Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Obviously, the statement for Super Saiyan 3 got retconed, at least for the anime. And/or, it's just a pretty generic statement that was used to describe most, if not all, of the power-ups and transformations that Gokuu and his friends underwent throughout the series, such as the Super God Water, Sa...

Re: Was Kid Boo holding back against Goku?

Was Goku holding back? He says that he "showed off" too much. How are we to interpret this? Does he mean he could have defeated him but because he wanted to "show off", his energy was lost in the meantime? Personally, I thought he meant that he showed off too much by agreeing to not use the potara ...

Re: Vegetto: Heightened Fighting Intuition.

Vegetto's power was so absurd, it just seemed unlikely that Buu could take him by surprise when he transformed him into candy. Really? Vegetto looked pretty damn surprised when Boo turned him into candy. I think it was just a mixture of luck and Vegetto's overwhelming strength (as well as the fight...

Re: Would Piccolo Daimaou have lived that long?

How could you reconcile Kami basically saying, "I think I might die in the next year, but if it's not through Piccolo being killed by the Saiyans, then it may be me dying of natural causes", and then him continuing to live for six years without any signs of deterioration? Either Toriyama forgot (as ...

Re: The All-Purpose "Versus" Thread

Apparently it looks like AT got rid of it as well considering Gohan is shown as a Ssj in the new movie coming out. The bloody film's not even out yet, for Dende's sake. We've only seen SS Gohan when he's "meant" to be "Ultimate" on a promotional poster. (Haven't seen the trailer yet, though, but th...

Re: Dub fans on about the 'manly' voice for Goku..

To be honest, now that I've become fully acquainted with both the original Japanese version and the English dubs of the Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z anime, the only real problem I have with Masako Nozawa's Gokuu is that she sounds a little too shrill when she screams. I prefer Sean Schemmel because...

Re: Would Piccolo Daimaou have lived that long?

I think Kami was just mistaken about his natural death drawing near. After Piccolo died, it was never mentioned that he was worried about it anymore or anything. I'd assume his lifespan must be drawing somewhat near to the end, for him to even consider it it a possibility that it would naturally en...

That was anime filler. In the manga, the Kienzan was never used on neither Cell nor Gohan.

Re: Vegeta and Yajirobe

Vegeta's not the type to hold grudges. If he did, he would've gone after #18, having seven years to do so, but as far as we know, nothing happened between them after that initial fight. Vegeta just surpassed her by far, beat up Cell, lost his rival to death, sulked for a bit, and then continued trai...

Re: Uhm.. Am I missing something here? (Drummond VS Sabat)

To be honest, while I recognize the few good qualities in Drummond's Vegeta (it does sound appropriately snarky), I've never liked his performance as much as some other people here seem to. I was just unable to take him seriously, and he just sounded like an over-the-top, Saturday morning cartoon, t...

Re: Gohan didn't go SSJ2 when attacking Boo's ball?

I don't understand why everyone seems to have so much trouble understanding why Gohan didn't use SSJ2 against Dabura or to attack Buu's egg. Before Gohan transforms, he has an inner thought remembering Goku telling him to fight like he was against Cell. Gohan then states that he "can't be like he w...

Re: What's The Deal With Gohan's Blond Hair?

I too think that Gohan being Super Saiyan on that official movie poster is just promotional marketing, since the only time we’ve ever seen his Boo arc incarnation be both SS with that gi is in marketing (like that picture Metrite posted), or in video games (the same medium that allows you to play as...

Re: Gohan didn't go SSJ2 when attacking Boo's ball?

I think you could argue that Vegeta was using the form the entire time he was possessed. It really comes down to how the form is perceived, not everyone will share a similar viewpoint on it. I think it would be purposely obtuse of Toriyama to make Super Saiyan 2 something that can sometimes be indi...

Re: What do you think happened to Mr. Satan in Trunks' timel

Once the Androids became infamous, Mr. Satan would've invited cameramen to witness him challenge the Androids and save Earth, but eventually he and the cameraman would be swiftly killed by them. Admittedly, that's pretty boring, but I think it's the most plausible scenario.

Re: The morals of Muten Roshi

Yeah, what Muten Roushi did to Blooma (and presumably Lunch too, if she’s so ditzy as to allow him to dress her up in lingerie) would probably count as sexual harassment, therefore illegal. But since this is a Shounen manga aimed at young boys, and every one of Roushi’s advances towards women are in...
