Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

I mean, I've certainly done my fair share of complaining about this particular remaster, and I don't think that others are unjustified in complaining as well. That said, I do think some people need to come back down to earth and realize a good portion of the fandom isn't interested in fighting some ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Well would you look at that, the chapter wasn't nearly as bad as people made it out to be based on the leaks.

This is my surprised face.

Re: How do you reconcile the filler scenes of the villains in hell?

I mean, as far as filler goes...it's filler. I don't try to "reconcile" it. As far as Freeza's Hell in modern DB goes, for the life of me I can't recall where this was stated but I'm pretty sure the idea is he's still stuck in Hell because he refuses to "repent". I suppose if you care that much abou...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

Looking at those just reminds me how I am so freaking tired of the current state of Dragon Ball promo art. I can't even put my finger on what it is it's just all so...ugly.

I'm surprised we didn't get a bigger turnout. Are people finally tired of the false hope, or are we just waiting for a translation?
Yeah I think I've seen one too many "it's totally coming!!!" posts for me to get excited at this point.

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

We actually get the same ammount of pages per month as the original manga, and it took Toriyama about a year to finish each story arc for Z. The difference is that there was so much more going on in Toriyama's stories compared to this Moro arc that's just been dragging for months now. It honestly f...

Re: I still don't get why FUNI never redubbed DBZ from start to finish

As others have mentioned, money. Additionally, even if they wanted to do a redub, considering Schemmel didn't want to be part of a partial redub, I doubt he would've participated in a full on redub of Season 3 onward. And a Dragon Ball Z dub without the voice actor for Goku is kind of a non-starter...

Re: Manga UK Releasing DBZ Blu-Rays and Steelbooks

Well this pretty much confirms it imo, the 30A master will be the standard going forward. I mean...I guess it's a step forward?

I wonder how long it'll take for them to put it up on FUNiNow.

That looks...really nice actually. If FUNi released something like that in NA I might consider double dipping on Super.

Kind of interesting that the design for the front on those is a bit different from the first 3. Maybe those weren't final and they'll be updated to look like these new ones?

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

Aside from that, standards change over time. Just because we were ok with square pictures back when we had SD TVs and some people are still ok with that, doesn't mean most people are ok with watching a show that has huge black bars on both sides of the image, effectively not using a 4th (or more) o...

Re: Has Super's reputation softened or hardened since it ended?

I think the show has been off the air long enough that it has become victim to the internet's favorite activity at the moment, "Why that thing you like/that thing that's popular in the mainstream is actually really bad." So yes, I do think the show's reputation has hardened, and in some respects in ...

Re: Dragon Ball Z 4:3 Steelbooks

They're limited edition?!? Oh my god that's hilarious.

What're the odds that FUNi puts out these new 4:3 masters every few years as a limited thing to try to gaslight people into thinking "oh shit this might be the last time I can get it in 4:3 I better buy it!!"

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

Meh, I gotta be honest my opinion on this remaster has softened a bit recently, and regardless, FUNimation doing a mainstream, non-limited edition, mass market release of the show in 4:3 is a win in my opinion.

Re: Bandai Namco Esports to premier "exclusive trailer" this Sunday on Twitch

I mean it's...probably something either FighterZ related or a new game. I can't see why they'd announce a movie or TV show at a Bandai Namco Esports event.

I'd love to be wrong but this fandom really needs to stop looking for announcements in the wrong places.
