Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

The title seems very flame baity to me. Nothing beats the original Japanese score if you ask me. The majority of Kokonoe's threads since returning from their temporary ban have been transparently bait-based, and if they think we don't see that, then... Hmm. People respond in good faith so we let th...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

I've always preferred Team Faulconer to Kikuchi myself, although Kikuchi has grown on me quite a bit over the years. I don't think the Faulconer score gets enough credit for how it handled some of the more peaceful scenes, like Goku saying goodbye to Mystic Gohan, or the part where everyone gets re...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Even though I disagree, it's your opinion at the end of the day. I think the Japanese OST could've used a little more variety (Toei being Toei), but it's hard for me to say a replacement score is objectively better than the score it was originally created for How respectable of you you are quite th...

Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Like when it comes to being more modern the Faulconer Productions OST has a lot more going for it than the Kikuchi score which goes for a more old-timey kind of thing. Even in the era it debuted in, it was still a mismatch of content of the time. Faulconer Production's used the latest synth tech to ...

Re: How did you feel the first time you saw Bulma's panties in Dragon Ball?

That sequence was so confusing when I first read it. I think my sister put it best. "He's like ten, you dumb bitch." As someone who watches over K-8 (and some High School)... I've seen some pretty perverted 10 year olds. Whether they were actually that way, or just regurgitating what they saw on TV...

How did you feel the first time you saw Bulma's panties in Dragon Ball?

Like we all grew up with the series, mostly when we were kids and seeing something like that was probably surprising for most kids in western countries.

How did you react?

For me I was at first shocked but I think even at that age I was liking what I was seeing.

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

Actually, yes. I would love to see romantic scenes of Luffy and Nami holding hands, kissing, talking about their likes and dislikes and trying on clothes together between plot-heavy scenes. It would be majorly refreshing and relatable. Throw in scenes of Robin struggling with deciding if she wants ...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

So wasting the plot for mediocre romance is called being well rounded? You know how boring that would be if Luffy was out here trying to express his feelings for Nami and everything? That'd waste so much time. I much prefer developing the characters than inferior romance subplots like Naruto that a...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

Pokémon is a video game first and foremost. The anime is a promotional tool. And there is no good narrative reason for any series that supposedly has an ending in mind to go for 1500 episodes. It doesn't take that long to develop the characters and the world. There is. Because unlike what you're ac...

People have an irrational hatred of deliberately cartoony art styles. I don't understand it myself and it doesn't make any sense but that's just how they are. Haha which is funny cause Dragon Ball is very cartoony! It's remained consistent the entire time. Wait, so it stays this bad the whole way t...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

You go to shonen for romance? Thank god they don't put that in, not even Naruto and Dragon Ball does that despite having pairings. Romance is ill-fitting. I expect works--especially long works--to have well rounded elements, that means some romance to them. Naruto has it's issues in beating around ...

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

I feel like that would imply One Piece understands the concept of a beginning, middle, end. It’s like Pokemon. The premise of “catching them all and being a Pokemon master” stopped being a believable endgame back in like I dunno 2002. The difference is that One Piece is getting to its endgame (desp...

You do know Oda wrote the ending from the very start right? Unlike Toriyama he actually plans things out.

Try actually reading the series and complete Water 7 and see why it's good.

Re: I've been thinking and honestly One Piece seems superior to Dragon Ball?

One Piece is three-to-four-times longer than it needs to be and completely lacks romance, two things that drive me up the wall. I stopped following the series during Fishman Island when I realized I wasn't reading a comic, I was reading a story outline and character notes copy-pasted into JUMP. The...
