At least the future trunks SSJ3 looked... kinda cool, even if it was uninspired and made no kind of sense.

You are entitled to your opinion Tiki but a lack of eyebrows isn't a flaw in everyones eyes.

Personally it looked cool when Goku first revealed it, as the 'ultimate' form of super saiyan the longer haired prehistoric-look suited it.

Huh. I never really picked up on that. That' actually pretty neat.

To be fair, she was the one who pursued Goku. He thought she was offering food and when she finally came after him to make good on the promise, he had already forgotten. Besides, he actually did a pretty good job of settling down and only started being so absent because he was too busy being dead. Twice.

Technically...Toriyama didn't do much with GT...right? I'm under the impression that he wasn't really involved.

Also, supposedly Pan never experienced huge loss or the rush of rage/emotion that she would have needed to break the Super Saiyan barrier. I haven't seen much of GT, any cred to that theory?
>> No. 73689
Toriyama not being able to draw something is a weakness of his repetitive style and not something you should leap to the defense of.

A number of fan's have drawn decent looking super females, and there's nothing wrong with the ones we see in stuff like the online game or that card-machine game.

I never liked how super saiyans look dudes I'm sorry

I dont even know why i made that comment i dont even like pan

what was the surge of rage/emotion that goten and trunks experienced, though
>> No. 73712
Ah no, it's another language, that's why different dub.
>> No. 73717
He did character designs and a few pieces of concept art that the first batch of stories were based off of.

When did he say that's the reason he never drew a female super saiyan? I just figured he never drew one because the only female Saiyan we saw was Pan and he only wrote her for 3-4 chapters.

>there's nothing wrong with the ones we see in stuff like the online game or that card-machine game.
Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if Toriyama designed those himself. Character designs for vidya isn't that uncommon from him. Actually, can female characters go Super Saiyan in DBO, because he was involved in a good deal of that.

There's no Saiyans left in the time period that DBO takes place in, but humans can use the dragon balls to wish for the ability to go SSJ, both genders.

I was going to make an infographic but I got lazy.

So, Season Sets ("Orange Bricks")
+ Widely available
+ Relatively cheap
- Somewhat controversial "remastering" that includes cropping the video to make it widescreen

Dragon Box
+ Very high quality
- Short print, very hard to find at this point

Z Kai
+ High quality
+ Most filler cut out, making it a good intro to the series.
+ English dub features a more accurate script than the original
- Only goes up to the Cell Saga

Level 1.1-1.2
+ While obviously the same masters as the Orange Bricks, it's also obvious that they actually did a good job with the remastering.
- Cancelled, so that's all there is.

As far as I'm concerned, the biggest reason Kai sucks is because it's not complete. They really screwed the pooch there.

As far as the censoring goes, I'm not surprised. Back in the day an anime could make all it's money in Japan and anything it made overseas was just gravy. Today it depends at least somewhat on good international reception, at least when it comes to mass-marketable shows aimed at children. So there's no doubt Toei was sensitive to their concerns and wanted to make things easier on them. Plus Japan itself is no longer tolerant of that kind of stuff on kids shows.

Hell, I'm surprised SD allowed Yamcha to see a naked Bulma AND Chi-Chi. That would never fly on TV.

I will say this about Buu:

Goten is such a pointless character I don't know why he was ever created.
>> No. 74006
He's a later-born herald of how divorced from the creator's interests or intention the franchise had gotten after Cell. Besides the fact that he was a miniature clone of young Goku trapped outside of Dragon Ball, he had nothing to do but be Trunks' friend. Apparently he was made to actually replace his dad in the show but fans, of course being what they are, don't like change in the product and thus he just fizzed in the midground.

That really annoys me, everyone who was meant to be the 'new defender of Earth', passing the torch and all that, was horribly jobbed just so Goku could be the one to save the day again.

Goten & Trunks, Gohan...Uub managed to escape this in Z since he was an epilogue character but then got hit with it in GT, which took the whole concept of Goku Time and RAN with it,
they all got it even worse there with stuff such as Gohan being inexplicably depowered or the two not even allowed to show off thier fusion because they are told it would be completly useless even as a freakin distraction.
>> No. 74012
The funny thing is that it's been happening all the way back to Z, remember when it was supposed to be Tien who was going to replace Master Roshi?

Kinda tempts me to try and think of way a way death could mean something in that universe, just so characters could become what they were meant to be.
>> No. 74030

If there's anything that best characterizes plotlines in Dragonball, it's repetition, repetition, repetition!

