Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

5 years later, Funimation releases a new DBZ blu-ray set and claims it fixes all the problems “hardcore” fans had with the 30th anniversary set. Footage is revealed, it has grain, colors look good, and then, 16:9. “They didn’t like the 4:3 release,” says a Funimation employee in a blog post. “So we...

Don’t let some random on youtube trigger you. That place is full of people who say dumb shit to piss others off.

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

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 ...

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

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...

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

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...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

This series is cursed. There’s no other way to put it. Whoever at Funimation is making these decisions has to be doing this on purpose now. I cannot begin to understand their thought process.

Re: Vic Mignogna

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.

Re: Vic Mignogna

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...

The more arguments I see about this topic, the more I want law to be a mandatory class in high school or college. If most people took a law class, we wouldn’t be seeing nearly as much of this “where’s the proof, innocent until proven guilty” shit.

Re: When did you start liking Vegeta?

To me it’s more appropriate to say when I STOPPED liking Vegeta. I’ve pretty much always liked Vegeta. Sure he got annoying in the Cell arc, but I never started to hate the character because of that. Then came Super and the ToP arc. For the first time in my life I started to hate Vegeta, and wished...

Re: When did you start liking Vegeta?

I have no clue where you got Gohan being bitter towards Goku in Super from. Goku is with Goten because he’s like 13 and still lives in his house. Gohan is in his 20’s and is living in his own house with his family. I don’t understand what the problem with this is. Everytime he talks about him he se...

Re: When did you start liking Vegeta?

No? Do you know how many times Goku has praised his son or been supportive of his decision to quit fighting? Or how he was proud of his performance in the Tournament of Power and trusted him enough to make him team leader (even if it didn’t really mean anything)? Gohan is also a grown man with his ...

Re: When did you start liking Vegeta?

I liked him from the start he was an awesome villian then grew in to great anti-hero then hero. To people saying he had no character growth in super or super undoes it. Have they seen super? Sure he has his rivalry with Goku still but it's more a friendly rivalry now. Super also added - better fath...

Well it’s either their planning/guest management team is really incompetent and didn’t forsee something like this happening, or they were forced to bring Vic in by some other means.
