[Suggestion] Kenji Yamamoto Feature - Kanji for Track Samples

I was in a discussion with a friend recently about the whole Kenji Yamamoto debacle and wanted to point her toward a good breakdown for further reading and samples and I thought, "Hey, why not direct her to Kanzenshuu's feature about the whole thing?" She enjoyed it a lot, but when she was checking ...

Sorry for the blurry image but I picked up this cool-looking No. 18 recently.

Re: Try to razionalize "stupid" desicions made by characters throughout the franchise

Why didn't Piccolo fuse with Kami when the Saiyans were coming to Earth if he knew that would increase his power? In the Cell arc it seems he always knew that, so why not do it before the Saiyans showed up? Sorry to break the chain on the game. The first Piccolo hears about the potential of this is...

Re: Any examples of bad voice acting in the original?

Yeah, I agree with Ajay that Vegeta's "rage" moment in Super was laughably bad. There are also times where Nozawa's voice as Goku in Super annoys me, especially this scene at 1:52 But I don't remember or notice any terrible voice acting in the original DBZ, at least the Japanese version. The Englis...

Re: Herms' use of "several" in the Strength Checker

Re: How Many Fights Has Goku Won and Lost?

Goku and Piccolo Jr. vs. Raditz: LOSS, needed Piccolo. Goku vs. Kid Buu: LOSS. Yes, he would have lost without the Genki Dama. I agree that the first one is a loss, but I find fault with the reasoning. Along this train of thought, Goku "lost" as soon as the fight started since he and Piccolo agreed...

Re: "Saiya People" is actually more accurate than Saiyans.

I don't see how "Saiya People" is any more accurate than "Saiyans", as the two convey the exact same idea: the people of Saiya. But there is nothing called "Saiya" in the series. We're humans, not the people from Huma. But we're also often referred to in the series as 地球人, or chikyuujin, meaning "E...

So unless they would provide us with a tidbit of information, like "If too many parallel universes exist, everything will blow up.", I fail to see the significance of any statement regarding meddling with time.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

The anime's explanation isn't wrong or anything, as there is a butterfly effect with the process. They just didn't paint the whole picture. Toyotaro and the anime often have little tidbits in different orders, so hopefully there's some point later on in the anime that gives us reason to delve back ...

Re: Do colors matter?

To an extent, sure. Abilities should keep the same color for the most part unless there's some different attribute about them that changes their nature in some way. In terms of recognition, hand positions are the wind up and colors are the follow-through. If it were to suddenly be different, I'd pro...

Re: Deus Ex Machina

Luck is a real thing, but that's not how you tell a story, that's haphazard and disintegrated. In the first fight against Muten Roshi, Goku loses by a small margin, not because Roshi was stronger, but because Roshi was wiser and had a better strategy. I think it's less important whether or not Goku...

Why does it need to be explained? Just say Krillin likes tacos and call it a day.

Re: Things the Dubs did better.

In Funi's version, they open up Piccolo a bit more where he parallels Vegeta's growth with his own. He recalls his feelings when he gave up his life fighting Nappa, acknowledging that he used to be selfish like Vegeta until he bonded with Gohan and began to change. He then says his goodbyes to his ...

Re: Things the Dubs did better.

I won't say these scenes are "better" per say, but I like them nonetheless. First one here is Trunks's appearance. I like how the music goes low as we anticipate Trunks's first words and then comes back in full force to continue the "Who in the world is this guy!?" feeling. https://youtu.be/OQjUG6hF...
