Re: Funi's renaming of the Z movies have caused this issue...

Rocky Balboa Lots of properties do this to make the entry feel more accessible and less intimidating to those jumping in; no "Wait do I need to watch the five previous films to get this?" effect. Star Wars has infamously done this by excising the episode numbers from the marketed titles t...

Re: How do the Z Broly movies connect with the Super Broly movie?

The Broly in the Super movie is a completely new character, so there won't be any need to watch the previous Broly movie in order to understand him because he'll be introduced for the very first time. However as a history lesson for what the old version was like, yeah, all three. Oddly, it may be an...

Re: Should Henrique Feist be banned from dubbing Dragon Ball?

It's a highly disappointing opinion to hear him have, but it isn't worth banning him from voicing the character.

Re: Episode #0452 (12 August 2018)

I was super-torn on the story modes for FighterZ. On the one hand, the endless slog of fighting Schindler's List clones was a terrible way to pad out the combat, and the animation in the cutscenes was so far below anything in the actual fights that I felt like I was playing a Telltale game. On the ...

Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

4k is pointless for anime. it doesnt get much better then 1080p unless you want super sharp artificial pq if that makes sense of course only if sitting range is correct. would not look good. imo even 1080p can appear to sharp for anime maybe I'm just old . Even FUNimation's DBZ cropped series on Bl...

Re: Is Goku x Chi-Chi a total sham of a relationship?

Probably also worth noting that, since Toriyama doesn't really like writing any kind of romance, he never really covers it to begin with. Many loving relationships in Dragon Ball seem to suffer from a lack of decent exposure, not just Goku/Chi-Chi. Vegeta/Bulma for example happens almost entirely of...

Re: Chapter Title Pages in Viz' Version of the Manga Confusion

While it isn't entirely relevant, I would like to drop in that, excepting instances of using title page art for the covers, the contents or some "divider" pages, the ViZ Full Colour releases don't feature the title pages anywhere.

Re: How many episodes did your country air every week?

It's so amazing to think that a TV series was cranking out a "brand new" episodes every weekday back then. Does that happen at all now? That was like the Toonami norm with all of their properties. I don't know about whether or not Reboot or the other shows were basically reruns through To...

I wonder what would happen if Funimation'd use it without asking.

They'd probably lose the Dragon Ball license forever.

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

Even though this comparison above is between Last House and I believe Toei's staff, it does show that the character designs differ greatly. Yamamuro's designs have the face round out like a sphere despite human faces not being that round. Even though the Maeda era here is represented by Last House-...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

I can kinda see his late-game stiffness starting to appear, personally. Compare Gohan's hair to how Toriyama did it, the spikes feel quite stubby: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/guides/manga/chp/titles/lg/404_fc.png?x32666 Still some great artwork though, Frieza in particular looks incredible.

I'd say it matters a little in this case. My point wasn't necessarily directed at anyone that posted in this thread but at how this aspect of his character is regarded by the fandom at large and it really has led to some confusion it seems - Funimation having Piccolo Jr speak as if he really is the...
