Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

Movie 4 is just a mess. The Slug character is such a poor Daimao ripoff. He even has his own Mazoku. Sure, most of the other movies' plots and villains are copies of the show, but this one barely tried. The whole whistling thing with Gohan and Piccolo's ears is tragic (although I like that track a l...

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

I like Movie 11 mostly for continuing the #18/Satan plot, which I enjoy. And seeing Kuririn and 18 fighting some more. I like that they found another way to milk Broli.

Re: Is there a general consensus on what the worst movie is?

What I remember always reading back in the day was that Movie 4 and Movie 11 were the worst of the movies.

To me Movie 4 (Super Saiyajin Son Goku) might just be the worst. Just really poor overall. I enjoy Movie 11 (...the One Who Will Win) quite a bit.

I don't like Movie 7 all that much.

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

Yeah I always liked the Faulconer scores. I would play the MP3s regularly and I think I considered buying the official CDs back then. For me the music is the most memorable thing about the in-house dub. It's not Dragon Ball music, but I thought Faulconer had a great imagination. I appreciated how ea...

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

Definitely nostalgic for it since this was the time I first got into the show. Between watching the new episodes on Cartoon Network, watching the Saban era repeats they would play, hearing about the Japanese version from friends at school, fansub downloads/tapes, and reading about it online, I was i...

He's unoppressed because he's straight? In terms of sexuality (and other social categories), yes he would be privileged and unoppresed. In terms of race, obviously not. It's possible to be both privileged and unprivileged at the same time. Are we going to start weighing these sort of things? Becaus...

Re: Dub Changes That Don't Bother You...that much

The Over 9000 line was a memorable one among fans prior to 2006, and part of that is due to Drummond's delivery as well as the context of the scene itself. However, I doubt it was any kind of big Internet sensation until the YouTube video gave it widespread popularity. I've been thinking about the e...

Re: Petition to use SS, not SSJ, as an abbreviation for Super Saiyan

I agree that SSJ looks better and stands on his own, while SS might be linked to pure horror but Buu's belt didn't read MJ, Vegeta's forehead had an M, not an MJ. That thing were they stored Gohan's power had an M. I always felt SS was for Super Saiyan and SSJ for Super Saiyajin. That "M" symbol is...

Re: You watched DBZ before DB and certain characters didn't make sense

The animal characters did not seem bizarre to me because it's a cartoon. As for the Z-senshi and their relationships, I pretty much just went along with it. It wasn't particularly confusing or complicated in my view. I guess it helps that I was aware of the '95 dub that had aired a few years earlier...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Goten and Kid Trunks are some of the blandest characters Toriyama has ever come up with. And the fact they are thrust into the position of protagonist(s) in the Majin Boo arc makes their portions of the arc the weakest by far. Goten and Trunks are definitely classic "jumped the shark" characters, w...

Re: How was FUNimation able to afford all that licensed band music back in the day?

I think using the licensed music was one of the best decisions that FUNi ever made. Those bands really elevated the material in such a way that resonates. I also believe it to be a logical extension of FUNimation's vision for the series, taking that "hardcore edge" vibe from the show to the next lev...

Re: Manga vs Anime: Story Arcs

The Freeza arc in the anime may seem overly long, but I don't know if it would be as epic as it was without that never-ending feeling. I can't say that I like all of the added filler, but I think the overall length may work in the arc's favor.

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

It matters in the context of what was said previously. The suggestion was to turn him into a respectable black person. I'm saying he's not a black person, he is a genie, a creature or whichever. I don't see how a monster like being would suit him being a human black person. This is what I thought y...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

Maybe change Popo in future editions to be a realistic black man without the caricature elements? That'd be a nice change of pace. He's not a black person. He simply just has black face, which is rooted in many things in Japan like Yokais for example. If anything he's probably based off a Yokai of ...

Speaking of dubisms. I'm sure the vast majority of English speaking fans, including myself, say "Say Yan" and not "Sai Yan".
In my view "Saiyan" is a dub term above all else, and I really can't imagine pronouncing it as "SIGH-yan" or what have you. Of course there are many who do.

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

Well the blackface stereotype doesn't exist in Japan, so when they accidentally draw something similar to it, there's often no one there with the proper cultural background to say 'hold on a minute..." The Blackface stereotype absolutely exists in Japan. It's not an accident that Popo and Black- sa...

I think the writers just decided to make her a teenager instead. If the official timeline was in play, Bra would be around nine years old I believe.
