Re: How many series exist for you?

saiyans, king cold and babidi etc King Cold was barely a footnote. Babidi is an alien but wasn’t treated as an alien invading earth like the Saiyajin were Hatchan is a parody of Frankenstein ... A parody of Frankenstein and a cyborg those are not mutually exclusive. Ginyu force is moderate Right.

Re: How many series exist for you?

The difference is with everything that came prior. Again, this implied the shift in tone didn’t happen well before Raditz arrived. I don't think anyone thinks the differences are that extreme. However I do think that overall DB is sillier and lighter when compared to DBZ, which is comparatively dar...

Re: How many series exist for you?

And why do people who downplay DBZ's humor keep forgetting Kaio? He's a recurring character whose constantly making jokes and thinks puns are the heighth of comedy. Same reason people ignore Bora getting murdered by Tao Pei Pei, the Red Ribbon’s take over of Jingle Village and General White’s plan ...

Re: How many series exist for you?

The issue is when people take it to mean anything more than that. They aren't two different stories. I see it more as a divided story. I don't think the Saiyajin arc was "just another story arc", but instead a new beginning for DB. Goku was an adult with a wife and kid, a kid who began to take cent...

Re: How many series exist for you?

We can because that is objectively the correct answer. The manga is all just Dragon Ball. It takes some hubris to claim one's opinion as being "objective," It’s not an opinion. It’s factually true that everything from the beginning where Bulma to met Goku to Goku leaving with Oob is all Dragon Ball...

wanted to teach Goten and Trunks fusion instead of destroying Buu himself, doesn't that show that he's changed because of the Cell arc?
Could have stopped Fat Boo as a Super Saiyajin 3.

Decided to leave it to two brats barely out of pull ups.

What shows he changed?

Re: How many series exist for you?

And the original Dragon Ball WASN'T sci-fi? Perhaps I’m being pedantic, but no , Dragon Ball was not sci fi. Neither is Z. They’re all rooted in fantasy with some sci fi elements. The Saiyajin-Artifical Human/Cell saga just feature a lot more of it. There’s “horror” elements in Dragon Ball and Z to...

Re: How many series exist for you?

I don't remember any crossover or parody maybe enma but little The Ginyu Force was a parody of Super Sentai they’re even named TokuSentai Ginyu Force. Saiyaman is a parody of Superman (nerd is secretly a super hero) and Kamen Rider (posing) Dragon Ball pre-Z only had one crossover with Dr.Slump it’...

Re: How many series exist for you?

I can’t find it but there was an interview somewhere where Fukunaga said they replaced the music for royalty reasons. “we can make money with our music” Saban was the one that contacted Wasserman to do the score but it was Funi who made the call to do so. Funimation owned the rights to the score, wh...

Re: How many series exist for you?

dbz is more sci-fi The Saiyajin arc brought in more sci fi elements than what had been seen previously, for sure. However, the series never stopped primarily being a fantasy. Where these martial artist use chi based power to fight. is actually different things like magic weapons, demons(not aliens)...

Re: How many series exist for you?

Hm, okay. My theory was that Funi saw DBZ as such a big money-maker, they were willing to spend more money to help it make more money. Inversely, they didn't see Dragon Ball as making a lot of money, so why waste money on it? They initially did replace the score for Dragon Ball. When they dubbed th...

Re: How many series exist for you?

, and I was genuinely shocked at how very Z-like the fights between both characters really was, and how dark and serious the story became. When Piccolo blew up Central City, I legitimately said "Holy SHIT this is basically a DBZ fight and I have NO IDEA!!". Yep. I think way too many fans associate ...

Re: How many series exist for you?

And to be frank, to say that is to focus FAR too much on the "Oh I was exposed to Z first with the Falcouner score and edgy intro" and not on the original Japanese production of the anime and manga. This. Just because people started with Funimation’s reversioning of DBZ with Faulconer’s robotic sod...

Re: How many series exist for you?

Other than the Smallville example, I agree with MasenkoHA's points. Veering off topic here (oh well) but did you not think Smallville felt different in the later seasons? Things like Booster Gold, The Wonder Twins, The Legion of Super Heroes, Darkseid etc is something the early seasons would have n...

Re: Serious Dragon Ball Questions For Fans About The Voice of Goku

I would probably have a boner if Schemmel got replaced. Not because I dislike him as Goku. I haven’t had a problem with his performance since around OG Dragon Ball (2003?) but he’s overrated as fuck by the American fandom and I’d probably jizz my pants over the uproar especially if we got a better G...

Re: How many series exist for you?

Let me put it this way. If you started with Dragon Ball Z, as many fans did, and you went back and started watching the original Dragon Ball, would it seem like the same show to you? Not the point. You’re not suppose to watch DBZ first and then go back and watch Dragon Ball. The shift was gradual a...

Re: Can we consider Piccolo Daimao and Piccolo Jr the same person?

Nothing was changed. Toriyama clearly conceived Piccolo Jr as the reincarnation of Daimao yes, it started like that. And continued to be so. Piccolo Jr never stopped being the reincarnation. Toriyama nor Toei went back on the concept. They continued to remind you that Piccolo Jr and Kami were once ...
