It's presented as a gag, and as such shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Re: Unshō Ishizuka, second voice of Mr. Satan, has passed away due to esophageal cancer.

Dang. I just recently read up about this guy, too, surprised that he voiced one of my favorite Pokémon (Onix).

May he rest in peace.

Re: Put your false Dragon Ball memories and confusions here

Let's see. When I first started watching the show regularly, Goku had just turned Super Saiyan, so my early misconceptions stem mostly from around that part. - Before this, I overheard some classmates talking about the show and they mentioned a "Freeza" whom I assumed was some kind of ice ...

This was a delightful thing to listen to. At risk of sounding like a brainless follower, I agreed with most if not all the things you said. I very much feel you on the whole "I am a massive fan of [thing] and I want to somehow contribute something to its fandom" (I'm still trying to figure...

Re: Your top 10 favorite story arcs in the DB franchise

My list includes only arcs from the original manga (and the first anime adaptation of said manga); I see everything else as bonus material, and whether I enjoy that material or not, none of it will ever recapture the magic of the original run. So, without further ado: 10. DRAGON BALL HUNT From Goku ...

Re: Episode #0448 (01 July 2018)

Very informative podcast episode for someone who hasn't bothered to keep up with Heroes over the years. I'm not really interested in the promotional anime either, but one thing I do really like about it is Kappei Yamaguchi joining the all-star Dragon Ball cast, as L from Death Note is my number one ...

Re: If Disney does make their own live action Dragon Ball films, what would be your hopes?

I have little to no faith in any live action Dragon Ball film ever doing the source material justice, but if it really has to happen again, all I ask for is that Jackie Chan plays Jackie Chun.

Re: Favorite dragon ball villains

The first ones that come to mind are Freeza and Piccolo Daimaô, probably because they were scary . First-form Cell, too. I love the horror-movie vibe around his first appearance. Sadly that goes away once the mystery is explained. Maybe it would've been better if Cell couldn't talk, at least in his ...

Gohan or Kuririn, probably. We don't see them "parenting" much, but they seem like incredibly gentle, caring fathers.

I remember DaizenshuuEX and Kanzentai co-existing. Hah. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that there are (probably lots of) people here who don't remember this. Feels like just yesterday to me. In fact, I remember thinking the merger was an April Fools joke initially, since it hap...

Hey, congrats on as-many-episodes-as-the-original-anime! I love that, even after nearly 20 years of being a Dragon Ball fan, I'm still learning new things about it on a regular basis. Mostly thanks to you fine folks running this Kanzenshuu place. Seriously, words can't describe how much I appreciate...

Re: Dragon Ball Z - Episodes 81-85 - Discussion Thread [Rewatch - Week 17]

So, I am about 60 episodes behind your rewatch... and I can't even pretend I'll be able to catch up. But just a question: in episode 21, did they miss or accidentally excise the scene where Gohan gets Piccolo's outfit instead of Kame-style-with-Ma gi? I swear it was made a big deal about and anothe...

Re: How would you feel if Toriyama killed your favorite character permanently?

I mean, I like characters like Dabra and the Ginyu squad, and they're pretty much dead permanently. I would've liked it if they'd stuck around a bit longer because they had a lot of unexplored potential as characters. My actual favorites include Tenshinhan and Muten Rôshi, whom I guess you could con...

Re: Did the spirit bomb damage Frieza that much?

From the looks of him, Freeza probably didn't take all that much damage from it. He only lost part of his tail but looked mostly unscathed otherwise. Especially compared to Saiyan arc Vegeta, who looked a complete wreck after getting hit by a much smaller Genki-Dama (though he was still able to cont...

Re: I think it's time to admit Gohan is a terrible character

People complaining that a character doesn't act exactly the way they think they want does not mean that character is terrible. I don't think it's a healthy mindset to have eyes only for what a character is ("What's his battle power?" "What forms does he have?" "Who can he be...

I just gained a burst of appreciation for voice actor Kenji Utsumi. I only ever knew him as the voice of Recoom, but I just learned he also played Shenlong, the Tenkaichi Budokai announcer, and Commander Red. Not what you would call main characters, but still of vital importance in the series. With ...

A while back I started a similar project, where I would go through the manga counting every time a character appears in a panel, and how many text bubbles they have. ...I got about 20 chapters in, and by now it's been months since I last touched it. I'm insane enough to start projects like this, but...
