stuff don't matter. The demographic breakdown reports that y'know Fuji TV and other producers buy to gauge what the general audiences are don't matter.

Re: Should I let my 9 year old watch DBZ?

Thanks for proving my point. Just like Pokémon's core fanbase is still kids as it was in the 90s, DB's core fanbase is still teens/adults like it was in the 90s. TV ratings breakdown, movie ticket sales, merch and literally Bandai admit it.
