Re: The Anime's ToP or the Manga's ToP? Which one did you prefer?

On one hand, the anime version ToP went on for far too long, to the point where I couldn’t help but breathe a massive sigh of relief when it was all over. On the other hand, the manga version of the ToP had the opposite problem, where everything just felt extremely rushed. I also prefer the way the ...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

Alright, so, from what I’ve gathered from this thread, it seems like Movie 11 is in fact the “popular” choice for worst movie in the franchise. That’s not exactly surprising to me, but what I didn’t quite expect was for people to say that Movie 4 is the second most hated. I never cared for the movie...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

Didn’t Toonami’s revival start pre-obtaining the syndication rights to Dragon Ball Kai? Yes, but cable television was in a much better state back then compared to how it is now. Still, I think that as long as anime remains popular in the U.S., there will continue to be a market for Toonami. Weren’t...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

It followed the same setup as many of the older movies, in that there was very little plot Isn't that basically all of DB? Let’s put it this way: something like Battle of Gods didn’t have much plot either, but it at least felt like it had a purpose beyond the fighting. Even though I’m sick of Beeru...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

While the lack of tension was certainly a big part of the problem with RF, I’d argue that it was also pretty formulaic. It followed the same setup as many of the older movies, in that there was very little plot, and what little there was seemed like it was just an excuse to show off the fighting. Wh...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

If TFS were able to abridge Movie 6 and Movie 7, I don’t see why Movie 9 would’ve been too difficult to work with, but it’s their series. Still, if Movie 9 was too difficult for them to come up with any material for, I don’t think the next two Broly movies will be an easy task either. They already u...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

Now that I think about it, Movie 11 is the one DBZ movie that has gotten pretty much no recognition in any of the video games outside of Heroes and Dokkan Battle. I guess that alone should be a fairly solid indicator of just how little fans actually care for the movie. I suppose it doesn’t help that...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

It's generally considered that DBZ Movie 4 and 11 are the worst of the Toei DBZ movies. I find DBZ Movie 4 the most creatively offensive, DBZ Movie 6 the most visually offensive, and DBZ Movie 11 the most... boring. Meh. I’d say that Movie 7, Movie 10 and Resurrection ‘F’ (though, again, I seem to ...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

I don’t know if I should be embarrassed by this, but I didn’t even realize that Movie 4 was seen as a contender for the worst one. I don’t care for it either, but I was under the impression that people were just sort of indifferent to it. It always struck me as the least talked about of the original...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

Honestly, I thought Z 10 and 11 were quite fun, though 10 is quite dull in its second half. For me, the real stinkers are Z 3, 4, 5, and 7. Especially 4. I myself used to consider Movie 11 to be the worst, but nowadays, I find myself thinking that Movie 10 is the worst, at least as far as the Broly...

Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

To be clear, I’m referring specifically to the animated movies that were distributed by Toei Animation, so Dragon Ball: Evolution and the other two live action movies don’t count. Anyway, while opinions on the movies of course vary, I’m curious if there’s any generally accepted consensus on which on...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

If they were able to abridge Movie 7, it seems odd that they wouldn’t be able to put together a decent script for the Bojack movie, especially since that film actually had some decent character stuff. Then again, Movie 7 had a redneck bad guy, a robot that inexplicably drinks alcohol, and Goku getti...

Re: Did Ultimate Tenkaichi have potential as a full series?

I think RB2 debuted the kai cast Raging Blast 2 debuted the Kai cast. Raging Blast 2 also sent off the OG FUNi cast. Often times within a sentence of each other.

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

In all honesty, as terrible as the dub of season 3 was, I still think it’s a pretty fascinating relic from a bygone era. Everything about it was absolutely amateurish, but it is fun to look back and see just how far the actors that are still involved in the franchise today have come. I kind of wish ...

I don’t understand what’s being argued about here.

On the subject of why the dub went with...

Re: How was FUNimation able to afford all that licensed band music back in the day?

I just remembered that the dub of the Bardock special had Superstar by Saliva playing at one point, and several months later, that exact song would be heard in the first Fast and Furious movie. That’s a little crazy.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - (Non) Announcement & Discussion Thread

I’m surprised that there hasn’t really been anything new since the movie. Sure, the manga is in the middle of its own story arc right now, but there’s been absolutely nothing on the anime side of things.
