  1. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    I recently rewatched the new Broly movie and I really do like the new Broly.

    I've seen a bunch of complaints about how he has only like 3 lines in the movie, but I like that his character is more...
  2. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    Jaco mentions that all the strong fighters should be gathered, so in the best case scenario everyone might get something.

    OG73-1 sounds like a good opponent for the androids, too.
  3. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    I like that because the mook copied Piccolo's techniques at Piccolo's own strength and in that situation smart fighting above strong fighting would be the way to victory, we might be getting the...

    Re: Attack on Titan

    Yeah, there's the norse mythology parallel, but the source of the Titan power is probably inspired by a prehistoric creature named Hallucigenia:

  5. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    I've always thought DB to be fairly stakeless and predictable.

    Saw the grandpa Gohan twist coming, saw the Roshi twist and Goku losing coming, I guess Krillin dying the first time was okay, but...
  6. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    I kind of loved this month's chapter.

    Piccolo got a neat little action scene and had a nice moment of quick thinking (the goons that act as an alert for the Big Bad targeting the protagonist...

    Re: Attack on Titan

    Nope. The holocaust imagery is all Eldians. Marley is such an horrifying antagonistic force I don't get how you could get them being the Jewish side here out of this at all.

    Their exgaggeration...

    Re: Attack on Titan

    Some 5-6 years ago Isayama tweeted apologism about what Japan did to Korea, unable to see the similarity with what the Nazis did in Europe. He also modeled Pixis after a war criminal. Nothing else...
  9. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    Ultra Instinct is my favorite form because of the idea behind it. All the others are just simple power ups.

    Design-wise I'd give it to SSG and like Ultra Instinct, I think it has a interesting...
  10. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    Yeah, I said that's basically why I didn't like Roshi's moment - the story just went too far with it, even if I liked the principle of it, I thought it was too much of a stretch to feel natural.

  11. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    As far as the newest chapter goes, yeah, I feel like the Buu thing is really old at this point.

    I really liked the Ultra Instinct tease, even if I feel like the manga didn't do as good as a job...
  12. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    As a kid he didn't seem to care much the planet was destroyed, at least not in the new Broly movie.

    But in general, I think it's a sort of selective caring because of the whole higher class...
  13. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    That's why the whole idea of people wanting him to finally get a win against Freeza that I see around has been wierd to me.

    His idea of wanting revenge has always been sort of selfish and one...
  14. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    The reason why I like Moro is mostly because of the principles behind how he fights. He's not actually very strong, just uses abilities and trickery to his advantage. It's like if you combined Gero...
  15. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    I'm enjoying this new Super manga arc a bunch.

    The story actually allows moments to breathe, it actually has a few pretty cool character moments and goat demon has a very cool story going on as a...

    Re: Attack on Titan

    Yes, this is what I'm saying, too, but I was talking about the Jewish similarity here and how I think the story is mainly going for that and not other nations/races.

    OP actually has the same...

    The imagery is a little too specific for me for it to be anything else but a Jewish parallel and the second comparison down the list for me would be the Middle East because Paradis is being attacked...

    Re: Attack on Titan

    Ah, so it's just a reading, not Isayama saying anything awful again?

    That's the only thing I've seen on this topic, too, but I feel like the Star of David-like symbol on the armbands kind of is as...

    Another aspect of this: I do think there are elements to criticize how the oppressed race and racism is handled in the story.

    For all the story does right, the oppressed race should never be...

    Re: Attack on Titan

    The Isayama "hating the Jewish" (and in association the story being imperialist and nationalist) claim comes from Isayama's insensitive and racist tweet about Korea that surfaced 5 or so years ago,...

    At this point Rial is getting a bunch of death threats.

    As a final note on my part: I'm 99% sure he did stuff and it could be worse than we think it is judging by all the various stories.

  22. Re: Funimation DVD Discussion IV (Please Check First Post for FAQ)

    I'm leaning towards pretty strongly believing it all. I wish the opposition was all this reasonable as you, though: most of it just seems to be throwing the word SJW around, instantly assuming the...
  23. Re: Funimation DVD Discussion IV (Please Check First Post for FAQ)

    Yeah, I'm of the mind that people are innocent until proven guilty, too, of course. It's sadly just more common to dismiss the victims rather than treat both sides equally.
    Not believing victims is...
  24. Re: Funimation DVD Discussion IV (Please Check First Post for FAQ)

    Yeah, had that in mind - not only did he admit to stuff which says he did it, but, he did so in a way that was not very genuine because it was not directly addressed to the victims, the actual people...
  25. Re: Funimation DVD Discussion IV (Please Check First Post for FAQ)

    I think what broke the straw on the camel's back for me was that he's complicit in knowing someone was raped and rubbed it in by interacting with that person.

    He has some... questionable ideas...

    I've heard horror stories about him for a decade+ now (since I became more active as a anime fan).

    The most awful thing about this is the people instantly discrediting the victims. Sexual...

    He's like a still actually threatening Pilaf? Idk. DB hasn't done something like this. When shounen stuff makes previous villains more comedic it usually removes any of their competency, but Freeza...
  28. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    Yeah, I really liked that. King Vegeta even mentions it. It's like a self-fulfilling prophecy. King Vegeta's treatment of Paragus caused it. He could've chosen to kill them, but instead chose to "put...
  29. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    Right?!

    The characterization is so good in this, especially for a movie. Most of the movies, especially have really bland characterization beyond the main cast. Sometimes even the main cast isn't...
