Re: The Golden Age Of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball

I say that the 'Golden Age' of Dragonball is Piccolo Daimao through Cell, even though I really like the 22nd Budokai and kind of 'meh' on the Artificial Humans stuff.

Re: Favorite Super Saiyan Transformation Scene

Believe it or not, my favorite Super Saiyan transformation would have to be Goku's first transformation into SSJ4 in GT. Even though I'm not crazy about the rest of that poorly done series, that moment was the first thing I ever saw of GT which convinced me that it was on the level of Z for many yea...

Re: Removing story mode in future DBZ fighting games

I sort of agree with Kunzait. While not a huge fighting game fan(I really only play Soul Calibur,Virtua Fighter,Capcom Vs., and the Naruto and DBZ stuff) I agree that Story Modes in Fighting Games are, in general, tacked on tripe that is just there to force the player into grinding for hours. Howeve...

Re: Dragonball game crossovers you'd like to see

Crossovers, huh? Well, honestly, the only other franchise I could see working with DBZ is, well, Sonic. As much as he's hated by some professional gaming sites and reviewers. I could easily see a crossover between them just due to the blatant similarities alone, as it's how I do crossovers myself. ...

Re: Backstories as seperate volumes?

This is a bit of an interesting question for me, as I would absolutely love to get really deep into the personalities of Lunch, Tenshinhan, Chaotzu, Freeza, and especially Pilaf. Really, anything to get away from the all Saiyan hour that the series became in the the last parts of Z. However, I don'...

Re: Dragon Ball Ranking

Dragonball manga kind of fluctuates between the 8th and 4th spots for me. It switches places with One Piece depending on my mood. The anime proably ranks about 42nd because of how inconsistent and long it is. When I ask less hardcore DB fans where it ranks, they often say it's in their 20th-25th spo...

Re: Pit Stop at Arlia - Was there a point?

This is just going to be a total pull-it-out-of-my-ass/fanfic-y type of answer, but here you go: What if the pods needed fuel? Maybe they stopped on the planet so they could liquify the corpses of the arlians and use them as a cheap energy source. Perhaps Vegeta gathered them off screen after he des...

Re: Is the DBZ fighting game franchise a dying breed?

Dragonball create-a-character is a great idea, in theory. But, really, you have to think about who we're giving this power to. Outside of this site, the average DB fan is the kind of person you see posting comments on youtube. These are petty, fickle people who will not hesitate to cuss you out if y...

No time to read everything right now, in a rush, but: When you truck solely in mainstream Shonen and little else I stuck with Jump because I was sticking with Jump's general western equivalent with Marvel and/or DC~ Same here. I would love a Seinen, Gekiga, or lesser known Shonen vs. Dragonball but...

Re: Bizarre merchandise time

There's a store near where I work that sells erotic scented candels with the images on them of the cast at the end of the first opening credits, as well as the one with everybody giving Cell the finger. FYI: "Erotic Scented' usually means they give off a breatheable aphrodisiac as they burn. :shock...

I would. Well, maybe not at first, but at some point I would give in to the little otaku inside my head and start wearing it to school, despite the obvious drawbacks.

If you could, would you divide the Dragonball Series more?

If I could add more divisions to the Dragonball series, I would. To me, it would help if the various story arc groups were presented as seperate because (a) it would get rid of the stupid Z subtitle and (B) it would embrace how disjointed the series feels at times instead of trying to ignore it.

OOOH! New Idea! How about Shonen Jump vs. Square Enix? Luffy vs. Cloud! Piccolo vs. Sephiroth(which, of course, would force millions of fangirls to buy the game just so they can prove that their character is the best)! Another possibility could be Studio Pierrot vs. Toei. Of course, that would put a...

Re: Pre-Z Dragon Ball fighting game

I, personally, would love to see an original DB fighting game in the style of Capcom's Vs. series, but perhaps with a bit more focus on elegant chains that would more accurately reflect the styles of Muten Roshi,Tao Pai Pai, and Shen. As Kunzait pointed out, the series really doesn't have as much ad...

Re: Why Majin Buu is the worst villain in DBZ

Basicaly, you're saying that Boo's body is fucked up. I can accept that. Basically, yes. I mean, really. Fat Buu - Evil Buu = Good Buu, then Good Buu + Evil Buu = Super Buu. That, in and of itself, doesn't make a lot of sense. Good and Evil Buu were already merged once, as Fat Buu, so why do they m...

Re: Story Designer Idea

Excellent. I've always thought that this would work incredibly well with Dragonball. The only problem is that if you introduce a story designer, the fans will want a character designer. This could be remedied by making customs only playable in Story designer(and possibly local versus), but I think t...

Dragonball game crossovers you'd like to see

I would like Dragonball vs. Kinnikuman, but for it to be (A) not broken and (B) feasible in-universe, there would have to be either some massive nerfage to the Z-senshi or a huge power-up for the choujin.
