Re: Top 5 Dragon Ball fights.

One that has always been in my top 5 for pure entertainment value is Trunks vs Goten.

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...

Re: Evolution of Goku's Gi Colours

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? For the color...

I just want to clarify again that, in this argument of technicalities and semantics, the upper atmosphere is space, everywhere is space, we all live in space on a daily basis.

Re: Since Goku and Bardock both fought in space, can Saiyans survive upper atmosphere?

"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. ...

That's literally what I just said. No, it isn't literally what you just said. You said "it's just some Toriyama bullshit", a nonsensical reductive statement implying some incoherence or inconsistency on his part when there's nothing of the sort. You brought up human limitations when nobody is talki...

Please direct me to the Daizenshuu article where it talks about the ability for saiyans to breathe ozone. In extremely low pressures where lungs literally can't function. I'll wait. What are you even talking about? Saiyans are not human. They are a fictional race in a fictional franchise. They are ...

Did you mean to type "doesn't mean they can't"?
No. I meant exactly what I typed: the fact that they can survive in the former (upper atmosphere) doesn't mean they can do the same for the latter (space).

Goku and Bardock didn't fight in space, and there's no reason to assume they can.

The bottom of the ocean is "part of the ocean", that doesn't mean you can survive there just because you can swim on the top of it. That's not the question being asked. The point is that the upper atmosphere is not space. The fact that they can survive in the former doesn't mean they can do the sam...

Re: What was your first game in the franchise?

Dragon Ball Z: Buyū Retsuden for the Sega Mega Drive. Unfortunately it was only in japanese, so it was hard to navigate the menus, but it had great gameplay and a nice character roster to choose from.
