Re: Would you like to see the Dragon Ball Franchise on Netflix, (Even if it was redubbed)

Kai was a good excuse to put in a more faithful rendition of the script, but for it to happen with OG Dragon Ball it would also need to get the Kai treatment, and with so much happening with Super I just can't see Toei bothering with it.

Re: Does the original Dragonball need a reboot?

Agreed with Robo, the OG Dragon Ball is perfectly fine as it is. In fact it's arguably in better shape than Z because while it does have filler, the filler overall does a much better job at integrating itself into the story than Z's filler did.

Re: Viz reprinting the DB and DBZ manga box sets!

Oooh awesome! I wonder if it'll be closer to the Kanzenban release? Hopefully they'll revise that awful ViZ DBZ logo at the very least.

Re: Orange brick covers

Agree with all of these mostly. Mercenary Tao instead of Commander Red would be better I think l. And GT box 2 should either be Omega or stay Gogeta I was considering Tao, however I erred to Red simply because he's the big villain of the arc with a lot more screentime than Tao (Korin was another op...

Re: Orange brick covers

I love the idea of getting Tien on the cover of Db, and young Goku on GT set . Does anybody have any insight on who chooses the cover art? No idea who chooses the characters, but I imagine they had a modus of "Include all the popular main characters", which is why Roshi appears on a boxse...

My personal order for all three sets would have been thus: BB1: Kid Goku BB2: Roshi BB3: Commander Red BB4: Tien BB5: Piccolo Jr. --- OB1: Vegeta OB2: Krillin OB3: Frieza OB4: Trunks OB5: Perfect Cell OB6: SS1 Gohan OB7: Videl (or Mr. Satan) OB8: Gotenks OB9: Kid Buu --- GB1: Young Goku GB2: SS4 Veg...

Re: Dragon Ball Z - Season 9, Does It Look Better on DVD or Blu-ray?

I think they look fine. I think that in some inexplicable way, Funimation did a better job on the Boo arc Blu-ray remaster than Toei did (Kai). Like a lot better. Like I popped in the Final Chapters Blu-ray for the first time and it hit me just how bad it looked out the gate without me even analyzi...

Re: Funimation and swearing

I think with Kai it was part of their overall movement to have the writing be closer to the original script. Remember that Kai also had a censored Nicktoons dub for that broadcast.

Re: What to do about Yamcha's characterization? Be Peaceful.

I love Yamcha and personally I don't see what's funny about the meme of his death and why it's funny. I'm a dub fan just as much as a sub fan but I will admit I never see the japanese only fans making memes like that. There was a tie in event in Japan for the movie where fans could pose as dead Yam...

Re: What to do about Yamcha's characterization? Be Peaceful.

My only issue with the loveable loser thing is that it partly comes off as Krillin's gimmick as well. Yeah sure two characters can wear the same hat but one its certainly gonna shine more on one than the other. Since he's used in the story more, Krillin has more moments of "damn I feel sorry f...

Superman is a metaphor for immigration and growing up in a foreign country and embracing its values. Not sure how that metaphor has been lost.

Re: Would you like to see the Dragon Ball Franchise on Netflix, (Even if it was redubbed)

Kai would be a neat option on the side but there's little point in providing a Japanese track for that. Hard disagree. Just because dub-fans probably get more out of Kai compared to Z than sub-fans do, doesn't mean Kai in Japanese is an unsalvageable trainwreck or something. It serves its purpose, ...
