I sent a review to AICN. If they don't post it by the time I wake up then I'll post it here. Just know this.

It's really bad.

No anger in my voice. It's just...really...bad.

So anyway...

Going to see it tonight.

I imagine it will serve as the coup de grace of my DB fandom bringing it full circle; watching a completely American interpretation of the Japanese original in Japan.

Strange world.

Well, if I manage to get a seat, I'll be leaving the theater 24 hours from now... I hope I survive the gnashing teeth of fans on my way out.

Also, it's not true that the book lists the anime episode numbers for things like fights and whatnot. What it actually does it list the manga chapter number, but it calls these "episodes". So the guide's completely manga-based, listing the kanzenban volume and chapter number. Is that so? It really ...

Well, if they meant the manga, why would they only use the phrase "data supervised by Toriyama" for this one thing (assuming it is only used for this one thing)? I mean, the whole book's based on the manga, so if they thought basing something on the manga was enough qualification for the "look! Tor...

Is it really written out スーパーサイヤ人 and not 超サイヤ人 with スーパー furigana, like in the manga? Nonono. I wrote it like that so it would be read like that since I can't do furigana. I'd do ...

Isn't 'Earthling' different to 'human'? You can be an Earthling without being human. Oolong is an Earthling. *ponders* While a good observation, characters like Trunks are literally listed as 'Half Saiyan and Human'. Also, the category is 'Race' so... I personally have no opinion on it. I stopped h...

DB Super Exciting Guide: Story

It's about as exciting as a lecture on metaphysics. Unless you're passionately in love with metaphysics... In which case you might say it's about as exciting as a lecture on something other than metaphysics. Most of it is information we've seen organized in a number of similar ways all too many time...

People actually believe AF is real over there?!


They think it's an American series.

Which when you think about how Americans think it's a Japanese series, it's one of those paradoxes in life that causes your dick to shrivel up and drop off like a raisin.

The differences between cultures here really shows. There's something I think both can agree on with the film but whenever it comes to the series itself there's always a huge gap. This news of the 'decade' has hit over here with the force of a feather dropping on a baby's laugh, nestled on the back ...

Here, please spread this far and wide before a million fuckers rip it off me. I'm out of the DBZ site loop these days so I dunno who to forward it to besides EX and Kanzentai.

Could you comment on what you meant, EXACTLY, on those bits that people say are iffy or indicate something? Basically, how you got certain impressions that may not be exact quotes and the like.


I'm not sure what you mean here.

If the writer of the above account had bias against the movie, to begin with they may have infused their feelings into the retelling of the event. The writer of the above account feels nothing but apathy towards the film. Lack of hate or love. I am reporting on what I saw and commenting on what I s...

Day 1 Sparking Seiyuu Stage Nozawa & Tanaka Talk Toei's booth was home to a number of small events that as far as I know, the contents and times of which were only made public at the show on a board outside the booth. The entire booth was designed like the desk of a ship with a huge monitor at t...

Game was confirmed as PSP. Just got up and if I`m not phsyically exhausted by the end of today again I will post the details from yesterday here and at AP. Nozawa provided SOME interesting anecdotes but a lot of it is STILL rehash from GT Perfect File. In an unrelated but related topic, I have some ...

I`m always surprised what little excitement for JUMP Festa there is here. Anyway Nozawa was in two shows today I saw and took notes on. One of which was promoting the film. There was also a letter from Toriyama where he expressed his thoughts on it and I got to see the first pics of the PSP game bas...

I happened to see them the other night. They're in the cheapo 'grab'n pull' UFO catchers and yes, the paint job is shoddy but they're extremely easy to win so no big surprise there.

I miss those things. They had quizzes on random pieces of DB information, some for beginners(Who is Vegeta?), intermediates(How old is Goku when Z starts?), and advanced(What does the symbol on Oolong's house mean before he begins traveling with Goku and Bulma?) Glad you enjoyed them. I wrote them....
