Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 39 - DBZ episode 18-22 (CURRENT WEEK)

I enjoy how the lines between kids and adults are blurred in the series. It makes sense for a cartoon world. You get adults who go all out on children in battle and have no qualms with taking their lives. It's a nice bit of fantasy for kids in the audience who dream of playing with the big boys and ...

Re: I feel like the slow pacing for DBZ in the anime and filler works to its advantage

I think episode count doesn't matter as much as how well the time is being used and what works best for the story. For some series, a 90 episode saga may fall short. Maybe a story might need a 200 episode arc, I can’r think of a single series where a 90 episode saga feels short or any story that wo...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Um... isnt that what it is already? ALSO What is wrong with having an alternative? Nobody is pushing dubs down your throat. AND THE JAPANESE DUB TOO! It's primary function is not to serve people with disabilities or any specific niche market. I would say it is being "pushed down our throats", becau...

Re: Does English Dragon Ball need higher profile actors?

Wow. Did not know that about Sailor Moon's production. Maybe things weren't so bad with Funi's behind-the-scenes practices after all. Maybe there is just something inherently wrong with dubbing anime altogether. Perhaps it should have remained a relic of the past? Nuthing lol. But it does show that ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 39 - DBZ episode 18-22 (CURRENT WEEK)

The fake moon episode was a poor choice by Toei. Especially considering Gohan's previous transformation only a few episodes prior. The Goku's spaceship element was also foolish. The worst thing though is that the episode messes with Gohan's Oozaru transformation against Vegeta. It doesn't have the i...

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

They might have to change Cooler's backstory to make him fit better. His original movie took place shortly after Freeza and King Cold came to Earth so they might have to come up with a different reason why this Cooler showed up decades after his family members were killed. Coola came to Earth after...

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

Yeah, a revamped Coola seems logical. Maybe even have him resurrect King Cold or something. Garlic Junior can also return. Maybe he revives his father and they team up. Or maybe he had a son/daughter (Garlic III) and they team up. A rebooted Slug might work, and they can lean into the Namekian mytho...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 38 - DBZ episode 13-17 (CURRENT WEEK)

The whole encounter with Gozu and Mezu in Hell comes from Journey to the West. It was also previously referenced in episode 81 of DB, Goku Goes to Demon Realm. These filler appearances by Lunch don't really do the character any favors. I think Toei clearly didn't know what to do with her without Tor...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

I have no idea why they spell Radits' name with a z either. I thought it was because of the small tsu in ラディッツ radittsu . Don't double consonant words ending with an 'S' sound get adapted into Zs from time to time? Radish is ラディッシュ, Radits' name is ラディッツ. Toriyama just swapped the shu (シュ) for a ts...

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

The counter point is that, its not the only moment in the series where some one is brutally beat down for an extended period, I feel like their's a level of innocence being played up because Videl is female but how is she any more innocent than Gohan getting beaten up by Recoome or Nappa? It's not ...

Re: Kakarot vs Kakarotto - The Vegerot/Vegetto(ito) effect

My problem with FUNimation's "Broly" is they pronounce it like BRO-ly, when his name is a play on the word "broccoli". And I don't think the Japanese phonetics are an excuse. The "-ly" spelling obscures the pun even worse. Who cares about an official movie poster? Accuracy is accuracy. Or if not acc...

Re: Which character and/or plotline in the franchise is the biggest waste of potential?

Agree about Gohan in high school. I would have loved to see more of him and Videl up to stuff in Satan City. Plus Erasa, Sharpner and the gang at Orange Star High. What a great cast.

I would have watched a series of OVAs with them in it or at least a spinoff manga.

Re: Does anyone else feel that much of the DB fandom enforces low standards?

I see Gohan as being a kinder and gentler soul that wouldn't hold grudges just because of a beatdown. This isn't a grudge. It literally just happened to him. I don't expect him to hold a grudge but jeez I would expect him to act like any normal person and not act like he wasn't just beaten to death...

Gohan was just almost beaten to death and Gohan's acting cordial with Vegeta? Vegeta flew off at the end of the last episode and now he's on the ground and no one thinks that's weird. I don't think Gohan's attitude was unusual. These guys are beaten up all the time so it's not a huge deal. I think ...

Re: Has there even been an official "main characters" list?

i don't really know how you can consider yamcha a main character and not tenshinhan. Tenshinhan and Chiao Tzu were always treated as "outsiders" in my view. Partly because of their status as Crane school students. They then join the crew a few arcs in and are prominent for a while, but then get kil...

He definitely still carries a lot of evil momentum from the previous two arcs, it's really cool. Still doesn't make his sudden turn for five minutes in the Android Arc any less bizarre though.
