Re: Sexual Assault: Fiction and Reality

I'll say the same thing I always say when these threads come up: Kame-sennin's central gag is one of my least favorite elements of the series, and stands out as a significant blemish excusable only through the filter of its era (which doesn't mean it was ever okay; just that it represents keeping in...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

I'll apologize for being flippant with my response if there's more context to it, but considering how riled up the fanbase can get with the smallest hints of news, especially involving material many members can't read, surely there was a better way to lay out a case than just saying "confirmed" with...

Re: Finding the designer of Towa, and an amusing anecdote about Toriyama and Goten

Also, interesting to find out he didn't design Towa. Makes sense, she doesn't seem like his "type" of female character. I've always thought this as well. She's a little out of place. I thought maybe he was just hamming it up a little as a one-off, but it made so much sense to me to find out she was...

Finding the designer of Towa, and an amusing anecdote about Toriyama and Goten

A bit of a new discovery (for English-speaking fans) from the Twittersphere today, thanks to Kanzenshuu mod TheDevilsCorpse pointing my way to some year+-old tweets. If you've dipped your feet into any of the increasingly original-story-driven DB video games in recent history, or related media like ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Why the fusion resulted in Gogeta and not Vegetto? Just because it wasn't with the Potara earrings? Yep. This is the first time we've ever gotten confirmation within the main, Toriyama-helmed series itself (rather than just extrapolating from Movie 12 and the manga, and later getting the same impli...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

As someone who tweet a fan translation of Vegeta's lines during leaks, I'll stand fully behind the way Caleb Cook wrote it for this release. Vegeta's line is "ナメック星人には迷惑をかけた過去があってな これ以上数を減らすわけには行けない." Which Cook translated as "I have a troubled history with these Namekians. I did them untold harm. S...

Re: "SDBH: World Mission" Official Discussion Thread

Do we know if the avatar characters like Beat etc will have their transformations? Considering the game also ports over the first ten sets of Super Dragon Ball Heroes and its related arcade campaigns, there's a zero-percent chance the avatars won't all have their full transformation lines. The most...

Re: "(Super) Dragon Ball Heroes" Official Discussion Thread

One more question for Heroes historians: I see it cited on the DB Wiki that the "Demigra Assault arc" (or "Demon God Demigra Assault arc") takes place after Goku and Vegeta Xenos investigation of the Prison Planet, which--sure--seems reasonable, but was this ever actually cited anywhere? Even the 8t...

Re: "SDBH: World Mission" Official Discussion Thread

What the heck is a "blank card"? Your guess is as good as mine. It's not featured in UMX, so it might be something new for World Mission. A card that can be turned into another one? Idk. So, basically... We got companion quests? Great, now I'm gonna spend a fortune grinding Companion Gifts to raise...

Re: "SDBH: World Mission" Official Discussion Thread

Hmm, that's weird. I remember seeing gameplay videos of UMX where people were using custom cards during regular battles. Story Mode lets you equip characters with accessories that can mix and match abilities, so that's probably what you're thinking of. It's one of the things that makes Story Mode e...

And everyone involved is interested in keeping things clearly separated and identified, such that video-game continuities don't bleed into manga and anime ones, etc. Huh...

Re: Funimation and swearing

I'm personally of the opinion that they overdo it. Just as it's unnatural to write out all instances of swearing (real people are going to say "hell" and even more colorful things when they're in a pinch), it's equally unnatural to write in as many "damns" and "bastards" as Funimation does.
