Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

Offering a disenting opinion. Are we not allowed to do so? I don't think this stuff has a lot of value to people nor makes them happy. It feels more like a compulsion. I don't put it in those terms, and I think those points I've brought up and a dissenting opinion have value. Could we say each vers...

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

GT is it's own canon, the movies are their own canon, Super is it's own canon, the Super manga is it's own canon, etc. I think so. Obviously a work exists to itself. That's really not actually saying anything. Saying "GT exists to itself" is meaningless. The discussion of canon pertains to how offi...

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

World building is incredibly overrated. All other things being equal, it's nice for things to fit nice and tidy in a serialized story, but if they don't, the stories can still be good. You bring up X-Men, even out of all that mess we still got X2, DoFP, First Class, and most recently Logan. The Evi...

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

Get out of my brain! You could just, y'know, step away and never worry about Dragon Ball canon again. Let the canon-obsessed have their fun, and you could free up some brain-space for something else. And that's the end if the matter as far as a person who doesn't care about Canon should be concerne...

Re: Official "DB Super 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

If they change him too much then he won't be anything like Broly and fans will complain that it's just Broly in name only. I don't care if people complain about that. To me that is the best case scenario. A new "Broly" but he is only Broly by name and is instead an interesting character that is par...

Vegito clowned around against Buu, Gogeta on the other hand straight up murdered Janemba without hesitation And how does personality affect gameplay in any way? The Dragonball franchise post...

Re: What makes Dragon Ball special?

@Kunzait's super long post with many gifs Most of those gifs pertain to action that really only start in Z. Also, even if that awesome Chinese stuff came first, no one really cared.

Re: At this point in time how popular is the Dragon ball franchise

When y'all's say "It's very popular" it that just popular in terms of people are aware of it and they have a favorable response to the concept in general, or are people actively engaging in the franchise? I have several friends who watch various anime but none watch anything Dragonball related besid...

Re: Why IS Android 17 So Strong???

Personally, I've come to the thought that we have to rescale our thoughts on power when dealing with Super. The rankings are still the same, but the gaps between not as much. This would allow for individual growth without levels being absurd. In Super, everyone was freaking out because Freeza return...

Re: Do you think 2018 will be a great year for Dragon Ball?

The weekly Dragon Ball TV series, which has been broadcasting since 2014, is ended. Until 14th December there will be nothing interesting. So 2018 is a bad year for Dragon Ball. This. I came in wondering what was so great about this entire year. Super ended and the movie won't be out for several mo...

Re: If Toriyama had stuck to his original plan for the Android saga?

In any scenario where things are different than we know them to be, we have no idea how much we would have liked or dislike the path taken or culmination. It's like trying to figure the path of sequences if Goku didnt have any heart problems while fighting 19.

What's the deal with these Earthlings?

It seems like from the moment aliens are introduced into the story, it seems that just about every non-earth group we encounter is leagues ahead of earthling in the energy manipulation department. Everyone seems to be able to fly and shoot energy blasts. What really drives it home is that a uninjure...

How was it watching a Dragonball series as the episodes aired?

I only got to experience this before with the english dub back in to Toonami days. I had ine friend who was kind of into the show as well, but not as much as me. I didn't have a community to discuss things with back then. Was anyone here around during any of the original shows airings in Japan? No m...

Re: Was Goku reactive or proactive in Ball, Super, GT and Z?

His goal is simple - to become as strong as he possibly can be. He is constantly working towards that goal. He seeks out stronger opponents, new masters, etc. He also refines his training methods over time. The first half is correct. That is his goal and he is proactive in training more and more. T...

Re: Was Goku reactive or proactive in Ball, Super, GT and Z?

Reactive. All he wants is to be the strongest, but in the mean time all of these enemies come along. I wonder how long he'd have stayed on that mountain alone if Bulma hadn't come along... Okay, but he's not passive. He has a very simple goal and sets out to achieve it. The enemies do come along, b...

Re: Was Goku reactive or proactive in Ball, Super, GT and Z?

Fair enough, but being proactive isn't limited to actively looking for a threat. A proactive, or an active character will take steps to achieve their goal instead of JUST reacting to whatever happens to them. Kuririn's death may have been the inciting incident, but Goku didn't just go wherever the ...

Re: Was Goku reactive or proactive in Ball, Super, GT and Z?

Goku is always reactive. Bulma shoots him in the face and asks him to come with her. RR comes after his dragon ball. Tambourine kills Krillin. I'm not sure if he knew Piccolo was going to be at the 23rd Tourney. Raditz shows up, Goku dies and trains for the next set of Saiyans. Once healed, he zipp...
