Re: Vegeta and Goku's name

Saiyan pride. Goku's birth name (Kakarot) is his Saiyan name, his true name (in Vegeta's eyes), and anything else is inferior / illegitimate.

Re: Why IS Android 17 So Strong???

The anime says he trains. That's good enough for me, because his power source is an "infinite energy reactor." If we take that at face value, his energy is literally limitless. He could be stronger than Zeno. But at one point, he was weaker than Cell. That's because his infinite energy is limited by...

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

I watch the promo videos for DB Heroes on YouTube when they pop up. There's some wild and crazy shit that I'd like to know more about. So as long as this isn't replacing DB Super, the continuation of the series proper, I'm fine with it. In fact, I'm looking forward to it.

Re: Do you prefer “human” or “mortal” for the non-deities?

Try this: Leave "ningen" completely untranslated in a dub / sub. Then ask an average viewer what it means. Literally NO ONE will say "human," because it very obviously includes Saiyans, Namekians, Babarians, etc. Context wins. It is simple and practical. I can understand arguments against translatio...

Re: Do you prefer “human” or “mortal” for the non-deities?

In the context it's used in, "ningen" very obviously means "mortal." No need to complicate this children's cartoon show.

If you feel compelled to write a dissertation against that, you're probably just a nerd who likes to argue pedantics. And no one likes you.

Re: What in the Universe Survival Arc did you hate most?

What's wrong with that? I'm not being facetious, I'm genuinely interested. The humor wore off very quickly. Since that was the characters' defining trait, with no deeper development, they quickly became annoying. Then they stuck around long enough to become grating. The first U2 episode was fine, e...

Re: Who do you think the villain is in the new up-coming DBS movie?

Not Yamoshi, but the evil Saiyan leader that he fought against.

Caulifla uses the U6 Namekian DBs in her quest to get stronger. She wishes for the strongest Saiyan of all time to appear, hoping to train with him, but he turns out to be an evil bastard, and far more powerful than she imagined.

Re: Super Episode 131 (25 March 2018)

Wow. A lot of b!tching about Zeno. Look at it this way: Zeno has erased universes in the past. He was stated to be considering doing so again before the ToP. He held a tournament in which universes were erased, and he could do something similar again in the future. This time, the fate of everything ...

Wow. I am surprised and impressed that they managed to wrap everything up, and deliver a strong and satisfying ending on such short notice. I'm happy with it, I'm looking forward to the movie, and I'll be quite happy if a Dragonball series returns next year. :clap: Sayonara for now, Son Goku and fri...

Re: Official "DB 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

I like it. The animation style is old school, but quality old school.

I got some serious Super Saiyan 4 vibes from Goku's opponent.

Re: Super Episode 129 (4 March 2018)

Reused animation doesn't bother me. I rarely recognize it until it's pointed out later. Probably because I don't rewatch episodes enough times to commit them to memory. For example, the only time I was aware of it in this episode was the bit from the show opening. Because I've seen that dozens of ti...

Re: What do you think about F Trunks not sticking around?

It makes sense for he and Mai to have taken up residence in the main timeline. The SDBs would have been a perfect prize for him to fight in the ToP for, to restore his timeline. Presuming the wish is used to restore the defeated universes, he and Mai could then set off on a GT-inspired space mission...

Re: Super Episode 128 (18 February 2018)

They only have a couple episodes left, and they're wasting time with Vegeta's motivations (which has already been covered a few episodes ago), and Jiren vs. Vegeta in base, which should be over in one hit. I like a good tournament arc, but this needed better planning from the start. It's new, and I ...

It can't be Goku Black, or anyone from the series' present, using a Time Ring. Time Rings can only take one into the future and back, not into the past.

Re: Why do Kaioshins have Potara Earrings with the ability to fuse with one another?

Maybe powerful mortals using the fusion dance once rose up against the gods, so the gods used their mystical powers to create a more powerful means of fusion.
