Re: State of the Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z Broadcast Audio?

Regardless of what a handful of us here have access to. It needs to be on an official home release, and we shouldn't be satisfied until it is. Agreed. Though I also still wouldn't be satisfied unless there's none of Funi's shitty DNR or cropping either. Many of us would agree with you, I'm sure.

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Oh, we going with the "they are aliens, thus they can't be Asian?" I agree that the Saiyans would look Asian based on Goku's design origins, but I think it's more that "they are aliens, thus they DON'T HAVE TO BE Asian". Also worth noting that every race in the universe, unless noted like on Namek,...

Re: Looks like Japan have finally ditched the Son "Gokou" spelling!

I did see a Japan-made shirt recently with 'Gokou' on it. Granted I don't know exactly when the shirt was made, but I'm glad to see that that inaccurate spelling might be on the way out.

He kinda reminds me of Astro Boy for some reason, not sure if anyone else sees it.
I see that too, it's the shape of the eyes and the eyelashes (IMO).

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...

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. ...
