Re: Do you like other battle shounen, and how do you feel they stack up to Dragon Ball?

I've watched and read quite a bit of Shonen, although I feel like there's a lot more I need to personally experience and not just research about. And I honestly think Dragon Ball still holds up. Obviously, it's more generic. One Piece has pirates, Naruto has ninjas, Fairy Tail has wizards, My Hero ...

Re: Krillin’s daughter Marron could be a fighter

Thank you all for your comments. I find it unlikely. 18 was never a fighter, just some delinquent who received superpowers from a crazy scientist. The only reason she joined that one fighting tournament was to get the prize money. As for Krillin, he has long retired from fighting. Even her uncle is ...

Krillin’s daughter Marron could be a fighter

In the DBGT timeline, she was pretty much a civilian and didn’t do much. http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/dragonball/images/b/bd/MarronPink.png So do you think she should develop combat abilities in the new DBSuper timeline? The trademark for DBZ females is that once they have a serious family li...

Re: Was Dio Brando an influence on Hit?

It was obviously influenced not by DIO but by Star Platinum: The World :^) If we were to throw away what Goku tells Hit on why he keeps his hand in his pocket I could see it being some Jotaro-esque pose with how Jotaro likes his hands in his pocket. You're right about Star Platinum. And about the p...

Was Dio Brando an influence on Hit?

The clip below is from the show JOJO's BIZARRE ADVENTURE, and features a character, Dio Brando, displaying the ability to stop time, which he learns to extend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9za3TrVT3g I think it's fair to say that Hit’s ability was influenced by Dio Brando. And it's okay, because...

Re: Official Favorite Characters Thread

(Please excuse me, I couldn't keep beyond the 10-character limit) Goku - one of the most unique characters I have ever come across: a lovable goofball (can't call him an idiot, he was raised without proper education) who happens to be one of the most badass fighters in all anime. Krillin - a lovable...

Characters who can manipulate/control time

These seem to be the most powerful characters of all. Of course the ability to manipulate time is a power unlike all others, but when you reach a power level of near-unbelievable proportions, the best way to counteract an attack would be to remake time. Guldo in the Ginyu Force could freeze time. (t...

Has Vegeta's dreams of conquest been revived?

With the appearance of alternate universe Saiyans, would you say his desire to conquer has reawakened? Vegeta has always strived to be the strongest in the universe, but with him being second-best to Goku this has been reduced to just wanting to beat Goku. Now, with the appearance of other Saiyans, ...

Re: Would anyone else like Time Breakers to appear in Super?

It would perhaps be nice to make part of the Xenoverse canon, and the Time Breakers and Time Patrol do sound like a legitimate choice what with all the time-travel ramifications occurring.

I don't know myself if this can/should happen or not.

Characters named after foodstuffs

It's how I got my username. :P And while it's a bit surreal, it's also cool that some of anime's most badass characters - Bardock (named after the burdock herb), Krillin (which means chestnut), Beerus and Whis (beer and whisky) and Chanpa and Vados (champagne and calvados), and of course Vegeta and ...

Does anyone want to see King Kai fight?

He is a trainer, but it doesn't look like he's seen major combat. Then again, he is a Kaio (a god). But I think it'd be nice to see the Kai get into a fight to see how they'd handle such a situation. Even Master Roshi got to kick some butt once in a while, so maybe King Kai could get the same oppurt...

Re: Why hasn't the Kaioshin helped Future Trunks against Black?

Well let me throw this against the wall and see if it sticks. Kaioshin are creators yes...but they aren't supposed to interfere in their work. As mentioned Buu posed a threat against the Gods. Others were threats to conquer or destroy the entire universe which I suppose was an act worth interfering...

Re: How come Funi didn't dub Chala ?

I thought the English dubs for Mystical Adventure and Romantik Ageryo were very nice and well-done.

A good dub would have made "Cha-La Head Cha-La" sound epic.

Re: Do colors matter?

Goku started out wearing a blue suit, but he eventually upgrade...
