Re: I'm done with the dub

I am actually in the same boat for the most part. And to be honest, I don't mean to go full weeb or anything, but the very concept of a dub seems outdated and mostly pointless nowadays. It made perfect sense back in the day when the world was not nearly as connected and there were huge barriers betw...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

That seems so strange. Is there any evidence to it? I don't wanna come off as though I'm asking you to bow to the leaders and never question anything. Skepticism is always good. But I don't think you need "evidence" in this case. Ajay has been a respected member of the community for years, and ther...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

I've been meaning to ask about that. I don't really pay attention to youtubers/twitter-celebs so I'm out of the loop but I have a few questions Q1: how did Ajay even get his sources? As far as I know he's just a youtuber that's learned the names of the staff animating Super Q2: Why don't his Japane...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

There’s no way they’re not going to redo the Broly movie guys! That’s just stupid and wouldn’t make any sense. How on earth is it stupid NOT to do the Broly retelling? Why is that so unbelievable? The hype for Super 1 was significantly diminished when it was revealed they would be starting with the...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

One thing I really wanna highlight that I was thinking about was the dub changes. THESE are the kinds of dub changes that I enjoy and are totally fine with me, unlike much of Super, which I think has been frankly embarrassing at certain parts. This is how you do dub changes. Innocent small jokes tha...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

I'm also curious to see if they rebrand it as a new show, or just call it "Super 2", or hell, maybe even just start back up with episode 132 of "Super"...not sure if there's any precedent for that though, where a show goes off air for a full year and then returns like nothing happened under the sam...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

People place a lot of fucking faith in that whole "the original board was 3 hours long" thing from the Broly movie, but we have no proof that the stuff that made it that long came from Toriyama's writing, or if it's just extra fighting, or even just elongated shots of what we saw. If there's any ac...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" CONTINUATION - Announcement & Discussion Thread

The likelihood of the show returning in April is getting less and less likely with each passing day in my estimation. I can't imagine them having an announcement to start date gap as tiny as Super 1.0 was. I'm not particularly knowledgeable on this subject, but I'd guess that less than three months ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

I have a criticism of this film that I've heard no one else really bring up. It's not major by any means, but it's just an interesting observation. I feel like the ending beatdown by Gogeta on Broly clashes with the narrative at that point in the film. What I mean is, it seems to me that Toei wante...

And that's fine and awesome. I'm not that big of a stick in the mud, hell, I'll probably be cheering when I see it in the theatre. Just thought its weird when you zoom out and look at how its presented.

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Now that I think about it: shouldn't the wish be impossible? Porunga couldn't bring Goku back to Earth, so why would Shenron be able to teleport Broly? Bringing back Gogeta also brings up another problem (on top of the other narrative problems associated with him that I've already discussed), which...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Quick question for anyone that's seen the film or knows the answer. Is the SSB fight mostly CG? It seems like most of the footage of that fight in the trailers is CG, and I also haven't really heard many people bring it up as a highlight of the film, and I assumed that was because it was mostly CG ...

I agree with the sentiment that is being expressed by many that Full Power Broly getting stomped is weird and disappointing, but at the same time....does anyone else feel like this is really meta? 99% chance it's not actually self-aware Toei, but this is the only thing about Broly that was brought ...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

That new poster, while FAR from "bad" as some crazy people are saying, definitely exudes my single biggest problem with the new designs: the faces are very scrunched up. The mouth, nose, and eyes are consistently way too close to each other. Certain shots don't reflect this, but many do, and as much...

Re: Dragon Ball needs a New Generation?

This might be a fairly controversial opinion, but I would immediately lose all interest in DB if Goku and co. were no longer the focus. To me, Dragon Ball IS Goku. It IS this specific cast of characters. I don't think people realize just how utterly generic and bland the world of Dragon Ball really...
