Re: Is it time GT gets recognized as an alternate timeline rather than just "not canon?"

For me I love when things are connected because it give me a feel of reality, like for example a Genealogy Tree that connect you to other person and even Royalty or Historical event that lead to other Historical event. For example without 1870 war no first world war and then no world war 2 lol GT d...

Re: Are Power Scalers a cause or symptom of toxicity in the fandom?

I think Dbzfan94 meant that they created more toxicity for the sake of their argument, not literally conjuring it into the world.

Re: How much discussion of "canon" was there pre-BOG?

I remember canon talk as early as 2007-2008. GT got a lot of flack, and I remember the forums I'd frequent, YouTube comment sections, and my friends would all say "Well, GT doesn't matter. It isn't canon." I also remember people discussing certain moments from DB/DBZ on forums, and others constantl...

Re: Is it time GT gets recognized as an alternate timeline rather than just "not canon?"

Agreed but it seems like some people have a really hard time doing that for some reason I think it's the mixture of GT having so much potential and Super also being a sequel to Z that takes place in (roughly) the same time period that makes it so tantalizing to have another crack at that material a...

Re: Dragon Ball Super's Filter

The fact people can so easily replicate the filter used from episode 77 onwards is proof that it was nothing extraordinary, while the line-art filter used in Broly so far has been sort of replicated by some people but not perfectly. Turns out that the filter is actually good drawings and animation....

Re: Are Power Scalers a cause or symptom of toxicity in the fandom?

Except there’s no indication that the entire idea of battle powers is flawed. By all accounts, battle powers are in fact an actual quantifiable measure of a person’s strength in the Dragon Ball world, and that’s what’s annoying about it. If the series had suggested that all these numbers are really...

Re: Is it time GT gets recognized as an alternate timeline rather than just "not canon?"

When it comes to all the numerous "post-Z" story attempts from over the years of which GT was just the first (not to mention the movies), it's easier to consider them different continuity branches similar to Transformers. Non-canon doesn't exactly work when even to this day Toei just LOVE mining tha...

Re: Are Power Scalers a cause or symptom of toxicity in the fandom?

I think it's a contributing factor, but equally so is how serious the show was in the dub. The original show was like that a lot as well of course, but it was more... dramatic , and of course if you knew your Dragon Ball then you'd be well aware that the show wasn't only that (as shown with the Giny...

The many changes thanks to super has Gt reduce to an alternative timeline by this point so stop trying to bring it back.

Re: How to spot bootleg DBZ kai releases

unless you're looking for something like the Yamamoto-scored Blu-Rays. Which is what most people who buy Kai would be looking for. The Manga UK Blu-Rays are still the only way to go for getting a new factory-sealed copy of episodes 1-39 with that score, although I have a feeling with Funimation buy...

He's vaguely lizard-like so his genitalia is probably held inverted within the body. If his species doesn't reproduce asexually as well, of course.
Cell has Frieza's cells too.

Re: How to spot bootleg DBZ kai releases

I'm not well-versed in the whole buying from eBay or individuals from Amazon side of things, so this may seem like a rather dumb answer but buying from official sites and trusted retailers is always a good way to go, unless you're looking for something like the Yamamoto-scored Blu-Rays.

Re: Missing Creditless Openings and Endings

There's a combined version of Movies 1 and 3? How does that work? oO The through arc of the DB movie trio is that Goku leaves his home with Bulma, meets Roshi, returns to him for training, then competes in the Tenkaichi Budokai. So I imagine the opening adventure is reduced a fair bit and the secon...

Re: Missing Creditless Openings and Endings

Has Dragon Ball opening 2 been released creditless anywhere? I was under the impression they only put out opening 1. No, the creditless version of DB opening 2 has never been released or exported, but it's partially used in Goku's Traffic Safety, Goku's Fire Brigade, and the trailer for DB movie 3....

I love the Toriyama futuristic buildings with the spheres and egg shapes and cylinders. Is that type of architecture based on anything, or is it unique to Toriyama?

Re: Missing Creditless Openings and Endings

Have some of them actually been released and I just missed them? Maybe on an odd foreign DVD release or whatever. I suspect the reason why we have what we have is due to Funimation wanting creditless text for things like the original Dragon Ball anime. I think it's no co-incidence that those exact ...
