i mean as a whole, art isn't a indication of quality, something being bad doesn't make it art....it just makes it bad art.

Re: Lunch / Launch

according to a couple of herms' guides from a few years ago, launch is a perfectly valid way to translate her name, and considering the fact that toriyama has forgotten what pun her name is based off of, it's possible that launch is actually what it should be.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

that survey only covered 500 people total over every state + DC, which is literally 10 people per state, it's a super flawed "study" and really doesn't tell you anything. you could "prove" a bunch of stuff with a sample size that small.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

i mean i don't really agree with that, but even so, you're still giving groups who are discriminated against a opportunity, which i turn can open the door more for people in those groups.

Re: Minority representation for minority characters in Voice acting

I think the role should go to whomever voices the character best, and fits the role. I saw Mike's post about that being a utopian idea where racism doesn't exist anymore, but it is the best way to be fair. Let anyone audition and pick fairly. That shouldn't be difficult to do, and it isn't my fault...

Re: The hills we choose to die on and the fights we battle for when it comes to Dragon Ball

The impression I've always gotten is that fatigue was only an issue during the Buu arc, and even then only some of Buu (I sense a lot of enthusiasm during the early Buu arc, and think Toriyama found the idea of a seven year timeskip where a great deal changes rejuvenating). I don't sense any kind o...

Re: “There is nothing to learn from Dragon Ball,” says Akira Toriyama’s editor, Kazuhiko Torishima

i'm like a week late to this, and to be honest he's not wrong, but i will say i do think it's kinda ironic to hear torishima just think it's a dumb manga, when in his Forbes interview he said he was displeased with the dragon ball anime because they weren't taking it seriously enough. obviously ther...

Re: Any DB character themes that are as prominent as Piccolo’s from the original?

Though as Zestanor pointed out before, it does seem that Makafushigi Adventure and its various versions could be considered as "Goku's Theme" though that only works for the original Dragon Ball Anime, and the last time we prominently hear that (if I recall correctly) is in the Garlic Jr. Movie wher...

Re: MistareFusion's Dragon Ball Dissection! (Updated 5/25/20!)

well i love that we get to see cell era gohan in his base form, movie 9 makes gohan look pretty awful lol. it's one of the things i really don't like about the movie, every character feels so worthless during it, it's pretty disappointing. i still really like it, it's one of my favorite dragon ball ...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

Just saying Krillin is one of the characters that doesn’t suffer from the decision to skip Dragon Ball. i'd actually argue kuririn gets treated considerable better in the z portion of the series then he is during the original dragon ball, and his relationship with goku and his status as the main ea...

Re: What would be your ideal Dragon Ball home release?

The big things the Dragon Boxes have going for them are the Japanese title cards, the credits and the next episode previews. The picture quality for them is nothing to write home about. They’re better than the Orange Bricks, but that’s not saying much. I suppose the Levels would be my ideal release...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

isn't justin cook mainly a producer for funi now ? he doesn't seem to be super involved in actually voicing characters, and he's not a particular great VA, can't imagine they would give him the main role of one of their biggest properties.

It's a shame the broadcast audio has all of this associated drama with it because I love that I've been able to remux my R2s with the superior audio.

Re: How do you feel about Dragon Ball references in mainstream media?

the soulja boy dragon ball songs are good much like everything he's done.
