I'm 99% sure that's because Arale being an android is a perma kid and Toriyama writes kids much differently than he writes adults, kids he cares less about what sex they are and more about how they fit into the story whereas his adults are much more set in specific roles, though that might be Japanese culture influencing that.

Thing is though im not saying toryiama shouldn't write girly or stay at home mom characters or that no writer should do that, im just annoyed that the videl we met back when gohan was starting highschool and the videl in super are basically two different people and not in a good "character development" way, honestly i like android 18 and krillin together because as she showed in the tournament she can still kick ass she just has a family to look after now, then again this was back when videl was the character i liked and gine from dragonball minus didn't exist so im kinda glad 18 isn't a main player in the story, she would end up turning into videl.

Plus she just stood back and let her husband do the work in revival of f despite probably still being stronger than him so.........yeah.

Haha I remember that scene she was like "but I'm stronger then most of you" and then Krillen was like "But I'm bald! So go hold down the fort for me!"

Ever think about how dbz would be if everyones gender got reversed?

I always read anything krillin related in the TFS voice now and that is totally something TFS krillin would say.

Also theres a tumblr blog for that:

You might be looking into in a bit too deeply

It's pretty obvious why he went. Toriyama wanted all the characters who fought Freeza on Namek to
fight him again. Playing that sweet, sweet nostalgia card, no doubt

Toei gives no shits, sadly.

*Hugs the DBZ fandom tight* :crybaby: I feel your pain! Though my main issue with Crystal was how they managed to botch story elements, not so much the animation.

For me it was both of these things which is why i dropped it rather quickly.

Those are shopped to exaggerate, right? They're not actual screenshots from the show, right? Right? Right?!

I really would like to say that these are edited, but sadly no.

It's weird; most of it's fine, but every once in a while you get frames that make you say "what the fuck, man?" Be less obvious, Toei!

Yeah, i am surprised people are acting like ''omg look at this''. This was always the case with long running TOEI shows.

Also some insight about the Dragon Ball animation

http://www.kanzenshuu.com/animation-styles/

While the following link doesn't justify the horrible shots of the previous episode, it should at least explain why sometimes the animation may look ''off''.

That red bandanna is a really nice touch to his character design, which is already pretty cool. Poor Future Trunks, can never just relax in his perfect future home. He was always, always(since '99) my favorite Dragon Ball character, so this news actually had me pretty happy, though I haven't watched any Super.

Rewatched the ep. last night where he returns to the future and rids the world of evil, tells 17 to go to hell, and flings Cell around by his tail. It's still good!
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

Battle of Gods was the most recent DBZ product I have watched, not seen Resurrection F or any of Super.

Teaser for a upcoming arc apparently... I honestly have wanted a female villain for DBZ but what looks like a female Broly is kinda jumping the gun a bit. :tongue:

The teaser looks interesting, but Super has not yet caught my attention, and I'm waiting for something other than the multiverse theroy to pop out.

As for the female Broly... Oh, look, they're taking the worst movie villian they ever had (Janemba included, at least he had a sword, and Lord Slug, well, Broly is worse) and making Broly into Brolina. As much as I want to see a female super sayian (mostly because of the hair, what happens to the hair?!) Perhaps giving us a female Gohan in another universe who has trained and is actually allowed to be stronger than Anime Jesus Goku would be far more entertaining to me.

Now, as controversial as this may be, I never liked Broly, I found his motivations to be lacking, because Goku cried as a baby and gave him PTSD, as pointed out by TFS in their latest installment of DBZA (WEN BROLY?! BROLY NOW!) Also, Broly is a super sayian rip off of the Hulk (green aura, stronger when he gets angrier, near indestructible, etc). I personally enjoyed Bojack Unbound far more, mostly because of the backseat Goku took.

I like both Janemba/Slug but otherwise agree not a fan of Broly (I did liked the build up to him and his look before hulking out)

Cooler/MetaCooler & Bojack are my top favorite villains of the franchise.

The one thing that does have me slightly interested is the woman who turns into the Broly looking form looks kinda fearful/innocent which could make for a interesting contrast. We shall see.

Cooler is definitely pretty awesome, and if I had to rate the villian based on their movies, it'd be Bojack, Janemba, Meta-Cooler, Cooler, Andoird 13, Slug, Dr. Wheelo, Garlic Jr., Broly, and then the rest sort of fall flat after that. Like Hirudigan, not very impressive as an enemy. And Turtles is basically mirror universe Goku.

Well, it will be interesting to see, as this show is always full of surprises, even if they are now fighting at the level of a God (which is interesting and so over the top at the same time).

I do agree with you, Broly as a regular old Super Sayian is far cooler looking than his Hulk-ed out form. But once he went past that it was like, why? They should have jut made him SSJ2 to show how powerful it was before Cell, instead of making that thing happen.
