Re: The selfishness of the Dragonball fandom

I can understand wanting to see your favs get some love, but what you consider a noteworthy moment differs from person to person. Many of my friends feel the same way I do about Super, but I don't speak for others of course. The thing that does bug me is when some make it sound like Goku is a prima...

Re: The selfishness of the Dragonball fandom

I mean, wanting the creator of the show to change his story into what you want it to be strikes me as more selfish than being happy with what the writer is already doing, but what do I know? I am happy with some of the things the creator of the show did with Super. But I'm also unhappy with a lot o...

The selfishness of the Dragonball fandom

I consider myself to be a reasonably unselfish person when it comes to wanting to see my favourite character shine in Dragonball/z/Super. And what I mean by that, is that I don't mind it if other characters of the show get to have some love now and again. Future Trunks for instance is my favourite c...

Re: How do you feel about the FT arc?

Loved it. Best arc in Super by a mile. It had great fights, some really powerful moments, one of the best DB villains, fantastic soundtrack and an ending scene that was way more emotional than I anticipated. Also, I don't think a Dragon Ball story has ever kept me guessing so much. It was a lot of ...

Re: Why does virtually everyone watch the spoilers for next episodes?

Most people are too weak minded to resist.
I hate spoilers and always try to avoid the title of the next episode because that's actually the biggest spoiler.
They really shouldn't show the outcome of the whole episode with one sentence in the title, it's stupid! :problem:

Re: Why could Goku achieve UI but Vegeta couldn't?

I know this isn't the In-Universe board, but I'd prefer to at least humour the idea of symbolic and factual in-universe reasoning for why Goku attained the Ultra Instinct over Vegeta. Why indeed. They both had the same training by Whi's and Beerus so that's not it, they have roughly the same streng...

Re: It blows my mind how irrelevant Trunks/Goten were for all 131 Super episodes

Out of all the offspring of Goku and Vegeta, there's at least one still worthy of being the '"son of". And that's Future Trunks! It's kinda depressing that Gohan, Goten and Kid Trunks will grow up to be so irrelevant in the future. And I'n not looking forward to see Pan becoming like her GT persona....

Re: Why could Goku achieve UI but Vegeta couldn't?

I really don't consider the "Goku is the protagonist" argument valid. Naruto is even more inarguably the main character of Naruto, because he's also the TITULAR character, and yet Sasuke was dead even with him and their final battle ended with a double KO draw, conceded by Sasuke only because Narut...

Re: Why could Goku achieve UI but Vegeta couldn't?

If you want to deny the actual story of Dragonball why Toriyama stated Goku is better than Vegeta, why Vegeta calls number one and the reasoning behind why Goku continues to stay ahead of Vegeta and remains the best fighter, thats your problem and not an issue with the story or characters. To be co...

Re: Who is the TRUE hero of Dragonball?

You're confusing "catalys" with "hero". I second this notion. Some refer to Gokū as an accidental or unintentional hero, since his goals simply tend to align with saving the day, but a catalyst is even more accidental or unintentional a hero than that; yes, Bulma's discovery of a Dragon Ball and he...

Re: Who is the TRUE hero of Dragonball?

By causation logic, Akira Toriyama is the true hero haha. Well, there are many characters that can be considered the true heros, depending the situation, but i too like to see Bulma and Future Trunks as ultimate heroes for the Z Fighters. Actually Akira Toriyama's greatgreatgreagreatgreatgreatgr......

Re: Why Krillin wasn't wasted in TOP

True, the false expectations that were given by the show gave the fans the impression that they would finally see some of their favourite characters shine for a change. But did that happen? With the exception of 17, Freeza and Roshi, Mostly not! Tien was completely wasted and Krillin was not much b...

Re: Who is the TRUE hero of Dragonball?

If you want to use causation for events as criteria then Freeza is the true hero. Then if you want to continue to use causation it's his parents. Their parents. So forth. You're using an argument of infinite regression. For example if Goku doesn't save Earth/Namek from Freeza there is no Future Tru...

Who is the TRUE hero of Dragonball?

This may be surprising but Bulma is the true hero of Dragonball and also by extension Future Trunks. If it weren't for them, they all would have died in the original timeline Vegeta can still be considered a reluctant anti hero who only fights for his family and himself. Goku is more of an accidenta...

Re: Why could Goku achieve UI but Vegeta couldn't?

Indeed. Even though i’m a HUGE Vegeta fan, i have no problem with Goku getting new forms first and beating the baddies in these specific cases. It’s his show afterall, and he’s the perfect role model for introducing new forms (considering his Base hairstyle) As long as Vegeta eventually catches up ...

Plot. As always. It’s the only reason that explains everything 100% of the time with perfect accuracy. It happens because Toriyama and Toei want it to happen. Vegeta is not getting it this time because it’s Goku’s show and Goku’s turn to achieve it first. Vegeta is up next though when the series re...
