Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Kai Recut [WORK IN PROGRESS], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WORK IN PROGRESS]

I'd like to report an error in the subtitles for episode 53. At 17:23, Tien's line isn't translated. The subtitle is missing.

Are you going to put the insert songs back into the dubbed audio? IIRC they didn't replace the music with anything else in the dub, they just left it silent, so it should be easy.

You did say you were going to insert Kai's dub into the Z recut right? That's what I'm looking forward to more than anything.

Re: Does DBZ's OST Feel Lackluster at Times?

The biggest problem that Yamamoto and Sumitomo have is that they want to score Z like it's Power Rangers. They see Z as a juvenile show for children with bright colors, energy beams and silly puns. And while that's sort of true, they forget that Z also has a story with character development, and mo...

Re: Pun? or translation error?

A juku school is a Japanese weekend cram school. Since it's a uniquely Japanese concept, Simmons left the term untranslated. That would be one his earlier translations though, too, so who knows if he'd stand by that choice now. I've defended Simmons in the past but this is ridiculous. NO ONE is goi...

Re: Dragon Ball Recut [COMPLETE], Dragon Ball Z Kai Recut [WORK IN PROGRESS], Dragon Ball Z Recut [WORK IN PROGRESS]

Could you consider adding this awesome English version of OP 1 to the dubbed version of Z Recut? No, I'm sticking with the Japanese version. I considered using an English version, but I've never heard one that I was happy with. This one is pretty decent, but I wish it were just a little more profes...

That's a level of sad that ...

Elitist? Not in the least. Uh, let me point to his post again. There's a metric FUCKTON of blatant misconceptions and incorrect assertions, such as the main topic of this thread, that all stem primarily from not only general ignorance/inexperience with Wuxia, but also from the perspective that almo...

Re: Does DBZ's OST Feel Lackluster at Times?

Most of these misconceptions could easily be corrected if more people just hunkered down and actually WATCHED some more of the actual genre material that all of these seemingly disparate components of Dragon Ball actually stem from and fit into. Part of the reason I love Dragon Ball is because I do...

For more or less, that is the punchline.
He's replying to a tweet that doesn't exist anymore, so I gather Gohan isn't just doing this randomly.

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

Not exactly a translation request, but to anyone who's fluent in Japanese culture, what is the context behind what Gohan says here? Is he just trying to annoy Piccolo, or what? Even Kai's dub didn't know what to do with this.
