Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Interesting. Not just the alternate line. In the original dub when Krillin says r-right in response to Dende there’s some audience insulting “We just made a funny kids laugh!” music beat that plays. In the YTV its just normal music (which I think also happens in the remastered dub) Yeah. The YTV ed...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

In the old Z dub lines like Vegeta's "I am a friggin' genius" was as far as they were willing to go language wise, which is quite a huge difference when compared to just about a decade later in the Ultimate Uncut dub and especially Kai where there's multiple uses of damn, bastard, and i believe the...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Oh I’m not surprised a line intended for the uncut dub got mixed into the edited dub by mistake. I’m surprised the line existed at all considering Funimation otherwise never had any swearing in Uncut DBZ until around the Namek saga of the redub lol. Yeah, that's fair. IIRC, Jheese says "Bugger" a f...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Has anyone ever asked Chris Sabat or Sonny Strait about that line? I’d say Ceyli Delgadillo but she seemed to have fallen off the face of earth. I'm fairly sure a different line was used for the Ocean edit of the episode that aired on YTV after the Garlic Jr. saga premiered, so I think it's just a ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

I never understood the big deal with the "piss off" scene back in the day. I guess maybe because I didn't think of "piss" as a swear word. It may have been too much for children's television I suppose. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqhO-ciBO0Y Every time someone links a clip from season 3 (or, re...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Switching back and forth from Kai to Z for reference is kind of like an eye opener. Especially once you learn about some of the behinds the scenes troubles going on with the anime at the time. I feel like this is about the point where the pacing of things starts to take a turn for the worse, since ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 54 - DBZ 75-79 (CURRENT WEEK)

Impressive that Z got some mileage out of Chorus of Doom from Sleeping Princess. Piccolo’s death, Kuririn getting skewered and Vegeta’s death. I can’t remember if it was ever actually used in OG Dragon Ball. (When Goku went to the demon’s realm maybe?) It was used when he was in the demon realm, as...

Re: Dragon Ball Episode of Bardock - Ten Years.

Until Super came along, this was the single worst, stupidest, most unnecessary piece of Dragon Ball media to exist. Nothing about it is worthwhile, carries any meaning, or does anything interesting, and along the way it also portrayed Bardock in the least-interesting light possible, leaning more to ...

Re: The new Dragon Ball room for 2021

Robo your alternate take has some flaws - It still has Freeza as a recurring villain which doesn't help matters. As for your ideas, I like some of them, others I disagree with. For instance, they should have instead kept Freeza dead after Resurrection F and not brought him back again for the Univer...

There's nothing to apologize for. It's not our fault Dragon Ball Super ended up being such a terrible series. We have every right to be frustrated that our beloved series didn't live up to the standards and expectations of a modern time. It has a lot to learn from the likes of Attack on Titan, Avat...

Re: The new Dragon Ball room for 2021

The core sentiment I sense from those that want the story to go in new directions like this that Dragon Ball needs to change into something it's fundamentally not. That's what I'm criticizing. The thing is, Dragon Ball, until Super, was fundamentally a show that went new directions every arc or so....

I watched it a couple of years ago, I think, and I found it insultingly bad at the time, and almost immediately forgot everything that happened in both it and Coola 1. The two biggest clunkers in the Dragon Ball movie canon, one after the other. Coola 1 comes at the end of February, for those curiou...

Re: Harmony Gold Dub Q&A Thread

3) Was there any talks of skipping Dragon Ball and going to Z or just doing the films? This would be very foolish given this stuff aired in December 1989/January 1990. If they jumped straight to Z, they would be in great danger of running out of material. Plus, the "Skip to Z!" mentality the west i...

Re: The new Dragon Ball room for 2021

And that's fine. I don't watch Dragon Ball for complex storytelling. I watch it because the fights are fun, the characters are cool, and the antagonists are unique and interesting, with the exception of a few. I watch it because it's plain, simple fun. Exactly. Dragon Ball is just a fun martial art...

Re: 2021 Dragon Ball Wishlist/Predictions

Let's first see how well I did with 2020... DBZ Kakarot gets DLC based on Super, and possibly some of the Z movies, but no DB, GT, or EoZ material. To the shock and surprise of precisely no one at all, no one cares about this, and the perception that OG DB is inherently just the disposable comedic p...
