Re: Is young Chi-Chi problematic?

I don't think it was really problematic in the manga/anime, but unfortunately, it is a design that could be easily sexualized. It really just depends on how artists decide to use it, at least in my opinion. In the manga/anime, it looks cute, but I personally don't see it as sexually appealing.

Re: Pedophilia in Dragon Ball

I'm probably wrong (correct me if so), but I don't really remember Mai being the one who falls for Trunks From what I can remember, Trunks asked her to be his girlfriend in Battle of Gods. I think she kind of just played along with it (that and the Pilaf Gang just wanted food). I don't think it's su...

After the bad taste the prequels left in a lot of people's mouths, I guess I can see where you're coming from

Re: Why do so many Z fans refuse to watch the original Dragon Ball?

So I'm late, but I think a major reason why people who only watched Z won't watch Dragon Ball is simply because they don't see the need to do so. By the time Dragon Ball started airing on Toonami, Z was already about to start the Buu Arc. They were already ~67% finished with Z, and by then got to kn...

Re: Would you like to see Goku age and become old eventually?

Quick thought: Goku becoming an old man doesn't have to be depressing or anything. He's such a light-hearted character, and I'm sure he would still act the way he currently does despite of his greater limitations.

Re: Would you like to see Goku age and become old eventually?

Reading this thread reminded me of the "Old Geezer Goku" Toriyama drew somewhere around 1989 or 1990 while commenting that he didn't know when or how he'd end the series, and that maybe it'll end with Goku as an old man https://external-preview.redd.it/lNxMTAiUJOwKU30n5NnktBMUPdfOC5NlRhHs6f_ACJ4.png...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

It's a really forced relationship While on the subject of bad couples, I also don't like Gohan and Videl. Not because I can't see it as a thing, it's because I feel like Videl just became a really boring housewife. Like, Chi-Chi is also a housewife, but to an extent she's there for some comedy. Vide...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I really hate Bulma and Vegeta as a couple. They're not really fit for each other and it feels like the pairing is only a thing because Toriyama needed some background information for Future Trunks. In his own timeline, it's very clear that Bulma and Vegeta weren't close. Trunks mentions that he was...

Re: Does anyone ever actually watch the Z dub with the Kikuchi score?

I grew up with the English dub, but over the years, it became extremely difficult to watch the series with the Faulconer score. Mostly because I also grew up watching the Spanish (Latin-American) dub, which used the Kikuchi score. I began to notice that the dub score didn't fit quite as well. There ...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

Sorry to butt in, but how are you guys getting access to Netflix/ Amazon Japan?

I'd love to watch these remasters. They look super clean (even with some of the color issues)

Re: Goku with Saiyan armor (Cell Saga): did you like it or not?

I think it was refreshing. I've always been a fan of seeing Goku wearing different outfits. That, and I guess it did make sense for him to try it out. He was in the RoS&T for close to a year, and I doubt his traditional gi would've lasted considering how it ends up after every major fight

Re: Aspects of the dub script you prefer.

I like the additional humor or bits of fanservice the Dragon Ball Super dub has added. Personal favorite addition was making Goku sing "Cha-La-Head-Cha-La" when he reunites with the Nimbus Cloud in episode 76. That filler arc was so boring in the original version, but at least the guys at Funimation...
