Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

Seriously. If he wasn't in FMA, no one would know who he is. Wouldn't surprise me. He was in Street Fighter II V, an anime that was something of an introduction (to anime in general) for me, but he was in the dub that my territory didn't get. So I've never heard his performance. That's just the fir...

What about this scene? Did it not show Goku get overwhelmed by rage?

Re: How many series exist for you?

3 for me:
DB/DBZ (I consider Kai/Kai TFC to be a recut of Z rather than a new entry)
DBGT
DBS (and any possible continuation of Super, regardless of what it might be called)

Heroes I don't know enough about, but I kind of see it as a tie-in with the game, rather than a series of its own.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Just a heads up, picked up the Australian release and it doesn't have the green tint. Runs at 23.976p, but it looks like Madman might have their own encode because it looks like they authored their own release (rather than porting Funi's or Manga's). Haven't noticed any macroblocking and similar as...

I'd be all in for a Boo and Mister Satan odd-couple sitcom that throws a bunch of Toriyama 1 shot characters in as guests.
This would be amazing.

Forgive me if this has been addressed, but any guesses as to whether the Madman release will be based on Funimation's Region A release, or Manga UK's Region B one? I'm curious to know if it might have the tint, but Madman does have a history of sourcing discs directly from Manga. Much appreciated. ...

Re: What I love about the more recent fights

The best scenario would be to have Toriyama script the fights pace by pace like he used to (since he is indeed the one true master of creating well coreographed, exciting DB fights, there is no question about that) but to have a DB fanboy sitting next to him and be like "you do remember the gallic ...

Re: A question about the Super History Book

Excellent! Thank you for the info. I'm honestly pretty comfortable with some kanji, but if I find one I don't know (and can't find it online quickly enough) I'm likely to sit there for a while with a dictionary searching for it. At least with furigana, I'll be able to quickly find the meaning of new...

A question about the Super History Book

Hello.

I saw this for sale in Kinokuniya last week, didn't buy it at the time, but thought about picking it up later. I was curious (if anyone has this) if any/some/all text in this uses furigana above kanji? I can read Japanese, but I'm not able to read 100% of kanji.

Any advice is appreciated.

Re: How will FUNimation screw up "Frost"?

Besides which...I don't know this for certain, but sometimes, I wonder if changing Freeza to Fr i eza was not their change, but rather, a result of the horrid translations that Toei provided them. Probably not, of course, but I can't help but wonder if that's the case. I could DEFINITELY see that. ...

Re: Would you mind if DB came back to a kids tv channel?

Even if a cut version doesn't air in the US, it might be useful in other countries like the UK, which I'm not sure if it ever broadcast Kai uncut. Same with Australia. Though I can't recall if Kai was uncut as I remember it airing late on weeknights. It may have gotten an initial run at an earlier ...

This.

In regards to DBZ, I doubt Funi would let go of it, or even sublicense it. Would be wonderful to see it from an alternate perspective so to speak.

Specific episodes that highlight differences in speech?

Hello. I've seen DB, Z and GT in Japanese and English but I'm in need of some specific direction. I've got to do an assessment for a Japanese class that has to deal with differences in Japanese speech styles. I'm allowed to choose from drama, anime, and films. From there I need to select a few minut...
