Dialects in Dragon Ball?

If all goes well, I'll be studying in Nagoya for a semester in September, and I've been using a lot of resources to practice my Japanese with. I know that understanding different dialects will be important to my functioning in daily life in Japan as I'll hopefully be going all around the country whi...

Re: How did you come to know about dragonball?

I kind of knew of Dragon Ball for a few years before I really discovered it, though I never actually watched the show when it was airing on North American TV. I once tried to read the manga from my local library when I was 13 but I couldn't get into it, but the next year I decided to get into anime ...

Re: Does Dragon Ball as a Franchise goes in your right Direction ?

It's progressing as I expected, but as I've been a fan for longer, I've wanted less material, unless it's games. Sometimes things just have a natural place to end, and Dragon Ball is one of them. It honestly could've ended before Boo or even Cell, but I would have ended it after EoZ myself. When I w...

Re: Do you enjoy Complaining about/Discussing/Watching edited versions of DB?

If I'm watching an edited version, it's just to rip on it and cringe usually. There are definitely parts to complain about, especially in translation, but I never watched the show with severely edited footage.

Re: Did the franchise ever POSITIVELY affect you?

Even though I've lost most of the interest I used to have in Dragon Ball, it's still important for me. Just today I powered through an hour of work with Dragon Ball insert songs playing in the background, and they really energized me and helped me feel better after having a morning with lots of anxi...

Re: Some rankings and statistics on the use of Kikuchi's BGM in the series

Much appreciated - this is the kind of project I'd embark on if I had any time. Much thanks to Rafa Zenkai too - I can finally listen to DB BGMs while I'm working on my papers again!

Re: Does anyone ever actually watch the Z dub with the Kikuchi score?

I did when I was watching DBZ, due to despising Faulconer's music. Kikuchi's compositions get somewhat weaker into the Boo saga but DBZ had some amazing BGMs, such as the one theme in the Freeza saga with its variations. Possibly the best BGM in the whole franchise.

Re: Who are the most underrated DB Characters?

Yajirobe before DBZ. I've been rereading that portion of the manga and from what I gather he could have been on par with Tenshinhan. After all, he was able to climb the Karin tower (with Goku on his back) when Goku barely did so 3 years before.

Re: Why don't we get any Halloween episodes in Dragon Ball?

With all due respect, I think the concept of having holiday themed episodes in a fighting anime like Dragon Ball is pretty stupid. Any sort of Halloween or Christmas episode would most likely detract from a plot and just seem silly. If they were really desperate and the timing was right, Toei could ...

Re: Can Roshi read minds?

Roshi is a highly underrated character. Especially among fans who saw his return to the battlefield in the Resurrection of Freeza arc, and his selection for the Tournament of power leaving them confused. The confusion stems mostly from fans who only ever watched DBZ before DBS. In DBZ, he was releg...

Re: Does King Kai hate Goku?

I think their relationship is too close for them to hate each other. They've spent years together training and King Kai has been crucial to Goku's success, willingly helping even after Goku blew up his planet and killed him.

Re: What do you think of movie 13?

I liked Tapion. I'd like to see him be made canon, possibly appearing in the next anime or playing a significant role in another movie. He's always been a popular character, despite his few appearances.

Can Roshi read minds?

I'm rewatching the original Dragon Ball on my DVDs and I just watched the episode where Roshi/Jackie Chun figures out why Nam is so stoic. He somehow figures out Nam's background and appears to read his thoughts. If Roshi is, in fact, able to read people's minds, then why is this never mentioned aga...

Re: Who are your least favorite characters of the entire franchise?

Chi-Chi, Mr Satan (pre-friendship with Boo, but still pretty annoying), Master Roshi when he's perving out (otherwise he's one of my favourite characters), and Goten. Why does everyone hate Pilaf? He's one of my favourite characters.

Re: Would you like to see Goku age and become old eventually?

Yes. I'd be ok with Goku physically aging more though Saiyajins age much slower than humans so he'd have to be 70 or 80 before he started looking older.

Re: does Dragon Ball feature Shit Tier Villains compared to other villains in Anime?

The movie villains are nothing to be proud of, for the most part. However, I think Dragon Ball's main antagonists are effective, particularly Freeza, the Demon King, and to a lesser degree Boo. The first two strike fear into your heart and make a reader/viewer genuinely lose hope, even when they kno...