Look at all the characters who got redemption-by-being-defeated and changed from being a rival/antagonist to a good guy and friend of Goku? Krillin. Yamcha. Tien/Chiaotzu. Yajirobe. Piccolo. Vegeta. Android 17 and 18. (And if the anime fillers are to be taken seriously, Dabura, lol.) So basically everyone who is male and isn't Goku...

Then of course there's the issue where every single character (who isn't a Saiyan or halfling) becomes increasingly more useless as the series goes on. Roshi's usefulness didn't escape Dragonball. Yajirobe's last effort was cutting off Vegeta's tail (which was even more of a shock because he should have been irrelevent by then). Yamcha was proven useless by being killed by a freaking Saibaman. Tien, Chiaotzu, and Krillin practically didn't exist by the Buu saga, and Piccolo was demoted to babysitter and drill sergeant.

Oh, and you can add Pan to the list of potential-sucessors-who-didn't-succeed over the course of franchise. Also, the fact that there was never a teenage/adult Gotenks is one of the great injustices of the Dragonball world.

Yamcha was always useless.

That's not true, he saved Bulma once from getting hit by a car.

Outside of that, yeah, useless.
>> No. 74037
Was also the time he helped Goku beat that Gangster Bunny who could turn people into carrots and rescue Bulma.

It's a bit much to single out Yamcha, he was hardly the most useless of the Z-fighters (I believe Chiaotzu is the one that applies to. Its a shame cuz he's also kinda neat, if he'd been a useful later on they could have focused on his psychic powers in battle to differantiate him from other fights, and his 'floaty' hand-to-hand style.)

These guys all had way more interesting fighting styles and special techniques than the main characters, Piccolo and Krillin as well, compared to different coloured energy beams or larger energy beams which was all you saw from Goku and Vegeta once they go further and further into SSJ.

The grunts had ki attacks which actually mixed it up a tad-
Like Krillen's multi-targeting Scattering Bullet and cutting Destructo Disk
Yamcha's controllable and multi-hitting Spirit Ball/Super Spirit Ball
Tien's multi-form technique and 4-way ki-blast cannon, his lifeforce-powered Tri-Beam was cool too I guess which is why it sucked by Z he had to spam it just to delay an enemy in Z without doing any damage...
Piccolo had the Hellzone Grenade, and even the SBC was neat, more like a drill than an enveloping energy blast, too bad it only got used once in canon and was never refined
Chiaotzu never had much in the way of ki attacks, dodon ray and blowing himself up, but his telekinesis was something when he was using it to stop peoples movment's and attack thier internal organs...but then along comes Nappa and now his enemies are too strong for it to work anymore...
>> No. 74041
Problem with Chaotzu is he was obviously just made in the spot to be Krillin's rival, other than that there was nothing else to be done with him.

Something else that was missing when the series became all about hair boners and ki splooge?Hand-to-hand special techniques.
So stuff like Tien's Four Witches Technique (Growing extra arms) and Machine-Gun Punch, Yamcha's Wolf-Fang-Fist and even Piccolo's Namekkian-warrior limb stretching which never really got used to the extent it could have.
Even Future Trunks showing up and using a sword was a change.

I guess alot of this boils down to basically saying the fight scenes could have been alot more varied and creative, and the non saiyans could have been utilised a HELL of a lot better.

Due to being an American and growing up in the late 90's, I was one of (presumably) many who actually saw Z and GT long before Dragonball (partially because Cartoon Network almost never aired it...). It wasn't until a couple years ago that I was actually able to find a quality sub version online. I was utterly amazed at how freaking awesome it was that they were actually using techniques that could be considered martial arts, with a great variety and interest. At first, I thought I would be bored because I was so used to the transformations and Beam-O-Wars of Z, but it was the opposite. I had gotten complacent about Goku getting the crap beaten out of him, and not worrying because he hadn't even turned Super Saiyan yet. All of a sudden I have to remind myself, "Oh wait, he can't!" which makes the entire battle a lot more tense and unpredictable. It was a lot of fun seeing back when some of the other characters were quite powerful compared to Goku.

Yet another reason there should have been an adult Gotenks. He always came up with the most WTF-inducing techniques, a couple of which were frighteningly effective. It would have been nice to see something other than increasingly-larger Kamehamehas and increasingly-larger Spirit Bombs.
>> No. 74055
I dunno. I feel like the Buu arc was Toriyama getting back to basics. He'd spent so long out of his element and creating material that was outside of his comfort zone. The Buu arc was silly and fun. He was putting gags back into the book and just having fun. Sure the action picks up eventually, but the entire time he's got a silly edge to it all. Buu turns people into candy, Goku promises the Old Kai that he can grope Bulma in exchange for Gohan's training, and on top of all of that FUCKING GOTENKS.

