Re: DragonBall dub

I see no reason why Funimation can't go ahead with a "Dragonball" Kai. They can just give it the Level treatment, though something tells me they would just slap it with the Season set makeover. Since DB plays second fiddle to DBZ now in Japan, I feel like we'll get a shorter version of DB...

Re: DragonBall dub

Dragon Ball is just one of those shows that works best in Japanese, even if the dub is a "little faithful" you're still missing out on the humour.

Re: If a different mangka wrote Dragon Ball

If Kiyohiko Azuma wrote it, it'd be a slice of life tale of Bulma finding Son Goku, a little girl, in the woods, raising her with her family and going to school. I wanna see a Slice of life Dragon Ball school parody now... Kaio-sama, Dr. Brief, Muten-Roshi, Tsuru-sennin, Tao Paipai, Piccolo, Karin, ...

Cell didn't get mad, did he? He was just kind of worried because Gohan was way stronger than he expected?

Re: Using the word "saga" to describe story divisions

It's funny because they use the term saga correctly in the DB Season 1 trailer, something like "The Dragon Ball saga begins here!"

At least Viz uses "arc" on their Color Version covers.

Re: Why did FUNimation spell Freeza with an "i"?

I don't think there's anything wrong with the spelling, it doesn't really spoil the pun. But they spell Koola "Cooler" which REALLY bothers me. Vegeta may as well call Goku "Carrot" all the time. Maybe it was because the Japanese spelling is Furīza/フリーザ. I'm seriously suggesting ...

Yes, exactly, thinking they're "acting gay" is childish, they act like stereotypical posh rich people, they're like evil Frasier and Niles.

Like the Ginyu Special Corps posing, they're supposed to be Power Rangers!

It's probably a B+, 9 out of 10, which is pretty good. 9/10 is a B+? :eh: I think he's going by modern video games journalism grades where 8/10 is "awful", 9/10 is "pretty good" and 10/10 is "could be better". I think Dragon Ball is great, it's tough for comic books to...

That part looks REALLY familiar. From the Saiyan arc maybe? Goku or Raditz or Gohan slamming into the ground? I don't know, I just started watching the Saiyan arc, I don't wanna start again!

I was kinda joking, like how in the "uncut" DBZ dub it's more "uncut" because they mention death and add needless swear words.

Just bought the issue with it in English on the WSJ app on my phone, pretty good, enjoyable.

Re: Barry Watson vs Yukio Nagasaki - who "damaged" series mo

Yukio Nagasaki was involved with very little, Barry Watson might have fucked up the entire series in English, and now DBZ just has one of the worst dubs for a long running TV anime.
