Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I'm not really fond of DBS episode 69 :yawn: I always thought this was a very divisive episode. It seems like people either hated it or they loved it. I personally didn't like it much at all either. Personally, I think it's because I just am not a huge fan of Dr. Slump. I skipped over the episodes ...

Re: Do you still think Gohan should've been the main character?

Iwould be genuinely curious to know what angle you would've preferred Toriyama take with Gohan after the Cell Games. Since you asked.... Honestly, I think the way Gohan is presented in Movie 9 is one of my favorites. He’s shown still having an interest in martial arts; ChiChi is accepting of it and...

Re: Do you still think Gohan should've been the main character?

Granted, I'm a Gohan fan and I still don't necessarily agree with the angle the series took him after the Cell Games but in general, I always thought Goku eventually passing the torch made sense. Heck, when I first saw Dragonball, that was the impression I got as early as the Namek saga. We're seein...

Re: I love the Funimation Dub pre-Kai

I personally love the pre-Kai dub. I also love the Japanese original. I also love the Kai dub. I just have different reasons why I love them. I will admit to being partial to the pre-Kai dub though. It was the first one I was exposed to and honestly, I do prefer some of the old voices, particularly ...

Re: The Dragon Ball Films: A Personal Assessment

I agree with a lot that you mentioned here. First one I saw was DBZ MOVIE 1 and while, yeah, it can’t exactly fit into the canon, I do love it as a potential alternative timeline start to the Saiyan saga. The choreography is excellent and it was great to see Goku using the Power Pole again! I think ...

Re: Could Super Saiyan 4 make a return?

Do I think it will? No, not really but I personally would be fine if it did, even if they tweaked it some (the color seems to be the biggest complaint I see.) Honestly, I thought it would work if SSJ4 was the “form no one else has seen” that Gohan teased when fighting Goku, given Gohan was the only ...

Re: Does the Garlic Jr. arc still get lots of hate?

But doesn't the idea of a good idea badly executed sound like a lot of stories? I don't know why this would upset so many people in this case. I think it’s that, combined with all the other factors, at least from my experience. I’ve also heard people say they hate it because there’s no Goku or Vege...

Re: Does the Garlic Jr. arc still get lots of hate?

I’ve always really liked this filler because you saw a lot of interaction between Gohan, Krillin and Piccolo. Plus, it kind of served as an in-between for Gohan’s character from the end of Namek to the beginning of the Trunks saga. As many have mentioned, it was nice to defeat an enemy without Goku....

Re: Could The Human Characters Develop A "Super Human/Super Human God" Transformation Like Yamoshi Did For The Saiyans?

I always felt the humans should have some ability exclusive to them that had to do with ki. Goku and the others’ ability to sense and detect ki without the aid of technology is something Vegeta comments on until he learns it. If that’s something humans learn easily then I would think some kind of ki...

Re: What do you think of the manga's ending?

I’ve never been a fan of the manga ending. I’m not a fan of Uub, mainly because I don’t find him interesting and I think his role could have been filled by a character we knew already. I do like the party filler episode (and I’d be totally fine with that) but honestly, if they wanted to stick with t...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

1. Z Episode 288/Kai Episode 165, despite being filler, is one of my favorite episodes, and is a far better conclusion to DBZ/Kai than the actual ending with Uub. I agree with this 100%! Honestly, I usually stop the series here. I don’t hate the remaining episodes but I don’t think they wrapped thi...

Re: Why do so many Z fans refuse to watch the original Dragon Ball?

I've never met anyone that refused to watch the original Dragonball. I've met a lot of people who have seen it and simply find Z more intriguing, for lots of different reasons. I've heard that they prefer more of the sci-fi action, they like the characters introduced in Z (Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan etc....

Re: Your Favorite Scene in the Franchise

That...is really hard actually. I think I can narrow it down to a few though: Goku killing King Piccolo by tearing right through him. Either dub though I’m more familiar with FUNimation English but I like Japanese too. The entire saga did a really good job building up to this moment. Gohan returning...

Re: What I think made the Future Trunks arc ending bad

On the one hand, I do agree that Future Trunks was much happier/accepting than he should have been, given the situation. He’d just lost everything and despite all his attempts to get stronger, he still lost. That’s a major blow. On the other hand, though, if we’re being realistic here, every single ...

Re: Who is the best Dad in Dragon Ball?

Most likely Kuririn and Gohan if we’re discussing best overall at their fatherly duties. Those two seem the most grounded and affectionate. Vegeta deserves a “most improved” award. He’s not what I’d call a “good” father but he’s loads better than where he started out so he gets a bit of a learning c...

Re: What is your favorite DB Movie ending theme?

Definitely Movie 9’s Ginga wo Koete https://youtu.be/SaCETwWz9dE I love the beat and Movie 9 is one of my favorites anyway. It’s on my iPhone playlist for when I work out. Actually, a lot of these themes are, come to think about it.

Re: Is It Time For A Redub? Movies and Specials

Personally the movies are some of my favorite pieces of media. I’m one of those people who actually like some of the dubs, for various reasons, even if they aren’t accurate. Movie 3’s dub is horribly inaccurate and yet I love watching it. Having said that though, I really wouldn’t mind a redub of th...

Re: What type of new villains in future dragon ball series

DB has a few antagonists over the years whose powers aren't limited to sheer brute strength. Off the top of my head - The 2 Star Dragon's toxic powers sap people of their strength, Guldo's time freeze powers require strategy to beat, and Ginyu's body switch was very effective. You’re right and I li...

Re: What type of new villains in future dragon ball series

I’ve always loved the idea of a manipulative and cunning villain. Dragonball definitely has a track record of “new bad guy, new power up” and while I do enjoy those antagonists, I’d love to see a villain who isn’t necessarily battle strong but through other means is a threat. The concept of turning ...

I doubt that last part though this is what the franchise is called dragon ball and also unless zalama is involved I don't see whis dying along with the other gods and Angels.
