Re: Why is everyone so obsessed about Gohan going SSinthemov

Well...it's kind of a continuity issue. On a really basic level. To be completely fair to Gohan going SSJ in the movies, AT never once said (unless I'm forgetting something) he couldn't go SSJ after getting Mystic. It has always just been a fan theory. But why would you use a weaker form to battle a...

Re: Official On-Going DBZ 2015 Movie Thread: "Fukkatsu no F"

Oh boy, they're really reaching with this one. Maybe when more info comes out I'll reconsider but atm this just seems so random and reminds me of stupid fan made DBZ stories with old villains and plot devices being reused due to lack of imagination. Oh and nice to see Toei downgrade Gohan to Super ...

Re: Will FUNimation stop using Faulconer for future Z releas

Being rude? I guess there is a big difference in what I consider rude and what you might then. Let's refine it to 'certain' members constantly belittle the Faulconer music. You definitely were not being rude, just merely observing a fact of this forum. Your original statement didn't even blanket co...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 2015 Film

Incredible news to hear on this Tuesday morning!

Re: Did DBZ Overuse The "Idiot Ball" Trope?

For those who don't know, the Idiot Ball trope basically refers to a character acting extremely stupid for little to no good reason. Examples of this include 18 not running from Cell despite 16's urges, Freeza letting Dende fly past him "just because", Vegeta going to sleep and letting the thought ...

It definitely does. You can get a lot more out of the whole series by watching DB first. It's a bit sad that it's so neglected, back then and even now.

Personally, i would forgive bad redrawn scenes, and odd choices of filler/original material balance, if only Toei decided to include original Dragon Ball in Kai, it was such missed opportunity, i tried to watch original DB, but, voice iss really muffled, not to mention, maybe original Dragon Ball w...

Re: Kai Episode 109 (15 June 2014)

I thought the placement of the soundtrack was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the episode, and I haven't even watched it with subtitles yet! I do think some folks are being a bit too harsh with the music though. Or that's just the taste with a lot of people here I would suppose. The music just works...

Re: Dragonball Z's rewatchability

My roommate and I watched the Orange Bricks from start to finish a few months back while we were working on thesis. After seeing the series so many times on Toonami, it didn't faze me, but I noticed ALL of the things I hate about it; the Great Saiyaman arc was the worst of it, so much filler. Yeah,...

Re: To sell my Dragon Boxes or not?

What's the particular reason (if it isn't too private) that money is so tight to make you sell that stuff? I definitely would not sell any of that if you possibly can. Why work so hard to acquire it all if it's just going to be gone? Unless you are becoming one with the world, or something non-mater...

Re: Dragonball Z's rewatchability

Very rewatchable at least when it comes to Kai and having it pertain up to the Cell arc. I'm really not of a fan of Cell and anything after, though I can still watch it from time to time.
