Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 3 - DB episodes 11-15

On one hand, I'm curious what "a hero-hero, pafu-pafu, kyoi-kyoi, or an inguri-monguri" would be, and I find it mildly annoying that the subs just romanise those things, no note, nothing to explain what you're reading... On the other hand, maybe I'm better off not knowing. :lol: From what I underst...

Re: What if dragon ball was a comic book series?

He's the son of a dying race sent to Earth by his parents in their last escape pod. He is unfathomably more powerful than any human. The "higher powers" of Earth and the Universe consistently find themselves forced to seek out his help to deal with threats because no other creature except other mem...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

And while I agree in essence that Goku should have energy and a little odd (not wild), the performance still needs to be good. Kelamis is over the top, but not in a good way. Does the performance really need to be "good" though? I mean if you have a bad performer who captures the essence of a chara...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

I never even noticed the scream until people started mentioning it. I just thought Kelamis resembled Nozawa's Goku in general. He may not have had enough time to develop his Goku, but he definitely left an impression with the short time he had. I agree that Movie One is probably his best work. He ki...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

The only issue I have with Corlett as Goku is that it started the trend of giving Goku a "Superman"-type voice, which, while pleasant to listen to and well acted, makes Goku too "smart" a lot of the time. Kelamis does a good job of mixing in some goofy-ness with his Goku, especially in the Pioneer ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Getting back to my point from earlier, it's kinda weird that they cast her in those roles. You'd think they'd cast differently & I don't buy the "Gohan is a mini-Goku" logic. Literally, that's something the anime staff came up with. He & Goku are vastly different characters, even as kids. Like, not...

Re: Personal Thoughts on the Ocean Dub

Yes fond memories of the original Ocean era. Would have preferred more of that instead of what we got. Peter Kelamis was just awesome. Love all of the acting and music. I've come to really appreciate the dudes playing Yamcha and especially Tien. Classic stuff all around.

But like... 90% of her is exposed when she's wearing that...
Whoops... Guess "outerwear" was the wrong term. I meant "not underwear".

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 2 - DB episodes 6-10

If not armor, then certainly some kind of metallic wear of sorts. She's obviously battle-ready with the destructive head gear. And there's that clang when Goku taps her crotch with his foot.

Being a princess and daughter of the fearsome Gyuumao, it makes sense.

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 2 - DB episodes 6-10

So, uh... Chi-Chi's wearing a thong and bra in these episodes... and she's twelve. It's not underwear, though, it's armor. If that makes a difference. I like it, but I can see how it might be problematic. The humor in these episodes continues to be top notch. Particularly Oolong and Puerh's transfo...

Re: Yet Another Dub Error

Didn't Tien have two different voice actors back then? One that did Season Three before the other guy? Maybe the redubbing process is responsible.

That "Yamucha" spelling in the subtitles is really annoying. I wonder what the thought process was behind it. Just to be different from the dub? sorry i just thought it looked better, and it's what I'm used too. Sorry, that wasn't directed towards you or anyone else. I was referring to the subs not...

"Old Lady Paozu"
Huh. Is she named after the mountain? (Or was Mt. Paozu a dub invention? I get the sense it came from a Daizenshuu)
Baozi or Pao Tzu is a type of Chinese steamed bun with filling. The mountain has the same name, which is anime-only I believe, and did not appear until the Z-era.

Re: Dragon Ball rewatch, week 1 - DB episodes 1-5

There were also those licensing issues with Trimark back in 2001 that delayed the home video release of the first arc for a few years in the US. Of course the episodes were still redubbed and aired on Toonami, but I think maybe Funimation was putting most of its efforts into eps 14 onwards to begin ...

Re: Do You Consider Path to Power more of a GT movie than DB?

Yeah I've never considered it to be a "Dragon Ball" film and I always dislike when it's referred to as "DB Movie 4" or whatever. It's the Anniversary movie in my mind. The GT elements are obvious but not enough for me to call it a GT film.

Hell, they have scenes where the rangers, demorphed, will straight-up talk to rubber-suited monsters dubbed over later in post by their voice actors &, in one case I know of, had a monster marry an old Japanese woman played entirely for comedy. Again, it's a fantasy show. It makes sense to have hum...

Re: What if dragon ball was a comic book series?

I personally have never gotten into American comics precisely because I find it so confusing. I look at any character's Wikipedia page whether it's a Spider-Man character, Superman, Batman, etc. and everyone has multiple sections that explain each canon. There is no single, definitive version of th...
