Re: Dragon Ball Live Action TV Show?

I want ABC channel to do it! 1/2 live action, half animation. All races have to be covered and someone has to be in a wheelchair (Kuririn) They are all in highschool and when they have to fight they "power up" (more of a transformation) and the battle scenes are animated. Please tell me that statem...

Re: Goten, Trunks and Android 18.

Not sure if I posted in the thread. It seems to me as if the kids are fighting at a disadvantage in base. The suit is blamed. Even when they turn SSjin, they still feel they are at a disadvantage. Not from power as they scare Android 18 shitless from a suppressed ki blast, but because of the suit. ...

Re: Goten, Trunks and Android 18.

Xyex, really? It's all just pure speculation. Yes, really. There isn't any real interpreting going on that puts the kids that far below c18 in their regular forms never mind them being weaker than c18 as SSjins. There's absolutely nothing that suggests otherwise, except the rather absurd notion tha...

Re: Goten, Trunks and Android 18.

I don't see how there's much, if any, room to interpret it any way other than the kids being worlds ahead of c18. There's plenty of room. In fact, there's so much room I don't see how it's not possible. As I see it, if Base Goten is 10, and Trunks 11, then 18 is at least 350. (And the boy's SSJs wo...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

I can see how drawing a bunch of spots can be very tedious, especially if you have to draw them on almost every panel. It's even worse if you're anal about trying to make them even sort of consistent between them. I've always been kind of surprised that Toriyama kept up with them. Each time Cell tr...

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

What do Goten and Trunks have to do with it? He's already got Goku and Vegeta, and he's already got the SSJ aura, then the SSJ2 aura when he reaches Super Perfect. I think it's pretty clear he's got the SSJ forms, or some varriant there-of. Makes far more sense than anything else.

Yeah. Personally, I've never even considered Super Perfect Cell a zenkai of any description, but merely him transforming into his version of SSJ2. It just makes far more sense, especially considering his return to his Perfect Form appearance. Isn't it explicitly stated that Cell's powerup is due to...

Re: Piccolo Daimao Takes a Dive?!

I think regeneration is an entirely power based ability. We know it uses up ki because Freeza noted it when Nail did it. So it stands to reason, the stronger you are the better you're able to regenerate. So it's likely King Piccolo simply lacked the required amount of ki to regenerate his wound.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

Yeah, multipliers are nice for simpliticy's sake (espeically in the creation of PL lists), but should only be seriously used/considered when it comes to transformations (and the Kaioken). Nothing else in the series is multiplicative. Not training and not zenkais. Goku's training on his way to Namek ...

Re: How did the Kaioken X4 not obliterate Vegeta?

I think Vegeta's Galick Gun weakened the blast some. Then how was Gohan able to obliterate Cell? Shouldn't Cell's Kamehameha have softened the blast? Cell was engulfed, which (IMO at least) makes all the difference. Only the 'head' of the attack is likely to lose much in the way of energy, the stre...

Re: How did the Kaioken X4 not obliterate Vegeta?

Nothing says Vegeta was trying to kill him right off the bat. Raditz never would have lost if he'd taken his fight with Goku and Piccolo seriously. And eventually Goku started pulling out the Kaioken which helped even the balance.

Re: How did the Kaioken X4 not obliterate Vegeta?

First, a few things to correct here: And Piccolo's Makankosapo was only a few thousand points above Raditz level yet Raditz himself said he would have been done in if it had hit him. It was actually a few hundred points under Raditz. But it's also a drill type attack, designed to bore into and throu...

Re: Favorite old rumor

My favorite was when I was from way back when Toonami was still doing it's eternal repeats of the Saiyan and Namek stuff.

Re: Fanmanga - DB Multiverse

As for the armor, as the original manga shows and implies, a power level around the power of the main fighters of the Saiyan saga and early Namek saga is more than enough to destroy these armors. Only when the opponent is around that level. Clothing in Dragonball seems to gain some of the defensive...

Re: What Dragon Ball game do you want to see in 2013?

I'm actually kind of surprised the game companies haven't already tried putting the old DB/Z NES and SNES games on the VC.
