Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

Making a good story with him as the central character? Not plot device, but character? Can only have him smash so many people before it just becomes tedious. Unless you mean inserting a personality that is essentially Vegeta when he was redeeming himself. What I mean is that rewriting Broly with ju...

Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

So, trying to get more out characterizing Broly is not easy right now, with him as a central character. I would have to disagree with this. I find writing a decent version of Broly relatively simple... Making a good story with him as the central character? Not plot device, but character? Can only h...

Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

I've been thinking about writing a story about an alternate history where Broly is picked up by Vegeta, Nappa, and Raditz shortly after Planet Vegeta's destruction. I would have a prologue or a chapter or two detailing how it happened and everything else, and then start right where the Saiyan Arc s...

Re: Really specific Time machine question

A character leaves the present and travels to the future. Situation 1: In the future, they discover that after they left the present they were never seen again. - If they die before returning or simply live on in the future; no paradox is created. A single timeline. - If they return to the present t...

Re: What would Cell looks like if he achieved a SSJ4 kind of transformation ?

There are so many things to consider with this, so I understand the difficulty you would have with it. Personally, after mulling over it for far too long, I came to the following conclusion: - His "crown" would fold back over his head (think somewhere between Hit's head and Freeza's) - His tail woul...

Re: "Dragon Ball: El manga legendario" Translation (09/50)

From the lack of participation in this thread I would say it is not unreasonable to asume that not many people are interested on it. And I don't blame you; as I said in the first message, most of the content is far from interesting. Nevertheless, I still find Toriyama's section pretty interesting, ...

Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

Was it ever fully explained how the process of Kami or Dendi becoming the guardian of the Earth works? It was, God dies, and Dende was appointed as the new God. There's really nothing more to it. Yes, but was any of the requirements more spelled out? All I can remember was; Be Namekian, Don't be a ...

Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

Anyone else have ideas that stretch the accepted "cannon" of Dragonball pretty far? I'm going back and forth on the possibility of Cell attaining a sort of bastardized Oozaru form As long as you can justify it cleanly, you can do basically anything. ...and I'd hope Cell's Oozaru would be more like ...

Re: 2 more levels to ssj4 theory

SSJ4 is, as you said, completely different to SSJ.

...so why would it follow a similar path?

Also, you have to go through Golden Oozaru to achieve it, so wouldn't it count as a "level 2" transformation by your standards?

Tarble is referring to First Form Freeza... as it is the only one he could know... while Goku would be thinking of Final Form Freeza when commenting on the boys.

Re: Has One Piece surpassed Dragon Ball or is DB still king?

I'm not grasping at anything, just noting what needs to be taken into account... because it's not as clean cut as simply comparing sales, that's all. When the question is which of the two has sold more taking into consideration the number of volumes (which was what I was responding to), it really i...

Re: Has One Piece surpassed Dragon Ball or is DB still king?

I have no idea what you are trying to say. There was no significant difference in how they sold the magazine and the volumes. The internet makes a huge difference in marketing and distribution. Less reliance on "snail mail". Increased audience, and their accessibility. And that's not taking into ac...

Re: Has One Piece surpassed Dragon Ball or is DB still king?

Back in the 80's/90's, shifting large numbers of manga was vastly different and more difficult than it is today. With the age we live in, it's not surprising that something as popular as One Piece has outsold DB. I have no idea what you are trying to say. There was no significant difference in how ...

Re: Has One Piece surpassed Dragon Ball or is DB still king?

Then why is the manga the preferred way of viewing One Piece? And One Piece shares a lot more actors with Dragon Ball then just Mayumi Tanaka. Okay buttercup, lets be real here, the One piece manga is actually the preferred way of consuming the series. No Luffy voiced by krillin, or Yajirobe here. ...

Re: Has One Piece surpassed Dragon Ball or is DB still king?

I think it's very important to keep in mind that although One Piece has outsold Dragon Ball, it also has more chapters. It's not so cut and dry. Yeah, almost 350 more chapters at that. If OP ended around the ~500-600 range, things might be different. 2005, 9th year - 112 Million copies printed, 40 ...
