Dragon Ball watch through or read through?

I was wondering if people would be interested in going through a Dragon Ball watch through or read through together. Basically we'd watch one episode or read one chapter a week then we would discuss it together in one large thread. We could even do two threads for both the anime and the manga if there is enough interest. I feel like this could be a way to spike up some activity. A lot of us are pretty busy, but I think one chapter/episode a week should be pretty manageable.

Thoughts, suggestions?

I think it's a neat idea. The only Dragon Ball section that gets decent activity nowadays is DBS (and even it is far more dead than it would have been a few years ago). Dragon Ball/Z Discussion is almost like a desert. Also, it's been pretty long since I last went trough the series, so I'd definitely be down for a rewatch/reread.

The only difficulty is the amount of episodes/chapter the series has. It would take ages.

Is that really a bad thing? And we could always do multiple chapters/episodes and still do once a week too. Like for manga maybe a volume a week, for anime maybe a disc which is about 7 episodes.

No, but you may lose some people along the way. I think if you can do 7 episodes a week consistently you'd be fine. Some people may have to watch two in one day or whatnot to get caught up, but it'd work.

Also, the manga's pacing is pretty brisk. It's not too hard to find time to read at least one volume per week even if you are a busy person.

Iíd be up for this. Maybe we can skype call or something while we watch it together too. Kinda like the podcast but cooler.

If you can get this running, good on you. However, this has been tried before and failed, just a fair warning.

I've always thought this would be a good idea. I wouldn't do it myself (only recently finished reading Dragon Ball and wouldn't be interested in watching it), but hopefully this takes off.

I worry about people talking over each other during it and it just becoming a constant noise of people talking while DBS is in the background. Some people talk more than others.

I don't think it would work unless we were on reddit which seems to be fine for rereads.

I'd be interested in rereading it, this sounds like a pretty fun idea.

It takes a mere second for treasure to turn to trash.

Re-reading is a decent option. I own the manga and while it's not allowed to link to manga chapters online, there's nothing from stopping you from finding 'em quite easily on your own. ;)

As for the episodes... bit tricky. I never actually saw them all and I'm not sure where I could, sans illegal methods. If you want to try it out, I'm sure it would be interesting. It would allow people to break things down on a more micro level.

Though, I agree with Curtis. A chapter/episode a week would take... forever. A whole volume and it might take only a month and a half or so. But I assume there's some middle ground that can be found that covers enough, but not too much, and will last a decent amount of time and also conclude in a reasonable period. Losing people along the way is bound to happen - or for them to simply disappear and reappear as they catch up to the episodes/chapters/discussions.

Skype is ancient and dead. :p Discord would work fine in terms of discussing it via voice, though, there'd be issues of talking over it if it were done together. And it wouldn't really be promoting activity if all the discussion was had in voice. If a transcript could be made and posted, that would be interesting. Like, speech to text (that doesn't suck). Unfortunately, I can't really think of a way to do that. A brainstorming session could make this viable. Hell, RPing never worked for this forum countless times in the past. With some enthusiasm, structure, persistence & a small yet dedicated community, it was the largest non-Dragon Ball related area in 2017. Getting bigger by the day, too.

So I'm not adverse to this at all, but, I think there are a few roadblocks that would need to be addressed along the way and before beginning.
