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 a...

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...

Re: How important is every fighter on team Universe 7?

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. But you can't bring people back from the dead and train them so this is what we . Goku and vegeta are the tier 1 fighters w...

Re: Super's Time Setting: The 10 Year Window

Why would Goku not be excited about Uub even after Super? He has the power of Kid Buu as he is now without any real training. Kid Buu is one of the strongest fighters in their universe. Why on earth would Goku not want to train with him and make him even more powerful? For all we know, now Goku mig...

Re: You just met Akira Toriyama

I'd want to ask him: If he could rewrite the story from the beginning of Dragonball without any editors being involved, what would be some of the major changes?

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

Super's random buffs and nerfs. Raditz never had to worry about bullets, and now Krillin does. Wasn't he like dozens of times stronger than Raditz? And Roshi is somehow now on the same tier as the other human fighters? Trunks's blue aura thing? And this is fanboy nitpicking but maybe Vegito not bein...

Re: Any examples of bad voice acting in the original?

Kid Trunks's voice in Super gets obnoxious really fast. Both in Japanese and in English.

Plus in Super there's the whole "everyone sounds like old people even though they're like 40" thing, but that's kind of difficult to remedy without recasting or time-skip.

Re: Dragonball franchise is getting too complicated for its own good

I mean, it's still pretty easy to get people into the really good bits. Read the manga, or watch Dragon Ball followed by Dragon Ball Kai. It's when you weigh in Super, GT, and the movies that it gets complicated. After Kai, watch Battle of Gods, Resurrection F, Super from episode 28 on, and then GT ...
