Maybe they thought calling a scantily clad woman "Lunch" was in poor taste.

Re: DB and Nostalgia

I watched the DBZ "Ocean dub" in syndication during it's initial run over here when I was in 6th grade. I only knew anything about Dragon Ball from reading about it in gaming magazines. I didn't have the internet, and no one I knew watched it and I didn't talk about it with anyone. It aired at 6 in ...

Re: What's the definitive "Goku gets a one-sided ass-whooping" scene?

The fight with Oozaru Vegeta sticks out to me because Goku can't touch him outside of blowing out Vegeta's eye. It takes Goku almost completely out of commission but the fight still goes on with the others. It makes everything feel much more desperate and keeps the tension going. The other fights ju...

Re: How to properly watch GT ?

DBGT is on Hulu again and I just finished DB so I thought I'd give it a shot. Never seen any of it.

This show is dreadful.

Re: The Dragonball Misinformation Thread.

I remember wayyyyyy back in 1998 or 1999 I was in a javascript chatroom on some random fansite and one of the guys in the room started talking about the series to Dragon Ball Z called...no, not GT, but Dragon Ball XY. He in the series, Goku and Vegeta died of old age and Gohan led the remaining memb...

Re: Unreleased "Vendar" English dub of Dead Zone (Funimation/Ocean, 1996)

Vendar sounds like the name of a shadowy evil overlord villain from an 80s cartoon.

Re: Do you think the Boo saga was the most brutal in the series ?

The scene of the slaughtered family by Babidi's spaceship , complete with the dead toddler and the woman cut in half with her guts hanging out always struck me as a bit much.

Re: Movie Tournament: The Champion

Dead Zone is my number one. Cool "grounded" fight choreography, awesome music and visual design. The 23rd Budokai/Saiyan arc is probably my favorite versions of all these characters as well. Something else I like is that the movie is straight to the point. There's zero "fat" in this movie. I like ho...

Re: How did you come to know about dragonball?

An old issue of EGM from 1993 where they covered Super Butoden. I was immediately drawn to the wild character designs and the huge energy blasts. DBZ games got a decent amount of coverage from video game magazines in their import sections. I pieced together that the games were based on a TV show but...

Re: What fans want VS real-life released products.

Back in 1999 when I heard that Funi was going to release more DBZ episodes I FOOLISHLY assumed that on top of being uncut visually, they would address the other fan grievances. They'd use the original music! The voices I liked would remain while the ones I didn't would be recast! The dialogue would ...

Re: So, did DBZ Movie 14, and everything after scratched your DB itch?

BoG was fine. In all honesty, aside from the novelty of it being a new Dragon Ball movie it left very little impression on me. I'm still not sure what I think about Beerus. I don't hate RoF as much as some people but I'll admit the whole movie feels kinda pointless and the resolution is really unsat...

Re: The UUE TV Broadcast

I can't help you, but I remember catching these episodes channel surfing (remember doing that?) back when they were airing on CN. I was completely unaware that they even existed and was shocked when the first thing I saw was Kuririn looking at Yamcha's dead body which hadn't made TV at that point. I...

Re: Watched Dragon Ball Z as a kid - interested in rewatching the series. What series/versions/releases should I pick/sk

Hulu has both original Dragon Ball and GT subbed if you don't mind a few commercials. Unfortunately Dragon Ball at least (and I assume GT) are set expire in a couple of weeks. Thanks for the heads up. I have 11 episodes left of Dragon Ball (first time watching the show start to finish - I've really...
