Dragon Ball » What if Goku or Great Saiyaman joined the Avengers?

@Destinyheroknight: Thor and Black Widow are white anyway, Ultimate Nick Fury is based on Samuel L Jackson. And yes, I know Dragonball Earth is different to our Earth but, as you can see by the clothing/appearance, Dragonball characters are Asian.

That's also why Street Fighter the movie did badly, they had Belgian Van Damme playing American Guile.

And Goku is a Saiyan but Saiyans have >90% of their DNA similar to humans (more like >95%), hence them being able to have kids with human wives

Where in the heck did you get those percentages!?

90% of statistics are made up on the spot

*edit

Didn't realize there was 3 pages and replied on page 1. lol

I'm back LOL

Pigs and Chimps share >90% of human DNA

Let's do a head count here: your brother the demi-god; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breath-taking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins, and a couple of flying spiky haired dudes,and YOU, big fella, you've managed to piss off every single one of them.

Of course Nick Fury would still be the leader. The man can kill Bounty Hunters,Sith Lords and exterminate a plane full of snakes.

Tenchi Muyo » Why was Tenchi Muyo! so weird?

@Dream:I mean the Counteractor theory makes no sense. Surely there should be 3 for 3. They should've used the Devil Princess and Yosho's Mother. But they only used Misaki for some strange reason (the person least likely to behave like so). Plus it makes no sense why they didn't explain it in the anime for Western audiences

Ayeka's ship also chased Ryo Ohki and caught her. That and she did a suicide crash landing into the Earth.

Plus overall, why on Earth did they make it so it was so,so different in each continuity? It's called Tenchi Muyo yet GXP and Geminar don't have him in it. Sure Dragonball had Mystical Adventure and Path to Power but they were movies after all.

Tenchi Muyo » Why was Tenchi Muyo! so weird?

@Dream:Dr Clay could've been killed by Washu easily (so is not to be taken seriously) and Counteractor made no sense (particularly as it was in Japanese and because they didn't tell us WHY they chose to make Misaki like this).

If you could address my above post it'd be great

Tenchi Muyo » Why was Tenchi Muyo! so weird?

Oh yeah; the only 2 villains we had were Kagato and Z. Other than that the episodes went by slowly.

Universe was better (even Kagato), as was in Tokyo and the movies

Tenchi Muyo » Why was Tenchi Muyo! so weird?

@ronki23:

But we see Launch,Chi Chi or Bulma slap Master Roshi,Yajirobe,Yamcha or Krillin and they aren't as powerful so I never took that scene seriously. Not to mention Aeyeka and her guardians could take on Ryoko so it was natural for her mom to be able to do so.

Ryoko was never serious in any spars she had with Ayeka as she could easily dispatch the girl since Washu's gems give Ryoko greater power than the Juraian princess nor her guardians could muster. The best they could hope to accomplish was to restrain and capture the space pirate if she had only one of her gems, though even that is of no guarantee depending on Ryoko's mood.

Which also brings me on to Aeyeka and her guardians; they can beat Ryoko teaming up, and maybe even Aeyeka alone can beat Ryoko as we regularly see them literally wrestle to get Tenchi's attention. But Zero Ryoko is somehow more powerful even though she doesn't have a gem; Zero Ryoko beat the logs single handedly

Again, Ayeka and her guardians (even together) wouldn't be capable of defeating Ryoko. Zero could compete with Ryoko on equal grounds because both of them drew their powers and abilities from a different Choushin (Ryoko from Washu, Zero from Tokimi).

Firstly,the videos show Ayeka could 'beat' Ryoko; though it seems she needs her guardians. Sorry for the inconvenience. Yet Zero beat Ryoko and Zero Ryoko beat the Guardians. Ayeka is quite prepared to stand up to Ryoko and she herself is sister of a Goddess (and technically Ryoko's aunt).

We didn't know at the time that Zero was a 'divine' cyborg, she was just created by the Doctor. Plus Ryoko had a 3rd of Washu's power I believe. Again i'm using Dragonball analogies here but Androids 17 and 18 were artificial and stronger than the 'Gods' like the Kais because we realise the Kais aren't that important (King Kai himself says Nappa is more powerful here). The Androids could beat Super Saiyans because Super Saiyans were merely charged up aliens who Dr Gero factored in. Zero was just some random cyborg with robotic thoughts (at least the Androids were humanoid).

I'm still confused why they chose Misaki to be the counter actor and why there is one counter actor for 3 Goddesses.

Dragon Ball » What would be a better: Vegeta's Sister or Raditz' Daughter?

@takashichea said:

@ronki23:

You got Android 18 and Bulma.

A strong female character doesn't have to be physically strong. Goku had to be rescued and saved by his family and friends. He's a strong character. Bulma is a smart woman who helps her group survive. Android 18 is strong willed yet gentle at the same time.

It's just that DBZ has the spotlight on the Saiyan characters.

Edit:

I haven't seen Battle of the Gods. I'm waiting for the official English dub.

