Re: How do you feel about Frieza after the tournament of power

How different? like real villains like goku black and Beerus,hit,and Jiren aren't actually villains just neutral beings. Like from universe 11 the killer of jiren's parents? Like who is your favorite villain and how many different villains? Like they would be cool or they would suck? Also the super...

Re: How do you feel about Frieza after the tournament of power

For those of you who are fond of Freeza, I'm glad that you get to see more of him. I personally have just never found him interesting. I didn't change my mind with Resurrection F and while the TOP did have a few interesting plot points, which were not utilized very well in my opinion, it didn't real...

Re: How would you change your least favourite saga?

Well, it’s not my least favorite saga but even I admit that there are things that don’t add up in the Cell Saga. Truthfully, the main thing I would change is the build up the Cell Games. -An event happens in the Room of Space and Time where Gohan is on the edge of SSJ2. Being pushed by his father an...

Re: Thoughts on Colleen Clinkenbeard?

I was not a fan of Clickenbeard when I first heard her Gohan, mainly because it was very different from Nadolny. Since then, I’ve grown accustomed to it and I do feel she does a good job...but I still prefer Nadolny. I really can’t pinpoint why but Clickenbeard’s voice just doesn’t connect with me a...

Re: I think it's time to admit Gohan is a terrible character

A horrible character? No. A horribly utilized character? Yes. The main problem, which a lot of people here have touched on, is that the writers can’t decide what to do with him. When he’s first introduced, we’re shown his personality varies immensely from his father’s but once Piccolo thrusts him in...

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

I wouldn’t say so much it bothers me as much as I just don’t find it funny. It’s played comedically rather than dramatically and since the characters don’t make a big deal out of it, we’re expected to act similarly. I’ve just never been a fan of that kind of humor, which is one reason the original D...

Re: Something I noticed in the "Piccolo Is Gohan's real dad" fanbase

The only sticking point I have with Goku's fatherhood is that he never used Kaio to communicate with anyone during the seven years between the Cell and Buu arcs. That's a really gross level of completely unnecessary familial neglect. If I sweep that under the rug as just being a somewhat awkwardly ...

I can't find the artist of this piece to save my life but I really think it should be shared, regardless of personal feelings on the couple of Goku and ChiChi, simply because of how awesome this was done.

That’s some nice artwork! I love the idea of characters days/weeks. It gives me some inspiration for DBZ fan fiction which I haven’t had in about 7 years. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Dragonball Z Kai Dub vs Dragonball Z Dub: The Final Verdict (I hope)

One theme of Falcouner's that I truly miss in both the Kai version and the Z version with the original Japanese score is the "Time Chamber" theme. I really adore that composition and it really seems to give those scenes "other worldly/mystical" feel. Especially when Goku and Gohan are training, I lo...

Re: Things that grind your gears

Honestly, the phrase “it’s filler, it doesn’t count” really irritates me. If I’m talking about the anime, I tend to consider everything that appears in that media. If I’m just considering the manga, I only count the manga, etc. My arguments/thoughts on the anime vs another media might change but so ...

Re: Something I noticed in the "Piccolo Is Gohan's real dad" fanbase

Oh, I get it. But Piccolo hasn't actually done anything for Gohan past the Saiyan arc. Anyone can just stand on the sidelines and comment, but Goku has spent a significant amount of time with Gohan. Piccolo also trained with them, but he was more on the outside and at the end of the day, Goku chose...

Re: Favourite Character introduced in the Original Dragon Ball

Leaving out Goku, the characters introduced in the first “saga” of Dragonball I have always had a fondness for: Bulma, Yamcha, Puar, Oolong. I would have to add in Krillin as well. He remains a character that I truly care about way into the later seasons. Bulma’s development is fun to watch and I re...

Re: Who are your favourite DBS characters?

Aside from my complaints about Super, I do have to say I have really enjoyed Beerus and Whis. They are two characters that I truly didn’t like much in the movies, particularly Beerus. Super has given them ample time to expand and flesh out their personalities and I love their interactions with the o...

It actually made me appreciate ssj2 more. I’ll agree with this as well. I’ve never been a huge fan of SSJ3. It’s an interesting look and I am appreciative of the first time we see the transformation being pretty epic but it just doesn’t seem to be an improvement over SSJ2. If anything, aside from t...

Re: Is Goku a hero in Super?

Well, honestly, that depends on what kind of hero you’re talking about. I think when people hear the word “hero” they automatically jump to the Classical Hero but there’s a bunch of different types of heroes—Byronic, Romantic, Anti-Hero, Classical, Folk, etc and that’s just within Western literature...

Re: Bra's Potential 2.0

Didn't find anything that proves that she might not be a fighter or that blatantly says she is not a fighter. I’m inclined to agree here. In Super, all we see of Bra is her as newborn so her personality is still being formed and developed. In EoZ, she’s watching the tournament and wearing a dress. ...

Re: Something I noticed in the "Piccolo Is Gohan's real dad" fanbase

I have never understood the meme of Goku being a bad father. While he's far from perfect, I'd say that he has got the most vital aspects of fatherhood down in that he obviously loves and cares for his kids. One thing that I think a lot of people overlook too is that Goku was there from birth until G...
