Re: Is Dragon Ball GT canonical?

GT is not canon the creator Akira Toriyama has no real input in it and even referred to it as some non-canon side story it is objectively bad btw, anyone who thinks its good is just stupid some mad fools would say trump is a good president, same are GT-fans. i feel sorry for such dumb creatures.

Re: FUNimation provides closure for the Ultimate Uncut Special Edition cancellation

The actual Dragon Boxes themselves were premium products with the DB and DBZ boxes at roughly ¥100,000, and then GT and the movies each at ¥52,500. The individual DVDs broken out of those sets (released immediately afterward) were substantially cheaper and consumer-friendly than general releases. Ea...

Re: If Dragonball Z came back on TV would Bruce Faulconer Music come back?

People keep telling me they like the changed music... when I keep in turn telling them I understand they like the changed music and it's fantastic they like the changed music... but that's not the underlying point I've ever been making! Again, really, it's great if you like the replacement music, an...

Re: Is Dragon Ball GT canonical?

Well, yeah, I'm not about to get into a major thesis on the success and failure of American comic books and their adaptations just to compare with dumb ol' Dragon Ball. I agree with you, but I simultaneously don't think that diminishes any of my points. YOU may decide you like something enough to wa...

Re: Is Dragon Ball GT canonical?

I don't know why people put so much importance on canon that they would not watch something just because it's not officially considered part of the story? I don't know how you can NOT see it. The Dragon Ball franchise is huge and overwhelming. If someone wants to get into it, it's so much easier to...

Re: If Dragonball Z came back on TV would Bruce Faulconer Music come back?

Well what I mean is that, music in itself is very subjective. Like, we can look at how the dub changed the dialogue as something you can factually say is different because it's changing the story a bit and the characterization. Music in itself is something added later which the manga wasn't designe...

Re: What's so bad about 'Bulla?'

So why does nobody make a big deal out of Korin then? I've never seen people harp on it like they did with Hercule or Tien, or now with Bulla. Plenty of us did/have when appropriate. But, like with Bra, he so rarely shows up and is so rarely mentioned by the "I never watched Dragon Ball" ...

Re: What's so bad about 'Bulla?'

Why was Karin changed to Korin in the dub? My only guess is Karin sounds too feminine (similar to the name Karen for a girl in real life), but Korin is more masculine, or something. I think in this case it may have been to preserve the pun (Korin sounds like corn, while Karin doesn't). But that's n...

Re: If Dragonball Z came back on TV would Bruce Faulconer Music come back?

Cool, glad we're on the same page! I don't agree at all with "scored to the show" having any weight at all in this discussion of "accuracy". Sure, the Faulconer Productions team often scored new pieces of music directly to scenes of the show. So did the original Shuki Levy / Ron ...

Re: If Dragonball Z came back on TV would Bruce Faulconer Music come back?

So now with the assumption laid to rest, my response to him is not one without logic behind it. I'm curious to what makes one OST more "accurate" than another? Is Kai's inaccurate? See Kojiro's point. FUNimation's not translating and adapting the manga (that's Viz's job); they're translat...

Re: If Dragonball Z came back on TV would Bruce Faulconer Music come back?

What makes it more "accurate", per se? Dragon Ball originated from a manga without sound, and not only that, Kai uses a different OST and I wouldn't say that is any less "accurate". FUNimation does not actively partake in music replacement anymore. What they get is what they put...

Re: What about bringing back Cell for the tournament?

From a marketing perspective, Cell really isn't worthwhile here. We know that Toei's goal here is to indoctrinate new fans - while sure, appealing to old fans as well - to sell them nostalgia in another ten or twelve years. These new fans need THEIR OWN memories and sense of wonder to pander to late...

Re: What's so bad about 'Bulla?'

Actually, the more I think about it it's not that bad. Bulma's localized name isn't "Bloomers", maybe Bra's name being slightly different is okay. In her case, her name isn't the exact word it's based on: she's ブルマ ( bu - ru - ma ) rather than ブルマー ( bu - ru - maa ), the same way he's &qu...
