Re: Thoughts on a potential Netflix series.

This thread has reinforced my belief that, if a new live action DB movie NEEDS to be made, I don’t want anyone in the (US/English speaking) west to have ANY involvement.

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 ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Vic Mignogna is a scumbag. I've seen him inappropriately touch underaged cosplayers at Youmacon in person at photo ops. When it came time for me, a guy, to take a photo with him. He wouldn't even put his hand on my shoulder. Funny how he stops being handsy around his male fans. Saw him one other ti...

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

But was it really FUNimation's fault for not knowing the kind of show this was or the anime studio's fault for ramping up the sexual content in comparison to the source material? That’s a fair point, I guess. I guess I’d prefer it if these companies were more selective in what they licensed. This i...

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

I’m surprised Sentai weren’t the ones to nab this series. It seems more in line with things like Monster Musume or that Qwaser show that... made me really uncomfortable. They seem to have little to NO shame! :lol: Though, thinking it over, I wonder if Funi only licensed it in a bundle with some othe...

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

This isn’t the first time Funimation shot themselves in the foot by licensing a title without doing the proper research. As I recall, they were in a bit of hot water with Dance in the Vampire Bund.

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

A friend of mine told me what kind of shit is in Ishuzoku Reviewers, and... Well... I mean, it looks like straight up thinly-veiled hentai, with loli shit. Nothing of value has been lost. And that's why I can't take this situation seriously. The anime community is in uproar... over what is basicall...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

I think it’s less we should censor the past as much as we should maybe leave problematic garbage behind and focus on promoting anime that promote a more progressive agenda. I am not advocating for "censoring the past." I am explaining why I don't see anything wrong with censoring rereleases when th...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

There's a lot of inane bits of comedy throughout the series that don't enhance the product or actually make the audience laugh. ChiChi the shrieking banshee filler, Roshi the sex offender filler, Krillin the eternal loser filler. All of that stuff should be trimmed down and removed because, and be ...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

I personally feel that if anyone thinks the series should be retroactively censored, that they automatically forfeit any right to complain about all of the censorship that the franchise has been through in the past and now present with Toei's butchered movie releases. Even if times change and socie...

That’s absolutely a coded call to attack. He doesn’t care about the people he’s hurt and continues to hurt. White male Christian conservatives only care about their own self interests and always will.

Re: Hosting a Q&A panel with Vic Mignogna

Meh, do what you want. Just prepare for the MASSIVE backlash and drama you will (understandably) get. The only issue I have is too many anime fans side with Vic. It’s so goddamn cringy.

This forum does kinda act like there’s a contest as to hates the Funi dub the most. Of which I win :wink: because aside from the visually impaired, I think dubbing is an outdated practice.

Fuck right off with this “you need to be civil about the way you talk about your abuser” I thought we dispensed with this idiocy six months ago but apparently some people are slow learners.

Re: Vic Mignogna

I mean, I mainly brought up Shield Hero because 1, people were comparing Vic favorably to the titular character and 2, to show how we STILL distribute such fucked up anime in the US. The DearS example, while enlightening, misses the point. Yeah, there’s more fucked up media that’s been released befo...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Also, the way the show presents itself, it makes Naofumi & his party the only competent ones in that dimension with the exception of the Queen who had no issue putting a slave crest on her own daughter when she already had enough evidence to convict her anyway. On top of that same said daughter get...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Also, is this a better or worse turn for the topic than the al qaeda guy from before? I'm gonna say its pretty lateral. Defending the 9/11 hijackers versus defending slavery: those two seem to roughly cancel one another out in terms of which is more brain-meltingly hideous, idiotic, and deranged. I...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Slavery is inherently dehumanizing and cruel, treating sentient beings as property with no agency over themselves. More than that it's almost always prejudiced toward certain groups and not equally represented, so even if you're not talking about American slavery you still get a little bit of that ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Another issue is the slave girl in Shield Hero is literally ten years old. Granted, she grows and matured into a young woman as she levels up, but still. She falls in love with him in a way that gives off Stockholm syndrome vibes. Just creepy any way you try and rationalize it, especially since she ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

There's only one anime/manga involving rape scenes that I can think of that I am a fan of - Berserk. Those scenes certainly aren't portrayed as good, inconsequential, or played for laughs. I don't know how other people here would categorize Berserk's use of rape but I think it is treated as a serio...
