Re: Buying the Daizenshuu from Japan

Yeah, I think Buyee is own by Tenso because whenever I use Buyee the PayPal receipt says Tenso, but Buyee does deal more with Yahoo auctions and will help you find what you are looking for cheaper. I personally got a lot of all of the famicom Dragon Ball games for around $10 USD, before shipping. It...

Re: Buying the Daizenshuu from Japan

I got mine from Amazon, I found their prices to be better than that on eBay but I recently found a new(to me) site called buyee that lets you bid on Japanese only auctions and have it delivered to their warehouse and then they ship it to you.

What happened to the New Planet Vegeta(GT)?

Before the Earth blows up, everyone travels to that planet, and the Earth is wished back by the Namekian dragonballs, but what happened to the planet Babi wished for? Did they wish it away, or is it just a new planet in their solar system? If so, do you think people live there instead of Earth?

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

My go-to when I just want to have something playing in the background is GT. I don't know why; maybe it's the colour pallet or the music(Personally GT's Japanese music is my favourite DB score. GT's US music is my least favourite). This. I can't believe how FUNimation managed to turn the best sound...

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

Hey, sorry if this has already been asked but I was rewatching GT and was wondering if there was ever clarification on the pun for Goten's date's name in the show. Is it Paris or Palace, like I know it's Paresu, but that could be either.

Oops, I suppose I should have clarified that the Blu-Bricks are the DBZ Blu-Rays that came out in 2009 (Blu-Ray, Blu-Bricks, geddit??), while the Blue Bricks are the OG DB ones. Just letting you know, as to not cause further confusion, Level Sets came out in 2011, Blu Ray Season Set were 2013-2014 ...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Honestly, a question I would love to know as we know Piccolo is asexual but what do y'all think, is he aromantic or could he end up finding someone to date but not have sex with? He mentioned having no interest in romance after Krillins crush on 18 was revealed to the cast at the end of the Cell sa...

You don't have to be a literal demon, or more specifically a genie in Boo's case, Just letting you know because this is a Vizism because they called him a Djinn which means Genie in Arabic if I'm not mistaken, while actually his race has been called the Majin Race. Mr. Popo's a genie, Mr. Boo is no...

Re: Looking to buy all the Japanese Dragon Boxes

Still, it's an interesting quandry, no? The morality of the ovepriced rare DVD vs piracy. Naturally, the clearly morally correct choice is to buy firsthand, but this particular quandry has always interested me. Maybe that's just me, IDK. I can see where you're coming from but with buying it secondh...

Re: Looking to buy all the Japanese Dragon Boxes

First, it doesn't take passion not to pirate the series, just general respect for the creators. To be fair, when you're paying premium prices for second-hand Dragon Boxes, you're not paying to support the creators, you're paying to have a nice thing to put on the shelf. Not saying people should pir...

Re: All in all, are you happy the revival happened?

All and all I'd say yes. While I prefer GT over Super and I think for the most part Super is very underwhelming, if I have to endure Ressurection F and the anime adaptation of it to get Battle of Gods and DBS Super, I'm happy to. I love the world-building Toriyama has been doing in interviews, I jus...

Re: Vegeta is a sapiosexual right?

I think the main reason Vegeta didn't find anyone of his own kind is that all the surviving Saiyan he knows of are male and so far in the series, we have no indication that he is attracted to men. But yeah, 100% Bulma pegs Vegeta.

Re: Do you have any nitpicks about the Dragon Ball franchise?

The fact that Funimation still pronounces it Capsule CORPS(CORE) instead of CORP with a goddamned P sound. It's short for corporation and is not part of any military so it's technically supposed to be Corp. I've never once heard them say "Core" unless you're talking about DBS. In the old dub it was...
