Re: What do you want the next DragonBall series to be like?

I just want them to use the Shintani designs and make a well made show. I don’t like throwing out fanfic ideas about what I’d like to see because it’s probably gonna be garbage if it ends up like that. Just give me a well produced show with whatever Toriyama has cooked up. If the story sucks, then i...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

I just want the game to have decent length. Anywhere between a 20-30 hour experience would be solid. Anything less would be a disappointment, considering this is a single player RPG that probably won’t have much, if any, replay value.

Re: With DragonBall getting more and more global, it's time to include more lgbtqia+ characters

Super Goku isn’t a Mary Sue either. He constantly forgets important items in the Future Trunks arc and doesn’t win like 80% of his fights against meaningful opponents. I don’t think there is a single Mary Sue in Dragon Ball, other than MAYBE Super Broly or a fusion like Gogeta or Vegetto.

Re: Should Z get yet another redub in English?

I mean with a complete redub the scripts and stuff will all be changed too, not just a voice here and there. I’m thinking of a “let’s fix everything” type of redub, which would cause A LOT of things from DB and GT to stick out and not match at all with Z.

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I don’t know if this will be considered unpopular or not, but I wouldn’t care if they completely redubbed the series properly in English. It won’t “fix” anything and 99% of people who watch the Japanese version would stick with the Japanese version. The dub fans would get angry and there would be ev...

Re: Should Z get yet another redub in English?

At this point, does anyone really care? People who don’t like the English dub watch the Japanese version, and people who like the dub would get mad. I know that I personally wouldn’t care since I’ve permanently switched over to the Japanese version a few years back. There’s also the Kai dub fans, bu...

Re: Does Dragon Ball as a Franchise goes in your right Direction ?

If I’m understanding right, then no it did not go in my direction... kinda. I remember as a kid I would imagine stuff like Super Saiyan 10 and thought it would be cool that after 10 you restart at 1, but your hair turns blue. I guess I kinda got what I wanted from a long time ago. But overall I’m ha...

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...

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.

Favorite Character: Son Goku

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...

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.
