Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

Chris Sabat is a total assclown who has no respect for the integrity of the series by adding meme jokes, pop culture references, references to the original Z dub, and generally ruining the dub of Dragon Ball (ex. Super) with what he does. He should be fired as ADR director for this show and have Col...

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I think the role should go to whomever voices the character best, and fits the role. I saw Mike's post about that being a utopian idea where racism doesn't exist anymore, but it is the best way to be fair. Let anyone audition and pick fairly. That shouldn't be difficult to do, and it isn't my fault ...

Re: Nozawa: her best possible goodbye as Goku

Jesus Christ, can we please stop predicting the death of women like this? Are there any other women whose deaths people have been predicting or something? I'm speaking generally, because this whole phenomenon of creating threads about when a some poor old woman is going to die is just fucking terri...

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

I figure they didn’t want to roll with DB because it was pretty old at that point. Early DB has the same art style as Dr. Slump, which Toriyama started to draw in 1979. It looks “old” inasmuch as it doesn’t look like the sort of anime Gen would have seen in the 90s: sharper lines, hair highlights, ...

Why didn't Toei backup the OG audio to another form of media?

I have seen Ajay's video about why Dragon Ball's audio sounds so bad. I understand how Toei wouldn't want to use the space to save a reel of master audio and one for the film itself. However, even in the late 80's, media formats such as cassette tapes were available. Compact discs were made in the e...

Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

There is nothing wrong with believing a woman needs to be saved/helped, and there isn't anything wrong with believing the opposite like you do. Neither viewpoint is misogynistic or "dumb." The former viewpoint is definitely misogynistic, at least. It really isn't. It says nothing bad about women. I...

Re: What would Toei have done with GT if it had gone on longer?

If a five year old child isn't watching a cartoon and thinking "Damn, this girl's cool!" like they were a character of a different gender then there's something wrong. Morishita's idea of "Oh, it's the girl therefore she needs to be saved" is some BS that goes to show a major character flaw within ...

Re: Would you say Toei misunderstood Dragon Ball?

I think they do, at least on the topic of Goku. There is an interview with Toriyama where he talks about the "evilness of Goku" and how he commonly did what his readers begged him not to do (ex. killing off Vegeta on Namek). Toriyama mentioned that Toei made Goku more heroic than he is in the manga,...

Re: Is Super Sayain Rage, SSBKK non canon to the DBS Manga

Incorrect. Toriyama wrote BoG, RoF and Broly. Nothing you posted changes the fact; what he pens, is the actual canon. Technically he didn't. He came on to BoG after Toei decided to make it and changed numerous aspects of the movie. However, he did not write it at all nor conceive of it, and he didn...

He also got jumped from behind and almost lost all of his energy until Gohan saved him. Lastly, #19 and #20 were the original artificia...

Re: If Future Trunks Somehow Revived His Z Senshi Instead Of Going Back In Time?

I believe the Z fighters would still lose simply from seeing them lose against present #17 and #18. In the future, they were weaker, but so were the Z fighters.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

But the fact remains that DNR problems with live-action films happen WAY more on BR then on DVD because film studios feel like they have to make films look "modern" for HD presentations, so in a way it does have to do with the format, because the studio never used DNR to that extent on any of the D...

Re: How did you come to know about dragonball?

It was 1997 and I was 5 years old. The New Adventures of Johnny Quest was supposed to be on, but when I switched to channel 59 (Cartoon Network/Toonami), I instead was greeted to a gigantic ape rampaging. The moon then got blown up by a green dude wearing a turban.

lol caulifla is the best female character in the franchise which is not difficult because most are terrible. Caulifla is the best character because she's cute, pretty, kickass, and basically a female Goku. I love her. Show some damn respect. If anyone in Super sucks (who's a girl), it's Kale. Scare...

In my opinion of course. If you disagree with me that's perfectly fine. I hate Gotenks. A lot. Probably my least favorite canon character of the entire franchise. I admit that he has some fun techniques, like his Kamikaze Ghosts, but his arrogant personality is just so irritating ... Gotenks is far...
