Re: Dragon Ball Movies HD Remaster - Amazon Video/Netflix Japan - Discussion Thread

The Amazon/Netflix ones were put out several months ahead of the Blu-Rays...so who know why the fuck they decided to further tinker with something that had an overwhelmingly great reception, but well...Toei! They were great but its a pity about the green tint. Is there someone with a poorly calibra...

Re: What would have happened if the Harmony Gold run was actually successful?

Back then, HG only had two options, cut, or merge episodes, the tech for digital painting existed at the time they recorded the dub, but it wasn't as advanced, and i'm sure it was expensive When Funimation produced the BLT dub in 94, i'm sure they already had the tech a bit more advanced (Overlayin...

Re: What would have happened if the Harmony Gold run was actually successful?

She’s in that bunny outfit for the following 2 episodes and the beginning of the episode after that as well. And skipping those episodes means skipping over the Dragon Ball gang getting the 7 star ball and “Zero” learning Kamehamehameha They also likely would have had a problem with Oolong wishing ...

Re: What would have happened if the Harmony Gold run was actually successful?

We’re assuming the reason Harmony Gold dub didn’t go through because of underperforming test runs but watching the dub it seems more likely HG realized the show had too much objectionable content for them so they dropped it. Playboy Bunny Bulma and Armor Bikini Chi Chi was probably too much for the...

Re: Manga UK Releasing DBZ Blu-Rays and Steelbooks

Yeah, this packaging is more basic, but it's less likely to age poorly and actually fits in really well with the styling used for Kai and Super.

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

funimation is always gonna market DBZ to the Toonami crowd, so you just gotta hope it isn't COMPLETELY ugly. The Kanzenshuu motto! I still prefer it to the cluttered off-model diaramas from the 2014 blus. Tho it looks like they are reusing some of the 2014 art for the backs of these, which I'm not ...

Also, forgot to mention this and can't edit my earlier post, but I relate to the idea of words gradually losing their meaning.

Re: Episode #0485 (13 September 2020)

A few years ago I actually did an archive binge of Kanzenshuu, downloading any episode that I felt had a neat topic. It was fun! Remember when The News was a segment?? It was really cool, a great "bus ride home" podcast.

Re: Has there even been an official "main characters" list?

Even in the Android arc she kind of hangs in the background most of the time. The overwhelming focus is on Vegeta and Trunks relationship. There’s no focus given to Bulma’s relationship with her son or with Vegeta. She’s not as irrelevant as Yamucha and Ten as she contributes with the time machine ...

Re: Has there even been an official "main characters" list?

I’m curious how we’re defining a main character? Because I really don’t consider Bulma a main character after the first arc. She fluctuates between supporting and bit player after that. Even when she travels to Namek with Krillin and Gohan she just kind of hangs in the background. Yamucha may parti...

Re: Has there even been an official "main characters" list?

The list of main characters changes a lot over the different arcs. So here's what I'd deem it to be in no particular order: Pilaf : Goku, Bulma, Oolong, Yamcha, Puar, Pilaf Gang in the anime 21st TB : Goku, Roshi, Krillin, Yamcha Red Ribbon : Goku, General Red, + a rotating collection of side charac...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 37 - DBZ episode 8-12 (CURRENT WEEK)

He definitely still carries a lot of evil momentum from the previous two arcs, it's really cool. Still doesn't make his sudden turn for five minutes in the Android Arc any less bizarre though. Are you referring to when Piccolo declares himself a Mazoku and attacks everybody just before heading off ...

Re: Dragon Ball Rewatch, Week 37 - DBZ episode 8-12 (CURRENT WEEK)

I don't think Piccolo necessarily intended to corrupt Gohan's soul or anything like that. It's worth noting that in (ViZ's translation of) the manga, Piccolo does explicitly state that he intends to forge Gohan in his own image, so he probably had hopes to turn Gohan to his side. As for the Kai red...

Re: Who is worthy to lift Thor's hammer Mjolnir?

I think Kid Goku would have had a pretty good shot at it during the Red Ribbon Arc.
