Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

A solid performance from all parties here, but the frame-rate drops are astoundingly intrusive and completely hurt these premieres, especially with the frantic repeat frames of this battle. If this is the standard we're getting all the way up to Goku vs. Jiren.... yeesh. Might just wait until the pr...

Re: DBS Goku: Dumber, Smarter Or The Same Compared To DBZ?

I think it's less that perhaps he's regressed (barring certain episodes penned by certain members of Super's writing staff), and more that he's been naturally enabled throughout most of the course of Super. Super's primarily composed of low tension situations where Beerus is literally spectating for...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

Tonight's episode was rather serviceable, I had fretted over Mike Mcfarland's potential performance over the Tournament of Power's more serious Roshi, but he pulled it off rather well! Notable script changes I had noted came from Caway's line of Roshi "making her undesirable as a wife" into being fe...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

So Funimation released their home video trailer for Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which is largely the same as the third trailer, but with the tidbit of 45 minutes of bonus footage. I doubt it's an actual extended cut of the film since we likely would have seen something related be mentioned on the Jap...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

It seems they took out 17's dad joke ("How old are you?" "I'm 17") in favor of some really uncomfortable dark humor ("I like all the animals. Except humans.") Admittedly Krillin's uncomfortability plays off a bit better from the dark joke, but it was an unwarranted change that wasn't particularly an...

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

Though options becomes limitless when considering the magician archetype, I'm fully expecting --as Toriyama has had a knack for tying loose series ends now-- for this technique of the goat fella to be tied in with the origin and applications of the Spirit Bomb somehow. For such a trump-card techniqu...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

So tonight's episode seems to have slyly referenced the infamous Piccolo motivation scene with Piccolo saying to Gohan, "You can do this! You can win!" It's not ver batim the exact same speech he gives in the Namek arc, but it was paced and delivered very much the same and I imagine it was an inten...

Being a spoiler based on simply one source aside, Freeza wishing to be taller would've been entirely fine and humorous enough for me --but Toriyama's already made this joke with Commander Red. Freeza being nubbed a bit for a joke is fine, but if there's to be a gag at play, I'd prefer it be a punchl...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Reminder overall that plots always tend to be horribly lacking when essentially conveyed through essay format. I'm already expecting discussion to be heavily filled with its qualms and critiques, but execution has always been Dragon Ball's key to plot, not its semantic outline. If things are anythin...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Why is modern dragonball so kid friendly, the story has become more basic, and it looks like the movie is going to be very PG in terms of the violence shown. I need blood, and this movie looks like there is no blood. Why is modern dragon ball getting so soft? UGH. Now, I have to ask, and this isn't...

Re: So; has anyone else thought about how ridiculously lucky the Z fighters have been overall?

It seems like ever since day one. Whenever Goku fights someone hugely powerful and wins, someone else comes along who dwarfs the other guy. Then he beats him and a new person comes along who dwarfs him. Rinse, lather, repeat. But what if someone arrived early? Like for example what if when Raditz d...

Lmao I got good laughs out of the Clown God's voice. Funimation probably decided to do this because in the Toei version he was nothing more than an inconsistent, repetitive, annoying character with no personality. ...... He was pretty clearly depicted as a passive God of Destruction confident in th...

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

You know, the fun of the tournament arcs in Dragon Ball isn't just the spectacle of the fight covering for lack of genuine substance, but it's the constant bombardment of new and interesting, even if flat, characters that come along as a result. Maybe they don't even have that much to add personalit...

Re: DragonBall Z Abridged

A superb encapsulation of everything that made the original SSJ2 transformation work; the staggering build-up, the climactic crunch, the somber silence all building into a symphonic torrent of unbridled emotion and apprehension and... really, a death of innocence. The insert song then fills in (it c...

Re: Dragon Ball Super USA Adult Swim and Toonami Ratings

Do we have any word on how Super's been performing on its weekday showings? The slot's somewhat prestigious what with it usually airing the leftovers of the top hierarchy of Fox's Animation Domination, so I'm rather interested to see if Super's performance justifies the slot well enough to see the p...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" FUNimation Dub Official Discussion Thread

It's an awful adaptation of a line, no doubt, and while it does technically mean the same thing in essence, the connotation that comes with the line completely devoids the scene with any of its proper gravitas; I immediately lost the tone of the scene with the reference, and while Funimation has tak...

Please no. I think what most people want is a 2 hour long Plot heavy story with beautiful action. Poop jokes aren’t really that funny if you ask me personally.
