Re: Would you pay Funimation via Kickstarter for a redub of the full Dragon Ball media

If it were a complete, clean slate redub that acted as if previous English voices/lines never existed, they recast from scratch, had a totally different staff for voice direction, AND the dialogue was faithfully translated and localized, yes I would pay decent money for that. I would also watch each...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

It makes me wonder how some of you older fans ever managed to cope back when VHS and DVD releases had Widescreen and Fullscreen versions available. Like, if your parents had gotten you Batman or Star Wars in Fullscreen instead of Widescreen, did you or would you have thrown a fit? No because I didn...

Everyone should take the "Limited" thing with a grain of salt. Amazon's listings are rarely to be trusted.

Re: Vegeta spents most of the time being a douchebag in the orginal manga,does a 180 and never suffers for his crimes

This is kind of what gives Dragon Ball its identity, in my opinion. Goku and the cast are fighters, not superheroes or anything. Now, they DO care about the earth and its inhabitants, but not enough to do things like fight crime or hold others, like Vegeta, accountable for their actions. Their sense...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Recently picked up Budokai Tenkaichi 2 on the last run at my local used game store in the last few days, and thus i'm only missing BT3 out of the entire series as of now. https://i.imgur.com/kbYRxYJ.jpg Oh man, this and BT3 were fun.

Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Kai Recut [WIP, Saiyan to Cell COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WIP]

Did I hear right that there is DB Recut with broadcast audio now? Or is that just for Z? If there is DB Recut with broadcast audio could I get a PM? Thanks.

Re: Avatars galore, DragonBall and more!

Could anyone please make an avatar of the Toyotaro drawing featuring Bardock and SS Goku? I'm on mobile so I'm unable to make it... Due to the nature of the image it's kinda hard to make out details at 100x100, but here's the best that can be done. Unfortunately I can't find a high res version of i...

Re: What's your most recent Dragonball purchase?

Got the GT and Movies Dragon Box sets today, last two I needed. Wasn't impressed with the shipping though considering DHL was my only option (almost double to what EMS would have been) during the current situation, I know not to do that again. :D But glad to finally have all the Japanese sets for t...

Re: Do you think the Boo saga was the most brutal in the series ?

Tonally, the Buu Saga was kind of a mess. It arguably was the most brutal and bleak point in the series, but Toriyama made sure to sprinkle loads of gags and silly aspects to lighten it up. As beautiful as Vegeta's sacrifice is, it has to be overlooked that the immediate reason for sacrificing hims...

Re: Would you say Toei misunderstood Dragon Ball?

I feel like very few understand Dragon Ball in this day and age, and yes, that includes Toei and FUNi; sometimes it seems like even Toriyama himself doesn't understand Dragon Ball anymore. But you know who else that includes? The fans. And not just the nostalgic dub fans, but even people on this si...

Re: SAY-IN - SPECIAL BEAM CAN-IN - SUN GOKU - DESTRUCTO DISK | Why does Dragon Ball STILL suffer with these shortcomings

The thing is, this stuff only bothers certain people. It can be very well true that Special Beam Cannon is in no way a proper translation of Makankosappo, but I could've gone the rest of my life never knowing that, because it doesn't really affect anything. Regardless of what Piccolo shouts before ...

I get the idea that people who whine about this stuff don't seem to understand the differences between Japanese and English. There are idioms, phrases, and whole vocabulary that are untranslatable and just would not work with an english dub Because it's a completely different language. So you have ...

Re: SAY-IN - SPECIAL BEAM CAN-IN - SUN GOKU - DESTRUCTO DISK | Why does Dragon Ball STILL suffer with these shortcomings

Because people prefer warm nostalgia blankets and memes over actual quality dubbing, translation and localization. That’s all there is to it. FUNimation gets away with it because the bar is low, and it’s low because of ‘90s DBZ “purists” (which is such a strange thing when you think about it) and En...

Re: Which Modern DB character do you wish were in Classic DB?

I feel like Beerus and Whis are the only viable options, honestly. That said, they would be really really good I think. I want to see Beerus and Whis interact with Goku just as he's beginning his first adventure with Bulma.

Re: Your ideal Dragon Ball sequel.

My interest in new DB is already razor thin. Getting rid of the thing that makes DB what it is and not just another show about martial artists is the quickest way to get me and others to not care. And there's this too. I think even the majority of people asking for a new cast would end up being dis...

Re: Your ideal Dragon Ball sequel.

Not comparable. Star Trek ( real Star Trek, aka nothing after like 2005 at the latest) is about the world and the situations the characters run into as well as how they deal with them. There is a ton of focus on these situations and therefore there are a lot of important details in the Star Trek un...
