Re: Episode #0461 (02 December 2018)

Stellar episode! I think you guys seemed to hit on something pretty important early on when it came to spoilers for the movies back then vs now, which was the content of the movies themselves. These were just 'come along and enjoy the flick' films, which didn't really require knowledge of the series...

Re: A collection of screenshots for every 3D DBZ game. Which one has the best graphics?

Burst Limit was peak Dimps. They've only gone downhill since then, which is a crying shame cause Burst Limit was gorgeous . Shame we'll likely never see it running 60fps. Super DBZ will always hold a special place in my heart, and I do think it has the strongest aesthetic of the bunch. Similar to my...

Went in blind and got pretty emotional when I heard Jeff enter and realised what was going on. Thanks for bringing it back guys, can't believe it's been five years. Reminded me of just how much I miss the old podcast content.

Re: The original Super Saiyan revealed!

Man, Toriyama has a really bad habit of just dishing out lore which could be cool with context, but by itself is just jarring and feels contrived. But even with context, I'd struggle to swallow this pill, feels like a lot of mental legwork for the U6 Saiyans/Goten and Trunks to make sense. Not to me...

Re: Super Episode 116 (19 November 2017)

frankly if you weren't fond of this episode Super may not be the series for you. Not to say it was flawless but it certainly captures Super at its best. I think this about sums it up for me. I'm just not with what Super is doing, and no matter how much I try to like it, I just can't breakthrough, e...

Modern Dragon Ball sound design - Nozawa age denial?

This is a bit of a weird topic, but whenever I drop in to see what's going on in Super, I can't help but notice. I think that the lack of imaginative fight choreography factors into this, but has anyone else been baffled by the weird amount of the monotone 'atatata' in Dragon Ball Super when compare...

Re: Do you think DBS is a worthy continuation of DB and DBZ?

It's a tough one, because my relationship with the series has shifted upon multiple reads. Is it a worthy continuation of the Boo arc? In my opinion, sure. It kinda discards the whole power-scaling thing the series had going on, which was genuinely consistent until now, but if you can get over that ...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" (PS4/XBO/PC, 2018, Arc System Works) Official Discussion Thread

But what's the point of being disappointed at SSB's inclusion when it didn't come at the cost of a new character, like Gero, getting in? Technically, 16 and 18 were the last two characters revealed to us, and they're the ones who came at the expense of another character. Same reason people don't fe...

Really bummed out that we're already getting re-used character models as new characters. It's too early to be taking the wind out of my hype-sails, Arc Systems.

Re: The stakes couldn't be higher yet there is no tension at all

Did Cell teach you nothing? My issue here too. As much as people love to say that Goku lives for the thrill of the fight and puts it above all else, it just isn't the case. We've seen evidence to the contrary. Thing is, Toriyama even gets involved and people quote him to justify Goku's behavior, bu...

Re: What made you switch over to the Japanese version?

We got a second version of Budokai 3 over here, the Limited Edition version which allowed you to play the game with the Japanese voices. Despite having played games with the Japanese voices before this, for some reason this one really struck me, and I sorta fell in love with them. Started to transit...

Re: Worst post-revival retcon?

Has to be Beerus as a whole for me. Not only destroying Freeza's character by making him destroy the planet of the Saiyans on an order as opposed to paranoia from hearsay, but just forcing Freeza to be under the foot of Beerus to begin with. It never felt natural to me, and felt like a forced retcon...

Re: When DBZ aired in the UK

I remember when it was airing on CNX they decided to use the FUNI dub. After about two weeks they switched back to Ocean. I think it was due to people hating it. I wasn't able to get used to Fat Buu's high pitched voice. CNX was a cool channel, gone too soon. I remember this being fucking jarring. ...

Re: Who really is the definitive Son Goku?

The definitive Gokuu will always be Nozawa, there's never gonna be any (legitimate) dispute there. She's been there since day 1 of the anime, and is pretty much a direct translation of the character in the manga. Schemmel just doesn't capture the character, never has. He's come close and has started...

Re: Is the 'Majin Vegeta arc' one of the greatest in the series?

The number of pages has nothing to do with it It does if it's this significant character moment in a series where battles primarily = character growth. besides, I watch the anime and it's an intense hard hitting fight. There's more meat to the fight in the anime. The manga takes what is a significa...
