Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

No, they could have not done anything interesting with him in the last two episodes. Complaining that NOW Jiren has been ruined is just nonsense. He was ruined long before today. I'm not complaining that he's been ruined NOW. I'm claiming that now he's even WORSE. I don't see how this is hard to un...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

This is just ridiculous to the point they think the audience will eat every shit they drop it. And their thoughts are substantiated, as even after all the plot problems people complain about, DBS is as popular is its ever been. The Crunchyroll servers went completely down, I had to find alternative...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

Yeah, because he was really interesting before. :roll: I didn't claim that. He was a bad character then and he's a terrible character now. All I'm saying is that they could have done something interesting with him. Him being a superhero with such a personality could have been the source of an inter...

Re: Super Episode 130 (18 March 2018)

On the other hand, I’m not a big fan of them going through the whole “power of friendship” trope. That’s way too cliche for a shonen series. It's not too cliche for a shounen series when 99% of shounen is all about "teaching" that lesson. That's like complaining that a horror film has a scene that ...

Re: Official "DB 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

The SSJ haircolor changed constantly in the anime. One episode its piss-yellow in another its white-blond. That is true! They could never pick a certain color until Super. In Super they had the same problem with Blue No kidding. I feel like it was slowly going towards green in the color spectrum du...

Re: How Much Does Your Mom/Sister/Grandma/Girlfriend Know About Dragon Ball?

moms and sisters and such are usually the best representation of a general audience. People who aren't swept up in geek culture like us. Therefore, I believe they are the best test of how mainstream or niche something is. Lol, boy what a overgeneralized and unsubstantiated statement if I've ever se...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

The Twilight film series was also a financial success, with over a billion dollars grossed. That doesn't make those movies good, let alone the best. That's besides the point. Within the Dragon Ball movie series, Resurrection F was more successful than any of them. In comparison to just it's other m...

I'm no one to say that opinions are wrong, but this is one where A LOT of people would disagree with you, and a prime example of why people are glad he's not in charge this time around.

Re: Official "DB 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

[spoiler]All the excitement I experienced from seeing the promotional Goku image and the staff list was very quickly drained when I read Toriyama's comment: "(the movie) will give a little better understanding about Freeza and the Saiyans, which I hadn’t properly depicted up till now". Come on, ser...

Re: Official "DB 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

I keep reading people say that the movie will take place after the ToP arc based on the official tweet. But isn't that a lost a translation type of situation? When I read that tweet, I didn't take it as "this is what happens next after the ToP" but more like "this is the next story we're gonna tell ...

If the movie looks like that art promo, there is no fuck-up that Toriyama can do that will detract my enjoyment of it.

To be honest, I don't think Toriyama can write anything interesting anymore, anyway.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

I don’t know if it’s just your guys’ reading comprehension or if I’m not clear enough, but you said there was just “a few” frames of repeated animation, to which someone replied that there was a lot more than a few, and somehow you’ve taken that as us trying to forcefully change your opinion or som...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

The length of reused frames is not an opinion, it’s a fact. As Amir said, it’s a lot more than just a few reused frames. You dont get the point. He is saying that he doesn’t care how much reused animation was there. He still liked the episode. I don't think you get the point. His initial post said ...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

Yeah I don’t understand how anyone can defend this at this point in the series. I can defend it because I don't let a few frames of a cartoon I've seen before deter my enjoyment of what I'm watching.

Re: Jiren -such a huge disappointment

Perfect example of Toei unable to write interesting plot. Toriyama probably just told them "he's strong" and left Toei to develop his character and they had no idea what to do. At least Toyotaro is trying to give him character. It's another reason why I want Toriyama out and someone else to take ove...
