Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

No I don’t see why people have this idea that a show like dragon ball needs to cater to x,y or z Go find some other show for that or make your own. So you're saying that Dragon Ball is a franchise that does cater and should cater exclusively to straight cis people? We're saying DB should be what To...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Goku didn't take a dive, not using a dangerous power draining form and instead choosing to use his optimal ssj2 form is not taking a dive. The fight didn't conclude but for the most part Vegeta had the upper hand. If we're going to say Goku was holding back because he didn't use Ssj3 ,then we can a...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

He lost to Kuririn at the same time which is kinda sad. He did assist in beating Cell. so did Yamcha. Don't let Dabura fight Buu and have him be the grand master behind everything and the final villain of Z. He looks the part. He did ? Krillin hit him with the spirit bomb with Gohan's help but even...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Vegeta is like the DBZ version of Kane. He looks awesome and super strong but when it comes down to it he gets beaten. It's incredible how they never gave him a big win versus a major character. He can only get a win against jokes like Kui and Zarbon. After that he kills Android 20...and PuiPui. Wo...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Hate to be that guy, but Vegeta defeated Goku in the Saiyan arc. That's a fact, not an opinion. Vegeta as an ape broke every bone in Goku's body. Even before that, the Kaioken damaged Goku's body so much that he couldn't take a simple slap from Yajerobe so even if he didn't transform, Vegeta could'...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

I don't understand how this thread is even a question. Should more LGBTQIA+ folks be included? Yeah. This isn't what we're talking about. The question is whether or not an author should give in to fan demands, and to that I say no. If you're writing a story, I want to read your story, not the story...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

So just don't deliver what people want, causing people to stop buying your product. Great idea . If you can't buy something that isn't exactly what you want, it doesn't mean everyone else will do the same thing. Toriyama went as far as to say he did exactly that all the time during the manga's orig...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

No one mentioned the fact that at the end of the video the guy said “There is more than just the Dragon Ball Z saga” I hope it isn't just a mistake on his part like what happened with Raging Blast 2 when someone said it would include GT as well. I do think it's safe to say it'll include Cell and Buu.

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

If a commercial product is being made and sold for profit, then obviously the consumers have the right to decide what they do and don't want to see in it, and vote on it with their wallets. Of course you can ask for things, I just think it is a massive mistake for creators to listen. There is a spo...

They get things right for other anime. We were even told by voice actors that it was a thing so something clearly changed.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

I just find it so appalling, literally no one questions their credibility? In any other fandom they would have been called out way before this. No one questions them because this is one of the few times they got it wrong. Most of the time they get things right or pretty close. I don't think there's...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

So you get to decide which complaints are 'valid' or not? I'm saying the ones that are valid are those related to consistency. If a rule is set up in any story then the reader or viewer is going to expect the story to follow it through. Let me put it this way, valid complaints are ones the author s...

There are too many and it's just getting ridiculous now!' 3- 'Let characters other than Goku and Vegeta shine for once!' 4- 'That fight shouldn't have g...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

Well... yeah. That's capitalism. I'm talking about an author losing support or backing away from a project out of fear of what certain groups in society are saying. That's not capitalism, it's fear. Like, what specific times are you referring to? Like, I'm sure it's happened a few times, but... It ...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

I wouldn't call that "a right being lost". I'd call that society changing in such a way that some people make a stink over what they see in a movie. Not quite the same thing. I don't mean it lost in a government way but rather society (or rather a vocal minority that don't support what they call fo...

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

I'm of the belief that it's not "time to" do anything. I believe that every creator has the right to make his or her work the way that he or she sees fit. That's what it means to truly have freedom of expression, freedom of choice, and artistic freedom. That right in America (and other Western coun...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The latter is far more of a problem then the former honestly. I have to agree. Something safe wouldn't be so bad (it's still an issue) if it at least tried to be original. What makes things worse is that what Super takes from the past ends up being worse than the original. As much as I want 2uper t...

Seriously, conspiracy theory is what makes sense?
Someone pointed out a few weeks (or months) ago that Toei or another Japanese company did that before to catch who was leaking their information. They gave certain people false info and when it leaked, they knew who did it.

That's just what he thinks. At this point I don't think anyone knows what's going on with it.
