So much for the “innocent until proven guilty” crowd. The man just proved himself to be guilty.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I don’t understand the excitement for a Vegeta focused Sadala arc. People have been saying that it’s going to happen and it’s going to be so cool, but I just don’t get it. What would even be the story? Vegeta goes on a field trip to Sadala, and then what? A random bad guy comes and they fight? I don...

Re: Did the franchise ever POSITIVELY affect you?

Watching/reading DB has given me lots of happiness and joy over the many years, so I guess that would be my answer to this question.

Re: Your ONE favorite character and your ONE favorite version of him/her

Favorite Character: Son Goku

Favorite Version: Saiyan arc

It was either the Saiyan or RRA arc, but the former barely edges out.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

They just don’t care. They know everyone has seen the Japanese version already and are clearly phoning it in for this show. There’s almost zero hype behind the dub episodes when they come out. The only ones excited are the hardcore dub fans. Funimation knows most of those guys won’t care for the qua...

Re: Which arcs do you think each recurring character was best and worst potrayed in and why?

Goku Best - Saiyan arc. Tough choice between the RRA and Saiyan arcs, but I’ll go with the Saiyan arc because it was a major changing point for him. And while it wasn’t the first time he’s made a selfish decision, sparing Vegeta is probably his most notable one. Character defining moment. Worst - F...

Re: What is your favorite fight of each DragonBall series?

What’s with the fascination of Goku Jr. vs Vegeta Jr.? That was at most a 1 minute fight with no real substance. DB - Goku vs Majunior DBZ - Goku and Everyone vs Vegeta DBGT - Tough one because the fights aren’t that good, but maybe the final fight with Yi Xing Long DBS - Goku/Freeza/17 against Jire...

Re: Things you wish Toriyama never ssaid (about characters or story)

I think the worst thing he’s said was about Majin Boo’s origin. It creates a plothole because the manga and anime both claim that Bibidi created Boo, and nothing ever hints at that being wrong. So when Toriyama says “oh he actually existed since the beginning of time,” it doesn’t make sense. Why wou...

As far as I know, there is no “I’m a primary fan of the Japanese version, but I wish they used the English dub names in the subs” demographic. As much as I'm not defending this and absolutely hate this decision...you'd be surprised. I personally know several people who, after 131 episodes of Super ...

The real confusing part is who are they doing this for? What demographic are they trying to please? As far as I know, there is no “I’m a primary fan of the Japanese version, but I wish they used the English dub names in the subs” demographic. 99% of actual dub fans will not watch it subbed, or if th...

Re: The Broli movie will use dub names in its subtitles, at Toei's request. Could this become the new "standard"?

The dub very rarely uses Son Goku (much less Son Gohan and Son Goten) so does it mean it'll be always Goku, Gohan and Goten? This is an enormous downgrade. I hope it doesn't affect the Spanish, French and German releases but if they rely on the FUNimation scripts then they will. From what I can tel...

Freeza is now Frieza and Bra is now Bulla... I don’t know what to say anymore. Every week it seems like some new BS pops up and ruins everything. Whether it’s Funi’s embarrassing new Blu-rays or Toei forcing them to use dub names on the subtitle track, the shit doesn’t end. I have a bad feeling that...

They don’t care about Vic. All those anime youtubers “covering” the case are doing it for the clicks. They don’t give a shit about Vic or his fans, and they’re using the stupid Vic supporters for money.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

If the footage is indeed from previous releases, Funimation would have already made that clear to stop all this speculation. The fact that they’re silent on it even after receiving hundreds of tweets telling them it sucks shows that the product we are getting is exactly what’s shown in the video.

It’s probably both. I’m sure a lot of the younger, teenage Vic supporters are just stupid and don’t understand what they’re saying, but I do agree that a majority of the older supporters are indeed doing it for malicious reasons.

Re: Is DBS: Broly overrated?

No, I genuinely think that this movie deserves the praise it gets. Obviously it’s not the greatest work of fiction ever, but it’s a fantastic step in the right direction for Dragon Ball. The new designs, steller animation, and “new” characters are all great. If everything turns out well with Super 2...
