Re: Ree vs. DBZ Uncensored

..You've written a rebuttal to a highly contextual piece written a decade ago. This is one of the strangest, most redundant critiques that I have ever read. Surely your time would be better spent writing something like a long form comparative piece where you detail the improvements you believe the E...

Re: Scenes that were better in FUNI dub

I kind of liked that scene where Freeza is having Super Saiyan flashbacks and in the dub Goku whispers "Freezaaaah".

Otherwise, nope.

Re: Post your Resurrection F Theatre Experience

I just got back from the 4:30pm showing at Charlestown in NSW. I had my reservations going into it as it was the English dub, a 3d showing and perhaps worst of all I would be subjected to the chortling, mouth breathing meme-spouting unwashed masses that is anime fandom at large. My qualms however we...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Resurrection '

Awesome news for us Australian and New Zealand fans. Resurrection 'F' is getting released on August 6th! The site is down, perhaps we all helped crash it. I'd love to see it in the cinema, but I doubt its playing anywhere near the Newcastle area, and its impossible for me to make a trip to Sydney d...

Re: For those that own Madman's release of Part 1 on DVD...

It is for this exact reason I refuse to purchase any DVDs from Madman, I have wasted hundreds of dollars on titles that are competently encoded in North America, but upon reaching Australian shores receive fiercely incompetent Pal conversions.

Re: Budokai 1 HD question

And if you happen to have a Ps3 on custom firmware, it's actually pretty easy to restore the original music, provided you have a copy of Budokai 1 and 3.

Re: Has TFS damaged the reputation of the franchise in the U

Is your critique that I'm not changing or that I'm not changing to your POV? It was more of a semantic nitpick over the use of the word pretentious than anything else :p. As for my point of view on parody, especially where DBZA is concerned, I would argue that it ceased being a straight parody of D...

Re: Has TFS damaged the reputation of the franchise in the U

Self proclaimed? I'm allowed to personally believe that the acting of the people I work with is solid and I have the legitimate work we've all garnered to further support my claim that my team, as a whole, is full of people who can act. I meant "your" in the collective sense, It read a li...

As I said. Pretentious. ABED is simply being rather steadfast and unyielding in his view. The only affected pretence in this thread is your self proclaimed acting finesse and general lack of humility. You all do a fine job hamming up a schtick for an incredibly popular Youtube series, don't make it...

I know the logistics of this probably make it impossible (adult life), but I would have no qualms about donating towards an airfare if it meant both Mike & Meri could cover the première.

I'm more than willing to dismiss this as a misunderstanding and let bygones be bygones, however next time you're speaking generally, perhaps refrain from using the pronoun you.

Re: Battle of Gods character profiles.

They're all from the Battle of Gods theatrical booklet.

It was a nice full colour book you could only pick up in theatres, although quite a few did crop up on ebay, I myself nabbed one.

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

I nabbed the march issue of Saikyo Jump (not that it has arrived yet), along with the Battle of Gods animanga (I had some cdjapan points to spare).

I also picked up the Goku edition of Battle of Z. ..Which I kind of regret at this point.

How confident can you be as a person if you can't even have an harmless entertainment hobby of yours somewhat visible at your own house due to the fear of being judged...?

So, being confident (which is one of the biggest attractions for girls) and not going about actually hiding stuff would be much better, IMO. Being a confident person and being confident about displaying your altar to Akira Toriyama are two completely separate things. And please guys, your attempts ...

Hiding your interests from possible romantic partners isn't a great idea in my opinion. Its better to just be honest and confident. And if she likes it, then at least you will know she likes who you really are. That would be a great idea... That is if Dragonball (or anime) defined me as a person to...
