Yes, exactly! That's what bugs me the most about Dragon Ball.

Re: What is your favorite track from Shunsuke Kikuchi?

Too damned many. But mostly earlier BGMs and variations on main themes.

Re: How did you decide/get your avatar?

I've got a panel from Peter Bagge's Neat Stuff. The character is Buddy Bradley, a despicably lovable slacker whose life is followed in Neat Stuff, Hate, and Hate Annual. All excellent underground comics from the 90s and 2000s.

Re: Does the sexualization of Bulma at the start of the series bother anyone?

It's a little strange in my opinion but it's basically cliche in anime. I mean, I'm only 17 so it doesn't affect me in that way but going forward it might make me more uncomfortable. If sexualization is tasteful and natural, then I don't have a problem with it, but if it's just done to turn fans on ...

Re: Dragon Ball's original ending is dark for a gag manga

Well, to be fair, Dragon Ball ceased to be a gag manga when Piccolo Daimao showed up and was steadily decreasing in humour even before then.

Re: How popular Dragon Ball in your country

There's a fanbase here in Canada but it's mostly people older than me. My generation (older teens) is the last to have grown up with DB, unfortunately. Plus, the fandom is significantly smaller in my generation so a lot of the people I talk to who know Dragon Ball are in their 20s or 30s. A friend ...

Re: What's the deal with these Earthlings?

It's not specified that anyone other than Bulma, Gohan, and Kuririn went far enough in space to encounter aliens. Since it's stated sometime in the early Namek Saga that Capsule Corp's space ships until then didn't go very far, it's unlikely that humans made contact with aliens before their trip. Wi...

Re: Do you think 2018 will be a great year for Dragon Ball?

It will be perfect if the Japanese audio of the old series is remastered so you can actually hear a clean recording and if Canadian networks pick up Super.

Re: Dr. Slump and Dragon Ball Crossovers

I wish Dr Slump had a chance to go international. It may be too late now. It got a look in French and Spanish-speaking countries and possibly some Asian countries but never cracked the English market. It's almost certainly too late now, as it's too old-looking to realistically air on modern kids' T...

Re: Toei Establishes Department Focused on Dragon Ball

Dragon Ball's not dormant. We're still getting games announced on a regular basis and DB Heroes is still big in Japan, as far as I'm aware. There's almost certainly potential for another series (and I'm honestly surprised Super isn't continuing considering how obsessed everyone is with it), plus the...

Re: Do the Canadian-French watch French-France dubbed Dragon Ball series/movies?

I would imagine the Quebecois watched the France French dub as there aren't any confirmed Canadian French dubs. There are a ton of rumours of these dubs but none have been confirmed.

Re: How come Dr. Slump the Anime Series wasn't successful anywhere than Japan?

Dr Slump's issue is that it came way before the dub era. Of course, it was likely available in the fansub tape era, but that period of anime fandom history seems to be overshadowed and I'm not aware if Dr Slump was popular with that generation. Anyway, Dr Slump didn't really become super popular (at...

Re: I want "Dr. Slump Discussion" and "Non-DB Akira Toriyama Discussion" subforums

Well if there's enough people that have read Dr Slump and other manga or played the games, I don't see why not. The only issue is that a lot of Toriyama's other stuff is hard to get a hold of or simply nonexistent in English so a lot of us might not be familiar with the stuff, though I'd love to be.

Re: English DB Manga in '99 NZ??

As far as I'm aware, the DB manga was not released by Viz until the early 2000s and at the very beginning it was released in expensive comic book format with 2 chapters per issue before switching to tankobon format and gaining popularity. No one here, to my knowledge, is aware of any pre-Viz English...
