is there any reason to buy them anymore? i know they're bad but i guess if its for only collectors
The Dragon Boxesand Rock the Dragon are the only “collectors items” Orange Bricks are still cheap and accessible and the go to for fans who haven’t upgraded to Blue Ray.

Re: Dubs shouldnt bend over backwards to please purists. Subs shouldnt plase Casuals

There's a difference between acknowledging differences between various forms of mediums and preferring a version of it, and claiming that japanese dubs represent the "real" version of DBZ, that anyone who accepts Funimation's remastering is being duped or somehow not wanting the best for the fandom...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 48 - DBZ movie 3 (CURRENT WEEK)

FUNimation’s in-house dub of this movie is pretty wonky. The best explanation I can come up with for why they used the TV dub’s script as the basis is that they wanted to try and set it apart from the Pioneer version They already used the Pioneer scripts for movie 1 and 2 so that ship had sailed if...

The guy said Z and GT were darker compared to DB, not simply dark.

Sure, but the argument being made is that the NEP music for Z and GT didn’t fit the tone of those shows, which isn’t true.

I've never cared for next episode previews. Even in Japanese they always felt silly and out of place, especially with the darker tone of Z and GT (OG DB is alright I guess), plus they usually spoil the best parts of the upcoming episode.
Z and GT aren’t dark and its a kids show

Re: Ocean Studios' "Dragon Ball Kai" Dub Turns 10; Still Unreleased

I wish this thing would come out already. The safest bet, for the past couple years, has been that it won't. Kai is just old news at this point, and it'll be an uphill battle to talk any Canadian TV network into airing a show that's old news, even if it is with a dub that we haven't heard yet. Ther...

Re: Dubs shouldnt bend over backwards to please purists. Subs shouldnt plase Casuals

Iirc the logic behind Super’s dub being less faithful than Kai was “everyone had already seen Super subbed” at least I seem to recall Sabat saying something to that effect and that’s not untrue. Due to how long it took to get Super dubbed (about a 2 year gap) and the easy accessibility to Super subs...

Far as I know Tullece was always correct and Turles was a transliteration thing with l and r being interchangeable in Japanese.

Re: Dragon Ball on MeTV's Kids Block? Yay or Nay?

......the shows they’re using were popular Saturday Morning cartoons from the 60s in the US. It’s meant to appeal to boomer nostalgia. Dragon Ball wouldn’t fit with that channel in any way.

Icarus (which I honestly think is a better name, Higher Dragon just sounds plain weird and nonsensical) MyVisionity explained the joke/pun with Hire Dragon and it’s just one of those things that doesn’t carry over into western culture. Icarus isn’t really the best name, considering what happened to...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 48 - DBZ movie 3 (CURRENT WEEK)

The very first "evil Goku". This movie was released exactly one month before Ginyu took over Goku's body, so I wonder if the writers at Toei knew about this ahead of time and got the idea of an "evil Goku" from it. I might be looking too much into it and it could just be pure coincidence. The “bad ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 48 - DBZ movie 3 (CURRENT WEEK)

Hire Dragon was named Icarus in the Funi/Saban/Ocean tv dub Chris Psaros even noted his displeasure with that name in his comparison. It’s actually kind of weird he got to keep his Japanese name in the Pioneer version, despite those dubs being significantly more faithful than what Funimation was pro...

Re: If Goku didn't marry ChiChi, which woman would you pair him with?

Suno was boring. Say one interesting thing about her other than “nice” and “had a crush on Goku” had she and Goku gotten hitched she would have been window dressing. Bulma as Goku’s wife could have been interesting I guess. Gohan’s character likely would have been more like young Trunks but less arr...

Dragon Ball GT was originally intended to be set before EOZ. After meeting with Toriyama, it was decided that it should be its own thing instead set after EOZ.

For some reason Bulma gives me the impression that this is what Toriyama thought a western American woman looked and acted like. She was obsessed with guns and even had a rifle hanging in her bedroom so I think Toriyama was pretty spot on. Even when Bulma was 16 at the time, Toriyama didn’t mind gi...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 47 - DBZ episode 53-57 (CURRENT WEEK)

Vegeta being taken down by Zarbon and then his subsequent revenge is probably the first best showcase of “Saiyans getting stronger after near fatal injuries”. Retroactively, we can assume Goku got a boost from nearly being killed by Tao Pai Pai and the Super God Water but those were before Toriyama ...
