Re: Dragonball Evolution - Looking Back

I was one of the people who actually saw it in theaters. The nicest thing I could say about it is that it was short.

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Nuthing lol. But it does show that Sailor Moon is much like DB in many ways. Down to having a flawed, divise yet still much loved first dub and a more updated one for better or worse. Is the DIC dub of SM beloved? I thought it was held in the same regard as the stuff made by 4Kids. People always se...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

I can’t imagine there being any real benefits to going back to DBZA anytime in the near future. It’s too risky and they’ve already mentioned how burnt out they are from abridging in general.

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

The problem with Kai is its a half ass recut of the show that uses badly placed Kikuchi music for the first series and generic modern shonen anime music for the second series. I think the appeal of a redub of Z is getting the whole shebang. The garlic jr arc, the otherworld tournament, the Saiyan s...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Forgive me if I sound condescending, but I do have to ask: what exactly would people hope to get out of a DBZ redub that they can’t already get with Kai? As much as I believe that Kai was just a cheap cash grab on Toei’s end, it still gave fans an English dub that’s universally seen as being superi...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

I'm sure if he got offered a big paycheck he wouldn't say no to redubbing Goku. I always see him complaining when he finishes voice work on a show and says, "I need a new job." Dragonball has given him a consistent source of income because he's always dubbing the videogames every year as well...so ...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Never saw their inhouse tree of might except in a reveiw clip. Why did they use the Ocean TV dialogue and not the uncut Pioneer? That’s certainly not a bad question. The best explanation I can come up with is that they perhaps wanted to set the dub apart from what Pioneer did, so they decided to es...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

(also why's the thread title only including Z? What about DB and GT!) Not only DB and GT, but the majority of the movies and specials need a new dub as well. I agree. In particular I think the Bardock and Trunks specials need it most simply because they're much more relevant today simply by being d...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

I imagine there’s not much of a financial incentive in redubbing a 291 episode cartoon, especially when Kai exists. Why spend time and money doing something like that, when the old dub sells perfectly fine?

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

A large portion of the fan base thinks he's a joke just because he's died a lot. This never made sense to me, as even Goku died twice in the manga, 3 if you count GT. Vegeta has died twice as well, same as Piccolo. Krillin is definitely a favorite of mine. What he lacks in power he more than makes ...

Re: Dragon Ball GT and Star Wars

Japan seems to be one of the only countries in East Asia where Star Wars is fairly popular, so I’m sure some of the people involved in GT were probably fans.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Krillin is one of the best characters in the franchise. That may not be an unpopular sentiment among hardcore fans here, but unfortunately a large portion of the fan base thinks he's a joke just because he's died a lot. I'd go as far to say Krillin is a Top 5 character, if not higher. I get the imp...

Re: I feel like the slow pacing for DBZ in the anime and filler works to its advantage

I would’ve had more respect for Kai as a concept if it was actually committed to being more like the manga, instead of being selective about what filler gets cut out and what stays. It’s just ridiculous to me that they got rid of the scenes showing Gohan’s training, but kept nonsense like Ginyu swap...

Re: Perfect Ultra Instinct: Skinny vs. Swole?

I don’t like making him skinny or overly buff. Making him skinny just makes it look like a Super Saiyan God recolor, while buffing him up conflicts with the idea of him being in a calm state of mind in that form. He should just keep his normal physique.

Re: So, I guess better luck next time Vegeta when it comes to primary villains...

I’d imagine that the resolution to the Moro conflict probably won’t be as straightforward as UI Goku defeating Moro on his own. Still, I don’t think I ever really understood why people get disappointed whenever Goku is the one who defeats the villain. Goku is the protagonist of Dragon Ball. That’s h...

I’ve never heard anything about Super Saiyan 4 Gohan being something that was actually considered. I remember seeing that image years ago, but I always thought it was fan-made?

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

The simple fact of the matter is that modern Dragon Ball already set a precedent when it brought back Freeza and introduced a new version of Broly. Toriyama talked about Broly's popularity as one of the reasons why he agreed to use him so he might not consider rebooting other less popular villains....
