Re: Dub-fans, was there an adjustment period for you when Goku started to be portrayed correctly in DBS?

I agree with those who have already said that, generally speaking, any feelings of alienation or an adjustment period has little to do with the dub's mishandling of Goku but simply that Dragon Ball Super's Goku is in many ways a strong departure from how he was portrayed in classic Dragon Ball. It's...

Unfrozen Caveman Broli - Dragon Ball Dissection: The Dangerous Duo! Super Warriors Can't Rest

You know what? I really like this movie. If that is even more insulting after the thrashings I gave to Vegeta, then so be it. But Videl really should be on the poster. Happy New Year!

Wasn’t this stated way back in Z when Kaio is telling Goku about the Saiyans history?
No, it wasn't. He just says they both lived there.

Re: The idea that saiyans are not native the Planer Vegeta/Plant

I'm not sure if it goes back farther than this, but it is part of the story of the 1993 video game Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans, from which the GT Baby story cribs heavily.

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/25/20!)

I personally think it's a wonderful dramatic moment that appears at first to be Goku putting honor (the honor of those slain) before reason. That Vegeta's actions are so beyond the pale that giving him his comeuppance for what he's done is as important as anything else. Surely it's debatable as to w...

The Pointless Saiyan Rematch - Dragon Ball Dissection: The Majin Boo Arc Part 13!

Merry Christmas! Hope you enjoy this video! Yeah, there's a fight here between Goku and Vegeta. It kinda sucks. But it's okay because we get a new villain, and he's pretty cool!

The Failure of 'Majin' Vegeta - Dragon Ball Dissection: The Majin Boo Arc Part 12! Whew. I'm really excited about this one. Clearly ever since I covered Vegeta's last betrayal two years ago, I've been looking forward to getting into what doesn't work for me about this. And it's kind of the culminat...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/11/20!)

I'm loving this YouTube channel. I've had it in my to-watch list for a while now, the over-20-minute length thing was putting it off, but now I can see why it's not less, you really can't have this takes in a 10-minute video. Plus, time flies by. I love Vegeta's Buu arc outfit. Too bad it didn't st...

Martial Arts for Fun and Profit - Dragon Ball Dissection: The Majin Boo Arc Part 11! Dragon Ball Dissection December continues with a look at the cheatingest tournament match ever.

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 11/9/20!)

Did they? Was that in the comic or from a Toriyama interview? It's not stated so directly, but it is something of a necessary extrapolation. If Bibbidi created doppelgängers, and he did so in order to carry out tasks he couldn't do alone, both of which Toriyama says, then he most likely would have ...

Oh hey, one of my comments made it into a DBD video. I may as well just quit graduate school. Clearly, my life has peaked. I was hoping you'd like that. ;-) Seriously though, I really don't like Death Battle. You'd notice it more if you hang out in "who would win" communities as I do, but they're c...

The last installment brought me questions in the comments asking whether or not Bobbidi was actually Bibbidi's son. I was not expecting that, and the rabb...

You say you don't want to turn your brain off but Toriyama says If you could please enjoy that Dragon World without thinking about anything, I’ll be happy.
Yeah, and you could say I've never forgiven him for encouraging such things.

I even had less knowledge going into it than I thought it did. It was definitely a learning experience...
