Re: Man of Steels fight scenes were inspired by DBZ

Nice to get confirmation of this. The fight scenes in Man of Steel me have always got my DBZ senses going.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

I haven't been following the Dragon Ball Super dub at all, but getting Brian Drummond to play Copy Vegeta is pretty amazing.

This is really sad, losing one of the originals. RIP Hitomi.

Re: Dragon Ball Z UK Magazine Game Reviews

Wow, talk about a blast from the past, I had that issue of Gamesmaster magazine with the Budokai 1 review. Unfortunately, my copy is long gone.

Thanks for reviving that memory.

Re: Super Episode 105 (27 August 2017)

Dragon Ball Super is a curious beast. A lot of the time, it feels underwhelming, but it has been fun having new Dragon Ball material to watch every week, which as a whole might not always live up to expectations, but is littered with nice little character moments that makes the surrounding mediocre ...

Re: Dragon Ball gets some love at Wrestlemania, AGAIN!

This almost made staying up until close to 5am watching Wrestlemania worthwhile. Almost. A great moment in a show lacking many memorable ones.

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

Just came from a screening of this here in the UK. It's pretty surreal watching DB on the big screen after 15 years of being a fan of the series. Up until the last few years, never thought such a thing would be possible but here we are. Decent attendance too, I would say my screening was at least tw...

Re: What is it that allows DBZ to appeal to older audiences?

I think the aging of the characters is a big thing. They almost feel like legitimate old friends that you've grown up with that you don't necessarily need to be in constant contact with, but you can dip back in with and guarantee to have a good time. Plus I don't think you ever really outgrow watchi...

Lord Jesus! I'm a year away from being 30 but it's ridiculous the sheer emotion hearing this news has brought out. Watching Battle of Gods again a few weeks ago reminded me how much I still love the series, so the timing of the announcement is perfect. I really really like the Star Wars franchise an...

Re: Happy 15th Anniversary to UK Dragon Ball

What fun ride that run was. I started watching in August 2000 when we were in the Freeza saga when Freeza was fighting in his second or third form. It was a bit of a cluster f*** at times with the dub switching and channel swaps. But great memories overall, and those adverts really brings it back. A...

Re: Goku as the Main Character

I feel Goku is managed pretty well all in all by Toriyama as the main character. The first part of DB is undoubtedly Goku's story, both in terms of focus and actually doing most of the leg work to carry the plot along but by the time the Z-era arrived, Toriyama was pretty comfortable with having oth...

Re: Buu Saga Kai

I'm strangely looking forward to this. I won't be following it every week or anything, but I watched some of the Cell saga in Kai form not too long ago, and really enjoyed it, even with the repetitive re-arranged Kikuchi score. The new score has me more than a little curious.