Well, Power Poll/Nyoi Bo/Whatever was what Goku used to climb up to Kami's palace from Karin Tower. I'd imagine that by the time he was done training he figured that he really didn't need his old weapon anymore and just left it there or maybe he just plum forgot. He was training there for three years and it is Goku.

See, that's part of what I love about the time-line for Dragon Ball Online. Tenshinhan and Kurirrin end up reviving the crane and turtle schools. So while they never really could keep up with Goku, neither outright stopped their training. Goten and Trunks even manage to develop their own school around Sword Techniques. Honestly, if Ooishi wasn't the most likely candidate to write it, I'd love to see a manga based around that time-line.

Cell actually said that he didn't really have a goal. He was programmed to kill Goku by Dr. Gero, but that did not interest him; and he was programmed to seek his perfect form, which was his chief obsession. After getting there, however, he freely admitted that he had no real purpose and so held the Cell Games to rid himself of boredom.

Pikkon had cool tecniques as well.
Don't know thier names but he had a different theme to his moves than most fighters. Instead of an energy blast his finisher involved a massive piller of flame fired at an enemy and he had that kaioken-like power-up or attack he used on cell where he covers himself in flame and then rushed him, also that move he used on Goku that trapped him in a Tornado that started slicing him while he was stuck inside it.

It's a shame we never got an animal-earthling as a primary fighter in the Z-fighters. He could have had special abilities releating to his different physical form that could have set him apart in battle.

The reason Janenba appeared that way is because the "evil" had possessed an oni, and was thus just an extrapolation from HIS body. That is, it didn't have a physical form of "its" own by which to have a default appearance. If it possessed Baby, it would just look like a more evil version of Baby, and wouldn't have any resemblance to the Janenba from the movie. So, logically, it was the evil-infused-oni Janenba who was possessed by Baby, not the other way around, and therefore both the evil essence AND Baby both co-possessing the one, rather unlucky oni.

Of course, what the fuck am I doing trying to use logic in Dragonball?? I doubt the artist really thought through how possessors being re-possessed by a possessor would even freaking work.

Yeah, that movie was actually really good up until that ending (and even then, at least the attack is kinda cool. It isn't just "Goku uses the Genki Dama for the umpteenth time"). We got to see a side of Trunks that really didn't get shown off too much. Hell, even Gohan and Videl a little bit of spot light as Saiyaman and Saiyaman II. Also, it's one of the few (maybe the only, actually) that doesn't get stuck on mirroring what the show was going on in the show at the time of it's release.

Yeah, I remember loving that movie as a kid, but going back and rewatching the older films again, it's easily the worst of those first three movies. Hell, the Bojack movie does the same thing, but at least the characters get some time to shine at the very beginning. Still, most of the movies really suffer from "let's mirror the major conflict going on in the show right now!"

This is the main reason why I like Movie 11 (Bio Brolly) so much. Realize that EVERY SINGLE VILLAIN of any sort of significance (main villain of the arc/movie) was defeated either directly by Goku or with Goku's help in some significant way? This is the only exception; Goku spent the entire movie dead and useless, and were it not for the ten-second scene right before the credits, didn't even make an appearance at all!

And also I really like Trunks and Goten (and not just 'cause I'm a Shotacon) and feel they're totally unappreciated characters that were made entire useless as soon as the concept of fusion was invented. Now, any further plot or movie focuses on them getting their asses handed to them, and then they become Gotenks, sort of how Goku never did anything as a non-Super-Saiyan as soon as he became able to do it. But in that case, at least it's STILL HIM. Trunks and Goten have, in effect, become nothing more than a portal to bring Gotenks into existance so HE can do the work. Pisses me off because their real potential was never looked into (and then of course EVERYONE became totally useless in GT).

So it's nice to see a point where they can really go all-out against a bad guy with their own abilities being the only thing between victory and defeat.

Really, that's the one DBZ movie I still need to see; my complete disinterest in seeing Brolly coming back for a third time always kept me from sitting down with it.

Not sure if legit...
>> No. 79402
Yeah, seems pretty fake?

