Re: Vic Mignogna

This whole thing is just... shit. Honestly the whole thing seems shady to me. If this has been happening for years why is this only now being addressed? Part of me thinks this was just some way for news sites to get clicks. They decide to drop these claims on the movies opening week and use "Dragon...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Cooler ...?

When gogeta told freeza about fusion cooler came to mind. I can total see something like that happening.

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

I'm a question: as someone who wasn't familiar with Bardock until a few years ago, why do fans of the old version feel it's so important for Goku to be special (personality-wise) from the rest of the Saiyans? In the original version of events with the original manga/anime and the Bardock special al...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

Originality for one. The end is also not a message we've seen plenty of other places. Even if we were describing Vegeta, the Bardock special came well before Vegeta's change. Vegetas story on Namek had similar beats that the Bardock special had. Both douche bags that go up against Freeza and die wh...

Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

If you think Children are always clothes in public in the real world then you are living with your head in the sand. I hope that works out for you. Not all of us are so privileged to live in first world countries where we can all afford clothing. I was speaking within the context of Japan, a first-...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

No, I said using the word redemption was bad word choice on my part. I already gave reasons why I prefer the New Bardock over the Old. I get that, but your point comes down to him realizing he did bad and wants his final act to be a good one. Fine, though why is that better? Before I answer that wh...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

There's the TV special, Dragon Ball Minus, and now this. I think there should also be a special mention (and by "special" I mean "Ugh, really?") for Episode of Bardock that ties itself to the original Bardock Special. I wouldn't count that as its not a iteration on Bardock's story more of just a co...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

There's the TV special, Dragon Ball Minus, and now this. I don't find it compelling because there is no redemption for those acts. The movie is pretty much minus only expanded a bit. Maybe redemption wasn't the right word. I just ment that all the bad he's done, he now acknowledges it that he was b...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

Given that it was 5 minutes, I can't imagine it was particularly well done. Perhaps it's not character development, but Bardock dying knowing his son whom he thought was worthless would be the one to finally stand up to Freeza is a great moment. I'm assuming you haven't seen the movie by the way yo...

Re: Should we address James Marsters’ sketchy behavior?

Every other week some one brings up sexual misconduct with in dragon ball and now this. Sure let's let's go through every voice actor in dragon ball and dig up past scandals they've been involved in. Heck why stop with the American cast I'm sure the Japanese one isn't so squeaky clean either.

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

Old Bardock and it’s not even close. There’s nothing interesting about the new one, and I think he actually hurts some of the themes presented in the show. I’m sure most of us have heard that argument a million times before, so I won’t get into it. The old Bardock didn’t care for his son because he...

Oh yeah, that's right, we also talk about Dragon Ball in here too, huh? :P I've never seen the original special, but from watching the S-Broly film I found the updated version of the character to have a bit more depth than I suspect the original had As someone who has watched the original special p...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

Thinking about now the new Bardock might not be so different from the old. In the movie he clearly states that saving goku is a form of redemption for him self. I don't remember the exact words but he says somewhere along the lines of that being a form kindness to contrast all bad he's done. Gine sa...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

I prefer the new Bardock. Grew up with old Bardock but never cared about him. I felt that his minor appearance in the new movie was so much more impactful. I actually cared that he died unlike in the original special I thought "aight that was cool" and moved on.
