Re: Vic Mignogna

That's a little disturbing, but that level of broken justification and rationalization is, ironically, a benefit. The less remorseful he acts, the clearer the picture becomes of his behavior. It basically is saying "I'm well-aware, and I'm not ashamed", and as much as that frames his behavior even w...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Well the thing is, I would bet that EVERYONE HERE believes in innocent until proven guilty to most degrees. We just also believe that he has, in fact, been proven guilty. There is no proper origin point for the photos, the victims, their testimony, and that of his coworkers and con staff otherwise. ...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Not really sure what "make him non-profitable" would even entail, other than not going to cons he's at and telling other people to not go to cons he's at, or maybe complaining to con staff and those in charge about him.

And uh...well? There's really nothing wrong with that.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

They're not animation-friendly, but they're not pleasing to look at, which is the real problem. They flatten the facial features into very boxy-looking eyes and big hole-in-face noses. Their hair is incredibly rigid, as is most of their musculature and the folds in their clothing, which leads to a l...

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

If he's syncing it to Kai's dub audio with the Kikuchi score out of accuracy, I can only imagine that he'd be keeping the original intro themes.

Re: Vic Mignogna

No, Vic's still in the home release. I can't say I expected otherwise, but I wish he'd been replaced, even before the scandal. He just isn't good in that role, at all. I only wish Broly had been recast before the movie came out. I don't remember who said it here, but a good point was made that if he...

Oh no, it's absolutely an English-speaking fandom specific thing (okay Latin American fans too), Japanese fans don't have nearly the weird hangups of western ones.

Re: Wait a minute, could Kara Edwards do a good Kid Goku??

God, don't remind me of that. First time the TV series ever gets dubbed and it's only the THIRD season, none of the others. Yeah that makes sense, never start from the current season or god forbid the beginning.

Re: Wait a minute, could Kara Edwards do a good Kid Goku??

Why hire a Nadolny soundalike when they could hire someone good? Taylor is good, I would say better than Clinkenbeard, who is ALSO good, just not good for THIS role. Most of the people that complain about Gohan in Kai are doing it because of how it compares to Nadolny's Gohan (a fact which baffles ...

Re: Wait a minute, could Kara Edwards do a good Kid Goku??

I'm pretty certain they'll just use Clinkenbeard again, the only way I can really see her being recast is for a more major part as kid Goku, i.e. a redub of classic DB. Which is annoying, because that's really the only sort of thing I would really NEED a new Kid Goku VA for anyway, and it is most li...

Re: Interesting or funny pictures thread

I'm not saying that all GT fans, or even very many at all are like this, but of the people who have that sort of weird my-show-is-the-only-real-one mentality, it's seemingly a lot more prominent on that side.

Re: Vic Mignogna

My skepticism is "constantly in Vic's favor" as you put it because much like the courts, he is innocent until proven guilty in my eyes. I also try not to throw his accusers under the bus as they all have the possibility of proving his guilt in some way. My philosophy in no way supports believers of...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Well it obviously isn't self-explanatory, because this fanbase is a mess in terms of figuring out how it does actually work. I mean, does being transformed increase your resilience or just how hard you can hit? To what degree does ki translate into physical force, because it obviously isn't the same...

Re: Wait a minute, could Kara Edwards do a good Kid Goku??

I say it every time one of these threads happens, but Courtenay Taylor is a really good vocal match for Stephanie Nadolny in OK KO. I could barely tell the difference between the two until I looked up specifically which episodes which actress took on for the character (the most I can say is that Nad...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Saying they are false is too absolute for me as there could always be evidence that helps support them that pops up. Monica Rial alleges on her Twitter that the truth will come out. So I think I should wait and see. But since so far I don't think there is enough evidence either way I'm gonna defaul...

Re: What Can Or Might Be Vegeta's Next Transformation?

Well if you want to fight against saiyan-only transformations, utilize and improve the transformations that aren't specific to saiyans. Ultra Instinct is obviously the most recent example of this, but there's also stuff like kaio-ken and...well no, that's really the only two, and kaio ken isn't real...

Why does it have to be only those two that you mentioned? Let me ask you again, since it seems like you missed it before: What do you actually believe ? Because there is no doubts that the allegations have been made. Are they true or not? If not, what is the explanation other than "they lied to att...

What do you actually believe, then? Are the victims telling the truth, or aren't they? Because if you think they're not, then there isn't really a good way of explaining why they accused Vic.
