Re: Are Saiyans rapists?

Dragon Ball being a kids' series says "no." Realism regrettably says "probably, yes." Nappa was even excited over the potential for human-Saiyan hybrids to be stronger than pure Saiyans, and I doubt he was talking about finding Mrs. Right. Why are we assuming that "sex by force" the only option ava...

Re: DB in live action: what does and does not work (pics)

There are four areas of any proposed live action Dragon Ball adaption that needs to be addressed: Costumes Hair styles Creature designs Story Costumes are probably the easier to do, but can easily go wrong. Comic book movies took a while to figure out how accurate to make them. You have to take into...

Re: If Disney buys 21st Century Fox they'll be getting the Dragon Ball movie rights

I'm more worry about Fox's other movies like Alien/Predator, Die Hard, The Fly and Deadpool being run by Disney than DB being ran by them. You can kiss R rated movies good by Disney unless Deadpool sequels, Future Die Hard sequels and future Alien/Predator movies are release by Touchstone Pictures....

Is the break in formula the reason for Super hate?

For the most part:

Goku is unavailable. Everyone else fights the bad guys. They get smacked around. Goku comes in and takes over.

This happens a few times in the first half of the series.

It's been almost all Goku for over a hundred episodes.

How old is Freeza?

Freeza had ruled longer than Goku was alive. Goku was in his late-mid twenties when Trunks kills Freeza. How long would his species live if they manage to never have any run-ins with super saiyans?

Re: Why is Vegeta's life-long obsession/rivalry with Goku?

My take is that, while Goku has never beaten Vegeta, the mere fact that a lower class nobody on some backwater planet who was getting curbstombed in a 2v1 fight with Radditz is forcing him to go Oozaru. Then he has the gall to spare his life once his group defeats him. Then the next time Vegeta enco...

Re: Cell arc - Does the mystery work well?

My own understanding of the changes to the timeline: 19 and 20 attack. Maybe the Z-Fighters investigate, maybe they don't until more of these attacks occur. Either way, between the first attack and whenever everyone encounters 17 and 18, Gero has been continuously tinkering with 17 and 18 to bring t...

Re: Did Dragon Ball REALLY need Funimation to thrive?

I believe there was only one instance of blood in the series (first episode?) and yes, Gordon got shot off-screen . And while laser guns are more powerful than regular ones, the entire point was that they didn't like realistic guns being used. I guess they took the approach that they didn't want it...

Re: Did Dragon Ball REALLY need Funimation to thrive?

Funimation altered the shit out of Toriyama and Toei's work. The implied point of contention embedded in the question is: were Funimation's radical alterations necessary for Dragon Ball to thrive in the US? So the analogies don't really work. So the answer is either: Seeing as the series did not ca...

Re: How far away are we from a "proper Hollywood treatment"?

Whenever people site bad adaptations, they usually use the ones when they changed stuff and it wasn't as good or interesting as the source material. At best we get the original FullMetal Alchemist where they finished the anime without a manga conclusion. Middle ground is the Iron Man 3 Mandarin, whe...

It's going to suck if it happens, just like most, if not all, of todays Hollywood blockbusters. There are a lot of things they'd need to do in order for it not to, among them are : 1- It needs a big budget : I honestly don't see any major studio offering anyone 200 or so million to work on an unpro...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" (PS4/XBO/PC, 2018, Arc System Works) Official Discussion Thread

If this game is a competitive success then I wouldn't expect a sequel for six more years. None of the other currently popular fighting games have sequels as far apart as Street Fighter and Tekken do, so it's kind of unfair to expect that of other fighting games. I wouldn't call any fighting game po...

Re: How do you define a good dub?

I personally prefer a good interpretation over a good translation. I was as close to the same experience as the native viewers. If a character sounds like as a brutish country oaf in which the work is produced, I think I should get that same impression in whatever culture I'm watching it in. If the ...
