Re: Is there anything we can do to get Dragon Box - The Movies released in region 1?

(Does anyone have actual proof though?). The only "proof" are some lines in FUNimation's original press release which state things like "the entire Dragon Ball Z anime series, episodes and films" and more specifically "the entire 291 episode television series and all 13 of ...

Re: "Zenkai" - 全開 or 全快? (Also, questions on origins of the term in Western fandom)

For what it's worth, I don't see any reference to "Zenkai" in this context on alt.fan.dragonball. Everyone's confusing the "Z" in "Dragon Ball Z" as coming from "Zenkai Power" for a few years, and every once in a while someone brings up the meaning of "Ze...

Re: Is Dragon Ball GT canonical?

Although it's clearly being avoided, it's necessary to point out and to consider a factor that people just want to be stubborn about this subject. Imagine a reality where even though it's not officially explicit, the majority would agree that canon is what the author created and works he accepted o...

Your bump-posts are deleted because there's no need to do so; if someone is going to answer, they're going to do so regardless of whether you keep asking. If anything, a continued ask works against you.

Re: Is Dragon ball GT Canon?

Dragon Ball GT was an official continuation of the original story created by the same team at Toei Animation, with early character design involvement from Akira Toriyama, which aired on television between 1996 and 1997. Its in-universe story began five years after the original manga/TV series ended...

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

They at least should be given a reason as to why a box set they spent a huge ton of their hard earned cash on got canned. They were given a reason : FUNimation canned them in favor of a condensed release with an internally-easier-to-produce production process (one that, let's be honest, catapulted ...

Re: Does Nintendo Switch mark the end of handheld specific Dragon Ball games?

Something that's been on my mind, as well. Thanks for outlining it so well. With 20+ million units sold each in Japan, America, and Europe, there's still a decent-sized 3DS base for them to market to, especially in these early Switch days where it's primarily the Nintendo enthusiast (and presumably ...

Re: Why is Rock music in DB so frowned upon here?

I agree that it comes down to what era the series was produced in. Alternative Rock/ Nu Metal didn't pervade Anime soundtracks until early 2000, so technically anything produced before then would sound awkward. FUNimation was simply the last one to drunkenly stumble on the bandwagon, by which point...

Re: How much of Yamamoto's score for Kai was stolen?

I actually have a theory of why Kenji Yamamoto did what he did: He IS actually capable of composing original music on his own. But when he first auditioned for Toei, none of his original compositions were approved by them. So he did the only thing he could do, and, well, we all know how that turned...

Re: Pre-Battle of Gods, was it always implied that the Z-fighters were God-tier?

Yeah, Goku was god-tier when he literally trained with God (well, his attendant) before the 23rd Budokai. And then again when he trained with the Lord of Worlds (the Northern Kaio) during the Saiyan arc. And then again when Kaioshin couldn't believe what he was seeing during the 25th Budokai onward....

Re: Why is Rock music in DB so frowned upon here?

I've always wondered this myself. Especially considering a lot of the music from the Budokai game series is essentially plagiarised rock music, yet still seems to be very praised around here. I think it's a case of people just disliking replacement scores in general, with the Budokai series music g...

Re: How much of Yamamoto's score for Kai was stolen?

We have no idea, because Yamamoto is never going to say, and Toei probably doesn't know themselves. They threw the baby out with the bathwater. The ones we know about are the ones that Dragon Ball fans who happened to be watching Kai who also happened to be aware of those specific other songs just s...

Re: Saga Continues Toy Line

I think I was visiting family in Virginia at the time when I bought them. Might have been 1997 by that point. Again, this was while the show was still in syndication from 1996-1998. Irwin didn't come on the scene until FUNimation brought things in-house in 1998. A post I wrote in 2000 says for that ...
