If a Dragon Ball anime were made today, would the first arc be rewritten?

If the Dragon Ball anime, or a "Kai" or "Brotherhood" type series, were made for DB today, would the first story arc need heavy rewriting around some of the heavier sexual jokes? How do you think it might be handled? And do you think the action elements of the early parts of the ...

I doubt he’d do Faulconer because that would just be more work for a Dub most people wouldn’t watch if they’re getting Recut. If done right, I'd totally give it a go on my second watch. I definitely wouldn't complain about it's absence or expect it to be a priority though. Every day I check this fo...

Re: Anyone else don't mind the Potaufeu episodes?

I think my main problem with it at the time was that it undermined the fake-Goku concept in the upcoming major arc by having an underwhelming fake-Vegeta sidestory immediately before it.

Re: Does Piccolo talk in a weird manner in JP?

This was a creative decision on behalf of Viz, I believe, and it was toned down a lot after a short while.

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 9/18/17!)

I always thought Goku was going through an internal struggle here. The rage of the Super Saiyan is within him, it's hard for him to keep calm and he acts out of spite towards Freeza. Goku is also in there, though. Sparing Freeza after all he did isn't something kid Goku would have done, but perhaps ...

Re: Introducing Somebody New To Dragon Ball

If someone I knew was watching the Funimation DB and DBZ dubs as their introduction to the series, I'd feel the need to constantly remind them "that super embarrassing thing isn't in the original Japanese, please don't think that's representative of the series I love - I think it's cringy too!&...

Re: Should the English "Bulma" have been "Blooma"?

I think that there's a bit too much of a focus on what the pun is supposed to be. "Kakarotto" is a pun on carrots, but should his name have been translated to "Carot?" Bulma's name was not exactly the Japanese word for "bloomers." For the sake of accuracy in translatin...

How do you feel about the Viz translation?

It might not be as literal as the Simmons subtitles and others that are out there, but reading through the manga again I can't help but think how much I enjoy the way this translation is done. Even at times when it seems to take some creative liberty, like translating the names of Baba's fighters as...

Re: Introducing Somebody New To Dragon Ball

The first episode of Kai undermines the reveal about Goku's origins. That's because it was being presented as its own thing rather than a sequel/continuation of DB so they had to find a way to start it without the viewer feeling the need to watch what came before. Oh yeah, I understand why, and I a...

Re: Favorite Filler Moments

I have mixed feelings about most of the filler. I always like the idea, if not the execution, of the filler that expands on existing stories and fills in gaps, rather than dragging things out. Threading the Pilaf gang through the first arc, Goku's solo training while travelling the world, the heaven...

Re: Dub lines and even aspects that you like.

That's a good point, a lot of the dialogue and delivery in the Dragon Ball is actually pretty funny and it's a bit more appropriate place for Funimation's "punching up" of the script. Speaking of that, does anyone have a link to that scene where Roshi is teaching Goku how to read and make...

Re: Introducing Somebody New To Dragon Ball

If I were introducing someone to DB these days I'd start with IAmTheMilkman's DB Recut then Kai with Yamamoto, since the biggest thing that seems to put people off is how slow it can be at times, but Kai's Kikuchi placement is... Not the best the series can be, let's say. Sometimes it's possible wit...

Re: Dub lines and even aspects that you like.

"AND I DONT CARE IF YOU'RE A MILLION TIMES STRONGER THAN ME" Also, I don't know why but one that always made me laugh much more than the Japanese counterpart was from Roshi in episode 3 of Dragon Ball. Where in the original he thought to himself something along the lines of "I don't ...

Should the English "Bulma" have been "Blooma"?

The main argument I can see for pronouncing the name "Bulma" in English is that this is how it's written on her first outfit in Dragon Ball, but "well come", "Gokou" and "Klillin" have also been written on things on the series if I remember correctly. The othe...

Re: Would you want a full reanimation to combine DB and Z in a single series?

In Toei's current condition, no, I wouldn't. Besides the production itself being very poor, I don't think DB works without Minoru Maeda, Shunsuke Kikuchi and the rest of the members of the original staff. I mean, DB would never being so popular in the whole world if the OST, for example, wasn't the...

Don't blame the times, all of those super hero cartoons and johnny quest/transformers cartoons were all about selling toys back in the 90's. It was so bad that T.V.

Re: show do not tell. db super writers need to understand that

The writers don't have full control. The series director doesn't have full control. They're pawns of shitty corporate overlords who believe there is a specific way to handle their hugely popular property. This is exactly what's wrong with Super. The capitalistic, toy-selling, robotic, no-love produ...
