Re: Cell has the greatest potential in entire Dragon Ball

He doesn't even need the androids, does he? If he just injures and heals himself over and over and over, he would be actually unstoppable. Maybe too fast for Zeno to even know to erase.

Re: Question on which home media releases to buy for an "Authentic" Dub experience.

If by "Authentic" you mean the experience people watching DBZ on TV had, your best bet would probably be the edited VHS tapes. They have the "Stand by for Dragon Ball Z" intro and a bunch of commercials. If that's not feasible for you, the single DVDs. For the Ocean stuff, you pr...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

I'm in love with the fact that 17 works to preserve wildlife. It works with what we know about him during his road-tripping, and maybe it indicates that a bit of 16's sentimentality towards animals rubbed off on him. It's good writing, I think. 17 should be able to beat the poachers with little effo...

Re: Could Funimation have Censored "Mr. Satan" Differently?

Mr. Savage would be easy on the voice actors and would have been a pun/connection with Randy Savage. I like that alternative best.

Re: What's so bad about 'Bulla?'

Honestly, I don't care either way. "Bulla" is better because in all honesty, what person with a functioning brain knowingly names their child Bra? On the other hand, "Bra" is more accurate and I (usually) use whatever names are in the manga once I've seen them appear in the mang...

Re: Was the hate for Kai largely unjustified?

From the not actually HD and not actually reanimated "HD reanimation" to the score scandal and varying "Final Chapters" versions, I wouldn't say it's totally unjustified. I'd say the pros outweigh the cons though. DBZ is finally in a digestible format, with a great new dub, and ...

Re: Why Kibito Kai unfusing was best for Super

Luckily we know only Kaioshins can permanetly fuse. I swear that potara "retcon" is one if the best thing to ever happen. We finally won't see fans crying "why don't they fuse" anymore, or, at the very least, as much as they used to, considering we also got the "SSB consume...

Re: Try to razionalize "stupid" desicions made by characters throughout the franchise

Why in God's name did Goku give Cell a senzu? It still boggles my mind to this day. Never mind that Goku had no idea just how strong Cell was, but it was already an insane gamble to throw Gohan into the lions den without any plan and just hoping that he'd be able to spontaneously tap into the hidde...

Re: Was Toryiama going to write Vegeta as a gay character? Can anyone confirm?

Wasn't one of the reasons Nappa and Vegeta wanted to go to Earth was so that they could make super strong hybrid children like Gohan? Was that anime only?

I'm gonna call no on this one.

Re: Did Super ruin some characters for you?

Gohan. Went from being the strongest non-fused Z fighter to basically human-tier in 5 years. I wish the series would decide if they want him to be a scholar or a fighter. Not sure how I feel about the new rules surrounding Potara. Why don't they form Vegerot in basically any dangerous situation ever...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Really glad they dubbed the ending. If you're gonna translate a show, why wouldn't you translate the whole thing?

I agree that titles should keep "God of Destruction." Destroyer works in the dub because it fits mouth flaps better, but it should be GoD in written form.

Re: Suppose that the original Dragon Ball gets a new dub...

I love the dub version of "Over the Star" from Kai, so I'm 100% for dubbing the insert songs. My answer is yes, as long as the dubbed version is good.

Re: One of the original DBZ directors says FUNi Blu-rays where "what it was supposed to look like to begin with"

IMO the Levels are the best Dragon Ball Z has ever looked. It's a shame it was so expensive to produce and the timing was so poor. The Blu-ray seasons have cropping and smudging, the Dragon Boxes are SD with distorted color palettes (see: the green sky in the Goku vs. Vegeta battle.) I appreciate th...

I want Zeno to be assassinated at the tournament. Don't get me wrong, I love Zeno, but it would be such a good callback/twist if the whole "Zeno erases everything" threat never even happens. A thing that happened a lot in Z was that someone super powerful would be killed by a newcomer to m...

Re: How would you move past EoZ?

I would do what Toriyama tried and failed to do with the Buu Saga, put Goku on the sidelines as more of a nuclear option and let the young characters become the new main protagonists. I'd basically set it up so that Uub and Pan (and maybe Gohan?) become the main characters, with Goku as like the men...

I'm just going to assume very few universes have the caliber of fighters universe 7 has. In fact this isn't even the best collection of fighters universe 7 could of assembled.
