Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

Now you're telling me that a "cishnet"... is essentially just a man saying "I'm a man". Yeah? There's a word for that? Doesn't that describe like 99+% of the human population? Phew. If you think 99+% of the human population is "man," I have some shocking news for you. Allow me introduce you to "wom...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

Not sure what a "cishet" is, sounds like another made up word I'm only choosing this specific example because it's the most recent, but good gravy, for someone so admittedly ignorant on pretty much every term and concept discussed in this thread, you sure somehow manage to already have a ready-made...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

It even more heavily reinforces the toxically masculine idea that it's impossible or worthy of mockery for two men to show platonic affection and love for each other. That the only reason two men would live together and be protective of each other is because "they has the sex, lolz!" It's such an e...

Re: Are Tien and Chiaotzu a romantic couple?

A seemingly simple question is deceptively complex due to the various cultural and sociological baggage contained within. Traditionally, I have always held that they're not, and I still do. Typically, I feel that most of the time (maybe less so nowadays) that it's brought up, it's done in such a sni...

Re: Characters you like but everyone else hates

Bardock. Don't know if "hate" is the right word, though. More like "fed up". Seeing how Bardock is treated differently (not in many different places, it's only in Dragon Ball Online and Dragon Ball Minus/Dragon Ball Super: Broly that he's different, in everything else his personality is coherent; E...

Goku has the answer. Are you surprised? And Cell decides the only way to test his power is to destroy the wor...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Something I find interesting when talking about the subject of film restoration/preservation/remastering is just how much clarification the word "old" needs. That may sound kind of silly. Everyone knows what old means. It's a very simple word. But it can easily have connotations that color the cours...

Gaffer Tape I have a read a thread where you said that you were displeased with Goku's characterization starting from RoF. did you miss Goku's asshole move in BoG? You'll have to link me to said thread. Perhaps I did say that, but it doesn't sound familiar. And given what I've said about Goku's cha...

So is Lance heading into the Freeza Arc for DBDTV now, or will that be after the Cell Arc is completed in normal DBD?

Don't remember the specifics of how these videos are released
Only once The Cell Arc is completed.

Re: Why weren't the NEPs of DBGT included on the Green Bricks?

I'm not buying the idea of "they're redundant because you have the episodes." By that logic, all the recaps should be gone too. In fact, FUNimation's first two DVDs, Ginyu Assault and Ginyu Double Cross, cut those out and fan demand ensured they were reinstated on all future releases. But if spendin...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 12/31/18!)

Once MistareFusion goes over the Namek Anime portion, I really hope they dissect the "production issues" behind Super Saiyan Goku v Freeza. The anime got too close to the manga release date wise, so I think that pretty much explains the slight slight slight disaster of a fight we had. For example, ...

Re: Ch 165: "Help me think up some new clothes!"

There was a contest going on at the time. If you look at the title page for Chapter 163, you can see Goku in his boxers asking for the same thing. I would assume the car is the prize. Huh that's pretty cool! What was the winning entry for it? I'm not entirely sure, but I've seen it speculated that ...

Re: DBZ is still DB

Very very very ignorant question, but would consider Super as still apart of DB? (Excluding the obvious fact that Super itself isn't apart of the 42 volumes). No. Well, I should clarify. It is part of the Dragon Ball franchise, obviously. But it is not Dragon Ball in the context that is being discu...

Re: Pedophilia in Dragon Ball

I seem to recall in BoG at least that the crush was completely one-sided in favor of Trunks. Mai being attracted to a pubescent boy, which, I don't care what the context or level of realism is, is disgusting and criminal. Trunks chasing after her I find completely fine and ripe for comedic potential...

The one thing I disagreed with was your berating of 18's shopping scene. I'm so glad you're enjoying them! As for that, I would not call that berating since I wasn't even actually criticizing it at all. It was a hypocritical joke at my own expense. Coola it will be seven years this January, don't s...
