I didn't know that the idea of Goku Black was a pitch to Toriyama, but it makes sense.
If I recall correctly, what was pitched to Toriyama was the idea to bring back Future Trunks. Goku Black was a Toriyama idea.

I should and I do, given that he's the author. If there's anyone's words that should be taken as gospel in regards to DB, it's his.

Re: What do you think Dragon Ball RoF mistakes are?

I don't think it has any mistakes, only disappointing aspects. I found it disappointing how Tagoma was easily disposed of, same with Shisami. They had cool designs. I found it disappointing how young Trunks was completely ommited from the story. The premise of Freeza's return wasn't all that interes...

In RoF, they said that they were unable to find him. Freeza's men think that he could be dead.
That is something I didn’t know, nor remember seeing.
Yeah, it's been a while since I've seen Resurrection F, but I don't remember that either.

I, for one, am glad they are working on another movie (with Toriyama's involvement, of course). I was worried that we would only be getting another movie after another season of the anime.

What's interesting is that the specials were released in HD, even though the managed to mess up the bardock special (the video were trimmed to match the dub so they removed certain frames and the commercial breaks).
I've read about the lack of eyecatches, but not frames. Which frames were removed?

Re: Episode #0488 (18 April 2021)

Yeah, they clearly let their actor's ego and narcissism get over their heads (not all of them, of course). That's not to say they did a bad job. They did a lot with very little, and overall the dub was fine. But they rarely have the humility to recognize that they happened to have been part of a pro...

Damn it. Considering the quality it seems to have, I can live without the eyecatches. But it's a shame nonetheless.

Re: Episode #0488 (18 April 2021)

I think if there's one thing that gets exaggerated in regards to Dragon Ball in Portugal are the joke factor in the dub. Jokes which were sparse, even though one might get a different idea by finding them all neatly compiled online. The jokes were never part of Dragon Ball's huge success or appeal. ...

Yeah the specials are really nice. Not completely de-grained. Nice picture quality. Over all just enjoyable to watch.
I'm so glad the hear that. I think I'm going to order it. Could you post some screencaps just to see how it looks like?

By the way, does it only include german subtitles?

Re: What are the odds of us getting 4:3 Blu-rays of the Bardock/Trunks specials?

Definitely not. It will be exactly what we got with the Spanish Blu-ray of DB; a shitty upscale of the Dragon Box master that, because it's had this filtering applied, they are calling a "New master" even though it's just the old master with some filters. "Definitely"?! There's no evidence that the...

And the trademark orange led to his Saiyan name Kakarotto.

I do agree that it's unfortunate that the anime went with a more reddish color (and for so long).

Re: Evolution of Goku's Gi Colours

As Toriyama eventually explained , the color is meant to be orange in reference to what Shaolin monks wore (the shade of orange can differ but it's usually light orange): How did you decide on the coloring of costumes, such as the main characters’ [clothes] and the Kamesen-school dōgi?

"Saiyans can't breathe in space" and "saiyans can breathe where there's no free oxygen or air pressure to actually allow the diaphragm to function" is a contradiction. Again, what are you even arguing about? Upper atmosphere is not space and vice versa. Saiyans can survive in the upper atmosphere. ...
