Re: Your ideal Dragon Ball sequel.

How does this apply to DB exactly ? everyone involved with the franchise from its original creator to the multiple companies that brought it to life still exist. Dragon Ball is thirty-plus years old and has been used to amass massive swaths of money (re: power) within its industry with the mass of ...

Capitalism sucks, y'all. People making their 'creative decisions' for the sake of the greed or financial insecurity. That sucks and should be rectified.

Tomioka Atsuhiro has written Satoshi from Pokemon since 1997. He could write Gokuu just as long.

Re: Does there have to be one lead writer for the different media of Super?

I'd like Tomioka Atsuhiro to be the lead on the TV series. Toriyama writing the movies only is jeeps him from being too burned out.

Re: Your ideal Dragon Ball sequel.

I want to take pages from Pocket Monster: Sun & Moon and Pocket Monster (2019). Easy, simple designs that are great for character animation combined with episodic slice-of-life stories that put the Dragon Ball characters in situations that Toriyama Akira alone would not normally be able to do himsel...

Why is it sad? She's an adult [fictional] character. Let her do as she pleases.
Tell yourself that. Shes a drawing. I can't "ler her do as she pleases" because she's not real. I'm not sure what your point was.
Read for first sentence. It doesn't make any sense.

Re: Bulma had a romantic relationship with Yamcha and Vegeta at the same time?

The idea of Bulma cheating on Yamcha with the guy who indirectly caused his death, while also telling her son that he was the one who cheated on her, would make her seem pretty damn despicable. It's not out of character for her sadly. Her eyes were always wandering even while she was with Yamcha. S...

Pretty sure Blooma just wasn't all the in to Yamcha anymore, broke up with him, then hate-fucked Vegeta to process the stress of the break-up.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Shitting bricks about character ages won't do any good if the storylines aren't good. I'm really hoping the next series pulls a GeGeGe no Kitarou (2018) and comes up with episodic scripts that they can stockpile for between story arcs. I want to see the characters do more than fight four fuckin' ene...

I imagine Blooma only slept with Vegeta after a fight with Yamcha. That or they were in a threesome while Oolong filmed from a closet. Flip a coin.

I'm about seven years behind on this comic but just reading the last few pages posted here and I have to wonder if Salagir isn't just brilliantly writing a form of pornography and parody. It's just so perverse.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

My opinion is that Broli: Super is husband material and I want to destroy my holes. Okay, a different serious answer: he's a fun breath of fresh air and contrasts with Gokuu and Vegeta well. There's a lot of room for character development and he'd be wasted on just making only more of the same kind ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

The Earthling fights are definitely shallow. What is the arc about? Gokuu getting one step closer to Migatte no Goku'i and Vegeta atoning for his sins against the Namekians. Those two can be accomplished because they have more clear goals. The stuff with the Earthlings just drags. Personally, I woul...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

Relegating the comicalization to V-JUMP feels like a clear sign that the animation side of the franchise is the 'main product'. Even now, the franchise doesn't feel focused or geared towards the comic as the lead. There doesn't really feel like a main, guiding force to the franchise right now. The v...

Re: A couple or one sided romance?

We're at five pages of back and forth "THEY'RE NOT GAY STOP MENTIONING THE GAYS OH GOD" and "LOL, they're so gay trust me I'm a professional". It's very clear to me that cishet fans feel threatened by the queer theorizing of Dragon Ball. I'm really sorry someone else's fun is a problem for you.

Re: A couple or one sided romance?

The romantic tension between Tenshinhan and Chaozu is so thick that one can cut it with a knife. The pain and torture they felt during the battle with Nappa is the greatest culmination of their love.

It's okay to read cartoon characters as queer. Gay is good.

Besides, even if it they introduced a trans or non-binary character, what exactly would be the point of it? Dragon Ball is not the kind of series where the characters give a damn about the sexual orientation or gender identification of other characters. In-universe nobody cares if Tenshinan is a vi...
