Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I expect Goku to turn into Superboy Prime (as in the evil one from Countdown to Final Crisis)

Re: Messages and themes

Well, my favourite themes, I actually had to think a while to list it: 1. Friendship theme in general. When there was that feeling that everybody could rely on eachother. The Saiyan arc is the best for me, in this particular aspect. 2. Elder, wise masters. I loved when Kame-sennin was pictured as a...

Re: Messages and themes

Eire, Aside from travel, we even never see communications technology being integrated into the protagonists' life (for instance, between Dragonball and Z, there was no communication between Goku and his friends, and nobody aside from Piccolo and Goku, but they had insider knowledge from the future, ...

Re: Messages and themes

I couldn't help but notice a Semi-Luddite theme as technology is almost always depicted as a negative influence (For example, only the bad guys ever use technology, apart from the Dragon Radar and the good guys only get through to namek via an ancient and probably obsolete ship)

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

Then again, you can't really have slapstick humour in things like the Freeza Saga, which was pretty dark.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming.

Replacement scores are more a "dark age of anime" (Concurrent with the "Dark Age" of comics) thing, and only a minority of dubbing companies do that nowadays. And if Ocean are trying to compete with funimation on grounds of faithfulness to the original, then a replacement score w...

Re: TFS Contest: The LittleBig DBZ Abridged Level

It's times like this that make me ashamed that I don't have a PS3 :( (But my Xbox360 does it's job...)

Question about spelling Buu

Is the proper spelling Buu or Boo, given that I see both variants on this forum, and I'm unsure which one is the correct version.

Re: Good things Kai has done for the franchise?

For the English speaking world, Kai has shown them how far Funimation have come since 1999, especially in voice acting and directing, as well as general attitude towards anime. But the only thing holding it back is the lack of a Buu Saga.

Re: The Thousand-Year Super Saiyan

I'm more of the opinion that the "first legendary saiyan" was just a myth, that took an underground following, and Freeza just caught wind of this. Take the numerous paranormal phenomena that took place on Earth 500 or even 50 years ago (Christian Relics and Miracles for example), and have...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming.

Thanks for the info TBP. Now, personally, I suspect that aside from Scott McNeil, there's going to be a total recast at Ocean, due to the fact that many actors from the old dub have moved on to other things, whereas FUNimation's cast has been largely consistent, due to most of the original cast bein...

Would MasakoX ever do a full cover of "Coconut"? Because that was one of my favourite bits from this episode.

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming.

So why are Ocean being so secretive about their new dub? I mean, IIRC Post Trunks Saga, they broadcast their old dub simultaneously with Funimation last time.

And TBP, why are animation companies particularly strict about NDAs?

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming.

Is this turning into Half-Life 2 Episode 3 all over again or something, given that all we seem to know for certain so far (after roughly a year and a quarter) is that: - There is an English dub of DBZ Kai being made in Canada - Scott McNeil is returning for definite - Freeza has been recast - As has...

DBZ Fic idea

Okay, I've got an idea down for a fic, and I was wondering if it would be any good: Broly, instead of being executed by the Saiyans, is instead banished to a world where it is expected that he would not survive for long. However, due to the interference of unknown forces, he finds himself on an alie...

New composer for Kai - who would it be?

Let's assume that Toei decided to hire a new composer (no-one related to Dragonball series or games) to make a replacement for the Yamamoto score, and you had first nomination. Who would it be? For me, it would have to be Jeremy Soule. He worked on the Total Annihilation/Supreme Commander Soundtrack...

Re: Freeza coming to Earth. What was he thinking?

Freeza was always the arrogant type (as most evil overlords are), and to be fair, he did not expect a certain time traveller to interfere with his plans for revenge.

By any chance, was Vegeta yelling "dakka" as he attempted to shoot Freeza a Warhammer 40K reference?
