Thoughts on Ribrianne?

Post by DragonBallFoodie » Sun May 21, 2017 11:39 am

I found her to be an interesting tribute to the magical girl genre. Also she has a really good disguise LOL (instead of just getting a new suit, she becomes fat and changes her skin color).

She also has a cool French name (named after a steak, but that's DB and its food names).

I look forward to seeing her and Vegeta fight.

A generic cute-sy girl that transforms into a dumb looking telitubby inspired thing. Not really digging her at all, she is okay fine whatever.

Her transformed character design looks like shit, I couldn't care less about her right now.

I'd rather have a regular magical girl instead of a parody character, but I've got other shows I can watch for that.
As is I don't really care for either of her designs. Tate's transformation animation was nice though.

I didn't like it, it has mostly something to do with me expecting a regular magic girl to appear..
But I am sure she will grow on me, berrus grew on me and I disliked his design with passion before

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

Yeah, I kind of liked her at first but nor so much when she transformed. And what a transformation! Zarbon's got nothing on her. I have a feeling she will be the top fighter for the second universe. She might do some damage, but it would be beyond ridiculous if she defeated someone like Vegeta.

I'm hoping there's a gag at the tournament between her and Roshi.

Magical. Wonderful. Mesmerizing. Dragon Ball Super is finally doing something nice. That henshin was amazing and I can't wait to see how she performs in the tournament. I want her to kick Vegeta's ass. That would be the best thing ever.

And, I love her voice.

Ribrianne is pretty bae in her "base" form which is why I'm disappointed about why she's the Teletubby fighter in the opening all along. Though the animation for the transformation was fantastic.

She's fine really

Her transformation was pretty cool looking but I don't really have much thoughts about her.

She's a cynical parody of the genre Sailor Moon belongs to, not sure what it's called. Gotta love her for that alone!

I love her. She's cute before the transformation and cute after. It was so unexpected but very much welcome. The transformation was really well done to. She seems like a fun character.

She feels like a Pokémon, but I don't know what Pokémon.
