Re: The "Makankōsappō"...How WOULD you localize that?

Demonic Beam Fire would be a sweet translation. I just put together suggestions here and what the original Ocean dub had for the attack name. Fire sounds really cool when shouted out, especially when Scott McNeil does it :lol:

To be fair, "Beam Cannon Fire" was a decent stand in.

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

Oof... Yamamuro's latest work is truly awful. And yes objectively it is incorrect. The fusion dance one has shading all over the place that makes no sense: Goku's shading on his hair has light coming from underneath while Vegeta's lighting comes from above.... awful. He's got to be phoning it in by...

Re: Toei poll "Favorite Dragon Ball Movie of All Time"

I disagree with that list, quite a lot actually. So I guess the general fanbase is pretty much bust with anything without Vegeta eh? DBZ movies 1-3 are generally really great with cool locations and interesting villains. I think DBZ movie 1 is the spotlight for the pre-Vegeta films but also all film...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

Also MetalWario, I really like your positive POV on this. It's really sad to see a legend fall from grace. Maybe he will get inspired by his collegue(s). I agree. For all my complaints about modern Yamamuro, I did really like his aesthetic back when it was fresher in the late DBZ/GT stages of the s...

Re: The FULL version of the infamous DBZ French opening

The one for the original Dragon Ball fits pretty well since the tone of DB is much lighter. The Blue Water dub we got in Canada actually uses an English version of that too. The one for DBZ is awful though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVrVTinOsBw I don't understand the hate it gets in the comme...

Re: Funimation and swearing

Just something I was thinking about. At least in the early days Funimation seemed to be pretty damn wussy about even the most mild of swears in their uncut products back in the day. It was mostly a bunch of darns and bite me and friggin. Then oddly enough you had Dende’s infamous “Don’t piss off th...

Re: Funimation and swearing

FUNimation seemed awfully wish washy about their use of swear words back in the day. They mostly steered clear of them in the early years of their in house dub, but their dub of movie 7 (which predates the Ultimate Uncut dub) had #13 saying things like “I’m here to kill your ass”. Even when the Ult...

Re: Old artstyle vs New Artstyle 2.0

I like Shintani's new poster well enough, but his style is a bit inconsistent to me. Sometimes it's a bit too soft and round, and other times like the design sheets it looks more angular and more appealing to me. https://i.imgur.com/xCG9G6I.jpg These eyes are actually more in line with Toriyama's s...

Re: What is the lamest thing to come out of modern DBZ?

Biggest mistake most franchises do--because it is easy to milk--is to change or create new backstories. Usually it serves to subvert or marginalize the plot and the character development in the first place. Minus is the biggest blow to all of Dragon Ball. It ruins the whole narrative, particularly f...

Re: If FUNimation were to release an 'uncut' Ocean Dub release along with JPN/FUNi dubs?

The practise of splicing an edited dub with Japanese audio to fill in the gaps is more of a thing in Europe. I know a few French releases do that. It's pretty rare in the English world. I don't think Funimation would change that. The original English dub of Escaflowne was produced by Ocean. For wha...

Re: Fan Works Explosion

https://i.imgur.com/Iksah6p.jpg Pick one... The armoured dress is an incredibly silly concept. I really don't like that design. So does everyone just wear armour for no apparent reason? As a dress? I feel like it is a lazy design by Toriyama just to indicate that she is female and very feminine.

That country-sized area that Nappa blew up was never revived. My opinion is that Vegeta will forever be condemned for that at the very least. He can't just get away with that. Also they didn't bring back that truck driver he killed. I know Goku isn't about justice and all that, but if somehow Veget...
