"Far, fare better things in the world to enjoy than DBZ"

That's an opinion you fucking idiot.

"One character might be more interesting or better developed than another, and that's a debate honestly worth having."

That's another opinion you dolt.

Honestly, get off Funnyjunk and go outside.
#258 - larknok (5 hours ago) [-]
Of course they're fucking opinions!

Not all opinion concerning debates are equal. For example, you could either have a debate about which country would win in a war, and compare their respective military strengths and weaknesses, and try to discern to the best of your ability -- and in the end, you would form an opinion.

Or, you could debate about which bland character has been arbitrarily given more power in their respective fictional universes: Goku or Superman.

Do you see the difference? I sure hope so.

If I haven't made it sufficiently clear yet, I'm not trolling. I honestly think that anybody who finds DBZ to be more than just visually entertaining needs to branch out and try new things.

Holy shit you're a faggot kid. You call debating over fictional characters autistic, yet there you are spouting your opinion on an anime.

Trolling on funnyjunk, and you have the gall to call other people autistic?

I'm not sharing a positive opinion of an anime. I'm trying to point out that there's far, far better things in the world to enjoy than DBZ, and that it is revealing of a dominating respect for power that people like it at all, which is a bad thing.

Debating over fictional characters isn't autistic. Debating over which fictional character is more powerful is. One character might be more interesting or better developed than another, and that's a debate honestly worth having. Durr hurr, "the writers made this one more powerful than that one" isn't interesting at all.

No, I certainly have watched DBZ.

I watched it when I was younger, and tried coming back to it about a year ago, expecting it to be good.

Instead, what I found was shitty writing and a plot I didn't care about -- a power struggle between good and evil. I just don't care about that anymore. I really don't care if the good guys have enough power to beat the bad guys in a fictional universe.

"Goku is the closest character to a Mary Sue that I can even conceive of."

Well shit, you must have quite the limited brain then. Downright retarded by my books.

Anyways, thanks for confirming you've never watched the show.
#240 - larknok (6 hours ago) [-]
I know it's not easy for you to imagine that someone could possibly not like the shows that you do for legitimate reasons, but I'll try my best to explain.

Rather than argue the definition of what a mary sue constitutes, let's make this abundantly clear: Goku is not an interesting character. We all want to be Goku because he's an ideal and nothing short of it. His moral character, physical and emotional endurance etc. are what we strive for -- not something we can easily identify with.

Also, "some of my attacks take awhile to charge" is not a fucking character flaw. Neither is "when I make myself millions of times stronger than usual, I can only obliterate small star clusters for a few minutes." In fact, even listing these as character flaws shows that you are literally equivocating power with character. They aren't the fucking same.

Here's one of Goku's flaws -- he literally decides the future of his children for them by forcing them into the same sort of fighting ring he exists in, and otherwise ignores them. He's not a good Dad, like, at all. But I can't give the show credit for this flaw, because it never considers exploring that angle of Goku -- because it's not interested in giving the supreme ideal character real flaws.

The writing is shit too. Go watch the Cell final battle. It's fucking cringe worthy.

Stop throwing around the "Mary-Sue" buzzword like you know what it means.

Goku is far from a Mary sue. He gets his ass kicked by every major villain and has lost as much fights as he's won. He constantly has to train to achieve new heights and if he was a mary sue then his powers would be gift wrapped for him.

He have flaws, SSJ3 takes too much energy, takes time to charge Spirit Bomb, too weak, relying on others, and doesn't know when to spare someone or let them live.

If Goku was a mary sue he could solve all his problems without any trouble. But he can't. The whole Dragon Ball manga is an uphill battle in which Goku has to overcome trials through hard work, the literal opposite of a mary sue.

"Goku is the most powerful mary sue of a character ever conceived of" Thanks for confirming you know nothing about Dragon Ball as a whole and judge it off a power standpoint.

Isn't sparing someone and letting them live the same thing?

you see goku would lose Superman has so many more powers than most people know cause they dont read the comics when they made this video they got wit the biggest fan group and writers and comic/manga book nerds and companys and they spent 4 months just coming up with the final result to be as accurate as possible goku lost cause his arrogance to fight some one at their best and he also can fly in space and not need air and superman has done some shit goku would need to be super sayan 69 to do and super man didnt even break a sweat

This is the autistic shit I was talking about.

