    Was a great episode. Only complaint was that the music was too loud to hear at times. Overall, well done! Looking forward to the rest.

    Same, particularly at the beginning of the Goten fight while the balding guy was talking to himself. Could barely figure out what he was saying over the music.

    Brolly had SOOOO much potential to his character, it is a shame he was just a mindless villain.

    Speaking of Broly, has anyone else read last week's and today's updates of Bringer of Death? I've always been interested to see how it'd turn out and I like the direction they're going.

    Oh hell yes I did. And it was satisfying as heck. I wasn't actually expecting them to take Broly in that direction, but I am very pleased with it. Heck, I don't think I've ever been displeased yet with BoD.

    Note: Talking about recent BoD stuff, so don't read if you don't want spoilers or you haven't read today's chapter yet!

    I had thought they might, when Vegeta was thinking about it and talking to Broly after he went SSJ2. I thought it was over after Broly sent that Omega Cannon towards the star, I thought Vegeta would kill him for sure. Vegeta going SSJ2 was very cool as well, though since he's "at peace," I wonder if we'll still see Majin Vegeta later. This is definitely one of my favorite chapters, if not the favorite.

    I can't wait to see where else they take him. I hope he can keep training with Vegeta, maybe to ultimately master the Legendary form like Vegeta told him he had to. Can you just imagine that later on? Bojack and Buu won't stand a chance against a Broly who actually knows how to fight strategically and can control his LSSJ form.

    If I had to guess... I'd say that Majin Vegeta won't be happening. Heck, will there even be someone Majin empowered? I bet they could pull it off. Majin Broly? Perhaps, but sounds kinda... I dunno, cliché. Perhaps Piccolo III? Nah, still wouldn't pose a challenge to any SSJ2. Trying to guess BoD is an exercise in futility, really, these guys pull off some amazing plot twists and stuff.

    There was a youtube video, something along the lines of "how my parents see dbz". Anyone have a link to it? Was pretty funny.

    Yeah, they've kept me guessing at almost every turn. I think it's fun to guess though, just to see what actually happens. It's amazing, really.

    Few questions/ideas I do have about what's coming:

    1. Is it going to be Gohan or Vegeta who kills off Cell?
    2. Will Bojack come from Broly's destruction of the star during his fight with Vegeta?
    3. Will Gohan keep his antics during the Great Saiyaman Saga, and will he continue to train?


    Those are my 3 big questions, those are the ones I REALLY want to know about hahah.

    I will update the OP this week and Include both Honor Trip and Bringer of Death in my Fan fic section. I will also replace the videos that have since been removed. I loved this weeks bringer of death.... I dont care about Bojack. I want them to handle Dr. Raichi and the Hatchiyak!


    http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__...ir-d5h2p3g.jpg

    That is a picture of the Hatchiyack fighting Broly. Btw that is just random fan art and has nothing to do with BOD



    Btw I hate Honor trip. Its just toooooo...... un DBZ like. BOT feels like it is DBZ just with a different direction. Plus the authors dont Jack it to their favorite character every chapter.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Main reasons for why I am not a fan of Honor Trip.

    1. It starts out far to slowly while being very serious. DBZ was only slow due to filler, not due to it's actual plot. Also it was a comical show, Honor Trip is anything but, comical.

    2. It is too well written. The characters are given so much depth that I forget that this is DBZ.

    3. Too many equations.... the entire focus on many of the chapters is in the power level debates and multipliers! BOT (bringer of death) handles this in the Q & A section.

    4. Cell is the Defacto main character and an obvious Stu. He is even more perfect than in canon! Just too perfect. He can do no wrong! He knows all! He is all!

    I only like the fan art and the inspiration that the authors gave to others. BOT would not exist with out Honor Trip..... which would not exist with out multiverse, but ok!

    also this art of Hyper Perfect Cell.



    I stopped reading when


    spoilers



    Cell wanted to train Gohan

    I started reading both of those fan fictions about 11 months ago (after actually seeming them posted on this thread). I'd never read fan fiction before and I had a lot of time to kill so it was a case of /shrug why not for me. I really enjoy reading BoD and look forward to new chapters each week. For Honor Trip, it's pretty much a case of I've already invested my time into the story, so I continue reading it just because.

    Honor Trip has its good points, but the characters are so unrealistic that it kills me to read their lines. It's like the author has to prove that he has a high vocabulary knowledge or play out how he wishes the characters really behaved. The conversations are pretty tiring to read and I can't imagine anybody in the real world talking in a manner as he has his characters talk in. And then we go from having every character being extremely intelligent (or at least linguistic) to then having Gohan needing to ask his dad "is my hair pointing up sharp?" to know if he was ascended or not. The guy has clearly worked hard on his story so I'm not trying to knock him or criticise him, but it just seems almost forced and unnatural. I'll still read his story, I'm still interested in the plot regardless of if I like the writing style or not.

    BoD on the other hand is very easy to read and does an absolutely fantastic job of feeling genuine and realistic. The plot is well thought out, most of the events make sense and my brain doesn't ache from trying to believe a conversation might happen.

    I'll assume most of the people who read fanfics will have read Break Through the Limit (raditz is the main character). This is in the Honor Trip category for me as far as being something I continue to read, but I don't go out of my way to do so. The author seems needy, as if he's trying to please every single possible person. I almost get annoyed reading his replies to people to the point that I usually don't bother at all. The plot is decent on paper, but in execution it's really rushed and all over the place. A lot of the time it also seems unrealistic, but less so than Honor Trip. I mention this story only because it seems to be one of the most popular on the fanfic website, but it doesn't really impress me personally and I'm curious about other opinions.

    My favourite fanfic is one that people may not have actually heard of. It's called dragonball legends and it's a story focused on Bardock and Kakarott (not Goku). This story is mostly drama than action, but the plot is absolutely superb and extremely original. It follows dragonball z to an extent, but the large majority of the story is absolutely original with a large amount of non canon characters making up the story as well as just about every single canon character being nothing like they are in canon, yet being absolutely true to their characteristics. I won't post details incase anybody reads this and looks into the story for themselves, but bulma as a character in this story is immense.The plot itself is just as believable to read as BoD and has just as many plot twists and cliffhangers (if not more) although the people looking for action will probably be put off by the lack thereof. Sadly the author only updates about once every 1-2 months (she (yes, she) is an actual author so has other book projects). I find myself looking forward to the updates for this story much more than I do for BoD.


    I appreciate the effort that all the authors put into making their stories, but only a couple of stories have genuinely captivated me.

    I just started reading Bringer of Death today and I definitely like it, it's a nice twist on the established series. The story follows a different path, but the characters are still themselves. It's still believable. Now I have to read up on soooo many pages.

    They also take logical steps into those new paths, especially with Cooler.

    Patch notes:

    Videos that no longer existed had been replaced with either, a newer video or, a video of the same part of the series.

    Bringer of Death and Honor Trip have been updated into my fan fic section

    New Banners will be posted on a regular basis of my choosing.

    So apparently Jaco is a tie-in to Dragon Ball if we go by what kanzenshuu says here.

    Discuss maybe ?

    "The shocking revival of “Dragon Ball”!! "

    Called it. Couldn't be happier! *jumps around his house wildly throwing confetti everywhere*
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.
