Re: DBZ is still DB

Except the silliness in DBZ are bit pieces No more than the Daimou arc . The Daimao arc is much more heavily slanted towards "wacky", while including some serious bits like Kuririn and Muten Roshi's deaths etc. Except just the opposite. The whole ordeal takes a serious tone and slant with...

Re: DBZ is still DB

I’m 100 percent sure if 1. Toei didn’t rebrand the anime from Radditz onward as Z (which wasnt how the manga did it!) And 2. If Funimation didn’t, more or less, skip ahead to Z We wouldn’t even be having this discussion. The tone and feel of course gradually changes into something more serious (whil...

Re: Pedophilia in Dragon Ball

[ The rice cooker, the gags in the airship with Pilaf & Co., his campy personality, etc. etc. make him sillier than Freeza. What about his personality was camp? How are the gags with Pilaf and co any different than the Ginyu Force? The fact that he was trapped in an electric rice cooker and he ...

Re: Pedophilia in Dragon Ball

How was Piccolo Daimao portrayed any more silly than Freeza or Buu? There was nothing about him that was portrayed in a explicitly silly manner. The electric rice cooker and Piccolon day was a bit camp and farcical but so is naming your warriors after vegetables and a androgynous alien with a noblew...

Re: Pedophilia in Dragon Ball

Dragon Ball Z is a very much different story, style and genre than Dragon Ball. . It’s not though. For one there’s not one loooong story but multiple story arcs. The style isn’t really any different it just developed and refined itself over time. There really isn’t much to distinguish the style and...

Re: Was grandpa Gohan meant to be perceived as a pedophile?

Wasn’t the implication when we saw Grandpa Gohan in the Baba arc that he liked the women like Roshi?

I don’t think Goku sleeping on his grandpa’s lap was intended to be sexual.

". While I didn't think that Sonic SATAM was the greatest animated series ever myself it's still a decent romp overall for what it was aiming for based on said comic, i certainly think it was pulled off better as a series than the full on Looney Tunes-esque gag fest that the "Adventures O...

Re: Why do English-speaking fans belittle the non-FUNimation dubs?

The showrunner of the series outright said very recently, in response to someone pointing this exact thing out, that this wasn't the network's doing, it was a deliberate thing on the part of the creative team. Perhaps it was done with an idea of trying to keep things kids-safe, but there was never ...

Re: Why do English-speaking fans belittle the non-FUNimation dubs?

Spider-Man: TAS was a poorly animated, absurdly over-censored, hamfistedly-scripted bastardization of the Marvel Comics source material (for that matter, so was the X-Men cartoons series: and I say that as someone who is as die-hard a lifelong X-Men fan as you'll ever come across). The cheap animat...

Re: Why do English-speaking fans belittle the non-FUNimation dubs?

That's another huge exaggeration. I can name several Saturday morning cartoons in North America that were very sophisticated and had a continuous storyline. Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Sonic The Hedgehog, Batman: The Animated Series, TMNT, just to name a few. Haven’t seen the Sonic show I assu...

Re: Should I let my 9 year old watch DBZ?

Black’s redesign is not in any shape or form “censorship” Now if the movie was nothing but recut footage of episodes from the tv series and they went out of their way to redraw Staff Officer Blac...

[ Everything! That’s incredibly broad They’ve already done it twice and everything was wrong.

What specifically about Dragon Ball wouldn’t fit live action? Certain characters that may be harder to adapt in live action like Oolong and Puar are pretty expendable and could easily be omitted.

Re: Should I let my 9 year old watch DBZ?

There’s hardly any thing explicit and graphic in Dragon Ball’s nudity less you count seeing Goku’s junk way too many times. Roshi and Oolong’s behavior (especially Roshi if you’re watching the English dub a lot of Oolong’s perversion was curbed) is definitely problematic but as long as your 9 year o...

Re: Why do English-speaking fans belittle the non-FUNimation dubs?

Yeah, and for a long time a rather vocal portion of the Ocean fanbase was VERY overzealous and hostile when it came to that dub, going out of their way to pick fights with the Funi fanbase. Particularly on YouTube. Really? Because I’ve seen pretty much the exact opposite. Ocean dub fans being in th...

Re: Why do English-speaking fans belittle the non-FUNimation dubs?

. Obviously the fact that the FUNi cast has a complete dub for 1-291 gives it more of a draw than the Ocean cast. . I mean I get the appeal of a consistent cast from episode 1 to episode 291 which you’re getting with the remastered Funimation of course. But it’s still not a consistent product. You ...