Why the fuck do you care which fictional and artificially strong character is stronger? You're not going to show which character is a better character, just which writer is a shittier writer.

You know what? I'm going to create the blandest, most powerful character I can right now, and he's going to be called SupremeMan. SupremeMan is better than everything and everyone. He's benevolent, so that means he cares about all the good things in the world and tries his best to protect them. He succeeds because there are no limits to his power. When people try to attack him, they always fail, and can never even land a punch, ever. Occasionally, for the purpose of creating tension, SupremeMan will be faced with a new big bad guy who can somehow match his power temporarily, before SupremeMan ultimately grows from this stupid experience somehow and comes out even more powerful. And I'll run this same plot arch with a new villain five or six times, before I just decide "fuck it, SupremeMan is the best" and retire the character forever.

Listen here you magnanimous faggot.

Goku is the closest character to a Mary Sue that I can even conceive of. He's friendly, constantly striving to get better, only wants whats good for other people, is willing to sacrifice himself, and pushes his limits beyond all finite barriers.

Sure, he has to work for the power, but its literally nothing more than doing sit ups in a gravity chamber and screaming to muster the strength to defeat a big bad guy whose motives have never made any sense.

If you could get your head out of your ass and see what people can actually do with characters, you would be sick to your stomach every time someone praises Goku as an interesting character. He's not fucking interesting. He's a 12 year old boy's wet dream, and nothing more.

I bet you screamed trying to go Super Saiyan as a kid, you giant faggot.

Matters how you look at it.

The basic rule of anime, is that they keep the meanings simple. Not bad writing.

If you started watching from Dragonball, then through Dragonball Z, Goku's battle was never his opponents. His battle in himself is the representation of all of our strivings to success, and how we constantly get better and better, regardless of his is bigger or stronger.

Sure, Goku fights many many battles. Though he follows a code of ethics. He never does what isn't absolutely necessary. The one exception is maybe when he goes super saiyan, but even then he tries his hardest to follow his values. The second is he does what's best for everyone. He let Gohan fight Cell, for example.

So in truth you have a person who is facing brand new difficulties throughout the entire series; all of these difficulties do have the same theme of fighting however.

It's not a crappy show. It's good writing but simple meaning. If you're not into simple meaning you shouldn't watch most animes, very few having an exception to the rule of simplicity.

Like Death Note. "It's wrong to kill!" "No it isn't!" pretty simple meaning behind it. But the battle of minds is interesting and deep.

However, I do agree that the best animes are the ones with a complex and even somewhat unknown meaning. Fullmetal Alchemist (original) is still my favorite anime after 3 years. The reason being that it brings out the flaws of human philosophies at the price of watching the show itself, self reflecting the rule of equivalent exchange and also giving validation and exclusion to other meanings, not to mention how it shows why even after death we would not know what happens after death, because it's not our place to stop asking questions.
#219 - larknok (6 hours ago) [-]
You missed the point. Goku is a massive mary sue because he only ever gets better, is always acting ethically, almost always solves his problems by beating something to a pulp or making friends, etc.

That's not to say that other shows don't do the same thing. It's just that it's a shitty and extremely boring thing to watch.

When I said that the writing is bad I mean two things. First, the kind you commented on. The show isn't trying to do anything particularly interesting with its already bland characters. It is literally only trying to get to the next big fight, and trump the power scales of the previous fight. Even when Goku lets Gohan fight cell, it's not for any "growing experience" reason. It's literally just "yeah, only I see that Gohan is extremely powerful, and because only I see it, it's vaguely religious or something."

Second, when I say that the writing is bad, I also mean that the writing babies the ever living shit out of its audience like nothing else can. All of the characters talk in this painfully slow fashion, describing every one of their emotions, feelings, thoughts, etc. Nothing is left to the viewer to discern.

To say that other shows are worse is missing the point too. The point is that DBZ isn't worth your time -- not that you should be spending it watching something even worse.
