Re: Who should succeed Masako Nozawa?

Because Goku’s voice is iconic? Why would you want to completely swap it around? It’s just stupid. Because the human being who made that voice is not the human being voicing the character any longer. Nozawa isn’t dying anytime soon hun so that’s not happening. I’d rather Goku still sound like how N...

Re: GT and misogyny

All those men and enbies getting pregnant out here shaking their heads at this shit, too. Shake em up, shake em up, shake em up, shake em! That's cool, I don't expect everyone to agree ( especially folks who live an alternative lifestyle), otherwise this thread wouldn't be 30+ pages. It most certai...

Re: GT and misogyny

That's an extremely bold posture for a man who has been rebuked by two women and an enby who are uncomfortable with the weirdly bio-essentialist posture he has taken.

EDIT: Yeah, I didn't read my post before sending it the first time to catch the weird typos.

Re: Change one thing about a Dragon Ball series and make it better

As with any time ace and aro folks are equated with fictional alien races from a comic book I just want to make it clear to anyone who might be reading this thread that being ace and aro is completely normal and something millions of people across the planet experience. If you do not experience sexu...

Re: GT and misogyny

My mom had me when she was thirty-six and the only defect to come out of that was me being a bitch in some people's eyes. :cool: A woman hits her natural physical and most fertile peak any wear between 20-25, after that her looks naturally start to decline unless she puts in the work to keep them up...

Re: GT and misogyny

Thirty feels old when you miss out on your youth thanks to familial and societal hindrances. It's a huge problem with how capitalism forces the majority to live to work.

Re: GT and misogyny

With Pan and Bra there was probably some lolicons involved in the production that led to the treatment of those two characters being "young girls, but sexualized despite their on-paper ages". Anime and manga tends to do this a lot by dual-coding characters so that they can serve a story/dialogue pur...

Re: GT and misogyny

GT takes place five years after the battle with Uub according to databooks.

Thirty-one year old Videl is 😳 but I am nevertheless disappointed by the continued arbitrary decisions tp disarm women and treat them as plot devices for mens' emotional development. I want better.

I have nothing particularly interesting to say other than I think there are a lot of fun ideas here and everyone is doing good work.

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

Toriyama is writing, so my guess is that now Granola will gain a reason to want to live past those three years but have no knowledge of a way of saving his life. A really grueling torture for him.

Re: GT and misogyny

Media production is a very political industry so I think it's coming to the table too short to ignore those aspects, especially because they do inevitably affect the media we consume. We don't just get a misogynistic view of women in Dragon Ball, we also get a corrupt view of men. There is very litt...

Re: GT and misogyny

like i know it ran in a shounen magazine but at that point, idk. "Why is this comic than ran in a shonen magazine considered a comic that ran in a shonen magazine?" That's LITERALLY what the word means. These are not fan invented labels, they specify the type of magazine that published the manga. A...

It's really easy to not hate women. 😇

I'd love to see the dichotomy of Caulifla and Kale explored further. They're lile two sides of a coin, I feel.

Re: GT and misogyny

Every once in a while I sign onto some forum or subreddit for a thing I like and am shocked to see it kind of a mess with like 70 or 80 percent regular people, eight or nine percent insane weirdos.

Re: GT and misogyny

Remember how shoujo comics editor Kondou Yuu took over as the second editor for Dragon Ball, raising its popularity to new heights for the Saiyan, Namek and the first two-thirds of the Artificial Humans arc? Sounds like an appeal to women if I've ever heard one. ♥
