Re: Do you feel that filler hurts or helps the story as a whole?

Filler helps when it adds something new. Extra adventures, slice of life episodes and so on, with some notable exceptions like the Namek stuff, really do help flesh out the story and the world. This benefit is more than cancelled out by the type of filler that sees fights drag on and on and on, with...

How would you feel if Goku's outfit had varied more?

Goku's orange and blue outfit is completely iconic. I can't imagine say the Freeza saga without it, even though he had no reason to be wearing a Turtle-style uniform at any point in Z. I wouldn't have minded though there'd been more variety and casual clothing when he wasn't preparing to go into a b...

Re: DB's ending

BoG would have made a great ending in my opinion. Goku can't defeat this new opponent even with his ridiculous new power up, and finds out there are many people out there stronger than him. After all, that's always been one of the central themes of Dragon Ball. Maybe cap it off with him meeting his ...

Re: Dialecticalballz

I am quite a fan of political/philosophical Dragon Ball shitposting. These are couple of favourites of mine https://scontent-lht6-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/22554773_484912448544972_7861968999059584125_n.jpg?oh=3969c6b8b8c58e65da460584748273bb&oe=5AA9501E https://scontent-lht6-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31....

Re: Akira Toriyama named in Paradise Papers leak

I really dislike this sort of thing, the well-off actively trying to avoid contributing to their society. Toriyama has never exactly claimed to be a moral character, though, so I can't say I'm surprised. No more surprised than if I saw "Akira Toriyama questioned over upskirt video incident".

Re: Would you change the end?

I've never really liked EoZ as an ending, always preferring the GT ending and even BoG as a superior note to leave the series on. It's not so much Goku flying off on a new adventure as that whole epilogue section feeling... just off. Really, Battle of Gods leaving it on the note of "There are 1...

Re: DB - A Superhero Story?

The characters aren't superheroes in the traditional sense, but they can be considered superheroes by circumstance. They're mostly decent guys who when the world is in danger want to do so something about it, just like the vast majority of people would, and since they're in a position to be able to ...

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

My first experience was likely checking out a few episodes of Z online, and my reaction was "this is so dated and cheesy, a lot of the music reminds me of a really old cliché horror film". After reading the manga, though, I couldn't go back to the dub, and I watched the series in Japanese ...

Re: Are your non-Kanzenshuu friends into Dragon Ball?

A lot of people my age, who I met at uni or even just at the pub, are familiar with DBZ and have fond memories of it from back in the day, even if they aren't still fans now. It is pretty cool how many times I've been in town, in places frequented mostly by people in their '20s, and heard people tal...

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: 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: 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...

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.
