Re: All-purpose Dragon Ball sale/trade thread.

Selling some old Dragon Ball VHS tapes for a rather reasonable price. The tapes are Dragon Ball vol 4: The Ox-King of Fire Mountain, Dragon Ball Z-Great Saiyaman: Final Round, Dragon Ball Z-Great Saiyaman: Declaration, Dragon Ball Z-Fusion: Hope Returns (Uncut), Dragon Ball Z-Kid Buu: A New Beginnin...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

Yep. Just as I thought. I can't explain the appeal of Toonami to someone who hasn't experienced it. Can't say I didn't try. I just take objection to someone telling me it's stupid to be a fan of something period. That's my entire point. I don't care what you think Toonami has done or whatever manife...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

You guys may think Appointment TV is dead but the numbers say otherwise, Dragon Ball Super scored 800k viewers and was the 7th most watched thing on TV. But the BIG NUMBERS REALLY show up with Descendants which scored 4 FUCKING MILLION VIEWERS and the Steven Universe movie which also did gangbuster...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

Not really the same thing. You're equating a programming block with the actual program. You have easy access to the program. It's like being nostalgic for VHS. Nothing wrong with having nostalgia, but it's a format that is long since dead for good reason. That's something you can't always get with ...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

I'm seeing a kinda myopic view regarding Toonami. First off, I'm going to address the thing that really set me off. So why is this stupid and long-since antiquated children's cartoon block still relevant to anyone at this stage beyond just raw "mental time travel" nostalgia? And how sad is it that a...

Re: Vic Mignogna

To clarify: it made it onto a local affiliate, not the network. Still big though. My apologies if that came off as misrepresenting that, I didn't realize. I've been unable to watch the video myself (it's like NBC doesn't wanna load for me), so I had to rely on the Twitter user that I found that fro...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Remember how the Dallas Morning News reporting on this was considered a pretty big step up in terms of coverage, considering that prior to that it was only being talked about on anime/video game/"nerd" sites? Well, it's officially hit the really big news spectrum now folks. Sharon Grigsby (who wrot...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

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

Yeah....while most of the changes in the past were minor....this arc seems to be making a lot of character changes such as Gokū not being concerned about Gohan, 17 being way too cocky, and now this. Plus, the acting from many of the cast seems dull. It's almost as if they're tired of doing this. Di...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

And even if Funi were to lose the license, the recording is technically done at Okatron5000, so who's to say the new licensor wouldn't just outsource it to them?

Re: So how does one *correctly* hug their fans?

Going back to the OP's question, it's simple: With consent.

For example: When I recently met Brittany Karbowski, she asked if she could hug me after doing a line request.

Re: Alex Kidd was a Dragon Ball game?!?

The Beatles analogy was a stretch, and perhaps I don't have much perspective considering I wasn't around in the preCartoon Network anime boom era, but from what I can tell, it anime was thing in the US, but there was still a massive boost in popularity during that time towards anime of its ilk.

Re: Alex Kidd was a Dragon Ball game?!?

I think what I'm trying to say is Voltron's success seems mainly about Voltron, whereas the anime boom started in the mid to late 90s seemed to open the flood gates for even more anime on American television, kinda like how The Beatles becoming a hit in America lead to more British rock groups havin...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Honestly still feel an air of confusion about the Nadolny situation, but at least some aspects have cleared up. Still, if her account was hacked, I wish we could hear it from her personally, but I guess it’s possible that she doesn’t want people to harass her about her arrest records. Same. I just w...

Re: Alex Kidd was a Dragon Ball game?!?

You said "Mainstream" not "Major Juggernaut". And Voltron was indeed seen by more people than those who had a Master System. I said global phenomenon and referenced Beatlemania, which was essentially the 60s version of the Pokémon/anime craze in terms of how much cross promotion there was. You're r...

Re: Alex Kidd was a Dragon Ball game?!?

Actually, while Kunzait might resent this, anime was really mainstream too back then! In the form of the DREADED KIDS TV ANIME. Voltron was the number one syndicated kids show and if that's not enough it sold no less than 3 million VHS tapes and not bootleg ones mind you! I stand corrected. Still, ...

Re: Alex Kidd was a Dragon Ball game?!?

On this issue, you kinda miss the point. Yes, it was available, but it didn't become a huge global phenomenon until much later. It was just a niche thing. It's like saying yes, the music of The Beatles was available to Americans before 1964, but Beatlemania in the US didn't truly hit until they land...

The person who said that Nadolny was hacked posted a screenshot of the DMs they exchanged. Of course, the stans are going all out trying to prove the DMs came from a copy account that wasn't actually her, so...believe what you will.

Re: Vic Mignogna

Same. Looking at her tweet likes, she was actually kinda neutral if not leaning more towards KickVic before about two days ago or so, so it would make sense, but there needs to be some sort of evidence
