Fan Animation Thread

Hey all! I thought it would be cool to make a thread where we can recommend and discuss Dragon Ball fan animations across YouTube and the internet. This can encompass almost anything, from series like dragon ball absalon to one-off short clips. I’ll start: https://youtu.be/s-hLuda5xm4 Animations of ...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I tried asking this in the SDBH thread right after seeing the episode, but it got buried:

Does anyone know if Vegetas flashbacks in that episode were newly drawn/animated? Or recycled footage?

Re: Dragon Ball Super Movie #2 Coming 2022! (Toriyama Scripting!)

I do hope Broly and this movie get retold. I would hate for the anime to feel incomplete like the manga feels when it skipped RoF and Broly. I strongly disagree, I think the movie retellings at the beginning of Super made those stories worse, IMO. The movies were great (IMO) and we’ll paced as movi...

Re: Official "Super DB Heroes 2018 Promotional Anime" Discussion Thread

Hot damn this episode was good. Were vegeta’s flashbacks doctored up Z footage, or newly animated? To celebrate Goku day they gave us an episode with 3 Masako Nozawa characters, two of them Goku and one of them figuratively Goku (at least in Tree of Might that was the intention with Turles’s design)...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I don’t think this is unpopular here, but here goes: In my opinion, the original Japanese audio for DBZ Movie 5 (Cooler 1) is leagues and bounds superior to the US Funimation version. I noticed a lot of people really seem to like that heavy metal soundtrack in the original funimation release, but I ...

Re: Specifically for those who prefer the Funi 'Orange Bricks' dub over JPN and Funi Kai, what are your reasons?

I am not one of those people, but I’ve heard this about people who don’t like the original Japan audio: - Some people don’t concentrate as well, while reading subtitles. - this is probably tied to nostalgia, but the Japanese voice cast is so different that they may shy away. Think of how different N...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

I just learned today that Goku’s fear of needles is not only in GT, because I was looking for GT clips and found a couple DBZ ones. I’m happy now I can just confidently say “Goku is afraid of needles”, not “Goku is afraid of needles in GT”

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Mood whiplash isn't really a thing in DB, or at least not a negative one. It's always mixed tones, even in the most dire of moments and for anyone thinking Goku and Vegeta always take fights for the fate of the world seriously, I implore you to remember that Goku cared more about winning the 23rd T...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Goku is not like the left picture in Z. That’s fair, I can’t really dispute that since I didn’t really see Z after the “namek will explode in 5 minutes” part (note: I never saw Namek explode. I got impatient :lol: ) I don’t remember him being quite like that in GT either, but I definitely remember ...

I know its not really necesary but the Latin American version does. Every Son Family Kid Voice is Laura Torres sans the few times she was replaced due to pay disputes.
In Funimation I don’t think they do. Kid Goku, GT kid Goku, and kid Gohan are all the same actress. But kid Goten is not

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I do admit that Super seems to over-exaggerate some of his “worse”(?) qualities and it can be frustrating to watch him be an extra dunce and “I just wanna fight” kinda guy. But I still like him (and DBS). The anime staff have genuinely no idea how to balance Goku's personality traits right. Admitte...

My perspective is largely shaped by GT (the first DB show I watched, funimation dubbed) but also the Z movies, and Super, etc He’s funny, a li...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Broly 1 is one of my least favorite DBZ movies, and Lord Slug is one of my favorites. Even though Broly 1 is cool, the first 2 Z Broly movies have the issue (to me) where too much time is spent with one sided Broly beat downs. He just destroys everyone the whole movie. There’s no interesting martial...

Re: Dragon Ball AF Continuation (UnrealEntGaming)

Nice! Is there a "normal" non-youtube version of it? I don’t think so, because Unreal creates this and other manga specifically for narration on the channel. Personally, I have a hunch that this is why it tends to have chunky text boxes. I can say from experience it’s not too bad following along ch...

Re: Dragon Ball AF Continuation (UnrealEntGaming)

As a general review of the manga so far, it feels pretty similar to Unreal’s other manga. My main criticism of it is that it tends to be monologue-heavy. Some text boxes are comically full. And for this manga specifically, I think Xicor is cool but I don’t find much unique about his personality or c...
