Re: How DBZ on Cartoon Network worked? Please help explain

As someone from outside the US who was introduced to the franchise in the early 10s, seeing the regular CN branding over something that violent does not compute. Oh, yeah. If you think Cartoon Network is liberal now, you have no idea how awesome they were back in the day! I'm surprised they even ne...

Re: Non-thread-worthy discussions

Ha-chan was still hanging out in Jingle Village. Could've been interesting if Gohan met #8 and they bonded over pacifism or something. That could then have naturally progressed into Gohan's power-up against Cell. Or put the lore about #16 being based on Dr. Gero's son to use by having Gohan confron...

Re: Will Toonami survive without new Dragon Ball Content?

Didn’t Toonami’s revival start pre-obtaining the syndication rights to Dragon Ball Kai? Did it ever NEED Dragon Ball to begin with? While DBZ was certainly the main event, there were plenty of other anime like Yu-Gi-Oh, Beyblade, Zoids, Full Metal Alchemist and more on the block, and the same is tru...

Re: Vic Mignogna

Dunno about that, that was 20 years ago. More recent recasts ala Kai have done no such thing. Ayres, Rial and Clinkenbeard sound nothing like their predecessors and are all the better for it. Except when Clinkenbeard is doing Kid Goku, of course. Jokes aside, Rial did intentionally lean towards her...

Re: How DBZ on Cartoon Network worked? Please help explain

Then, I assume there was some break before the dubbed season 4 began to air. They went back to episode 1, right? When they finished airing a season, did they always go back to episode 1? Or did they try to give other arcs more rerun exposure, since it was one episode a day, and they didn’t need to ...

Re: "Happy" 20th Anniversary of FUNimation's DBZ Season 3 Dub!

You know, I get most of the sentiments expressed in this thread. I only have one question... What's everyone's deal with the music? I thought that, aside from the instruments themselves, it was an improvement in virtually every way! It's my favorite anime soundtrack to date; It's even inspired me t...

Re: You watched DBZ before DB and certain characters didn't make sense

I think there was a general sense of “why should I care about these guys?” Yamcha, Oolong, Puar, Tien, and Chaotzu always just feel like they were just there

I guess Yamcha has the context of being Bulma’s boyfriend at least.

Re: Petition to use SS, not SSJ, as an abbreviation for Super Saiyan

i know this is the logic for a lot of people who prefer funimation's name's, but SSJ really does look better. maybe it's just because i'm so used too it but i think it's partially because SS gets used in different contexts, where SSJ doesn't, at least as far as i know. Ironically, I swear I see the...

Re: Funimation Leaked Outtakes

Most people don't really give a crap about the voice actors of a show I think this entire ordeal has proven the exact opposite of this. The whole Vic ordeal hasn’t really garnered much attention outside of niche anime sites and con going circles and people who already follow this sort of thing. You...

Mignogna seriously picked one of the most incompetent lawyers ever to represent him. I kinda feel bad for the guy even though I really shouldn't.
Why should anyone feel bad for a shitstain getting a shit stain lawyer.

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

Besides, what we’re talking about is things like Blue being a pedo, and I’m guessing Kamesennin being a predator. The way I see it, neither of these things are glorified or condoned. Blue is an evil Nazi You’re missing the point. Nobody is saying Toei is condoning Blue being a pedo. The issue at ha...

Re: Editing of painfully-outdated LGBT+ content in future DB(Z) releases?

I can’t believe it’s almost 2020 and we’re still going to have people pretend Mr.Popo isn’t blatantly a minstrel show. Like...you have heard Mr.Popo talk in Japanese right?

And no he’s not based on any yokai. He’s vaguely suppose to be a genie between the Arabic wear and the magic carpet.

Re: Dub Changes That Don't Bother You...that much

In the latest Super episode, they changed the dialogue that sort of implied Roshi was going to rape Caway (or at least that she was afraid that he would). That was probably a good idea. Yeah, that's not a change I mind either. Falls in the same bucket of changing Oolong's dialogue to imply that he'...

Re: So how does one *correctly* hug their fans?

I think it would be much easier if celebrities didn’t interact with fans at all. They don’t know these people. For all they know, they could be a bunch of weirdos, or vice versa. I feel like that's very much not the answer either. For all of the bad that comes out of celebrities and fans meetings, ...
