Re: Bruce Faulconer returning to compose the score for DBS?

It won't happen. But I would be totally ok with it happening. I like the old American only score a lot, but I don't like it any more or less than the original. Some tracks I really absolutely adore from both, others not so much. I don't see an issue with changing the score for different localisation...

Re: Lack of females characters in Dragon Ball

The disappointment is that the series almost goes there several times with having prominent, important females and then reigns itself back in. Bulma's relevance fades off in Z. But in fairness, she's back in Super. I think ChiChi is actually pretty great, honestly. Her absurdly realistic motherly n...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Anyone see this old video Schemmel and Strait made parodying Vic? Ok, so this is genuinely funny to me as a peice of comedy and in Sean's skill. But... Is no one going to address the elephant in the room here? Sean is alluding to the stereotype that Christian campness = a pedophillic interest in yo...

Re: Should they stop making English version of the songs for the international audience?

Blizzard is ...awful in English. And I agree, still sounds Japanese? Just, quiet and doesn't flow? Given it only plays in the credits and they clearly have no intention to try and release it as a stand alone song in the West, why bother? I love some of the English translations, but it's a case by ca...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Broly Box Office Thread

Well, Broly is leaving theatres in Ireland tomorrow. It was fun while it lasted. Over $1 million for here and the UK was good for what it was. Still nice it got a full two weeks. Hoping the next movie will get an even longer run due to Broly's success. Don't worry man! I think the Blu-Ray is coming...

Re: Dragon Ball Super: Broly Box Office Thread

That is insane. Glass might suck, but it's a big budget movie made to appeal to the masses and it has barely broke $200mill. Not every big budget movie is successful in box office. With all this hype Broly should gain $100 million just in Japan but it did not happen. Eh, I think you miss the point....

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

In some ways this movie was Sumitomo's best work, with Broly's theme being pretty damn impressive and a lot of excellent battle themes... In others it's his worst work, because seriously , what were they thinking with the wrestling announcer stuff? It's extremely goofy and completely undermines the...

Re: "It's Goku...but Broly, call me Kakaroth"

Portuguese dub They've dubbed it in Portuguese or do you mean Brazilian -Portuguese? Kind of interested either way but FUNimation's English dub is easily their best English DB dub yet. Besides, Japanese/English I'm very excited to watch it it Castillan as well. Oh no not the Broly movie, sorry for ...

Re: "It's Goku...but Broly, call me Kakaroth"

I was watching the Kai dub the other day and lost my shit when King Kai says something along the lines of "this might as well be written in Japanese." I think there's a real skill in localising translations in such a way to appeal to a specific audience, rather than just translating the original tex...

Re: Is Dragon Ball Your Favorite Anime Ever?

I don't really care for many others, certainly don't keep up with any. I really dig Evangelion but I ain't watched it in yeeeears. It's definitely the only serial anime I've cared for in any meaningful way. I checked out One Punch Man because it was so short and actually digestible, haha, I enjoyed ...

Yeah, I also find it incredibly problematic to suddenly be taking the high road after apparently having ignored it for so long. Not that we know what they did or didn't know. And to be fair, they may well have been voicing their concerns with higher ups and getting ignored. Still. Yeah. Problematic....

As with anything, people tend to only notice the opposing side and their pov when it's screaming the oposing view. I'm guilty of that.

I can’t speak for what Mignogna’s intentions were, but if I was a VA, I personally wouldn’t sign any fanart that’s sexual in nature, especially not if it involves characters who happen to be minors. Same! Absolutely same. But that's not what people were reporting. Just because something has implied...
