Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

I often see it stated that Videl's personality in Dragon Ball Super is an issue. I find this weirdly sexist and falls back on toxic masculinity, in which femininity or woman-likeness is considered 'weak'. "She's too feminine!" The issue isn't what Videl does in Dragon Ball Super , it's what she does...

Re: Shintani's style doesn't do it for me

Was it Shintani who did the entirety of the Broly movie? Because the art style seemed to vary a lot in it. I don't like the soft look in Shintani's style, but I like the scene of Vegeta vs Broly which was drawn with more angular and more defined anatomy like in later parts of DBZ, as well as Yuya T...

Re: Shintani's style doesn't do it for me

Takahashi mimicking Yamamuro's old style would never work for animation. The point is for the characters to move--they can't do that if the animators have to draw seventy-three trillion lines and shadows. Takahashi couldn't even supervise an entire episode of television in that style. It's unwieldy ...

Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

It is fiction but there's no internal logic to this. Chichi hasn't fought for years and even then she wasn't that great, and Videl is a step above her father which isn't saying much. Your scenario sounds exactly like you just made that up. It's awful for many reasons, not the least of which is lazy...

Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

If you were fighting the fate of the entire universe would you really put Chichi and Videl on your team? It's fiction, it doesn't exist. You can literally write whatever you want. Gokuu: "Oi Videl, y'seen Gohan 'round? [Exposition]" Videl: "Oh, Gohan-kun's busy with work! I can help, though. Pan-ch...

Re: Why was Broli's strongest form in DBS movie form called Full Power Super Saiyajin?

Super Saiyan Green should be reserved for a normal Super Saiyan form's body type, but whatever works works.

Super Saiyan Full-Power works as a name. It's literally just Super Saiyan Broli at full-power but his hair changed color...from the intensity?

The only notable female characters in DBS I can think of that had stories independent of any male characters were Caulifla and Kale, and all things considered, they weren’t that significant. Ribrien and her crew had scenes and were independent of male characters. Sure, but they were basically just ...

Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

Naruto and Bleach tossed their women a few good fights every once in a while, although Orihime definitely got the short-end of the stick due to how powerful her ability is Kubo stopped giving her fights and just focused on drawing the other multitude of women. Heck, he also gave us a trans woman (G...

Re: Should fans write for official products ?

Yeah, then creators who I love and support can find greater financial stability that way, too. FunSexyDB could release all the books she likes and not have to worry about getting sued, for example. The idea that a judge doesn't laugh IP holders out of the courtroom when they try to sue creators of d...

Re: Should fans write for official products ?

Nobody should be allowed to be the sole owner of something that absorbs so much wealth. I genuinely think it's insane that a comic from 1984--that has rapidly generated billions in profit off the backs of the people. DB isn't education, medicine or food that people are forced to invest in to surviv...

Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

I explained it in the same post. I don't want kids cartoons teaching misogyny (actively or passively) but to be actively writing stories that instills respect for other genders in their stories. Yeah I got that, but which part did you see as misogynistic? The idea that children need women to be res...

Anyway, it's a kids cartoon. It shouldn't be re-enforcing harmful ideologies, it should be normalizing respect between children of all genders Sorry for the late reply.

Re: Should fans write for official products ?

That fundamentally doesn't work on big works; if $10,000,000 was the cutoff, then the movie Infinity War would have gone into public domain in its first weekend, so no movie of that scale would ever be created again. And in general, I think deciding what amount of money is "too much money" is dange...

Re: Should fans write for official products ?

Here's my compromise solution, since I live in the US--which does not offer financial security to every citizen: $10,000,000 (a pretty ridiculous amount far and beyond basic financial security and into the realm of enjoying ridiculous wealth) or twenty years, whichever comes first. If you're an 18 y...

I have zero interest in being the fluffer for millionaires' rights over a 30+ year old franchise that has generated billions. Copyright law is entirely broken and we should be critical of IP holders and punch up often to keep the financially powerful in place.
