Re: The villain who killed Jiren's Master

You forgot that in the manga Marcarita says that Angels can’t revive those killed by a Demon, and they are clearly talking about Gicchin’s killler. And later we see Whis is able to revive Freeza. So it seems like they are a category of people, and for some reason the powers of Angels are ineffectiv...

Re: Why Dragon Ball Won't Get a Game?

There have been plenty - you just need to go to a prior generation of consoles to play them. Advance Adventure on the GBA is widely considered to be one of the franchise's best games period. Dragon Ball DS 2 / Origins 2 on the DS (obviously enough!) massively improved on the first game (namely by no...

Re: Hindsight makes Frieza look like a hero for destroying the Saiyans

It's not heroism if it's explicitly for the wrong reasons. There are grades of this along the way. Gohan wants to be a superhero to help people for the right reasons (because it's the right thing to do). Goku often times inadvertently helps people (or, like, saves the planet), but does know it's the...

Re: The villain who killed Jiren's Master

I have read on Dragon Ball wiki that it was a demon who killed Jiren's parents, but I couldn't find any source. If it's really a demon, then it could easily be written as a powerful and malevolent entity and definitely a future villain (not sure if it's enough to carry an entire arc though). Is it ...

Re: Which of the pre-BoG movie villains would you say was the best?

Yeah, like what?! Movie 1 is great! :D I actually really like the angle they went with for Garlic Sr. The First of the Garlics aiming for the role of God, not getting it, and raising a literal Hell army in response. Gives some much-needed lore around "uhh so God just sits up there I guess?" Totally ...

I'm having a hard time parsing what it is you're actually asking, and this might be based more on what your original post was pre-editing, but Hildegarn/Hirudegarn is simply based on the "in shock" sound ("gaaaan!") assistant producer Sei'ichi Hiruta made when he saw the design.

Re: Super Dragon Ball Heroes (Manga) Discussion Thread

Why do they get someone so useless to draw this manga but then someone who actually has talent like Dragon Garrow Lee then only does the one off Yamcha manga? Nagayama has been at this far longer than I think a lot of people realize, and it's likely a combination of inertia and workflow. See, Nagay...

Agreed - if you’re not interested, simply don’t respond. If you truly believe it’s not worth discussing, no one else will respond, and you’ll be proven right without needing to make a scene.

Asking for and expecting someone to regularly translate 30+ pages of dialog is unreasonable for the vast majority of people. It’s a very specific skill set and very demanding amount of time.

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

V-Jump. It’s a monthly magazine from Shueisha, primarily focused on video games, released on the 21st of each month (barring a Sunday or holiday, in which case it gets moved up to the next appropriate day). Everything you could want to know about the magazines- https://www.kanzenshuu.com/2017/03/16/...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Y'all have to have some sort of Dragon Ball (Toriyama, etc., whatever) angle to your discussion.

That's the rule. You know the rule.

Some of you continue to push this, knowing that you're doing this, doing it on purpose, and you will soon no longer have an account if it continues.
