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

Whether it's Gogeta or Vegetto, there's gotta be a fusion since the unknown character has both Goku and Vegeta's attacks. But the thing is that in the list of attacks, there's also something called "Vanisher Guard" for defense. So it would be a form that has a defense that makes you seem like you v...

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

One can argue that the only "developed" (character-wise) canonical Frieza lackey henchman we have ever seen was Appule. What would that argument look like? I'll put this argument in a logical manner. All other Frieza Soldiers = no character, just common/expendable lackies with no lines. {value=null...

Re: What would you rate DBS out of 10?

Something I miss from Nozawa's Goku voice is how quiet and calm she would speak sometimes, like when she first met Future Trunks or first turned SSJ3. When she was talking to Freeza during the ToP arc is the closest I've heard to that tone in Super, and I loved it for that. Fixed. Nozawa is a girl ...

Re: Fan Perceptions of Son Goku's characterization: Then vs Now

Uh, yeah? A driving test is something that requires you to sit down, learn a bunch of rules and regulations and followed by driving courses to practically apply that knowledge. There's educated people who've sat down and studied who take a long time to pass one here, Goku's a hick who's never farte...

Re: Is Toei’s Kale supposed to have a crush on Caulifla?

They only overshadow the rest of her character if you stay fixated on it. The references were unbearable on every level but I could move past them because they were a small, if loud, aspect of her character. They can pretty much be completely ignored and you wouldn't lose anything of her character(a...

Re: Is Toei’s Kale supposed to have a crush on Caulifla?

I don't understand how you can't see it. Kale will forever remain in the shadow of Broly. When casuals have her name mentioned to them, they'll immediately think of her being the, "!FemBroly." Even her design, both in clothing and transformation, is akin to the former Broly. Well, casuals are quite...

Put-upon cynicism of the silliest shit in the world. Stop. Consume and create what you like. Don't crusade any further trying to make a point you're not going to be able to convince anyone of. While online cynicism is pervasive these days, I myself can attest to subscribing to it, Kale is... Hard t...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Again you’re attempting to mind read, you’re inferring that he was annoyed to begin with and then trying to direct it at a specific user. Fine. I guess it's just a coincidence he keeps arguing against the idea of editors and taking credit away from Toriyama in making Dragon Ball what it is, while B...

Re: Has the existence of Ultra Instinct removed any tension from any future antagonists?

What bugs me more about it is that it essentially removes any notion of skill or strategy in fighting. Goku just sets his body on autopilot and doesn't even do any conscious fighting. That's extremely boring, and IC Goku should hate it. It's unconscious action, but it's still his action. UI is a st...

I can again speak directly because he quoted my post and there was a back and forth exchange, your inferring your point based on mind reading.

There is no disassociation between Toriyama and Dragonball. Do not forget that Dragon Ball original manga is amazing not for Toriyama... it was for its editor: Yū Kondō. Of course Toriyama was pretty good with the development of the history, drawing,... but the real genious here was Yū Kondō. I'm s...

Regardless of whether they are or not, the thing to take away is what you saw from Kale are the same things you'd frequently see if you watched/read actual yuri.

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

But that's exactly what you're doing. Unlike you admitting the point that yourself, as a backseat writer, just described was the same, I acknowledged that there was a flurry of punches. The composition of the scene shows Jiren quickly adjusting his strength to (casually) take Roshi out. First of al...

The general progression and flow is still as you've described it, except you're nitpicking over the exact paneling in an attempt to pry apart the point. Don't do that. More like you're ignoring the exact composition of the scene to cling to your point. Do that if you want. It's like saying kid Goku...

Re: Can someone explain to me why Roshi vs Jiren is bad?

If there is an explaination, that's not a bad one ... Jiren suppresses to Roshi's level, but he is surpised Roshi's speed / reaction and strength aren't evenly matched. That's why he initially can't hit him, once Jiren adapts to that, it's end of the ride for Roshi. The chapter even reinforces this...
