Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

Maybe it would help if we knew exactly What Toriyama said in that interview. Was this the same interview where he said Goku saw his family more as friends?

Re: Vic Mignogna

Yeah, South Park was always kinda problematic and it goes beyond the show’s awful take on trans people. The show has also promoted climate change denial and advocated that bigoted organizations should be allowed to keep their bigoted views. SP may not have created the “alt right” (no one thing can ...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

LMAO at the man babies trying to say TFS should be legal based solely on their emotions. I enjoyed TFS, but I’m able to look at the world objectively. And it’s not legal. Understandably so. Keep you’re uppity nonsense out of here.

Re: Worst Dub Errors/Mistranslations

I always wonder if Funimation was going off of the HG dub when they dub Tao Pai Pai as General Tao? He is called General Tao in both dubs. Then they eventually renamed him Mercenary Tao at some point which better fit his status as an assassin for hire. Probably but Toriyama gives his characters sil...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

Hell, if anything, the Dragon Ball revival was the reason TFS was able to maintain interest for so long and actually led to more fans checking them out.

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

"DBZA is supplanting the actual series in the minds of fans, it's annoying!" It ain't DBZA's fault that the main series can be so painfully mediocre at times. I doubt a bunch of stupid YouTube comments spouting TFS memes counts as “supplanting” anything. The fans who do that are like the 9000+ meme...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

The HGS idea was especially odd because it didn’t even look like anime. It was just your generic Steven Universe, Thundercats Roar art style that’s pushed on kids these days. I wouldn’t have minded them hiring actual directors from Jwpan to make original content exclusive to CR, ala Netflix (albeit ...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

I'm not down with cancel culture so I stay subscribed to Funimation. They have decent selection of shows there. At least you remember they have a library to choose from. These people act like their subscription for FUNimation's service means they were paying for one show instead of the entire libra...

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

The video games, 2008 special reception and the like did way more for the DB revival than TFS. That notion is embarrassing in its America centrism.

Re: Team Four Star's influence on Dragon Ball's revival

It certainly made people push jokes from a parody series into their reading of the actual show. I think that's unfair. TFS's jokes were already memes throughout much of the DB community. Yamcha is a loser, Krillin dies all the time, Goku is a lousy father, and disdain for power levels all predate T...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

So apparently Funimation’s comments are taking a pummeling at this time due to the butthurt this whole controversy caused. I was watching the FighterZ season 3 trailer and almost all the comments were fans pissy that their porn show was cancelled. I hate that all the criticism just got the perfect ...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

I'll admit I never heard of this anime until now, hearing that a piece of media is vanishing or potentially vanishing from the web does admittedly get me to rush to see it sometimes. However i'm not getting that urge here, i'm sure the dub will live on at the many Hentai anime unofficial streaming ...

Re: A couple or one sided romance?

Maybe they're friends who occassionally throw each other a bone during a dry spell? They're women-loving-women but not actually in a relationship? What? Why are you taking the extra and unnecessary step of just erasing the possibility of two women--whom you deem women-loving-women--being in a relat...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

But...why does anybody care about MAL rankings? I don't understand. So what if people like a show somebody else doesn't like? Because they aren’t ranking it in good faith. They just want it on the top to “own the libs” and fight against PC culture. Most of these people didn’t care about the show un...

Re: Boycotting DB related company - did you do it?

So in an update to this mess, not only FUNimation dropped the show, but also Amazon Prime and Tokyo MX channel as well. AnimeLab is also saying upcoming episodes are going to be delayed due to "adjusting its source material" as they put it. Guess this was too problematic beyond just FUNimation if a...

Re: Vic Mignogna

It baffles me that there’s so many people who legitimately believe an entire company decided to just make up lies and apparently ruin someone’s life for no reason.Vic stans are something else. One thing that’s particularly amusing to me is how quickly they turned against Monica Rial. Even going so ...
