Re: Was GT a failure ?

I'd say GT wasn't the success it could have been, but hey, it's definitely found new life thanks to Super Dragon Ball Heroes and the various other promotional material and games out there. So it's definitely endured, in its own way.

Re: R.I.P Manos Venieris

So sorry to hear. My heart goes out to his family, friends and of course, all the people who listened to his voice work over the years. That's fantastic how both he and his wife Maria voiced characters for Dragon Ball

Re: So is this whole Moro arc basically the, "Garlic Jr. saga" of Super?

I'm pretty sure Toyotaro already said he purposefully wrote Moro as a pure evil character who cant be reasoned with. It's hard to get invested in a villain when you know they are nothing more than pure evil and have no particular motivation driving them. I'm actually surprised Dragon Ball went back...

Re: If Goku joined the Justice League...

Some of the comments I'm responding to are a few years old, so apologies in advance... They're far from helpless, they've got plenty of tech and abilities around to send Goku back to his home universe. If that's out of the question, Superman himself will kill Goku when he does something so idiotical...

Demon King Piccolo and the Black Star Dragon Balls question

Hi, gang: I was trying to fill the remaining gaps in my Dragon Ball viewing, namely the King Piccolo arc (Ma Junior is next), when I came upon something I found quite surprising. As we all know, the first arc of Dragon Ball GT focused on the Black Star Dragon Balls, which were stated to be a Dragon ...

Haha, I greatly appreciate the attempt regardless, Mike! :lol: At least now I know that the quote actually says "not Goku" instead of "neither Goku," which was definitely something I didn't know before. My apologies about Meri's tape! But yes, if anybody else has that fansub or a great memory, I'd l...

Question about Movie 12 for all you fansub experts out there

As detailed on the site's Rumor Guide, one of the most famous fansubbed lines of Movie 12 is Gogeta's "I am neither Goku nor Vegeta… I am the instrument of your defeat!” So my question is: who made the particular fansub where that line appeared? I know Kanzenshuu says Anime Labs worked on the more f...

I got to know so many people because of our mutual love for the show, and it might not have ever happened if it weren't for DBZA and its 10+years of comedy brillianc...

I'm just waiting for the audio-improved remasters of season 1 so I can introduce new fans to DBZA without the empty periods of dead silence that came up a lot back then. Actually, that was one of the things I admired about the first season. When TFS started inserting music into the episodes, there ...

Re: General Fan Fiction Thread

Here's a fan fiction that I enjoyed a lot when I read it a few years back: Our Great Conscience, by KaviNasiga. It's set 25 years after Goku vanished in Dragon Ball GT, in a time where the people of a now-unified Earth worship Goku and Vegeta's descendants (Trunks, Pan, etc.) as gods, while their hu...

Re: The Anime's ToP or the Manga's ToP? Which one did you prefer?

Toyo's ToP taken alone without the anime as support is incredibly bland an boring and unnaturally fast. Introduces tons of characters and then proceeds to do nothing whatsoever with them Definitely agree. One of the great things about the anime version was that we got to learn quite a bit about the...

Re: The Anime's ToP or the Manga's ToP? Which one did you prefer?

Because it's quite likely that Toyotaro eliminated many characters so fast it's because they were already given focus in the anime, so he felt he could mostly skip them It's possible, but honestly, I suspect the real reason is that either Toyotaro or his editors didn't want to fall too behind the a...

Re: What do you think of the tone difference between Z and Super?

Well, the thing is that Super started out really as an action/comedy, which was likely due to the Battle of Gods film (and the Buu Saga before it) bringing back some of that early Dragon Ball humor. As the show progressed, however, it slowly slid back into the dramatic tone of the Z era, starting wi...

Re: The Anime's ToP or the Manga's ToP? Which one did you prefer?

I'd have to say the anime, honestly. It just had way more room to breathe, and we got to learn a lot about the fighters from the other universes. The manga ToP, on the other hand, felt like Toyotaro was in a hurry to get everybody knocked off, so he picked a small handful of the more powerful or sne...
