Re: What was your first experience with the Japanese version and what was your first impression?

I really wouldn't be able to say what my first reaction was to seeing it in Japanese, because that was twenty years ago and my mind is empty so I can fill it with dreams. I'm fairly sure I didn't have any "negative" reaction; how could I, when I was finally getting peeks at what seemed lik...

Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

"Gross" in this case does not mean "icky"; it means exaggerated and out-of-control. That a basic understanding about copyright and intellectual property is so nonexistent in so many fandoms is a huge problem! Your "I say this is fair use so it is" alongside the previous...

Re: Random subtitle question, Vegeta calls Kakarot "Goku"?

Yeah, they're likely carrying forward all of the subtitle scripts as-is from release to release at this point. It's not really a good usage of Steve's time to review the same string of hundreds of episodes year after year after year. Kai necessitated a review by the very nature of things being cut u...

Re: About Hit's plan

This seems like an appropriate comment/conversation for the respective episode discussion thread where this material happens. Additionally, as a little FYI to help out some in your fandom travels, there's no need to write the character's name out as "Hitto"; it's a clear play on him being ...

Re: Dragon Ball with English subs and Japanese title cards?

FUNimation's original two-disc sets of the first TV series contained the Japanese title cards, did they not? Weren't they still doing alternate angles for that stuff back then? Obviously the first thirteen episodes are unavailable in that format from that run of production, but you're otherwise good...

Re: Is the Contact submission form actually working?

We've pretty consistently had trouble with it. Sometimes things come through fine, sometimes they get cut off, and other times they don't come through at all. I've changed that up so it's a little more traditional with a straight-up regular email address there now. This is definitely the better way ...

Re: How much influence does Toyotaro have over Toriyama now?

It's pretty much impossible to answer this question comprehensively. We really don't know every in-and-out of the production process, and we rarely get truly-candid thoughts from people. What we do *DO* know is: ⋅ Toriyama wanted to see Toyotaro use more diverse angles in his drawings; tha...

Only in the manga, because "Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan" had never actually been spoken aloud by characters in the movie or series.

Your point/statements were not the only ones being made, and they are not the only ones I'm addressing. Furthermore, site growth (post-dot-com-crash recovery when we relaunched in 2003) was steadily rising and was super-healthy all the way up through our Daizenshuu EX / Kanzentai merger in 2012, and...

I take issue with this bizarre assertion or even implication that somehow we wouldn't be able to survive as a website — either from a community discussion standpoint or more importantly from a content generation standpoint — without new material. This shows such a gross, naive, and quite frankly ign...

This is still what it's called, written as, and referred to in every official merchandise and production capacity other than in-show/comic dialog.

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" (PS4/XBO/PC, 2018, Arc System Works) Official Discussion Thread

When will we know the final roster? There's no way to answer that question. Obviously someone will do the data-mining the instant they can get a disc in-hand, and there's a good chance we'll know the full roster ahead of the game's release anyway via standard promotional fanfare. Will it be a month...

You want even more of them? Between the sideline chatter, the GoDs, and the Zenos only around 30% of the UI Goku vs Jiren fight was them actually fighting. Why would you want to take up even more time to see the Zenos saying the same thing over and over? It's funny and cute the first or second time...