But Bulma or 18 didn't fight Frieza,Cell or Majin Buu; neither did Chi Chi,Launch,Videl. Maron doesn't fight anyway.

Plus i'm thinking from a 'what if' viewpoint, it'd be cool having a new Saiyan female.

I too haven't seen it, the Multiverse and Wiki ruined it by posting the plot without spoilers. That and the fact that youtube had entire fight scenes between SSJ3 Goku and Bills and SSJ2 Vegeta vs Bills before the movie was even released

Tenchi Muyo » Why was Tenchi Muyo! so weird?

@Dream said:

@ronki23:

but WHY is there only 1 counter actor for 3 Chousin and WHY Misaki?

Hints were dropped as early as Here Comes Jurai that Misaki wasn't an ordinary Juraian as she could casually pummel Ryoko and negate her power, as the space pirate would have otherwise been able to shrug off the damage that she received from other Juraians like Ayeka and her log guardians. Masaki Kajishima also dropped a hint in one of his guidebooks alluding to the possibility that "the universe would know the true terror of Misaki." He intended for her to play a vital role for later installments in his franchise and her role in the third OVA was what it led up to.

I still don't fully understand why, if the anime came first, there needed to be novels,etc. and more importantly, why they weren't released as it'd confuse us Western viewers (like it has).

The extra stuff created by Kajishima allowed more light to be shed on elements of the OVA continuity that there wasn't time to cover properly in anime form. Much of the extra fan material couldn't be licensed since it was printed material that mostly involved Kajishima's input and was out of the hands of any anime developers involved in the creation of the franchise. The only printed material that got some sort of exposure in the West was the 101 Secrets of Tenchi Muyo guidebook that had some of its questions translated and released in a DVD set of the series released over a decade ago. Because of how old the content is, it is highly doubtful that there will ever be an American release of the stuff.

Never seen GXP or Geminar,etc. It says Tenchi Muyo but no Tenchi in it! Plus it was abrupt the way in which they ended Muyo after Royal Family and put this random stuff in

Tenchi and the girls make an appearance in one of the later episodes of GXP when the title's main lead, Seina, needed Washu's help to learn more about his new spaceship, Fuku, which she created. While Tenchi isn't the main lead of GXP or Geminar, they are still part of the OVA continuity since they involve Tenchi and other supporting characters of the series in some form (for instance, Geminar lead Kenshi is the half-brother of Tenchi). And again, the mentioned stuff with the Jurai Royal Family makes more sense if you seen earlier titles in the franchise and do research on whatever doesn't get covered in the anime as there are several sites online I usually visit that have summaries on all the major stuff in Kajishima's novels, interviews and doujin that weren't properly addressed in anime form.

And just so you don't go assuming things, Tenchi Universe, Tokyo and the trilogy of movies made in the 1990s aren't part of the OVA continuity since they significantly alter elements and back story of the characters compared to the OVAs, GXP and Geminar.

But we see Launch,Chi Chi or Bulma slap Master Roshi,Yajirobe,Yamcha or Krillin and they aren't as powerful so I never took that scene seriously. Not to mention Aeyeka and her guardians could take on Ryoko so it was natural for her mom to be able to do so.

Dragon Ball » What would be a better: Vegeta's Sister or Raditz' Daughter?

@takashichea:Well there's Battle of the Gods where there are different Universes and we were introduced to Tarble. I feel we need a strong female character. Plus from a 'what if' standpoint, Vegeta having a sister would be funny or Raditz having a daughter would bring him back into importance considering he can't be revived (again, this is from a what if standpoint)

Dragon Ball » What would be a better: Vegeta's Sister or Raditz' Daughter?

I always thought there should be another female Dragonball Z character. We have Chichi and Bulma who are noncombatants, Launch who vanished in Z, and 18 who doesn't even attack Super Buu.

I always thought Vegeta would be the type of person to have a sister; he's already got a wimpy younger brother so the opposite of that is a badass older sister or a twin sister. I am thinking like Luke and Leia Skywalker here. Would be funny if she fell in love with Goku and Goku's too confused (kinda like TFS Goku)

However, Goku could also have a sister but he already has Raditz and Turles (unofficial and we don't know whether he's his brother,cousin or uncle). Considering Raditz is dead, it would be better for him to have a secret kid. Maybe she could try take revenge on Goku and Piccolo but eventually become a Z fighter.

@ronki23:

Tenchi Muyo! was already a weird show, before hand

1. The episode was about Washu character and back story

2. A lot of anime do that

3. It wasn't really random, the episode was showing there more to Washu and the part with Zero was Ryoko was drunk and caught off guard

4. They run out of money

5. Yeah, this show is full of incest

6. Yes and no, she give up her powers to live as a mortal

They had Universe, In Tokyo, and the movies too.

I actually enjoyed Universe more.

Tenchi Muyo » Why was Tenchi Muyo! so weird?

