Re: Why Majin Buu is the worst villain in DBZ

I would say the gags last through the tournament. You know Krillin not having a nose and all. Alright, I'll give you the entire 21st Tournament. 53 chapters. That's still around 10% of the entire series. Majin Boo has action, and so does the entirety of Dragonball after Pilaf. I seperate it on the ...

Re: Why Majin Buu is the worst villain in DBZ

Yes, but in the Buu saga it went back to its roots :mrgreen: . Its roots sucked. Dragonball only became the unstoppable juggernaut AFTER it moved away from its dark gag-manga past. Perhaps you may think so, but coming full circle was the perfect way to avoid becoming saturated with the Artificial H...

Re: Who is the lamest villain?

I don't see where the Boo hate is coming from. He is intentionally dumb and childlike so as to be unique and gag-ish, whereas Broli was obviously the product of an overzealous writer who claimed that people who grunt and only say one word are somehow "cool". The hate going around for the Tokusentai ...

My favorite is probably her first change, the way she looks when she and Yamucha first meet.

Re: What was the last part of Dragon Ball you watched/read?

About a month ago watched the second half GT as well as the Garlic Jr. filler arc as part of my "Grand Tour of Pain" marathon, during which I watched pretty much every bad filler in 'The Shonen Four'(Dragonball, Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach) for the sole purpose of comparing their quality. Needles ...

My new post-christmas avatar is of Robin Mask from Kinnikuman(One of my favorite Shonen, as well as one of my favorite anime/manga in general). Wrestling has never been so badass.

Re: The lack of respect Dragonball and its fans get.

I have encountered this a lot in both my internet and personal social circles. The only things to do are either (A) somehow convince them to watch the show in Japanese from the beginning of DBnotZ, or (B) accept that you will always have different opinions than other people. As for the why of the ha...

Re: Why Majin Buu is the worst villain in DBZ

The way I look at it, Majin Boo was a terrible way to end Dragonball Z, but an excellent way to end Dragonball as a whole. In Boo's arc, Toriyama basically took the series back to it's roots as a gag manga while simultaneously retaining much of the fighting that defined the Piccolo Daimao arc-the Ar...

He probably wouldn't even be able to controll that body. Remember that he coudn't even controll goku at namek? So he would just ditch the body in the end. He wouldn't know how to turn Super Saiyan or anything like that, but he was able to access about a fourth of Goku's power...so even with a fourt...

I'm actually glad that Goten and Trunks have no tails. It helps me justify exactly why they came out of the womb being able to pound Muten Roshi into the ground.

I say that pretty much all of Gohan's hairstyles should be changed so they don't blatantly rip off Yamucha. Also Gyumao should have kept his original outfit. Perhaps if he looked cooler, then Toriyama would elevate him past the level of occasional cameo character.

I'd have to say those little moments in the 22nd Budokai with Ten's inner struggle. During the Z arcs, I like Yamucha vs. Olive and most of the wilderness training.

Yeah, for a second there, I thought they had stolen a Toriyama panel. Gogeta Jr. just gets better all the time.

DragonBall-universe names are the easiest things to come up with, ever. You just pick a theme, pick a word, substitute a letter or rearrange some syllables, and you're good. Wow. I guess it IS easy. It's strange that so many fanfic writers just can't seem to get it right. Every time I see an OC nam...

One thing I've always wanted in one of the fighting games is a Legacy of Goku type story mode. Like, you walk around and fly around and do missions and shit, and every time you run into an enemy it switches to the regular fighting screen. That would be cool, as long as it didn't pull a Naruto and i...

Yeah, I loved that moment. I don't get why movie 4 gets so much flak. Medamacha was awesome! When I was younger I swear I had seen Slug spit out an egg that Medamatcha came out of.

Exactly. It could be like a side-story arc where everyone gets their own plotlines that tie together at the end.

On the flip side, I think Movie 4 has numerous moments that were completely inferior to series counterparts. Movie 4 had the best Super Saiyan. A transformation fueled by rage and power should be a goddamn force of nature, not "so...angry...RAAAAAAHHHH *BOOM!* ... *stands around talking*" Yeah, I l...

I agree with the previous sentiments about the Jump special doing a good job. Not every villain has to be a huge threat to absolutely everyone. You can have more personal antagonists, like someone kidnapping Chaozu, or maybe an archnemesis for Yamucha.