And man, post-Buu Saga SSJ-Gohan annoys me something fierce, it was one of the most nonsensical changes they made in GT, even if they didn't want to interrupt GokuTime with a Gohan who was too powerful why did they feel the need to have him go supersaiyan, instead of just being weaker than Goku anyway?
>> No. 79412
>Battle of Gods

Yes, this is when they reveal that there is YET ANOTHER level of deities in the Dragonball Universe.

Above the Kamis, who rule a world.
Above the Kais, who rule a quadrant.
Above the Grand Kai, who oversees them.
Above the Supreme Kais, who rule the universe.
Above the Grand Supreme Kai, who manages them all...

There are the Egyptian Kais, who evidently rule the multiverse.

Because, well... everyone loves furries, right? Every tenth background character in Dragonball is an anthro, anyway; and there were several such minor characters, too.

The poster and name/description is on several websites, including wikipedia and the dedicated Dragonball wiki; so it's either legit or it's fooled a LOT of people. It also says Toriyama was heavily involved in the production process, however. Despite his being famously forgetful, I can't really see him deciding to make Gohan a Super Saiyan again and tossing the Mystic power-up out the window just because GT did it. I don't know. It's not like movie poster art ever is copies of actual scenes in the movie. They might have done it just because it would look weird with every Saiyan on the cover having gold hair, except him.

>Post Buu
Looks fake to me. It's a shame, too. That guy looks kinda neat.

I dunno, it seems totally par for the course for Toriyama to forget that kinda stuff. I mean, if he can forget a character who was pretty much a Kame-house staple for the better part of 13 volumes AS HE WAS WRITING THE SERIES, then I don't think it's too hard to imagine him forgetting an a power-up he probably made up on the spot almost 20 years afterwards.

The last DBZ movie with the giant monster had Gohan at his full-power 'mystic' state, even if it had him job below both Goku and Gotenks (and then gotenks jobbed so Goku could be the one to save the day)

Hell I hadn't even thought of that, if they are gods they will need to be alot better than East Kaioshin to fight against supersaiyans since the series made him so insanely underpowered
(Still...apparently power levels varied alot between them, the big one was able to fight Kid Buu toe-to-toe to the point where he resorted to absorbing him, and that would mean their fat boss {who was no doubt more powerful as is the way of things in this series} might have even been stronger than Goku was)

Yes, it all makes sense now! In order to make sure that Goku is (once again) the one who has to save the day, the only protagonist characters stronger than him must be somehow eliminated.

Goku: OMG, the Earth is under attack. Someone must stop them!
Buu: Buu swear. Never fight again.

Aw man, really? That's lame.
>> No. 79556
Been wondering this for awhile.

I have fond memories of the original Budokai. I always credited it as the game that sort of shaped the style for many other anime games since (although I could be wrong). But were the alternate costumes in that one ever in the anime or manga? I remember Goku had a brown bomber jacket and Vegeta had a sort of black greaser jacket, and both were wearing jeans.
>> No. 79561
The brown bomber jacket is from official art of Goku not the series itself, while the black outfit for Vegeta sounds like his GT clothes
>> No. 79604
Yeah, that Goku outfit was probably from a piece of art work used for one of the chapter or book covers. Toriyama always had cool cover art.
>> No. 79669
I think I remember those were from some of the filler episodes during the Android Saga or something. Budokai 3 is still the best DBZ game.

I wish the Nicktoons edited Kai episodes were on DVD. I want to do an edit to re-insert Frieza's death scene on Namek with the one on Nicktoons because I like that one a lot better.
>> No. 79670
The football jacket he wore in the cell saga anime filler (while they have minor adventures waiting for the games to begin) looks different from the brown bomber jacket he wore in cover art.
>> No. 79693
So with all this talk about Kai continuing, are they going to get a new guy to compose the music or just use Kikuchi's score again? Hopefully if it's the latter they'll do a better editing job, but if they do that, I at least want a re-edit of the earlier sagas, because you can tell they only had a few days to do it and the editor had no idea where the music originally went.

And why stop at Z? Why not do a complete do-over for ye olde Dragon Ball too?

And Goku's new transformation is meant to be really boring. It is surprising that Goku doesn't even manage to beat Bills even with it, instead in losing he just made Bills use up too much energy so he doesn't have enough left to destroy Earth (which seems odd with how easily it would be for someone of his over the top powerlevel), then Bills fighting sensei thats been hanging about and who turns out TO BE EVEN MORE POWERFUL THAN HE IS OMG OMG knocks him out and the movie is apparently over