@Dream:But Kami Tenchi was already more powerful than the Chousin; not to mention there then should be 3 counter actors for 3 chousin. If the anime came first, why is this occurrence explained in the manga?

I still don't fully remember why the Chousin got together.

But there were still several random episodes in Tenchi Muyo, another being Mihoshi's brother or the last one where they all went back in time in the final episode and found the female Kagato. That and the sudden appearance of Tenchi's grandmother (which made no sense) or his new girl.

R.e. Ryo Ohki, she's a freaking spaceship that could destroy planets when at full power. She's flown through space and she gets lost in the woods ¬_¬

Street Fighter » Which Street Fighter (anime) Movie is Canon?

I have only seen:

Street Fighter II

Street Fighter Alpha*

Street Fighter Alpha Generations

Street Fighter IV

But I still haven't seen the series. I'm unsure what's canon as I read a manga for Street Fighter II a long time ago where Balrog,Vega and Sagat attacked Ken

Still don't understand how Ken couldn't destroy the Android when he told Ryu you don't need Satsui no Hado

Tenchi Muyo » Why was Tenchi Muyo! so weird?

I watched all of the Tenchi Muyo!, Tenchi Universe and Tenchi in Tokyo series after 11 years earlier this year. I also watched the movies: Daughter of Darkness and Tenchi in Love 1 & 2.

I'm assuming this is one of the few times anime comes before manga

Tenchi Muyo became weird and boring after the Kagato saga:

1. They had an episode about a baby

2. They had an episode about Ryo Ohki getting lost in the woods

3. They had an episode or 2 about a random Android sent to kill Tenchi and instead falls for Tenchi. Somehow this Android is more powerful than Ryoko (even though Ryoko has the power of the gems of Washu which means she can destroy a planet with all 3). I guess Android 17/18> Vegeta but still, it doesn't make sense in Muyo because Washu is still more powerful than the Android

4. They had a huge episode gap (several years) after 'Here comes Jurai' and it wasn't anything to do with Jurai

5. Tenchi's Sister is in her 80s which means their Dad's in his 200s. Tenchi's Maternal side is Jurain, not the paternal side. If it was true wouldn't he all be like 'wtf,my Dad's over 200 years old'. Plus it means the Dad and Mom are related

6. Washu can already beat everyone

I still don't understand why there is a counter-actor and why it is Aeyeka/Sasami's Mom. There is no explanation for it at all.

General Discussion » Why do Asian girls love Doraemon so much?

@UltimateHero0406:I guess but some of them don't even know each other so it can't have been to do with that-especially when several groups did things without me

General Discussion » Why do Asian girls love Doraemon so much?

@UltimateHero0406:I tried with both the date and Mandarin but both to bad extent

Not only the Asian girls but the Asian boys stopped talking to me. We are on a Postgrad course and our last assignment was 6th September. The one before that was 2nd August and 4 of us went to lunch, then after the 4th August ALL of them stopped talking to me for an unknown reason. On the 15th July another 4 of us went to lunch too.

But I found out that 4-5 of them went travelling in the UK without me, even after I suggested it

8 went to the theme (Chinese,Thai and Malaysian) park 3 days after I suggested it

and 2 of them are couples and spend 100% of their time together. One of the guys was my best friends (Taiwanese) and never replies anymore-saying his girlfriend wants this or that, she's unwell,blah blah

my best friend out of these Asians (more than 10) stopped replying to me

and a girl I found cute who I went to lunch with left the country on 16th August. I asked my friend for her WeChat ID so no reply. I facebooked her a friend request and asked her what her WeChat was/I gave mine but all I saw was a "read" sign

and that was going on facebook after 2 months. I then find a Chinese friend (unrelated to these ones) unfriended me even though he's nothing to do with these ones

So I have had bad experiences with quite a lot of East Asians. Unfortunately, I am an Indian but I never got along with the Indians either :( It seems Asians don't like me for reasons unknown

General Discussion » Why do Asian girls love Doraemon so much?

@UltimateHero0406: these girls are 22-24 year old Chinese grad students (who themselves are very cute-well, most of them anyway)

Going off-topic but the ones that try too hard to act cute are annoying. It's called Aegyo I believe-the pretty ones are normally quiet and are only loud when they get into conversations (which is naturally more frequent when they speak in Mandarin to other Chinese.

General Discussion » Why do Asian girls love Doraemon so much?

@UltimateHero0406: but if Pokemon's popular in China, surely they'd be into the modern ones. Anyway, if it was popular there i'm sure they'd be into other cute Pokemon from Gen 1.5 (let's be realistic here, Pokemon has been popular from it's anime and movies so there'd be Marril and Togepi as 'cute' gen II alongside Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff,Clefairy/Clefable,the starter Pokemon)

Not sure what Asian girls think of Pokemon but if a Western girl went around wearing Pokemon clothing/accessories, she'd be seen as a geek. It's more of a gaming thing in the West now

As for the ones I know, there are 4 girls into Doraemon but not other cute things. You can't think all like Doraemon more than other cute things?
