Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Why can't this dub stop adding in insults that don't belong?

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

I may be the only one that just realized this but It seems after reading Viz and mangastream Goku did indeed use Kaioken Blue. It's stated by Krillin in both translations that Goku indeed was using Kaioken. Even the aura is Kaioken like. Did Herms ever chime in on these particular events through tr...

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

JazzMazz said "without being complacent", though; that means he can still have surpassing Goku as his goal, he just doesn't have to be filled with resentment and insecurity. Resentment? Really? Android Arc Vegeta would've flown off and worked himself to death if Goku was at a higher level. Buu Arc ...

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

In no way an insult? Poor teacher? Look back to the Cell and Boo arcs for a reminder of where Vegeta gets when left to his own devices; even having to resort to cheating to get on par. Before getting mad at your teacher for your own lack of proficiency, think about where you'd be without them. Whis...

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.

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...

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...
