I just released a video concept on the inevitable Pikkon:

Re: How to properly watch GT ?

Watch it while drunk and high. :P

But seriously, the singles and Green bricks are good if you really wanna watch and own GT. Maybe the FUNimation streaming service.

Re: Should Dragon Ball adopt more Seinen storylines?

They could've made Super a senien or have a story revolving around Vegeta's childhood.

Re: What are people’s thoughts on how increasingly “normal” the world of Dragon Ball became?

The "extraordinary" martial artists weren't actively in the public eye like Mr. Satan. Likewise, the old Tenkaichi Budokai were more of an underground event that was done for tradition and love for the sport. The fighters in the new Tenkaichi Budokai aren't real martial artists but rather celebritie...

Re: What characters do you think they can add for FighterZ 2?

This game already has all the characters that we need and some, so I think Season 3 will be our last line of DLC. On top of that, one of the three remaining is already pretty much confirmed via datamine ( Omega Shenron ) while the other two are no-brainers ( Master Roshi and Pikkon ). Now what can ...

Re: Why wasn’t there a proper theatrical Dragon Ball film back in the day?

Before Battle of Gods, none of the DB movies were meant to be major releases but rather retreats from the main story. That's why they're barely an hour long.

FUNimation also couldn't afford to put them in theaters.

Re: “There is nothing to learn from Dragon Ball,” says Akira Toriyama’s editor, Kazuhiko Torishima

The funny thing about that quote is that Toriyama said the exact same thing and they're not wrong. Author's intent and what they actually wrote are two different things. Also, a story doesn't need to be particularly deep to have central themes going on or characters with personality. If Dragon Ball...

Re: “There is nothing to learn from Dragon Ball,” says Akira Toriyama’s editor, Kazuhiko Torishima

It's worth taking into account that the way he experienced DB is very different from us. Unlike fans who get the completed work, and who watch/read it multiple times to pick up on everything, Torishima probably just read the scripts, while probably multi tasking, and only once. There's simply no wa...

It's a huge stretch. Everyone knows Dragon Ball isn't literary genius but saying there's nothing to gain from it is kinda unfair especially considering how many people it influenced. https://youtu.be/2QKsmx1fosY https://youtu.be/Yd4rBkXLBLI "Hard work trumps over natural talent", "there's always som...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

The only meaningful filler is the one Goku learns how to drive, as it explains why we see Goku driving later on. Then again, one could say Goku driving is not useful at all and so all fillers are meaningless. But...did they know that he'd be driving later on? I doubt Toriyama even did. Goku always ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I think Yamu deserved a fight. Considering he was smarter of the two, it would be nice to see his fighting style combined with Majin power. Maybe against Krillin in the World Tournament at least. Come to think of it, I don't even remember who he was supposed to fight before it got interrupted. Kril...

Re: Do you think it’s true that Goku didn’t have character development?

It's true to the extent that his character arc already ended and he's basically a living zombie. OG Dragon Ball was about his journey of becoming a great martial artist so there's quite a bit of development there, while Z shows his adult life after achieving his goals including becoming a family man...

Re: What DB level was Videl at her best?

Far stronger than any ordinary human but doesn't rank very high in context of Dragon Ball. Videl's best feats are accidentally twisting Spopovich's neck 180° with a kick and busting a sandbag after beating on it for a long time (anime-only) but that's nothing compared to dudes who can destroy planet...

Re: Would you say Dragonball Evolution is better or worse than The Last Airbender?

Better I would say because with Evolution, people at least knew it was going to suck and its suckiness is sorta an art form. The Last Airbender looked promising but was just bad (not even enjoyable bad either).

After recent update, do you think a sequel for FighterZ can still happen?

As we enter season 3 of FighterZ, a major upgrade was taken to the meta and interface including selectable assist moves, changes to properties of character's moves, and redesign of the character and stage select screen. Do you think there's still room for a sequel? https://i.imgur.com/22kjXxz.png I ...
