Re: Vic Mignogna

The problem is that Vic's earned a reputation for this sort of thing over a number of years because fans and con staff shared their stories but the companies who employed him did nothing. I honestly believe that the reason Funimation finally took action was because Vic's coworkers spoke up this time.

Re: Vic Mignogna

I get it. I honestly do. I will say, though, that it's really, really hard to not want someone's head when you've been a victim of the person's sexual misconduct. Especially when like a thousand people still celebrate the man and also repeatedly demand proof that's obviously unobtainable (like I wea...

Re: Kameha-con 2018!!

I gave my very first panel at this con. I did not expect to give it to a room FULL of people. It was way more rad than I would have ever expected. I'm really hoping to see even more fellow fans next year!

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

I double dipped on FighterZ. I have a standard physical copy on preorder with Amazon and I preordered the Ultimate Edition digital copy from the PlayStation Store. Spent nine hours streaming the Early Access Day of the Beta. :lol: :oops:

Re: Do you agree that it's silly to hate something because it has a cringy and obsessive fandom?

There are a few things I'm into where I'm either very selective about what parts of the community I interact with or I just don't get involved in their fan communities at all. Part of this is due to how the community is known to act. The other is because I've been so heavily invested in Dragon Ball ...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

Companies like Funimation don't just get to decide, "Hey! We should just start selling this [product/service] in [different country]," and then just get to do it. They have to pay a lot of money just to license the product in the US. Then, in the case of Dragon Ball, someone else comes along and pay...

Re: Pirating Dragon Ball (discussion)

I know that Funimation wanted Dragon Ball Super from the moment they learned about it. They were also totally on board to simulcast the series from the beginning the way they are now. While I was paying for the same anime streaming services back then as I am now (so the money isn't really different ...

Re: What If: Toriyama Retired?

I mean, he kinda did retire back in 1995 or so. He didn't contribute much toward anything that came out after that all the way up until he exercised some creative control over Battle of Gods. During those years, I mostly just enjoyed what already existed and read his occasional one-shots that came u...

Re: Could you have tolerated Linda Young in Kai onward?

Nowadays, I can't imagine anyone but Chris Ayers playing Freeza. However, at the time the Kai dub was announced, I had gotten used to Linda Young as Freeza. So, had the show continued on with Linda Young, I wouldn't have lost sleep over it but nowadays I'm spoiled with Ayers in the role.

Re: Do you like SSJ3 being a failed transformation?

Super Saiyan 3 is my least favorite transformation from Toriyama's original work. It just goes waaaaaaay overboard on the hair. That said, the whole concept of SS3 is taking things waaaaaaay overboard so it's look fits perfectly with how it plays out in the story! I probably would've been more sad a...

Re: Biggest retcon in DragonBall?

Would Toriyama coming up with his own explanation for how things went down be a retcon? I'm thinking of History of Bardock and Dragon Ball Minus specifically. You could probably throw that one thing where he went back in time , too. I'm sure you guys have thought of much bigger things, but Bardock's...

Re: Does Goku care about Goten at all?

I think the example most point to is Trunks when it comes to him and Goten's appearance in Super. Trunks is 14 right now in Super given his AGE 766 birthdate and that Super is currently in AGE 780.

Re: Does Goku care about Goten at all?

Gokû cares about Goten. Toriyama, Toei, and Shueisha don't; not all that much anyway. At least that's the conclusion I'm getting from new DB material as of late. Goten (and Trunks) should both be looking noticeably older given how much time has passed and they couldn't even be bothered to redesign ...

Re: When did hating Broly become the norm?

I think my dislike for Broly is more just my being annoyed by Broly's biggest fans. They're the fans that think that Broly needs to be in everything. They're the fans that think that Broly needs to be compared to every other martial artist in Dragon Ball and that, within those comparisons, he's alwa...

Re: Thoughts on Super Saiyan Hair becoming more refined as the series progressed?

I think the mid-Cell arc has the best looking Super Saiyan hair. It's got a bit of detail here and there, but it isn't made up of a bunch of individual spikes like the modern day Super Saiyan.
