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

I agree about the Saiyan arc and Namek arc filler, but the Buu arc filler worked in its favor? It's an arc that's already too long to begin with. A lot of the Boo saga filler was self-contained arcs or segments, and while of course the fights against Boo are longer in the anime than the manga...you...

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

I think the Saiyan and Boo saga filler was the best honestly. Saiyan filler for the training and Goku on Snake Way, and a lot of the Boo saga filler is fun because it's self-contained stories and didn't intrude on the main story too badly like the Saiyaman eps, the Pikkon tournament, the extra Goten...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Isn't FUNI owned by Sony? I mean they're a million dollar company, this isn't 1999 anymore when they were scraping to get by. They license dozens of anime every year. It's mind blowing they wouldn't be able to fund a DBZ redub. And as said think of this long term. Dragonball Z is an evergreen series...

Re: What Inconsistencies &/or Retcons You Wished Were Never Made In Dragon Ball Super?

I still have no idea what the Super Dragonballs are to this day and where they came from. How are there giant dragonballs the size of planets? Why have we never heard of these before? How were they created? It boggles the mind. Another thing is, "Earth's Hell." Yes I know hell in the manga never exi...

Look at George Lucas and Star Wars, or what's-her-name and Harry Potter.

Creators are known to revisit their past work and "change things" to fans dismay.

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

I'm sure if he got offered a big paycheck he wouldn't say no to redubbing Goku. I always see him complaining when he finishes voice work on a show and says, "I need a new job." Dragonball has given him a consistent source of income because he's always dubbing the videogames every year as well...so h...

Re: Things you never noticed before

Even though it's a filler scene, Yamcha and Tien get a hit on Piccolo when they're training on King Kai's planet. For some reason that amused me.

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

Yeah the FUNI VA's didn't really get decent in their roles till the Buu saga dub. That's when they started sounding like their modern takes, especially for Goku, Vegeta and Krillin. It's still rough in the early Cell saga although they improve as it goes on. Although now it's kinda moot with kid Goh...

So are people under the impression a new dub wouldn't sell? Imagine the promotion, "A new redubbed Dragonball Z and new DVD boxsets!" and imagine how they could re-sell it to Cartoon Network/Toonami again the same way they did with Kai about a decade ago. It's not like the old dub is going anywhere,...

Yes there's Kai, but I do not understand why FUNI never did a re-dub of DBZ from start to finish since 2005 when they redubbed the first Saiyan and half the Namek arcs. They're still releasing the old outdated dubs on DVDs. So we now have a mix of a 2005 dub of the Saiyan and first half of the Freez...

I wish they kept in some of the Ginyu force comedy scenes like the chocolate bar and Ginyu throwing Freeza's men in the air. The Ginyu Force were over with so quickly it was kind of funny they made a new theme song for them and everything. Yeah, Kai made Yamcha/Tenshinhan/Chaotzu even more minor cha...

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

I just recently watched all of Kai for the first time after having never seen it before. While I know the manga is also "fast" as well, I have to say after watching Kai...I honestly feel like the "slow pacing" of DBZ actually works to it's advantage. While watching Kai I feel like things, "don't hav...

Re: So is this whole Moro arc basically the, "Garlic Jr. saga" of Super?

If the Moro arc never receives an anime adaption than it's just filler. Just a "what if" part of the manga storytelling.

We know IF it's adapted to the anime it will most likely be heavily altered or updated, just like the manga handled the TOP completely different than the anime.

For spanish speaking people, do male characters names ending with "a" seem weird?

As most hispanics and spanish speaking people know, names or words that end with "a" in the spanish language are viewed as feminine. In Dragonball, many male characters like Vegeta, Nappa, Freeza, etc. end with "a" despite being male characters. How do the spanish language dubs handle this? Do spani...

Re: So is this whole Moro arc basically the, "Garlic Jr. saga" of Super?

If the anime does adapt this story, I imagine it's going to be changed anyway drastically for the anime adaption. Just look at how different the tournament of power was in the manga than the anime, all the fights were done differently until the late stuff with Goku/Jiren. So if you don't like it in ...

As of now we have no idea if the Moro arc will ever be adapted to anime form or if it'll remain exclusive to the manga. However let's pretend they actually do adapt it to the anime if/when Super ever returns. I can't help but feel it's basically Super's equivalent to what the Garlic Jr. saga was to ...

Why are people excited for this? Have people forgotten how he handled the cast in the tournament of power? Krillin does nothing and flies off stage. Tenshinhan is defeated even worse than the anime.

Kai is just a directors cut. It's not meant to replace DBZ.

Basically it's DB/DBZ/Super
Or manga DB/DBZ/Super
