Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0

I still enjoyed the episode but I'm not going to forget about its faults. How is reusing animation a "fault" exactly? It's not like Toei is trying to hide the fact that they've been reusing animation; they're pretty obvious at pointing it out. Is it a short-cut to pump out episodes on time? Yep. Is...

Re: Super Episode 129 (4 March 2018)

Goku seemed kinda “emotionless” in a few of his transformations. It’s the intimidation factor. When SSJ and SSJ3 First appeared, Goku had his serious face on. Depending on where the series goes after this arc, we might have to wait before we see a more comical/normal view of his transformation. Kin...

Re: I made a compilation of all DBS Toriyama's character designs, what do you think of his artstyle?

I love it. It reminds me of old school DragonBall, which is my favorite series in the franchise. It probably wouldn't look good in animation, unless the correct studio handled it. I would enjoy a manga adaption with this style though. This looks absolutely nothing like oldschool Dragonball. I didn'...

Re: Super Episode 129 (4 March 2018)

Man, people here give this show so much shit. I thought it was a pretty great episode, and afterwards I came here to discuss it and all I read is complaints about the animation. When I watched it I didn't even notice anything reused except for that bit from the OP of the exchanging of punches. Yet a...

Re: The amount of recolor forms is getting ridiculous

The ironic thing about all the different color transformations is that it's what used to give people boners after DBZ, at the beginning of the internet when everyone was trying to find info about AF series and other doujinshi.

DB in style of CGI?

So this is a fun thought that occurred to me lately due to 1) seeing more and more anime being produced in this style (especially in Netflix) and 2) Super's style leaving more to be desired. How would you feel if the next DB series were to be done completely in CGI? It's been implemented before, in ...

DB for owning digitally?

Is there a way to own any of the DragonBall series digitally? Not to stream watch on Crunchyroll or Funimation, but actually own and download via a service like iTunes? Is the only option of owning a DB series by buying physical discs?

Transformations are just a part of Dragonball, complaining about them is like complaining about new techniques or a new big bad villain.

Like 18million. Inaccurate numbers, otherwise DBS would be the best animated show in history.

Re: Your thoughts on the Tournament of Power compared to the Dragon World's other arcs

As someone mentioned before, it feels too much like American cartoons. Too episodic, with a "villain of the week" vibe to it, where most of the conflicts were resolved within 1-2 episodes to really feel any weight or seriousness to them, especially when you knew the end game was Goku vs Jiren no mat...

Re: Your favorite soundtracks/themes from Super?

Unfortunately, I don't think Super contains a very good soundtrack, but that's just because my expectations are too high after DBZ. The only one I've liked is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecrjOGkDv6c Because it was different than anything heard so far. While the rest of DBS music does not remind...

Re: If there is a new series, what title would you suggest?

Dragon Ball Ultra actually makes sense if they pick up where Super will end, not only because of Goku's Ultra Instinct but because Ultra sounds something a Japanese animation studio would pick to name its show to market it outside Japan. And add a couple exclamation points.
