Honestly, the way Hail Zeon talks, I wonder how he can watched Dragon Ball period since the stuff he often wails on Super about is stuff that happens all the time in the franchise. In fact, I bet he got into the series as a kid or a teenager and while acknowledging the flaws of the series, he's more willing to forgive them, while his more critical adult self won't let things go.nickzambuto wrote:I used to hate him. He was such a macho try-hard bordering on narcissism. There's something... very unlikeable about a person informing the audience about how amazingly good looking they and how many girls they get while they're making a YouTube video reviewing anime.ryou766 wrote:Yeah, about Geekdom, there's something about his personality that I don't like. I always cringe when he says the Japanese titles in his videos. It's like, "oh, shut up and get to the review already please.."
I think he's toned the bragging down though, and when I realized how very interesting and thoughtful his discussion actually is, I was able to get over it.
Hail Zeon is interesting and thoughtful to, but just so horrendously negative that I wonder why he's even wasting so much time talking about Dragon Ball so much when he doesn't even seem to like it.
Overall, there seems to be a disconnect with Dragon Ball Youtubers and the fandom with the ending the Future Trunks Saga. Most of the Youtubers hated the ending so much that it ruined the entire story arc for them and some wondering if they're going to keep watching Super, and wondering if Super can damaged the franchise since the 'best' saga in Super turned out this badly or is nowhere near as good as the stuff that came before.
While, from the other forums I have visited, the ending was shocking, but I have seen people loving it because it was so surprising, dark, and dealt with the heroes having a real defeat that the Dragon Balls can't fix. In fact, people seem to look more favorably on this last episode compared to Episode 66, which was a more typical Dragon Ball ending. I am not sure why this disconnect happened, but it's interesting to watch.
