Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

So you're saying that Dragon Ball is a franchise that does cater and should cater exclusively to straight cis people? I don’t think it belongs (necessarily) in Dragon Ball. I don’t see how this series, of all things, “caters exclusively to straight cis people”... or to much of anyone for that matte...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

You could argue the same for Piccolo. Why would anyone trust him other than Gohan during the Saiyan Arc? As far as the vast majority of the cast goes Piccolo is still a villain by the time the Saiyans arrive. Not really. Let's compare the two during the same time period. By the time Nappa and Veget...

No I don’t see why people have this idea that a show like dragon ball needs to cater to x,y or z

Go find some other show for that or make your own.

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 7/1/19!)

While I can see why you're not particularly moved about the 16 sutff, one thing that surprised me was that you didn't bing up Mr. Satan's roll in getting the head there. It is something I plan to bring up later. This script was so tightly focused on Gohan it did not flow at all to shift gears to Mr...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

We jiren also had so what’s the issue. I have no idea what this means. I think he meant to say "Which Jiren also had," as in, Geran also has presence. However, if that is what he's saying, I have to vehemently disagree. I mean, it's not impossible to make inscrutable foes interesting. Drago's "If h...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

jiren is like ivan drago really but it is story a bit old with the current time but if it fulfills its function I'm afraid I can't quite see that comparison. While they are both rather empty shells, at least Ivan Drago is actually intimidating. At least Ivan Drago, in killing Apollo, actually does ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Bland I get with jiren but boring nah the dude felt like an actual threat the crew for the role he played at. See, Geran never even felt terribly threatening to me. The show seemed to think that just the fact that he existed was threatening. However, the situation itself never makes good on that. H...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I'd say the hatred towards Jiren is far more justified than the Saiyan girls. And this is coming from someone who genuinely likes Jiren. Nah not really I get not liking the dude and all but the hatred for the dude is exaggerated at times and screams of pettiness every time I see a thread bitching a...

One question concerning your line about Cell learning about Goku''s teleporting ability at the tournament. I could have sworn that he first mentions it while in his second form, when Goku rescues Tenshinhan and Piccolo. Granted, my main experience with this arc comes from the Legacy of Goku game, s...

The Dragon Ball Dissection episode on Movie 8 will come out after Part 16.

In case you're ever wondering when any movie is going to be covered, don't forget that you're currently on a website that will tell you exactly when every movie comes out. :P

Mr. Satan and a reporter team up to be the designated comic relief. Then Goku and Cell fight in a tournament that pretty much stops being a tournament after the first few minutes.

Re: How many series exist for you?

"Exist" can be a rather vague descriptor. Objectively speaking, they all exist. I know this is a more subjective question, but even then, is it asking what you choose to watch, what you believe is "canon," what you personally choose to ignore, what you like, which Toei-induced arbitrary divisions yo...

Re: DB's ending

Put me firmly in the "Dragon Ball should have ended when it ended" camp as well, and for all of the above reasons. My pet cause is that it has lost all sense of progression. It plays it safe. Time stands still. Everything more or less reverts to the status quo, which is really disheartening because ...
