Re: Goku's fate/status at end of GT and Goku Jr. special

I just remembered that there is an article on the Tidbit section of the main site covering this very topic, so it's there if you want to read and draw your own conclusions even if it doesn't fully answer the why's and how's. Of course, as i mentioned before there never has been an official addressin...

Re: Goku's fate/status at end of GT and Goku Jr. special

I always took it as Goku "departing" and whenever I watch episode 64 and the final part of GT TV SP it brings a tear to my eye. To me, GT offered the real ending of the Classic Dragon Ball era. Modern Dragon Ball era with the 2008 OVA and Kai. There was a Dragon Ball special prior to the 2008 OVA, ...

Re: Goku's fate/status at end of GT and Goku Jr. special

@ABED Well it is also kind of ambiguous and even a little confusing given that he doesn't have the obvious signs when someone has passed into the afterlife in the Dragon Ball world with the lack of the ring over his head. I still interpret it as him existing somewhere between the living and Other w...

Goku's fate/status at end of GT and Goku Jr. special

I know that this subject has been debated ad nauseum in the fandom over the years, even going all the way back to when GT was originally airing on television but this is more my own personal analysis/interpretation on the end of the series in regards to Goku's ambiguous, almost mystical appearance a...

Re: Dub Changes That Don't Bother You...that much

Yes... It's almost as if Super regularly flanderises characters in nonsensical ways so it can nominally squeeze in tons of characters while not actually depicting those characters, instead just giving us cardboard cutouts that look like those characters to get to our nostalgia, without actually put...

Re: Airing the Orange Bricks in 4:3. Good or bad decision?

Man that was really horrid judging from the look those clips, taking fake widescreen cropped versions of a show intended to be seen in standard 4:3 and just cutting it down/stretching them out horizontally doesn't make the masters look any better.

Re: What's your most convincing comparison for why grain is important to detail?

Simple, if you remove the grain as FUNimaton did with their DNR process on the Orange Bricks/Season BDs you are actually removing detail from the picture itself.

That's why you get shots like this

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

It's just about the same as the Orange Bricks, actually. It just has less gamma blowout and higher resolution. Hm, it looks more like the Season Blu-rays. The OBs weren't smeared into a water paint style like the Season Blu-rays and the Black Brick. If it weren't for the cropping, the OBs would hav...

Not found :(
Sorry, but the page you were trying to view does not exist.

It looks like this was the result of either:

a mistyped address
an out-of-date link

I think she is overall ok to decent as young Goten, but not so sure she would really work as Kid Goku.

Re: Great Filler Scenes from the original Dragon Ball.

I quite like that filler actually, it shows how Tien is gradually growing out of the shadows of his past with the Crane Hermit and Tao Pai Pai as he is now finding his own path as a martial artist and confronting that past. The first seeds of change was after his and Roshi's match at the 22nd Budoka...

To some degree, I get the "we've seen this all and I can't be moved to have emotions" kinda thing. I talked about that very thing on the most recent podcast episode.

Re: Funimations 30th anniversary collectible home video release

The most significant point to VegettoEX's argument, IMO, has been FUNi taking full advantage of Kai to give their dub an authentic(ish) makeover (thus justifying Kai's existence in the process) and furthering this initiative through Super, the movies, and video games like FighterZ and Xenoverse.
