Re: Why didn't Goku's first SSJ transformation get a unique insert song.

The transformation isn't an 'awesome' scene. It's a horror scene, one great horror playing after another as Gokuu reacts to the death of Kuririn and supposed death of Piccolo. It'd be terribly unbalanced to then follow that up with some sort of 'cool' scene.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 93

Super doesn't really need TV Specials, the in-between arc episodes already serve the purpose of side-stories. It's not like you could have specials like we did in Z, where it adds to the plot, the stories don't have enough substance to gain any momentum from that. We can get a special based on Jaco...

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 93

Looks like TAP's animators mistakenly drew Golden Freeza. You can tell on his arms, shoulders and legs that the animation supervisors only had enough time to correct his head.

Yeah, all those designs seem like they're hard to draw. I almost expect them to not do much with a lot of these characters.

Gohan recognized the barbeque flavor of Trunks' ki distinctly matched the barbeque flavor of Gokuu's after transforming into a Super Saiyan during the battle with Freeza on Planet Namek.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 93

It doesn't matter how many scripts you have done if you don't have the staff to produce them. That's been Dragon Ball Super's biggest problem from the start. They don't have animators and their production assistants are in chaos.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 93

Toshio has tweeted that the production lasts 4 to 5 months. I'm kind of conflicted on this. The current production does show that the key animators are struggling a little bit in the Universal Survival arc. It's probably thanks to the series director Nagamine that the storyboards and layouts have b...

I wish there was a break, but I imagine the committee doesn't want to miss any weeks now that they're making so much money.

Re: DBZ: A Stand-Alone Series?

Yeah, if there's one positive I can think of with regards to the battle with Majin Buu it is that near the end it really did feel like Gokuu and the gang were cornered by Majin Buu, especially when he uses his teleport technique to arrive at the Kaioushin Realm.

Re: Super Animation Catalogue 2.0 - Episode 93

One Piece: Episode of East Blue is directed by Ootsuka Takashi with Satou Masayuki as the animation supervisor. Those two have a lot of contacts, so don't be surprised to see some Dragon Ball Super staff appear there.

Re: DBZ: A Stand-Alone Series?

I don't know how anyone can call Dragon Ball Z a 'modern' looking series. It clearly looks like a product of its time on both a key animation level and a coloring level. Hell, it wasn't even all that well animated in comparison to its peers at the time, like Yuu Yuu Hakusho with its numerous Shinbou...

Re: DBZ: A Stand-Alone Series?

Dragon Ball is different from other battle series because there is no overarvhing goal. One arc ends and the entire series could end, especially in Super. I think that's where some of the sentiment comes from.

Re: Voices sounding age appropriate?

Assuming this odd stereotype also extends to manga, in your mind: you should give Berserk a read some time, my man. The only thing I know about Berserk is that the music score by Sagisu Shirou is most aptly described as being 'fucking awesome'. After a quick Google Images search I can confirm that ...

I've said it before and I'll say it again: this arc should have saved the recruitment for flashbacks during each fighter's highlight moment or episode. Saving the reveal of Freeza having joined the team until after highlighting the other nine members of the Seventh Universe would have been a hell of...

Wow. That really just says it all doesn't it? It's about time the art department got their shit together.

Re: Voices sounding age appropriate?

Old age has done Kusao no favors, either. Now he really has to force that higher voice out. At least on Dragon Ball Z he could play the role off without trying too hard to sound like a kid.
