Re: How Would You Handle the Music of Modern Dragon Ball?

Assuming that Kikuchi couldn't just score two hundred new pieces of music, I would call in Sagisu Shirou to score. Sagisu has a handle on multiple tones and instrument stles, so he would be able to turn in a lot of varied music to give the franchise an exciting sound.

Re: So did FUNI ruin Bra's name as Bulla forever?

Ah, yes, good ol' America, letting family television programs allow violence as a viable way to resolve conflict. I especially love it when they never even try to attempt using more passive means, like dialogue! But Christ, letting a character be named after a bra? Won't somebody please think of the...

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

I love that Gokuu knows Kuririn so well he can basically fight exactly like him. This image training method should be repeated more often. I'd love to see someone image train against Cell so that they can bring back Wakamoto Norio. I'd love to hear him again, they should cast him as another person ...

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

So if it's not a case of the writers not communicating, then who's out of the loop? Or is the summary itself mistaken? I can't think of a good reason to back pedal on Krillin's development when they very recently dedicated two episodes to it. It was either a conscious decision by Series Director Na...

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

I get the feeling the writers aren't as in contact with each other as they should be. The first set of Krillin episodes the other month was by Tomioka. This one is King Ryû. It's not up to writers to decide the plot. They just turn what the series director wants into scripts, which are basically gl...

Re: Which studio besides Toei would you like DB to be animated by?

Studio Pierrot, if only because of the greater connections to freelancers. A Wakabayashi Atsushi directed series or movie would be insane. Frankly, I want to see a new Dragon Ball series from the younger generation at Toei Animation. Give us Kamatani Haruka as the series director and Hayashi Yuuki o...

Re: Super Episode 82 (19 March 2017)

Yikes, Toppo is a bore. Episodes #81-82 should've been a single episode. The 'opening act' of this arc is running too long for an 'opening act'.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Vegeta is now using the same strategy that Toyo-tarou had him use in Dragon Ball AF. I like this idea, it gives Vegeta his own little thing. I hope Toyo-tarou keeps using it.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 81

They could be rushing through episodes so that the in-house staff can work on later episodes ahead of schedule, but I think that it is more likely that everyone else is busy working on other Toei projects.

Re: How Would YOU Fix The Goku Black Arc?

As much as I like the mystery aspect of the Future Trunks arc, I do have to wonder if we could accomplish something new and interesting by focusing more on Black and Zamasu. In fact, it would be interesting to literally frame those two as the main characters and even end the arc with Merged Zamasu's...

The character designer is still important. Not simply because of their reputation, but because of their ability to create character designs and expressions that inspire other animators to want to work on the series and create their own drawings.

How so?


Good animators can pick what projects they want to work on. Good designs and staff attract them.

It depends on whether Nagamine has any connections willing to work with Yamamuro's designs.

It's tragic how the bad character designer for a popular series keeps away good talent.

Re: Who saw the Japanese Verison as a kid?

I caught a couple episodes of the Afterlife Tournament and early Majin Buu arc on International Channel. Now that was some good shit. Unfortunately, I didn't have taste back then and didn't keep up with that broadcast very well.

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

If that happens, then that just shows the writers don't have the imagination to do anything differently. Even if Goku reacts as you say, then you can have Vegeta realize how fruitless his effort has been since Goku doesn't acknowledge his effort the way he wanted him to. You can do all kinds of int...
