Re: How DBZ on Cartoon Network worked? Please help explain

As someone from outside the US who was introduced to the franchise in the early 10s, seeing the regular CN branding over something that violent does not compute. Oh, yeah. If you think Cartoon Network is liberal now, you have no idea how awesome they were back in the day! I'm surprised they even ne...

Re: Original Dragon Ball anime to be released on Blu Ray in Spain

They claim they've been negotiating for 2 years to get "original materials" from Toei. That must mean something . What, I'm not sure yet. But they've been negotiating for 2 years, I really think that amounts to more than just digital 480p Dragon Box masters, especially since they've already done rel...

Re: How DBZ on Cartoon Network worked? Please help explain

I honestly didn't know UUC had an edited variant on CN USA. I wish we had complete recordings of it, both cut and uncut I mean, I may prefer watching Japanese Z or Funi Kai, but still. And before anyone brings up the remastered sets, there's no guarantee that they didn't change anything from the or...

Re: How DBZ on Cartoon Network worked? Please help explain

Alright, lemme crack my knuckles and offer what I can. Did GT follow immediately after the last episode of Z? Or before Z was even done airing? Did it get its own timeslot? Did GT air once a day without breaks? GT started airing in November of 2003, where Dragon Ball Z ended in April. Fortunately, t...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

On another note, related to the Ocean dub of Z, do we actually know for a fact that no episodes between 67 and 123 exist? Seems kind of odd for them to have skipped the first few episodes of Cell like that. Seeing as how the Canadian broadcast didn't switch over until later, is it possible some epi...

Some may find it ill-advised, but I decided for better or worse to email Mrs. Shulman about this issue, only because she's replied to my inquiries before.

Sorry to bump the thread without having anything substantial to report (yet) but I just want you guys to wish me luck on this.

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

The fact that this became a shit-flinging thread of "Super is better than GT" and "GT is better than Super" shows how dumb the divisions in the fandom are. Not in this case. I was just commenting on how he had claimed that GT being better than Super was a fact. As if it is somehow an undeniable tru...

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

But the fact of the matter is, the writers at Toei had a much better vision for following up on Z in 1996 than Toriyama did in 2015. It is a fact? Do you know what a fact is? I for one, am of the belief that GT is worse than Super in every conceivable way other than the ending, and doesn't even fee...

Re: GT is canon as much as Super is

I couldn't have said it better myself. Most people just hate GT because it's popular to hate GT and because the messiah Toriyama had little to do with it. But the fact of the matter is, the writers at Toei had a much better vision for following up on Z in 1996 than Toriyama did in 2015. I could go i...

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" dub seems to be coming...

I wish whoever holds the rights to Ocean dub Kai would just release it as a niche collector’s edition of Kai through didigital platforms at least. Pretty much pure profit because the printing of DVDs is not involved Sure, to us, it's as simple as that. But to both Ocean and Toei who seem to have sk...

Content-wise, no. Just that Amazon has a higher bitrate for their streams which means less compression which is a good thing.

Re: Lord Slug on YTV?

Take a look here . You'll find most(All?) of the Z movies aired in summer 2002. Well, don't get it confused. They just aired the Ocean trilogy, the 2 specials, and Lord Slug. I guess I was wrong and they got at least one movie from the post-Ocean era. But they only aired it 3 times ever so clearly ...
