Count Zero?

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

Per the article this is indeed set after Battle of Gods and Resurrection of F.

I don't hate GT as much as most people seem to, but I do hope all of this new stuff eventually does outright replace it.

I like the idea that Bulla/Bra should be absurdly strong because of how powerful Vegata was when she was/will be conceived.

DBS to replace DBGT. Hopefully with Toriyama's input it'll do better. But as Gundam, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars has shown us sometimes the original creator might need to step back and let someone else take the franchise. Still I don't think it'll be hard to top GT.

Toriyama has some issues, such as forgetting characters and forms, but I still like him as a creator.

 

I read "Jaco the Galactic Patrolman" recently and thought it was a pretty fun adventure.

I wouldn't be surprised if they adapted that into a movie or OVA at some point.

I hope that, with no manga to follow, this can be paced like a real TV show. I loved DBZ, but I'm old and don't have time to get into a 300 episode series again.

I'll have to track down the new movies at some point though, have they all been dubbed?

"Battle of Gods" has been dubbed, but "Revival of F" only recently debuted in theaters in Japan.
I think it's planned to come out in English sometime in the summer.

Man, I gotta hurry up and watch Battle of Gods. I've had it for months, but I'm so used to doing other things while I watch TV that I can't find a solid hour to sit and pay attention to something that's subtitled.

 

I didn't even realize the sequel had already come out. Weird that they went back to the Frieza well. With a fanbase that memorizes and defends character power levels like they're from the Torah, it's funny to me that they'd go back 3 or 4 Big Bads (not counting GT, obviously) and try to make him threatening again.

I liked Battle of Gods, and I haven't seen Revival of F yet, but I think a series makes for a better Dragon Ball revival.

With both Battle of Gods and and the older special where they introduced Vegeta's brother I got the impression they were spending time checking a lot of boxes. Making sure they get enough references in there to satisfy all of the fans.

 

With a series I would hope they would have enough space to focus on more new stuff.(That can then be referenced in later movies)

This is totally a thing I'm down for! And I too would love to see some actual prowess from Bulla/Bra as well.  I'd like to see a canon female supersaiyan dammit!

I've been re-watching GT recently, good to watch before bed, and there were a couple moments when they were on M-2, the Machine Mutant planet, that seemed like they would have been perfect for Pan to go Super Saiyan. So disappointing.

While I am a fan of DBZ, I kinda feel the the new stuff is kinda creatively bankrupt. Vegata's brother, Bardock being the legendary Super Sayian, "new" Super Sayian forms that are just normal super sayian with red or blue hair, Freiza's new form being his old form in gold. GT wasn't perfect, but at least it had idea that didn't feel like retreading everything, even SS4 was somethign interesting and different then just a damn pallet swap. So I am not really sure if this isn't gonna be more of the same.

I think that's being a bit reductive. Dragon Ball is more than just the forms and power ups. Having a hook to get people to watch doesn't mean the rest of it can't be fun and interesting.

 

Also, isn't the Bardock thing a non-canon video game tie-in?

 

edit:

That said, I think that sentiment goes along with my wanting them to move away from the movie format.

The reason they're handing out new forms like candy might be because they think it's required for movies.

 

A new series would probably also have new forms, but there would probably be, proportionally, less time dedicated to them.
