    man this game looks so good, that every other anime game including the next dbz will be judged by this criteria, simply trendsetting, step up your game devs.

    Why did Hit steal Cuphead’s theme?

  • Ckarasu

    I was glad that Hit got in when I heard. People can shit on Super, but he’s an actually decent character. Contrary to his looks, he’s actually a pretty spirited competitor and one of the few rivals to Goku that starts off being genuinely respectful to him.

    I know DB is a sausage fest and everything but could the characters look any more different for once? It is so weird that early Toriyama had better character designs before all the money and fame.

  • It isn’t very surprising when you consider that his heart wasn’t really in it for the series as it went on. This interview has a number of questions focusing on the subject (including how Super Saiyan is easier to draw for his assistant): http://www.kanzenshuu.com/translations/dragon-ball-super-history-book-akira-toriyama-interview/

    I’ve grown to accept the limited range in character design, just hoping for some gameplay variety which Hit seems to have down despite not having the greatest design in Dragon Ball (probably among the best designs in Super though).

    I’m guessing the designs are done as cynically as possible, people like Frieza and Cell so here’s another similar character design, people want Broly back and girl saiyans/super saiyans so here are ones with oddly different design styles to help maximize waifu potential and one of them is Broly with tits.

    It’s more than just Dragon Ball, though. He has a terrible habit of using the same or very similar faces for his human or mostly-humanoid characters across all the works he’s involved in. If you took just the faces of every Toriyama character and asked someone to identify them accurately, they’re going to have issues. Fortunately for him, since Dragon Ball was so wildly successful that Toriyama’s style is equally iconic, so nobody actually cares that Toriyama only has a handful of faces and that they end up copy-pasta’d across the works he’s involved in. I think a greater issue down the line is that Toriyama’s successor is just gonna be forced to emulate his art style after he passes away and it’s just gonna lead to even more unoriginal designs.
